Church Hill Classics Makes Thoughtful Gifting Easy

I vividly remember the call from my brother on the night of my 12th birthday. I was with my dad, at my grandparents’ house, in Bunkie, Louisiana. We had been on pins and needles all day waiting for updates as my sister-in-law was in labor, in Texas, with their first child; the child who would make me an aunt. He called and asked specifically to speak with me, just because he wanted me to know that not only was I an aunt, but that baby girl would always be my birthday buddy. How cool is that?!?

Although they live across the country from me in Oregon and our time spent together is few and far between, this Texas aunt couldn’t be more proud of the accomplishments that red headed newborn, who wasn’t big enough to take up my entire lap as a baby, has accomplished as she’s moved in to adulthood. 

Most recently, her biggest accomplishment was walking the stage at the University of Oregon to receive her undergraduate diploma. I wasn’t able to make it to her graduation, but thank goodness for Facebook, I got to follow along with all of the pictures and almost felt like I was there.

Love this picture of my sweet niece with my big brother, her daddy.

When there is a graduate in your family, one of the first things you have to think about is in what way do you plan to honor this accomplishment? In other words, what gift are you giving them? Let’s be honest. We all know what a graduate really wants. Money. Am I right?! 

But sometimes that’s not an option for the gifter and sometimes you really just want to give something a little more meaningful and thoughtful. I wrote a post about graduation gift ideas recently because when you’re put on the spot, it’s not always easy to come up with that perfect idea. But, I have the perfect idea for you here.

Church Hill Classics Diploma Frame

After four years of hard work, the diploma is the biggest symbol of an accomplishment achieved with hard work and sacrifice. After all of that time and money spent earning that degree, no diploma should end up in a drawer, forgotten about, or even destroyed. Unfortunately, this happens all too often though. After a recent survey conducted by The Motherhood, 56 percent of respondents never framed their diplomas. In all honesty, if it wasn’t for my mother-in-law framing my diploma four years after I earned it, it would probably still be rolled up in a tube. ;)

In ten years, a graduate might forget how much money they got from Aunt Mary, or the nice pen from Joe, but they will always remember who gave them a beautiful diploma frame that has the potential to last a lifetime and give them a constant sense of pride for the accomplishment they achieved.

That was my goal when I picked out this gorgeous frame from Church Hill Classics.

Graduation Gift Ideas

Church Hill Classics is a professional framing company that helps graduates preserve and showcase those hard-earned diplomas with officially licensed frames. 

With all of their diploma frames handcrafted in the USA, Church Hill Classics offers an extensive selection of custom frame styles for more than 1,500 colleges and universities. With all of the customization options, it’s anything but your average graduation gift.

What makes it even better is the folks at Church Hill Classics are also offering free shipping on any of their products to all of YOU! This promotion will run through July 13, 2015, so act fast! Use the code: HK55F

How About a Fun Contest?

Church Hill Classics has launched their “Proudest Moments” photo contest where you can win cash prizes!! And, it’s not limited to just graduation photos, either! 

I just might have to enter with one of my pictures from my daughter’s birth! It was definitely one of my proudest moments. Can’t hurt to try!

The contest is open to all legal U.S. residents and there is no age requirement.

They’re awarding a total of $500 to 5 winners and the Grand Prize Winner has the chance of winning $250! 

So get to know Church Hill Classics and all they have to offer for graduation season. A diploma is a constant reminder of all the hard work that went into getting that degree. Give them a reason to put it on display. Hey, maybe you’ll be the cool aunt (or uncle), too, like me with the thoughtful gift. ;)

This post is part of the blogger program by Church Hill Classics and The Motherhood, who compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.

 

My Least Favorite Post Pregnancy Issue

I was pregnant during some part of every year between 2008 and 2012. I loved being pregnant, fortunately, and loved having babies, but in spite of reading every pregnancy article I could find, I was unprepared for what it would do to my body AFTER the babies were born. 

Actually, after they were born, I didn’t really have time to think about my own body since I was so worried about every milestone they needed to hit. In reality, I was more worried about every meal they needed to have. ;) Those little suckers are exhausting. But they are so worth it. 

However, when my trainer asks us to do plyometric workouts like this picture or sets of stairs now, I cringe a little because I know my legs can handle it but my bladder can’t. Ugh. 

Athletes Doing Box Jumps At Gym

Fortunately, it’s not something I have to tell the world and I can keep it to myself but it definitely makes things a little harder. 

Did you know more people with bladder leakage are 50 or younger than 60 or older? More people with bladder leakage are in their 20s than in their 80s. Yikes! I had no idea. I thought it was only for older people but it DOES make me feel a little better knowing I’m not alone. I wish it wasn’t an issue I had to deal with but it is what it is. 

