Valentine’s Day is almost here! I know, this seems to be a huge holiday for many “lovers”. But it seems so many mom’s overlook it. I mean, we have kids already, we know we are loved, its just another day right? I have always felt that way myself. But I am starting to realize maybe I SHOULD take some time to celebrate. I mean, I spend my day wiping butts, cleaning house, cooking meals, feel lucky if I get to shower uninterrupted, I do so much that I neglect myself and in return neglect my husband. What is it with moms? Before kids I was all for dress me up, take me out, and lets have a ball! Why should that part of life be completely erased? So, I am breaking my own vow and thinking I may actually attempt to celebrate Valentine’s Day this year. It feels weird to … read more

Tropical Smoothie- A Healthy Valentine’s Treat!

wrap

I have lived near Tropical Smoothie Cafe locations for quite some time. Oddly enough, I had never stepped foot inside of one. I guess I just thought to myself “who goes all out for a smoothie when I could make one at home?” The buildings appear a bit tiny so I never entertained the idea that the word Cafe was included in the name for a reason. They actually have food. Really? And its GOOD food! I recently had my first visit as a review opportunity and took my four year old along with me. It opened our eyes to a whole new place to eat! As you can see, the little one is all about his smoothie. I mean whats not to like about a “healthier milk shake” as I called it to get him excited. I wasn’t sure what to expect about sizes, but the kids size is … read more
