I was sent free samples of this product for my honest review.
I use to drink sugary sodas every single day until I realized I wasn’t 16 anymore and after having 4 kids I can no longer eat or drink whatever I want and still feel good. I cut out all the sugary drinks and have switched to sparkling water and feel great. I used to not even like drinking water but then we moved to the mountains and I don’t really have a choice anymore. I have to stay hydrated and keep my kids drinking as well so I have been looking for yummy sparkling waters that we can all enjoy.
I am in love with the new smartwater sparkling water that is vapor-distilled bottled water with added electrolytes for a cool crisp taste. We have a little drink fridge in our kitchen so our guests don’t have to wonder where are drinks are and I am filling it with smartwater sparkling water this summer.
smartwater sparkling launched in one-liter bottles in los angeles, miami and new york city in Q4 of 2015. since then, it has expanded to additional markets throughout the country and is also now available in 20 ounce single serve bottles and 6-packs.
smartwater sparkling can be found in large store, mass, drug, food service and on-premise outlets (ie. restaurants, hotels), clubs and e-commerce outlets (ie. Amazon Fresh, Fresh Direct) alongside other premium sparkling waters.

I was sent free coupons for this recipe. Thanks Jennie-O!
This easy recipe features savory ground turkey served on a bed of tomatillos, onions and peppers. My husband and I are doing the Whole 30 diet right now and this is something we can have and it’s so tasty. This is a healthy recipe without having to sacrifice flavor. When we moved to Denver, I didn’t know how popular green chili is and I can say it seems like the state food!
Since my husband and I are eating healthy, Jennie-O ground turkey is one of your go to meats. It’s such a lean meat that our whole family enjoys. Jennie-O sent me some coupons so I could try out this green chili recipe and it did not disappoint. You have to try it out!
This recipe is from Jennie-O.com.
First get a large pot and brown your turkey.
Next grill your peppers.
Then put them in a covered container. Let stand 10 minutes. Remove and discard skins. Place tomatillos and peppers in food processor and process until smooth. Stir in salt.
In large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add turkey. Cook turkey as specified on the package. Always cook to well done, 165°F as measured by a meat thermometer. Add onion and garlic and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Add cumin and coriander. Stir in tomatillo mixture and broth. Bring mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer 20 minutes. Stir in cilantro leaves.

We were provided complimentary adventure park passes.
Since we moved to Colorado 5 years ago, we made a plan to travel around the state and see what all it offers. Our first stop this year was Durango, Colorado. My family and I visited Durango when I was younger but I don’t remember it to well so I was excited to go back! On one of the days we decided to visit the adventure park at Purgatory which is the local ski resort. It’s not to far out-of-town and the scenery is gorgeous.
You can do individual activities or opt for the total adventure ticket which is what I would recommend. If your staying the day, it will be cheaper to buy the total adventure ticket and do all the activities.
We started with the ropes course and the boys loved it! I am glad my 2nd youngest went with my older nephew because he was able to help him along the way. While they were doing the ropes course, my little girl did the Water Runner underneath and she loved it!
Next up was the Bungee Trampoline and mini golf! My daughter is fearless and she hasn’t found a bungee trampoline she doesn’t like.
I would say the alpine slide was a hit! So many of the kids could ride by themselves so they all went up together and all came down with smiles.
We couldn’t skip the zipline and it sure made this mommas heart beat fast because it was so high. They had to climb to the top of a building them they descended over the resort area. It looked like so much fun, I wish I would have done it.
My nephew Owen was the only brave one to do the gyro chair! He wasn’t scared a but though.
And how could I forget about the mechanical bull!?
What good memories we made this day. We will certainly be back!

I am a bread kind of girl to the core! I make homemade fresh bread at least once a week and we always have bread on hand from the store as well so I was so excited to try out the Ozery Bakery bread especially since they are bring their all-Natural bread line to Denver. I was sent some Morning Rounds, Snacking Rounds, and OneBuns.
We gobbled up every bit of the bread they sent us! My nephews were in town so we were showing them around Colorado and we needed easy and quick snacks on the go and these were all perfect! Not only for the kids but they helped me keep up my energy while hanging with all my nephews.
All of their products are also low in sugar, high in fiber, non-GMO and heart healthy so I felt confident to serve them to the whole family. I don’t know if I could pick a favorite of all of these yummy breads but the snacking rounds were incredible! They were so soft and fresh like I had just baked them in my own kitchen. The flavors they came in were so delicious which included apple cinnamon, cranberry orange and muesli.
If your local to Denver like me, you can get them at your local Sprouts or Natural Grocers. To find a store near you, go to their store locator here.
If you have never heard of this bread, take my advice and try some, you won’t regret it! And listen up families with back to school kids, these would be great snacks in your kids lunches or you make sandwiches out of their bread. I always have a hard time finding healthy snacks for my kids at school or for an after school snack but I have found a great option with Ozery bakery breads!
