1st Day of Preschool


My munchkins had their first day of school last week! I put daddy in charge of the camera and so we ended up with over 30 photos! If you know Ryan you are not surprised by this! Here are some of the pictures…I just love them all!









So glad that my kids are loving preschool!


As you might remember, my family loves Real Kids Shades!


Here are my Benjamin and Chloe sporting their cool shades! I love this picture.


Currently, Real Kids Shades is offering 2 Facebook Promotions! Both promotions run till September 27, 2012.


For the first promotion Real Kids Shades is offering 20% off all items on their website. All you need to do is sign up with your name and email address to register and receive your coupon code.





Real Kids Shades, formally MFS Eyewear, is a manufacturer of childrens sunglasses for infants through the tween yearsThe second promotion is for a chance to win a $250 Visa Gift Card from Real Kids Shades!!! This gift card is just what you’ll need to cover some of those inevitable back to school expenses (and maybe buy your kids some cool shades)! Click and all you need to do is enter your name and email for a chance to win!



Sunglasses are important gear for your child during back to school time and throughout the year! Your child’s backpack should always have a pair of sunglasses handy so they can put them on when they’re outside at recess, or walking home from the bus stop.


I have learned the importance of children wearing sunglasses. And don’t let those clouds fool you…the sun is still shining through and can deliver as much damage to your eyes. My kids wear their shades everyday in the car, I am glad they are used to them now and want to wear them…plus I think they are so cute when they do!


So go get your discount and enter to win a Visa GC today on the Real Kids Shades page.


Do your kids wear sunglasses? What would you do with $250 Visa gift card?



I will be receiving a pair of Real Kids Shades for posting about these promotions. Although I will receive this product at no charge, all opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Oogieloves The Big Balloon Adventure ~ Interactive Movie & Fun Times with the Kids


The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure (2012) Poster

Last month, my kids and I were invited to a special screening of Oogieloves The Big Balloon Adventure and a special meeting with Kenn Viselman, the creator of Ooglieloves. This movie is one of a kind! It encourages kids to get up an move…yes….get up and move in the theater!!! My kids loved it! There are prompts on the screen that tell the kids when to get up and when to sit down. My daughter loved dancing around and moving, but my son was more reserved, he just wanted to sit and watch the movie. We had a great, fun-filled day which started with breakfast, and the kids got to do a craft. Then the kids got to go to Camp Oogieloves, while mommy bloggers got to talk with Kenn. It was a fun meeting where we got to see Kenn’s vision for children’s entertainment. His theory is that children are watching TV and movies, so why not make them interactive as well as educational. The Oogieloves hits the theater tomorrow, August 28th.

Tomato~Basil Summer Pasta {Recipe}



I made pasta for dinner last night, but with the summer heat, hot pasta is not as appetizing! Instead I cool the pasta off and serve it cold or lukewarm with just a couple ingredients from the garden.


Summer Pasta
Recipe type: Main
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 2-4
Fresh summer pasta
  • pasta noodles
  • large organic tomato
  • basil
  • sea salt
  • extra virgin olive oil
  • mozzarella or Parmesan cheese {optional}
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions {omit salt}.
  2. Chop up tomato into bite size pieces. Cut up the basil.
  3. Drain pasta and rinse off. You can let it cool off or serve lukewarm.
  4. Add tomato, basil, and sea salt to the pasta. Pour in desired amount of olive oil. Toss together. Top with cheese if desired.


I used home grown tomatoes and basil! This meal is so simple to make and tastes great with just a little bit of salt and olive oil! I used Bari Basil infused olive oil, which gave it extra flavor! Enjoy!


I am linking up with Delicious Dish Tuesday! Head on over and check out all the great recipes!
