Boy by Wall

We have a few summer birthdays in our family, but the one that definitely gets the most attention is our teenage son, Noah’s.  Noah will be 16 in just 2 weeks!  And you know what that means…it’s driver’s license time!  His car is being delivered to us on Saturday, but because I love shopping for gifts, I couldn’t wait…I had to get new some special new driver gifts to go with the car!  Today I’m going to show you everything that went in to making his New Driver Gift Baskets!

Delicious Fall Gifts and Free Kettle Corn

When it comes to gifts, the only thing I can think of that’s better than money or a gift card is food!  I’m proud to partner with Gourmet Gifts.  It is a great go-to place to shop for your favorite foodie, whether they love the savory or the sweet!



I recently got to try their Chili Cheese Puffs. These are so delicious! They are cheese puffs with a nice spicy kick, which I love! I could honestly eat an entire bag in one sitting!

Gourmet Gifts also has a selection of healthy living products like protein bars, antioxidant bars, nutrition bars, and meal replacement bars.  I had a chance to try the Pineapple Meal Replacement Bar.  I LOVE pineapple, and this bar had great flavors and a nice texture! [Read more…]

Tips for Immune Support + Gift Basket Idea

Immune Support

We had a sensational October, weather-wise.  Here in the south, the fall season is usually a bit unpredictable.  It’s either really hot or really cold, and there’s no in between.  You can be wearing shorts and a tank top one day, and then the next week you’re breaking out a sweater and a wool coat.  Seriously! For the entire month of October, Noah wore shorts every day and only had to break out a light jacket last week, and then BAM! On Halloween night the low was 33 degrees!  Eek!  With this drastic change in weather, my first concern is immune support and staying well.
