This recipe has been a favorite for my kids for a few years now.  Ever since I saw it on The Pioneer Woman and tried it out we were hooked!  Soooo simple and sooo delicious!  My kids instantly nicknamed them Kung Fu Panda noodles for short! =)  Here is the recipe from The Pioneer Woman's blog...

  • 3 Tablespoons Pure Sesame Oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon Hot Chili Oil
  • 4 Tablespoons Canola Oil
  • 4 whole Green Onions, Sliced Thin

Preparation Instructions

Whisk all ingredients (except noodles and green onions) together in a bowl. Taste and adjust ingredients as needed.
Pour sauce over warm noodles and toss to coat.
Sprinkle with green onions and toss.
Serve in a bowl with chopsticks. Yummy!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When my 2nd son was 3 years old, I found out that he needed glasses.  I was very surprised as I have always had perfect vision and I mean come on, he was only 3!  But one of his eyes turned in and his pediatrician noticed it and sent us on to a opthamologist where he was diagnosed and treated.  

So glasses it was, and glasses it still is...6 years later! 

Luckily my boy has been a champ at this and is just used to it and never really complains about it.  He even had to wear an eye patch for awhile to help his bad eye!

Well as I am sure you can guess, glasses with a little child get lost, broken and mangled quite often over time!  I have used to order replacement glasses and it is VERY convenient!  They deliver right to your door and they have thousands of options and you can save up 70% off from a traditional store!  They offer free shipping, 366 day returns, so many different varieties, and it is super easy to log onto your computer and order instead of hauling everyone down to the eyeglass store!  Go check out their eyeglasses or contact lenses and see for your self!

My son picked out  both of these glasses for his wish list!  He's such a stud!!

Mombo...the new nursing pillow

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Comfort and Harmony for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

So I've recently found out about this new Mombo pillow and I must say I'm impressed! For my two boys I was obsessed with the Boppy pillow for feeding and having my babies lay down to sleep. However this new Mombo seems like the Boppy but with nice new added features. First off, it has a vibrating feature which would be very nice to soothe your little one while feeding or laying down.  How cool is that, to have a vibrating feature right there while you are snuggling with your little one!   My babies have always liked the vibration movement.  It also has one side that's firm and the other that's softer.  What a great idea to give you the choice of firmness!  And also to give the option of what your baby wants.   Some babies are pretty particular, yes I have some experiemce with  knowing this!  =)  Also some of their covers have these little taggies like the one shown below which I think is awesome if you have a baby like mine that were obsessed with taggies! I think it is adorable when my baby reaches out to grab a taggie and rub his fingers over it.  And sometimes mine likes to just suck and chew on the taggies.  Definitely weird, but whatever keeps him happy!   I definitely am getting one of thesemombo nursing pillow for my next baby!

These are sold at Babies R Us and come in so many colors and fabrics! Check them out!best nursing pillow

Go check them out on Facebook hereComfort & Harmony on Facebook and make sure you like them to stay up to date on products and offers.  They are also on Twitter Comfort & Harmony on Twitter so check them out there too!

I love how all these new products keep coming out to make life so much easier with little ones!  No, it isn't a "necessity" but it sure is nice and makes life easier when you are getting hardly any sleep and dealing with diapers and clean ups all day long!  The Mombo is a welcome relief!

Juice Box with Wings!

Sooo...does anyone else get really frustrated with juice boxes and little hands squeezing the juice all over the place??

I was seriously to the point where I refused to buy juice boxes.  It didn't matter how carefully I explained the correct way to hold the juice box.
"Just hold right here at the top like Mommy."
Then BAM...their little chubby hands grab it and juice comes streaming out!

Well, a friend was over recently and I brought out juice boxes (it was a special occasion so I had splurged).  I over hear her say something to her daughter about holding the wings.
"Say what??"

She then proceeded to present the most genius idea I had heard of!
Pull the tabs out at the top of the juice box like this.

Then tell your child to hold their juice box by its wings!!

Parking a Large Car in a Normal Garage

I don't know if I am the only one who has this problem, but they don't make garages very big these days it seems. We have a 3 car garage and it BARELY fits 2 cars!
And the cars are parked from end to end in there!!  I am not gonna lie, I have ran into the wall because I was trying to get the front of my car in as far as I could so that the garage door would close behind me!
Well I saw a great idea the other day on Pinterest and I had to share it with you all because I think it is genius!

What you need:
*pool noodle ( found mine at Big Lots for $2)
*a couple of screws

Line up your pool noodle with the part of your front bumper that sticks out the farthest.
Screw it into the wall.
You're done!

Now, when you get too close, you hit your car softly against a soft foam noodle and not the drywall!  =)
