How to Get Rid of Cable and Still Be Entertained

This post contains affiliate links.

Last year we decided to get rid of cable during the spring and summer months. We figured we could save some money and spend more time outside anyway. In our house, the tv is pretty much always on, even if no one is really watching anything. I guess we have it for background noise and something to catch your eye every now and then. Most of the shows we follow are fall shows and we watch football in the fall, so we thought it wouldn’t be too hard to give cable up for awhile.

Blogger Basket Swap for Easter

I just participated in my first blogger swap. Apparently, these kind of things happen all the time! This was an Easter Basket swap. Each blogger is assigned two other bloggers, one to give to and one to receive from. Basically, you stalk your partners and see what you can find out about them.


I sent to Momma Lew and received from Modded Momma.

DIY Paint-n-Fly Glider by J-Color

I received product to facilitate this review. Opinions expressed are my own.

It’s finally that time of year where we can get outside and play! Charlie wants to do a craft every day and the Pain-n-Fly Glider is perfect.

The really awesome part about the Paint-n-Fly glider is that kids can put it together, paint it, fly it, peel the paint off, then REPAINT it however they’d like! With kids, this is a great idea because we all know how quickly they can change their mind about something.

Annie’s Homegrown Frozen Entrée: Shells & White Cheddar with Chicken


Influenster sent me a complimentary coupon to try an Annie’s Homegrown Family Size Frozen Entrée.  These are easily found at Target, with choices including: Butternut Squash Macaroni & Cheese, Shells & White Cheddar with Chicken, Classic Macaroni & Cheese, and Lasagna with Meat Sauce.

I am very curious about the Butternut Squash Macaroni & Cheese, but I’m often scared to really try something completely different. I make macaroni and cheese and lasagna often, so I decided to grab the Shells & White Cheddar with Chicken. It sounded delicious and looked fantastic on the package.
