Kushies Kritter - Review

B received a "kushies kritter" for review the other day.
Let me just tell you, my mom and I were talking about how cute he is!
B now has a new buddy named Max Monkey.

One of the main things I love about Max is that he even comes with a mesh bag for when he needs to go for a spin cycle and get clean!
I was actually telling my mom the other day that the one thing I did NOT like about baby toys were the fact that most say "hand wash."
(I don't even hand wash MY CLOTHES that say that, where would I find the time to hand wash all of B's toys?!)
I wish ALL toys came with their own bag and made at least ONE step easier! :)

The kritter is adorable and snuggly!
I was telling my mom how soft he was and she started in on how cute the colors were!
It was like we were trying to sell the other on it!
B didn't need any help!
He grabbed him and of course, decided to chew on him a bit.

I wanted to get a picture of him snuggled up with him, but come on... I KNOW that would wake him up and I was not feeling like being the bad mommy to wake the sweet baby! =)

The only thing I did not like about the kushies kritter was the fact that I misread the description!
Leave it to me...
I thought it was a toy/pillow/blanket in one!
Come on, Noelle, READ the description!

Here is what their website says about Max...

A best friend to talk to, a pillow to sleep on, a blankie to snuggle with...
Your little one will adore our award-winning Kushies Kritters!

Aloha Friday # 6ish...

Guess what?!
It is Friday... We know what that means...
Time to answer my question, post your own, head over and visit Kailani

As Kailani puts it...
" In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response."

Also, CONGRATS to Kailani and her new bundle of joy!

My question of the week:

Where are you from?

I am a Georgia girl, through and through..
I have never lived anywhere besides Georgia..
And I bleed RED AND BLACK..


Thankful Thursday 1

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

Okay, my friend Melissa over at Frugal Creativity had this post...
and she got it from Truth 4 the Journey.
I wanted to join in...

Thankful Thursday.
You list 5 things you are thankful for, add the button, link up..

1. I am THANKFUL for my husband. He is a great man and a wonderful husband and daddy. The fact that he is also our hero doesn't hurt either! (He is currently in Afghanistan)
2. I am THANKFUL for my son. I never knew a love like this! Being a mommy is the greatest thing in the world!
3. I am THANKFUL for my family and friends! I know that although I do not see some as much as I would like, I can always count on them if I ever need anything!
4. I am THANKFUL for my bloggy friends, Melissa and Blueviolet. Melissa has been a GREAT help with setting up this blog. She has great posts and is very uplifting. Blueviolet has to be a comedian in hiding 0r something, do not know her real name, but her posts are HILARIOUS!
5. I am THANKFUL for the Internet. Without it, I would not be able to talk to my husband! (and I think I would be pretty bored, too!)


POM is at it again...

Kristen over at POM Wonderful sent me their Iced Coffee..
No, it does not taste like Pomegranate!
It comes in 3 flavors:
Chocolate, Vanilla and Cafe Au Lait

I thought for sure that I would really like the chocolate the best...
and I have to say, I was quite surprised that I liked the Cafe Au Lait the most!

There was something about the Chocolate, it was not as chocolaty as I thought it should be? I am still trying to decide what it was about it that didn't reach my expectations.
I will say this though, I really liked it and would sure enough drink it again.
I just have not seen any around here to purchase...

From their site

Chock-full of caffeine, POMx Iced Coffee is one buzzy beverage. And with a daily dose of POMx – The Antioxidant Super Extract – it’s also one of the healthiest. In fact, when it comes to antioxidant power, nothing comes close to POMx. Learn more about POMx.

While POMx Iced Coffee is brought to you by the pioneering people behind POM Juice, there’s something you should know: our coffee tastes absolutely, positively nothing like pomegranates. That would just be weird.
You can find POMx Iced Coffee in the refrigerated section of the produce department of your local supermarket in convenient 10.5oz (310 ml) bottles.
Let me know if you find it at a store near you... YUMMY!

Just a little rant...

So, I go to the gas station yesterday...
I park and I am getting B out of the car.

This other car HAULS... in the parking lot...
Parks (Not in a parking spot, just makes one for himself)
and follows me in.

I go to the register and I am paying...
How about he walks up to the register and then just leans on the counter..
(Side note, I HATE people in my space... Give me an arms length if I do not know you... PLEASE!)
Well, he is soclosetome...
I had to move my purse, IN FRONT OF ME to keep it from rubbing on him.

I paid and left... he paid and before I had B fastened in the car, he was flooring it out of the parking lot..

I am not sure, but I really do not think that there was anything he needed THAT bad...
But maybe so...
Either way, it really worked my nerves!

Other than that...
:) Have a great day!


Yoplait Kids Yogurt - Review and Giveaway

Okay, the kids come home from school and immediately they want a snack...
Instead of giving them a bag of chips or cookies, why not give them yogurt?

I recently had the chance to review the Yoplait yogurt.
I decided to go with the Yoplait TRIX...
I mean, come on...
Trix is for kids! Right?
I selected the Watermelon Burst and Strawberry Punch combo.
Let me just tell you, the colors when you open the pack go ahead and tell you this is a YUMMY treat!
I had my 9 year old cousin, LK come over to try it...
Not really sure if a "kid" would really enjoy the yogurt.
I gave her both of them...
She was really enjoying the Watermelon Burst flavor.
She said that the Strawberry Punch just did not really do anything for her. ( I later found out that she isn't a big strawberry fan to begin with.)
I really enjoyed the Strawberry Punch flavor, so if I were to get this flavor combo next time, we would not have to worry about who took the last one! :)

Yoplait Yogurt has Vitamin D in ever single serving!
Don't tell LK, but it is actually a snack that is good FOR YOU!

Would you like to win a prize pack?

MyBlogSpark has given me 2 prize packs to give away to 2 lucky readers!

Prize Pack contains:
coupon for a Yoplait Kids yogurt
a travel cooler (to take your yogurt on-the-go),
a fun spoon that changes colors in warm water,
a reusable place mat with games to keep the kids happy while snacking,
and a fuzzy tangle puzzle for some after-snack fun.

How to enter:

Go to yoplait and tell me what flavor TRIX you would like to try...
Pretty simple!
Leave me your email address in the comment!
Contest will end on November 1st!

*This coupon offer for a free six pack of Yoplait Kids yogurt is not valid in some states, including Idaho, Louisiana, Nevada, New Jersey, North Dakota and Tennessee.
