What's This?

Jason and Allison hit me with a couple of humorous comments this week that had me giving them the "what are you talking about!?" look.

Allison is big enough to sit up front in the car finally. I caught her poking her fingers through the tape deck in my stereo.

In all seriousness, she says "Ummm. How do you fit a disc in there?" I keep forgetting she was born after tapes were becoming obsolete. Made me feel like a dinosaur. Must have been how my mom felt when I asked her what an 8 track was.

Meijer updated their shopping carts.

Jason- "Hey! Look at this! Meijer just put in these belts so you can secure your purse!"

 I am pretty sure those are seat belts so KIDS don't fall out of the cart. You know you haven't parented small children in quite some time when your first safety concern is for your wife's handbag.

This one takes the cake though. We were running through our final checklist on what to pack for our upcoming vacation. I said "We need some cheap ponchos from the dollar store." Jason, who was emptying out one of our travel bags from a previous trip immediately pulled this out and said "Isn't this a poncho!?"

No darling. That is a maxi pad! Hahaha!

Has your family said anything crazy lately?

White Chocolate Pumpkin Dreams #Recipe

Tis' the season of pumpkin flavored everything, so I feel it's my duty to throw another recipe in the mix! Upon hearing "Why don't you ever make us any cookies!?" from my family, I decided to bake up these amazing white chocolate pumpkin cookies that I got from Taste of Home a few years back. And to answer their question- I don't make cookies because I sit and eat them all when I do, just like I did with this batch.

pumpkin cookies


1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
2 cups all purpose flour
3 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 package white chocolate chips (or 12 oz coarsely chopped high quality white chocolate)

Frosting Ingredients: (note, these are sweet and really delicious without the frosting. If you don't like an extra sweet cookie, leave the frosting off)

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
3 tbsp butter
1/4 cup milk
1 and 1/2 to 2 cups confectioners' sugar


In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla and the pumpkin.Combine dry ingredients; gradually add to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in white chips.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes, or until firm.

Cool on wire racks. Top with frosting, if desired, when completely cooled.

(For frosting, mix all ingredients until well combined.)

Master Lock Helps You Prepare For Severe Weather

*Disclosure- I received a sample product to help facilitate this post. All opinions are my own.

Living in the Midwest, I've been through my fair share of nasty storms. My area actually gets hit pretty hard twice a year, and no matter how many storms we've been through, we never get used to seeing the destruction they cause. We learned early on, it's better to be prepared ahead of time than to wait until weather gets severe, or damage is already done, to safe-guard our possessions. September is National Preparedness Month, and Master Lock has some storm preparation tips and product recommendations to help keep you and your belongings safe and secure.

Learn the Language of your national  weather advisory organization so you can prepare appropriately for severe weather.

Prepare in Advance. Keep an updated emergency kit on hand. Replace items, such as food, water, and items for your pets every 6 months. Give a trusted neighbor the code to a resettable combination padlock, like the Master Lock M175XDLF combination padlock, so they can access your property without a key if needed.

Create a Backup Plan by keeping your most important documents stored in a weather and fire proof safe. It is important to be able to retrieve your documents after a storm has passed. Master Lock has many options available, like their Sentry®Safe.

Secure Outdoor Belongings in a covered shed or garage, and make sure the door is secured with a padlock built to survive extreme weather conditions. If you can't get larger items indoors, like patio furniture, secure them with a cable and locking system. Master Lock recommends their Master Lock Python Adjustable Locking Cable.

Go Cordless by keeping a supply of batteries on hand in the event of a power outage, and unplug all electrical appliances as power surges can occur as the result of lightning, causing damage to plugged in items.

Also, the Master Lock Vault is a fantastic tool to utilize to store digital copies of important documents. It is free to use and can be easily accessed 24 hours a day, via smartphone, tablet or computer.

We use many Master Lock products to keep our valuables safe, and actually do have the Master Lock M175XDLF combination padlock currently on our shed.

Master Lock Padlock

It offers great features:

• Set and reset your own combination 
• Best cut resistance
• Better weather resistance, with a shackle seal dial cover
• Anti Shim
• Roller pin locking for maximum pick and pry resistance
• One direction dial feature for low light applications.

If you would like to learn more about how Master Lock can help you prepare for severe weather, be sure to read their entire series of tips, and find the right products for you safety needs by visiting the Master Lock website.


One lucky Theresa's Mixed Nuts reader is going to win a Master Lock M175XDLF combination padlock!

The giveaway is open to residents of the U.S., 18+. NO PO Boxes will be accepted. The giveaway will run through 10/11/2014. Winner will have 48 hours to respond to winning email or a new winner will be selected.
