{Shopping} Dollar Tree Haul

Oh how I love a big, clean Dollar Tree Store!
On this particular day, I came home with a very nice haul.  
 Look at this cart! I usually don't fill a cart when I'm there but they had so many good things.
They had all of their organizing and school supplies in stock and I found a few other goodies too.  I still only spent about $20!  I'm using the organizing bins in an upcoming project that I'm excited to show you.

{Travel} Bushkill Falls, Pennsylvania

It's another summer of staycations and day trips but we've been branching out a little more.
We recently visited Bushkill Falls, dubbed "The Niagra of Pennsylvania". It's about two hours outside of Philly in the Pocono Mountains.
This enormous chipmunk greets you as you go through the entrance.
Bushkill Falls encompasses over 300 acres, with eight waterfalls and over two miles of hiking trails, bridges and walkways.
A lot of the walkways are boardwalk style but there are some rocky areas too.
We wanted to see all eight waterfalls so we took the Bridal Veil Fall Trail.
Here she is!  She does look like a bridal veil.
It was nice to go when it wasn't too busy and early in the day before it got too hot.
I'm glad I read up on the trails before we left because this sign might have scared me from taking the harder trail. It wasn't that bad...a bit challenging but we could handle it.
There were plenty of places to stop and take a break... 
...and marvel at nature's splendor.
It takes about two hours to hike the longest trail but you can stay in the park as long as you like. You can also get your hand stamped reentry if you want to leave for a bit to have a picnic or use the restrooms (no food or restrooms on the trails). There were some cute shops, a snack bar and a Native American exhibit outside the trail area.
I thought this water fountain had a clever name, get it?
Pretty sound advice!
On the way home we passed a sign for the "World's Largest Christmas Factory" so we just had to stop!!  It was a fun little detour!

August's Daily Goodie Box #review #ad

 It's here!! I love getting my Daily Goodie Box in the mailbox each month. Find out how you can get one here
 They package everything up so nicely, so let's dive in!
 Looks like a great bunch of samples!
 Food and Beverages
 Hannah Max - Cookie Chips
These are everything you love in a cookie but in tiny, bite size chips!

PBCrave - Flavored Peanut Butter
My love for peanut butter runs deep.  PB Crave offers gourmet peanut butters in some deliciously different flavors. Chocolate chip cookie dough peanut butter? YES indeed!

Detox Water - Peachberry
This detox water is so yummy. I'm excited about the new flavor!

Javazen - Organic Coffee Brew Bags
Organic coffee brew bags make having a perfect cup of coffee so easy! 
The mixture balances out the caffeine with matcha and cacao. You can have a press pot quality cup of coffee by steeping one of their earth friendly bags for 4 minutes.
Health/Beauty & Home

Clean Happens - All Purpose Cleaner 
They call this stuff 'naturally filth fighting'. I love that the products are all natural and scented with essential oils and botanical extracts. Another cool fact about the company, the products are made in the USA with solar energy!

Essential Oxygen - Organic Brushing Rinse
Organic brushing rinse is part toothpaste part mouthwash.  The directions say to spit out your morning 'bad oral bacteria' when you wake up and swish the brushing rinse for 30-60 seconds. They say it's great for whiter teeth, fresher breath and healthy gums. Interesting!

Balla for Men - Original Formula Body Spray

This is a light clean smelling spray, not overpowering like some of those body sprays (you know the one!).  It's described as a musky, woodsy spicy scent. Nice!

Yarok - Feed Your Moisture Shampoo

This product is 100% vegan and free of alcohol, paraben, sulfates, chemicals and gluten.  Yarok also gives back 3% of their profits to protect the Amazon rainforest.

So that's it for this months' fun Daily Goodie Box.  You can sign up for your own Daily Goodie Box here. Shipping is free and no credit card is required ever!

{Recipe} Hummus & Veggie Pinwheels

I've been on a "roll" lately with my recipes! This probably doesn't even count as a recipe, it's so easy.
 You'll need wraps and/or tortillas, hummus and your favorite veggies.
 Spread the hummus over the wrap and add veggies. I used spinach, red cabbage, roasted red peppers, carrots and red onion.
 Roll the tortilla up into a log shape with the seam side down.
 Slice into pieces.
 Spear with toothpicks to hold them together.
Arrange on a plate (or not) and you're done. Serve immediately or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.  They are best served within a few hours of making.Pin It
