Thank you Ralph’s Grocery for sponsoring this post & giveaway!
Me waiting for the first day of school like:
Are you as ready as I am for the first day of the school?! Don’t get me wrong, being up earlier totally sucks BUT I feel ready to get back to our routine about 1.5 weeks into Summer. My kids love school and being busy, so they are ready too. All praises to teachers everywhere – you’re incredible.
Ralph’s is a major grocery chain in California that specializes in fresh foods at low prices; allowing you to eat healthy without breaking the bank. But there is still so much more that Ralph’s offers it’s shoppers, such as school supplies – basically, it’s a one-stop shop! Let’s be honest, I avoid shopping with my kiddos as much as possible. Also, my friend Kiki swears Ralph’s take-and-bake is the best ever. Trust this girl, she knows her carbs.
I first learned of Mini Melissa shoes from my BFF Kiki. I saw them on her girls feet and I was like, “Ummmmm… what are those adorable things on your kids feet?!” Then she started telling me about all the benefits they offer but honestly I was still too busy looking at how cute they were.
The latest MiniMelissa Summer 2016 collection is iimpossibly delicious. MiniMelissa Aranha III re-imagines Melissa’s signature jelly silhouette with precious melted popsicles atop each toe.
The MiniMelissa Aranha III is currently available for purchase in-stores at Melissa Galerias worldwide and online at shopmelissa.com.
Thank you Hefty® Ultra Strong™ for sponsoring this post and having Ruby & I at your fabulous party!
Last week Ruby Mae and I attended a super fun party to celebrate Hefty® Ultra Strong™’s newest campaign and awesome products. Wrestler, host and actor John Cena combines strength and humor for Hefty in a new campaign for Hefty Ultra Strong™ trash bags, the brand’s best bag ever for an ultra-low price. I fell in love with John Cena when I saw him in the movie Trainwreck with Amy Schumer, super funny.
Ruby & I got gussied up with excitement to head to the Hefty® Ultra Strong™ Live Party! We really like parties. And snacks.
We both really liked the Olympics theme of the party! Side note: I’m really excited for the Olympics to start this Friday! It’s like one of the last things the world comes together to participate in. There is a lot of beauty in it.
So adorable. Jude wants an American Themed birthday party this September, so I was taking lots of notes. So fun that Hefty® Ultra Strong™ is bringing back their “Hefty! Hefty! Hefty!” chant back for this new campaign. I showed Ruby the commercials (above) before we arrived at the party and she cracked up at the “Hefty!” voice.
Ruby said that her favorite activity at the party was the Slime Station! Probably because her Type-A Mom doesn’t do too many activities in our house that involve messes. This activity however seemed to make zero mess and the kids had a blast!
Then it was time for a much needed snack break.
The kids wearing the sweatbands – so adorable. Ruby was obsessed with her trophy and metal. Future Olympian.
The Guess the Scent Station was a fun and creative game as well. I don’t want to brag or anything but…I was told I guess the most right, so.
My favorite thing about the Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags happen to be the scents! They offer fresh, invigorating scents, including Clean Burst™, Tropical Paradise™, Lavender & Sweet Vanilla™, White Pine Breeze™, Crisp Orchard Apple™, Citrus Twist™, Pomegranate Mist™ and Scent Free if you’re not into that sort of thing like I am.
All versions offer ARM & HAMMER™ patented odor neutralizer, active tear resistant technology for better puncture-resistance and a break resistant grip drawstring that prevents the bag from falling inside the can! Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee: Hefty® can handle all your trash bag needs, or your money back.
I wanted to share the LIVE love with you all, so I gave Facebook LIVE a shot to give you guys a little tour of the party.
