Spring Cleaning

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

It's now officially spring!  Winter is finally over.  Too bad that doesn't mean the weather doesn't just immediately feel like spring.  Along with the warm weather that comes with spring, spring brings on spring cleaning.  I actually started a little early this year because I wanted to get my life organized before the baby comes.  

What do you do to spring clean?  Do you deep clean every inch of your house?  Do you go through all of your closets and get rid of things and organize the whole thing?  

I tend to get on a organizing kick come spring.  It might be because every single New Year's resolution is to be more organized.  This year I have been trying to tackle the closest, get rid of clothes that we don't wear and use lots of containers with labels.  I feel with kids, if there is a place for everything, then there is a better chance that they will want to put it there. 

Not only am I trying to be organized but I'm trying to be a better cleaner.  Not just for spring cleaning, but as a whole.  One of my absolute products to use is Clorox ®  Disinfecting Wipes.

I just love them and I love giving them to my kids to help me kids.  It's just nice to know that they are getting rid of germs as they help!  They are the simple solution for all of my household needs.  I can use them on pretty much every surface so I only need to use those for when I'm cleaning the house.  We love to be able to wipe it down and then just throw them away!

Now you know I live far away from a big town, so in the little town I go grocery shopping in I can get my spring cleaning supplies at Dollar General.  They have great prices and great brands! They have products like Cotonelle®, Tilex® and more!

 

Right now they have a contest going right now, to learn more about the details visit their site.

Happy Spring Cleaning to you!

HAPPY EASTER!!!  I hope that you had a wonderful holiday weekend!  I love Easter, it's nice to have a fun holiday that isn't in the winter.  We actually had some nice weather so we could enjoy our Easter egg hunts outside.  Here's the best picture we could get in out Sunday best :)


Just a quick update on me and my pregnancy.  Today I am 35 weeks.  That means that I could have a baby anywhere from 2 weeks to 4 weeks (I'll make sure they induce me at 39 weeks).  Things are definitely starting to get a little more real and crazy.  Tomorrow (Monday) I have an appointment to see if the baby is still breech.  There is a good chance that it is, so we will see what happens next.  I would love any prayers on getting this baby to turn.... I really don't want to have to do c-section!




Wow what a week last week!   There were so many great ideas!! I love so many of them and really enjoyed going through and looking!  Thanks for the inspiration and motivation!

Tyson Any’tizer Wyngz Wrap Recipe

You all know that I love simple and easy, right?  I like simple crafts and I like my recipes to be simple too.  I don’t love spending hours in the kitchen making a meal that takes 10 minutes for my kids to devour.  I love things that take 30 minutes, but are super yummy too.  We especially love simple chicken meals at our house. This recipe is just that, simple, quick and super yummy!

Tyson has some new any’tizers out. Sweet garlic glazed and Mango habanero flavored. You can buy these at Walmart.

They are made with white meat (woohoo, I cannot stand dark meat).  And they are boneless, so they are super easy to eat.

I made both kinds using the oven.  They were covered with sauce!  I hate it when you eat a chicken wing and you can't even taste the flavor because it all getst baked away.

What's great about these boneless wings is that you can make them as a quick snack.  Pop them in the oven or microwave and serve them with ranch or your favorite dip.  I'm thinking we are going to be eating these for lunch quite a bit.  Or when we have a sports party, I know they will be a big it.   My kids loved the sweet garlic ones!  They will be great for their after school snack.

Not only are they are a great snack, but I made them for dinner.  Super easy and quick and we loved them!  I just put the Mango habanero ones in a tortilla with some rice, cheese, ranch, avocado and tomatoes.

It was so yummy!  My husband liked it so much that he made himself another wrap!  There was just the right amount of kick in the chicken too.  Such good flavor.

I loved how simple and quick these were.  They have a variety of Any'tizer wyngz too, so I'm excited to try out some more.  We made a wrap with the mango habanero ones but I think that the sweet garlic one would be super yummy as some kind of Chinese dish, with rice and soy sauce. 

After trying these, everyone is going to be to saying #GiveMeWyngz
