GIVEAWAY: Lightspeed Quick Shelter Tent! (US/CAN) -CLOSED-


Winner

This Lightspeed Quick Shelter tent is SOOO cool!  Whether you want shelter from the sun, wind, or rain, this does the trick.  And it's easy to put up and carry!  I always make my husband do things that are tent related, but I tried this out by myself to see if it really is easy.  Sure enough...I could do it!  I put it up and took it down in seconds!


We took it to the park today and it was especially handy to have because it kept raining off and on.  Kids don't really care about taking cover from the rain, but they had fun just hanging out in it and looking at each other through the windows.


Between going to the park, parades, (hopefully) the beach, and our backyard, I can see us using this a TON this summer!  I also thought it would be fun to take camping as a kids play tent.  Since it's easy to put up and down and as big as a camp chair it would definitely be fun to have!


I also like how, if needed, you can bring the flap up to be more protected.  It's always nice to have that option.  It's also very kid friendly...meaning durable.  I could also easily lift it up and shake out all the crumbs.   The Lightspeed Quick Shelter Tents can be purchased at Costco or Sam's Club online or in-store for $64.99 or on Amazon for $56.75!

Watched the video; this would be a perfect addition to our family. I had a baby last year and haven't taken him too the beach due to the scorching sun, but this would be a great (and portable) solution!

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
