A Trip To Calvert Marine Museum - Solomons, MD

Last week, we decided to visit one of the local museums in Maryland. We didn't tell the kids where we were going, just in case the older kids shot down the idea before they even gave it a chance. My husband and I had talked about going there in the past, but never had the time to make it down there.

The Calvert Marine Museum is located in Solomons, MD, at the mouth of the Patuxent River. The museum features displays, aquariums and exhibits that highlight the history and ecology of Southern Maryland.

DISCLOSURE: I received a free sample from BzzAgent for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

I'm just a couple years away from turning the big 4-0. I've definitely noticed changes in my skin and have added more steps to my skincare routine to try and fight those signs of aging. Something that I haven't tried yet is a retinol treatment. Thanks to BzzAgent, I had the chance to try Paula's Choice Clinical 1% Retinol Treatment.

Kikkoman Grilling House Party #KikkomanParty

DISCLOSURE: I received free products from House Party in order to host a Kikkoman Grilling Party. All opinions are my own.

When the weather is nice, we tend to grill a lot. We probably use the grill at least a few times a week. We'll cook burgers, hot dogs, brats, steak, salmon and chicken. Sometimes we'll just season with salt and pepper, other times we'll use a marinade or grill seasonings. A week ago, I had the chance to host a Kikkoman Grilling House Party and tried out two of Kikkoman's marinades: Teriyaki Marinade & Sauce and Teriyaki Takumi Original Sauce.

Fourth of July Crunchy Bleu Cheese Coleslaw - RECIPE + GIVEAWAY #SeeTheLite

DISCLOSURE: This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.

Fourth of July is almost here! For the past few years, we've been going to my sister's house for a BBQ on 4th of July. I usually bring something and I had been struggling with what to make this year. I usually bring a dessert, but I thought I'd do something a little different this time and make a side (though knowing me, I'll probably throw together some sort of dessert, too!). 

I love coleslaw, but often at stores you find just the plain cabbage and carrots slaw. I wanted to make something a little different. I remembered having a coleslaw from Harris Teeter once that was really good. It wasn't really creamy like other grocery store deli coleslaw. It was crunchy, but I coudn't remember what it had in it. I just remembered it tasting really fresh.

DISCLOSURE: As a member of the Parragon Book Buddies Program, I received free products in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

Summer's here and I'm so ready to hit the beach! We're about 40 days away from our annual trip to the Outer Banks and we can't wait! So, we were pretty excited to see that the theme of our July Box from the Parragon Book Buddies Program was "Summer Fun."

This was our first box from Parragon and my 5-year-old was super excited to be getting a box of goodies just for him.
