I have to pack 4 lunches everyday. Three of them are easy as they are my children’s lunches and have their favorites. My husband’s lunch is a bit more tricky. He likes to mix it up as much as he can. Different lunch meats and sides every few days.

We got to try Hormel’s Natural Choice Flame Seared Ham. My husband loved it. He said that it tasted more fresh than other lunch meats and had a lot of flavor. This is his new favorite meat now, so I will be looking for it in stores.

The varieties include:

  • Flame Seared Ham
  • Flame Seared Herb Turkey
  • Flame Seared Honey Ham
  • Flame Seared Turkey

I haven’t been able to find them in stores near me, but I hope to find them soon.

 

What variety are you interested in trying?

We go back to school in 2 weeks and I am excited to get back into a routine with the kids. My kids prefer packed lunches to school lunches. They say that sometimes they don’t like what is provided or they don’t have enough time to eat.

Hormel REV Wraps are real meat and real cheese all wrapped into one delicious wrap. There are tons of varieties to choose from:

  • Pepperoni Pizza
  • Ham and Cheese
  • Peppered Turkey
  • Three Meat Pizza
  • Italian Style
  • Spicy Italian Style
  • Ham and Swiss
  • Turkey and Cheese
  • Ham, Pepperoni, and Mozzarella
  • Turkey, Ham and Cheese
  • Bacon Club
  • Turkey Bacon Ranch
  • Buffalo Chicken
  • Jalapeno Pepperoni

My favorite is Pepperoni Pizza, and my kids love it too. They have actually been asking for me to buy more for lunches.   It would be so much easier in the morning as it is already packaged and ready to go.

Embassy Suites Is A Family Friendly Hotel #EmbassySuites

This past weekend we were given a complimentary stay at the Embassy Suites hotel In Buffalo NY.

When we first arrived I was amazed at how big and beautiful the hotel was.

When we first checked in there was a bit of confusion as a guest had a last name similar to mine and the room were mixed up. We got it all sorted out though and walked into the biggest hotel room I have ever seen. It was complete suite with a separate bedroom, and living room, a big bathroom and a kitchenette complete with a mini fridge and microwave. Plus the views from the 6th floor were amazing.

The first thing my kids wanted to do when we arrived was swim. The Embassy Suites has a indoor pool and spa. My kids loved it.

When we came back from the pool, we were pleasantly surprised with some goodies the hotel staff had left us for the room mix up with a lovely note.

Embassy Suites has a complimentary breakfast, and if you stay in a suite you can get made to order breakfast. Either way the breakfast is delicious and very kid friendly. They had things like cereal, eggs, sausage, and other things.

My kids thoughts on the hotel:

Hotel Room Tour:

There are so many kid friendly things to do around Embassy Suites Buffalo. The waterfront and Naval yard are only a few short miles.

IMG_0759

There is the Buffalo Zoo, they also have a baby Rhino and Baby Gorilla.

IMG_0748

Niagara Falls is only 30-45 minutes away and is a must see, if you are in the area.

Buffalo is known as the home of the orginal Buffalo wings, the Anchor Bar and Duffs are in the area and a great place to try for lunch and dinner.

I would definitely recommend staying here when you travel to Buffalo.

Have you ever stayed at a Embassy Suites? What are your thoughts.

I Hate The Dentist

Yes, there I said it.

I hate the dentist and as i get older it just makes it worse. I have had dental problems for as long as I can remember. With all the work I have had done over the years, just doesn’t mean anything. My cavities break or my former dentist didn’t do them right etc.

So now I am on another road of getting dental work done, and honestly the hardest part for me is the shot. I hate it and it hurts more than any other shot I have every had.

So to ease my pain and yours, here is a funny dental selfie.
