Back To School Sandwiches With @BJsWholesale #shoptheclub #ad

12 Oct

National Sandwich Month is coming to an end but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy sandwiches whenever we want. 

Back To School is approaching very fast and my kids know what type of lunches they want to take to school. When it comes to sandwiches they are only picky about the types of meat they eat.  

A morning breakfast sandwich could be bacon, egg and cheese or a grilled cheese sandwich but a deli sandwich has to be honey glazed or regular turkey. 

Since I’ll be preparing lunches for two kids I’m depending on BJ’s Wholesale to give me the great selection and meats, cheeses, breads, produce and condiments I need. 

My daughter who’s going to 4th grade will probably be the one who will use cookie cutters and make cute faces for her food. (As she did below) My son who is going to 8th grade just wants a meal. He’s not into all the cute lunches. 


I love pre-sliced cheeses. No cutting or slicing just take out of package, put on bread and that’s it. Wellsley  Farms has a variety of cheeses to choose from. Pepper Jack, Provolone, Sharp Cheddar and Muenster are on the top of our list.  


Bread for my kids school lunches have to be on rolls. Even though the kids love Wellsley Farms whole wheat bread and Sara Lee Artesano Bread they prefer rolls at school. My daughter switches up sometimes. BJ’s has a great selection of fresh bakery bread from rolls to whole wheat and even challah when I want to make French Toast for breakfast.

(Turkey and Pepper Jack Cheese on a roll)


Deli meat is Turkey like I mentioned earlier. You can purchased from the deli department by the pound or packaged deli meats. I love Wellsley Farms brand and I think I’m going back to Chicken Breast which is also good. I’ll still but Turkey but I want to eat chicken again. I also want to try buffalo chicken as well. I love spicy food. My kids also love spicy. 

So for back to school cold sandwiches hold better for my kids and when they get home they enjoy grilled cheese or panini sandwiches. No matter what type BJ’s has it all. Here are my grilled cheese and panini versions I made before. Grilled cheese doesn’t have to be just cheese I made a turkey, cheese, peppers and onions. The kids also loved the panini grilled cheese and the triple decker grilled cheese. 


Here’s a great recipe from BJ’s for a grilled Cuban panini sandwich: http://journal.bjs.com/recipes/grilled-cuban-panini

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

I’ve been clipping coupons for years and there’s been times when I went shopping and forgot my coupons or they ripped accidentally (that happened recently) or they expired (the worst). Was there a easier way to carry coupons with me without ever forgetting them?

National Park Foundation Celebrates At Brooklyn Bridge Park #FindYourPark #ad

24 Aug

National Parks Day celebrated their 100th birthday August 22nd at Brooklyn Bridge Park and we were invited to join in the fun and partake in all the activities. 

The National Park Foundation and National Park Service, Bill Nye and Questlove celebrated the 100th birthday of the National Park Service on Monday, August 22nd. In partnership with Brooklyn Bridge Park and One World Trade Center for the celebration, for the first time ever, New Yorkers worked together on a giant digital circuit board to control the color of the lights of One World Trade Center’s spire. The celebration featured music by Ramblin’ Dan, Questlove and a surprise musical performance.

Brooklyn Bridge Park is one of those parks that you could spend hours at because of the beautiful skylines, boats, restaurants and all the fun your kids can have there. Definitely a tourist stop and any picture you take there is beautiful. My son took some amazing shots. 

The first thing we did when we arrived was got free ice cream from The Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory. From 1:30-3:30 free cones or cups of ice cream were given. My kids and I enjoyed that very much. 




We met up with more bloggers and Melissa Musen Gerstein from (The Moms) to explore. My daughter made a sand necklace and took home coloring books. We also spun the wheel and answered trivia questions about history and won prizes. 



Next we took a group photo then headed to the entertainment. Ramblin Dan and the Freewheelin Band did a wonderful job with his songs keeping the kids and parents on their toes. I couldn’t stop singing and dancing. This band is a husband and wife duo. I would attend any event/party they are performing at. 


Park Rangers took visitors on tours and took pictures with those that requested. It was a beautiful day to just enjoy whatever was going on. Even celebrities came by to show their support. 

