~Fabulous Fall Find Thursday!~

Hey y'all! Happy Thursday! It is just starting to really feel like fall today and I am so excited! I decided to make Thursday's for the rest of October "Fall Finds Thursday" where I will be sharing yummy treats, fun crafts, and adorable finds! Thank you for the wonderful emails encouraging me to keep it up! I do have fun finding goodies to share! Today I wanted to share from Jen's over at My Own Road (now at eat.sleep.MAKE) great idea at some Monster Sandwiches! I am SUPER big into making my kids lunches fun, I know they probably do not realize I spend an hour or so each night on lunches, shaping eggs into cars, or fishes or making pumpkin shaped PBJ sandwiches or cutting fruit and veggies into shapes, but if I can get a smile out of them even a small one, then I am a happy momma! So in my search of a fun "Halloween" theme sandwiches idea I came across this blog and I have to say...HOW CUTE ARE THESE SANDWICHES? Almost too cute to eat! They look simple to make also! 
I love how the cheese is cut like teeth! My kids are going to get a kick out of these! Please check out her blog and the directions for making these fun monster sandwiches! You can find that link here: 

I have also been big on trying smoothies the past few months. My kids actually have loved trying them and one of the ones they love is this Banana Smoothie. It is super easy to make and taste good!

Banana Smoothie
Here is what you will need and how to do it!

  • 3 ripe bananas
  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp flax oil
  • 2 cups ice

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender with the bananas on the bottom.
  2. Blend until smooth.

Makes 4 servings. 

I love these Bento Jars, I use them to put the kids smoothies in or I put a little soup in it for my son! You can find this and more over at: Laptop Lunches! I mentioned above that I love to shape my kids lunches, and I do that by using my Bento Creativity Tools! Here are some things I keep in my Bento/Lunch kit:

Here is what I pack my kids lunches in!

I always include a joke in  my kids lunches also! Most of the time I just get on my handy Pinterest and pull up funny kids jokes and use those! This month I am keeping with the "Halloween" theme and write jokes about pumpkin's, ghosts, and scarecrows! You can check out my Pinterest page for kids jokes and notes here:
