Turn Your Weeknight into #TysonFreeMovieNight

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tyson Foods, Inc. All opinions are entirely my own.

I can’t be the only one who doesn’t feel like toiling away in the kitchen on Tuesday nights. (And often Wednesdays and Thursdays, too.) …Right? Time just seems to be in short supply on weeknights. And while there’s often groceries to buy, chores to do, and house projects to take on, we try to reserve at least one of our mid-week evenings for some relaxing together-time—usually popping in a movie. But that doesn’t mean we want to skimp on supper!

Tyson® products are my go-to solution for a night in.
Craving breakfast for dinner? Jimmy Dean® Hot and Spicy Sausage Biscuits with a side of bacon and veggie stuffed hash browns are ready in a snap so we can settle in with orange juice screwdrivers and an action-packed flick. Sometimes, we just want to forget about our grownup jobs and feel like kids again. So you’ll catch us dipping our State Fair® Classic Mini Corn Dogs or dinosaur-shaped Tyson Chicken Fun Nuggets in ranch dressing (it’s an Iowa thing) while we catch the latest colorful cartoon.

Often times, I just throw the whole bag of Tyson Honey Battered Tenders into the oven so we can curl up on the couch with a comedy. (The extra tenders go into the fridge for weekday lunches—they’re perfect for quick sandwiches or sliced up on salads.)

Tyson Foods just helps make weeknights easier. Their products are tasty and wholesome—saving me on time and effort without skimping on flavor.

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
