Halloween is tomorrow and when I was making dinner I was looking at all the ingredients and thought this would make a good pumpkin face.

SO I LET MY KIDS PLAY WITH THEIR FOOD!

So gave my kids a bunch of ingredients and let them have fun. I was making Cactus salad and pizza. Hormel Pepperoni and Dona Marie Tender cactus were used to make the fun faces.

They had so much fun and we were still able to have our cactus salad afterward

Thanksgiving is a month away and I am already planning exactly what we will be doing this year. I want everything to be perfect, I always overcook or undercook everything.

HomepageFeatures_0002_PerfectPortions_329_233

Thankfully, Butterball has tons of tips on their website to help you make the perfect turkey and sides of course.

  • Be prepared-let them know what you will be cooking and how they can help. Mix up the routine a little for their enjoyment.
  • help them feel like a cooking whiz-let them feel the part with a cooking apron and hat, plus let them have their own plastic measuring spoons and utensils.
  • safety first- remind them that the stove and knifes are adult jobs and they shouldn’t lick spoons, and always wash your hands.
  • assign the right tasks-assign tasks that are age appropriate and they can handle.
    have a blast-cooking can be a great way to bond with your child so relax and have fun.
  • If you have trouble at all on Thanksgiving, you can call the Butterball Turkey Talk Line 1800-Butterball (1800-288-8372).

What are your plans for Thanksgiving this year?

I have 2 Butterball giveaway gift checks. FREE TURKEYS

Our New Oral Care Routine #SPONSORED #MC

Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

For the past few weeks we have been working on our new oral care routine by using LISTERINE products. I have been trying to teach my kids the importance of brushing and flossing. After all they don’t want end up with cavities and other problems.

My kids have been getting into the routine every night Brush, Floss and then rinse. I love how LISTERINE has mouth wash specifically designed for kids that won’t their mouth uncomfortable, plus they love how it has their favorite characters. My daughter also loves how the LISTERINE FLOSS is minty between your teeth when you use it.

IMG_1075

IMG_1076

The LISTERINE HEALTHY WHITE GENTLE rinse is a little to strong for me, as there is a burning sensation, but I know it is working to keep my mouth fresh.
My biggest weakness is soda, I know it’s bad for your teeth, but it is one of the things I love to drink. That and coffee every now and again. So I make sure to brush and rinse as much as I can to keep my teeth white.

My favorite product though would have to be the FLOSSER. It can be a bit hard to get the floss to reach all the way to my back teeth. The FLOSSER helps and is gentle and easy on my teeth. The perfect way to make sure you get to floss every tooth. I have seen a big improvement in my teeth, and so has my dentist.

Has your oral care routine changed? Have you found the products that make you love to brush and care for your teeth?

You can find LISTERINE products at retailers nationwide, visit here to find the closest near you.

Unleash the fun at home with the hilarious comedy-adventure, DreamWorks Animation’s Mr. Peabody and Sherman! Mr. Peabody is an inventor, scientist and genius who just happens to be a dog. With his son Sherman, he will embark on the most extraordinary adventure imaginable as they race against time to repair history and save the future.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman is based upon the beloved characters that first appeared in in the late 1950s and early 1960s animated television series “Rocky and His Friends” and “The Bullwinkle Show,” produced by Jay Ward.

We isn’t get to see this movie in the theaters, so watching it for the first time was amazing. I didn’t know what to expect. The movie is just filled with amazing history facts. Even my husband was blown away and laughing. My kids just loved it and laughed almost the whole time.

Always Discreet Products #AlwaysDiscreetAtTarget

IMG_1063

I am only 30, but I have problems with bladder leakage at times. It’s to be expected though I have had 3 kids, and all my kids have been big babies.
When I sneeze or cough it’s the worst. I always have to make sure I have some kind of pantyliner on, or I will be running to change every few hours.
It can be embarrassing specially if I am out in public. I hate feeling like I am wearing a diaper though. So I always look for the thinnest liner I can find, Always Discreet is perfect.
