It’s almost fall, and with school in session I am busier than normal, just like most moms are at this time of year.  While I may be busy, I always make dinner a priority.  The good news is that dinner doesn’t have to be stressful, and using your crock pot can make life simple.  With colder weather hitting us soon, I thought I would do a roundup of some of my favorite soups with these 25 Slow Cooker Soup Recipes. I love using my slow cooker.  In fact, I bet my slow cooker is used at least twice a week.

If you are a follower on my Instagram page, you have probably seen quite a few pictures of this cake! Having a little guy in the house turn six years old, and a LOVER of Legos had me thinking that I needed to make him a Lego cake.  I immediately ran over to Pinterest. It was a fun search, but there was nothing that really hit what I was wanting to create. I decided to take some bits and pieces from different cake ideas and with the help of my mom, we came up with this fabulous DIY Lego Cake.

Say Cheese Counting Printable #HorizonB2S
I am so excited to share with you a Pre K Set of Counting Printables and share the healthy benefits of Horizon Organic products. Thank you to Horizon Organic for making this possible. This is my youngest daughter’s first year if school, EVER. In fact, as I am writing this, I am anxiously awaiting to hear how her very first day of Pre K 3 has been. Her starting school is one of the main reasons behind me wanting to do this post for the Say Cheese Pre K Counting Printables. The other is to teach her healthy snack choices.

Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Framed 3D Door Decor
I am part of the Make It Fun Team® with FloraCraft® and am super excited they helped make this post possible today.  This past week it was the awesome people at FloraCraft® who did the job of making my toddler hysterically silly.  When I received this months box for my craft challenge, I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  I let my daughter open the box, and she produced a scary-ish foam head and started chasing people around the house with it. I hope these Haunted Mansion Inspired Halloween Frames induce the same amount of hysterical pleasure that the foam head

Back to School Mason Jar Craft Teacher Gift Idea #inspirestudents #teacherschangelives #pmedia #ad
This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Office Depot, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #inspirestudents This year my youngest is going to be going to school for the first time.  She has a curriculum to follow, verses to memorize, and I am very excited about her new adventure.

Addy Ask Away Friday
It’s been a while since I have done an Ask Away Friday, and I guess you could technically say I am not actually doing this Ask Away Friday.  Why?  Well, I am asking the questions, but this is The Little People Version.  Tamara from (Tamara Like Camera) and myself have decided to let the little one’s in on the fun. Today it’s us, sitting back, and letting Scarlet and Addy ask each other the questions. Here’s the thing. If you have popped over here from Tamara, you are probably going to notice the difference in pictures. Yep. She is a
