Best Toys for Kids Who Love to Explore and Discover

SoFab Disclosure

I have two very active kids. My youngest,, who is four, is always exploring the world around him and trying to discover pretty much anything new he can. I love finding toys that help him discover new and exciting sounds, activities and ways to view the world. I have started shopping for his Christmas presents and found a few of the best toys for kids who love to explore and discover just like he does!

Creamy Baked Avocado Pasta

I am so excited to be partnering with Hass Avocado to share with you my new found love of avocados and all the health benefits they offer. As always, even though this post was compensated, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

As a kid, I ran away from anything that had avocado in it. It was one of those ridiculous situations where I had never really tried an avocado but was convinced I didn’t like it. Thankfully, as an adult, I became a little wiser and fell in love with avocados. I eat them on toast, in salads and, of course, in guacamole. I have also started cooking with avocados more and it all started with this creamy baked avocado pasta.

All the health benefits of avocado in a delicious pasta bake! #LoveOneToday #ad

Time to Link Up to the Pinworthy Projects Party

So, I’m back from vacation…like literally just got off the flight. Imagine 5 days with no internet. In some ways, it was a great way to recharge but in others I was freaking out about what I could possible be missing. I clearly didn’t have a chance to review what was linked up last night so no features this week {#sadpanda}. BUT, I can’t wait to see what you’ve got this week so I can pin like crazy.

Mini House Tour {Guest Post}

I love taking peeks into other blogger’s homes. Today, we are taking a little sneak peak at Kathryn’s entryway and front porch. Want to come along on the mini house tour?
******************************************************
I’m so excited to be guest posting today for Shannah!  My name is Kathryn and I blog at The Dedicated House.  I’m married with one little daughter who is fun and feisty and keeps me on my toes.  
 
We recently moved into a traditional Colonial; so today I wanted to share our front porch and entryway with you.  
 
 
We just moved in and I haven’t had a moment to really decorate for Fall.  Also, it is almost nearly impossible to take pictures without one of our felines deciding to pop in the picture.

Hi, my name is Shauna and I blog over at The Best Blog Recipes.  I am so excited to share one of our recipes today with Shannah  and all of you here on Just Us Four! It’s that time of year when my kitchen is very busy getting ready for holiday parties and big family get togethers. It can be hard sometimes when you want to take a dessert but don’t know what everyone will like.  I know a lot of our family isn’t a huge fan of pumpkin so that’s why I make something that’s easy and just has a light pumpkin flavor so that it isn’t overwhelming to those who don’t really like it all that much.

Orange Cream Monster Bread

I am always so excited when I get to partner with brands my family loves. While this post was sponsored by TruMoo, as always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Halloween is just around the corner! I know it is totally crazy to think about it already being mid-October but here we are. We are headed out of town for a few days so I wanted to make sure our Halloween costumes were all set and maybe do a little early Halloween celebrating too with a few baking projects. We did a few but one of my favorites was this orange cream monster bread.

A great Halloween snack that is so easy to make too! This orange cream monster bread is the neatest idea for our Boo bags.

skulls-1

Hello friends! I’m Amy from Mod Podge Rocks (and DIY Candy, and Washi Tape Crafts!). I think we’re all in the Halloween mode, and I had to share a recently completed project with you that I just LOVE. I’m a huge fan of the Dollar Tree, and it’s always a fun challenge to head there and see what I can come up with. I knew I wanted to do something Halloween-related and use FolkArt Extreme Glitter, but besides that, I had no idea what I was doing when I walked into the Dollar Tree. It was SO much fun, and this skull wreath resulted.
