Dress as A Veggie with VeggieTales and Family Christian!

This post has been compensated. All opinions are my own.
Halloween. It is one of my girls favorite 'holidays'. They absolutely LOVE dressing up, every day, in magical outfits and being transformed into beautiful princesses, rockin pop-stars, superheros, or whatever is their fancy for that day. Halloween makes it even more magical because they get to go out in their cuteness and get loads and loads of candy. As much as they love dressing up, I think it's the candy they love so much.
MG has ALWAYS been some sort of princess. Until last year. She HAD to be a Pink SuperGirl.
Nothing else would do. I was so shocked she did not pick a princess costume. This year, she is back to a princess and will be Ariel, The Little Mermaid. She will be the mermaid version. A few years ago, her sister was the princess version.
Oh my goodness! Look at my baby! Gosh she has grown SO MUCH the past two years. Mads has always varied her costumes each year. Some years she is a princess, once she was a pink butterfly fairy princess, last year she just HAD to be Mother Nature.
This year she will be Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. I don't remember her ever watching the movie. I'm not really sure why she decided to go with Dorothy. But, no other costume would do. We went to three different stores hunting it down. THREE STORES! I told her before we went into the 3rd that if we didn't find it, she was just going to have to pick something else. There was one left, it just happened to be in her size. That girl got LUCKY! 
Are you looking for a last minute costume idea this year? Because of my girls' love of everything princess, and VeggieTales, I decided to piece together the CUTEST SweetPea Beauty look. This is such an EASY costume! All it takes is a pretty pink 'princess' dress, pretty pink earrings, a green undershirt and a pretty blue ribbon for their hair. I can't wait to show the girls this costume! They are going to FLIP!

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!
