Dollar General Diaper #Review


For the past couple of days, we have been trying out Dollar General’s new line of Premium Diapers. Usually we purchase other premium brands, so I was excited to see how they compared.

I was surprised to find that the size 5 fit Jp with no problems. They even looked to be the same dimensions as the size 6 diapers we already had.

We really did like them. There were NO blowouts, and we all know how important that is. For the price they compare very well to premium brands!

Our diaper stage is almost over, but we will be switching brands for the end. We bought a training potty last night, and started using it today, but we will still need diapers for night time!

Head over to your local Dollar General and check out their entire line of diapers and baby products!!

*Disclosure- I was sent one pack of Dollar General Premium Diapers in exchange for this review. No monetary compensation has or will be made. Please refer to my full Disclosure Policy for further information.*

Ranch Pasta Salad

So I have been TRYING for 4 days now to get this post uploaded. Something always happens when I sit down to type it. Jp has been fighting a sinus infection from HELL for the past 2 weeks, so majority of my time has been spent taking care of him and trying to disinfect my whole house. MOMMA CAN’T AFFORD TO GET SICK!! Well I finally sat down and took the time to type out this awesomeness!

Normally I am not a Pasta Salad fan. There is something about the tangy vinaigrette’s that just seem to put me off. Well…fast forward to a hectic day at home with little man, and me not feeling like making a huge trip to the store. What resulted was THE BEST Pasta Salad that I have ever tasted. The Hubbs AND Little Man even approved, so you know it must have been tasty! So here it is…tentatively called


Here’s what you will need:

  • 1 package of your favorite pasta ( I used pipe rigate because the other ingredients collect in the pasta, making for yummy bites!!)
  • 1 can of Rotel
  • 1 can of corn
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 2 Roma tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup of Hidden Valley Ranch Dressing

First, start the water to cook the pasta. You will want the pasta to be al dente so it doesn’t turn mushy by the time you’re ready to serve! When the pasta is done, drain and set in the fridge to cool.

Dice both tomatoes and the clove of garlic. Add them to a mixing bowl. Drain both the corn and rotel and add to the bowl as well. Measure out 1/2 cup of Ranch Dressing and add it in, mixing gently to incorporate. Season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste. Once the pasta has thoroughly cooled, add it to the bowl mixing once again. Serve immediately, or cover and refrigerate until ready to eat!

We loved it the first night, but as with many dishes, it was SO DELICIOUS the next day! I used mild rotel because it was all we had this time, but I will be buying an extra spicy one for the next round! Maybe throwing in some diced jalapeno to this would add the perfect kick too! I can’t wait to play around with this recipe!

I hope you all love this, and as always, if you try the recipe out please let me know what you think!!!
