Slow Cooker Hungarian Meatballs

Have slow cooker; will travel! That's my motto when it comes to taking appetizers to a get together like the Super Bowl Parties coming up. For a busy Mom, who usually has a couple kids to get ready besides herself, a slow cooker is the perfect helper in the kitchen.... it has my back! :) Also I love this recipe since it has ONLY 3 INGREDIENTS. ... and is a super easy, quick appetizer to throw together and practically forget about until we are ready to leave!!!

Blueberry-Orange Bread Recipe ~ My Sweetheart's Favorite ~ #ValentinesDay

With Valentine's Day coming up fast, I think back to the year I met my husband. We actually met three days after Valentine's Day, which I spent alone. Remember thinking that there wasn't anyone I was compatible with in my small town, and wondering if I would ever meet someone who was right for me. Unlike other times I have questioned life's circumstances, I received my answer FAST!

A friend of mine that I had worked with was transferred to a location in a different city to work late nights, and she showed up at my house one morning {at 6:30 in morning I might add!!!} right after getting off work. She came in my bedroom and woke me up, {my roommate had let her in}. She asked if I would like to meet a guy who had just moved to Indiana from Missouri that she had met at work who she "just knew" would be "perfect" for me. I said, "Sure I would love to meet him if he is as perfect for me as you say."

Rockin' Out With Kidz Bop 25 ~ Review and Giveaway

My tween daughter loves listening to music. She almost always has the radio on, a CD playing or is streaming music. I have always enjoyed listening to my favorite songs too, and love that music plays a big part in her day. Still some of the songs on the radio have the "bleeps", and many just aren't exactly appropriate for her age, in my opinion.

When I recently received the new release, Kidz Bop 25 for review. Both my daughter and I were thrilled!!! She has been rockin' out to her favorites, and I know she is listening to kid's music that is safe for her ears. This music is Sung By Kids For Kids!!! Can't think of a better way for my tween to enjoy her tunes everyday.

New Year's Resolution 2014 ~ Organizing My Home Week 1 Update

Last Sunday I posted My New Year's Resolution 2014 Plan ~ Organizing My Home. Thought I would check in with an update. My Goal for last week was item #1 from my list. 

  1. Clean out and move all our school storage closet to the entry way closet after organizing and throwing out the other stuff I have stored in the entry way. 
So happy to report that on Sunday I did it! This pregnant lady is a bit wiped out because instead of spreading it out over the week, I did it all in one day, and tried my hand at freezer cooking afterwards. I don't recommend cramming so much into one day, but my husband was home to help keep an eye on the kiddos.... so I just went for it. Do want to thank my daughter for being such a big help carrying the books from the school closet with me too. =)

Check out these before and after pictures of our 2 closets.... please don't judge, I know they were a crazy mess which is why I made them my #1 Goal. lol

Save $$ By Renting College Textbooks

*sponsored post. this post may contain affiliate links. see disclosure. 

I remember as a college student dreading that total at the campus book store at the beginning of each semester. It just killed me to spend that much on textbooks that I would use for a few months, and knew that I wouldn't make nearly half that back when the class ended. As students head back to the colleges this spring semester, wanted to make sure all of you know about an easy way to save money on textbooks. Instead of going to the bookstore on campus, and paying way too much for a text book you will only need a few months, why not rent college textbooks?

Campus Book Rentals has a really cool program where you simply go online search your specific textbook, choose how long you need to rent it for saving 40-90%, and then grab Free Shipping! Some textbooks are even available for next day shipping!!! When the class is over you just mail them back in the included postage paid shipping envelope! It doesn't get much easier than that.

Free Sample of Pediacare

*this post may contain affiliate links. see disclosure.
This offer has been paused.... I will let you know when or if it becomes available again. :(

 It's that time of year when our kids may just need a little something to help them feel better. Luckily my kids have stayed fairly healthy so far. Still having a fever reducer on hand is a necessity, and here's a great freebie you can sign up for!

I just grabbed a free sample of Pediacare! You can too if you have a kiddo between the ages of 4 and 8, and shop at Walgreens. (Make sure you answer the 2 simple questions to see if you qualify with the above choices, to receive your free sample)

New Year's Resolution Plan 2014

I am usually not big on making any New Year's Resolutions, but this year I have a few things I am hoping to accomplish before our new baby arrives in April. {Thinking that nesting thing that usually happens when a new baby is coming has hit me early!} Decided a resolution was called for. My official New Year's Resolution is Organizing My Home.

Since organizing a home isn't very specific, and my ADD will kick in leaving me with a ton of stuff started but not finished. I am going to set myself a few very specific projects. That should keep me on track and focused. I usually have big plans and honestly the best of intentions, but end up losing interest very fast. Struggling with follow through has always been a huge issue for me.
