Caramel Apple Poke Cake {recipe}

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies®. As always, all opinions are my own.

Hello! How are you? As you know I have 5 kiddos, & my kiddos love to get in the kitchen & cook. This is also known as time to make a big mess in the kitchen, too! September 13th was Kids Take Over the Kitchen Day, so we decided to celebrate! Yay! My youngest daughter loves to bake. She was excited to make a cake all by herself. Annnnd since it is fall she decided to combine two favorite flavors ~ caramel & apple. Keep reading as I share her Caramel Apple Poke Cake recipe. Yum! Let’s get started! :)

Making Time for Family Dinner

I've partnered with Idahoan on this sponsored post and all opinions stated are my own. #SignatureRussets

Good morning! Let’s talk family tradition. :) We always have a big Sunday dinner with all the fixings' right after church. Usually we have a main dish like roast or chicken, rolls that have been rising on the stove & several side dishes to go along with that. Unfortunately, week days don’t always leave as much time to cook a big family dinner, but we do like to carry on the tradition of eating dinner together as a family. That’s why I love using a few short cuts (like Idahoan Signature Russets Mashed Potatoes) to make quick & delicious weekday meals. Idahoan potatoes help make every meal taste like Sunday. In addition to letting you know about these new potatoes from Idahoan, I’ll be sharing some tips on Making Time for Family Dinner. Let’s get started!

12+ Ways to Add Texture to Your Home

This post has been compensated by Frette.com. All opinions are mine alone.

Hello! Good morning! I’m loving the industrial farmhouse look that is so popular right now. I really love all the neutral colors that accompany it, too. My only reservation about this trend is that if you’re not careful everything can kind of blend together & become a little bit boring. Blah! We don’t want that! ha! One way to get around that & still keep that nice clean, soothing color pallet is to add texture to your home! Texture makes it interesting & gives your home tons of visual appeal.  Today I’d love to share 12+ Ways to Add Texture to Your Home. Let’s get started!

Hello! Are you ready for some football? Eek! I am! ha! This time of year is my favorite! It’s fall, the weather is cooling off (finally) & every Friday night you can find my entire family at the high school football game! Go Hawks! Our whole town is pumped for football season. Last year we made it to the state semi-finals. Annnnd we are hoping to go all the way this year. My 13 year old son plays on the 8th & 9th grade JV team & my daughter is in the high school marching band. So yep, football season is a family affair around our house. Annnnnd to keep us all hydrated at the games & after practices we always have plenty of POWERADE stocked in the fridge & in my game bag. I also have my bag packed with my camera, snacks & of course, pom poms to help cheer on the team. Today I am excited to share how I made these DIY Pom Poms that are perfect for the sideline, at a football themed party or at home when you are cheering on your favorite team. Let’s get started! :)

Good morning! I hope you all had an awesome Labor Day weekend! Ours was fabulous! Today, September 6th, we have another holiday to celebrate ~ National Teddy Bear Day. It might be slightly less known as Labor Day, but it is definitely the cutest holiday by far! ha! This makes September a very special month for Snuggle®, since their mascot is a very snuggly & cute bear! You’ve seen him, right? For the second year in a row, Snuggle® is hosting a special #ShareABear campaign to help make the world a sweeter place, one cute teddy bear at a time. Snuggle® plans to donate 5,000 bears to kiddos in need this year. Receiving a thoughtful gift can make such a huge difference to a child ~ especially a teddy bear. You can help celebrate by sharing your favorite teddy bears & teddy bear stories on social media using the hashtag #ShareaBear. I’m excited to celebrate & share my favorite teddy bear story today, & I’m also sharing this cute National Teddy Bear Day Craft with you. Let’s get started!
