Raise Awareness for Homeless Youth (and make my cousin sleep in the cold)

ecyehitscoldWhy am I standing out in the cold, wrapped in a blanket, and taking pictures of myself? It’s definitely NOT because I love being out in the cold, but it is for a good cause believe me! My cousin Sonia (ok, technically she is married to my cousin but I’m not sure what you call that – cousin-in-law? once removed? she’s good people so I just refer to her as my cousin) works for Education for Children and Youth Experiencing Homelessness (ECYEH) an organization that makes sure that school aged homeless youth do not fall through the cracks when it comes to getting educated.

Sonia gives her heart and soul to her job and always goes waaaaay above and beyond what anyone would ever expect of her and is always coming up with creative ideas to help bring awareness to her organization. Her latest awareness campaign will have her out in the cold for sure.

For every person who uploads a selfie of themselves outside with a blanket or sleeping bag and tags it with the hashtag #ECYEHitscold, Sonia will spend a minute sleeping outside in the cold. So that means she will spend an hour outside for every 60 selfies that are uploaded. (Make sure you tag ECYEH so they definitely see it and add it to the tally.)  You can upload it to ECYEH’s Facebook page, to Twitter with a tag to @ECYEHREG3 or Instagram with a tag to @ECYEHREG3.

And while you’re at it, how about giving their Facebook page a like and following them on Twitter and Instagram?  I mean, you don’t want to miss the updates of Sonia snoring in the cold, right??

 How you can participate:

1) Snap a selfie of yourself out in the cold in a sleeping bag or blanket.

2) Upload your selfie to Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram with the hashtag #ECYEHitscold.

3) Be sure to tag ECYEH so they can count your selfie towards Sonia’s time.

Omaha Steaks Review – #OmahaSteaksGifts

I've talked about how much I like going out to eat, but there are sometimes when I want to have a really nice meal at home. You know what I mean, a restaurant-quality meal without doing take out or going out. That means I would have to make it and, for me, that can be a bit of a challenge. Luckily, Omaha Steaks makes it super easy! As much as I like going out to eat, if the weather is bad I am going to want to stay put at home.

OshKosh B’gosh #GiveHappy

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’gosh. I received product samples to facilitate my review. We've loved OshKosh B'gosh clothing for years and always made the somewhat long trek to their stores either in Kenosha or Johnson's Creek (pretty much an hour each way for either location). Knowing we were sure to find clothes that Josh likes at fabulous prices made it worth it every time. Lucky for us, OshKosh B'gosh recently opened a new ... read more

What Should You Do if You Are in an Accident?

Here in Wisconsin, we have been enduring snow on top of the crazy cold and wind chill temps. Unfortunately, when the temperature dips this low, salt is relatively ineffective on roads and walkways. As you can imagine, this has resulted in lots of car crashes and accidents on highways and back-roads. Last year, we had […]
