All opinions are mine alone. #HolidayFlavorsareHere #CollectiveBias Etched glassSince we’re lucky to live within walking distance of our co-op school, we often offer to parents who do pick up that they can come park at our house and walk with us to the school whenever they want. They know they will get some awesome conversations while we walk back and forth to school, and they also know that they will get offered a steaming mug of coffee to fend off the cold when we return from our walk. Keurig and Lindor 5To celebrate the changing of the seasons, I wanted to make myself a cute little coffee bar that had everything at  the ready for our guests to help themselves to the perfect mug of coffee throughout winter. All it took was a trip to Sam’s Club and I loaded up on everything I needed – Starbucks® Holiday Blend 60ct K-Cup® pods, Lindt Chocolate Assorted Lindor Truffle Bag 19 oz., and some fancy mugs to do a little glass etching monogram DIY.

10 tips for summertime snacking on the go

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PrepFreeProtein #CollectiveBiasLorissa's Kitchen platedOne thing we are adamant about with our kids is that they grow up in an active family. With so many beautiful places to visit right near us, we make it a point to go biking, hiking, and exploring whenever possible. Our kiddos are well-traveled little adventurers at this point, and after the long winter we had, we're all excited to get out and play.

With summer weather slowly arriving in the Pacific Northwest, we’ve been taking every opportunity to get outside and enjoy every last minute of the sunshine. I love being out in nature and being active as a family, but I hate that that sometimes means eating out more than I would like. So, I've started packing healthy snacks with us for our adventures that help us keep fueled up without weighing us down.
