Food for summer! Applebee's Big Bold Grill Combos

My family was treated to a complimentary meal at our local Applebee's in the metro Atlanta area so we could share our experience with the new Big and Bold Grill Combos. All opinions are 100% mine. 


Summertime food... grilled, fresh, and flavorful. I enjoy eating out with my family, and we had a great experience tasting the Big and Bold Grill Combos at Applebee's Neighborhood Grill & Bar®. These combos are priced well and offer a lot of selection. The Applebee's Big and Bold Grill Combos start at $12.99 and diners can choose from various combinations of two grilled entrees and two sides. 


I had the honey BBQ half rack of ribs and grilled chicken with pico de gallo.  The ribs were tender and the sauce had just the right amount of smoky flavor and sweetness. I paired my entrees with the new Applebee's garlicky bacon green beans - which I really enjoyed. Who doesn't like veggies with bacon?! I also complimented my meal with a hot basket of french fries. The meal was large and the variety of flavors worked together well.

A royal birthday celebration at Medieval Times

My family received complimentary tickets and royalty upgrade for the purposes of this review. All opinions are 100% mine. 


Have you ever dined while watching an epic battle with fantastic horsemanship, shining armor, and sparks flying? Medieval Times dinner and show offers just that. 


My family visited the Medieval Times Atlanta castle (in Lawrenceville, GA) this past weekend. It happened to be our spring break and my daughter's 9th birthday. We had the royalty upgrade, which allowed us to skip the line at the entrance and gave us some perks for showtime. Each member of our party received a cheering banner, a knight's rally towel, a VIP lanyard, early entrance to our seats, and VIP seating. I think this upgrade is really worth it. If you are going to Medieval Times, make it even better with an upgrade package. I also added on a birthday scroll and announcement for our birthday girl. She was thrilled to hear her name called during the show and her personalized scroll made her an official guest of the kingdom!

Safest SUVs and Family Cars for 2017

This is a sponsored post brought to you by Blue Springs Ford 

Family vehicles for 2017 


Year after year, family cars are becoming safer. The IIHS tests all family vehicles with a barrage of crash tests and considers the advanced safety features that can be purchased to offer Top Safety Pick+ ratings. In 2015, there were 33 cars awarded the Top Safety Pick+ designation, and in 2016 this jumped to 50 cars.

Ford did particularly well, with the mighty Ford F-150 being one of the vehicles awarded a Top Safety Pick+ for “Large Pickups”. It’s important to note too that crash tests have been steadily getting harder, so this is no mean feat.

So, when looking to purchase a safe family vehicle in 2017, you’re spoiled for choice. We’ve put together a list of some of the safest vehicles available to you today, independently tested by the IIHS and the NHTSA.

1 - 2017 Ford Fusion 

The first 2017 midsize sedan to be awarded the Top Safety Pick+ denomination, the 2017 Ford Fusion can be equipped with a front crash prevention system that has been rated as ‘Superior” by the IIHS. It also managed to ace all crash tests, getting the highest possible score. This beats its high score from last year and sees the 2017 Ford Fusion as a top choice for families looking for a midsize sedan.

2 – 2017 Kia Sorento 

Midsize SUVs are highly popular with families in 2017, and the Kia Sorento is a good choice if you’re looking for one of the safest out there. It got the highest possible score in IIHS testing when the optional front crash prevention system is included. Starting at around $25,000, it’s not too hard on the wallet, either.
