Meals Delivered to My Door-What’s Not to Love

schwans-home-service-logoI have said before in the last few months my life has been so busy! I really try to make home made from scratch food for my family. Sometimes, you just have to release things that cause stress and no longer is the best way to use your time! I have came to that point in life! I recently ordered from Schwan’s Food Service, not only do they have a great variety of food to chose from it is delivered to my door at no extra charge!

I decided to start with a small order. I ordered two items.

55358LGBagel dogs with Cheese. You get 8 of these hot dogs for $13.48. We paired the bagel dogs with cheese and French fries for a dinner and movie night. I was able to relax with my family and enjoy the movie, instead of being stuck in the kitchen during the entire movie. I will be ordering these again soon!59468LGThe second thing we ordered was the Italian Style Cheese Stuffed Chicken Breast. I paired this with roasted red skinned potatoes and a salad. You get 4 servings for $12.99. We loved these! The only compliant was there was not enough for seconds. I will be ordering these again soon also.

Schwan’s Food service, great food, decent price, delivered to my door.

I was provided sample product to facilitate the review. All opinions are 100% mine. I think of my reader’s as friends and only recommend products I personally enjoy!

Purex Crystals Aromatherapy Review


Purex Crystals Aromatherapy is more than an in-wash scent booster – it’s a way to express yourself and discover new joys in life. Floral and citrus scents have been blended with aromatherapy essential oils to infuse your clothing with indulgent and refreshing aromas that revitalize your spirit.

The new scents are:
Well Being brightens any mood with the happy fragrance of fresh blossoms
Energy helps you tackle any day with the stimulating power of citrus
Serenity keeps you calm all day long with the gentle scent of water-lilies

Add Purex Crystals Aromatherapy into your washer’s tub (top, front-loading, or HE) at the start of the wash to supplement your laundry detergent. This allows the crystals to permeate your clothing with a personal expressiveness that lasts for weeks, not days.

I love fresh smelling laundry so I LOVE these new scents of Purex Crystals. The fresh scent does last longer then any other fragrance for the laundry. I will continue to purchase this product.

Thanks to Purex for providing product for me to sample for my review.

BYGO Pound of Chocolate Code



Time was when Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

“It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe,” Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. “I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea.'”

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

…In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.

“It was a difficult decision, especially for George,” Mrs. Cavanaugh said. “He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh’s Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy – and could compete with – those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates.”

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh’s candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence….

Video Watching

As you all know I am the mom of two great young men, I also wear many hats outside of our home. I have a few part time jobs. I do really enjoy them all but some times I do feel pulled from my main job of mother lately. But this past week Noah was sick and stayed home from school, which means I stayed home also. I could have seen it as a hassle, yanno no work no pay. But instead, I seen it as an opportunity to stop all of the calls from outside my home that needed attention and took time to do the most important job I have: to be Noah’s mother.

Noah was ill but nothing life threatening, after we made it to the doctor’s office and got some good medicine he was on the road to recovery, We had a boat load of time to cuddle, color (which he has told me he has grown too old for, but I still love to color!) We also watched a lot of tv! But also a cute movie named Thunder and the House of Magic. What a cute movie!


THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC comes to DVD and 3D Blu-ray September 30th!  This family movie is directed by renowned 3D filmmakers Ben Stassen (Fly Me to the MoonSammy’s AdventuresEscape from Paradise) and Jeremie Degruson (A Turtle’s TaleSammy’s Adventure), with original music by Ramin Djawadi (Game of Thrones). The film also features music by Selena Gomez.
HUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a whimsical animated family adventure, bringing to life a unique story with a great sense of humor, positive values and universal appeal.  Brimming with spectacular animation and endearing characters, this internationally acclaimed motion picture delivers a fun and captivating movie experience for the entire family.

The film tells the story of Thunder, an abandoned young cat who stumbles into a magical old mansion operated by a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos. Owned by a retired magician, the house is occupied by an assortment of his wacky assistants who don’t all welcome the new houseguest. But when the magician lands in the hospital and his scheming nephew puts the mansion up for sale, our young hero and his new friends join forces to save their magical home.
Noah and I loved this movie and he has watched it a few times since. Make sure you check it out.

VBS at our church

I am the craft lady usually in any volunteering programs I am involved with and this includes VBS at our church. I have some fun helping the kids do the crafts each year but this year I got to pick the crafts! I was like a child in a candy store. My candy store of choice is Oriental Trading.com.otc-logo

Anytime I need a craft project or inspiration I got to the website and start browsing. I can always find something I want to order or inspiration on an idea that I already had but needed help getting on to paper.

I made a list once and changed it about 100 times after the original list.

But here are a few photos of the projects from Oriental trading.com

phone 168 phone 164 phone 163 phone 154I like to share my love of the Lord as well to spread my passion for crafting.
