Mrs. Cavanaugh's Chocolates {BOGO Offer!}

My grandma tells us every year that she doesn't want anything for Christmas unless it's food or money, lol. Seriously though, I'm with her! ha! She lives in a small apartment and just doesn't have a lot of room for unnecessary stuff. When I saw these delicious chocolates, I knew they'd be the perfect gift for both my grandma and my husband's grandma!

Marie Cavanaugh spent hours in her South Dakota farmhouse each Christmas season making pecan rolls and homemade chocolates for holiday gifting.

"It started when my aunt sent her pecan-rolls recipe," Mrs. Cavanaugh recalled. "I gave the recipe my own touch and started making the yummy specialties. Then I began dipping chocolates. Our friends and neighbors loved these treats, encouraging me to start a candy business. Finally, I decided it might be a good idea."

Her husband George and children Carla, Lorraine, Calvin, Colene, and Genise rallied, helping Mrs. Cavanaugh fill demands for her homemade sweets.

In 1972, the family moved to Utah, leaving good friends and their beloved cattle ranch.

"It was a difficult decision, especially for George," Mrs. Cavanaugh said. "He was excited about making our new venture, which we chose to call Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies, a great success. We felt Utah was blessed with good chocolates and that we would enjoy - and could compete with - those who pride themselves on making excellent chocolates."

Millions of pounds of chocolates later, Mrs. Cavanaugh's candies have earned a reputation for unquestionable excellence.... Ask chocolate aficionados. They will direct those seeking the best chocolates to the popular Mrs. Cavanaugh's Candies.

Animalz Headphones {Review}

This is a normal occurrence in our house...

Seeing my two girls singing praise & worship songs just makes my day. However, everyone seems to flock to the living room at the same time to try to listen to music, watch tv, play video games, etc... and everyone usually ends up pretty aggravated that their tv show is being interrupted by music coming from one of the computers, tablets, or phones!



Family road trips, casual listening and airplane rides will never be the same. Say goodbye to long, boring hours and squabbles in the backseat and say hello to Animalz headphones for kids! Whether at home or on-the-go, Animalz by ReTrak retractable headphones are designed for little ears and feature volume-limiting technology in six lovable soft fabric animal designs: Biker Bearz, DJ Panda, Jam Bunneez, Scuba Shark, Skate Monkeez and Surf Dawgz*. Kids can now enjoy listening to their own music, playing games or watching movies all with their favorite Animalz!

Volume-Limiting Technology

According to the Journal of Pediatrics, more than 10 percent of children ages 9 to 19 have noise-induced hearing loss. Prolonged exposure to sound louder than 85 decibels can damage a child’s ears, causing permanent hearing impairment. With Animalz’s volume-limiting technology parents don’t have to worry about overexposure for developing, sensitive ears. Animalz volume limiter sets 85 decibels as the maximum volume for optimal ear protection.

Tangle-Free Storage

Animalz headphones offer crystal-clear sound quality and are equipped with a built-in 3.2-foot retractable cable. Designed with children in mind, kids can simply retract the cord once they’re done listening. Parents no longer have to waste time unraveling knotted wires. The convenient, tangle-free headphone storage makes clean up easy.

The cord comes with a gold-plated 3.5 mm connector that is universally compatible and works with most portable devices. Manufactured with high-quality components, Animalz have a soft fuzzy headband and ear pads with a lightweight design that are comfortable to wear. Built for years of fun, Animalz are backed by a lifetime warranty!

Where to Buy

Animalz are available at more than 15 U.S. retailers including®, Best Buy® and Toys“R”Us®. For a full list visit:

*Panda and shark designs are available at Best Buy starting Nov. 3, 2014, and are exclusive to the retailer until March 2015.

Marissa was super excited to get these new headphones! She loved how soft they were and of course, that they were pink! I love the fact that they have the retractable cord! I wish ALL products that have cords had retractable ones! I house would be so much less cluttered! She put her headphones on and plugged them into the laptop immediately to watch YouTube videos, lol.

Hunter loved the Animalz headphones too! He loves ALL animals, but was super excited to get DJ Panda! He plugged his headphones into his DS right away so he could hear the sounds on his games without bothering anyone else.

Our family definitely recommends these headphones for any kids on your Christmas shopping list! They're guaranteed to LOVE them!!

LG OLED is a great family gift from Best Buy

Disclaimer: I have been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Surprisingly enough, I'm almost done with my Christmas shopping! In years past, I don't think I've ever even started shopping this early, much less be almost done!

However, my husband is entirely difficult to shop for! You'd think he'd be the easiest person on my lift to shop for - but he's totally the hardest one! He enjoys things like hunting, fishing, playing golf, and watching hunting/fishing/golf shows in his spare time. He's a pretty simple man, I guess.

So what do I get him for Christmas? He has all the hunting equipment he needs - guns, bows, etc. He has all the fishing equipment he needs - rods, reels, etc. And he just got a new set of golf clubs a year or so ago. I guess I could attempt to add to his collection of guns and fishing poles, but let's be real here, I'd have no idea what to get that he'd like. I don't know anything about guns and fishing poles except how to shoot a gun and how to cast a line!

So as I was brainstorming for other ideas of possible gifts for my hubby, I thought about a new TV. I went online to see what stores were listing their Black Friday sales early and if a new TV was within our budget.

O. M. G.

Have you seen these awesome new LG OLED TV's at Best Buy?! My husband would be in Heaven!! Marissa would also enjoy watching music videos on it and Hunter would LOVE to play MineCraft on this awesome screen!

This is Halloween! ... Or, Was Halloween...

Our town got a new Halloween store, Spirit Halloween, so the kids and I went to check it out a few weeks ago. We had so much fun playing with the different masks, costumes, and scary props!

Hunter and Marissa had a vocabulary parade at their school on Halloween, where they each got to dress up as a word. Marissa was "sparkle" and Hunter was "monstrous." Hunter was so excited to get to wear his werewolf costume to school, especially since they're not allowed to wear costumes, lol.

Aleah's school had their Fall Fun Festival on Halloween morning. I took the day off so I could go and hang out with her. She had so much fun! They had a pumpkin patch where they each got to pick a pumpkin to keep, face painting, bean bag toss, etc!

I let Aleah leave school early after their festival was over and took her home with me. We went to lunch at McAlister's. While we were waiting on our food, I checked Timehop and realized she was wearing the same shirt she had wore the year before on Halloween and that her sister had worn two years before on Halloween, lol!

As soon as the kids got home from school, we got dressed and headed out to start our evening of fun Halloween activities! Aleah was Sofia the First, Marissa was Clawdeen Wolf from Monster High, and Hunter was my very own Jax Teller from Sons of Anarchy! :)

Even Bob dressed up! ha!

Our house all ready for trick-or-treaters with our decorations and jack-o-lanterns :)

Did you have a good Halloween?
