Note: I was not paid to write this post, but I did receive the product for free.  All opinions are Jayme’s though!

About a month ago, my son got lost for the first time.  He’s 2 years old and quite the adventurer at times.  We were at church after service, talking with another family, when I saw him run off.  I was able to follow him, but he made a turn.  Once I made that same turn, I couldn’t find him.  There were lots of places that he could’ve gone to – up a staircase, into the sanctuary, into a few different Sunday School rooms or even the church library.  I panicked, of course, went back and got my husband and friends and we all started looking.  Some other friends of ours saw Finn and held him and started looking for us.  Once we found each other, I was so relieved!

As I started processing the event, in the car on the way home, I realized that the situation could have been much worse.  As big as our church is, it was still a confined place and it would’ve been hard for him to make it outdoors without us.  And because of how our church does Sunday School, Finn had a sticker on the back of his shirt with his name, our name and our phone numbers.  It would’ve been really easy for someone to find him and they’d be able to reach us.  This would’ve been a totally different situation had we been at the zoo or some where much more public.

That’s when I realized that I ordered the wrong thing from Kidecals.  I had gotten contacted shortly before then to do a Product Review, but I ordered labels for my kitchen.  And as cool as they are (and they are cool), it was that I-lost-my-son-in-public scenario that made me realize how much more valuable to me, some of their other products would have been.

kidecals review

Kidecals make “stickers” that are re-usable, water friendly and completely customizable.  One of their main lines is “stickers” for kids that they can use to label things that they take to school or daycare.  Many of them have a place for a phone number – and that’s what made me thing “I really need to order some that have my phone number on them” – something like this maybe.  That way I can stick them on my boys when we go some place public, then when we come home, put them back on the sheet and I can use them next time.

Of course, those aren’t the ones that I ordered – but the ones that I ordered are pretty cool.  I customized one for kitchen stuff, thinking that they’d be perfect to take to potlucks or relatives house as a way of marking my dishes.  Or for an extra “flair” when dropping off freezer meals for people.  And they are great for that!  I just think the kid labels are extra cool!

Are you a fan of haunted houses, spooky mazes and frightening scare zones? If you love the thrill of Halloween and all the spooks that come out at night, Worlds of Fun Kansas City Halloween Haunt is the place to visit. For one admission price you get access to seven scary haunted houses and horrifying mazes, including CornStalkers and Asylum Island, and three scare zones. I visited this house of horrors Saturday night with my husband and Lisa and Tim for The Walking Tourists and it was terrifying!

worlds of fun halloween haunt

When the sun goes down, fog filters through the park, spooky music starts to play and creatures are at every corner all leading up to the Overlord’s Awakening. Watch the live show as the Overlord summons his 400 monsters for the night to haunt Worlds of Fun. This parade of monsters is frightening because these are the creatures that will be lurking in the corners of the haunted attractions. The costumes and makeup of the monsters is meticulous and very realistic. There is a mix of sexy, scary and downright disgusting. Something to scare everyone!

Make sure to check out Ed Alonzo’s Psycho Circus of Magic and Mayhem included free with admission. I remember Ed Alonzo from his role as Max in the Magician in the original ‘Saved by the Bell’. I was very impressed with his elaborate magic tricks and the raunchy humor. One trick he even transported a live duck to a bucket 25 feet away! I still have no idea how he managed that feat. This is a must see show if you visit Worlds of Fun Halloween Haunt!

Halloween Haunt 2014 will run Friday and Saturday nights through November 1. Check online events and promotions for discount tickets, including Friday night military and college ID discounts.

I will warn you that the lines for the haunted houses and scare zones are very long with an hour wait at most of them. If you really want to see all that Halloween Haunt offers I would advise spending the extra money for a Fright Lane pass that puts you at the front of the line for all the scary attractions. When you compare how many haunted houses and scare zones you get to see in one place versus the cost for just one haunted house admission at other attractions the cost for Worlds of Fun is reasonable. Plus, all the regular Worlds of Fun rides are still running during the Haunt, only they are scarier with the fog and spooky music.

Note: Halloween Haunt and Ed Alonzo’s evening shows are for a mature audience. They are very scary and contain adult content and costumes. If you take your young kids on a Haunt night make sure to leave the park BEFORE the sun goes down. Worlds of Fun does have daytime scare-free Halloween events and a kid-friendly Ed Alonzo magic show.

Have you visited Worlds of Fun Halloween Haunt? Do you enjoy haunted houses?

I am happy to announce that Mayor Jean Stothert has announced October 19-25 as the second annual Omaha Family Dining Week. This is a week dedicated to cooking and eating together as a family at home! Keep the electronics turned off at the dinner table and enjoy some old fashioned food and enlightening conversations.


Top 5 Reasons to Take the Family Dining Pledge & Eat at Home:

1. Save Money – In my experience a solid meal plan that works around your schedule takes much less time and money versus eating out. Live Well Omaha says that on average, eating three meals a week in, versus eating out, saves a family of four $2,000 a year.

2. Great Conversations - Here’s a fun conversation starter: ask your kids to describe the best and worst parts of their day. When I ask this question at dinner, the answers always surprise me. Sometimes, I forget that the little things, like getting a homemade treat in their lunch, are really important to a kid and can become the best part of their day.

