I have a confession. Me and cooking are frenemies these days. Last night for instance, made it back from the grocery store and had a million ingredients out to make arroz con gandules y chorizo (rice and pigeon peas with chorizo) and BEFORE I started cooking I was over it. Don’t get me wrong, I love love a home cooked meal, but after a long day of work or relaxing day the last thing I want to do lately is spend a bunch of time in the kitchen making a mess and then having to clean up the mess. No thank you!

Sometimes I need an “easy button” and that’s where GrubHub comes in. From pizza to sushi to falafel, in Boston there are more than 70 restaurants offering takeout and delivery on GrubHub! Dread going to the grocery store after work or on the weekends (or at all!) don’t fret, GrubHub has you covered whether you’re in Back Bay or West End, there’s a restaurant that’s sure to have what ya need!

Ordering is a breeze with a GrubHub app available on Google Play and the App Store. The hardest part of ordering is deciding what to eat!

I love the convenience of ordering takeout when the thought of the kitchen irritates me, but what irritates me even more are delivery charges! What a total bummer! You’re in luck with GrubHub who is offering a new deal where they eat the delivery fee for you! SCORE!! Even better? A $50 GrubHub voucher for one reader!!

Content and/or other value provided by our partner, Target. All opinions are my own. Please visit Target.com/Pharmacy for restrictions and see your pharmacist for details. #sponsored

Target25

I know I’ve said it before – our family loves Target! It is literally a one-stop shop and we’ve visited our local Target stores very often over the past few months, especially since my daughter has decided to have a growth spurt. All of her jeans don’t fit anymore – I’m baffled!! It’s only a matter of time before she’s taller than me…so sad!! There is something very calming about going into Target and knowing that I can get everything I need for myself and family at prices that don’t make me cringe! Additionally we’ve started using Target Pharmacy to fill our monthly prescriptions and love all of the amazing benefits to filling our prescriptions at a place we’re already so familiar with.

I’m a busy Mom on the go who is on a budget and I’m all about getting the most bang for my buck and Target Pharmacy Rewards is not only simple and valuable but rewards me! Get excited people! Their pharmacy services are above and beyond others because there aren’t a certain number of points you have to earn to get your rewards, after filling just five prescriptions (vaccinations count too!) you’ll receive 5% off your in-store or online purchase! I love Target prices, but I love saving additional money, my daughter will be in college in just seven more years so I’m all about savings!

I encourage you all to Flip the Script page and start using Target! Isn’t that catchy! Seriously – with Target Pharmacy Rewards you can easily earn rewards by filling your scripts, getting your pets scripts filled and getting vaccinations like the flu shot. Walk into your local Target store and get a variety of vaccinations for shingles, whooping cough, tetanus, meningitis and pneumonia – all without an appointment.

Not like I needed another reason to love Target, but I’m so impressed with how they are rewarding Target Pharmacy Rewards Program customers like me to flip the script and use Target Pharmacy. It’s really a no brainer since I’m in Target at least once a month and that’s how often I refill my scripts! You can’t beat the value either – they offer hundreds of $4 generics and a price match guarantee. So awesome!!

And now to the giveaway – one lucky reader will win a $25 Target giftcard – just in time for the holidays. Maybe you’ll treat yourself or buy something for someone else! Whatever you decide you gotta enter first!! Entering couldn’t be easier – and be sure to leave a comment!

View Life Better with LG’s Curved OLED Televisions

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Coopertize and LG Electronics. All opinions as always are my own.

Up until this past Spring our family owned one TV that was just around 20”. Did I just hear you gasp? I know – it was super small! But it did what we needed it to do and we spent our fair share of time singing along to many Disney movies! Earlier this year we took the plunge and purchased a 32” TV and WOW, what a difference! We don’t watch a ton of TV in our house, but when we do we desire to have a nice viewing experience. I thought my 32” was awesome, until I learned about LG’s Curved OLED televisions. And now my mind…is blown!

What’s an OLED television? Put simply, it’s the latest technology on the market from LG (released in 2013) that brings together breakthrough performance in a thin sleek design.

The curved design provides a more natural viewing experience and with three times less blue light then LED TV’s OLED users experience less eye fatigue. So awesome!

These babies are gorgeous and I was able to experience the very obvious differences between LG OLED’s and competitor models. The difference was crystal clear. OLED televisions outperform LCD with a response time 1000x faster and just 4.5mm at its thinnest point! Talks about performance and perfect picture quality!

It’s no surprise that LG’s OLED was named “King of HDTV for 2014” – it’s clearly the best technology on the market for curved display and are available in 55”, 65” and 77”. You’re making an investment with one of these bad boys as the starting price is $3,500!

While I don’t think we’ll be adding in one of these in our home anytime soon (it’d take up ½ our living room!) it’s fantastic to see how far we’ve come with technology and what is available for consumers!

Have you heard of OLED televisions? Would you purchase one?

It’s always hard to believe how fast the holidays arrive once the weather gets chilly. Friends of ours have already begun decorating their homes for the holidays and some have even (gasp) purchased a Christmas tree. Already! Whatever holidays you may or may not celebrate – one thing is for sure. There is something really special about the joy and sparkle that surround the holiday season.

Our local Macy’s store in Downtown Boston is preparing for a holiday spectacular for all ages complete with guest appearances, family friendly activities, and special holiday displays and a big ol tree! If you’re in town the day after Thanksgiving, Friday, November 28 and are looking for something fun to do– this is it! There will be a full lineup of activities throughout the store beginning at 12pm, cumulating with a 5pm light up ceremony on Summer Street just outside of the store with more special appearances and some singing!

Review: ANNIE The Musical in Boston

Disclosure: I received a four pack of tickets to attend Annie. All opinions – as always are my own.

This past Wednesday our family was invited to the opening night of ANNIE The Musical at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre in Boston. Along with my sister and niece we waited anxiously for Annie and Oliver Warbucks to arrive for the red carpet. And oh – they arrived in style!

Little Annie was played by 9 year old Issie Swickle – and as soon as she got out the car she was a ray of sunshine and generously signed playbills for eager kids including my own!

20141105_181149

I mean who doesn’t love Annie? It’s a great show, with incredible music and a great ending. Watching the movie that we love so much come to life on stage was a special experience. The group of orphans were animated and dynamic and a lot of fun. Miss Hannigan played by Lynn Andrews was my favorite character in the musical! She brought her own sass and humor to the musical that I know the adults really enjoyed!

After we left the show my daughter pulled me aside and asked me if there were any singing or dancing camps she could attend next summer. She was taken by the coordination and enthusiasm of the kids in the show and it only fueled her desire to one day (sooner than later) hit the big stage!

Be sure to catch ANNIE while the show is in Boston which is until November 16, 2014! Directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin and choreographed by Liza Gennaro, this production of ANNIE is a brand new incarnation of the iconic original. Featuring book and score by Tony Award®-winners Thomas Meehan, Charles Strouse and Martin Charnin, ANNIE includes such unforgettable songs as “It’s the Hard Knock Life,” “Easy Street,” “I Don’t Need Anything But You,” plus the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow.”

20141105_182708

You can catch the show Tuesday through Saturday evenings at 7:00 pm; matinees on Thursday, November 6 at 11:00 am, Tuesday, November 11 at 2:00 pm, and Saturdays at 2:00 pm; and Sundays at 1:00 pm and 6:00 pm.
