Meal Planning...Why didnt't I do this before?!?!?

For the longest time, my husband has been suggesting that I try meal planning, creating a calendar for meals.  I have been fighting him for years.  I finally decided to give it a try...It is actually a good idea.  Less stressful on work days and it helps with meal preps, etc.

I try to do my grocery list for the week on Thursdays, so I plan my meals for the week then.  Then I create a printout to print on the fridge.  (I Wish i could remember where I found this template...one day I want to be that talented.)

That's it...Simple, quick, and super helpful.  Try it...you'll be happy you did.

Influenster Sugar N Spice VoxBox



So, it's been a while since I've posted something.  Funny how life kinda gets in the way!

So I got my Influenster Sugar N Spice VoxBox a few weeks ago.  It was so exciting to get home and see the package.  I couldn't wait to open it.  This is what was included in the package.

  • Nectresse sweetener by Splenda
  • Belvita cinnamon flavored breakfast biscuits
  • Vaseline Spray and Go lotion
  • Dickinson's witch hazel face wipes
  • Colgate Optic White Toothpaste 
  • Colgate Optic White Toothbrush
  • Colgate Optic White Mouthwash
 I am enjoying trying out the new products.  The Belvita crackers went well with my morning coffee the next day.  They were super tasty and filling.

I immediately set out to try the Colgate Optic White toothpaste.  I have been dying to try it (sad I know).  At first it was a little overpowering (strong), but the second day got better.  I like it.  Makes my mouth feel nice.  The toothbrush, well, its a toothbrush, it does what toothbrushes do, they clean teeth. 

I haven't tried the mouthwash yet, because in my household there is sort of an unwritten rule:  you don't open a product until the one you are using is used up, and we had just gotten a bottle of mouthwash.

The Dicksinson's towlette was a nice change.  it was super easy to use and portable.  The smell was nice, reminded me of something my mother used to use when I was a kid.

I tried the Vaseline spray and go, and I have to admit, it was weird and cool all at once.  It was easy to use and spread.  The smell was nice.  I wish I could do what the girl in the commercial does, but that requires talent I guess.

Products were sent to me for free by Influenster (On behalf of the respective companies) for me to try and review. These are my personal, honest opinions.
