Can you believe it’s almost the holiday season? Wasn’t it just summer? Have you started your holiday shopping? I tend to do it all year, but I also start paying attention around this time for the top toy trends.
I’ve learned the hard way that if you wait too long, the toys your kids want aren’t always around. Plus, waiting for those Black Friday sales aren’t always worth it.
Beginning October 4th, Walmart is presenting Holiday Toyland! You can interact with the hottest toys of the season and become an Official Toy Tester! To find out when it’s going on at your Walmart check HERE!
I’ll be there on October 4th. Check back next week for my review of one of these 2014 Hot Toy Trends I have listed below! (more…)

But first, I’ve got a delicious round up of a few apple recipes. I can’t wait for the cool, crisp days, the colorful leaves, and the days getting shorter! Fall makes me think of apples and apple cider. Here’s some delicious apple recipes that are some of my favorites!

Are you as excited as we are about the new Disney Infinity Games? My son first got Disney Infinity at Christmas last year, and he has played the heck out of it all year long. He loves to go shopping for new characters at Walmart. They usually have the best selection and the price.
Apart from video games, his second love is definitely superheroes, which means he is going to be jumping for joy when he sees the Disney Infinity 2.0 starter pack is Marvel Heroes with Black Widow, Thor, and Iron Man. In addition to the starter pack, you can also find The Hulk, Captain America, and many more characters available. (more…)
Have you tried the slow cooker mulled apple cider I shared a couple weeks ago? It’s one of my favorite things to drink on a crisp fall night. It’s actually dropping to the 50s here in Texas, and it’s only September! This makes me wonder if we might get more of a Fall and Winter than usual down here.
Whenever I make a batch of apple cider, I never really was sure what to do with the leftovers. I hated to throw them away, but I wasn’t too keen on reheating them as more apple cider. So, I’d save it, and then it’s just sit in the fridge for days until I finally gave up and threw it away. (more…)

In the month of September it seems like everybody is having a birthday. My birthday is in 2 days! Nate’s birthday was a week ago, and our daughter’s birthday was about 3 weeks ago. Then, there’s my mom whose birthday is just 2 days after mine. We have a lot of birthdays this month! Usually we go with the youngest to decide on the party. This time around it’s Disney Junior Doc McStuffins, and we have so many Doc McStuffins Birthday Party Ideas to share!
After we decided the theme was Doc McStuffins, we headed to Walmart. They have a great selection of Disney Junior party supplies from Sophia the First to Doc McStuffins, you can find everything you need for the birthday. We picked up plates, napkins (love that they’re double-sided!), goodie bags, and those adorable reusable cups. (more…)

Do you get a seasonal flu shot? Before I had my 3rd baby, I wasn’t really proactive in getting a flu shot. I didn’t think it was that big of a deal. Then, the big bad flu came in 2009 along with the H1N1 virus, and my ob/gyn heavily recommended I get the flu shot when I was pregnant. So, I did.
About a month later there was a huge shortage of flu vaccines across the country, and Mr. E, my son, came down with the flu. It was miserable, and then, it went through the whole family, except me. I vowed never again were we skipping the flu shot. Since that year everyone gets a flu shot every year, no matter what.
Most years I head to Walgreens to get my flu shot. It’s just so convenient and easy. There’s no appointment necessary at the pharmacy. Even if your Walgreens doesn’t have a clinic, the pharmacist can still give immunizations, and there is very little wait time. My insurance pays for them 100%, so I don’t have to pay anything out of pocket. Definitely check and see if yours does, too.
Not only does Walgreens offer seasonal flu shots, they also offer other routine vaccinations. (more…)
