SIMI Winery as seen at the Aspen Food & Wine festival

 *I was sent 2 bottles of wine free of charge but all opinions are my own.

IMG_4640 

Sometimes you just have one of those days…but for me it’s been one of those weeks! My husband went out of town, all 4 of my kids got sick, our A.C. broke, my brakes went haywire, none of my kids wanted to sleep at night, and on and on. It’s just been a tough couple of days…and did I mention one of my kids fever got so high I had to call 911 and have 6 firemen standing in my bedroom hovering over my  5 year old during the middle of the night?? 

As a mom, sometimes it’s nice to unwind a little bit. This week I decided to head to my parent’s house in the mountains. It’s so cool up there you don’t even need air conditioning, I have a lot of help with the kids, and once they all go to bed I got to enjoy a glass or SIMI wine. They sent me 2 bottles of wine and so far I have enjoyed the bottle of the Sauvignon Blanc. I have been pregnant back to back for so long I have not gotten to enjoy much wine, but I really enjoyed this wine.

IMG_4646

I am kind of a rookie when it comes to wine tasting, all I know is pass me the fruity stuff! I don’t like really strong wines, just something that is smooth and something that I can enjoy after a long day. This night was pure perfection…all kids were asleep, well, the weather was amazing and so was the wine.

Now that I live in Colorado, on my bucket list is to visit the Aspen Food & Wine Festival. I didn’t get to attend this year but SIMI winery was one of the attendee’s and I am so sad I missed it because it sounded like so much fun with amazoing wine from SIMI winery and the food they paired with their wine.

Next up I am going to try the other bottle they sent me and I will let you know how it tastes!

Juggle Bubbles Review

 

IMG_4487

*I was sent a Juggle Bubble set to review but all opinions are my own.

My kids love “As seen on TV” products and to me I applaud these companies for having an idea and running with it far enough to land it on tv!

I know I always have ideas but never follow through with them and this one is such a fun one!

It was actually kind of funny because we were watching TV and a commercial for Juggle Bubbles came on and my 5 year old sighed ”I wish we could have some Juggle bubbles to play with”….that’s when I remembered these had just came in so we ran to the mail that had piled up while we were on vacation and found the box of Juggle Bubbles.

The Juggle Bubble kit includes 2 gloves, the no pop bubble solution, and bubble blower and a bubble blower tray.

I wondered if this was just normal bubble solution so I pulled out a bottle of regular bubbles I had on hand and the no pop Juggle Bubbles. I have 2 boys and each took a jar of bubbles. The no pop bubbles really didn’t pop and they were able to actually handle the bubble but the regular bubbles popped immediately!

It’s really easy to play with this bubble activity set and my kids loved it!

IMG_4493

All you do is pour some of the no pop solution in the bubble tray, dip the large end of the bubble blower in the solution, blow a bubble, shake off any excess solution and flick the blower up to release the bubble. The bubbles are fragile so you have to wear the special gloves and handle them with care but you really can throw them in the air, catch them, and do all kinds of fun tricks!

My boys had over an hour of fun with these bubbles when normally with a new toy, they give it about 10 minutes of play.

These would be such a fun birthday gift to give or receive and you can order a set for only $10!

Go here to shop!

Hallmark Buzzworthy Cards are here!

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

My husband recently has to go on a business trip and the way we connect when is he gone is laughter. When he is gone I either, text, or email him funny pictures or meme’s throughout the day just so he knows we are thinking of him!

Now Hallmark has created BuzzWorthy cards that you can share just like you would all the viral content on the web, except through a card! There has always been something special to me about getting a card in the mail or hand delivered but I am not really the sentimental type card giver so these cards are perfect!! #TrendyCards

photo 11

Before my husband left on his trip, I went snooping around Walmart for some funny cards for my husband that I would tuck away in some of his clothes in his suitcase he was taking on his business trip.The fun thing about these cards is they are time sensitive. They will rotate the cards every few weeks so if you see a card you like, grab it before it’s gone! And since they are rotated frequently, they will be revelent to what’s funny now!

