What's Been Going On Lately

My future mother-in-law, sister-in-law, and niece and nephew all went to the strawberry farm together. We had a great time and got lots of strawberries!  Now, I LOVE strawberries, but Charlotte beat me in strawberry consumption for the day! haha. Her face was red from the juice. 
I got this awesome Bride to Be sash to wear for my Bachelorette party to review on the blog. My party is THIS SATURDAY and I'm just a LITTTTTTTTLLLEEEEEE excited!!! :) I wanted to wear this sash to the gym.... maybe people would buy me free protein shakes?!? haha
Been working on my tan in the backyard so I can proudly wear my wedding dress with NO TAN LINES!
This weekend, my dad and I had a special daddy-daughter trip. We went to CEDAR POINT aka the best roller coaster park in the country! It was super fun!
Dad is not a fan of heights, but he rode the tallest one TWICE with me! Props daddio! 

The next day, we did something that I've been DYING to do for a while... ZIP LINING!!!! 

Wallaby Yogurt Review and Giveaway!

Wallaby Yogurt sent me some coupons to try their yogurt and review on the blog. Here's some info from their website: Wallaby Organic was originally inspired by the yogurts we discovered while traveling in Australia. We set out to capture their distinctively creamy texture, delicate body, and subtle sweetness in our signature line of blended lowfat yogurts. The distinct texture and flavors of Wallaby are the result of time, patience, and premium ingredients. We start with organic milk from local, pasture-based family farms. Made in small batches, using a slow and gentle cooking method, we are able to develop the uniquely creamy and smooth texture of our products naturally. Unlike conventional yogurts, our products offer clean, true flavors with nothing artificial ever added. Today, Wallaby Organic offers a wide variety of creamy Australian-style yogurts, a European-style sour cream, and now authentically strained Greek lowfat yogurt. While our recipes were inspired by tra…

Premier Protein Crisps Review and Giveaway

I've reviewed Premier Protein in the past. They have recently come out with a new line of Crisp bars.

My Review: 11/10! OH. MY. GOODNESS.  The Honey Caramel and Peanut Butter Caramel bars were to die for! The caramel was just oozing out with each bite. These tasted like dessert, but were also packed with 15 grams of protein! They had a rice-krispie like texture mixed in with the gooey caramel. I absolutely LOVED these! 
I'm giving the Chocolate Mint ones to Jared (because I hate chocolate, remember) to take as some fuel for his golf tournaments. I just know he is going to love them too! 
Premier Protein is giving away 5 OF MY READERS a chance to win a prize package including: - 4 Premier Protein shakes: 2 shakes in each flavor (chocolate and vanilla)

Skinny Pop - Black Pepper Review

I don't know how, but SKINNY POP has done it again. They created and sent me a new flavor to review, Black Pepper! 

My future niece, Charlotte, was SO EXCITED to open up the box when the UPS guy rang the doorbell. haha. 
We all immediately dug in and thought it tasted AWESOME!
It tastes very similar to the original flavor, but has a little ZING to it. 
If you haven't tried this popcorn yet, you are MISSING OUT!!!

Quest Bar Review and Giveaway!

I've reviewed Quest Barsin the past, but this time, they sent me a variety pack to review and have a giveaway! :)
Here's some info from their website: Quest bars were designed for anyone who cares about good nutrition and a leaner body.That's really all it takes to become part of the Quest team. It doesn't matter what your specific quest is, just that you have one. So, whether you're trying to lose a beer belly to pick up more chicks, trying to get SHREDDED and lean for a competition, or you're looking to add some lean muscle mass so you can whoop Michael Phelps' butt the next time you see him down at the Y. Quest Bars are going to give you exactly what you need to be successful at any goal you strive for.The funny thing is, there is no big mystery to good nutrition and dieting.

*************************************************** Review: I loved the texture of these. They were in between popcorn and a chip. They sent three different flavors. 
Twisted Salt: 8/10 These were a good flavor. I liked the ones with a little more flavor on them though. 
Memphis BBQ: 8/10 Tasted just like a BBQ chip. Great for summer picnic lunches!
Sweet Cinnamon: 10/10! This tasted li…

Settling In and Summertime Workouts!

Well, I've officially got my new membership at the local YMCA and I couldn't be happier! :) They don't have every single machine that I did at my old Y, but it's pretty cool too. They have my SPIN class that I love, but unfortunately they do not have Dance it Out. BUT... they do have a crazy awesome INSANITY class and it is so much fun! Super intense and makes me SWEAT! I love it! 
My new routine looks something like this: Monday- Strength Training and SPIN Tuesday - Walk around the neighborhood  (BTW we have KILLER hills...) and playing while babysitting Wednesday - Strength Training and SPIN Thursday - Zumba  Friday - Strength Training and INSANITY Saturday - Zumba Sunday - rest day
I've made a few friends at the gym, so that's nice. I was talking about Dance It Out one day, and a lady told me there was a Zumba Training coming up. She actually owns her own studio and wants me to get certified so I can TEACH it there! She said I could use some more modern mu…
