Load Up Your Cart with Target Cartwheel App {Sweepstakes}


I have made it absolutely no secret how much I love Target. LOVE. LOVE. L.O.V.E.

I love their clothes. I love their little men clothes. I love their shoes, their bedding, their decor, their popcorn (you know, fresh popped in a red cheery popcorn bag), their toy selection, their jewelry...

Okay this list could go on and on. Yes, I love Target.

Now I have another point of infatuation with my beloved Target. I am infatuated with their Cartwheel App.

 

 

 



Have you heard of it? Have you downloaded it? Do you use it?

Well, you should my friends. This app will rock your world. I mean, I know you are already shopping at Target, so you might as well save some dollars as you do and use the Cartwheel App.

Let me give you the down low on Target's Cartwheel App, you know, since I am a Cartwheel wizard now.

Target's Cartwheel App can can be used on your desktop, tablet, mobile web or iPhone and Droid apps. You can sign into Cartwheel with either your Facebook login or your Target.com login. You can generate your own list of offers by perusing the over 700 offers/coupons available in Cartwheel and simply adding the offers you are most likely to use. You can make your lists sitting at home on your computer or you can peruse them in the car sitting in the Target parking lot.

Searching is made even easier with the Cartwheel collections. Cartwheel collections are curated lists of offers. The collections make it easy to search for offers on the go. The collections could be offers organized by holiday and seasonal, grocery, women's apparel, baby items, and many more. My favorite was the Weekly Ad Double Dip.


This collection organizes the Cartwheel offers that coordinated with items in the store that were part of Target's Weekly Deals. Genius I tell you! I simply looked through the list and added the offers I wanted to My Cartwheel.

I kind of geeked out over the fact that I could stack offers. You can use the Cartwheel offers with any other Target discounts or coupons, manufacturers' coupons and your REDcard discount. That is a whole lot of saving right there.

The collections are not a comprehensive list of all the offers. There are TONS of offers available and at any given time. Remember, like over 700 offers. CRAZY.

One of the easy ways you can check for offers is to use your phone to scan the barcode of the item you are about to purchase and the Cartwheel App will tell you if there is an offer available for that item. Then it will add it to your generated list of offers.

You simply have to go to the main menu. Then you double tap on the little bar code.


Then a barcoade scanner will appear. You scan the barcode for the item in question. Then either an offer will pop up or you will get a message saying there is no offer available for that time right now.

I looked pretty legit checking for offers in the cleaning aisle.

 

 

So legit in fact that this cute momma of littles came up and asked me what I was doing. She knew about the Cartwheel App but didn't know about this scan feature. I spread the Cartwheel App love and now she knows!
 
Once I had my scanned offers and the offers I had previously added to My Cartwheel, it was time to go around the store to load up my cart.
 
I loaded up my cart with some things I didn't so much need, but wanted nonetheless.
 
 
I was also able to get somethings I needed, like new bedding. See the double stacking of offers on top of sale prices?
 


In fact, I was able to use my Threshold offer for both a new bedskirt AND new pillow cases. You are allowed to have multiple uses of offers until the offer expires. The only stipulations are that you limit 4 items per offer (I used 2... man, I should have gotten 2 more Threshold bath or bedding items), per transactions and you can use your Cartwheel offers up to 6 transactions in a day. So if you used an offer on 1 item to purchase the limit of 4 and did that transaction 6 times in 1 day, then you could have 24 of that particular item.

Yeah, I'm a math genius. Eh, not so much, so if I can do it, you can do it.

You probably don't want 24 sets of sheets, or even 4, but if you were using the Cartwheel App on bottle of Diet Coke, then this would keep your habit supplied for awhile.

Once I was ready to check out, all of my offers are all compiled into one barcode. So when I was done checking out, the lovely Target employee scanned that single scan barcode and all of my discounts came right off.

AWESOME.

