Family Fun All Year Long with Knott's Berry Farm 2015 Season Pass

Knotts Berry farm Season Pass
We have had such a blast having a Knott's Berry Farm Season Pass this year.
It was such an amazing value and there were so many perks to being
season pass holders, that I can't wait to buy our 2015 passes and have another
year of fun as a family.
It's the perfect time to pick up a Knott's season pass because it is at the
lowest price of the season!

During the summer, one perk was early entry into Camp Snoopy.
It was so awesome, because we would show up, 
ride every ride in Camp Snoopy (sometimes twice), and then head home
before the day camps and vacationers arrived.

We also enjoyed the food and merchandise discounts that come with a Knott's Season pass.
During the summer we were hooked on the cold, sweet treats that you can
only get at Knott's Berry Farm, like the Boysenberry soft serve!!

And don't forget that Camp Snoopy has been completely remodeled with 
three new rides, a new look, and lots of fun to be had by all -
including a the new character meet and greet location, Beagle Scout Headquarters.

Having a season pass is awesome because you had lots and lots of opportunities
for pictures with your favorite Peanuts characters - like Snoopy and Woodstock!
Each time we went to Knott's this year we would snag a picture
with one of the Peanuts gang with minimal wait time.
The kids loved it!

And don't forget all the seasonal fun that Knott's Berry Farm has to offer
throughout the year - like Knott's Berry Bloom and Knott's Scary Farm!
Having a season pass makes it easy to enjoy all Knott's has to offer.

I mean, seriously, look at this boysenberry funnel cake we got during 
Knott's Berry Bloom!
Yum! Yum! Yum! And only available at Knott's Berry Farm.

For as low as 9 easy payments of $8.50, you can enjoy a year of 
Knott's Berry Farm with your family too!
And don't forget to check into adding the All Season Dining Plan
to your season pass too.
For only 9 easy payments of $11 you can get 2 meals a day
during each and every visit in 2015.

Some of the perks of being a season pass holder include:
  • Dining Discounts
  • Merchandise Discounts
  • No Blackout Dates
  • Bring A Friend Discount Days
  • Special invites to Passholder only events
  • Exclusive Season Pass Holder Collector Pins

Parent's Choice Diapers and Being the Third Baby

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

Hi. This is Grace.
She wants me to tell you all about what it's like being the third baby.
Some people think it's all about late night feedings, diapers, and pacifiers,
but she knows that it's about so much more.

By the third baby mom and dad have wised up a bit and are much more
conscious about prices and products.
Gone are the days when you just buy something because it's cute or popular.
When you're the third baby, mom and dad want value, quality, and savings
all wrapped up into one product.

walmart parents choice diapers

Enter Parent's Choice private label diapers from Walmart.
They are now more absorbent, have the rad wetness indicator, and will save you
$240 per year versus other national brands.
Find out if your local Walmart that carry the new and improved Parent's Choice diapers
by checking out this list!

When you're the third baby, you have to learn to roll with the punches.
Big brother and sister are busy little people, not to mention a social media mama,
so diaper changes could happen at any place,
at any time, and most of the time and most of the time not at home.
So, we have to make sure the diaper clutch is stocked with diapers at all times.



When you're the third baby, a diaper change can happen on a blanket,
on a park table at the park while waiting for big brother to get out of school!

When you're the third baby, a diaper change can happen while your big sister 
is putting a Merida wig on you so she can involve you in her dress-up extravaganza.

When you're the third baby, a diaper change can happen while you're
still in your jammies at 11:00am and it's time to leave for kindergarten pick-up.

When you're the third baby, a diaper change can happen on your mom's lap
at a media event because that's how we roll.

 When you're the third baby, it also means most days
 you go to kindergarten drop-off in your PJs.

When you're the third baby, you take a lot of naps in your stroller or car seat on your
way to dance or water polo and it feels like you always wake up some place different.

But being the third baby doesn't just mean diaper changes in strange places or naps on the go.

When you're the third baby, it also means you get extra snuggle time with mom
and naps in her arms while big brother and sister are gone to school.

When you're the third baby it means sister bonding time over movie
while mom makes dinner instead of chilling by yourself because there's
no one else around like when your brother was a baby.

When you're the third baby, it also means fun games with your awesome big brother.
He even lets you pull his hair just to hear you giggle!

Being the third baby comes lots of on-the-go diaper changes, 
but it also comes with perks for the baby and the mama.
There is lots and lots of love to go around and never a shortage of people
around that want to hold you.
And there are great money saving products like Parent's Choice diapers from Walmart
to make having a third baby in the home even more awesome than it already is!

So, if you like saving $240 a year, then print your Parent's Choice diapers coupon,
head to your local Walmart, and join the 3 out of 4 moms that agree that
Parent's Choice diapers are better than their current diaper brand of choice.
See for yourself: save money, live better!

On-the-Go with Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars {GIVEAWAY}

Disclosure: The Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bar samples, Target gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Skinnygirl. All opinions are my own.


School is back in session and my schedule is CRAZY!
 I am all over the place and there rarely seems like there is time to
sit and eat and make good food and snack choices.
I feel like I am running around with my head cut off and making it
up as I go along - never really planning more than 5 minutes in the future.
 Let's see what happens here before Noon on Thursdays:

3:00am - up to feed the baby
6:00am - to feed the baby
7:00am - up to get everyone ready for school
7:40am - out the door
8:30am - back home, feed the baby, put her down for a nap
9:00am - shower, get ready, write, answer emails, squeeze in a chore
10:45am - get the baby up to feed her before kinder pick-up
11:00am - leave for kinder pick-up
11:20am - kinder pick-up
11:30am - run errands, squeeze in a load of laundry, play with the baby,
read to the kindergartener


Phew!
I'm exhausted just writing that all down and that's not the half of it!
It's no wonder that I find myself at the park or sitting in the car waiting,
starving, and woefully unprepared, digging to the bottom of my diaper bag hoping
that I find a lone bag of fruit snacks or some crackers to tide me over til I can get home.
Or maybe wandering through the grocery store throwing chips and chocolate
into the cart because I'm craving salt and chocolatey.

It's just not good!
Enter Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars!
They are all the things you want 
- under 200 calories, an excellent source of protein and fiber -
AND they are yummy!
 They are also gluten free, Kosher, and contain no artificial sweeteners or flavors.


You can find Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars at nationwide retailers including
Target, as well as online, in three different flavors:

Dark Chocolate Pretzel
Chocolate Peanut Butter with Sea Salt
Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate

I love them because I can keep one or two in my bag and know that 
no matter where I find myself during the day, or what I am doing, that I have
a tasty, healthy snack option with me.
It keeps me from reaching for that unfinished bag of gummies
or the left over pretzels from the kindergartener's lunch.

My favorite flavor is the Dark Chocolate Pretzel.
Seriously so indulgent and it it's the spot when the chocolatey/salty
craving hits me about 2:45pm and I'm at the park with friends.


Not only does Skinnygirl make delicious nutrition bars, they also
have a fun website call Skinnygirl Snack Swap.
Here you can enter in what you're craving and the playful tool will ask
your favorite snack and then it personally picks a healthier option
that matches that craving.
Then, you can share your snack swap on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram!

Like I was craving something chocolatey and salty, 
and instead of reaching for those chocolate covered potato chips,
the Skinnygirl Snack Swap suggested that I try Popcorn with Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate.
