Ringling Bros. Out Of This World

The Ringling Bros show was just here in Denver and what a show it was!!! Our boys always enjoy going to the circus, this one was pretty cool and fitting as they had skaters!!  Something we have never seen at the circus before!  With the boys playing hockey and being great skaters themselves, they were certainly entertained by the amazingly talented performers they saw at the show!  For the first time, the show featured thrill skaters – and acts will seamlessly transition from floor to air to ice, a feat never before done in Ringling Bros. And, of course, what would a circus be without clowns?  These ones were so funny!!!  The boys thoroughly enjoyed watching them!!! The new show entitled, … [Read more...]

Snacking on the Go – An Unexpected Flavorful Surprise

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Hershey Company for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine. Lately, snacking on the go has been at an all time high between sporting events, working, traveling, and my recent foot surgery.  I've upped my snacking slightly out of a bit of necessity and convenience. Why am I snacking so much? My 'always painting, always multi tasking, always creating, always driving' persona has had to take a step back slightly to heal from my foot surgery, so 'slowing down' is an unfamiliar and unexpected territory for myself, my family, and for those who know me.  Surprisingly, slowing down has been refreshing (aside from post-operative pain) to settle … [Read more...]

Peanut Butter Balls – YUMMY!

I make Peanut Butter Balls every year {would make it more, but my girlish figure would explode}.  Actually, I make them a couple times during the holidays now.  A certain little person loves to eat Peanut Butter Balls as much as I do apparently.  They just don't last in our house anymore. They are so delicious!! I got this Peanut Butter Ball recipe from one of the gals I worked with years ago when I was nursing in British Columbia.  And boy, I'm so glad I did!! These are wonderful treats to make for cookie exchanges or for teacher treats.  I mean, who doesn't like Peanut Butter Balls coated in fluffy coconut? (other than those who are allergic to PB of course) In saying that, this is … [Read more...]

Hex Performance Product Review

I had the pleasure of trying out the Hex Performance products to wash my boys' (and my husband's) stinky sweaty hockey gear. There’s a smell that can build up in gear and athletic apparel that doesn’t come out, no matter how many times it’s cleaned. The car, house, and environment become a smelly locker room and forces a quarantine of gear in cold garages (or anywhere to be free of that smell!). HEX scientists have created a new formula designed specifically for performance gear and apparel that truly cleans and removes unwanted odors and bacteria from performance gear and apparel. Hex Performance has a 2 part system to clean and to keep the active gear odor free for up to 30 days. I … [Read more...]
