Fuel Your Summer with 2x Fuel Points at Kroger and a $100 Gift Card Giveaway!

Friday, June 28, 2013


As I've mentioned before, since moving to our new house I have turned into a HUGE Kroger fan!  Not only is the store conveniently located right up the road from us, but the deals are great AND I love knowing that I am earning fuel points with the purchases I make at the store.  Whether it's a weekly grocery trip or just a quick stop to grab milk the points continue to add up all month long. 



In a few weeks our family will be taking a small vacation to Cincinnati for a long weekend adventure.  I love that Cincinnati is about two hours away from Indianapolis - the perfect distance for a family with a toddler!  Our trip will include a visit to the Cincinnati Zoo, then an adventure to see the sharks at the Newport Aquarium and of course a stop at IKEA to load up on some necessary household items.  Wowsa!  We will definitely be driving around the city quite a bit - which means a ton of gas to be used during our family vacation.  My huband and I want this vacation to be an affordable trip, so being able to save a buck at the pump is one of our top priorities.
 Luckily, Kroger is offering 2x the fuel point weekends!  Normally every dollar spent on qualifying purchases at Kroger will earn you one fuel point which start to add up pretty quickly each month.   But now Kroger is offering a digital coupon that you can load on to your card to get double the fuel points on your weekend grocery stops! All through July you can head to Kroger's website to load your 2x the fuel points digital coupon onto your card to start earning double the points when you head to your local Kroger store on the weekends.  I'm super excited to be able to save up to a whole $1 off a gallon at any Kroger Fuel Center when I redeem 1000 fuel points.  That will save us a ton of money on gas during out trip that we can use towards our fun weekend adventure!  Plus, Kroger Fuel Centers are conveniently located throughout Indiana and Ohio which means we will definitely be able to use our fuel points throughout our family vacation.

Quit sweating as you watch those fuel prices slowly creep up higher and higher.  Start "Fueling Your Summer" with Kroger now by taking advantage of their amazing savings in the store as well as earn yourself double the fuel points on your purchases every weekend in the month of July.  Why not save your family money on groceries and gas at the same time?  Plus with the money you will save there is no excuse for not taking your family on that vacation this summer!



For more information, head on over to Kroger's website to get signed up and to clip your digital coupon beginning on July 1 to earn 2x the fuel points every weekend in the month of July.

But let me help you start earning those points with my latest and HOTTEST giveaway yet...

Win It:
--One (1) lucky winner will win a $100 gift card to Kroger. This giveaway is run via Rafflecopter. The more entries completed, the better your chances of winning! Open to US residents only.




 This giveaway was made possible by Kroger and their Social Media team.  I was compensated for this review with a gift card. All opinions are 100% mine.

Terrible TWOSday -- Potty Training Update

Tuesday, June 25, 2013

So I've been attempting to write this post but it's been a little hard if I do say so myself...



Apparently the life of seven year old Puggle is pretty rough.  I mean let's be honest - going for a 2 mile run, sleeping in the sun and chasing birds and dogs in the backyard is hard work.
If only..


Okay on to the REAL star of this post -- Mr. Potty Pants himself!  We are currently two weeks and two days into potty training and honestly I think we are doing AMAZING!!  He's had just one, yes one, accident in the past two weeks.  I'm so proud of my little guy.  We have been swimming, to the zoo, on several play dates and to the park and he'll still let me know when he has to potty.  Now, he still wears a diaper to nap and bed and he isn't waking up dry, but I think that's something we'll conquer in the next few weeks. 
He is still a little hesitant to poop in the toilet so for the past week we've put out a "Caca Train" that he would get as soon as he went poopy in the toilet.  (Yes, we refer to poop as caca, don't judge.  But blame my mother for starting that one.)  So tonight was a HUGE night.  
Cohen went poopy in the potty!!!
We totally got all excited and danced and he was absolutely thrilled the he finally got to open his train.  I'm hoping that it wasn't a coincidence and that it will happen again...like tomorrow.

 Big boy with his new trains -- and haircut! :)

So far we are doing well and I'm really happy with his progress.  We are going on a road trip to our hometown this weekend so it will be a big test of our training.  
Any tips on night time training I'd love it! 

Happy Potty Dancing! :)

You Won't Get Burned with 800Razors.com!

