Wordless Wednesday: Garden Spider

Wordless Wednesday: Garden Spider | SensiblySara.com

I was up at my sister's house earlier this week.  She has this gorgeous garden spider in her front yard.  We threw a grasshopper into her web so she could eat.  It was really amazing! Let's be clear, though.  While I think this garden spider is beautiful, if I saw it in my home, I'd have to kill it.  I'm glad it's at my sister's house! Happy Wednesday! … [Continue]

Marie Callender’s Comforts from Home Project #ComfortsFromHome

**Full Disclosure: I have been selected by Tap Influence to be a spokesperson for Marie Callender's While I have been compensated for my time, my opinions are my own. My husband served 4 years in the US Army as an Intelligence Analyst. We were lucky that he never had to leave the comforts of home but many men and women aren't as fortunate. Americans sleep soundly because of the brave men and women who fight for our freedoms. It's been a number of years since my husband has donned BDUs, but I am so grateful to him and all the other men and women, past or present, who wear those uniforms. The only thing I can do to show my gratitude is thank a soldier. But Marie Callender's will launch the Comforts from Home Project by bringing the comforts of home to those who protect America's homes every day: the brave men and women of the U.S. military. I think the project is just one small way for the company to show their appreciation. On Veteran's Day, November 11, "A Hero's … [Continue]

Hard Rock Roxtars® + “Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star?” Costume Contest #ThisIsHardRock #HRRoxtars

HR Roxtars Logo

**Full Disclosure: I received a Hard Rock gift card in exchange for this post.  Additionally, no celebrity or musician has endorsed the “Does Your Child Look Like a Rock Star” contest.  All opinions are my own. Downtown San Antonio is beautiful, but there are so many tourists and one-way streets that I tend to avoid it.  However, there are a ton of good restaurants down there!  Hard Rock is one of those eateries.  They have a wide variety of American food choices on the menu. In … [Continue]

Restaurant: Impossible Interview with Chef Robert Irvine {plus #Giveaway}

Chef Robert Irvine

**Full Disclosure: I will receive a gift bag in exchange for this post.  No other compensation was provided.  All thoughts and opinions are my own. I was recently given the opportunity to ask Chef Robert Irvine a couple of questions about making food a central part in your next trip or sightseeing adventure.  I thought it sounded neat, so I sent over the following questions … 1.) What's your best tip for staying healthy while traveling? 2.) How do you find the best local restaurants … [Continue]

Clothes Schools generally have control over P.E. … [Continue]

Kids in the Kitchen: Pizza Dip

Pumpkin Shaped Pizza Dip | SensiblySara.com

My kids love snack foods but then, I do too, so it's to be expected.  Every time I've made this pizza dip recipe just for us or for a party, it's been a huge hit.  I am using the recipe in an up-coming post so I'm not sharing it today, but check back on October 28th, for the post! Anyway, Colin was willing to help me make the dip so I could photograph it.  He did most of the work but I evened out the cream cheese and put the dish in the oven. YUM!  It was just as good this time … [Continue]

Suave leaves me feeling beautiful!

suave hub 3

**Full Disclosure: This is a sponsored post.  All opinions, as always, are my own. With two boys and a bald husband, I don't think I have much of a need for many beauty tips or hair care tricks.  Additionally, I am not a 'girly girl' and I don't pay much attention to my hair and make-up.  With all of that said, I would tell you my best hair care trick would be to use Suave.  It's my favorite brand for body wash, shampoo & conditioner!  After I wash my hair and blow dry my bangs, most … [Continue]

Eyeball Cake Plate (or Candle Stand) #DIY

Eyeball Cake Plate (or Candle Stand) | SensiblySara.com

I love cake plates, but I really don't have the space to store a zillion of them.  However, when I had the idea for this eyeball cake plate I knew I had extra storage space in my Halloween box so I went ahead and purchased the necessary supplies and put it together.  I love how it turned out! The eyeball cake plate (or candle stand) craft is very simple to make, but it’s definitely something kids cannot do on their own because of the super glue used. What You’ll Need:  1 Melamine … [Continue]

Howl O Scream Date Night | SensiblySara.com

**Full Disclosure:  As Sea World’s VIP guest, my husband and I received free admission to Howl-O-Scream, a Quick Queue pass, and dinner.  All opinions are my own. When the kids got home from school, I dropped them off to spend the night with Grandma & Geezer.  Then the hubs and I headed over to Sea World San Antonio to check out this year's Howl-O-Scream: 'CURSED.' Photo Credit: Colleen at San Antonio Mom Blogs We started with dinner at Fright Feast: Cirque du Soulless.  It was a … [Continue]

Kids in the Kitchen: HEB Cooking Classes

HEB Cooking Classes

Just last week I was making dinner and Colin said, "I want to help you make the rest of dinner."  I was thrilled to hear those words!  But I didn't let him see my excitement.  I responded with, "Cool!  What would you like to help with?"  And he helped me finish off the meal. Not only was it nice to have someone helping me, I felt really good about continuing to teach Colin to be self-sufficient.  But sometimes kids don't want to listen to their parents.  (That can't really be true, can it?!) … [Continue]

LISTERINE Products | SensiblySara.com

**Full Disclosure: I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating. Oral care is so important.  The lack of oral hygiene could lead to tooth decay and gum disease.  In addition, oral health problems could lower the body's resistance to infection and might contribute to other diseases. I can't tell you how often I stress the importance of oral hygiene (heroic … [Continue]
