It’s almost Memorial Day Weekend! The “official” kickoff to the summer season. For a lot of America, I think that means BBQs, picnics, spending time with family and remembering the sacrifices made for our freedom. For us, it means that it’s time for the Taste of Cincinnati!! Yes, you read that correctly. It’s Taste weekend! Yahoo! For hubs and myself, it means one solid day of food, fun and entertainment sans kidlets! They go and spend and fun day with their grandparents while we go and make gluttons of ourselves “taste” our way through the festival!
I’ll bet you’re wondering why, oh why is this post titled Good Housekeeping Mobile Tour and yet, I’m talking about the Taste of Cincinnati? Well, there is a reason.
Why is there a tour? This year Good Housekeeping (a magazine I’ve subscribed to for literally years!) is celebrating 100 years of the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval! For 100 years, they have been reassuring the public that products carrying the Good Housekeeping Seal have been tried and tested in their Good Housekeeping Research Institute! Personally, this makes my mind rest a little easier.
For the mobile tour, the Good Housekeeping Research Institute has set up a replica of their labs in NYC. They will show you how products are tested in the various labs in order to gain the Good Housekeeping Seal! They are really going all out for this tour! I’m honestly looking forward to seeing this!
I want to give a shout out to the sponsors of the various labs within the tour! The tour itself is sponsored by Ikea (umm, hello, we all KNOW how much I love this store!), Culligan, Protect-A-Bed (make sure and check out our review/giveaway from them!), I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter, Green Works, Alli, Olympic Paints, Lubriderm, Nintendo Wii Fit Plus and BISSELL (check our the review/giveaway from them as well!!).
I’m looking forward to this weekend!! Aren’t you? If you see me, stop and say “hey”! I may not be able to immediately speak though because I’m pretty sure my mouth will be full of something…..mmmmm, ribs…….!!
