Ok what better way to spend a summer evening than to be invited to a #PDQshakesocial and help PDQ choose their new shakes for 2017 ! I want to share with you my evening but before I do I just have to share here a sample of PDQ's gardening right here outside. I love it. I notice the gardening around most places like this maybe more so than the average dinner goer in a hurry because I am in love with summer & flowers of summer. I really do like to stop & smell the roses. I think PDQ does an outstanding job in their landscaping. It is truly inviting.
Now let's go inside to the party. If your ever looking a spacious party room for a casual gathering you really should try PDQ.
I walked in to colorful balloons filling the room. I loved the festive bright summer colors. It sets the pace for FUN.
Hillary Hahmann always sets a great table for us partners. We had a cute summer time cup to take home filled with swag coupons. They even let me take an extra one home to try and when over a family member with who has YET to try PDQ and shame on them. I hope after that cute cup & coupons they just can't resist the place. I love the fact PDQ actually stands for People Dedicated to Quality. Every experience I have ever had this year with PDQ has proven to me they really do dedicate to quality. I go here now when not at a party as a customer and I see them with the same excitement, smiles & tender loving customer care I see the nights of the gatherings, not to mention quality food. It all around just seems to be a better option to me than ANY other eat out place do to the food freshness, quality & the caliber of people that seem to really love their job. It is just a great family friendly atmosphere. I have to say my 21 year old son has been a life long Chick Fil A fan and still loves them BUT he told me a month ago his favorite fast food eatery is now PDQ and told me the reasons why. It takes a lot to sway my son. PDQ did it.
I was happy to discover this time they have grilled chicken tenders. I really did not realize that the last few times I had tenders here. I was so happy about this healthier option! I also just had to have some more of the zucchini fries. Prior to the meal they had us do the sauce tasting too with fries & I discovered 2 new homemade sauces I loved. So happy they make their own sauce fresh!
Now on to the judging. We got to help in judging 11 shakes. They will use the information to pick the seasonal shakes for the up coming year 2017! This was exciting to be a part of. And of course my sweet tooth was happy. I am not going to dive into the shake information here you'll have to make sure to visit your local PDQ in 2017 ( don't wait visit now too LOL) to see what shakes are new in the line up. But let me tell ya........ what a fun job this tasting was. My kids came along and assisted gladly. I had fun doing this and networking with others. It was fun meeting others in the community & laughing together.
Here are the 3 lovely ladies who made the tasting a success, Brittney Turner the Raleigh Marketing & Catering Coordinator, Chas the lady who shook ALL the shakes for us, & Hillary Hahmann The Carolinas Marketing Manager.
Thanks Hillary for the invite and keep up the great work PDQ!
I saw some pretty towels at the Dollar Tree. I thought I would love to sew a craft out of them. I wanted a cute little summer throw backpack for a few light things like a water bottle, a book & sunglasses. These Dollar Tree microfiber towels are thick & cute just the right ones for this.
Make sure you get the thicker wider ribbon. This bag I have tested with a water bottle, light book, sunglasses and a few more things it holds well! This is the perfect summer bag to grab & go to sit by the pool. You could use this for so many other things too like transporting a knitting project & such.
Every one ages. Everyone. I think some people probably think they do not but it is a reality of life. I am determined to age gracefully & beautifully as I can. But that does not mean just not caring about my skin. I care a great deal about what I use these days on my skin. I wish I cared years ago. I did not fully realize the reality that the skin is the biggest organ of the body. It is literally like a sponge. It needs tender loving care & natural nonharmful serums & creams to apply.
My shipment came in a timely manner which was impressive. I have not had a good ordeal lately with getting items from other companies. There was no fancy presentation for the products once I opened the box. But I will say the boxes them selves the skin serums are in are quite nice. I love the information on them, the feel & color.
