I LOVE Halloween. So much that I secretly start stalking all my favorite stores around the middle of August eagerly awaiting the first sign of Halloween treats and decorations. One of the first things we usually find, or my son usually finds is the Halloween Oreos. You know the ones where they replace the white cream with the orange. I love creating spooky snacks for my son throughout the month of October to help get us in the Halloween spirit. Since we are getting ready for our annual Halloween Party, we had some fun this weekend creating some spooky snack ideas with Wheat Thins and Oreos.

Shhhh! I'm Sharing My Secret for Spending Less Time Doing Laundry - #FastDrySaveTime

Doing the laundry is probably my least favorite chore. Probably because it's time consuming and I'd rather be doing a hundred other things than washing, drying and folding clothes. With a brand new baby at home, my time is even more precious and I'd rather be cuddling with her or playing with my son instead of doing the laundry. But I digress, laundry needs to be done. It's just one of those unfortunate things that we have to do. So I'm sharing a my little secret that's helped me make the best of laundry day and even helped me save time when doing the laundry. Time is precious so anything I can do to spend more time with my family, I'm all for it. That's why I'm excited about Suavitel, a fabric softener that actually dries your laundry 30% faster!

Get Creative with Creative Galaxy - A New Art Adventure Series by Amazon Prime Instant Video

Ever since my son could pick up a crayon he loved to draw. So it's no surprise that he loves art class and drawing and creating fun projects. In fact, one of our favorite things to do in the winter when it's too cold to go out is art projects. Whether it's a homemade gift for someone or a picture just for me, I love to help him explore his creative side. That's why I was excited to learn about Creative Galaxy, a new interactive art adventure series on Amazon Prime Instant Video.

Shop Acme's #StockUpSale & Make These Easy Buffalo Chicken Sliders

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Acme Markets. All opinions are my own. 

This week is the final week of Acme's #StockUpSale and they have a great deal on Perdue or Lancaster Brand Chicken Breasts. They're all buy one get one free. I like to stock my freezer full of meat during deals like this. Not only do I save money but I always have something on hand to throw in the crock pot or make for dinner. Speaking of my crock pot, these Buffalo Chicken Sliders are an easy dinner recipe for busy nights.

With just a few simple ingredients, this is an easy dinner for busy weeknights or days you just don't feel  cooking. Set everything in the crock pot in the morning and go. Dinner is ready when you get home.
