Can Going to the Pool Get any Better?


Our crew loves going to the pool. We average at least once a week during the summer and supplement that with days at the splashpark and jumping in the sprinkler. Our vacation to Sea World was that much more exciting because there was a water park and the boys even got the chance to go down a water slide with Dad! We enjoy us some outside activities that involve aqua.

Yes! I discovered a way to make it even better. Don’t laugh at me, but because I’m cheap we almost always pack a lunch. It’s healthier. It’s cheaper. And it generally tastes better than hot food on a hot day. But the downside is that if I pack it in a cooler, it generally gets pretty wet as the ice melts. So usually I put it in an insulated lunchbox and hope it stays cool enough to not make us sick or taste grody.

BUT just yesterday in the mail I received a new goody – Fridge To Go. I received a small luncheon size bag that will hold about 4 cans. I packed hot dogs, 2 yogurts, spoons and a coke for us in it today. Then I just grabbed a lunchbox and threw in all of the not cold food. You would not believe how cold everything stayed. It honestly felt like I had just grabbed it out of the fridge.

The bag folds up and is stored in your freezer. When you’re ready to go, you grab it, unfold and push the bottom down and it’s ready to go.

My friends were super impressed. Several of them want their own. They might be slightly deterred by the price tag – the small bag is $22, but there is FREE shipping and hopefully as they’re rolling out these new items there will be an opportunity to get them at a discounted price. You know if there is, you’ll be able to find it right here on MelissaStuff.


  1. Going to the pool in summer is the best time and truly I love water. I am drinking so much water and I also like to stay in water.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
