Must haves for Cat Lovers #BBNshops

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Boombox Network . This post contains affiliate links.




I don't call myself a cat owner. I like to think I am more of a cat slave. They own me. I cater to their whims. They eat off my plate and I am constantly on the lookout for furniture and toys that will pique their curiosity.

Are you ready for some tailgating? #BBNshops

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

Tailgating Essentials #BBNshops


Are you ready for some tailgating? I sure am! The weather cools, the night comes earlier, but still we find ourselves outside - whether it's in our own backyard, the parking lot of the big game or the local high school football field. This set of items keeps you cool, warm, safe and comfortable - practical and fun! Also, great gift ideas for the football fans in your life.

  1. SportBrella - This portable umbrella sets up in seconds and protects your entire family from wind, rain, sand and the blazing sun. Order it online and pick it up at Walmart.
  2. Tailgating Cooler - An ice chest, charcoal grill and all the utensils in one portable package. Shoulder strap or handles, you decide how to carry it, after you order it from Walmart.
  3. LED Lantern - Don't you love the retro look, but with the safety and brightness of LED lighting? Order it now from Best Buy.
  4. BackPack Cooler Chair - All in one - your chair, your cooler, and your hands are free! Pick this up at JCPenney.
  5. Football Blanket - Since childhood, sitting on the bleachers was always better with one of these wool blankets over your legs. Online at Best Buy.
  6. Grill Light - It always gets dark before you know it. Clip this almost anywhere and the flexible neck lets you point it where you need it. Buy it at JCPenney.
  7. Weather Resistant Outdoor Speaker - Get the sound to everyone with this large speaker that can be placed horizontally or vertically and keep going for 6 hours. You can find this at Best Buy.
  8. The Picnic Pack - Enough for snack time for the whole team and the coaches. 16 Burgers and 16 Franks, all gourmet. Order it from Omaha Steaks and keep it in the freezer until you need them.
  9. Football Claw - Now there's the perfect place to keep that Game Ball - on the wall! Order it now so its on hand when you need it, at The Container Store.

2013 Blizzard

October 2013 South Dakota was hit with one of the worst blizzards in recorded history. We received approximately 36 inches of snow at my house which translated into drifts between 5 feet and 10 feet high. We lost power about 30 minutes into the blizzard. Everything in my house runs on electricity and I was NOT prepared for this. I had one Energizer headlamp and a few candles. I had no non-perishable food. Luckily our access to water was not affected.

Sausage Ratatouille Recipe and Giveaway

I received a Veggetti along with a $25.00 gift card to purchase vegetables. All thoughts and opinions are my own and I have received no further compensation.

#Veggetti

Just about every Saturday morning you will find me at The Black Hills Farmer's Market. I love it there and I definitely have my favorite vendors and Dale from Spearfish always seems to have just what I am looking for! He has the BEST tomatoes in the region. Tomatoes are the basis for my delicious Sausage Ratatouille and when I received the Veggetti® I thought what a great addition this will be to my Ratatouille!
