Text Like a Pirate:

Get this Say What?! Pirate Pack for only $.99
plus you’ll get a FREE $1 MP3 Credit when you order it!






Basic Pirate Lingo:

Avast! - Stop and give attention. It can be used in a sense of surprise, “Whoa! Get a load of that!” which today makes it more of a “Check it out” or “No way!”
Aye!“Why yes, I agree most heartily with everything you just said or did.”
Aye aye!“I’ll get right on that sir, as soon as my break is over.”
Arrr! – This one is often confused with arrrgh, which is of course the sound you make when you sit on a belaying pin. “Arrr!” can mean, variously, “yes,” “I agree,” “I’m happy,” “I’m enjoying this Diet Coke.”  

Pirate Jokes (Harrdy-haarr-haarr):

Q: What is a pirate’s favorite kind of cookie
–A: Ships Ahoy!

Q: Whay are pirates so mean?
–A: I don’t know they just aaarrgghhh!

Q: What to pirate’s like to eat?
–A: Barrrrbeque!

Purell – A Must For Back To School



Purell hand sanitizer is my most trusted brand, I always have a bottle in my car and my purse.

With back to school, I made sure each of the kids had a bottle attached to their backpacks. It’s such a quick and simple way to make sure their hands are clean and germ free before snack, or after playing on the playground.

I know that my family and I always get the most sick within the first month of school with all the new germs being brought home. Since I have made it a priority to teach them to wash their hands and apply hand sanitizer every time after using the restroom or before eating, I have noticed a major decrease in the amount of colds and sniffles in our household.

My children are always excited to pick out the new scents such as: cool melon lime, watermelon, spring blossom, or my favorite, just the original scent! I also love that they have reusable cases for the mini bottles so it will always be within arms reach on your purse, backpack, or anything else you choose.

So to keep your family healthy this year and help your children practice good hygiene, make sure you send them to school everyday with hand sanitizer and tell them to use it often!

Fun and Educational Snack with Dick and Jane


Dick and Jane Baking Company has mastered bringing treats and education together. Their delicious, all-natural snacks are loaded with learning. Dick & Jane Educational Snacks cookies are currently available in 3 subjects: States & Capitals, Presidents and English & Spanish.


Educational snacks are great because children are known to soak up so much information and knowledge without even knowing it, especially from birth to age seven, perfect for this snack age category!

Each cookie snack is healthy, packed with whole grain nutrition, and is 100% nut free. The thing that appeals to me most is the fact that every snack has:

  • No Nuts
  • No Trans Fat
  • No Cholesterol
  • No Artificial Flavors
  • No Artificial Colors
  • No Hydrogenated Oils
  • No High Fructose Corn Syrup


I know that bright colored package and slightly sweet taste is what would usually appeal to moms, but my children like them too! Knowing how natural, healthy, AND educational they are makes me feel good about giving them to my children.

I know many children and adults who are allergic to many thing such as nuts, high fructose corn syrup, and artificial colors. So it is comforting that these things never even make it into their factory. Parents can feel at ease with their children sharing these snacks, or even having them for themselves. The Dick and Jane Baking Company has set a high standard that pleases many people, and I hope that many others will follow in their footsteps!

KIND Bars are the Perfect Lunchbox Snack


I have 7 kids and they are always hungry…when the wake up, during school, after school and even before bed after they have eaten a huge dinner.  I am not a huge fan of other so called nutrition bars that are filled with artificial flavor color and tons of sugar…. I might as well be giving them a candy bar.

KIND bars are full of flavor and nutrition. They are made with 100% whole grains, all natural NON GMO ingredients and free from artificial flavors and colors. Another great thing is the are all gluten FREE.


KIND has so many flavors and varieties that I can even list them all – visit KINDs website to look for yourself and if you are interested in having them delivered straight to your door check out KIND Bars on Amazon.

My kids have enjoyed eating these and I enjoy that they are eating something so healthy and something for them that is hearty enough that keeps them satisfied for several hours and at a cost of about $1 each bar… I find that to be a huge value. These are perfect to pack around for lunch, before sports or even an afternoon snack. Look for them at a store near you.

Disclosure: I received a variety of bars to try and give my honest opinion.