In this trip I purchased laundry detergent, liquid dish soap, a Threshold bed skirt, a set of Threshold king sized pillow cases, two packages of M&M's, and a bra (yeah I just okay with telling you I bought a bra). All of these things were already on sale. Then thanks to the Cartwheel App my additional savings were $15.00. They would have been even more had I had a REDcard. I am working on it people, I don't know what my excuse is. Still, 15 bones isn't bad.

Thanks for letting me blather on about this amazing app. If you haven't downloaded Target's Cartwheel App yet, oh you really should. If you have downloaded it, but are unsure how it worked, now I hope you know. If you are a Cartwheel App wizard, thanks for letting me join your club. My certificate is in the mail, right?

I know you are all excited to use the Cartwheel App now, but you are about to get even more excited...

Frozen Hot Cocoa


I know it is like Arctic Tundra 2014 in most parts of the US, well that includes us over here. Even with all the snow and chilliness, I still really craved a Frozen Hot Cocoa.

I figured I could just put on more layers, light a fire, and turn up the heat. Then it wouldn't matter if it were below zero outside. I would still be toasty enough to treat myself to a frozen hot cocoa.

And what a treat it was.

Guys, so good. I mean like SOOO good. Like Serendipity's good. Okay, so I actually have never had a Frozen Hot Cocoa from Serendipity's. Even though I have been to NYC, I was only there for 4 hours and there wasn't time to fit that in. I probably should go back there someday and have one.

Until then...

...well I can't imagine it tastes any yummier than this Frozen Hot Cocoa I made in my very own kitchen, so I am good.

SOOOO good.


I was skeptical how much a frozen Hot Cocoa could taste like a Hot Cocoa. Guys, IT DOES.

This frozen concoction tastes just like hot cocoa. Richer, and thicker, milkshake-like hot cocoa.

We very happily all slurped and sucked every drop of this Frozen Hot Cocoa down.

So even though it is all frozen outside, at least in most places, it is worth turning the inside of your house into a tropical get away to justify making yourself this yummy Frozen Hot Cocoa.



Frozen Hot Cocoa

4-5 cups chocolate ice cream
2 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ground cinnamon

whipped cream
chocolate sauce

Combine all of the ingredients in a blender. Blend until all the ingredients are completely incorporated. Top with whipped cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup.

Drink up. Enjoy.

Thanks for reading lovelies!

Chalkboard Mason Jar Glasses



So I love mason jars. Oh wait, you already knew that. I talk about my mason jar obsession a lot. I also use mason jars for tons of projects. Patriotic Centerpieces, Homemade Wassail, Easter Vases, Mini Pies, and SU'Pper Jar just to name a few.

One of my favorite things to do with mason jars is to use them as drinking glasses.

When I was perusing Michaels the other day, I found these awesome chalkboard labels. I saw them and the first thing I thought was, "I can put that on a mason jar".

I gathered some mason jars, the labels, a piece of chalk, and some pretty straws.


The labels easily adhere and are even re-positionable for a bit. Once they are on there good and you let them set for a bit, they stay on really well.


I wrote some simple Valentine's words on the labels with a sharpened piece of chalk. Yes you can do that ... sharpen a piece of chalk with a pencil sharpen, that is.

Pour some Valentine's punch...aka red juice or soda, and the cup is instantly Love Day festive.


I love Love Day chalkboard mason jar glasses. Luhve. You will probably see them again sometime.

Sign Language I Love You T-Shirt


Okay, time for another installment of Valentine's Day Shirts of 2014. I have already shared the Hashtag Valentine's Shirt and the Be Mine Minecraft Valentine's Shirt.

Today I am sharing this Sign Language I Love You shirt.

I really kind of love it. Okay so I totally love it.


This shirt reminds me of my mom. All growing up she would shoot us the sign for I Love You from across the room. All my siblings and I were accustomed to having mom send us a silent I love you. She still does it to this day. Now we are passing the token of love to another generation.

When I decided I wanted to use this idea for a shirt, it was pretty easy deciding who should get the sign language shirt. This guy right here.


In preschool, he spends a bit of time learning sign language for certain words. He is always really excited to come home and show us what he has learned.

