Comments Off on A Great Snack for a Good Cause

Yum! We love the Breakfast on the Go! snacks. I like the ones with dried fruit in them, and the kids like the ones with chocolate in them. šŸ™‚ These things are so perfect for traveling. They don’t weigh you down like heavier snacks and fast foods do, either. One of these little packets with […]

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of T.G.I. FRiDAY’S for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. The husband works evenings a couple times a week, and by then, dinner has been served (and, hopefully, the kitchen cleaned up) by then. The last thing I want to do is re-cook another meal […]

I’m not a great big fan of coconut, but when I got this huge jar of Tropical Traditions Gold Label Virgin Coconut Oil in the mail, my curiosity was piqued. I’d already tried Tropical Traditions Antioxidants Greens drink mix (berry flavor) and it FAR surpassed any of the dietary supplement drink mixes I’ve had. This […]

Well, well! I thought this meme was finished, but I guess it was just a summer hiatus. I like it because it’s so easy to answer and it allows me to be creative– when I’ve had enough coffee. Which I haven’t, by the way. But the morning is young. :coffeestat: Questions: 1. I can’t stand […]
