Stuffed Breakfast Burgers #BurgerMonth

This post is part of a kick-butt burger grill giveaway hosted by GirlCarnivore but the burger epicness is all my own.
It's Burger Month y'all and I am so excited to be participating again this year!
These Stuffed Breakfast Burgers are a messy but good meal you will love! I use ground sirloin patties and stuff them with garlic and herb cheese spread, then top with peppered bacon, runny eggs, and gooey cheddar cheese! Serve these anytime of the day-they are a delicious meal for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner!
 Be sure to follow along every day for the entire month of May for chances to win the Ultimate Burger Grilling Giveaway and check BurgerMonth.com daily for all of the amazing burgers.

Pink Party Punch

This Pink Party Punch is a pretty and easy to make drink

Memorial Day Poppy Kids Craft

Next Monday we celebrate Memorial Day.
Some see it as the unofficial start to summer but there is a much more important meaning.  On Memorial Day we remember and honor the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. We made a family craft this week in honor of Memorial Day and I love how it turned out.
Scroll down to read about the meaning of poppies on Memorial Day and the instructions for our simple Poppy Kids Craft
Why are poppies a symbol of Memorial Day?
The red poppy is a powerful symbol of remembrance of the service and sacrifice of those who died in service to our nation. Poppies were one of the only plants to grow on the barren battlefields after WWI and the red flowers are also a metaphor for spilled blood on the battlefield.
Members of The American Legion Auxiliary have been helping the nation to remember by distributing the remembrance poppy to the public for one hundred years. We donate and receive poppies every year from them. 

From the American Legion website. 

What You Need:


  • 6 large popsicle sticks
  • 6 white cupcake liners
  • red. green, and black markers {or any color desired}
  • glue

Directions:

  1. Using the red markers, flatten the liners then color them all over on one side.
  2. Using the black marker, draw a center in each colored flower.
  3. Add glue to the top of each stick and press on colored flowers.
  4. Color the bottom visible part of the stick green.
  5. Now you can glue to cardstock, or place in a display or vase for Memorial Day. 

Using the red markers, flatten the liners then color them all over on one side.
Ashton even made poppies with his girls.
Using the black marker, draw a center in each colored flower.
Add glue to the top of each stick and press on colored flowers.
Color the bottom visible part of the stick green.
Stella's beautiful rainbow flower! 
Ava's beautiful poppy creation!
Ava wanted to make more and more!
Poppies are red but the kids can use any color of the rainbow if they desire!
Now you can glue to cardstock, or place in a display or vase for Memorial Day. 

In Flanders Fields

by John McCrae
  In Flanders fields the poppies blow 
Between the crosses row on row, 
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly 
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago 
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, 
Loved and were loved and now we lie 
In Flanders fields. 

Take up our quarrel with the foe: 
To you, from failing hands we throw 
The torch; be yours to hold it high. 
If ye break faith with us who die 
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow, 
In Flanders fields.

Movie Night Snack Necklaces | Mother's Day Recap

We are a movie lovin' family and one of our favorite things to do together is cuddle up and watch a movie on our nights off together. We love going to our local theater, with their cozy recliners and awesome kids meals {they actually have homemade hummus and yogurt parfaits!} and also just having movie nights at home on the couch. 
For Mother's Day this year that is exactly what I wanted- movie night with my family! We went to see Ugly Dolls which surprisingly was a great movie with a positive message and a killer soundtrack. 
My girls were singing through the whole thing and we had a blast! I decided we would make these fun Movie Night Snack Necklaces for movie night, both at home and at the theater. They are easy to make with any snack that you can string on and were a tasty treat during the show!
Happy Mother's Day to all the lovely Moms out there! 
Love this photo from Flower Vault in San Antonio of my Mom, myself, and my two daughters. 
I am truly blessed!

Cowboy Steak and Potato Kabobs #SummerGrilling

Today's #SummerGrilling recipe has been sponsored by Hamilton Beach and BBQGuys, however, all opinions are my own. #AD #HamiltonBeach
 Kabobs on the grill are one of my family's favorite summertime meals. I love how easy they are to assemble and how you can customize them just about any way you want! Today I was inspired by my hubby and his favorite "meat and potatoes" manly meals.

 I call these Cowboy Steak and Potato Kabobs because they are just what a cowboy would like- hearty steak, baby potatoes, onions,and mushrooms all seasoned to perfection and grilled until juicy and tender. I uses my new Hamilton Beach indoor searing grill and IGrill digital meat thermometer from BBQGuys and our dinner turned our perfect!
