A trip to Dairy Queen when I was a kid was a special treat (truthfully it still is).  We would go a few times every summer, but it wasn’t a constant thing.  While there is something special about having a Dairy Queen Blizzard we never felt like we were missing out because most weeks we still got to have Blizzards.  We just got to have them at home.  Years back, when Pinterest wasn’t a thought and the interment wasn’t over flowing with copycat recipes, my mom was recreating Blizzards for us at home.  They have always been one of my favorite summer treats, but honestly they aren’t hard to make.  They are really yummy though, so I thought I’d share with all of you my mother’s Dairy Queen Blizzard Copycat Recipe.

Christmas in July
Oh how I love Christmas.  The sights, the music, the smell of the holiday goodies. I even admit that I love the gift part, but I love giving gifts even more than I love getting them (although who doesn’t at least enjoy getting them some?).  It doesn’t need to officially be Christmas time for me to enjoy giving away a Christmas gift either which is why I have teamed up with 9 other awesome bloggers to bring you this fun Christmas in July giveaway!

Meal Plan Monday
Has your summer been calm or hectic?  Mine continues to be crazy, and I’m so over it.  I admit that I don’t like when my plans get changed.  It’s just one of those things I don’t deal with very well, and that seems to be the story of this summer!  I am so proud of myself for sticking to my meal plan even with all the changes.  It’s like a lifeline in a sea of craziness!  I hope things calm down soon though.  I can’t take much more.

Egg Allergy Update – July 2014

by Elizabeth July 18, 2014

It’s been quite some time since I posted an update on Nick’s egg allergy.  Mostly because until you go back to the allergist you don’t really know where you stand.  It’s actually been a year since we last saw the allergist.  The original appointment we had been given (for June) had been changed three or […]

Help A Teacher Buy Classroom Supplies

by Elizabeth July 16, 2014

Having gone to school for education myself I know what teachers go through. People often complain that teachers get the summer months off, but teachers work so hard during the school year that they more than make-up for that time.  They go in early, leave late, and usually put in more hours of planning and […]

Happy Monday!  I must say that I’m ready for a new week.  Last week was far from the best.  Things went well with my meal plan though.  A silver lining in an up and down week.  There’s nothing like having a meal plan in place to keep your crazy week grounded.  There are some unfinished […]
