TOMY Super Pop Up Pirate Toy

*I was sent a toy free of charge but all opinions are my own. 

pirate

I am already gearing up for my Holiday gift guide so from now until Christmas I am going to be bringing y’all the some amazing gifts I think would be great for this Christmas!

I can already tell any gifts you are able to score on Amazon are going to be at the top of my list like the TOMY Super Pop Up Pirate Toy. This way you don’t have to fight the stores, or carve out a time to go by yourself, you can easily order it and have it shipped right to your house.

I was sent this pop up toy last week from TOMY and my kids have not quit playing with it! For me, I loved it because there was so set up or hours of putting together! I cannot stand toys that take so long to put together and the kids end up playing with it for only a few minutes. 

The TOMY Super Pop Up Pirate Toy is so fun and for us and it was a game we all could play together! All you do is pop the pirate on the top of the barrel then take turns putting the colorful swords into the barrel. If the pirate pops up on your turn, your out! I am 30 years old and would squeal every time that pirate popped out! haha!

IMG_5369

We played this over and over and could never figure out the pattern of when the pirate would pop up so it was a new adventure every single time we played.

IMG_5375 

This is a fun toy kids would go wild over for christmas!

Go here to shop on amazon for a TOMY Super Pop Up Pirate Toy. I am already starting my christmas shopping so I don’t get behind, what about you?

This is definitely a toy that will make my christmas gift guide!

Dove and Dollar General are celebrating Real Beauty #DGFeelBeautifulFor

*This is a sponsored post on behalf of Dove, Dollar General and global influence but all opinions are my own.

I have always had wild curly hair and for the longest time I hated it but after fighting and fighting my hair, I learned to embrace it! I know I feel better about myself when I am confident and there is no reason to complain about the things I cannot change. I feel beautiful every day, stretch marks and all because I have 4 healthy children and a mountain man of a husband.

Screen Shot 2014-10-14 at 9.13.35 AM

If you have ever had a baby, you know not all parts of it make you feel beautiful. I will always be thankful to my husband because he never once asked me to lose weight, or made fun of my stretch marks or made me feel less when I didn’t feel beautiful.

I also love good products that make my skin and hair look good because that makes me more confident when I can tame my hair and have glowing skin! Dollar General and Dove want to celebrate unique beauty and they need to be rewarded! That’s why they’ve teamed up to help us all celebrate our unique beauty!

I personally think if we all tried to be the same and live up to the same “beauty standards”, life would be boring! Embrace what makes you unique!

UNI_DG_DoveOct_Asset1[2]

Right now there is a great deal on Dove products at Dollar General! Now through 10/19, save $2 instantly when you spend $7 on any Dove or Vaseline products in-store. I love Dove products because they help combat the elements here in Colorado that can be so harsh on my skin.

What makes you feel beautiful??!

Cascade Shining Reviews party and giveaway!

cascade    

This past weekend I hosted a Cascade party! We had an amazing supper including Calzones, homemade mac n cheese and a pan full of yummy brownies. I love to have friends over but I always hate the clean up afterwards and the mac n cheese and brownies sure did leave a mess! 

And you know what I hate…pre-washing!! I normally don’t have the time to pre-wash my dishes but if I put them in the washing machine to dirty, I end up having to wash them again and that sure is a pain!

IMG_5620

 

 

IMG_5621   

Normally if I put a pan like this in my dish washer, it would still have some food on one the cycle is done but not with Cascade platinum! It eliminates the need for pre-washing!

 

IMG_5627  

Even Anna Kate is impressed! It’s so clear you can see her Frozen shirt through the glass!

All my guests were impressed at how clean Cascade got these dishes. We were having so much fun at the party, no one wanted to waste time washing dishes so we just through all the dishes in the dish washer and they came out clean! Did you know nearly 96% of people waste time pre washing their dishes?? If you want more facts, check out this survey!

And not only does it help clean your dishes but Cascade also helps in keeping your dishwasher clean too.

Prep for the Holidays with Best Buy

 Boil water in less than 2 minutes? Now we are talking! When it comes to the Holidays, we normally have big family gathering and cook enormous meals so that means prepping a lot of food at once.  

I am a little bit of a kitchen appliance junkie and am always looking for the next best product to make my like easier in the kitchen since I love to cook so much. 

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 8.40.59 PM

The newest thing in cooking is induction cooking that enables you to boil water in less than two minutes like with the Frigidaire FGIF3061NF plus induction. It reduces clean up time because spills don’t burn and it can boil water in under 2 minutes. This Frigidaire range also includes a convection oven which circulates the air in the oven for quicker baking time.  

And have I told you that I dream about getting a double oven. That has been on my wish list for years and now best buy has a double oven that lets you cook two dishes at two different temperatures at once like the Whirlpool WGG555S0BS but still fits within the space of a standard range. How amazing is that??!

This was last christmas at our annual family dinner and I cannot wait for this year. It’s always a special time since most of my family loves to cook and there is something special about sharing such a special meal together.

Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker Review…It’s Slow Cooker Season!

 *I was given a slow cooker free of charge from Hamilton Beach but all opinions are my own.

slow cooker 

Does anyone else feel like fall is slow cooker season? I use my slow cooker all year long but there is something about the fall that makes cooking in the slow cooker, makes my home feel so homey. 

