The Milo’s Kitchen Treat Truck is trekking across the U.S.A.! I want to help celebrate by telling you where you can find it, and giving YOU the opportunity to win a Milo’s Kitchen Prize Pack with three bags of Milo’s Kitchen treats and a $25 prepaid Visa card! You’ll also want to know when the truck is headed your way, because they’re going to be giving stuff away as well!!

As a dog mom and petsitter, I know the importance of food motivation for training. Also, I know of the importance of having quality treats that are made in the U.S.A. Milo’s Kitchen provides both! These soft, delicious (according to my Sebastian!) treats are made in the U.S.A.!!

This Milo's Kitchen burger looks pretty tempting to Sebastian.

This Milo’s Kitchen burger looks pretty tempting to Sebastian.

In early 2014, Milo’s Kitchen announced it was no longer going to include -any- ingredients from China, and have all meat in its treats from the United States. “We’re not bringing the products with ingredients sourced from China back,” said Geoff Tanner, vice president of pet snacks for Milo’s Kitchen. Instead, the company decided to reformulate the products and source 100 percent of its meat from the United States, exiting China completely. “The brand Milo’s Kitchen is a brand that’s grounded in a philosophy that the dog is an equal member of the family and deserves ingredients that are as good as our own food.”

This puts me at ease, as I and any dog owner know of the issues involving pet foods manufactured in China. They listened to consumer concerns and the treats are essentially “homemade.”

My Sebastian LOVES these treats! He can sniff them from the other end of the house and they are very helpful when reinforcing good manners. Check out this video of him waiting very patiently for his treat!

I also love that meat is the first ingredient in all their treats! Sebastian sometimes has horrible reactions to corn-based products, so I try to get him the best products for his needs.

You can experience Milo’s yourself on the Milo’s Kitchen Treat Truck tour! The truck has been traveling across the country this summer to hand out product samples, have giveaways and even take family pictures with your special ones! I’m very excited that the Milo’s Kitchen Treat Truck is coming to northwest Arkansas! It will be in Fayetteville Friday, August 29 and will be at the Bentonville Bark Park on Saturday, August 30! I can’t wait to see what all they have to offer, and I’ll be back here after my experience to tell you all about it!

And now, the giveaway! You don’t want to miss out on this amazing prize package! To enter, just fill out the form below. Good luck and keep yourself and your furry ones healthy and happy!

Depression sucks. I’m pretty sure any of you who have paid attention to the news in the past week are well aware of this. It can happen to many folks who have many friends and are seen as sweet, funny, entertaining, awesome – you name it.

I have depression. Usually moderate, but that depression has hit in a different way over the past two weeks. The thing about depression is that people think it usually is just this overwhelming fear of sadness – but depression can manifest itself in other ways. One of these ways is apathy toward general, everyday activities.

I call it a funk. You can call it I-don’t-give-a-cluck syndrome. You lose interest in the things that normally should bring you joy. You suddenly don’t care about deadlines, you frequently miss out on opportunities, your work productivity can completely sink. Just like that.

The greater part of the last two weeks has been spent in my bed, usually watching some gawd-awful public domain movie from the 70s on Youtube, completely ignoring everyday tasks, and sleeping. A whole lot of sleeping.

It took about a week to acknowledge that it was depression. Undoubtedly the death of Robin Williams made it that much worse for me. Often depression can be triggered by people who just don’t understand depression, think it’s all a matter of choice, that you can just jump back on that saddle and ride again.

But it’s not that way. And depression isn’t always about crying or sadness; I haven’t really felt sad this month, just apathetic, tired, unproductive. I cried for a couple of days when Williams passed away – not only because he was so beloved, but because I often understand what people who experience depression go through, and how hard it is.

But I don’t want to take a celebrity death and hijack this post with it. I just felt the need to publicly get out the word that sometimes things just aren’t perfect. Sometimes even the most mundane tasks just seem like so much to do. And sometimes this “funk” can just hit you when you are in the midst of high energy and productivity. Kind of a crash-and-burn thing.

