Back To School With Tea Collection – Bauhaus Collection



We absolutely love Tea Collection at my house.  It is cute comfy and high quality which are all wonderful in a kids’ clothing line. We were excited when Tea Collection contacted us for an outfit review. My youngest got straight to work checking out the new Germany collections. We  both loved the Bauhaus collection inspired by the 20th century Bauhaus art school.  It’s artists got creative with colors shapes and textiles in a way the world had never seen before.

I loved the Tea Collection Lyrical Shapes Dress but my daughter nixed dresses. She wanted comfy pants and a tee instead. If you are lucky enough to still have a dress loving daughter, you need to check out this dress. It is adorable with the hot pink leggings. My girls used to live in Tea Collections dresses and leggings. They are easy to wear and also look amazing!



So after she nixed the dresses,  she picked the Tea Collection Bauhaus Bear Graphic Tee. This shirt is so fun and the bashful bear is inspired by the textile work of the women of Bauhaus. We love that it can be worn not only when the weather is warmer as pictured at the top of post,  it can also be layered when the weather gets chilly.  We layered it with the Tea Collection Solid Purity Tee. The spearmint color matches the bear’s body perfectly.




To round out the look, we added the Tea Collection Print French Terry Cargo Pants. These pull on pants have just a bit of extra style with the cargo pockets and the floral pattern. Tea Collection always gets all the little details just right. These pull on pants will be easy for kids of all ages to wear. They don’t have to hassle with zippers and buttons.

My daughter is at the bottom of the size 8 size chart for height and the top of the size 7 size chart for weight. We ordered the whole outfit in size 8. I would say that the Tea Collection Bauhaus Bear Graphic Tee runs generous. We had to do some tucking in to get the shirt to look great in the pictures. If you like a more fitted look and your child is at the bottom of the size chart, you may want to size down on the shirt.

Overall, we both just love this outfit. It is fun but still age appropriate. It is also comfy and easy to wear which my kids love. We styled the outfit with our new back to school shoes from Shoe Carnival and they look great. I am sure this outfit will be in heavy rotation through the school year.


There are lots more great items from Tea Collection, it was hard for us to pick out just one outfit. Be sure to check out all their new lines today.

Disclosure: Tea Collection provided us with the outfit for review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Frozen Foods Makes Entertaining Easier

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Frozen Foods Institute and the Frozen Food Roundtable for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to entertain but sometimes don’t like all the work that goes into getting ready for a get together.  Frozen foods can help make it easier to get people together and enjoy each other’s company.

Frozen appetizers work great for entertaining.  I love to serve Delimex taquitos with my homemade salsa. Here is my  easy healthy salsa recipe. It is great to mix fresh with frozen foods. You can check out fresh vs frozen here.  Just pop these in the oven and they are ready quickly. You could even keep them on hand for last minute guests.



TGI Friday mozzarella sticks are always a hit with adults and kids alike. These are so easy to make and even come with the marinara sauce for dipping. These went very quickly at my home. They are great for entertaining when watching a game as well. Don’t forget football season is coming up soon. You might want to throw a few boxes in the freezer and be ready for guests!



Frozen desserts are also an easy way to get food on the table quickly and spend time with your guests. Look at this yummy frozen Edward’s pie.  These come with just two slices so you can buy just enough and not be left with a whole pie.



Stouffers frozen macaroni and cheese can even be served in small dishes for guests.

Convenience is just one benefit of frozen foods. Here are some other benefits of frozen foods.  This explains more about Frozen. How Fresh Stays Fresh.   I love that with frozen foods you can spend your time visiting with your guests instead of in the kitchen.

Tips for Planning a Family Universal Orlando Vacation



Here are a few easy tips to help you plan a family Universal Orlando vacation.

Strongly consider staying at a Universal on-site  hotel. You will get some great benefits that will help you enjoy your vacation

  • Guests of all four hotels get early entry to the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. This includes Hogsmeade and Diagon Alley.  Only one area is open earlier each day.  This is a HUGE benefit since these attractions get extremely busy.  Wait times can easily be over 2 hours or more later in the day.
  •  Guests of the deluxe hotels  including Loews Portofino Bay Hotel receive Universal Express Ride Access.  This allows you to skip the regular lines and use the Express entrance. This means you can  see and do more in less time! Who wants to spend their day waiting line?  Unfortunately, the Harry Potter attractions are excluded from the Express Ride Access. That is why the early entry is such a great benefit. 
  • Priority seating at select restaurants throughout both theme parks and enjoy first available seating at select Universal Orlando® and CityWalk® restaurants. This is a great perk.

Watch movies and read books highlighted in the attractions before you arrive.  This helps increase your enjoyment and anticipation of the trip. We are heading to Universal Orlando soon  with Mom It Forward and had family movie marathons. It has been great to spend quality family time together even before our trip.  We watched all of the Harry Potter, Despicable Me, and Shrek movies. If you have little ones, you will want to be reading Dr. Suess so you can fully enjoy Suess Landing.


Check out the ride height restrictions before you arrive and prep your kids for what they can and can not ride.

Easy Healthy Salsa Recipe

easy healthy salsa recipe - just a few simple ingredients and no added sugar


Looking for an easy healthy salsa recipe? Here is my favorite. It is so so easy to make but tastes incredible. The fresh flavors blend together so well.  You can use this salsa as a dip with chips but it is also fantastic on tacos or an other Mexican inspired  meal.  You are going to love this so much that you will never want to buy store bought salsa again. It really can’t compare.


Best of all, the recipe is very healthy. There is no added sugar and contains just a few simple ingredients. If you have a garden, this would be a great way to use your tomato crop but you can purchase the tomatoes at the grocery store too.
