Romantic Date Ideas for Couples

Rent a Pontoon boat on a nice summer day and enjoy the relaxation of being on the water, cuddling in a nice breeze as you both take in the beautiful scenery.

Minigolf can be a romantic date especially if one of you doesn't know how to play, so the other can snuggle up close and show you how.

Try a restaurant that you've never been to before. To make it more of exciting, pick a cuisine that neither of you are familiar with.

Have a picnic in the park on a beautiful day. Bring a nice blanket, picnic basket, plates, cups, utensils, prepared food, beverages, flowers. Sit close and enjoy the scenery and/or the sunset.

Pamper yourselves by enjoying a couples massage and spa experience together.

Pick a city you've never been to and bring camera's so you both can take photos of things that interest you, and also take photos together at various spots.

Take dance lessons together, such as foxtrot, rumba, salsa, tango, waltz are dances that couples can learn together.

23andMe Review: Health + Ancestry Personal Genetic Service

This is what I received in my 23 and Me kit.

I was super excited to receive my ancestry composition results. It only took a few weeks. I received a detailed breakdown of all that was found in my dna. I was definitely surprised by what it said. That's the most exciting part, finding out new things about your background. I was so excited, I posted it on Facebook, I was so proud.

Here is my ancestry composition:

But that wasn't the end of it, there was much more.

35+ reports including: Ancestry Composition, Ancestry Detail Reports, Maternal & Paternal Haplogroups, Neanderthal Ancestry, Your DNA Family.

Plus DNA Relative Finder which is a huge list of thousands of people who I may possibly be related to.

I found and contacted an aunt I didn't know I had, a sister my mom didn't know she had, and then we found out my mom has 2 more sisters and 2 more brothers. It was mind blowing and thrilling. Now we're all friends.

23 and Me allows members to opt in or opt out of sharing their ancestry information. So if you don't want anyone to contact you then you can choose that option. But if you do want to connect with relatives, you can opt in to that as well. You can choose to participate in having your results used in genetic research and you can choose to keep it private.

Homemade Dog Food w/Pasta

Our dog loves to eat, I know this by the way he stares at us every time we eat & how he will sit in front of me and stare at me letting me know he wants his treats. But all of a sudden he went from eating normally to waiting to after midnight to eat only one small bowl of dry food, however if any "people" food was put in front of him, he'd gobble it down.

Now of course I heard the usual "if he's hungry, he'll eventually eat" but knowing how much I enjoy eating and how good it feels to eat something good every day, I couldn't look at him and know he's unhappy with his food for no apparent reason but still I knew so I decided to make him some homemade dog food, knowing how much he loves "people" food, I figured I could get him to eat on a regular schedule and it worked! He now eats two meals a day instead of barely one and I can tell he's enjoying it the way he licks the plate clean every time.

Here is one of his favorite recipes.

  • 2.25lb of ground turkey
  • 1/2 box of angel hair pasta
  • 1 bag of frozen peas
  • 1 bag of frozen carrots
  • 32 ounces of water

Cook the anger hair in one pot and then a in a large skillet add the ground turkey, carrots, peas, cook on medium heat until ground beef is cooked, then turn on low for 40 minutes and cover. (add four 8 ounces of water at a time while it's cooking) I like when I can mash the carrots, then I know it's all ready. Add everything together, let it cool off and serve.

Always check beforehand which foods are best for your dog and which ones to avoid. These specific foods have proven to be healthy for a our dogs breed.

The Ultimate Dog Seat Cover Review

So, what makes this the Ultimate Dog Seat Cover? it has a detachable fleece mat that is super comfortable for our dog, he didn’t want to leave the car. He seemed much more relaxed than normal.

It has a hammock option which is super easy to do, just slip it over the headrest. It is Waterproof. I feel relaxed knowing our car seats won’t become dirty and it’s washable. On the driver’s side there is a large pocket to store bowls, food and toys. It comes with dog seat belt leashes and can be stored in the nylon bag it comes in. Plus it comes with a Lifetime Guarantee. Sounds really good doesn’t it? well let me tell you, it is very good. Our dog loves it, we love it, absolutely no complaints.

Tylee’s Turkey Jerky Human-Grade Dog Treats Review

Disclosure: I received the reviewed product in exchange for an honest review as a #ChewyInfluencer.
Our dog Niner has loved everything he’s received from but this product seems to be his favorite. He goes absolutely crazy for this turkey jerky treats. I must say, they smell so good I want to try one. He’s a very lucky doggy indeed.

The Turkey Jerky Treats are made with 100% all-natural turkey—the same quality meat that you would eat. Just one ingredient, turkey that has been thinly sliced and dehydrated and so every treat is fresh, a dryiing process is used rather than chemical preservatives. I like that I can break it into small pieces or give one large piece. I highly recommend Tylee’s Turkey Jerky Human-Grade Dog Treats! They’re irresistible.

Kitty Kick Stix Review

  • Each Kitty Kick Stix is 100% handmade in San Clemente, California.
  • All Toys are cut, sewn, and packed with 100% USA grown organic cat nip.
  • Available in 3 different sizes
Clover immediately took the Kitty Kick Stix and rolled around on the floor with it for a long time. She was having so much fun, it made us smile watching her having a great time.
Misty Lee sniffed the Kitty Kick Stix and walked away. But Misty Lee still won’t use the cat tree so she’s a bit different and is usually hiding or running away from a noise.
But Clover who’s more easy going and playful and loves the cat tree, absolutely had a blast with the Kitty Kick Stix. I am hoping Misty Lee will come around and start enjoying the perks of being a cat.