Thursday, June 20, 2013



 

Good razors are hard to find at a reasonable price.  When I do catch them on a hot sale, I try to stock up but unfortunately that isn't enough for my family.  I have this issued with my husband especially who is extremely particular about his razors.  I'll be sympathetic with him because he does have sensitive skin on his face so he prefers the razors with the 5 blades.  However, I cringe every time I have to buy his razor cartridges for $17 a  pop - and most of the time that's with a coupon!  So I started looking into other options because I knew there was a better choice.

800razors.com is a website that offers razors and cartridges delivered right to your door for a price that you can't beat at your local store.  Currently they offer a 3-blade and 5-blade razor for men and a 5-blade razor for women.  These razors are comparable to the name brands you find at the store but at literally half the cost!  You just choose the razor of your choice and order the number of cartridges that you are looking to purchase.  Prices start at $9.99 for 4 cartridges and there is FREE shipping!  You will also get a free handle for your first purchase but if you are interested in ordering more, handles cost just $3.99.  800razors.com also offers you the option of an automatic shipment every two, three or four months so you make sure to never run out of razors.  



Now, I'm sure you're wondering about quality, right?  Well of course I had my toughest critic test out the razors for me...my husband.  For the past month he's been using the 5 blade men's razor which is comparable to the Fusion.  His thoughts?  He's highly impressed!  He said the shave is clean and gets his hard spots. There was no razor burn or cuts after his shaves which were big factors in his testing.   My husband's only complaint was that it didn't vibrate like his his Fusion does, however let's remember he is a diva.  Overall though he was greatly pleased with the results.




800razors.com offers convenient service and affordable razors shipped right to your front door.  They promise a burn free experience not only on your skin but to your wallet too!  Don't get burned by razor prices as the store - it's time that you save yourself money and check out 800razors.com!

--To purchase your razors, check out 800razors.com.  You can also find them on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Terrible TWOSday - Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Tuesday, June 18, 2013

Since I have lived here in Indianapolis (going on eight years my friends) I have never attended an Indianapolis Indians game.  Now that Cohen is at an age where I feel like it's okay to be a bit lenient on his schedule at times, I thought it would be a great opportunity to go spend a nice summer evening at Victory Field with the family!  We went to celebrate Sophie's birthday plus right now baseball is at the top of our monkey's favorite list.  Cohen woke up that morning reminding us that we were going to a "bayball game."  He was so sweet, carrying his glove around with him all day and insisting on taking it with us.  The weather was perfect and we spent the evening in the lawn eating amazeballs nachos, pretzels, popcorn, Cracker Jacks and sipping on lemonade.  Cohen was a little upset that he couldn't go out and play but once the game started he had fun watching for a second before he decided it was more fun to roll down the hill with his little girlfriend that he made friends with as soon as we got there.  Overall it was such a fun time and I think Sophie enjoyed her birthday night cheering on the Indians...who I think won but we had to leave way before it was over. (The game went into eleven innings my friends and finally ended at 11:30. You know I was long in bed catching up on my DVR then!)



 Watching the game with pretzel in hand

My favorite picture...EVER

Kick-Off the Summer with a Mike the Knight Giveaway

Monday, June 17, 2013


Cohen is really into dragons and monsters lately.  Currently, one of his favorite shows is Mike the Knight on Nick Jr.    Let's be honest there are only so many episodes you can put on the DVR.  That's why when I heard about Mike the Knight coming to DVD I was just as excited as Cohen!  Recently NCircle Entertainment, along with HIT Entertainment announced that this month a new DVD, "Mike the Knight: Knight in Training" had been released.  This new DVD features five adventures which find Mike on missions to serve and protect the Kingdom of Glendragon.  From finding the perfect birthday surprise for his sister Evie, or helping others find their way back home, every day is an adventure with Mike and his friends!  The all-new Glendragon Matching Game, as well as Meet Mike’s Friends! Music Videos and a karaoke version of the theme song are also included. The DVD will sell for $12.99 and is approximately 56 minutes in length.  Cohen is obsessed!  We have to watch at least one episode every night and he is totally into Mike and his adventures with his friends.

