Farm Show

It's that time of year again.. the Farm Show. I took Lil Man today to meet Daddy and walk around for a bit. He enjoyed it. He LOVED the milkshake. I think he preferred chocolate over half and half.

Then we took a stroll to see the animals. I don't think he had a 'favorite' animal but seemed to enjoy them all. We saw cows, pigs, goats, chickens, rabbits and ducks. It was insanely crowded as always. But we were able to get him close enough to most things to take a peek.

It's so much fun to watch him experience things. I can't help but wonder what's going through his little brain trying to process it all.

He is such an awesome little kid. I thought he would fall asleep on the way home, but thankfully he stayed awake (with the help of Sesame Street on DVD).

He's napping now and I'm taking just a few minutes for myself. It's been exhausting lately with temper tantrums, pushing boundaries, and just being a general toddler. Today (before the Farm Show) it was pushing a chair (that he's not allowed to push) on the kitchen floor. My kitchen floor now has blue paint all over it (sigh). Hubby made a stupid man remark by saying 'well, I'm sure the steamer will get it off'. Umm.. not the point. Wasn't planning on using the steamer today, or even mopping. But that wasn't the problem. The problem was that Lil Man threw as in T H R E W the chair when I told him he couldn't push it. All of this before 8:30am. I just wanted to drink my green tea.. not have to duck and cover and then reprimand for temper tantrum chair throwing. But we dealt with it.

Seven hours later I finally finished my morning cup of green tea.

The floor is still blue.

I'll tackle that after dinner.

It's called job security right?

Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker Review and Giveaway

I love music and streaming music through various apps on my iPhone. But with the case that I have on my phone, it sort of blocks the speakers a little. I can hear, but it can be a little muffled. So when I heard about the  Adfilic Bluetooth Stereo Portable Wireless Speaker  I jumped at the chance to try it. I was a little nervous since there really wasn't a lot of instructions on setup. I mean it had the usual pictures of this button does this etc, but there really wasn't a lot of documentation with it. So I was a little apprehensive at first.  But it didn't take me too long to realize that I didn't need a lot of instruction. It was pretty much straight forward. Charge it. After it was charged, turn it on. I went into my connections on my iPhone. It immediately found it, paired, and I was good to go.  I did get a little confused on which button was volume up (and down). But after a little trial and error with that, I've had absolutely zero iss

Little Buffalo State Park

I don't know about where you live, but where we live we are within driving distance to several State Parks. And because the weather has been so cool this Summer, and although it's August, last week was the first time we'd been to the pool. Lil Man had a blast. We had hoped some friends could join us today, but no one was available. But we ventured out, just the two of us, and we had a blast. The water was still pretty cold. In fact, we would get in - play for awhile - then get out and sit on a beach towel in the sun to warm up. This seemed to work well. We splurged and Lil Man enjoyed his first chocolate chipwich. He exclaimed "It's a cookie AND ice cream!" I do believe he thought it was a genius idea. Although it can be exhausting as my Lil Man is one that wants me to definitely join in with him with the sprinklers etc, it was pure joy to watch him enjoy himself. I think this picture speaks for itself. I hope you are enjoying your last few days

Ecosak Nylon Nut Bag Review

I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature. Well, can you believe that I am trying out a nut bag to make my own almond milk? (I'll pause a moment so that you can let the shock wear off!) I can honestly say that never in my life did I intend on making my own almond milk. But as you know, we are making some changes to our diet. So I decided I would give it a try.  And with the Ecosak I also received some recipes which really helped since I wasn't really sure what I was supposed to do. I asked Lil Man if he wanted to help me, and he was more than thrilled. Apparently making almond milk was an exciting and fun thing for him. First things first was to wash the Ecosak (easy to do) and soak the nuts. Yep, I put some raw almonds in a bowl, covered them with water and let them soak 6-8 hours or so. After they had been soaked, I
