A Milkshake Lovers Dream!! The NEW Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor!!

I received this product for free from Moms Meet (, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms Meet blogger, I agree to use this product and post my honest opinion on my blog. The opinions posted are my own.

We are HUGE milkshake lovers in our house. Lincoln specifically asks for a "nilla milkshake" on a daily basis. I kid you not! In fact, we're headed to Disney this week and the first question he asked was, "Mom, can I get a milkshake in Disney World?" HA! Priorities!! Our "milkshake maker" (blender) is around 10 years old. We desperately needed a new one, especially considering we use it rather frequently. Our family was thrilled when we were sent the NEW Oster Pro 1200 Plus Food Processor!!

Lincoln likes to help when making his milkshakes, so I really appreciate the Oster Pro's simplicity. It offers Smart Settings™ Technology and 7 speeds including 3 pre-programmed settings (one being milkshake), for the most common blender creations.

The Oster Pro 1200 is incredibly user friendly. I don't think Lincoln learned how to read "milkshake" fast enough. LOL.

So let's talk about what this bad boy can do (besides make amazingly delicious milkshakes). Not only is the Oster Pro 1200 incredibly versatile, it is affordable and the perfect kitchen appliance for busy moms. The Food Processor addition nicely compliments the blender. It chops up ingredients in no time at all! Oster’s known durability, easy operation, recipes and ideas make it easy to create fresh meals so that families can spend less time in the kitchen and more time together.

Lincoln said these "nilla milkshakes" taste WAY better in our new blender! I'm looking forward to whipping up some delicious smoothies -- my favorite!!

Once Upon a Time Evil Queen DIY Costume

I am SO excited to be headed to Type-A Parent East Blog Conference at Walt Disney World this week! While we're there, of course we're making a Disney vacation out of it! Honestly, we weren't entirely sure if we were going to be able to attend, until the other day. Because of that, we've been keeping quiet about it around the boys. I didn't want to disappoint them if we had to cancel! Anyways, when Lincoln came home from school the other day, I had our 30 day countdown calendar set out for him on the table. I told him to cross off a day...and then another day...and then another -- until we had just 8 days to go! He was SO happy to realize we would be visiting the happiest place on earth so soon!

While we are visiting, we have tickets to attend Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party! I have heard what a blast this is, and I'm really looking forward to attending. Of course part of the fun about the party is dressing up in a costume! Jared and I wanted to do some sort of  Disney "couple" costume. We thought of several different possibilities, but ultimately decided on The Evil Queen and Robin Hood from Once Upon a Time

I am a HUGE Once Upon a Time fan, and the Evil Queen is my favorite character. I was so happy that Jared jumped on board with my idea. 

First thing though, we had to find costumes. While Jared found a decent prepackaged Robin Hood costume, I wasn't entirely impressed with the Evil Queen's selection. After much deliberation, I decided to attempt a DIY Evil Queen Costume!!

It was really quite simple. I based the pieces off of the photo of the Evil Queen, pictured above, and went from there.

I am incredibly excited with how this came together, and I'm looking forward to dressing up for the party! Follow me along on instagram for live photos during the event!