Thankfully, Depend provides discreet products that help people regain their freedom and get their lives back. Depend brand has introduced Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs, a new moderate-absorbency brief featuring a thin design for complete comfort and the trusted protection of the Depend brand. Depend Silhouette Active Fit briefs have a lower rise for an underwear-like look, fit and feel. As a category first, the product is available in black and beige colors.

Depend is entering year two of Underwareness, a social movement and charitable cause to break down the bladder leakage stigma. As part of Underwareness, the Depend brand is encouraging people to show their support for women with bladder leakage. For every photo and video shared using #Underwareness and featuring Depend products, the Depend brand will donate $1, up to $3 million, through 2016 to fund charities that advance the research and education of bladder leakage. 

Visit www.underwareness.com to show your support and grab your free sample of Depend Silhouette Active Fit while you are there. 

 

GoPro HERO+ LCD

It wasn’t that long ago we were giving our then tween a GoPro for Christmas and the excitement on his face was priceless! I loved watching him spend the entire day learning to use it. He really was so proud of his new gift and it just makes you feel good when you know you did well as the gifter. 

To this day, this picture still makes me smile. He wore that GoPro on his head the entire day and into the night when we made an ice cream run. Yes, it was Christmas time and we were eating ice cream. Seems dumb to me too, but from the looks on our faces, we thought it was a great idea. HAHA!

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

Now that summer is in full swing, we’re spending a lot of time by the pool which means I don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen but we still have to eat and I still want to eat well.  That’s why I was so excited to try this Roasted Red Pepper Dressing and LOVED the way it tasted on top of my simple salad for lunch. This is definitely going to be my go to dressing for the summer and I loved how easy it was to make. 

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

With just a few ingredients, minimal time spent chopping, and very little time in the food processor, this was ready in no time. 

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

I even got to use one of my new favorite kitchen tools. I was channeling my inner Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman with this Mortar and Pestle while I made a paste out of garlic and salt. I love adding new tools to my kitchen and this was no exception. Did you know that it’s better to keep your spices whole to help them retain flavor and then grind them as you need them? I get excited when I have a new reason to use this cute little tool. 

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

My favorite ingredient for this dressing was the Mezzetta Red Bell Peppers. I could literally eat these as a snack and I could easily take down the whole bottle in one sitting. They taste THAT good!

Roasted Red Pepper Dressing

After I threw all of my ingredients in to the food processor and let it pulse until well blended, I decided it needed a little bit of sweetness. I added a drizzle of honey and oh my word was this combination amazing! I’m so excited to use this on my salads all summer long!

5 Reasons to Fall in Love With Long Cove

My parents and I often sit back and talk about fun little trips we could take where we could share a house together and spend time vacationing as a big family. My kids love spending time with their grandparents and I definitely love the help I get when there are more adults around. We talk about spending time on the lake in the summer and dream about how fun that might be. Owning a second home on the lake could be a perfect family retreat we are ALWAYS in need of!

Did you know there is a place oh so very close to Dallas where that dream could become a reality? It’s called Long Cove

What is Long Cove?

long-cove-texas

 

Is that gorgeous, or what?!!

Located along six miles of continuous shoreline where Cedar Creek Lake is at its deepest with clear, beautiful water, Long Cove is a luxury family getaway for second home owners. 

Not too long ago, the kids and I took a little day trip out to Cedar Creek Lake to see what Long Cove was all about.

I love this video they created during the event to share the types of events they regularly have. There’s even a shot of a few of our kids at :20. See it here

To say I was blown away would be an understatement. It felt more like being at a resort in Mexico than it did being on a lake outside of Dallas in Texas. It’s just beautiful and so very clear that a lot of thought and planning went in to the creation of Long Cove. 

We had the opportunity to take in the sights, do some playing on our own, and tour the gorgeous homes available to potential buyers.

Long Cove

I can’t even tell you how much I loved taking those home tours because it felt like I was walking through a Pottery Barn catalog. :) Simply gorgeous. I loved the open floor plans and all of the natural light that filled the homes. They’ve really thought of everything. And when I say everything, let me tell you the five amenities I couldn’t wait to tell my husband about when we left. 

5 Reasons to Fall in Love With Long Cove

1. Concierge Service – I always hate how much preparation it takes to get out of town. From the shopping to the packing, it can really be so overwhelming. Long Cove totally gets that and that’s why they’ve set up a concierge service that will have your fridge packed and ready to go with whatever items you tell them you need before you get there. 

2. Toy Barn – The Toy Barn is more like Long Cove’s unique library where you can check out footballs, fishing poles, cruiser bikes and all the other gear you need to have fun on the field, down by the lake or on the dock of our pond. 

