Keep Your Girls Body Strong and Your Taste Buds Happy with Viactiv® Calcium Chews #ViactivYoursandHers

It is never too early to start worrying about bone health. Many moms are surprised to learn that 86% of teenage girls have calcium-deficient diets (overall, 68% percent of adult women are calcium deficient). Why is this such a frightening statistic? For teen girls, this deficiency comes at a crucial time for bone health, since 95% of bone building occurs by the time she's 20! Calcium is the main mineral that strengthens bones and this is most important during adolescence when teens are going through their growth spurt. If you have a teenage at home like a do, you need to make sure they are getting a good nutrition.

I recently bought the new Viactiv® calcium chocolate chews to supplement my calcium intake and I was pleasantly surprised that not only they taste like a real chocolate but they are fortified with vitamin D. Vitamin D helps promote the absorption of calcium, so if you have a deficiency of vitamin D your bones may not be able to absorb the adequate amount of calcium they need to them keep them healthy.

I have been diagnosed with a severe deficiency of vitamin D and I need to take supplements for the rest of my life (true story). I always worry my daughter could experience the same problem so I bought the Viactiv® calcium caramel chews to supplement her nutrition. She is very picky when it comes to supplements so I wasn't sure if she would like it or not. But guess what? She loves them. Her first reaction was "I feel like I'm cheating. This feels like I'm eating a real caramel. Yum!"

Don't Go Noseblind! Breathe Happy With Febreze {Review + Giveaway}

*This review and giveaway was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Febreze. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.*

When you have pets at home like us, it is very common to become noseblind, to the lingering odor they leave behind. We have two dogs, two cats, and we often foster rescues until they are ready to be adopted. The problem of becoming noseblind, is that you always have the doubt in the back of your mind that your house smells funny. 

I don't know about you but I panic when I know someone is coming over to visit. I clean the house from top to bottom, but I'm never fully satisfied because I always worry about odor infestation, in other words, what your guests overwhelmingly smell as soon as they walk in the door. Let's be real, we all know that person that can track scents like bloodhound. They can follow the scent trail and no matter how well you clean they can always find it.

Our friends at Febreze invited us to …

My Stress-Free Thanksgiving Dinner - Why Honeybaked Ham is My New Best Friend

Don't sweat the small stuff! Have a Happy Thanksgiving with Honeybaked Ham!
No matter how much I plan a sensible Thanksgiving dinner, I always over-plan, over-work, and over-spend. This year I'll try a different approach. Cook as little as possible and leave the rest to Honeybaked ham. I'm willing to cook a 30 minute side dish (just one) and bake a simple dessert (apple crème brûlée bread pudding) but besides those two things (that can easily be made the day ahead) my kitchen will not be open during the holidays.
This year I choose to be happy and stress free for Thanksgiving. I refuse to slave all day in the kitchen. As much as I enjoy cooking there are days I wish I have a personal chef at home that could cook for me. Since I don't see this remotely happening, the best thing I could do is order the Honeybaked Ham Whole Turkey Feast. Perfect for the Holidays and special celebrations, this gourmet feast includes a whole roasted turkey, old-fashioned cornbread dressing, …
