Family Fun Ziplining near Dallas, Texas


We love making memories in our family and look for ways to do this around Dallas! I posted about a coupon for Trinity Forest Aerial Adventure Park and we went to check it out first hand!

It was SOOO much fun! We had the three hours of zipling and used every minute of the 3 hours! It was so much fun! Our youngest, Maci wasn’t tall enough but she gladly stayed on the ground and cheered us on! Our middle girl, Emma was tall enough but her nerves got the best of her. She made it up and after looking down, lost her lunch…literally. Poor thing! She joined her sister on the ground and cheered us on as well. Our oldest, Chloe, is a lot like me! She was ready to tackle it!

We were first suited up and schooled on how to use the safety clips and such. It took a bit of practice but we caught on and were climbing to our first course within a few minutes! This is not just a zipline, it’s an obstacle course. I went thru the two kid safe ones with Chloe and I have to admit I was challenged. She pushed me to keep going and I cheered her courage. After we were done, the kids offered to take pictures while Steve and I did an adult course together. I was pretty wiped out from the two hours with Chloe, but I was excited to tackle this with Steve.  It was great to push him and him push me. We leaned on each other and cheered each other on! So much fun!

We didn’t get a chance to explore the rest of the park, as we were so wiped clean out! We do plan to go back…maybe in a few months when it’s a little cooler. Here are a few tips for those who decide to go:

  1. Take a water bottle, perhaps one that you can clip to your body. You will get thirsty and there is NO water 50 ft up!
  2. Chew gum or something else that can help you keep your mouth moist.
  3. Wear tennis shoes, work out clothes, and sunscreen.

And last, be prepared to be VERY sore for a few days afterwards!


Easy Cheesy Chicken Bake Recipe (+ Printable Coupons)

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.  #PackedWithSavings #CollectiveBias


School starts in two short weeks and I’ve been playing around with different recipes to change things up a little for my kids! I know once school is going, ball practice, homework and the fall festivities start, we will need quick and easy meals. Because I like to save money, I decided to see what grocery coupons were available to print and planned my meal around that. You can check out tons of Kraft printables by clicking on the banner below!

So I printed my coupons and off to Walmart I went! I picked up a few school supplies (as it’s Tax Free weekend here in Texas) and the ingredients that I would need to make my girls a yummy, hot meal!


They LOVE Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, so I knew that would definitely be in the recipe somewhere…and I would like them to eat more protein, so I decided that adding chicken would be a great way to sneak in some flavor and protein. They love grilled chicken when we marinate it in Kraft Italian Dressing, so we added that for a yummy zesty flavor. Topped with Kraft Natural Sharp Cheese, it was perfect!


Easy Cheesy Chicken Bake Recipe

kraftrecipeFirst Marinate the chicken in Kraft Italian Dressing. Grill and let cool. Cook the Kraft Macaroni and Cheese as instructed on the box. Preheat oven to 350. Simply, chop grilled chicken up and add to Mac’n Cheese. Mix well, pour into a 9×9 dish and top with shredded cheese. Bake just until cheese is melted. Enjoy.

If you have a meal to take to a friend who just had a baby or surgery, this is a great one as they can heat it easily for a yummy kid friendly meal! As another cheat…if you don’t have time to grill, you can pop the chicken w/Kraft Italian dressing in a crockpot on low for 6 hours and then just shred it for the recipe!

Jamming with SOL REPUBLIC Deck Wireless Speaker

Summer is coming to an end and I am soaking up every last minute of it! From dance parties at home to pool parties with friends, we are living it up! To make our time together more memorable, we have been adding music! It’s so much fun to sing and let loose, or relax and chill out! And let’s face it…my iPhone speakers are not loud enough for a full jam fest!

Screen Shot 2014-08-06 at 12.39.27 AM

I was recently sent a SOL REPUBLIC DECK: a wireless speaker, with unprecedented range and versatility to check out. This has been a game changer for us! It’s blue tooth ability allows me to connect with no cords! We take it to the pool, to the park, and I even listen to music in the shower thru it! It’s awesome!

I’ve been using my SOL REPUBLIC headphones for a while now and this is equally as cool! We are planning a birthday party for my youngest and I plan to use this to stream her favorite music! With 25 people, it might be tough to hear the music, but I think that this speaker is up to the challenge. I can be 300 ft away from the speaker and it will continue to stream! This speaker has an outdoor boost on it to allow for maximum use! Here is the other nice thing… upto 5 people can pair and stream thru it.


SOL REPUBLIC is partnering with me to give away one of these awesome speakers to one of my readers! To enter this giveway, simply leave a comment on this blog post telling me where you would use this speaker at! If you want an additional entry, share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or on Instagram. Leave a link in the comments to your post. Giveaway ends on 8/21 at 5PM CST.

Here is a list of other items that are great for your Back to School adventures:
