It’s Friday, it’s Friday!!
We are officially ONE WEEK from the last day of school here. I don’t know if I’m excited, or filled with dread. Can it be a smidge of both?
I know that Jon David and I will have a lot of fun together, but I also know that 8 year old boys get bored…and having a baby around this Summer will definitely change things. We can’t just pick up and go whenever we want!! It will be a learning experience for me, for sure.
Also, Lucy turns SIX MONTHS old on Sunday!! How is this possible??
Half a year!! A twentieth of a decade!! I can’t even stand it.
She’s also got 2 bottom teeth now. So, she’s basically an adult.
Before I go over this week’s posts, I thought I’d share a few things I’m loving.
I’ve struggled for years with ways to teach Jon David about people in need and social issues in a way that he can relate to. It’s hard. So I was so excited to come across Mightee Kids!!
Mightee Kids works like this: Purchase a month’s kit (or subscribe to automatically receive monthly — it’s $18), and get a package in the mail. The package will have a T-Shirt for your child, and a brochure with details on the charity for that month. Read the brochure with your child, and talk about how $5 of your monthly fee was used to help that cause. The T-shirt will also be about that month’s cause. Talk about what a great way it is to spread the word!! Jon David and I discussed what he would say when anyone asked him about his shirt.
I love that this is a FUN opportunity to help kids in need and get Jon David excited about spreading the word.
**I was not paid for advertising, nor am I affiliated with Mightee Kids in any way, I just think it’s really cool!!
I looked into the Honest Company awhile back and dismissed it as too expensive. But a friend recently signed up for a free trial and was really excited, so I decided to take another look.
With the Honest Company, you sign up to receive automatic monthly shipments of diapers and wipes with their Diapers Bundle, household cleaning and hygiene products with their Family Essentials Bundle, or you can combine and do both. ALL products are 100% non toxic, and the diapers are sustainable, chlorine free, and plant based.
The diaper and wipes bundle is $79.95 a month, which at first sounded a bit high. But after pricing the same amount of product with the brand I normally use, (Huggies) I found that the difference was only $10 -15 a month. The diapers also come in different patterns and you can change the patterns you want or make changes to when your bundle ships every month. I’m definitely excited to give these and try!!
** In the interest of full disclosure, I have included a referral link. This has no bearing on my opinion of the product whatsoever. But if you’re going to sign up, I might as well save a few bucks!!
This week, Shelly and I invited a few other bloggers to participate in a Ben & Jerry’s theme week. All of our desserts were based on the popular ice cream flavors.
I had so much fun coming up with my desserts. Ben & Jerry are flavor geniuses, so it was hard to choose just a few.
For our last day of Ben & Jerry week, I shared Chunky Monkey Sandwich Cookies. The filling is a creamy banana ice cream-like frosting. SO GOOD!!
Peabody made Coffee Heath Bar Crunch Swirl Cookies. I love that yummy swirl in the middle.
I repeat — Chocolate Pudding Frosting.
I had so much fun this week, and I hope you get the opportunity to try a few of these recipes. They’re all amazing!!
Have a fabulous weekend!!