3. Teach Kid’s Responsibility – Someday the kids will grow up and move out on their own, which means they are now in charge of their own grocery shopping, cooking and cleaning. Involve them in the kitchen now to teach these valuable life skills young that will benefit them their entire life.

4. Eat Healthier Foods - Cooking your own meals is much healthier than fast food fried alternatives. When you cook at home, you control the ingredients (excellent way to avoid allergens), know how your food was handled and can exercise portion control.

5. Quality Time with Your Family – The most important thing about Taking the Family Dining Pledge is spending quality time with your family. When you work as a team to create a meal plan, prep dinners and clean up you create a cohesive family unit. Sitting down together for meals is a time when you can unwind, unplug and really connect through conversation and good food.

So, let’s get cooking! Here is an easy meal plan based on the Omaha sale items this week and check out more meal planning tips and events from Live Well Omaha.

Ready to take the Live Well Omaha Family Dining Pledge? Simply fill out this quick Family Dining Pledge form and be entered to win a $15 Hy-Vee gift card!

Note: Taking the Pledge does not mean you have to commit to make every meal at home, it justs means you make an effort to make more of those meals at home with your family.

My office is having a tailgate-themed potluck party next week and I’m torn on what to bring.  Salty?  Sweet?  Main dish?  Appetizer?  The “problem” with potlucks is that if everyone makes a big batch of something, you end up with gigantic amounts of food!  I guess that’s a good problem to have.  Once I figure out what to bring though, it’s off to the store, using Nicole’s full list of what’s on sale this week!

Main Dishes

  • Pizza – Aldi’s is just daring you to make a pizza with the yummy stuff they have on sale – mushrooms, tomatoes, tomato sauce.  Don’t mind if I do!
  • Chili & Baked Potatoes – Fareway has both potatoes and chili on sale – a super easy meal is to bake the potatoes, add chili and cheese!  Got a vegetarian?  Skip the chili and do broccoli!
  • Roasted Chicken – I don’t often (okay, like once a year, maybe) roast a whole chicken, but when I do, I love the results.  Depending on your family size, you can have the chicken for 1 meal, pull off any leftover chicken meat and use it again in a soup or maybe chicken salad.  I’ve had great luck with Pioneer Woman’s recipe.
  • Baked Penne – Hy-Vee has their pasta on sale.  You can make this casserole with either Italian sausage or regular ground beef.
  • Chicken, Cheddar & Broccoli Braid – I haven’t made this yet, but it’s on my “MUST MAKE SOON” list because it looks easy to make, but impressive to serve.

One of my favorite things to order at restaurants is potato skins.  Which is strange because they aren’t hard to make, but they do take some time – mostly time waiting for the potatoes to bake.  Want to make some yourself?  Do this!


Quick & Easy Baked (Not Fried!) Potato Skins

Potatoes (like russet)
Cheese (like cheddar)
Bacon (either fried yourself or cheat and use bacon bits)
Green onions (optional)
Sour cream (optional for some people; required for me)

1. Using a fork, poke holes in clean, but dry potatoes.  Do as many as you want.  If you want to get fancy, lightly cover the potatoes with olive oil and sea salt before baking.  But that’s a fancy step.
2. Bake potatoes.  Bake for about an hour at 400 degrees.
3. Take the potatoes out of the oven and cut in half horizontally (so they look like a boat).  They’ll be HOT, so I usually hold them with a towel as I slice them.
4. Scoop out the potato pulp.  Leave some in, but take most of it out.  You can use the “leftover” potato for other purposes – mashed potatoes, potato soup, skinless baked potatoes, whatever you want.
5. Put some cheese in the potato boat.
6. Put some bacon and green onions (if using) in potato boat.
7. Place on a cookie sheet.
8. Bake for another 5-10 minutes until cheese is melted.
9. Take out of the oven.  Put on a plate.  Smother with sour cream and moan over how good it tastes.

Jayme is a wife to 1 and, so far, a mother to two little boys. She coupons, but isn’t super extreme about it. She price matches and loves it! While she likes to cook, she’s in the stage of life where simple is usually better! She never knows how many hands she’ll have free at dinner time! You can find her at No Regrets Living.

I was so excited to enjoy a Ruby Tuesday lunch date with my husband. With three small kids we don’t eat out much and a good restaurant meal is always a nice treat. When we sat down, we were pleasantly greeted with a friendly server and some delicious warm rolls. I ordered their new salad bar and Chicken Bella entree. My husband enjoyed a black & blue bacon pretzel burger and we shared the White Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake. The cheesecake was a slice of heaven and tasted just like a cherry cordial candy!

I was very pleased with Ruby Tuesday’s new Garden Bar with over 30 ingredients, including spring mix, crisp vegetables, premium cheese and amazing croutons. My personal favorite from the Garden Bar was their homemade broccoli salad and apple salad. The prices are very competitive and you can enjoy an endless Garden Bar lunch Monday through Friday for only $7.99. The new Garden Bar allows you to eat healthy on a budget! I even used a coupon from a recent SmartSource insert and saved $5.00 off our bill.
