I am so excited to be back working on my blog again – it is one of my favorite things to do. The last few years have had lots of ups and downs for me. The best thing that happened is that I got married. I am now Kay Tiffin! I was married June 30, 2018 to Rex – he is a great man.

We have had a great couple years and hope for many more!

My family had some bad times too – like so many other of you. One of my brothers passed away unexpectedly – darn cancer! My mother is suffering from dementia and in memory care.

Then came 2019 and Covid 19. This has touched all of our lives – mostly not in a good way. I worked in the Travel Industry for the same company the last 20+ years. I was furloughed in March of 2020 and am still looking for a job.

Like everyone else I am tired of this – I am tired of being home while my husband is gone all day. It gets so lonely and depressing at time. So I decided I need to do things I love – and my blog is one thing! I will be reviewing products and books. Sharing recipes and craft projects. I am hoping to get healthy along the way too! Let me know what you would like to hear about. I am so glad to be back and grateful for all of you! I hope for only the best for you all.

“I received free Werther’s Original® products in order to host the Werther’s Original® sponsored MommyParty.  The opinions expressed here are my own.”
werthersoriginal_logoLast Saturday we had Rex’s family over for a fun Munch ‘n Movie night.  I was so excited to be hosting a movie party along with some great tasting Werther’s Original Caramel Popcorn.

IMG_1776I couldn’t wait for Saturday night to come. We had some great snacks and also a movie I had been wanting to watch for awhile. Here is a bit about the movie Soul Surfer.

The Sony Pictures, family-friendly film, Soul Surfer SOUL SURFER is the inspiring true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack and courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The film features an all-star cast, including AnnaSophia Robb and Helen Hunt, with Carrie Underwood in her film debut, and Dennis Quaid. In the wake of this life-changing event that took her arm and nearly her life, Bethany’s feisty determination and steadfast beliefs spur her toward an adventurous comeback that gives her the grit to turn her loss into a gift for others. Starring Helen Hunt, Dennis Quaid, AnnaSophia Robb, Lorraine Nicholson and Carrie Underwood.

When Saturday night came I had made up a great tasting snack to go along with the movie. Since there is a chill in the air I also had hot apple cider for who ever wanted it.  I made some Caramel Popcorn Snack Mix – here is the recipe. It was so easy to do.

Caramel Popcorn Snack Mix
Prep time:
Total time:
  • 8 cups Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn
  • 3 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 2 cups mini pretzel twist
  • 1 cup M&M's
  1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and toss together


Here is Rex enjoying his snack.  We don’t spend enough time with our families so it was so nice to have Rex’s sister and her family over.  Everyone really enjoyed the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn both just as is an the snack mix I made up.

If you are looking for a good movie you will love Soul Sufer both Tracie and I ended up crying during it.  I love how the movie talked about faith and how that gets you through a tough time. I also love that this was a true story.  Bethany is truly a remarkable person and we can all learn from her to never give up.

When the night was done – I had plenty of the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn to send home with everyone.  What I loved about the Werther’s Original® Caramel Popcorn is that it had a nice rich and creamy caramel flavor.  Once you start eating it I had a hard time stopping.  It also reminded me of a neighbor we had growing up that made caramel popcorn balls.

All and all everyone had a great night and we spent time with family and friends with some good memories of the time spent together. I can’t wait till the next time we can be together.
