McCormick Steakhouse Burgers – Classic Burger Seasoning Mix

I really don't need to say much for this post because a picture is worth a thousand words.

What I will say is that I am so thankful for Crowdtap for sending me these samples and giving me the opportunity to add more flavor to my life!





I'm never making hamburgers without McCormick seasoning again.  Just the Classic Burger seasoning made the meal.  You can bet that when we get back from Hawaii I'm going on a grilling binge.

(FYI this was my first time manning the grill during hamburgers and I did perfect!  Hooray!)

Influenster's TLC VoxBox

Finally!  After months of waiting, Influenster decided to grace me with another one of their VoxBoxes!

Neosporin Neo To Go! - $4.97 to $7.50



A handy compact, easy to use antiseptic and pain relieving spray.  Considering I have two small children this is a very handy thing to have around.  The amount of time they trip over themselves is simply amazing.

Breyers Gelato Indulgences - $4.49 - $5.99



I got a coupon for one free icecream.  I've tried a couple other brands of Gelato and I am a BIG fan of the texture.

Ivory Bar Soap - $3.99 for a 10-pack





Not a big bar soap fan here but I am a fan of the Ivory brand in general.  I'm thinking I'm going to do the microwaving soap experiment with my kids - it will be a super memorable and fun activity for them.

Also, I love the vintage printed packaging it comes in!  This 4oz bar is 99.44% pure and great for people with sensitive skin.

Avon Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother - $30


It's been years since I've used any Avon products.  I'm not exactly in need of a wrinkle smoother yet, but there are a few fine lines for me to use it on.  This product is a cream to powder specially designed to go over moisturizer and/or makeup.  It claims to instantly reduce the look of any type of wrinkle on the forehead, crow's feet and eye area.

Puffs To Go - $0.49 for a single pack



I love on-the-go tissue packs.  It's as simple as that.  With two kids and one man child the uses are endless.  If we didn't have a truck with an actual tissue box in the center console this pack of tissues would be in the car.  This is going in a drawer to replace the one that is in my purse when it runs out.

Shell Fuel Rewards Network Card


If you use your card at participating shell stations on products, car washes and auto services you can hearn 15c/gallon off.  You can earn an extra 10c/gallon off for every $50 you spend at participating resturant locations, and another 50c/gallon for every $50 spent shopping at the Online Mall with a 10x merchant.

I love getting rewards but the amount of rewards cards I'm required to carry around is getting ridiculous.  On our daily routes, there are literally no convenient shell stations.  I think if we lived somewhere different this card would be very helpful but right now it means going out of our way every time we wanted to get gas, and let's face it, nobody enjoys getting gas enough to go out of one's way for it.

Watercolor Bearded Irises

I found this workshop and decided that I needed to try it out:

Here is my result!  I definitely added my Kirsten twist to it and I like how it came out.


I need a lot of practice still.   I think it would have looked better with a blue background but I was being somewhat true to the whole color wheel exercise I'm sure she was going for.
