My Week With The Acura ILX

You may recall that I posted about getting to test out an Acura ILX for a week. I had such a blast with the car, and I have to tell you that I didn't even go through a whole tank of gas in that week. Yes, you read correctly less than 1 tank of gas, and I even took a little road trip with my husband. That's the great part about having the Acura ILX Hybrid. In Los Angeles NOTHING is 5 … [Read more...]

Excited About My Week With The ILX

I grew up in a house of car lovers. That's an understatement to be honest. My older brother always had car posters on his walls, and we had every car magazine show up at our house regularly, so it rubbed off on me, and I love cars too. I love sitting in a new car. I love test driving new cars. I really find myself to be a little bit of a new car snob. So, imagine when I was asked to spend a week … [Read more...]

Bertolli Meal Soups Saves Our Dinner Blues

My husband and I often wait until after the kids are in bed to have our dinner. We tried 1 of the Bertolli Meal Soups, and now have a new favorite addition to our very limited choices in our meals for two category. I cannot tell you how many times R and I have gone in circles with the question "what do you want for dinner?"

Tulip Flower Fairy From Chasing Fireflies

When I was little picking my costume for Halloween was the great decision of every September/October. Who knew that it would be just as difficult to choose your child's costume too. I decided this year that "A" at 2.5 didn't really need a costume, then I saw the website Chasing Fireflies. Chasing Fireflies (@chasenfireflies) has costumes that are absolutely gorgeous, but better yet transcend to … [Read more...]