3. Boat Valet Program – Getting the boat ready to go out on the water takes time and effort but Long Cove is all about giving that time back to you to allow you to spend more time with your family. With the Boat Valet Program, all you have to do is give them a call when you’re on the way and your boat will be cleaned and waiting in the water with a full tank of gas, charged battery and a cooler of ice. How cool is that!?

4. Boat Club – This is for the people who like the idea of having a boat but don’t have any interest in all of the time and energy that goes in to actually owning one. In the Boat Club, you can own several. ;) As a resident of Long Cove, you can become a member of the Boat Club and enjoy shared access to a number of different boats and jetskis. Once a member, simply check out one of your boats online and get ready for a day on the lake. So cool!

5. The Lake Club – This is the community hub for all things fun and where you really get a feel for the community Long Cove embraces. This is where you can do anything from sliding down the windy slide into the pool to playing a game of pool in the game room to building sand castles on Long Cove’s personal beach. 

long cove pool lake view

Now that summer is in full swing, it’s the perfect time to take a tour at Long Cove and see what they have to offer your family. The memories made in the years to come would be priceless!

I left Long Cove dreaming about what it might be like to have our very own second home on the waters of Cedar Creek Lake and that vision is pretty sweet!

Susan G. Komen 3-Day: Do Something Huge

I still remember visiting my step-mom in the hospital as she was waking up from her double mastectomy surgery. It seemed so strange to me that she had just lost such a huge part of her body. In my mind, it seemed devastating to be rid of such a defining part of her womanhood, but to her, they were barriers to a healthy life. After two cancer fights, this was the best way for her to move on, cancer free. That’s courage.

Seeing what she went through was heartbreaking. Fortunately, she’s a happy and healthy grandmother of 13 who’s too busy with golf and pickleball to worry about cancer. She’s a survivor and she’s embracing that freedom!

There was so little I could do during that difficult time in her life. Now, as I inch closer and closer to my 35th birthday and my first mammogram, I would be lying if I told you I don’t have a little bit of concern. After all, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. It’s a scary statistic.

We need to end breast cancer forever and the only way to do that is to find a cure. This year, I want to Do Something Huge because one person really can make a difference. That’s why I’m walking in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® event this November.

Susan G. Komen 3 Day

 

 

3 Days. 60 Miles. To End Breast Cancer

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is a 60-mile walk for women and men who want to be a part of something bigger — ending breast cancer forever. Participants raise a minimum of $2,300 and walk an average of 20 miles a day for three consecutive days, educating tens of thousands of people about breast health and raising funds to help support breast cancer research and community outreach programs. 

I’ll be following a 16 week training program starting toward the end of next month that will take me all the way up to the week of the event.

Susan G. Komen 3-Day

I already work out every single day and I feel like I’m in pretty good shape, but in all honesty, the thought of walking 20 miles in one day is a little intimidating, let alone three days in a row. During the training program, I’ll be working my way up to an 18 mile walk, which increasing miles every week. I’m motivated, yet nervous!

Why I Walk

Whether you’ve watched a loved one or not, every walker in the Susan G. Komen has something in common. They ALL want to find a cure.

It’s a helpless feeling when a loved one tells you they have breast cancer but you know there’s nothing you can really do to help the situation. It’s my goal to Do Something Huge by doing my part in making an impact in the fight against cancer and raising awareness.

Watching videos like this one only inspire me more!

The Susan G. Komen 3-Day® is not a walk in the park. It’s walking 20 miles a day for three straight days. But many who walk the Susan G. Komen 3-Day® have already watched a loved one fight breast cancer. They’ve seen real hardship and they had to do something. They had to do something huge. If you do too, learn more at the3day.org.

One person can make a huge difference and I’m doing my part to Do Something Huge. It’s the greatest distance I can go in the fight against breast cancer.

For all the times you wished YOU could do something, DO SOMETHING!

Roasted Asparagus and Artichoke Spring Casserole

This year, I’ve been on the hunt for healthy recipes for myself and my family. I’ve spent a lot more time in the kitchen experimenting and I’ve actually fallen in love with the process and most of the results. This recipe was no exceptiona and I was so excited to see the smile on my husband’s face when he tried this Roasted Asparagus and Artichoke Spring Casserole for the first time. 

Roasted asparagus & artichoke

When it comes to cheeses, I’ve never been one to experiment with different flavors and now I realize how sad that is. There are so many great flavors and options out there, I can’t believe it took me this long to really fall in love with feta cheese. Thanks to Nikos®, though, it’s a done deal. I’m in love.

Feta has a soft, crumbly texture and a salty, tangy flavor. It is lower in calories than many other types of cheese and can be a healthy addition to any diet, when used in moderation.

