The 2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid, Knows No Limits #DriveToyota

I’ll be honest, when I think of mid-size, SUVs or crossovers that can handle winter conditions here in Michigan, the word Hybrid has never crossed my mind, though the name Toyota sure has. I've had the pleasure of reviewing several vehicles from Toyota over the years, and they never disappoint. I just recently spent a week driving the 2017 Toyota Rav4 Hybrid, and it just so happen to be a week … [Read more...]

Himalayan Salt Lamp Review

It's no secret that I have been struggling with stress, insomnia and a little anxiety lately. Hence, my lack of blog updates. The thing is, I don't really have a reason to be feeling this way. My life is actually pretty amazing. Turns out what I have been feeling is all part of that lovely gift us women receive as we age, often in our late forties and early fifties. We are all about keeping … [Read more...]

Five Things We Love About The Toyota Sienna #DriveToyota

So fancy that Toyota calls the Sienna the "Swagger Wagon", but when I see it, I see a van. A nice, good-looking, modern van, but a van none the less. I've never been a big fan of minivans or vans. In-fact this was my second time ever driving one. Even though it would not be my choice for day-in and day-out, the 2016 Toyota Sienna has a lot of smart and amazing features. Some of which I was pretty … [Read more...]

DYNATRAP Natural Mosquito Trap Discount & Review

We love spending time outdoors. From spring through fall, we spend a lot of our days in our backyard, and evenings on our front porch. What we don't love are the bothersome bugs.

Thankfully DYNATRAP sent us The Original Insect Trap to review. The … [Read more...]

Top Mates Aussie Finishing Sauces, Meatball Recipe & Review

About Top Mates Aussie: Way, way back (in 2005), down under in Australia, a company was created to bring the first ever “Top” quality food partner for BBQ and other great meals with friends. Before this, only those boring old sauces and tired old relishes, chutneys and artificial jellies existed. The company, Top Mates (branded as Spoonfed Foods in Australia), became a quick success in Australia. … [Read more...]

Our 2016 Kia Sedona Review

I have never seen myself as the mini van type. To be honest, I really enjoy driving smaller, zippy cars. It's what I am use to. Though to be fair - there are mini vans, and then there are cool vans with a lot of storage and a long list of really nice features. With that being said, I recently had the opportunity to test drive the 2016 Kia Sedona SXL for an entire week. I'm not saying that I am … [Read more...]

Roasted Pork Loin Recipe & The Spice Lab Review

We try to cook most of our meals at home. It's more cost-efficient than going out, it's healthier, and we tend to spend more time together while in the kitchen, and around the table. Having a teenage daughter that is vegan can also limit our restaurant choices. We recently received the above group of products from The Spice Lab to review. Though, I haven't had the chance as of yet to try very … [Read more...]

Our New Gathering Place, Rosie O’ Grady’s #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

I must have driven past Rosie O' Grady's a dozen times or more since they opened. Thanks to surfing Restaurant.com, my family now has a new place to gather for some laughs and really good food. It was a beautiful evening, so we opted to sit outside. They have a rather large outdoor seating area with a covered, and lit patio, a tv, and a separate bar.

Everyone Gets What They Want @ Rosa Mexicana Resturante #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

We are a pretty easy going family. We agree on almost everything, except when it comes to dinner. Especially, when it comes to eating out. So, how do you satisfy four teens that can't make-up their minds on Mexican, or Italian, and two adults on a budget? You pull out a smartphone, check the Restaurant.com app, that's how!

The 2016 Toyota Avalon, A Family Sedan You Can Get Excited About #DriveToyota

When you think about family size sedans, the first thing that comes to mind is practical. The description doesn't exactly scream excitement.

With its combination of comfort, quality and performance, the 2016 Toyota Avalon is one of the most impressive cars on the market. I … [Read more...]

Lightspeed Outdoors Bahia Quick Shelter Review

We recently took a family vacation to Venice, Florida to celebrate spring break. It's been years since we spent time in such a sunny state. The last time we were there, our daughter was on the beach and got a pretty bad sun burn on the first day of the trip. Kind of putting a damper on the rest of her vacation. This year, we went prepared. We asked Lightspeed Outdoors for a Bahia Quick Shelter to … [Read more...]

Golden Chopsticks, an East Side Favorite #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

Chinese food has been a favorite of mine for years. Like most favorites, I tend to play it safe and stick to my usual restaurants when eating out.

We used the restaurant.com app, put in the theater address, and found a great deal for Golden Chopsticks, right … [Read more...]

Raita Yogurt Savory Dips, Review & Giveaway

I have never been one to be very adventurous when it comes to trying new food. I have my general favorites in Chinese, Polish, Italian and American dishes. I’ve traveled to many European cities and to Jamaica and have sampled the cuisine there and enjoyed much of it, although not all. But to say that I don’t care for Indian fare is an understatement. There was many a celebration at work where a … [Read more...]

A little something for everyone @ The Next Chapter Bookstore & Bistro #ReviewCrew @Restaurant_Com #sp

Our most recent Restaurant.Com find took us to downtown Northville, Michigan. A very charming town filled with old-fashioned street lamps, out door benches, and a nice collection of restaurants, and small shops. Tucked inside a small historic building we paid "The Next Chapter Bookstore and Bistro" a visit for brunch. From the outside this bookstore/bistro doesn't really look like much. Once … [Read more...]
