9 Ways PMS is Like Pregnancy

I don’t know if your PMS is like mine but I swear every month right before aunt flow rears her ugly head, I am stricken with this paranoia that I am pregnant, even before I am late. Earlier this week, as I was talking to my pregnant best friend and PMSing at the same time I realized that my symptoms are totally like being pregnant! No wonder why I am paranoid every single month.

Seriously PMS, knock it off. Stop tricking me into thinking I am pregnant.

At least with pregnancy I get a beautiful human being out of it. With you I get to be uncomfortable for 5 days while rockin’ my grandma panties. Sexy, I know. Seriously though, if you were to look up signs of PMS, it starts to sound an awful lot like pregnancy.

Here are 9 ways PMS is like Pregnancy

We Love the Zoku Quick Pop Maker!

 We are so excited over the Zoku Quick Pop Maker, it is marvelous! Mix it, pour it, twist it and pop it. It’s just that good. I cannot even begin to tell you how much fun we have had with the Zoku, but I can show you!

The Zoku Quick Pop maker makes popsicles in 10 minutes! That’s pretty impressive if you ask me, and I have a system down. While preparing dinner I also prepare the juice for our popsicles so by the time my children are done with their meal they can have a treat. The wonderful thing about popsicles, is no matter the flavor, it always feels like dessert!

Family Movie Night Just Got Cooler!

Mars Movie Night Made Cooler

My family loves to spend time together in the evenings. Summertime usually means a family walk around the neighborhood and on weekend evenings we also love to watch a fun movie! Our favorite thing is to place a blanket on the floor and snuggle all together with pillows to watch a movie the kids haven’t seen yet and enjoy a treat of some sort. Since we have a blanet down, we sometimes let the kids enjoy ice cream while we watch our movie, and this last weekend was no different. [Read more…]

Countdown To Summer and #RaiseACone!

We love summer evenings around our house. We like to go for walks around the neighboorhood after dinner, stopping to say hi to the neighbors who are out and then bust open the freezer for a treat to enjoy on the front lawn.

My son is a little obsessed with ice cream cones. He asks for them for snacks, for breakfast, and anytime we are at the store, so he was thrilled when I brought home a box of his favorite ice cream cones, Drumsticks! These tasty ice cream cones are not just his favorite, but I love them too because they aren’t messy! I hate when we have ice cream cones and the ice cream drips out the bottom of the cone, all over the place. Drumstick conveniently has a chocolate plug at the bottom that prevents the extra mess from happening!

Nestlé Drumstick is the Original Sundae Cone. In 1928, the Parker Brothers took the waffle cone to the next level but adding a chocolate coating to ice cream and covering the top with nuts. One of the brothers’ wives said it looked like a fried chicken leg and thus, the “Drumstick” novelty was born!

Right now, Nestlé Drumstick is counting down to the first day of Summer, and they want our help! They are inviting fans to “Raise a Cone to Summer” and submit a photo of them raising a Drumstick cone (real or virtual) for a chance to win a lifetime supply of Drumstick cones! Score!

It’s so easy…Just snap a picture of yourself raising your cone (or a fake cone…you can add one in on their site!) and upload it to their contest site.


Visit raiseacone.drumstick.com between now and June 21stto submit a photo of you getting into the summer spirit by raising a cone!
