Mom Among Chaos received a free meal for her family to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. Skip Cooking With Olga's & Giveaway.
Every once in awhile mom needs a night off. For me, that night usually comes on Friday. By Friday, I've had enough of getting up at 5:30 AM, and the stresses that come with having an active family.

Olga's offered me a night off! Yes, one that I wouldn't have to wait on or clean up after my family.  So the other night we all headed into the Troy Olga's looking like hot messes to enjoy some much-needed family time.

Skip Cooking With Olga's

Skip cooking with Olga's? Yes, please! Olga's is my eleven-year old's favorite restaurant. She has a slight addiction to Olga's snackers. 

This is my daughter's super happy face due to her love for Olga's. This is my smiling face that I don't have to cook!!!

Let's just say that Olga's Snackers disappeared quickly. My daughter enjoys them without the cheese. I think she's silly! I love the cheese!

My two favorite sandwiches at Olga's are the Three Cheese Olga and the Original Olga. I love the bread and fresh ingredients from Olga's. I've grown up visiting Olga's on a regular basis and so have my children.

I stepped out of my traditional favorites this time and tried the Spinach & Feta Dip Snackers. They were tasty, but I still prefer the Snackers because I love the cheese so much.
Olga's has a limited time pumpkin spice bread pudding. I didn't try it since I don't like pumpkin spice. My husband thought it was okay. 

Fellow mom's you deserve a break, skip cooking with Olga's. You will be glad you did!

Enter to win a $25 gift certificate for Olga's and take the night off!!!

7 Amazing Health Benefits of A Clean And Clutter-Free Home

7 Amazing Health Benefits of A Clean And Clutter-Free Home

A lot of people can quickly judge a person’s personality and behavior by the looks of their home. This is why it’s kinda necessary to keep our abode neat, tidy and well organized at all times to make a good impression. Aside from that, a clean and well maintained home is also quite beneficial to the overall wellness of a person. Studies show that people who live in a clean and clutter-free home are much happier and healthier compared to those who don’t.

If you don’t have that much motivation to clean your home regularly, please read the following list. If this doesn’t make you get started with your cleaning journey, nothing else will work.

Healthier family

This is the most obvious benefit that people can get from a clean home. Regular sweeping, vacuuming and dusting can effectively remove dust, dirt and other invisible germs or bacteria that can cause sickness and diseases.

Eliminate allergen
Cleaning the home regularly can eliminate allergens that can cause a lot of problems. This is why it’s important for people with a sensitive nose or those who suffer from asthma attacks to keep their home dirt and dust free at all times.

Prevent mold growth

According to the experts, mold is the most common disease-causing element at home. Eliminate its growth by regularly cleaning your home. It’s also a must to periodically check each and every corner of the house to make sure that there’s no chance for it to grow.

Boost mental health

The cleaner the home is, the happier the person that lives in it. Experts say that the ambiance inside the house affects the overall behavior and attitude of a person. In one study, experts found out that people who described their home as cluttered are more depressed and had higher levels of stress hormone cortisol than those who say that their house was well kept and organized at all times.

Safer place to live

Avoid accidents at home by keeping everything organized and stored in their proper location. Remove any stuff or items that can make people stumble and fall. Organize those loose wires and cables that can trip people.

Good exercise
If you don’t have that kind of time to exercise, then try cleaning your home on a regular basis. It’s a good exercise as it can help you move your body and sweat a bit. You might be surprised on how many calories you can burn by just cleaning your home.

Improves the quality of sleep

The cleaner and the fresher the home is, the higher the quality of the sleep. A clean house has mental and physical effects that promote sound sleep.

These benefits are more than enough to keep your home clean and tidy at all times. So what are you waiting for, plan and prepare now and start cleaning your house!

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Black & White Cookie Giveaway

 I try not to watch the news because I become depressed. Since most of my work is online, I catch the news via social media. Last week I was heartbroken over the massacre in Las Vegas and the death of Tom Petty. All of these happenings set my anxiety off.

When my anxiety is high, it's time to look for the simple things in life like coffee!

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Black & White Cookie K-Cups are delicious and remind me of having a crispy chocolate and vanilla cookie. A cookie that you want to savor and eat slowly to take in all of the flavors.

Black & White Cookie is not a sweet coffee which is perfect because you can sweeten it to your liking because using these K-cups you get to be the barista!

A few months ago, I gave up my creamers and came up with my own which actually brings out the taste more in my coffee. Before, I would drown my coffee in the creamer. Now, I add a couple splashes of almond milk and sweeten with SweetLeaf Sweet Drops.

Would I recommend Black & White Cookie? Yes, I would. This coffee will remind you of the simple things in life. Holding a warm cup of coffee in the morning is definitely a pure pleasure in a world of chaos.

Brooklyn Bean Roastery Black & White Cookie is seasonal. Yes, you heard that correctly. So you might want to grab it today before they're gone for the season!
