Crowdtap Does it again! with McCormick Grill Mates.

Awhile back I joined CrowdTap.  
Well, I have recently decided to be more active and I am loving the freebies and goodies that I get to sample.

Recently, I was sent a kit of seasonings and spices to use while grilling.  
The kit included:

  • Grill Mates® Spiced Brandy & Herb Marinade
  • Grill Mates® Slow and Low Memphis Pit BBQ Rub
  • Grill Mates® Montreal Steak Seasoning Blend
  • Grill Mates® Molasses Bacon Seasoning Blend
  • Grill Mates® Brown Sugar Bourbon BBQ Sauce
Just opening the package made my taste buds begin to water!

My favorite has to be the brown sugar and bourbon barbecue sauce.  
I refrain from licking it out of the bottle, but it's delicious on chicken and burgers. 
It's even tasty on grilled veggies.  
And leftover grilled meat that's made into a sandwich.  
I just can't get enough of it.

I am loving all the fresh and local veggies that I can get this time of year.
Lucky for me, the kiddos like them, too!

The Spiced Brandy & Herb Marinate scared me at first, since we aren't 'spicy folk'.  
But the chicken that I marinated and grilled turned out fabulous! 

Thank you to Crowdtap and McCormick Grill Mates!

Fun at Old Navy!

In my previous post I mentioned that I was a little worried 
because Crowdtap didn't mail me a sample and share they had promised.  
Well, they pulled through this time! 
This time I was selected to go to Old Navy with a handful or friends.  
Our mission was to have fun & try things on and we each got to get a bunch of free goodies.

 Strike a pose!

 I saw this dress and immediately fell in love.  
Loved the stripes, loved the navy and white, loved the fitted bodice.
 It was fun to play dress up.
Kate even found something that fit her belly.
And Lori shows off our free beach bags!  
Summer dresses are so easy.
This also caught me eye - see the stripes? see the colors?  
I can't stop myself from being drawn to navy and stripes.  
It's becoming an issue.

What do you think about the scarf?  I thought the dress needed a little pop of color.  That combined with my less than photogenic hair  created this sassy little number.
Needless to say the girls couldn't stop laughing at me as I modeled this one.

Thanks Crowdtap and Old Navy!  
We love our free sunglasses, flip-flops, beach bags and beach towels!
