Slow Cooker Bacon Cheeseburger Pizza Dip

Most people follow a sport in one form or another. In our house, we’re football people. And I mean, WE. I know some wives pretend to follow football and “cheer” for their husband’s team, but have no real idea what is going on. This is not the case in our house. I was a Ravens fan long before my husband and I started dating. He’s just lucky he is too.

Charlie loves to watch football with Mommy and Daddy now. He says “Go Ravens”! And he can echo us in the same exact tone when we say “Come on….” (be that a good thing or not).

When we’re watching football we sometimes forget to eat real meals, so our snacking has to be heavy! And what’s better for a football snack than some warm cheesy meaty dip?

Owen is 1!

I can’t believe that my baby, my last baby, turns 1 today! I know it’s so cliché and everyone says it, but it’s true: our babies really do grow up too quick. We had his 1st Birthday Party this past Saturday, so stay tuned for some jungle party fun, but I wanted to share some quick pics for his 1st birthday.

This is our first picture of Owen. I do regret not having someone take a pic of all 3 of us. I see tons of pics like that where mom is still on the table, but most moms having c-sections probably weren’t screaming in pain the majority of time.

Feel Confident About LBL with Poise

Thanks to Poise for sponsoring today’s post.

So here we go. This is definitely a post that’s a bit different from recipes and crafts, but one that the moms will totally get. You know that feeling when you sneeze, laugh, or maybe even jump? The one that feels like a little tinkle maybe? That’s called light bladder leakage (LBL). I know… not really a pleasant thing to talk about, but what’s really unpleasant is having to wear a giant pad just because a little LBL might happen.

Don’t let the fear of LBL change your daily routine! If you want to laugh, jump around with your kiddos or exercise without worrying about a little tinkle, do it! Right now, you can grab a free sample of the new Poise Microliners!

Mail Carrier & Letter Halloween Costumes

This post may contain affiliate links.

This is our first Halloween with both boys. Owen was 2 days old last year and we were still in the hospital. My mom and step-father took Charlie trick or treating last year and we are so excited to be able to take both around this year!

After given a few choices, Charlie decided on being a mailman for Halloween. So, that left Owen as a package or a letter.

Easy One Pot Cheesy Smoked Sausage Pasta

This post is sponsored by Hillshire Brands in partnership with Mom It Forward. However, all opinions are my own.

At our house, we need a protein in every meal. Hillshire Farm Lit’l Smokies have made it a breeze to add protein to our dishes. Sure, you can always eat mac and cheese plain, but doesn’t this look soooo much better?
