So, we had the coolest thing happen to us the other day... 
We were brought breakfast!  
I have to admit, it was pretty neat...  I was contacted about doing a review for a new (to me) yoghurt...  Of course, I said yes!
Have you heard of Noosa Yoghurt?

The kicker?  They were going to deliver it to me...
I was all about it.. Being served breakfast!
So, we established a day and time....
Then, the morning of, I was super excited...
Of course, it was raining... so not the best start to the day...
But then - this arrived:




The girl that brought my breakfast was super sweet and I felt really bad that she had to drive in the rain... I tell you, people are not the best drivers when it comes to rain in Atlanta.. But then, I saw her car...  and it just looked like fun!!!


Of course, having breakfast brought to us...
I was excited to see what all was in the bag!!!



We had several of the Noosa Honey Yoghurt...   with packs of granola...
There was also strawberry rhubarb yoghurt.  Finally, it included organic o
range juice and organic coffee creamer...

I must admit, I was not eager to try the strawberry rhubarb, nor the honey... 

I would not have picked these flavors at the store... 
I was excited about the strawberry, but was totally unsure about the rhubarb!
I figured I would try the honey and granola for that mornings breakfast...
OH- My- Goodness!!!
It was amazing!!!
It was so thick and creamy.  Full flavored!  It was surprisingly full of flavor and I finished my breakfast full and satisfied!    After the shocker of this one, I knew I wanted to try the strawberry rhubarb for an afternoon snack!!!
It was just as great as the honey!!!
I was so excited that I was sent these to try, as I was amazed...
Broxton has also been enjoying them and I am happy knowing it is a better snack alternative versus chips!!!



I do know that I want to try the peach flavor!!!
As much as I love peaches, I know that this will be great...
I loved how the yoghurts mixed with fruit have just enough of the fruit puree to give it a great flavor without being over powering!!!! 

Check out Noosa, you are sure to love it!!!

Make sure to follow Noosa on facebook and twitter.

Poison Ivy Relief Pads - No Mess!!!!

When we bought our house, there was all sorts of new discoveries in our yard...
Living in an apartment all of my adult life and NOT being a fan of the outdoors, I was not sure what anything was... I even sent text messages to friends asking if things were flowers, weeds or herbs!!!  I tell ya, outdoorsy, I am not!!!
I went to pulling plants that I could (although I was not going too deep as I was worried about snakes!)
Anyways, I went to pulling weeds and all of a sudden, I started getting texts telling me to be careful of Poison Ivy!!! I had not even thought of that... but I was wearing gloves (I am not a fan of dirt AT ALL.) 
Luckily, I was in the clear, I did not have any issues... 
But, a friend of mine?  Well, when I dropped Broxton off for Sunday School one day, I noticed she had a big bandage... Yep... Poison Ivy!!!  If only I had known about Cortizone 10 Poison Ivy Relief Pads!  I wish I had known then, as I surely would have shared...
Having a son, I know I need to be prepared... So, we are now!!!
I think the thing that has impressed me the most about the relief patches is the "snapplicator!"
You just snap it open and apply.. No medicine getting on you, except where you want it to go!!!

Shark Week is Over, but the Enjoyment Doesn't Have to Be!!!!

Several of my friends are really into the whole "Shark Week" and their facebook feed was full of posts about it...  We, on the other hand, have never really gotten into it...  I know... that is a shock to some of you... but hey, I am not saying we never will... We just have not done so ... YET.

We had the chance to review the Sharkopedia book from Discovery Channel and I tell you what.
They were NOT joking when they said it was full of over 400 pictures.
(No, I did not go through and count, but lets be real... There are several pictures on each 2 page spread!) 

I will go ahead and tell you now...
I know  knew nothing about sharks, except to stay far far FAR away from them...
Well, I still know to stay really far away, but now I know all of the reasons WHY!!!!
Just in the first couple of pages, I learned that sharks don't have bones in their body.  
(Kinda creepy, but yep... it allows them to twist their body into smaller spaces.  SCARY!)
Also, they have rows of teeth... so, when they lose a tooth, a new one moves on up from a back row!  
(Gross... but really cool to know that!)This book is really neat in that young people can enjoy the pictures and point at what they want read to them... While older people can flip through and learn really cool facts.
You do not have to read this book like traditional books, front to back, but you can flip and read about whatever shark you want to learn about.
The pages even have little side "blurbs" to help make it interesting and keep things going.
For instance, on one page, it has the outline of an open book... it then says "word" and has a word and definition on there to help explain what you are reading.

We have enjoyed reading this and I can tell that Broxton is really curious about learning more about the sharks.   I think that this will also be a great book to have when the boys come to visit as well!!!!
If you are a shark fan, or are eager to learn more about them... 
Sharkopedia is the book to quench that thirst of knowledge!
