Awesome Mini Projector

This post may be sponsored.  Affiliate links may be included. 

I found this awesome mini projector on Amazon. I was looking for something small for work and home.  For work I already have a mounted projector, but I needed something for occasional use and something portable to take to other classrooms. This one is perfect and was only  $69 with Prime shipping.   My daughter took it for now until I need it for work. She doesn't have a TV, but we recently gave her an older laptop to use. She loves watching kid shows on Netflix. We hooked this up and now she is watching movies with Bubby like they are at a theater.

It is vey lightweight and easy to plug in and transport. We love it.

Looks Great!  we didn't take off her puppy sticker decals and the wall isn't white  

My kids definitely love it. I'll definitely using it at work. It's also great for vacations if you need a tv or want to take the theater with you type experience.

Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs. Digital Kitchen Scale Review

This post may be sponsored or contain affiliate links.

I receive this kitchen scale to review. I have been looking to get a kitchen scale for a while now so this was perfect for us. I will admit I do use it for weighing packages for the mail as well as weighing food. It works great for this double purpose. I have not had any issues with accuracy or else I would be charged more for postage.  I've used it for several things.  One item was over 4lbs.  It was a little hard to see the weight because my box was huge, but this scale isn't meant for that.  I love this scale. It's small lightweight and accurate.  I can think of lots of uses for it.




Here is information provided on the scale.  It comes in 3 colors (white and red as well as the blue/teal above).

  • Industry exclusive scale features Microban antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  • Boasts 2 touch sensitive buttons, 4 high precision GFX sensors, a large Blue LCD screen, and a capacity range of 0.05 oz to 18 lbs or 1 g to 8000 g.
  • Award-winning thin design is infused with Microban antimicrobial technology to provide an added level of protection that won't ever wear away.
  • Precision Tare button subtracts the container weight for the net ingredient weight; easy Unit button instantly converts between lb/oz, g, fl.oz., ml.
  • Includes 2 Lithium batteries and an easy-access battery compartment (no screwdriver needed). NOTE: remove the battery insulating strip before attempting to use the device.
Find it on Amazon HERE.  The price varies from $18 - 28

Custom Twin Shirt Giveaway!

I'll admit I never wanted twins.  It just seemed too overwhelming.  It was wished on me more than once and every time I said "No way!"  I'm the one that felt guilty when I told a mom that maybe she was pregnant with "one of each" because her son and daughter wanted a boy and a girl.  She ended up with twin boys.  Twins are not easy, but I'm glad I have my sweet twin boys.  Well they aren't always sweet, but twins are a whole new experience that you just don't quite get with singletons. It's double the crazy and double the love.  Now, I wish twins on everyone!  :)

I've loved seeing twin shirts and decided to make my own. I'm still new at making them and don't sell them, but thought I'd giveaway a set to another twin mom.  I have a navy blue 2t shirt set or a red 3t shirt set available to giveaway.  I'm willing to negotiate the shirt size etc and design, but they will take a little longer to ship.  I can also change the design a bit.  Ie Pink dinosaurs for girls.  I may be open to a new design as well.

Ozeri Touch II 18 lbs. Digital Kitchen Scale

This post may be sponsored or may contain affiliate links.



I've been wanting to get a kitchen scale for awhile now.  Apparently, eyeing the amount of food you are eating when trying to diet isn't the most effective way.  I'm excited to try out this scale, but I'm a little worried about learning how much I am really eating.  It will be interesting for sure.  I also plan on using it to weigh mail to find correct postage. 

Here is information provided on the scale.  It comes in 3 colors (white and red as well as the blue/teal above).

  • Industry exclusive scale features Microban antimicrobial product protection that helps prevent the growth of stain and odor-causing bacteria.
  • Boasts 2 touch sensitive buttons, 4 high precision GFX sensors, a large Blue LCD screen, and a capacity range of 0.05 oz to 18 lbs or 1 g to 8000 g.
  • Award-winning thin design is infused with Microban antimicrobial technology to provide an added level of protection that won't ever wear away.
  • Precision Tare button subtracts the container weight for the net ingredient weight; easy Unit button instantly converts between lb/oz, g, fl.oz., ml.
  • Includes 2 Lithium batteries and an easy-access battery compartment (no screwdriver needed). NOTE: remove the battery insulating strip before attempting to use the device.

