Giveaway: Boloco Gift Card & Nasoya Tofu

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post with Boloco. I received a Boloco gift card and Nasoya coupons. All opinions, as always, are my own.

I’m not afraid to admit that I don’t like cooking everyday. I’m not the Mom who meal plans and preps on Sundays for the week. I’m sure it would help to be better organized, but that’s just not where I am in my life! One of the worst things to do is decide to eat out and your meal is…bland. Not good!!

I’m a sucker for Mexican food and am spoiled to be surrounded by such yummy Mexican restaurants serving up warm nachos, and burriots that are sure to satisfy. I tend to stick with what I know, and when the folks over at Boloco reached out and asked if I has tried their food before, I was shocked to realize I hadn’t, considering there is one down the street from me in Harvard Square.

Weekend Wrap-Up: Memorial Weekend

Oh how I loooove long weekends. I was counting down the hours at work on Friday ready to be set FREE! Lil Mama and I didn’t have any plans for the weekend, so we picked up and left for NYC. You see, I like a schedule; I like consistency so this spontaneous trip was seriously out of my comfort zone. But, it was to see my boo in the big apple so I went with it…and I’m glad I did, we had a ball, as we always do in NYC.

The weather was sunny and warm and Saturday was crazy muggy – but better than a weekend full of rain. We spent the majority of the weekend outdoors taking in the sites and taking advantage of all the great memorial weekend activities.

Highlights:
We took a ferry over to Governor’s Island and explored the historic island. There was music, crafts, and bike riding. We got a little too close to the water and got splashed!

We love love love the Night at the Museum movies so I was psyched to bring lil mama to the American Museum of Natural History. She got really excited seeing some of the same things in the museum from the movie.

I had my *first* Coldstone experience. And I WILL be going back!!

Random subway dancing at the end of the day made everyone smile.

My weekend trips to NY have been great – but I’m glad to be home. It’s a beautifully dirty city; I wanted to shower in hand sanitizer haha. But the food, oh the fooood in NYC will have me going back in a heartbeat.

That’s my weekend wrap-up. Do share your weekend highlights!!

The Lorax is awesome & a Stonyfield Giveaway!

The folks over at Stonyfield sent my daughter and I to see the wonderful movie The Lorax in 3D this weekend. I’m sure by now we’ve all seen a commercial or ad for this wonderful movie, and I’m glad to say that it sure did live up to all the hype!
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
          Dr. Suess
From the graphics to the message, the movie was one of the best kid’s movies I’ve seen in a long time. It wasn’t just about social responsibility it was about greed, manipulation, confidence, and the environment. It made me think a lot about my role in society and how I may be helping or hurting the environment. It’s great because my daughter left wanting to plant seeds and spend time with the trees!
