Edible bubbles?

My child loves to watch Grav3YardGirl‘s Does This Thing Really Work? videos on YouTube. When he’s feeling sleepy or in need of a cuddle, he’ll climb into my lap and ask, “Mommy, can we watch a Bunny video?”

It was one of these videos that introduced us to the idea of Candylicious edible bubbles. A whole five seconds into that video, he was telling me he wanted grape flavor.

It took me a while to find them, but I tracked the bubble machine down on Amazon and even found some refill kits.

I was skeptical, even after watching Bunny’s review…But this thing is actually pretty great! We spent an hour or so blowing cherry bubbles all over the back yard, and I managed to catch a few…they actually DO taste just like cherry! O’s strategy was to stick his face right in front of the machine, and he caught a lot of bubbles, but he didn’t like getting the bubble solution all over his face.

You get two packets of bubble solution with the machine (cherry and grape), and refills are available in packs of three flavors. The packet of cherry lasted a lot longer than I thought it would, and we even got a little more mileage out of it by pouring a little water in at the end.

I’m not sure if you’re supposed to do that. Maybe don’t be like me.

The machine takes 4 AA batteries and you’ll need a little screwdriver to get the back panel off. I picked up an eyeglass repair kit that’s super handy for these things.

I love this thing. As long as it holds up, I can see it providing hours of summer fun for my boy. In fact, I may not have to make a dessert for the rest of the summer. Dinner’s over? Go outside and play with your bubble machine!

Just don’t drink the bubble solution…I’m pretty sure it says specifically not to on the box.

You can order one of your own by clicking here. Or, just check out the different flavors and tell me which one you’d like to try!

What’s in my purse?

So I noticed that an old post of mine was getting some traffic…I’m not sure why my  What’s in my bag? post from a hundred years ago was getting views, but I thought it would be fun to do an updated version in video form.

Easy FlatOuts Flatbread Pizzas

My boy and I used to have pizza and movie nights on my paydays…I generally don’t feel like cooking when I get home from work (I get up at 4:30 am on workdays, after all), and we discovered a place that would bring us delicious pizza AND movies. We’d watch O’s movie while having a pizza picnic in the living room.

Then I started the 21 Day Fix. I figured pizza night could be my cheat day, but after eating well for two weeks, pizza just didn’t make me feel all that great. We haven’t had a pie delivered since, but I didn’t want to give up on our pizza nights. Wanting to make my own, but not really wanting to make the crust from scratch after coming home from work, I started looking for crust options that wouldn’t ruin my hard work…but still tasted good.

I found FlatOuts at the grocery store and decided to give them a shot. Check out the video below to see how it went!

Please excuse my hair and lack of makeup. I did a workout, then spent most of the day trying to declutter. Turns out, we have a TON of stuff to get rid of. I’m also in desperate need of a haircut, but I just haven’t had time.

Have you tried FlatOuts?

March Ipsy bag video!

Can you guys believe it’s March already?! Spring is so, so close… I think here we’re going to have a coldish weekend, but temps are steadily rising. I’m so excited for spring that yesterday, I bought O a little bat and baseball set…So basically, expect a post in the near future about how I got beaned in the eye by my mini Babe Ruth.

Signs of spring have been everywhere…Including my mailbox! I was really excited about my Ipsy bag this month, and so far everything has been a big hit. Check out the video for the full scoop:

As always, I want to know what you got in your Ipsy bag! Let me know in the comments. I was a little sad that I didn’t get the Living Proof dry shampoo. If you got it (or if you’ve tried it), let me know what you think of it.
