Shabby apple has so many great options. They even have some great deals as well! I have a hard time shopping for myself. I tend to go shopping and come home with stuff for my boys! When I do shop for myself though, I don't necessarily look for the lowest price. I look for the best quality for the money! I am a thrift store shopper. However I find that it is really easy to come home with something that isn't quite what you thought it was. ~~~~~ What else guides you to pick clothing items that you will actually get life out of? We have talked about using quality rather than price as a guide for long-lasting style … [Read more...]

Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City


Please note: This is a sponsored post in collaboration with US Family Guides. As always, I have provided my honest opinion and original pictures. We celebrated our first day of summer at Schlitterbahn Waterpark in Kansas City! Waterparks are so much fun to make the summer heat tolerable. There are always certain attractions we look for when choosing a waterpark like wave pool and attractions that we can all enjoy from age 5-33. If case you don't know each Schlitterbahn location has a claim to fame attraction that makes them stand out like Kansas City's Schlitterbahn has Verrückt {World's Tallest Waterslide}! Upon entering the park, we are greeted by sculptures that look like a giant sandcastle. I actually had to call everyone back to wait for me! One of my favorite parts of Schlitterbahn Kansas City is the natural landscaping all around the park.

Hebrew National Hot Dog Summer Kabobs with Lemon Rice


Please note: This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #WhatAGrillWants #CollectiveBias Living in the South gives us some heat to deal with! This summer seems especially more hot & humid than usual. Grilling is my favorite way of cooking to avoid heating up the house even more! The hard part is deciding on what to grill. Grilling hot dogs and sausages can get tricky dealing with food allergies especially with my chicken allergy. Chicken is in most cheap hot dogs and sausages not too mention unnecessary poor quality meat and additives. Hebrew National provides a Hot Dog You Can Trust! Kroger is my go-to store for quick grocery trips. This time of year they offer a nice incentive to help make all our summer traveling more cost efficient with their "2X Fuel Point Weekends".   Wondering what makes a Hebrew National kosher hot dog premium? It's all about what makes the cut (and what doesn't). We're … [Read more...]
