Stuff We're Lovin' Right Now: Week 1

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. I've asked Pirate for some help making this list. Without further ado, here are the things that our family is loving lately!

Remember, if the words are underlined and light up in a different color, it's an affiliate link - you can use it to jump on over to Amazon and check the product out!


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 a chance at a normal life.
Songs. Magic spells. Friendship. Mischief. It's a lot of fun. Pirate and I watch it almost every Friday night when we have our Girls Night.

2. Springtime 
This weather cannot be purchased, I know! But we would be liars if we didn't tell you that this has been something that we are LOVING it! Loving it with big hearts and dramatic emojis. Fresh air, sunshine and mud are all so good for us. We could just soak up that vitamin D all day long. Even the rain has been fun. As April showers bring May flowers, my girls and I have a love for playing in the rain and splashing in the water. 

3. Our Frozen bottle -aka- Zak! Designs Water Bottle (25 oz)
I found this bottle on sale at a local grocery store, and I cannot say enough good things about it! I originally bought this for Pirate. It has Anna and Elsa, need I say more?! But I will say more. I love it. We haven't had any leaks out of it, which is a big deal! 
I struggle with making myself drink enough water, but this makes it seem less daunting. It sounds crazy that a bottle would make a difference, and maybe it's the design, but it makes staying hydrated less of a chore. Even Tootsie Roll is a fan. She did make a bit of a mess, but not bad for a one year old! You can find several other designs for this 25 oz. bottle on Amazon.

4. Intex Snapset Pool
Our girls got this little pool as an Easter present! Super fun! It was easy to set up and easy to drain. I'll let the pictures tell the rest.
Can't wait until summer! We're going to be using this like crazy!

5. Fishing! 
Pirate and Mr. Incredible have taken to the lake. Fishing is their new favorite daddy-daughter pastime. And much to my dismay, they've actually brought a few home! There's nothing quite like the lingering smell of fish to make your house feel cozy! (Okay, it wasn't that bad. I just don't do fish - but that's a another story for another time!)

So that's what we're loving right now! What about you? Drop us a comment below, and tell us what you think.

As always, don't forget to check us out on Facebook, and come back here for more!

We Tried Decaf: Five Cups Coffee!

This post contains affiliate links. We are not decaf drinkers here.
In fact, the last time I bought decaf coffee was years ago. And it wasn't for me. We had company over and we were trying to be considerate. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure decaf is super. But, can someone explain the goodness to me? I mean, sure. Coffee is coffee. And with enough cream and sugar, I suppose I could drink anything. (I don't really mean that!) But really.

Then, along came Five Cups Coffee.  It came to me in a magical Amazon Prime box. In case you don't know, "I offer free shipping" is a great pick-up line.

My thoughts were something like this: Um, it's decaf. But it's apparently special. I mean, it says so on the package, "The World Finest Coffee". (That's a direct quote.)

A roasting date of September-something was written on the back of the package, as well as some good coffee making directions. I didn't get a picture of that - oops.

Inside, whole bean…

Family Fridays: Roasting Marshmallows at the Kitchen Table

It's been a while since we had a Family Fridays post!
I can't even imagine how that happened, but we're back! And I can't wait to tell you what Pirate and I just did! 
But first! If you follow us on Facebook, (and you totally should!), you may have seen me post this. Well, here is the much awaited answer.
If you've been following my blog for any amount of time, you may know how important quality time is to us, and especially to our six year old, Pirate. 

Pirate's days are long. They start before "bright and early", since it's still dark at 5am. By the time she gets off of the school bus, we get about three good hours with her a day, four if we're lucky. After the 7 o'clock hour rolls around, all bets are off. Exhaustion takes over. Monsters come out. 

All that to say, family time has to be found and seized!

One year old Tootsie Roll was already down for a nap when Pirate got off of the bus. It was too cold to play outside,  I took one of her favor…
