Sparkling Ice is Cool for Back to School





We used some serious survival skills to make it through the first week of school, one Homeschooler, 2 Public schoolers, and one in Private School, that's 4 kids in 4 schools, it will not be bland this year for sure. Even I got schooled this week, my super smart son somehow tricked all of us into doing his math homework each night, and we killed that straight A streak of his, literally. I guess the jokes on him.

The girls and I managed to squeezed in a few fun moments between all that schoolwork, but boy was it hot outside! Lucky for us I had packed our fridge full of refreshing Sparkling Ice to keep us cool. Seriously, summer is never over here, we have 2 seasons hot and Mardi Gras and so as we like to say: "Laissez Les Bons Temps Rouler!"




Always a ray of light to an otherwise boring day, my Sparkling Ice Black Raspberry, Sparkling fruity waters without the calories.  


A few other fun fruity favorites of ours: Orange Mango, Cherry Limeade, Kiwi Strawberry, Coconut Pineapple), visit Amazon.com to find all 15 sparkling waters.

Dachshund Sunset


Yes, this happened!

You have some free time on a Saturday, the kids want another pet, so you find yourself at the county animal shelter.

Those big brown eyes won't stop staring up at you, the kids ask to pet her, and a few days later you are a Dachshund mom.

There's no changing your mind, her Instagram account already has followers, even before the kids decide on a name.

Check out more pics of the very lovable Kimmy HERE.

Back to School with SMILES



Only a few more weeks of lazy summer mornings and beach time. How on earth will I get 4 kids to 4 different schools through all the rain and mud puddles? School lunches, snacks and homework? Sometimes it feels less like juggling and more like I'm jumping through hoops to get everything done.  Usually after the first month the kids settle into their own routines to get all their schoolwork done. At least will still have our evenings together, helps to get out all the extra energy out. 


There will always be time to spend on our love of hula hooping and sunsets at the bay and enjoy family fun time!!




Watching them all play together always brings a smile to my face, and to keep up there smiles throughout the long school day, I like to add
 Goldfish® Snacks into the lunch boxes.


Since this year I will officially have 3 teenagers in the house, they now like to pack their own lunches and it usually includes extra Goldfish® Snacks to share with all their friends.





Find more inspiration on the Goldfish Youtube Channel HERE.

Join in on the fun with My OREO Flavor Creation: Circus Peanut OREO



My OREO Flavor Creation is inspired by my childhood and what has been my favorite candy for decades, there's nothing better than a circus peanut, I can't remember at what age I finally realized that they weren't actually peanuts, it was probably around age 12. But it wasn't until this year that I was told what the actual flavor of a circus peanut is, and from what I was told, it's banana. I'm really on the fence about that, so I'll stick with calling them "circus peanut flavor". 

Then during 2006 while I was pregnant with my youngest child, I discovered Golden OREO Cookies. I won't even begin to guess how many packages of cookie I ate that summer and from that my OREO Flavor Creation was born.








Fast forward almost 11 years from eating my first Golden OREO Cookies and it's time to celebrate again!


Joining the circus was something I dreamt about as a kid, so why not make it a reality and have our very own backyard three ring circus with all our friends!
