My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway 2016

My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway 2016

My favorite things at the holidays are shopping for the perfect gift for everyone on my list. I like to think I work really hard at getting everyone I know and love just what they want so I can see a smile on their face when they open up their gifts. Shopping at the holidays can be rough though and you have to go into the stores prepped and ready. To make the perfect shopping day I need several of my favorite things to be able to get my shopping done and fight the crowds.

My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway 2016

The perfect shopping trip needs a great tote bag to toss smaller purchases into, store your wallet, phone and shopping lists. This Vera Bradley Tote in the Cherry Blossoms print (retail value $48) is an ideal shopping tote. To make holiday shopping easier I like to use a smaller wallet that can hold all of my cards I’ll be using and that has an ID window for you ID. It makes it so much easier to show cashiers when they are tougher on card purchases. This adorable little Vera Bradley Zip ID Case in the Parisian Pom Poms print (retail value $12) is perfect for that. After I’ve made my Christmas shopping lists and checked them twice I can keep them organized along with all of my receipts just in case I was not so great at picking out the perfect present with binder clips. For my prize pack I have some fun ones from Vera Bradley in Midnight Paisley (retail value $8).

My Favorite Things Holiday Giveaway 2016

To start out any holiday shopping trip or just a day in my life in general I require caffeine. To give you that energy boost to power through long lines and crowded stores my prize pack includes a $10 Starbucks gift card. Once your out at the stores it’s nice to know that you have plenty of money to spend so I’m including $10 Walmart, $10 Target and $10 Kohl’s gift cards to help make your holiday shopping less hard on your bank account. Of course after a long day of shopping and toting bags around you need to refuel. One of my favorite fast food places is Chick-fil-A because I can grab grilled chicken nuggets and a salad of some sort to keep it healthy but quick and yummy. You’ll be able to do the same with a $10 Chick-fil-A gift card. It’s a good thing you’ll have a new wallet and tote to carry around all of these gift cards if you are my lucky winner of My Favorite Things Giveaway 2016!

Hamilton Beach Rice Cooker Mexican Rice Recipe Plus a Giveaway

by Jennifer Wieland
Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker in Stainless Steel - Slow Cooker Mexican Rice Recipe
Thank you to Hamilton Beach for sponsoring today’s post! All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own.


Just a handful of weeks ago I couldn’t wait for the kids to be back in school! I had been counting down the days until I had some peace and quiet around the house to get work done and to just have some quiet me time. Now though activities are kicking in as well as homework for the kids and the tons of travel I have done in the last five weeks with the family (Hello, three out of five weeks of living in close quarters.) and I just have been struggling to get back into the school year routine. That means I have been on the hunt to find things to make dinner time easier on me because scrambling for a good breakfast, ordering in or picking up carry out is just cutting way to into the budget and causing too much stress. As a Hamilton Beach ambassador I was so happy to receive the Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker in stainless steel. It’s been a lifesaver for breakfast and dinner! One of the favorite things I’ve been making is my Rice Cooker Mexican Rice recipe.

Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker in Stainless Steel

Prior to this I have never owned a rice cooker but I had been looking to buy one. I had no idea what I had been missing out on!  The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker is so unbelievably versatile a good rice cooker could be. The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker allows me to have hot cereals ready for breakfast when the family gets up. I’m also able to make a variety of rice, pasta and grains. What truly sets this rice cooker apart though is that it comes with a steamer basket. So while your cooking your rice, pasta or grains you can also steam vegetables, seafood and chicken. To take this rice and hot cereal cooker to the next level Hamilton Beach made sure to include both a delay start and warmer feature.

The Hamilton Beach Rice & Hot Cereal Cooker frees up time for you. The rice cooker does all of the work for you to make meals a hit all while freeing you up to be able to pack lunches in the morning, help with homework after school or run kids around to activities and sports.

My family loves Mexican food! We have it 1-2 times a week usually and one of my favorite sides to go with it is Mexican rice.

It’s flavorful and packed with colorful veggies that add some extra nutrition for the family. It also makes a phenomenal base for rice bowls.

St. Louis – My Five Favorite Things to Do

by Jennifer Wieland
St. Louis - My Five Favorite Things to Do #FunnestFamily


I bet for a lot of people out there St. Louis has never popped into your head as a must visit place when planning your family vacations. Not there is anything wrong with St. Louis but more often than not I think people plan trips to Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Orlando when thinking about family fun. Oh sure, sometimes other locations in the United States might pop into your head but is St. Louis one of them? If it’s not it should be because St. Louis is a vacation spot that guarantees family fun with great things to do.

Living in the Chicagoland area most of my life I have been to St. Louis. It’s a pretty standard road trip that most people here do at least once. My first time was as a kid with my parents. It was so much fun and we made so many fabulous memories on that trip that I actually remember more about that trip than I do about some pricey well-known trips that we went on. I’m such a fan of St. Louis that I’m going to let you in on a little secret…. Are you ready? It’s where my husband and I went for our honeymoon. Not surprisingly to me it’s on my list of places to take the kids this summer as well.

