They're That Good! @Guylian_Chocs #Giveaway

I love chocolate... Yes, I surely DO!
I would eat it pretty much all the time, but I know better...
I wish I was a fan of dark chocolate, as it is healthier for you...
But, I just can not do it... Something about it, just doesn't work for me...

That was until I tried the Guylian Dark Chocolate!
Wow.  They are that good!  How good is that?  So good that I am in love with their dark chocolate.
So good that the boys loved their dark chocolate.  So good that I normally pawn off the dark chocolate to Broxton or Marc (for me to eat more of the other, but this time, I was trying to decide how to limit what I would share!)

I was sent a generous amount of these beautiful creations, Guylian Chocolate...
Yes, I say beautiful creations, since it can not simply be called Chocolate.
It is Belgian Chocolate that is a piece of art as well.  Belgian Truffles!

I was surprised as to how pretty each piece was.  Then, the boys saw the chocolate!  We sampled, we tried to be patient, but it was so go…

The End of Molasses Classes - Book review

Image
Have you heard of Ron Clark?
I heard of him a couple years ago...
I believe it was Oprah who brought him to the surface for all of us...   Well, I know it was Oprah for me...

Maybe I paid more attention because it took place in Atlanta... Maybe it was because I remember wishing that school was more interesting... Either way, when I heard that there was a book titled, The End of Molasses Classes, by Ron Clark...
I knew I wanted to read it...
It was full of 101 idea's - "Extraordinary Solutions for Parents and Teachers."

I never gave it much thought, but he was able to summarize in two words what many of us can write about in paragraphs... MOLASSES CLASSES.
You know what I am talking about, unless you were lucky enough to have a teacher (or if you were really lucky, teacherS) like Ron Clark.  Molasses Classes... they went SO SLOW... Slow as Molasses!
After reading this book, I tell you know... I would LOVE to go back to school...  Yes, even middle and high ... If I knew…

Emerald Breakfast on the Go - Oatmeal Blends #Giveaway

Image
Now that we are all back in the routine of school and work and not all the holidays, it is time to regain focus on time management and on being healthy!
No, I did not make any resolutions this year, I never do...
But, I want to try and be healthier....

I had the chance to review the Breakfast on the Go - Oatmeal Blends.
I was excited to try them, as I loved the Nut and Granola ones...
I am a fan of oatmeal, but I have to be in the mood...
With these.... you are always in for a quick little pack!  Be it for a breakfast on the go or a pick me up snack during the day...

We were sent all three flavors:
Maple and Brown Sugar, Apples and Cinnamon, and Blueberries and Creme...
All three were delicious... although I was surprised to like the Maple and Brown Sugar the least.
I love that flavor of Maple and Brown Sugar for the oatmeal, so I was surprised that it wasn't my favorite out of these packs!!!!

I had the boys try it and they were quick to pick out the goodies that were mixed in an…

"Nothing is More Dangerous Than the Truth" Whistleblower DVD Review

Image
I was trying to think of a movie to watch the other night...
Broxton was playing in his room, Marc was at work and I really just felt like watching a movie.
I then remembered that I had The Whistleblower on DVD for review.

I wasn't really sure if it was something I was going to like or not...
I wasn't familiar with the names in the cast.... but, their tag line "Nothing is more dangerous than the truth" had really grabbed my attention, that was why I wanted to review it....

So, I put it in and was surprised when it was in a foreign country and had subtitles...
I wasn't sure if I was in the mood for that kind of movie...  But, I figured I could at least try....
The next thing you know, it is in the USA for a bit and then they are speaking English... at the UN in Bosnia.
I decided to put the subtitles on (even for the English speaking scenes, as they spoke low at times and with loud toys, I did not want to miss anything.)

The Whistleblower is based on true events..
It…
