Weekday evenings are the busiest time of day for my family. We have to do school/babysitter pickup, dinner, homework, and our bedtime routine – times 4 – all in just over 2 hours. It can be difficult to make evenings enjoyable and not just a rush to get everything done. I am always looking for creative ways to make ordinary moments extraordinary, and this week Goldfish crackers helped make that happen!
Have you heard the expression: “Cleaning with a toddler is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos?” It’s 100% true – but #GooGone makes the work go faster – so the kids have less time to make new messes while you are busy cleaning!
I am still in disbelief that the kids are going back to school next week! Whether you are getting ready to send your kids off for the first time, or for the last time, here are some fun ideas to make back-to-school fun and memorable for your child(ren).
I’d be willing to argue that kids waking up before parents are ready is the number one complaint among sleep-deprived parents. Before kids can read a clock, they can recognize colors! So I created a super simple solution – a color-coded clock!

Subscription boxes are popping up like daisies. Wherever your passions and interests lie, chances are there is a subscription service to fuel your fun. It’s no secret that I am a wine lover. Not a connoisseur by any means – just a mom who enjoys a sip of a semi-dry after a long day of mommy duties. Discovering Club W and their personalized wine delivery service was a dream come true. I waited no time at all to get started exploring their wine options.
Club W offers a little quiz asking questions about how you like your coffee, salt, citrus and more to build some initial recommendations for you – or you can opt to explore on your own. I enjoyed taking the quiz and also had a pretty good idea of what I was looking for (semi-dry, no oak). I selected 2 chardonnays, a rose, and a white blend.
My wine arrived quickly (within a week) and the box is well made with a sturdy and convenient handle on one side. Because it’s alcohol, someone 21+ must sign for the package when it’s delivered, so it’s recommended that you ship to work if someone is not typically home during the day. I love that so much thought went into the box it’s shipped in. It’d be easy and convenient to receive it at work and transport it home. Without that handle, I know I’d be clumsily trying to carry the box through the parking lot and something bad would likely happen (lol).
All my wine arrived safe and sound, and I uncorked bottle #1 last week, and bottle #2 this weekend! I was able to go back into my account on Club W and rate the wines (I definitely preferred one over the other) and Club W will take my ratings into consideration as they continue to make recommendations for me! I also love that each wine comes with an information card which includes a recipe it pairs well with, which will help me when I am entertaining.
Getting wine delivered to your door is quite possibly the best thing ever – and I am so glad I gave Club W a try! I am looking forward to trying new wines and finding a couple favorites to order by the case and always keep on hand, too! They have a great promotion going on now – you can save $20 off your first order! Plus, if you order 4 or more bottles you receive free shipping! And, they have great referral perks too – so after you try it, you can share your referral link with your friends and you both will benefit from discounts!
After you try your first wines, come back and let me know what you think!
