*I am a part of the Finish Power & Free Alliance of Moms and have been compensated by Finish® for these posts/promotions. All opinions are my own During the summer, I don't really like to spend a lot of my time cooking, in a hot kitchen. We do a lot of grilling outside, Slow Cooker meals, ordering out and stuff like that. I also enjoy finding good, EASY recipes to make that won't require a lot of time in the kitchen, over the stove for hours, type of meals. I found one and had to try it out. I am sure you have all heard of the 'One Pot Meal'? It was plastered all over Facebook about a month or so ago. Of course I had to try it out the day I saw it. It looked so simple to make and only required a few ingredients. I could totally make that, I thought! I was right. It turned out AMAZINGLY delicious! I think this recipe originated from Martha Stewart. I added my own personal touch, by adding more ingredients like the olives, green onions, diced tomatoes, etc.. 5.0 … [Read more...]

The New Cabbage Patch Twinkle Toes Kids! (Giveaway)

2014-07-24_1311

*Product was received. Opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate link. I remember when I was  young, Cabbage Patch Kids JUST came out and my goodness, they were SO popular! I also remember going to Toys R Us before Christmas, and they happened to  have a new shipment of the Cabbage Patch Kids in. We were so excited! Me and my sisters ran and grabbed a doll and were so happy to be able to actually hold one! While my sister was holding hers, a rude woman came up to her and grabbed it from her and ran away! It was INSANE! Grabbing a doll from a child? Ya, I hope that woman was proud of that! Of all things! But, with this story, you can see just how popular these dolls were (and still are!). Anyways, so when I grew up, I held on to my Cabbage Patch doll (her name is Marion Leda, in case you all wanted to know!) and I gave her to MY daughter. So, my little girl has my doll :) She is a special doll to not only me, but my daughter too! So, when I was … [Read more...]

*Product received. Opinions are mine. I love makeup, that is no lie. I get makeup in the mail and I am like a kid on Christmas! It is so fun for me to open up those packages! Keeping myself nice looking, is very important to me. I don't want to look like a haggard housewife, by any means.

Love it ;) If you are a busy mama, like me, you don't have a ton of time to put on your makeup. So I was excited to see that Mia Mariu came out with a nice solution, in three EASY steps!

*Product was received, opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate link. Goodness it has been warm here lately! I am NOT complaining either, we love it! Every chance I get, I am on my deck soaking up the rays with my kids playing nearby. Up until a week or so ago, my little toddler only had a small kiddy pool to play in. But now, he has a new fun toy to play with when he is outside with his mama!! He received the Little Tikes Anchors Away Pirate Ship Water Table to check out and he loves this thing! When this came in the mail, it was my 8-year-old boy and 6-year-old girl who wanted to put it together! They actually did for the most part, but I did the screws. Soon, the water table was ready for baby (and bigger kids!) to play with. It comes with so many fun little add ons. Like a bucket (for pouring water on sissy's head!) or a squirter toy cannon or a floaty boat for the cute little people that it comes with. I was really impressed with all the … [Read more...]

*Product was received, opinions are mine. This post contains my personal affiliate links. So, have you seen Rio 2 yet? We just did last week and have seen it about 4 more times since then! Whoosh!

My little one likes to dance and watch this movie too! This movie also has some fun, exciting bonus features and extras (nearly an hour and a half of it!!), everyone will enjoy. You will also get your groove on with two downloadable bonus songs from the RIO 2 soundtrack: “I Will Survive” and “Poisonous Love,” both performed by Gabi (Kristin Chenoweth) and Nigel (Jemaine Clement).

SoftShell Ice Cream Ball Ice Cream Maker!

*Product was received. Opinions are my neighbors. This post contains my personal affiliate links. Did you know that today is National Ice Cream Day? It is! Yay! Who doesn't love a good scoop of deliciously cold ice cream on a hot summer day (or any day of the year!). In honor of this great day, we were sent a SoftShell Ice Cream Ball Ice Cream Maker, to make our very own ice cream! Woot! I had my neighbor and her children review this for me. They were so excited to try this out! The went to the store, purchased the ingredients they wanted and soon they were shaking and moving that Ice Cream Ball. You just don't want to kick it! Once the ingredients were inside the ball they closed up the 'door' on it. My friend said it was hard to put the lid on it and it did leak a bit when it was being shaken. She said it took around 40 minutes of vigorous shaking, to get the ice cream the consistency she wanted it. Even then, she said, she had to put it in the freezer for … [Read more...]
