The Wright Cup of Coffee Giveaway

As a new business entrepreneur, Charles Nick has set the coffee business in the right direction. What a great way to enjoy freshly ground coffee. The Wright Cup has an intuitive vision in coffee sampling. You place your order, choose your city, and in a few days you have a nicely packaged variety of coffee choices.

My box arrived and I could hardly wait to open it and see what wonderful flavors I was going to enjoy.

Inside are all of these cute packages of coffee greeting you. Aren't they awesome looking? I had to take them out and line them up in a pretty row. I could smell the awesomeness (such a word??) in each bag, waiting to be freshly ground to my liking.

While you are tasting your new coffee, there is a card included that you can use to rate the coffee. This way you can keep track of the coffee that you really love! After you finish your box, stop by to let them know your thoughts on the coffee (site is almost ready for feedback). Hopefully they will be enthusiastic and happy thoughts. How can you go wrong with coffee?

I am loving this gift so much that I want to share a box with you. Stop by the Wright Cup and choose which box you would like to try. Come back here and leave a comment on which one interests you. Please make sure you leave an email address so that I have a way to contact you. I will have a drawing on February 10th to choose a winner.

UPDATE! A winner has been chosen - Jenny Sheldberg is the winner. I don't have the fancy Rafflecopter, but I used a random "name" picker. Congrats to Jenny!

Tastykake Minis!

I am so loving these cute little Tastykake mini cupcakes. They are three little cupcakes, just the perfect size for my kids. That way you can enjoy the creamy middle in all of them!

Thanks to Influenster, I received a box of the new Tastykake Minis to try. I received a box of the Swirly Cupkakes. They are made with Hershey's Cocoa which adds a nice chocolate taste to the cupcake.

They come packaged in three little cupcakes per packet. Perfect size for snacking and sharing.

I shared a pack with my son. As you can see he was really excited to try these too. Let's just say I got one out of the three.

There is just enough icing and cream filling to give you a taste of each in every bite. The bigger cupcakes leave me wanting because you only get a little pocket of the cream filling in the middle. These are bite size, so each bite is filled with yumminess!

You can check out TastyKake on Facebook and Instagram to see all of the excitement!

I received a package of Tastykakes to try for free. All opinions are solely mine.

Bear in the "Snuggle" Den

Summer break is almost over and it will be back to work and school. I can't believe how fast it went this year. I took a few road trips here and there, and found some neat places to hang out for a couple of days and relax.

Thanks to Snuggle, I received a Snuggle Bear to enjoy the trips with me! How fun is that! He shared in bike rides and basketball, as well as, a road trip to Jacksonville, Florida!
He truly enjoyed the sunset as much as I did. We ran into a cute little manatee while we were there too. He hid under the boat and made it difficult for us to leave.

The manatee came up for air and caught us all off guard. We even glimpsed his giant fin as he snuck under the boat again.

Before we headed to our destination we stopped at the Russell Stover outlet. Tons of chocolate! I love their discount section in the back. You can buy a bag of "boo boo" chocolates for a really good price. My tummy doesn't know the difference for sure. It still tastes really good.

I know I have had a good summer and I hope that Snuggle Bear did too. My kids laughed at me in the beginning when I started taking photos, but they soon found places to take Snuggle's picture and were reminding me to take them when I could.

The Beautiful Mountains of Tennessee

We finally had a family vacation. I say finally because we never have had one that didn't involve leaving the state for either a funeral or wedding. We chose to go to the beautiful mountains of Tennessee. My husband was there for the first time at the same age that the boys are, which made it all that much more exciting. We had a wonderful time in Gatlinburg and in the Smoky Mountains.
There is just nothing more beautiful that nature itself. We climbed to the top of the mountain to look out at the Clingman's Dome Tower. We about died going up the half mile trail. It was a serious hike. We found out later that it is the highest point, more than 6,000 feet up. No wonder we couldn't catch our breath! The climb was worth it though. To see the mountains and trees was awesome.

But like all things great and awesome, vacation had to come to an end. I know we created lots of memories for the boys that day.

Kiss Everlasting French Manicure

Thanks to Influenster I got try out the new Kiss Everlasting French Manicure kit. I don't usually do my nails because I am always cleaning or doing things that cause my nails to break or the polish to come off. I was excited to try these though, especially when I saw they were supposed to be chip resistant!

The 4th of July holiday is close so I decided to step up the nails. What more fun that customizing them to the holiday? It was really easy to do my own personalization because I didn't have them on. Have you ever tried to paint your own nails and makes designs? Holy cow! My left hand just doesn't do what I am telling it to.
I was happy with how the nails turned out. With an easy start of having the french manicure part on the nail, adding to it was awesome.

I would save these for a special occasion or date night though. I didn't get them to stay on longer than three days. I told you I use my hands a lot. For a quick pretty to your nails, these are perfect and reasonably priced.

First Aid Shot Therapy Review

Well, summer is here and so the yard work begins. When it isn't a million degrees (well, it feels that way here in Florida) I like to get some of the yard work done in the evening. Unfortunately, summer also brings the joy of bugs. Bugs here are not tiny in any sense. It seems everything stings too. Fire ants, wasps, bees, etc.

Thanks to our overgrowth of critters and bugs here, I had a nasty run in with a wasp. Yup, trimming the hedges, minding my own business. He flew out and got me good. Twice on the arm and once on the leg. Of course I ran screaming like a little girl to get away, but that sucker chased me around the yard.

A week ago I received one of my Vox Boxes from Influenster. They sent me First Aid Shot Therapy to try. It is a shot of pain relief in liquid form. After the wasp got me, I thought I would give the First Aid Shot Therapy a try. It helped ease some of the pain from the stings. It seemed to work faster than taking a tablet, which was great considering the pain I was in. I guess I will be hunting the wasp down and paying him back with a nice spray of wasp killer. Can't chance my kids getting stung too.
Thanks Influenster for my free sample! #FASTrelief  #contest
