Brita Longlast Pitcher

This post is sponsored by Brita, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. 2,000 plastic water bottles are used every second in the US. Let that sink in. Drinking water is really the ultimate healthy choice, yet it is one that is trashing our planet. Plastic water bottles take 450 years to decompose and by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the…

Eagle Ridge Resort: a home away from home

February 5, 2019
Eagle Ridge Resort Galena, IL

Thank you to Eagle Ridge Resort for the stay at your resort. All thoughts and opinions are my own.  After a long holiday season, I knew I wanted to set up something fun to celebrate Jason’s birthday. The holidays are always exhausting, but with everything else we had going on this year: our miscarriage over Christmas and New Year’s, tons of showings on our house, then selling it…

Happy Tot Super Morning Bowl

This post is sponsored by Happy Family but the content and opinions expressed here are my own. As you know, we’ve been quite busy these past month. We’re currently traveling and it’s been a bit of a whirlwind.

One Pot Unstuffed Green Pepper Recipe | Happily Trista Blog

Unstuffed Green Peppers are my favorite cold weather dish! It’s probably the only dish I make consistently that I don’t mess, because, well, we know how much I look to cook. When I first started making this dish, it was traditional Stuffed Green Peppers and it takes about an hour longer than making them “unstuffed”. But, then I became a mom and had much less time to dedicate…
