FREE Concerts!!



A few weeks ago I go I heard about a concert/conference that was coming to my area and decided I wanted to go.  The event was for moms and daughters, PERFECT!  However!  It was geared toward girls from about 8-12.  Not so perfect.  I still wanted to go but didn't want to be that weird mom there without her daughter.  What to do, what to do.  Plus, I really didn't want to have to pay to go.  Yeah, go ahead, you can call me cheap.  Won't be the first time I have heard that one.

About the time I heard the commercial for the event I also heard a commercial telling me that I could sign up with my FAV local radio station and volunteer at some of their events.  FUN!  The best part?  By volunteering I would be able to go to their events and get in for FREE!  HELLO!

I am sure by now you know where I am going with this.

A few days before the event a mass email went out to all that have signed up to volunteer asking for more people to sign up for THE EVENT I WANTED TO GO TO!!!!!!

I quickly shot an email back and within a few minutes was approved.!  WAHOOO!!  So not only do I get to go to the event, I got to go for free!

I will tell you, I have never worked harder in my life!  Oh my goodness!  I helped with merchandise and not only did that mean set it ALL up and sell it....it also meant take it ALL down and count it ALL TWICE!  I was there from 4:30pm to just after midnight!  This old lady just can't hang that long anymore!  I was plum tuckered out!

But it was worth it!

I was able to still see the show and now know that my daughter actually would have LOVED it!  She may not have understood it all but for the most part, she would have.  PLUS, not only did I get to go for free, I was able to get free product for working so hard!  Most of the merchandise was not very age appropriate for my girls but the cute new Veggie Tales DVD was right up their alley! 

So, my point!  If there is a concert coming up that you want to go to but just can not swallow dishing out the $$ for it....sign up with the radio station that is hosting the event and become a volunteer!

May I also say, if you are a mom and have a daughter from 5-13, or 14 or so, GO to Secret Keeper Girl if they ever come near you!  It is AWESOME and the girls will LOVE it!

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f

Getting ready for summer with #MyHartstrings #cbias

Is it warming up where you are?  It has been warming up here for a few weeks now.  With spring break over and the temps slowly getting warmer and warmer, it can only mean one thing.... SUMMER is just around the corner! We like to spend our summers at the lake or at the pool.  Last year we practically lived in our bathing suits!  Since we spent SO much time in our suits last year, they were looking a little warn by the end of summer.  Plus both girls have grown so much this year, they needed new suits. I have been peeking at some suits on Hartstrings.com and decided to go ahead and get new suits!  We may be going to Houston soon so the girls will need something for that trip.  It was REALLY hard to decide on what suit to get the girls, they have such cute options.  Mads is old enough to pick for herself (somewhat) and MG really doesn't care as long as it includes pink. I pulled up Hartstrings.com and let the girls have at it.  I did guide MG into the green and p
