These can make any road trip a little bit easier for you and your passengers! 

Best Road Trip Hacks To the Rescue 

Use shower caddies for on-the-go meals – It truly fits your sandwich, fries and drink perfectly in it! Now if you get a salad this might not be the best option for you! Great to have for the back seat, since some cars don’t have very sturdy cup holders. I had this issue yesterday, my drink fell over in the cup holder and made a mess.

Car Sick Travel Bag – No matter where you go car sickness could happen to anyone! It could even be an upset tummy from the meal you ate, always a good idea to have a DIY car sick travel bag packed just in case.

Back seat car organizer for toys- I have seen this a lot, use a shoe organizer, like this one,  to store all your baby toys! It hooks to the back of the seat and you can put toys, drinks, a few non perishable snacks and such so it is easy to reach as you travel down the road.

MUST HAVE – Madison Ave White Leather Headphones from BiGR Audio bigr audio

My goodness these Madison Ave White Leather Headphones from BiGR Audio are absolutely amazing! I love that they are a stylish design and work really well at allowing you to hear crisp sounds! The headphones have a really nice padding on the inside, so they are soft to the ears. A lot of times I struggle finding headphones that don’t hurt my ears.

In a Hurry? Buy these headphones now, click here.

The headphones did come with a cable that is built-in call answer button and microphone. So if you are watching a movie or whatever and you get a call you can easily answer the phone and talk still with the headphones on! It is a hassle when you don’t have that option and have to rush to unplug the headphones and get them off to answer the phone! It is a really nice option!

Madison Ave White Leather Headphones


The headphones come in a really stunning bamboo wooden box! I loved this idea! This would make a great gift for someone and you would have a stunning box to present it to the person! Inside the box the headphones were in a little cloth bag, so they were well protected! I love that I can use this box to store them in when I am not using them! 

The quality of sound with these headphones on is really nice. It does block out a lot of sound going on around you. I had the tv on and put the headphones on to watch some videos for work, and I couldn’t really hear anything but what was being said on the video! I truly would recommend these if you are looking to buy a good set of headphones! 

BigR Audio


If you are interested in buying a pair of headphones from BigR Audio, I think you will enjoy them. They offer tons of styles to fit any style need! Awesome company, for sure!!!

Disciplining Tips when Traveling with Kids

There are some affiliate links below, but these are all products I highly recommend.

Traveling With Kids and Keeping Kids Entertained and Happy 

Traveling with Kids When you’re traveling with kids this holiday season, it can be more difficult to discipline the way you normally do. The routine is unsettled and this can make it more difficult to discipline. The change in routine and the traveling itself can also stress your children, making them more likely to fight, get irritable, or break the rules. It’s important you have a good plan in place before traveling so you know how to handle these issues if they arise.

Here are three tips for discipline kids while holiday traveling:

Discuss the plan before you go. You will want to sit your children down and talk to them before your travels about the expectations that you have for them. Tell them what behavior you expect and also what the consequences will be for bad behavior. Be very specific and then ensure you are prepared to follow through if the situation arises.

Create discipline that is not location-based. If you usually do time out in the corner, you’re going to need to alter this when you’re on the road. If your children are small, you can bring a folding or travel chair as the “naughty seat” or “time out chair”. You could also implement the same principle but with stairs or a bench.

Prevent boredom as much as possible. Plan ahead so your children have activities and things to keep them busy while you’re traveling and while you have downtime while visiting. When kids get bored, they are more likely to break rules or act out. So keeping them boredom-free is going to cut down on a lot of this.

With these tips in mind, you can have fun on your holiday travels without worrying about what to do if the kids act up.

It will project the time and a dinosaur on to the ceiling! You are able to select a timer if you want for how long it projects to the ceiling, 10 0r 30 minutes! It does offer 4 Dinosaur Images: Diabloceratops, Stegosaurus, Diplodocus and Pterodactyl, Ampelosaurus! I tried taking a picture of it, but I couldn’t get my camera not to use the flash.

Dinosaur Projection Alarm Clock- What Every Kid Wants! 


The clock display itself is really nice, it took me just seconds to get the time set. It comes with a manual that is easy to read and the instructions are very clear! As for the alarm we won’t use it for awhile till Clay gets bigger, but I tried it out to see how it sounded. It was nice and loud and will do the job of waking up your kiddo’s!

Looking for a Moist Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins Recipe

Best Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

Calling all you pumpkin lovers, I have a delicious recipe for you today! It is moist pumpkin chocolate chip muffins, they truly are heavenly! I am all about nice and moist muffins and this recipe doesn’t disappoint! The key here is watching your baking time, if you over-bake them they will not be moist! If you follow the recipe and keep a close eye on the time, you should have perfectly moist pumpkin chocolate chip muffins in no time!

These Pumpkin Muffins Freeze Beautifully

I am a huge fan of pumpkin, and it turns out Clay is as well. He will eat a whole muffin by himself, he just loves them! These work great to freeze, and then take them out when you want one or two and just let thaw. You can toss them in the microwave as well for a few seconds to warm up, I prefer to let them thaw by themselves and eat when still a little cold!

I was also going to say if you haven’t tried using silicone muffin pans, they are really nice! These are BPA Free, dishwasher safe, and heat resistant up to 450 degrees! These make the cleanup so simple, no mess, or stuck on gunk, it just wipes right off!  As well as being great for baking cakes, these pans can also be used for your other culinary creations such as for cooking tartlets, mini cheescakes, small chicken pot pies, quiches and lasagnes and even as molds for making soap!  They are truly a great piece to have in your kitchen stock!

Moist Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins

So, lets get to the recipe, this is very easy to mix up, and I always use my KitchenAid mixer, it just makes the prep easier for me, but if you don’t have one, a spatula or hand mixer works just as good!


Moist Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins


  • 1 Can of Pumpkin (2 cups of puree)
  • 1 Cup Canola Oil
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Large Eggs
  • 3 Cups all purpose flour (sifted)
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 Cup Mini Chocolate Chips (I used semi sweet but you can use what you want)


  1. First off you want to preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Then you want to mix your eggs, pumpkin, oil, sugar and vanilla together.
  3. In a separate bowl sift your flour, and then add your baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in to the mixture.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture to the wet. Once it is close to fully mixed, add in your vanilla extract.
  5. When it is all mixed up, add in 3/4 of your chocolate chips, and hand stir them in.
  6. Pour into your muffin tins and top the muffins with remaining chocolate chips.
  7. Bake for around 15-20 minutes. Depending on your oven will depend on cooking time. Stick a toothpick in them and if it comes out clean they are done.


These do freeze nicely, just place in a freezer pack and get as much air out of it as you can. Then just take them out as you want to eat them.


See, a pretty basic and simple pumpkin muffin recipe that is quick to whip up! You can use cupcake liners or go without, I prefer to use them but it is all about your preference!
