The Clue is In the Blue! (LUVS New & Improved Diapers)

We've actually been fans of Luvs diapers for years {we used them for Lo as well}, but we've used them almost exclusively since Kenzie was born. We love the cloth like texture, the adorable patterns {especially the monkey that is on the size 4 diapers since that's my nickname for Kenzie}, and the fact that they are totally non bulky {there's nothing that ruins a cute little outfit more than a chunky diaper bootie}. But what really keeps us going back for Luvs {besides necessity} is the fact that they have all the effectiveness of other brands, without the dent in the wallet.

Absorbency is always an important feature in a diaper {I mean, that's the whole point, right?}, but that becomes especially key as your little one gets older. You don't want overnight leaks {which is why the new Night Lock feature is great}, and as they get bigger and their bladders hold more liquid, you'll find that though you may be changing diapers less frequently, you definitely need a diaper that can handle your littles new capacity for... uh... pee {lol}.

We were already quite satisfied with how well Luvs worked for us, but now their most absorbent diaper is available at Walmart! Luvs Super Absorbent diapers have a contoured shape with leak barrier leg gathers, for a snug, comfortable fit. And with an ultra absorbent leakguard core that helps lock wetness away from baby’s skin, they absorb even more than regular LuvsJust look for the special blue seal on the package...

So just remember, #theclueisintheblue ! Now that the secret is out, make sure to look for these Kenzie tested, Mama approved Luvs diapers at your local Walmart!

Until next time...

Make Back to School Grand with Pillsbury!

Grands! Grilled Cheese Sandwiches:

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but if you asked my girls I'm sure they'd say the most important meal {to them at least} is the after school snack!

Peyton and Lo both have bizarre lunch schedules-they each dine at the school cafeteria before 11 AM! Lo gets home at around 3 PM and Peyton gets home closer to 5-so you can imagine they are close to ravenous by the time they walk through the door! I've learned {the hard way} that life is better for everyone if I have a good snack for them when they get home everyday. But there's a fine balance between giving them a filling snack that will tide them over until dinner time and something that will keep them from enjoying our evening meal. And considering that most days I've already cooked at least one meal before they get home from school {and will be cooking another one before night's end}, I really don't want to do anything that's gonna wreck my small kitchen {and pile even more cleaning work to my load}. So this recipe using Pillsbury Grands! Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits {sent for feature consideration} is right up our alley!

One of the reason I love this simple recipe for Grands Grilled Cheese Sandwiches {find the recipe here} is that it only require one pot, makes minimal mess, and is very easily customized to suit your kids' tastes {I opted to use cheddar cheese instead of American and added a slice of turkey to a couple of them}.

These delicious biscuits were a hit amongst everyone {the hubby included}! Peyton said she loved how it was cheesy and gooey like a traditional grilled cheese sandwich, but it had an added sweetness because of the Pillsbury Grands! Refrigerated Buttermilk Biscuits. I also noticed that where my kids would usually eat two traditional grilled cheese sandwiches a piece, replacing the bread with biscuits made it way more satisfying for my girls and they only needed one sandwich each!
