My @HoneyBakedHam #Review. Are You Hosting a #SuperBowl #Party but not Ready for #GameDay ? Check out #HoneyBakedGameDay #Catering #Ad


Disclosure: I received product for free to facilitate a Review & Honey Baked Ham $25.00 Gift Certificate Giveaway.  
Sponsored, for HoneyBakedForYou.com

The Spread was 3-year old Approved.
I have to admit that I am extremely happy with how easy it was to go to my local Honey Baked Ham store and pre-order a catering event.  I opted to go in, and do pick up for the next day instead of delivery.  I made it extremely easy for them.  I first checked online to see what would be ideal for a nice snackable Superbowl Spread.  I added everything to the check out cart, but I printed it, and brought it in store with me.  There was no wait, Both counters were open, and even while ordering, others were coming in and being seated at the restaurant side by different employees.  I asked for them to call me when it was ready.  They did the very next day, almost as soon as they opened.  I was impressed.  

(I wanted to check the place out too.)


Inside the Honey Baked Ham Location on Sawmill Rd, Columbus, Ohio blew me away.  As you walk in to the right of you is a little sitting area.  Then inside is a refrigerated section with Salads, Sandwiches, Sodas, Bacon, Cold Hams, and Turkeys.  Displays for Jams, Honey, Mustards and Sweets all through out the store. I am glad I went in, instead of just ordering online or by phone. To the left of me was a little cafe/restaurant that you could sit down, and order to eat.  I had no clue Honey Baked Ham was like this inside.  I know a lot of people think it's just Hams, but, Oh No! It's so much more.

My Honey Baked Ham Catering Spread Included, 


Broccoli Bliss
Item# 21220 $4.99



Sweet Bites Tray
Item# 35038 $10.43



Macaroni and Cheddar Salad
Item# 21215 $4.99



Signature Meat Platter
Item# 35028 $32.83



Ultimate Super Sandwich Medium
Item# 35109 $32.99


Condiment Tray
Item# 35031 $14.00

Dasani 12 oz. Water
Item# 13128 $4.00 ($1.00 a water, qty 4)


Sub Total: $104.23, Then I used a $25.00 off Coupon that I found online that's for Catering when you spend over $100.00.

When I went back and paid at pick up for my order I received a $5.00 Gift Certificate for my Next Catering Order! How nice is that! I am hooked now.

My order came with Tongs, Napkins, Coupons to give out, and Honey Mustard.  I wish it came with Forks, and Plates too.  It completely slipped my mind to purchase some.  Luckily I had some. The tablecloths, and decorations I purchased from the Dollar Store.

The Ultimate Super Sandwich was SO THICK! That is a regular sized Paper Plate!

The Food is by far 100000x even better than it looks, and it looks Amazing.  I ran out of room on my plate. My over all impression is, Why have I never tried them before!!? I've talked to a lot of people that thought like I did, that it was just Spiral Sliced Hams, and Whole Turkeys when it's not just that. A lady that was being helped beside me was ordering a boneless turkey, with a side dish, that came to $16.00.  It was some special in store promotion they were doing.  I've already told my husband I want to go back, and order soup, and a salad. Also I was suckered the first trip, and bought Sassafras Root Beer.  I'm a sucker for good root beer in glass bottles.

According to an Harris Interactive Poll, Americans that host a Super Bowl party spend at least $70.00. Below is everything I bought for $75.00 (There is a $25.00 off $100.00 Catering Order available online for Honey Baked Ham.) If you are planning on spending $75.00 you might as well go for $100.00 and use that Coupon! 

They were Heavy, and I was Happy! My Catering Order.

"It's not just the pizza delivery guys who will be ringing doorbells. It turns out that roughly 48 million Americans will order takeout or delivery food from a restaurant instead of cooking up grub at home" Says National Restaurant Association. Find out more Superbowl fun facts by clicking here.

If you are going to order from Honey Baked Ham, don't forget about these coupons, and promotions. See if they are available in your area. 

It doesn't matter what team you are rooting for, The Seahawks vs. The Broncos, least everyone will agree the Food was Delicious!

The Nuts and Bolts of #Franchising


Ever think about owning your own business? As in owning a Franchise?  How about owning a Supercuts? You won't be cutting hair. You would have licensed employees for that, also normal business hours, managers, trained staff, and  Below are some the most common misconceptions about Franchising, and the Truth.

