Weekly Love Letters- Week 18

Hayden loves to wear button down shirts. Its just something he loves. Sometimes I think its so he can look grown up like his father, but I’m not sure. Yesterday, he picked up his first shirt of the school year and walked over to me to make sure that he had buttoned it right and he matched. He looks so cute and I love that he wants his mom’s opinion before going to school. Doesn’t my little boy look super spify?

Here is this week’s installment of the Weekly Love Letters.

Enjoy a great meal with BoneFish Grill #HelloNewMenu

I was given a gift pack from BoneFish Grill to review the newest menu items at the restaurant. No other compensation was given. All opinions are my own.

My husband and I rarely get time to ourselves and its not because people aren’t offering to watch our kids.. its just because we just don’t go out often. So we finally took some time to ourselves and went out to dinner while the boys were with their grandparents. But, what to eat? We both love fish so BoneFish Grill is a great choice for us.

BoneFish Grill

We were sent a gift box from BoneFish Grill with some awesome goodies it in. The new menu was the first thing we took a look at. The watermelon salad was the first thing I saw. YUM! They also added some bowls (like the Spicy Tuna bowl) and wood-grilled Fish. I’ve never had Ahi Tuna Steak but doesn’t that sound delicious? And the newest dessert: S’mores flatbread. Creamy chocolate, toasted marshmallow + sliced almonds, sprinkled with graham cracker crumbs.  So we headed there and poured over the menu to see what we wanted to order.

I ordered the Spinach bacon salmon w/ garlic potatoes and veggies. OMG the most delicious meal I’ve had in a long time. The salmon blended well with the spinach and bacon… and yum bacon! Who doesn’t like bacon? It was a great choice for me and even my husband tasted it and enjoyed it. My husband ordered the Swordfish with Mango salsa, couscous and mixed veggies. I liked the swordfish but I liked my salmon better. He loved the swordfish though. The couscous was cooked to perfection. I wished I would have ordered it myself.  I also want to point out that I ordered the fresh blackberry splash which is a spirit-less drink. It had fresh blackberries in it (duh) with coconut water and seltzer water and it was so tasty.

BoneFish Grill

Head to BoneFish Grill to try their new menu and enjoy yourself. I know you will love it as much as my husband and I did.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Renewing my hair with Shea Moisture

I was sent some samples of Shea Moisture products for this review. No other compensation was received. All opinions below are my own.

I’ve been on my natural hair journey for almost 3 years. What I’ve realized more recently is that the reason I wasn’t getting the growth I wanted was because of one thing: over manipulation. Instead of protective styling, I’d change my hair every other day.. Or just apply heat. As most people know, that isn’t great for my 4B hair.

Weekly Love Letters- week 17

Weekly Love Letters

This week happens to be the first week of school. The reason I didn’t post the Weekly Love Letters yesterday was because today is Noah’s first day at Preschool… I wanted to include 2 pictures this week. One is of Hayden’s first day of the Second grade and the other is Noah’s first day of half day Preschool. I’m so proud of both of my boys. They both are super excited to be in school and I can’t blame them.

Staying organized with DotMine Day Planners

DotMine Day Planner

I was sent a DotMine Planner to use, review and enjoy. No other compensation was given. All opinions are my own.

I’ve been using DotMine Day Planners for while before the stopped making planners. I was heartbroken. I’ve always used planners but these were the first ones that I loved and used the longest. Earlier this year, I was excited when I received an e-mail saying they are coming back! The same planners I loved were available for pre-order for the 2014-15 planners. So I of course put in an order when I got the chance.

Be a Hunger Hero with Sam’s Club and Champions for Kids

Hunger Heroes

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. All opinions are my own.

Did you know that 16 million American children live in poverty? Its a big number to swallow. Some of these kids don’t have access to nutritious meals that will help them thrive and succeed both academically and socially. Some communities are making strides to help the situation: Here in Columbus, Columbus Public School have made both breakfast and lunch free for all families. I’m always looking for opportunities to give and am thankful to hear about Champions for Kids.

I love the core values of Champions for Kids: All children should have: Someone who cares; a Place to belong; Hope for tomorrow and provisions for their journey. All children. They believe that helping others doesn’t have to come in large doses. They seek to foster a “habit of giving” among youth and their parents in America. This is why I’m challenging all my followers to be Hunger Heroes!
