4 weeks agoby erika_cullenOur summer lazy days are long gone now that my kids are back in school. Now we are back in a routine and schedule and weekends are the only thing we look forward to for some quality time together. There’s no better way to make it better than with a picnic in the backyard and some @chiquitabrands bananas . So delicious, easy, and best of all healthy. What are your must haves for picnics outside? #ad#chiquitabanana#chiquitapartner#madewithchiquita
4 weeks agoby erika_cullenWe been driving around this @mazdausa for over a week now and get to keep it for the rest of the month. The new MAZDA CX-9 Signature has everything I need safety wise and has made the top of my list for my new mom car. We are slowly taking our time with this process but plan to narrow my list down and hopefully by December SANTA comes through! I been patiently waiting for the right one but in the mean time we been taking advantage of this car and our dates while our kids are in school. This is
3 weeks agoby erika_cullenHAPPY FIRST DAY OF FALL usually by this time I have my pumpkins and fall decor out. But with this Houston weather I have no desire for all that. Buttttt hoping this weekend @gortega18 brings down the boxes from the attic and I can start my pumpkin obsession once again.

3 weeks agoby erika_cullen[A friend shared this recently and it hit home for me. As women we deal with so much and all that society expects from us. I knew I had to share this here. So much truth to all of this] Dear Husbands- Remember your wife from her youth when she was glowing and perfectly shaped for you. She left her home to build your home and raise you a family. RESPECT HER _ She got pregnant and went through an unimaginable pain with joy and hope. Her will and strength helped her through the trimesters with tears and laughter. CHERISH

2 weeks agoby erika_cullenLet’s talk about your morning school routine. #ad I’ve mentioned in stories lately how it’s been a struggle for me.

2 weeks agoby erika_cullenThese BANANA BOATS have been a hit this summer with our kids and we are not stopping this Fall either. [AD] Have you ever tried to make Campfire Banana Boats? All you need is some @chiquitabrands bananas chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, and marshmallows- put it in the oven for about 5-7 min until the chocolate melts and the marshmallows start to look spongy.

6 days agoby erika_cullen[AD] Fall time brings many outdoor opportunities for us and for the kids even more park days up ahead. We will soon say bye to that high 90 degree weather (I take that back because we are currently in the 50’s right now it dropped within hours & we didn’t see that coming) It is not easy having outings with kids but what helps me get through it is packing SNACKS. Yes all the snacks! You can't ever go wrong with packing up the food your kids love to snack on AND even more when you know it's not only
