As a little girl, one of my favorite memories is a collective one.  When I was about five years old, my mom went to night school to get an associate’s degree.  We had moved in with my grandma for help and those are some of my most treasured memories.  But something we did every night at 7:00 PM sticks out as one of the happiest.  At 6:45, my grandma would look at me and say “it’s time” and I would run as fast as my little legs would carry me into my room to change into my pajamas and then run to the bathroom quick.  When I would come back out, grandma always had a bowl of vanilla ice cream for me (two scoops!) and one for her.  We would go into the living room and turn on her big tube TV to watch Wheel of Fortune together and try to guess the phrases before the contestants.  Every night I would stir and stir and stir my ice cream until I got just the right consistency and would offer to share my “ice cream soup” with grandma – she politely declined every night, but that didn’t stop me from asking.  I always thought that this exercise would make my ice cream (and the night) last longer.  Even if the show ended at 7:30 every night (which is did) and I had to go brush my teeth and get into bed (which I did), I looked forward to our ice cream and Wheel of Fortunate time each night. Some nights in the summer, she would make it extra special by handing me two quarters and letting me run out to the ice cream truck to get something special (I almost always chose the Snoopy pop) and that was such a fun feeling!

Walgreens Ice Cream Deals

While I haven’t implemented a nightly TV show and ice cream night with my girls, I do share my love of ice cream with them!  In fact, now that the weather is changing, they are wondering how we will get ice cream if the ice cream truck stops coming – but guess what?  They don’t need to worry about that!  We have a neighborhood Walgreens that is just a mere two blocks from our house and they have a full stock of fun Unilever ice creams for us to buy and try such as Magnum, Breyers, Klondike, Frutare, and Popsicle!  Even better, when you shop at Walgreens, you earn Rewards Points and after saving enough points, you can use your points to buy more ice cream (I recommend Breyer’s – they have some great flavors!!  Hello -Oreo!)

Tell me in the comments what your favorite flavor of ice cream or your favorite ice cream memory!

Save Time & Space with the Bobee Diaper Stacker!

Among the first things you learn when you have a baby is, your space is no longer your own.  Your house quickly becomes a museum of baby artifacts, toys and gear and once the baby arrives, that only multiplies as you actually need to find some of that stuff!  Things like diapers and wipes come to mind that were the hardest to figure out the best place for with our first.  We had a diaper stacker, but it was made of flimsy material and would often fall off of the wall where we had put it and while it held diapers or diaper inserts for our cloth diapers, it did nothing for wipes.  So as we look toward adding to our brood, I am excited to tell you about the coolest diaper stacker and wipe dispenser that will help save space in any nursery!  I received the Bobee diaper stacker in exchange for my honest opinion.

Muddy Puppy Milkshake Recipe #MyRocketShake

When it comes to desserts, in our house – anything ice based reigns supreme!  We love ice cream sundaes, ice cream cones, malts and milkshakes.  When it comes to the malt vs milkshake debate – ours is a house divided!  Hubby and Miss Goose love malts; while Miss LadyBug and I favor the milkshakes.  One rockin’ place to get shakes around the country is Johnny Rockets, a delightful all-American burger and milkshakes type of place!  So when they challenged me to the Shake It Up! Challenge to come up with a delicious milkshake, I knew I had to give it a try!  And that, my friends, is where this Muddy Puppy Milkshake recipe originates!
