This was a very busy weekend for us, not only did we say “see ya later” to our oldest as he signed up for the military but we did Halloween. So crazy busy and some how it almost missed me that today is actually November 1st. What does this mean? Thanksgiving is only a few short weeks away. Are you ready? I have a few fun Thanksgiving books for your children to read and enjoy the holiday. Books about silly rhymes, history on Thanksgiving and some reflection books on what they should be thankful for.


Please feel free to expand my Thanksgiving books list in the comments section. I am always looking for more books to read to the kids.

Easter Treats for Your Basket!

March 23, 2016 By · No Comments


(I think we should’ve bought a smaller bunny for that basket. Oh well, someone is sure to love him)

Do you have Easter Treats for Your Basket? Easter Baskets have been appearing on store shelves for the past month, chances are you’ve seen those stuffed bunnies, giant chocolate hollow bunnies, Peeps and Cadbury Eggs. Sure everyone dreams of sinking their jaws into these things but do they think of the dentist bill that follows suit.  Many people start thinking of sugary treats when it comes to their child’s Easter Basket, but what about a healthier alternative? I’ve always liked putting in a stuffed animal, book/hot wheel and a few small plastic eggs filled with something.  Welch’s® Fruit Snacks and Go Organically® Fruit Snacks would make great fillers instead of all that junk food that you are surely thinking of putting in.


Welch’s® Fruit Snacks are America’s favorite fruit snack brand. The Welch’s® Fruit Snacks Easter themed box and pouch have custom Easter-themed graphics with fun shapes which include a Chick, Egg, Flower and Bunny. The snacks are perfect for Easter Baskets and stuffing eggs. Moms and Dads love that every pack is made with REAL Fruit, is Fat Free, Gluten Free, and contains No Preservatives. Welch’s® Fruit Snacks feature fruit as the first ingredient, so they taste delicious! 28 individual packages in the box.

I loved these ones the best, however my oldest daughter loved the Go Organically treats.

Go Organically® Fruit Snacks are USDA-certified organic, made with real fruit purées and real fruit juices. These tasty smart and delicious treats include 100% of the daily recommended value of Vitamin C and are an excellent source of Vitamins A and E. Go Organically® Fruit Snacks are GMO-free, gluten-free, preservative-free and made with natural flavors and colors from natural sources.  Not to mention, each individual pack is only 70 calories! 8 individual packages in the box.

Oh the best part if your little ones don’t eat up every one of them before school is back in session they can take them as a snack for their lunch. These would also be great for after school activities or for when your child runs in from outside looking for a bite while waiting for dinner.

Disclosure: We were sent the PEEPS® products below for this post. We just knew ya’ll would love the goodies.


Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? We are definitely ready and always celebrating. Yes, as many know I celebrate every holiday and normally decorate. If we don’t have decorations up you can expect my food to resemble a theme for that day. I love Peeps & Company so I wanted to share a few quick updates in case you didn’t know about the newest PEEPS®’ Valentine hitting the store shelves and then some that you may already know about but forgot they’d be out.

Holiday Gift Guide: Edifier H850 Headphones

December 4, 2015 By · 9 Comments


Whether you have children or are looking for an item to get someone you know and love these are absolutely amazing headphones to get them. My kids go through headphones monthly, to the point I started only buying them the dollar type of headphones because I was tired of replacing them. Not anymore. I got the Edifier H850 headphones to review and I must say not only do I absolutely love them but so do the kids.


How often do you go through headphones?  These are great for the gamer especially if the video game tv happens to be in the living room with you. I was constantly saying hush, turn it down I’m tired of hearing your game over my show. One day I was asked, “Well could I use your favorite headphones?” Let me just state that these work miracles for everyone. When I don’t want to hear a video game I pass them off, if my oldest daughter is listening to her music I toss them at her. No way, I’m so not dealing with it. Oh and when I want to listen to my leadership videos I plug these in and tune out everything around me. I love that they are super soft on my ears and actually fit my head. I have extremely thick hair that normally makes it hard to put headphones over my head but with their adjustable bands on both sides it fit nicely over my head/hair. I love that these are flimsy and are sturdy but soft due to the leather bound headband.Oh and the sound, it is clear and can go high or low. Edifier has headphones not only in black and white but in all other colors, stuff teens would like such as pink, blue, orange, purple, etc. [Read more…]