He thought his shirt was pretty cool.

I chose to do a silhouette of the sign for I Love You. Then for design purposes...i.e. I thought it needed a little something more...I added the bracketed interpretation of the sign.

For the majority of the shirts I make I used Hanes shirts bought at The Mart. I buy all of my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I heart that site and I have nothing but good works to say about their product and their customer service.

I created the design with text and clip art. Cut it out, easy peasy on my Silhouette SD (someday I will get the upgrade and go Cameo).

I put it on Little. Handsome and adorable glasses-wearing Little.


Now he is all set for Valentine's Day and ready to melt a few hearts.


Including mine.

Slow Cooker Kahlua Pork (Slow Cooker Saturday)


It has been three and a half years since The Hubs and I went to Hawaii. We both dream of that tropical trip daily. That time we spent in Hawaii really was magical. We had never been to Hawaii before. When people told us it was paradise and we would love it, they were not exaggerating.

We felt the kiss of paradise the minute we set foot out of the airport. The fact that we were 5 hours off our internal clock didn't matter. We felt instantly rejuvenated. Paradise I tell you. Glorious paradise. Pretty much every minute of the trip from that point until we got back on the plane to head home was like that.

In addition to the magical sand and surf, the food was insane. AHHH. Insane, people! Of course the highlight of many a meal was Kahlua Pork. Our very favorite meal was a Kahlua Pork Quesadilla with Guava BBQ Sauce (be looking for that recipe very soon). Seriously, it was sauce all over your face, fingers, and bathing suit good. I will elaborate more on our divine quesadilla experience when I share the recipe with you.

Today, we are talking about the Kahlua Pork. In order for us to copy cat the quesadilla we loved so much, we had to start with a killer Kahlua Pork recipe.

Well, wam bam thank ya ma'am. We have it.

How do you make a killer Kahlua Pork. Well you have to cook it slow, aka for a long, long time. Now I don't have a pit, or a spit or anything like that. Ya know what I do have though, I have a pretty nice little slow cooker.

After the pork and the slow cooker hang out for, oh you know, like 18 hours, you have a Kahlua Pork that will blow your mind and your taste buds.

We have made this Kahlua Pork like lots and lots of times. The Hubs might dream of it fort nightly. We typically pair it with Coconut Rice and sometimes some Coleslaw.

The ingredients themselves are few and simple. Pork. Salt. Liquid Smoke. That hardest part is having to sit in your house smelling all the yumminess to come but knowing you have quite a bit to wait.

The recipe also makes plenty for left overs or to use in another recipe...oh I don't know like Kahlua Pork Quesidillas with Guava BBQ  Sauce.

Thanks for letting me reminisce about Hawaii for a bit on this Slow Cooker Saturday. Don't have a trip to Hawaii planned anytime soon? Ya, me neither. Put on a bathing suit, roll out a beach towel, play some island music, and dish yourself up a plate of Kahlua Pork. I know it isn't the same, but at least you get to eat something yummy.

Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Kahlua Pork

6-7 lb pork butt roast
3 Tablespoons coarse sea salt
3 Tablespoons hickory liquid smoke

Puncture the pork roast all over with a large fork. Combine the sea salt and liquid smoke in a bowl. Rub the mixture all over the meat. Place the roast in slow cooker. Cook on low for 18-20 hours. Half way through cooking time, turn the pork over. Cover and cook the remaining time.

Remove pork from liquid. Remove excess fat. Shred the pork and set aside. Strain the fat from the liquid and set the liquid aside. Add the pork back into the now empty slow cooker. Add in a small amount of the reserved liquid as needed to moisten the pork.

Serve with Coconut Rice and Coleslaw.

Love is in the Air Valentine {printable}



 Today I have another Valentine idea for you.

This is a great one for a class valentine or a teacher or a girlfriend.

They come together really easy and involve Airheads, which I am really rather fond of.

I made the Love is in the Air printable using PicMonkey. I have made it a PDF so it is easy to download and print off.


