Five Minute Friday:: Depend

I have teamed up with a wonderful team of bloggers who participate in “Five Minute Friday.” Here’s the skinny: Every Friday for nearly four years hundreds of people joined a kind of writing flash mob. We write for five minutes flat. All on the same prompt that is posted by the the team starting at 10pm EST on Thursday night and all through Friday. And we connect on Twitter with the hashtag #FMFParty (It stands for Five Minute Friday Party). No extreme editing; no worrying about perfect grammar, font, or punctuation. Unscripted. Unedited. Real. Today’s word: Depend. Dependence is something that is passed down...

Fall Is In The Air…

Fall is in the air, and I have been itching to get outside and switch our yard from summer to fall. That means, warm colored mums, potted plants, scarecrows, and pumpkins. All things that are loved by children and parents alike! A new addition to the garden this year is a beautiful Solar Wind Spinner, that I have already gotten several compliments on. This wind spinner is a perfect accent piece to any garden, and a great decorative add-on to any yard. Although the singular solar light bulb certainly won’t be lighting up an entire walkway, it does produce multi-changing...

Our Annual Pilgrimage to Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store

Summer has come and gone, and of all of the remaining items on our bucket list that have gone unchecked, none made us more sad than the inability to get to Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store. Much to our childrens’ liking, we saved the best for last! We spent our Labor Day roaming the rows of sugary goodness with hundreds of strangers on a similar mission. The Mojitos & Munchkins family conquered Minnesota’s Largest Candy Store, and we did so in style! Follow the Yellow Wood Gate Long before you get to the building itself, you’ll see a BRIGHT yellow fence. This...

Review:: Fabric Loveseat Sofa with Pillows in Purple from Best Choice Products

Up for review today is a Fabric Loveseat Sofa With Pillows from Best Choice Products.  Inside The Box When a big box arrives at your doorstep, it can be intimidating as much as it is exciting. In this case, there is no need to feel the slightest bit anxious at assembling a new couch! In fact, one of my favorite features is how easy it was to put together. No joke. Assembly is FAST – With only 2 parts to put together to assemble the couch itself and then screwing in the 4 legs on the bottom. The box contained...

Mid-Summer Reflection

Summer is in full swing – and, as always, threatening to come and go MUCH faster than we would prefer. The Mojitos & Munchkins crew has had a busy – but exciting – few months of summer so far. Check out seven of our highlights! The Start of Summer Gone are the days of early morning rising, running to catch the school bus, and math homework at nights. Also gone are the days of schedules and time management, activities and running amuck. This summer, our goal has been to RELAX and BREATHE. We have tried *VERY* hard to stick to a...

Review:: The Bug Bite Thing

This tiny, easy-to-pack, simple-to-use, summer accessory is arguably our new FAVORITE thing! When you live in Minnesota (a.k.a The land of 10,000 mosquitos), you begin associating summer months with big red scratchy welts on your body. We’ve accepted it as the way it is, but it doesn’t mean we have to like it. Up until this summer, I was slathering questionable ingredients all over my children’s’ bodies to try and ease the pain and discomfort that comes with bug bites. After being introduced to The Bug Thing, those days are gone. Now, only a quick 30 seconds stand between the...
