Disney's Toy Story 3 On Ice Was Amazing!

This past Wednesday, my family attended Disney's Toy Story 3 on Ice! We had never been to an ice show and we weren't quite sure what to expect.

My boys are 7 and 4 and they were completely entertained, from start to finish. The skaters all had amazing costumes on and really tried to engage with the audience.

I must say, that out of all the characters, Barbie and Ken stole the show! When they spotted one another, across the ice, the crown erupted in cheers. Ken even tried on some of his classic outfits for Barbie.

Also, when it came to doing stunts, Barbie and Ken did an amazing job. It was like watching Olympic figure skating!

Recipe: Coconut Scotchie Bars & Ambiance Coffee! #MyBaristaMoment


I love coffee! The only problem is that I have to drink decaf. I suffer from terrible migraines and they can be triggered by caffeine. If I order a drink from a coffee shop, I can tell after one sip if it is really decaf or not. Sometimes the barista will make a mistake. But, that mistake can mean that I might be bed ridden, for a day.

So, when I had the chance to shop at Smart & Final for some Ambience coffee, I was so excited. If I have my own decaf on hand, I don't need to worry about any caffeine mistakes.

One of my other loves...sweets! There is nothing better to enjoy with coffee, than a nice homemade treat. One of my favorite cookies is oatmeal scotchies. So, I decided to put a new twist on my favorite and create Coconut Scotchie bars! And of course, I want to share the recipe!



2/3 Cup Butter, Softened
2 Cups Brown Sugar, Packed
3 Eggs
1 tsp. Vanilla
2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 tsp. Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. Salt
1 1/2 Cups Butterscotch Chips
1 Cup Shredded or Flaked Coconut


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease 9x13 baking pan.
  2. In large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla.
  3. Slowly add flour, baking powder and salt to the creamed mixture.
  4. Fold in butterscotch chips and coconut.
  5. Bake 20 to 25 minute. Let cool completely before cutting.
These bars were really easy and quick to make. The longest part of the recipe is waiting for them to cool. I always cheat and throw them in the freezer so I can cut them sooner. I am not patient, at all!


These bars were perfect with my Ambiance decaf coffee. I dug out my coffee mug from Hawaii and used some coconut milk in my coffee. I wanted to keep with the tropical theme!

Smart & Final has some great motivators for you to switch to Ambiance coffee! Not only is the coffee awesome, but you can go HERE and enter the code from your Ambience coffee purchase on the bottom of your receipt. You will then be entered to win some great prizes!
  • First prize (one grand prize per week, 3 total): DeLonghi BC02648 Cafe Nero Combo Coffee/Espresso Maker, a $200 value!
  • One of six $50 SmartCash cards to be used at Smart & Final (two winners per week, 6 winners total)
Plus, you can go HERE and vote for your favorite Ambiance Coffee recipe! Everyone who votes will be entered for a chance to win $50 worth of Ambience Coffee products (6 winners - Two winners per week)!

Fresh, Healthy & Quick Meals With Freschef + A Coupon!

Have you ever gotten home from work and dreaded the prospect of cooking dinner? Or, maybe you love the cooking part and dread the prep work. Well, I had the opportunity to try out a new product, Freschef meals, that are sold exclusively at Fry's.

Freschef meals are complete meal kits that are ready to cook and nutritionally balanced. Each kit contains 1 carb, 1 protein and 1 vegetable. They are handmade daily in Arizona with fresh local ingredients and are never frozen! You can have a healthy, freshly prepared meal on the table in less than 20 minutes.

When I tried the Freschef meals, I was expecting something similar to a thawed out t.v. dinner. This was not the case, at all! I could really taste that the ingredients were fresh and I loved that all of the packaging was clear so I could see exactly what was inside.

Freschef offers quite a few choices like Steak Poivre, Chicken Piccata and Black Bean Turkey Chili. But, I must say, my favorite was the Thai Honey Chicken! It was a little sweet and a little spicey!

Freschef meals are available in about 70 Fry's stores, across Arizona. They can be found in the meat case, near the ground beef. To find a location that carries Freschef meals go HERE and click on the My Store tab.

Also, there is a $2 off coupon located on the Freschef Facebook page!

Disclosure: I was invited to sample Freschef meals and given a few meal kits to cook at home. All opinions in this post are my own.

Review: PlayGrounds Fun Zone & Cafe!

My family was invited to check out a new indoor play area, for kids. PlayGrounds Fun Zone & Cafe is located near 83rd avenue and Union Hills, in Glendale.

PlayGrounds had plenty to keep my 7 and 4 year old busy. Everytime I looked up they were scurrying back to this spot. They just kept waving and smiling. I new they were having fun because they weren't fighting!

The boys loved this double slide. It gave them a chance to race each other. Boys can be so competitive!

After about an hour, they worked up quite an appetite. The food coming from the cafe looked so good! I have never seen an indoor play area where you can order food and let your kids play, at the same time. There was plenty of tables to sit at and they even had super comfy leather couches!

You can order sandwiches, wraps salads and even gourmet coffee drinks! The cafe menu can be viewed HERE. Everything is made from scratch, including the Uh-May-Zing cinnamon rolls!

The cinnamon roll didn't last long, at all. Noah likes to think of himself as a cinnamon roll connoisseur. He let me know that these cinnamon rolls were better than the ones you can buy at the mall!

For those of you with toddlers, not to worry! You won't have to worry about your little ones being trampled by the older kids. There is a section dedicated to kiddos, 48" and shorter. When my boys were younger, they loved playing on the toys at the mall. We would usually be there about 5 minutes before they were knocked down by a group of 10 year olds that were obviously to big to be there. It drove me crazy! So, it was nice to see this space, just for the toddlers.

I would definitely recommend PlayGrounds! The price to get in is $8 for the first child, $2 off for each sibling and parents play FREE! I can tell you, when it is the middle of summer, this place will be hopping!

Please stop by PlayGrounds and check it out, for yourself. I am confident that you will not be disappointed. You can also head over and check out their Facebook Page! Be sure to let them know that Arizona Thrifty Mom sent you.

Disclosure: I was given free entrance to PlayGrounds for my two boys. In exchange, I have given my opinion in a blog post and 100% honest review.
