Ice Cream Cookie Cups! Perfect Summer Treat!


Ice Cream Cookie Cups! Perfect Summer Treat!  We have been having record breaking heat here in Colorado. I know to some of you it is not hot but to us it's killer! We have been hitting 102 degree's already and it's only June! With summer heat comes the kids constantly begging for ice cream, popsicles and anything they can get their hands on that is COLD. Recently it was too hot outside for them to play so we decided to turn our love for ice cream up a notch and make these super easy cookie cups.   Aside from the ice cream I think that the kids have been living in the water this summer. My daughter has spent every single day for the past two weeks in the kiddie pool or running through the sprinklers. I'm glad that she is getting off the couch and getting outside. It is wonderful to hear the laughter of the neighborhood children as they all splash and play outside together. How have your and/or your kids been keeping cool this summer? As for me I have been trying to hike … [Read more...]

Lovin’ My Portable Stereo Turntable


** I was sent this product for the purpose of this review. However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way. Lovin' My Portable Stereo Turntable   A few months ago my daughter and I were shopping at an antique store. I remember coming around a corner and seeing some records to which my daughter immoderately asked "What the heck are these Mom? They look like big CD's." I was honestly surprised that she did not know what they were. She is 11 years old! I grew up with a turntable in my room and listened to records all the time. I guess I took that for granted and just expected her to know lol. I explained to her what they were and we ended up searching around the antique store until finding a turntable. I showed her how it would work and such...she was so curious and amazed. Fast forward a few weeks and I got a surprising email asking me if  I would be interested in reviewing..guess what...a turntable! YAY! I of course said yes and immediately went down town … [Read more...]

** I was provided with a copy of this title for the purpose of this review. However, my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors Movie Review I am so happy to say that I grew up with Dolly Parton's music. I can still hear my Momma's voice singing Coat of Many Colors which is one of her favorite songs.

Just thought you all would like to know those interesting little tid bits! :) Recently I was able to review Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors Movie.

8 Simple Tools For Raising Great Kids

However my own opinion was used and not influenced in any way.   8 Simple Tools For Raising Great Kids Great read on this rainy day #ontheblog #parentingishard #great read A photo posted by Krista (@mrs.krista.w) on Apr 15, 2016 at 8:42am PDT Recently I received a copy of 8 Simple Tools For Raising Great Kids. As most of you know I currently have a "tween" as she calls herself. She is just starting into the folded arms, eye rolls and back talking. It is driving me and her father insane. Sometimes it is easy to lose our temper. Especially with someone who is testing out her boundaries and just coming into her own as a pre-teen. Because of a few difficult things we have had going on with our daughter I knew that this book was for me. Honestly I did not even make it through the first chapter before I was crying. This book was filled with words that I needed to read and I honestly feel like it was … [Read more...]

DIY Liquid Sidewalk Chalk


    DIY Liquid Sidewalk Chalk   I love how much the weather has been warming up here recently. My girls and I have been spending more and more time outside. It seems like every home school lesson I give my oldest she is begging me to let her go do it outside. I love it! Seeing her thrive outside is really getting my mind turning and focusing more and more on lessons that we can do outside that will still help her to learn the home school lessons she needs to learn. A few days ago we did a fun science lesson that talked about chemical reactions. During that lesson we were able to make some fun and amazing Liquid Sidewalk Chalk. It was so much fun to make and watch react. Plus the drawings and designs on my driveway made it all the more fun and special. I love watching my daughter when her creative wheels are turning. Plus this is something that she will be able to make and do over and over again this summer.     Recently I have been … [Read more...]

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #SnugHugs #CollectiveBias  DIY Diaper Bouquet Using Huggies Snug & Dry Diapers!   My daughter was in diapers when I first moved to my new town 10 years ago. Being new to town I didn't know much about the shopping or the stores. I do however, remember that I was excited to have a Sams Club. My husband had been a Sams Club member for year. But we were not able to make it to Sam's Club very often from where we lived before. As soon as we moved, I knew that that was about to change. Upon visiting Sams Club for one of the first times since I moved to town, I discovered that they had amazing prices on diapers. I loved that I was able to get huge packages at great low prices. As most of you know, we welcomed home a new baby girl in November. As soon as I found out I was pregnant, we started stocking up on diapers and such. Thank goodness I had the great experience … [Read more...]