Here’s the schedule of events:
1:00 PM: Event opens to the public

1:30 PM – 3:30 PM: Free scoop of ice cream at Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory

2:00 PM – 2:45 PM: Ramblin’ Dan & the Freewheelin’ Band at the stage

3:00 PM – 3:10 PM: Junior Ranger Centennial Pledge Ceremony at the stage

3:00 PM – 7:00 PM: Smart Parks Game Jam at American Express tent

3:15 PM – 4:00 PM: Ramblin’ Dan & the Freewheelin’ Band at the stage

4:00 PM – 5:00 PM: Park RX Fitness class at the Harbor View Lawn

5:45 PM – 6:45 PM: Atlas Genius performance at the stage

7:30 PM – 7:45 PM: Remarks, including Secretary of Department of Interior Sally Jewell and Centennial Ambassador Bill Nye

7:45 PM – 10:00 PM: Edison Interactive Floor open to the public

8:00 PM – 10:00 PM: Questlove DJ set

10:00 PM: Event closes

The Park Exchange event series are designed not only to celebrate the National Park Service’s 100th birthday throughout the summer, but also to bring parks to life in unexpected places throughout the country.

There are over 400 national parks, even in big cities across the country. Join us in celebrating this historic moment and come #FindYourPark, o mejor dicho #EncuentraTuParque, in Brooklyn Bridge Park!

NICKELODEON SHOW “PAW PATROL” BRINGS ADVENTURE TO FANS AT THE 2016 GREAT NEW YORK STATE FAIR IN ONLY NORTHEASTERN APPEARANCE 

Young Fairgoers Can Experience the Adventure of a PAW Patrol Mission


 

Nickelodeon’s popular kid’s adventure series, “PAW Patrol,” is coming to the 2016 Great New York State Fair to allow the show’s young fans to experience the thrill of a rescue mission, Acting Fair Director Troy Waffner announced today. The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will visit the Fair from Friday, September 2 to Sunday, September 4. There is no charge to take part in the tour.

 

The fully interactive tour, inspired by PAW Patrol, features an 18-wheel semi-truck PAW Patroller that opens to reveal a life-sized PAW Patrol Headquarters, which kids can walk through. Within the PAW Patroller experience, there are interactive games, a life-sized Lookout Tower (with working periscopes) and a slide to take kids on to the next mission. The tour includes activations featuring two new segments launching this fall – Jungle Rescue and Roll Patrol. PAW Patrol fans can take photos in the Jungle area featuring the new pup tracker, then ride on life-size Roll Patrol racers around a track, and finish their day by taking a photo with PAW Patrol pups – Chase, Marshall, Skye and Rubble. 

PAW Patrol is an animated action-adventure preschool series starring a pack of six heroic pups led by a tech-savvy boy named Ryder. He leads a team of rescue-themed pups who save the day through teamwork, bravery and humor. The program delivers parent-approved life lessons through the pups’ playful misadventures. 

The PAW Patrol Roll Patrol Road Tour will support Canine Companions. The non-profit organization enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly-trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.

 

The New York State Fair, operated by the New York State Department of Agriculture and Markets, runs from August 25 to September 5, 2016. The Fair’s mission, reflected in its theme, “Find Your GREAT!,” is to showcase the best of New York agriculture while providing top-quality entertainment.

Entenmann’s and The Salvation Army Celebrate National Donut Day #EntenmannsDonuts

6 Jun

Don’t you wish everyday was National Donut Day? Well maybe not everyday but every month would be nice. National Donut Day was held June 3rd this year and  the Entenmann’s Donuts event was where you needed to be for free donuts and coffee. The rain didn’t stop New Yorkers from joining in the celebration and satisfying their sweet tooth. 


Entenmann’s Donuts always put a smile on our faces at home and I had to be there to show my support. The Salvation Army was presented with a check from Entenmann’s for $35,000. 


The Salvation Army founded the holiday in 1938 in Chicago to honor the Donut Lassies who served these treats to soldiers and help raise needed funds during the Great Depression. Today, The Salvation Army continues to provide meals, including donuts and numerous other vital services to clients who visit The Salvation Army programs daily. 

It was a great day for free donuts & coffee and we can’t wait till next year. In the meantime I will still be eating donuts.

Momtrends Holiday Soirée Recap

17 Nov

I look forward to Momtrends Holiday parties every year. A few hours of fun with friends, food, fashion show and brands showing us what we absolutely must have this holiday season. 

Walking into the event was filled with beautiful fresh Teleflora flowers. It was like Winter Wonderland. I’ve always enjoyed having a Teleflora arrangement in my house. What I love is you can get flowers for any occasion. It brings out my surroundings on the table and my guests enjoy seeing what new arrangement I ordered.  