I loved that my husband called me the first day he was gone and we both had a laugh over the first card he found. Before he left, he forgot to dry some of his clothes, so we decided to take them in a trash bag and dry them when he landed. So I threw one of the cards in with the damp clothes because I knew he would open this bag as soon as he landed. It’s so hard on us to be apart because we are really a good team, taking care of our 4 kids so getting a special card in his suitcase, really made him smile and know we are missing him! I can’t wait until he finds the rest of the cards!

And if you love shopping for cards like I do, you will want to sign up for the Hallmark rewards program. You get rewarded for buying Hallmark cards in places like Walmart.  You get 1 reward for every 5 cards you buy so you might as well get rewarded for shopping with Hallmark.

Walgreens goes “clip” less!

 This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

I love a good coupon because I love saving money but since having our 4th little nugget, the time it takes to clip coupons has vanished. I am lucky to get a shower each day much less sit at my table, go over the weekly ads, and cut out the coupons I need.
I am in love with Walgreens new clip less coupon program! Walgreens is offering manufacturer coupons that you can virtually “clip” and load straight to your card and save even more money at Walgreens!
It’s so easy to use, just download the Walgreens app here on your phone (I already had it downloaded but had to update it to get this new feature).
I have a Walgreens just a few steps from my house so whenever we need something, that is usually the place I can quickly go.

I decided to check out and see which coupons were available on their app at this time and decided to clip some coupons for lip gloss, deodorant and baby food. It took a few seconds to clip them and they were automatically on my balance rewards card so when I went to check and and scanned my rewards card, those coupons immediately came off! So easy!
I also noticed these coupons on the walgreens app had a lot of the same coupons as I noticed in the sunday paper so it was the same coupons I would have used anyway, I just didn’t have to actually cut them out!

To start virtually clipping your coupons this is how to do it!
1. Download the Walgreens app
2. When you download the app, make sure you link it to your balance rewards card.
3. If you don’t have a rewards card sign up in any walgreens or do it online here.
4. Once your app is linked to your card, start clipping! Once you find coupons you like and clip them, they are automatically on your card!

receipt

These are the items I bought the other and and by taking a few seconds to clip the walgreens coupons on the app, I saved an extra $5! These are items I would have bought anyway so an extra $5 in my wallet sounds good to me.

People ask me all the time if it’s hard to learn how to really save money and I tell them it’s not, you just have to put some work into it and take advantage of great store programs like these clip less coupon from the Walgreens app. It barely took any extra time to “clip” these coupons and I saved an extra $5.

Here are a few tips on shopping at walgreens to get the most bang for you buck:
1. Use the Walgreens app and the clip less coupons
2. Sign up for a balance rewards card because that is the only way to use these coupons and to take advantage of their sales.
3. Shop their in store sales! I noticed the lipgloss was buy 1 get 1 50% off plus their was a coupon on the app so I combined a sale and a coupon to save the most money.

Hyland’s teams up with Target in the Made to Matter program!

Loni Krieg winner of the flash giveaway! you have 24 hours to message me on Facebook!

Disclaimer: I am a Hyland’s Homeopathy Ambassador and receive various products and gift cards from Hyland’s and promotional partners at no cost to me.

I love Hyland’s and have been using their products for years and I love that they are teaming up with Target with the Made to Matter program!  

The Made to Matter program is a  collection of brand name products in beauty, grocery, household, health & baby that are cleaner, fresher, safer & smarter. Hyland’s is one of the featured brands in the Made to Matter program which is a HUGE honor and I am behind that choice 100%!

Read more about it here! 

Hyland’s was started as a homeopathy pharmacy in 1903 in Los Angeles California and has steadily grown since then.  In 2011 Hyland’s was the first company to introduce cold medicine for babies 6 months plus. I know with my kids, navigating the cold medicine aisle can be scary because most say the kids need to be 2 years plus to take them but with Hyland’s they make cold medicine for babies 6 months plus and I feel safe if my babies needed their medicine.

 Yesterday I got the chance to shop at Target, by myself for 15 minutes. I can’t remember the last time I just got to take my time and I found the Hyland’s teething tablets in the baby section because my youngest son is keeping me up with a mouth full of growing teeth!

I started using Hyland’s teething tablets with my first child and now 6 years later I use their products all the time and have a whole cabinet full of all of their products. They produce products that I feel safe giving to my kids.

Check out this video below about Hyland’s!

