Gnarly Nutrition: Clean Sports Nutrition

Gnarly Nutrition: The Healthier Choice Among Athletes

I was recently sent two products from the folks at Gnarly Nutrition–they’re a “clean” company offering products that contain grass-fed whey or vegan protein, no hormones, no artificial sweeteners, no GMOs, and the addition of pre and probiotics. <— yes, all of that is true.   Lately, we have been paying closer attention to our health supplements and the nutrition labels on them. I was recently surprised by one of my tried and true amino acid drinks using artificial sweeteners–surprised and pretty…

Modal Athletic Tote bag

Awesome Gift for Her: Modal Athletic Tote Bag

I received this product for free from Best Buy in exchange for this post.  I’ve fallen in love with a tote bag! The Modal brand athletic tote bag is my new favorite bag to use daily while running errands, at the gym, and as an airline carryon. The thing that makes this tote better than others is the amount of pockets it has (6!) and the functionality of each of them. The interior pockets are water resistant in case of spills. There’s…

Why I'm inspired by Lorna Jane workout gear

Why I’m Inspired By Lorna Jane Workout Gear

Inspiration is hard to come by. Whether your goal is to lose weight, be more active, eat healthier, or something completely different, staying inspired isn’t easy. I’ve found that what inspires me most is being at the gym with women I admire, wearing quality workout gear, and seeing messages of inspiration in my daily life. Last week I had the opportunity to visit a local Lorna Jane store and I left feeling very inspired. The women who worked there were amazing–helpful,…

Why pay more for a router? Here's what I've learned.

Should you pay more for a router? The honest truth about our NETGEAR Nighthawk router

This post is sponsored by NETGEAR. We have used NETGEAR products since first connecting wifi in our home, and I’m thrilled to work with them today. There are affiliate links in this post.  We have struggled with our slow internet for a while. Thankfully, our service provider is always improving our speeds, but because we live in a small town just outside of Tucson, we just accepted the fact that our wifi will always be lagging. And our poor boys? Since their bedrooms are on…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Keurig400 #CollectiveBias This post is written for My Crazy Good Life by contributor Denise Dykstra. When I was asked to review the new Keurig 2.0, I was sitting far from home on a cold bleacher watching one of our four sons play basketball. It’s as if I had thought, “Ahhhh, I need coffee” and the message magically appeared. There was really no way…

Westward Look Resort in Tucson: Our weekend away!

Dining options include two restaurants, Gold and Lookout, and a breakfast cafe. We spent time on the patio at Lookout listening to all of the fun…

iPad Case, Dock, and Mount: Otterbox Agility Review and #Giveaway

Every once in a while products are created that make you think, “What would I do without this?” The Agility Tablet System by Otterbox is that product for me. iPads are known for being portable–they’re mobile devices. But pulling your iPad in and out of cases whenever you want to change what you’re using it for can be a pain. Otterbox came up with a pretty awesome solution for us: the Agility Tablet System. With Agility, you can house your iPad in a…

PowerSkin Portable Charger for Smartphones

It’s no surprise that I love portable battery chargers–I’ve been raving about them for years. Now that smartphones are like our right hands, I think it’s safe to say that portable chargers are like our left hands. When I find one that I like, I love being able to tell you about it. Lately people have been noticing that my phone looks a little different–it’s got an attachment. That small black box is a PowerSkin portable charger–the PoP’n 2 Battery…

Kia Sedona Parent's Review

Kia Sedona Parent Review

I think I should start by telling you that we’re not a minivan family. We’ve never had one, and I just don’t see us in one. But then the Kia Sedona came along and make me rethink that.   The Sedona didn’t feel like a minivan with all of the luxurious bells and whistles it came with. The boys have decided they want one now because it’s such a comfortable vehicle. While not looking like a typical minivan is awesome, that’s…

What's It Like Inside Disney Animation Studio?

What’s It Like Inside Disney Animation Studio? #BigHero6Event

Press day at Disney Animation Studio was nothing short of amazing. Seeing all of the behind-the-scenes work that’s put into an animated movie is mind-blowing! From animations to voiceover recordings in the sound booth (you’ll see more of that later this week), there is so much work put into each scene. Walking in to the Animation Building, you can quickly see that the space has been redecorated to celebrate their latest film, Big Hero 6. There are even drawings on the walls…
