Nestlé Pure Life+ Adds That Something Extra to My Daily Routine

This post is sponsored by Nestlé® Pure Life®+ but the content and opinions expressed here are my own If you're anything like me, your exercise routine of late has consisted of lifting the TV remote and stuffing pizza into your mouth. But with the weather warming up, I've started  enjoying the great outdoors. And I'm happy to say that Nestlé® Pure Life®+ is playing a big part in my everyday  routine. I'm not a runner at all, but I did promise my wife that this year's goal would be to successfully run a 5k. Who knew that meant running for three whole miles? (Nobody told me there'd be math!) Thankfully, I believe in ...

MakeItCount™ at the Gas Pump + $50 Marathon Gift Card Giveaway

This rewarding post was brought to you by Marathon as part of an online campaign. While I was compensated for writing it, all thoughts and opinions expressed in this post are my own. Yep, over 35 years later, I still have my original Boba Fett action figure! Now, that's loyalty. I've always been a huge fan of reward programs. When I was little, I remember cutting out the little proof of purchase symbols on the packaging of my Star Wars action figures. Once I collected enough, I could mail them in and about 6 to 8 weeks later, an exclusive figure would show up in my mailbox. I'll never forget the feeling ...

SCOOB! Blu-ray Combo Pack Giveaway

Zoinks! Yes, like many impressionable young children, I grew up watching Scooby-Doo on TV. And besides learning the advantages of working as a team and the benefits of persistence in solving mysteries, I learned the true value of friendship. Shaggy and Scooby-Doo were inseparable pals. They may have been a bunch of bumbling scaredy cats, but they also supported each other no matter what. And they also ate. A lot. I always wonder what a Scooby Snack tasted like. I remember so many great episodes, particularly the ones with "guest stars" like Batman and Robin! Yep, Scooby Doo and the gang were my weekend buddies growing up. So I'm happy to see that the ...

Celebrate Father’s Day with the Father of Marvel Comics: Stan Lee

I bought myself an early Father's Day present. Yep, when I saw the new Marvel Legends Stan Lee action figure, I knew it had to be mine. My home office is cluttered (I mean that in the most complimentary way!) with all sorts of action figures, Legos, statues and more based on comic books, Star Wars, cartoons and pop culture. From Captain America to Danger Mouse to Mr. T to even Kool-Aid Man, I like to surround myself with lots of friends. I haven't bought as many action figures as I used to, mainly because they're fairly expensive and I guess I'd rather send my kids to college than complete the latest collection of ...
