Half Time Hero - Meatballs and Game Day Snacks With Farm Rich

“This #HalftimeHero creation is brought to you by Farm Rich. All opinions expressed are my own.”

It’s a good thing I have always loved watching Football, because my birthday has always landed on or during the weekend of the biggest football game of the year. Trevor very cleverly created a tradition of throwing me a “birthday party” that is really just game day football food with some cake. Honestly though, I love it. We always get together with a bunch of friends and all bring a ton of snacks, appetizers and eat ourselves sick. One of our favorite things to make, and the easiest thing, is some crock pot meat balls! Anything that I can easily throw in a crock pot, or the oven, with little to no prep is my kind of cooking when you have a bunch of food to make and want to spend time with your friends. 

Farm Rich has a great selection of Meatballs and they are all Gluten Free for those who need to be aware of that! I used their Original Meatballs for this recipe but you can use their Italian if it suits what your making better. They even have some Turkey Meatballs if you are wanting to be a little more health conscious. The different meats and seasonings available create a base for a variety of ways you could take this recipe! There are several different ways you can cook these Meatballs but the way we like them is to get them in the crock pot, add whatever your favorite sauce is and let them cook away! If you have been reading my blog for a long time you know we like a little spice and always use some Jamaica Me Sweet Hot and Crazy Marinade. So take whatever sauce you want to use, and set your crock pot to HIGH, cover, and heat for 3-4 hours (full bag). Grab some tooth picks and let people serve themselves throughout the game! EASY PEASY! 


While picking up the Meatballs I noticed a huge selection of Farm Rich snacks and appetizers! All great picks for a game day get together. I decided to grab some Mozzarella Sticks and Jalapeno Peppers - I mean, what doesn't scream football food more than that? haha Anything with cheese or cream cheese is a go in my book. They will be super easy to just pop in the oven and serve. When it comes to frozen foods it's comforting to know that Farm Rich is made with wholesome ingredients, are quick-frozen and carefully packaged. Check out their Game Day page for all the different options for your party prep!

SHOPPING HAUL ❤ ULTA, CARTER'S, OLD NAVY, TARGET



I recently did a shopping haul on my YouTube channel. Thought I would post it on over here too! I love seeing what deals are going on, what other people buy for their kids, where they like to shop. Enjoy! XO

SECOND TRIMESTER UPDATE ❤ 27/28 WEEKS


While I have been very active on all my other social media platforms, I have totally neglected this blog the past six months! With the new year I want to get back to posting more regularly on here, because this blog is first and foremost a journal for me that I never want to stop using. The main thing that has been keeping me away from posting here is that I have been doing much more vlogging. Basically what I would post on my blog now done on video form on my YouTube channel. I have been posting very regularly on there if you are interested. 

Just yesterday I filmed and posted a Second Trimester Update! I haven't posted more about this pregnancy because there hasn't been much to say. I have been feeling amazing and I have hardly any symptoms to even mention. You can hear more about the things that have been changing more recently for me as I am about to start the final trimester of my pregnancy. I can't believe how fast this has flown on by and before I know it I will be a mom of two! A little BOY! AHHH haha I am getting excited :)

The Baby Cubby - Must Haves + My Favorites

I have talked about The Baby Cubby several times on my social media channels and blog, and that is because it is my favorite place to shop for all things baby. This isn't just another baby store, they are unique in so many ways. First off, it is family run, by a couple who are parents themselves, everything they offer feels like a recommendation from a trusted source. They are truly a resource for you mamas! They take pride in offering the best and safest baby gear and providing it to parents in a fun shopping experience. You can test strollers on their stroller track, they actively engage with parents via social media and on their own cubby community blog where they discuss some of those hard topics of parenting.

They offer the best of the best brands, and often are the first to showcase new and upcoming companies and businesses that are making waves in the world of baby must haves. For example I fell in love with everything Little Unicorn when I was pregnant with Ella, and it was so nice to have an actual store front I could go to, to see and buy the product. They often host pop up shops with the brands they work with, offering amazing deals to their customers. They even price match! If you can find it, even on amazon, for a lower price, they will honor that. They also offer free shipping on orders over $49 for those who don't live here in Utah who want to take advantage of their awesome selection. You can read more about their passion behind what they do HERE.

I have put together a little round up of some of my favorite picks from their site, I know you guys will love all the different brands represented on their site!


Little Unicorn Blankets and Sheets // I am such a huge fan of the Little Unicorn designs, and have a ton of blankets and sheets for Ella. I plan to get some for little brother too!

Nuna Pippa and Nuna Rava // I have both of these car seats and am obsessed. I love all Nuna gear! Not only does it look good, it functions with such ease. Everything makes sense, is easy to use, and I just can't say enough about this company and brand.  

Tubby Todd // I have tried the shampoo and love it! The scents are scrumptious, and knowing what I am using on my little one is completely safe is the best. I have been dying to get my hands on the rest of the products in this line, I have heard so many good things.

ComoTomo
// I have become a HUGE fan of these bottles. Ella loves them, and they were the perfect transition from breast to bottle.

Happy Baby Wrap // I mean, it is kind of a newborn must! Not only does baby love being close to mama, but what mama doesn't want the constant snuggles of their little one right on their chest?!

Freshly Picked Moccs // I mean, are you surprised? These are everywhere, and for good reason! They are adorable, comfortable, and the perfect first shoe!
