Keeping Baby Safe On the Go - Exploring the RECARO Performance Denali Travel System {Giveaway}


I'm thrilled to be partnering with RECARO for today's post. As a parent, the safety and well being of my children are top priority. At home and on-the-go, I want to make sure they're protected at all times. There are times that I'm quickly reminded that I don't have control over everything, no matter how much I want to. A few weeks ago, we were involved in a car accident on our way home from a blogger event. Typically, my husband doesn't attend these events with me but because I was bringing the baby and I wasn't familiar with the area, I asked him if he wouldn't mind driving me. It turns out that was the best decision I've ever made. Being involved in an accident with the baby in the car was one of the scariest moment of my life. Thankfully everyone was ok but from that moment on, our lives were changed.

I'm not real big on watching award shows. Usually I'll watch the red carpet or better yet just hop on the internet to catch a quick look at what everyone is wearing. I do love the dresses and seeing what each star will wear but that's about it. One awards show I do enjoy watching though, is the Kids' Choice Awards. Maybe because most of my days are spent watching kid shows or maybe it's because my oldest is actually excited to watch it and the excitement is rubbing off on me.

Think Spring With These Delicious Lemon Blueberry Mini Bundt Cakes

Nothing scream spring and summer to me like a tall refreshing glass of lemonade. It reminds me of the little lemonade stand that my son used to set up at his grandmother's house on warm, sunny days. That tall refreshing glass of lemonade always tasted so good. When I think of Country Time Lemonade, I immediately think of my grandparents. They always had a canister in their house and there may have been a time or two that I would sneak a spoonful of that powdered mix while they were making a pitcher for us to drink. Ah…..childhood memories and the things we did when we were kids. Now that I'm a mom preparing my own family get togethers, I see all the hard work that goes into holiday preparation. With Easter right around the corner (um…where did March go??) and dinner being hosted at my house, I needed to come up with some delicious dessert options. These Lemon Blueberry Mini Bundt Cakes are everything I wanted and then some. Seriously this may be the best dessert I've ever made. They're that darn good.

Who Are You When You're Hungry?

#WhenImHungry #CollectiveBias

I'll be the first to admit my attitude shines when I'm hungry. I don't like having an attitude and neither does my poor husband. Especially since he's the one who has to deal with me most days. I get hungry at the weirdest times too. It doesn't matter that I just ate breakfast or lunch but the minute I get in the car to go somewhere I'm all of a sudden starving. So then I think to myself, hmmm…. let me just grab a small fry or something small to hold me over. Then the next thing you know I've got a number one with large sides and/or a dessert. Not to mention the fact that I'll eat like five fries and I'm stuffed. I don't know why or what it is about being in the car and needing to eat.

Hawaiian Chicken Sliders
The sports fanatics in my house are my husband and son but that doesn't stop me from getting excited about games. I love putting together cute outfits for the baby and making delicious food to serve my hubby and his buddies. I try to make sure I serve something I know the guys will like. I really don't want to be experimenting in the kitchen when emotions run high during a game. Knowing we were having company this weekend, I wanted to make something easy so I went with these Hawaiian Chicken Sliders. With only four ingredients thrown together in my slow cooker, these little sandwiches were amazing. My secret ingredient - Cherry Coke. A tall glass of Cherry Coke is my weakness. Some people have a Diet Coke obsession but me, I'm a Cherry Coke girl all the way.

It's officially Spring and in just a few short weeks we'll all be ditching the jeans and boots for shorts and sandals. I'm especially looking forward to Spring and Summer this year with the baby. I can't wait to get out and take long walks, trips to the beach and so much more. We've been cooped up way to long! So it's time to get my skin all pretty and ready for those shorts and dresses. Winter reaks havoc on my skin so I'm ready for a change starting with my body wash to help get my skin Spring ready. I found these new Softsoap Fresh and Glow body washes that I thought would be perfect to get my skin looking fabulous.

Bring Home Night at The Museum Secret of the Tomb Out on DVD Now!

A few weeks ago we received a fun package in the mail. I knew my son was going to love it. Being big fans of the Night at the Musuem movies, who wouldn't love receiving a package like this! Night at the Musuem Secret of the Tomb was on my son's wish list so he was pretty excited when the movie arrived. Then he found out Dexter was on the loose and coming to stay with us during Spring Break and couldn't wait for the package to arrive!