Frozen Peanut Butter Jelly Sandwhiches - time saver

It's almost back to school time for my kids.  We are sad summer was so short this year. Teachers actually went back last week which meant daycare for my kids.  That also means packed lunches. This is a time saver that I've used for years and is much cheaper than buying the frozen pb&j sandwiches in the store.

 I make a whole bunch of pb&j sandwiches ahead of time and freeze them. I put a little peanut butter on both pieces of bread to keep the jelly from making it soggy.  Put them in Ziploc bags.  I spoon out a little jelly on each and then spread them ocer the peanut butter.  Place them in the sandwich bag and freeze. So easy. I like to make a full loaf at a time.  I even stack 4-5 Sandwhiches and cut them in half at the same time. My kids love them and never complained about them tasting any different.

My friend taught me the heal trick. When using the heal piece put that on the inside so the what part is on the outside.  Why didn't I think of that?








You can also do other sandwiches too. Ham and cheese etc.  My dauhhter has decided she's over pb&j so i made her salami and cheese.  They defrost pretty quick so they are ready by lunch time.

Groupon has Coupons!

Posts may be sponsored or contain affiliate links. All opinions are my own.

I love Groupon.  I've tried new places that I may not have known about if it weren't for Groupon and have gotten great deals.  With 4 kids now every little bit helps.  It's not cheap going out and doing things as a family.  I recently found out that Groupon now has Coupons for SO many stores and businesses.  I try to remember to look for coupons before I check out somewhere.  Now I can check Groupon.  I can't tell you how many times I've thought to check for coupons before checking out and saved money on shipping or items I was already going to spend money on.   

These are just SOME of the places that have coupons.  


School is coming soon (too soon for this teacher) and my kids need new shoes.  I was shopping Famous Footwear  and got a great deal (buy 1 get one 50% and Free Shipping) on good quality shoes for my kids.  I need to buy 4 pairs now!  Plus shoes for me. Thank goodness for sales and deals and Groupon Coupons!

I do most of my shopping online because taking 4 kids (twin 18mos olds) is not usually very fun.  It starts with trying to find a double cart.  Twin Mom problems.  If I do go in store I prefer places like Target.  Groupon Coupon has 63 Target coupons listed. I don't even think that includes all the cartwheel deals.  I love getting amazing deals at Target.

It even has coupons for Amazon!  Let's just say.  I buy a TON on Amazon.  I'm pretty sure we get an Amazon package every week or more.  We love Amazon SO much that we even used it while out of town on vacation.  We learned they deliver to Amazon lockers and we could pick up items needed (not available in stores close by) near our hotel.  It was awesome!

If you are shopping for anything, check out Groupon Coupons before you go or check out to save some $$$.

Low Carb Cheesecake in the InsantPot - Keto, Atkins Friendly

I'm not the best cook.  I'm a need a simple recipe that's very easy to throw together quickly type of cooker.  I made low carb cheesecake in my Instant Pot - twice (so no expert here)


First you need this.  I've heard you can make meatloaf in this type of pan as well.  I haven't tried it yet.





The simplified instructions.

  • 2 - 8oz pks of Cream Cheese - room temp
  • 2 Cups + 2 tablespoons of Swerve - I used confectioners type because that's what I had.  Recipe said Granular
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 Eggs Room Temp
  • 1/4 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Prepare pan - line inside of pan with parchment paper keep from leaking (I didn't do this the first time and it was fine).  Put foil on the bottom of the outside of the pan (I did do this the first time).  Lightly grease inside.

Mix Cream Cheese, Vanilla, Swerve, and Whipping Cream.  Add eggs one at a time and mix just enough - don't over beat.

Pour mixture into pan.  Lay a paper towel on top not touching the mixture and cover with foil.

Put 1.5 cups of water in pot.  Put in the metal steamer rack.  Place pan on top.  Some people create a "sling" with foil to help pull it out.  I did for the 2nd and not the first.  It didn't seem much easier with.  Place pan on top.

Set Instant Pot to Manual 38min High Pressure.  When done let pressure release on it's own (natural pressure release) for 18min.

Refrigerate for 8-24 hours.

I put sugar free caramel and cool whip on top.  SO good!

If you don't have an instant pot, I have this one.  I got it on sale during Prime Day which is coming up on July 11, 2017 this year.
