Sunday Social

Sorry, there was no Sunday Social last week due to my son's birthday.  It was a super busy one.
So let's get extra social this weekend!

New to Sunday Social?
Here is how it works:
1. Please follow the Featured blogger.
2. Link up your blog's homepage.
3. Check out some other awesome blogs that linked up.
4. Have fun & get social!


The Featured blog this week is Two In Diapers.

I'm Cassie, and I blog over at Two In Diapers! I am a SAHM mom of three precious littles, ages four and younger! They definitely keep me on my toes, and I wouldn't change a thing! At Two In Diapers, I love to share the everyday and many-times hilarious happenings around our home, as well as lessons I'm learning on my journey as a stay-at-home mom, things I love, and projects I sneak in along the way! If you come visit me, I'm sure you'll be very entertained... although I can't promise that you won't leave with "If You're Happy and You Know it" stuck in your head or goldfish crackers in your pockets!



5 Facts:
1. I'm a total daredevil! My hubby has bought me zipline adventures and hang-gliding trips as Valentine's gifts!
2. The first time I ever met my (now) hubby, I commented to a friend that he had the weirdest last name I'd ever heard of... and now it's mine!
3. I have the thickest, curliest hair EVER, and it takes me 1 1/2 hours to blow dry and straighten it. At a salon, it usually takes them 3. No joke!
4. When I was in 9th grade, I spontaneously entered an essay contest 4 hours before the deadline, wrote it in the cafeteria during lunch... and won 5th place in the state of Texas. 
5. I'm horribly competitive at card games, especially speed ones. My family jokes that they lose skin on their knuckles during our Nertz tournaments. 


Stop by Cassie's blog and say hi!
Please email me at kim@thesasselife.com if you would like to be the Featured blog.
Being the featured blog is a great way to get free exposure.

Super Cooper Birthday Party & Signazon Review

So my son's birthday was this past weekend.  He turned two. *tear*  Can't believe he is already two.
Here are some pictures from his Super Hero birthday party.
Absolutely adore this 2' x 4' feet custom vinyl banner from Signazon.
Amazing quality for a great price.
The greatest thing about it?
It's made out of vinyl so we can use it year after year.  Amazing, right?
Signazon made it super easy to make too.
You can choose from their hundreds of templates or make your own design.
I would definitely recommend this banner.  
P.S.  They have more than just banners too.  Stop by Signazon to what else they offer.  You won't be disappointed ;)

Happy Birthday my little super hero!

I was sent products in order to write this review. All opinons are 100%  mine.

Shabby Apple Giveaway

Have you heard of Shabby Apple? 
That adorable online boutique?

In their own words:
"We started Shabby Apple because we saw a need in women’s fashion that was not being met. A need to make women feel feminine and beautiful for what they wear, not what they bare. We offer flirty, stylish dresses a woman can wear just as comfortably in the office, at a family dinner, or on a date. Shabby Apple is a fashion company for women, by women, and of women.
Because serving women and families is a core value at Shabby Apple, we devote a certain percentage of our net proceeds to charitable causes serving women and children."

Better yet, let me show you Shabby Apple.




Seriously, filled with the most gorgeous dresses.
Don't forget about your accessories.


And swimsuits

Maternity, too

Oh wait, did I mention kids & preteens too?

I'm sure I have your attention now.  Shabby Apple is giving away a $50 gift card.  You will probably spend hours just trying to figure out what to use it on.

But, if you can't wait & have to get something right now!

Huckleberry Apple Tart



We recently moved to Spokane, Washington.  What is more perfect about the Pacific Northwest than huckleberries & apples?

1 Lg. package sugar cookie dough
1 cup sugar
1 Lg. can sliced pineapple (drain & use juice to glaze)
1 T. lemon juice
2 T. cornstarch
1 - 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1 tsp. vanilla
Your choice of fruit (I choose huckleberries, apples & strawberries)

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
Soften cookie dough to room temperature.
Spread and pat to cover pizza pan.
Bake until dough just begins to brown (about 15 minutes).
Cool on wire rack.
Thicken pineapple juice (with enough water to make on cup), lemon juice & 1/2 cup of sugar over moderate heat, stirring constantly for about 3 minutes.
Cool. 
Beat cream cheese, vanilla & 1/2 cup of sugar, spread on cooled crust.
Arrange your fruit on top and brush pineapple glaze mixture coating the fruit.
Chill and enjoy!