Matrixyl S6 is a power peptide that they get naturally. Peptides are chains of amino acids that are the building blocks of proteins in the skin for maintaining a youthfulness. Here is what Timeless has to say about Matrixyl S6, hyaluronic acid & vitamins c,e & ferulic acid.
matrixyl synthe'6 serum
Our Matrixyl S6 Serum contains Matrixyl® Synthe'6®, a powerful peptide that boosts six skin-rebuilding essentials. This anti-wrinkle complex helps reverse the signs of aging by stimulating six major constituents of the skin matrix and dermal-epidermal junction (collagen I, II, IV, fibronectin, hyaluronic acid and lamin 5). Evens out skin and smoothes wrinkles from the inside by rebuilding the skin where it is needed, particularly on the forehead and crow's feet.
hyaluronic acid - one of the most powerful hydrating and moisturizing ingredients on the market today. Holds up to 1000 times its weight in water. This serum contains 1% HA
20% vitamin c + e ferulic acid serum
Contains Vitamin C, an antioxidant that evens skin tone and helps build collagen. Also contains vitamin E and Ferulic Acid, used to extend the life and effectiveness of vitamin C. We use a 20% concentration of L-ascorbic acid for maximum benefit. Our product is guaranteed fresh and effective for 3 months.
Here my bullet points on my discoveries of these two anti-aging products after just 2 weeks of using. I can not wait for 2 more weeks to see what else may result. I get so excited trying products that deliver results like this one.
So far these two anti-aging products have wowed me.
This is what 41 looks like naturally.

Hebrews 1:14New International Version (NIV) 14 Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?
I was about 3 years old on my way home from up state NY with my mom and dad. This was back in the days when you could ride without seat belts. I was in the back of a pick up truck sitting on a little seat that was not a proper truck seat because it was in a truck bed. With one of those fiber class covers on the back of the truck you would see in the 70's -80's a lot. There was also a LOT of glass bottles in boxes they were bringing back from NY to NC to collect cash on. Well I was so very young and so very little. I was very petite. Somewhere in PA I think it was they had a severe accident. My mother was pregnant with my little brother at the time. She was rushed to the hospital. I heard her yelling somehow or talking and she did not want to leave until they found my body. She was in very bad shape and had to leave. Now to get to my point.... I will now recount the events from my perspective as a toddler below!
I was having a good time keeping myself content as a little toddler could be playing with my little fake purse and the goodies it contained. I loved little tiny things to play with and a paper & pen. I was busy when all of the sudden I heard yelling and the most awful noises I had ever heard in my tiny life... I didn't know what the noises was I had never heard it all before but the moment I began to hear them I saw the truck bed moving in a direction I knew it was NOT to move and all the glass coming for me. I was in an instant more sacred than I had ever been so far in my young little life.... but in an instant I saw a flash of large light consume me. I couldn't see a thing but that bright bright blinding light. At first it startled me. It picked me up and threw me into darkness, the light was gone. This light was so amazing and I felt the most wonderful love, safety and comfort I had felt since the womb (If you did not read that story of what I remember life to be like in the womb please read it here.) It felt so familiar like I knew this light somehow.
Psalm 91:11New International Version (NIV) 11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
It was all so very very fast. I screamed mommy!! MOMMY I want my mommy as it was holding me. The voice I call it came while I was in the darkness. "You are safe" it said. I spoke into the dark who are you. It said " stay here, your safe" I said where am I (this place felt so tight). It said " I placed you in safety until they find you" I said ok Mr. I said what happen I am scared why do they need to find me? He said " a bad accident happen but you are safe " I said will they find me Mr. He said yes very soon. Do not be scared. I heard this voice talk to me while I was in the dark and it all happen so fast. I said I hurt Mr. I hurt. Why am I in a ball. He was gone.