Common Supercuts and Franchising Misconceptions:

  • This business is for hairstylists. It's not a serious business for people who aren't hairstylists.
  • You need to know how to cut hair to open a Supercuts franchise.


The Truth about Supercuts and Franchising:

  • The hair care industry is stable. It is a need based business, not a want based business. (Frozen yogurt is a want, but a haircut is a need, both in good times and in bad.)
  • Cutting Hair cannot be made technologically obsolete.
  • Services must be performed by a licensed professional, you won't ever be cutting hair, you will be in charge of running the business instead.


It's simple to own a Supercuts. You don't have a high amount of staff, inventory costs are low, hours are especially reasonable compared to other franchise industries such as food, automotive, child care, fitness, etc.

The Supercuts brand is widely recognized. It's also backed by national advertising, robust web and mobile presence and the Supercuts brand is sought after nationally.

A recent NPR article discussed some of the whys and hows franchisees chose Supercuts.

Does Rheumatoid Arthritis run in your family? It does in mine.


I found out what bone pain felt like when I separated my tibia plateau from my tibia, and fractured down. Since Rheumatoid Arthritis runs in my family (My father suffers from it.) I was told by my Orthopedic doctor that either Arthritis, or Rheumatoid Arthritis is in my future. There are days I feel like my body is attacking itself, and every joint hurts. But, also because my knee has an Open Reduction Fixature in it, along with Cadavers that bend to 90 degrees so I can still walk without assistance, I feel the bone on bone, and swelling. I'm only 31, the average female with Rheumatoid Arthritis has a history of it in their family, the age ranges also from 25 - 45 for developing the condition. My heart goes out to any one with bone pain. For me, I start to favor the side of my body that doesn't hurt as much, and balancing my weight like that every time I stand up is taking a toll on my spine, and other joints. I do believe a diet, and exercise is a must. I refuse to give up, there are way too many things to try to make life still livable. Every body is different, and because of that every possible way to make things more tolerable should be tried. Right now I am on a Fat Free diet, no caffeine, and no tea because I was just hospitalized for pancreatitis. I "flex" my knee's daily, and stretch when I wake up every morning or I get what I call "marsh mellow foot." Even if you are young, and you are experiencing bone pain, you should bring this up to your doctors. I also believe in taking vitamins. You may think you are eating enough nutrients, but if your body is attacking itself, those nutrients may not even make it where they are supposed to. Please take the time to read what LifeScript.com has to say about RA. It may help you, or someone you know that is suffering, and too hard headed to tell a doctor.

Join The Hydration Movement!

Happy First Day Of Summer Everyone!


Here are a few Hydration Tips For The Whole Family! Because of Health Problems, I've had to stop drinking any kind of carbonated sodas/water, coffee, and barely any tea (oh how I could drink coffee, and tea all day.) Now I drink mostly water, and might reward myself with tea once a week or so.  Which really isn't a bad thing.  Water is extremely critical for all life.  I would also rather give my 2 year old water when he is thirsty than overly sugar juices, and drinks.  It's not because I have anything really against it, but I just know all that is needed when you are thirsty, is water.  


We love the water,  so it's natural that our son does too.  I love this movement that Nestle Pure Life has started.  I truly believe when you are thirsty, you should drink water.  Nothing else is going to quench your thirst like water.

I try to just go with the flow of things.  Life really is too short, and precious to get upset over things that shouldn't matter.  All that should matter is a healthy family, your best to support that, the kids, a place to live.  Messes,  competing with others, and unwanted drama does not matter.  I believe that is part of living within your means too.  

Moms have provided many pure words of wisdom. Listed below is some of our favorite advice.

“Be patient, breathe, and smile. Everything will always work out.” #momswisdom
“Don’t be a worrywart” #momswisdom
“Be independent and follow your dreams.” #momswisdom
“If someone is giving you a hard time, give them kindness in return.” #momswisdom
“It’s always better to walk away than to say words you can’t take back.” #momswisdom
“Don’t let small details upset you. Look at the big picture and what's really important.” #momswisdom
“Your individuality makes you unique and wonderful.” #momswisdom
“Mother knows best” #momswisdom
“Opportunity is always knocking, you just have to listen hard enough to hear it.” #momswisdom
“Trust your gut instincts.” #momswisdom
“Learn from your past but do not let it define you.” #momswisdom

Beehive Cheese Co. Review, Perfect Gift for that Cheese Loving Foodie.


