Marie Callender Saved My Dinner

Friday night. Start of the weekend.
Start of relaxation for the working Mommy.

Well that's what I thought.
I went to my Christmas party for work during the day.
Stuffed myself on some sort of chicken and appetizers.
The 18yo decided to "head out" before I got home.
That left me the 5yo & myself to worry about for dinner.

Not so much.
Unexpectedly the Daddy came home.
I had taken nothing out of the freezer.
Mother Hubbard had nothing on me as far as cupboards being bare.

Sadly, the daddy didn't understand why there was no food.
I offered him a pb&j sandwhich.
After all his son was eating it.

He shook his head no.
Told me he wanted something warm & comforting after working outside all week & living on take out.

So my mommy super powers remembered I had 2 Marie Callender's Chicken Pot Pies in the freezer.

The nice thing about Marie Callender's Pot Pies is that you can microwave them.
I asked him if he wanted microwave or oven preparation, because I'm nice like that.
It takes approximately 60 minutes in the oven and only 10 minutes in the microwave.

Mr. I Can't Wait opted for the microwave.
Good choice!

I popped one in, along with some biscuits in the oven.

10 minutes later....dinner was served. (I popped mine in after his...we wouldn't want the Daddy to wait!)

Both of us had the chicken version.
Heaven in a pie.

It was so warm, comforting, good, chock full of veggies, creamy excellent taste...I wanted more but Daddy had already finished his.

Although I wanted more, it was for taste not satisfaction.
Both the Daddy & I were full after eating our pies.

I will say Daddy thought his was a bit salty.
Mine was borderline salty.
Really, that is the only negative comment I can make about the pies.

Not only do the pies taste scrumpdidlyumptious the other great reasons to get Marie Calender's Pot Pies are:

  • With cooler weather moving in, busy moms looking for delicious comfort food for the dinner table can turn to Marie Callender’s Pot Pies.  They are made with no preservatives and can save moms time and energy while warming the kids up after a day of playing in the snow.
  • Marie Callender’s Pot Pies are available for a suggested retail price of $2.10-$2.99.
  • Marie Callender’s meals are available in grocery stores nationwide. Product lines include Complete Meals, One-Dish EntrĂ©es, Fresh Flavor Steamers, Fresh Mixers, Multi-serve Bakes, Pot Pies, small Fruit Pies and Dessert Pies & Cobblers.

  • Plus check out the flavors they come in:

    Chicken Pot Pie
    Turkey Pot Pie
    Beef Pot Pie
    Creamy Mushroom Chicken Pot Pie
    Creamy Parmesan Chicken Pot Pie
    Honey Roasted Chicken Pot Pie
    Cheesy Chicken Pot Pie

    This household will definitely be keeping these on hand for moments like Friday....or really for just any reason!  They are good!!!!!!!

    Tell me , have you ever eaten a Marie Callender's Pot Pie?

    "Listen to Me Please" ~ Review

    Recently I was fortunate to be asked to give a read through of "Listen to Me Please" by Dr. Ron Taffel & Ava Parnass RN, MSN with Katie Kaminski.

    Apparently, a little bird must have told Ms. Parnass about our behavioral issues with Cheeks. For those of you that are not aware, please see my main blog

    So I thought, hmm, why not read through and see what they have to say.

    The book follows a lot on how the child is feeling. Which I think, we as parents, can forget that the child has feelings as well and those feelings need to validated.

    Cheeks falls right in the middle of the recommended age category for this book. This book helps us parents have real conversations with our children that are three to eight years old. A tough age for a lot kids.

    Most children lack the vocabulary or the skills they need to explain why they had a bad day, don't want to do something or are being mean spirited. The book encourages parents to calmly and at a good time in the day, ask the child how/what they are feeling.

    Take for instance, the other night, after reading the book, I asked Cheeks what his favorite part of the day was. His response: "Building Lego city with you cause you are my best friend!" Talk about a moment, that made me so happy. Especially since two weeks ago, in the middle of a tantrum, he told me he hated me. Ah, good times!

    I then followed up with asking him what the worse part of the day was. He responded with going to the principal. Something he does, every school day, but 4 since Kindergarten began.

    We proceed to talk nicely about why and how he could have prevented going to the principal. I praised him for telling me his feelings and told him tomorrow would be a better day.

    The book is to be read with a child. It includes pictures of different feelings that a child can point at to help describe his feelings. This is especially great with younger children.

