Aquaball Makes A Perfect Stocking Stuffer

Disclosure: No formal compensation was received, a product was provided.


AquaBall Naturally Flavored Water, enhanced with vitamins, provides parents and kids a healthier alternative to traditional sodas and other high caloric, artificially colored and flavored beverages.

  • Essential B and C Vitamins
  • Natural Fruit Flavors
  • Sweetened with Stevia
  • Packaged for freshness and safety

We first saw these in the store and my kids immediately ran to them because they feature all their favorite Disney characters, like Elsa and Olaf or Dusty from Planes.  When we tried them my kids thought they were very good. They said it was sweet but still tasted like water and that they could drink it all the time, and asked for it to be packed in their lunches for school.
Their favorite flavor is fruit punch, they said it tastes the most like juice. Most of their friends are drinking these at school too, so they know there popular.
Aquaball makes a perfect stocking stuffer this holiday season, it’s small and can fit in any stocking plus you can pick up a bottle usually for a little over one dollar.



I went out and bought more thinking they would be a perfect stocking stuffer in addition to just being something my kids liked, there are so many fun things to do with the Aquaball bottle. You can make ornaments for the tree or fill it with colored sand. Check out all the fun activities you can do with Aquaball on Pinterest.

Pepperoni Grilled Cheese #HormelFamily

Disclosure: I’ve partnered with Hormel Foods as part of the Hormel Foods Extended Family Blogger Program. Throughout the year I’ll be receiving product, coupons, giveaways and promotions. However, no payment was given or expected for posting about the program, and as always, all opinions given here are fully my own.

One of my favorite foods during the winter is Grilled Cheese and soup. They both are hot and ready to keep you warm on those cold nights. Although sometimes grilled cheese just becomes a little plain to me.

I have started spicing it up a bit with different things like Hormel Pepperoni, ham and bacon.

First we tried the pepperoni grilled cheese. It was actually really good. My son kept asking for more.



The bacon was good but my son said it made it taste to much like a bacon burger.


Have you tried any toppings with your Grilled Cheese? I suggest it, so good.

Holiday: Shopkins Are A Holiday Hit #HGG14

Product was received, all opinions are my own.


Shopkins are the super cute, fun, small characters that live in a BIG shopping world! Shopkins Are A Holiday hit for 2014, and my kids want to collect them all.

We received a Shopkins Mall Play Set to try out for the holidays. My kids have been collecting Shopkins for weeks so adding the play set just overjoyed them. You can put the Shopkins through a actual checkout and bag them.


The ply set even comes with a small shopping cart, it’s my sons favorite item in the pay set. He puts all his Shopkins in it and pushes them around.



I am learning all about the world of Shopkins and that all the Shopkins come in categories, common, rare, ultra rare etc. So my kids are on the hunt for the ones that are hard to find.

Moose Toys has just started releasing Season 2 of the Shopkins series, so now we are on the hunt for those that include all new characters.
