Saying #HelloSummer also means saying hello to busy, action packed schedules – from endless games of tag, hours in the pool and long summer camp days. To help keep the little ones you love full and fueled from one activity to the next, I’m putting a summertime spotlight on Chobani Pouches and Tubes.

Did you know Chobani Pouches and Tubes:

  • Are Packed with Protein. With 2X the protein compared to the leading kids’ yogurt and a good source of calcium, Chobani Kids™ Pouches and Tubes are the perfect snack for keeping bones and muscles strong all summer long.
  • Contain 25% less sugar than leading yogurt tubes. Chobani Kids™ Pouches and Tubes are proud to have 25% less sugar, but still 100% delicious.  No sugar crash here! Plus you won’t find any high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors, modified cornstarch or preservatives that are often added to other kids’ yogurt.
  • 12mg of Omega-3 DHA.  As a great first food for babies 6 months and up, Chobani Tots™ pouches have 12 mg of Omega-3 DHA, a source of beneficial fatty acids.

To inspire you to say #HelloSummer along with Chobani, I am running a giveaway for a #HelloSummer #chobanikids Chobani Pouches and Tubes Prize Pack.

My 10 Favorite Greek Gods – Beyond The Lightning Thief!

Percy-Jackson
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

 

I have always been a fan of history and mythology. That being said I read The Lightning Thief when it first came out ten years ago. Rick Riordan did an amazing job at bringing together mythology and present day together with characters that all readers could relate to. All of the books that came to follow  were action-packed thrill rides that not only were entertaining, but they were also educational.

To celebrate the 10 years of The Lightning Thief I wanted to share my Top Ten Favorite Greek Gods (In no Certain Order)!

Gods-around-Zeus

  1. Zeus  King of the gods, the ruler of Mount Olympus and the god of the Sky, Weather, Thunder, Law, Order and Fate.
  2. Poseidon – God of the Sea, Rivers, Floods, Droughts, Storms, Earthquakes and Horses.
  3. Hermes – Hermes was the god of Travel, Messengers, Trade, Thievery, Cunning Wiles, Language, Writing, Diplomacy, Athletics, and Animal Husbandry
  4. Hephaestus – Hephaestus was the god of Fire, Metalworking, Stonemasonry, Sculpture and Volcanism.
  5. Hades – Hades was the King of the Underworld and the god of Death, the Dead, and the Hidden Wealth of the Earth
  6. Athena – Athena was the goddess of Wisdom, Warfare, Strategy, Heroic Endeavor, Handicrafts and Reason
  7. Apollo – God of Music, Healing, Plague, Prophecies, Poetry, and Archery, Apollo is most notably known as the Sun god.
  8. Aphrodite – God of Love and Beauty
  9. Dionysus – God of Wine, Parties and Festivals, Madness, Civilization, Drunkenness and Pleasure.
  10. Ares – Ares is most famously known as the god of War, Bloodlust, Violence, Manly Courage, and Civil Order

ABOUT THE SERIES

Percy Jackson is a good kid, but he can’t seem to focus on his schoolwork or control his temper. And lately, being away at boarding school is only getting worse–Percy could have sworn his pre-algebra teacher turned into a monster and tried to kill him. When Percy’s mom finds out, she knows it’s time that he knew the truth about where he came from, and that he go to the one place he’ll be safe. She sends Percy to Camp Half Blood, a summer camp for demigods (on Long Island), where he learns that the father he never knew is Poseidon, God of the Sea. Soon a mystery unfolds and together with his friends–one a satyr and the other the demigod daughter of Athena–Percy sets out on a quest across the United States to reach the gates of the Underworld (located in a recording studio in Hollywood) and prevent a catastrophic war between the gods.

 

CELEBRATE PERCY’S 10TH ANNIVERSARY with The Lightning Thief, the book that started the internationally best-selling Percy Jackson and the Olympians series.