    What I really liked, what seemed to help with my little guy was the chapter about "Handling Tough Feelings." I learned that a parent doesn't always have to address the temper tantrum in the midst of it. Perhaps wait until things are calmer, then acknowledge the emotions by saying something like "I see how mad you were, tell me why." In my experience this allowed Cheeks to open up without getting upset again. We try to work through the issues at that time.

    "Listen to Me Please" even gives good conversation starters to help you communicate with your child/children. What's especially nice is the book is not preachy or condescending. I've experienced that tone with a few books that I've read and it's always put me off.
    Changing things with your child will always take awhile. I expect mine to take at least another 5 years. LOL He's a tough cookie, my Cheeks.

    The book will not change things overnight but it's definitely going to help get everthing on the right track, in my opinion.

    "Listen to Me Please" is available on ">Amazon. Definitely look into it, you will not be disappointed.
    If you already have it, leave me a comment letting me know what you think. I'd love to know.

    Deck the Halls with Shutterfly Christmas Cards {Giveaway!!}

    It's that time!
    That time of year to start thinking about the Christmas cards you want to send.

    I love to pick out Christmas card.
    You can say I am slightly obsessed.
    I've sent photo cards ever since I had Cheeks.
    They are so fun & show off the fam.

    I always turn to Shutterfly for my cards, too.
    I've used them the last 4 years.
    Cheeks is 5!  So that ought to tell you how happy I am with the quality and selection they offer.
    Not to mention the great price.

    This year I've been perusing Shutterfly to see what card I like best, so I can get them nice & early.

    This one caught my eye:

    How super cute is that card?
    I love using black & white or even sepia colored photos then having them font add a splash of color.
    So fun & whimsical (whimsical...see how I am using my English degree, Nice!)

    Of course, being that we have 3 children, I do like to feature them separate.
    I think this might be the last year that I can get the oldest to pose for me.
    He's going to be 18 on did that happen?

    I digress.
    Check this card out.
    Untraditional colors yet Christmasy & with 3 spots for individual photos:

    Of course, Shutterfly has more than just Christmas cards.
    You can get any type of greeting card.

    Say you want to send a card to beat the rush.
    Think Thanksgiving.
    I've always wanted to send Thanksgiving cards.

    How adorable is this one?

    3 boys.
    Just like my family.
    Except this children are all clean & dressed up.
    Not a super hero or Aeropostle shirt in site.
    Ah, to dream.

    Snapfish also does calendars, date books etc.
    Check that stuff out here: Shutterfly.

    The thought did cross my mind to actually send New Years Cards.
    Thus surpassing the rush & giving the receiver a little "post Christmas cheer".

    Out of all Shutterfly's selection of New Years cards, this one is my fav:

    I could spend hours on Shutterfly picking out cards, calendars, photo gifts. 
    Matter of fact, I have spent hours.
    Then again I am a card & photo nut.

    Now are you ready for you blog?
    Want a chance to get 25 free cards for youself?

    Register here: Document for your chance to blog and get 25 free cards.

    If you'd like to win 25 cards as well, Shutterfly was kind enough to give me 3 codes for 3 of my readers to win 25 free cards.

    Pretty Review, Pretty Giveaway...Woo!

    I was recently given the opportunity to review the book "Pretty" by Jillian Lauren.
    Here's what "Pretty" is all about:

    Bebe Baker is an ex-everything: ex-stripper, ex-Christian, ex-drug addict, ex-pretty girl.

    It’s been one year since the car accident that killed her boyfriend left her scarred and shaken. Flanked by an eccentric posse of friends, she is serving out a self-imposed sentence at a halfway house, while trying to finish cosmetology school. 

    Amid the rampant diagnoses, over-medication, compulsive eating, and acrylic nails of Los Angeles, Bebe looks for something to believe in before something–her past, the dangerously magnetic men in her life, her own bad choices–knocks her off course again.
    For me, "Pretty" is not so pretty.  It's a gritty story that has you right in the middle of the drama pretty much from page one.  It's an easy read but not easy enough that you don't stop thinking of Bebe when you put the book down.  This is one novel that keeps your interests and doesn't wane from the topic. 
    Jillian Lauren paints a grim picture of life in halfway.   All the characters in the book are so vibrant that you could easily pick them out in a crowd if you had to, or heck a line up with some of these characters.
    So if you want a novel that you can become immersed in yet read with easy flow, this is the one for you.
    Good news my faithful peeps, I have been given a book to giveaway (Holla!) 
    So you can enter the giveaway and/or purchase one over at Amazon.
    What's nice about buying the book is that the first 250 people who order "Pretty" & email the receipt to will receive a Limited Edition run of the "Pretty" neckllace, made by Fairy Tale
    Pretty, no?

