I’m so excited for the Maleficent movie to hit theaters this May. May 30th, to be exact. Angelina Jolie is beyond perfect for this role. Her mix of elegance and villain will make this movie a smashing success, I’m sure of it! Now to figure out how to score a ticket to the premier! In […]
My husband and boys LOVE the Cascadian Farms Dark Chocolate Granola cereal. LOVE. As in, we buy it in bulk. I enjoy it too, but not to the lengths the boys do. They will choose that over sugary cereals any day and I’m just as happy that they do. Cascadian Farms has a whole line […]
I wanted to name this “Lamb! Bam! Thank You Ma’am” but figured you might not search for a free knitting pattern by that name, so good ol’ google will much prefer I name this a Quick & Easy Knit Sheep Hat Free Pattern. Boring, yes, but probably a smidge more helpful. First things first, how […]
Coco is one spoiled pup. From toys to blankies to treats galore, she’s been spoiled from day one. We go on many adventures together and with my three boys. Often times we go for walks along our neighborhood hiking trails. The boys like to think we are on a safari, looking for wild animals like […]
Hickory Farms Summer Sausage. Quite possibly the best food ever created. In fact, just typing those words, my mouth is watering. For more than 60 years Hickory Farms gifts have been a classic holiday tradition that brings family and friends together. Many Americans have a distinct memory of Hickory Farms at their holiday gatherings; Hickory Farms […]
The kids and I headed to Chili’s for dinner the other day. It’s summer and getting hot here in Denver these days and I don’t like to heat the whole house cooking a ton… So off to Chili’s we went. They have this new Triple Dipper meal where you choose 3 appetizers (all with dips, […]
***** Update! Due to Popular Demand Earthies has added a giveaway of a pair of shoes to my post! Read below for details***** I love heels. I used to wear them all the time, but once I started staying at home with the boys, I slowly slipped into a world of converse sneaks and flip […]
Brady is allergic to damn near everything. What he isn’t allergic to, his GI issues don’t tolerate too well. This makes it super hard to find “normal” foods and snacks he can have. As he’s getting older, he wants to drink what his brothers do, not his rice milk. I caved and bought a bunch […]
Kickboard Scooters are going to make a big splash this spring. They are already making a HUGE splash with my boys. We received a Mini, Maxi and a regular ol’ 2 wheel scooter from Kickboard USA. I was especially excited as it was supposed to start warming up here in Colorado and we had a couple days of 60 degree weather on the horizon. Nothing like letting the boys run off their energy outside instead of with a face in some sort of video game.
Click through to read our review and enter the giveaway where you could WIN TWO scooters for a total prize value of over $200!
First off, who doesn’t love s’mores?! Grahams, chocolate, marshmallows and FIRE!
Second, now add in gourmet, handmade swanky marshmallows from the amazing Park Hyatt Beaver Creek in Avon, Colorado!
Third, now imagine toasting these super delicious marshmallows rain or shine over your very own s’mores maker!
This is what Carter and I did over the weekend. The husband was stuck at work and Thomas was still pretty sick. Brady is allergic to 99% of what makes up a s’more, so it was up to Carter and I to eat it all, and we had a blast doing just that!
Click through to read all about it and enter to win one of FIVE s’mores kits we are giving away.
AND THE WINNER IS… MAURINE! Thanks so much to everyone who entered! If you’ve read this blog before, you know a couple of things. Chewy is allergic to 99% of the world and PopChips saved his snacking! We are huge fans of PopChips. Even my 6 year old will text me pics on Dads phone […]
We host a lot of holiday gatherings. Easter, Thanksgiving and now Christmas Eve. We love filling our home with family and friends. I love all the food too. My waistline proves it these days. HoneyBaked Ham reached out to me this year to offer me a Stress-Free Holiday and I gladly accepted! We often go […]
Thanksgiving and Christmas wouldn’t be the same without a holiday Ham! I can never seem to cook one properly and with all of the sides to prepare, who has time for it?! 99% of the time I leave it up to Honeybaked Ham. In fact, the past 3 Easters and Christmases alone I’ve said forget […]
When I think of Little Debbie, I think back to being 8 years old and sneaking Oatmeal Cream Pies when I thought no one was looking. I thought I was sooooo sneaky! Well now my kids are the ones doing the sneaking! We received a box filled with goodies like the Easter Basket Cakes, Easter […]
I cannot say enough about Growums! I love them. I have a black thumb when it comes to plants. I can even kill fake plants, that’s how talented I am. Until now… I have the magical growing touch! My black thumb is slowly turning brown and then hopefully green! All because of this great product […]
This post is number 1,000. Yup, I’ve had 1,000 things to say and posted them all on the blog over the last few years, typos and all. Some of it was remarkable, some of it was fluff. Some posts were delicious, some were crafty. All of them were awesome. ;) To mark this momentous occasion, […]
What? Did she just call her kids Monsters? Oh no she di’int! In light of the whole “Tiger Mom” story and subsequent internet backlash, no, I’m not actually partaking in abusive parenting, I’m actually rewarding my kids for their good report cards. Have I thoroughly confuzzled you? You see, My Own Monster™ is a new […]
This, and every holiday season, parents are looking to find that perfect gift for their child, Aunts & Uncles want to spoil their nephews and nieces, friends want to be the one who gave your child the gift they just can’t put down. In other words, everyone wants to see a child’s face light up […]
Last week I had my boys invite a few friends over to play with the new Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare. It’s no surprise to any of you by now, that I love what I do. How many of us can say that part of our job is to turn off the computer and go play […]
Well, we are at the half-way mark. We’ve had the revamped site and blog for 6 months now. To celebrate just what it’s become I’m giving away a $50 Target Gift Card to a lucky reader! Target isn’t sponsoring this (although I wish they were!). Although we are relatively new in the blogosphere, we’ve had […]
I’m about to show my age. I was an atari FANATIC as a kid. Pitfall was MY JAM! I even found a pitfall t shirt at Target earlier in the year and may have shrieked and embarrassed my kids. may have. It was a no brainer when I was asked if I wanted to review the new Duo powered Atari […]
News at 11… In the @Colorado_Mom household, there was a violent attack of epic proportions. BIGFOOT snuck up on Spike the Dinosaur and a fight broke out! Wanna know who won? Well, it was a draw. Bigfoot has some stinky attacks, but Spike came back with his monstrous roar and tried to frighten BIGFOOT away. […]
We Love LEGO®! It’s no surprise to anyone that knows us. We’ve been to LEGOLAND in California, many many LEGO® stores and spent hundreds, if not thousands of hours constructing. We are even making brick and minifigure crayons for Valentine’s this year. My boys also love watching The Official LEGO® Channel on youtube and creating their […]
I love Safeway, you know this, I know this, so naturally when they want to send me free food I’m all over that! They didn’t expect me to deliver such amazeballs food, enticing instagrams, witty tweets and an amazing post to show it all off, but I’m sure they’re happy.
