Don't Lose Your FSA Funds ~ Order Your Discount Contacts or Glasses Now!

 Thank you to for sponsoring this post!

As the year rounds itself out and is quickly coming to an end... it's important to make sure that you take full advantage of all of your health care benefits.  With many insurances, some  yearly benefits expire at the end of the year and you have to start over.  Nobody wants to "lose" any valuable savings or benefits, so now is the perfect time to double-check your coverage and spend those FSA funds.

You've spent the entire year saving money to help your cover out-of-pocket medical costs, so don't forget to use your FSA funds before year's end. Everything from prescription sunglasses to eyeglasses and even select eyewear accessories are covered under most FSA accounts.

If someone in our household wears glasses or contact lenses, start the New Year off with a fresh new look!  Now is the perfect time to take full advantage of your yearly health insurance benefits and utilize any available funds in your FSA!

Give Your Pooch the Gift of Fresh Kisses this Christmas

Do you give your pooches Christmas presents and treats?  This year, I suggest you give them the gift of Fresh Kisses!

I am fortunate enough to be a Chewy Influencer and in exchange for my honest reviews, my three spoiled furry children get special food and treats, delivered right to our door, every month!  Zena (English Mastiff), Thor (Great Dane/Mastiff), and Hercules (Neapolitan/English Mastiff) are some really lucky dogs!  When they see the blue box being delivered, it's almost like they know it's for them!

Just in time for the holidays --- Zena, Thor, and Hercules got to try Merrick Fresh Kisses double-brush dental dog treats that are infused  with a special blend of coconut, peppermint, lemongrass and rosemary oils!  They smell great and all three dogs LOVE them!  Honestly, I'm not sure which one enjoys them more - but they are always asking for seconds!


Enjoy sweet kisses from your pup this holiday season with Fresh Kisses holiday mint dental dog treats! These unique, brush-shaped chews are the perfect way for your pal to welcome guests this holiday season—with fresh-smelling kisses that won't put him on the naughty list. The special blend of coconut, peppermint, lemongrass and rosemary oils will help keep his breath smelling fresh, while the double-brush design helps to fight plaque and tartar. These tasty treats are designed to be easily digestible, with natural peas, tapioca and gelatin.

National Geographic Kids Weird But True! Books Will Fill Your Kids With Interesting, Fun Facts (Holiday Gift Guide Giveaway)

I think it's safe to say that we are all a little bit weird... some of us weirder than others!  Am I right?  Here’s a very weird, but completely true fact... 99% of people can’t lick their elbows — but 90% of people who read this will try!  

As a matter of fact, when I read that to my daughter, son, and my son's girlfriend... all 3 of them tried - and failed!  That is one of the reasons why I love the National Geographic Kids Weird But True! books so much.  These books make kids (kids of all ages - including adults) think, try something weird, and they learn something new!  Plus, they are learning --- and that's a win at any age!


Entertaining and brain bending facts like that, coupled with visually stunning and eye popping photos and graphics, are the reason why the 35+ titles in the National Geographic Kids Weird But True! book franchise are considered the gold standard in educational, entertaining books for kids.  With over 5 million copies sold, published in over 15 different languages, and featuring a broad range of topics from science to food to pop culture, Weird But True! books nab kids’ attention and get them reading.  

I've always encouraged my children to look at books and read, even when they were toddlers.  Books let their imaginations run free and take them to places unknown.  Books also fill their minds with knowledge and facts that will fuel them for life!

Did you know that Virga is rain that evaporates before it hits the ground, that plants can get fevers, or that the average tornado is only on the ground for 5 minutes?  These are just a few of the Weird But True! facts that you and your kids can read about!

Now, with the release of the 10th book in the Weird But True! main series, things just got WEIRDER and it’s time to celebrate!
