Build A Better Lunch

Monday, August 19th, 2013

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group®, Rubbermaid, Jif, and Smucker’s, but all my opinions are my own. #aBetterLunch #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO

Last week the kids and I decided to fit in another adventure before the summer ended, so we packed a lunch and headed off the the Connecticut Science Center in Hartford. Right after we walked in to pay for our tickets I decided it was another place we NEEDED to be members. It’s less than an hour from the house, all inside (winter is coming!), and totally kid-friendly. Absolutely worth the price of a year’s membership, especially because they offer a military discount. Besides, we brought our own packed lunch so once we were in the rest of our day was free. Free is my favorite.

I keep thinking there’s just one week left in August and I have way too much to do, but there are TWO weeks left in August…and I still have way too much to do. Well, no, not too much. I can never, ever get too much photography work and I’m super excited I have some shoots lined up already.

So excited I MIGHT have just ordered myself my dream camera. Now I have 6 months to pay for it. Please forgive me if there are a few extra sponsored posts next month – dreams are pretty expensive and I’m determined to finance mine on my own, without using the family (husband-earned) money.
