Take A Walk On The Wild Side With Denny’s New Kids Aventure Menu! @DennysDiner #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Denny's. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating. All opinions are my own.    I make no secret of the fact that my family and I eat out a lot.  Since I am a Working Mom and a business owner, I often don't have time to cook every single day so we head out to our favorite restaurants.  This past week, we had the opportunity to visit Denny's to check out their new kids Adventure Menu which includes a delicious selection of customizable dishes and National Geographic Kids content.     My son immediately loved Denny's interactive menu featuring a variety of quirky animal facts, quizzes and fun fill-in stories.  My husband and I loved that he was engrossed in the menu's adventures as we waited for our meal to arrive.  Those of you who are parents understand the importance of keeping kids engaged when they are impatient at a restaurant and eager to eat right away.    The fact … [Read more...]

We Celebrated Our Son’s Eleventh Birthday At @Benihana Restaurant! #BeniKids #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Benihana. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.

What Does It Mean To Truly Serve? #BestMates #Ad #Giveaway

*This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Outback Steakhouse.  All opinions are 100% mine.    In a few weeks, most of us will be celebrating July 4th and spending time with our loved ones outdoors barbecuing and watching fireworks.  Many times we forget the true meaning of some of these holidays as we get caught up in the festivities.  Since this particular day is dedicated to celebrating our independence, I thought it fitting that I pay tribute to the service member in our family who selflessly helps protect our freedom and the freedom of all Americans through her service in the United States Navy.     I've known my Sister in Law, Ebony, since she was a 13 year old girl and I began dating her older brother whom is now my husband for the past thirteen years.  I was immediately drawn to her sparkling personality and her ability to light up the room with her smile.  While my husband was stationed at Fort Bragg during his military service, she and I would spend girl time … [Read more...]
