It’s cookie time of year! I really miss working in an office because we would get to test so many desserts. ha! Now it’s just me and the kids baking away. The best part though is the sharing. Right?

That is where Rubbermaid TakeAlongs will come in handy this year. My Walmart has a huge display right on an endcap in the kitchen aisles. Choose your shape and size and which festive holiday color you’d like. They are perfect for storing then delivering your baked goods and can be used again and again!

Let me show you how we used ours…

We made Almond Butter Chocolate Bars which is a healthier version of the bars my mom used to make for us as kids. They are scrumptious and I love passing them along!

On the stove bring to boil then remove from heat: 1/2c {organic} sugar & 1/2c honey

In a bowl mix together: 4c {organic} corn flakes & 1 1/2c almond butter

Combine all ingredients and press into a 13×9 pan.

Melt 1c {dark} chocolate chips & 1c butterscotch chips together. Pour on top layer.

We used holiday sprinkles to make more FuN for this time of year. You can put in fridge until chocolate cools then take out and cut up to serve.

Even a box of bars needs a homemade card to say who it is from so P’Diddy and I made Candy Cane Gift Tags!

Cut a piece of 12×12 cardstock into 4 sized squares. This gives you 4 tags!

Craft your candy cane alternating with red and white paint. We experimented using both our fingers and a brush and they both work great! Depends if the kids like to get dirty or not…lol.

Don’t forget to add your name so they know who the goodies are from and any other message you want to write.

Trim to the size you’d like and tape on top of the RubbermaidAlong. You are ready to go!

Celebrate Thanksgetting with Verizon with Gifts for Everyone!

There are so many things to be thankful for this time of year. An abundance of yummy food, vacation time away from work, visiting with friends and family that you haven’t seen for awhile.

Unforuntately there are a few down sides to these next couple of months too. Busy Stores. Traffic. Delayed Flights. Bad Weather. When you have kids with you, the frustration might be at hair pulling level. Patience is thinned and it’s hard to see why we are thankful.

Verizon knows that “better matters” and so this year they’ve created a new holiday on the day before Thanksgiving. It’s called Thanksgetting and they are celebrating holiday travel by giving ALL consumers, Verizon customers or not, access to movies, music, e-books and more to make it better!

If you’re a Verizon customer it is even better because you’ll get an extra gigabyte of data to use now and another gigabyte for your next bill cycle to get you through the whole holiday season!

Verizon partnered with these top brands and retailers to create the following Thanksgetting gifts for you. This is SO cool I think!

  • E-books, movies and TV shows and music from Amazon
  • A $5 iTunes gift certificate from Apple
  • A 30-day trial of Pandora One for new subscribers
  • $20 off one ride from Lyft on Thanksgetting Day, November 25
  • Complimentary airport and in-flight Wi-Fi from Boingo and Gogo
  • My Rewards+ points from Verizon Fios
  • Verizon customers get something additional – an extra gig of data through the end of their November bill cycle, and the entire next billing cycle as well.

Plus, it’s SO easy to grab them – head to the Thanksgetting website at between now and November 25th and sign up. On November 25th, you’ll have the opportunity to take advantage of the gifts you want.

I’ve never seen anything like this, have you? Thank you Verizon for making our holiday travel a little easier for ALL of us!

Follow along on social media with hashtag #Thanksgetting on Verizon’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube.

Will you be celebrating Thanksgetting for your gifts from Verizon?

Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar Giveaway

This past weekend I’ve been sick. I think it’s this darn cold weather. I can’t stop shivering. While I stayed under my comfy covers in bed, Hubby was in charge of the house. I congratulated him last night for doing a good job. The kids were fed, the dog was walked, and I even heard a vacuum being used!

This morning I come down to this…

He ruined my quesadilla maker! ugh! After a day old the cheese just did not want to come off and I could not soak it because of the cord. Then it dawned on me what I now had in my cleaning closet. All week I’ve been using Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar products. It’s safe! It’s non-toxic! It won’t harm my quesadilla maker and will be able to use food on it again!

I know that a lot of my crunchy mamas have heard me talk about using vinegar before. It’s a great all-natural cleaning agent. Did you know that? I know many people make their own cleaning solutions with vinegar and while I do think making your own is awesome, I’m the type of person who will buy it first especially when it is affordable like Four Monks is.

They are the first company to ever sell it in ready to go spray bottles. And they have a Citrus Mint option which I personally don’t think is much different in smell, but it sounds nice. I will say, if you don’t like the smell of vinegar this product may not be for you, but to me it smells cleeeeean.

Another reason to grab Four Monks is their vinegar has 6% acidity, which is 20% stronger than traditional vinegar, but still gentle on surfaces.

You can seriously clean your whole house with vinegar from floors to kitchens and bathrooms and the time we did have a lady help us clean our house she did only use vinegar and it was her career! Why not when it is Safe, Affordable, and it Works?

Try out Four Monks Cleaning Vinegar. You’ll find it at Walmart Superstores in the vinegar aisle. Here is a $1 off coupon too!
