Enter to Win a Go Glider Bike from Glide Bikes! #GetOutNGlide

Disclosure: I was provided with product to faciliate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)   

My son Brady who recently turned six, has been begging for a bike. As a parent, I want my son to not only enjoy riding a bike, but I also want him to learn how to properly ride it and to balance on it. Enter Glide Bikes. Glide Bikes was started over eight years ago with one goal in mind: to help people learn how to ride bikes. Glide Bikes are the perfect tools to help kids build their confidence by learning how to balance without the use of training wheels. “We really wanted to give Glidebike kids an empowering experience at every stage of their childhood,” said CEO Ed Mondello. “Whether they’re a toddler grabbing the handle bars for the first time or a young novice that loves cruising the neighborhood, our riders told us what they wanted in a bike, and we listened.”

Most of us have learned how to ride a bicycle by using training wheels; however, training wheels leave out one very important element when it comes to mastering the skills of bike riding, balance! It is the inability to balance while riding a bike that makes it so challenging to transition from training wheels to a traditional two wheel bike.

This challenge is what a balance bike prepares you for! By being built low to the ground, designed with low speed geometry, and the omission of chains, pedals and gears, Glide Bikes are able to set up anyone with the best possible scenario for learning balance, allowing them to be more confident and achieve more in less time.

I personally love that that the design of every Glide Bikes model makes it the perfect learning tool for children of all abilities, including those with special needs. The bicycle’s capacity to balance at slow speeds allows children to become familiar with the feeling of balancing early on. The bike continues to give them more and more confidence as they begin to spend less time with both feet on the ground, and more time balancing.

Discover the perfectly sized bike for your child with the Glide sizing chart:

The EZee Glider is for kids 18 months to 4 years old. Its low stand-over and super light weight make it easy for first timers to master.

The Mini Glider is for toddlers, ages 2 to 5. It has air tires and spoked wheels, giving a smooth ride. It also offers the ability to add pedals.

The Go Glider is is for kids, ages 5 -9, and can be modified into a bike with pedals or a scooter with a foot board.

My son Brady, was given The Go Glider and he loves it! I love that the Glide Bikes are so lightweight. This really does allow the child to easily handle and manipulate the bike without being fearful. One of my favorite features of the Go Glider is that while the child is seated, they can place both feet on the ground at any given time. Their feet operate as both the gas and the brakes. This is such a cool feature! In addition, The Go Glider can be modified into a regular bike by adding pedals. This means that your child can learn to glide, and pedal all on the same bike! Or, you can modify it into a scooter with a foot board. How awesome are those options? I know that Brady is going to have so much fun on his Go Glider bike!

    I’m Running on Dunkin’ Donuts This Holiday Season!

    (I received a gift card to faciliate my review for this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

    I don’t know about you, but I am officially in holiday mode right now! It has been a busy few weeks planning and preparing for Christmas and finishing up some last-minute work projects for 2017. I think that it is safe to say I am running on Dunkin’ Donuts! I have stopped by Dunkin’ Donuts several times these last few weeks to fuel up on my favorite holiday-flavored coffees and lattes!

    I love the new holiday-themed flavors this year! Peppermint Mocha, my personal fave, combines cool peppermint and rich chocolate flavors. The Brown Sugar Cinnamon, brings together the sweet taste of brown sugar and the flavor of cinnamon. Both flavors are available in Dunkin’ Donuts’ hot or iced coffees, lattes, macchiatos and Frozen Dunkin’ Coffee. In addition, Dunkin’ has brought back their festive holiday cups. This year, they feature a festive design and the simple word, “Joy” to convey the happiness and spirit of the season. This year’s design incorporates seasonal graphic icons like snowflakes, peppermints, holly leaves and holiday trees to stir up the warm, nostalgic feelings associated with this special time of year.

    If you are a Dunkin’ Donuts doughnut lover, they have something for you as well! A holiday trio of seasonal donuts, highlights Dunkin’s merry menu. The new Frosted Sugar Cookie Donut is a frosted donut with cookie dough flavored filling and topped with crumbled frosted sugar cookies, while the new Gingerbread Cookie Donut features a caramel frosted donut sprinkled with ginger snap cookie topping. Dunkin’ Donuts also has the Snowflake Sprinkle Donut, a frosted donut with red icing and special snowflake sprinkles, and Snowflake Sprinkle MUNCHKINS, featuring the brand’s chocolate glazed MUNCHKINS donut hole treats rolled in snowflake sprinkles.

