My daughter turned 11 this weekend and we threw her an Ice Cream Parlor themed party. Her and her friends were so spoiled to indulge in theses oh-so-cute and delicious cookies. How adorable are these? And they went perfectly with our theme! These cookies were custom made-to-order by Alex, owner of The Cookie Momster Kitchen in Manassas, VA. I contacted Alex in regards to my daughter’s party. She was quick to respond, asked about details, made these adorable ice cream cone cookies, and even individually wrapped them! It was a very easy, stress-free process. Did I mention these made my daughter’s… Read More
Colgate® has always been the Toothpaste of choice for our family. We trust the brand and their products. When I received the new Colgate® Optic White® Toothpaste in the mail, I was excited to try it out and see how the results would work for me. Let me tell you, after using it for almost a week, results are clear to see! In fact I noticed brighter teeth in 3 days! The toothpaste itself smelled and tasted great. My teeth felt fresh and looked pearly white in no time. It really is dazzle without the hassle! It’s so nice to get a… Read More
Recently, I had the opportunity to shop via Peapod in my yoga pants, from my couch. Need I say more? 🙂 Peapod is an online grocery shopping system for Giant. You do all of your shopping online and Peapod will deliver it to your door, or you can pick it up. I don’t know about you, but anything that saves me from taking all three of my children and my ginormous shopping list to the store is a beautiful thing! This is a great service for the busy family trying to spend less time running errands, and more time together.
My family and I had a great time at this year’s Prince William County Fair! It is hard not to enjoy a beautiful summer night, filled with the laughter of those around you. My family and I loved indulging in some fried oreos and watching our kids laugh and squeal in delight as they rode traditional fair rides. There was something for all of us to do and take part in. The magic show and animals were also a huge hit with my family! Fun rides, tasty treats, amusing shows, great local vendors, what’s not to love?! If you get… Read More
Do you ever find it hard to consume your 8 glasses of water a day? I know I sure do! I love to drink tea, soda, and coffee, but when it comes to water, I am always looking for ways to jazz it up. I love adding a lemon or a lime or using fruit infused water bottles, but that can get tiring and you can’t always have those items with you on the go. Thanks to SweetLeaf® and Moms Meet, I found a simple, easy way to give my water more flavor! SweetLeaf® Water Drops™ are natural, convenient, sugar-free and gluten-free water enhancers. You… Read More

My family and I love the National Harbor. It is a frequent hangout spot for us. There are so many great shops and restaurants at the Harbor and one wheely cool attraction 🙂 This past weekend my family and I ventured up into the 180′ tall wheel that takes residence at the National Harbor and took in the breathtaking view! It is a must see for the whole family. You feel as though you are slowly gliding through the air, round and round as you take in the sights. From the wheel you can see the Washington Monument, U.S. Capitol, Alexandria, Prince George’s County,… Read More
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… Read More
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,… Read More
