Birch Benders

As y’all already know – We’re big paleo eaters. It’s been amazing for our health but it can be a little challenging at times when cravings kick in. A big one in my family is waffles and pancakes. Hudson is obsessed with waffles and the kids always want pancakes on the weekends. However, I really hate using regular sugar and flour – So much bleach, gunk and chemicals, so I would take forever trying to make paleo pancakes and they’d only come out “okay”.

But when I stumbled across a Birch Benders’ Paleo Waffle/Pancake mix in Sprouts I was SO excited. “Only Add Water SO much easier than 20 minutes worth of trying to get the consistency and taste justtt right.

Well.. 2 years later and it is a staple in our home. That long being a customer and I happened to get an invite to an exclusive writer’s event thanks to Sprouts to Birch Bender’s Denver office!! I was literally giddy!

Once we got there we were greeted by the sweetest people ever – Their employees were so friendly, really passionate about their product and just happy with life (I would too if I worked for such a fun company!)

The event was hosted by Sprouts and as usual they supplied delicious meals and drinks! Thanks Sprouts, y’all are the best!

Now.. Something I hadn’t known (Not sure HOW) was that they had created some DELICIOUS new products – Frozen Waffles!! Even PALEO waffles which they had learned to make straight from master waffle makers in Belgium.. How amazing it that?! They were so dedicated to creating delicious and healthy waffles that they searched all over the world. That is a company I love to support!

Now I had a delicious, REALLY quick option for Hudson for breakfast since he’s obsessed with waffles! (And not just any kind… But specifically the frozen kind, because it’s an on-the-go-can-hold-it-while-I-am-rambunctious kind of waffle.. LOL) They taste just like a normal waffle but fill my children’s tummies with the good, wholesome ingredients they deserve.

Their theme for the event was Waffle Ice Cream Sandwiches. They had a whole bar set up ready with all their new waffle types, different ice cream options and toppings. It was so delicious and brilliant – Decided I am going to do this for Hudson’s birthday party in November at the Colorado Railroad Museum! It’s going to be SO fun, so you’ll be seeing more of these kinds of photos soon 😉

Birch Benders is such an amazing company – Not just because of their delicious products but because of their passion behind it. We’ve been their fans for 2 years now but this event has only exacerbated this.. We’ll forever be Birch Benderites and we’re so proud they’re in our gorgeous state!

Fondue Fairytails at The Melting Pot

Y’all with girls are sure to understand – There is nothing more magical than princesses… My step-daughter LOVES all things Princess, even at 7 years old and I love it. It reminds me of a simpler time when I too still envisioned myself as a princess finding my prince charming 😉

When I heard The Melting Pot in Louisville, CO had a Fondue Fairytails event I HAD to take my kids! My step daughter dressed up in a lovely Arielle dress, a tiara and brought a mini koala pet.. “Because every princess has a small pet in the movies..”

The boys dressed in their Sunday best and we made our way to their restaurant! It was SO adorable – It looked like an old mine.. Very Colorado-esque!

Their staff was so welcoming and sweet and REALLY got into the Prince and Princess roles.. It was so genuine and fun for the kids. We were sat down and immediately greeted by one of the best waiters we’ve ever had – Kay! She was so sweet and REALLY got our kids excited about the foods and events!

It was only $34.95 per adult and $19.95 per kid and it included a 4 course meal!! The kids were ecstatic when asked which kind of chocolate sauce they wanted in the end 😉

Hubby’s meat platter!

All of the meals were amazing and they were very accommodating to food allergies/preferences!

There was dancing, singing, games, hand outs of tiaras/crowns/wands and in the end they gave the kids autographed photos of Princess LaFonda (HAHAHA – She said it was like Napoleon Dynamite) and the King (Who told Brent he was going to the “Pit of despair, dilly dilly” LOL)

Their cocktails were divine

It was such an amazing experience for both my kids and us adults and we’ll absolutely be back SOON (The kids are already asking!)

Thank you Melting Pot for creating such a fun event for our kiddos – We love restaurants like you!
