I hope everyone has a wonderful day celebrating with family and loved ones today!
Rockport has added so many great styles for spring, all of which incorporate ADIPRENE by adidas comfort technology. This highly shock-absorbent cushioning protects the heel at impact to help reduce foot and leg fatigue.
I chose the “Emmalina 2 Band Sling” (in a warm taupe color) which is a versatile 70 mm women’s wedge sandal that is perfect for both casual and dressy occasions.
I absolutely LOVE how comfortable they are even when you wear them over a long period of time. Not only do these have the ADIPRENE by adidas comfort technologybut they also have ADIPRENE+ by adidas sport technology which is resilient forefoot cushioning which provides a responsive, dynamic push-off.
Normally I don’t wear heels when I know I will be standing or walking for a long period of time because of how painful heels become over time but I don’t have to worry about that with these sandals. I really like that these shoes were the size that I expected them to be. I know that may sound silly but so many times when I have gotten shoes online without benig able to try them on and they have been way too small and I have to end up giving them to my daughter Kaley (of course she never minds that). I honestly am so happy with these shoes and they are definitely my favorite pair in my closet now.
Whether you get these shoes for yourself or plan to buy some for ”mom” as a gift for Mother’s Day, you are sure to be very happy with your purchase!

I received this cookbook and was shocked at how nice it is. This 336 page book not only has recipes, but it has a section with cooking principles and techniques which is great for those new to cooking. I love the section on stocks, flavored oils and vinaigrettes. Also the section on sauces and condiments will be used a lot. The second half of this book is divided into Soups, Cold Starters, Warm Starters, Salads, Fish Dishes, Meat Dishes, Sides and Vegetable Dishes and Desserts.
Guess what section is my favorite?!?!
The pictures in this cookbook are truly beautiful and they really make you want to make all the recipes in the book.

Marshmallow Fun Company carries the coolest products to shoot and blast marshmallows. I was sent the Classic Double Barrel Shooter. This clever, pump-action device fires miniature marshmallows approximately 30 to 40 feet on a line. This shooter has two barrels that hold 25 marshmallows each and is top-rack, dishwasher safe to clean. Designed with kids in mind, the Double Barrel Shooter is fun for all ages and provides a soft, hearty laugh on impact.
If you have an Instagram account, you can check out the video my daughter put on her Instagram page of me shooting Kyle with marshmallows (I was trying to get them in his mouth lol) GO HERE
You can use any brand of mini marshmallow in the shooter but if you get a bag that has really sticky marshmallows in it just add 1 table spoon of cornstarch to coat them before loading. If you are ordering a shooter as a gift for someone, you can even order a bag of mini marshmallows from their site so the recipient can start playing right away.
If you don’t want to shop online, you can find a store that sells Marshmallowville products near you HERE (stores like Target, Bass ProShop, Bed Bath and Beyond, ToysRUs, Amazon and more).
Make sure you Follow Marshmallow_Fun on Twitter and Like MarshmallowFun on Facebook to keep up with all the latest products and promotions. Plus check out all the cool photos on the Marshmallow_Fun Instagram page and MarshmallowFun Pinterest page.
