Our New Year's Resolution Of Living A Healthier Lifestyle in 2020

I’ve partnered with vitafusion and L’il Critters as part of an Influencer Activation and all opinions expressed in my post are my own.

How to Make Non Candy Valentine's Conversation Hearts with Recycled Crayons

This is a Sponsored Post and contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on a link and purchase something, I will receive commission. I'm not sure how long the Valentine's Conversation hearts candies have been out.  I've been receiving them since I was a little girl.  I never even liked the taste of them.  They always ended up going to waste. Every year the kids come home with candy for Valentine's Day and every year I take some and dump them.  Don't get me wrong, they get candy.  But we don't need more dentist visits so I'm particular about what they keep.  No chewy candy that can sit in their teeth.  This year I bought tiny heart lollipops for my little one's class. But for …
