This post contains affiliate links.Have you ever just gotten a hold of something, started enjoying the heck out of it and realized THIS IS INCREDIBLE!?  This post is about a handful of awesome things that we're loving lately.

Oh, we cannot get enough of this movie here! Ask my six year old, and she will tell you that it's the best thing going. The villains from our favorite stories have all been rounded up and banished to their own island; but this isn't their story. It's the story of their children. The son of Belle and the Beast is about to become king and his first royal proclamation is to give the children of the evil villains…

Husband Review: Awesome Wooden Beard Comb

This post contains affiliate links. Last week, Mr. Incredible got a magical 
Amazon Prime box. We live for these boxes, they always hold such treasure. And with free shipping to boot! 

I don't know if you know it, but my husband is one of the trendy beardlovin' men of today. And while he's never been the completely clean-shaven type, the beard has been an adjustment for me. I like to think I'm a cool wife. So imagine my face when I turned the corner a few weeks ago, and saw him brushing his beard with my hairbrush. Oh, I was all kinds of amused.
Something had to be done.
Behold, the Beard Comb!

The following is Mr. Incredible's Review:
"This little box you see above came to us well packaged to keep its contents safe. The box itself is a good and study and may last for quite a while. But more than that, they actually put thought and creativity into the packaging. 

Have Your Cake & Coffee, Too!

If you didn't know it, Friday was National Coffee Cake day!
You guys, they must've seen me a mile away. I jumped on this holiday like crazy woman! I got what I needed from the grocery store to make Homemade Raspberry Danish. I've had a love affair with Entenmann's danishes for as long as I can remember. And when Google dropped a copycat recipe in my lap, I could practically taste it. WE HAD TO MAKE IT. 

My original plan was to make it early Friday morning, so Pirate and Mr. Incredible could have some for breakfast before work and school. But, Tootsie Roll woke up sick, and this mama doesn't sleep well with a sick baby. Our fresh pastry for breakfast turned into a "Quick! Eat this! We gotta go!" as I handed her a chocolate muffin and cup of coffee.

For us, National Coffee Cake Day simply transformed into Coffee Cake Weekend! 
Okay, I know it's technically not a coffee cake - but always remember: nothing about this blog is, or ever will be, about being per…

Bad Weather & Happy Kids

This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my (Dollar Store & Amazon) links. We have had quite the weather lately.
It will be sunny and glorious one day, and then BAM! the heavens open with rain and thunder. Weather woes light up the Facebook news feed and the power flickers.

Yesterday was one of those beautiful days. Today, not so much. Yesterday, we played in the water and the mud. Today would be a good day for Benjamin Franklin to learn something shocking.

So what do we do when the weather gets nasty, and we're stuck inside? What do we do when we're not certain the power (read: Netflix and lights) will stay on?
I'm glad you asked!

I've rounded up a list of 5 (non-emergency) things we like to keep on-hand during bad weather and power outages! These are things that have saved our sanity and kept the fun going. These may be actual items or just a fun idea. Either way, Mom & Dad have gone from zero to he…

Springtime, Coffee & Rainbows

Spring is finally here. The days are longer and warmer.  We are loving the outside world. 
The trees. The sunshine. The birds. The bugs. Even the bees and wasps buzz around with the promise of summer. 
Our front porch is starting to bloom where over the winter it was just dormant and lifeless. I could go on and on and on about how we love these days. This lemon-thyme plant has come back for several years now. I wish you could smell it through the screen! We've been spending a lot of time on the front porch and in the yard this week. It's like we cannot get enough of it. But please, remind me of this feeling in the middle of July when we're blasting the a/c because we're melting! Tootsie Roll loves getting to splish and splash this year. She is so excited to just discover every single thing. And Pirate? She discovered something cool. She was playing with the water hose, running one of her obstacle courses and cooling off when we looked up and saw a rainbow!
There are few thin…

Happy National PB&J Day!

It's peanut butter jelly time!

In case you didn't know, today is National Peanut Butter and Jelly Day! I don't know about you, but the good ol' PB & J was certainly a staple of my childhood. 

But how did I know of this spectacular holiday? I discovered National Holiday Calander! Oh, it's fun. Yay, for something for almost every day of the year!
In preparation for this yummy holiday, I learned a few things. The typical American kid will have consumed about 1,500 of these sandwich masterpieces by the time they graduate high school. Also, a recipe for the Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich first appeared in Good Housekeeping magazine in 1896. Wow! (These fun little factoids were found in this Wikipedia article!)
Today, Pirate and I want to share our own take on the peanut butter and jelly with you.
Behold, the Peanut Butter & Jelly Quesadilla!


It's everything you've dreamed of in a pb&j, but it's snug in a warm, crunchy quesadilla.
