Hello Fresh Review

 You mean this tired worn out Mom does not have to go Grocery Shopping this week??? Those are the words I seriously uttered when a knock at my door produced the Hello Fresh Box pictured above. The last few weeks have been a wind tunnel at home. My family has been in and out of doctor appointments, sent for Blood panels, X-Rays all to try and find out what has been making my son so sick. We truly take health for granted once something is wrong and they can't fix it immediately. My house chores have suffered, heck my everything has! That's life as an adult right? Just when you think things have settled down something else lands you for a complete 180 twist. Let's just say when this box came to my door I was not only thankful I was down right Grateful! I had see those ads on Facebook for the grocery boxes and thought who could be so lazy? Well, unannounced to me this box of goodies was a Life send and now I have completely chanced my ever loving closed mind-ed-ness since! 
I was given a free box to try out and formulate my review. I was not compensated and all opinions express are my own.
With Hello Fresh you select three meals for a given week and they send you neatly packaged ingredients. I selected the family portions and WOW was I surprised at what we got.
 First up I selected a recipe that was similar to our tastes but different. Meet the Melty Monterey burger pictured above!  I wanted to try new things disguised as the "normal" meals we have come accustomed! I needed to spice things up in the kitchen I am sick of making the same thing every night.

10 Shows for the Man Cave

I don't know about you but I enjoy TV. Do not get me wrong I also enjoy a lot of other things too! I have been married for five years come July and I have to say my spouse does not always agree with my choice in TV shows. Since we do a great job of compromising I decided to share a list of Netflix TV shows perfect for the "Man Cave". I am just going to state a disclaimer here these are not JUST for the Man Cave or men for that matter. I watch a lot of these shows myself. I just thought it would be fun to have a "Chick Flicks list" and "Man Cave list"!

4. them Idiots World Tour-Ok..so I may LOVE these comedians...
5. RoadKill- Enjoy cars, hot rods and well junk???

Irish Bangers & Mash Recipe

Every St. Patrick's Day we have a little dinner tradition. It started a few years back when I was introduced to "Bangers & Mash" at a friends house. At first I was a bit skeptical my family would eat it but years later it is still one of our all time favorite meals to have! In fact I stock up on Bangers and freeze them so we can eat this dish year round! If you are wondering what it taste like I would compare it to a sausage but a zillion times BETTER (in my opinion)! 
What you will need:
Potatoes ( m family LOVES red but any will work)
Butter (for the Mashed potatoes)
Splash of milk ( again for the mashed potatoes)
Package of Bangers ( Usually found with Sausage and or in the deli around St. Patrick's Day)

Help Reduce a Baby's Upset tummy

 As a parent you go through all sorts of things when you frist bring your baby home. My family members always warned be early on learn your baby's cry. Because they have different cries for different wants or needs. I thought a cry is a cry what the heck are they talking about? After I brought my bundle of joy home I realized VERY quickly learning your little one's cry REALLY is a life saver! This is HOW they communicate to you and let you know when something is wrong for instance. My son was lucky he never cried through the night and I enjoy sleep for most of his baby stages.
“This review was made possible by iConnect and UpSpring.  I was provided compensation to facilitate this post, but all opinions stated are 100% mine.”
I know many are not so lucky and I can sympathize with you! I have seen the tired look of new parents in the beginning months of the baby stage. My nephew was one of them. He was so finicky that he literally cried all the time. Nothing would help and he has gas like you would NOT believe. We tried bouncing, soothing, feeding, changing you name it but he still would cry non-stop. The doctors would say "That's normal" and we basically were left with no answers. Then I was introduced to UpSpring's Probiotic + Colostrum packets.
Finally I could give him something to help easy the pain he was having and relieve the painful gas filled baby tummy.

Forever Connected Memory Books

I am excited to tell you about a KickStarter campaign for Forever Connected Memory Books. A interactive photo memory book on your phone or tablet that allows you to celebrate memories with the people. The best part? You can personalize it as well as choose who you share it with.

This is a sponsored post. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
Using this allows memories from your next family event or get-together to last forever. Just take the photos and let Forever Connected build your personalized memory book! After the event, you can sign and send personal messages to each person right in the book! Which completely helps me because I love "thank you" cards but have little time to send them out these days. You can also decorate it!! Send fun stickers to each other: Place a fun sticker anywhere in your book and even place them in others’ book (don’t worry, they can hide it if they like).
