Enter to win a HomeRight Pro Electric paint Roller (US ENDS JULY 15)

Paint Like a Pro Sweepstakes

Sponsored by HomeRight Organized by Budget Earth

Looking for a way to make painting faster and cleaner? If so, we think you will love the HomeRight Pro Electric Paint Roller. With this innovative roller, you can apply one gallon of paint in less than 10 minutes, drastically cutting down on overall paint time. What this machine does is pump paint directly from the paint can into the roller interior container system, which allows you to pain without spilling or dripping any of the paint, allowing you paint a wall quickly without any mess. Any paint that isn't used is also pumped back into the paint container, making sure you don't waste any paint (something important since good paint isn't cheap). As well, the system comes with a roller keeper for storing wet rollers overnight, allowing you to quickly get started again the next morning. To learn more, check out Budget Earth's HomeRight Pro Electric Paint Roller Review. Want to win this awesome paint roller for your own home remodel project?

Get Fit with the New Jawbone UP2 & UP3 @BestBuy @Jawbone #ad

disclaimer:  The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free

Are you into health and fitness this year? Do you have a tracking device to make sure you're getting as much of a workout as your body needs? Best Buy is the destination for health and fitness products. I am sure you have heard of the Jawbone by now, but did you know they have the new Jawbone UP2 and UP3? These very good-looking fitness trackers are thinner and much more style-savvy. I really like the black since it would go with anything.  UP3 uses advanced sensors to track your true sleep stages—REM, Light, and Deep. Smart Coach is then able to give you suggestions to maximize your sleep and improve the quality of your days. There’s more to your heart health than beats per minute. The advanced bioimpedance sensors are able to automatically track your resting heart rate and use that information to help you take care of the most important organ in your body. How cool is that? The few differences between the UP2 and UP3 is that the 2 tracks activity, sleep, has a food log and smart coach. The 3 has more features such as ADVANCED activity tracking, ADVANCED sleep tracking, the food log and smart coach PLUS heart health. 

What a fantastic way to track your life even if you're not a true health nut. We all can do things to make small changes at a time to help our bodies. Taking more steps, watching what we eat and just being more active in general. If you're in the market for a fabulous looking fitness tracker, with many color choices, then head over to Best Buy and check out the Jawbone. The Jawbone starts at $99.99

3 Ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies #recipe

I made these 3 ingredient cookies that I just wasn't sure about until they came out of the oven! So rich and delicious in my opinion. My husband (who isn't a sweet eater so he's picky) and our son really liked them! I was so happy and I really do like them. A bit rich so I just take half at a time HA!

3 Ingredient peanut butter cookies

  • 1 CUP peanut butter or any nut butter ( I used natural peanut butter)
  • 1/3 CUP honey 
  • 1 Large egg
  • If you want to add nuts, raisins or chocolate chips you can (but don't have to)
Yes that's it. Now preheat your oven to 350 degrees
Mix all ingredients
I put over a spoon-full of mixture each out on parchment paper. You can do the criss cross design, but I didn't...
Bake 10-15 minutes
Be sure you watch them. I cooked a bit longer and watched for the browning to start on the sides and then took them out
They will be super soft.. don't take them off until you let them cool for about 15 minutes.
I did add slivered almond and milk chocolate chips to can add extras if you choose, although not mandatory.

Mexican style Sweet potato Casserole #recipe

-this delicious recipe was adapted from

Oh yes, I am always looking for healthy recipes. Found this one on the Internet and wanted to give it a try. I made it last night and all 3 of us really enjoyed it. I did make a few changes so I'll put the recipe below and you can adjust as needed/wanted. Enjoy!

**please keep in mind that I made this for a family of 3 so if you need more, adjust accordingly!**

  • 1 LARGE sweet potato (peeled and grated like you would cheese)
  • 1 CUP whole wheat elbow macaroni (cooked)
  • 1 CAN black beans (no or low sodium, rinsed)
  • 5 STALKS of raw asparagus (just rough chopped in one inch pieces) 
  • 1 CUP salsa (homemade or store bought is fine)
  • 1 CUP of cheese (I used cheddar and mozzarella) just to top with..
  • Sour cream and avocado to top with (optional of course) 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grate sweet potato
Mix together cooked pasta, beans, asparagus, salsa and sweet potato
Spread into a large glass pan (I used a 13x9 )
Top with cheese
Put in oven for 40 minutes!
Let cool a bit and top with sour cream and avocado like we did, or not... and Enjoy!!! This really was SOOOO good!
