A Day before Kindergarten

My little bug is heading off to Kindergarten in just a couple weeks. In order to get her ready, we spent a day buying a few new outfits, getting a haircut and ending with a special lunch at a local tea house . . .

Although I have mixed emotions about sending her off into the big wide world of public school . . . and unknown apprehension as to what my schedule will look like in the fall . . . she is so absolutely thrilled! It's fun to watch her anticipation grow and share in these special milestone memories. (Thanks Dave and Terri for thinking of us . . . we appreciate your sweet card and gift that made this day possible.)

A Fun New Snack Giveaway

I was recently given the opportunity to try and review a new product from Betty Crocker. They're called cereal treats and they are yummy!!

Travis loved the Golden Grahms flavor but for me, it was all about the Lucky Charms. As one of my favorite childhood cereals, I was excited to see the box in with the gift pack. With my current healthy eating plan, I figured there was no way I could eat this . . . although it does contain sugar and would only be a once in a while treat, it has only 100 calories!! (Way less than a serving of the cereal itself in a bowl with milk) I was also impressed that each of the boxes has two box tops . . . a great help to your kiddo's school.

I don't think I need to even mention how much Haley loved it . . . although I should post a picture of her excitement when she saw the box! Hannah is at grandma's so it was a perfect time to sample a gluten-filled treat!

Just for trying this new product and posting a review, I am able to give away one free gift pack to a blog reader who enters their name in the comment box . . . I'll contact you by email to get your mailing information and get your prize on it's way!! The prize pack contains two boxes of cereal bars, a great quality shoulder bag, a cute tube of colored pencils and a locker white board.

I can't wait to give this away . . . enter today!!
