MommyPR in anticipation of their Launch Party on July 4th is giving away a Rubbermaid All in One 20pc Set. What is great about these Rubbermaid containers are that the lids snap to the bases so they are easy to find, they also snap to each other, so you can stack multiple lids and containers together AND one lid fits multiple containers! That means NO more lost lids! Yay!!

MommyPR Launch Party!

MommyPR is giving away a Burberry London Purse valued at $650! Can you believe it?? This is to start off the launch of the new website with a bang. Just in time for July 4th! ;)

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters Review

I was given a chance by My Blog Spark to taste this product and let everyone know what I thought of it. Today I received the box in the mail – it contained 4, yes I said FOUR, different kinds of Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters.

The flavors were Honey Roasted Peanuts, Nut Lovers, Roasted Almonds and Roasted Cashews. My husband and I had just been talking about wanting a snack…so, how lucky were we?? We tore into them! LOL

So far we have tried 3 of the flavors. *shameful look* :oP I prefer the Honey Roasted Peanuts and I think Robby’s favorite was the Roasted Cashews. I like the sweet and salty taste of honey and peanuts. It is soooo addictive! All you need is a big glass of milk to wash it down…

Nature Valley Granola Nut Clusters are 100% natural. It’s a perfect snack for those on the go or at home. They’re tasty and the bite-sized pieces insure no mess!

Thank you My Blog Spark for letting me try this wonderful snack. It’s definitely going to be something we will look for in the grocery store!

I Wanna Be A Series: Veterinarian E-book Review

"Mommy, what am I going to be when I grow up?"

This is a question my daughter has asked me numerous times. Every time my answer is the same - "Whatever you want to be, honey."

When I was growing up, I know I run the gamut of career choices. Lawyer, actress, doctor, author, mommy, and more! My parents always allowed me to dream of the wondrous possibilities and I want to let my children know they are allowed to do the same.

That's one of the things I love about the upcoming I Wanna Be Series available at The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine. These in depth e-books allow your child to learn while dreaming of the possibilities of their future.

I recently was privileged to preview a copy of I Wanna Be A Veterinarian. In this e-book, your child can read a first hand account of what it's like to be a veterinarian. Children will love reading about the different types of animals that can be cared for, the areas a veterinarian travels to, and what your child needs to do to one day become a veterinarian. Parents will also learn along side their child. Yes, it's that amazing!

Jam-packed with photos, many activities and worksheets that include word search, coloring page, memory verses and copywork - this e-book is acceptable for any age. Not only will you child learn so much from this informational e-book, but he will also be allowed to dream of another amazing career.
