Upgrade Your Tailgate!

This post is sponsored by Sam’s Club the place to tailgate, I mean get your tailgating stuff, Sam’s Club. But honestly, I could tailgate right there! Awesome food samples and cheap hot dogs. What more could a fan ask for? Well a lot more it seems.

Now days, tailgating is a competitive sport. And it’s not just about the food anymore, it’s also about the entertainment. I love checking out some of the setups when I am cruising the parking lots. At first, I thought the people with the TVs were crazy but when you’ve got a cross fan family. Well they almost become a necessity.

So if you’re going to go big, here are some tailgating upgrades from Sam’s Club.

(Cold) Snap; It’s Fall

Thank you to Febreze for kicking off my Fall and sponsoring this post.

Happy Fall Yall

The seasons changed this week, and with it came a cold. Which is a major bummer. Because usually with the advent of Fall I am in whole hog the second the first leaf falls to the ground. I get my Martha Stewart on, tossing leaves on tables and whipping up pumpkin bread.

But so far I have spent most of my time sniffling and downing cups of cold care tea. Which is important because I need my sense of smell to enjoy the only Fall thing about my house the smell…

Please Join Us for the Miracle Marathon

Why The Miracle Marathon
Rarely have I felt as strongly about a blogging project as I do about the one I am embarking on with the girls next week. Being a lead blogger for the Miracle Marathon isn’t just about numbers or awareness or charity for me. It’s about thanking the people who helped my daughter through surgery and continue to help her. Having a Children’s Hospital in town can make all the difference in not only the experience but also your child’s health.

I firmly believe that the innovations and support system Miracle Network hospitals are able to offer make a huge different in the well being of the children in their community. And the Miracle Marathon is such an appropriate way to raise money because it’s about improving your own health by getting active every day while you raise money for a great cause.

And what does this money go towards? Look at some of the things my daughter experienced while being treated at MU…

Let Someone Else Do the Dishes

Thrilled to partner with Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser on this post. All overly gushing opinions are mine alone. I love this stuff!!

Happy Monday! I know, I know, it’s actually Wednesday. But with Fall comes seasonal allergies which shut down my body for a day or two. When I emerged from the allergy haze, I was disappointed to find that the two days had not magically erased the weekend house hangover. Tell me you know the kind, where you have a fabulous weekend full of impromptu dinners with friends and unexpected play dates. But then you wake up with a house that looks like this:
Weekend Mess
Not pinnable Life
The girls are still working on keeping their rooms clean and my husband, who is actually way cleaner than me, doesn’t know where half the stuff goes. Thank goodness for mommy’s little helpers…

Bedroom Updates

It’s easy to create a decadent bedroom when you have plenty of money to splurge, but where’s the challenge, or the talent, in that? It’s far more impressive to achieve grand results with a diminutive bank balance, so don’t despair if you can’t afford that $1500 window treatment. Hard work, a keen eye for design and some thrifty accessories are often all you need to update your bedroom.

After seven homes, I consider myself quite the sanctuary space update expert.

Target Wedding : The Unexpected Adventure

We are now 12 years into our marriage. OMFG!
It hit home for me this weekend when we planned out our supper club menu. We could have never predicted 12 years ago the unexpected adventures we would take. I remember when we registered, it was such a clear picture of how we each saw our married life to be. We were intent on equipping ourselves for the adventures to come as a married couple.

I only wish we had thought more about quipping ourselves in a literal sense. Though our china and crystal is beautiful, they are rarely used in our real life. Not even for Supper Club! What is more important to us is travel and look at the cool stuff that we could have registered for

Hacking Education with the AIO

#spon: I am in a partnership with Intel. Through this partnership I gain access to content, product, or other forms of value.

After a touch school year last year, I have strong feelings on education, mainly that you have to have a strong hand in directing your child’s path. There have been numerous articles in the past year on “hacking education” as well as incredible home school innovations. And while we are not ready to take on all or even most of the advice, we are rethinking how we learn.

And it’s only natural that we integrate the AIO into that.

Tailgate Time!

Friends, when Country Outfitter asked me if I wanted to post about tailgate fashion my answer was a resounding HECK YES! I admit, I don’t know too much or get too worked up about college football but tailgating on the other hand… sign me up!

Tailgate Fashion With Country Outfitter

What could be better than hanging out with your friends, playing games, eating great food (calories totally don’t count if they are eaten outside,) and having some hometown pride. So I knew I had to post today on this very important holiday: show your colors day! My city is head to toe in black and gold.

Flip the Script With Target Pharmacy Rewards

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own.

Is everyone back to school now? It seems like the waves of friends posting back to school pics have been coming for awhile now. And now we are in our second week, eek. Where did the summer go?

But if anything makes me realize that summer is over for realsies, it’s the cough and cold infestation. The girls are usually pretty healthy, we even call one bionic since she never ever gets sick, but the husband and I catch everything they don’t, Basically they are the carriers and we are the victims.

The only upside to this constant sickeness is the Target Pharmacy Rewards program.
