    Try Premier Protein Mixed Berries Smoothies on the Run #MixedBerrySmoothie

    I was given this product in exchange for my honest opinion. All opinions expressed are my own.     For the past 15 years I’ve been a mainstay on night shift and as I get older it’s very hard trying to maintain a healthy lifestyle. One of the things that I’ve been able to cut out over the years is the fried, greasy foods from my diet. Before I hit the late-30s I had a bad habit of eating hamburgers, chicken and pretty much all kind’s fried foods and big dinners around 4 o’clock in the mornings. Instead of eating a complete dinners I’ve learned to eat healthy snacks during…

    Sign Up for the Hot Wheels Rewards Race Program

    Post sponsored by Lunchbox but all opinions are my own. Remember when you were growing up when the best toy you would get whenever you go to the store was a new Hot Wheels car? Those cars always had the best designs and you were guaranteed to find a car or 2, well I’ll be honest I wanted them all but my parents wasn’t hearing that. To be honest, that’s probably where I got my car fascination because my interest in car skyrocketed after that.

    Picked Up New Wipers at Walmart #WalmartAuto

    I spruced up my car using Rain-X Expert Fit Wiper Blades from Walmart, as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #WalmartAuto       It still puzzles me that with so many people still haven’t checked out the auto section whenever they’re shopping at Walmart. One of the best things about me moving is that I’m about 5 minutes away from Walmart. Now that I’m so close I’m usually there about 3 times a week because that’s where we do our grocery shopping, the girls get their nails done and my youngest daughter loves their pants also. For me, whenever my wife is shopping around Walmart I can pick…

    Campus Book Rentals Saving My Wife Money

      Recently my wife has been thinking about quitting her stressful job and going back to school full time.  Of course I support her decision but to be honest, I am not looking forward to spending money on those high priced textbooks any time soon. I recently finished my degree and I spent tons of money on textbooks that were “required” but we NEVER used!  My son starts college in 3 years and to be honest I was going to enjoy the extra money saved from not having to buy textbooks till then. However I would never tell my wife that.  That is why I was happy when I remembered…
