Honey Nut Raisin Snack Mix

Tracking PixelMost days I feel like my kids are asking for snacks all day long. I know I’m not the only one looking forward to school starting but for me, the main reason is because I know my kids will be busy and not thinking about their next snacking opportunity! Some days it feels like I’m in the kitchen all day long preparing meals or snacks for them. Because of this, I’m always on the lookout for fun and healthy snack options and with a little help from our sponsor California Raisins, I was so excited to whip up this Honey Nut Raisin Snack Mix for my kids.

Last week, I had the opportunity to attend a local blogger event hosted by California Raisins to talk about fun and nutritious snack ideas for back-to-school. Because they are so convenient and portable, California Raisins are the perfect choice for wholesome on-the-go snacking. We’re a busy family of 7, so on-the-go is in our vocabulary DAILY! I’m always a big fan of dried fruit for snacks, but did you know raisins are the MOST economical dried fruit, according to the USDA?

We had quite the spread of fun snacks topped off with raisins and it was delicious!

Raisins have always been a favorite healthy snack of mine. I love to eat them by themselves after a workout and just when I’m looking for something a little sweet but don’t want to dip in to something unhealthy and full of sugar. One of my boys loves to eat them by themselves and we often share our raisin snacks together. 

My kids love sweet snacks. Let’s be honest. I love sweet snacks, too! But, usually, those sweet snacks are not the healthiest option for what goes in to their little bodies. That’s why I’m so glad California Raisins come by their sweetness naturally. In addition to zero fat and no cholesterol, there’s no added sugar! Raisins also offer 9% of your daily fiber and potassium, and 6% of your daily iron (per quarter cup serving).

As an added bonus, research also suggests that among children, raisins as an after-school snack may prevent excessive caloric intake and increase satiety (or feeling full) when compared to snacks like chips or cookies.

I couldn’t wait to get home and try out one of the recipes from California Raisins for my own family! This Honey Nut Raisin Snack Mix was a hit with my family!

Hatch Chile Corn Salsa

I’m excited to be partnering with Market Street to bring you this Hatch Chile Corn Salsa recipe, however all opinions are my own.

August is Hatch Chile month at Market Street and they’re celebrating all month long by bringing you roastings, recipes, special Hatch products and more! I’ve never been a huge fan of super spicy food, but my husband is quite the opposite. He loves it all! The spicier, the better.

I wanted to see what all of the fuss was about so I made a trip to Market Street last weekend to see the roasting taking place at the store. I couldn’t believe how neat the set up was and while I was there, I got to try some for myself.

I couldn’t believe how neat the set up was and their roasting process was definitely not what I was expecting. It was bigger and even better! They start out by dumping boxes of Hatch chile in to these roasting bins.

They light the fire and the bin starts spinning, to roast the Hatch chiles as even as possible.

Once they’ve finished, they’re unloaded and separated in to baggies ready to be sold at the table under the tent.

I even got a chance to try a sample and realized the mild Hatch chiles were a little too mild and I definitely needed more spice! What a surprise for a girl who doesn’t like things to be too spicy!

I took home a half gallon bag of freshly roasted Hatch chiles and whipped up this Hatch Chile Corn Salsa for the rest of my family. With some tortilla chips to go with it, we were in snacking heaven!

 The best thing about these Hatch chiles is that the recipe possibilities are endless! I can’t wait to try our next recipe and I know I’ll definitely be pulling from the Hatch Chile Market Street Pinterest board!

The good news is Market Street will be roasting at their store again this weekend! If you missed it last weekend, be sure to get there this Saturday or Sunday between 10am and 5pm to pick up your own roasted Hatch chiles.

What about you? Have you tried Hatch chiles before?

5 Tips for Making Your Everyday Life Easier + GIVEAWAY

Thank you, Dr. Smith’s, for sponsoring today’s post! As usual, all opinions belong to the writer!

