Rainbow Rubber Band Refill Pack Review

The rubber band bracelets are popular right now!  My kids are obsessed, however the little bags of elastics they sell in the stores right now can get pricey and they don’t last very long.  However I have found a perfect solution.  Rainbow Braid sent me there Rainbow Rubber Band Refill Pack to review and I was astonished with the amount of bands in the pack.
The Refill Pack comes with 2400 elastics!  Including 12 smaller bags each with 200 bands of the following colors; Red, Orange, Glow in the Dark Yellow, Light Green, Green, Light Blue, Blue, Purple, Rose, Pink, White, and Black.  The Refill pack also includes 150 clips for bracelet making.

As soon as I opened the package the kids eyes lit up bright and they went to town making hundreds of bracelets for everyone.
The colors of the rubber bands are vibrant and the quality is top notch.  The package allows kids to create endless designs and I loved the fact the colors come pre divided in their own inner packages which means we don’t have to spend hours sorting out the colors.
As a result of this awesome package, I have children walking around with rubber band bracelets up to their elbows!  They are also all smiles!
You can order your own Rainbow Rubber Band Refill Pack on Amazon!

Quick and Easy Churro Chips Recipe

This is a quick and easy way to make a Churro like snack out of premade tortilla’s!
1 dozen flour tortillas, any brand
1-2 cups cooking oil
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tbsp ground cinnamon
Before you do anything else, prepare a paper bag with the sugar and cinnamon, shake it up so that it’s evenly mixed.
Fill a shallow frying pan with about an inch of cooking oil and place it over medium heat for about five minutes till, its just starting to sizzle.

Stack up four to five flour tortillas and cut through them, creating long strips. Drop four to five individual strips into the hot oil at a time. Let tortilla strip cook for about a minute before flipping and leaving in the oil for another fifteen to thirty seconds. Drain tortilla chips before dropping them into the bag of sugar and cinnamon– it helps to have someone there to do this while you cook the rest of the chips.
Once the chips are completely covered in the sugar mixture, place them on a plate to cool and continue making the rest of the tortilla chips in the hot oil.

And Finished! A sweet and yummy snack!

Mrs. Fields Nibblers are Mommy and Munchkin Approved! Oh MyYummyness! #Nibblers

My Family loves Mrs. Fields cookies, its the special treat we get at the end of a busy shopping day at the local mall.  The cookies are always soft, chewy, and perfect! 

When I opened the mail and the kids caught  a glimpse of the Mrs. Fields logo on the box and it resulted in three little kids doing a happy dance around the house.
Mrs. Fields new Nibblers cookies are amazing, with a fudge dipped bottom, they are the perfect fix for any sweet tooth.  Milk and cookies is the first combination that came to my mind, but Anthony was on the right track when he decided to make some ice cream sandwiches out of the nibblers!  I can already picture this perfect afternoon snack fitting into the coming summer months, sitting outside by the pool eating home made ice cream sandwiches in every flavor Mrs. Fields Nibblers come in!
Of course the little ones loved their share of these cookies, but I had to sneak some away for Mommy too!  I like to sit by myself for a few minutes in the afternoon, in the small amount of time that scyncts up between naps and bus stops, when the house is quiet and drink my cup of coffee.  I decided to add the double chocolate fudge nibblers to this little routine, and oh my!  How sweet life is during that snip it of me time!
I’m also thinking these will be a perfect addition to our s’mores tray while camping this year!  Skipping the graham cracker and replacing it with these fudge dipped cookies sounds like a bit of paradise to me on a summer night around the fire.  I’m sure the munchkins will love the new twist on our favorite summer time treat!
While my family has loved Mrs. Fields sense I was a child, now for the first time Mrs. Fields Nibblers are available at grocery stores, how convenient is that!  They are available in flavors such as   Milk Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, and Double Chocolate Fudge.  All three of these flavors are delicious like everything Mrs. Fields, however the Double Chocolate Fudge is my families favorite.
