Fall To do List

The leaves are changing, yesterday I got my Starbucks birthday reward (pumpkin spice frap!), and soon it will be cooling off. I always look forward to this time of year - it feels like a new beginning, even more so than the new year.

Here are some things I plan to do this Fall:

1. Make homemade soup - lots of it

2. Put togehter another awesome family Halloween costume

3. Go on walks

4. Repaint our lower living space

5. Get the majority of my Christmas shopping done

What's on your Fall to do list?

Amazon Find: An Effective Ear Thermometer for only $35!

Every time my kids got sick, I found myself scrambling to try and get an accurate temperature out of a regular thermometer. With little ones, this can be a huge struggle, but I always made it work.

A few months ago, the batteries in our traditional thermometer died and I was shocked to learn that replacing the battery was the same cost as buying a whole new thermometer! I knew I wanted an ear thermometer, but the prices blew my away.

I did some hunting on Amazon, and came across this Hylogy Digital Ear Thermometer.

What I Liked: I love the design of this thermometer. It's lightweight, comes with a stand and a storage bag, and is very easy to read. It works very quickly and seems to be accurate. I've tested it multiple times and the temperate variation seems minimal. The screen lights up in colour to inform you if a fever is present, and how intense it is. The batteries also last forever!

What I Didn't Like: Some of the functions on this thermometer are hard to use. It took me forever to figure out how to switch from F to C. Other than that, there isn't much to complain about. I do wish that there wasn't a variation between readings, but I know most home thermometers are the same way.

Final Thoughts: I'm extremely happy that I took a chance and purchased this thermometer. I purchased it for $34.99 CAD (plus 2% cash back on ebates) and to me, it was worth every penny. I haven't had a single problem with this product.

**Update - It looks like this thermometer is currently unavailable on Amazon, so hopefully it comes back in stock soon!**

Currently... September 2017

Backpack and lunch bag from Justice

Hey there! It's me, Kerri. It's been over a month since I posted and I hope you can forgive me. As we all know, late August and September are the craziest months ever and due to this, my blog was neglected. Sorry!

Watching: American Horror Story: Cult started last night. I'm also watching RHOC, Siesta Key, and Younger.

Eating: Way too much pasta, as per usual.

Doing: Basically the last month has consisted of back-to-school prep (lots of shopping), and small home improvements.

Thinking: About Halloween costumes. It's going to come so fast.

Planning: Blog posts!
