Have you seen new school supply designs that Staples came out with this year?

They sent me a sample pack of the new products that they are offering this year and my two girls (6 and 12) went crazy over the new Teen Vogue line of products as soon as the package was opened.  I had to hold them off so that I could get a picture first!

High-Dollar Kimberly Clark Pick Up The Value Coupons!!

High Dollar Diaper Coupons
We are *so close* to finally being out of the diaper phase!! I love being a mom, I really do. But I would gladly hire out the potty training part of this whole parenting thing.

We have all kinds of fun things planned for this summer, but my summer objective is to finally, after 12 years of almost constant diapers, be D.O.N.E.

And did anyone else forget how to do the whole potty training thing after each kid? I’ve potty trained three kids so far and I still feel like I have no idea how to do this. I honestly don’t remember what I did with my others. Did they potty train themselves? I think I had a big part in it – I just don’t remember what it was. Please tell me this is a normal mom thing? ;)

Since I’m in the potty training trenches this summer, I was excited to see some high-value coupons from Kimberly Clark Pick Up The Values that will help!

It’s completely free to sign up for Pick Up The Values and you can print the coupons directly from your computer. It just takes a minute to fill out the form so that you can get to the coupons.

They have several coupons available right now, but if you share the coupons then you’ll get even higher value coupons!!

You can save up to…

$4/1 package of Huggies Overnights Diapers
$3/1 package of Pull-Ups Training Pants
$2/1 package of Huggies Little Swimmers Disposable Swimpants
50¢/2 rolls of Viva Paper Towels

Any potty training advice? Please feel free to leave suggestions in the comments! :)

Ragú Easy Recipes + Enter To Win A Trip To Italy!! #NewTraDish

Apr

2014
Thursday

I’m thrilled to be partnering with Ragú as a compensated brand representative to share this post with you guys.

Have you ever seen the movie Fiddler On The Roof?

It’s one of the ones that’s in my list of my top ten favorite movies of all time.

In one of the scenes in the movie the husband and the wife are arguing and things in the house are going crazy… but then the Sabbath dinner begins (for those who haven’t seen the movie, it’s about a Jewish family living in Russia in 1905).

The candles are lit, everyone sits down, prayers are said (sung), and dinner is shared all together.

During the Sabbath dinner scene while the prayers are being sung, you get a sequence of images of different families all over the town who are doing exactly the same thing at the same time.

Everyone all over the city has dropped everything that they were doing to sit down, thank God, and enjoy a meal together.

Every time I watch Fiddler On The Roof I think about that scene for days afterwards and how important it is to set aside time to sit and eat together as a family regularly, even if it’s not every night.

Things can get a little crazy from time to time with a family of 6 (okay, things are pretty much crazy ALL of the time!)

We are either getting school done, cleaning, going to sports activities, walking our new puppy (my goodness big dogs need to be walked A LOT!), or meeting with friends.

With the craziness of life, there aren’t a lot of opportunities to all sit down together as a family and talk.

Our desire is for mealtime, and especially dinner, to be more than just food. We want it to be a time to unwind from the day and talk about life, questions, fun things that we did that day, what we learned… as much as we can fit into that 30 minute to 1 hour window.

One of the biggest hurdles in having a family meal time is the time that it takes to prepare everything. Ragú is sharing ways to keep family mealtimes a priority with easy-to-create meals.

One of my favorite go-to easy meals is to put a large spaghetti squash in the oven to cook, saute some onions with ground beef, add in a jar of Organic Ragú Sauce and serve over the cooked spaghetti squash! It’s super easy and the whole family loves it.

Ragú actually has an entire section on their Facebook page devoted to easy recipes to make menu planning simple.

In addition to lots of great recipe ideas on their Facebook page, there’s also an opportunity to win a trip to Italy for a family of four!! Just click here to enter to win (super easy entry!) How fun would that be?!

A little more about our sponsor:

With 11 tomatoes in every jar, Ragú® Old World Style® Traditional Sauce is our richest, thickest recipe ever!

Ragú has the Authentic Italian taste American families love and a variety of great tasting, quick, and easy-to-make family favorite recipes.

NO PURCHASE NECESSARY.  Legal residents of the 50 United States (D.C.) 18 years and older.  Ends 5/6/14.  To enter and for Official Rules, including odds, alternate method of entry, and prize descriptions, visit www.RaguSweeps.com.  Void where prohibited.

Unclaimed Baggage Center
Have you ever been to the unclaimed baggage center in Alabama? It’s where the luggage from the airlines goes if no one claims it (they make every attempt possible to get the luggage to its rightful owner before it ends up at the center).

Tiffany from Stuff Parents Need shared her experience about the Alabama Unclaimed Baggage Center and I thought y’all might enjoy reading about it!

Have you ever been to the unclaimed baggage center? What did you think? Is it worth making a trip if you live reasonably close?
