Potty Training Party

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PottyTrainTogether #CollectiveBias Potty training is a BIG event. As a parent I look forward to this day just as much as my kids look forward to their birthdays. Why not celebrate it just as much?! I have potty trained 4 kids so far. My son is my last one and I am SO excited. I decided that this time around we are going to have a big potty training party. We are going to celebrate with ...

Eat Smart Bok Choy

This time of the year when the weather starts warming up I begin thinking about summer. One way to get ready for summer is to focus again on good nutrition. To celebrate National Nutrition month my family is consuming Eat Smart's Gourmet Vegetable seven unique salad kits. All look amazing and taste very different...I know because I have tried them! We have been experiencing some different tastes because of the superfoods included in these kits but we have discovered new is also good! ...

Kraft Macaroni and Cheese with Veggie Mobile

I like to empower my kids. I like to teach them to become self-sufficient. One way I do this is through cooking. I love teaching my kids how to make a simple meal. My 12 year old knows how to make Kraft Macaroni and Cheese all by herself. My 7 year old had a desire to make it for everyone. Instead of being in the kitchen myself showing her the way I thought I could empower my 12 year old to teach her sister. The best way to solidify your knowledge of something is to teach it to someone ...

Soldier Hollow Ice Castles

The Ice Castles are back and open at Soldier Hollow in Midway, Utah! My girls were so excited to see the sculptures again this year. This is one destination they look forward to each year. In fact they want to go right when it opens and then again just before they close to see how much taller it has grown. Each day 10,000 icicles are grown each day and placed throughout the ice castles. The giant ice features are better then ever this year! The artists used an entire acre of land as their ...

Christmas in Color & Easy Christmas Snack Mix

I am so excited to be working with Christmas in Color this year. The creators from the Midway Ice Castles have made something else spectacular this year called Christmas in Color. It is a mile long light show in Kearns, Utah created by world-renowned lighting artist and Utah native Richard Holdman. The location is literally right next to the Olympic Oval in an empty lot. When we showed up we were asked if we had tickets before getting in line. It is very important to buy your tickets online ...

Save on Kidgets Diapers at Family Dollar

I have tried many different diapers with my 5 kids. When I was offered a chance to work on a sponsored campaign on behalf of Family Dollar, I was excited to try Kidgets Diapers. This is one diaper that amazingly I have not previously tried. Parents with young children spend an enormous amount of money on diapers. These are a necessity so we endure the cost, however it never stopped me from finding better deals. Anything to save a little here and there is a good thing. Kidgets diapers ...

Chalk Couture

Good old fashioned chalk boards are back. Perhaps not in schools, but in homes, stores and at parties! Chalkboards allow your creativity to take over. You don't need to be super creative or perfect the first time because if you don't like it, just erase and start all over again. Let me introduce you to Tara Roark and her company Chalk Couture. She has elevated the plain old chalkboard to new heights. Here are 3 reasons I love Chalk Couture. The chalk boards are magnet boards. I find ...

How I Reward Myself at the End of the Day

Dinner is put away, chores are done, kids are showered and in bed, now it is time for ME. What can I do to reward myself for making it through the day? I ask myself this question on those especially hard days. The answer varies of course for me as I'm sure it would for you. Some nights it is very unhealthy but for those nights when I want to be more healthy I turn to Muller Dessert Inspired Yogurt. This is not like the yogurt you have for breakfast, a quick lunch or a snack for my ...

Cinco de Mayo Party Food and Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

My family is SO busy! I have 5 kids and am coordinating 15 schedules right now. It is a lot! If things are not planned and on the calendar they are often forgotten. One of those things is Cinco de Mayo. I usually wake up that morning and think "oh no now what do I do?" Luckily I have a plan this year. Jose Ole to the rescue! They have fun frozen snacks. When I do remember, usually a few days before, while I am at the grocery store all I need to do is grab a couple boxes of Mini Tacos and ...

A Culinary Adventure + Giveaway with Raw Spice Bar

I'm really excited to be working with Raw Spice Bar today. I love learning about new -to me- companies and products. My family was able to go on a culinary adventure around the world without leaving our home. How great is that! We frequently talk about where we want to travel to whether it is in the US or abroad. We were able to discover Persia through new tastes and new smells in our home. We didn't need to pack and we didn't need to spend a lot of money. Raw Spice Bar is a company ...

Create a Blurb Photobook for your Memories

I've been trying to figure out what to do with my photos and how to organize them quickly. I was on top of things before I added a few more babies to my family.  I spend more time with my kids taking pictures then I do putting them into photo books. My photos are organized and ready to go. If only I can find the right time and the right way to quickly get back on top of ...

Discovering Utah: Ice Castles

I love to discover all the fun places Utah has to offer! We had an amazing opportunity to visit the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah. This year it is being built at the Soldier Hollow Resort located at 2002 Soldier Hollow Road, Midway, Utah, 84049. My Little Chefs were super excited when I told them we were going to visit. Little Chef H wasn't so sure what I was talking about so I pulled up the Ice Castles website and showed her what we would be seeing. That is when she couldn't stop askig if ...

