7 Awesome DIY Halloween Crafts for Kids

Halloween has to be one of my favorite holidays. It wasn't until I had children.  It brings out the kid in me and we have so much fun preparing for it.  Plus I get to go through their candy and stash the good stuff. But the best way to enjoy Halloween with children is to make spooky, creep, scary, Halloween DIY crafts.  I found some easy and fun Halloween projects for us to try from some crafty bloggers.  Check them out!

Top Family Friendly Things to do in Oceanside, California

Thank you to the Club Wyndham Oceanside Pier, Visit Oceanside for providing us with tickets for excursions to facilitate this article and Legoland California for providing us with tickets.  It's so hot here in Arizona!  But I do prefer the dry to heat Florida's humidity.  I've noticed that this is the time many people escape to California for a cool break.  The weather is absolutely beautiful there and it is the perfect place to take the family with plenty to do and see, including beach days. We had been to Anaheim a few months prior and loved it.  This time we wanted to see more of the beach, along with hitting up some family friendly destinations so we decided to visit Oceanside, California. When traveling with young kids, there are …

Celebrate Lightning McQueen Day with an Easy DIY Finish Line Flag

This post is sponsored by Mattel. All opinions are my own. Guess what we are totally freaking out about? Lightning McQueen Day on September 5th! Lightning McQueen packs a 750-horsepower V-8 and can reach 60 mph in 3.2 seconds on his way to a 200-mph top speed.  My boys love anything with speed but they love their favorite character from the animated Pixar film Cars; Lightning McQueen. The kids are ready to open their Disney Pixar Cars 5 pack (available at Walmart) and get their engines rumbling.  It's a race between Shannon Spokes, Danny Swervez, Lightning McQueen, Jackson Storm, and Brick Yardley. The only thing they need is a Finish Race Car Flag. So, we decided to make our own very simple race car flags for the finish line! The …

Where to Shop for Back to School in One Place

This is a Sponsored Post for Walmart; however, all opinions are my own. Well, here we are again.  The madness begins with back to school shopping.  It's such an exciting time of year for everyone! After a full summer of road trips, slushies, and pool dates, we are all ready to get back into the swing of things. Last year I just wondered around with a list and what I couldn't find I had to go to another store.  It was pretty frustrating going back to school shopping then.  I was hoping it would be more exciting for the kids but It ended up being frustrating going to various stores and the kids got tired.  After all, they are picking out new clothes, snacks, crafts and school …

Top 10 Keto Side Dishes

I love living low carb.  I always feel so much clearer when I practice the Keto way of life.  One thing I have noticed though is my lack of using side dishes.  I have no problem finding protein and doing salads, but I'm getting a little sick of eating the same thing every day. I really wanted to shake it up.  I want to try new side dishes.  My "go to" side dish is brussel sprouts.  I haven't really tried anything else besides a simple salad.  So, I found 10 top keto and low carb side dishes that will make your mouth water.
