This post is sponsored by Target. All thoughts and opinions are my own.Little known (or maybe widely known) secret...Target is my happy place.

During the summertime especially, I love the convenience of running into Target...sometimes it's fun to spruce things up for a friend's visit. Having a girlfriend over? Make the evening extra special by setting up a special area to relax in? Target makes it SUPER simple with their new outdoor dinnerware dining sets and tableware...check out … [Read more...]

Family Pizza Night with Tony’s Pizza

Tony's Pizza Night with The Cards We Drew

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and TONY’S® Pizza, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #BigPizzeriaTaste time seems to FLY by...I can't believe we're half way through May already and before we know it June will arrive. Weekends are busy filled with sports games, laundry, errands, and more and sometimes the cookout that we had planned for the weekend just doesn't happen. Sure, it's AWESOME to plan a big cookout and have lots of delicious food, but it's not always attainable. This weekend especially, I wanted to get outside once the weather … [Read more...]

“Sí What’s Next” with Ribera and Rueda Wines

Ribera Del Duero y Rueda Wine

Now that summer is finally {almost} can find me and my family sitting out on the back deck, legs up, drink in hand, relaxing or pushing the kids on the swing. Some nights we start a fire in our fire pit, roast hot dogs, make s'mores...but being outside and being with family is pinnacle. Last Friday night we had dinner with friends, opened up a bottle of wine, and relaxed on our back deck chatting for hours while our kids played. THAT, my friends, is my favorite part about summer. I don't need to go out to fancy restaurants or get dressed to the nines for dinner, give me a bottle of wine, my back deck, and good company and I'm set!! … [Read more...]
