Charging Basket

Ooo...I am one happy camper today. My Peterboro charging basket arrived!  My phone and camera batteries will be tucked safely away and organized. I simply love their baskets.
You can order yours here Peterboro Basket.  American made in Vermont.


Hershey's Air Delight

Over the summer I discovered that Hershey's came out with their own air bar. 
Which meant that I just had to get my hands on one and give it a try.
It is very similar to the Aero Bar (European) which you can find a review of the mint bar here

You see all those cute little bubble holes inside of the chocolate bar?
 These holes tend to give the chocolate a nice light texture when you bite into it and eat it.
I did not think that the holes were as light as those in the Aero bar but were quite plentiful.
I did enjoy eating this chocolate bar (it's chocolate for heavens sake) but I must admit that I still prefer the Aero bar. There is just something about the other bar that this bar is missing.
My kiddos however adore the this candy bar and the cute little Air Delight Hershey Kisses.
We now have a permanent container of the Air Delight Kisses in the house.
 That is something for these two - they are not big candy/chocolate consumers at all.
Pick up a bar or a tiny bag of the kisses and give them a try.
You just might find a new favorite chocolate bar. 


Crockpot Beef Stroganoff

My all time favorite meal is Beef Stroganoff.
I always, always had it on my birthday and pretty much still do. :)
I really did not feel like cooking all-day-long, so I went on the search for a tasty looking crockpot recipe.
The recipe below was hands down a winner!
Much better than my attempts with canned cream of mushroom soup and too much garlic. *blush*
Nate (oldest & most pickiest eater) could not get enough.
Spence had a nice sized serving.
DH kept raving about the meal.
The meal was so tender and the taste was so flavorful.
Please, try this recipe it will not disappoint one tiny bit.

It's that time of year.....

It's that time of year again...
Apple Picking Time!
We went a bit later this year, it was packed but still a lot of fun.
There is nothing like picking apples in the fall. 



Gosh... I go missing  take a break from blogging and bam! Blogger changes a little bit on me.  New way to see who is visiting, posting and so forth. I can resort back to the old way if I want but hey, I need to get with the times right?
Things have been a whirl wind to say the least since the kiddos arrived back home in late July. I thought by getting the blogger app on my phone would help with keeping you updated on stuff but that has not panned out.  Over the next few weeks I get out some pictures of places we have been over the summer and *blush* last fall (I know really bad) ,  share a few new decorating ideas and share a thought on some new wax I have been using.
Hope everyone has been well and thanks for staying with me. : D

Carribean Scents - Review

Over the summer I made a purchase via Etsy in a store called Caribbean Scents.
I have to say that I am thrilled with everything I purchased.
 It is now September and I am still using the shampoo that I purchased. 
I admit to having really short hair but still! 
My colored locks are enjoying the product, keeping their tint and loving the fragrance.
The tarts I purchased were pineapple and made my room smell like a tropical escape.
I even received two free samples of body products which were fab!
If you are in the mood to try some wonderful products or surround yourself with some great fragrances then give Caribbean Scents a try!