    Be sure to stop by your local Dunkin’ Donuts while you are out with friends and family this holiday season and fuel up on these delicious treats!

    Nutrisystem Update: #NSNation #ad

    Disclosure: I have been selected to be a part of the Nutrisystem Nation Blogger Program for the next 3 months in return for my honest opinion and review. All opinions are 100% mine.

    I know that it has been a few weeks since my last Nutrisystem update. I wanted to take a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of the holidays to share a recent update and to share with you a few thoughts that I have been pondering on lately.

    First of all, let me begin by saying that being on a weight-loss plan this time of the year is definitely not for the faint of heart. I am not going to lie. First of all Thanksgiving and now Christmas! While I did not totally veer off-track from my Nutrisystem plan, I have made a few bad food choices along the way and I have not been as consistent with my water intake. I am sharing my honesty with you so that you can see I am human and will make mistakes. BUT, I am back on track this week! The last time I got on the scale I was down 12 pounds. I am going to wait until Monday to get back on the scale to see where I am. I have a goal of at least 20 pounds so I am still on track for my goal! I love the quote above from Bo Jackson, “Set your goals high, and don’t stop till you get there.” My goal is a high one and I know that I am going to achieve it!

    Nutrisystem is such a great program and one of my favorite things is that all the food prep is pretty much already done for you. You don’t have to think about what you will eat for breakast, lunch or dinner. The only thing that you have to do is to decide which delicious entree that you will eat for those meals. (and your snacks in-between) Oh, and don’t forget that you get to eat a delicious snack each night! Score!! Look what I had for dinner tonight! My Nutrisystem Chicken Parmesan entree and roasted zucchini in the oven. So delicious and filling!

    Stay Focused- Remember, weight loss is a marathon towards your goals and not a sprint. Staying focused means being prepared for the unexpected. Nutrisystem is preparing me for healthy and attainable goals after I finish the program. I am finding myself making wise food choices when I have to eat out or having a flex meal at home. I am proud of myself for making these choices and it makes me feel so good! 

    Want to get healthy and lose weight on Nutrisystem? GO HERE to take 40% off!

    Be sure to stay up-to-date on Nutrisystem and all of their latest promotional offers and news by following them on FacebookInstagramTwitter and Pinterest.

    Here’s to another great week of Nutrisystem!

    Pagoda® Snacks are the Perfect Bite for all of your Holiday Parties!

    This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Pagoda®. The opinions and text are all mine.

    I can hardly believe that the holiday season is upon us! One of the things that I love the most about this time of the year is getting together with friends and family. Many of us are so busy during the year that the holidays are the perfect time to catch up. Of course, any get-together requires delicious and easy bites so that we can enjoy every moment together.

    Some of my favorite bites for holiday entertaining are Pagoda® Snacks. Not only are Pagoda Snacks delicious, but they have zero trans fats, use no artificial food dyes, have no high fructose corn syrup, and no MSG. In addition, they are also easy to prepare, which is a huge plus in my book! The last thing that I want to do while preparing for a party is to be in the kitchen all day long cooking. Pagoda Snacks can be easily prepared in the microwave or oven and ready to eat in just minutes! They are so crunchy and delicious and are sure to be a hit with everyone at the party!

    My family and I tried the Pagoda Snacks White Meat Chicken Egg Rolls and the Pork Potstickers that I purchased at my local Publix. Both were equally delicious and the taste was amazing! One of the things that I loved the most about the Pagoda Snacks was the freshness of each product. This is understandable as each product is made with fresh, quality ingredients.

    The Pagoda Snacks White Meat Chicken Egg Rolls are made with the perfect combination of 100% white meat chicken, freshly-cut vegetables and authentic seasonings. They also come with a delicious Sweet Chili dipping sauce that is the perfect complement!

    The Pagoda Snacks Pork Potstickers are equally delicious. Tender pork, freshly-cut vegetables, and authentic seasonings come together to create this delicious snack. Pan-fried or steamed, Pagoda Pork Potstickers are so yummy! Be sure to dip them in the Lime Ponzu sauce to experience a full-flavored and zesty bite!

    Stock up on Pagoda Snacks at your local Publix so that you can be prepared for all of your holiday parties! Be sure to use the digital coupon offer found HERE: https://www.publix.com/savings/coupons/digital-coupons so that you can save on these delicious and easy snacks!
