7 Great Gifts for Dad this Father's Day

Do you have trouble finding the perfect gift for Dad every year? Are you tired of giving slippers and T-shirts? I swear, it’s like climbing Mt. Everest every year as I search high and low for the perfect gift. I want to get him cool stuff that I know he’ll love but he doesn’t even make it easy for me. I see gadgets and widgets all over and he’s always interested but he can never make his mind up about what he wants! I go from store to store and to the mall at least twice. I’ve let the kids choose my Hubby’s gift for the past two years and we’ve ended up with slippers each time and a screwdriver last year, if I’m not mistaken. So, this year, we’ve decided to make a change. A friend of mine uses overstock.getyourcouponcodes.com to find good deals and she suggested looking at coupons for some inspiration. Since then, I use coupons all of the time and use several sites to find the latest deals and get the best savings.

Easy Easter Bark + PEEPS® Giveaway

The PEEPS® and PEEPS & COMPANY® products, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by PEEPS® and PEEPS & COMPANY®.

And just like that, Spring is in the air. Where does the time go? I feel like the year just started and here I am taking the kids to Easter egg hunts, dyeing eggs, making Easter bark and stuffing Easter baskets! We recently visited a local park with friends and had a great time! The kids hunted for eggs, dyed eggs in shaving cream and a new one for me; rice! I really love the effect of that technique and look forward to using it again sometime with my little ones.

These PEEPS® Rice Krispies Treats Pops are a fun and easy Easter treat for everyone to share!

We love Rice Krispies Treats and actually purchase them in bulk (don’t judge me). The kids love them and to be quite honest, if you look at the ingredients; they aren’t all that bad. I wanted to make something fun for the kids this Easter and thought, what better way than to pair my favorite PEEPS®  with my Rice Krispies Treats! You like that rhyming technique? Skills.

Holiday Blossom Christmas Tree Cookies and Betty Crocker Giveaway

With the holidays fast approaching, It’s always been my goal to be sure that my children know the reason for the season and that it’s better to give than to receive. I want them to know that it’s the little things in life that bring joy to others, and something so simple as bringing cookies to a neighbor can brighten their holiday spirits.

Baking cookies for the holidays has been a long standing tradition for us. We bake them together for some quality time and then bring them to our neighbors to spread cheer.

Want to spread your own cheer? Enter the two giveaways below for a chance to win $20 Pay Pal Cash!

This year, good ol’ Betty Crocker is by our side! My little guy is finally old enough to help in the kitchen with simple tasks and he loves it! It gives him a bit of independence and helps him to feel accomplished once he completes the recipe with me. He is such a sweetheart and loves to do for others. Even at 3 years old, he opens doors and waits for me everywhere we go. He will make an excellent husband some day. I am sure of that!


For our cookies this year, we picked up a couple bags of Betty Crocker cookie mix, Betty Crocker cupcake gems and kisses while on our weekly Wal-Mart shop. We went with the traditional Holiday Blossom Cookies this year, but added a little twist. Literally!

These Holiday Blossom Christmas tree cookies are quick, easy and done in no time!
