BestOfMeBDOSleeve

Based on the #1 New York Times Best Seller from celebrated author Nicholas Sparks comes this tender, romantic drama about the timeless power of love. When former high school sweethearts Dawson and Amanda (James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan) meet at a loved one’s funeral 20 years after tragedy separated them, their love is reignited. As they recall and relive the past, they come to a deeper understanding about the choices they’ve made. Also starring Luke Bracey and Liana Liberato, and featuring beautiful scenery along with music by Lady Antebellum, The Best of Me is a powerfully romantic story of love, hope and second chances.

This movie is a must see chick flick.
The Best Of Me on Blu-ray and dvd on February 3, 2015. I am giving away a blu-ray copy to one lucky reader.

Finally A Bed He Likes

I have been struggling to get my 7 year old to sleep in his own bed all night. He ha our own bed, a queen size bed all to himself.

He will get scared in the middle of the night and sneak into my room or his sisters room to sleep. I have tried different things to get him to sleep in his own room to no avail.

Finally we agreed on if I bought him bed sheets that he liked, he would start sleeping in his own bed. So I agreed. I never thought of it because we had so many bed sets already.

But he finally has his own set up. Finally a bed he likes.

Lets hope it works in the long run.

We found these complete bed set at Kmart for $35.99, and decided on it because it was mostly red and black. The colors of Lightning McQueen.

Gearing Up For The Playoffs #HormelFamily #Playoffs

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.

The playoffs are this weekend and we will be watching as a family. We aren’t rooting for any particular team, but it’s quality time together and something we all enjoy.

When the playoffs are on, we always get lots of snacks and food for the 6 hour playoffs. There is 2 games so plenty of food.

Our favorites to have on hand are of course Chi Chi’s chips and salsa, that is usually the first app that gets eaten. ChiChi’s Tortilla Rounds are perfect corn crisp chips, we paired it with mild thick and chunky salsa, and also salsa con queso.

My kids love cheese and crackers, so I always make sure to have those on our family nights. I love Hormel party trays, because it’s no mess and easy to prepare. I picked up a new tray to try which consists of Crackers cheese and Turkey. I have always loved Turkey more than any other lunch meat. So this was one of my favorite snacks and a little healthier too.

So who is gearing up for the playoffs with all their favorite foods.

My Kids Don’t Believe In Mythical Creatures

When my kids were young it was fun for them to see Santa Clause and the Easter bunny and know that those characters brought them gifts. Usually most parents will go along with it until their children ask them if they are real.

We chose to tell our kids at a very young age the truth and that if they wanted to play the game then it was fine, but they needed to know the truth. They were five, six and seven when we told them, so now my kids don’t believe and we are fine with that.

There are multiple reasons we made this decision. First we didn’t want to lie, we want our children to know that honesty is the best policy. Telling the truth is always the right thing. We also felt that we were in way brainwashing our children into believing things that are mythical. If you believe in Santa why not believe in Fairies, genies and the Loch Ness Monster. As my kids got older they started to ask for things we couldn’t afford and I hate to see them disappointed on Christmas or Easter.

After the truth came out, my kids were fine no upsets. They still go get their picture taken with santa and the Easter Bunny just for fun. They play along with their friends at school to not spoil it for them.

The downside to them knowing would be that I am a softee and the know if they are not good, they will still get presents. They are still to young to anything that bad tough, so we will see. But I mean come on has anyone ever really given their kids coal.

At what age did you tell your kids?

Taco Tuesday With Wholly Guacamole #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.

My kids love to do a taco night and we go all out with Tacos, burritos, fully loaded nachos, salsa and more. It’s one of our guilty pleasure nights. I have never been big on guacamole, but my kids and husband love it. The problem is that they really don’t eat that much of it and a lot goes to waste when I make it myself or buy a tub of it.

dev-guac-large-snackclassic

Hormel sent me the Wholly Guacamole minis and they worked out perfectly. Didn’t have to worry about food getting wasted and most importantly there was no fighting between my 3 kids over who got the bowl.

classic guacamole in fun, 100 calorie, portable cups. Peel the lid back a little for an easy squeeze or peel the lid back all the way for delicious dipping. This is an easy guacamole to love. It’s simple
guacamole goodness in the convenience of a travel cup. Stays
good in your freezer for up to 3 months.

What Will Be in 2015 #NewYear

2015 will have a lot of unknowns for me. This is the year that we may possibly be leaving the New York area in peruse of other options.

My husband will finally be graduating with his PHD, it’s been a long journey but well worth it.

Unknown

For No Time Mommy, I am hoping to take the blog up a notch with viewership and content. As I will be relocating this year, No Time Mommy will not be venturing out to many events this year.

So in other words as a mother it is going to be another crazy stressful year with kids, a big move and so much more.

What will be in 2015 for you?