When a recipe starts out full of vegetables like this one, I cant’ help but get excited. All of these colors really are beautiful! These are my asparagus, artichoke hearts, and red bell pepper ready to go in the oven to be roasted.

roasted asparagus & artichoke

 My favorite fact about Nikos® feta cheese is that it’s made with delicious milk from cows NOT treated with rBST, a synthetic growth hormone! 

Roasted Artichokes & Asparagus Spring Casserole

 

This recipe makes the perfect addition to your next dinner party. Spend a little time chopping and let the oven do the rest of the work for you. Your guests will thank you and it just may end up on your regular dinner rotation from now on. I know my family will definitely be requesting it again and I couldn’t be happier because it’s a great way to keep healthy foods on our table!

Notes
  1. This can be made and kept in the refrigerator for up to four hours in advance of baking. Make sure to adjust the baking time if the casserole goes into the oven cold.

Butterfinger Smoothie

I’ve been on a fitness journey for about the past two years now, after I put in a good six months of focusing on nothing but the care of my three littles ones, ages 3 and under. I decided it was finally time for me to start making myself a priority and doing what it takes to make me feel better. As a former athlete, I knew it wouldn’t take much to get there, I just had to put the first foot forward.

Fast forward two years later and I’m quite literally obsessed with my fitness routine. I like to think it’s a healthy obsession but my husband might disagree since I talk to him about all the exercises we do and now go to bed much earlier than his night owl self would like me to. Those 5am wake up calls come really fast, though.

Not only am I trying to up my fitness game, but I’ve also been taking better care of myself, nutritionally. As they say, you can’t out train a bad diet! That being said, I’ve been sticking to a fairly clean eating diet and I feel a TON better! I spend a lot of time in the kitchen now, but I have really enjoyed all of the new recipes I’ve tried and healthy creations I’ve made for my family.

After a month on an intense nutrition challenge, where we focused on maintaining a certain percentage of carbs, fat, and protein, I’ve learned I needed to up my protein. Y’all, I feel like I’m doing you a huge disservice by not sharing this Butterfinger Smoothie with you! It’s FULL of protein and it tastes UH-MAY-ZING!

Butterfinger Smoothie | Perfect recipe for clean eating and packed full of protein but tastes DELICIOUS!

This recipe is so easy and if you’ve already been trying to eat fairly clean, it’s likely you already have all of the ingredients. Almond milk is my milk of choice since I use it almost everyday as my coffee creamer and with my oatmeal for breakfast, but whatever milk you prefer would work just as well. 

I also added a tablespoon of peanut butter and I like to have the Smucker’s natural peanut butter on hand because it’s the brand I found on the shelf with the lowest amount of sugar. However, any peanut butter would work.

Healthy Butterfinger Smoothie

For this Butterfinger Smoothie recipe, I chose to use Premier Protein’s chocolate flavored whey protein powder. 

premier-protein-chocolate-powder

With 30 grams of protein in just one scoop, it really packs a punch! Each scoop also contains only 180 calories, 2 grams of sugar, and is gluten-free. As an added bonus, there are no artificial flavors, colors, or sweeteners. You can find these protein powders available in either chocolate or vanilla, as well. I was able to grab mine at my local Sam’s Club.

Bravo TV Introduces Odd Mom Out


My mom friends have been my lifeline since before my first son was born almost 6 years ago. I can’t imagine having to do parenthood without them. Fortunately, I was able to make those mom friends fairly easily, blending right in. We just seemed to lead such similar lives. Maybe the fact that I blended in so quickly and easily with those friends is why it was so blatantly obvious I didn’t fit in when I found myself in the company of very well off moms. 

I’m pretty sure they had no desire to hear about my Goodwill craft projects and the clothes I bought at consignment sales. I’m guessing they could care less about the hand-me-down loot we scored from my brother’s son, too. :) Yes, I was definitely the Odd Mom Out and couldn’t find my way out of that group fast enough!

Bravo TV Introduces Odd Mom Out

Thankfully, Bravo TV has introduced a new show for so many of us to completely relate to, in one way or another. When you’re in the physically exhausting state of parenthood, which lasts about 18 years, you can’t help but nod your head when you watch another mother walk through those same struggles on TV. 

Odd-Mom-Out

I was fortunate enough to watch two episodes of Odd Mom Out and I couldn’t stop giggling. It was all so relatable for a mom like me. I know there will be so many moms who will completely agree with me once they have the chance to see it. 

Good news for you! Your chance to see it for the first time is coming up this coming Monday, June 8th, at 10/9c on Bravo. I think it’s the perfect time to gather your girlfriends and have a blast laughing it up, but not without adding a couple of cocktails to the party fun! These Mom-itos and Mom-osas would make the perfect addition to your girlfriend fun!

In summary, that’s hilarity, time with girlfriends, and a chance to win $20,000. Sounds pretty amazing to me! Tune in on Monday to see what I’m talking about and why I’m already in love with this show!