I know what your thinking? What could possibly make St. Louis so great? St. Louis is a city that is rich in history, food and culture so it has options that will appeal to everyone in your family. 

St. Louis - My Five Favorite Things to Do #FunnestFamily

My Five Favorite Things to Do in St. Louis

Anheuser-Busch Brewery Tours & Gifts

I bet you’re thinking how is this a family thing and I bet you did this on your honeymoon. Actually we had planned on making this a stop on our honeymoon but honestly, it was our honeymoon and there just wasn’t time. Nope, this is one of my all-time favorite vacation memories from my childhood! My parents wanted to go which was odd to us as kids because neither of my parents were drinkers. We did the tour and my parents found it fascinating, my siblings and I were mildly interested… and then we saw the horses! Clydesdale horses are an awesome sight to behold and will have children and adults oohing and aahing alike. I picked out a stuffed Clydesdale horse in the gift shop and that toy spent years with me!

Meramec Caverns

The Meramec Caverns are so fascinating! The tours are interesting and educational. You’re budding geologists or kids in general will find it interesting and bring all that science stuff from school to life. With ties to the Civil War and a famous outlaw the tour is definitely a must while visiting St. Louis. The temperature is cool inside though since they are caverns so bring a jacket. 

The Cathedral Basilica

Catholic or not anyone can appreciate the beauty of architecture and one of the largest mosaic collections in the western hemisphere. The beauty, detail and design that make the heart of the Archdiocese of Saint Louis will leave you breathless. This is one of those places that anyone who is a fan of art and design will appreciate and love. 

Endangered Wolf Center

There are zoos all over this country and while they interesting and educational the Endangered Wolf Center in St. Louis focuses on specific species of animals form around the world that are facing extinction. They strive to help preserve and grow the numbers for these animals and to educate the world about them. With the ability to “adopt” a wolf or a pack it’s a great way to teach kids about endangered animals and to let them help save a species.

The Gateway Arch

Driving to St. Louis from Chicago as a kid I remember how excited I was when my siblings and I kept asking are we there yet, are we there yet every so often to have my parents point to the Gateway Arch from across the river and say yes. Seeing the Gateway Arch from there was absolutely amazing but then we went there and I remember standing below and looking up with my mouth hanging open. Then it got even better! We went up into the arch! This is definitely a must and with its 50th anniversary they’ve been working on making it even better!

Enter the #FunnestFamily Contest

Now are you ready for some St. Louis fun with your family? How about a chance to win a St. Louis getaway with your family? Then it’s time for you to enter the #FunnestFamily Contest! Your family could win a weekend of nonstop fun in St. Louis.

How to Have a Fun, Family Pizza Night

by Jennifer Wieland
How to Have a Fun, Family Pizza Night


Family pizza night is staple in our house! We pick out a couple of flavors of pizza, pop some popcorn, grab some candy and drinks and the whole family votes on a movie. It’s a time for us to fully relax, reconnect and enjoy some family time together watching a new or favorite movie. For us, Red Baron Pizza is a go to staple to making these nights a success!

What I love best about family movie night is that the whole group gets involved. People help pick up so everyone can get comfy. The kids ask to help make the pizza and snacks and a lively debate always ensues about just what movie we will be watching for the evening. For us the pizza is the easiest thing to pick! We love Red Baron Pizza with its great flavor and variety of crust and topping options. 

How to Have a Fun, Family Pizza Night

We have a large sectional so the kids load it up with blankets and pillows to make a comfy haven. Family pizza night is the one night a week where I am okay with people eating upstairs and making a bit of a mess. 

How to Have a Fun, Family Pizza Night

Red Baron Pizza is a classic and has been around since I was a kid and so has family pizza night with a movie. This was a way my family connected and spent time together just eating, snuggling and enjoying each other’s company. It’s one of those great childhood memories I have that I have been able to pass down and share with my own kids. Who knows maybe some day I will get invited to their family pizza night as a grandma. 


To make your next family pizza night a success I would like to help you out by offering up a $20 Amazon gift card to one of my lucky readers. Whether you need it to buy a new pizza stone, the perfect pizza plates, a movie to watch with your pizza or anything else family pizza night related.

Sleep Tips to Keep Technology from Ruining Your Sleep

by Jennifer Wieland
Sleep Tips to Keep Technology from Ruining Your Sleep


I don’t know about you but I love sleeping. Being curled up in bed, my head resting on pillows and a comfy pair of pajamas on are like heaven at the end of the day. If only the drifting off to sleep came on cue like I wish it would. Sadly though in my house that happens all to frequently. I want to close my eyes and just nod off but then I remember I forgot to email one of the kid’s teachers or I stayed up late on the computer working on a blog post or editing photos or maybe we had movie night and turned it into a double feature on Friday night. All I know is all of that technology effects your sleep. Being plugged in to so much actually has negative affects on out sleep. Here are some sleep tips to keep technology from ruining your sleep.

