Onion Crusted Meatloaf and Potato Bites - Campbell's Labels for Education #Labels4Edu #cbias | This shop is sponsored by #CollectiveBias and it's advertiser. The story and opinions read here are entirely my own. As the new school year rolls around, it's time once again to start turning in those product labels. We have been collecting UPC labels for the past couple of years now as a simple way to give back and help our favorite local homeschool organization. The Labels for Education program is a fund raising program earning public and private Continue reading

Shrimp Boil - dinner party with Sam's Wholesale Club #trysamsclub | This shop is sponsored by #CollectiveBias and Sam’s Club. The story and opinions read here are entirely my own. Living close to the coast means we are big fans of summertime seafood boils. These hearty, one-pot smorgasbords are crowd pleasers and perfect for laid back entertaining. While we have hosted a fair share of crab feast parties this summer, last week I took it back to the basics and put together an impromptu shrimp boil dinner for a few of our friends. Shrimp Continue reading

Meal Planning on the Go - with tmobile free data #TabletTrio | This shop is sponsored by #CollectiveBias and its advertiser. The story and opinions read here are entirely my own. As fall approaches and we get back into the swing of a set schedule one thing I would like to personally work on is our meal planning. I have always found pleasure in planning and preparing dinners however these past couple of years it has been quite a struggle to focus on food - especially after our son's feeding tube surgery.

Kids Art Supply Cart - rolling storage activity cart #michaelsmakers | These past couple of weeks I've been working on revamping my little guys homeschool room. One of the things I really wanted to do this year was make room for all of his art and craft supplies in the space.  Previously most of the supplies were kept in my crafting space located downstairs. CJ loves to be creative so I thought having his own set of art supplies right in the room, available within arms reach, could open the door for some spontaneous creativity. As a member of Continue reading

Guest Bath Necessities | bathroom essentials for unexpected guests

Guest Bath Necessities - bathroom essentials for unexpected guests | This post brought to you by Listerine. All opinions are 100% mine. We have had quite a few overnight guests this summer. For the most part they have been planned visits however there have been a few occasions lately that the guests didn't even know they were staying until the last minute. We love to entertain and we love company so anyone is always welcome - though I feel a little like I'm slacking in the hostess department when I'm not prepared. I've learned the most Continue reading

Easy Chicken and Rice Turnovers | chicken pot pie pastry puff recipe

Easy Chicken and Rice Turnovers - chicken pot pie pastry puff recipe This Post Brought To You By The UNCLE BEN’S® Brand. I'm pretty lucky to have two little helping hands in the kitchen. CJ loves to cook. It may take just a few extra minutes and a little extra clean-up but the quality time spent together is well worth the effort. Even though the time spent together is amazing - in our house, cooking together as a family means a whole lot more. As much as CJ loves to prepare food he surprisingly can't eat any of it - as he is solely fed by Continue reading
