Getting Friendly with American Greetings eCards

American Greetings ecards, Taylor Swift ecards

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of eCards from American Greetings. All opinions are 100% mine. I really WANT to be that person who sends lovely handwritten cards in the mail but y'all I am going to be honest here: I am just the WORST at mail. Seriously, I have the best intentions but terrible follow through.  So when American Greetings asked if I wanted to try out their new eCard membership I said an enthusiastic yes because I figured that since I spend so much time online already, sending an eCard would be a fun and easy way to connect with friends and family - one that I could manage without a mailbox … [Read more...]

Getting Our Garden On With Gro-ables

kayla aimee product review, review bloggers, mommy review bloggers, blogger product reviews

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Gro-ables. All opinions are 100% mine. I'm a girl who likes to garden. This is kind of surprising given that in the first week after I got married seven years ago I burnt macaroni and cheese. The microwaveable kind. And now we grow our own food and I make meals from scratch. It's like I grew up or something.  One of my go-to herbs to grow is Basil, mostly because I use it in a ton of recipes. Miracle-Gro asked if they could send me some of their new Gro-ables which are pre-packaged biodegradable seed pods. They have just the right amount of seeds, mulch and … [Read more...]

Lucy Dog Loves ALPO®


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ALPO® Brand Dog Food. All opinions are 100% mine. Our dog Lucy is pretty old and set in her ways. She's sort of like the Dowager Countess of the doggie world. We made the switch to ALPO’s variety dog food a few months ago and she took to it quite well, which surprised us because she's normally so persnickety about her food. ALPO®  invited us to try them out and we agreed because their dog food is 100% complete and balanced and the smaller 5.5 ounce cans of ALPO® Chop House is a great size for little dogs. And Lucy Dog is a chihuahua so she is pretty … [Read more...]

Making Meals Easy with an eMeals Coupon Code!


I've been wanting to try out eMeals for awhile now, mostly because meal planning: I hate it. It's pretty time consuming for me but also necessary given Scarlette's dietary restrictions. I've been wanting to try them out but was a bit hesitant due to aforementioned dietary issues - but I found out that they can customize your plan based on your dietary needs! So I'm going to try them out for 3 months and then I'll let y'all know what I think. I think it will be hugely helpful for me to have a plan that I don't have to spend hours creating and that still takes into consideration things like the fact that Scarlette is dairy-free or that we try … [Read more...]

Getting #CartonSmart with My Favorite Muffins


This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Carton Smart. All opinions are 100% mine. When I got an email asking if I wanted to Be Carton Smart I was pretty intrigued. We try to be fairly eco-concious around here and we typically try to make as much food from scratch as possible. I mean, I make our own chicken broth now, y'all. This is hardcore. We don't have many things in cans and in fact, we had given up some of our old favorites mostly because we don't buy canned food anymore. Food like: Jellied cranberry sauce. I know, I know, you can make cranberry sauce from scratch. IT'S NOT THE SAME. I like … [Read more...]

#HappyStartsHere with ALPO

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of ALPO® Brand Dog Food   . All opinions are 100% mine. Lucy Dog does this funny thing where, when she is done eating her food, she takes her paw and hits the empty dish with it really hard. Sometimes J and I will be laying in bed and hear the little CLINK of the dish hit and laugh because WHY DOES SHE DO THAT? We do not even know. Is she giving us her seal of approval? Like "Yes, good meal folks. Same time tomorrow night." Is she angry about the portion control situation?  Does she just enjoy making music after a hearty meal? I have no idea because she … [Read more...]

Hosting A Happy Holiday Party with Bed Bath & Beyond

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bed Bath & Beyond. All opinions are 100% mine. It's T-Minus 4 days until Christmas and I have baked exactly nothing.  I love holiday entertaining and somehow this year the time has slowly slipped away from me. I feel like we just put our tree up, even though it was nearly a month ago now! Probably it's the fact that I have a three year old to chase after. That's another reason I haven't baked anything yet, because there is nothing that girl likes more than baking. Well, except Buzz Lightyear. Given the choice between Buzz Lightyear and a cookie, I'm not … [Read more...]

Clinton Kelly, Macy’s & Me: The Ultimate Girl’s Night Out


This post is written in partnership with Macy's Who doesn’t love Clinton Kelly? I mean the man gave us so much knowledge during his tenure on “What Not to Wear” he should get some sort of award. Like how sometimes actors get honorary degrees from legit educational institutions for making movies and stuff. It was from him that I learned to employ a structured jacket to make any outfit look seamlessly pulled-together. Thank you Clinton. And he taught us to accentuate the smallest part of our waist while making fashion “rules” easy to understand and apply to everyday life.  The man is a fashion genius for all of us non-fashion savvy … [Read more...]
