Like everyone else, I binged the the Queen's Gambit on Netflix in just a few short days and absolutely loved it. I found myself thinking about the story for days after - I even tried to evoke a little Beth Harmon strategy in my tennis game for awhile after having watched.I remember my Dad teaching me how to play chess as a kid and I was thinking … [Read more...]

Over the years, I've checked out a couple of different meal planning & delivery services like Blue Apron and Hello Fresh. I am not a good cook and I pretty much hate meal planning so I've always thought having one of these services would be good for us. None of them have stuck and after seeing Hungryroot ads pop up on my Facebook over the … [Read more...]

Full disclosure: this Passback football arrived in the mail, I opened it up and my first thought was, "what happened to this football?"I called Cole over and he immediately was like MOM.

Get Cash Back! Really!! My Husband recently downloaded the app Rakuten (formerly called eBates). I had never heard of it before and to be honest, I was skeptical. He told me it was an app that you can use to earn cashback on all your online purchases. I told him that I have used apps like this before and they make you fill out surveys or … [Read more...]

LOVE the assortment of Christmas pajamas that launched on sale today on Zulily. I ordered 4 sets of Christmas PJs today when I saw they went on sale and I have to say, I'm pretty proud of myself. Most years, I find myself picking through the leftovers at Target and online by Thanksgiving when most of them are sold out. But once I saw the … [Read more...]
