#SunRypeFamilySweepstakes Celebrating the release of Disney’s #PixarCoco Film

If y’all have been following me long you know how much my family and I love SunRype products! And we love how often they partner with Disney on the releases of some of their new movies (We’re definitely a Disney family!)

But we’re REALLY excited about this one!! Pixar’s Coco is based on the gorgeous Mexican holiday Day of the Dead where a young boy finds himself in the land of the dead and goes on a journey with his trusty canine in search of this great, great Grandfather who shared his love for music so he can show his family that music isn’t bad at all! My kids have already seen the previews and REALLY want me to take them (We definitely will be going 😉 )

We love SunRype snacks for their convenience (Especially with school back in session, it’s perfect for their afternoon snack and for a side for lunch!) and their amazing flavors! We’ll definitely be taking some with us to see the movie (Because $5 for an unhealthy treat is a no-go for our family!)

SunRype has re-launched their entire snack bar portfolio to be gluten-free, peanut-free, kosher and vegan within the past year, and are so excited to once again collaborate with Disney who shares their passion for health and wellness. Together, they can help deliver fun, educational and nutritional information around the power of healthy eating to individuals and families across North America.

Disney’s commitment to health and wellness dates back to 2006, when the company became the first major media company to establish a Nutrition Guideline Policy to associate its brands with a more nutritious portfolio of foods and beverages. The company has since marked every year of its Healthy Living Commitment with significant milestones, such as becoming the first major media company to launch food advertising standards for children, launching new content and experiences that inspire healthier lifestyles.

Feeling Thankful

It’s Fall time – Which is the time where people feel like giving Thanks and feeling grateful (I still feel like this should be an EVERYDAY kinda thing but still I’ll go with it for this post). I have one thing that I feel so very very thankful for right now. And that’s Bodhi Body.

I’ve been really, really sick lately with still no explanation. But, I’ve literally nearly been tested for everything they can possibly think of so at this point I am assuming that I have the incurable Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. My symptoms lately have presented some extreme pain throughout my body (Mainly in my neck/head/back regions).

I was really excited when my appointment finally came up for my massage because I’ve been in so much pain and knew my therapist Tonya could help me out! She started working on me and I could hear the concerns in her breath when she was working on my back and spine. It hurt so good, haha! She focused mainly on my worst concerns and at the end of it I had absolutely NO pain and STILL have no pain!!

She said she found TWO pinch nerves, one on EACH side and there was a huge knot on the top of my spine where my skull met my spine that usually stemmed from jaw pain (I HAD been having jaw pain because I stopped wearing my mouth guard *facepalm*) and after she worked on my jaw the pain in my neck seriously MELTED away.

I never thought that massage could seriously have such a serious impact on my day to day life but I couldn’t imagine my life without it now. I am so, so thankful for Bodhi Body and my wonderful therapist Tonya. They’ve helped a Mama out – I came home with a new sense of energy and postitivty. I’m ready to take on the day and cannot wait for my next massage. TRY massage – TRY Bodhi Body, treat yourself AND heal yourself!

Thankful,

The Benefits of Massage

As I’ve mentioned before I have been thoroughly enjoying my bi-weekly massages from Bodhi Body. But it’s provided so many more benefits than I could have imagined.

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 5.33.33 PM.png

It’s corrected my pinch nerve problems in my neck almost completely. As soon as I begin to have problems arise again at all it happens to be right around the time my next massage comes and it alleviates the pain and weakness immediately!

Screen Shot 2017-08-30 at 5.38.21 PM.png

Because of their work done on me I am able to workout again without problems in my arms and shoulders which is astounding to me that massage could have seriously such an impact on my physical health (AND emotional) health!

I seriously recommend anyone to just try massage! It doesn’t just feel amazing but also has so many health benefits – If you’re in the Denver area try Bodhi Body! Their therapists are amazing. I LOVE Tonya and Stephanie! AND you can get a free 30 minute massage with my code SIMPLY 😉

Groupon Coupons

If you’ve been following my shopping posts long I do NOT like to pay full price. I worked in the retail world long enough to know there are almost ALWAYS coupons somewhere! So anytime I’m shopping I always check for coupons and almost always find one! Who doesn’t love a good deal?! (Leaves you feeling way less guilty about spending 😉 )

grouponlogo

My favorite coupon site is Groupon – That’s where I love to find my favorite local deals so figured they’d also have the best coupons and they always do! I’m currently most excited about their Finish Line coupons as I used to work there as a store manager (And that’s where I met my Husband 😉 ) and still loveee their products! Especially with Back To School coming up, have got to get these quickly growing kids new kicks!

