Celebrating National Waffle Day with TCBY


Oh yes, if you didn't know by now you are about to.  There IS a holiday for EVERY THING!  This past Sunday was National Waffle Day!  To celebrate my little family had a little Waffle Day celebration with TCBY frozen yogurt.  Yes!  THAT TCBY!

Swoon!

I don't remember when I had my very first experience with TCBY but one of my most memorable was when we were visiting my aunt in Hawaii when I was about 13.  I remember I ordered the parfait, it was new then, and it was good!

Now a days we have those Fro-Yo places popping up all over the place that lets you go in and combine all kinds of flavors and top your creation with all kinds of toppings yourself.  I won't lie, my girls and I frequent them a lot.


I was SO excited when I heard TCBY was now being sold at Walmart!  The Fro-Yo places are awesome but, they get super expensive!  At my local Walmart I can get a pint of TCBY for under $3 and come home and use the toppings we already have.  That pint is enough to serve my girls and I, plus give dad a bite as well.  It costs nearly $20 when all four of us go to a Fro-Yo place.  Eek!


Back to the party!

I decided to get some Waffle Cone Bowls, can't celebrate Waffle Day without some sort of Waffle!  I even made little waffles from cake batter once we got home to add even more fun!


Last week daddy was working evenings so the girls and I snuck to Walmart and picked up cookies and cream and english toffee crunch to try.  We HAD to get more of both flavors again this time plus, strawberry swirl and mint chocolate chip.


I got our table set up to make our little topping bar.  We had M & M's, itty bitty marshmallows, sprinkles (of course), chocolate syrup,  caramel syrup, toffee pieces, and some waffle pieces.

We had a blast and loved all the flavors!  My favorite was the English Toffee Crunch.

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.

For Such a Time as This

You know when you find a group of friends and you just sit back in amazement when you think of just how awesome they are? I am SO lucky to have a group like that in my life. I am even luckier to have this group in my girls' lives.  It is so very important to me for my girls to see the relationships I have with these women. The way we interact and love each other. It is important they see that even though each one of these women are very, very different, we still come together in love and laughter. It is also important to me that my girls see the relationships that these wonderful women have with their families. I am lucky enough to be close friends with two AMAZING families. We do things together, as families, we also do things together just the moms and kids. I love that my girls see these strong families and know that these families are there for them should they ever need them. In the times that we l…