IMG_5303 

Hamilton Beach sent me their Set N’ Forget Slow cooker to try and and it’s official, I am in love!

This slow cooker has all the bells in whistles you would ever need!  

This slow cooker is perfect for the stay at home mom who, like me, 4 o’clock sneaks up on them and can’t think of a thing to cook because you have 4 kids running around your house or the working mom who is away from home all day and needs to get dinner planned out before they leave for work.

I made 2 dishes in this crock pot to test it out.

First I made a good ole roast. It’s not a fancy reason, just a roast and gravy with carrots and potatoes but the trick is to cook it long enough so the roast just falls apart when you serve it.

I basically just threw a few ingredient in it and let it slow cook for about 8 hours.

IMG_5304

I used the amazing thermometer to check and see the progress and make sure it was cooked to a safe temperate. I am a little crazy about making sure my meats are cooked the the right temperature so I am obsessed with this thermometer you can plug right into the slow cooker. There is also a hole on the top of the lid so you don’t even have to take the lid off to check the temperature!

IMG_5324 

The roast turned out to perfection!

Product features: 

  • Three (3) choices for easy, automatic cooking: program, probe and manual
  • Probe mode is perfect for cooking large cuts of meat or for recipes that require food to reach a certain temperature
  • Thermometer probe reads the actual temperature of food as it cooks; the temperature is displayed on the slow cooker control panel
  • Travel-friendly design secures contents en route to parties, potlucks, family gatherings and tailgating
  • The lid securely seals in place with sturdy wire clips on each handle
  • 6 quart removable stoneware crock fits a 6 lb. chicken or a 4 lb. roast
  • Wraparound, even heat cooks food evenly and consistently
  • Full-grip handles make carrying heavy meals easier
  • Power interrupt protection keeps slow cooker on during a brief power outage
  • Questions are supported by a toll-free call center located in the U.S.
  • Backed with a one-year warranty 

I have owned a lot of slow cookers in my day and this one beats them all! It was easy to figure out how to use for the first time. Some appliance I feel like need a crash course on how to use them but this one was simple and I appreciated that. When we were done eating, it was easy to clean up and store away for the next time use. 

 IMG_5328  

Now for dish #2. I wasted to try a sweet dish..oh let’s me honest, I have been craving a mug of this white hot chocolate since last year so I coldntt wait to whip it up in the Hamilton Beach Slow cooker.

This is seriously one of my favorite recipes my friend Ashley gave to me. The minute it felt a tab bit chilly outside, I had to make some!

This was adapted from Kara’s party ideas.

Hamilton Beach Slow Cooker Review…It’s Slow Cooker Season!
Author: 
 
Ingredients
  • 1 can 14 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 1½ cups heavy whipping cream (who needs a wasteline, right?)
  • 6 cups milk
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (You can do semi sweet, dark, milk or if your feeling crazy, white chocolate. It’s my fav!)
  • Instructions
Instructions
  1. Add milk, whipping cream and vanilla extract to crock pot and stir. Add chocolate chips and mix in.
  2. Cover and heat on low setting until all chocolate has melted. Around 2 hours or place on high for 30 minutes.

I let this simmer all day since it was cold outside and I wanted to grab a hot cup anytime I felt the need, and it didn’t burn the sides like it normally does. It also didn’t burn on the bottom when I forgot to stir the chocolate. It just simply melted all the ingredients slowly and to perfection.

So whether your making something sweet or savory, this white hot chocolate is always a crowd pleaser at my house!

News for Newborns with Pampers giveaway

 This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% minepampers 

For every new parent, sometimes coming home from the hospital can be a scary event. I remember having my 1st child and thinking as I am leaving the hospital “Why are they letting me go home, I have NO IDEA, what I am doing!”. 3 more kids later, that part got easier and having a newborn has become 2nd nature.

I remember in the hospital being treated like royalty with Pampers diapers and wipes and they become my diaper and wipes of choice. There is something about their newborn diapers that are so soft and their wipes are so gentle. 

If you follow my blog regular you know my youngest is 1 so I wasn’t in need of these products I was sent but I knew I could find someone who was. There are SO many products out there especially for when you have a newborn but I think these products are must have’s!

The Pampers wipes and diapers along with a diaper genie and munchkin diaper caddy have always been my go to products when I have a newborn at home.

At our local church we work with a program called “God Behind Bars” where we minster to and help ladies at a local prison. I was given word of a lady who had just gotten released and was about to deliver a brand new baby. The only problem is she literally had nothing and was not prepared. If you have had a baby you know how expensive these little nuggets can be so I loaded up all my baby goodies we were done with after having our last child as well as the new goodies I was sent from Pampers. 

I have a lot of friends who are pregnant but I cannot imagine literally having nothing and worrying about what I would do when I came home from the hospital. And I don’t show this to brag but just encourage, if it’s car load of used toys and brand new Pampers goodies, pay it forward is what matters. 

IMG_5421

And for all you first time mom’s, Pampers has come up with an amazing info graphic on normal bowel movements for little ones. I know I always had questions about all my kids and this graphic let’s you know what’s normal and whats not! Check it out on the link below.
