How do you prefer to celebrate your birthday? I heard after you turn 25, birthdays only go downhill from there? Well not for this girl. I am now 26 and thriving- feeling like the best is yet to come. I always find a reason to celebrate an occasion especially the day of my birth. You don’t get years back so why be down on your age? I understand that birthdays can be a touchy subject, depending who you’re talking to. Everyone has their own rhyme and reason.
I will be spending my birthday surrounded by friends and family this year- which is my favorite way to spend it. We typically go out to eat, have cake and celebrate!
I would love to hear from you, are you the type that celebrates or do you skip it? I’d love to know your favorite way to celebrate your birthday!

We are halfway to the weekend and I am so ready to unwind. Do you live for the weekends like me? I think I look forward to the weekend when Monday morning arrives, ha! This weekend I could not be more excited to relax and sip on some coffee featuring my new favorite creamers.
Are you a coffee lover? Do you like to add a little sweetness to your coffee? Well, guess what, Coffee-mate® Creamers just came out with 3 new dessert-inspired flavors at Walmart and I am obsessed. Oh my yum. One thing you should know about me, and if you don’t, now you’ll know… I LOVE to shop whether that be for groceries, clothes, or basics, and Walmart is one my go-to places. They have affordable prices, variety and all the goods that make them a one-stop shop for any needs on your list. And they happen to carry the aforementioned creamers, too.
Coffee-mate® Creamers just released a line of Dessert Creamers in Coconut Caramel Latte creamer, Toasted Marshmallow Mocha, and Cookies & Cream flavors. Talk about melting in your mouth! I may be a rare breed but I am not a “black coffee” type gal–give me all the sweets to add to my morning coffee and I’ll be happy! You can head to your local Walmart and purchase one of these 3 scrumptious flavors, heck get all three! You can find them in the dairy section. Oh! And be sure to look for the Coffee-mate in-store sampling event happening May 10-13th, too.
If I could describe each of these Coffee-mate® Creamers in one word…
Coconut Caramel Latte- Devine This one instantly turns your simple, at-home coffee into a trendy and expensive-tasting latte. The coconut and caramel are the perfect compliment to each other. And the flavors kind of remind me of my favorite Girl Scout cookie.
Toasted Marshmallow Mocha- Savory This creamer reminds me of summer nights by the firepit. It is the perfect amount of sweet!
Cookies & Cream- Delectable Like ice-cream in your coffee–I just can’t get enough of this flavor! This one might be my favorite.
My weekend morning routine consists of this gal waking up to the fresh smell of the coffee pot going- thanks to Andrew. When I smell that, my feet are on the ground and I am up, and now that I have Coffee-mate® Creamers at the tip of my fingers, I get even more excited to wake up!
I choose to start my weekend on a positive note by creating “me time.” Whether that is reading a book (I honestly had to start my book over because it has been so long since I have picked it up), scrolling through social media (my guilty pleasure), or simply taking a deep breath by looking out the window, I find time to do one of those many things with my coffee in hand.
I am a huge advocate for creating “me time” I sometimes am the WORST at making that time for myself but when I do, boy do I love it. Balance is key on the weekends for me. That consists of just enough coffee to get my day started!
Is it just me or are all these colors and images on the packaging an eye-catcher? The packaging just makes my mouth water…
One thing I am excited about is to try these is in my iced coffee when the weather gets warmer here in KC. It really has not felt like Spring here, which is super disappointing.
Head to your nearest Walmart location to purchase the newest creamers added to the Coffee-mate® Creamers family. And head here for even more inspiration and details about the new Coffee-mate Dessert Creamers!
Who knew brushing your teeth could be so much fun? Especially when you have matching ones from Quip! Did you know most people don’t take care of their teeth properly? You either brush too hard, unevenly, not long enough or don’t brush often enough!
I actually think my dental hygiene got better after dating Andrew no lie. He is ALWAYS brushing his teeth so I had to step up my game LOL.
Quip has different options on the color choice which I really like, I can’t tell you how many times I have forgotten which toothbrush was mine because we had the same colors… I chose the copper metal and Andrew chose the slate metal color. One thing I really like is the nifty dual-use cover that comes with them (not the plastic tube the base that it is in) which makes traveling with your electric toothbrush easier.
Did you know that you should brush your teeth for 2 minutes at a time? The Quip has sensitive vibrations that use a built-in timer to pulse every 30 seconds and turn off after 2 minutes, helping guide a full and even clean.
How cool, you can mount the case to your mirror at home using a micro-suction strip! The subscription actually delivers new tubes of toothpaste as well when you run out.
Quip has made our life easier instead of running to the store every so often to go pick up new toothbrushes we get new brush heads delivered right to our door!
Dentist recommends that you change your bristles after 3 months because bristles become worn out and ineffective at cleaning. Why not pay $5 with free shipping for your bristles to be automatically refreshed.
Where has the last 2 years gone? Happy Birthday Luther Nash. Becoming a dog mom I have learned so much and gained such a great responsibility.
Andrew and I are in disbelief that this dude once was the size of our forearm. We have watched several home videos of the moments we have documented and are pinching ourselves on how fast time has gone by.
Of course we spoiled him with a peanut butter cake from Three Dog’s Bakery.Yes I know the 2 is backwards but running from the tripod and picking up the prop I was not prepared! LOL
I know I have said it probably way to much, but we got so lucky with Luther. He is seriously practically perfect- well no one/ dog is perfect but I have no complaints. Okay well maybe his breath sometimes and his barking but goodness- he’s so CUTE. Drew claims I love Luther more than him… and I just say “It is a different type of love.” Am I right? haha
Can I admit something- for the entire year up until a couple days when he turned one I thought his birthday was February 21… then I started looking through emails with his breeder and realized it was the 22! THE ENTIRE TIME WE HAD HIM I THOUGHT IT WAS THE 21st…for the first year NOPE the 22nd LOL! Dog mom of the year 😉
Happy Birthday Luther Nash- Thanks for making me a dog mom and responsible human being.
