Tomorrow I'm starting +Jenny Craig. I'm telling myself this is just like the Hollywood meal delivery services. http://aparentinamerica.com/2015/08/26/starting-jenny-craig-the-happy-before/ I'm like J. Lo getting ready for her scenes with George Clooney in Out of Sight 2. Right? #JennyCraigMoment
I was provided a free trial Jenny Craig program and meals. However, the opinions expressed are entirely my own. I have been having a completely awesome summer. But with the vacations, getaways, get togethers and celebrations have come some unwelcome souvenirs of good living: Extra pounds.

Giveaway: 5 Winners! I am loving the Scandi-style of the kids' and women's clothes from +finside & +finkid & I am excited to host a   #giveaway  for you! Let's get some of these adorable pieces in your kids' closets. :) http://aparentinamerica.com/2015/06/18/giveaways-finkid-and-finside-cool-outerwear-for-kids-and-women-lots-of-prizes-lots-of-winners/
Getting dressed should always be fun, and my kids yearn for comical, quirky touches to their clothing. When I showed Alice this adorable soft jacket from Scandinavian clothing sensation finkid, she exclaimed, “I will look like a little gnome!” And with that charming garden gnome-inspired detail, ...

My carry-on only spring travel packing guide! 
http://aparentinamerica.com/2015/05/28/packing-for-ireland-in-spring/
Packing Essentials for a Week in Ireland. My husband Chris and I just returned from a dream of a visit to Ireland. Our first week long trip sans kids since our honeymoon 13 years ago, and our first time leaving the country in ages, this voyage was for us a very big deal.

Have you ever had a manicurist come to your home? First timer who is now obsessed. The price is the same as going to the salon when using the DC area's new biz BeautyinaBeat.com. This is not sponsored but OMG so convenient I feel like sharing with all the busy women I know! http://aparentinsilverspring.com/2015/05/dc-in-home-beauty-service-beauty-in-a-beat.html #BIABatmydoor

My kids were some of the first kids to try out the new Terrapin Explorers course for kids age 5-9. They were dazzled by the experience. Both of my kids are a little tentative when it comes to heights and risks, but the gentle, confident, plentiful staff members are with the children every step of the way. Knowing they had constant support made all the difference to Charlie and Eve, and gave them the confidence to walk tightropes, cross swinging bridges, crawl through suspended tunnels and even zip line. The course has two levels, accessed by the decks of a wooden tree house home base. There are 22 elements for the kids to conquer. There is a great viewing area for parents. My kids also had a great time on the outdoor climbing wall. Children are completely and safely supported through harnesses, helmets and many safety procedures. I think it would be a fun kids' birthday party.
