All summer long, you've tried to hide nicked table-tops under flimsy plastic cloths.  Prayed fervently that your 10-year-old chairs would hold up to your five-year-old nephew's propensity to jump on them.  Cringed every time you served chips and dip from trays that had taken one-too-many spins in the dishwasher.  Wondered for the thousandth time if your garden why your garden looked so drab.

We all "make do" when the pocket book strings are tight and it doesn't seem like hope is on the horizon for affording updates to our current backyard decor and set-ups for entertaining. There's nothing wrong with wanting to spruce up your furniture, decorations or serving items - after all, they add great joy to your gatherings and the right, bright tools are always a bonus to have on-hand.

Be a Hero this Back-to-School Season with Pirate’s Booty Snack Packs
We've found where X marks the snack spot and uncovered Pirate's Booty Snack Packs just in time for back-to-school! Thanks to Pirate's Booty, we have a whole case of snacks to enjoy throughout the school year. All thoughts and "arrr's" are that of Rural Mom. 

Now that my sons are in school again, I'm scrambling daily to find snacks to send them to school with and to have around during homework time. Fruits and veggies are great go-to's, but my kids quickly get bored of the "same 'ol, same 'ol" snack routine, so I need to have a variety on-hand to please their palettes.

Snacks like Pirate's Booty fit our needs quite nicely.  With no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives and less fat and calories than traditional fried potato chips, it's a snack indulgence I can feel good about keeping on in our Rural Mom pantry.

Get Ready to Save The Galaxy with Hasbro Toys #GuardiansoftheGalaxyEvent


Get Ready to Save The Galaxy with Hasbro #GuardiansoftheGalaxyEvent
Thanks to Hasbro, we're reliving our favorite moments of Guardians of the Galaxy and creating new memories with the MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY toy series.  All thoughts, opinions and galactic fun are that of Rural Mom and family! 

When a crazy-good film like GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY comes along, it's not the type of movie you leave behind in the theater, particularly if you have children who have quickly fallen in love with the GOTG universe!

Quotes like "I am Groot" and "I dunno... 12 percent?" will soon pepper your daily conversations.  Fantasies of space travel will fill your child's mind.  Encouraging their imaginative play is a great way to fuel their creativity, and of course, keep their excitement and love for the film alive.

Hasbro celebrates the film's rag-tag group of heroes with a toy line that features action figures, role-play items, spaceships and all your favorite aliens from GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY.  A line of quality toys that are perfect for helping your little ones to find ways to save the galaxy in your own backyard!
