Strawberry In Your Banana

For MZB Accessories Strawberry-Banana 3-In-1 Body Wash, Shampoo, & Conditioner

shampoo

First of all, this scent is to die for. It is so sweet with a hint of real bananas. It is like candy, gummy strawberry scent with a real banana scent in it. I really love how my son’s hair smells after using. The wash itself is a bright red color, which can be alarming. I was expecting a pinker color. Dean loves the Minion character, so he learned to love bath time to be able to play with the bottle. The eyes are holographic which is neat. I bought this at Walmart for like 6 bucks. I have already repurchased this. I love to sniff my boy’s hair when I rock him in my arms before bed time. I hope that isn’t too weird.

With Love,

Turkey Hotdogs

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Sticks Meat Sticks in Turkey

img_1567

I find it funny that even though it says Turkey, the first ingredient is pork, then beef, then ground turkey. I also think that one jar of meat sticks is too much for one meal. He eats one to two sticks at every meal. He really enjoyed them and I bought the jar of chicken sticks, which are only made of chicken. I think maybe because they are called meat sticks, they put other “meat” in it? I don’t know, but that is very misleading. This is why I encourage everyone to read labels. You never really know what you are actually eating, until then. These sticks are great to have around for a quick meal. Dean will have them whole, steamed with veggies, or I’ll cut them up and fry them a bit in the pan. He loves them any way you make them.

With Love,

Foodie Post

For Gerber Lil’ Beanies With Cheddar and Broccoli

Dean loves these and I love how healthy these are for him. These have been featured so much on my blog and this review includes the plain ones as well. They have 2 grams of protein per serving, because they are made of beans. It also contains less than 1 gram of sugar, which is a nice added benefit. I have repurchased these again and again. I will keep repurchasing, until I can find a good adult alternative. Possibly, veggie sticks? Those are made with veggies instead of beans though. Dean can eat these all day and he asks for them with his hands when he sees the container. I highly recommend these for toddlers everywhere. They are a great nutritious, filling snack. I might do an Amazon order, if they come in more flavors, so Dean can try some new tastes. Also, they are less expensive when bought in bulk.

With Love,

Collective April Haul

I am borrowing this blog post type from my friend Danielle over at Dani Writes Reviews. She has a similar type of post on her no buy about what she has bought that month. I really like this sort of post when you don’t really have enough things purchased to do a haul post. I have collected things here and there over the course of April and here is what I have purchased:

Royal and Langnickel Moda Prismatic 4PC Face Perfecting Kit

I had a $10 Walmart gift card from signing up with Ebates and making my first purchase and I also had $2.75 from bottle deposits, so I only spent $5 on this set of makeup brushes out of pocket. I only tried them once and I am really impressed with the big 801 brush. It buffed out my foundation flawlessly in 60 seconds. I am not even joking. I have never done my foundation that fast before and my skin looked more flawless than when I used a Beauty Blender to blend out my makeup.

Physician’s Formula Mineral Wear Cushion Foundation in Medium

I got this in the Walmart clearance section for $6.50 which is 50% off of the original price. I really wanted to try a more matte cushion foundation. Unfortunately, this color is way too dark for me and I will be using this as a contour color instead underneath my foundation. I actually found a foundation that I really enjoy that I am hoping to pick up in May. This would go great underneath that one.

face

Equate Wedge Sponges

You cannot go wrong with cheap sponges infused with vitamin E for $1.88 for 32. I use this to blend my concealer and to tap on liquid highlighter. They are good quality and I am thinking of using one for nail art, specifically with glitter. I heard they are really good to get an opaque coat of glitter.

food

Paw Patrol Reusable Plastic Plate

Dean loves Paw Patrol, but he isn’t old enough to use a plate yet. He just likes to throw it.

Max Studio Pet Bed

This pet bed was only $16.99 at Marshalls. The dogs needed a new bed that would fit both of them in there at the same time. This is still roomy with the two of them in there. They love it and will still fight for it, even though there is room for three.

Fido’s Diner Stonewear

This is their new water dish. No more using my bread pans to give them water. It is cute and deep. They both share the water and will actually take turns. It’s cute!

Yankee Candle in Tropic Island Breeze

This was a great candle. It was very tropical and coconutty, while still being very light and refreshing. Sadly, this candle died, when my dad dropped a can on it and the top of the glass shattered. I’m heading to Marshall’s to try to find this one again. If you can find it, I would give it a good sniff. It was worth the $13 that I spent on it, even though it didn’t make it through. It is also a huge ass candle. It’s 22 oz of candle and I saved a few bucks on it. I never had a Yankee Candle before, now I know what the fuss is about.