Download Printable HERE

The printable includes a valentine and a coordinating paper wrap to go around the Airhead candy.


Just print off the printable. I always recommend using card stock paper and to print at least normal setting, if not the best setting possible.

I used regular sized Airheads, but the smaller sized ones would work too.


Wrap the paper wrapper around the Airhead making sure to cover the "head". That way the word "air" is what shows. Tape the wrapper in place.


Tape or glue the Airhead in place. Love is definitely in the air.



Look for more Valentine ideas to come. I kind of went Valentine crazy this year...well crazier than normal.

Homemade Root Beer


The other day I got the hankerin' for some root beer. So, I just said hankerin'. I felt it was appropriate to use the word hankerin' since the hankerin' was for root beer.

That was like four hankerin's. That is a lot of pretending to be a cowgirl that just happened.

I just couldn't help myself. I blame the root beer.

This homemade root beer is so yummy. You may be questioning the need to make homemade root beer when it is so easy to pick up a 2 liter at the grocery store.

Well, first, how cool is it to say you made your own root beer. It is pretty cool. Now I know, because now I can say I have made my own root beer. I do feel pretty cool.

Second, it is insanely easy and tastes so very yummy.


My Little Men thought it was pretty awesome that we made our own root beer. They happily sucked every drop of it down. The Hubs was pretty sad he was at work when the root beer making occurred. I assured him that it was so easy we could whip him up some when he got home.

I feel a new obsession coming on. Homemade soda.

Give it a try. You just might find the whole process kind of amazing.


Homemade Root Beer

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup boiling water
1 teaspoon root beer extract (I use McCormick's brand)
4 1/2 cups of club soda (about 1 liter), chilled

Chill the club soda. Measure boiling water. Add the sugar into the water. Whisk until the sugar is dissolved. Add in the root beer extract. Mix. Refrigerate to cool it down, and keep it in the refrigerator until you are ready to serve.

Combine the chilled club soda with the root beer mixture. Stir to mix. 

Serve immediately.

I hope you and your family enjoy making Homemade Root Beer as much as we did.

Which we did, quite a lot. Especially this one.

Minecraft Be MINE Valentine T-Shirt


Another installment of Valentine's Day T-shirt  Palooza. Woohoo!

This may or may not be the "cooler" shirt Oldest wanted. You know the one I referred to in his Hashtag Valentine's Day T-shirt.

Even though I am in love with the Hashtag Shirt, I can't blame Oldest too much for being jealous of his brother's shirt.

After all, what video game loving boy doesn't think Minecraft is the coolest game ever?

So to have a Minecraft Valentine's Day shirt is kind of the best thing ever...at least in this house.


To make this shirt, I used the image I made for the Creeper T-shirt party favors for Middle's Minecraft Creeper Birthday Party a couple of months ago.

I changed the text on the first T-shirt to say BE MINE...hahaha get it...be MINE...MINECRAFT...anywho...

I also created an old school looking graphic heart image using PicMonkey to go along with the whole Valentine's Day theme.

02.11.15 UPDATE
***I have now made available the image for this shirt. GO HERE to find the image I made for this shirt.***


I cut the images out of red and black flocked heat transfer vinyl from Expressions Vinyl with my Silhouette. I used a soft lovely...er I mean manly...gray heather tee from Target.


A fun boy-approved Valentine's Day T-shirt for my Minecraft lovin' Little Man.


Not shocking this is the favorite t-shirt in our house right now. It is Minecraft mania around here I tell you.

White Chicken Chili (Slow Cooker Saturday)


I love chicken chili. True story.

I like that it is lighter than regular chili. I like that it has taco or Mexican seasonings. I like myself some lime and cumin. Yes I do.

I used to have an old faithful White Chicken Chili recipe. Well, it wasn't really a recipe, it was a season packet and the instructions per that packet. Still good, just not really a recipe. We loved it, but we haven't had it in years. Years I tell you.

First, because we kind of outgrew it. Is it weird to outgrow a recipe? I hope not. I mean I hope every day that The Hubs has outgrown his boxed mac and cheese made with cream of chicken soup and peas. Thus far, he has not. I still love him. He can have his mac and cheese and peas.

