Frito-Lay helps children get wild this summer!



With summer already underway, parents are trying to find ways to keep their children busy and active until school starts. When it comes to my family, we try to be frugal with our summer adventures and try to take advantage of everything that our city has to offer us. One thing that we like to do is look online for offers that can save us a few dollars and luckily Frito-Lay® and Quaker Chewy® Bars are here to help us out again.

Passing the Torch

Pokemon GO! Am I right? It's taking over the nation, nay, the world. It's everywhere but don't worry this isn't another blog about Pokemon Go.

Not that I've gotten to play that much anyway.
It's about the Pokemon trading card game! Sort of. Anyway, my daughters have been into Pokemon for about a year now. They started watching the show on Netflix and my oldest slowly became interested in the trading card game. Of course this was a huge moment for me. I've played trading card games on and off for over half of my life and I was excited to have another hobby I could share with my kids.

May the Force be with us! A look at what's to come from ROGUE ONE.



If you were living in a bubble this weekend or too busy playing Pok√©mon Go, you might have missed out on some MAJOR Star Wars news revealed at Star Wars Celebration Europe. During the ROGUE ONE: A Star Wars Story panel, the poster for the movie was released to the public. The poster shows a battle taking place on the beach with the Death Star ominously looming in the background. But, that is not all the news that was announced.

Conquering the Spartan Race or Look at me trying to be Sporty 103.




See that photo above? That's the look of victory! That's the look of accomplishment! That could also be the look of me saying, "Ow! You're standing on my toe!" In actuality, that's the look of redemption, at least for me. If you remember my post from my last Spartan Race I was on a mission this time. A mission that I prepared for and felt confident with at the starting line. A mission that took me almost four and a half hours to complete. Yep, four and a half hours!
