Meet Our New Puppy! #PetbrosiaFree10LbBag!

We have a new family member.  Isn't she adorable?  Her name is Lucy, and we love her to pieces!  She is the sweetest thing.  She dances for treats, plays fetch, is so soft and cuddly, not to mention absolutely playful.  She brings so much joy to us!  I stumbled across Petbrosia when I was looking for a healthy puppy food for her.  I've ordered Petbrosia twice and have been so happy with them!  The food is perfect for Lucy--it's actually tailor-made to her breed, size, and age.  She has the free-run chicken variety, and there is also grain-free salmon.  They make food for both dogs and cats.  Plus, the super nice people there also send additional goodies along!  


In Lucy's first box of Petbrosia, she received a free bag of puppy cookies which have lasted us a couple weeks.  Every morning, she does a little dance for her cookie and then she eats her breakfast.  After we bless her meal, of course. ;) So far, we haven't paid a penny for Lucy's pet food b/c of the great promos Petbrosia has.  Her first box of food was complimentary for bloggers, while her second 10 lb box was free (even free shipping!) when we signed up for the autofill plan (a plan which will send us a box of food whenever we run out, once again tailor made for Lucy's needs).  Very convenient and affordable!  We love it!

Ezisoul's Super Awesome 5-device USB Charger #HolidayGiftGuide

I had the opportunity to try out this brand new product (it's only been available for a couple of months) and it is pretty awesome, I must say!  It's been kind of a pain lately taking turns charging my kiddos and my devices one after another at the computer usb ports.  Pain.  Not that I realized there was a better way to do it... but there is!  Ezisoul's USB Charger is efficient at charging 5 devices at once.  I'm really happy with it, and it's only about $29 on Amazon with free shipping.  It's perfect for iPads, other tablets, smart phones, super cool flip phones like mine (I know you're envious of my vintage Samsung below; you don't have to pretend otherwise), cameras, gaming consoles, you name it.  

The Ezicharge is safe, functional, and has definitely improved my quality of your life so I've added it to my "Gifts for Dads" section of my Holiday Gift Guide.  Of course, it'd be a totally awesome gift for just about anyone... but my hubby was more excited about this product than any other I've blogged about in ages, so it goes there.  ;)  You all have a happy Thanksgiving and have fun shopping on Black Friday!  As for me, I'll be camping.  Yay!  Excited.  I hate crowded stores.... crowded Internet after camping sounds much more appealing.  Whatever you do, have a blast and I shall "see" you all next week!

Special thanks to the awesome people at Ezisoul for this product review opportunity!

I am so in love with my new heart pendant from Felt Noir.  The heart is black agate with white topaz.  The chain is sterling silver and, I wish you could see it in real life, the chain has more glitter and shimmer to it than any of my other sterling silver necklaces.  It's gorgeous!  The heart is flattened in the back so it lays gently on your chest, and it's the perfect size.  Very classy.

OASAP Jewelry: Pretty in Pink! #Discount

If you've followed my blog any length of time, you must know I shop at OASAP more than any other store.  This time, I decided to try some of their jewelry.   I chose their Nobel Drop Earrings which cost about $9.  So pretty with a gypsy feel.  I love them!  I've been in a pink-wearing mood (it's my favorite color after blue) so I also chose their Sweet Rosette Bracelet Set which also comes in a nice pale green.   This is actually 5 bracelets you can mix and match as you wish and costs just $6.60.  Love these, too.  I'm always happy with my purchases here and excited to see what kinds of sales they'll be having this week for Black Friday!

My Super Easy and Totally Delicious Oreo Cookie MilkSplash Truffles! #Recipe

These are by far the most delicious things I have ever made all by myself and the recipe is soooo easy!  And when you make a batch, you end up with so many more than you (or your family) could possibly eat yourself so that you're absolutely compelled to give them away to unsuspecting people who will eat them and instantly love you more than they did before.  The coolest thing is, by adding Milksplash to the mix, you can totally customize it for a wide variety of tastes like

In all honesty, these make some great budget-friendly Christmas gifts.  Everyone I give them to loves me more after they eat them!

  • 36 Oreo Cookies (do not use Tuxedos or another off-brand--they won't taste nearly as good.  Believe me.  I tried it and my tastebuds were not happy with me.)
  • Package of Instant Chocolate Pudding
  • Package of Milksplash*
  • 1/2 cup of whole milk
  • Package of Chocolate Chips (dark, white, and milk are equally delicious depending on your preference)


1. Put the Oreos (the whole bag!) in the biggest mixing bowl you have.  Crunch them up with whatever kitchen utensil you deem worthy enough for the task.

2. Measure 1/2 cup of milk into a measuring cup.  Squirt in the MilkSplash flavor of your choice. Pour in the pudding mix.  Stir real quick, just until the mixture is wet.  Scoop into the Oreo cookies and stir it up as evenly as possible. Stick in the fridge for 1/2 hour.

3. Get out of the fridge.  With a spoon, scoop up how much you need for about a 1 inch ball.  Roll into a ball.  (This is messy.  That's ok.  You're allowed to get messy.)  Place the balls on a wax-paper lined cookie sheet.  Keep doing this until your sheet is full.  Stick these in the freezer for 1/2 an hour.  (You can't chocolate-coat them if they're not pretty frozen).

4.  Pour half a bag of chocolate chips into a microwave safe dish.  Follow the directions for melting.  I put my chocolate in for about a minute but your microwave and chocolate brand may vary.

5.  Take the chocolate out. Stir it with a spoon. Get your truffles out of the freezer.  Put them in the chocolate, coat them, get them out with the spoon, and put them back where they were.

6. Freeze again.  Get them out later to top them with sprinkles, or a different type of chocolate, or nuts, or whatever your little creative heart desires.  Or just eat them.  They're already amazing.

*You can find Milksplash at Target, Walmart, Harris Teeter, Food Lion, and HEB Stores.
