Showing off our Easter Baskets and #EasterSmiles #Cbias

Last week #Cbias put out the call that they were looking for bloggers to make Easter Baskets and incorporate Colgate Kids items.  I was SO excited!!

We always put a new toothbrush in our stockings at Christmas but never put one in our Easter baskets.  It makes perfect sense though!  With all of that candy it is a great idea! to Walmart I went....ALONE!  WooHoo!  That happens like...NEVER!

I was on the hunt for a special Colgate #EasterSmiles display....I never found it.  Stink!

I did find some pretty flowers though, LOTS of candy, not very many baskets to pick from and tons of eggs.  I decided to get a Dora AND SpongeBob toothbrush and tube of toothpaste, a few packages of candy and a few things I needed for other projects.  To see my entire shopping experience check out my Google+ story.

Once I got home I put everything into a big pile and added some things I already had.  I was very happy with the end result and although I did include some candy, the majority of the girls baskets were non candy things.

Here is MGs basket....

She LOVED her Dora toothbrush and toothpaste and could not wait to try them.  She also LOVED the fingernail polish, lipstick and clippies.  Her little chocolate bunny was a pretty big hit as well.

Here is Mads basket....

She was pretty excited to see the SpongeBob toothbrush!  Her other favorite items were the pinwheel and bath stuff, she said "The Easter Bunny must think I am like 16 or something!" HA!

After our fun Easter morning at home we headed to church.  I am so glad I decided to include the new toothbrushes and toothpaste in their baskets!  I think they each came home with about 30 pounds of candy from the egg hunt at church!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend!

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