He would not answer me I got scared. I realized as I had been talking to him it was not with my mouth somehow we spoke without words with our mind. So I began to cry with my mouth and I mean really cry! I cried and cried..... amidst my cries I heard all sorts of sounds on "the outside what ever that was" I heard loud crunches and crashes. I heard men voices. I heard yelling. I heard a woman's voice. None of these voices sounded like my mom or dad. I was so very scared so it made me cry all the more & louder. I realize now as an adult if I had not cried they would not of found me!! My cries so loud is how they found me. Suddenly I heard a voice say keep crying keep crying. I had no idea really that people was looking for me I had not fully in my young mind made that connection yet. I thought it was my bright light friend again but then I realized it was not his same comforting voice. But this voice said keep crying baby girl keep crying so we can find you! I didn't know I was in a wreck... my young toddler mind could not comprehend it. Every one was accounted for but me. The truck was totaled by a 18 wheeler. So I obey that strange voice and cried harder thinking I was doing good somehow. All the sudden a while later I felt a jult. I felt my body being tossed around. They had found me.... I was stuffed inside a large hard cased suitcase ( you know those from the 60-70-80's) laying safely inside on top of a pile of glass & twisted medal in the twisted up trunk bed.
One of the reasons they could not find me at first was when they looked in the rumble all they saw was metal, glass & luggage they did not know I was actually there some how in the suitcase. I had not started crying yet and they did not see my body. I had been upset the angel left me. But I realize as an adult now that had he not stopped talking to me to comfort me I would of never started to cry in fear. They wouldn't of found me in time. Because my mom's life was hanging on a thread and she wouldn't leave in the ambulance till she heard word I was alive. SO they thought I was gone somehow under it all. The angel I now know is whom I was speaking to when I saw a bright light consume me and pick me up and throw me in the dark place "the suit case" in an instant saved my life. I would of been chopped liver had he not done that for me. I remember even some of what the rescuers was saying.... O my God we found her she is here she is here and I heard loud cheers of lots of people. I heard my dads voice saying that is impossible. That suitcase was full and locked with a key.No one could explain what happen and how I got there but I knew. I tried to baby babel in my tears a nice man in light put me there. But I do not think anyone believed me. There was no time for me to of unlocked it and crawled in. I didn't even have the key and as a toddler not even realized it was locked or how to unlock one in the instant of a high speed wreck. I remember when the man in a suit of some sorts ( later I realized as I aged it was an EMT man.) opened the suit case and I saw the day light for that first time in what seemed forever. I knew something big somehow had just happen. He hugged me and said hey little girl your going to be ok. He climbed out with me as I heard some cheering. He handed me to my dad... I cried but my dad quickly handed me to a strange lady as he ran away saying take care of her.... he ran to the ambulance my mom refused to leave in her major condition till they found me alive. He said take her go go go go now,,,and I was crying for my mommy and wanted to see her. They said I had no time mommy had to go she had no time. I had no idea if I would ever see her again at that moment. I was then left with the strange lady for what seemed like a very long time until my Dad came back for me. I remember my auntie came up from hours away to take me home as my Dad stayed on with my mom. That is all I remember about the wreck. I felt honored to remember such detail at such a young age of this amazing event. TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!!!!! I can no longer sit silent holding these memories & experiences to myself. It is time to use them to recount the God things of God and bring him Glory!
I thought it would be fun to explore the benefits that ordinary houseplants hold for us humans. God created them all for a reason. I am super excited to share some of my findings with you today. Personally I love their bright presence in my home. Houseplants are just awesome.
Welcome readers to my second Tours of Home installment! I am so excited about today's house tour. It is of a fellow Homeschoolers house here in my fine state of North Carolina. She has such a talent for nesting her home for maximum coziness that I admire. Please welcome Sherry from ThriftMyHouse.
Her front door area is open & inviting as you enter. You see a lot of natural light dancing on the floor. Love it. I love her white door by the way it used to be stained. When she painted it white it made it look so fresh and made the impact of a bigger looking room I think!
