Toll House Cookie Skillet
I am the first to admit that I love a good cookie. What is better than one cookie? How about a Toll House Skillet Cookie?
The truth behind my love of this recipe is that I love the idea of baking cookies. However, once I make a sheet or two, I am over it. Once I’ve mixed up the batter, I don’t want to be getting up every ten minutes to take cookies out of the oven and fill up the cookie sheets again. That’s why I decided try a cookie skillet instead of individual cookies.
After seeing the idea on Pinterest, I decided it was worth a try. I loaded the next batch of cookie batter into a skilled and baked it until done. This is favorite new way to bake cookies. [Read More…]
We only have two more Spring Breaks to take a vacation as a family. This year we will Cruise the Bahamas for Spring Break! Our teenage daughter’s only request is that this Spring Break trip must include sun and fun. Well, this year we plan to deliver just that. Planning a vacation for the three of us takes more than a little bit of coordination and planning. With the travel dates set well in advance by the school system, all we need to do is arrange for time off that week.
First Things First: Cruise or Resort?
The first step was to contact our travel agent to let him know when we wanted to get away, where we wanted to go (South!), and how much we planned to budget for the trip. We have a personal relationship with our travel agent and he was able to quickly come up with three options. As much as we wanted to travel out of the country, the Mexican beach resort option was immediately dismissed because it required us to obtain passports. I know we eventually need to apply for passports but it’s just not in the budget right now. That left us with two options: a beach resort in Puerto Rico or a cruise to the Bahamas. [Read More…]
Free Disney Bucks Printable
Alright where are my fellow Disney lovers!? We just found out that this coming October my family will be traveling to Disney World for 8 days. I am beyond excited, and my daughter is even more excited than me. This will be my 2nd trip with my daughter, and to be able to go during Halloween which is my favorite holiday is super exciting. And as we are finding out, super expensive!
I wanted to think of a way to set a budget for my daughter and to help her earn her own money to spend while we are there. I am not a fan of a free for all during vacations, so I make sure my daughter knows how much it costs to go, and how hard we work to go. So she loves being able to “work” for her own spending money, and it helps us from overspending as well. That’s why we came up with Disney Bucks! [Read More…]

For anyone that is considering going to Disney World in the Fall I have 7 reasons why you are making a great decisions. And if you have never considered going to Disney World in the fall keep reading to find out why you should! [Read More…]
Super Wubble Ball Is The Strongest Yet!
*This is a sponsored post brought to you by the Super Wubble Ball, but as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own 🙂
I know it’s only the first day of fall but I am already thinking about Christmas time. I am a bit of a planner so I think of gifts months in advance. So when I was given the chance to try out the new Super Wubble Ball I was stoked to check it out and see if it would be a good gift for the kids in my family. We have had other Wubble Balls in the past that were a lot of fun, but we lost them thanks to some sharp sticks in the back yard. We were ready to give these brand new stronger Super Wubble Balls a chance. [Read More…]

School is back in session! I don’t know about you, but it’s been a stressful time for me. We have recently bought a new house and moved into a new school zone. Which for me means that I have driven my daughter to school and back (which is 40 minutes, 4 times a day) for the last 3 weeks. We move into our new home in a few days, and when we do our drive cuts down to 7 minutes, so a big improvement! My daughter has also made the school play this year so we are busy bees! And there is only one thing to do when you have been running around like a crazy person for 3 weeks, and what is that? A spa day of course! Sometimes you have to slow down and take a few hours to treat yourself because you deserve it! [Read More…]
