Pop Secret Pillow Fort fun

  • Thanks to Pop Secret for sponsoring today’s discussion

We have been living in the sick house lately and it sure has been draining! Between doctor visits, pharmacy runs, and sanitizing the entire house not once but twice, we all need a break! A family break!

I am planning an all out fun day with my kids and it includes building a fort in the living room! They love doing this with me and it couldn’t come at a better time!

First off I need some fort planning ideas so I headed over to Pinterest to get some ideas.

Then after looking around for fort ideas, I started snack planning!

Of course we had to include Pop Secret because it’s my kids favorite popcorn and actually their favorite snack.

We were all geared up to put together our fort this afternoon but my daughter came down with a dental emergency so everything got put to the wayside. After being sick for a 2 weeks and for this to happen was a punch to the stomach but I am determined to put on the best pillow fort these kids have ever seen tomorrow! So check back tomorrow for our Pillow Fort with Pop Secret!

And while you are waiting, you can score a $1 off coupon on Pop Secrets Facebook page!

BelVita Bites and V8 Veggie Blends at Target are keeping me in my skinny jeans

What are your health goals for 2015? I have a teeny bit of baby weight to lose and I am determined to lose it by this summer! I am 31 and not in any rush to be prancing around in a bikini, especially after 4 c-sections. However, I have a mountain man of a husband and I want to at least look good for him!

I am at the weight I want to be but things are flabby, flabby! I need to get some muscle back and not run out of breath just by walking up our stairs in our home. My main problem is snacking! I get hungry and grab whatever is close by and I have been looking for a new snack to curb my sweet tooth and be healthy at the same time! Plus I need lots of morning energy to chase 4 kids around. 

My first goal is to eat breakfast! Sounds silly and easy but what happens is I skip breakfast and a couple of hours later I am starving and totally blow eating good for the day because I didn’t start the day off right. My new goal is to try out BelVita Bites for a quick breakfast and drink some V8 healthy greens. I have been told a thousand times that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and even if it’s a small meal, you have to eat breakfast. It definitely sets the tone of my whole day.

With the V8 Veggie Blends drinks, they are a blend of vegetables with a touch of fruit and with every 8 oz. glass you drink, you get a full serving of vegetables. Each 8 oz. serving is 60 calories or less with no sugar added and no artificial colors, flavors, or preservatives. I wanted to try all the flavors but I picked the healthy greens drink which has Spinach, Yellow Carrots, Apples, and Pineapple and is super yummy. 

If you’re looking for some yummy breakfast or snack options, head on over to your local Target and head to the back of the store. They just replaced the Christmas stuff with Valentine’s Day and just a few aisles over are these treats.

And if you want to try these new items out there will be a sampling event in-store at Target stores on 1/24/15 (you can call your local Target for exact times).

And if you’re looking to save some money you can download these Target Cartwheel offers:

Save 10% on BelVita: Offer available now until 1/31.

There are 2 V8 offers, #1 starting on #2 starting on 2/23. 

And while I was in Target I had to scoop up some new workout clothes. Have you ever tried on some of their yoga pants? They are priced great and the only yoga pants I wear! And how cute is this top?

I always want to work out more when I have cute clothes to wear!

What are your healthy goals for this year? I want to drink more water and snack better? What about you?

New Chuggington DVD and Train set. Last minute Christmas gift ideas!

IMG_7073   

If you are still out shopping and need some gifts for Christmas, check out this Chuggington train set! We got it in yesterday and I surprised my kids with it as an early Christmas present. The Chuggington StackTrack Koko’s Icy Escapade Action Playset is such a fun train set and they have spent hours playing with it! You can score this train set at Target or on Amazon.

Time is ticking to get those Christmas presents bought and wrapped so if you are out today, stop by Target and check this out.

Each year I let them open 1 present on Christmas Eve. It normally is new Christmas pjs, popcorn and a new movie. This year’s movies was the new Chuggington DVD “Snow Rescue”.

I wrapped up their PJ’s and popcorn and DVD for the kids and let them open them yesterday.

Silar said this was the best gift ever! He sure makes me smile! They all got in their pjs and took off to my bedroom to watch this DVD. This has become such a fun tradition with the kids and they look forward to it every year.

After we watched the DVD we set out to put the train together. We had so much fun putting it together as a family then playing with it afterwards. This would be a great present for the train fan in your life!

Ozeri 3x Tower Fan Review


d28c22447d8a179a444b8281f24023a874529adf  

All my Southern readers will appreciate this….we recently bought a house and it has no air conditioner! I didn’t know that was a possibility to live without A.C. I asked my realtor if this was normal and he said no one in the mountains has air conditioners. I grew up in the hottest of hot places and if the A.C. goes out in any season besides the winter, you are in BIG trouble!

Living in Denver, we didn’t have the best A.C. so we used room fans…ALOT! Problem is they were pretty cheap and on their last leg and I was looking for a new room fan. The Ozeri 3x Tower Fan is a great option for those who don’t have A.C. or need a room fan. I like the way it looks for #1. since it doesn’t look like a traditional box fan. It has a more sleek and slim design and is only 3 inches thick. So it won’t take up too much space since it’s one of the world’s thinnest fans. 

I love a good-looking fan but it also needs to deliver in the air department if I am going to give it my seal of approval. The Ozeri 3x Tower Fan definitely delivers because it has  3 independently controllable fans and 3 fan speeds, offering up to 9 levels of cooling with the option to totally customize your air flow. 

It also features 3 preprogrammed airflow patterns designed to foster sleep, relaxation and comfort with 90 degree whisper-quiet oscillation for optimal air circulation on a hot summer day or when you just need a little more air flow in the house. Since it is winter, the summer days are long gone but when I am cooking in the kitchen the air can get a little thick so I like using the Ozeri 3x Tower Fan to get the air circulating.

 The fan also has a programmable timer that you can control with the long-range remote so you can control the fan from anywhere in the room.

One other thing I love about this fan is how easy it was to put together. I feel like my life revolves around putting toys together that sometimes feels like I need an engineering degree to accomplish so this was a nice breath of fresh air that I had it together in under 5 minutes.
