S’mores Popcorn

As if you’re not already salivating from my previous Chocolate Chip Cookie S’mores post, I am back with more! I couldn’t stop at just one and I got totally into the s’mores last night. Literally!

Did you know that the first s’more recipe was published in the Girl Scouts Handbook in 1927? This now popular snack was called “some mores” way back when. And clearly, it’s fitting because you always want more!

I’ve decided to put a twist on popcorn for this years National S’mores Day. Sure, everyone loves popcorn with their movie, but what can be better than s’more popcorn?

This snack is everything s’mores and all you need is a good movie
…and some napkins!

Easy Clothespin Princess Dolls

Summer has been quite the struggle (insert sigh). We ended up keeping Bunbun home and ditching the camp this year. It’s really been great having both kids home and spending time with them, but it’s been super difficult to keep her busy. My little guy is so easy going for being only three. He will find something to keep himself busy in any situation; Bunbun always wants something to do. A craft, a game, a movie, swimming…something! She just has to be busy. She loves to collect things and is currently into the Shopkins craze, which is probably going to make me broke very soon.

One of the ways we keep cool on our hot summer days here in South Florida is by eating watermelon. It’s a cool snack, packed with water to keep us hydrated and the kids love it!

Keeping Your Pets Cool This Summer

Sophie is two and a half now, but her energy level is still that of a puppy! Boxers are such loving and playful beings. Yes, she gets into a lot of mischief but the good definitely outweighs the bad. The kids love her and she is totally not bothered by them at all.
During the summer, we spend a lot of time outdoors. Mostly by the pool where Sophie will keep a close eye on the kids with me. She often follows Bunbun back and forth as she swims. It’s the cutest thing! However, what’s not cute is, heat stroke in pets. Heat stroke can do some serious damage to your pets, so you should check out insurance on pet insurance reviews to ensure your pet is protected if anything were to happen.

Strawberry Glazed Donuts

Oh how I just love summer. Relaxing, crafting, spending time with my kids and….Strawberries! They bring back such fond memories of my childhood. I remember when I was a little girl, my grandparents would take me out to the strawberry fields every year and we would pick fresh strawberries. I remember putting them in my little green basket and how sweet they tasted. Just perfect! Theres nothing like fresh strawberries in the summer to keep you feeling refreshed.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

Now that summer is here, we need to beat the Florida heat and stay cool and refreshed. So this week, I broke out the popsicle molds! Of course the kids were excited and totally watching the clock, waiting for their chance at one of my strawberry lemonade popsicles.

We used to buy store-bought popsicles, but the amount of sugar, high-fructose corn syrup and dyes really bothered us. We do our best to only eat organics and shop exclusively at Whole Foods. Don’t get me wrong, there are many conventional items we still purchase from time to time, but mostly everything in our home is Organic and GMO Free. Just like these popsicles!
