*Sponsored post by Lunchbox*

Summer is just around the corner, and if your weather is anything like the heat wave we’re having this week you may think it has already arrived! We love to spend our Summer weekends chilling by the pool and grilling out with our family and friends. We use any excuse we can find for a celebration with lots of great food and fun.

Get ready to plan your perfect Summer celebrations with the Free “Kick Off Your Summer” cookbook from Kraft! The free cookbook is packed full of recipes that are sure to be a hit at your next Summer gathering.

I’m going to serve the Mini Memphis-Style BBQ Burgers at our Summer Has Arrived party next weekend, and I think the PHILADELPHIA Fruit Pizza looks like a great dessert to serve at our 4th of July party along with the Strawberry-Watermelon Coolers. Sounds good, doesn’t it?

Are you unsure of what to do this Summer to have a great time with your family and friends? The cookbook also includes a great checklist of fun and family oriented Summer activities!

You can download your FREE copy of the “Kick Off Your Summer” cookbook from Kraft by clicking the image below.

Don’t forget to stop by back by to tell us which recipe is your favorite. There are so many great ones to choose from it’s going to be hard to pick just one!

Celebrating Firsts With New Pampers Swaddlers Larger Sizes #Giveaway

This review was made possible by Double Duty Divas and Pampers. I was provided the featured product free of charge to facilitate my review, but all opinions are 100% mine.

As this year is nearing the end I have to look back on everything that has happened in our lives this year while thinking forward to what is to come. We have celebrated a lot of special moments this year with the most important one being the birth of Aubrey.

We now have one in diapers full time again and one who uses them occasionally at night for bed wetting.  Ellie doesn’t weigh enough for the overnight pants for big kids, and training pants just don’t hold up well for her.  That means we’ve created a lot of memories this year in diapers, especially a lot of Aubrey’s “Firsts”.

Aubrey made her first trip home from the hospital in her cute little onesie and a Pampers on her bottom.  It was so hot that day I decided to ditch the little pants.  Now that Aubrey is a week shy of 6 months she has rolled over front to back, sat up for more than 5 minutes without falling over, found her toes, giggled at her sister, smiled at us, tasted her first bite of yummy food, and learned how to hold and play with her toys.  That’s a lot of firsts, but the one thing I’m thankful she hasn’t experienced in her first diaper rash thanks to staying nice and dry in her Pampers Swaddlers.

Actually both of my girls made their maiden voyage home from the hospital in a Swaddlers, even preemie Ellie.  I remember how thankful I was at the time to find preemie sized Pampers after the Pampers at the hospital swallowed her little body!

Now I’m thankful those same Pampers Swaddlers I trust are available in size 4 and 5!  That means Ellie can ditch the diapers we’ve been forced to use at night that she leaks out of more than I would like and go back to something I can trust to keep her from soaking the bed while being soft on her sensitive skin at the same time.

Pampers wants to celebrate the addition of size 4 and 5 diapers in their softest diaper ever with 30 Days of Giveaways with really awesome prizes like the grand prize of free Swaddlers diapers and wipes for a year!  Prize bundles will be given away daily, so make sure you hop over to the Pampers Facebook page for your chance to win!
