As a second time mom, I'm still amazed at how different Little Miss is from her brother. I figured having some experience under my belt at this whole "parenting" gig the second time around would be a breeze. If our Sassy Pants toddler has taught me anything it's that she is her own individual with her very own way of doing everything, including meal time. From the beginning, she has been a happy eater so getting her to eat has never been the problem. Having fast, nutritious options for her little hands is the key.

I scream, you scream, we all scream for Ice Cream! Did you know July is Ice Cream Month? Now that's a holiday I want to celebrate! Growing up my favorite flavor of ice cream was always chocolate, I rarely tried new flavors. As an adult, I still like to stick with the flavors I know I like, but occasionally I will risk it and try something new. July is my birthday month and national ice cream month, I think it was meant to be! All this sweetness really makes me want to party. Thirty-One Gifts was ready for ice cream month with their delightful limited-time collection Sweet Sprinkles. I'm excited to introduce you to their new design and bring you the sweetest giveaway from Thirty-One Gifts!

With summer break in full swing, we've been a family on the move. We just returned home from a fun trip to North Myrtle Beach in South Carolina. One of our favorite things about going to a new city is trying out all the new foods. My husband firmly believes his hometown in Massachuttes has the world's best pizza. Which means, we have to test the local pizza establishments wherever we go. Packing for our trip, I'm the type of packer that brings everything but the kitchen sink, but some things are necessities like our heartburn medicine. With all the foods we like to eat on vacation the new Nexium 24 Hour ClearMinis have to go in the bag.

My husband has never been one to care much for clothes, he just wears whatever is comfortable. I can appreciate that. He doesn't spend money frivolously. Aside from our kids, he has very few things he really treasures, first comes his guitars he likes to keep them in tune, polished, and he keeps the strings oiled and replaced as needed. His next prized possessions happen to be our vehicles. I say he likes to "baby" his car, but really he takes excellent care of my truck as well. So many times on the weekend he'll pop in and tell me he's taking off to go use a car wash and then I'll find him in the garage waxing the car. I used to begrudge the time he spends maintaining our vehicles but now I realize how much pleasure he takes in having a shiny car. For this upcoming father's day, we surprised him with an early gift, it was the AutoRight SteamMachine. Every dad needs this awesome cleaning machine in his garage!

We just love watching movies as a family. As the Booper gets older it's, even more, fun to watch a movie with him as he can get into the plot and characters with us. We were excited to receive Max 2: White House Hero since I knew it would be a fun story we could all enjoy. Both our kids really love animals and the Booper gets into the fact that Max is a hero, and it just happens my grandmother's dog's name is Max as well.

Welcome to the Treat Yourself Mothers Day Giveaway!
Motherhood can be so busy and your days can be full of taking care of everyone else in your family that you forget to treat yourself to some down time. Moms tend to run themselves ragged to the breaking point. I've been there. I've learned to ask for help when I can and to take small moments to treat myself to something I enjoy. Sometimes it's a coffee drink and other times it's a long hot shower or just a couple minutes to paint my toenails. Whatever you think of to treat yourself, this mother's day take a moment to refill your own cup so you have something left to pour into your loved ones.

Dinner is a family affair in our house, we all like to get involved. My husband enjoys grilling food for our family when the weather is nice outside. While he works his magic on the barbecue I like to cook the side dishes inside and the Booper takes pride in setting the table. Setting the table is one of his "chores" to help the family. After he sets the table the Booper will go in and out the back door to check on his dad and to play outside while he waits on dinner. Leaving our back door open is like posting a huge buffet invitation to all the flying insects in our neighborhood. One of my pet peeves is sitting down to our family dinner and having a fly land on the table or plate. Who wants to be waving away a flying insect while trying to eat? Not me. We were needing a way to kill flies naturally without any fuss so we can enjoy our meals in peace. Introducing Zevo Flying Insect Trap, an indoor pest control for families needing an eco-friendly option.

When I was about ten years old I struggled with finding things I enjoyed reading. My mom searched to find things that would grab my attention. One Saturday afternoon we were at a church book sale and my mom came across a box of old Nancy Drew books. She bought them for me, I looked at the tattered covers and sighed, little did I know those old Nancy Drew mysteries would ignite my passion for reading! To this day, I still prefer reading mysteries if I'm going to read fiction. It's exciting for me to see that Nancy Drew is still around for girls to enjoy and Ovation Brands' Restaurants are joining in the fun!

There are so many fabulous ideas out there for ways to celebrate the holidays on the cheap with Dollar Tree, but some of my favorite ideas are the ones you might use anytime. Recently, I was at a posh event that included a luncheon for bloggers. They had an amazing spread on each table featuring a cylinder salad. I had never eaten a cylinder salad before but the presentation was so elegant I wanted to recreate the experience at home. If you're planning to host a luncheon for friends or family then you'll love this idea - plus you'll appreciate how inexpensive it will be using Dollar Tree products!