Another reason we haven't had it in years, the seasoning packets are not as easy to find.

So White Chicken Chili left our culinary lives. So sad. So, so sad.

I kind of wanted it to come back.

So I developed this White Chicken Chili recipe using all my favorite ingredients. Did you catch the whole lime and cumin hint earlier?

Oh White Chicken Chili, thanks for showing back up in my life. Oh and by the way, thanks for showing up in a slow cooker. You know how I love my slow cooker. I super like this chili. Super duper like.

This chili is spicy, but not hot. It is full of flavor, but is not overpowering. This is a chicken chili that will warm you up on a Winter day, but is light enough for a Summer afternoon. It pairs up great with Monterrey Jack cheese (my favorite cheese by the way) and a couple slices of avocado.

Since this recipe is made in a slow cooker, there is little prep to do. Especially if you use a rotisserie chicken. Then the slow cooker does the cooking and you can take a nap. Or at least wish you were taking a nap.

Here is another Slow Cooker Saturday with my new favorite White Chicken Chili.


Slow Cooker White Chicken Chili

Printable Recipe

4 cups cooked shredded chicken
1-2 Tablespoon olive oil
1/2 green bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1/2 onion, diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
3 (15 oz) cans of pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 packet dry ranch mix
3 Tablespoons cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
Monterrey Jack cheese, shredded
sour cream
avocado, sliced

In a large skillet, heat up the olive oil. Add in the peppers, onion, and garlic. Stir frequently until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.

Add the cooked veggies, the chicken, broth, beans, ranch mix, and cayenne pepper to a slow cooker. Stir. Cook on low for 6 hours.

Serve with Monterrey Jack cheese, sour cream, and avocado slices.

Hashtag Be Mine Valentine T-shirt


Who doesn't love a good hashtag? Okay there are some people who could take or leave hashtags. Me, well I think they are hilarious! Love them.

I love when they are ridiculous. You know like  #imtherealcookiemonster #nomnomnomnomnomnom #ididitallforthecookie #lololololololololololololololololololo.... Name the skit...

Hashtags are great.

So when I was brainstorming for Valentine's Day shirt ideas, this Hashtag Be Mine Valentine T-shirt just came to me. #lightbulbwentoff #iamagenius

Kidding...about the genius thing that is.

Now here is the thing, I don't really have a hashtag savvy child yet. Oldest is almost ten. He is years away from getting what a hashtag is. #geezgetwiththetimes #kiddingheis9

He, much to his dismay, is also years away from having a phone. I mean seriously, he is so not getting one for awhile. After all his own mother has had a smart phone under a year and I only have one because my lovely sister went on a mission and left her phone behind. I am going to ignore the panicky feeling I have at the thought of giving it up when she gets back...breathe...just breathe. Fingers crossed I will get one of my own.

He was happy to use mine for the photo shoot. He looks pretty legit.


I will openly admit, this shirt is pretty much for me. Don't get me wrong, he will wear it. Oh, and he will like it. BUT I am pretty sure none of his 9 year-old friends will get it.

He will probably show up at school and it will go something like this--

Friends: "Uh what does that say?" "Why is there a number sign?"

Oldest: "It is called a hashtag. My mom thinks they are funny. My mom is weird."

Friends: "A hashtag?" "That is weird."

Cole: "I know."

Friends: "Your mom is weird."

Cole: "Tell me about it. My brother got a cool shirt and I got stuck with this hashtag one."

He likes to mock me. #igetnorespectaroundhere


He thinks it is rather funny that I am weird. At least I don't embarrass him...yet.


Seriously though guys, I love this shirt. #thisteemakesmehappy

This shirt is easy to make. I always get all my tees at The Mart (aka WalMart). I bought some flocked heat transfer vinyl from my favorite store Expressions Vinyl. I used my Silhouette to cut out the words. Since the design was like insanely simply, the shirt start to finish took under 10 minutes.

