My 15 year old, Kyle, has dreams of making it big. He wants to leave Ohio behind and head to Hollywood one day in hopes of making it as an actor or artist. Of course I would hate to have him so far away, but if that's where his dreams take him, we support him 100%.
So when we learned about the Circle K #PolarPopCup TV Commercial Sweepstakes, hosted on Instagram and the Circle K Great Lakes Facebook page, Kyle got very excited. He thought he was going to be "discovered". Well, sadly, I am pretty sure that the winner of the sweepstakes has to be over 18, which Kyle definitely is not.
I had to burst his fame bubble, but to ease the blow a bit, I did decide to treat him to his favorite summer beverage, the Polar Pop Cup, available at Circle K for well under a buck. Gotta love a bargain, right?

Lately, I have been in a bit of a funk. I don't know if it's just being under loads of stress or if it's my anxiety being in constant overdrive. Maybe it's a combination of both. All I know, is I am sick of feeling this way and am willing to try just about anything to feel "normal" again.
One thing that a lot of folks have recommended for stress relief is being more physically active. Apparently, this can do wonders for not only the body, but for mood, too! And hey, I have to be honest. I have about 30lbs I would love to lose. So if working out could help with that, too, then maybe this fitness thing is worth a shot.
I am admittedly not the most organized person, so keeping track of important things like how many calories I burn and consume, how much water I am drinking, how much sleep I am getting, etc. would be a nightmare for me. It just wouldn't happen. My brain simply doesn't work that way, unfortunately.
That's why I was thrilled to learn about the new Jawbone fitness trackers, now available at Best Buy. Jawbone is introducing two new devices, the UP2™ and UP3™ The sleek, stylish, thin devices take the dirty work out of tracking things like fitness, sleep, and activity level. That's right. This handy little wearable device makes maintaining a healthy lifestyle simple and idiot proof.

In my small town in NE Ohio, we don't really have many grocery delivery services. I have always been incredibly jealous of my big city pals that can have their groceries delivered with the click of a button, even fresh produce, dairy, and meats. Even Amazon simply can't provide the fresh stuff, so up until now, I have had to drag myself out of the house to shop, usually with 2 crazy preschoolers in tow. Sometimes we have to head out in -50° temperatures, since Ohio winters have been ridiculously brutal the past few years. Venturing out in those frigid temps?. Not fun. Not fun at all.
Grocery delivery has been basically unheard of here. And if you prefer organic grocery delivery? Forget about it! The closest you'll come is heading to local farmer's markets, and sometimes the odd hours of operation just don't mesh with our schedules. This makes me sad, since I love nothing more than fresh fruits and veggies, especially this time of year.
Recently, I learned about a company that pairs my laziness and lack of wanting to shop with my love for super-fresh, organic produce. Door to Door Organics has recently launched here in the great state of Ohio. I can finally have groceries delivered right to my door! And they're organic, too! Score!
Door to Door Organics is famous for their customizable subscription produce boxes. In these produce boxes, you will receive amazingly fresh, organic fruits and veggies. You can opt for the preselected boxes, or substitute items if there's something your family doesn't particularly care for. Like onions. We skipped the onions.
With summer finally here, it is time for us to spend more time outdoors with our favorite canine family members. While they obviously love walks and a good run, why not ad some fun new toys to the mix, like the Bomber by Zeus. Made from 4 mm natural rubber, it’s designed to support the constant stress of highly active dogs, allowing dogs to have fun chasing after this fun ball with owners, or cooling off in the summer heat in the pool as they swim after this ball. Also, dogs can enjoy some cooling off time in the shade with a fun Tasty Bones dental or chew toy, giving them a chance to chew on something safe and tasty! With fun toys like these, dogs can have hours of fun with humans or other canine companions!
Of course, time outdoors requires lots of fun snacks and training treats. What better way to make off leash training fun and tasty than with Zoe Tender Bites, Zoe Tender Chunks, or Hagen Heritage Treats. These treats are soft, chewy, and highly palatable, making them the perfect reward during training. Best of all, they are made in Canada using only North American ingredients, making them the perfect natural and grain free choice for dogs. These healthy treats also do not contain corn, wheat, soy, or artificial flavors. These treats are also available for giving medication, making giving your monthly heartworm medicine even easier. Who knew treat time could be so much fun?
Want to make this the best summer possible for your pet? We are excited to be working with some amazing Hagen pet brands on this fun warm weather themed giveaway. 2 very lucky winners will win a prize pack valued at up to $80 each (depending on size of dog). Some of the prizes include a Zeus Bomber, Zoe Treats, new Zoe Tender Chunks Treats, Hagen Heritage Treats, and Tasty Bones (dental and chew toys).

Unless you've been living under a rock somewhere, you are probably well aware of how AWESOME Disney•Pixar’s new film, "Inside Out" is. This much anticipated animated film is creating a ton of buzz, especially among parents of small children. You see, little kids aren't always the best at identifying and expressing their emotions. Sometimes, this leads to frustration or even full-blown meltdowns. Thanks to "Inside Out", kids are learning about the myriad of human emotions in a fun, adventure-packed way.
Heralded as Disney•Pixar’s best movie since the original Toy Story, Inside Out is the story of the voices in your head. Like all of us, Riley is guided by her emotions – Joy (Amy Poehler), Fear (Bill Hader), Anger (Lewis Black), Disgust (Mindy Kaling) and Sadness (Phyllis Smith). The emotions live in what’s known as the “Headquarters", the control center inside Riley's mind, where they help advise her through everyday life. As Riley and her emotions struggle to adjust to a new life in San Francisco, turmoil ensues in Headquarters. Although Joy, Riley’s main and most important emotion, tries to keep things positive, the emotions conflict on how best to navigate a new city, house and school.
TOMY Toys is bringing the rich characters and colorful personalities of Inside Out to life in the real world with its line of magical toys including Riley’s five emotions: Joy, Sadness, Anger, Fear and Disgust. The toys (available NOW) are character-driven, each showcasing the diverse personalities and distinct qualities of the characters in the animated film.

Now that summer is finally here, a lot of folks are heading outdoors to enjoy some sun and fun. We're no exception. We actually spend the bulk of our free time enjoying the beautiful summer weather here in Northeast Ohio.
Of course there are days when the kids are "bored" and don't want to do the same old thing. I suppose I can't really blame them, though. While hanging out in the yard is fun, there's a whole world to explore and enjoy.
I would love to share a list of 5 things that your family can do this summer to enjoy the outdoors. These photos are things that we enjoy doing here in the Cleveland area. Be sure to google similar things and see what's available in your area! Remember, it's very important to stay hydrated during your outdoor adventures, so be sure to pack plenty of water!

See this adorable little girl? Her name is Carly, and she lives right here in my home state of Ohio.
Carly leads the life of a typical little girl. She loves purses, chocolate and lip gloss and spends her time coloring, dancing and singing. But that’s where Carly’s “average” leanings end. She is one of just 18 children in the United States with progeria, an extremely rare genetic disorder that causes dysmorphic features, accelerated aging, small stature, and a shorter life expectancy. No matter her size, Carly’s personality is anything but “small” and keeping up with this pint-sized princess is not for the faint of heart. Her mom knows when Carly doesn’t feel well or is tired; it’s the only time she’s sitting still.
From arming the Kudzia family with resources to making the arduous testing and treatment protocol as easy as possible for Carly, CMN Hospitals support Carly as the cure for progeria becomes a real possibility. Until then, Carly will continue to inspire and touch the lives of everyone she meets.
