Try It Tuesday

Try It Tuesday New Product Banner

 

The past few months, I’ve been searching high and low for the products that are today’s Try It but I couldn’t find them ANYWHERE! Cut to me, my sister, and the kiddos at Dollar Tree yesterday (buying stuff for next week’s Try It) and finding these:

Eeeee! I was so excited! I had seen the Honey Nut at CVS, but that was it. And if I was going to try these, I wanted to try all three. First up, the Chili Nut!

The Chili Nut M&M’s were all colored in different variations of red. I won’t lie; I sniffed them to see if I could smell the chili-ha! You can’t. I popped three in my mouth and was surprised–it tasted like regular peanut M&M’s. Disappointed, I reached for the next bag. That’s when, woooo!, I felt the chili! It wasn’t crazy-spicy, but they definitely have a kick to them!

 

Next was Honey Nut.

These were, you guessed it, all variations of yellow. These were delish! I really liked them! They tasted like chocolate covered, honey roasted peanuts! Very tasty!

 

Finally, I tried the Coffee Nut. I’m a big coffee drinker and was really stoked about these!

These–surprise, surprise–brown M&M’s actually had an espresso smell to them. They. Were. Heavenly. I like coffee-flavored candy/chocolate so this was right up my alley!

 

If I had to choose a winner, though, I’d probably choose Honey Nut. I don’t buy candy that often (because, if I do, I’ll sit and eat the entire bag all at once and then be full of regret and chocolate) but I’d like this flavor to be available all the time for those moments that I want to sneak candy into the movies. Er, I mean…I don’t do that. *wink, wink*. After I tried them, I went to the M&M website and cast my vote for my favorite flavor!

Mommy Monday

Mommy Monday New Banner

 

This weekend was really hectic. We had three, count them THREE, birthday parties this weekend! Needless to say, I’ve eaten waaaayyyy too much cake in the past 72 hours. And, bonus, both of my kids passed out at naptime today because they had such a blasty blast!

On my Mommy Monday posts, I tend to talk about the frustrating, difficult, and downright annoying parts of being a parent.

Like when your toddler won’t eat.

Or how you finally get into bed for the night, only to have a child start crying for you in the other room.

Or, how you start the day with the best intentions of being a sweet, patient mom only to have it go out the window when its time to run errands.

But there are so many moments that being a parent is such a joy!

Like when your two and half month old smiles at you for the first time.

Or when you hear your two and half year old talking to her unicorn over breakfast: “You wanna go to Hollywood and see the Muppets?”

Or how your heart skips a beat when you see your husband rocking both kids in the rocking chair.

Happy Friday, y’all! Its been a KA-RA-ZEE week around here and I’ve been off my blogging game a bit. But, I’m back today with geeky goodies to get your weekend started on a nerdy note!

Am I the only one that sits around and wonders what life would be like if unicorns existed? And what would their farts smell like? Well, wonder no more! Perpetual Kid has you covered!

Bag of Unicorn Farts

This bag contains sachets full of the essence of unicorn methane! And, what’s better, 10% of your purchase goes toward the Unicorn Children’s Foundation, which helps nerodiverse children. Read more about the foundation here!

 

You guys know I have mad love for Harry Potter. And with Harry Potter and the Cursed Child as well as Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them coming out soon, its pretty much reigniting the flame. But so are these!

HP Coloring Book

Four, count them FOUR coloring books are hitting the shelves! They include the one above, magical places, magical creatures, and favorite characters! Check out more about the books here!

 

Game of Thrones isn’t known for its happy-go-lucky storylines (Hold the door, anyone?) nor for bringing people together (except Cersi and Jaime, amirite? Hey-oh!) But now, GoT is bringing people together for a fun game night with this!

Alice Through The Looking Glass hit theaters last week and the merch is EVERYWHERE! And I am LOVING it! Like this a-DORK-able dress from Hot Topic!

I seriously LURVE this dress! I don’t think I could pull it off, but I will totally gaze at it adoringly every time I pass HT whilst taking Huff the Tot to play at the mall playground.

 

Happy fangirling!
