The Power Of The Heart by Baptist de Pape: Finding Answers by Opening Your Heart

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/The Power of The Heart

I have always been one of those people that believe things happen for a reason.  After reading Baptist de Pape's new book The Power Of The Heart, I've come to realize that things not only happen for a reason but because I followed my hearts path.

Febreze Home Harvest Collection: Skinny Crockpot Cinnamon Toasted Almond & Pecan Recipe

This is a sponsored post for SheSpeaks/Febreze

Oh Fall, how I love you!  Living in Missouri, I get to experience all of the seasons and my favorite season is definitely Autumn.  I love seeing the changing of the colors around me; the leaves changing from green to yellow, orange and brown.  I love the crispness in the air, the cool breezes and jacket weather.  And I love the scents; pumpkin lattes, gingerbread, apple pie and Thanksgiving roasted turkey.  Yes, I realize that these scents mostly have to do with food but these are some of my favorites.

What scents remind you of Autumn?  You can now enjoy those scents all Fall long with Febreze's Home Harvest Collection!

Fit Made Fun Party: Teaching Kids To Live A Healthier Lifestyle Using LeapFrog Leap Bands & ClifBar

Disclosure: I received product from Mom SelectCLIF Kid and LeapFrog to throw a Party. All opinions are my own.

I've struggled with my weight ever since I was very young, it has truly been a lifelong battle.  Since my children were born, I have tried to instill healthy habits in them so they are not plagued by the same difficulties.  My son is very active, fit and enjoys healthier food.  My daughter, it seems, has inherited the same "sweet tooth" as me.  I can not lie, I worry.  However, I know that worrying does not solve any problems so I try to be more proactive.  This past Saturday, Leap Frog and CLIF Bar provided me with materials to throw a #FitMadeFun Party which focused on keeping kids healthy!  Perfect, right?!

Orange Caramel Corn Mix Recipe with 100% Florida Orange Juice: A Perfect Game Day Snack

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of MomCentral Consulting for the Florida Department of Citrus. I received promotional item to thank me for participating.

The family and I are huge Football fans.  The Saints are our team of choice and every Sunday we are glued to the TV rooting them on!  Oh, yes!  Now that Football season is here, my Sundays are filled with football and cooking because no game is complete without some delicious tailgating food!  Snacks are a must during the game and one particular treat we enjoy having is popcorn.  Well, this year I decided to take it up a notch and make homemade caramel popcorn.  Even better, I decided to give it a bit of a zing by adding 100% Florida Orange Juice to the recipe.  Check it out!
