Family Cruisin' In Style With The 2016 CX-9

When you have a bigger family, there's no reason you need to sacrifice a stylish vehicle to accommodate everyone. That's why I love the 2016 Mazda CX-9. It's a 7 passenger SUV with a third row for seating, making sure everyone is comfortable, yet the style of the SUV is so sleek and amazing!

When my husband and I pulled up to the grocery store, a woman commented how nice it was and wanted to know what exactly it was so she could check it out and look into it! It certainly doesn't scream boring family SUV, it screams style and comfort!

It was pretty good on gas mileage, getting 27mpg on the highway. It was very comfortable to drive and the inside was well lit while driving, I could see the gauges clearly and it gave it a "cozy" feel.

The interior was unlike any other vehicle I've driven, the color scheme was amazing! It really stood out, every time someone got in the car or looked inside they said the same thing "wow".

I loved how easy it was to navigate the controls for the radio, it's a touch screen and is positioned up on the dash as opposed to being lower where you're more likely to take your eyes off the road. Plus it had convenient volume control on the steering wheel.

With the third row seating, I wondered if it would take away from the trunk, but it didn't. There was plenty of room for my things when I went shopping and for my husbands work gear.

This is an amazing family vehicle, full of room and convenience as well as being good on gas!

Keeping Memories With

There are many ways that we decorate our home to remind us of friends & family. Our loved ones are very important to us, and it's apparent when you walk in our homes when you see photos on the walls. I love the idea of creating a unique way to decorate your home with pictures of your loved ones. offers you just that! With gifts and custom products, you can see all of the great things that they offer here.

I had the opportunity to create a gift for my dad and I gave it to him for Christmas. He loved it! Here's what I created:

I love that I could put several photos on one canvas and I could make each picture bigger/smaller to show certain photos in a different way. The bottom left is one of everyones favorites of Bailey with sunglasses on, so I wanted to make sure that picture was one of the bigger ones. It was a lot of fun to create and extremely easy. The website is easy to navigate and I created this quickly.

Since this was a gift for my dad, I was happy that I could put personal photos of everyone to create one hangable canvas. They have a great gift guide that you can view to create unique and loving gifts for the next birthday or occasion you need a gift. Of course, you can also buy one for yourself :)

You can choose from more than a canvas print. They offer blankets, pillows and more! There's a wide variety so you're sure to find something that you or your loved one will like.

Stay Warm With Healthy Blount Organic Soup

It's the time of year where we all like to stay warm and, if you're anything like me, that includes cuddling up with a nice hot cup/bowl of soup. Many people have New Year's resolutions of eating healthier, but don't want to change their lifestyle. I can say that I enjoy cozying up with a blanket on the couch and eating hot soup for lunch while watching a movie. We had 3 inches of snow here over the weekend so this was a perfect time for me to try some healthy organic Blount Soup. It was so good I had to tell you guys about it!

Before I get into all the ways this soup is good for you, let's visualize the yumminess on this cold day! Here is my soup!

There are 8 varieties of soup so you are sure to find a flavor that suits you. There are no artificial ingredients and everything in the soup is organic. The nice part is that I can enjoy healthy organic soup without having to make it from scratch all day in the kitchen. This gives me time to do other things instead, so that's a plus!

The Blount family has been in business since 1880 and are still bringing you and your family healthy foods today!

It's the New Year, so why not try some healthy (and yummy) soup for your family? Head over to their website for more info on the flavors, store locations where Blount soup is sold near you & other products!
