I was compensated for this review of Papa Murphy’s and their new Buffalo Chicken pizza featuring Frank’s Red Hot. All opinions and statements remain 100% my own.
Some of our friends were moving this weekend and they asked us to help. Since I have 4 kids and no babysitter, I volunteered to be on food duty. It’s so hard to coordinate everything when you are moving much less getting everyone who helped something to eat.
When we got to the new house, I ran over to the nearest Papa Murphy’s to order their Take “N” Bake pizzas. I just told them what I wanted on the pizzas. They assembled them and all I had to do was take it over and bake it. Yum, fresh hot baked pizza at home!
Papa Murphy’s is teaming up with Frank’s Red Hot this Fall as they introduce their newest pizza: Buffalo Chicken! This brand new pizza is made with a spicy buffalo sauce made with Frank’s Red Hot, grilled chicken, mozzarella, green onions, provolone and cheddar cheese and then drizzled with Creamy Garlic Sauce. My friend, who we were moving, said he hadn’t eaten at Papa Murphy’s a lot but after tasting this new Buffalo Chicken pizza, he said he will definitely be a repeat customer! It is seriously good. We were all trying to figure out who would get the last piece 😉
And while supplies last, they will be handing out free samples of Frank’s Red Hot sauce when you purchase this pizza.
We had around 10 people helping in the move so I ordered 1 Large Buffalo Chicken, 1 large pepperoni, 1 salad and 2 sodas. If you’re helping people move, they might not know where all their utensils, plates, etc. are. I brought plates, napkins and utensils with me so we wouldn’t have to dig for them. I forgot the cups but luckily my friend is super-organized and found some easily. Oh and my total was only $25 which is a steal to feed 10 people!
So how about a fun giveaway? 1 lucky ready will win a $25 Papa Murphy’s giftcard and a bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce!

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for the TB Blood Test. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I would have never thought I would have to be tested for TB. But when I was first married and becoming a personal trainer, as part of my certification, I had to be tested for TB. I was a little nervous because I heard it wasn’t a normal blood test. I was right because they did an under the skin test to see if I had TB. I wasn’t worried that I would have it since I was up to date on shots and from my knowledge not exposed to it.
I was right and the test results were negative. It wasn’t a scary experience, I just didn’t know what to be prepared for.
Now there is a TB blood test and it is the only available method of testing for TB with completely objective results. Other tests, such as the skin test, are subjective and open to visual interpretation. So the test I had was the skin test and even though I know I don’t have TB, it seems this blood test would have been more accurate.
You might think not many people need TB tests. But if you are trying to adopt, they might require one or if you’re becoming a nurse, or if you’re going off to college. And did you know every 3 seconds a new infection happens and 30% of the population is infected? I had no idea!
I know with our family we want to keep ourselves and kids healthy so we want the most accurate tests available when testing for something like this. And the good news is if you tested postive for latent TB infection, there is medicine you can take to rid your body of the inactive bacterie before it becomes full blown TB.

Growing up I was always in the kitchen with my grandmother. She cooked alot and one thing I will never forget was her stainless steel measuring cups. At the time I didn’t think much of it. But now that she has passed, I have been looking for a set for myself. Everytime I use these they remind me of her and all the wonderful memories spent in her kitchen.
Over the years I have bought lots of plastic measuring cups but they eventually get worn and I have to throw them out. But these stainless steel measuring cups will last way longer. These won’t bend, rust or break. They are nested measuring cups so they can stack within each other in order to preserve space in your drawers.
Go to amazon.com to buy a set for yourself.

