#WrapNGo on a STICK with a side of Savings

Is it just me or are kids more apt to eat something on a stick?

As much as I would love pancakes, eggs and sausage for breakfast; I do not have time to cook it. I don't even have a chef that can do it. My kids would love to make breakfast but at 5 years old, I know better than to let them try. They can use the microwave though, so Foster Farms® NEW Pancake Wraps are a perfect compromise. Plus they are quick. I am all about that. Waking up is hard to do. #WrapNGo breakfast is not!

You know what else is easy? Saving money!

WOW Wednesday! Productivity

Today was so productive! Late last night (early this morning) I made 5 new headbands. Took photos for next blog post before summer camp. Got the boys registered for kindergarten and met both their teachers. Went home, edited pictures and wrote the post. Picked up the boys, set up at the market. Sold 3 of the 5 headbands plus three feathered pretties and some bows. Now everyone has showered and is in bed. Nothing to do now but sleep!

And I almost forgot!!!! The teachers are glad to let me do the scholastic book orders this year. I am such a book nerd. Plus I get to help with Masterpiece Art in the classroom. I am going to be one of those super annoying room mothers.

When life is good, it is very very good!

Weepy Wednesday

So I am not crying now. but I was crying as I watched Pixar's Inside Out Movie a week ago. There were so many moments during the movie that I wanted to replay and remember. I have been wanting to get a tattoo for the #semicolonproject for a while now. After receiving the money raised on the GoFundMe page, I decided this was a splurge in the budget but also part of my healing process. Depression is real. Anxiety is real. Suicide is real. End the stigma and doubt and denial.

#Back2SchoolReady with Kellogg's and Walmart

Two Weeks! I don't know about you but our Summer Break seemed to fly by! Working from home, summer camp, and visits to see Grandma kept our family busy. The boys have one more visit to Phoenix and then hopefully we can get on a school schedule. Thankfully Sam and Jay are excited to go back to school. I did 95% of our Back to School shopping at Walmart this year. The boys loved to pick out a new backpack, folders and binders. They even had fun picking out new underwear and socks. It doesn't take much to keep my boys happy. No trip to Walmart is complete without snacks. 

As we came around the corner we found a HUGE display of Rice Krispies Treats.
