Slow Cooker Dinners: Hawaiian Sliders #EasyPrepMeals

I am a member of the #CollectiveBias  Social Fabric® Community. This shop about #EasyPrepMeals has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. Dinner time seems to come so quickly at our house.  Before I know it I have 3 hungry kids who need to be in 3 different places in an hour.  My slow cooker has really come to my rescue.  However, let’s not kids ourselves, sometimes I don’t have the energy to even think about dinner ideas like, what type of seasonings or sauces I plan on using on my meat I have in the freezer.  Thanks to Campbell’s Dinner Sauces, coming up with slow cooker dinners is a breeze, like these Hawaiian Sliders.

This sweepstakes and Post about adding color to a Tween’s Playroom, is sponsored by Wayfair.com I have not done much decorating to my kids playroom since we moved to our home almost 8 years ago.  While it was cute and overrun with toys for the last several years, the kids are getting older and I realized the couch area was looking pretty dull.  I am not looking to redecorate the entire Tweens play room just want to add a pop of color.

Milk Bone Brushing Chews #Giveaway

This is a sponsored post but all the opinions are 100% my own. The Milk-Bone® dog products, information and VISA gift cards have been provided by the Milk-Bone® brand. It is hard enough to get my children to brush their teeth twice a day.  I am constantly reminding them.  Well Chloe can not brush her teeth by herself and honestly if any teeth get neglected in this house it is the poor dogs.  Lucky for us she is a chewer and we provide her with toys that help with her tartar build up.  We all give our dogs treats so why not give them treats that brush their teeth at the same time?

Bring Spring Scents inside with #FrebrezeSpring

This post about Spring Scents is sponsored by SheSpeaks and Febreze. All opinions expressed are 100% my own. Wow if feels like Spring started all at once.  The grass greened up, the trees are all budding with new flowers.  I played my first tennis match outside and wore a tank top.  There is nothing more beautiful this time of year visually and then you add the scents of spring and it takes one back to playing outside as a child.

Summer Road trips and Sweepstakes with #RollwithCooper

This post about tire deals is brought to you by Cooper Tire. All opinions are 100% mine.

If I had a nickel for every mile I spent in the car  carpooling children to school and afterschool activities.  Should I even mention all the weekend sporting events and play dates I could probably let my husband retire from his job and live off those nickels, they add up fast.  Seriously though, all that mileage in the car can really wear out your tires.  To keep your family save on the road you need to have good tires.

Celebrating Gotcha Day with #GoodLifePet Dry Cat Food

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop about the best dry cat food has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser. When you adopt a pet from the shelter you may not know their real birthday. As you probably have read in previous cat posts, we adopted our cat Lacey from a shelter as a barn cat so we did not have a birth date. Instead we decided to celebrate Gotcha Day, the day we adopted her. Coincidently,  this post about the best dry cat food is the same week of her Gotcha Day and we will be celebrating with GOODLIFE™ Cat food.
