Bzz Agent Campaign- Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen

As you know I am a member of Bzz Agent, where you can try out products for free!  All you need to do is try out the product, then make reviews or post photographs telling what you thought of the product.  I recently got to try out Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen.  With two small kiddos, I need to use sunscreen every time they are out in the sun, especially my 3 year old, who has fair skin and red hair!  If you are like me, you hate putting sunscreen on.  It feels gross, smells weird, and takes forever to rub it on your skin.

My family went up to Kelley's Island for a family reunion during Memorial Day, and I thought it would be a great time to test out the new sunscreen.  I was AMAZED at how much different this sunscreen is.  It doesn't feel thick, smells great, and rubs into your skin incredibly fast.  Time is important when you have antsy kiddos who want to go outside and enjoy the sun!!!  Another plus, was that nobody got sunburnt!  We got to try out SPF 30, and even in the sunny weather it protected us. I never really paid attention to sunscreen before- just bought it and used it.  Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen was SO different from other sunscreens that it caught my attention.  If you need to buy sunscreen, be sure to try Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen.

White Chocolate Chip Cookies/Trip To St. Louis

It's been awhile!  I guess life with two young kiddos can keep you busy!  I'm glad to be back and I plan to post on a regular basis!

Two weeks ago I had planned a trip to St. Louis, Missouri to visit my good friend, Nicole.  I wanted to make some munchies for us to enjoy when I got there.  I looked in my pantry and all I found were white chocolate chips.  I was too lazy to go down to the stockpile and get regular chocolate chips, so I figured I would make do with these.  I started searching on Pinterest for a recipe that would use white chocolate chips.  First of all, I LOVE Pinterest!  There were a ton of recipes to choose from.  I picked this one in particular because the cookies in the photos looked really yummy!   The cookies were quick to whip up, and they were soft and gooey and tasted fantastic!  Here are how mine turned out:

The trip to St. Louis was great!  Nicole and I walked down a little strip in nearby St. Charles and browsed in these cute little shops.  I found a shop with dirt cheap spices, and we even tried chocolate covered bacon!  Yum!  I also had the most amazing salad of my entire life at a little pizza shop called Talayna's.  Hope I spelled that right, Nicole!

St. Louis also has an incredible zoo- with FREE admission.  Here are a few photos from our visit:
