Tracking PixelPringles®.. Ohh how I love thee! Its been around since my childhood and it still makes me as happy as it did as a kid. I still get excited when I get ready to open one of these, and this week was no exception. I was sent both regular and BBQ flavors to try – along with some drumsticks. Yes, the noisy kind not the food kind.

I was puzzled at first and wondered where the common ground was for Pringles® and percussion drumsticks, and then I made the connection…..

JP seemed to catch on pretty quick, and took the opportunity to make a drum set out of the Pringles® when I pulled them out for a movie snack this week. He got even more excited when I gave him the set of drumsticks that I had too!

Finding the 7th minion in our favorite box of cereal

Finding the 7th Minion -#The7thMinion #AD

Besides outdoor activities & going to the pool, one of the highlights of our summer is getting to go to the movies. It’s a special time for JP and myself because it’s just for us 2 at the moment. I’ve been spending sooo much time with the baby, that it’s been having an affect on his feelings. I knew this was going to happen before the baby came, and its probably the hardest part of being a mommy to 2.

We all have mom guilt to some degree, but lately mine has been haunting me because I feel like I say these things far too often to JP:

“Shhh! The baby is sleeping. Play Quietly!”

“In just a little while.. I have to feed Melody”

“We’ll talk about it more after I cook dinner”

“I gotta get Melody to sleep first, then we’ll play”

etc. etc…

What’s a mommy to do? I’m only 4 months into this new life of ours as a family of 4 and I’m always looking for creative things to do to keep my big kid feeling as special as the new baby. The upcoming  minion movie has been on our summer “must-do” list since before school finished out and I’ve heard about it almost every day since. So leading up to the release date, I’ve let JP select his box of cereal at the store to try and find the 7th minion. These boxes are only available at Walmart in the family size box and its so much fun to see what you get! Look for:

  • Honey Nut Cheerios
  • Cinnamon Toast Crunch
  • Lucky Charms
  • Reese’s Puffs
  • Trix
  • Cocoa Puffs
  • Golden Grahams

Having a special date night without leaving the house With DiGiorno’s Pizzeria! thin pizza

Having the best date night @ home with DiGiorno Pizzeria! Pizza #YouBeTheJudge #ad

I’m sure all the new parents of the world can sympathize when you come to the realization that “date nights” are a figment of your past life before children. This past June my hubby and I celebrated our 8th anniversary together – It’s hard to believe I’ve been married that long because it feels like it was yesterday when we said our I do’s! Nonetheless, finding the opportunity to go out and celebrate is just exhausting, and it’s so much easier to just spend a special evening at home together. With a new baby and the added expense of diapers and formula, we decided to do something cheap and low-key. My suggestion? DiGiorno’s Pizzeria! Thin Pizza, some wine and a table set for 2.

I must say  for a frozen pizza product, DiGiorno’s Pizzeria! Thin Pizza really surprised me at how close to a pizzeria pizza it was! With a thin, crispy crust this pizza had all the taste, texture & bite of a real restaurant pizzeria pizza. I also love that since these pizzas are square shaped, you can cook 2 of these side by side in the oven. With a round one, you can only cook one at a time.

I can show you glorious food photos about how good it was, but you make the decision.. DiGiorno’s is so sure that you will love the new DiGiorno’s Pizzeria! Thin Pizza that they are willing to give you a full refund if you don’t like it!

There’s 4 main types – Spinach & Mushroom, Primo Pepperoni, Supreme Speciale & Margherita and each one was as different as they were delicious. Ingredients are carefully selected and the crust is carefully crafted in a 700 degree oven to achieve that thin, crispy crust.

So once I unveiled our dinner place setting and got a serving of pizza on my plate, it was time to break out that wine and toast to our 8 wonderful years together!

Our anniversary couldn’t have been better if we had gone out to a fancy restaurant – Besides, I’d rather spend that extra money on the countless other things we need!
