Summer Time!!!

So today was an awesome day! It started out kinda poopy because of a migraine but once it was gone, the day got started. Made a great dinner out on the grill with cauliflower and shredded BBQ chicken sandwiches. I broke open my bottle of McCormick Grill Mates Brown Sugar Bourbon early for the shredded chicken and it was delicious! Guess I better go buy another bottle before the party. :/ The only issue with dinner was the pretzel burger buns I bought a couple days ago. They looked so good but once we got them out and put our sandwiches together we realized there was mold all over the buns. Are you kidding me? We only had them a couple days! We bought them from Whole Foods in Ann Arbor and I was looking forward to testing them out. What a waste of $4.00! I emailed the company that makes them (Pretzilla) know how disappointed we were.
So anyway, after dinner we loaded up Xylah, Guyol (Ed's nephew), and Cisco and headed for the park. It was the first time Cisco had been out on a leash in the real world. He surprisingly did great! He didn't really harass anyone or any dogs and everyone just gushed over him. I was kind of surprised by all the attention he got for being a Pit Bull in a little ritzy town. We took him and the kiddo's over to the park after our walk and they had a blast. The park in Whitehouse has a little toddler part that is completely fenced in, which is awesome! Ed, Xylah, and Cisco had a ball going down the slides together. Every time Ed went down the slide, Cisco had to follow.



What a silly family we are! After the park we went to General's ice cream (the BEST soft serve in the area, by far) which is conveniently right next door. Cisco had his first doggie sundae for being so good, and of course he loved it! Next we just took a little stroll through Whitehouse to walk off our ice cream then headed back for home. We really had a blast today! I just wish the rest of the weekend's weather would be a nice as today but the next two days calls for 95-105 degree weather. YUCK! You won't catch my fatty a** outside until the sun starts to go down. Maybe I'll put Xylah's pool up in a shady spot and let her have a little fun before mommy sweats away to a pile of grease.

Well I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend! Don't forget to say Thanks to all the brave men and women who sacrificed their lives for us to have our freedom! :)

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