pexels-photo-492955

Groupon has both in-store and online coupons when available such as their current online promo code for Finish Line for an extra 25% off AND flat-rate shipping – That’s a killer deal for some sweet new shoes! (They also display the current sales going on – So convenient)

I’m probably a little biased when it comes to Finish Line but I use their deals myself and love the ease the Groupon coupon’s page provides! I highly recommend checking it out next time you make ANY purchase – Online or in-store!

Sock Fancy

I love socks. They’re comfortable and keep my oddly ALWAYS COLD feet toasty warm. Well – I had no clue this was a thing but apparently they have SOCK subscription boxes and I just tried Sock Fancy and LOVE THEM. They have hundreds of designs they make in house every year and they’re not like normal long socks that are too tight around your leg, too hot, or uncomfortable – They’re CUTE, they’re light and airy, they’re loose around the leg AND they’re SOFT!

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 9.37.13 AM.png

Each month I receive two pairs of socks. The first pair I got looks like LSU colors AND tiger stripes (GEAUX TIGERS! Gonna miss you this year Fournette 😥 ) So now I can comfortably and ADORABLY show my pride (And now have lucky team socks 😉 )!

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 9.55.56 AM

Also, if you’ve been following me at ALL you know I have a pineapple addiction – So I’m SO excited to have a pair of PINEAPPLE socks!! They shall be my blog recipe inspiration socks XD. Needless to say, I LOVE Sock Fancy and am so excited to have such good looking and high quality socks sent to me every month!

Check them out!

Bodhi Body Studio Progress – Part 2

Well, I’ve been getting regular massages (Every 2 weeks) from Bodhi Body and am continuing to see wonderful progress in my overall well being. Being a parent in general is exhausting so it does feel wonderful to get the pampering – But it goes so much farther than that.

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 8.22.44 AM.png

When I went recently by myself, I had Zach who is an amazing massage therapist and was able to feel I had a little weakness in my left arm (I’m having a rough go with my nerve damage) but he was able to work it enough that I haven’t had ANY problems whatsoever! Nerve damage really wrecks havoc on my life as a Mommy and writer so it’s nice to know that I can get legitimate healing from massage and that I can see significant progress in how often I have the damage coming back.

Screen Shot 2017-07-20 at 8.22.08 AM

My Husband has also been having some shoulder pain from work so I surprised him with a romantic couples massage with their therapists Tonya and Garrett. They were both wonderful and my Husband left feeling completely at ease and pain free!

Screenshot_20170720-084249.png

They also started giving their customers gift bags that contain a gorgeous smelling candle that can be used as massage oil (And they’ll refill it once it’s all gone! How cool is that?!)

I don’t think it’s a mystery on how much I love this place. It’s helping me in so many different ways and I couldn’t imagine going without my bi-weekly massages now!

Putter’s Pride

Hey y’all! You guys know how much I love posting on local places for families around Denver and I’m super excited to take my family here (It’s a total surprise, too. They have NO clue!) so thought I’d share it with y’all!

putterspride1.jpg

Putter’s Pride has been open since 1996 and is an awesome place for families to gather (Might have my Mom come with too so ALL the Aunts / Uncles and Nieces / Nephews can enjoy it together!) They offer entertaining fun for everyone with individual and group rounds of 18-hole miniature golf. It’s great for every age and groups of any size, which is really important with our huge family and very young kiddies!

Putter’s Pride also welcomes Birthday Parties, Corporate Events, Camps, Church Groups, Family Reunions, Local School and Non-Profit Fundraisers and everything in between. For details on group rates and availability on having your party at Putter’s Pride you can call (303) 985-3860 or email us at info@putterspride.com. If Hudson enjoys this place I MAY be booking his 2nd birthday here ❥

If you have guests, such as elderly relatives who want to come and enjoy the party or parents accompanying their child who do not want to participate in miniature golf, they are welcome to come into the party area at no charge.

AND they allow food and drink (Alcohol is prohibited) so I’ll be sure to pack a delicious picnic lunch for my family to enjoy. It’ll be a wonderful experience for all of us and I cannot wait to go (And take photos so I can tell y’all about our time there!)
