Come shopping with me starting with the Albertson’s mobile app. On the Albertson’s mobile app I first register adding my personal information and setting my local Albertson's store location so I can take advantage of the coupons and weekly ads when shopping.


Once I’m all registered I can easily add discounts in the Albertsons app with the J4U savings tool on products I have on my shopping list such as my favorite Dasani Black Cherry Sparkling Water and my reduced sugar Heinz Ketchup.


I’m also able to check to see if some of my favorites are on sale so I can be sure to stock up. I love a good sale on my favorite products.

This week the Classico Tomato Basil has a coupon which is perfect for my Pizza Meatball Recipe. I’m planning to serve my Bacon Ranch Wedge Salad with the meatballs so I add Kraft Ranch Dressing to my shopping list which is also on sale. I also grabbed some Oui™ by Yoplait® Strawberry French Style Yogurt and Jack Links Original Beef Jerky for some protein-packed snacks on the go.

Our Pups Are More Than Just Pets

This post was sponsored by Milk-Bone® as part of a Two-Post Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. #DogsAreMore #IC #ad


When Milk-Bone asked us to collaborate with them on a blog post about out pets all I could think about it that our pups are more than just our pets they are part of our family.  We got Harrison Oakley Acorn when he was 3 months old. He's our black Taco Terrier which is a mix of a miniature fox terrier and a chihuahua. He is our rescue dog. His mom and dad were put in a foster home when his mom was pregnant with him because their owner had a stroke and couldn't take care of them anymore. We were lucky because he was born at the foster home and got to live with his parents up until we adopted him. He's our first dog. I had no idea how much I would love having a puppy until my son convinced me we need a puppy. One look at Harry and I was sold. He is the sweetest little pup. I call him my shadow not only because he's black but also because he follows me everywhere.


Pink Poppy Rose or Rosie is our baby. She's a 4-month-old border collie. We got her from a local farmer/rancher. We call her out silly sitter because she sits in the funniest places and in the funniest ways. For example, when we're in the car she thinks she can fit on the little armrest next to the driver's seat to use as her seat. She finds all sorts of silly ways to sit around the house. Rosie is learning new tricks every day. She just learned to shake your hand and is now working on rolling over. She loves having a crunchy treat as an incentive to work on her tricks. Harrison has been helping her out by showing how to do the tricks. It's the cutest thing to watch.

Both of these pups have come into our lives and we had no idea how they would enrich our family and bring comfort and companionship to each of us daily. Harrison always knows when someone is sad. He is right there by your side the moment he senses you need comfort. Rosie is a sweetheart

Milk-Bone is celebrating their 20th anniversary. To celebrate they are working with Canine Assistants which is a non-profit organization that trains service dogs to help kids and adults with special needs and disabilities and then gives them a service dog to assist them.
As part of the 20th-anniversary celebration, Milk-Bone created a video to showcase some of these sweet service dogs and their pet parents. Isn't this the sweetest video?




Do you have a pet that's more than just a pet to your family?


Visiting The Northwest with my Samsung GS8

These past two weeks have been full of fun and adventure for the end of our summer activities. I took a road trip with my daughter up to Seattle and looped back down through Portland, Oregon. We have the best time navigating through the Rocky Mountains of the Northwest and exploring new places we've never visited.

We packed up our gear and heading out. Some nights we stayed in a hotel and some nights we decided to camp. We camped either in the back of our wagon or put up a tent and hung out by the river and hot springs.  It was mom's turn for a new phone so I got the Samsung Galaxy GS8 and I'm sure glad I did. I took photos and shared short videos on Instagram stories and even mapped out our route using my Samsung GS8.




On the top is a photo of the water front is Seattle overlooking the Puget Sound. The water and sky were so blue and beautiful that day. On the left is the trail head of the Pacific Coast Trail. A few years ago a forest fire had gone through the area leaving a graveyard of burnt tree trunks. Now along with those dead trees are mixed in new growth trees. It was really beautiful to see. To the right is a photo of me in front of Sahalie Falls in Oregon. All the photos were taken with my Samsung GS8.

It's so nice that we live in a time where we have our camera, video camera, phone, and navigation wrapped up into one nice little pocket sized package.

I bought my unlocked Samsung GS8 phone on Walmart.com It was pretty easy and it arrived right before we left on our trip. I that the phone is unlocked. This makes it so you can choose your carrier as well as your own data plan and other services¹.  The Unlocked Samsung GS8 and the Unlocked Samsung GS8+ are both available at Walmart.com and only available online.






Some of the features of the Samsung GS8 include "the world’s first Infinity Screen," and the Galaxy S8+ is even bigger! It's water resistant which was nice since we were near the river and hot springs. It can handle some splashing and even an accidental dunk. Ok, I love this feature, wireless charging on a power up pad (charger sold separately.) So easy!  You can also add to your storage up to 256GB
with a microSD card (sold separately.) The Unlocked by Samsung smartphones means it works on your choice of carrier in the U.S. so you get to choose the one you like best. You can take your take your device anywhere, from Mexico City to Paris and more.² There are fewer preloaded apps too.
Guess what? All Unlocked by Samsung smartphones come with a standard U.S. limited warranty.³
