Are you a fan of game day entertaining? Me too! I love entertaining in general. It’s exhausting and I almost always try to talk myself out of it at first because cleaning, cooking, entertaining, it’s a lot adds up quickly, and before you know it, I’m over it before it even began. Ha. You too? Tell me I’m not alone in this?! I love entertaining though. I love having people over. It’s just so fun and it’s what we’ve done for years now, that is seems weird when we don’t have people over for the holidays or sporting events or whatever we’d normally have em over for. Moving is weird and kind of a pain. Making friends as an adult is challenging, but man making those friends & getting to invite them over… worth it.
This game day though, I decided to simplify things a bit. I headed to Sam’s Club (we’re a family of 5…bulk shopping is our thing) and grabbed a few Red Baron Minis and Red Baron Deep Dish Singles. Who doesn’t love pizza?! Pizza and game day?! That’s a no brainer.
So, Sam’s club pizzas, drinks, chips, and a few other things and we were set to watch the game. I kept it simple, wanted the main to focus to be the Red Baron pizzas. Plus, Sam’s club shopping, saving in bulk – that’s a total win in itself. Overall, we all had a really great time. Good food, good company, good ending to a game day.
What about you? Do you have a go-to tip to share with me for game day entertaining? What’s your go to dish to serve? I love being the hostess with the mostest, but I also love simple sanity saving tips and Red Baron was my sanity saver this game day.
And the best part?! Since I bought them in bulk, I have more in the freezer just waiting to be baked.

So, I’m 28 days in. Here’s my before photo & the products I’ve been using.
I’ve been using Olay Eyes Deep Hydrating Eye Gel & Olay Total Effects Moisturizer with SPF 15.

The Hydrating Eye Gel benefits include: hydrating and plumping of tired eyes, instantly hydrates for a wide-awake look, fast-absorbing, long-lasting, cooling formula helps fight signs of fatigue and dehydration.
Two weeks into this challenge I shared this photo update. I could already see some changes from the before photo.
Now that we’re 28 days in, let me chat a bit about how I’m feeling about it. GREAT! That’s how! This challenge has been SO fun & really, pretty easy. I mean, two products and done. It’s saved me a ton of time I’m LOVING the eye gel. I love the Moisturizer as well. My pores look smaller. I look less tired and worn out. Well, see for youself… here’s my after photo.
I can see a difference. My skin looks better than ever. My eyes look less puffy and brighter. My skintone overall looks more evened out. My face just feels more moisturized.

The other day David and I dropped the kids off at school and headed up to Denver to do some shopping. YAY! If you remember, I’ve lost a decent amount of weight over the last year-ish so new clothes definitely can’t hurt at this point. Have you heard of Evereve yet? Such a cute little shop!
Evereve is a retail brand founded by moms for moms. We all know the shopping struggles, with kids especially…phew. Evereve has that taken care of for you! The moms running the Evereve we went to were so stinkin’ cute and friendly.
Evereve is on a mission to inspire you to embrace your beauty and power, and to show that dressing like a mom is a really great thing.
Poor David had NO idea what to do with himself while we were there though, because when he shops with me, his main job is to hold my items, but every single time he’d have one, she’d come grab it from him to put into my dressing room. MY dressing room. She’d set it up for me, even put various sizes in there for me just in case because she knew some things ran up or ran small. They wrote my name on there, gave me feedback on every outfit I walked out in, it was just such an amazing shopping experience. It was just so much fun! I felt like such a VIP that day, and I WAS!
Keep scrolling to see which I took home! The grey sweater? The jeans? Those camo joggers?! So many great options! Sharing more on my Instagram as well.
Evereve is also offering one of you the chance to win a $500 shopping spree! Isn’t that awesome?! Follow them on Facebook. Head here for more details. Side note, I greatly regret not getting that long grey sweater. Hopefully when Evereve opens up here in Colorado Springs next month they’ll have it and I can grab it because *heart eyes*.
Thank you Bush’s beans for sponsoring today’s post. As usual, all opinions and thoughts are my own. 🙂
It was a cold and gloomy afternoon…. school pick up had taken longer than normal, I was already a bit on edge, grumpy and just worn out… these are the days that the idea of making dinner just drains me.
I’m usually pretty good about meal-planning and being prepared, but that’s just gone out the window lately as our life schedule changes up. I keep a few things on hand for days like that, for easy, fool-proof meals that I know won’t break the bank, my family will eat and enjoy, and it’ll feed all of us. Bush’s beans is a staple in this house. They’re just so handy for all the things.
On this particular night, I was thankful to find some Bush’s Chili beans as well as some Bush’s kidney beans. This particular night was perfect for Chili and cornbread. Chili is just such a quick and easy thing to make. Keeping Bush’s beans on hand is just a smart choice for all seasons. Do you remember the simple bean salad I made over the summer? Once again, because I had Bush’s beans on hand. STAPLE ITEM!!
If you haven’t tried Bush’s Chili beans yet, I highly recommend you grab some next time you’re at Walmart. Also, you should totally try some sausage in your chili. We usually use ground turkey and some ground sausage mixed together. I suggest trying that as well.
Are you a breakfast eater? I want to be, I love breakfast foods, it just usually doesn’t work out for me that I eat breakfast in the middle of downing coffee and getting kids out the door. Life, right?! Now weekends though, that is a whole different story… I love a big ole breakfast but I also have the time to wake up and enjoy some coffee before making it. Weekdays though… those are the days that I’m all about some grab n go products. Which leads me to today’s post topic…
I grabbed some from Walmart the other day (yay Ibotta rebates!) and was so excited about them. I definitely prefer the Vanilla flavor over the Mixed Berry but I love that there are so many different flavor options to choose from.
The portability of these drinks makes it so great to grab and drink on my way to school drop off or to the grocery store. (Seriously, don’t grocery shop while hungry, your bank account will be sad and you’ll be shocked by all the food that jumped into your cart. haha)
Let me tell you a few things that you probably did not know about these… Dannon® Oikos® Yogurt Drinks contain 10g of high-quality dairy protein Dairy protein contains all 9 essential amino acids that your body needs but can’t make on its own – this makes it a “complete” protein. Not only do Dannon® Oikos® Yogurt Drinks have an excellent source of high quality dairy protein, but is also an excellent source calcium and vitamin D.
Dannon® Light & Fit® Nonfat Yogurt Drink 4 pack is a smart choice for balanced nutrition on the go. It is so easy to shake up your routine with your favorite fruit flavors in a smooth 7 fl. oz. nonfat yogurt drink with 9 grams of protein, 90 calories, 0 added sugar, and 0% fat.
Basically, it’s a delicious way to eat on the go! As a lady that spends a good amount of her day on the go, I for one am very thankful for Dannon drinks. What about you? Which are you gonna try?
