The fun bus has arrived in town – Come see what Stoli Lemonade is all about!

This post brought to you by STOLI® Vodka. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m gonna start this one off by professing my love for lemonade – especially in the summer months. Here in Texas, when the heat hits the triple digits almost every day, I find myself always looking for a refreshing drink to satisfy. I’ve tried the Stoli Lemonade recipe a couple of times during our World Cup get-togethers a few weeks back. It’s a  great recipe for sharing a good time with friends and family, and have that nice, icy drink in your hand.

How ’bout that bad boy!? Here’s the secret recipe: 2 parts Stolichnaya® Vodka, 4 parts lemonade poured over a big pitcher of ice. Throw a few lemon slices in there too, and mix it up. Serve and enjoy! There’s so many ways to adapt this recipe – it’s a blank canvas for pretty much anything… Get some ideas on pinterest or See more Stoli recipes and ideas on Instagram.

Good news if you live in Boston, Dallas, Denver, New York and New Jersey… You get the chance to see what the Stoli Limo-nade Truck is all about! Basically, it’s the fun bus that will roll into each city to promote the new Vaue Added Pack (VAP) that is being sold with Stoli® beverages – an added 750ml bottle of Stoli® Vodka! Now that’s a bonus! :) Look out for this truck, and go see if you can snap up some Stoli swag to go with it… Chicago is not going to see the Stoli Limo-nade truck, but they are expected to have some awesome bar nights!

Small gifts can sometimes inspire a lifetime of creativity

When I was growing up, my long term interests for a career were all over the place. I didn't know if I wanted to be a vet or computer programmer or commercial pilot or a photographer – or… and the list goes on! Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I really didn't know what I wanted to do until I received my very first computer loaded with graphic editing software. That gift really helped guide me into the right discipline to study and I enrolled in a local college to learn more. This is where I developed my passion for graphic design and soon after, my art prints were born.

It didn't happen overnight, there was alot of people along the way that helped guide and inspire me into what I'm doing today. Just like this kid in the video entitled "My Uncle’s Gift" depicting a boy who was inspired by a gift from his uncle, I too was inspired by receiving gifts that inspired my creativity from family members. 

"Keep Going…" and "Don't Give Up" were said plenty of times along the way, and inspired a whole line of inspirational art prints that I sold for some time on etsy. 

It pleases me to know that these were also a couple of my best sellers until I stopped simply to put more focus on my blog and my family. Perhaps these inspirational words will inspire back into doing art prints again.. Who knows, right?

Have you ever had anybody inspire you as a child? I definitely want to keep the tradition of this going, because when you keep good going in your community, eventually good will come back to you – just like karma. Learn more about how New York Life can help you and your family Keep Good Going

SIMPLY RIGHT™ Baby Care Complete® from Sam’s Club

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Sam’s Club. All opinions are 100% mine.

Being a new mom is tough work – looking back, there was so much to adapt to, and not enough time to ease into it gently! When you're new to the whole mom thing, you're just kinda thrown into it as you figure out everything on the way down. Don't you just love that it's one of the most important jobs in your life, and there's no school or training for it? Anyways, the good news is, every year there's new and more interesting things on the market to make being a mommy so much easier, and cheaper for us moms who choose not to breastfeed. I fell into this category when JP was an infant, so it was important that we found something reasonably priced that worked well for us. Turns out, SIMPLY RIGHT™ Baby Care Complete® from Sam's Club  can save you tons of money! See how much you can save in a year's time by switching from the popular brand name baby formula.

One of the things that vividly sits out in my memory of late night feeding time, is my baby boy wailing and flailing his arms while bouncing and cooing to him and simultaneously mixing up a bottle of formula. What's really nice about the new SIMPLY RIGHT™ Baby Care Complete® from Sam's Club is that it's perfectly designed to use with one free hand, while you hold baby in the other arm. Who am I kidding…? For most of the first year, I nearly did everything 1-handed!

Between the easy pull tab to remove the foil seal, the scoop sits right in the top part of the dome. There's even an edge to level off your scoops so you get the perfect amount of fomula each time you use it. SIMPLY RIGHT™ Baby Care Complete® from Sam's Club is Clinically proven to support growth and development, now with Lutein for brain and eye health. See for yourself in this short video!
