Thanks Tiffanie!
We contacted you via email but posted it here just to make sure you would see it!

Thanks to all who entered!

Bulu Weight Loss May 2015

So Groupon had a really good deal for the Bulu Box
3 months for $7
It's typically $10 so I felt like I got a real bargain!

Now when I signed up I figured that I would get the Original Box because that was something that I really liked, but the Weight Loss Subscription Box from Bulu wasn't right for me. 
However now after I received it I realize the deal was only for the Bulu Weight Loss and I am stuck getting two more months of a box that I don't necessarily have an interest in.

However, look at the bright side - maybe you are interested... 

Here's what I got

The Connect Box - Review and Unboxing

If you follow my Instagram you know that I promised you guys a new subscription box review!
and as you saw we made slime... WOOT!!

The Connect Box

I am super excited to show this to you guys because this is something that I truly struggle with as a parent. Tuesday is our dedicated family night but sticking to that coming up with good ideas that can include everybody... can pose a challenge. 

For $26.00 monthly you can get pre-planned activities that engage the entire family. 

Here's the Unboxy Box Video!

Timeless Truth - Eye Masks

Hey all!
Follow up post!
If you remember about a month ago I did a post about Timeless Truth
and that I would post the other masks as I did them.

The other day I tried the Eye Lift Bio Cellulose Masks that I received free for review
Just like the the other mask I left this on for 15-20 minutes
They recommend that you do one eye at a time so you can see the difference.

I do not really have dark circles or visible signs of aging around my eyes yet
so signs may not be as apparent on me as on others.

There I am with my eye mask. 

Here is the after
There is a light amount of lightening that is visible but other than that for me these were for the experience. I still love these masks and I still have one more to try!


Do you have a mask that you love?

May Ipsy Glam Bag

Ipsy Time Kiddos!

This month... Jetsetter

My Bag!
(Also maybe you ask why I do a birchbox unboxing and not an Ipsy)
I would have but that Blandi wasn't even in the bag! Would have been hard to do one on stuff that wasn't even IN the bag... next month kids... next month.

Quick and Easy Croutons

I love salad, I've been told I like a "honeymooner" salad
Oil Vinger - Lettuce - Cheese - Croutons
That's my JAM right there!

I'm also super tired and don't have the energy to do the Ipsy blog so I figured I would do this quick and easy post in case any of you guys were interested.

All you do is dice up day old Italian bread

Preheat your oven for 375 

Toss the bread on a baking sheet and coat with olive oil, sea salt, and pepper 

Put them in until they are the desired darkness. I like them super toasty!
I love them.. so much more than the ones that you buy at the grocery store!

How do you like your salad??

Saw these at the grocery store the other day!
You can watch the Unboxing here..

Blossom Box Kids Subscription Box Review + Unboxing

*Products were received at no cost for review purposes

So I promised you guys a monthly children's craft subscription box and today I am bringing it to you!!

The company is called Blossom Box Kids
and I'm super excited because not only did we get to review their boxes we will also be giving out a box to one of our lucky readers!

This is the kit that we reviewed whose theme was "storytelling"
I ultimately despite loving birds decided to do this one because it seemed like it had more age appropriate activities.

Coming Up

Wow... what a few past days
First Sunday with no Sunday Soup
because I was really ill and on Mothers Day to boot.

We've had a ridiculous string on events and illnesses in the past week... 
we were lucky enough to have my mother in law here to help us which... without her would have been really hard.. 

Finally feeling a little better wanted to share a picture of one of the crafts my kids made me for mothers day!

My mother in law helped them make it! Isn't it adorable?

Anyway keep your eye out for a really cook kids craft subscription box either tonight or tomorrow!! Super excited to be back on track!

And since I missed it, Happy belated Mothers Day!
Hope it was fantastic!

Way late in the game... but, "HEY I TRIED JAMBERRY NAIL WRAPS!"

figured I would give it a go

So here are my normal nails

Hello's - Check Ins - and Apologies

Hello my friends! 
I have neglected my blog these past few days, many apologies for that!

I have a few reasons why...
My mother in law is here from out of town
The plague I've spoken of in prior posts has SPREAD
and THEN another plague came and bit us.
Add in the new baby and all that, that entails -- crafts and unboxings just seem like too much.

Sunday Soup: Spring Vegetable Soup with Pesto

I just love spring
and I just love soup
alas, most of my favorite soups are those hearty, meaty ones we eat in winter.
This week I was craving a light spring soup
so I went to my Pinterest!

I searched for easy, spring, soup
bunches of options but I found THIS ONE

The beginning of this glorious creation

Everyday Happy Free Trial Review

I have my Ears to the ground when it comes to these boxes
and I GET AROUND the internet

So when I heard there was a company called "Everyday Happy"
(who people found to be a little bit close to another company ((that likes to tell the truth..?))
that had a free trial option AND delivered diapers, soaps and toiletries monthly in two separate services
I knew I had to try it out and see

Allow me to show you my unboxing

The Bet

If you know me and my husband we are kind of the goofiest duo ever. WE have the lamest jokes ever... and we laugh at not only our own terrible jokes but also at each others.. we are pretty much a match made in lame joke heaven ...

On top of all this we are CONSTANTLY betting on things... sometimes things that matter sometimes things that do not. 
Most of the time.. the object up for grabs...

is it money?


is it some gift?


is it knowing your were right?


but mostly it's a backrub.

Our current bet...Taco Bell breakfasts.
My husband and kids love TB
fur srs.
I wanted very much to try their breakfasts.... it took me a while.. I think I tried it back in January
We decided we'd bet on how long it would last
My husband said it would stick around, I said it wouldn't last past May 1st.
Well folks. 
It's MAY
I lost. 
Live Mas'
My husband, as cute as he is didn't even opt for the backrub... do you know what that turd is making me do?

Eat Taco Bell Breakfast three days in a row.

So far I've gotten out of it because the Taco Bell here where we live doesn't do breakfast, and so he'd have to drive far in the morning...HHAHAHAHAH YAY!

Except eventually it's going to get me... blindside me and it's gonna be rough!
Sure I won't have to do dishes but I'll have to eat one of the worst breakfasts ever...
Am not looking forward and just wanted to share.

What crazy things do you and your spouse do? Leave me some comments!
