Bandelettes® Anti-Chafing Thigh Bands - A thick thighed girls dream come true #Bandelettes #ad

Disclosure: I received this product for review purposes at a reduced or complimentary cost in exchange for an honest and unbiased review 

AS a thick-thighed girl, I'm subject to a little skin irritation, especially when I'm in a skirt or a dress. It isn't a pleasant experience, I assure you.

When I saw the opportunity to try Bandelettes, I did a little happy dance.
Bandelettes are a product line of Anti-Chafing Thigh Bands. I was happy to find out first hand, that these actually work.

Piscifun® Single Shoulder Crossbody Bag #Piscifun #ad

I love functional bags. I tend to accumulate items when out with my 3 boys. I also carry a lot of things to keep them occupied.

I received the Piscifun® Single Shoulder Crossbody Bag and found that i had space for everything! I can store iPods, phones, crayons, notepads, and my wallet and keys, without working about space.

Joining the "Want, Need, Wear, Read" Movement this Christmas

All over the Facebook and Pinterest, I am seeing a new trend.
Less is more.

We all know this, and at the holidays, the vast majority of parents go overboard with gifts.
Us included.

This year, we've decided to try the less is more approach.
Our kids are spoiled. Not that they have the latest and greatest, they just have a lot !

While we were on vacation recently, I found lots of people posting about  "Want, Need, Wear, Read".

I talked to hubby and we decided that we needed to implement this in our own home.

Leaves really do change colors! We took an Autumn break and headed North !

If you didn't know it, I'm a Southern Girl.
I was born in the South, raised in the South.
I've seen snow a couple of times, and have even skied.
But I prefer the less is more lifestyle.
Less clothing to bundle up in, less shoes to wear.
[My feet can attest to the shoe thing]

But as much as I love being int he warmer climate all year round, I must admit, I was up for a trip to see some of the beauty of Autumn

We planned a trip to Pennsylvania. Our trip destination was Hershey, PA.
Um, yeah ... CHOCOLATE !!!

Update on my 1st Half marathon @Ainsley's Angels #IRun4Joshua @whodoUrun4 #TogetherWeShall #InclusionWins

It's been a little over 2 weeks since the Ainsley's Angels Inaugural Half Marathon.
Every time I try to write this post, I get distracted.
So here goes !!!

On October 18th, I fulfilled a bucket list item of mine. I participated in a Half Marathon. 13.1 miles of open trail in Pasco County.

There have been plenty of Half Marathons in my area, so why this one? The first is because it was for Ainsley's Angels. I have no direct connection to them but do love their organization. The second is that I Run 4 buddies were included in this race. Why? Run Jodi!

She is not only one of the Ambassadors for I Run 4, but the Florida Ambassador for Ainsley's Angels. And when she announced this race, the very 1st Half Marathon for Ainsley's Angels, I knew I had to be a part of it.
