Having friends and family over for a fun barbecue on a summer day takes a lot of thought and preparation! You have to come up a with a menu, buy all the food and drinks, pick-up the backyard and clean the house, plus get all the fun items like games, music and decorations. I'm exhausted just thinking about it! Thankfully, ASUS and Intel have a way to lessen the stress of throwing a summer barbecue party by planning with their MeMO Pad 7! 


Imagine all of the recipes you can find using the MeMO Pad 7! With the power of Intel and its lightening speed, you can quickly look up new recipes that your guests will love!

The speakers on the MeMO Pad 7 are really great! You can save money that you would have spent on a DJ and can easily display the tablet outside where the party is at, blasting music clearly! Everyone will enjoy the tunes!


One of the best features (I think) this tablet has is its camera! The pixels are great and it has both a rear and front camera so you can take selfies at your barbecue, while also taking great photos to have memories last forever! Once you take photos with your MeMO Pad 7 you can easily upload them to Instagram and other social media networks to share with all your friends!

Breyers All Natural Vanilla Ice Cream {Review}


*I received free product coupons to purchase Breyers Ice Cream, to facilitate my review. No monetary compensation was received. All opinions are my own and were not influenced.

My family loves ice cream-- we eat ice cream year round, but over the Summer we definitely eat a lot more of it! When it comes to buying ice cream, we have to be more cautious because a lot of ice cream is not safe for out peanut allergy daughter (every flavor is "made in the same facility or near peanuts"). Breyers ice cream is one brand that we have found that has non-peanut flavors that are safe for our daughter to eat. 

We were given a chance to review Breyers ice cream, so we chose the flavors Natural Vanilla and the new Girls Scouts Samoas.


The Natural Vanilla is super yummy! It's made with five simple ingredients including fresh cream, rich milk, fine sugar and real vanilla bean specks. We have been enjoying it with chocolate syrup and sprinkles, but I know it would taste amazing on warm apple pie, or even cherry/peach cobbler!!


As soon as my husband saw the Girl Scouts Samoas ice cream, his eyes widened and he grabbed it! Who doesn't love Girl Scout cookies?! This particular Girl Scout cookie is my husband's favorite and I really enjoy it too, so we the ice cream a try. It's loaded with big Samoas cookie chunks and is very creamy. We have really been enjoying it!

Breyers has so many ice cream flavors, including special ones like Carb Smart, 1/2 the Fat, Fat Free, No Added Sugar and Gelato! Be sure to check out all the yummy flavors at your local grocer next time you are there!