As part of Mike's new DVD release, Fisher-Price also launched a variety of Mike the Knight toys.  I have never seen my child love something (except for his monkey blanket) as much as he loves his Mike the Knight Sword and Shield set (retails for $9.99).  His eyes lit up when he saw the package and for the past week he has made sure that his "fork and shield" as he calls them go with him to take a nap or when going to bed for the night.

This was after nap (hence the bed head) as he was watching his new Mike the Knight DVD.  Look at his extreme focus on this new movie!

  Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing also released a line of new books, including the fun activity book Welcome to Mike's World (retails for $4.99).  Cohen and I have fun reading it together.  He loves to find Mike and his dragon friends Squirt and Sparkle.  As you can see he loves to look at the pictures but he also loves coloring Mike too!



As a parent, I love how Mike the Knight is fun for all ages and encourages problem solving skills as well as teaches young children the importance of doing what is right.   Mike and his sister Evie's adventures are the perfect balance of fun and life skills, especially when the magic includes his friends Squirt, Sparkle and Mikes horse Galahad.  Mike the Knight: Knight in Training is the perfect addition to your summer DVD list.  So grab the popcorn, jump on the couch and enjoy a family night filled with Mike!

Buy It:
--Check your local retailers Mike the Knight: Knight in Training DVD, Mike the Knight Sword and Shield set and "Welcome to Mike's World" activity book.

Win It:
--One (1) lucky winner will win the following royal package: Mike the Knight: Knight in Training DVD, Mike the Knight Sword & Shield and “Welcome to Mike's World” book from Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing.  This giveaway is run via Rafflecopter. The more entries completed, the better your chances of winning! Open to US residents only.

The past few days have been super busy but so fun!  Yesterday I had a lunch and play date and then got to see my man Kenny.  Even though it would have been nicer to have had a nice cold beverage, he still put on an amazing show and makes me realize why I'm so obsessed with him.  Today we had another playdate and I"m a hoping for a longer nap -- cross my finger.s

Terrible TWOSday - Doing the Potty Dance

Tuesday, June 11, 2013

I have been working with Cohen for a few months in preparation for this time.  We would wear our big boy undies in the afternoons and evenings when I'd pick him up from the sitter and practice using the potty before bath or just randomly when he'd tell me he'd have to go.  What I have found with Cohen, however, is that if I put a diaper or Pull-Up on him he doesn't even attempt to go to the bathroom.  So my goal was to spend the first week of break tackling the potty training since I knew I'd be able to be home with him the entire time.

 Wait they go where?


Here's the run down of it so far:
Sunday - Day 1: Surprisingly we had very few accidents.  Our biggest one was when he got mad and wanted to have a popsicle for lunch.  So he decided it would be appropriate to just pee on the floor by the window  Let's just say there were no popsicles the rest of the day for that tantrum.  However we did attend a graduation Open House and he actually told me he had to use the potty while we were there thus scoring him an extra M&M (which were ironically used at centerpieces on the tables).

Monday - Day 2:  Still, not too many accidents but luckily I make him sit on the couch with a blanket or I would've had a huge mess to clean up.  Cohen really seems to be responding to the M&M technique as well as the fact that he's earning a new game on the iPad for a day when he can make it accident free.

Tuesday - Day 3:  Today we have only had one accident and actually I was really proud of him because he stopped himself to go run to the potty.  To me that's a huge accomplishment!   However, we have yet to have had a number 2 -- I'm still waiting...

Overall I'm pretty proud of my little man.  We do use diapers or Pull-Ups at bed or nap and refer to them as our "special night night undies."  I'll tackle that one later on.  But what kills me is he always wakes up with a poop in the morning or after nap so I haven't had a chance to have him try to use the potty for the poop.   I asked him why he doesn't want to use the potty when he has to poop and he told me, "I'm too big."  Honestly I think he's afraid but that's okay, one step at a time.

This mama is three days into the training and I'm going to attempt a Target trip this afternoon.  I now make sure I care a spare change of clothes with me whenever I leave the house just in case.  Overall I'm really happy with his progress and just cross my fingers that we don't have any set backs.

I'll update you all later on how things are panning out in the next few week!



Happy TWOSday! :)

Mommy Mondays - Recipe Rescue: Fish Tacos

Monday, June 10, 2013


Hey, remember once upon a time when I used to do these posts?

Guess what?  They're baaaaaccck!