 POM juice is amazing. I was shocked when I found out the incredible flavors of juices/teas they have. I was really in shock when I tasted the appetizers that had pomegranate added. The Lamb Meatballs and Pom-Mint Relish and the Pom Guacamole served with tortilla and plantain chips were very good. There were also cocktails like the Pom Mimosa Mocktail and Sparkling Wine with Pom Wonderful Arils. The Pomegranate Peach Passion Tea was my favorite but I would drink them all. My kids enjoyed them as well.  

    
 Igloo Coolers and products are a must have. If you tailgate and party and don’t own the igloo brand then you need to get to a store and pick some up. The Igloo Party Bar is on my wish list. It features an exclusive LiddUp LED light system so when your party goes into the night guests can easily find their drinks. It runs on 4 AA batteries and have removable dividers. Also loved the thermal tote bags and took home in our swag bag the sports 1/2 gallon beverage cooler with hooks. Also the kids lunch bags were a hit and I appreciate Igloo thinking of them as well. There’s also a 45 can ultra collegiate cooler. 

 Family owned Tessemae’s brought along their all natural, healthy condiments. When I first heard of Tessemae’s I tried their ketchup at a kids food festival and immediately purchased a few bottles. This time I was impressed with their salad dressings, marinades, sauces and mayonnaise. Everything was delicious. 

   
Momtrends surprised someone special with a gift for dedicating six years of hard work, writing posts and being a supporter and attendee at all of their events. Who was it? Oh that would be me. I was in total shock and very happy to be recognized and receive an incredible gift. No words can express how I felt and was so grateful and honored. Thank you so much. You made my night and I am blessed to have Momtrends in my life. xoxo.  

 I enjoyed talking with all the brands and there were so much more. The picture below shows who they are.

Recap KidzVuz Holiday Party with the Perez’s 

17 Nov

Kidz Vuz Holiday Party took place at Studio 450 NYC on November 15. I love this party because it’s small and intimate and my kids get to do the networking, test out the toys, have fun with their friends and they cannot get lost. I still talk to the brands but my kids also hand out business cards and enter contests. It’s always a fun time with Kidz Vuz. 

This year Jakks Toys, Classroom Direct, Lincoln Center Kids, Wubble Ball, ThinkFun, Disney Pixar, Bway Zone, Compose Yourself, Vita Coco, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Food For Thoughts Cards, Save The Children, Heart Of Haiti, Randi’s Brownies, Once Upon A Mattress and National PTA were in attendance.  

 Lincoln Center Kids had one of the Nutcracker costumes on display for the kids to try on or take a picture with. My daughter loves watching ballet so this was a treat for her. We also visit Lincoln Center quite a bit so it was nice seeing Lincoln Center Kids at the event. They handed out their free events guide for 2015-2016 and we got to spin the wheel to win free giveaways.  

    
 Wubble Ball was the most popular with the kids. There were balls flying everywhere. I love how soft they are and the biggest one your child can lay in and it won’t pop. The parents were getting knocked I the head but it didn’t hurt. It looks like a bubble but plays like a ball and no pump is needed. Everyone got a sample.  

    
    
    
   
Disney Pixar was promoting their new movie The Good Dinosaur that hits theaters November 25th. We’ve been waiting for this movie and won tickets to a special screening on November 24th. We also received a hat, poster and notebook. Temporary tattoos, stickers and coloring sheets were also available for kids to take home.  

 Jakks Toys made sure to bring their Star Wars collection and Disney’s Star Darlings dolls with them. My daughter took a picture with her favorite doll in hopes of winning. They were all cute.  

   
Food For Thoughts Give Back Greeting Cards is doing great things to feed the hungry. With the purchase of each card, Food for Thoughts Cards donates the value equivalent to the cost of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to a food pantry, soup kitchen, or other organization that feeds the hungry. We wrote encouraging words on a few greeting cards. No one should be without food. 

    
    
    
    
  
    
    
    
 My daughter also loved being interviewed by KidzVuz with her bestie.  

    
 To learn about all the brands mentioned above check out @kidzvuz onTwitter or http://www.kidzvuz.com and look for the hashtag #kidzvuzholiday on Twitter and Instagram. 

Thank you KidzVuz, we had an amazing time and can’t wait for the next KidzVuz event.
