Cake Batter 'Nice' Cream and 7 Other Cool Nutrisystem #NSNation Treats #ad

Ice cream, ice cream, we all scream for ice cream.
Temps have been hovering in the upper 90s and the weatherman has been telling us to be happy because we haven't "officially" hit 100 yet.  
Well, my car says different.  Got in my yesterday and saw this...
100 degrees.
Posted a pic on Facebook and my nephew, who's currently serving in Baghdad, shared a pic on Facebook of temps where he's stationed.
                        120 degrees!!!
Crazy huh?
  When it's this hot there's no better way to cool down than with bowl of ice cream. 
Now that I'm losing weight I want to keep the momentum and so I am reading labels when shopping at the grocery store and ice cream, the REAL creamy, buttery smooth ice cream I love is soooooooo... off limits.
  This is the first time in a long time that I have weighed in the '50s and I am on track to be in the 40s by the end of July. 
  Let's be honest who hasn't bought a pint of ice cream with the intention of eating one serving and ended up devouring the entire pint?  *raises hand

RAIN RAIN GO AWAY! GIVEAWAY HOP

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.

OH! The Places You'll Go! Giveaway Hop + 7 Out of the Box Uses for Erasers

Another Summer has come and gone and it's time to head Back to School!  

If you're anything like me you took advantage of all those Back to School deals and stocked up on all those back to school deals and now have a surplus of school supplies which will probably end up in a junk drawer or put away someplace where you will never find it when you need it.

Take for instance those pink erasers.  I buy a pack every year and every year without fail my family gives me that look when they see that pack of lone erasers in the back to school shopping cart.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use erasers around the house

Erase away scuffs on your kitchen floor with an eraser.  

Easily remove your kid's pop-up crayon masterpiece from the walls with an eraser. 

Remove stains from suede boots by gently brushing the eraser across the stain until it's gone.

Keep those tickling ivory piano keys nice and clean by erasing stains with one quick swipe.

Stubborn zippers loosen quickly by rubbing…
