Back to School With OshKosh - Giveaway



Right now your days may be filled with water balloon fights, swimming pools, bubbles, sidewalk chalk, and chasing the ice cream truck -  but back to school season will be here before we know it. It is the saddest time of the year for me - I love summer so much! Probably because of the cold weather that is soon to follow. Wisconsin winters are not for the weak, guys! I am not playing!

Some of my friends’ children are already back to school and are hitting the books! New teachers, new friends and, of course, new outfits are all exciting parts of this transition. Style and self-expression go hand in hand, and we know that the perfect outfit is a MUST for successfully entering the school year. That's why OshKosh B'gosh is offering one of my readers the chance to win a $50 gift card.






I loved OshKosh B’gosh when my boys were little. The clothing is a great quality without braking the bank. And the outfits are perfect for either your little fashionista or your dig in the dirt kid.
Winner will be randomly selected by PromoSimple and prize will be delivered by OshKosh. Good luck!


What’s that one piece of clothing your little one refuses to take off and how do you maximize its potential?

Paleo Hamburger Salsa - The Fastest and Easisest Dinner you will Ever Make



It's hump day!!  Que the camel. Finally we are on the downward slide of the week. I am tired. I did NOT want to make dinner tonight. Mr. Incredible will usually make something but we both were just - blah. I didn't want to order food because for one thing - I can't eat anything that is driven to my home. For another - the boys eat so much and we all eat dinner leftovers for lunch the next day so it is like ordering for 10 instead of 4. That adds up and momma has Disney trips to pay for. Not happening. Time to call in my emergency back-up dinner - Hamburger Salsa!

What I Have Learned About Life from My Single Friends



So I have been married since like 1786.  OK not THAT long! I would be dead and writing to you from beyond the grave. Creepy! I am married to my high school sweetheart. I have really not even dated anyone else. I certainly lucked out and hit the jackpot with Mr. Incredible. While I am living my 2.5 kid life with the dog and the picket fence – not everyone I grew up with went down the same path.

Soften Your Skin for Less with This DIY Body Scrub

I freaking love summer. L O V E it. If I could sit outside and lie on the grass in bare feet all day looking at the clouds travel by - I would. Summer to me is longer nights, warmer weather, cookouts, beach days, flip flips, shorts, hikes, farmer's markets, festivals, and FUN! It also means us northerners are bearing our glaringly white skin to the world. While it is unsafe to tan that white skin, I still want the epidermis I bare to be nice and soft.

Give Your Kids a Good Old Fashioned Summertime


If you took all of your favorite childhood memories and wrote them down, I am willing to bet most of them happened in the summer. Long nights, warm weather, no school, and playing outside - a kid can't ask for anything more. Between riding bikes, running through the sprinkler, and playing with friends - what could be better? Oh wait... I KNOW! Remember after a long summer day when you are covered in sweat, dirt, and grass stains (so before your bath!) those magical nights when your mom would hand you a big 'ol scoop of ice cream on crunchy cone? Yup. You just hit the kid lottery!
