New Purex Fresh Bluebonnet Laundry Detergent at HEB #PurexFreshBluebonnet #SocialInsiders #Ad #Giveaway

Purex_TexasPride_BluebonnetI was given a $20 HEB gift card to facilitate my review. All thoughts are my own.

When we were given the opportunity to move to Texas we were thrilled. Big open spaces, beautiful grasslands filled with Texas Bluebonnets were what I pictured. In the part of Texas we live in, I haven’t seen too many Bluebonnets, but lucky for me Purex has created a special Fresh Bluebonnet Detergent especial for Texans. At participating HEB’s in Texas you can find the New Purex Fresh Bluebonnet and enjoy the light fresh scent for Texas’s Pride and Joy!

Purex_Bluebonnet_HEB

I usually start my laundry on the weekend then finish up on Monday morning. With the 7 of us laundry is a momentous task but thankfully I have helpers. The kids and I have truly enjoyed this scent and hope you will too!

Purex_Bluebonnet

I have 4 coupons to giveaway to my lucky Texas Readers! So if you live in Texas near an HEB let me know in the comments below and I will pick a winner on Friday, May 6th, 2016.

Schlitterbahn Waterpark and Resort – South Padre Island

sch_sspiw_logo-304x259

I am being gifted tickets to the park to share this information with you all. 

One of the best parts of living in sunny south Texas is the Schlitterbahn Waterpark! It gets hot here-so hot! My children have been asking to go to Schlitterbahn since we crossed the Texas state line. I have been doing my research and trying to find the best ticket prices and I can’t wait to share what I have learned.

It’s The Year of Anniversaries!
World’s Most Award Winning Uphill Water Coaster, The Master Blaster, turns 20: The Schlitterbahn New Braunfels park is home to a guest favorite, the world famous Master Blaster. Built in 1996, this 2.5 minute ride is over 65 feet tall and sends guests on an exhilarating ride down two, 3 story drops. It is easily the most iconic uphill water coaster in the world. Does your family have any fun memories of riding the Master Blaster?

15 year anniversary of the opening of the Schlitterbahn South Padre Island Waterpark: Built in 2001, this park is home to our Transportainment River system that is designed to maximize time in the water and eliminate lines. This river system connects eight attractions that feature rapids, chutes, and gentle currents. We truly believe that when you come to the beach, you should just be able to sit back and enjoy your tube ride while you tan.

10 year anniversary of the opening of the Schlitterbahn Galveston Island Waterpark: Built in 2006, this waterpark is located on historical Galveston Island and has been voted as the World’s Best Indoor Waterpark for 8 straight years. This park features more than 33 attractions and a mile long Transportainment River system. To celebrate its 10 year anniversary, Galveston will be unveiling a new ride, which will be the world’s tallest water coaster – MASSIV!

What’s a Water Coaster? A water coaster is a water ride that has multiple uphill sections, uses a ride vehicle (boat, tube, or raft), and has other ride elements (spirals, fish ladders, water screens, etc.) to deliver a thrilling and fun filled ride.

Waterpark Tips for Frugal Moms Taking kids to a waterpark can be a lot easier – and you can be frugal too. Schlitterbahn saves mom’s budget by offering free parking, free life jackets, and families can bring in an ice chest full of food! Food prices inside the park are reasonable and healthy options abound. We have some fun blog posts about this topic here that you can draw from or link to.

Toddlers and Tweens in Tow: Schlitterbahn is designed to have something for every age – inland surfing on the Boogie Bahn is very doable with a lesson or two, splash zones are designed to be safe for the littlest guests. With free life jackets and kids tubes even cautious moms can feel safe. We have a fun post on this here.

Making Memories Schlitterbahn has been part of hundreds of thousands of great memories for guests – What are your favorite memories at the park?

Waterpark Survival Tips Here’s three tips you can share with your readers – do you have any tips from past experiences to share? 1. Swim shoes or flip flops – Schlitterbahn parks are among the largest in the nation, and that means that invariably there will be some hot spots without shade or outdoor carpet. We always recommend wearing some sort of water worthy shoe! 2. Sunscreen – Water rides remove the best in sunscreen. Apply, ride, repeat. 3. Pack a lunch – Schlitterbahn allows ice chests, but no glass or alcohol. Make sure to pack some favorites but leave room for park specialties like funnel cakes and turkey legs!

Building the perfect pillow fort with Pop Secret #PopSecertForts

Today’s post is sponsored by Pop Secret, but my love for their popcorn is all my own!

Pop Secret #PopSecretFort

Popcorn in our house is synonyms with fun! We have popcorn on movie night every Friday! Of course there is a huge mess to clean up afterwards, but the memories and fun make it all worth it!

Pop Secret #PopSecretForts

That innocent looking little boy to the left well he thinks he is Micheal Jordan! He has to have the bag and no one else can touch it! This also makes him the refill guy, but he isn’t your average refill guy-oh no-in true Micheal Jordan fashion he must toss the popcorn into his sister’s bowls.

Tonight we made movie night even more special, we crafted a pillow fort! We had so much fun making this fort! Now to have the perfect pillow fort you must lay a blanket down first Sadie said because then all you have to do is pick up the blanket and the mess is gone, then pillows which mini Mike loved throwing off the bed, then you need a roof according to Caydence all great pillow forts have a roof in case it rains….Popcorn!

#PopSecretForts

We really enjoyed our Pop Secret Popcorn and pillow fort and hope you spend sometime creating your own with your family. Pop Secret knows that fun, like popcorn, is better when it’s shared. Send Pop Secret your pillow fort stories and pictures on Facebook. You can upload them right to the Pop Secret timeline and tag them #PopSecretForts. They might just share a little something back!”

Be sure to download your $1 off coupon for your #PopSecretForts snack to enjoy with your kids for your very own movie night!