Clothes for Dean and Me

Dean’s new clothes are from Macy’s size 12 months and they were $11.99 each. My long sweater tunics are from Forever 21 and they were $11.99 buy one get one free. Dean and I still need more clothes. We need more summer clothes. You might see a few shopping sprees in May, because a. It’s my birthday and b. I really need more clothes. I only have a Fall/Winter wardrobe right now. I decluttered a ton of my clothes that don’t fit anymore.

I think I’m going to start a fitness series to keep my weight loss goals on track and to keep on top of my exercise goals. I think I’ll make an intro post and then update once a month.

Dean’s Chrisbirthday Present From D

Danielle very graciously bought my son a Christmas and Birthday present. I am very grateful for being gifted with a caring best friend that supports me no matter what decisions I have made in my life. I just hope that I am as great of a friend to her as she is to me, because as far as friends go, she’s pretty amazing.

IMG_1628

This is the cutest little penguin ever! Dean enjoys biting on his beak, which all four of Dean’s first molars have erupted! They are half way through his gums. Now, my little boy has twelve teeth. I think he can only get 8 more, so here’s to many more.

She also bought him Micky Mouse pjs, a fleece one piece, and a Paw Patrol shirt, which Dean adores dearly. I love having a few more new things to put him in. He never seems to have enough clothes, especially since half off his pants are too long. He is short for his age. He wears 9 month old pants and clothes. He is a 14 month old in 9 month old clothes.

We have new books to read to Dean and he has tons of new toys to play with. He is blessed with love and that is what is important. He still has a lot of basic toys though. He doesn’t want for anything. I will happily go without to get Dean something he needs/wants. He loves the little train cars and the shapes. He gnaws on the rubber ducky and tries to eat the books as well. He is attached to his big red Clifford that Danielle had bought him months ago now. He sleeps with him at night. It’s so cute to find him in the morning snuggling with a stuffed animal that is almost as big as he is. Well, that is what Danielle got Dean for his birthday and Christmas. He is a spoiled, sweet boy.

With Love,

February Empties

Another month gone by and another basket full of empties! I have a couple of empties for March waiting to go in here, so I thought that the sooner I write this post, the better. I’ll be saving some of these items for reviews to do in a separate bag, but some of these are repurchases and I won’t be reviewing those unless my opinion changes on them. I think I might have more than last month, but we’ll see soon. 🙂 I’m so happy to be using this stuff up instead of having it sit around. I want to buy new stuff, but not for the sake of just having stuff. I don’t have the storage space for that!

See you next month for my March empties!

Another Dean Food Haul

I am back with a few interesting posts on the way. I will be having my Pan That Pallet Update, February Empties, a sponsored post from TopHatter, 7 Before Spring Finale, What Dean got for Christmas/Birthday from Danielle, What I got for Christmas from Danielle, as well as review posts. Dean eats a lot of food, so I’m constantly buying stuff for him. I bought him a big 2 lb bag of animal crackers, since they have less sugar in them than the one I bought him below. When I go grocery shopping tomorrow, I’m gonna grab him some more healthy snacks like soft cereal bars and veggie crackers. He needs to get more fruits and veggies which are messy to feed him and he doesn’t really like them. He’s more of a meat and starch little guy.

food

Gerber lil’ Beanies Original

Walmart only had the plain beanie snack and Dean prefers food with flavor. He still eats them, though. They are just not his favorite plain. He loved the cheese and broccoli ones. I’m going to buy a big bulk pack at Market Basket, because it’s cheaper and comes in a variety pack. He’s an eater, so the container is already half empty and I bought all of this stuff two weeks ago. Go figure!

food

Plum Organics Might Sticks in Berry Beet

Same deal. Half the pack is gone. Dean loves this and he is getting his fruit and vegetables. It can get a little messy, but it is so worth it. Not sure that I would buy it again, because it is on the pricey side. It is a good, healthy snack for your toddler though.

food

Gerber Graduates Cinnamon Graham Animal Crackers

Dean loves these crackers/cookies, but now he has the other ones that I bought him. I won’t be repurchasing this one, but he will be finishing it. The bag is almost done as is, so I needed to buy him another snack anyways. I’m trying to phase him into real food/snacks and less on the toddler helping foods. The toddler foods are still great to have on hand, but I’ve been making an effort to feed him “adult” food.

sippy cup

Munchkin Paw Patrol Insulated Sippy Cups

For the first time a few days ago, Dean was able to suck milk out of this. He’s not on sippy cups, yet. He hasn’t figured them out yet, but we try multiple times a day and let him play/explore them. I’m not concerned about it. I plan to take away his bottles, when he is 18 months old/ 1 1/2 years old. At that age, he should be able to drink from a sippy. At that point, he would just be lazy. He was a late bloomer with feeding himself food and eating, so I suspect that he’s a late bloomer with sippy cups as well.