Now that the sickness has subsided and summer is here, I have time to enjoy my family and really get back into the swing of things.  The previous three months I did a lot of NOT cooking.  It was soup, bread or take out.  My husband really wasn't a fan.  But now I'm 100% better than before so I'm trying to cook more often.  Saturday was Cohen's first "soccer practice" -- remember he's 2 so it was a group of toddlers running around like crazy.  So we got home just in time for lunch and I needed to cook something up quick.   Cohen and my husband both requested fish sticks and tater tots but I wanted to add a little more green to mine.  I decided to take my sticks and make fish tacos with them!  Super easy and actually pretty yummy! 

 My ranch came out a little fast as you can see..


Here's what you need:
--Frozen fish sticks (Our fav is Gorton's -- but it's your preference!)
--Flour tortillas
--Lettuce (I used yummy organic romaine!)
--Tomatoes
--Shredded Cheese
--Ranch dressing

The process is super easy and while the sticks cook you can prep the goodies for the tacos.
1.  Cook the fish sticks according to package.
2.  Once fish sticks are cooked and crispy, place 3 in the middle of your tortilla.
3.  Dress up your taco how you like it and enjoy!



These fish tacos are perfect for lunch or dinner, especially on those nights when you're in a bind as to what you should cook for your family.  If you have a picky eater like I do, another great thing is you can give that kiddo the sticks while the others enjoy the tacos without really wasting anything.  

Let's be honest, we all have nights where we just don't feel like cooking so a quick, easy and yummy recipe is what I'm talking about!

Happy Cooking! :)

Friday, June 7, 2013

I know I'm a little late but don't worry, now that my workshop is done I am officially on summer break -- wahh hoooo!  I was at the doctor yesterday for my montly baby check and the nurse goes, "Oh yeah, you're on break now.  You teachers..."  I laughed and said, "Oh Jen, you come do my job for one day and you'll understand why teachers are given this break - because otherwise we'd have a lot more crazy teachers!"

Truth really.

Polaroid Fotobar Review and Giveaway

Saturday, June 1, 2013


We have officially been moved into our new house now almost a year.  While it definitely takes time for a house to become a home, I'm not the fastest when it comes to home decorating.  Sure I've picked out the paint colors and the furniture but the little things -- like the accent pieces and pictures is what I'm so indecisive about.  I always wanted a stairway where I could hang framed family pictures up the wall and when we moved in, I knew this stairway was perfect for doing just that!

My blank wall

But as you can see right it is nothing but a blank painted wall.  I have a few pictures that are ready to be framed but the majority of my picture taking happens on my trusty ol' phone.  Yes, I may have a mild obsession with Instagram.  I needed a place that would not only easily upload my pictures from my phone and apps for me but  even better - frame them at an affordable price!

Polaroid Fotobar was the perfect place to turn to for my picture needs!  You can easily upload photos from your phone, computer, Instagram account or even your Facebook page and store them into your Fotobar account.  Once you have chosen the photos you want to use, you can search through tons of options that Polaroid Fotobar has to offer.  Custom art prints include framed pictures or canvas art, poster art where you can turn your favorite photo into a poster sized picture or even have your photos printed on bamboo!  You are sure to be able to turn your pictures into a piece of artwork that you will love to show off.

Here is an example of what a few framed art pictures - I love how it dresses up the room!

Another great feature of Polaroid Fotobar is how easy the site is to navigate and use.  I was specifically looking to turn a few of my pictures into nice framed pieces that I could display on my staircase.  So, I quickly uploaded my pictures and was able to edit them to ensure the best quality of picture.  Then I chose the type and color of frame that I wanted to use.  I went with the metal white frame to stay neutral to the rest of my decor and trim throughout our house.  Once I framed my newly edited pictures, I was given the opportunity to  preview my work one last time before I headed to the checkout process.  That's it - Polaroid Fotobar made my picture framing experience super easy and so quick to get through! 

Just a friendly reminder that Father's Day is quickly approaching us.  This would be the perfect time to explore Polaroid Fotobar and find that perfect gift for dad on his special day.  I'll make it even better for you my friends -- from now until June 30th when you place an order on Polaroid Fotobar, use the code FBL32020 and you'll get an extra 20% off your purchase!  I know, I know.  Now you really can't pass it up.
