Granola Gourmet BLOG GIVEAWAY!!

When I am out and about with my kidsand they say "I'M HUNGRY"(this happens every time we LEAVE the house) The last thing I want to do it have to drive through a fast food or (fat food as we like to call it ;) joint to grab them something that is UNHEALTHY and pricey!

When we were asked to review the granola Gourmet bars we were excited, but HONESTLY I was a bit worried, because we ALL know that there are 500 Granola bar companies out there trying to get our kids hooked on JUNK & SUGAR!!

I did a bit of digging into these bars before showing them to my boys and I was plesantly suprised at what I found! MAIN INGREDIENT....ORGANIC OATS! I have to say that when I got the package there were 4 bars to sample, and MAMA had to decide WHO got what...

I myself had the Ultimate Cran-Orange. I can't begin to explain the smell when i opened the package...You can almost SMELL the flavor! ...and the taste...I can honestly say I have NEVER had a granola bar I liked more. This is NOT your average run of the mill granola bar by any means, and after sampling the bar I didn't want to have to share with the boys..BUT I DID!!

You see my boys LOVE granola but they are picky about what they will eat. I couldn't wait to see their take on them. So after school for snack we split the three remaining bars into 3 pieces each.

The boys ....LOVED THEM! You see these bars have texture...crunch oats that aren't to hard all wrapped up in gooey goodness!

My 9 year old LOVED the Ultimate Mocha Fudge
Little man who is 6 Couldn't get enough of the Ultimate Berry or the Ultimate Mocha Fudge

The Ultimate Berry when opened was like the smelled so good and it is the FIRST thing my boys both noticed! 

The chocolaty bars are sweet but NOT to sweet and they are gooey but also have a bit of crunch from the oats..not like any bar I have ever eaten the boys LOVED THEM! The best part is they are GOOD FOR THEM!! They were a perfect snack for after school and right before we sat down for homework.
They are also PERFECT for moms on the go that want something easy and healthy for their little ones, OR for themselves!!

The bars are KOSHER, have NO WHEAT, NO dairy and are HIGH in Omega 3's!! They are PACKED with Whole Grains and made with over 75% ORGANIC ingredients! THEY SCREAM HEALTHY and they TASTE YUMMMMMMMMMMMY!!!

Not only do they taste great, THEY ARE MADE IN AMERICA and to me that is a HUGE PLUS! This company GIVES BACK, a portion of your purchase helps fight diabetes!

We WILL be purchasing these! The best part is you can get them on AMAZON!!!

Super Bowl Party Game Review .....Python Printable Games

We are a HUGE sports, live, breath......SPORTS. So we were thrilled when we got asked to review this Super bowl Party Game Pack. I can honestly say my 9 YEAR OLD was the happiest, and every day we got asked about 10 times if TONIGHT was family game night and IF we were going to get to play the FOOTBALL GAMES!

Let me start by saying this is GREAT family fun, even if your not a HUGE football fan. The pack is loaded with games, and fun for everyone. I only wish there were MORE Mad LIBS because those were my FAVORITE. I also think it would be great if there were a page added that was geared a bit more for the kids because I know MANY families who would have a blast with this.

The boys did LOVE the word search and at age 6 & 9 they tore through it in about 15 minutes!
My favorite page was the MadLibs

It ended with:
 Swapping spit with a stinky skunk. Yes, I'd rather be anywhere else in the world. I'd rather be poop-faced drunk. 
Alex WOULDN'T read it to daddy because the word POOP was in it, but BOTH the boys got the biggest laugh out of the MadLibs!

Hubby was rocking the trivia pages. His excitement was get answers right that were WRONG on the answer sheet! Since our pack was a 2010 pack SOME of the items have changed on a FEW of the pages, and with each one he found he was thrilled with himself! Some of the trivia was Challenging, some I was able to answer and SOME the kids even knew! We spent a good hour reading football trivia from the PAGES in this pack and had fun talking about them, and laughing about some of them.

A few of the games are VERY MUCH for a party with friends, so we looked over them, and will save them for SUPER BOWL to play with others.

Overall this pack is a great fun!  All three of the boys had fun "guessing" for the trivia questions.

If your going to be hosting a Super Bowl Party I would HIGHLY recommend Super Bowl Party Games Pack. Great for the GIRLS and for the guys! They are easy to use and once you pay, you print them right at home, you can even print a copy for each person at the party!

