Do you have a team or a special cause you are looking to raise funds for? Then you want to check out Pear. Setting up a Pear is an easy way you can earn money for your favorite charity, group or event. Right now Johnsonville has teamed up with Pear and are looking for females in the Philadelphia, Pittsburgh or Baltimore areas to create a Pear and invite their friends to join in their fundraising activity. There is no money involved and your group could be awarded a charity donation of up to $1,000 for doing things you probably already do!  The best part is you keep whatever you earn even if it's not the full $1,000.  So grab your moms, aunts and girlfriends and create a Pear for the charity/team of your choice!

I LOVE Halloween. So much that I secretly start stalking all my favorite stores around the middle of August eagerly awaiting the first sign of Halloween treats and decorations. One of the first things we usually find, or my son usually finds is the Halloween Oreos. You know the ones where they replace the white cream with the orange. I love creating spooky snacks for my son throughout the month of October to help get us in the Halloween spirit. Since we are getting ready for our annual Halloween Party, we had some fun this weekend creating some spooky snack ideas with Wheat Thins and Oreos.

Doing the laundry is probably my least favorite chore. Probably because it's time consuming and I'd rather be doing a hundred other things than washing, drying and folding clothes. With a brand new baby at home, my time is even more precious and I'd rather be cuddling with her or playing with my son instead of doing the laundry. But I digress, laundry needs to be done. It's just one of those unfortunate things that we have to do. So I'm sharing a my little secret that's helped me make the best of laundry day and even helped me save time when doing the laundry. Time is precious so anything I can do to spend more time with my family, I'm all for it. That's why I'm excited about Suavitel, a fabric softener that actually dries your laundry 30% faster!

Get Creative with Creative Galaxy - A New Art Adventure Series by Amazon Prime Instant Video



Ever since my son could pick up a crayon he loved to draw. So it's no surprise that he loves art class and drawing and creating fun projects. In fact, one of our favorite things to do in the winter when it's too cold to go out is art projects. Whether it's a homemade gift for someone or a picture just for me, I love to help him explore his creative side. That's why I was excited to learn about Creative Galaxy, a new interactive art adventure series on Amazon Prime Instant Video.
