Recipe: Muddy Wheaties #Recipe #Nutrition

We love quick and easy recipes that are packed with protein, carbs, and nutrients.  In today's post, I want to share a recipe for Muddy Wheaties. This is a fantastic snack for post-workout recovery. It is also a snack that my energetic preschooler loves!  

It means a lot to share this trendy Muddy Wheaties recipe because it is a recipe that is packed with protein, fiber, and many other nutrients. Wheaties has been around since 1924 and is a cereal that my grandmother enjoyed and has been eaten by each generation of our family for approximately 90 years. Wheaties is primarily comprised of a wheat and bran mixture.  

My grandmother had colon cancer and has always encouraged us to eat high-fiber diets. Wheaties is commonly served in our family for breakfast and snacks. For instance, a 3/4 cup of Wheaties has 3g of fiber. Of course, Wheaties is also a great source of carbs with 22g per serving. Wheaties is a good source of Folic acid as it contains 50% of the daily recommended allowance. Wheaties also contains Vitamins A, C, D, B6, and B12. It has calcium, iron, thiamin, riboflavin, phosphorus, magnesium, and zinc.   Combining Wheaties with a chocolate milk such as the Rockin' Refuel Chocolate Milk adds a good flavor and 20g of protein per 11 oz. serving.  This chocolate milk also adds a variety of nutrients and minerals. As a trendy mom, I really appreciate the 60% calcium and 35% Vitamin D that it contributes toward my recommended daily allowance!

Recipe: Muddy Wheaties
Ingredients:
  • 2 cups of Wheaties cereal
  • 1 Rockin' Refuel Chocolate Milk

Directions:
1. Fill a bowl with the Wheaties and then add the Rockin' Refuel Chocolate Milk.

Check out my Trendy PEEPSONALITY #PEEPSONALITY

Disclosure: The PEEPS ® product, information and gift have been provided by Just Born Retail Group. All opinions are honest and our own.

Easter is one of my favorite holidays of the year because it is an opportunity to reflect and change for the better. As we celebrate the Easter season, reflection, and continuous self-improvement, my son will also tell you that Easter morning is also about fun and sharing. He looks forward to the traditions of spending time together and sharing colorful and flavorful treats. I was fortunate this year to receive a package with trendy PEEPS products that I want to tell you about, including classics and newly released products that we love.

First, let me start with some trivia about PEEPS that is fun to share:
  • Yellow is America's best-selling color of PEEPS® Chicks and Bunnies, followed by pink and then blue.
  • Just Born produces enough PEEPS® Brand Marshmallow Candies in one year to circle the earth three times.
  • Chicks rule! 4 out of every 5 PEEPS® purchased are Chicks – either flavored, dipped in chocolate, covered in chocolate or in the original un-flavored marshmallow form.

The selection of PEEPS this year is fantastic!  You'll find new designs and fantastic flavors. As we share some of the different options, I hope that you will think about - What is your PEEPSONALITY?  Are you a classic yellow chick gal? Do you love anything dipped in chocolate? Do you like surprises? Do you prefer fruity flavors?  Do you have another PEEPSONALITY that I didn't mention?

The first is the trendy new PEEPS Decorated Eggs. These are brand new this year and include nine white eggs that are iced with pastel colors in 3 unique designs. 

The next set of products are PEEPS Marshmallow Bunnies. As shown below, they have an amazing selection of colors and flavors. My son's favorites are the "Mystery Bunnies". It's really funny to watch his face as he tries each PEEP.  (The Mystery Bunnies are exclusively available at Walmart.)  My personal favorite includes the PEEPS Chococlate Mousse Flavored Mashmallow Bunnies. They satisfy my chocolate cravings! 

The classic PEEPS are available in several colors.  As shown below, you'll notice that we have PEEPS in each of our family member's favorite colors - Blue (Dad), Green (my Son), and Pink (Me).


There is also a new variety of PEEPS that is exclusively available at Target. I'm obsessed with them because they include PEEPS that are dipped in fruity flavors of fudge. This includes new Lemon Delight Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Lemon Fudge, Orange Delight Flavored Marshmallow Chicks Dipped in Orange Fudge, and Lime Delight Flavored Mashmallow Chicks Dipped in Lime Fudge.  Of course, the PEEPS Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Chicks are also back this year and among my favorites!


Finally, let me share a few lollipops that are super popular with my preschooler. The PEEPS Rainbow Pop includes four trendy chicks in colors yellow, green, pink, and blue. The bright colors make this a nice accent to Easter baskets.  They also have PEEPS Lollipops that are shaped like bunnies and taste similar to PEEPS.  These lollipops rocked my son's world!


Finally, in addition to the PEEPS products above, I also want to share a photo of some great products from the Just Born Retail Group. My husband will tell you that the Hot Tamales Jelly Beans are his absolutely favorite!  He buys Hot Tamales in bulk, so these jelly beans were a nice surprise.  Personally, I am a big fan of the Teenee Beanees jelly beans. These are perfect for filling plastic eggs. The Peanut Chews are fantastic and give a classic American touch that my grandmother would love. Of course, the Mike & Ike Caramel Clusters Popcorn is another trendy Easter treat. The combination of sweet and salty is great, especially with the Mike & Ike candies in there.  My son will also tell you that the Mike & Ike lollipops are awesome!



Now, back to my original question - What is your PEEPSONALITY? Personally, I have my favorites as mentioned above, but I also like to get creative with our PEEPS.  Let me share two PEEPS projects that show my PEEPSONALITY!

The first is something that I call, "S'Mores for my PEEPS". My family created this together this morning. Click here for the project details.



The second is a "PEEPS Bouquet". Click here for the project details.



As you may notice, we have a lot of fun with colorful and delicious PEEPS!


What is your PEEPSONALITY? What is your favorite flavor and/or color? Do you have a favorite PEEPS project?

  • The Firm Fit Harness that keeps babies comfortable in their seat 
In addition to the 3-way FirmFit System, I like that this car seat includes preemie body support. This is something that you hope that you don't need, but if you do need it, it's nice to be prepared.  I also like that this is compatible with the GB ZuZu Stroller and that it is easy to carry by the handle.

Trendy Graduation Gift: Add a Thoughtful Card to a Diploma Frame #EarnItFrameIt #ProudGrad

I recently attended the #EarnItFrameIt Twitter party and loved fantastic gift ideas that people mentioned. Personally, I created a gift that uses a trendy diploma frame with a cute card that I placed in the frame. The gift recipient may remove the card to read my thoughtful message about how proud I am of them and then place their diploma in the beautiful frame.  I thought that this was the perfect gift since it's important to be proud of your accomplishments and display your diploma proudly!

Personally, we ordered this frame from Church Hill Classics (www.diplomaframe.com). Their website makes it easy to select custom frame styles for more than 1,500 colleges and universities. They have all of the trendy styles, including color-enameled medallions of the school seal or athletic logo, beautiful campus images, foil embossing of the school name or seal, and even options that have opening for tassles. I love that they also have great options for different frame moulding and matting.

I ordered the trendy frame below that features the Arizona State University logo. I loved that I was able to find this frame with the officially licensed logo on it without having to go to the bookstore. I also loved that they had nice customization options so that I was able to select a trendy moulding and matting that I knew my gift recipient would love!


As I mentioned, I inserted a card into this frame as a place holder for the diploma. I thought that inserting the card made a thoughtful touch as I was able to share how proud I was of our graduate.  It's very easy to simply tape the card into place so that it looks pretty as shown below.

Of course, our graduate loved the gift! I'm so proud!

Do you know an upcoming graduate that would love a trendy diploma frame?

Tips for Extreme Easter Egg Hunts to Challenge Older Children #Easter #EggHunts

Have you been wondering how to make Easter Egg Hunts more challenging for your children? In this post, we'll share five tips to help you to create a challenging Easter Egg Hunt for your older children!  These tips are perfect for tweens, teens, or grown children. You may vary the difficulty level as you see fit.

1. Incorporate Indoor Hard-2-Find Easter Eggs
The Wonka Indoor Egg Hunt Hard to Find Eggs will help you take your Easter Egg Hunt to a new level. They have eggs that have built-in:
  • Suction cups,
  • Double-sided tape,
  • Strings, and
  • Flat edges
These eggs allow you to be very creative. For instance, the photo below shows that I stuck an egg with double-sided tape under our counter, placed an egg with a flat edge on top of a door, hung a hanging egg on my son's towel rack, applied a suction cup egg to a mirror in a hallway, and applied a section cup egg to a lamp in my husband's office.  These eggs are really awesome for increasing the challenge, especially if your children don't know that these eggs exist and wouldn't think to look in such creative places.



2. Incorporate Hard-2-Find Easter Eggs
The Wonka OutdoorHard to Find Eggs are fun to use outdoors. They have trendy eggs that blend into our terrain, including:
  • Rocks,
  • Tulips,
  • Ladybugs, and
  • Green eggs to blend with grass and trees
We place these in trees, grass, bushes, and flowers. This is especially fun if your children have never seen these types of eggs before!



3. Make it a race
"Ready, Set, Go!" Let your children race to find the most eggs. The winner receives a special prize and bragging rights. The winner also gets to pick what we eat for breakfast


4. Make it a GPS Egg Hunt
Create an Easter Egg Hunt that uses GPS and scavenger hunt clues. Give clues that make the eager hunters creatively solve problems in order to find the locations of eggs.  The level of difficulty is easy to adjust based on the age of your children. You may even want to get multiple families involved for extra competition!

5. Make it a Haunted Egg Hunt
Move your Easter Egg Hunt to evening and wrap the eggs in glow sticks. This may be done indoors or outdoors. We live against forest, so we keep our haunted egg hunt indoor to be safe, but I am sure that this varies based on where you live. In any case, this is one of my son's favorite activities!



Of course, you could combine multiple tips above to make an over-the-top Extreme Easter Egg Hunt!

6 Tips for Family Sun Protection #DFW #SunProtection

Here in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro, we have to be cautious about our sun exposure. The nice weather draws us outdoors at this time of year as we go hiking, boating, walking, and more.  The sun is often quite strong, so it is important to protect your entire family from overexposure to the sun's harmful rays. In this post, I will share 6 tips for protecting your family.

1. Minimize sun exposure and seek shade
If it is possible, avoid spending time outdoors during peak sun hours or seek shade during that time. That is, 10am-3pm during standard time and 11am-4pm during daylight savings.  Of course, it may not be possible to completely avoid sun exposure during these peak times, so we have additional tips.

2. Install UV protection on your car windows
Here in Texas, we are allowed to tint our windows because of the strong sun.  Personally, we have tinted windows with UV protection and is has helped a lot, especially since we often find ourselves caught in traffic with a glaring sun. This is very important to me as I have a little boy with fair skin that complains about the sun hurting his skin. We feel that it was definitely worth the investment.

3. Wear clothing with UPF 50+ protection
Your average t-shirt provides very little protection from harmful rays.  On the other hand, brands such as Coolibar offer clothing that provides UPF 50+ protection.  They have trendy clothing for the entire family. For instance, let me show you a few trendy items that I personally wear.

The first is the trendy Hip Zip Rash Guard (Item 03254). This trendy shirt is stylish and comfortable. I love that the designers paid close attention to detail when designing this shirt. The zippers on the shoulder and side are a nice touch that make it easy to pull the shirt on, but then make it look more fitted once you zip them closed.  I love the "Fresh Mist" pale blue color this season, but the shirt is also available in cobalt and white colors.



The second item is the trendy ZnO Beach Pants (Item 01249).  These trendy pants are incredibly comfortable. I love how they fit and that the fabric is super soft.  These are my go-to pants for active days outdoors.  The photo below shows them in the Coal color, but they are also available in several other colors.



The third item is the trendy Ruched Swim Bottom (Item 03271F). They are shown in the Coral Abstract Floral print, but also come in a Cobalt Abstract Floral print. This is a great swim bottom for trendy moms that want a swim bottom that gives extra coverage. The bottoms are comfortable, pretty, and have a nice ruched pattern.



In addition, they have clothing for the entire family. The photos below show a few fashionable looks for the rest of the family.  Visit Coolibar to find more options.



4. Wear sunscreen
Purchase good quality sunscreen and apply it liberally and frequently. Personally, we prefer a minimum of SPF 30 and look for natural and organic sunscreens.  There are even sunscreens out there that have moisturizing formulas!

5. Wear a good quality hat
Select a hat that has a wide brim and offers UPF protection. For instance, Coolibar has many hats that offer UPF 50+ protection for the entire family.