    Ok, onto the giveaway.

    Mandatory Entry:

    1.  You must follow me via twitter: mkw70 and tweet: Check out @jillylauren's new book, Pretty & enter to @win a copy @mkw70 #PRETTYBOOK.  Make sure to leave a comment letting me know you follow me on twitter & a link to the tweet.

    Mic - C ya review, Key - Y? Because I have a giveaway

    "Tis true. It's Labor Day weekend.
    The unofficial end of summer.

    Since it's the end of the summer, beginning of school year, fall sports etc, I was given the opportunity to review Mickey Band-Aids.

    Good thing. Three boys, one husband...we get a lot of cuts & scraps.
    Leave it to the little one the night the Band-Aids arrived he manages to scrape his big toe on the sidewalk.
    Of course it bled so Mickey Band Aids to the rescue.

    They covered his toe right up & took care of the "bleed" as Cheeks calls it.  The Baind-Aid stayed on through sleeping in twin sheets, wearing socks the next day & running around barefoot. 

    The box I got consisted of two different sizes & the cutest patterns.  It's vintage Mickey.  Cheeks was thrilled & I like to use them as a fashion statement. 

    Good news, I get to give some away.  The giveaway will be:

    2 boxes of Mickey Band-Aids
    1 tube of Neosporan
    A Disney Mickey Lunch Box

    Here's what you have to do to win the giveaway:

    Mandatory entry:

    1.  Leave me a comment with your favorite Disney movie.

    Additional entries, 1 entry each:
    1.  Follow my blog & leave me a comment letting me know.

    2.  Follow me on twitter: mkw70

    Summer's Not Officially Over

    This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Yes, Labor Day is upon us.  The unofficial end of summer for most of us.

    In reality the end of summer is not for a few more weeks and what better way to celebrate the end of summer by a long weekend, away.   Where you ask?  Branson, MO at the Hiltons of Branson

    Long summer weekends are the perfect time to take advantage of staying at the Hiltons of Branson, the Hilton Branson Convention Center & the Hilton Promenode at Branson Landing.  Branson Best Value Vacation Package gives you the third night spave people!!!  It includes deluxe accomadations at the Hiltons of Branson plus two adult & two kid's tix to Legends of Kung Fu show. Ah grasshopper, you would be foolish not to partake in such a deal.   Plus two adult & two kid's two day passes  to Silver Dollar City, a $25 dollar g/c to go shopping & a $25 dollar food credit to the Level 2 Steakhouse.

    Besides the good time at Silver Dollar City you can take in tons of other good times.  Like the Mark Chapman Band - Live in Concert, Shepard Summer Cruise, Brandon Mountain Man Triathlon (Bobster wants to do this...silly man...they'd need a medic waiting for him at the end!), the 3rd Annual Guns & Hoses Fishing Tournie, Cut Club Dinner Event & so much more.  Vist Explore Branson to see the complete calendar of events.

    Of course, if you stay & play in Branson this will be your sure opinion of it:

    100 Days to Christmas E~Book Review

    I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of 100 Days to Christmas by Jennifer Tankersky.

    I am so happy I have this ebook.  My holiday life is now easier.

    I've been following Jennifer's 100 Days to Christmas since 2008 when she started it.  Totally love it.  This is the first year she has offered a book & when I say "Thank goodness" I mean "Run now & get it!"  It's a pure steal at $4.99.

    Jennifer helps you start planning in September (which is right around the corner) & takes you all the way through Christmas Day.  She includes the fall holidays as well.  Not only does she have tasks to do she gives you fun, light hearted ideas to do through out the lead up to the big day.  Plus goals and encouragement.

    Having the ebook gives you the opportunity to see everything for this year up front.  No waiting for the daily email.  You have it at your finger tips.   Not to mention she gives you some free dowloadable lists within the book....can you say SCORE!  Yea, I thought so.

    Some of the fun tasks Jennifer helps you set up is a budget (which we all need), gift list, even a link for labels. 

    This ebook gives it to you all.   A recipe for apple crisp is included for the fall season...I will be making it.

    I don't want to tell you too much about the book because I would love for you to get it for youself.

    Visit 100 Days to Christmas. Remember, it's only $4.99...that's less than some of the holiday magazines out there.

    Let me know if you've followed the list before or if you are a newbie this year.
    I'd love to know.
