Back to School with Cookie's Kids

#momsguide,#Cbias

So, remember last week when I teased you guys with this post? We ended up shopping online at Cookie's Kids. I used the AWESOME #MomsGuide to help me pick out what we wanted.

After I got an idea of what we would be looking for, I let Mads go to town!

I helped her but, for the most part she picked out everything we purchased.  We sat down and went to the Cookie's Kids website and had a blast shopping!  We were a little overwhelmed with the site, their selection is AMAZING! But, once I got the hang of it and showed Mads what to click on, we were well on our way to a new wardrobe for Back to School.

I had $50 to spend and thought it would not get us far.  Boy was I WRONG!  The prices at Cookie's Kids are AMAZING!  I somehow ended up with a $30 credit on my account also, I still don't know where that came from but...I was excited it was there!  So now that I had $80 to spend, I was even MORE excited!

Would you like to see what all we got?

We purchased this CUTE Black Taffeta Skirt, this is going to be great for so many occasions! The shirt we already had and the shoes are also from Cookie's. One thing I LOVE about the skirt is it is adjustable! There is a little piece of elastic in the back with a button, like adjustable jeans.

This cute little set is no longer available.  It is an orange top, that Mads thinks Hanna Montana would wear, and it came with white leggings.

Mads LOVES this top! She would have gotten 10 of them, if I would have let her!  HA! You can still find it at Cookie's but in limited sizes.

I went back and forth about getting a jacket, but she LOVED it. You know, when it is 115 out you really aren't thinking jacket weather!  lol I am glad I got it though. The jacket is fully lined and the outside is some sort of fleece.  It is SO soft!

 Of course NO shopping trip is complete without a dress! She just HAD to have it. We used the leggings from the orange outfit above because it is just a bit short for this mama. It comes with a faux cami sewn in and the belt is also sewn on. I love that because I will not have to hunt for all of the pieces when she wants to wear it. Again, the shoes are also from Cookie's. I really like these shoes, they are very versatile. They are on the big side but, she will grow into them.

We also purchased a dress for little sister {in blue} and a pair of 7 seven jeans for Mads. The jeans are a bit big...and long...but she will grow into them. We usually get adjustable jeans because she is so tall and skinny that I have a hard time finding anything that fits. I can't wait for her to fit in the jeans, they are REALLY cute, they have rhinestones on all of the pockets. So girly and blingy!

I still need to pick up just a few supplies but, for the most part, we are all set to head Back to School! Mads is SO excited to show off all of her new clothes!

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.

Lightened-up Copycat KFC Coleslaw Recipe

Mmmmmm....I LOVE KFCs Coleslaw!  I mean LOVE it! It is the perfect creaminess, sweetness, crispness!  Growing up I LOVED when we had KFC, my meal consisted of potatoes and gravy, a chicken leg, biscuit with honey and a boat load of slaw.  To this day, it is my go to comfort meal.
But, after looking up the nutrition info, I kind of fell out of love a little bit. Goodness is it loaded!  I decided right then I was going to try to lighten it up a bit.  The results? Totally worth it and awesome!
