Halloween Treats | Zombie Oreo Cookie Eyeballs


Let's talk zombies. Since The Walking Dead series took off almost four years ago the zombie has become the favorite monster of many. I may be the only human being out there left to say this but I have never actually watched an episode of the show. That doesn't mean I don't have a soft spot for the emancipated, decaying, brain-eating, grotesque community of zombies. No longer the bottom feeder of the monster world, zombies make Halloween much more exciting.

Meet The New Keurig® 2.0 With Carafe! #HelloKeurig

Disclosure: I received the Keurig 2.0 for review purposes from Influenster. I am not being compensated and all opinions are my own!


Can we make it official that the art of coffee wizardry was created by the Keurig company? I already convinced myself of this when I used my very first Keurig brewer a few years ago. Our old coffee pot was dismembered and tossed in the garage within minutes of popping in the first K-Cup. Right now it's still collecting dust as its competition sits comfortably on my kitchen counter, receiving endless amounts of love each day. As a member of Influenster I had the chance to try the new Keurig® 2.0 K550 Brewing System which contains updated technology along with the ability to brew coffee in a carafe! Now I can use the K-Carafe™ packs to brew up to four cups of my favorite beverages at once.

Easy Peasy Bisquick Pizza + Publix #FlavorExcursion Italian Week

Disclosure: The information and prize pack have been provided by General Mills through Platefull Co-Op.


Home-cooked Italian is always a delicious and affordable meal option. I used to think that I couldn't pull it off in my own kitchen because I like to keep my recipes simple and impossible to screw up. I'm no seasoned chef by any means but I do like to experiment and work with different flavors. Italian food is OH-SO-GOOD and in high school I was fortunate to work for a small family owned Italian restaurant in my area. They made killer garlic rolls and the best Ziti, Broccoli, and Chicken I have ever tasted! After two years I became familiar with the flavors, recipes, and fresh ingredients used to make the dishes deliciously authentic.

Fun Fall Fashions At The Children's Place #PLACEFall

Disclosure: I was provided with a gift card to shop the Fall trends at the Children's PLACE.


Fall trends have made their way back into stores and The Children's Place has the most fashionable picks for your the kiddos this season. Back to school shopping has been conquered but I am already bored of the basic solid colored polo shirts and stiff khaki pants Toodie has to wear every single day. I'm sure she is too considering the first thing she does when she gets home from school is rip them off and throw on anything in her closet with a pop of color. After a month of dull colors and plain Jane outfits it was time to bring some life back into her bland wardrobe. Bright colors, sparkle, sequins, and embellished graphics- yes please!

Halloween Treats | Eerie Eyeball Pretzel Rods


Last week I picked up a copy of the Better Homes & Gardens newest Halloween Tricks & Treats edition for 2014. Normally I head straight to Pinterest when looking for ideas and inspiration but I am loving the quick and clever creations within the pages of this seasonal magazine. Inspired by a set of bright green pretzel rods decorated with eyeballs, I re-created my own version of spooky salted sticks. These Eerie Eyeball Pretzel Rods are easy to make and also adorable for Halloween. Since my trial run was a success I plan on making these for Toodie's class next month. They are just the right amount of creepy and can be individually wrapped for each child to enjoy!
