V8 VegOut Dares you to try something new!

First I have to say a huge thank you to V8 for sponsoring today’s conversation and daring me to try something new. I have to confess that I am not very daring at times when it comes to branching out and trying new veggies.

I tend to stick to my core veggies and wrinkle my nose and shrug when offered any new types of veggies. V8 is daring each of us to VegOut! and try something new. V8 is posting daily challenges and invite each of us to take the VegOut Challenge! For more than 80 years V8 has celebrated the goodness of vegetables and fruits and they want the world to know and join their mission.

Will you join me in the VegOut Challenge?


V8 is daring us to take this challenge and well I never could say no to a dare. So here it goes!

Here are a few of the challenges we can take………..

Traveling with Poise

I recently learned that 1 in 3 women suffer from LBL (Light Bladder Leakage). Many thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s conversation and sharing information on Light Bladder Leakage with me.

This is not a subject that comes up in conversation often yet it is something that affects 33% of woman! I thought it was important to talk about Poise Microliners and how traveling with Poise can make travel just a little bit easier.

You know those moments when the captain comes over the speaker and says that he would like everyone to sit down and make sure they have their seat belts on due to turbulence…yep perfect Poise Microliner moment.

Those moments when the seatbelt sign is on for so long that you think you are going to pretzel your legs because you just need to gooooooooooo

Those moments when the next rest area seems like it is 10000000 miles away and you are praying it is around the corner

Those moments when you are laughing so hard that you get a surprise

Those moments when you are running down the beach or running for the train before it leaves

Each of these moments can be amazing and frightening to say the least. The last thing any of us want is to have to worry about light bladder leakage while traveling. There is enough craziness that comes with travel why add one more thing to it.

Poise Microliners

Poise Microliners are shockingly thin and surprisingly absorbent liners that feature SAM (Super Absorbent Material) to provide discreet Light Bladder Leakage (LBL) protection that helps keep you dry and comfortable all day long so you can manage life’s little leaks with confidence. Poise Microliners are the thinnest liners in the light incontinence category and are designed to absorb wetness, neutralize odor and stay three times drier than period liners….

St Regis Monarch Beach California

During the Kia Cali event I had the opportunity to stay at the St Regis Monarch Beach California and it was amazing. From the moment I arrived at the St. Regis I was blown away with the service, style and comfort this resort offers.


From the moment you pull up to the main entrance of the hotel you are whisked into complete luxury. The front desk attendant greets you with white gloves and helps make sure you are properly taken care of. The luggage attendant quickly attends to your baggage and guides you to your room….

Oven Dried Apple Rings

I love fall here in the Northwest!! Being close to so many farms we are able to get some great deals on fall fruits, including local apples! I love to make Apple Rings  with apples from the local farms. Paying for apple rings in the store is expensive but its a frugal and easy treat to make at home!  I have sent these to work with John and he loves them!
