A Delicious Addition to Your Next Party: Dips Cake Pops



 Thank you to Dips Cake Pops for providing me with product in exchange for my honest review. All thoughts are my own.

Having a party and want to wow your guests with something sweet? How about cake pops? My family loves cake pops. From the very first time we tried them, we were hooked. Cake pops are moist, delicious balls of cake and frosting that are then covered in chocolate or candy melts, and decorated. A few years ago, I tried my hand at making cake pops, just because I wanted to see if I could do it. I quickly found that it's an involved process (it took me two days from start to finish) and that while they tasted great, it would be the kind of thing that I would only make for a special occasion or for a family request. I knew that I wanted to incorporate cake pops into Baby S' 1st birthday celebration, but that I did not have the time or the patience to make them myself.

Tasty Tuesday- A Change in My Meal Planning Routine

Toward the end of March, my sister and I took a coupon class with The Crazy Coupon Chick, and I was really impressed with what I had learned. In fact, I was so impressed that I actually took notes, and one of those notes was to challenge myself to save even more money when grocery shopping by going through store ads and coupons and then meal planning.

Making Life Sweeter with Mrs. Freshley's treats #review


Thank you to Mrs. Freshley's for providing me with samples for review. All thoughts shared are my own.


My family really loved tearing into this box from Mrs. Freshley's.  It was full of yummy goodies.  We received Blueberry Muffins, Chocolate Chip Muffins, Banana Nut Muffins and Cake Crisps.  I wasn't able to get pictures of anyone enjoying them because they got packed in lunchboxes and gone pretty quick.  I did enjoy the Cake Crisps myself.  They were little cookies that tasted like I was eating a piece of chocolate cake.  I loved that they were crispy.  They were a delicious snack.  Aiden and Chris enjoyed the muffins.  Aiden said they were so good and the crumbles melted in your mouth.  His favorite was the Chocolate Chip, of course!  He loves anything chocolate.  We really enjoyed these yummy treats from Mrs. Freshley's and will purchase some in the future to enjoy!

The Delay of God Does Not Mean the Denial of God #MondayMotivation

Isaiah 40:29

We had a wonderful worship service yesterday at our church! We were reminded by our pastor that the weak, weary, and faint are the ones who are able to experience the power of our Holy God!

Pastor Scott also reminded us of this:

The delay of God does not mean the denial of God!
