In a house with 5 kids and a dog, I am all about things that keep the home and the people in it smelling good. An invitation to join the Bath & Body Works Fragrance Insiders, seem like just the ticket. Bath & Body Works recently shared a couple new products with me including all new hand soaps and a collection of fragrances inspired by Hawaii.

This post is part of the SPLENDA® 365 Sweet Swaps Blogger Program by McNeil Nutritionals, LLC and The Motherhood, who sent me products and compensated me for my time. Opinions, experiences and photos shared here are my own, and I hope you enjoy them.
Experts recommend women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, yet the average American eats 22 teaspoons daily.
Most of us vastly underestimate the amount of sugar we eat because the sweet stuff is hiding in some of our favorite foods and beverages, like vanilla lattes, fruit flavored yogurt, salad dressing and cereal. Once we realize where the sugar is hiding, we can come up with ways to eliminate the excess sugar from our diets.
I've been recently trying to swap sugar for splenda myself. In fact I swapped splenda for the sugar in these blueberry muffins I am popping in my oven right now.

I was tickled to be invited to join this exclusive Netflix blogger network, as our entire family of 7 has already been a fan of Netflix streaming services and it's content for quite some time. (I've become a huge of the Netflix original House of Cards, but I'll save that "after the kids are tucked in bed viewing addiction" for another post.)
I've found that I've become an even bigger fan of Netflix in the past few months with our oldest son off at college. You can't exactly pack your household's cable subscription up when it's time to head off to school, but you can still bring the luxury of Netflix content with you on your iPad, Roku, or Laptop.
As part of this team, I'll be sharing our family's Netflix viewing habits and other Netflix related news with you around once a month or so. Perhaps you can share some of yours too?
