Night Cereal: Oaxacan Mole Chex Cereal!

Brought to you by got milk? Food Loves Milk!

To say that I am completely inept in the kitchen is probably generous. I often joke I married a chef so I wouldn’t starve. My husband, Michael does try to teach me things and I’ve picked up a couple edible dinners that I can feed my family. Don’t worry – Michael created this recipe, and it’s amazing! I love the idea of “Night Cereal” because our kids love anything that accompanies milk and they think were cool parents for letting them have cereal for dinner. BONUS, they got to help prepare it – which they love. When I told them the plan they were like, “Wait….you’re going to let us make food AND we get cereal for dinner?…” That’s right kids! Cool Mom in the house!

Back to School Sweepstakes with Ralph’s!

Thank you Ralph’s Grocery for sponsoring this post & giveaway!

Me waiting for the first day of school like:

Are you as ready as I am for the first day of the school?! Don’t get me wrong, being up earlier totally sucks BUT I feel ready to get back to our routine about 1.5 weeks into Summer. My kids love school and being busy, so they are ready too. All praises to teachers everywhere – you’re incredible.


Ralph’s is a major grocery chain in California that specializes in fresh foods at low prices; allowing you to eat healthy without breaking the bank. But there is still so much more that Ralph’s offers it’s shoppers, such as school supplies – basically, it’s a one-stop shop! Let’s be honest, I avoid shopping with my kiddos as much as possible.

So who wants to win $100 for themselves and $100 for a friend to spend at Ralph’s on Back to School goodness?! Go to my Instagram Post and tag a friend to enter! That’s it!

Hefty® Ultra Strong™ Live Party!

Thank you Hefty® Ultra Strong™  for sponsoring this post and having Ruby & I at your fabulous party!

View More: week Ruby Mae and I attended a super fun party to celebrate Hefty® Ultra Strong™’s newest campaign and awesome products. Wrestler, host and actor John Cena combines strength and humor for Hefty in a new campaign for Hefty Ultra Strong™ trash bags, the brand’s best bag ever for an ultra-low price. I fell in love with John Cena when I saw him in the movie Trainwreck with Amy Schumer, super funny.

IMG_5874Ruby & I got gussied up with excitement to head to the Hefty® Ultra Strong™ Live Party! We really like parties. And snacks.


We both really liked the Olympics theme of the party! Side note: I’m really excited for the Olympics to start this Friday! It’s like one of the last things the world comes together to participate in. There is a lot of beauty in it.

View More: More: More: adorable. Jude wants an American Themed birthday party this September, so I was taking lots of notes. So fun that Hefty® Ultra Strong™ is bringing back their “Hefty! Hefty! Hefty!” chant back for this new campaign. I showed Ruby the commercials (above) before we arrived at the party and she cracked up at the “Hefty!” voice.

View More: said that her favorite activity at the party was the Slime Station! Probably because her Type-A Mom doesn’t do too many activities in our house that involve messes. This activity however seemed to make zero mess and the kids had a blast!

View More: More: it was time for a much needed snack break.

View More: kids wearing the sweatbands – so adorable. Ruby was obsessed with her trophy and metal. Future Olympian.

View More: Guess the Scent Station was a fun and creative game as well. I don’t want to brag or anything but…I was told I guess the most right, so.

My favorite thing about the Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags happen to be the scents! They offer fresh, invigorating scents, including Clean Burst™, Tropical Paradise™, Lavender & Sweet Vanilla™, White Pine Breeze™, Crisp Orchard Apple™, Citrus Twist™, Pomegranate Mist™ and Scent Free if you’re not into that sort of thing like I am.

All versions offer ARM & HAMMER™ patented odor neutralizer, active tear resistant technology for better puncture-resistance and a break resistant grip drawstring that prevents the bag from falling inside the can! Hefty® Ultra Strong™ trash bags come with a 100% satisfaction guarantee: Hefty® can handle all your trash bag needs, or your money back.

I wanted to share the LIVE love with you all, so I gave Facebook LIVE a shot to give you guys a little tour of the party.

Special thank you to Leslie at  Green Vintage Photography for the lovely professional images featured in this post!

Until next time!

XOXO – Tiffany