We are a cheese loving family.  We are just starting to get back into doing "Cheese of the Week." We used to do this every week before Sy was born. We did it with Wine also.  So when I tried Beehive Cheese Co. recently, I immediately emailed the company to praise them on the quality of the cheese.  I don't think enough companies get positive feedback when deserved.

The moment I bit into the cheese, I may have started talking dirty to it.  The cheese is THAT good.  The sampler pack I received to review had four different cheeses.



Big John Cajun (Secret Cajun Recipe),Seahive (Real Seasalt & Wildflower honey), Teahive (with Black Tea & Bergamot), and Barely buzzed (Espresso, need I say more? I had tried the Barely Buzzed before, and that is what made me contact the company) are all worthy of experiencing.  Great texture on the tongue, easy to serve.  The tastes are simply amazing.

I prefer the spicy blends.  I also really like the Jams that come with some of the Gift Sets.  I've bought my hubby the set before, and that's how I found out about Beehive Cheese Co.  I like to buy him things he's never tried before, that he can eat instead of a gift that will just collect dust in the closet.  He ate the Hot Blooded Orange Jam on everything.  


Beehive Cheese Co. hand crafts their cheeses, and I can honestly say  that it is seen, and tasted in the cheese itself.  I was impressed by how fast it was shipped, and was delivered in a shipping cooler with ice.

Don't forget to give Beehive Cheese Co. some love on their social medias, 
Like Beehive Cheese Co On Facebook, Follow Beehive Cheese Co Twitter, and check out Beehive Cheese Co's website: www.beehivecheese.com to drool over all the other unique flavors.  I wish I lived near their shop in Utah because I would be there daily, sampling, and taking photos.  Some people dream of Gold, I dream of a cheese shop.  For everyone else tho,  find a retailer near you, or shop online for Beehive Cheeses.  

“What does a little monster take?”…“A Potty Break!” #PullUpsPottyBreaks #Ad



I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to Potty Training.  I also have no problem admitting I am a first time mom either! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies Pull-Ups.

We all start somewhere right? He will always be my baby, but what I do know is he's starting to take his diaper off after he uses it.  It's time to Potty Train my Big Kid, right? Right!


I keep calling the Monsters U Training pants his big kid underwear.  He has noticed the texture is different than his other diapers already. He also climbed up onto the toilet himself.  Now what? If you have any ideas, or suggestions what worked for you, Please tell me!! I am also learning more by going to Huggies Pullup's Potty Training Tips.  It's really cute, there are timers to download, even to sign up to get a phone call from Mike or Sully.

I am willing to try anything that makes this fun, and interesting for him.  He starts therapy for speech, and sensory soon at Childrens Hospital.  I am always trying to find ways to keep his interest for learning new things.  To express himself (He's non-verbal right now.) and tell me he has to go will mean so much to me.  So far, so good! This is when that No Fear Mentality will come handy.


To get Sy excited about being on the potty we also kept the Monsters U theme going by making some cookies as a treat.  I am proud of him for even sitting on the potty without throwing a fit. I also have a surprise for him when he uses the potty for the first time.  It hasn't happened yet, but I have been watching him like a mama hawk, and ready to put him on the toilet when I see him stop to go (This kid is always on the go, and into something.)


Pull-Ups helps take the scare out of potty training by making it fun and easy with new Monsters U character training pants! You can help make potty training easier by staying consistent and using rituals like the potty break. Make it a game and ask your toddler, “What does a little monster take?”…“A Potty Break!”

Visit Pull-Ups.com and “like” Pull-Ups on Facebook for more potty training tips and resources.

Baby Buds Eco Friendly Toy Review!


Autumn loves her Baby Buds Toys so much.  Her favorite is the Monkey blanket, it's also a hand puppet.  It was kissing her sweet baby cheeks, and she would smile at it.

I also noticed how soft, and light Baby Buds baby toys are.  That made me feel safe allowing her to play with them. The Owl Bowl rattles like bells, and has velkro that can be used to attach to things like strollers, musical mobiles, and car seat carriers.  The owl rattler has little ball that rattle, its cute but she isn't old enough to hold it yet.  The Monkey blanket is her favorite so far.  She's old enough to pet the monkey, and have it kiss her chubby cheeks.

They honestly are some of the cutest baby toys I've seen for Monkeys, and Owls.  If this is something you'd love for your little one, you can go here to see if your Local Target Carries Baby Buds.


