The perfect diaper bag backpack!

Hello blog! I am so excited to be back! In the time I have been away we have added a new bundle of joy to the family! He is a happy little baby and we just went on a trip with him. I needed to find a good diaper bag that would be best for adventuring on our trip and I found the perfect one! It is the aisawate Baby Diaper Bag Backpack.

I love bags with a lot of pockets and spots and this one has spots for everything you would need. We went to a major league baseball game and it held everything we needed including:
- food & spoons
- sunscreen
- diapers
- change of clothes for our son and daughter
- camera
- a TON more



This is just a picture of the front pocket! There are like 4 other pockets as well! I absolutely love it and I plan on using it for years to come, even when we don't have a baby baby anymore. There are pockets that are designed to keep bottles in that are lined. and there are a few hidden pockets as well which I love to keep cards, keys, and etc in!

Laser Light Display!

Happy almost New Year!!

If you know us you know that we absolutely LOVE our Christmas lights. We go all out every year...it runs in the family! We are slowly growing our light stash and recently got this Laser Christmas Light Display. It is awesome. I couldn't get any great pics of it due to all the snow we got recently but here are some from inside before we put it out and one from Amazon.



We still use our normal Christmas lights and add this as an extra but they would also work great if you wanted to ditch the traditional lights all together. The lights are a stationary blue and green and the colors are very vibrant.



It comes with a sturdy steak to keep it from moving in the ground. They have a very good coverage range and even has a built in timer so that they will automatically turn off after 6 hours. These have been great for us so far and I can't wait to see what kind of things we do with them in the coming years.

Super fun bike lights!

My daughter loves riding her bike almost as much as my husband does. I couldn't say no when I found this 5 piece set of spoke lights from Uelfbaby! The price is amazing and I ordered through prime so they arrived super quick and with no issues!



I love that you can customize the colors. My daughter loves the color blue so she loves that she can light up her bike. She can't go too fast just yet and we only let her ride in the driveway at night but I love that this is something that can grow with her. We also like to hook them up to the wheels on the bike trailer.



Not only does it make it super easy to see at night but they also make it super fun as well! They are really fun on our evening walks and rides. I love how easy they are to use, how secure they are, and the waterproof construction. Definitely a must for bike riders, young and old alike!

Cookies and Milk Popsicles!

I have found a new favorite frozen treat. Cookies and milk pops! I recently got this amazing popsicle kit from Lebice and it's love. The price is fantastic for the quality. It comes with instructions and is very easy to use. On to the recipe!

Ingredients:
- 2 cups heavy cream
- 1/3 c. sweetened condensed milk
- chocolate chip cookies (chips ahoy works well because of the consistency and size)

Directions:
1) Put 2 cookies into each popsicle mold
2) whisk together milk and cream until frothy
3) Pour mixture over cookies and place popsicle sticks into place
4) Freeze until firm (about 5 hours or overnight)
5) Enjoy!

To get the popsicles out of the mold just run them under some warm water for a few seconds and it should pop right out. There are so many uses for these including fruit popsicles too! They are perfect for a hot summer day and I'm looking forward to a lot more homemade popsicle creations!

Zucchini Parmesan Crisps!

I know it's been a while but we are having so much fun this summer! We went to the market a few days ago and ended up with some zucchini and I just wanted to share an awesome recipe I found with you guys! It's for Zucchini Parmesan Crisps! The recipe was found here.

Ingredients:
- About 2 medium size zucchini
- 2 or more eggs
- 1/2 cup flour
- 1 cup panko
- 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- about 1/2 cup of vegetable oil (I used olive oil)

Directions:
1) Start by cutting your zucchini into slices
2) Put flour in a bowl, eggs in another bowl, and mix cheese and panko in another bowl
3) Heat oil in pan over medium heat
4) Dip zucchini in flour, then egg, then panko mixture
5) Cook in oil for about a minute on each side until crispy
6) Place on paper towel lined plate
7) Serve while hot and Enjoy!

I also used some Parmesan Italian dressing as a dip and it was delicious! You could also probably add some garlic powder into the panko to add some extra flavoring. I hope you enjoy these crisps as much as I did. What have you made recently??

ThinkFun...always thinking, always fun!

My daughter is fascinated with science and electricity so I knew she would love this new game from ThinkFun called Circuit Maze Board Game.

This is a really fun and challenging game! ThinkFun always has such fun and exciting games that keep your mind working and are super engaging. I love it. There are pieces in the game that you must arrange in order to create a working circuit to make different lights light up. Although my daughter is still a bit young for the game portion of this I really enjoy working with her and experimenting different things to get the circuit to work. Very educational and fun!

I received this product for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.
