Our All-New R2D2 Bento Box

It hit me, while making Ben's camp lunches, that I had bought an R2D2 bento box awhile back and hadn't had time to use it.

That had to be solved asap, so I adjusted our lunch plans to fit into the R2D2.  Isn't he the coolest?  He actually holds a whole lot more food than I expected too.

Bentgo Boxes for Camp

We have more camp lunches to share this week!

If you're just joining us, the boy was at marine life science camp last week.  Camp was from 9am to 1:30pm, and the campers needed to bring lunch and a snack.  Since it wasn't a crazy late camp, Ben didn't necessarily need a huge lunch since he also ate again when he came home.

EasyLunchboxes for Camp

Since marine life camp is a week long, the boy will end up needing 5 lunches when all is said and done.  Since there's not too much else going on, I decided to rotate lunch foods and boxes, mostly to entertain myself.

Planetboxes for Camp

The boy is off to sea life camp this week in one of the awesome beaches on Puget Sound.  Since camp runs from 9am to 1:30pm, they do have lunchtime, so I was able to break out the lunches this week!

Make a Fruit-opus (Fruit Octopus)

This was totally not planned.  At all.  I was actually shooting FB Live for a different site and talking about how to make a simple orange flower.  I had an orange peeled in case, but I also peeled one on camera and something amazing happened.  It peeled perfectly, without a mess!  But when I realized *how* it peeled, I set it aside and used a different one in my live video because I had a brilliant idea!

Meet my Fruitopus or this one specifically, my Nonopus!

Summer Entertaining with Snapware {Giveaway}

What is your favorite way to celebrate summer?

We've been enjoying a very mild summer her in Washington, which has involved a lot of grilling.  And where there's grilling, there's outdoor eating, which is giving me the perfect opportunity to use my new awesome Entertain-a-Bowls and Fruit & Veggie-tainer that Snapware sent me to try out.

Shrek Movie Night Party Ideas


We've been enjoying a lot of family movie nights lately, between getting to check out cool sneak previews and receiving new movie releases for home viewing.  But the one thing we haven't done is had a full themed movie night, with snacks and dinner to go with our movie.

Fox sent us the new 15th Anniversary Edition of Shrek, along with the other Shrek movies, and lots of other goodies a few weeks ago and that became the theme of our "Let's Have a Movie Night Party" plan!