They look like twins, LOL! Just kidding, tho they both are extremely adorable! You can find out more about Baby Buds by their social media websites.  I received these items for free for review purposes.

JENNIE-O Turkey Pastrami with Eggplant! So Delicious! Easy Recipes!

Switch To Turkey!


When you think of JENNIE-O Turkey what comes to come?? Do you think about Turkey Burgers? Turkey Ham? Pastrami? That is where my mind goes.  I absolutely adore the JENNIE-O Turkey Store Website.

I have a hard time digesting red meat, so I went to turkey instead.  My favorite is the JENNIE-O Turkey Pastrami.  It comes in whole chunks, and you can cut into slices yourself.

This was an extremely easy meal.  I just cut the turkey pastrami up,  lightly fried (It's already seasoned, and covered in pepper.)

I also fried up some Eggplant in almond flour (2 tsp pepper, 2 tsp of garlic powder, 2 tsp of season all.) I then dip the sliced eggplant into egg whites (I like to add dried onions to the eggwhites.)

While frying,  the oil should be HOT,  I don't turn the oil down to medium-high til the eggplants already breaded and ready to go in.

Together, this meal, along with some wine was perfect.  The Pastrami was moist, and seasoned perfectly.  I just like to blacken a little in a cast iron frying pan, and make the outside crispy.

You can find different recipes by going to JENNI-O's, it's as easy as typing in what you are craving, and it will find an easy recipe for you to make.  Check the JENNIE-O Turkey Shop Easy Recipes out by clicking here.

Boxtera Monthly Subscription Snack Box! Lot's of healthier alternative snacks!


My Boxtera Monthly Subscription Box this month was cram packed with lots of health alternative snacks.  There were brands I already buy, along with brands I had not heard of, but are some of my new favorites.

Like these Sriracha Chips!


I had never tried this brand before, and for just 100 calories it was the perfect snack.  I'm also a very big fan of Sriracha sauce.  Usually companies mess up, and make the Sriracha taste like Spicy BBQ, when Sriracha Hot Sauce just has a nice heat to it, and doesn't overpower the flavor of the food itself.  


I really liked the Garlic & Vegan Cheese Kale Chips that came in my Boxtera Box.  They were crunchy, perfectly seasoned, and my husband and I fought over these.  I did not want to share.  


The Baked SeaWeed was also a hit.  This was my husbands favorite from out the box so far.  We are snacking here and there, and have not tried something we did not like yet.  


While my 2 year old favorite were the Dehydrated Apple Chips, and Caveman Cookies.  

There was honestly something in this box that we all enjoyed.  Boxtera one month non-gift is $35.00 plus $5.00 Shipping.  If you like natural snacks, and like to try products you may never have known about before this is worth the price, and them doing all the work delivering it to your front door.  




Disclaimer: I received these products for free to review.  All photos, and opinions are my own.  My family loves snacks like these.  We also like to try different things.  Life is too short to be stuck on just boring snacks.  Hope you enjoyed the photos, and reading the review!

Memory Making Season!

Making Spring Memories; Below is an easy way to cherish them, 

This time of the year is crazy, hectic for my family.  With everyone's birthdays in the same months, all through spring, and summer.  Then Graduations, Mother’s day, Father’s day.  It's even my Wedding Anniversary! Digital Photos, and Digital Picture Frames are the most easiest, convenient way to display things. Also, giving a preloaded frame as a gift to a family member is just beautiful to me.

This time of year is filled with moments when a smartphone camera just won’t do, which it is why it is essential to have the right camera with the right features. Fortunately, Best Buy can help. Head to Best Buy to find the perfect camera to capture all these moments.


Since the camera is important, so it the display of those digital images.  Best Buy has some of the highest rated Digital Picture Frames.  I bought one that was under $50.00.  I live in an apartment, and I don't nail, or stick a lot of things to my walls, so something like this is ideal.  It changes for me, and it's nice to always see every one.

There is even a special coupon offer for 25% off Select Digital Picture frames.  Find out more, and which frames by clicking here.

I think for whatever celebration, or even for each family member,  having one of these frames for each would be ideal, and just something different.  It would also save on film developing, and saving trees!

Mothers Day Potted Yellow Rose Review

Disclaimer: I received Products for free to facilitate a review.  All opinions are my own.



