Holiday Snickerdoodle Recipe

Tis’ the season for Holiday baking! I love when the kids get involved in helping me around the kitchen especially when we bake their favorite Holiday treats. Our favorite that we bake every year is definitely the snickerdoodle cookies.¬†Baking with our Samsung oven always makes the baking process go smoothly. It’s efficient and reliable and always bakes my cookies to perfection. You can shop my oven and many other appliances on their site HERE Happy baking friends!

This post was sponsored by Samsung but all opinions are my own.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Combine 1 1/2 cups white sugar, butter or margarine, vanilla, and eggs. Mix well.

Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda and salt. Blend well. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Combine 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. Roll dough in sugar/cinnamon mixture and place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Immediately remove from cookie sheets.










Nurture Life

DSC06509The kids had the opportunity to try out some meals from Nurture Life. There is so much I can say about these meals. And I am so happy the boys got to try them out.

They are packed with all organic ingredients and taste so delicious. I have always struggled to get my boys to eat their greens and what I love about these meals is that some of the veggies are actually already in the lasagna or the meatloaf which makes it that much easier for them to eat it and not even know. #winwin for me and the boys!


Also with the Holidays around the corner I have been sooo busy lately. So being able to come home after having a long day of driving back and forth, taking the kids to school, picking them up and then rushing to taekwondo practice or tutoring. I really dont find the time to cook a nice meal for them everyday. I can’t tell you how wonderful it is that I have the peace of mind knowing I have a a nutritional and delicious meal waiting for them when I get home. I highly recommend this company’s food subscription. Be sure to visit their page ūüôā¬†

Indoor skydiving for Troy’s 9th Birthday

Troy’s birthday this year was a little more than what we usually do for him. We didn’t do the BIG PARTY this year but he definitely got to do way more this year. His first gift was his puppy which he got super early lol she’s the cutest little Yorkie pup and we couldn’t be happier to welcome her to the family. Her name was orginally Roxy but after having her for a few days we quickly learned that she was more of a Lucy ‚̧

On the day of is birthday we went to an indoor skydiving place and Troy got to experience what it would be like to actually sky dive. I was planning on just having Troy do it but the more we talked about it the more Evan kept asking if he could do it too. I was expecting Evan to say never mind by the time we got him all dressed up and ready to get in the dome. But that wasn’t the case and he was extremely excited. It was probably one of the best experiences for them. They were quite literally on cloud 9 ūüėČ I posted a few photos of their flying adventure ūüôā

Kent Bicycle Review


I am so excited to be working with Kent Bicycle to give you a review on their amazing bikes. Kent Bicycle has been around for centuries and has become one of the largest mass bicycle companies in the US. You can purchase their bikes through Target, Walmart and Amazon.



We had the opportunity to try out 2 different bikes. The BCA Phase 1 bike for my older son who is 8 and also the Kent Pro 16 bike for my younger son who is going to be 4. Both bikes were incredibly made and very unique.


My older son has been trying to do some tricks on his bike. He has already¬†had a few spills but it just motivates him more. He’s been watching all kinds of youtube videos since he got the bike and is already learning so much. He is convinced that he can ride his bike on a mountain like this guy…¬† talk about being brave and fearless LOL I guess he can attempt something like this in a few years… or never! Crazy kid.


Evan still is trying to get the hang of it but I know he will get it in no time. I would love to mention I love that his bike is the bright yellow! I mean how convenient is that for a younger child’s bike especially in the evening and when they are still learning. It’s nothing I ever thought about but I have to say the bright yellow just really stands out.


Thank you again so much Kent Bicycles