Do you ever lay in bed at night and think of all the things that you did not get done for the day that you would have liked to? Welcome to the wonderful world of parenthood. Nothing usually goes as planned and no day is the same. Somehow those stinkers always seem to throw a kink in our plans, don’t they?!  I have come up with 5 tips for making your everyday life easier to share with you today! These are working for me and my family in our home and I hope they can do the same for you, too!

making everyday life easier

5 Tips for Making Your Everyday Life Easier

1. Two Minute Rule

We just spent two solid days cleaning out my nine year old daughter’s room and let me tell you, it was horrific.  Now that we tackled this monstrosity, how do we keep it this way?  Every night, before she gets in bed, we set the timer for two minutes. She picks up and actually puts away the things strewn out over just that day. I couldn’t believe it after the first week, her room was still clean and now at 3 weeks, it still looks great! I am now working on making this a family habit since it has certainly made our family life a little easier. Two minutes is such a short time and it’s amazing what you can do in just that little amount of time.

making everyday life easier

2. Prepare the Night Before

Ever find yourself explaining why you are late to something and realize it all comes down to the same thing? You couldn’t get your family out of the door because someone couldn’t find a missing shoe, library book, etc. It gets exhausting!

For our family, we have the Night Before Game. Lay out clothes, find shoes, make lunches, and any other things that might keep you and the family from walking out of the door on time. I always tell myself to never go home on “E” in the gas tank because that will cause unneeded stress in the morning. I guess that applies to everyone’s gas tank not just the car!

 3. Family Calendar

Work schedules, play dates, school events, sporting events, and relax days need their spot on the calendar. I know things always pop up at the last minute but having the basic schedule of the week ready by Sunday night is a goal I try to accomplish. However your family keeps up with the daily tasks is a  preference, of course, but we find the good old fashion calendar on the kitchen wall works best for us. It’s super easy to glance at quickly, and even by accident, which is sometimes the best reminder.

4. Keep the Diaper Changing Station Stocked

Have you ever chased after a toddler with a stinky diaper or even had a lovely “poof” of baby powder right to the face? It’s not fun, and I’m positive it’s the messiest business there is! Having everything you need, like diapers, wipes, and diaper rash cream, within arm’s reach during this daunting task is a must!

Have you ever tried to smear the white stuff on, then try to fasten the diaper with the few remaining fingers, and then get the clothes back while also making sure you toddler isn’t taking a nose dive off of the changing table? It’s exhausting just thinking about! Dr. Smith’s thought of us in this exact predicament when they created the incredible Dr. Smith’s Diaper Rash Spray. Yes, a SPRAY! No more cream covered fingers to clean off! It’s gentle, fast acting and effective, but also a breeze to use! And of course, the very best part is no more red hiney! That makes every mom sleep better!

Making Everyday Life Easier

5. Delegate

Probably my biggest downfall as a parent is trying to control every situation or do everything myself….. I am learning that not everything in our lives has to be done the way I would do it. I know that I am not alone in this crowd and neither are you. My last tip for making everyday life easier is to share it with my family. Share the chores, share the duties, and share the stress.  Although there is an “I” in Family, there is not one in TEAM! Small simple tasks for everyone in the family will not only make my life easier but will also teach my kids a valuable lesson!

GIVEAWAY

Dr. Smith’s has a fabulous giveaway to offer you!! One winner will win a $200 Visa gift card + Dr. Smith’s prize pack and 3 more people will each win a Dr. Smith’s prize pack!

My Kid’s Trick Shot with Fruit Shoot

Thank you to Fruit Shoot for sponsoring today’s post, but my love for their juice and endorsing children’s creativity is all my own!

Summer may be quickly nearing the end, and back to school is on the brain, but we’re still relishing in our free time and looking for the next fun thing! Sometimes we have to be a little creative, but it makes it more fun that way!

Usually, it’s pretty easy to make my kids happy. We just go outside. They love to run and play in any way they can. 

fruit shoot

Sometimes we have to get a little creative and make something fun. Our family loves a little friendly competition, so we usually find it any way we can. ;)

fruit shoot kid's trick shot

Normally in Texas, the beginning of August would be considered the hottest part of the summer. This summer has been an exception. We haven’t seen many days with temps over 100, which we’re super thankful for, but it doesn’t mean we need to hydrate any less. My kids are big juice fans, and I’m ok with that because I’m a believer in “everything in moderation.”

