Galentine’s Celebration with Grove Collaborative

What is Galentine’s day? It’s a day for celebrating the amazing women in your life — starting with yourself!

My friends at Grove Collaborative have put together this free Personal Care Kit to help you do just that. Grab your free bundle of Mrs. Meyer’s body wash and lotion + Grove loofah + free shipping and 60 day VIP trial [Click Here]. (If you’re already a customer, you’ll receive a free Grove lip balm. Um… yes, please!)

Of course, Galentine’s day wouldn’t be complete without your friends. Make sure they get their free Personal Care Kit from Grove by sharing this offer with them.  

Then, check out my Galentine’s day calendar for little ways to celebrate yourself this week:

Day 1: What could be more relaxing than a hot bath? Run warm water, add a handful of flower petals, and a squirt of Mrs. Meyer’s body wash for a luxurious soak. You can’t go wrong with any of the Mrs. Meyer’s scents, but I chose lemon verbena because it reminds me of a spa.

Day 2: You deserve to use the best products for yourself! Even something as simple as a new loofah can make your shower routine feel special. This one from Grove is so soft and fluffy!

Day 3: Has dry winter air sapped all the moisture from your skin? Mrs. Meyer’s body lotion is filled with hydrating ingredients like shea butter and olive oil to leave your skin deeply nourished.

Day 4: Even if you don’t have time to hit the salon, you can give yourself a salon-worthy manicure at home. After you file and polish, follow up with Mrs. Meyer’s luscious hand lotion.

Day 5: My mom taught me that there’s nothing more beautiful than a smile! For a smooth pout, combine equal parts sugar and Grove skin superfood coconut oil and gently rub into lips to exfoliate. Then slather on Grove lip balm to lock in moisture.

Day 6: Skip the take-out and whip up a healthy, delicious new recipe. Don’t worry about dishes afterwards — toss them in the sink to soak with a dollop of Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap. It contains lauramine oxide, a plant-derived ingredient that powers through grease.

Day 7: It’s easy to feel like you don’t have time for self-care. One way to make more time for yourself is to use a subscription service like Grove Collaborative. Grove delivers your favorite natural household and personal products to your doorstep, on your schedule.

Bonus tip: Once you’ve submitted your Grove order, you’ll be signed up for the free 60 day VIP trial. Grove really pampers their VIPs with free shipping, free gifts, price matching, exclusive sales and personal service.

Recipe: Gameday Pulled Pork Sliders

This site contains affiliate links. Please see Policies for more information.

The big game is coming! If you need to put something together quickly, these are so perfect. My guys love it when I surprise them with this, which makes me so happy, because they are so effortless! These are perfect for feeding a hungry crowd on gameday and they work perfectly for those nights you don’t have a lot of time to cook. These BBQ Pulled Pork Sliders are so easy to throw together! These sliders are always a hit with the whole family!


1 – Package of PreCooked pulled pork (we love the Jack Daniels Pulled Pork)

(the Jack Daniels Pulled Pork is already flavored with Tennessee whiskey BBQ sauce)

1 – If you need to add BBQ sauce, Sweet Baby Ray’s is amazing!

1/2 Cup – shredded Cheddar Cheese

1 Package of Hawaiian Rolls


Cook the pulled pork according to directions.

Combine pulled pork with BBQ sauce if necessary.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place 1/2 of Hawaiian Rolls in glass baking dish.

Spoon BBQ Pulled Pork on top of rolls.

Sprinkle shredded cheddar cheese over the pork. If 1/2 cup isn’t enough, feel free to go crazy and add more!

Place the other 1/2 of Hawaiian Rolls on top.

Bake for seven minutes (or until cheese starts to melt).

Put the tray out and watch them disappear as everyone walks by! Enjoy!

(This is one recipe that reheats well! If there are any leftovers, I put them in individual ziplock bags. To reheat, remove the ziplock bag and microwave for 25 seconds on a microwave safe plate.)

Flying by and pulling up

It’s the story as old as time. He’s growing up so quickly.

I haven’t slept, but I blinked. (I’m seriously gonna make a t-shirt out of this!)

He is pulling up now and cruising. I keep trying to tell him he has plenty of time to slow down and learn, but he keeps smiling as he does it, so I’m pretty sure I’m gonna have to run after this one pretty soon!

DIY: Day of the Dead Mask – Disney Coco Inspired

Did you see Disney’s Coco? It is coming out on Blu-Ray on February 27th. I’m sharing a fun and simple craft below, along with the printable so you can download it yourself.

Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday observed around the world. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. Isn’t that beautiful? The bright and bold colors are stunning and make the perfect backdrop for a beautiful party.


What you will need:

  • a print out of the mask
  • crayons
  • scissors

Talk to the kids about symmetry. We looked up a few pictures on my phone and talked about how the masks were the same on both sides – as if you could fold the mask in half, right down the middle, and it would be the same on both sides.

I started with the eyes. Whatever I did to one eye, I did to the other eye.

It was so fun to see what they were coming up with!
