Stuff We're Loving Right Now: Week 2

This post contains affiliate links.


We're back again for another round of Stuff We're Loving Lately! You know the feeling, you've gotten a hold of something awesome, and you love love love it! That's what this little blog series is about; things we've been loving right now. Without further ado, here is our family's list!
1. Friday Ice Cream 
I started picking Pirate up after school on Fridays. She gets in the car and I have her favorite song playing on the radio, "Rotten to the Core" from the Descendants soundtrack. She gets buckled and we head to the ice cream shop. This is our newest tradition. And it's a special time.
It's a great and yummy way to spend some time with Pirate, make some memories and fill her little heart up with happy feelings. Tootsie Roll is a big fan, as well! Yay, ice cream!🍦


Who doesn't love a bit of nostalgia?! Space Quest! Duck Tales! Concentration! Avoid the Noid! These were the games of my childhood. 
I grew up using MD-DOS. If you don't know what that is, just consider me old. All you need to know is that DOS was a computer operating system before everyone used a mouse, a touch pad or a touchscreen. Before the world met Google. If you think these games have gone somewhere to die, you might be right. But recently, we've come across these cool websites that have resurrected the games of the past. 
Thursday, Pirate and I had a blast spending a couple of hours playing these old school games. You can find some here and here. Oh, and it's totally free to play right in your browser!


I can't help myself, but I'm a sucker for this abandoned duo. That's right, this band seems to be no longer. Ryan McCartan & Dove Cameron, and subsequently The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, have broken up. Insert all sad, sad emjois here. 
BUT! Their songs are still on YouTube and still able to be purchased online. Lucky me, because I can't seem to get enough. 
You an click here to find it on Amazon, it comes as a digital download - the whole album or whatever single song you fancy. I'm listening to them now as I type! 


4. Sol-u-Guard

This bottle of magic is my BFF when it comes to household cleaners. 

Is that weird? 
That's weird. Let me explain. 

I used to swear by the power of bleach. You couldn't tell me that anything could possibly be better. 
That is, until a few years ago, when it started making me sick. I'd clean the house and spend the next week feeling like I had a nasty cold. I could feel it in my chest, my throat hurt, my head hurt. Delightful, right? 

That's when I remembered a company that my parents we a part of when I was a child: Melaleuca. Spoiler alert: they're awesome. More about them later.

These are products that work really, really well! But are made so safely that they don't even need safety caps or hazardous warning. This is a big deal to us since Tootsie Roll, our one year old, puts ALL THINGS in her mouth. 

Bottom line: we're not getting sick from cleaning the house. 

Sol-U-Guard is one of our favorite products. One spray and smells good, natural, and a healthy clean.  Powered by thyme oil and citric acid, it kills 99% of household germs. And we'd have a lot of them otherwise. 

If you want to know more, let me know in the comments or send me a message on our FB page.

5. Descendants 2 Trailer


Oh, c'mon! You had to know this one was coming! The trailer for this dropped last week at the Radio Disney Music Awards. 
It's pretty wicked! Pun totally intended. 
We are eating this trailer up. If you read last week's post, you may already know what die-hard Descendants fans we are around here. Just ask Pirate. 

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!

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…

Family Friday: D I Y Game of Clue!

I'm super psyched about this post! It's been in the works for about a week now, and has been a labor of love.  

Mr. Incredible works long hours, so family time has to be found and seized! Hopefully, this will be the first in a weekly series called Family Friday. True, I'm not posting this one on a Friday. But as it turns out, the timing turned out to be perfect as we are SNOWED IN!!
Without further ado, I give you:  The Game of Clue: DIY STYLE!


Nothing says family time like sitting around the table, accusing each other of murder! Clue is a game that is older than tablets and apps. It comes from my childhood, but Mr. Incredible and Pirate had never played before.
Pirate loves few things more than a good craft, so I wanted to see if we could use the wonders of Google (and our printer) to make our own. Originally, I had planned on personalizing it by making family and friends into the suspects. But I thought I’d better keep it simple this time. As soon as Pirate heard that I had a…

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…
