Supreme Source: Dog Food That's as Real as Can Be

Supreme Source: Dog Food That's as Real as Can Be

My dog, Oakley, loves trying different types of dog food. He’s not a very picky eater, so it’s fun to provide him with different flavor options so his meals always offer something a little new and exciting. Since I like to switch up Oakley’s dog food from time to time, I decided to start serving him Supreme Source® dog food. The flavor I picked out was the Salmon Meal and Sweet Potato recipe.

Trying the Plant-Based Non-GMO Awesome Burger from Sweet Earth Foods

Trying the Plant-Based Non-GMO Awesome Burger from Sweet Earth Foods

Have you ever had a plant-based burger? Up until recently, I had never had one, but I had heard so many great things about them. I knew I had to try one, so this past week I cooked up the new Awesome Burger from Sweet Earth Foods. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when cooking the burger, but the process was super easy – I just took the patty out of the package and seared it in a non-stick pan on the stove. Once it was done cooking, I placed it on my favorite brioche bun and added some ketchup, mustard and a sliced pickle.

Make Your Next Move Easier with CORT Furniture Rental

Make Your Next Move Easier with CORT Furniture Rental

Is there anything better than getting keys to a new house?! I remember how it felt when my husband and I were handed the keys to our home. It was such a great feeling to know that all our time spent house hunting had paid off and that we found a place that would be all our own. While my husband and I live in Michigan now, I was no stranger to moving around from place to place growing up. I lived in different cities, states and even in a different country. It definitely took some time to get used to my new surroundings every few years, but after a while I started to handle those transitional time periods of my life like a pro.

How I’m Preparing for the Future (and the Unexpected) with an Emergency Fund

Remember when you were younger, and you had a piggy bank where you’d stash away all of your money in hopes of cashing it in for something you had your eye on? Maybe you wanted a new toy. Maybe you wanted a new game. No matter what it was that you were saving up for, you set a goal and put away a little money here and a little money there to reach it. Now that you’re an adult, saving money follows the same concept, right? A little saving can go a long way and help you reach your goals.

Get your Dishes Sparkling Clean with the Bosch 800 Series Crystal Dry Dishwasher

Get your Dishes Sparkling Clean with the Bosch 800 Series Crystal Dry Dishwasher

My husband and I live in a fairly old house and the appliances we have could use a little TLC. Lately we’ve been discussing which appliances we should replace and getting a new dishwasher was definitely on the list. Sometimes we do dishes by hand, but we prefer to load our dishes into the dishwasher and clean them that way. The dishwasher that we have now how a broken knob, so we have to turn it a certain way whenever we want to run a new cycle. In addition, it’s pretty loud so we only run it during the day when we’re home.

Four Back to School Looks from Candie’s at Kohl’s

Four Back to School Looks from Candie’s at Kohl’s

Summer is winding down and back to school season is almost here! Starting school again after a great summer can be so bittersweet. While it’s sad to leave the freedom of summer behind (no homework), getting back to school means starting a new routine, making new friends and most importantly, learning new things.

Before a new school year starts, it’s always a good idea to stock up on new supplies, books and best of all, new pieces to add to your wardrobe. I’ve been shopping at Kohl’s for years and I love the variety of tops, bottoms, dresses, and everything in between from the Candie’s collection in the Junior’s Department.

Everything You Need to Know About the Egg Freezing Process at CCRM

This month my husband and I are celebrating our third wedding anniversary! With every year that goes by, we talk about having kids and when we’d like to expand our family. We both want to wait a few more years until we welcome a baby so we can do things like buy a new house, travel and spend time together as just the two of us. While it would be great to conceive and have kids naturally down the road, we know that it’s important for us to explore our options and ensure that welcoming children is something that we’ll be able to do in the future. One of the options that we’re considering is egg freezing.

Cruising Around Michigan in the Mazda3

Cruising Around Michigan in the Mazda3

Is it just me, or is this summer flying by? It feels like Memorial Day was just yesterday, yet we’ve already celebrated the 4th of July. Every year and every season seems to pass in the blink of an eye. Speaking of seasons, summertime in Michigan is by far my favorite. There are so many cool places to go and things to see. The weather this summer has been great – 70- and 80-degree days with plenty of sunshine. Warm weather is definitely a welcome sight after the harsh, cold winters we experience in the Mitten State.

A few weeks back over the 4th of July, Mazda was kind enough to let me take their Mazda3 Sedan for a spin! I currently drive an SUV, so getting behind the wheel of a sedan was a weird feeling at first, but it was something that I got used to quickly.
