Why A Superhero Costume?

If you’ve been following my blog, then you know that Lil Man turned 2 in March. So this year the holidays are a little more exciting for him than last year since he’s a little older. And October brings us Halloween. And he's totally into candy. So this should be fun for him. 

Also, picking out a costume was different this year than last. Last year, we didn't buy a costume. I know I know. But he still fit in the one that was too big from the year before, and we actually wound up letting him use it again. 

So this year, he's getting a new costume. And since he's in pre-school, they will have a little parade. And of course he needed a costume for trick-or-treating. 

Since we didn't get a costume last year, I really didn't know what I was getting into when I started looking. The costume that he had the last 2 years was given to us. So this is my first time shopping for a kid's Halloween costume. I was overwhelmed at all of the great options!  And after cruising AnytimeCostumes.com for quite some time, I settled on the Man of Steel Deluxe Costume.

The site was very easy to navigate, and I simplified the search process by sorting by size and category. 

Why a superhero? Because first of all, I'm thinking Lil Man will love the costume with the boots and the cape. I also think he'll like the 'muscled' chest. He amazes me with how strong he is at his age. And I think we made a good choice.

The costume seems very well made. The size was true to size. Overall, I am well pleased with the costume. And I think he likes it too. He wouldn't be still long enough for me to snap a non-blurry picture. 

Isn't this just the cutest Superhero ever?

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
