Zarbee’s Naturals at Target

*Disclosure … I received product and compensation for my thoughts on Zarbee’s Naturals. In case you missed it, I recently shared my thoughts on Zarbee’s Naturals.  With busy schedules and sometimes finding it difficult to remember to take our vitamins, we can have an easier time of it with Zarbee’s Naturals.  These are individual packets of vitamin supplements that you add to hot or cold water {depending on the blend}. Let’s recap … “Dr. Zak Zarbock, a physician and father, could not find effective chemical-free products to keep the entire family healthy, so he went on to create his own”.  Zarbee’s Naturals are all with handpicked natural ingredients.  Sweetened with honey and other naturals.  You can find a Zarbee’s product for just about any age and anyone.  They have a great children’s line also.  Perfect for back to school time and keeping our immune systems right. For the entire month…  Read More…

Happy Healthy and Fit Giveaway

September is here and to be honest, I am really ready for Fall.   We have been in the midst of a crazy heat wave, most of California seems to be on fire and we are in a severe drought situation.  I am so looking forward to the next season and some much needed rain and weather.   Fall can mean that most of us tend to get pretty comfortable with our routine and sometimes slack off a bit.  We cozy up, start making comfort food meals, wear more clothing and well to be honest, we just pretty much fall off the fitness wagon.  Right?  Come on, be honest.  I am raising my hand high right now, because I find myself easily falling into that routine. I don’t want the Fall season to be my “forget about fitness” season.  I plan on getting myself out there and continuing with my running and…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date August

Good morning everyone and wow happy August.  We are really wrapping up summer quickly.  The kids head back to school in about two weeks and we have to start our back to school shopping soon.  However, we are still in play mode.  Welcome to our Ultimate Coffee Date, thanks for being here and chatting with myself and my co-hosts Deborah and Coco.  Please make sure to share your coffee related post and as always sharing and commenting is appreciated.  ♥ If we were having coffee, I would tell you to please check out my latest half marathon race re-cap.  I had the opportunity to run the Napa to Sonoma Wine Country Half Marathon two weeks ago and it was just amazing.  Click here for all the wonderful photos and details.  Destination Races really knows how to put on a race weekend.

Pet Adoption and The Volunteer Job

How is summer going everyone?  We are into the second week of July and with the 4th behind us and the Tahoe trip  {post to come} in the past, I am finding that the days are filled with swimming at the country club pool or grandma’s house.  If that is not enough to keep the kids busy, then I am at a loss.  I am actually looking forward to some quiet time and just doing nothing for a few days, but when it is too quiet the kids get restless.  Noah has football workouts and camp three days each week until season starts, so that helps.  Miss Faith is busy shopping on-line for anything because, well she is a girl {a 13 year old girl}, she gets bored and she apparently thinks that we have a money tree planted in the back yard. This is when I get creative.  Faith…  Read More…

The Ultimate Coffee Date July

Happy 4th of July everyone and welcome to the Ultimate Coffee Date.  I am going to keep this month’s link up and post pretty easy and quick as I know {assume} everyone is pretty busy doing some fun weekend, holiday activities.  If you are new to our Ultimate Coffee Date my co-hosts and I welcome you.  Make sure to take some time to visit Deborah and Coco also.  Sharing is caring so leaving comments and “coffee only related posts” are encouraged.  ♥ . If we were having coffee, I would tell you  that I just completed my second Zooma Half Marathon two weeks ago in Napa.  I enjoy that race route so much and had a pretty great run until having to stop TWICE for porta potty breaks.  My worst nightmare while running for sure. If we were having coffee, I would tell you  that we are back from a…  Read More…

Thank You Thank You Liebster Award

I am never one to miss a chance for some blogging kudos, after all don’t we ALL need a little pat on the back here and there?  Isn’t it nice to be noticed for our passions, efforts and at the same time make some new connections?  I am super humbled to be {once again} nominated for the Liebster Award via one of my top fave bloggers Miss Cheryl.   What is the Liebster you may be asking?  Simply this … The word Liebster is “beloved” in German.  The “award” is given to bloggers by their peers and along with it comes a handful of questions in which each recipient answers.  It is typically for new bloggers just starting out.  Basically it is a type of virtual blogging chain letter and you get to know one another a bit better.  You have the choice to accept and pay it forward OR decline…  Read More…

Embracing Summer Vacation

I know we have been out of school for about two weeks, but it took this long to feel that we are officially into summer.  The confirmation from the hotel came through my email to confirm our reservation,  I then realized we REALLY were into summer AND we are going away!  So happy to be looking forward to something new, because it is not always possible or easy to get away during summer break.  We are more a “stay cation” type of family. Summer vacation how I love you … Lazy days Kids sleeping in Backyard dinners Sleepovers Swimming Pool toys Beach trips Blowing bubbles Movies Bike rides Super early morning runs {don’t have to wait to take kids to school} Evening runs Bathing suits {permanent article of clothing} Beach towels Linen Sun dresses Tank tops Tanned skin Smell of sun screen No alarm clocks No schedule Spontaneity Dinners with…  Read More…
