Sometimes Your Teenagers Really Do Listen - Like When It Comes to Saving Money with CampusBookRentals.com

So while I don't really consider myself a "mommy blogger," I do on occasion talk about my 'kid' on my blog.  My 'kid' who is actually really a legal adult.  I bribe ask her to help me with posts, in which you'll see her in photos and sometimes she'll even give me an opinon about a product or two, without being sarcastic.

So let me update you on her status a bit, because it's been a while since I've done so.  She's flourishing at college.  Kind of surprising to us as parents honestly, we were sure she was going to be calling us all the time wanting to come home for the weekends.  Not. Even. Once.

Easy Craft: Fillable Easter Ornaments

easy fillable easter ornamentsI admit to having gone a 'bit' overboard at the after Christmas sales last year.  When Hobby Lobby had 80% off, well I nabbed quite a few things.  One of the items was a box of six small, square, glass ornaments.

Coca-Cola Black Forest Brownies & DIY Basketball Coasters Tutorial

We have a great time getting together with a group of friends every other week.  We talk and we eat.  Us ladies enjoy crafting together and the guys...well they talk and watch sports and right now they are in the thick of watching NCAA® March Madness.  So I thought it would be fun if I brought along some cans of Coca-Cola all packed up with crafted Basketball Coasters when we get together this week, along with some Coca-Cola Black Forest Brownies for us all to enjoy.

I'll start with the brownies.  They really are so simple to make.  You can see how easy it is with my Flipagram Video below.

Wedding Season is Upon Us! Shop for Unique Wedding Gifts at Tabula Tua

Last summer we received the exciting news that the first of my nephews & nieces had gotten engaged, then we received a ‘Save the Date’ card for one of my husband’s nephews!

Both weddings will be in Canada this year, and neither couple has requested presentation for their gift choices.  I don’t have the option of shopping at the stores they are registered at, but just because I can’t shop in Canada doesn’t mean I can’t shop at Chicago’s premiere tabletop store…even from Texas!

SPLENDA® Sweet Swaps - Poached Pineapple with Sweet Cinnamon Syrup

poached pineapple mango yogurtIt’s no secret that I like the warm weather. My family couldn’t wait to move to Texas to get away from the cold Northern air. I’m itching for spring to make a full appearance, but it seems to be lagging behind the ‘official’ date!

So I needed to bring some spring into our home this week with a dessert bursting with sunshine, sweetness and warmth. Fresh fruit with the color of spring, bright yellow like the daffodils and tulips trying to poke their way through the ground, and some frozen yogurt to top it off.

An Amazing Deal That You Can Easily Digest & a $50 Sprouts Gift Card Giveaway

Our daughter has an extremely fragile digestive system.  The college dining hall doesn't always have food she enjoys eating and when she eats out she rarely makes the best choices.  We found the easiest way to keep her system in balance so she feels her best to be able to learn and study is with probiotics.  Taking a supplement a day has made a big difference for her.

I love that I get a chance to share an amazing deal with you today that you can easily digest! Sprouts Farmers Market, specialty grocery store is offering 25% on selective Probiotic brands March 18th to 25th.  If you don’t know, Sprouts is a natural grocery store. Their tagline is “Healthy Living for Less.”

New Caress Forever Body Wash Collection

I have a very keen sense of smell.  And while others that also have that heightened sense of smell choose to use products that have no fragrance, I am all about the pretty and indulgent scents.  In my home I melt wax tarts and have air freshners in every room, and my soaps and body washes are usually chosen on scent over anything else.  I'm the person who you don't mind sitting next to on the airplane for a few hours ;)

I want to smell good all day, not just for two hours after I shower.  I want scent that clings to me.

Simple Way to Organize and Store Playing Cards

store playing cards in a bar soap containerBar soap container boxes.  I remember having one to take to camp eons ago when I was younger.  I know people must still use bar soap since they sell it in every store ;)  But we only use liquid soap and body wash for the most part around here.

I had received a beauty package for a blog campaign I did last year and included in the products was a plastic bar soap container.  As I was cleaning up this week, I had also come across a picture on Pinterest where someone suggested storing playing cards in them.  Certainly more sturdy than the cardboard boxes most card games are sold in.

Market Street's Apple Donation Program + Cinnamon Roll Apple Pie Recipe

What I love about shopping at Market Street is that they are invested in the communities that they are located in.  They like to know where the food they sell comes from, and they personally visit each and every Growing Partner they buy from.  In turn they also give back and from now until March 18th, for every apple purchase in their stores, Market Street will donate apples to an area food bank.

Well that just made we want to buy some apples!  And look at the variety the Flower Mound Market Street had available.

Welcome Spring with a New Welcome a Cure Welcome Mat from Carpet One + Giveaway

In 2010, when I was 36, my doctor referred me to have a mammogram done.  He said I needed a base line, my insurance covered it, and there was no reason not to have it done.  I didn't want to and have no familial history of breast cancer, but the imaging center was close to my home and I was assured that it would not take long, so I kept my appointment and went.  The films all looked fine, I filed away the experience and went on with my life.