I love to finding fun snacks and drinks for my little ones and these bottles of Fruit Shoot definitely keep it interesting for them! They LOVE them!

fruit shoot 

With a new no-spill cap, making it a perfect drink for all ages, and contains no fructose corn syrup, making it a much better option than other flavored drinks. I can save my sanity not having to worry about cleaning up messes AND not feel guilty about what my kids are consuming! WIN!

To make Fruit Shoot even more awesome, they are running a contest you will definitely want to enter! It was perfect for my little guys!!

“Have a BALL Stunt Hunt” is a contest that celebrates Fruit Shoot’s commitment to imaginative play while staying hydrated in a healthy manner. Ready to enter? Here’s what you need to do:

1. Shoot a short video clip, thirty seconds or less, of your child who is at least three years of age, performing an active stunt. Make sure the video includes a Fruit Shoot bottle and a ball. To give you a better idea of how easy this is and what they’re look for, I have a super short video of my almost 4 year old, Riverson, to share with you!

Take a look!

2. Visit the contest page to submit your entry. Once submitted you will receive an e-mail with a coupon for a free bottle of Fruit Shoot as a thank you just for entering!

3. Once your video is approved, share the link with friends and family encouraging them to vote.

4. Every week, now through September 1st, Fruit Shoot will choose a winning video, give it a full-on Hollywood special effects treatment and release it on their contest homepage for the world to see.

Fruit Shoot is even giving you a chance to send away for a FREE Waboba ball — the ball that bounces on water. All you have to do is buy 6 bottles of Fruit Shoot in stores. You kids will LOVE it! Mine are so excited for ours to comes in.

So don’t wait any longer! Get your kids outside and catch your kid’s trick shot in action. Make sure to stay hydrated with Fruit Shoot while you’re at it, too!

8 Facts Parents Need to Know About Underage Drinking

We have a teen who is less than 6 months from receiving her drivers license. We know what vehicle she will be driving and we’re excited for her. However, there are mixed emotions. While it’s one less child we have to drive around and cart here and there, we’re sad about that precious time we have with her in the car when it seems to be prime time for opening up. :) 

She’s also about to gain a bit more freedom than we’re used to. We just got great news last week, when we learned she had made the sophomore volleyball team. YAY YAY YAY! While we’re so excited for her and proud that she accomplished something she’s worked for, we’re mostly just happy that she has something school related she’s connected to and a group she belongs to. Too much free time is a recipe for disaster in the teen world. I know we can all agree with that.

Unfortunately, too much free time in the teen world leads to poor decisions. Among other things, one of those poor decisions includes underage drinking. Don’t think I’m foolish enough to think that just because she’s involved in athletics and busy with her volleyball girls that she still can’t make poor decisions. We know that and we’re trying to take as many necessary steps as possible to be successful in preventing underage drinking. 

We’re researching. We’re talking. We’re being proactive.

8 Facts Parents Need to Know About Underage Drinking

Underage Drinking

As we all know, knowledge is power and in this case, we need to know all we can. Take a look at these 8 facts provided from MADD’s Power of Parents workshop, based on two decades of research.

  • 73% of Texas teens claim the fact that most or all of their friends drink motivates them to drink.
  • More than half of Texas teens say that the fact that their peers are drinking to get drunk also motivates them to drink.
  • Yet, 62% of both Texas teens and parents believe it is unacceptable to drink under the age of 21.
  • Nearly three out of four teens are aware of parties where a parent or adult has provided alcohol to teens.
  • Teen alcohol use kills about 4,700 people each year, more than all other illegal drugs combined.
  • Teens are 80% less likely to drink if parents deliver a clear no alcohol before 21 message.
  • Yet, 65% of parents say it’s ok for teens to have alcohol at Thanksgiving.
  • Parents have the biggest influence on their teen not to drink, even more so than their friends.

There is hope, we just have to take action. Want to learn more?

Join us today in an online workshop chat with Mothers Against Drunk Driving on Twitter!

madd_PoP_Logo

Details: Parents remain the number one influence on their teens decision about drinking. A survey of Texas teens and parents conducted by MADD Texas and made possible by a grant from the Texas Department of Transportation showed that 62 percent of Texas teens say their parents are the motivating factor for them not to drink.

