Review and Giveaway: McDonald's Bacon Clubhouse

Disclosure: I received compensation in the form of products and a gift card in exchange for my honest opinion.

Drew, Fynn and I hit up our local McDonald's the other day to try out the new Bacon Clubhouse Sandwiches. We had these sweet coupons for buy one get one free sandwiches and a gift card, which meant full bellies and a full wallet (always a perk). Another perk was that when the cashier scanned the coupon, the receipt came out with a note at the top that apparently made me a VIP because man did we get our food fast. We decided to try all three sandwiches, the Bacon Clubhouse burger, Grilled Chicken Bacon Clubhouse and Crispy Chicken Bacon Clubhouse. We also ordered Fynn her first ever Happy Meal.

I grabbed the food and we headed home to eat lunch before the inevitable pre-nap time meltdown. Unfortunately, when we got home we discovered that they had left Fynn's Happy Meal out. We were bummed, but we had more then enough food. Drew went with the burger while I stuck with the chicken. We split the other chicken sandwich three ways so that Fynn could join in on the taste test. Pretty sure she was psyched.

These sandwiches were amazing. They were on a different bun then you usually get at fast food places and were loaded with tasty chicken/beef, bacon (oh, how I love bacon) veggies, onions and Big Mac sauce... now if you know me at all, you probably already figured that I got mine without the onions or Big Mac sauce... just not my thing. The people at McDonald's were super easy and accommodating about the changes I made which was a relief. Some fast food places act all put out when you ask them to leave stuff off. Fynn was so cute as she ate her sandwich. Her new thing right now is to say "mmmm, nummy" after every bite of food she eats. That girl can also scarf down some french fries like you wouldn't believe. 

To help promote and share my experience with the new Bacon Clubhouse Sandwiches, I'm hosting a McDonald's Prize Pack giveaway! In the giveaway you could win a $15 McDonald's Arch Card, Bacon Clubhouse coupons (like the awesome ones I got), and other McDonald's goodies.

Easter AKA what was I thinking?!?!

Drew and I had this brilliant idea a couple of weeks ago; why don't we host Easter at our house this year instead of schlepping between both our parents' houses? It would make nap time a bajillion times easier and still allow us to see both families. Win-win, right?


Not even close. This is a lose, lose, lose. Forget about the awkwardness that comes with having both families here. Let's talk about the fact that we're going to be making dinner for 14 people (how did it become 14?!?). Let's talk about the fact that it means actually cleaning the entire house, because of course people are going to be all over the place. Let's talk about the fact that hosting means we can't just up and leave when we're wiped out and ready to go. Oh yeah, then there's the clean up AFTER, I'm sure that will be fun.

Next time Drew and I claim to have a good idea, smack us. Hard. 

Fynn better love it, because making her day is the only way all of this will be worth it.
