Last week our family was able to check out what makes a Lexus a Lexus and we all agreed that it was a top model car. I personally had never driven in a Lexus before but after driving one for a week, I really enjoyed it. It was sleek looking, had amazing features and the best part was it was extremely roomy for a sedan. My entire family agreed on that one fact. It was the roomiest car we had ever driven.
What also made this Lexus special was that it was a hybrid. And we all know how much I love hybrids because of their fuel economy. But this one also had the capability to be an electric vehicle if needed too. I personally didn't test this out but I saw the light come on a few times at stop lights which was great since it saved on gas.
This model was fully loaded with many features included auto-dimming rear view mirror, heated outside mirrors, one touch moon roof, and rear window defogger. One feature we all enjoyed was that each window had a screen on it to help shade the sun. And the back window also had this which could be controlled with a button in the front.
Another great feature was the blind spot monitoring system and parking assist. I love being able to have help backing up since that's not my greatest talent. This model also had rain sensing wipers which I love because sometimes the rain can change so quickly that taking your hands off the wheel to adjust the wipers can be dangerous.
We also enjoyed the heated steering wheel too since sometimes it can be cold in the morning! There's nothing better than a warm steering wheel! Plus the car was so roomy that we all felt like we were in an SUV.
Overall my husband said he would choose this car over many because of how much room it had and that it was a hybrid. Because of those two factors, we thoroughly enjoyed this car.
This model gets 40MPG city and 39MPG highway and has an MSRP of $51,164.00

Growing up Italian has always has it's benefits. One of them that I can always remember is being able to find the best Italian food no matter where you are. I love finding good Italian food and most recently I was able to find some delicious ravioli and it was shipped right to my front door!
With ClubsGalore, I signed up for the Ravioli a Month club and with my first month, I was totally floored. I received two different sets of ravioli and two sauces, plus a loaf of bread. The ravioli I chose was cheese and then artichoke. And the sauces were tomato and pesto.
After trying both of them in two days, I was in love! They both had original tastes plus they were so fresh. Since they came on dry ice, I knew the ravioli and sauce were both made recently. All they needed were a few extra touches like fresh herbs and cheese and there was a lovely meal!

This blog post is part of a paid Megan Media and Petco Repeat Delivery blogging program. The opinions and ideas expressed here are my own.
This is why I signed up for Petco Repeat Delivery. Petco is now offering this amazing service when you go online to buy certain pet items. When you are on the page, you can elect to sign up for repeat delivery and you choose how often it is shipped to you. For me, (and my constant lack of treats for my pups), I signed up for 7 bags every two weeks. That should last them a while! Plus on certain items, you'll get 20% off when you sign up for Repeat Delivery too. Also, when you make your first purchase with Repeat Delivery and if it's over $39, you'll receive a $30 e-gift card too. To qualify, you must be a new customer to repeat delivery and sign up between April 1 and April 30, 2016. The e-gift card isn't able to be used on donations, backordered items or the purchase of another gift card.
Petco's Repeat Delivery service was really easy to use. In a matter of minutes, I had the treats that my dogs love in the cart and was checking out. After checkout, I was able to check in my online Petco account to see that Repeat Delivery was active and that every two weeks I would get 7 bags of treats. I also liked that I could pause my Repeat Delivery and update all information in my account too.
So, thanks to Repeat Delivery, I will have two very happy dogs in the house. At least I won't be running out of dog treats for a while! And the process was so easy, now I don't have to worry about remembering them when I'm in the store.

I am a Dealspotr Blogger Ambassador. All opinions are my own.
If you're anything like me, then when you shop online, you always have a coupon. I don't believe in paying full price for anything so before shopping, I always have a coupon. But sometimes it's hard to find that perfect coupon for the store you're shopping at. And that's where Dealspotr comes in.
Dealspotr is an amazing site that lets you post deals and post them to earn rewards. Let's say I see a deal that Macy's is running that gives 50% off of women's clothing. I can post it on Dealspotr and earn points in my account that can be saved up for Amazon gift cards. It's pretty easy to post deals and it only takes a minute to fill out the information needed.
Other than posting deals, you can also spot deals as well. Spotting means you see a deal already posted on Dealspotr that you think will be a hot deal. So you spot it and if the deal really does go hot, you earn more points. Pretty easy right? You get a certain number of "spots" a day to use on deals so use them on deals that you really think will be a hit. I used 2 of mine on deals and within a few minutes, they went hot and I earned points. It was quick and easy!
Even though there are a lot of other deal sites out there, I've never seen one that rewards you for posting deals. Dealspotr is a super fun and easy way to earn rewards for finding great deals, liking them and discussing them. If you spent a about 30 minutes a day doing this, you would have money to spend on Amazon every month. And that could really add up quick!
Plus they have the best selection of working coupons on the internet in my opinion. It's always a pain when you find that perfect coupon code and when you go to use it, it's not working or expired. With Dealspotr, they want to make sure all the codes are working. Even though you get your points automatically when you post a deal, someone still goes in and checks it to make sure it's working. So there's no hassle for when people go to use it when they're shopping!
Overall Dealspotr is an amazing way to earn a little extra money to spend on Amazon. It's fun and effortless. If you want to join, you can under this link. If you join on my link here, you will get 5,000 points added to your account, which is halfway to a $10 Amazon gift card, just for joining!
