Have you ever tried Almondmilk

Note: This post is sponsored by Silk, but all opinions are 100% my own.

Andy eats cereal almost every single night before bed and at least a couple times a week for breakfast. Cereal is a staple around Casa de Dorobek. Sometimes, if I’m being extra nice, I will make his bowl of cereal and bring it to him in bed. I challenged tricked him into trying Silk Almondmilk the other night… I brought him a bowl of his fave cereal covered in Almondmilk. I didn’t pre warn him or even get out my phone to get a picture or video of his reaction because I wanted an as honest opinion of Almondmilk as possible. I did not want him to think anything was different about his pre bed snack. The Almondmilk deserved a fair shot!

So get this… Andy chose to use Silk Almondmilk in his cereal the next morning. True! I made him pose with the container in this picture because I needed proof! He’s never tried anything other than good ol’ cows milk in his beloved treat. He claims the vanilla flavor added a little extra spunk to his cereal. Ok, so those are my words, but I think his exact words were, “vanilla flavor is a nice change “.

This picture is from this morning, y’all! I can’t help but post the cuteness since I’m eating my cereal with Almondmilk and a heart appeared! A heart in my milk! I think it’s a sign that you will love Almondmilk too. And Maxwell clearly wants to give it a taste test!


Have you ever tasted Silk Almondmilk? You should absolutely give it a try and let me know what you and your fam think about the silky, vanilla goodness! Oh and I use it regularly in smoothies too!

Koala bear baby costume {cute baby costumes}

I’ve got all kinds of cute baby costumes brewing for my sweet Max baby this Halloween! First up, a DIY Koala bear costume! This one is easy peasy, y’all! And it all started with a grey onesie and grey pants. (Here are 18 more DIY cute baby costumes that all started with a onesie!)

Here’s what you need:

  • Grey onesie
  • Grey pants with footies (His are from Baby Gap.)
  • Grey hat
  • Black, grey, and white felt
  • Safety pins
  • Koala bear mask template
  • sewing machine or a thread and needle

My Poppet has a really cute Koala mask that you can print and use to make this piece of the costume for free! I utilized her template, but decided not to make it out of cardboard since I wanted to attach it to a hat that would cover Maxwell’s forehead. He’s a pretty easy going baby, but I’m pretty sure a cardboard mask covering half of his face would be a no go! After I printed out her template, I traced it with a sharpie onto grey felt and cut it out.

I used her pattern to cut the rest of the nose, ears, and eyes out of felt too. I decided to make the ears a little bigger and used white and a darker grey felt.

I attached all of the Koala bear mask pieces with just a needle and thread. I always save those hotel sewing kits for small projects like this!

Then, I attached the mask to the grey hat with safety pins. Like this… Koala bear baby costume

I cut the Koala paws out of black felt and safety pinned then to the feet of the pants. I did the same thing with the white felt oval on the belly! And here’s Maxwell sporting his handmade Koala costume…
