Learn How Weight Watcher’s Can Work for You

This post was created as part of a relationship in which I was sponsored by Weight Watchers and given a free three month subscription to try their new Personal Coaching product and write about my experience. Though I was compensated for my time and commitment, all views, positive and negative, are my own. #WeightWatchers #WWsponsored

Egg Scramble on Weight Watchers

Months ago, if you had asked me how I like my eggs, I might have answered – “In a cake.” But today, I’d say, “just whites, scrambled with bell peppers and fat free cheese, please.” And how did I end up changing like that? With the help of Weight Watcher’s and their personal coaching system, that’s how!

How to Make Artisan Chicken at Home

I was provided with complimentary product and compensation to try out this recipe for the McDonald’s® all new Artisan Grilled Chicken. All opinions and overuse of the word awesome are my own :) #McDPartners

So, you guys all know that I’m a big fan of McDonald’s. 

That was my first job. And the franchise owners here where I live treated us amazing. My McDonald’s was in the mall, so it was fun. Also, I love that they partner with the Ronald McDonald House. That’s the place that helps families have a place to stay when their kiddos are at a Children’s Hospital. {Which my family has used a ton of times, due to lots of emergencies. It’s a lifesaver.} And it’s funded by you putting your change into those little donation boxes in front of each register. I also remember having birthday parties at McDonald’s as a kid. I see how excited my little girl gets when she gets a Happy Meal – with apple slices, smaller serving of fries, a cheeseburger, and a yummy chocolate milk, plus an awesome toy! So, Mickey D’s is a part of our life :) And now there’s a great new addition to their menu that has me super excited….

Pura Vida Hop-a-Rita Recipe

You guys might remember a few months ago that I had the awesome opportunity to get tickets to the RockstarUPROAR festival in Seattle, to meet up with the band Godsmack, and get a VIP experience to try out the amazing Pura Vida tequila on their tour bus. You can see some pictures and video in my post about the festival here. It was super cool to meet the band, and really awesome to get to hear from the people behind the Pura Vida tequila brand – how they got started, how they make it from the highest quality ingredients. I know a lot of people who say they can’t drink tequila. Well, lemme tell ya – this is NOT the tequila you drank in college, my friends :) This stuff is smooth enough for sipping over ice. And it’s even better when mixed into some fabulous drinks. I got to try a couple of awesome drinks while on the tour bus at the concert, and visiting with the band – and was sent an awesome package of complimentary product once I got home, to test out some cool drink recipes to share with you. Here’s a favorite….

Pura Vida Hop-a-Rita Tequila Recipe

Introducing the Pura Vida Hop-A-Rita Recipe! It combines the smoothness of the Pura Vida tequila with the sweetness of the Pura Vida Naranja {which, side note, every time I see this bottle I read it as Narnia. But that shows my book-nerd side, lol.} – plus the flavor of hops and lime. Perfection, anytime. Here’s the info on how to make this crafty concoction yourself:

Ingredients:

1.5 oz pura vida gold
.5 oz naranja
1 oz fresh lime juice
.25 oz agave nectar

Add all ingredients to a shaker. Then shake it. While shaking the drink, I also advise shaking your booty. To the song of your choice. Some excellent choices – Taylor Swift, Shake it Off. Shake it Like a Salt Shaker. Or my newest fave, Uptown Funk :)
Next, you pour this amazingness into a glass. Then top with 3 oz karbach hopadilla. And drink, and enjoy with a smile. Share with friends. Good times.
