Rise and Shine September 5 – PNW air quality, we get a T-Rex costume in the mail, Crock-tober, Bushnell binoculars, Diono car seat, more

Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! Today is the first day of school for my kiddos. They are so excited. I’m excited. Usually it would be the first day of school for Mr. Queen Bee, too (he’s a high school special ed teacher) but he’s taking this year off to help with Queen Bee and LuLaRoe full-time! I’m excited to be working with him from home – it adds a lot of flexibility to our family schedule. All summer I have been terrible about staying up late at night and sleeping in – but last night I made myself go to bed by 10:30 and was up at 6 a.m. – that’s going to be my goal for getting up in the morning this month. I get so much more done when I get up early versus going to bed late.

The air quality in Coeur d’Alene is terrible right now, due to all the wildfires happening in the northwest right now. Last night it reached the highest level of warning – and I’m hoping it lets up today. Recess and all outdoor activities are canceled at school today – and I can’t imagine all the energy the teachers will be dealing with inside today – hoping it goes well for them. And my heart breaks for all the families who are having to evacuate and I’m praying the firefighters stay safe. Let’s hope we see some rain soon – although we see none on the forecast for the next couple weeks. And then there is Irma headed to Florida and flood clean-up in Texas – it’s just a crazy time right now, isn’t it!?! What’s going on in your area!?! I’m hoping you’re safe and well.

Earlier this week we posted about this Universal T-Rex Inflatable Costume on Amazon. I had to order it and it showed up yesterday. Mr. Queen Bee put it on and – even though I knew it had been delivered – still managed to scare me and the kids with it. It’s hilarious. I laughed so hard. I asked him if he wanted to check the mail with it – and he politely declined, but I think we’ll get a lot of good use out of this. 🙂

I also plan to get some good use out of my crockpot this fall! Yesterday I put a call out for crockpot recipes as part of our Crock-tober series. It’s been a few years since we’ve done this series and I already received a couple of recipes that I’m excited about! Send in your favorite crockpot recipes and if I feature your recipe on the blog, you’ll get a $15 Amazon gift card! Find the details here.
