Sidewalk Paint

I believe a lot of kids are back in school now (mine are...), but if you are looking for a simple, fun activity to do as summer winds down, or after school, send your kids outside with some sidewalk paint!

We did this 3 years ago when my boys were itty-bitty and they loved it just as much this time around at ages 5 & 7. Let's be honest, I enjoyed it too! :)

Go visit my original post for directions.

The Boxcar Children Review & Giveaway (Ends 8/21/14)

Disclosure: I received a copy of "The Boxcar Children" for the purposes of this review. All opinions expressed are my own.


The Boxcar Children review & giveaway (ends 8/21/14)
Did you grow up reading "The Boxcar Children"? I used to love reading the books as a little girl, and I was excited for the opportunity to introduce my boys to the series through the new movie (based on the classic series by Gertrude Chandler Warner). I wasn't sure what to expect from the movie, and my boys were hesitant to watch it at first. But, when we turned on the movie, my boys couldn't turn away! It was fun to watch their facial expressions throughout the movie, and the most common expression on both of my boys' faces was a huge grin. The movie was funny, cute, touching, and clean. The Boxcar Children is definitely a "feel-good" movie that my boys talked about for days afterwards, and have since shown interest in reading the books.

Angry Birds Birthday Cake

I made this cake for my 7-year old’s birthday in the spring and loved how easy it was to make.Angry Birds Birthday Cake @ whatilivefor.net I used the “Angry Birds Knock on Wood Game” which I got for $5 on clearance. I baked a 9x13” cake, leveled it and used the part I cut off as the base of the castle. My son was insistent that he got to help arrange the pieces, which were held together by frosting. The “rocks” are Milk Duds.

Simple, fun and my son now has a game to play as well :).

Spellbinders® Celebra'tions Collection Review

Disclosure: I was provided with a sample of the product for the purpose of this review. All opinions expressed are my own.

In high school I got very involved in scrapbooking. I loved cutting paper and making designs. My mom and I would scrapbook for hours, and it was fun to relive memories and we compiled them onto pages. Now, however, the thought of scrapbooking is simply exhausting! I can't fathom pulling out a bunch of paper to cut into small scraps, gluing it, organizing it, and cleaning it all up. There are plenty of other things I would rather do. I prefer to make digital scrapbooks that I can have printed which saves me from all of the clean up!

Spellbinders Celebra'tions Review
Still, nothing can quite replace something homemade. Homemade cards are especially meaningful and cute. There's just that whole time/mess/clean-up issue to deal with. Here's where the new Spellbinders Celebra'tions Collection comes in to play. This is a complete collection of stamps, paper, inks, dies, and accessories which are all coordinated to work together so you can make cards, gifts, scrapbook layouts, etc. I made a cute little card to mail to a friend for her birthday with the kit I received and it was so simple to use. Everything was pre-cut and it came with directions in a step-by-step manner. I was able to make a cute, fun card in a manner of minutes! To learn more, visit Spellbinders.

Family First & a giveaway! (Ends 8/6/14)

Disclosure: In exchange for this post I will be compensated, and the sponsor will provide the prize pack. All opinions expressed are my own.

My dad was always my hero. He was in the military and, growing up, I always felt like he was my own soldier; he was there to protect me. No other relationship quite compares to the one I share with my daddy.