Panda Face Food Art

My Little Chefs have always loved playing with their food. When they go through periods of not wanting lunch we change it up to make it seem different. We might use a lunch tray instead of a plate, deconstruct their sandwich, put things on a stick, anything out of the ordinary. We do the same for afternoon snacks when everyone gets home because it is fun, they are always hungry at that time. I thought it would be fun to make an after school snack using one of our favorite play foods, ...

Tie Dye Butterfly Shirt Embellishment

This is a sponsored post. I have been compensated by product or payment. All opinions and experiences are truthful and my own. This post contains paid links. School has been in for a month now, because we are on year round school. It seems like we are always worried about school clothes for one reason or another. With 5 kids I have plenty of shirts that look nice except for that stain on the front right where everyone can see it. I hate to get rid of a shirt like this so I let my kids ...

What is the face of your dinner table?

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Barilla, but opinions are my own. Today we are getting real. A lot of times we do not want others to see what goes on behind our closed doors. But, today we are sharing with you what our table looks like at meal time. Sometimes we have happy faces. Sometimes we have angry faces. Sometimes we have sad faces. Sometimes we laugh. Sometimes we fight. Sometimes someone doesn't want to be talked to. Sometimes someone doesn't ...

MercoBox…if you are in Utah you need to read this!

I had the wonderful opportunity to review a MercoBox from MercoLocal. I was excited about this opportunity because I was not even vaguely familiar with this product or company. All I knew was at the beginning of each month MercoBoxes are delivered and each month the customer is surprised with the contents. The common thread is that all the products in the box are from locally owned businesses in Utah. How fun is that! I would like to know what is made here in Utah so that I can support those ...

Ice Castles in Midway, Utah

We had the opportunity this week to visit the Ice Castles in Midway, Utah. This was our first time at the Ice Castles, but because we had just seen Frozen so I knew my Little Chefs were going to make parallels to the movie and enjoy this experience even more. We arrived at dusk, just before the sun set, which seems to be SO early now days! We were able to see the Ice Castles in some light and then enjoyed them in the dark. The castles are lit from the inside with changing colors. They glow in ...

Sponsored Post: Just Dance Kids 2014

We do a lot of dancing and a lot of listening to music at our house. Recently, the Just Dance Kids 2014 game for XBOX 360 KINECT was sent to us to try out. My Little Chefs have had a great time dancing while listening to music and learning new moves! They especially love turning it on when friends are over. We all smile, laugh and cheer each other on while having so much fun! In fact, we have so much fun their friends request to play the game when they are over! As a parent I'm ...

Sponsored Post: Green Giant Veggie Snacks

Not only has school already started for us, but so has soccer season! Practices are keeping us busy each night. This Saturday is the first of the games. Spending so much time outside waiting and watching I have to be creative to keep my Little Chefs happy. One way is to make sure they are fed. I have found if they are hungry they are not happy anywhere, especially at the soccer field where they need to stay for a predetermined time. We are not able to leave whenever we want which makes it ...

Sponsored Post: Arby’s Grand Turkey Club Sandwich

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Arby's for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.   Now doesn't that picture make you hungry?! Does it make you want to reach out and take a bite? It looks like a sandwich I want to order when I know I will have 30 minutes on my own without Little Chef interruptions. It is a sandwich I want to slowly savor and enjoy without rushing to be somewhere or to stop in the middle to clean up a spill. It is a sandwich worthy of "me" ...

Fla-Vor-Ice Freezer Pops

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Jel Sert for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When I was young I spent a lot of my summer outside riding my bike to the school to ride in safety on the playground, to the park for tennis or to the pool for fun. There is only one summertime treat I know of you can eat while riding a bike...Fla-Vor-Ice! Cut the top off and let it hang out of your mouth while you ride. No hands are needed! My Little Chefs play outside just as much ...

Sponsor Post: Wonderful Brands – Wonderful Snacking & GIVEAWAY

I am sure all of you are familiar with Pom Wonderful Pomegranets - well, did you know that the Wonderful Brand also offers snacking nuts?!  We are always on the hunt for something new, something different, and even something a bit healthier for the Little Chefs - and myself for snacks. In the craziness and fun of summer - going to playdates, the beach or pool, swimming lessons, soccer, camping or traveling - we need snacks that are easy to grab on the go, and that will satisfy hungry ...

Rite Aid Tugaboos

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rite Aid Tugaboos diapers. Are you like me and need to try out every brand of diapers until you find one you like? Maybe I'm a little strange, but I've had kids in diapers for years now and I have been through quite a few diapers and brands of diapers. My favorite place to shop for diapers is Rite Aid because it is right around the corner and because they have some great diaper sales. Did you know Rite Aid has their own brand of ...