Here is her sweet living room. I read her post recently on her Jute rug obsession and it is so cute. She shares all her new jute rugs in the house. My favorite one is in fact this one below in her living room. She really does think outside the box and makes it HERS. I would of never thought of layering a rug on top of a rug!
I just love this gallery wall. All the varieties of frames is delightful with reflections of their home life looking back at them daily!
Sherry used to have these curtains in her dinning room. But she wanted to use them in her bathroom area. So she cut the long curtains to fit her needs and made these fabulous no sew curtains! They work great in that space don't ya say?!
She really does Thrift her house. She even made this amazing sign for a Mothers Day gift from old baseboard that was laying around in her attic! Wow. Not a dime spent yet it simply is amazing and something you'd see for at least 20-30 dollars at a home store.
Welcome to Sherry's family laundry room where they tend so tidy to the needs of the family. And what better place to do it than this room! I love her fascination of numbers and how she has used them over the years from ornaments in her holiday flare to laundry room care! ( I made a little rhyme there)
She took an old armoire another part of her house and painted it white to place in her kids bed room. I think it looks so pretty & up to date with that cute little banner above it! I love the maps & countries pictures to. Just so amazing how it all ties together. Color simply pops and glows in all it's splendor more next to white!
Look at this dinning room wall. Packed with tons of sweet southern goodness I love the flow of it all.
In Sherry's Kitchen I love the way she took off only the cabinet around the sink's doors. Very nice way to display things. And look at her checkered flooring she actually replaced her floor for free! Look at her facet that is perfect with this floor. I think that floor goes well with her black & white & gray theme. It is beautiful! I really love the cabinets are not all white and she left the stain. It looks kinda vintage in there!
You have got to go by her site to see the before picture of her bed room. The transformation is amazing. I love this inviting room. It is such a peaceful looking relaxing place. Now look below at where she moved this white bench seat to!
Now instead of the bench seat she has this little bench at the foot of her bed she painted right up so cute after finding this sweet little bench for a $1.50!
Sherry had a hallway she wanted to redo that had nothing really going on in it. She really livened it up and tied it like a bow to match the rest of the house!
Here is a peek into her back yard garden. I love the Farmers Market sign she made with the mirror how cute. And the water hose wreath is darling. I love the pallet shelf too and it has inspired me to do some of my own!
Sherry thank you so much for allowing us a peek at your lovely home. It is so inviting & warm. I admire your uses of blacks & white & grays and really love the flow! You have tied the whole house in nicely together. I also admire the times you took things right from your own house and re-used them in a new way you really do thrift your own house and it has won my heart. I am forever a fan.
Ok at the Southern Womens Show in Raleigh this year I met the cutest couple. They are sweet as sugar. I think it might be why their business is called Two Lumps of Sugar? The love this couple shined through their communication with each other certainly gave due honor to the business name! Just to cute. And Denises husband was so very funny he should of been a comedian! Any how they ladened me with goodies to take home & review for you all.
I received the Trunkster Folding Storage Caddy, the Trunk Liner, & the Ruffle My Apron. First up for my review is the Ruffle My Apron. Oh my I get all vintage and giddy inside when I talk about aprons most certainly this one. Why you say? Well this apron is stain proof, & adjustable for any height women. It has ruffles.. hello!!!!!! It is the perfect addition to this little southern ladies kitchen. What is so funny as I was testing this apron, I cooked a meal while watching Andy Griffith Show and Aunt Bee came on screen wearing her apron, perfect timing. Wearing an apron is such a badge of honor to the homemaker. It is our uniform. It says mom is on the clock. I even have a small cleaning company I use my aprons for to home make for others. It is classic & classy yet all while doing it's duty of keeping you clean while you work. Aprons transcend time. I seriously believe the high quality of this apron even with years of use will provide the opportunity for this apron to be a family heir loom?!
My final thoughts on this apron. I can't get enough of it. I love it. The best apron I have reviewed to date. It is going to last for the long haul. This is far better than one you will find in the store I PROMISE!
