Spring into Spring with Home Depot’s Garden Club

001

I've said it a million times and I'll say it again...I so love spring! The colors, the fresh smell, the break from the winter cold and darkness...it's my favorite time of the year. We have a little one and it's always exciting to see him light up when the weather finally breaks and he gets a chance to spend more time outdoors. Each spring my husband and I like to get outside and get cracking on rejuvenating our yard after the long winter. Last year we spent a whole weekend weeding, re-mulching, and recreating our backyard. It was so much work, but the end result turned out amazing once everything bloomed and the flowers came in. This was … [Read more...]

Cheesy Potatoes with Crunchy Kettle Chip Topping

cheesy potatoes with Kettle Chip topping

If you guys didn't know...I'm an Ohio State Alum, "GO BUCKS!", and we really enjoy watching OSU make it in the basketball tournament each year. Tonight we're gearing up for their next big game and we couldn't celebrate the evening without my staple side dish of Cheesy Potatoes. My family jokes that we use this dish for EVERYTHING and it's really true...for any celebration, cookout, holiday, or party my Mom's Cheesy Potato recipe is used. Typically we use corn flakes on top of it, but I decided to add some flare to it this time around and top it with crunchy, salty Kettle Chips and WOW she loved this combo! Here's the … [Read more...]

Making life easier with Healthy Choice meals

Healthy Choice Balsamic Garlic Chicken Steamer

I'm a working mom, I'm sure you're sick of me reminding you, but it's paramount to understanding how important it is to have quick easy meals ready to go at my house. We have a really strict structure of events in the evenings and if one little thing takes too long, it throws us all off. I can usually get a homemade meal on the table 5 nights out of 7 a week, but for those nights when we have soccer or baseball...it's hard! I tried out a Healthy Choice Steamer Meal this week from ConAgra Frozen Foods and really enjoyed it! The nice thing about these meals is that there isn't any question about the origins of the meat or chewiness or … [Read more...]

Making Toothbrushing Fun with Arm n Hammer ToothTunes

ToothTunes_logo

Getting our teeth brushed at home really isn't always that hard to be honest...my son quite enjoys it. The issue I have is keeping him interested in brushing long enough to really do the trick. My toddler will do a quick swipe of his teeth 5 or 6 times and try to call it a day. I recently got sent a ARM & HAMMER™ Tooth Tunes™ toothbrush to review with my son. This toothbrush plays One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful" song when you push the button and kids can ROCK OUT while brushing their teeth. Once the music stops, they're done and they can carry on with their day. When we got the toothbrush my kiddo (3 years old) was … [Read more...]
