Give me a BREAK!!!!!


(my MG ready for a break)

I have to tell you.  Right now.  Right now at this very moment (ok and a few moments for the past week), I decided I am done!  For now.  With the Disney posts.  Now, I may very well change my mind in the next 30 seconds.  And you know what, that is totally ok.

But.

For now.

I am done.

On to other things.

Yesterday was Mother's Day, it was my 6th Mother's Day and my mom's 30th.  Because of some unforeseen plumbing issues (in my house, imagine that!) we were able to spend the weekend together.  Saturday, all four of us girls spent the day shopping.  It was a good day.  

Yesterday the four of us picked out some flowers/plants for my moms yard.  I even got some strawberries, pumpkins and tomatoes to plant.  It was a good weekend.

This past week at school Mads filled out one of those fill in the blank forms about your mom.  Some of my favs that she put....

I love my mom because she "bakes me cookies"
She is best at "making dinner"
She does not do well at "grilling" (ROFL I love this one)
She makes me "happy"
She's the best because "she makes the best cookies" (awww)
I'll always remember when my mom "was a coupon princess"

I LOVED it!  lol  Plus, she wrote every last letter all on her own.  She is such a sweet little girl with such a big heart.  Every time we see her teacher (who is from the deep south) tells us how much of a Southern Lady Mads is.  Awww!  She TOTALLY is!

I love my girls!

I hope you all had a very fabulous Mother's Day.

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
