Though there are only 3 in our family, with my husband and my toddler, a lot of snacking goes on around here. We all seem to have our own personal favorites. I love chips, cookies and chocolates. My husband prefers crackers, pretzels, and licorice. Elodie’s favorites are raisins, cookies and popcorn.
We were so excited by the amazing assortment of Newman’s Own Organics that we received to munch on. There was really something for everyone with a wide range of unique flavors and a variety of types of foods.
The quality is top-notch, and there are not too many companies out there that make organic snacks a priority. I am in love with Newman’s Own Organics!
I am really glad to see a company put forward great tasting snacks while still being conscious of the ingredients and keeping the harmful chemicals out of them. They have a wide mix of healthy and more indulgent treats. Their chocolates are rich and absolutely delicious. I couldn’t wait to rip open each new flavor!
Dane was very happy with his loot of pretzels and licorice! I even snuck some of the sour licorice flavors like strawberry and apple, I don’t normally like licorice.
I tried to hide away these tasty treats in a secret stash so that I didn’t have to share all the yummy chocolate goodness. Organic chocolate and cream filled cookies, a variety of top quality chocolate and tasty chocolate cups made a perfect Mommy-needs-some-me-time snack stash.
Elodie got the healthiest bounty of the bunch- the sweet raisins, cinnamon alphabet cookies and light and crunch Pop’s Corn.
She happily dug in to sample all the yummy treats!
I loved having so much to sample, but with such a big variety to enjoy, we had plenty to share with friends. Many of these treats were big hits at our playdates and parties.
I even used the pretzels to make these adorable favors for my sister’s baby shower!
Everyone got to enjoy the organic delights at the party and got to take home a cute little treat for the way home, too.
Newman’s Own Organics offers a wide variety of snacks that are sure to please all the different snackers in your family. If you haven’t given them a try, they might just surprise you!

When I gave birth for the first time 3 years ago, I had no idea how many costumes we would end up buying! With a small child, costumes are not just for Halloween, but also for special occasions, dress-up and just because. Elodie loves dressing up and playing in her fun outfits, but she especially loves dressing as the Disney princesses. We have quite the stock of princess gowns, perfect for attending Disney on Ice, Disneyland, Disney movies, and of course, tea parties at home. :)
One of the newest princesses, Merida, is such a cool character and has such a fun dress that I couldn’t wait to see my girl in it!
Even without a big red wig or a bow and arrow, this outfit is so adorable! I really love the way this looks on! It looks so pretty and high quality and will fit her for a while.
Elodie loved this outfit, too! She was so excited to get to dress up and wear her fun costume around.
I love shopping with Costume Discounters because they have a great selection, make returns easy, have great prices and ship quickly! Shopping online for costumes makes it easy to surprise Elodie with a new costume without having her beg for every single one in the store. Makes it so much more convenient for me, and it puts a big smile on her face.

Most of the movies we go to see in the theater these days are kid’s movies that we think Elodie will like. This movie was a little bit different because we wanted to go see a kid’s movie because my husband could not wait to see it. The Lego Movie is really a movie that the whole family can enjoy together! In other words, throughout the whole movie, “everything is awesome”!
Elodie doesn’t know much about legos (yet!) but since my husband grew up with them this movie had a lot of fun nostalgic throwbacks in it. Also, this movie was just so dang funny. The cast is great and just full of comedians who kept us laughing the whole time.
The story, too, was original and clever. I loved the twists in it, and the ending was simply amazing. The animation is superbly done. There is so much good I could say about this movie, but the truth is, you’re just going to have to see it for yourself!
This is an empowering and heartwarming story about Emmet, an average lego man just trying to fit in and follow the rules, who is able to discover his potential for greatness. Every kid needs to hear that message more often, and the creative possibilities of legos in their true little plastic form has always held the door open to the possibilities of what a child can create on their own. And in addition to this storyline, there is a whole subplot that is excellent, too!
Take your kids, and go see it. You will all love it.

Elodie and I had so much fun getting to see Disney on Ice presents Rockin’ Ever After! We were able to attend with my mom who had never been to a Disney on Ice show before and even as an adult really enjoyed it! The performers are so talented, and the costumes and special effects make the show unforgettable, no matter your age! Of course, it is always the most fun to get to watch Elodie’s face light up with joy at watching the magic of Disney come alive right in front of her eyes!
This show was fun because it featured four of the most headstrong, adventurous Disney princesses. Elodie loves Tangled, so she could not contain her excitement getting to see her favorite characters in person. Some of the characters, like Maximus, you would have to see for yourself to believe how real they looked!
The intro with Mickey and Minnie and the rest of the gang was very glitzy and fun. I liked the mix of music, which was some of the most popular songs from the shows along with a few of the lesser known songs. And there was some silliness thrown in, too, like Ariel’s sisters “vogue-ing”.
This is a great show that the whole family will love. Go check it out before it leaves town!