 

THE LIGHTNING THIEF has sold millions of copies worldwide, appears on school reading lists nationwide, and inspired a major motion picture. Accolades include:

Get Great DresSports Luxe Rockport Shoes This Fathers Day!

Rockport-Shoes
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

I wear dress shoes every day, as I work in a professional environment, so having quality shoes that make me look good is a must. On top of this though, I want shoes that make my feet feel good as well. This is not always easy, as I seem to always have to search and search to find the shoe that fits me well. This though has not been the case with the Rockport shoes that I have tried in the past or with this pair that I am sharing with you today.

Rockport shoes just released a brand new line of contemporary shoes called their DresSports Luxe line. This collection which is available at Zappos.com. DresSports Luxe fuses modern dress shoe design with sport technology, bringing you comfort and style.

Rockport-Shoes

After receiving these shoes I did a bit of research and came to find that the original DresSports collection came out in 1983 and Rockport continues to put the shoes to the test through differening styles and varieties. On top of this they even had people run marathons in these shoes, so that should tell you how comfortable the shoes are.

Each style in the collection comes fully loaded, standard, and features modern comfort innovations, including: – VIBRAM® outsoles provide slip resistance and a durable grip – Ortholite footbed with EVA heel cup provides arch support – Padded collars and tongues help prevent blisters and lace bruising – DEWIX moisture wicking linings help keep foot dry and odor free – Strobel construction provides forefoot flexibility – Premium hand burnished leathers make for a soft feel and stylish look – ADIPRENE® by adidas provides shock absorption The DresSports Luxe collection boasts four styles: Apron Toe Oxford, Bike Toe Slip On, Cap Toe Oxford and Plaintoe Oxford, all of which can be found at Zappos.com and other premium retailers starting today in a variety of sizes and widths.

Rockport-Shoes

As you can see I tried out the Cap Toe Oxford DresSports Luxe and I was impressed from the moment they came out of the box. The shoes were sleek and professional and best of all comfortable. Too often with dress shoes, I find that my back starts hurting after standing for long periods due to a lack of overall foot support. This was not the cast with the DresSports Luxe shoes that I tried. My feet were comfortable and truly feeling great by the end of the day. They also take a beating and do not show too much either, which is great so you don’t have to polish them as much!!

I am very impressed thus far and I know you and your feet will be impressed if you try out these shoes for yourself!

 

Giveaway

How would you like to win a pair of these for yourself or for your family? All you need to do is fill out the below form to be entered.  The contest will run for one week and will end on June 30, 2015.

Flipping For Inside Out As it Opens This Friday!

InsideOut
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

I am a member of the Fandango Family Ambassador program so every now and again I am planning on trying to share with you some great movies and fun resources that I am looking forward to and think you may be looking forward to as well.

That being said, one of the movies that my entire household is completelyFandango-family excited to see is the new Disney Pixar film Inside Out which comes out Today. In this movie emotions run wild in the mind of a little girl who is uprooted from her peaceful life in the Midwest and forced to move to San Francisco in this Pixar adventure from director Pete Docter (Up, Monsters Inc.). Young Riley was perfectly content with her life when her father landed a new job in San Francisco, and the family moved across the country. Now, as Riley prepares to navigate a new city and attend a new school, her emotional headquarters becomes a hot bed of activity. As Joy (voice of Amy Poehler) attempts to keep Riley feeling happy and positive about the move, other emotions like Fear (voice of Bill Hader), Anger (voice of Lewis Black), Disgust (voice of Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith) make the transition a bit more complicated. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

 

Now one of the great things about Fandango is that their website has so much more that just movie tickets, but it is your go-to location to get tons of great video and other content to make you and your whole family happy. One of the fun video series’ that Fandango offers is a series called Reel Kids, where you get to hear from real kids about their thoughts on a specific movie, but also on life in general. Below is one of the episodes on this exact film.


Also, to get in on the film, this Infographic really allows you to see and experience the emotions of Inside Out!

Fandango-Inside-Out

 

I also gain great inspiration from many of the posts on the individual movie pages. For example, the craft idea about Making a jar of joyful memories was a great one and so easy to do too!

