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 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!

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

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
