Backpacks, Haircuts & Wraps

If you are looking for a new baby bag, I highly suggest a diaper bag backpack. It has lots of compartments, and is one less thing that I have to carry...kinda, it is strapped to my back. It frees up my hands though so I can deal with other things, like trying to catch 2 two year olds running down the middle of the mall while I try to feed the babies and push the stroller at the same time...you know, normal everyday tasks. My favorite thing is that it doesn't need to be under the stroller, which obviously gives me so much more room to store things. Here are a few of my favorites (one I actually carry):

Head on over there!

I was out shopping yesterday with my mom and all the girls. I decided in the middle of Elder Beerman to take Ella into the salon there and get all her hair cut off in to a cute little bob style. The stylist did an awesome job, and Ella looks darling...not that I'm partial. (I will have to post a pic.)
When we got up to the counter to pay, I was expecting to hear something like "that will be $22", or somewhere in that range. You know how much it was?? 4 Bucks! What? Apparently, the Arden Salons in Elder Beermans charge by the age of the child up to 5. Fantastic, huh!? Reese & Charlotte's are only $2 a piece! I love it. Just had to share this great deal.

Tonight Eric and I are going to rent a movie and I'm going to cook up some yummy food. One of the menu items is Asians Lettuce Wraps. I found the recipe from this site. While searching for different ways to make them, I came across the recipe for the P.F. Changs lettuce wraps! I might try that one too. Anyone ever tried it before? Here is the link to that one. I'm also going to throw some guacamole and hummus in there on the side. I love hummus, I would eat it on just about anything. Hopefully everything turns out good...1st time recipes are always a fun time.

Anyone have some new or classic recipes that are a family favorite? Kid friendly meals? I would love to get some new recipes in our house!

Hi Kate-

I might take Cara and Abby for haircuts tonight! What a great deal.
Thanks for sharing.
Also...about the hummus. I can never decide which kind to buy at trader joes. does sams have several options or is there just one? I actually don't know much about hummus so fill me in on what kind is good there.
Thanks, Jeni

What a great deal on Ella's haircut! I bet she looks adorable. :)
That is funny you mentioned lettuce wraps. I am making those tomorrow night. I got my recipe from the crockpot lady. I am not sure if I told you about her or not. We featured her on our site. She cooked every meal in a crockpot last year. I have made several of her recipes and they are all fantastic! Even better, you through it all in the crockpot in the morning and don't have to cook at night!
I haven't tried the lettuce wraps yet but I am sure they will be good, I hope. Here are a few more of my favorites from her. If the links don't work let me know and I will email them to you.

Ohhhh I am so coveting one of those bags now!! Think they'd ship to Bolivia?! Thanks for sharing though. Might have to go on the list for the next time I'm in the US...