Jar-of-joyful-memories

 

All of this and more can be found at the main website for each film at Fandango, my go-to movie destination!

Enjoy the below trailer and I hope this gets you into the mood for this film!

JCPenney Lets My Kids Dress Me This Fathers Day #Ad

JCPenney
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Looking good is something that I love to do, but sometimes this is not always easy, whether it be in regards to money, time or the like. That being said, JCPenney recently asked me to have some fun with my kids and allow them to be able to make me look good through their #JCPStyleByMyKid Fathers Day program.

Now, letting them do this, opened up pandora’s box. You see, both my girls are very different in their styles and approaches. I have one daughter that is all about fitness and sports and thus she was thinking of making me be decked out in designer Nike apparel or something else like this, while my youngest is more about professional or semi-professional dress because she knows that I wear this more often.

So to be honest I had no clue what the girls would pick out for me, but I decided to keep my mouth shut and simply let them have fun. What was great was that not only did I have the giftcard that was sent to me, but JCPenney also had some great coupons and percent off coupons that could be used too to save even more money.

It had been a while since I had been to JCPenney and I came to find that they had a very large variety of items that ranged from fitness to dress clothes, accessories, shoes and more.

The girls had me try on shorts, pants, shorts, hats, a little bit of everything. The process was a ton of fun and the girls thought it was exciting to be able to have me in clothes that they picked out themselves. I think they just wish they had more money, but to be honest, even with the money that we did have ($50), with the coupons that we used, I ended up being able to get about 7 total items which was simply an amazing value altogether!

This was a very exciting program and one that, even if you do not have a giftcard, that I encourage you to try out with your own kids. You might be interested to see their impression of style of you through their selections as I was!

 

Giveaway

To help with this JCPenney is giving one of my readers a $50 Giftcard to JCPenney for yourself or for your family! All you need to do is fill out the below form to be entered.  The contest will run for one week and will end on June 23, 2015.

What’s On Your Shopswell List This Fathers Day?

Shopswell-logo
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

When it comes to fathers day or really any holiday people always ask me what I want and I never know what to say. I get accused of having too expensive of items on my lists (I like technology, what can I say!). The other challenge that I run into is that I don’t always have the best way to keep track of the things I really want or share those things with others. That has all changed with the a new service I recently tried out called Shopswell.

Shopswell gave me the ability to share my thoughts and ideas on things that I think are simply great, or things that I really want for myself. Seeing that I like to share this type of information with others anyways, it made a lot of sense to partner with Shopswell and become one of their Ambassadors.  You see, as an ambassador I get to make my own lists on Shopswell and share them out with all of you (not that you have to buy anything from me though!).

 

So What is Shopswell

Shopswell is the new home of smart shopping, with cost-saving technology, reviews and recommendations from a quality-savvy community, and authentic videos served up into one simple interface that empowers your best shopping experience ever. At Shopswell you can get the right product at the right price.

Making Lists!

As I mentioned earlier, Shopswell gives you the power to create lists of things that you love and share them with your friends and others. As you can see below I have made a few examples of things that I like to share with all of you! The sky is the limit here. Say you like Reading mysteries. Make a list of the must read mysteries of all times and share this out online so that others can enjoy and share too!

I am looking forward to keep using Shopswell as time goes on, keeping track of things and sharing great thoughts on fun stuff that others will love too!

Here are a few examples of the lists that I have made.

So join Shopswell today and begin creating lists of your own! Don’t forget to share them and tag me while you are at it, as I would love to see what you have created!

 

Giveaway

How would you like to win a $100 Amazon GC this for yourself or for your family? All you need to do is fill out the below form to be entered.  The contest will run for one week and will end on June 27, 2015.

Open Your Eyes To The #UnscriptedBeauty Around You!

