Beddy's Bedding: my thoughts after a month of use

I can't even handle how much I love this bedding and what a game changer it is. My two and four years old can make their own beds.. and it looks good.. AND they have bunk beds! All they have to do is zip it up and it turns into a perfectly made bed.

After about a month of use I thought I would check in and give you my final verdict on the bedding. 

Price: At first look, the price seems a little steep and that's one of the biggest hesitations I heard when people saw my initial video. Buuuut if you honestly buy a comforter, blanket, and fitted sheet from a trendy place like Land of Nod or what not, you are actually saving money. It is just all bundled into one price. Plus that Land of Nod comforter is going to look like a crumpled mess on that top bunk. :) I 100% think the price is right on the money and worth every single penny. 

How They Wash: So about a week after I received my glorious bedding, my kids got the stomach flu an threw up allllll over it. I was devastated and thought for sure we had ruined them. But after I washed them, I legit couldn't believe they looked as good as new and everything same right out without any issues at all. The minky on the inside didn't pill or stain or change whatsoever. They kept their shape and went back on as if nothing had happened. 

So my final verdict on this bedding is still a resounding YES!! They are every bit as amazing as you would hope they would be. They have made our lives so much easier and their room look so much more put together on any given day.

The Instant Pot : My Modern Day Love Story

You want to know my honest to goodness thoughts on the instant pot

Go freaking buy one right now. Don't even read this. And before it even gets to your door, throw away your crockpot and rice cooker. This thing legit rocks my world. But if you need more convincing, I suggest reading this blog post. Hah 

Let me preface by saying I am not the best cook. I am actually quite terrible at it. So anything that helps out in that department is my best friend in the whole world. Cue instant pot. It hasn't let me down once since I bought it. Everything I have tried to make has turned out great. And so stinking easy and fast! I am going to walk you through some of my faves. 

Shredded Chicken: Having shredded chicken in your fridge is amazing cause you can throw it on a salad, eat it with beans, make tacos with it, etc etc. But the making of said shredded chicken is annoyingggg. It takes forever and I always dry it out. With the instant pot, I throw in frozen chicken breasts. (yes rock hard frozen solid not defrosted chicken breasts) with some water. (somewhere around 1/4-1/2 cup) and cook for about 10 minutes. (the time depends on how thick your chicken is. if it's not cooked all the way through, no worries, you can always just close the lid up and cook for a few minutes longer) Then when I am done I pull the chicken out and shred with my kitchen aid. I could do this step with a fork but seeing that I don't cook, this is basically the only use my kitchen aid gets and it works really well. haha. The chicken legit falls apart and is crazy juicy. It's not dry and nasty like when I do it in a crockpot or my stove. 

Soup: And not your nasty tastes like every other soup you've ever made crock pot soup. Juicy chicken and yummy flavor all in less than 30 minutes soup. I make a lot of soups where I just throw frozen chicken breasts, rinsed uncooked brown rice, chicken stock, veggies, and whatever seasoning and its amazingggg every time. I've made chili with beans and a soup with sausage, frozen cubed potatoes, and kale. Basically I have yet to mess it up. Which is huge. You just throw it all in there, push the soup button, and come back when it beeps to perfect amazing tasting soup. If you hate experimenting, there are like a frabillion recipes on pinterest and such. 

Lunch for One: It's the hardest ever to eat healthy when your a busy human. For me personally, I eat lunch when my kids are down for naps, and I am not about to waste all that precious time preparing a healthy meal. So I'll throw a chicken breast and some salsa in the Instant pot and 10 minutes later I have a healthy meal. Or you can hard boil like 87 eggs to perfection at the same time. (k not quite 87 but as many that will fit) 

Other ideas for the instant pot:
Steal cut oats super quickly
Perfect fluffy quinoa in just minutes  
Brown Rice in about 20 minutes 
You can sautΓ© in the instant pot so basically you can throw away your stove top too. 

This isn't a sponsored post and I paid for the pot with my hard earned money and haven't regretted it for a single second. I use it at LEAST once a week (usually more around 3 or 4 times) and every time I do I want to hug it because I am just so dang grateful for it. 

I'd suggest checking it recipes on pinterest or you favorite cooking blogs and being a part of this Facebook cult.. I mean group. Haha these people are legit! They make like cheesecake and stuff in theirs. #goals 

BUY ON AMAZON I have the 6QT but if you have a big family or cook in large quantities, I would probably get the 8QT
