MY THOUGHTS

 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this product! If you are wanting a Vitamix, I would consider checking out the Ninja Ultima High-Speed Blender with Dual-Stage Technology first!

I have had so much fun making whole fruit and vegetable juices, almond butter, soup, and even baby food! Everything I have made has turned out amazing! If you think making homemade peanut butter isn’t good because the texture is too gritty, well try making it in the Ninja Ultima! My almond butter is super smooth and tastes amazing!

Another thing I like is that clean up is a synch! All you do is rinse out the blender, add a cup of water and a tsp. of dish soap and blend for about 10 seconds. Re-rinse the blender and parts and you’re done! It’s so easy!

 

If you are interested in purchasing a Ninja Ultima High-Speed Blender with Dual-Stage Technology, you can because right now at Walmart for $259.99 + FREE Shipping!!! That’s way cheaper than you would pay for a Vitamix!

Tired of digging for the buckle when strapping your kiddos into their carseats? You are going to LOVE the Carseat Thingy. It attaches around the buckle and keeps it from hiding under your kiddos rear-ends.

 

I was given the opportunity to test one out and I love it.

 

image

 

Here you can see that it fits snuggly around the buckle, so it’s not going to come off. However, the buckle is still easy to move enough to get the carseat buckled with ease. I’m very pleased with this product and definitely recommend it!

 

Right now you can purchase the Carseat Thingy too for just $5.95 + FREE shipping on all orders! If you’re heading to a baby shower or thinking about Christmas shopping, grab a few. You’ll be glad you did!  Smile

Have you tried the NEW Super Crunch Chicken Strips at Sonic yet? I tried them today for the first time and they are really good! They are exactly like the name, SUPER CRUNCHY!

 

Super Crunch Chicken Strips are all white-meat chicken strips double-breaded to add an extra crispy crunch to the already popular juicy chicken strips, providing even more options and value for SONIC customers.

Customers can order Super Crunch Chicken Strips any time of the day in three-piece or five-piece sizes. To keep things interesting, we recommend trying them with one of SONIC’s sauces, like Buttermilk Ranch, Honey Mustard or Hickory BBQ.

I was very impressed with these chicken strips. The chicken is juicy and the breading packs a lot of flavor without being greasy. Take your kiddos to SONIC and try out this yummy treat. You won’t be disappointed!

Dots On Tots Review: Organic Ear Protection Baby & Toddler Hats!

by at September 3, 2013 in My Tips, Product Reviews

Dots on Tots a baby and toddler headwear company that specializes in baby and toddler hats made from 100% all-natural, certified organic cotton. Dots on Tots was created by a mother of two and is based on the idea that newborn skin is often very sensitive and needs to be protected.

 

In addition, it focuses on the importance of choosing the right clothing to avoid allergic reactions. The innovative hat design features flaps that serve to protect infants and toddlers from cold weather, wind, and ear, nose and throat infections. The brand also offers special ear protection hats that feature an added benefit of 50% noise-reduction ear inserts, shielding infants and toddlers’ delicate ears from loud sounds. The collection boasts their hats with ear flaps in organic cotton, organic cotton fleece and merino wool, and also includes organic knotted hats, organic reversible sun hats and special ear protection hats in organic cotton.

 

image

 

My Review: what I really like about the infant hats is that it covers their ears. This is PERFECT for winter time, especially since babies ears are so sensitive to that cold breeze.

 

This hat pictured above called “Reversible Sun Hat” is perfect for play dates at the park, or anytime you’re little one is in the sun. I love that it covers my daughter’s ears and protects her head from the sun. Also, having it tie underneath insures that the hat won’t fall off.

 

Make sure you check out their site: www.dotsontots.com for more details. They are running a sale right now too.

September is Whole Grains Month and what better way than to celebrate with the innovator of all-natural popcorn, Popcorn, Indiana! 

 

Considered nutritionally superior to refined grains because they are rich in dietary fiber, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals, whole grains have been shown in studies to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, obesity and diabetes. Popcorn, Indiana offers delicious whole grain snacks approved by the Whole Grains Council to help meet the 44 gram a day suggestion and enjoy while staying happy and healthy.

 

If you need an excuse to snack, don’t forget that October is National Popcorn Poppin’ Month!

 

image

 

We are very big popcorn lovers in our house! Since my little love is on a gluten free diet it’s sometimes hard to find special treats for her that don’t cost too much. When I think of the best kettle corn, I think of the booth at the farmers market. In comparison I would rank Popcorn, Indiana right up at the top! It tastes just like the kettle corn at the farmers market, but I can buy it at the grocery store at my convenience.

 

Next time your out grocery shopping, make sure Popcorn Indiana is on your list, you won’t be sorry! Smile

image

 

Meet The Dooples by Dr. Lynn Hunter is about a group of writing implementations who come to life in a collection of books and a musical animation that motivate children to think, learn and communicate.

The Dooples were created to help facilitate elementary-school aged kids everywhere with learning new concepts, using “everyday tools” they are very familiar with.

 

image

 

We were given the privilege of reviewing this book and found it to be very fun. My little love was SO EXCITED to read a new book. I LOVE the colorful pictures and the “comic book” type look.

 

The story line is about a how these writing implements come to life to learn, write, and draw in the night. After reading the book my little love asked if she could look at the book herself. She was deciding which characters were her favorite Smile

If you are interested in purchasing this book for your kiddos head over to Amazon. You can also meet The Dooples on YouTube. I am so glad we have this book in our collection, it’s a book that both of us really liked and will continue to read for years to come.
