A big Thank You to Fruitshoot for sponsoring today’s post. I remember growing up lunchtime was very serious business ~ I went to a private school and there was NO WAY we could play with our food…not even poke at it but now that I’m a mom and I homeschool my kids lunch is fun. Sometimes lunch is just a sandwich cut in triangles or leftovers from dinner the night before but sometimes lunch is something creative.  Since it’s springtime I {Read More}

Transformers Construct-Bots ~ Imaginative/Interactive Play #ConstructBots

TRANSFORMERS BLITZWING #CONSTRUCTBOTS

My youngest son loves to build and create.  That being said anything he can get his hands on to put together {construct}, recreate {convert}, and make his own {customize} , is a joy to him and a win-win for me.   I love to keep his imagination flowing and Transformers Construct-Bots from Hasbro do just that.   Each TRANSFORMERS CONSTRUCT-BOTS figure includes a robot frame and lots of armor, weapons and accessory parts so kids can have a blast time and time {Read More}

I am a Snapple lover from way back.  Do you remember Wendy, the Snapple Lady {if you don’t because you’re too young….I still love you…I’ll just relive those memories by my lonesome}?  Those first commercials began my introduction to the wonderful world of Snapple.  Actually, those commercials and my Dad.  Daddy was a cool guy who was cutting edge.  The first sip I ever had of a Snapple was from my Dad and now I’ve introduced my boys to Snapple {Read More}

My Bowling Story and Family Memories When I was in the 8th {Read More}

Easter Basket Rainbow 2 @cupcakesandcrinoline.com

This is a post filled with color.…and lots of fresh, squishy Peeps! This would be so cute for an Easter table display or on a buffet ~ I used some margarita glasses, filled them with little puffs of cotton candy and plopped some Peeps right into the center. I like symmetry and when things in my life are color coded ~ I have no idea why….everything just seems to make more sense.  I don’t have any daughters but I love {Read More}

Easter Candy Nests @cupcakesandcrinoline.com

These Easter Candy Nests are easy to make, messy, fun and tasty.  This is an old school recipe that I remember from when I was little but I’ve never made it with my boys until this year.  They had a blast, got gooey and sticky, and I had fun watching them make these pretty little Easter Candy Nests. These would be pretty on an Easter buffet atop upside down glasses ~ I filled some of the glass bottoms with speckled {Read More}
