Happy Memorial Day! 

I hope everyone had a safe and wonderful weekend. 
Ours was a quiet one. We had some fun things planned after we found ourselves at the Dollar Tree a couple of weeks ago. Going down this aisle of patriotic decor, it suddenly felt like summer! I had items jumping in my buggy left and right. 

Of course, that was before the rain hit. And we had to re-write our weekend. It happens. Not to worry, we may revisit this fun stuff for Independence Day!

And while we didn't have a cookout, and our decorations are still on the kitchen table; we didn't let that rain dampen our spirits! 

Pirate had a little fun dressing up as a patriotic little fairy. We got these wings and headband for $1 each at Dollar Tree. 

In the few minutes we had without rain today, we played tag and fell in the wet grass. And if you've ever played tag with a child who has been cooped up all day, you know there is no winning. Ain't nobody got energy like that!

We spent most of our day playing inside and 
watching Netflix. Our sweet Memorial Day came to a close with some Hot Dog Pie for dinner! It's a favorite here, there are never leftovers. 

And that was our Memorial Day! Comment below, we'd love to hear from you! Tell us how your weekend was!

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.

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!

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…

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…
