Game time with progresso Chili

We’ve been watching some big games on tv, and there are still a few more big one to go!  And with the winter weather finally upon us, there’s no better time to celebrate game night with a nice bowl of Progresso Chili.  Stews and chilis are some of my favorite comfort foods, and that’s just one reason I love serving them for game night!  They are also foods that you can serve to most anyone, and if more people show up to your get together, there’s usually enough to go around!

Progresso Chili comes in convenient pouches and can be whipped up in minutes using your microwave or stove stop. And they are thick and feature large chunks of meat and beans!  It’s a great way to to dine on a dime! It’s also goes great on a buffet of appetizers and other game night foods, and is the perfect take along item for pot lucks! [Read more…]

Protecting Your Lips with ChapStick® and a Giveaway

Disclosure: The ChapStick® product, information and gift have been provided by Pfizer Consumer Healthcare.

Winter weather is finally here, and it often takes a toll on us!  For example, you may have noticed that I have not posted since Friday! This is because I’ve been battling a terrible cold and cough.  This combined with terrible migraines made it a rough few days for me!  The winter weather can also be quite rough on our skin and our lips.  One way to ensure your lips are always protected is by using  ChapStick®.

Protecting Your Lips with Chapstick

Anytime you have a migraine or a cold it’s very easy to get dehydrated, and one clear indication that you may be dehydrated is by looking at your lips.  If they are dry, chapped, and cracking, then you should definitely drink some water. [Read more…]

Planning Your Days with Progresso Light Soups and a Giveaway

Disclosure Progresso Progresso Light Soups

A few days ago I talked about some of my goals for 2016, and part of those goals centered around the word focus, as in focusing on the tasks I have to do each day and staying on track.  The best way to do this is to be organized and to plan out your days.  As with most things, there’s no one-size-fits-all way to plan your day.  A lot of people thrive on order and having each hour of the day mapped out on their planner, and a lot of people have jobs that actually depend on a schedule like this, but if you work from home, or if you’re a homeschool mom, this type of scheduling may not work for you.  That is why I am trying more of a Goal Based Schedule.

Rock Someone’s Holiday – Rockwell Tools Giveaway – DIY Room Building Tutorial

Rockwell BladeRunner X2 Review and Giveaway

If you are a DIYer or have a handy man spouse, than today’s post is definitely for you! If you read my blog enough, you’ll often hear me refer to my husband as my Mr. Fix It!  Anytime I need something fixed or improved, or I want to build something, I just tell him my idea, and he puts a plan in to action.

Most recently we’ve been working on a new “Project Room” in our outbuilding. I would call it a craft room, but my husband will be working in there too, and “craft room” just doesn’t sound like a very manly place to be. (Haha!)  So it’s a project room, or workshop, if you will.

As with any project we take on, we need tools to fix up the room.  One tool that has been very helpful with this project is the BladeRunner X2 from Rockwell Tools. [Read more…]
