Screen Shot 2014-09-02 at 2.06.03 PM

Dallas Summer Musicals has Nice Work if You can Get It coming to Music Hall at Fair Park September 2-14.

It’s the Roaring Twenties, and a cast of outrageous characters gather in New York to celebrate the wedding of wealthy playboy Jimmy Winter. But things don’t go as planned when the playboy meets Billie Bendix, a bubbly and feisty bootlegger who melts his heart. The champagne flows and the gin fizzes! NICE WORK IF YOU CAN GET IT is filled to the brim with classic songs, including “But Not For Me,” “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off,” “I’ve Got a Crush on You” and “Someone to Watch Over Me.” This sparkling, madcap tale combines laughter, romance and high-stepping Broadway magic for an evening bursting with girls, glamour and the glorious songs of Gershwin.

For Dallas tickets: Single tickets, priced from $15-$85, are available at The Box Office, 5959 Preston Royal Shopping Center #542 in Dallas, or at any Ticketmaster outlet.

Spending More time with Family, thanks to Cascade Platinum

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Cascade. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

IMG_3523

I am so tired by the time dinner rolls around each evening that I just can not fathom doing one more thing. Unfortatually this often means that the dishes sit out over night. I can get them done in the morning after the kids are off to school and Steve is at work. In the past, that meant that I would need to scrub them down as food had sat on them all night.

And then things changed for me! A friend told me to try Cascade Platinum as it includes a special enzyme that latches onto foods, breaking them down to wash them away…leaving dishes clean and sparkling!

DirtyPan

I was recently asked to host a Cascade Shining party. This was a fun get together with friends and we got to enjoy talking about “short cuts” that help save us time. Precious time that we need to spend with our kids or hubby! At the party we enjoyed some homemade Mac n Cheese and Brownies! Two things that leave dishes nasty and in need of a good scrubbing.

As my guests left, I sent them home with some Cascade Platinum and Cascade Platinum Rinse Aid to test out! Here are their before/after pictures!

Strawberry Fuel Smoothie Recipe

StrawberryBlastThis smoothie recipe is super simple! I start with my Ninja Ultima Smoothie cup and I fill it half way with Spinach leaves. I add 4-5 frozen strawberries, Almond milk to fill it about 3/4 full, then I screw on the lid. I prefer frozen strawberries as it helps with the texture.

Two add ins that I love for this smoothie: Greek Yogurt and Chai Seeds

You will not taste the spinach in this smoothie and the Ninja Ultima chops it so fine that you would never know it was there.

 

Seven Days of Healthy Smoothies with Ninja Ultima

*I was sent a Ninja Ultima for the purpose of this review and blog series. All opinions are my own and are honest!

smoothies

I have been making smoothies for over a year now and I have not found a blender that I really loved. I started with a single sized hand blender and it wasn’t at all powerful enough to blend up my smoothies to a drinkable texture. I then moved to a bigger blender and it wasn’t powerful enough to blend my ice. I was getting HUGE chunks which wasn’t at all drinkable. I tried another chopper/blender combo and it wasn’t working either. exclusive-offer-box1-interior

Since I drink between 3-5 smoothies a week, I needed something that would work well. So this brings us to this fun blog series…Seven Days of Healthy Smoothies made with a Ninja Ultima.

I love the Ninja Ultima for several reasons. The first is that it is super powerful. Within seconds I can blend my smoothies and the texture is perfect. I add spinach and my kids never know now that i use the Ninja. I love that I do not have to use the large pitcher attachment to make smoothies. I can make single serving sized smoothies. This is great for me as I normally make these for breakfast for myself after the kids are in school. The last thing that I love about my Ninja is the suction cups on the bottom. They help keep the Ninja right were I place it on the counter!

Starting tomorrow you will see the following smoothie recipes over the next seven days! Enjoy!

  • Strawberry Fuel
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Grapefruit Goodness
  • Peanut Butter Banana
  • Chocolate Cherry Fuel

Getting rewarded for setting and achieving Healthy Goals

The kids are finally back in school this week and I am so thankful because I now have more time to focus on ME! I do great with routine and this summer has really thrown me off. I need goals to help me stay focused. So this week, I made a promise to myself that I was getting back on track. Back to clean eating and working out!

walgreens

I went to Walgreens and picked up a few items to help me stay connected to my goal! I bought a case of bottled water, some raw almonds, and some Silk Almond milk to start making my smoothies again. When I have those three things, I tend to do better! I start my morning off with a smoothie made with spinach, strawberries, greek yogurt, and almond milk. I then use the raw almonds as a snack when I feel hungry. Drinking water, instead of soda or other items, is best for my body. In fact, I recently read that I should be drinking half of my weight in oz. So if I weigh 130 lbs (I wish) then I should be drinking 65 oz of water a day.healthysnacks

Another awesome way to keep myself accountable is to register with Walgreens Balance Rewards for healthy choices. This feature helps keep me living a healthy life easy by setting health goals, tracking progress, and connecting it to my Ftbit app on my phone to keep up with it all! I have several apps on my phone to help keep me moving, but the Walgreens Balance Rewards app is the only one what rewards me for my healthy activity! (I love that it pulls info from Fitbit and MyFitnessPal to reward me!)

Screen Shot 2014-08-26 at 4.54.35 PM

Here is how it works:

Simply sign up for a Walgreens Balance Rewards Account, then connect your devices and watch the rewards pile up! You can also get rewarded for setting healthy goals, getting shots, filling prescriptions, and more! 5000 points gives you $5! So you get paid to live a healthier lifestyle! BONUS! Just pull up the app and you can use the money at check out! So simple to use!

BRhealthy

Each day you can see your points! The app is so easy to use and I love being able to manage another part of my life via smart phone!

Exciting Changes in our House!

10613874_10204525553082504_1628446142_n

We have had a busy last few weeks! Getting ready to go back to school has been eventful in our house! Our youngest, Maci, broke her leg the week before school started. Poor thing did it a week before her 6th birthday…which of course was very sad because her Birthday party was a POOL party! It has been extra eventful for us because her break is high on her Tibia and she is in a FULL leg cast…this means she has to be pushed in a wheelchair, has to have help going to the bath room, and pretty much has lost all independence. If you have a 6yr old, you know this is a BIG problem! She will be casted until mid-October. Besides this crazy unexpected change for our family.

10592624_10204608281830671_8024273731950827989_n

The next exciting thing that has kept us busier then normal is that we got a Foreign Exchange student! She’s 15 and from South Korea! The girls are loving having an older sister! She’s super sweet and so far it’s been very easy! She’s a teenager, so we do expect a few bumps in the road! She will be with us thru the first week of June. We are excited for her to join us in our crazy adventures!

Any of course, we’ve had the first week of school this week! Here are the girls picts! 11th grade, 4th, 2nd, and 1st!