The best thing I can recommend is to acknowledge these things, tell a few people you trust that you are experiencing it, and draw on support wherever you can. I go to therapy every month or two to help sort things out.

I am trying to crawl back into the swing of things here on the website so I can continue to be what I am first and foremost: A storyteller. Just bear with me here. Hopefully this will give me a little oomph.

Have you ever experienced The Funk of depression? What do you do to work things out?

Nature’s Sleep provided me with product for this review and giveaway. All opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links and I will make a commission if you make a purchase through these links.

Nature’s Sleep and I want to give you a pair of comfy, cozy Nature’s Sleep Memory Foam Slippers! I love these, and they have honestly made me fall in love with slippers again. Not too warm, not too noisy – just perfect and like walking on cushy goodness all the time. These are valued at $25 and I promise you will love them! Check out my review and then see how you can win a pair of your own!

IMG_20140718_153905

Nature’s Sleep sent me these lovely open-toe memory foam slippers in lavender. These slippers come in a number of colors - open- and closed-toe, and are very reminiscent of the foam slippers my mom used to get me when I was growing up. Only BETTER. In addition to having that nice, fuzzy terry-cloth exterior, The memory foam inside conforms to my fallen arches, making them really comfortable for patting around the house and to the mailbox.

20140723_112738

When you try these out with your hands, you can see how spongy the memory foam is inside. I don’t know what your experience with memory foam may be, but I have found many memory foam products to be extremely painful, as they tend to stay in the area where pressure is applied, without really offering any pressure back – and thus not providing any support. This is not the case here! By not simply conforming to your feet, these also are strong enough to provide the support you need. That makes a huge difference!

IMG_20140723_112506

Check out how thick that memory foam pad inside is. Most slippers offer very, very little support for your poor feet. I have foot problems on both sides of my family, and this is just not something I can allow for my tootsies!

The slippers also have a sturdy rubber sole, which makes them very slip-resistant and easy to walk in whether you’re in the bathroom, the kitchen or walking over to a neighbor’s house.

20140723_112807

I cannot tell you enough about my happy feet! I want to get these for everyone I know!

IMG_20140723_111924

But alas, I only have one pair to give away! Just follow the instructions in the form below for a chance to win a pair of your own!

Have you tried the Stoli Lemonade yet? It’s the must-have drink of the season, according to Stoli Vodka. This summer, to celebrate what they’re calling 100 Days to Squeeze, Stoli is headed out in a Limo-nade truck for 300 managed bar nights in 12 cities across the country! There, you’ll get to try out Stoli Lemonade cocktails, try out some refreshing Lemonade ice pops, and you can even take part in fun challenges to win Stoli prizes!

 photo Stoli_600360_4_zps6e422e83.jpg

Cities on the tour include Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, New York and New Jersey.

Even if it isn’t coming to a bar near you, you can still participate in 100 Days to Squeeze right at your home. You can make your own Stoli Lemonade with the help of special Value Added Packs from Stoli that include a 750ml of Stoli vodka, a glass mason jar and a lemon squeezer to make it easy to serve your own cocktails this summer.

And here’s the recipe!

- 2 parts Stolichnaya® Vodka

- 4 parts lemonade

- Build in an ice-filled Mason jar or highball glass and stir. Garnish with lemon wheels.

The smooth grain taste of Stoli pairs perfectly with the tart and sweet notes of a crisp, cold lemonade. You can make it with either Stoli Premium Vodka, or one of the Stoli flavors for an added twist.

Squeeze the most out of summer and head to Thrillist or Join Stoli on Facebook to find out more about 100 Days to Squeeze! You can also Follow Stoli on Twitter for details on the #StoliLemonade trucks. Share your summer moments using #StoliLemonade on Twitter and Instagram.
