Great Food all at HarborWalk Village on the Gulf Coast
If you have been following along my Gulf Coast posts, like my post about Destin Snorkel, Buccaneer Pirate Cruise and Emerald Grande while on Brandcation, then you probably know the great time we had. But today, I am going to talk about the Restaurants that we had the pleasure of eating at while we were there. And they are not in any particular order because they were all amazing. Some of the food was comped and the ones that weren’t, I paid for myself. However, all opinions expressed are 100% my own and may differ from yours.
The first night we got there, we ate at La Famiglia. We started with a salad then had pasta and Fettucini Alfredo. Finished with Fish, Italian Ice and Triple Chocolate Cake. The food was fabulous along with the views. Connect with them on Facebook.
We had the pleasure of eating breakfast and lunch at the Emerald Grande ~ Grande Vista Bar & Grill Restaurant. They even had special menu’s made for us stamped with the Brandfluental logo. I had Sausage, Eggs, Hash Browns and Toast for breakfast and the Yacht Club Ciabotta for lunch the following day. They also had crackers and spread that was to die for. Would love to get the recipe for it. Connect with them on Facebook.

Just recently, we decided to try and save some money by refinancing our mortgage. Even though our house is only 3 years old, the rate has dropped almost 3 points since then. So, I got on the phone and tried to refinance. The guy calls me back a few minutes later and says……did you know you have a judgement against you? Say what? Come again!
Now, don’t you think if I knew there was a judgement against me, I would be calling to refinance our mortgage? Hmmm, I don’t think so. I guess with a name like Mary Walker, there are going to be discrepancies on my credit report. Luckily, I filed the necessary paper work and it was removed within a month.
Had I had LifeLock when it first appeared on my credit report, I would have known right away. But who knows what it did to my credit score and how long that takes to get fixed.
I received a free year of LifeLock in order to facilitate my review. All opinions expressed are 100% my own and may differ from yours. LifeLock has two different plans. A regular plan, which is $10 per month or $110 per year and the Ultimate Plan which is $25 per month or $275 per year.
Down here in Florida, there is so much identity theft. I actually know 2 people personally that it has happened to. And that is something that is not an easy fix and can stay with you for a very long time.
With LifeLock, they monitor your credit 24/7 and will let you know if and when someone uses your social security number to open a credit card or even a savings or checking account. Look at the picture below and you will see the difference in plans.
Get ready for Summer with Betty Crocker Summer Birthday Cakes!
Here is a little infographic on ice cream cone cupcakes. These seem to be the latest trend in cupcakes especially for kids birthday parties. I have to share with you though, that I was making ice cream cone cupcakes 32 years ago when my kids were little. I can’t remember where I got the idea from, but everyone thought it was the neatest thing. This is a sponsored post but all opinions are 100% my own and may differ from yours. I don’t know about you, but I think that homemade cakes are so much better than store bought cakes. It gives it that personal feeling, like you cared enough to spend to the time to bake it.
One of my favorite birthday memories are was when I turned 30! I came home from work and my dad and my cousin had decorated my front porch with signs, balloons and streamers. I was so surprised and happy that I cried. I felt really special. Another wonderful birthday memory is every year my mom would make me a hawaiian sheet cake because it was my favorite. That cake was so good and it’s been awhile since I have had it. My mom is 93 and doesn’t bake as often so I now have to make it for myself (or someone else’s birthday). I just might make one for Memorial Day this weekend.
Last year we had two new babies in our family. That also means 2 baby showers. This year we are having another baby. That makes for a lot of baby shower invitations and baby announcements. Our go to place for these cards is Tiny Prints. They have so many choices that it usually takes me an hour to decide on one. I am receiving free product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions stated are 100% my own and may differ from yours.
Lets start with the Tiny Prints Birth Announcements. When you have a baby, you are so excited and want to shout it out to the world. They have unique birth announcements. We know they are having a girl so we have already picked out a few. Some of our favorites are:
The designs are as special as your baby. And if you want to go all out, because nothing good enough for your special one, they also have matching address labels, thank you cards & gift tags.
