Christmas with Cookie's Kids

#CookiesKids, #Cbias
Christmas is just around the corner!
One of my favorite Christmas traditions is shopping for a Christmas dress. I started my search for the perfect dress for MG a few weeks ago on CookiesKids.com.

 Their selection of dresses is AMAZING! They have tons of different styles, fits and colors. I had a hard time deciding on THE dress, it was a toss up between the one I choose and another that I decided just was not for us.  Oh, the other one was cute, it just had stuff around the neck and MG can be pretty picky about stuff like that.

I ended up getting this dress by Dorissa and am so glad I did!  The color is just beautiful! The ruffles near the neck and the bows on the sash are made of velvet, the rest of the dress is like a taffeta.

#CookiesKids has an AWESOME new feature that allows you to put your child's height and weight in and they will pull up what size would work best for your child.  Unfortunately, MG is kind of hard to fit so they could not come up with a size for her.  Cookie's Kids does have regular size charts, which is what I ended up using.

One of the reasons I turn to CookiesKids.com when I am shopping for timeless pieces is because I believe in their story. They are a family owned company that was founded by brothers. In 1972 a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens and fixed it up, bought inventory and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. 

The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children's clothing for next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it's way. A third bother joined Marvin and Cookie and by the late 1990's, they had 6 superstores throughout New York. CookiesKids.com was rolled out in 2007.

Today Cookie's has 7 stores in the New York City area, as well as online!

Isn't that cool? I LOVE stories like this and it makes me want to shop with them every chance I get! I hope you will consider them next time you are looking for kids clothes. Oh! I also have something just for YOU! You guys know I LOVE coupons, so how about a coupon code?

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!
