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?

Before shopping at Safeway, I always check my Just For U coupons and add anything I might pick up. The coupons are added right to my card! Right now, you can find some great coupons on Hillshire Brands, including this one for Lit’l Smokies.

Making Baths Fun with BathBlocks

I received a free BathBlocks set in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.

I don’t know about you, but bath time at our house is hit or miss. We recently got the chance to test out BathBlocks. What kid doesn’t like blocks? BathBlocks are the perfect tub toy. You can build and create waterslides, ball runs, floating towns, castles, and more!


Charlie’s 3.5 and has a little trouble getting them to stick to the tub, but so do Tom and I. It says to use soap suds to increase cling to the wall, but we still had a hard time. I think it’ll just take time to get it down. Either way, Charlie thinks they’re fantastic and will easily play with them in the tub for half an hour.

#GetGoing with Jif to Go Dippers

I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a thank you item for participating.

If you’re a parent, you know how kids are always STARVING. Sure… occasionally we forget to feed them, but usually they seem to be hungry 2 minutes after they ate anyway. You know what I’m talking about. So, as parents we are required to arm our bags, cars, and pockets with snacks to refuel.

Jif has made snacking on-the-go super convenient with their new Jif to Go Dippers.
