Win It: Rockin' Refuel's Rockin' the Slopes Sweepstakes

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Rockin' Refuel. All opinions expressed are my own. 

Although we're heading to sunnier climate next week, we're still very much in snow mode here and one of the winter activities I'm excited to get the kids started on is skiing. Grayson was a bit too small to start skiing when we lived in Portsmouth, but this season is perfect timing to introduce him as we still have plenty of winter left here in Boston. While Mr. Lovebird and I love taking our little ones out into the snow, we're also antsy to get away just us two! That's why I was thrilled to try my luck at entering Rockin' Refuels amazing Rockin' the Slopes sweepstakes.

Love's in Need of Love

A day to celebrate love in this current climate is much needed! (And thank you Stevie for the blog post title inspiration.)

My Ode to Portsmouth, New Hampshire

It's hard to believe we're fast approaching the 6 month mark of when we left Portsmouth, but this past weekend when we were back in the area visiting friends in the beauty of the snow I had a bit of nostalgia for our 2 years experience there.

Win Big with Folgers' Jingle Contest!

This post was sponsored by Folgers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) guidelines concerning the use of endorsement and testimonials in advertising. I received complimentary products to facilitate my 

I'm a proud 80s baby and if there's one part of my childhood that's stuck with me it's my obsession with 80s TV - I even remember the commercials vividly. Who can forget the classic jingle, "The best part of wakin' up is Folgers in your cup?" As a kid seeing how snuggly and warm the coffee drinkers appeared made me want to cozy up with my own cup and while it wasn't until I had my own kids that I became an avid coffee drinker, it's no wonder that I now drink Folgers. Mr. Lovebird and I wake up to it every morning (we're huge fans of the Black Silk blend!) so when I heard about their jingle contest I was intrigued.

Resuming Winter with Kungs Premium Car Care Products

Disclosure: I received samples to facilitate this review; all opinions expressed are my own.

This week was an exciting one for the kids because we were blessed with snow! I know this doesn't seem worthy of excitement, but we're in the middle of winter and it's only snowed a handful of times here in Boston. The epic winter of 2014 is quite recent in my memory so any time I hear it's going to possibly snow I scramble to make sure everything is in order. This includes my car emergency kit, replenishing snacks and water in the car as well as my snow scraper/brush. My old one is cumbersome and super long, which is great for reach, but not very practical with all the stuff we keep in our car, so when Kungs reached out to me I was curious to see how their smaller scrapers and brushes would stack up.

Standing Together

I stood in solidarity with thousands in downtown Boston yesterday protesting the immigration ban which unfairly targets Muslims. It was a powerful experience and as one sign I saw mentioned, if we have to do this every weekend, so be it.

How Are You?

If there's one thing this week has made evident it's that this weekend especially *must* be a time for self-care. As I watched Grayson enjoy his two grapefruits today (he's obsessed!) I thought about how beautiful it was that he was so carefree and in the moment. I kinda felt jealous! While I know my professional and domestic responsibilities will only afford so much carefree-ness, I'm glad I purposely left my calendar pretty light lately so I can just enjoy being with my family.

That's what self-care means to me.
