Are We Really Drinking in the Calories?

Thanks to The Motherhood for making this conversation possible. #DPSBalance Last week, I was asked to attend a webinar hosted by the Dr Pepper Snapple Group (DPS). I always go into these kinds of things pretty skeptical. I expect to hear about how great the company is and I just know that I’m going to get frustrated […]

Grillin’ and Chillin’ with Ribera y Rueda

With Spring upon us and Summer quickly approaching, it’s not too soon to get thinking about how you’re going to spend those beautiful evenings. For me, kicking back with a glass of wine and a few buddies is a great way to relax. After a Winter of saying no,  Ribera del Duero y Rueda want you […]

Signature Moves for Spring

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #MySignatureMove #CollectiveBias It’s springtime and that means that it’s time to get dirty.

Of course, that means that we have become much more sensitive to have them in our foods and we have become avid label checkers. Still, there is a lot that I don’t know […]

I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #ImagineSpring We love adding OshKosh clothes to the kids’ drawers and closets. They loved their long sleeved t-shirts that we added to their drawers in the fall. It seems like winter was […]
