Skip the Lines to Popular Attractions with The Roman Guy!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated however, are genuine and belong to the authors. Post written by my 2nd oldest son and his girlfriend.


My son and his girl have been traveling a bit lately.
They are going to share 3 of their travel posts on the blog (hurrah, I'm so happy to have them here!).
The 1st of 3: The Roman Guy, Skip the Line with the "Privileged Entrance Vatican Tour"
There is going to be a slight change of perspective and writing style in this post, assuredly a tad different than what you are accustomed to with my mother's writing   *dramatic pause* and not just mine. Today, there are two different perspectives and experiences of the same event. Kiera, my girlfriend, will share her thoughts and experience of the Tour of the Vatican, kindly and enjoyably lead by The Roman Guy as well as I will share mine.

Win All Three Smit Co. Kits! #Giveaway


All that glitters is not gold, and that's a-okay when it comes to this adorable Pedicure Party you can get from Smit. Co. Gilttery pink toe separators make painting your toes a breeze, even for the littlest of hands. Oh, and let me mention that the polish is non-toxic peel paint, which means your lil' darling is safe while using it. This collection gives you 3 different colors of polish, a nail buffer, and the toe separators. It also gives you an eye mask and sleep socks, as well as hand cream, so you can keep the pampered theme going all day (and night) long. I can totally see my granddaughter using this set with me (when she spends the night with Grandma Rosey) or her mom! How absolutely cute is this?!?!

One for me, and one for you! I have two free product coupons. I'm keeping one to try a Garden Lites selection (got my eye on the cranberry/orange muffins), and I'm giving another away to a mail4rosey reader (because I thought some of you might like that!).

Caring for your Cat


If you have a cat as a pet, then your cat is likely treated as a member of the family. One of the ways that you probably care for your cat is by taking it to a veterinarian that offers feline services. When selecting a veterinary hospital Vancouver, WA offers, you should talk to the doctors and the staff to learn more about their background and how they interact with the animals that are treated in the facility. You should also read reviews and talk to people who use the services provided before taking your cat for any kind of routine or emergency treatment.

Spoil Dad with Community Coffee Cold Brew Recipes!



It's the weekend...the weather is perfect, and I'm ready to sit back and relax with an ice cold Community Coffee Cold Brew! Have you seen these in stores yet? They're so easy to make, and super delicious too. 

Contigo Couture Collection: Practical Father's Day Gift Idea! #FathersDay


What is it with dads and stainless steel? Maybe it's brilliance??? Dads know quality, and how to get the most bang for the buck in terms of durability, so why not use stainless steel whenever you can, and that includes for your beverage bottles too! Dad works hard, so making sure he stays hydrated is a must. Contigo has created the new Couture Line where the bottles are classy enough to be in an art gallery, but functional enough to be gifted to dad for work or play (and he'll love it!!). 

I LOVE Filters Being Delivered to My Door!


This is a water filter for my refrigerator. Okay...so why am I taking a picture of it?! Because FilterSnap takes the measurements you need for a refrigerator and/or air filter (more on that shortly), and sends one to you, per your schedule request via U.S. mail...so you don't ever have to worry again about not having time to replace it (my shopping schedule is severely limited at times, I 'get' it!

Almost Wordless Wednesday: It's LEGO Time!

My son is a LEGO collector. My faves of his newest collection are the Joker and Penguin cars.

GuruNanda Makes an Essential Oil Diffuser for your Car?! #FathersDay

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



If you have a dad in your family who works hard and spends a lot of time in the car/van/truck, especially if they are doing labor or outside work, things can get a bit stinky inside of their vehicle, I'm sure. GuruNanda, the guru of all things essential oils and diffusers has come up with yet another innovative and awesome product, and this one can be used in the car! Not only can you select calming or refreshing essential oils to help dad clear his mind while driving, but you can also significantly help him clear the air. ;) Of course if dad works a white collar job, he would enjoy this too. Essential oils provide natural aromatherapy that (depending on the choice used) can help in a variety of ways... relaxation, invigorating, de-stressing, you name it.

6 Tips for Choosing a Plumber



The traditional image of a plumber isn't very flattering. It also isn't very accurate. A good plumber is a highly-trained professional with a lot of skill, knowledge and experience in everything from sink pipes to shower drains, and it takes effort to track these kinds of people down. You can't just flip open the phone book and find them at random.

So what steps should you take to locate a good plumber near you, and how can you be sure that you're hiring the right person for the job? Here are just a few suggestions.

Win new Breakfast Catering from McDonald's!


I think it is so convenient that McDonald's restaurants in Central Florida are now offering catering for breakfast! If your office is anything like mine (starting super early in the a.m.) you can probably relate to being relieved/glad when your administration announces there is breakfast in the break room! What better treat to give your employees than piping hot pancakes (their hotcakes are so good!), a delicious parfait, or one of the breakfast sandwiches they provide in the morning??

$25 Visa Gift Code & Free Product Coupon #Giveaway plus Entenmann's Father's Day Sweepstakes!

The coupons for product redemption, information, and gift card have been provided by Entenmann’s® Little Bites® so that I could try the product and share my thoughts and information about Entenmann’s® Little Bites®. The opinions expressed in this post are my own and do not reflect the opinions of Entenmann’s® Little Bites®


He's laughing because he can't hold even one of the Little Bites® in his hand without really wanting to eat it. After trying this new Vanilla flavor, I'm here to say I don't blame him one little bit(e). These are by far my favorite of all the flavors that have been made thus far (though my son loves them all and has since the first time he tried them years ago). My only boo hoo is that these are Limited Edition, which means they're going to be gone soon!! Get yours while they last. You're not going to regret it. These are delicious. 

Now let's talk about something else that is related, and still fun...

TWO GIVEAWAYS!

Engraved Photos on Dog Tags for Father's Day!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.




 If you're looking for something unique to get dad for Father's Day, how about a picture of the kids on a dog tag necklace? It's 'manly' while still sentimental, and it's definitely a cool idea.


Did You Know that Lonely Planet Makes Books for Kids?!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


One way to foster the love of travel for children is to a). travel (ha, of course!) and b). purchase engaging books for children to read about traveling. Lonely Planet has been our go-to when we are on the move for quite awhile. All of our trips to Europe have included a LP travel guide because they're super helpful, and spot-on with their suggestions for food, accommodations, sites to see, and more. I know many of you have heard of them as well, but did you know they have a line of books for children in this area as well? I did, but not to what extent, until now...

$50 Oriental Trading Gift Card #Giveaway!


MyCharge HubMini Portable Charger #Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


I know a lot of you are planning your summer travel destinations even as I type. We are doing the same over here. I always say the best souvenirs when you are traveling are the photos that you take! One of my grown children is going through different places in Europe right now, and one of the first things I asked him was if he had chargers and powerbanks ready to go, so his phone wouldn't die at important times (he takes his pictures with his iPhone). Of course, he's my son, so he already had that taken care of, atta' boy, kiddo! ;) One of the best chargers for travel is the MyCharge MiniHub portable, and let me tell you why...

Insurance 101 for the Modern Woman

  
Photo taken from my car window. That is the STREET! Flooding is everywhere.
Lots of people around here are glad they have the right insurance. It's always best to be prepared!
You work hard and play hard, and you need insurance to cover everything from your car to your home to your life. Do you really need that much coverage? Yes, you do, and bundling insurance often helps you save that much-needed dough for a cosmetic shopping spree in the end. Take into account the dangers of not carrying insurance, including an uninsured motorist ding on your driving record. Then, contact a professional to help you find the best coverage you can get, but wait! Do this first.
