Happy Saturday!! I gotta tell ya. What a great week! Hope you can say the same. We found ourselves all over the place enjoying some very nice day trips. First we spent a lovely day in the city, as in Manhattan for those of you non-East-Coasters. HB suggested going in for the day to go to a street fair. Our day was spent shopping and munch on street food. We walked around, went to Bryant Park and even took the girls on the carousel. It was a leisurely family day.

caroselWe also had a fun-filled day at a balloon festival. What a blast that was! The girls went crazy for the hot air balloons! We ate good food and the girls had a ton of fun just running around in the fields. We even got to play inside an air balloon. It was hot and humid but a couple of beach balls inside and they couldn’t have been happier.

balloon festWe also got invited by the kind people at Vlasic to check out a pickling demonstration performed by their brand corporate chef, Chris Posner. I loved learning about their pickles and their new line, Farmer’s Garden. We got to sample their new pickles and they are fantastic!! Love that there are even peppers, carrots and garlic in there that are just as tasty as the pickles. Nom Nom! You can see my pictures from the event on Instagram.

Tag, you're itToday HB and I are off to the (mud) races again with an all-female run that supports breast cancer with some girlfriends of mine. Gonna be a blast! Then we’ll likely spend the rest of our weekend in supreme relaxation mode as we recuperate for all the hard work and fun. And I think after all that work we’ll be deserving a treat.

This week I stumbled across a genius, out of the box spin on a classic summer treat, the humble s’mores. Doughmesstic came up with Black Forest S’mores! Black forest cake. Love it! S’mores. Love it! I’m tellin’ ya, the two smashed together into marshmallowy, chocolatey, cherry goodness. It’s gotta be a win!

Hope you all had a fantastic week and a wonderful weekend ahead. As always, you’ll find a recap of what was going on here this week. Oh! And tomorrow I’ve got a chance for you to win a bunch of MONEY!! So be sure to come back and check that out. It’s BIG! And come on, free money… who wouldn’t want some?