Short projects are lovely. #leftmetimetodothelaundry

If you don't have a vinyl cutting machine, you could do this shirt using freezer paper and fabric paint. The project would take a little longer due to having to stencil and then cut out the letters. Then the paint would also have to dry.

Whatever way you make it, it is still pretty easy. Whomever you  make it for, your kid or yourself, it will probably be like the best shirt ever. #bestshirtever #makeeveryoneelsejealous


Hashtags not your thing...

First of all, then I profusely apologize for my hashtag antics in this post.

Second of all, I have lots of other Valentine's Day Shirt ideas. Go check them out and see if they are more to your liking! Also, I have a few more shirts coming up soon, brother's cooler shirt previously mentioned is one of them.

Other shirt ideas--

Orange Dream Jello Dessert


When I was first married, I got asked to teach a class at church on salads. The cute girl who asked me to teach gave me a couple of salad recipes as a starting off point. One of the salad recipes she gave me was for this Orange Dream Jello Dessert.

If you are a little perplexed, thinking to yourself, "Hey you just said it was a salad demonstration! Why are you talking about this dessert?"

Let me clarify, she called it a Jello Salad. However, over the years we have chosen to have this lovely little orange ditty for dessert. Hence, why we call it Orange Dream Jello Dessert. This recipe is Orangey, made of Jello, and altogether super dreamy. Not like Ryan Reynolds super dreamy (I care a great deal for the Ryans Squared), but pretty close. This dessert is super creamy, but still Jello. The orange flavor is divine and completely enhanced by the lemon Jello. Seriously love this Jello treat.

Again, hence the name Orange Dream Jello Dessert.

This is a really easy dessert, or side dish if you want, to make. The hardest part is being patient while the Jello sets up. You know what I am talking about. Oh the waiting! Oh the telling the children every 5 minutes they still have to wait. Oh the sacrifice we make for Jello. I know, I know, I am being a tad over dramatic.

So basically if you can get past the waiting, this dessert is simple and dreamy. Two of my favorite things.


Enjoy Peeps!

Orange Dream Jello Dessert

Printable Recipe

1 (6oz) box of lemon cook and serve Jello
1 (6oz) box of orange Jello
7 cups water, divided
1 1/2 cups sugar
whipped topping
1 can mandarin oranges

Combine the lemon Jello, sugar, and 4 cups water in a large saucepan. Being to warm the mixture on medium high heat.

At the same time, begin to warm the remaining 3 cups of water in another sauce pan. Eventually you will need this water to be at a boil.

Stir the lemon Jello constantly until it starts to boil and thicken to meringue consistency. Remove from heat.

When the other water boils, remove from heat and add in the orange Jello. Stir until the Jello dissolves.

Next add in the orange Jello to the lemon Jello mixture. Whisk everything together. Pour the Jello into a 9x13 baking dish. Refrigerate until set. At least 4 hours. I let mine set overnight.

Once ready to serve, cut and dollop a bit of whipped topping over each serving. Garnish with individual slices of mandarin oranges.

Thanks for reading!

Meant to BEE Friends Valentine {printable}


I love myself some fun Valentines and I am pretty excited that it is time to start creating and making Valentine's.

I actually created this Meant to BEE Valentine for my girlfriends. I love Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm. Like...love it, love it.

When I decided I wanted to give a little gift to some of my girlies, some Burt's Bees seemed perfect. Especially once I paired it with the oh-so-familiar "meant to be" phrase.

I used PicMonkey to make this Meant to BEE Valentine. The file is a PDF and is available for your download valentine fun.

 (download HERE)

All you need to make this Meant to BEE Friends Valentine is the printable, some Burt's Bees Lip Balm, ribbon, and hot glue.


After I printed and cut out the Meant to BEE tags, I tied little ribbons around the lip balm tubes.


Then I used a small amount of hot glue to adhere the lip balm tube to the tag.


Done and done! So easy. All I have to do now is give them to my girlfriends.

Happy Valentine's Day planning and prepping. Love myself some Love Day.