If you know me, it’s no secret my car is normally a mess and if it’s clean, it’s an accident. I have 4 kids and 3 of them are in soccer. I normally lug around all our soccer gear all week-long. And now that my oldest is 8, he doesn’t always smell so fresh. So I have at least 3 pairs of stinky soccer shoes in my car most days, coupled with food thrown on the floor and who knows what else, my car is a hot mess.
Why has no one told me about these Yankee Candle® brand car freshness before? I heard about them recently when I was in Walmart today and decided to check them out. They have some of the vents in my store near all the automotive items and for the car jar’s they are actually in the laundry section! I had to have a car jar as well as a few vents just to see how much ammo I needed in my car.
The fun thing about the car jars is you can hang them just about anywhere; in the car or any smaller space. I am targeting my garage next. We had some bears rip open our trash shed recently so now our trash is stationed in my garage which is super fun and smelly.
The car vent clip is really easy to install. Just take them out of the package and admire the Yankee Candle® brand shaped pull tab before pulling it out. I mean, come on, how cute is this?
After pulling out the silver pull tab, just clip it to your vent! Easy as pie.
As you can see, it’s small and not bulky and annoying but actually looks cute in my car! And it has a clear window so you know when to buy another one when the fragrance is all gone. The fragrance is released when you turn on your air. So when your air flows, so does the fragrance. And just note that it works at it’s best when the air coming out of the vents is over 70 degrees. I left it on in my car all morning, as well as a car jar hanging from my rear view mirror. My car smelled heavenly in the morning.
And if you want more or less fragrance just adjust the easy slider on the back of the clip.
For the Car Jar, I decided to hang it in my car as well. I mean, I need all the help I can get. I will just get a few more for my garage. Plus I don’t always have the air on. So this way I always have good smelling fragrance in my car whether I have on the air or not. The way you know it’s time to replace the Car Jar is it will shrink when it is time to replace. When the fragrance shrinks below the label, it is time for a new one. Pretty easy right??! It is infused with natural essential oils so it has such a pleasant fragrance.
When it comes to fragrances, I got the Macintosh and Clean Cotton. They also had a fragrance called Pink Sands which I almost grabbed too. That one will be my next purchase when one of these run out.
What’s your favorite scent from Yankee Candle® brand fragrance?

Sweet Tea is one of my most favorite things in the world. I grew up in the South and if your tea isn’t sweet, then it really isn’t tea anyway 😉 We moved to Denver where you can’t find sweet tea to save your life. And I have caught my husband ordering unsweet tea lately. While I was mildy horrified, I guess drinking tea no matter what the flavor is acceptable. I can’t tell you how many times I have tried to order sweet tea in Denver and the waitress offers to bring me some sugar to put in my iced tea. Umm, no thanks. I will just make some Lipton Iced Tea at home.
To be properly prepared to drink tea at any occasion you need to stock up when it’s on sale. Luckily for my readers near a Safeway, you need to shop the Stock up Sale starting 9/30 to get your 100 ct Lipton Iced Tea on sale.
We love to have a pitcher of iced tea on our table almost at every meal. Also when we all get to sit down to eat, I love to print out fun questions or “Table Talk” so we all get a chance to talk at the table.
I made a fun printable for some kid’s table talk. Just click the link below and print out the table talk questions. Cut the questions on the dotted line and let each person at the table answer 1 question. I made 10 questions in case you have a large family or have friends over.
Now that you have some great conversation starters, now you need to stock up on some tea so you can Refresh Your Meal Routine with Lipton Iced Tea.
I found my Lipton Iced Tea on the tea aisle like in the picture below at Safeway.
You can make regular tea or sweet tea, but I decided to give y’all one of my family’s favorite sweet tea recipes called “Grace Tea”.
First grab a medium sized sauce pan and fill with water almost to the top.
Put 6-7 Lipton tea bags in the water and turn it on high.
As soon as the water is about to boil, turn it off and let the tea steep for 10 minutes. It might look a little foamy.
While that is steeping, squeeze out 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. You can use the bottled kind but do not use lemonade. You will need about 6 lemons to get a cup full. And don’t forget to dig out the lemon seeds if they fall in the cup.
Add 2 cups of sugar to a large pitcher. It needs to be larger than a 2 qt pitcher. I used a gallon pitcher.
Pour 1 cup of white grape juice on top of sugar and also pour in your lemon juice.
Then pour in your steeped tea. It’s ok if it’s warm because you want it to melt the sugar. Then add enough water to reach the 2.5 qt. Or you can fill it to the 3 qt. line if you like your tea not as sweet.
Stir and enjoy! This tea tastes good cold or warm but most people will probably prefer it cold.
There isn’t much like a nice Fall day and dinner with the ones you love the most.
A little fun decorating tip, my daughter and I went outside and gathered up some fallen leaves from our yard. Our leaves are right in the middle of changing so the green and yellow leaves on the table are gorgeous.
Before dinner I asked my kids to cut up the Table Talk questions for us and set one by each person’s table setting.
We had lots of laughs and fun talk because this is the kind of dinner my kids will remember, not the kind spent in front of the tv.
What a perfect dinner with beautiful people.
