This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic.

Father’s Day is coming up and this year I have my eye on sporting goods for hubs.  He loves to fish and camp and just be outside in general, and Bubbles has become increasingly interested in those things, too.  I thought it would be appropriate for her gifts for Daddy to be things they can do together.

If sporting goods are on your list, too, Cabela’s has lots of great options.  They’ve even put together a “Tents & Tackles” gift guide for you to make it extra-easy.

Find all your sporting goods at Cabela's, like this 8 person tent

The past few days have been a little hectic.  Between visitors, work, the rainy weather, groundskeeping, cooking, cleaning, and scheduling a family night out to the movies, my head has been spinning just a tiny bit.  I don’t know that we are any “busier” now than when Bubbles was a baby, but it’s a different kind of busy that takes a little more planning.

The older Bubbles gets, the more hectic I know it will get, too.  We’re already looking into some tumbling classes or a soccer league for her and those practices have to be accounted for in our daily ebb and flow.  I can tell that to keep up, I’m going to need two things: a lot more energy and a better scheduling system.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and for someone I know, it’s a very special one.  I’m so excited to share that my sister-in-law and my brother are pregnant with their first child!  So this Mother’s Day will be her very first one.

Lately I have been in the mood for my Mom’s Taco Salad.  It’s a great recipe (I’ll share it with you all one of these days), a little different than a traditional taco salad.  It’s not hard to make, but it does take a little advanced planning.

This Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe has all the yummy flavors of a taco on one plate. No big shell needed, just add a few crushed tortilla chips to give you that nice crunch.Thank you to Lunchbox for sponsoring this post. Words & opinions are my own.

I was trying to decide what to make for lunch recently and after going through all the cabinets, fridge and freezer, I realized that I had everything on hand to make tacos.  Which meant that I had everything I needed to make the Quick & Easy Taco Salad recipe from the Kraft Recipe Hub.  Hubby likes taco salad, also, so I decided to whip this recipe up for lunch.
