CHRISTmas time kids craft!

                  No Bake Ornaments

These are so easy to do and the kids loved the idea of making them for Christmas presents! :-)


1 cup of flour
1 cup of salt
1/2 cup of cinnamon 
3/4 cup of warm water

1. mix all of the ingredients together
2. Wash hands.
3. If dough is sticky add flour to hands. 
4. Roll out and make ornaments
5. Let the ornaments set for 24 hrs or more depending on how thick!

Advice: I put flour on mat/table when I rolled it out and put some on too so they came out of cookie cutters well!

I'm so excited that it's that time of year again that everything pumpkin comes out! Examples:

Pumpkin Bread
Pumpkin Spice Frappes from Starbucks 
Pumpkin Cookies

Pumpkin Pie
And etc.

My absolute favorites are pumpkin ice cream and pumpkin frappes from Starbucks as pictured above! Mmmm mmmm :-)


Magic Kingdom part 1


                    Magic Kingdom

The Magic Kingdom is broken up into different lands: Adventureland, Frontierland, Liberty Square, Fantasyland,  Tomorrowland and Main Street. The only one that we didn't really get to was Frontierland; we walked thru it tho. 

We ate at Cosmic Rays which is a Quick Service restaurant but you can sit down inside in the air condition or outside. You get a lot of food for the Quick Service meal! 

We rode the magic tea cup ride the first day, we rode the buzz lightyear ride, the people mover ride and the indoor thru the years ride. It was raining so there wasn't a lot that we could do but we tried and kept busy! We didn't let the rain stop us. ALWAYS bring a poncho and have water handy! :-) 

Starbucks is considered a Snack Option. I got a venti Pumpkin Spice Frappe 2 times while we were there and it kept me going! 

The Seven Dwarves Mine Ride was a must for my 4.5 year old and my hubby. They waited an hour for it and then it had to shut down for a while and they received a fast pass for later and only had to wait 5 mins or so.

 So much to do and so little time to do it all in! That's all for this post. Check back for more on Disney!

Update for FitBit

     As you can see I have different color        
                      bands too! :-) 

FitBit has recently added a new tab called Challenges. You can pick from 3: daily showdown, workweek hustle or weekend warrior. You can see how many steps per day your friends get instead of just cumulative! :-) it's a great motivation tool to get you moving so you're on top! 

I am very much obsessed with FitBit.
And having friends that like it as much as me helps a bunch.

Homemade Lunchables

My son was always asking for lunchables at the store so I came up with this which is not processed like the lunchables but way more affordable.

Kroger Honey Ham: $4.99/lbs & got 1lbs
Kraft String Cheese: 12/pk for $2.50
Ritz Fresh Stacks box: $2.50

Each lunch he gets 2 pieces of ham, 5 or 6 crackers and 1 string cheese.

About .50 cents a lunchables as opposed to $1-$3 each.
