Peter Pan 360~ A Must See Show!

 

peterpan360

Last night my family and I entered the big white tent that currently resides at Tyson’s Corner Center. We quickly discovered this is not your average play, or circus tent for that matter. This spectacular show takes place in a 360 tent with an automated set and computer generated imagery. It is like a live action 3D show! To say my family and I were blown away is an understatement.

Do you or someone you know live a gluten free lifestyle? Or maybe you are just interested in eating healthier for the health of it? Either way, if you have not heard of NoGii or Elisabeth Hasselbeck, you are about to! Gluten is “a substance present in cereal grains, especially wheat, that is responsible for the elastic texture of dough. A mixture of two proteins, it causes illness in people with celiac disease.” Even people who do not have celiac disease opt for a gluten free lifestyle for healthier living. NoGii is a line of gluten free, high protein products created by Elisabeth Hasselbeck.

NEMye3g3VuXNQM_1_1

I had the privilege of attending the Inside Out All Access Event this past Tuesday night. If you are going to see 1 movie this summer with your family, make it this one!

First let me tell you how awesome of a job that Fathom Events does at putting fun events like this together! We felt so special wearing our exclusive lanyards all night 🙂 Not to mention sitting in

the comfiest recliners at Regal Cinemas. We felt like we were getting the star treatment, and we were, everyone in that theater was! Seeing a movie before it comes out is always fun, but getting exclusive gear to go with it is even better! Bravo to Fathom Events and Regal Cinemas! If you get a chance to attend a Fathom Event at a Regal Cinema, do! You will not regret it!

A quick meal, little preparation, wholesome and delicious! Sound like a meal you and your family would gobble up? Let’s face it, we all have that night of the week where going through the drive-thru or ramen noodles sounds like the best choice. A quick, healthier solution is waiting at a grocery store near you. Modern Table Meals understand  just that and have produced a solution to the busy week night dinner scramble. At Modern Table Meals, they believe in feeding wholesome foods to your families. They also believe healthy food can be yummy, too!

So what is Modern Table Meals? It is a pasta meal kit! Everything you need is in the bag: bean-based pastas, dried veggies, sauce, and seasoning so you can customize the flavor. It is available in four flavors: Mediterranean, Italian, Southwest, and Teriyaki. Southwest is my favorite! My family, including my kids, gobbled these up!

Bob’s Red Mill ~ Why I Am A Customer

Bobs_Red_Mill_Natural_Foods_Logo

Over the past month I have been sampling Bob’s Red Mill Flours. I have to say I was not crazy about the price, but once I learned more about this company and what they stand for, I knew that customers are getting their money’s worth. The ingredients and care that go into each bag is why I will continue to purchase the Bob’s Red Mill brand over others.

Did you know? “Bob’s Red Mill America’s Best Baking Flour™ is unbleached, unbromated white flour milled from certified organic, U.S.—grown wheat. It is not enriched with any additives. Bob’s Red Mill Ivory Wheat™ Flour is 100% stone ground from organic whole grain hard white wheat berries. Hard white whole wheat is a new variety of identity-preserved wheat that is quickly growing in popularity. America’s Best Baking Flour™ Organic Whole Wheat Flour is 100% stone ground from certified organic, U.S.—grown hard red. Nothing is lost in the process of grinding the flour—one pound of wholesome whole wheat berries go into the mill, and one pound of nutritious whole wheat flour comes out. The bran, germ and endosperm of the wheat kernel are all included. Our Organic Whole Wheat Flour is rich in dietary fiber and provides 7 grams of protein per serving. It is a good source of essential minerals including phosphorus, magnesium, zinc and iron.” This is just a peak into the wholesome goodness that Bob’s Red Mill has to offer!

  IMG_5967

Our family, as others say, is an adventurous one! We love going on day trips, familiar favorite spots, and of course, exploring new ones! This year we made the decision to get Gold Season Passes to Virginia’s premiere amusement part, Kings Dominion. It made the most sense for us to purchase the gold pass since we know we would want to come back again and again. [Read more…]

Elleda Skincare ~ Vitamin C Serum

Over the past weeks, I have been using Vitamin C in my daily skin care routine, and I have noticed great results! My skin can always use a little more moisture and who doesn’t need some more Vitamin C? I was looking forward to trying out Elleda’s Organic Vitamin C 20% Serum Formula from Elleda Skincare, and it didn’t disappoint! The serum is a potent mix of 20% Vitamin C, Botanical Hyaluronic Acid and nourishing Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil that work together to support healthy, beautiful skin! After only the third day I noticed my skin was tighter and more vibrant. It is not oily or greasy; it blends so evenly into your skin. [Read more…]
