At first we started with the eye exam that took about 20-30 minutes to find out if…

“This post was sponsored by Weight Watchers as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central. I received complimentary products to facilitate my review.” I have followed the Weight Watchers plan on and off for the past 10 years.

Being that I work from home and on the computer 40+ hours a week, I have a weakness for snacking while sitting at my desk. Weight Watchers Light String Cheese is one way to keep my…

You know the occasional tie, beef jerky, chocolate, etc. So the question we are asking him this year is “What does Dad really want?” for Father’s Day! We decided to take my husband to Sears and let him picked out what he wanted for Father’s Day. Being able to roam through the store and getting a hands-on feel it was like he was in his own little world of happiness. He knew exactly what he wanted for…
