Our trip to Galveston this year.

We're planning a trip this summer to drive to Galveston, Tx with the kids.  This will be our very first family road trip and we are all SO excited!   One thing that you do need for a road trip is snacks.  Twizzlers is a fun go to candy for road trips in my house.  They aren't messy and they don't melt, always a plus!  Check out for some great Twizzlers fun!

It would be so fun to go to New York when the kids are older and of course we would take some Twizzlers along too.  :)

I'm entering a contest for a Twizzlers Landmark Summer promotion prize pack as a member of the Mom Bloggers Club.  If I win we will have a some Twizzlers to add to our snack stash for our road trip.

Let's not forget the Teachers!

The week Monday May 2nd to Friday May 6th is Teacher appreciation week.  My oldest son is in Kindergarten this year.  We LOVE his teacher!   She goes above and beyond our expectations all of the time. 

I love to read blogs all the time and I know that 
I came across this idea somewhere.   
But, I can't for the life of me remember what blog that was....

I bought a house plant for $5 and some teacher gift card holders at Dollar Tree.  Then, I bought a $5 gift cards to Sonic, 
Target, Chick Fil A, Dollar Tree and Starbucks.  
I got 6 of those flower picks at the store where I bought the plant.  
Then I put all of the gift cards on the picks and a card on the last pick. 
I had some ribbon here with ABCs on it and made a bow.

So there you have it!   A very simple gift that I think my son's teacher will love.  He wants to carry it in to the school tomorrow but, I told him that I would act like a delivery person and deliver it to her.   lol
