Monday Madness! PersonaliTy Children's Clothes

Have you ever met a person that has gone above and beyond to make sure you're satisfied? You know shopping on etsy is different than shopping in a store because you never really meet the person you are shopping from. So sometimes, there is not enough contact to even notice the level of customer service. With Personality Children's Clothes, I was taken aback at what an amazing customer service I was working with. She was incredibly sweet and went above and beyond all my expectations to make sure I was satisfied with the Jon Jon I got. Not only was I impressed with her customer service skills, but also her product is AMAZING! The Jon Jon is beautifully made. I cannot wait for baby boy to wear it this summer!!! check out all her cute items here. She can personalize it too which I absolutely love!

Personalized Baby Bloomers Gift Set - $20
Geaux Tigers Jumper perfect for your LSU fan - $25

YUMMY taco soup

Do you have a recipe that you enjoy making and you family loves to eat?

My husband LOVES the taco soup. It is so easy to make and super yummy.

I thought I'd share the recipe with you:

- ground beef
- 1 can Rotel
- 1 can diced tomato
- 1 can corn
- 1 can drained beans (I use black)
- 1 packet of Ranch powder

brown ground beef and throw everythin g in crockpot for a few hours. I usually cook it in there for about 4 hours.
Then it's ready! I put shredded cheese and sour cream in mine. I also enjoy tortilla chips with it.

Let me know if you try it!!!

Pillow Pet

My oldest had been asking me for a Pillow Pet for a while. So I finally got him one. He wanted the monkey. So of course baby boy needed his own too! So I got him the frog. Aren't they cute? I figured they would be great for when we go on long car rides or vacations. Little Man has been sleeping with his monkey. He loves it. When he opened the bag, he was super excited! He kept thanking us which makes it even more fun when buying him things. These were their Valentine's Day presents.

Car Show

This past weekend we had a car show and we decided to take the kids. Little Man LOVES cars and he had a blast. He loves sports cars. He sat in several and loved every minute of it! It was such a great weekend. Hubby's brother came along with us too. Afterwards we had lunch and then took little man to Toys R Us. We ended up buying him the die cast model of the Stingray (the car on the picture above). He loved it! I also got baby boy some sippy cups. Can't believe he is already old enough for those. It was a beautiful weekend and we had an absolute blast spending time together. We love family days!!!

Ready for Valentine's Day!

I am all ready for Valentine's Day. I got all the treats for little man's school, I got the teachers a small gift. I got all my cards for my boys. I made the cards little man will hand out with the treat bags to his classmates. I bought the boys a present - they each get a pillow pet. Little man has been dying for one, so I figured they each get one. :)
I got my man a little something. Nothing major.
On Monday I will make all 3 boys a special dinner - not sure what though. Something with mac and cheese since that's little man's favorite.
How about you? What are you guys up to for Valentine's Day?

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

Use Protection

You hear it all the time - Always Use Protection! Well, sometimes you think it's ok to go just one time without it. But all it takes is that one time....
This past weekend I learned a hard lesson about what can happen when not using protection. I got a NASTY virus. that sucker got in there and did not want to come out. Yep, so I had to call an expert - luckly he is also my husband so he didn't charge much.

My little laptop got a Trojan virus - my antivirus software exprired and I didn't realize it. What did you think I was talking about??? lol
In all seriousness, my poor hubby had a hard time cleaning out my computer. It's ok now.
But while trying to deal with these issues, people, about 3 different people kept telling me that I needed a Mac. 0_0 Seriously??? Wanna buy me one?

To me those things are entirely overpriced for no reason.

We have always had PCs and never had issues. This was entirely my fault. I do not care for Macs - but to each his own.
How about you? Are you a Mac or a PC?

Superbowl Sunday

Well, neither one of our teams made it this year. :/ Bummer.

Oh well. I am sure my hubby will be watching the game. I will sit and watch it with him because I do enjoy those commercials.

Are you going to be watching it? Who will you be cheering for?

Or are you watching it for the commercials?

I was listening to the radio and they were saying to keep an eye for the Skechers commercial. So lets see how that one turns out! :)

Holidays in School

This is the first year my son is in school. Even though he is part time, the always do special parties at school for holidays. For their fall festival (Halloween) I made little baggies with candy for the kids and teacher. For Chrismas I made little baggies with candy and an ornament for the kids and I bought the teachers (he has 2) a small gift. So with Valentine's Day coming up, I already got all that I need to make baggies for the kids. However I am having a hard time figuring out what to get the teachers. I thought about those heart shaped boxes of chocolate. But the nice ones are so expensive and he has 2 teachers. I found a box with Reese's for $5 which would be $10 and I didn't think that was too bad.
I noticed that I am the only parent in that class that does this. In fact, I haven't seen this in the other classes either. Out of 14 kids, my son is the only one that brings treats to his friends and presents to his teachers. Keep in mind, we are on a tight budget. But I feel like this is soemthing nice to do. The kids love it and the teachers feel appreciated.

Do you guys do anything for your kids class? What do you think about a gift for the teachers?

Thanks! :)
