My family and I have several trips planned this summer, all involving the outdoors. We all take our eye health very seriously (all 3 of us wear glasses and/or contacts) so we know the importance of keeping our eyes in the best condition possible. When we spend out time outdoors, we take certain measures to protect our eyes from the sun. We use a combination of hats, sunglasses (making sure that there is some type of UV protection available- I even bring the generic glasses to our optometrist to make sure they’re good enough), umbrellas, seek out shelter and more. When seeking out shelter, we normally head in during the mornings and evenings because that’s when your yes are more likely to get extreme UV exposure. Also, grass, sand, and water are all more likely to reflect UV rays that can be even more harmful! As the days get longer, our UV exposure is increased. We’re talking spring through fall, you have to take extra steps to protect your eye health. I’m also a big fan of the site: Fast Facts for Your Health: The Sun & Your Eyes: What You Need to Know from ACUVUE®. There’s a ton of information there that’s extremely useful when it comes to your eye health. It’s also important to talk to your doctor about UV protection.

Experts say it is difficult to isolate the exact amount of damage that Ultraviolet Radiation (UV) imposes on the eye over long periods of time. However, a number of studies have shown that the effects of UV radiation are mostly cumulative and may increase the chance of …Continue Reading…

Recently I told ya’ll about my trip to a local Bob Evans to try their new Broasted Chicken Dinner. Congrats to my giveaway winner T!

Needless to say it’s been on my mind (and my family’s) ever since we had it! Bob Evan’s Broasted Chicken is not your typical broasted chicken! Their Broasted Chicken is marinated for hours and each piece is hand-coated in a blend of secret spices (I tried to bribe the chef for the recipe, and no dice. You can’t blame a girl for trying!). The broasted chicken is pressure fried it until it’s the perfect combination of crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside and piping hot. Three-piece Bob Evans Broasted Chicken Dinner for $9.99 includes starter (you must try their broccoli cheese soup- it’s ridiculously creamy), entrée, dessert (Three words: Chocolate. Bread. Pudding.) and your choice of endless bread (their rolls and biscuits are TO DIE FOR). There are so many ways to customize your dinner with the three courses, your possibilities are endless. I love it when I have options- especially when they’re tasty options! I chose the buttery mashed potatoes with my dinner (minus the gravy, because I think it’s weird.) and they were delicious! The fact that this dinner is so affordable AND pleases even the pickiest eater (my kiddo) makes it a huge win in my book!

Since Bob Evans is such a great restaurant that is known for its good food and hospitality, it makes for a great outing for families that are celebrating Father’s Day, anniversaries and even birthdays! My family likes to celebrate Saturdays at Bob Evans icon wink Have you been to Bob Evans lately? Did you get to try the new Broasted Chicken Dinner? If so, tell me what you thought about it and what options did you choose?

Figleaves.com swimwear review and discount code!

Default post image
I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Figleaves.com. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

I’ll admit, it’s tough finding a swimsuit that fits, is stylish, supportive, and modern at the same time. It’s a long list of requirements that I have, and one that Figleaves.com can handle! Every year my family and I head to Florida (from Ohio) for vacation, so having a new swimsuit is a must. I usually head to the stores in the mall, where I have a limited selection and horrid dressing rooms with garish fluorescent lighting. Needless to say, it’s not fun. But with Figleaves.com, I can use their accurate fitting guides and their pages upon pages of swimwear that’s categorized with what I’m looking for, it’s EASY to find exactly what I’m looking for! And I know I’m going to look really good while being a busty girl (there’s nothing worse than having a swimsuit giving you spillage), because they carry cup sizes from AA-GG. They even offer bra-sized swim separates to ensure a perfect fit for all body types. Figleaves.com styles vary from classic one-piece swimsuits, to fashion- sassy bikinis, to chic tankinis – meaning that Figleaves.com literally has something for every body! Figleaves.com offers over 200 designers of lingerie, swimwear, apparel, sleepwear and more from popular designers such as Vix and Aguaclara, and even private labels and exclusive items from brands like Midnight Grace, Just Peachy, and the self-named Figleaves label.

I chose the Sophina Icon Lattice Back suit, by Figleaves.com to review, and I have to say, I love it! The detailing is incredible- with the lattice …Continue Reading…

There are many different reasons that a person might find themselves in need of a quick and easy reliable paternity test. Some individuals may find themselves wondering which individual actually fathered one or more of their children, while others may want to find out if they are really required by law to pay child support for a baby that their significant other is claiming they have fathered.

Due to the sensitive nature of DNA testing, some individuals may want to perform a paternity test from the privacy of their own homes instead of heading to the doctor’s office for anticipated paternity test results – learn more. Thankfully, DNA testing has come a long way in modern times, and it can now be done quickly and easily from the complete privacy of one’s own home.

Our HoneyBaked Ham store- in a rain storm

Every holiday for me is such a rush. We have family out of town, so I’m always going back and forth to stores- in search of the right gift- and the post office- to mail them off to our loved ones!

HoneyBaked Ham has been perfecting their products for over 50 years, which makes me confident that I’m serving only the best quality food to our guests. It’s a meal everyone I know enjoys, and makes those moments extra special. …Continue Reading…
