Metal Detecting with TricDigger

One thing that our oldest son has become fascinated with is metal detecting. It has quickly grown to a family and friends thing with him. He loves going out and spending time in nature as it is but the metal detecting has him going on adventures now. Not only is he finding neat things but also historical stuff. This hobby has proved to be a awesome one because it also helps clean trash and broken glass out of our rivers and lakes.

Zak! Popcorn Bowl Set Review

*This post contains affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, you'll be helping to feed the little angels here at Andersons Angels.

One thing my family LOVES is popcorn! We make 2-3 bags every time we make it in our house. One problem we have always ran into was having a enough bowls for everyone, or the kids fighting over which bowl they got. You would like the solution would be to put it all in one big bowl right? Wrong that seems to make the fighting over the popcorn worse. So I was excited when I teamed up with zak! designs to review a set of their popcorn bowls.

 It seems like Summer came to a end to quickly this year. Luckily we had planned a great family trip to close out the kids summer before school started back into session. Though the trip started off on a very rocky note thanks to our car dyeing as soon as we got into Florida we did not let that keep us from making the most of everything. We got to spend a week away with the kids just relaxing and reconnecting.

It feels like it has been forever since I have been on here with all my wonderful readers. I took most of 2020 off to focus on my family. I did not have much free time thanks to having to home school 4 of my kids at the end of the school thanks to the pandemic. I discovered that I am not cut out to homeschool such a vast range of school grades. I had a 9th, 6th, 3rd and Kindergartener needless to say I am happy they are all back in school now and my sanity is slowly coming back. A few BIG things that happened last year were Jake and I celebrated our 15 year Wedding Anniversary, I flew on a plane for the first time and Bubba turned 16!

What's Going On...

Some of you may have noticed that I have not been posting much on here lately and neither have the other writers. We are all still around just been very busy with life and kids. I personally have needed a break from social media. I have been focusing on my kids who are growing up way to fast in my opinion. We have been dealing with a lot of health issues with our oldest daughter and are working with the doctors to see if we can get some answers. I have so much I want to do anymore and I just can not find the time to do it all. 

We have been working on getting our home remodeled in the hopes that we can sell it soon. We have started a 2-3 plan to try and achieve our goal we set. Life is quickly changing around here in some ways for the better and others I am just not sure about. There are days that I feel like I could just give up and walk away and no one would really notice until they needed something. Then there are days that I could not even imagine my life without all this wonderful craziness. 

On top of my blog and being a full time stay at home mom I have been running two businesses as well. I have my own clothing boutique through HelloPink and I opened up a Etsy shop to sell some of my crafts. My older children are now working on crafts that they can sell in my shop as well. What started off as a small adventure for me has sparked the creativity of my children and I love that. 

So just because we are not on here posting please know that we have not given up on the blog. It is just life has taken us to pause from it for a bit.

Media Masters Publicity BOOK REVIEW: Disney Stories for 2 + 3 year olds

How perfect are these Disney books for specific age groups. My LO is now 3.5 and we still read every night. It is a great way to bond with your child. Most of these short stories have a few sentences on each page and less than 15 pages. I know after a long day of working, cooking, cleaning, running a toddler, and taking care of my husband and two dogs, by the end of the night I am SPENT! These short stories have beautiful illustrations which my LO loves.

New Year, New Goals

I know that we all start the New Year with goals that we want to reach in the New Year. Almost all of us fail at the goals we set within the first few weeks. I am very guilty of that myself so this year I decided to switch things up. Instead of making the normal weight loss goals for myself I decided to make goals of getting my house in order to sell. We quickly outgrew our home no sooner than we moved in. We are slowly working on getting out of debt and getting things in order for what we would like to do with our future. 

We sent 2019 out the window in Florida with family and new friends. The two weeks we spent in Florida really opened my eyes to what needs to be done for my family. I have decided to no longer do what makes everyone else happy. Instead I am going to do what makes my family happy and healthy. Since our oldest son is now in High School and starting to think about college and careers I have made sure he knows that he can go after his dreams even if it means he is not close to me. I do not want my children trapped in a state that has nothing to offer them. 

So welcome to the New Year! We hope you will follow along with the blog this year and all the adventures we hope to go on. I am hoping to bring you more recipes and travel posts this year. I will be posting soon all the different parks we visited while in Florida.
