Few Favorites Friday-September 23rd

1. Caramel apples

This was a favorite snack AND activity for this week.  All the boys got involved and the resulting apples were amazingly delicious.  Got the recipe & idea from Pinterest. Here is the link for Apple Pie Caramel Apple.

Need: green apples, bag of caramel, white chocolate chips or candy melts, cinnamon sugar.

Steps: sticks in apples, unwrap caramel, melt caramel, dip in caramel, cool in fridge, dip in melted chocolate and then in cinnamon sugar, back in fridge.

**Important: Before you eat the apple take it out of fridge for at least 15 minutes…otherwise it is impossible to chew. Also recommend cutting into slices. **

2. Chooze shoes

I took the boys to my favorite hair salon for all their haircuts (including my youngest’s first “real” haircut). The place I take them is in the back of a Stride Rite store. As we were leaving we discovered the best shoes! Chooze shoes

 My kids usually only have one pair of crocs & one pair of running shoes. We decided to get these for my oldest for his days out of school & for church (his only running shoes are his not-so- cute black uniform shoes).

The company was started by a mom of 3 kids. The fun part is that the shoes aren’t an identical pair! (if u look closely at his shoes one is blue & one is green) so fun! They even have shoes for moms that I’m considering getting. They aren’t the cheapest shoes but 100% of the profits go to anti-poverty programs & loans. Can’t argue with that! Check them out.

3. Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuchino 

All I have to say is “YUM”. It was all I could do to stop drinking and take this picture. it.is. that. good.

4. Fun videos (Faith & laughing baby)

Saw both these videos this week & loved them. The best part is my boys loved them and we watched them over & over again. The first is hilarious & I started crying when I watched it thinking about how we’ll get to experience the cute baby phase again soon. The second was a short movie made by a good friend of mine (her husband actually). It’s her kiddos re-enacting the good Samaritan story…great conversation starter for you with your kids.


5. Social Media & Generous friends

I know that Facebook has been all wonky lately…but I’m a fan this week. I posted a need for a friend and within 4 hours my Facebook friends stepped in and met the need. That day friends stopped by my house to drop off baby gear.  I actually had more people offer to donate items than what was originally needed. Amazing!! This is the load of wonderful things I was able to deliver to my friend who just had a baby this week. To God be all the glory!!

What were some of your favorites this week? I would really love to hear about them!! (write them in the comments section)

  1. My favorite this week is trial-sized anti-bacterial hand gel paired with the rubber holder that you can attach to the handle of a lunchbox at Bath and Body Works. I can’t expect our teacher to get 22 kids’ hands washed before lunch time, so this puts the matter into our own hands (pun intended). Bath and Body offers very kid-friendly “flavors” and the holder presents it in a way that the kids can’t possibly forget before they unzip their box. The only problem is other kids wanting to use it too, but we’re willing to share!

    • great idea holly!! i’ve been tempted multiple times to snag one of those cute little holders…especially the glittery ones. Next time i’m at bath & body I’ll have to snag one. I’ve dug around in my purse for that little bottle of sanitizer enough times that i think it would be totally worth it. Love the idea of putting on the lunch box!

    • thanks jenilee! just clicked over to your blog. I grew up in Indy & used to live in Chicago so I loved seeing your pics of Chicago. You and your hubby look really familiar. Did either of you go to Taylor University? just curious! Thanks for stopping by! =)
