Celebrate Father's Day With Precious Moments

Disclosure: Party of 5 received a sample in order to bring you this review. As always all opinions are my own.





Fathers cast away so much love…which is why for nearly 40 years loved ones have relied on 
Precious Moments for gifts that honor a Father’s caring, sharing and love. 

Precious Moments Good Things Come To Those Who Wait
Patience is a virtue, and no one knows this better than a seasoned fisherman.  A young sportsman happily lounges a day away on the water with his puppy, waiting for the “big one” to bite.  A unique gift for a fisherman and those who love them.  It’s the perfect Father’s Day gift!  Bisque porcelain figurine is expertly hand painted and is approximately 4 inches high.  SRP: $60.99




Precious Moments make a great gift for any occasion,especially since they have figures to commemorate almost every occasion in life.

You can find the "Good Things Come To Those Who Wait" on the Precious Moments website. 

My girls cannot wait until Father's Day to give this to their daddy.

ROCK THIS BOAT: NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK (NKOTB) June 1st!

This post was sponsored by the Role Mommy Writer's Network.  All opinions are 100% my own. 





Growing up as a child from the 80's I naturally listened to and totally adored NKOTB! Hangin' Tough was one of my favorites while my sister preferred Please Don't Go Girl and we often fought over which song got played next. Being that I'm older meant I always won! 


Even now as an adult I love listening to the old KNOTB songs and jammin around the house. My kids think I'm crazy but reliving my childhood makes me happy. 

Of course I always missed the concerts when they came around, selling out so fast and all. 

Watching Rock This Boat makes me relive childhood all over again. Make sure you tune in to the second season premier June 1st at 8:30 pm ET / 7:30 CT on PopTV




This summer, Pop jumps on-board one of the hottest selling, fan-driven cruises of the year, featuring one of the most popular bands in music history, with the second season television series premiere of ROCK THIS BOAT: NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK (NKOTB) on Thursday, June 9 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT.
 
Season two of the music reality series brings fans intimate, unprecedented access to NKOTB in 10 new television episodes. To further immerse viewers in the NKOTB experience, Pop has teamed up with Littlstar, a premier global network dedicated to virtual reality (VR) and 360 degree video, to launch immersive content on web, mobile, headset and Apple TV platforms. The dedicated VR and 360 degree experiences will include live performances with the band, selfies with Donnie, surf lessons with Joey and Jonathan, and more.
 




Over the past eight years since reuniting, the ever popular NKOTB has played to countless sold out arenas and since brought back their wildly popular cruise, which first set sail in the 90s, as an exclusive experience for their fans. NKOTB bandmates, Donnie, Danny, Joey, Jordan and Jonathan, make the cruise one of those can’t miss annual experiences with up-close and personal interactions with fans, theme parties and special live music performances. NKOTB has sold more than 80 million albums worldwide. With numerous sold out tours and multiple #1 hit songs, the band’s annual party cruise has sold out eight years in a row. 
 
“We are elated to re-team with Donnie Wahlberg and pop culture icons New Kids on the Block for a second season of “Rock This Boat,” said Paul Adler, SVP of Original Programming and Development. “As a network that strives to give fans new experiences and perspectives on their favorite artists, the unprecedented VIP access we were granted this season not only achieves, but surpasses this goal.”



 



In season two of ROCK THIS BOAT: NKOTB, the cameras focus directly on the band with unprecedented access to all five members as they engage with each other and rock out with their fans, both on- and off-stage. This season will give fans a whole new perspective on the NKOTB cruise as they experience it through the band members’ eyes with pre-cruise video shot in their homes, exclusive access to rehearsals for deck parties and concerts, and revealing looks inside their cabins.  Also, new for season two are five consulting producers behind the camera who are die-hard NKOTB fans, representing the voice and perspective of the band’s most loyal followers.
 
“No producer could help us properly capture the fan experience, better than the fans themselves,” added Executive Producer Donnie Wahlberg.
 
ROCK THIS BOAT is produced by Jarrett Creative Group in association with Donnie D. Productions. Executive Producers are Donnie Wahlberg, Julie Insogna Jarrett and Seth Jarrett.

Litehouse Salad Dressing & A Giveaway #SeeTheLight






This review and giveaway was made possible by iConnect Influencer Management and Litehouse Foods. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.



When I think salad I think of those shelf stable dressings and don't really look twice at the refrigerated ones. It's just always been habit for me to use a room temperature dressing on my salads. But did you ever stop to think that your salad is nice and crisp and cold and you added warm dressing to it? Me either! Then I came across Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese and Homestyle Ranch in the refrigerated salad section and my world has been changed.






My favorite lunch is egg salad and I discovered a way to make it with a twist! Instead of using mayo I grabbed the Litehouse Chunky Blue Cheese Dressing. What a difference! The egg salad has a different taste with just a simple ingredient. 





Adding the Litehouse Chunky Bleu Cheese gives my egg salad some extra creaminess. The best part is no one else like it so I have more for myself. 

I pair my egg salad sandwich with a nice salad for a balanced meal. 



This summer serve up some fresh veggies with a variety of Litehouse dressings and let your kids dip and taste new flavors. You might be surprised at which ones quickly become their favorites. 





ONE reader will receive 2 coupons for free Litehouse dressing. Ends 6/7/16
