Hey you! Welcome and Happy Friday!! I’m thrilled to be in Atlanta at the Haven Conference with some of my favorite bloggers ever!! I will be sure to update you on all the details when I get back!
Something I’m very fortunate for is, I’ve never been a pop drinker. I may have it on occasion, but it’s certainly not a habit for me! I will tell what is a habit, drinking water! Besides my morning cup-of-joe, water is my go to drink throughout the day! If you aren’t much of a water drinker, I’m excited to share the Brita water bottle with built in filter that makes drinking water anywhere a breeze! I also have a tasty little treat for you too 😉
As a Mom constantly on the go, it’s so important for me to stay hydrated and influence my kids to drink more water! Between baseball practice and games three times a week for one, and soccer practice and games for the other, having something to give me a little boost when I’m needing it most is crucial!! It may sound crazy to some, but finding a good water bottle isn’t an easy thing! I headed to Walmart (near the hardware section) and grabbed the Brita hard-sided water filter bottle. So far, it’s been the best water bottle I’ve purchased! It holds 23.7 ounces and is BPA free, plus it includes a filter that lasts for approx. 300 uses! This makes filling up no matter where we are simple! Now, here’s a simple idea for you to add some fun to your water!
Using your favorite fruits and/or herbs, simply gather, cut and prepare them to add to an ice cube tray and freeze into ice cubes. I chose lemon, lime and fresh mint. Once frozen, simply add one of each ice cube to your water and hit the road! It’s really that simple! The taste lasts, refreshes and hydrates you all at the same time! And a hidden benefit, my kids love it too!! I’m certainly not complaining when they’re asking for a water bottle of their own!
As a “sports Mom” my game day essentials are: sunglasses, sunscreen, a blanket for the chilly mornings or cool nights, something to keep the other kid occupied and of course, my Brita water bottle! What are your game day essentials? Are you ready to give the Brita water bottle a try? There are more than six seriously adorable styles to choose from, so head to your local Walmart and check them out!
Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great Summer!!

Well hello there! Boy, do I have a treat for you today!! If you’re anything like us you’re busy, busy in the Summer going to cookouts and looking for something yummy you can make! Today I’m sharing a very simple, light and delicious summer-time fruit salsa with homemade cinnamon sugar chips! Oh-my-yum!
I first made this recipe a few years ago for the first time, but not since. We were having a Memorial Day cookout with family and friends, so I decided to make it again! It’s a great alternative to fattening desserts, plus it’s light and fresh!
You’re going to need:
2 apples, peeled and diced
2 kiwis, peeled and diced
2 nectarines, diced
8 strawberries, diced
handful of blueberries, cut into fourths
2 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar
3 tablespoons fruit preserves (I used natural strawberry)
12 10″ flour tortillas
4 tablespoons melted better
cinnamon sugar mixture
It’s really quite simple, begin preparing your fruits and putting them into a glass bowl. Dice everything pretty small since you’re going for a salsa consistency! Next mix in your white and brown sugar and preserves. Let chill for at least 30 minutes before serving (I made mine the day before, so it sit over night).
For your homemade tortilla chips, grab a tortilla and brush with melted butter, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, flip over and repeat on the other side. Using a pizza cutter, slice the tortillas to your desired chip size. Do this for the remaining tortillas. Cook for 8 minutes, until lightly brown and slightly crispy. Let cool completely before serving.
Another thing I love about this recipe is it’s super fun and easy for the kids to help make! My little one had a lot of fun helping Mommy in the kitchen, and she did a great job brushing on the butter and sprinkling the cinnamon sugar! Not to mention, she loved telling everyone that she made it all by herself 😉
Don’t be surprised if you are asked numerous times for the recipe 😉 We will certainly be making this one again! I hope you enjoy!

If you’re anything like me, you have a sweet tooth! It’s just one of those things that sometimes, you have to give in to 😉 As we all know, sweets can be fattening and unhealthy. As I have been watching what I eat, I was really craving puppy chow. I knew how fattening and unhealthy that was… So I came up with a much healthier alternative. And quite honestly, I think it tastes better than the original.
1 package of four cheese tortellini
1 container of chicken broth
spinach (desired amount)
1 package of mushrooms
green onionsI love this meal because it’s a one pot wonder! Simply add everything to your pot and add about 1 cup of water. Cook on a low-medium heat with lid. Continue to add small amounts of water to maintain consistency. Turn heat to low and allow to cook at least 30 minutes. By this time, your veggies will be soft and full of flavor! Serve with fresh baguette and a crisp white wine, yum! Sprinkle with fresh Parmesan cheese if desired.
