Are you ready for some football? We are in our house! My hubby is a Cowboys fan, so we decided to throw a game day party to get in the spirit. They are currently one and one, and need us to cheer them on to more victories!

Game day food is fun to make, and doesn’t have to take a lot of time. I grabbed the crockpot to make yummy Pepsi pulled pork sandwiches. (That recipe is coming on the blog soon!)

I ran to Family Dollar and grabbed all of the essentials… chips, dips, paper products and more. We were set! Snacks to enjoy during the game and pulled pork sandwiches at half time! Shop your local Family Dollar for quick party supplies and eats.

Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine now on DVD

4D04D03A-40D4-414F-9B79-B15FDE6FDE2C
We have been huge Doc McStuffins fans for a while now! We had a full circle moment while watching the new Doc McStuffins: School of Medicine this week. In this series of shows, Doc tackles several things that are worrisome for kids. She plays an optometrist, helping her stuffed owl toy, Professor Hoostburgh, to see clearly again. She also plays as a dentist, and last as a radiologist, taking an inside look at Daisy’s arm after a Roller Disco fall.

Maci, my 6 yr old has a broken leg. When we went to get her leg x-rayed, she freaked out. She didn’t know what they were going to do and the fact that they wouldn’t let me sit with her, scared her even more. If she would have seen this Doc McStuffins DVD before going, she wouldn’t have been so scared!

This one ends with Doc spraining her own ankle. How will it end? Who will take care of Doc? You will have to watch to find out.

You can order Doc Mcstuffins: School of Medicine for just $12.96 right now on Amazon! This DVD runs 120 minutes.

Kroger sales general admission tickets for $15.50, however there are no senior or children discounts.

Spoiling our Teachers with Effortless Meals at Walmart

*I have partnered with Coca-Cola to tell you more about a stress free meal deal for your family. I received giftcards to review these meal options and to have fun with my family…out of the kitchen.  All opinions are my own and are honest.

effortLess

Going back to school to crazy for all but extra crazy for teachers! This year we are spoiling our teachers by swinging by Walmart to pick up Coca-Cola effortless meal bundles. We are picking up for both our teachers….and ourselves! Here is the poem that we created and gave our teachers:

backtoschool

These awesome Effortless Meals lets moms spend less time working in the kitchen and more time connecting with their kids, while still providing a delicious meal that the whole family will love. As a mom, I know my least favorite time of the day is about 4:PM. My kids start asking about dinner and I just want to spend time with my kids, enjoying the afternoon. The thought of cooking just isn’t on my radar.

In fact, as I look at our schedule this week, we have something going on EVERY night! Soccer practice, church, basketball, and more. With so much on our schedule, it’s hard to sneak in time to create a meal for our family to share!  These Effortless Meals are less then $10 and I found coupons hanging on the Coca-Cola to save $1 off!

Here is what we will be enjoying tonight! Coca-Cola, Pizza, and I’ll add a salad! It’s perfect for a quick and easy meal on a busy day!

Disney’s Frozen Birthday Party Fun

We were sent a few Frozen themed items for the purposes of this review. 

frozen

You are not surprised to read that we had a Frozen party today for my (almost) 6 yr old! Frozen has been a very  popular party choice for the past year and it’s still the first choice of many. With it being so popular, it can be difficult to find party supplies. I am fairly creative and can accent with simple colors and basic items. The plates and napkins are hard to find instore….so I went to my favorite online party supplier, Oriental Trading and they had plenty and it was IN STOCK! They have free shipping often and I was able to score all that I needed for our party! Their prices are great and I love that they offer such a huge variety of options.

I also got the fun blue rock candy and pink striped straws from Oriental Trading. Check out their whole line of Frozen items!

Right now you can get FREE shipping on orders of $39 or more when you use coupon code: CY1480014

*If you are near North Dallas and want the most delicious cake pops around, reach out to Megan at BlackFlour. Those pictured above are from her amazing bakery! She is super talented and make almost anything!
