Scare-Free Halloween Savings at Family Dollar

This post is sponsored by Family Dollar but all opinions are honest and my own.

My middle child has been needing some extra attention lately. It’s been quite the transition for her with big sissy back in school and a new baby constantly in my arms, so I’ve been intentional with giving her special jobs and making sure she feels included. 

During a recent trip to Family Dollar she helped me make every decision as we stocked up on Halloween goodies.  Because the prices are so affordable I even felt comfortable giving her the liberty to make some choices on her own, and I watched as her confidence shot through the roof!

She was happy knowing she assisted me, and with Smart Coupons (Family Dollar’s saving program), I was happy knowing that the savings were adding up too!

Organizing Healthy School Lunches With Sistema®

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of Sistema® ; however, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

What happened to summer vacation? We are just a few days away from the new school year, and whether you’re holding onto to these last moments of freedom and fun, or counting down until your kiddos get back to their regular studies, preparations must be made!

I’m feeling pretty good about the fact that I’ve already purchased the school supplies my daughter will need, but there’s a major part of the process I really want to better plan for.

Lunch!! 

My child will continue to bring food from home like she did last year, but thanks to Sistema® I’ll be able to stay organized while preparing quick, healthy meals. Read More

How We Styled Up for School With OshKosh!

This post is sponsored by Everywhere Agency on behalf of OshKosh B’gosh. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are 100% honest and my own.

My oldest daughter started kindergarten last month, and now that we’re in our 5th week (how is that even possible??), we’re really getting into the swing of things.

Choosing clothes for the school day is a major part of our morning routine, and thanks to OshKosh B’gosh it’s been a smooth process. My Alexandra knows her style and isn’t always receptive to me adding my two cents. I’m learning to be ok with that because she has a number of awesome clothing options from OshKosh!

How I Simplified Back To School Shopping!

My oldest baby starts kindergarten in 3 days. That’s right. Just 3 days!! We got her registered, met her teacher, and went BTS shopping. My mama heart might not be ready for this, but thanks to Walmart.com, it was so easy for me to get her everything she needs to get started on the right foot!

A Special Date With My Daughter

On Monday I did a thing.

After a little planning and coordinating, I took my 5 year old daughter out for some very special quality time. 

I set out to spend quality time with each of my girls, but I had this strong urge, this pulling on my heart strings, to take it up a notch for my oldest. 

It wasn’t fancy. It wasn’t far. It wasn’t very expensive. 

But it was special, and memorable, and everything we both needed.