The back-to-school moment is a great time for parents to start or continue an on-going conversation with their children about the dangers of alcohol, as many teens will encounter more opportunities or peer pressure to drink during the school year. 

The Motherhood is joining MADD Texas for this online workshop that will encourage and empower parents with how to talk with their teens about the many dangers and consequences of underage drinking, as well as the deadly impact of drinking and driving at any age.

Prizes: The Motherhood will award five prizes to participants who answer trivia questions tweeted by @TheMotherhood25 correctly. Each prize includes a Power of Parents Handbook and a one-on-one session with a Certified Power of Parents Trainer.

When: Thursday, August 14, 1-2pm ET

Parents remain the number one influence in their teenager’s decision making when it comes to drinking. That’s GREAT news for us! We CAN make a difference!

MADD_INFOGRAPHIC_HiRes It’s never too late to talk to with your children about the dangers of alcohol. MADD’s Power of Parents program offers informational materials, resources and workshops to help parents talk with their children about alcohol.

I hope you’ll join me today on Twitter to learn more about how we can be the best parents when it comes to tackling this underage drinking bear. 

 

Be a Hunger Hero at Sam’s Club

I participated in this program on behalf of Champions for Kids and The Motherhood. As always, all opinions are my own.

Before I had my babies and stayed home to take care of them, I was responsible for 20+ kids every weekday, 9 months out of the year. Yep, you guessed it. I was a teacher. But not just any teacher. I was a bilingual teacher. All of my kids spoke Spanish and I LOVED that part of it! Being able to speak Spanish everyday brought me so much happiness.

But, it wasn’t always sunshine and roses at school. Most of my kids were low income. Most of my kids were on free or reduced lunches in the school cafeteria. I couldn’t prove it, but I worried about some of my kids being hungry when they went home at night or before they came to school. It was heartbreaking, and for that reason, I always encouraged them to eat everything on their plates during school lunch.

Since then, childhood hunger has touched me to the core. It’s unbelievable how large this problem is in our country, one of the richest countries in the world. Did you know that 16 million children in America live in poverty? And 1 in 5 children in our country don’t get enough to eat. Many of these kids don’t have a reliable access to the nutritious meals that help them thrive and succeed both academically and socially.

The problem seems so massive and it makes you wonder how one little person can help. But you can.

Be a Hunger Hero

 

Be a Hunger Hero at Sam’s Club

Throughout the month of August, Champions for Kids, Tyson Foods, and KRAFT Foods can help you “Be a Hunger Hero” at Sam’s Club by purchasing any of these products at Sam’s Club and help feed a child in need:

  • Tyson Fully Cooked Chicken Nuggets 5 lb. bag
  • KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner 7.25 oz.
  • 12 pack or CAPRI SUN Juice Drink Variety Pack – 40 pouches

Be a Hunger Hero

If you open my pantry and don’t see KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese in there, something’s wrong. Our teens LOVE it! Likewise, if you open my freezer and don’t see Tyson Chicken Nuggets or Capri Sun in my refrigerator, I’ve got some upset little boys on my hands. They LOVE it, as well!

The Hunger Hero campaign is the perfect way for our family to help! It’s all about action and turning families into superheroes, tapping into the incredible power of giving. Like any good superhero, Hunger Heroes are bold, confident and even playful as they save the day in style, just like these little guys. ;)

Be a Hunger Hero

 

We’re not stopping there, either. I’d love to have you join me on Twitter tomorrow to spread the word about hunger relief. I’ll be tweeting along with Champions for Kids, Tyson Foods, Kraft and Sam’s Club, with prizes to be given away! Here are more details: 

When: Thursday, August 21, 2014, at 1pm ET / 12pm CT / 10a PT

Where: We’ll be on Twitter — follow the #HungerHeroes hashtag to track the conversation. You can see the details and RSVP via this http://twtvite.com/hungerheroes

Prizes: Five prizes will be given to randomly selected participants who answer the trivia questions correctly. Each prize includes a $50 Sam’s Club gift card.

I’d love to see you there, tweeting with us. Every little bit helps and sometimes spreading the word is the best thing we can do. People can’t take action if they don’t know. Let’s do our part and spread the word!