Melatonin is a sleep-inducing hormone created by the hypothalamus. That’s right, light goes into your retina and puts a hold on your brain releasing the Melatonin your body needs to drift off to sleepy time. So how do you get your brain to release the Melatonin your body needs for rest?

Sleep Tips to Keep Technology from Ruining Your Sleep

Turn off the TV

TV time seems like a great way to unwind after the kids go to bed . Lounging in bed streaming a few episodes of your favorite show or getting caught on your DVR recordings may seem completely harmless but that light is actually telling your brain to hold off on sleep. 

That Email or Text Can Wait

I know it seems like an email or text has to go out that minute and in some professions it might really need to. If it can wait until morning though, let it. Again that sneaky light from your computer or phone is giving off the no sleep ju-ju to your brain. Skip all that and wait until the morning. Your email or text will be better anyways with a nice refreshed brain putting it together. 

Deprive Your Senses

Sleep masks and earplugs can go a long way in helping you get better sleep at night. Giving your eyes absolute darkness and limiting what your ears can hear can put your mind into a state of rest and relaxation so much easier and help keep household sounds and light from interrupting a restful night. 

Nix Sugar and Caffeine Early

Technology is bad enough but pair it with caffeine and sugar and you could ruin a good night’s sleep but quick. I know it’s hard to make it through the day without a daily dose of caffeine or a mid day sugar boost but be sure to finish them up early in the day and not to indulge to heavily. Limiting the intake of both will help you drift off at night much easier. 


While your body produces its own Melatonin there are times when it may be hard for your body to use it. If you work a rotating shift, have been up with a sick child or couldn’t avoid electronics due to work or another activity you may need a little help in the Melatonin department. That’s where Natrol comes in. 

Sleep Tips to Keep Technology from Ruining Your Sleep

Natrol has two great Melatonin products to help you drift off to sleep!

Natrol Melatonin Fast Dissolve tablets, 5mg dosage, can be taken anytime, anywhere with no water needed. They are 100% vegetarian,100% drug-free and non-habit forming, they support an overall better sleep and can help you regulate healthy sleeping patterns.

Two Ingredient Pot Pies with a Progresso Giveaway

by Jennifer Wieland
Two Ingredient Pot Pies #ProgressoGameDay #ProgressoStew #ProgressoChili


Are you ready for some football? I know that I am . Football is a way of life in my family and we love to spend our weekends talking about and watching football. Our meals revolve around the game and have to be something that you can grab quickly during halftime or easy enough to devour in between plays. Since it was a weeknight today and Monday Night Football is on I decided I needed a quick easy meal that I could prep ahead of time and just pop in the oven at game time. Thankfully, Progresso Stew made the prep a breeze for my new, two ingredient pot pies.  Two Ingredient Pot Pies #ProgressoGameDay #ProgressoStew #ProgressoChili Progresso has some new additions to their already tasty family lineup. They now have a line of stew and chili varieties that come conveniently packaged in pouches to feed more than one person. 

  • Roasted Vegetable Chili with 3 Beans is a meat-free option 
  • Smokehouse Pork and Beef Chili with Beans
  • Southwest Style White Chicken Chili with Beans.
  • White Chicken Stew with Savory Herbs 
  • The Hearty Vegetable Stew with Beef 

Two Ingredient Pot Pies #ProgressoGameDay #ProgressoStew #ProgressoChili For my pot pies I used the chicken stew but you could definitely use the beef stew as well. You could easily make both with this recipe being such a breeze and freeze or refrigerate them before cooking so that you can prep them way ahead of time and just need to pop them in the oven on game day.

Happy 3rd Birthday – KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer Giveaway

by Jennifer Wieland
Happy 3rd Birthday My Sweet Sanity! To celebrate we are giving away a #KitchenAid Professional Stand Mixer. #giveaway



It’s kind of a big day around here on My Sweet Sanity! Let me give you a little hint… Happy birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday My Sweet Sanity! Happy Birthday to you!… I guess that ended up being more than a little hint, huh? You got the idea though. Three years ago today My Sweet Sanity was born! 

Through the three years the blog has gone from a baking blog to a full on food blog. I’ve added in crafts, travel, reviews and family fun to make it a more family focused blog. I really like where the blog is at right now but there is always room for improvement and growth and I hope to see those come to be this year. 

So what does all this mean for you, my readers? It means that this month on the blog it is going to be one big party. Starting today and throughout the rest of the month I will be hosting several giveaways. What are the prizes you ask? They are going to be things that I absolutely love!

It’s time to celebrate with a giveaway!

To kick off the giveaways we are going big! Since I bake a lot I have not one but two KitchenAid stand mixers. (I would get a third but I’m fairly certain my husband would freak out if I did.) I honestly don’t know how I survived without one for years. I am giving one of my readers a chance to win the same model and color of one of my KitchenAid mixers.Happy 3rd Birthday My Sweet Sanity!