#UnscriptedBeauty
“I participated in a Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for AVEENO. I received product samples as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

 

So many of the moments in a parent’s life are scripted. You get up at a similar time each day; you go through your morning routine; you go to work or stay with the kids; you come home; make dinner; get the kids ready for bed; relax; sleep – rinse and repeat each day, or so it seems. However, it is all of the time between these regular daily tasks, the moments that are unexpected that really lead to #UnscriptedBeauty within your parenting and overall life in general.

As a father there have been many moments of #UnscriptedBeauty throughout my life as a dad. Many of them though have come when my kids and I have just gotten on the floor, pulled out crayons, or a myriad of toys and just let loose. There were so many times when unscripted play turned into me being seen as horse to be ridden. In my daughters’ eyes I was always the author of the stories around our home for better or worse).  This sometimes was a large burden to bear, but that being said, I held it high and worked hard to try and create an environment where many can come to create their own stories worth sharing. Some of this creativity and flexibility manifested itself earlier this year encouraging my eldest, Diva-J to write down the mystery stories she was thinking about and sharing with others and then we worked together to begin the process to transcribe her words to the computer instead of being held only in her writing journal.

#UnscriptedBeauty

I can also remember tender words shared by my girls with me. Simple “I love you daddy” or other conversations at bedtime that were special and timeless. These moments were ones that you cannot simply create. These are unscripted moments that simply happen because of the love that you have and that you share with your kids.

So many of these moments led to such #UnscriptedBeauty within our home. In a recent study by AVEENO that I read, it shared that 3 quarters of U.S. women say that “unscripted” moments are more beautiful than those that are perfectly planned. While I am not a woman, I have to agree.  At the end of the day, it’s sharing candid, unscripted moments that build authentic relationships and while some of these moments may seem small in comparison to what some of you may have experienced, they are the moments that mean so much and are the ones that I remember most too.

I am loving that AVEENO is flipping-the-script by creating an #UnscriptedBeauty Movement, encouraging men and women to embrace the natural beauty of a life that doesn’t always go as planned.

Use #AVEENO #UnscriptedBeauty to share your moments.

Other moments of #UnscriptedBeauty can be seen on the Aveeno Facebook page.

 

You can get in on the fun too with the AVEENO #UnscriptedBeauty Photo Contest!

 

In order to be eligible to win, please include #Contest. If you do not wish to enter, though, #Contest can be left off.

To enter, simply upload a photo of your favorite Unscripted Beauty moment to Instagram and include #UnscriptedBeauty, #AVEENO, and #Contest

Getting Safe with Epson LabelWorks

Epson-LabelWorks-Safety-Label-Kit
 photo disclaimer_zpsaa1cb05b.jpg

Sometimes there are times when you need to keep track of items, make things better seen, or even making your own home safer. To do this people do many different things but Epson has created an amazing safety pack with their new Epson LabelWorks Safety Label Kit for the Epson LW-400 Label Printer that places safety at your fingertips.

This kit not only gives you the Epson LW-400 Label Printer but it also includes: Glow in the Dark and Black on Silver tape. This tape really stands out, especially in a dark room!

The Epson LW-400 Label Printer runs on six AAA batteries. I found that it worked best to use Lithium batteries as these tended to last the longest and allowed us to be able to use the printer for the longest period of time.

Epson-LabelWorks-Safety-Label-Kit

I used this for a few totes in our closet to make them stand out, especially in a black-out or emergency situation. That being said once set up, the tape set well and did not end up curling or not sticking (at least as of yet).

There were a few features on the Epson LW-400 Label Printer that I liked quite a bit. Outside of the interchangeable tapes that can be used, the printer itself has a wide array of font types (14) and font styles (10) from which to choose.

I found making labels to be pretty easy. The device itself is straight forward and the instructions were self-explanatory. In my last trip to OfficeMax I saw this on the shelf, but I also know that you can find it online at places such as Amazon.com.

So whether you are organizing your home, simply want to add some reflection to your helmets, bikes, strollers or running shoes, adding some nighttime reflection to your life through glow-in-the-dark tape or more this kit can help you with all of these needs!
