Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by Lunchbox. All opinions are my own.  As summer is quickly approaching and Memorial Day is around the corner, I always think of BBQ’s and finding light and fun recipes to make. I enjoy summer food much more than winter foods because grilling is so much easier and does not heat your house up. In addition, my husband loves to grill more than I like to cook in the kitchen!  Continue reading

Drop Your Pants for Underwareness Movement


I am not sure if it’s a part of getting older or if it is because after holding the urgency to go to the bathroom for a long time has made my bladder weak. I have heard that if you hold it for a long time it can make your bladder weak and then you will have bladder leakage. I have had my bladder leakage problem for a few years and I used to be embarrassed, but have learned I am not alone and many are experiencing the same problem. I sometimes do not have the urge to go to the bathroom, but the minute I cough I feel that dreadful trickle come down. I sometimes sneeze and if I sneeze more than 1 time in a row there it goes! I often wondered how can I go out in public if I keep peeing myself and what to wear for bladder leakage? Well, thank goodness for this new product by Depend called Silhouette Active Fit.

Best Places to Travel on a Budget Part 1



This is my first post to Traveling on a budget. I have compiled a list below of some places I have found that I think are good choices when you want to travel but do not want to spend a fortune. Traveling on a budget does not necessarily mean you cannot enjoy dining out because not all restaurants are overly expensive. One thing to keep in mind is, if you are traveling on a budget you have to cut your costs somehow and that may mean bringing your own food and doing picnics at parks instead of dining out. This will be a series of 2-3 posts.  Traveling on a budget also does not mean you are not willing to spend money either. Your budget may be 3,000 for a vacation while some may have a smaller budget. Along the series of posts I will be listing many different types of places and attractions for all budget sizes.  Continue reading
