Countdown to Disney Celebration

 It is NO secret we LOVE Disney around here. I mean LOVE!  We took the girls to Walt Disney World for the first time 2 years ago. We are taking them back again this fall, along with my MIL. I CAN NOT WAIT! To get the girls even MORE excited about our upcoming trip, I decided to have a Countdown to Disney Celebration this weekend!
We all headed out to Walmart to pick up everything we need, even the cake. I LOVE that they are a one stop party shop! We just celebrated MGs birthday in April and WISH they would have had half the selection they do right now. I was blown away!
Even though we weren't having a birthday party, I thought it would still be fun to play a game. The girls LOVED this game, they didn't do too bad either.
I think the 'photo booth' was my FAVORITE part of our celebration! The girls loved playing with the props and taking pics with Minnie and Daisy.
I taped paper straws to the photo props and also added just a bit of glitter to make them pop even more. The straws made the props much easier to use and made them look just like real photo booth props.
We officially have 95 days to go before we are off to WDW! We love counting down the days until our trip and this party helped get us even more excited! Be sure to check back for more of our countdown celebrations, we usually have one every month until about 2 months out, then we REALLY start celebrating!

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!