6. Wear protective sunglasses
It's not only our skin that may be harmed by the sun, but also our eyes. Be sure to wear large sunglasses that are specifically labeled as "UV-blocking".

Trendy Books that are Fun and Education for Spring Break and Easter #Books #Children

My son is currently home for spring break.  We wanted to make this a productive time for him to relax and enjoy time with us at home. After all, he spends so much time at school that it is rare for us to have him to ourselves all day long!  In the post today, I will share books and a puzzle that we enjoyed over the break. 

The first set of books are perfect for spring and Easter.  My son loves the trendy Snuggle Bunny book that has a built-in puppet. We've read this book many times over and it makes him giggle every single time. 



The next set of books are perfect for toddlers and preschoolers. The Farm Friends: Busy Bunny book comes in the adorable box below with a book and bunny.  We frequently read this book before bedtime. It's a comforting book that has become one of my son's favorites. The next two books, PLAY-DOH: Counting Bunnies and PLAY-DOH: Mama's Little Ducklings inspire creativity. Similar to many other preschoolers, my son has a big imagination and love animals. These sweet little books are fun to read and then inspire him to play with PLAY-DOH to create the characters from the books. Of course, we love that he practices counting with the Counting Bunnies Books.  We also love the fun peek-a-book surprises in the Mama's Little Ducklings book.



A fun book that has kept my son entertained for hours is the Stamps & Doodles for Boys book.This set includes trendy stamps and then cute pages for him to stamp. There is even blank paper in the back for him to create his own scene.



The Smithsonian Young Explorers: 50 States Puzzle is a lot of fun for young children that are learning about the United States. My son had fun building the puzzle and then talking about the states that he has visited.  He also enjoyed learning about the states that he has yet to visit.  This puzzle opens a lot of good discussion about geography and travel.



The Smithsonian Discover: Earth book is special because it has a lot of activities in it that make little ones think.  My son loves that it is organized so well and offers so much information for him to learn. He attended Space Camp last summer and said that this book covers more than he even learned at Space Camp.  (That's a big complement from a 4 year old!)

Race Car Bedroom Makeover with DIY Play Town Furniture Craft #Kids #HomeDecor

Race Car Bedroom Makeover with DIY Play Town Furniture Craft #Kids #HomeDecor
In today's post, I want to share a low-cost bedroom makeover for boys that centers around a race car theme.  We'll start with a trendy and inexpensive furniture from Delta Children and then share a quick and easy DIY craft to transform simple furniture such as toy boxes, tables, or benches into a play town with roads.

Race car themed rooms are trendy for little boys.  Delta Children has a great selection of race car themed beds, toy boxes, chairs, and more.  I'm a big fan of Delta Children because they seem to strike a perfect balance of price and quality.  I have an energetic four year old little boy, so the furniture has to be good quality.  I also love that they have many characters and themes that make it easy to decorate your child's room in ways that they are sure to remember.  

Personally, I am in love with their iconic beds that are shaped like race cars. These beds add a fun touch to boy's rooms and are sure to be among their favorite childhood memories.  They also have adorable toy boxes, shelves, chairs, and more. For instance, my son has the trendy Cars Deluxe Book and Toy Organizer. We love this organizer because my son reads several books each day. He selects 10 books each day that he wants to read and puts them on the top shelf of this organizer.  He uses the bins to store toys. Click here to check out their trendy furniture.


Once you commit to your bed frame and other accessories, here is a fun and easy DIY Project that uses colored masking tape to transform a toy box, table, or small book shelf into a Play Town with roads.


DIY Play Town Furniture Craft
Supplies:
  • One flat piece of furniture that is sturdy and will not tip over or break if a child pulls, climbs, or site on it.
  • One roll of yellow masking tape
  • Optional: one roll of black masking tape if the furniture is not black
  • Optional: one sheet of easy-to-remove traffic sign stickers
Directions:
1. Cut the tape into small strips as shown and apply to a clean and dry surface into dashed patterns that make the shapes of roads.  Optionally, if the furniture is not black, use black tape to create the roads and then place the yellow strips in a dashed pattern on top of the black tape.

2. Optionally, place traffic sign stickers near the roads.
