Stockpile Review - Investing for Everyone - Free $5 referral

Have you heard of Stockpile?  Stockpile makes the stock market easy as pie!  Seriously.  You can buy fractions of a share similarly to how you can purchase a slice of pizza.  Amazon stock costs more than $900 a share but through Stockpile you can purchase just the amount you want - $25 no problem.  Fraction shares are just the answer to making the stock market accessible to anyone and everyone.  Stockpile offers over 1,000 stocks and is federally regulated by the SEC & FINRA so you can trust where you're investing your money.

Not only can your purchase stock for yourself but you can gift stock to others as well - talk about a unique gift idea.

Would you like $5 of your own stock just for signing up?  Check it out here and see just how easy it is to use!  Not only will you get $5 of stock in your account but I will receive $5 of free stock as well - thanks!

You can purchase fraction shares for Apple, Tesla, Facebook or 1,000 others.  I just redeemed a gift card for $25 worth of GOOGL stock.  I have just gotten my feet wet but I am really looking forward to diving into Stockpile even more!

I really like the idea of teaching our kids about investing and this could be just the way to do it.  I think it would be fun for the kids to see just how much their favorite brands grow in the next 10 years.

Disclosure:  In exchange for my honest review I received a $25 gift card to try out Stockpile.  This post contains a referral link.  I am not a market professional and not responsible for gains or losses that you may experience.  I am not affiliated with or own and investment in any company or brand mentioned and have no plans to do so.  Securities products are not FDIC insured.  Not bank guaranteed.  May lose value.

Just wanted to let you know that we will be on vacation for the next week!  Stay tuned for some fun beach pictures.

C's Baseball Party & Father's Day

Our Chalkboard

There has been a lot of baseball around here lately!  I have been meaning to post about C's Baseball Party for weeks.  He had a great time.  Many loved ones were able to celebrate with us which is really the best part if you ask me!  Enjoy a few photos.

 Clay's Field Cake

 And his bat and ball cakes (the #10)

Another view

 A and B made baseball cookies

 Party favors included Cracker Jacks, Bouncy "Base"balls, and Chocolate Baseball Candy

 As well as baseball lollipops!

 The castle bounce house was super fun!  If you are local, we love Addy & Jax Bounce House rentals.

 Jumping fun

 I think my favorite part was the baseball themed ice cream bar.  We had all the MLB team hats for sundae bowls.

 And the girls and I made baseball themed wooden spoons for added fun.

Now, onto Father's Day!  The kids made tie dye cupcakes for David for Father's Day.  They came out yummy!  The kids and I had been working hard for a few weeks to clean out our garage for David as a present.  Our garage was piled high with boxes.  I don't watch the show Hoarders but I have seen snippets of previews and sadly our garage reminded me of that show.  It was actually fun to go through and sort through so many things and David was so surprised!  It's not finished but our garage looks so much better and hopefully David and I can finish the job together.

Father's Day Cupcakes

The kids enjoying snow cones at the Express game.  F is there behind D but you can't really see him in this photo.

Then we all went to the afternoon Round Rock Express game, which was Baby G's first Express game.  More Baseball!  We had a lot of fun!  Hope everyone had a great Father's Day!
