Game Day Football Party Hosting + GIVEAWAY

This Game Day Football Party post is a sponsored post written on behalf of Family Dollar, Proctor & Gamble, and Pepsi. However, all opinions are my own. 

If you only know one thing about our family, it’s probably that we are big sports fans. We love to play them and we love to watch them. Of course, our favorite sporting events are the ones we can actually be there for, but since we know that’s not possible all of the time, we try to find the next best thing for any Dallas fan: a Cowboys football Party!

Texas Caviar Dip Recipe

I’ve lived in Texas my entire life but it wasn’t until I got married that I was introduced to Texas Caviar Dip, which is far to long to wait, in my opinion. ;)

My husband always raved about his sister’s cooking but mentioned one specific dish he LOVED for her to make. After he convinced me to try it, I knew right away why he loved it so much! The mix of flavors and the healthy combination of vegetables in what could also be known as a bean salad was just delicious! A few years ago, I finally got the courage to ask her for the recipe and she was happy to pass it on to me.

Caramel Top Hats

I’m so excited to share Caramel Top Hats with you! This fun after school treat post is a sponsored post but my love for this deliciousness is real! :)

There are a lot of mixed feelings about summer being over. We’re all excited that school is back in session because it gives me a little more time to get things done and the kids love getting back to seeing their friends everyday. But, a part of me misses the freedom of our days in summer, with nothing on our agenda and so much possibility. It gave us time to play around with fun new treats, and these Caramel Top Hats became a HUGE favorite for our family!

A lot of times, I try to keep things healthy for my kids when they get home from school and there are plenty of ways to do that, but there are also times I want to knock their socks off with an after school treat I KNOW they’ll love! We fell in love with these Caramel Top Hats because 1) they’re delicious and 2) they’re so quick and easy to make!

Quick and Easy Lunch from HERDEZ

This is a sponsored post by the makers of the HERDEZ® Brand, but my love for their Cocina Mexicana Frozen Bowls is all my own!

In this season of life right now, I feel like I live in the kitchen, I’m either preparing food, getting my kids to eat their food, or cleaning up after their meal. It feels like an ongoing cycle that never really stops until they are in bed for the night. Sometimes I find myself not eating lunch until the late afternoon because I’ve been so busy making sure everyone else is fed and happy. I definitely get the short end of the stick because I often forget about quick and easy lunch options I have available. 

My husband and I have said many times we feel like we could eat Mexican food for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, so you can imagine my excitement when I found these HERDEZ Cocina Mexicana Frozen Bowls while I was grocery shopping this week!

Plano Balloon Festival Training + Ticket GIVEAWAY

The Plano Balloon Festival is an event looked forward to all year long and I really believe it’s because there’s something about hot air balloons that just makes you smile. Seeing those big beauties in the sky always leaves me in awe of their large size and ability to provide someone so much joy and excitement. 

You might imagine how I felt when I woke up super early last weekend to spend my morning among these beautiful balloons at the crew training event for the Plano Balloon Festival.

MinuteCast by AccuWeather, Your Must Have Fashion Accessory

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of AccuWeather. All opinions are 100% my own.

If you’re one of those people who are always keeping up with current fashion trends, you’re probably well aware of Fashion Week going on in New York right now, and I also am a little jealous of you. ;) I love fashion so much, but sometimes my bank account can limit me, as well as my usual mom uniform. :) I’ve loved following all of the pictures on Instagram from the #nyfw  and #newyorkfashionweek hashtags. 

It’s even inspired me to take on a new fashion trend I’ve been eyeing. I took the plunge and bought a cute pair of ankle boots at Target this week and had a little fun styling them.

Ankle Boots and Jeans

Obviously we’re not quite ready for fall fashion in early September in Texas, but it was fun to pretend for a little bit. 

Ankle Boots and Jeans

I know I will get a lot of wear out of these ankle boots this fall and I just might need to pick up another color, too. :)

In spite of my attempts at cute outfits and fun accessories, I’ve learned that there’s one thing that can kill my cute look in a heartbeat. The weather. 

When I was growing up, my Dad would read the newspaper as I was getting ready for school each morning. He would give me the weather report for the day and even a little heads up for the rest of the week. It helped me figure out how to style my hair if there was rain coming and even to know if I needed to take an extra layer for the day to be ready for the cold front headed in later that afternoon. Crazy cold fronts are so popular down here in the late fall and winter months. 

It’s hard to believe how far we’ve come since those days of daily paper newspapers and seven day forecasts. Now, I have the weather forecast and current radars at my fingertips so I can always be prepared. The folks at AccuWeather have now given you even more reason to have their weather forecast as your favorite fashion accessory.

5 Tips For Getting Kids Involved in the Kitchen

I’m sure it comes to no surprise to you that I’m in the kitchen quite a bit. Some days it feels like all day long. With seven mouths to feed in our family, preparing food and cleaning up can sometimes feel like a full time job. For that very reason, I’m an eager beaver when it comes to teaching my kids how to get involved in the kitchen. We practiced quite a bit this summer while they were all out of school and I wanted to share my 5 tips for getting kids involved in the kitchen with you!