Python Printable Games has many other themed packs you might like as well, here is a link to try a few fun pages for FREE 

I was asked by Python Printable Games to review the Football party pack. I was given the pack for free. The review is my thoughts on the product and I was in no way paid or compensated to give this company a good review.

A little funny from US to YOU....The truth about sheep...

Today was a NO SCHOOL day.

Little man was out of school 3 days last week, so has been in the house for 6 days now....MAMA is about to go KOO-KOO. To many days, hours, minutes of being stuffed in a  tiny apartment with a 6 year old will do that to any mom! I have heard the same stories, poems, songs, arguments NON STOP FOR DAYS!!

We have poems due at school in a few weeks the boys have to stand infont of the class and resite the poems for a grade.

Little Man has a nursery rhyme...
So he stood up and said, 

"Little Bo-Peep has lost her sheep,
And can't tell where to find them;
Leave them alone, And they'll come home,
Wagging their tails behind them."
and his big brother replied.....
"NO WAY THAT ISN'T TRUE, because SHEEP do NOT have tails, they have those little cotton balls like a bunny" 
(When he found out that they DO indeed have tail before being "taken away" he was very mad...I think he is going to be a animal rights activist....and if we would let him, I KNOW he would be a vegetarian!)

List those Giveaways!

It's a Monday thing! Feel free to add your giveaways here so that others can find them :) Grab the link and add it to your blog as well so that others can find all these great giveaways as well!

Sometimes crying over "Spilled Milk" is the only thing you can do.

The last week has been very crazy here, filled with a sick little boy, a hurting mama, a grumpy husband, and many other things that are plain NORMAL life. When so many of these things pile up it doesn't feel like "normal" life anymore what ever NORMAL is, and it just starts to wear you down.

Worn down like those little pencils my 9 year old brings home in his backpack because the teacher won't let him have them at school anymore. Those little eraser one, end point on other couldn't sharpen if you try pencils. Worn down like a favorite blanket that you JUST can't get rid of even though it has holes in it. Worn down like the sole of your favorite shoes that you can't part know what I am talking about, because at one point in time EVERY mother feels this. That feeling like if one more thing goes wrong she isn't going to be able to fight back the tears.

My children know that when i hit that point, the tears will fall and this mornign was the cherry on top of it all.

Master B got up coughing he still hasn't been able to get rid of the cold he has and it is driving me nuts, but I KNOW it is just a cold and taking him to the Dr. is POINTLESS! My neck was a little stiff this morning, so I wasn't feeling the best myself. It is a weekend and like clockwork bailey did her token ONE bark to let me know she was ready to get out of her cage and go outside. I JUST WANT TO SLEEP! Both the boys were sleeping but I got up and took the dog out. i have yet to get coffee and I am not sure WHY I forget EVERY TIME I go to the store but I do, and this morning I really could have used it! Once the boys were awake the fighting over what movie to choose began and I tried to tune it out, but it was starting to wear on me.

I decided to get the rest of the laundry done early and start on the kitchen so I could relax a big this afternoon. I can't stand to get back up on laundry because NO MATTER how hard you try it feels you can Never get caught back up on it! kitchen was almost done, I reached up to put the glass bowls in the cabinet............

GLASS EVERYWHERE! I know they were only bowls, but as soon as it happened the boys came running and master B said "MOMMY, I am so sorry that you broke your FAVORITE bowl!"

He knew! I know it SOUNDS silly but it really was my favorite bowl! It was a LARGE blue bowl and the side of it said cookies. It was something I bought after Christmas about 10 years ago on sale at Kohls, I didn't pay a lot for it, but there was something about it! It was tall and a nice weight. I used it for EVERYTHING! As I looked at the counter and the floor, I couldn't hold back the tears, I am still upset about it. BOTH my large bowls are broken, and it will be a long while I am sure before I find another FAVORITE.

So they say Don't cry over "spilled MIlK"  but this mama is going to tell you that SOMETIMES it is the only thing you can do! Sometimes it is the only thing that makes you feel better about a situation.

good-by blue bowl you will be missed

NO ONE ELSE is aloud to get sick!

We went from my pulled neck to a sick kid overnight. My neck a week later is still hurting and little guy missed the last 3 days of school with a bit of a fever and a stuffy nose. tonight Master A went to bed coughing.
I think I am going to go buy a few cans of Lysol in the morning so that I can spray the whole house from top to bottom in hopes of getting rid of what ever is flaoting around in here!

I opened the windows today to let in fresh air, and I vacuumed the floors TWICE.

now it is time for a shower and tiger balm.....I can hear my pillow calling me!
