    Last summer, one of my friends came to me and asked me to decorate her daughter’s camp locker. I was thrilled to do this for her! I worked at a summer camp during my college years and adored my time there. A lot of kiddos are headed to sports camps, church camps, teen camps, and all kinds of other summer camps (my oldest attends math camp). Most of the sleep away camps request that children bring foot lockers to store their clothes and other items. They make fabulous impromptu seats and can store a lot. But who wants to have the standard, blah, boring foot locker? My friend purchased this foot locker from Walmart:

Summer Activities for Dogs

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #PetsLoveBeyond #CollectiveBias

Easy summer activities to get the energy out of your dogs during the summer heat. From water toys to bubbles, we offer simple ideas. Along with activities we discuss Purina Beyond Grain Free Dog Food and why we chose to have it be the fuel for our dogs. #PetsLoveBeyond #CollectiveBias #AD #dogs #pets #summertime
      Summertime can be a hard time for our furry pets. Texas summers are really hard. There are days were the weather just won’t allow us to walk our doggies. No one wants to see pavement burn their pet’s paws. Maybe your dogs are like our 2 Boston’s and still have energy. Our dogs look forward to spending time outdoors, so we’ve had to adjust our schedule to reflect the Texas heat. I’d love to share how we channel their energy in our back yard. By splitting these activities throughout the day, we are able to get the same effect as walking our dogs. To keep my dog's energy up while playing, we feed them Purina® Beyond® Grain Free Dog Food.

Daily activity and transportation chart. Features an easy to use free printable daily Activity and Transportation guide. Super busy mom? Teenage boys love Stouffer's Fit Kitchen meals. #powerfulprotein #ad #cbias #proteinup #freeprintable #timemanagement

I’m a busy mom. Like really busy. Most of the time, you can find me in my van taking kiddos to and from activities. The problem is, I can’t clone myself. There are many days I have to throw the Major into the mix so our kids make it to their events. We are like 2 ships passing in the night sometimes during the busy days. In an effort to make sure every kid gets to where they need to go, we started charting every night who was taking who where. Instead of wasting a piece of paper every night, I came up with this fun printable.

Butterscotch Chocolate Chip Cookie Ice Cream Sandwich Sundaes
 Summer is in full swing, and we are loving hot Texas nights for giving us an excuse to enjoy cold ice cream. Nothing tastes better on the back porch. My kiddos love ice cream sandwiches, but I hate the mess. We have combined our favorites into a fun sundae so the only thing I have to clean are the dishes (and a few drips off their chins!). Nothing beats a classic premium vanilla ice cream, and our go to is Blue Bunny Ice Cream. For this mouthwatering dessert I used other classic favorites, like Chips Ahoy cookies, Hershey’s chocolate sauce, and my own homemade butterscotch sauce! The secret to this recipe is dipping the cookies into the butterscotch sauce and allowing it to set up. The hardest part is waiting to assemble the ice cream sandwiches!

Grilled Peaches with Thyme for Ooey Gooey Fruity Smore's!

Take your grilling to the next level with Grilled Peaches & Thyme. Make ooey gooey fruity Smore's. #KingsfordFlavor #CollectiveBias #peaches #sp #ad

    Summer is in full swing! We love to grill outside during these hot Texas summers. I don’t want to think about turning my oven on. My poor A/C is already working hard enough! We use our grill for traditional items like fish, chicken or steak. But we like to use it for a fun dessert too! Did you know grilled fruit tastes fabulous??? Our favorite fruit to use are fresh peaches. I put a spin on it, and add a simple syrup with thyme. The thyme adds such a fun, non-traditional, almost earthy taste to it. Combined with an ooey gooey melted marshmallow in between crunchy graham crackers—oh my! To add that touch of flavor, we grill the peaches on our charcoal grill. We use Kingsford Charcoal Twin Packs because the charcoal is so easy to work with, and easy to find among the grilling items at the Home Depot. The peaches grill up quickly and the simple syrup caramelizes to add a touch of sweetness!
