Extra Peanut Butter Bacon Cheeseburger

Yay! The first day of spring has finally arrived! Now if the temperatures would stop seesawing and stay warm, I would be overjoyed. Maybe if I consistently think about all the things I love about spring, it will finally start warming up. When I think about spring foods, I think about hamburgers and grilling.

My favorite projects to do with my kids are ones that can double as gifts. I just love giving loved ones homemade gifts, especially ones the boys made. With Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and birthdays coming up, we have been making a lot of different things, such as these DIY jars with layered faux colored sand.

I am sharing my story about adding P3 Portable Protein Pack, a #MeatCheeseNuts snack, into my routine as a part of a #PortableProtein sponsored campaign for #CollectiveBias. All opinions expressed are my own.

The last few weeks I have been doing pretty good at creating a healthier and more active lifestyle. I’m definitely not 100% where I want to be yet. My daily schedules are getting exponentially busier with each week. I have to make time for me no matter how hectic the day is going.

Snack time is always a favorite part of the day in my house. I like to frequently incorporate a movie or theme into the foods to make it more fun. With the DVD release of FROZEN coming next week, it only seems fitting to get the boys excited with a fun little snack.

Between this crazy winter weather, multiple sick kids, and countless appointments, the last few weeks have really taken a toll on me. I’ve been exhausted. It is easy to get stressed and lose myself with so much going on. Luckily, last week my husband and I pulled off a weeknight date night to unwind and enjoy some good food.

These DIY summer road trip kits & memory boxes are part of a sponsored campaign for #CollectiveBias. All opinions expressed are my own.

I have always loved road trips. Almost immediately after I started driving, my friends and I would plan a handful of road trips each summer. Last summer was the first time I went on one in years, but we didn’t take the kids. I have always thought about where we can go as a family, but how would I, or we, survive?
