the way to my heart.. coffee! feat. the keurig k-duo essentials

the way to my heart.. coffee! feat. the keurig k-duo essentials

9.15.2019



If you know anything about me, you know that I absolutely LOVE my coffee! If you're new, well.. now you know. I drink coffee when I wake up in the morning, during the middle of the day, sometimes even as a treat before I go to bed.. definitely multiple cups if I have homework due! So when Moms Meet gave me the opportunity to try out the new Keurig® K-Duo Essentials™ Coffee Maker, I jumped at the chance! I love Keurig products and have been using them ever since I received my first Keurig as a wedding present. I had never heard of this specific edition, but one look and I knew it was perfect for our family. 



My husband (and sometimes my mom) love coffee from a coffee pot. They're extremely picky. I've had to keep a traditional coffee maker in the house just for them and it took up entirely too much space in my kitchen. I didn't want to leave it out, but I also didn't have the cabinet space to put it away when they weren't using it. Enter the Keurig K-Duo Essentials! This is literally what dreams are made of. I get my super quick and easy K-Cup® pods and they still get the coffee they love in their coffee pot. I love the options that this coffee maker gives us. For my cups, I can choose an 8, 10, or 12 oz. cup of coffee. Did I mention it's travel mug friendly? If anyone in the house wants to make a pot of coffee, the carafe options include 8, 10, or 12 cups.



The K-Duo Essentials has so many features that make it a game changer in my opinion. Upgrading to this from my last Keurig, the large water reservoir is a great option. It has 60 oz. single reservoir that is used for both the single serve and carafe brewing. There is also an auto-off feature for both the brewer and the heating plate, making it energy efficient. The Smart Start feature is great, allowing the coffee maker to heat and brew all in one simple process. Features like these are what makes this coffee maker the perfect product for simplifying your morning routine and saving you time (and money)! Speaking about money, the Keurig K-Duo Essentials is only $99!! Sold.

Our family was long overdue for a vacation, so we decided what better place to spend our summer than Great Wolf Lodge in Anaheim. With their brand new Summer Camp-In celebration, it combined everything we love - camping, waterslides, and hotel life (that one is mommy's favorite)! While we went when the weather was beautiful, I love that the Great Wolf Lodge summer camp-in experience is WEATHERPROOF. 


These girls were so excited for our adventure that they didn't even want to sleep. On the night we arrived, we walked in to see that the resort was fully decorated with the summer camp theme in mind. Checking in was a breeze and I love that they give each guest a pair of wolf ears! While the girls were sleeping, I checked out the schedule of events for the next day. From pool parties to campfire ceremonies, the Summer Camp-In event was jam-packed with activities!
The food was absolutely delicious! The character breakfast was definitely one of the best parts for my girls. They loved getting to meet the characters that represent Great Wolf Lodge. Wiley the Wolf and his friends visited every table, taking pictures with all of the kids. The buffet was perfect and a nap was 100% needed after all of the waffles, cinnamon rolls, and bacon that we ate! I wish I would have taken a picture of the BBQ that we had for lunch, but I honestly started digging into my plate as soon as they put it on the table. 

As a girl who loves her Cherry Coke, I love that Coca-Cola® products were so easy to find at Great Wolf Lodge. I didn't have to worry about what drink I was going to order at lunch or dinner because I knew that my favorites were there! When we were enjoying the waterslides, I found this Coca-Cola display and fell in love! Something about it just felt like the perfect "classic summertime" setting and I am so here for it.
There are so many fun activities going on during the Summer Camp-In celebration, but there is still so much more to do at Great Wolf Lodge. They have a huge arcade, a bowling alley, miniature golf, and so much more. They even have a Build-A-Bear Workshop that offers the same characters that our little ones met at breakfast! Marin was so excited to bring home her very own Violet. MagiQuest was another family favorite, which is Great Wolf Lodge's exclusive interactive adventure game involving mystical wands. These were seriously the coolest, we were running around the entire resort with them!


When it was time to relax and get ready for bed, families gathered by the fire. Wiley the Wolf and friends put on a fabulous show, full of fun stories and songs. If you have ever been to summer camp, this would bring back the best of memories. I loved being able to sit back and watch my children as they experienced this, something that I think they will remember for years to come. Once the stories were over, it was time for one last delicious treat..


S'MORES!!! The special s'mores dessert bar did not disappoint! Great Wolf Lodge's master s'moreliers paired a variety of marshmallow flavors with different toppings for the ultimate s'mores experience. My little ones loved their creations, while I opted for the classic s'more and I had to stop myself from eating them all! After dessert, we went back up to the room and cozied up. We were even able to set up bedtime stories, which was super cute and the girls loved every second. 



Our family had a magical time at Great Wolf Lodge. Their Summer Camp-In celebration was something that we loved being able to experience as a family. If you're looking for something more than your average waterpark, we highly recommend Great Wolf Lodge! We left the resort with smiles on our faces and glitter tattoos on our arms (except for Camille, her tattoo was on her leg). The fun continues, with the summer camp themed festivities continuing until Labor Day weekend. Click here to visit a Great Wolf Lodge near you and #CampGreatWolfwithCoke !

summer memories with canon ivy cliq

summer memories with canon ivy cliq

I am someone who always loves trying out new technology. So when I had the chance to check out the NEW Canon IVY CLIQ Instant Print Camera, I obviously couldn't say yes fast enough! This camera has been so fun to play around with and the fact that the pictures become stickers is EVERYTHING! My planner is about to be on another level with all of these pictures!



I feel like this camera is the perfect summer accessory. The CLIQ comes in four colors - Seaside Blue, Bumble Bee Yellow, Lady Bug Red and Mint Green (which is the one that I have). It comes complete with a "Selfie Mirror," so it is perfect for getting those quick pics without asking "can you take this?" The fact that this camera can fit in your pocket makes it an easy grab for any trip. Another thing that I love about the CLIQ is that it has a MicroSD card slot, so I can save all of the pictures that I take (I seriously save EVERYTHING).


Everything that you need to get started with the Canon IVY CLIQ is included in the box, so you can get right to enjoying the world of instant photography. Inside the box is the Canon IVY CLIQ Instant Film Camera, a ZINK photo paper pack (10 sheets and one smart sheet), a micro-USB cable, wrist strap, quick start guide, and warranty sheet. Like I mentioned above, I am obsessed with this because of the fact that these photos are PEEL-AND-STICK! Yes! Your very own 2x3" sticker maker, so you can imagine how much fun I am having with this thing.



Canon also released the IVY CLIQ +, which has some exciting upgrades. I didn't get to test this one out, but I am seriously considering buying myself one as a late "graduation present" because these cameras are so cool. The CLIQ+ can also connect to your smartphone, allowing you to print pictures from your phone. It also comes in different colors, including ROSE GOLD! Last feature, I promise, it also has a ring light.. A RING LIGHT! Seriously, Canon is doing it and I am here for it.