  

  

This past week, sickness has overtaken my house. It has been nothing short of miserable, stressful and downright scary. All 4 kids have their temperatures soar way to high for my comfort but I was able to take comfort and using some of Hyland’s products to be proactive and get us all on the road to recovery. This picture was taken today and the first time we got out of the house and everyone was well!

These babies health falls squarely on my and I feel comfortable using lots of products in Target’s Made to Matter program, and especially using Hyland’s!

GoPicnic healthy meals on the go review

 *I was sent 2 Gopicnic meals to review but all opinions are my own.

gopicnic  

We are constantly on the go and my kids love those lunches in a box but the only problem is all the ingredients in them aren’t exactly on my favorite list so I have been looking for healthy lunches we could use on the go. From soccer, to ballet to those early morning drives up into the mountains, sometimes we just need ready to eat meals.

With GoPicnic, you can enjoy meals on the go but will all natural and healthy ingredients! I was in target the other day and spotted these meals and had to stock up for my family! 

You can order these meals online here or go here to the store locator to find a store near you that carries these!

They offer, vegan, gluten free, all natural, kosher, and snack kits for you to choose from. GoPicnic meals are made with clean ingredients and they contain no trans fats, no high fructose corn syrup (HFCS), no added monosodium glutamate (MSG), and no artificial flavors or colors.

When you are deciding which meals to choose, make sure you read the labels carefully because not all of the Gopicnic meals are gluten free.

These meals need no refrigeration, heating or preparation so they are ready to go when you are! 

Recently we took a trip back to my hometown in Louisiana and my husband and I had been on this healthy eating diet for over a month. As we embarked on this trip, there was no shortage of fast food along the way but we wanted to stick to eating and feeling good. My husband asked if I had packed any healthy food and I pulled out these GoPicnic meals. He ate the croissant meal and I ate the Maple turkey and sausage. Not only were the delicious but were filling! I have to say I didn’t share a bit of mine!

Now to the fun part! I am giving away 2 of these meals to 1 lucky ready!

All you have to do is enter the easy rafflecopter below. And if you can’t wait, score $.50/1 meal with this hot coupon!

Go here to get your coupon!

Kamik Rain Boots Review

 

kamik 

There is 2 things I love about this picture:

#1. The Kamik Rain boots. They are a dream!

#2. I am wearing shorts! That’s right folks, I have lost 63 pounds since having baby #4 and am finally in pre-baby, and almost pre-wedding weight! I haven’t worn shorts in years and this year I get to wear shorts….with my rain boots! I kind of love this look with the shorts and boots. I normally wear pants but if it’s raining you have to stuff your pants in the boots and it’s a whole ordeal.

I have heard great things about Kamik rain boots and was so excited to try out a pair. I have owned lots of rain boots but most were the cheap kind and never lasted long but now that we live in colorado, and face rain and snow a lot, I decided I needed some sturdy boots but didn’t want to sacrifice being fashionable.

I was sent the Flora boots in the black and orange floral color. I love this print because it can go with just about any outfit.

A lot of people might not know when it snows in Colorado it’s not always that cold so you don’t always need these big heavy boots. I can tell I will wear these not only in the summer but even in the milder winter months.

These boots are:

  • 100% Recyclable
  • Waterproof Synthetic Rubber Rainboot
  • Decorative Side Buckle
  • Removable 6mm EVA Kamik Comfort Insole
  • Kamik’s Rubber VOYAGE Outsole 

Go here to see where you can buy a pair! 

Kamik has been in business since 1898 so they have boots making down to a science! They not only have rain boots, but all kinds of other boots you need to check out.

IMG_4189   

I ordered a half size up in these boots since I might want to wear thick socks with them and they fit great! I would suggest that with any boots especially if you are a half size like me.

 You would rather them be a smidge big than to small. 

I am in love with these others shoes too like the pink girls sandals ore these amazing green boots!

 

Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 12.19.01 PM Screen Shot 2014-07-08 at 12.19.13 PM 

When it’s time to buy my kids new winter boots, I will get them from Kamik because they are such good quality. I have 3 boys and if I buy them good quality boots, they will last throughout all 3! I am in love with these Kamik rain boots, not only because they are a fun pattern but they are such high quality and have a great insole they will not only keep my dry but comfortable. 

These boots are also a part of their recycling program and you can find out more about that here.