See you there!

GODIVA’s New Trufflelata™ & Soft Serve Treats + GIVEAWAY

Tracking PixelThis is a sponsored post but as usual, my thoughts, opinions, and love for chocolate are all my own.

Last week, I had the amazing opportunity to attend a private blogger event inside of the Dallas GODIVA store in NorthPark Mall. I had planned to eat dinner right after we finished but mid way through our event, I knew there was no way I could make it happen. It was just ridiculous how full I was. I think I even went to sleep dreaming of delicious chocolate, I had so much. It was my own fault, really. I just couldn’t stop. And with good reason, too! It. Was. AMAZING. Godiva I’ve never been a chocolate snob and never really understood why people liked certain chocolates more than others. However, after all of the sampling we did, I completely understand it now. GODIVA’s rich and creamy texture, premium ingredients like authentic Belgian chocolate, and delicious flavors had me falling in love immediately. GODIVA The main goal of the evening was to try out GODIVA’s latest treats to launch in stores, the Trufflelata™ and Soft Serve, both of which can be seen on the above wall of the Dallas store. 

With 6 flavors like Chocolate Lava Cake, Salted Caramel, Strawberry Crème, Hazelnut Crunch, Milk Chocolate and Oreo® Cookie, GODIVA’s Trufflelata™, there’s a flavor for everyone.  You can even pick out your favorite truffle from the chocolate case and they’ll blend it right in to a Trufflelata™!GODIVA It’s a brand new, one-of-a-kind frozen treat that transforms traditional shakes into a delectable and satisfying beverage. I mean, there’s a truffle in every sip, for goodness sake! You just can’t go wrong. :)

Retailing for $6 each only sweetens the deal.

My personal favorite was the Oreo® Cookie flavored Trufflelata™. Godiva This sensational shake brings together white chocolate, Oreo® cookies, and GODIVA’s Cookie Dough Truffle – made of cookie dough ganache in a milk and white chocolate shell with dark chocolate chips. Topped with fresh whipped cream and crushed Oreo®. Sounds like perfection, doesn’t it?! It definitely is!

Made from premium and authentic Belgian chocolate, GODIVA’s rich and creamy Soft Serve elevates the traditional frozen treat experience to create memorable moments in every bite. It’s also available in three delicious flavors: Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate Vanilla Bean, and Swirl. You also have a choice of cones! Choose between a variety of premium Belgian waffle cones, each one dipped in either milk or dark chocolate, or in a traditional five ounce cup. Soft Serve retails for $6.

Both of these make such a fun treat that’s perfect for this Summer heat! And to make these treats even sweeter, you can also take advantage of Happy Hour at participating boutiques. Weekdays, 3PM-7PM, you can buy one Trufflelata™ or Soft Serve and get a second one at 50% off! 

I had such a fantastic time hearing from the GODIVA store manager and learning the GODIVA way. It’s great to see people have so much pride in the brand they work for! I’d be more than happy to stop in for a happy hour treat on a weekday afternoon!

GIVEAWAY

GODIVA would love to have you stop in, as well. They’re offering a $25 gift card for one of you to win! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what you’re favorite summer fling or event was. GODIVA You can also post a selfie with a GODIVA treat like this one on Twitter or Instagram using the #GODIVAsweeps hashtag to be entered to win a year’s worth of free GODIVA.  GODIVA The $25 GODIVA gift card giveaway will end August 15th at midnight. Winner will be notified via email. Terms and conditions apply. This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of GODIVA.

Please don’t post Etsy shops, giveaways, or links to other linky parties. Fortunately, there are lots of other link parties out there to link those up.

I will be sharing my favorite links at next week’s linky party. In the meantime, though, I will share your projects on my social media channels, giving credit to you, of course! I love to share you links on Pinterest, especially! Make sure you’re following me there

To make the party more fun, visit the links others have left, because it’s always fun to see what others are up to. Leave a comment and maybe even pin the ones you like, like I’ll be doing. This makes it a party and keeps people coming back!  Though it’s not required, I would love you to link back to my post or even post my party button, which you can find the code for on the sidebar. 

So let’s party… 

Here are a few of my favorites from the last Something Fabulous Wednesday party!