Next up to make my job as a homemaker easier I got to review the Trunkster! A super large folding storage caddy for all sorts of goodies a lady must haul. You can use it for the market, the beach, picnic's what ever you can imagine the Trunkster is the caddy to do it with.
It came with a removable trunk liner that can hold your cold stuff. I love that it is removable because sometimes I may not need this. You can buy as many liners as you need and have 3 per caddy or just one. So versatile!
I also love the fact that the Trunkster is made from plastic bottles! How cool is that to take trash and turn it into new treasure!
We had a cookout coming up so I saw that as the perfect chance to try out my Trunkster at Walmart. It fit nicely into my cart.
The liner was so roomy to fit so many meats. I could of fit more than I needed to buy that day!
It held all my food I need to grab for the cookout in one bag. I was able to organize things into groups easily. I was so happy not to bring home a ton of plastic bags I would have to get rid of. This is so earth friendly y'all. Compartments are my thing and this has plenty of them for me!
Typically when I shop for so many things at once I would have to make trips back & forth from the car to the house with bags. Not with my Trunkster! I was able to lift it up & out alone on ONE trip! Wow.
The placement of the sturdy handles makes it easy to lift & carry. My shopping is now forever changed with this brilliant product!
I just have to award Two Lumps Of Sugar's products my Homemaker-Mom Seal of Approval. They have designed flawless products that I know I will enjoy for years to come. I love the fact they are business owners right here in Cary North Carolina too and I love to support small businesses so check them out on the web and start enjoying their products for yourself. These will in fact make super gifts!

With the cash back you can in the platform choose a charity you wish to give it too or use it for what ever else you may want. You can keep it for your own household needs.

Giving Assistant’s Cash Back Promise
When I tried it out on my purchases I really did earn money back & fast! See below my screen shot and I made 2 small purchases all under 60 bucks for both.

Ok turkey meat right now is so much cheaper in price than beef. Not to mention it is healthier. I love the Jennie O brand. I am so thankful to be a Switch Circle blogger for Jennie O and share with you the benefits of turkey! Today I am sharing with you a fast easy way to have a healthier tasty burger. I took Jennie O's pre- pattied burgers and added homemade taco seasoning. O boy does this burger have flavor.
If you do not want to use taco seasoning packets then you can make your own homemade. I am super impressed with how this recipe I found online came out. To make it healthier use organic seasonings or low sodium versions! All the ingredients are what most kitchens have on hand anyways! Super easy, just grab these items below and mix it up. Store in a dry sealed container for later use.

I recently tried the brand Tastea Blends from the Southern Women's Show in Raleigh NC to sample at home. I loved this simple light fruity (but not over baring) tea. The tea I was given was their White Grape loose leaf tea blend. I highly suggest this selection for your tea party. It has all the information you need to guaranTEA a great taste. I love the simple yet refreshing light taste of this tea. It is great warm or iced.
I absolutely love home. Home is the place we all lay our head. It is a place of comfort & refuge from the world. I love to see how other people decorate their space to bring peace & balance to their living areas & lives. I am starting this new series to showcase some home decor fabs that I simply love. Nesting at it's finest! I am so excited to share with you today Deserae from Peeking Thru The Sunflowers . She is my first featured home in my line of home tours to come. Her style reminds me of one of my favorite furniture stores & their displays. Restoration Hardware but with a flare!
First I have to point out Deserae lives in a cottage. It is so cute & the ideal looking cottage surrounded by natural beauty. I am gushing over that darling rose bush.
She has a koi fish pond that is absolutely stunning. I can just imagine taking a Spring walk around the yard hearing the gentle sound of the mini water falls. What a peaceful & serene setting.
The tiny touches outside the home are so lovely even the display of her extra pots add natural functional beauty.
