Two Tip Tuesday

Wow, I don't know where the time has gone. We went away for vacation and then unfortunately at the end of it Sawyer got sick the last two days and ended up having a double ear infection. I spent last week trying to recover from vacation and to get him well. Fortunately he is feeling better. His birthday was Sunday. It is so hard to believe he is 3. We've come so far in three years. Every year we count our blessings. For those of you who don't know, Sawyer was a preemie and was 1 pound and 12 ounces when he was born. So, we are so grateful for him and the blessings we've had with him.

I thought I'd get back into the swing of things with offering up some tips for you this Two Tip Tuesday.

Tip #1

My first tip for you today is that you've got to try Smucker's new Apple Cinnamon ice cream topping. I discovered it at the store last week and it is just heavenly. I am a fan of apple pie and of course my favorite part of it is the filling. This ice cream topping is just like having the filling of apple pie to put right on top of your ice cream. It is awesome and I highly recommend it. Taking time to make a sundae is a fun way to cool down and beat the heat with your family.

Tip #2

If you are looking to throw a fun party, be sure to check out Dollar Tree. I decided to do a luau themed birthday party for Sawyer. We just had our family come over and celebrate, but I still wanted to make things festive. They had great decorations and I didn't have to spend a fortune to make things look nice. Remember that streamers are an inexpensive option that can cover a lot of space when you are decorating.

So, that is all I have for today. I hope to share some 4th of July pix and other goodies later this week. Have a great day!
