Enjoy A Campfire Anywhere, Anytime With The Pop-Up Pit


Disclosure: I received a Pop-Up Pit at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

 Our family loves camping, being outdoors, and especially campfires! For my kids, roasting hotdogs and marshmallows over the fire is probably their favorite part. They'd go camping just for that alone! Some weekends are just too busy or the weather doesn't corporate for an overnight under the stars but now, thanks to the Pop-Up Pit from Fireside Outdoor, that no longer means we can't still enjoy an evening by the fire! I've finally found a product that makes cooking over and enjoying a roaring fire a possibility no matter where the adventure takes us!

Four Things You Need For The Perfect Girls Weekend Getaway

 

Disclosure: I received items featured below to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

 A couple months ago, my best friend from college, Shree and I finally got with the times and started FaceTiming each other. It was so great to catch up but it also reminded me how much I missed her! Shortly after, while my husband Ben and I were out to lunch after church, he leaned over and said, "You should buy a plane ticket to go down and spend a long weekend with Shree". Needless to say, I was elated! Since Shree lives in Alabama and I live in West Virginia, seeing each other frequently has never been an option, in fact it had been eight years since we'd seen each other. I knew my girls getaway was going to be absolutely fantastic, but I also knew there were a few things I needed to make my trip just perfect and I'm excited to share them with you today! Here's four products you are going to want to have for your next girls' getaway!

Fall Asleep In Warmth & Comfort With Berkshire Blanket


Disclosure: I received the item above at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

It's almost time for the leaves to start changing colors as the cooler weather comes swooping in and the season change from warm summer nights to the chilly evenings of autumn. Mother Nature likes to change it up in her own way with bright colors and fun textures so why not follow in her footsteps and update your own dwelling place with a new bedding set from Berkshire Blanket? We got to experience the warmth and comfort of their Reversible VelvetLoft and Sherpa Comforter and Sham Set this past week in an all new review. All I can say is "Sweet Dreams"!

Scooby-Doo And The Gourmet Ghost

Disclosure: I received the item above at no cost to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 

What's not to love about the classics? As a Mom, there's nothing I appreciate more than being able to pop in a movie for my kids while I need some quiet to finish up work, or to help pass the time when we're traveling (three cheers for whoever made all dreams come true by installing DVD players in vehicles!) and not have to worry about content. Scooby-Doo has always been a family favorite with exciting mysteries, lovable characters, and not-too-scary villains that we all know from the very beginning aren't real. Our family is also a big fan of Food Network cooking shows and competitions so when we found out that Scooby-Doo and Shaggy teamed up with Bobbly Flay and Giada De Laurentis, I knew this was a movie we had to check out! And what a fun movie it was!

Mamoo Bags Are Ready For Adventure!



Disclosure: I received the bags featured in this post at no cost to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. 

 As a family with three homeschooling kids ,our school backpacks don't always look like everyone else's. Instead of learning in the classroom, the kids and I take every opportunity to learn by experiencing things in the wide open world. This year I'm planning lots of field trips and I wanted to find a backpack more suitable than the typical school backpack. Heavy backpacks are great for hauling books to and from school, but if you are looking for a bag that kids will be excited to take to the park, the beach, the zoo, or on any adventure their feet can get them to, bags from Mamoo have just what you need!

Stuffed Avocados


I have a lot of ground beef in my freezer and I was racking my brain to try to think of some different ways to use it all up (I can only eat so much spaghetti). I wanted to prepare something light, fresh, and easy for dinner tonight and voila, my stuffed avocados were born! If you have avocado fans in your house they will enjoy these as much as my family did! We have a family of 6 so I made enough for each person to have two halves.

Power Ball Recipe



My kids have a new found excitement for a little snack we call Power Balls. This no-bake treat is a great choice if you want a healthier option for baked cookies. They are easy to prepare and any home chef can change them up to their personal preference. In our house, one Power Ball silences those claims of starvation and satisfies the cravings for sweets. They've really become a staple around our house!
