Balloon Monsoon and Refill Kit *Review*

We love being outdoors (more so when there's water involved, especially during the hot summer months). Something fun to do...water balloons!
Our kids love anything water related, so this was right up their alley.


The kit comes with 4 pre-filled balloon wands, with a total of 148 balloons!! Throwing 148 balloons at each other sounds like so much fun, right?
What do you have to do to fill the wands up? You hook the round green end to your water hose, turn it on and watch them fill up!

As long as you securely connect the wand and the hose, you should not have any problems with leaking. Once they get to normal size, cut the water off and gently shake them and they will fall right off and seal themselves. So much easier and doesn't take a lot of time; the fun can begin right away!
The only problem I had with these, they were not very easy to pop. When we threw them at each other, they wouldn't pop, but as soon as they hit the ground...POP!


The refill kit comes with 500 balloons and 500 resealable black rings. You place the balloon on one of the sticks on the wand. Then you take one of the black rings and place it down over the balloon til you reach the end of the balloon. It is time consuming but fairly easy to do.

If you would like to buy this and have lots of fun with your kids or even grandchildren, you can find the items below:

Hope you enjoy them as much as we did!

McCormick Skillet Sauces

I got a my party pack from House Party in the mail and decided to try the Skillet Sauce that was included- Sesame Chicken Stir Fry. All you need to add is chicken and vegetables.

Ingredients needed:

McCormick Skillet Sauces- Sesame Chicken Stir Fry
1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breasts; cut into strips
1 tbsp. vegetable oil
4 cups, cut up vegetables for stir fry


Heat the oil in the skillet on high heat. Add your chicken (we did chicken chunks not strips). Cook and stir for 5 minutes. If you need more than this will prepare, you can do 2 pounds of chicken (which is what I did)

Add your vegetables. We chose corn and peas. Cook and stir on medium-high heat for 3 minutes until tender and crisp and chicken is cooked through. 

Stir in the sauce. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 1 minute or until heated through.
Serve with cooked rice if you prefer. I used the boil in a bag rice (2 of them). Takes about 10 minutes for the rice to get done.
You can either combine together or put the chicken and veggies on top of the rice.

If you want to add anything else to this at the end, you can. My husband added his homemade BBQ sauce.

If you wish to join House Party and see about getting a Party Pack for yourself, click the link below. Unfortunately this McCormick one is passed, but they have many. Some you may qualify for and others you may not.

Tuggs Towel Clip *Review*

Everyone has towels they take the beach or even the pool. You always throw them over the chairs and set on top of the towels, especially when it's hot or even to help dry off. And every time you do, it falls off the back of the chair.

Here's your solution:
Tuggs Towel Clip

When you are at the beach or get home from the pool, you take off your wet bathing suit. You either throw it over the side of the tub or over the shower curtain rod. If you are at the beach, you throw it outside on a chair or maybe the balcony, if you have one. It takes awhile to get completely dry, especially both sides of the clothing.

Here's your solution:
Tuggs Towel Clip

Say you printed out a few recipes you would like to try. I still print stuff from the computer instead of using my phone. Counter will be full of the ingredients and pots and pans you may be using. Your hands get dirty and in turn your recipe paper will get dirty.

Here's your solution:
Tuggs Towel Clip

See where I'm going with this?
Tuggs Towel Clip can be your solution to pretty much anything. Not only is it adorable with the alligator on it, but it's durable and reliable. You do have to press in the middle rather hard to get the mouth of the clips to open, but it works wonderful. 

If you would like one for yourself or maybe family and friends want one,

6 piece Bakeware Set *Review*

Our son, Aden, turned 10 on August 19th.  Every year we make a cake for the kids birthdays. We went to Dollar Tree and he picked out what kind of cake he wanted. Thankfully I received my new bakeware set in the mail the day before, so I get to try them out.

It's a 6 piece bakeware set, heavy gauge and non stick.

It came with the following:
One 6 cup muffin pan (can also be used for cupcakes!)
One loaf pan (8.5" x 4.5) 
One cookie sheet (14.5" x 10", can also be used for biscuits!)
One round cake pan (8.5'')
One square pan (9'' x 9'')
One deep pie pan (9'') 

They are non-stick inside and out. It heats evenly without hot spots. This is a great set for people beginning to get into baking (like myself!). They are simple to use and very easy to clean! 

