4 Super Simple & Giggly After-School Snacks To Make With Your Kids

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, INC. and The Coca-Cola Company, all opinions are mine alone. #AFreshIdeaForAfterSchool #CollectiveBias I am so excited I get to venture into the after-school snack territory this year. Its new territory, and I am finding that the more fun the snacks are, the more likely my boys are to eat them. Eating in general is not their strong point, unless it’s pure sugar. I am not super strict on sugar, because I want them to learn how to eat sugar in moderation. My boys love Coca-Cola™, and they get so excited to have a little bit with their after school snack. The Coca-Cola Mini Cans are great because the don’t drink that much. Boy do they feel special, and my husband loves a Coca-Cola, so they think they are big boys when I hand them their after-school treat. They get about half-way through, then I save the…

All opinions are mine alone. #SummerIsForSavings #CollectiveBias #WFM4 Boohoo, the summer is almost over. It’s the last few long days, hot nights and lazy mornings, that I love so much.

All opinions are mine alone. #SoHoppinGood #BlueBunny #CollectiveBias Back to school season is in full swing, and so are the massive amounts of peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches. Being as excited as we are, we are of course celebrating with some fabulous Peanut Butter and Jelly Milkshakes with Blue Bunny® PB ‘N Cones™!

To make them is even more fun, I did a race car version and princess version. My boys LOVED the race car milkshakes! They couldn’t believe it was red like their race car, and came with a new car on top. My base for the shakes is the brand new Blue Bunny® flavor, PB ‘N Cones™ This flavor blends up so…

Just planning a time to go somewhere, making sure the kids are watched, then leaving and worrying…is it really “me” time?

Surviving Meal Time and Veggies With Picky Toddlers

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #BaronessPatches #CollectiveBias I’ve got three boys, two of which are picky eaters, the other one is a nine month old baby who wants to eat everything. He’d probably be happiest with wood chips and dirt, rather than the organic purees.  Here’s the link I mentioned to the Sweepstakes for $4,295 in e-gift cards form Walmart and pizza gift cards yay!! #BaronessPatches #Sweepstakes (8/10 to 9/7) I’ve had my fair share of struggles with getting my toddlers to eat anything really. They just don’t want to slow down and eat. Playing, running, fighting, hiding…those things are all way more fun. I’ve had to really step up my veggie game to get these boys to even look at anything green. For a while, I resorted to actually putting bowls of food on the floor with…

This post is sponsored by DOSH. All opinions are my own!  He is wearing a uniform, but of course, I will still be doing some back-to-school shopping. I have a great way for all the mamas out there who don’t want to step foot in the mall with kids in tow. Suckers, strollers, snacks, movies…it’s all just stressful, so I checked into my DOSH app to see what kind of online savings we could find for back to school shopping. Turns out, there are some great deals at my favorite places for back-to-school clothes. Gap, Nordstrom Rack, Old Navy and Target all have great cash-back incentives for shopping online through DOSH.
