 **Rug pad c/o RugPadUSA. All thoughts and opinions are my own.**

If you follow me on any of my other social media interfaces, you might have seen updates within the past couple of months of our house! We've done so much since we moved in that it looks like a completely different home!

Actually, come to think of it, we didn't do a lot. In fact, we only really did two updates, but they were HUGE changes. The biggest of the two updates was the floor. We ripped up the carpet in our living room and hallway, PLUS laid new flooring there as well as the kitchen, entryway, and mud-room/laundry room.

It. Was. Crazy. But we're so happy with it!

Of course, with hard floor comes the extra necessity of a rug, and with a flat weave rug like ours, a rug pad is kind of a necessity.

We needed something that was non-slip and provided a little cushion, and getting one that's eco friendly, made in the USA, and reasonably priced was pretty important to us, too.

I was a little worried about choosing the right pad because I wanted cushion, but I didn't want my rug noticeably lifted off the floor. Luckily, each product comes with a grip and cushion rating so it was really quite easy to make the right choice.

We went with the contour lock pad and the girls thought it was juuuuust right!

We couldn't be happier in our new home and love that it's a place we can pour our whole hearts, hard work, sweat, and finances... in to (because I don't plan on moving or re-doing floors again for a looooooonnnnng time.)

If you're in the market for a good rug pad, tell Rug Pad USA that Susanstange123 sent you for an additional 5% off the sale they have going on right now!

And a HUGE thank you to my cute little helpers. :)

Chocolate Pretzels!

Hey everybody! How ya been? Good? Good. Remember the chocolate bear from Barrett's smash cake in my last post? Well, I had leftover melted chocolate and about a million pretzels so I decided to cover those babies with the liquified deliciousness! It wasn't hard at all and, of course, I had a little help!

This activity ended up being perfect for me and my girls! Obviously, this it requires some supervision (we're working with a stove here!), but the heat level needed to melt chocolate/almond bark is really low, so you don't need to be too worried. Just be vigilant!

*note: my four-year-old is pretty trustworthy and helps keep everyone else in line, which is why I was able to take photos

The best part of all this? The kids had fun doing it, and Chelsea doesn't even LIKE chocolate pretzels - which means more for me and Alexa and Barrett... maybe... #selfishmom

Alexa's better at sharing than I am.

So if you're looking for something to help you pass the time with your kiddos that's fun and delicious, give this a try! Although, with Spring *finally* on its way, I don't know how many people are wanting to stay indoors right now. It's so gorgeous out there!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by!