We proceeded to make a cake using the round cake pan.

We followed the step by step directions on the cake box. This particular cake came with 2 mixes, one red velvet and one blue velvet. I had an extra round cake pan to use. It was simple and not too complicated to make. 

We let the cake cool while we ran some errands. My husband came home and worked his magic, like he always does. He iced it with the Vanilla Marshmallow Icing. 

The extra cake you see in the corner was cut from the top of the cakes to make them more flat, so they fit well together. He used the extra cake leftover, put it in the blender and made blue and red crumbs which we used to top the cake with as well as the sides. 

It turned out great, the kids enjoyed eating it and of course there's leftovers! I definitely recommend this bakeware set. Great for beginners. I love that it's non-stick and really easy to clean!

You can find this bakeware set on

Silicone Baking Mat and Baking Cups *Review*

I found my new favorite kitchen item!

This is my first time using silicone baking cups and mats. I usually use the paper baking cups, just use them and throw them away. No more paper baking cups for me (unless I'm baking for school).

I definitely want more of these!

I made chocolate chip muffins AND apple cinnamon muffins this morning using the baking cups. I made chocolate chip cookies using the baking mat. It all turned out fantastic!

The muffins came out with so much ease! No part of the muffins left behind. Rinse them with warm water and wipe them clean. They are great for an occasion! Super fun and absolutely LOVE the colors. It makes kids want to bake more too! 

The cookies slid right off the mat. Warm water and wipe it down, all clean! Baking with these items are such a breeze and no huge mess to clean up either! 

The ones I am using are from Heart of Home Kitchenware, bought through Amazon. It comes with 2 silicone baking mats, 12 silicone baking cups, an e-book full of recipes and even a storage box (what they come packaged in).

If you would like to purchase, here is where you can find them:

3D Robotics Solo Drone at Best Buy

Who is ready for a new way to take pictures and videos??

3D Robotics Solo Drone is what I'm talking about!

Best Buy is the destination for drones, including the new Solo™ by 3DR.  Now is the time to explore for Father’s Day.

Solo, the Smart Drone, arrived in over 400 Best Buy stores on June 8, just in time for Father’s Day. It’s the first-ever drone powered by two integrated Linux computers, making capturing the perfect shot easy for anyone. The Solo retails for $999.

Solo can define its own flight, freeing users to focus on getting the shot. This intelligent drone is also the first to support full control of GoPro® cameras and deliver live HD video either wirelessly to your mobile device or through the controller’s HDMI port for live broadcasts.

Try out these Smart Shot Modes for the best quality pictures:

Cablecam: Lock Solo on virtual cable between any two points in space. Using only one stick on the controller, you can move the Solo up and down the cable. Solo can even memorize the first and last frames and pan the camera between them.

Orbit:  Solo can automatically circle a subject that you choose, keeping the camera pointed inward to capture an iconic wraparound shot. This seems like it would turn out an amazing picture.

Selfie: With just one touch, Solo will fly up and away, keeping the camera centered on you, so scenery around you expands in a dramatic aerial pullout shot.

Follow Me: You can go completely hands-free with Solo! It will follow you around, staying focused on you to capture your every move.

What makes it so smart you ask?

Solo runs two 1GHz computers, one in the drone itself and the other in the controller- connected via a very powerful dedicated WiFi signal.  Solo is also an all-in-one drone that offers live streaming of HD video from your GoPro directly to your mobile device! How cool is that!

The video game style design of the controller breaks from the clunky and complicated RC feel and keeping with the video game theme, the controller also has a pause button so you stop the Solo in mid-flight.

You can also download a full featured app for free to your iOS or Android mobile device. It lets you view live as well as a satellite view. 

Take a look at this great offer available right now:

- Get a FREE Solo Smart Battery (Reg. Price: $149.99) when you purchase the 3DR Solo Drone (Sku: 5354101). Valid 6/7-7/11 at Best Buy.

 Disclaimer: Offer valid with purchase of the 3DR Solo Drone SKU: 5351035
