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!

Captain No Beard!

Lately our daughter has been very head-strong and doesn’t understand why she isn’t right or has to sit in time out or etc. Recently we recieved this wonderful book called Being a Captain is Hard Work. This is a super cute read. The illustrations are great and I love the moral of the story in this book. Captian No Beard must learn the hard lesson that sometimes you are not always right. Sometimes you need to admit when you are wrong and trust in others. Most kids need to learn this important lesson. My daughter included.
It also includes a wonderful cloud key at the end of the book to help understand different types of clouds and the weather that is usually accompanied by them. A little longer than most children's books I’ve seen but definitely engaging to keep my daughter entertained. Another thing that I really enjoy is that it promotes imagination and creativity by showing that these were just regular kids exploring within their own bedroom. In all, my daughter loves it and it is one that we continue to reach for over and over. I received this book for free or at a discount in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion.

Molten Cinnamon Rolls!

I think I've mentioned in the past about how much we love making random Tasty videos that we find on facebook. We are constantly sharing new ones so we don't lose them. Recently we tried out ones called Molten Cinnamon Rolls. They were absolutely delicious and I highly recommend them. You can't eat just one!

- 2 packs of cinnamon roll dough with icing
- 8 ounces of cream cheese
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 cup milk

To make:
1) Mix together cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla
2) Add milk and stir till free of lumps
3) Freeze for 1 hour (should be harder but not frozen)
4) Preheat the oven to 400 degrees
5) Flatten cinnamon roll into a disc
6) Spoon out some of cream cheese mixture onto disc
7) Place another flattened roll on top and tuck edges under to keep them together
8) Place sealed ball upside down in pan (I used a pie pan)
9) Bake for 20-25 minutes
10) Drizzle reserved icing on top of rolls and serve!

Loving these headphones!

We got these TweetTech headphones for my husband for his birthday (SHHH!!!) and he absolutely loves them! The have a built in speaker and are flexible and comfortable. They came in a nice box and have a very comfortable fit. They stay charged for quite a while (about 7 hours or so) and they have various size ear buds. Definitely worth the price and comes with a nice velvet bag. They are perfect for our bike rides and walks!

We're finally getting some exercise!

This summer we have really been trying to make the time to spend time as a family and work out in the process. We have been biking a ton more and I’ve discovered that I haven’t really had any comfortable clothing to bike in. I found some Prolific Health yoga pants and capris on amazon and seriously these yoga pants are great.

I love the colors and pattern in them. The colors are bright and fun and the quality of the fabric is awesome as well. The fabric is thick and durable as well as being moveable and breathable. All very important qualities for yoga or working out. The fit is a tad on the smaller size so I would size up if I were you. They have a very high waistband which is great for tummy control or you can also roll it over for comfort. I’m looking forward to using these capris this summer while we’re biking and walking.