I am a huge fan of plants.  Especially ones delivered to me? Alive?? That aren't cut!! I absolutely adore.  Don't get me wrong, I love beautiful fresh cut flowers too, but to me.. the love behind getting something with roots.. is by far the best.  These were delivered to me from ProFlowers.

While browsing the flowers, I kept asking my 2 year old "What flowers do you want to pick out for Mommy?" While all the plants were beautiful, the selection of Mothers Day Plants is huge.

The  hard part really is choosing which one I liked the most!  I really wanted an Orchid too but I didn't know how that would turn out with grabby little toddler hands.  I still would love one! *hint hint anyone that reads this that loves me, hahaha*



Ordering was extremely easy.    After falling for the Potted Yellow Roses I then had the choose which container I wanted.  I could have just got the container it came with that was free with the plant.  Tho, soon as I saw the yellow roses, with the Victorian Tin I just had to have that one.
Check out was easy, I chose 3 days from the order date to have it shipped.  It costs more to ship the next day, and on weekends.  I'm fine with a few days.  To me that is fast! Shipping is usually around $15.00, but keep into consideration, you are picking when you want it shipped (shipping prices vary.) Mine were mailed fast and I didn't pay the extra for rush.

 It also comes with a care instruction card.  First was to take the packing moss out, and give the plant some water.  I sat mine on the counter where it would get some direct light.

Seriously, start to browse, and I am sure there are a few you'd want for your home, and to give as gifts.  It was actually my cousin Liz's birthday this month.  Since I didn't get myself the Orchid, I bought Liz the Teacup Orchid with Chocolates.  That's how beautiful I think these gifts really are.  It was delivered to her in Baltimore, Md the day before her birthday (I chose that day!)

When I bought my cousin her birthday gift, I found some coupon codes right on the website to use for RedEnvelope Coupons.  Or try google searches, even searches on RetailMeNot.com.  I signed up for the emails, and I get % off codes that way too.

Disclaimer.  I received the Potted Yellow Roses for free from RedEnvelope to review.  All opinions are my own.  My personal experience with this company is a great one.  When it is something I really do like, I will buy from later on, and share with family, and friends.  To me, that is what life is about.  My roses made me happy, and the orchids I sent my cousin made her happy, and cry because I'm in Ohio, and shes in Maryland.  We miss eachother, but I know she loves plants too.

Grapes were used more than 6,000 years ago in beauty, Check out my review for Merlot Skin Care Red Grape Products.


I received these products for free to review for my website.  This is my first time trying Dr. Grapes aka Wayne Beckleys "Father Of Grape Seed Technology.

I don't think I ever stopped to smell a red grape, let alone bought lotion that's main ingredients were grapes.  The first thing I noticed was the scent, the scent is not sweet at all.  It's just a light, refreshing smell.  The Body Butter is my favorite.  It was thick, and made my legs feel so smooth.  


The reason why my legs felt so smooth was because grape seed antioxidants are 50 times more powerful than Vitamin E and nearly 25 times more powerful than Vitamin C.


Wearing the Merlot Divine Perfume made me feel like an Egyptian Goddess.  Ever wonder why Egyptians and Greeks skin looked so good? They ate a lot of grapes,  and also used grape seed oil's for everything. Cooking, to bathing, even to herbal remedies.  They used grapes because it was kind to the skin, and wasn't overpowering.  

I like to use the Body Wash after working out. And, then I use the skin firmer.  I have lost a lot of weight lately, and I am always trying to keep my skin full of vitamins from every form available.  

Both the Lip Gloss (tastes like berries, very delicious,) and the Lip Moisturizer are in my purse.  Love how soft, and shiny they both make my lips.  The Berry Paradise Lip Gloss is pretty tasty.  

These are all the items I received, and loved.

  • Merlot Divine Perfume
  • Lip Moisturizer 
  • Berry Paradise Lip Gloss
  • Body Butter
  • Bath Shower Gel
  • Body Firming Lotion


Right now til 4/15/13 Merlot Skincare has a Buy One Get One 50% Off Sale.  You can even get the gifts specially wrapped for mothers day. Gift Wrapping is FREE.  I know this is naughty to say.. but right now you could buy Mom one, and keep the half off one for yourself.  Hahaha.  Love you Mom, but you know I love the deals almost more than you. If your mom is anything like mine (sinus problems, and does not like overly perfume things.) This would be perfect for her.
