Nose Pad 101: What Nose Pad Are You?

Have you ever bought a new pair of glasses or sunglasses and you absolutely love them EXCEPT… they fit a little weird? But you don’t want to return them because they are exactly your style? So, you just suffer through a little bit of discomfort? Yep. I’ve been there. More times than I’d like to […]

Up, Up, and Away

The year is quickly coming to a close. Here in the Midwest, we have already received our first snowfall. To be honest, I’m not sure if I’m excited about this or deeply saddened. Either way, I can’t do much about it. My puppy is all about it though, so I suppose I HAVE to like […]

Interview With Quinn Nystrom

This monthly spotlight is a little different than normal. On September 5th, 2019, I had the opportunity to speak with Quinn Nystrom about #Insulin4All. The reason this spotlight is different is because we were able to record it. At the bottom of this page, you will find a link to the full interview on our […]

Where to Next?

Who here is a fan of traveling? I AM. I AM. ME! To be honest, I’m the person that is constantly dreaming of my next destination. Dreaming of sitting on the beach next to turquoise waters with a mojito in my hand…. Yeah, that sounds pretty dang nice right now. I’m not saying that you […]

Fall Weather And Flu Season

The leaves are changing, and the air is getting crisp, which means that the flu season is getting closer and closer. Flu viruses are most common during the fall and winter months. Influenza activity typically begins to increase in October and November, but peaks between December and February. However, the flu season can stick around […]

Get Organized Week

This week has been full of National Holidays. If you’ve even glanced at your Instagram feed this week I’m sure you were hit in the face with all the couple photos celebrating #NationalBoyfriendDay. Which by the way, it is not a super fun holiday to celebrate if you’re super single. I’m here to talk about […]

What ChillMED Bag Are You?!

Finding the right diabetic supply kit for your needs can be tricky. There are many options out there. From stylish wallets, backpacks, insulated bags, and more. With so many decisions it can be hard to decide. Have you ever been shopping for candy and the amount of different options was so overwhelming that eventually you […]

Adventure Into Fall

As of today, it is officially Autumn. Whether you’re excited about that or not, it’s here. To be honest, I can’t decide if I’m excited or not. I love watching the leaves turn into hues of yellow, orange, and red. Breathing in the crisp air as the sun still filters through, but it’s still cold […]

New Week. New Resolutions.

Yes, it may be the middle of September. But that doesn’t mean that you can’t start new resolutions. It can be pretty easy to lose sight of what our New Year’s Resolutions were. Just because you faded off track doesn’t mean that you can’t start again. You don’t need the start of a new year […]

Cheers to Game Day

If you have any type of social media, you’re now well aware the beloved American football season is back in action. Whether you’re an avid fan, could care less, or hate the sport it can be hard to avoid it during this time of year. Between it showing at the bars, friends talking about it, […]

Squeeze Your Way Back To School

Labor Day weekend is officially done, and the kiddos are headed back to school. Parents, this is your time to relax a little bit. Your little munchkins will be busy bees with class, homework, and play dates. Sit back, put your feet up, and take a deep breath. Things will get chaotic quickly, so enjoy […]

An Afternoon With MN #Insulin4all

A calm, partly cloudy afternoon made for the perfect Sunday to gather at the Centennial Lakes Park in Edina, MN. The breeze blowing softly and the sound of people walking their dogs with their children. It seemed like a normal Sunday at the park. However, this day was much different. At the amphitheater was a […]

Organize Your Life (And Health)

The Minnesota State Fair, Labor Day, and back to school is all upon us (insert excited, nervous laugh because the year is going by too fast). Summer is quickly coming to an end and already has for many students. Some might be lucky enough to have one last weekend of freedom. I never got to […]

Discreet At The Dinner Table

If you tuned in to our Facebook Live video yesterday, then you’ll already know a little about this blog. You can just tell your friends that you’re psychic and knew what GMS was going to talk about. This blog is about all things dinner, food truck festivals, brunch, and any place that involves food. If […]

Cool Down This Summer

We’ve talked about our Summer bucket list and all the things that we want to get done before the leaves start to change color. No, I still haven’t been to my drive-in movie. *sigh* I’ll get there though! Typically, a lot of Summer activities include water sports in the Midwest like tubing, wakeboarding, water skiing, […]

Dogs With Diabetes

When we think of diabetes, we typically think of humans. Unfortunately, a lot of people still think it’s due to lifestyle choices and a diabetic person must be overweight. That is incorrect and offending to many that battle diabetes daily. However, humans are not the only ones that can get diabetes. Animals can also get […]

A Hard Pill To Swallow

Life can be a hard pill to swallow some days. Things seem to go awry all at the same time or it’s that day where you just keep spilling everything (me this morning…. Insert eye roll. I definitely came into work with an avocado mark on my shirt today). The saying, “it’s a hard pill […]

Rock Your Temple Tips On Your Glasses

Approximately 75% of humans in America use some sort of vision correction. Whether that be glasses, contacts, or a form of Lasik eye surgery. The vast majority wear glasses because they are so versatile. Glasses are used for reading, computers, everyday use, and even fashion statements (insert the classic picture of a hipster wearing clear […]

Motherhood And More

We are back for our second Monthly Spotlight—yay! Being a mother is hard work (I don’t personally know this, although my puppy is a handful. All I can think of is my mother raising me and two other daughters…. Can you imagine all the unnecessary drama that came through our house growing up?! I bet […]

Syringe Safety While On The Go

Can you believe it’s already the middle of July?! This summer is just flying by, which means you better start checking things off your summer bucket list that we talked about last week. Did you end up going to that drive-in movie?! Me neither. Being active and doing everything you want to can be hard […]
