Welch's PB&J Snacks

It can be really hard finding a new snack for you or for your kids. I know I am guilty of just grabbing the same things that I always do. Luckily Welch’s asked if I wanted to try their new PB&J snacks. I love peanut butter so I definitely wanted to try this out.

Cinnabon amazing Cinnaomon Rolls and More

I’m a girl that loves to shop so when I got the opportunity to go shop at the Mall of America, I couldn’t turn it down. One of the places we were asked to stop at was Cinnabon. Who can say no to Cinnabon? Not I, and I was so excited to try some of their new items.

Since I hate to shop alone, my friend Anna went with me on the trip. We had gift cards and plenty on them so we could get multiple items. We decided that we would get drinks first then come back later for food. That we enjoy it twice.

It really was a great plan. I ordered a Strawberry Chillata. I don’t like whipped cream so I asked for none on mine (i know i’m weird). I have no idea what was all in my drink but it was amazing.  I’m sure there are way too many calories in the drink, but I didn’t see the nutritional value on it so i’m just not thinking about it. I just know that it was delicious and I so could drink one all the time.

Anna ordered a berry chillata and thought it was good but at little to many mixed berries for her taste. She tried a little of mine and loved it. I’m not sure exactly which berries were in her drink but she said it was very berryey (that’s a word right?). The drinks were very large so for around $5 you definitely get your monies worth.

Right before we left the mall we stopped back in at Cinnabon and ordered are to-go items. We had just eaten supper so we were saving it for dessert.

I ordered the classic center of the roll, while Anna ordered the caramel center of the roll. Everyone love cinnamon rolls but we all know our favorite part is the center. Well Cinnabon sells a bowl full of just that. All you get are pieces of the center. Simply put, it was ooey, gooey and very yummy.

It’s really a good thing that there isn’t a Cinnabon close to me as I would be there all the time, especially ordering that drink. If you don’t know where one is, you can find one on their site under locate bakery.

Win a Beautiful Fall Mongrammed Bag from The Pink Monogram!

It's fall yall!! I just love fall and could not wait to bring out the fall clothes! Unfortunately here in Florida, it's often too hot to wear true fall clothes, so many times we depend on accessories!

The Pink Monogram just sent me this monogrammed scotch grain beautiful bag in Orange. It is perfect for fall, and is big enough that that I do not need to carry another separate diaper bag like I have been doing lately with my smaller bags. This is perfect for all of my stuff plus diapers, wipes and a sippy! 

This beautiful bag is wonderfully made, and a quality product! My mom loved it so much she asked why I had to get my initials monogrammed on it because she wanted it as a hand me down! I personally love the custom touch of the monogrammed initials and just love the bag all around! It is naturally stain resistant, and I can tell you it is a lovely bag! At only $46 for the bag and customization, it is a steal!

"...Tough faux scotch grain leather which is easy to clean with soap and water, or Steelechasin durable ballistic nylon which looks like canvas and is naturally stain resistant."

Asics Gel Pursue

Almost 3 months ago I had a hip replacement. As i’m recovering it was recommended that I get a new pair of walking shoes as my walk will be different and I needed new support. I reached out to Asics to do a review on one of their shoes.  I was so happy when they agreed to send me their new Gel- Pursue shoe.

Aveda Naturally Straight

Every once in a while I need to try out a new shampoo. My hair just gets overly used to a product and it doesn’t look as good. With the help of SheSpeaks I was able to try out Aveda and their Naturally Straight line.

Brieftons Spiral Slicer Giveaway

My husband is very carb sensitive so I am often looking for a low carb meals for him. That's not always so logical for the rest of the family though. We have two little boys who love their pasta, so I have been trying to think outside the box for him. That's when I heard about using zucchini in place of pasta noodles! I've been very excited to try this and was lucky enough to get this cool spiral slicer through tomoson to make him zucchini noodles with our spaghetti!

Moissanite Jewelry

I had surgery at the end of June and the hospital had to cut my wedding set off my finger as it wouldn’t come off. It got destroyed which was not their fault, just how it happened. Since then I have been looking at new rings to replace it but haven’t found the right one yet. I was thrilled when Forever Brilliant contacted me asking me to take a look at their moissanite rings. I was able to choose from a few and couldn’t wait to receive it.

more from Cottonelle wet+dry system

Let’s talk bums (again). So a couple weeks ago I talked about the Cottonelle wet and dry products. I was asked to share with you again what I thought.

So I have been using Clean Care Toilet Paper and also their Fresh Care Flushable Cleansing Cloth for a couple weeks and loving it. We have had to buy the refills of the cleansing cloths but they aren’t very expensive and oh so worth it.
