Resume Dois and Don’ts – Pt. 1

When the track “Dont You Just Forget About Me” is performed, those who have noticed The Breakfast Club (1985) immediately think of moments from the basic film. When this music was matched using the film, it kept on the minds of the generation.

Good Hands for the Good Life #GoodLife

This post brought to you by Allstate. All opinions are 100% mine.

When I started this blog, I had no idea what I was doing.  Heck, I am still not an expert baker or cooker (though my kids tell me I am a good cooker all the time!).  However, I had to move beyond thinking I looked like an idiot with some of my recipes.  I had to realize that not everyone is going to like what I make.  However, I also had to get rid of the fear that all of my recipes were going to NOT turn out.  What surprised me the most was that most of my recipes do turn out.  Every so often I try something that doesn't win over my family. 

Granted, life isn't as simple as a cooking/foodie blog.  I know that.  However, if you can overcome small challenges like this, you too can have an Allstate Good Life

Tell me about some of your own good life stories in the comments!  How have you overcome adversity to live a good life?

Litter Free Lunch

With the school year right upon us, it’s time to start thinking about school lunches. I know, for me, there is nothing worse than the feeling that your packing your kids lunches in brown paper bags every day that they are throwing away. Have no fear though — Litter Free Lunch is here. At Litter Free Lunch, you are able to get lunch bags, sandwich bags, snack bags, and even cloth napkins. You kids can literally go litter free at lunch.

Madison tried one of these bags out last year. She had snack time every day (and most of the time ate hot lunch so we didn’t need it for that). However, for snack time, I sent a snack and juice with her every day. I was able to use one of their bags instead of a brown paper bag, and it held up! Plus, I was able to show Madison (my 6 yr old) about reusing and recycling. I love that most of their products come in multiple colors, so there is something for everyone out there.

If you are trying to make your life more green, I recommend checking out Litter Free Lunch.  Just by NOT brown bagging it, you can help save the environment.