I can tell Deserae makes great use of her natural light and playing up her windows. Look over in that corner to your left at the little built in cabinet! Wow how cute is that. I love the colors she choose for this living room but I also love that she left the little cabinet stained brown. It flows nicely with all the whites & grays. That couch looks so comfy cozy. It is awesome how she pulled of an eclectic elegant look even using some industrial elements like that coffee table!
Off to the side of her comfy living room she has an elegant romantic extra sitting area set apart to welcome guests she wants to dazzle. I love how it is all one room yet 2 rooms. She made the break well yet it all flows together amazingly. I am flipping over that rocking horse! Also notice down to the left hand side her collection of canes or maybe that is old umbrellas? What a great idea to display your collection in a bunch as part of your decor! I like how the color of her wood flooring is perfect for her colors of choice. It makes her grays,whites & earth tones pop in it's best array. Check out her blog to see her before's and afters of of her table & armor pieces she painted herself.
That seat is ready for some afternoon tea & chatting. I love that bright green fern that helps make a visually appealing room divider.
I love in that bathroom the sink skirt & the chalk board in the hallway. I really like how see displayed random beloved extras in the hallway as well.
Oh my I love that skinny little sink window with the charming chandelier. Her choice of curtains was perfect for that window. And that cheery little tree peeking out the window is so sweet.
I love white but I admire there is a balance of some other colors in this kitchen as well using earth tones. And just check out that cabinet hardware it is so pretty on display.
You don't think of the word cozy for a kitchen much but for this kitchen I have to say it sends the message of cute n cozy!
I love the various textures in this dinning room. The chairs look comfy & inviting for a great meal around the table. I love the glam splashes in the room. It is a little room with a big impact.
Thank you so much Deserae for the peek into your darling home. You have done an outstanding job nesting a peaceful space. I truly admire your style.
I love cooking with Jennie-O ground turkey meat. It is cheaper than beef and lower in fat. Now you can't beat that. Not to mention it tastes fantastic. You can use it for so many things. So recently I wanted to think up a new casserole for myself. Here it is my BBQ Turkey Casserole super simple. You can adjust this ever how you wish if you try it out. My son helped me test the taste out and loved this so much he wants me to make it again.
I am a proud Jennie-O Switch Circle Blogger. I was provided the Turkey Meat to cook with but all thoughts are my very own.
Be sure to get your Jennie-O coupons here.
Recently you saw I attended the Southern Women's Show. At the show I met a lot of fantastic vendors but there are a few that really stood out to me. They are the Mom -N-Pop vendors who really touched my heart as I got to know each one. I had promised a series of reviews displaying these vendors and their products of passion that makes them tick. I love made in the USA and love to support local business. It just thrills me to put my money back into my local community!
I am proud to introduce Horse O Peace Ranch. They make hand made soaps,balms,body butters etc. All natural to boot. The creator Elizabeth one day had the brilliant idea to use the extra raw goats milk at their family farm in something other than cheese. That is where the soap was born. It is all natural & organic goodness. I was given the chance to review a few product items in exchange for my honest review.
I would like to mention Elizabeth is the President of Horse O Peace Ranch and her husband who currently works in the IT filed is the VP. He hopes to someday soon retire from IT in hopes to continue in the family business with his beautiful hard working wife & four adorable kids. This really warms my heart. They are a true Mom- n- Pop business. The American dream is not dead yet!
This couple has a soap for nearly every type of skin issue. I was super impressed. I have been truly enjoying putting their products to the test. They have outstanding quality beyond many other homemade soaps I have seen.
I have not yet tried the Tea Tree Jojoba. I will be saving that for a review in a future shout out. Once all the Lavender is gone.
Unless another all natural soap company comes along that can out do Horse O Peace Ranch this soap company is now my favorite soap brand! I simply have to award the Homemaker-Mom Seal of approval! Keep up the great work Elizabeth & Nick I love your products!
Thank you for proving us with products of quality with no carcinogenics.
When I review, only the BEST products that I LOVE earn my Seal of Approval! View past reviews in my Product Review category
