What I made from Pinterest this week-Sloppy Joes

Every week I look at Pinterest for ideas on dinners/lunches.  I wanted to share what I made this week and what I thought about it.

If you want the recipe then go HERE to get it!  Need to give the original poster credit!

Now did we like it....it was great but we all said it needed 2 pieces of bread but everyone LOVED the meat mixture.  I usually buy the Sloppy Joes seasoning packet but I liked this taste of this much better.  So next I will make the meat mixture but have some good ol tasty buns ready!

My son is playing the TROMBONE!

OMG...he came home so excited about his new instrument! When I saw it I was OMG what did he get himself into!  He loves it and all day was outside blowing on it.  At first he sounded like he was farting but now he sounds much better.  I can't wait to see him in concert at his school.  This instrument is brand new so I hope he takes better care of it than he does his room.  This thing is HUGE though and puts a big bummer on our bike riding on WED/FRI because he can't carry that and bike ride at the same time.

So my head has been thinking of ways to get them to school, tomorrow we will take the bus but we can't do that every day because PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION is expensive!  It will cost me $10 to get them to school and myself back- shaking my head!  $10 in my car would get me to school and back all week I bet!  My hubby needs to get his truck fixed or sell it!  Ok rant over!

What instrument does you child play and do they like it?

Kmart Big Layaway Giveaway- I want to WIN!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kmart for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Christmas is creeping up very fast and I need to start shopping now!  I have several people to get holiday gifts for but my kids are the most important.  I want to get them items they will use and not just for a couple days either.  But items like that tend to cost a bit much and most of the time I can't afford to pay it all at one time.  So this year I'm going to be using Kmart's free layaway plan.

Kmart_Logo_B&W.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)
They both want a Nintendo 3DS but I can't afford 2 of them so I'm thinking about putting 1 of the 3DS on layaway and that can be their BIG GIFT.

Check out how other stores stack up to Kmart's Layaway Plan~

EXCITING NEWS: KMART is also doing a giveaway Kmart's Big Layaway Giveaway one layaway giveaway per store per week from 9/9/12 through 11/17/12.  

How cool is that!  I'm keeping fingers crossed- that would be a wonderful gift for me!!!
BLG_Logo_Horizontal.jpg (3 documents, 3 total pages)
How to ENTER:
1.  Go to a Kmart and put something on layaway.
2.  Go to  www.kmart.com/layaway  and put something on layaway
3. To enter without putting an item on layaway, or making any purchase, handprint your name, address, day and evening phone numbers, email address and date of birth on a 3″ x 5″ piece of paper and mail it in an envelope with postage paid to “The Big Layaway Giveaway” Department: 589028 c/o Online Store  P.O. Box 5046, Kalamazoo, MI 49003-5046

Toe Juice Review

My Review~  I have to say the name throws you off- I was huh- Toe Juice really but hey it WORKS!  I wish I had pictures to show you but Lil Mama didn't want me to take them of her.  Lil Mama picks at scabs and is always finding something wrong on her skin.  So this product was a savior for us. Wow it cleared up old scabs she kept picking at on her legs. Also she had a little rash on her neck from a cheap necklace and guess what..all cleared up in a day!  I highly recommend this product if you have any of the symptoms below.  I also love the smell- it smells a bit like Listerine.  I put it on my heels because I'm in flip flops all the time and you know it gets a bit rough back there.  

Of course PinkMama gives this product a 2 THUMBS UP!

From Site~

In 1970, Royce Garner, a high school science teacher in Boise, Idaho, produced his first batch of Toe Juice®. His endeavor began when his infant son had flaking, dry, cracked feet. The many lotions and creams were ineffective and messy. So Royce did some research, went to his lab, and came out with a revolutionary new product. Not only did it fix and prevent further complications with his son's feet, but over the years many friends, family, and acquaintances have benefited from the strength of Royce's Toe Juice®. Those who benefited from the fast drying liquid, often encouraged Royce to take it public.

As Toe Juice® is a head to toe skin care product, we have received testimonials from people about its effectiveness for a large variety of uses. While this is no means meant to be an exhaustive list, below are the most common categories Toe Juice® is used for.
  • Acne
  • Athletes foot
  • Cold Sores
  • Diabetic
  • Eczema
  • Foot Problems
  • Ichthyosis Psoriasis
  • Insect Bites
  • Jock Itch
  • Jungle Rot
  • Misc. Skin Irritation
  • Rashes
  • Ringworm
  • Warts
Below is a list of some stores selling Toe Juice®.
  1. United States
  2. Walgreens
  3. Bed Bath Beyond
  4. Jewel-Osco
  5. Albertsons
  6. Supervalu
  7. McKesson
  8. ACME
  9. Broulims
  10. Kerr Drug
  11. hi-school pharmacy
  12. Fruth pharmacy
  13. Target Pharmacy
  14. Walmart Pharmacy
Want to connect with TOE JUICE:

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Wisk Deep Clean REVIEW- 2 Thumbs Up

Experience a deeper clean in your laundry with Wisk® Deep Clean™. Wisk® Deep Clean™ cleans beyond visible stains, attacking trapped body oils and sweat. Body oils and sweat are the #1 soil in your laundry and can stay trapped in your clothes, even after washing. Wisk® Deep Clean™ penetrates deep inside the fabric, cleaning beyond visible stains, to seek out and attack trapped body oils and sweat.

The variant is safe for both Standard and High Efficiency (HE) Machines.

Wisk Deep Clean laundry detergent was voted #1 Product of the Year in the laundry category in a survey of over 50,000 consumers by TNS.


I've always been a fan of WISK and so when I was able to review the DEEP CLEAN detergent I was super excited.  Don't laugh but I love the smell of fresh detergent on clothes.  

The first thing I did was wash blankets and rugs around the house.  They came out sooooo clean and smelled so fresh.  I loved that.  Now I had some very dirty clothes from my son and I'm not a big fan of bleach so instead of washing them in bleach I tried them in the Deep Clean Wisk. Bam...they came out so clean!  I give WISK DEEP CLEAN 2 THUMPS UP!

If you want to TRY WISK DEEP CLEAN- here is a $1 off coupon

Check out WISK website for more info!

Laundry you SUCK!

OMG really how does my laundry pile get so huge.  I swear on Friday I was caught up then BAM I have at least 10 loads now.  I've been working so no one else does laundry around here so it's my job I guess.   Laundry is pain...just saying.  What I love the most is when my family asks about a particular item they want to wear and who do they come running to- ME.  I say.. do it yourself but they just stare at me with this look as WTF do our own clothes, huh!  Putting the clothes behind your door doesn't help me wash them that's for sure- bringing them down to the laundry helps.  Ok vent over- now time to do laundry!
