Meatless Friday’s: Mayo-less Tuna Salad

0

While visiting my sister-in-law in NY back in June, she introduced to me to one of the most delicious tuna salads I’ve ever had. AND it was mayo-less! I am all about the mayo-based salads, but this one really blew my mind. You can tell it was delicious because I haven’t been able to stop thinking about since my first bite and knew I had to try and re-create it. If you haven’t tried mayo-less tuna salad, please do yourself a favor and make this! It’s light, flavorful and the veggies add such a great crunchy texture. If I wasn’t…

Thumbs Up WineFinder App Review!

0

It’s no surprise that I am a huge wine lover. Reds, whites, sparkling’s – you name it, I’ve tried and probably enjoyed to the fullest. So when the guys at Thumbs Up Wine contacted me to review their iPhone app I jumped at the chance. Now picture this…You are standing in the wine aisle of your local grocery store, staring at this wall of wine: You are trying to figure out which wine to get for dinner tonight. Whether it’s for you or a gift, you end up standing there for a good 12 minutes reading every.single.label at least twice…

Swim Safety: TKR Class at Baby Otter Swim School

0

It is extremely scary, as a parent, to hear the statistics of child drownings. Down here in Florida, pools are as common as driveways in homes so having the necessary precautions to protect your child is a must. We’ve had my daughter in the pool since she was 3 months old, with mommy & me classes and just splashing around. Getting them used to the water at a young age is key but what I found is that teaching them survival is even more important over all. Back in the 80’s, my parents put me in a survival swim course…

Floral Fail

0

Shopping gives me a sense of calmness. If I’m having a crappy day, I like to hit one or three of my favorite stores, just to check out what’s new. Well, a few weeks, I just wanted to get out of the house to avoid the afternoon set on of laziness that usually hits me around 3-ish. I didn’t want to spend the afternoon on the couch, bad enough I feel like a giant barrel of lard. So I went snooping around LoveCulture trying to find some comfy leggings and blousy cute tops. I have noticed floral print is in,…

Ikea’s Hidden Jewel: Tindra Candles

0

We are pretty lucky to have an Ikea about 15 minutes away from our house. We could hop over there for a quick trip, or even just for a cheap lunch! It’s great. There are many hidden jewels in Ikea, but personally, the most important one is the candles. Most wouldn’t typically go directly to Ikea for just plain old candles, but that is high on my list. For $1.99, you can get deliciously smelling candles called Tindra in 6 different scents: Green Apple, Berry, Vanilla Ice Cream, Melon, Apples & Cinnamon, and Roses. I am obsessed with these candles…

Why Being Pregnant Sucks

0

It’s no secret on how I feel about being pregnant. I will tell anyone and everyone who asks that it just plain out sucks. The outcome is the absolute best thing in the world but the 9 1/2 months leading up to that moment is just….rough. I know there are many out there that just don’t see it the way I do, some might agree but just don’t want to admit it because they feel like they will be looked at as a terrible person, and there are a few that whole-heartedly agree. I don’t think feeling this way makes…
