Skinny Oat & Fruit Mug Muffin Recipe

Breakfast can be a little crazy around my household.  In the mornings we are up and running, getting ready for school, packing lunches and shoveling in breakfast.  I'm sure you have heard how breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day.  So although I might not always have the time to cook a big, healthy breakfast; I DO have easy recipes that are healthy and delicious.  One of my favorites is this mug muffin recipe.  I love me some mug recipes and have even shared a Healthy Chocolate Mug Cake Recipe in the past.  Well, this Skinny Oat & Fruit Mug Muffin has been a regular addition to our breakfast time meals.

Jif To Go® Dippers: Share How You #GetGoing for a Chance To Win $1000

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

When I am craving a snack, I try to reach for something that will not only fuel my body but is also high in protein, will satisfy my cravings and keep me feeling full longer.  Many of these times, I reach for peanut butter because not only does it fulfill these "snack requirements", it is also delicious!  Well, guess what?  My favorite snack just got even better since Jif released it's new product Jif To Go® Dippers!

Conversations With Kids: What Would You Do If You Had A Time Machine?

Now that my kids are getting older, they are at that age where I am able to have deeper conversations with them.  It's fun!  Sometimes I am even amazed by some of the things they think and ask.  Don't get me wrong, there are still plenty of times where I ask them a question and they respond with some ridiculousness.  "Zach, what did you have for lunch at school today?"  "Diarrhea on a stick!"  Sure I laugh, maybe this is why he continues with the ridiculousness, but I also realize one day I will miss those answers.
Then there are those times his maturity peeps through.  When I can really tell he is getting bigger, older and forming complex thoughts.

Disney is providing me with an all expense paid trip to L.A. to attend the #VeryBadDayEvent and #DisneyInHomeEvent in exchange for my coverage.  No other compensation is given and all opinions in my posts are 100% my own.  Disclosure Policy.

It still seems a bit surreal, that evening I opened my email and saw the caption "You're Invited..."  INVITED?  ME??? When I saw what followed the "You're Invited", Sleeping Beauty/Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day Blogger Event, I about jumped out of my pajamas!  Sorry, I don't mean to give you a visual but you have to realize how excited I am about this event.  It is a dream come true!!  When I began to read the details, I seriously began to cry some happy tears.

Slugtera Return of the Elementals Review & Games: Released on DVD September 16th

I receive a free copy of this DVD for my opinions.

Slugtera Return of the Elementals was released on DVD September 16th.  I knew I had to get this for the kids because they are all about "elemental types."  They are big collectors of Pokemon cards and are always playing games where one is a "fire type" or "water type" and this movie sounded right up their alley.  After watching the movie, they told me it was like Pokemon but WAY better with Slugs.  I was actually surprised how often they watched this movie, especially my 6 year old daughter, it was on repeat in their DVD player for weeks!
