Give Back and Celebrate National Lemonade Day at Red Robin {Giveaway}



It’s always great when a company that you love does good. It makes me love them even more! To celebrate National Lemonade Day, Red Robin is turning lemons into Freckled Lemonade and celebrating the national holiday and honoring the beloved summertime drink by giving back!

National Lemonade Day is August 20th and participating Red Robin restaurants across the U.S. will host lemonade stands, serve Freckled Lemonade samples to guests and collect donations to support Red Robin’s national charity partner, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Freckled Lemonade

Freckled Lemonade is one of my favorite drinks to get from Red Robin! If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a a blend of sweet strawberries and tangy Minute Maid® Lemonade with free bottomless refills. It’s been Red Robin’s signature drink for over 20 years and I think it’s the perfect drink to honor National Lemonade Day.

Head to Red Robin on August 20th for National Lemonade Day and donate $5 or more and you will receive a yellow bracelet to show your support for Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation.

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation emerged from the front yard lemonade stand of cancer patient Alexandra “Alex” Scott (1996-2004). In 2000, 4-year-old Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement dedicated to finding cures for all childhood cancers, complete with thousands of supporters across the country carrying on her legacy of hope. To date, Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $80 million toward fulfilling Alex’s dream of finding a cure, funding over 450 pediatric cancer research projects nationally.

Taking the Febreze #Noseblind Test + Febreze Prize Pack Giveaway



Have you ever gone on vacation and then came back to your clean home wondering what that smell was? There are many times that this has happened to us and I’ve realized that whoops – my house is what smells! Sometimes you can become noseblind and accustomed to what your house smells like. YOU don’t think there is a smell, but your guests sure do! Even though I know I’m noseblind in my house, I am pretty sure what it smells like….our dog and our kids – specifically the diapers of two toddlers. 

You know those Febreze commercials where they blindfold strangers and they say how good it smells even though they are surrounded by disgusting stuff? Well, we conducted a mini Febreze #Noseblind test in our house. We had a few family members over for a fun movie night but before we got settled in, I asked them to fill out a survey about how our house smelled – no one was allowed to share their answers with each other. 


 Then I popped 3 bags of popcorn for us all to enjoy as we watched our movie {The Lego Movie, if you’re wondering}. We settled in…but then I had everyone get out their phones to take one more survey before we enjoyed our snacks and the movie. Then, I lit the Meadows & Rain Candle, sprayed some Febreze into the air and thus the Febreze #Noseblind Test began!

Febreeze #NoseBlind Test

One of my favorite things about Febreze is how fast it starts working. Pretty instantly, we smelled the fresh scent of the Meadows & Rain Febreze. We couldn’t even smell the popcorn scent in the air anymore. After the movie was over, everyone filled out the final survey. 

I got them to admit that sure enough my house smelled like our dog. Yup, I had a confirmed case of noseblindness. Because I sure didn’t smell that.

Don’t worry though – we all suffer from some sort of noseblindness. Noseblindess is a nasal condition where you become accustomed to the odors around you over a period of time.  That’s all thanks to the the human olfactory system which evolved to help the brain categorize and prioritize different chemical signals from receptors in our nose. 

But wait! You don’t have to become noseblind to all the not so pleasant odors in your house. Luckily, Febreze contains a molecule known as Cyclodextrin that traps and eliminates bad odors. Now I know that I can spray Febreze throughout my house and be assured that it’s eliminating any smell that is there! 


Head over to Noseblind.com to learn more behind the science, the symptoms and the treatment – there is a cure and that cure is called Febreze! You can also connect with Febreze socially by liking them on Facebook and following on Twitter.

Win It!

Enter to win a Febreze Prize Pack that includes: 1 Febreze Air Effects, 1 Febreze Fabric Refresher, 1 Febreze Noticeables with refill, 1 Febreze Candle and a $60 AmEx Gift Card.

Cabo Beach Cheeseburger + Walmart Gift Card Giveaway #CookingUpGood



About 4 years ago, I had the best burger of my life. My family was on vacation to Gulf Shores, Alabama and while my Mom watched our son my husband and I enjoyed a Date Night. I don’t know if it was the combination of the good company of my husband, the gorgeous view below or the giddiness of being child free, but I’ll never forget that burger…until now!

I was intrigued to try the Cabo Beach Cheeseburger, which is just bursting with flavor!
