It's National Dairy Month...Let's Have a Giveaway!

Remember this sneak peak from my Facebook page?
What?
You don't?

Well you really should go like me on Facebook!  You will have you chance though.

What I want to tell you is that June is National Dairy Month.

Gosh I love, love, love dairy.
I think if I was lactose intolerant I would just eat it anyway & suffer.
That's how much I love dairy.

I especially love yogurt and my latest obsession is Greek Yogurt.

Greek yogurt is made with milk and an active yogurt culture. Actually, it takes about four gallons of milk to make a gallon of Greek yogurt. Like all yogurt, it is a good source of calcium. Before its packaged, Greek yogurt is strained to remove some of the excess whey, resulting in a creamier, thicker, more satisfying yogurt.  Although brands vary, compared to regular non-fat yogurt, Greek yogurt typically has twice as much protein, less sugar, and less lactose.



DID YOU KNOW….that Greek yogurt is….

Guest Post: Why You Should Send Your Child to Preschool

I am a strong advocate of preschool. 
Not only for the education value your child gets but for the sanity break you get!

Here is a great guest post as to what great benefits preschool has!




Every parent has the option of sending their child to preschool or to wait until kindergarten starts to send their child to school. Sending your young child to toddler school in Irvine is a good idea for many reasons. If you are at the point where you need to make the decision, consider the following things before you keep your child at home.


The Benefits of Preschool
Preschool is a great way to prepare your child for school so that they will not be left behind in the rush of kindergarten or elementary school. First, it gets them ready socially. It is a difficult adjustment for small children to be away from their parents all day. It is also difficult to spend the day with a teacher and other classmates. Preschool will get your child ready for this so they are calm and composed on the first day of ki…

Guest Post: Vital Backpacking Equipment to Have

This is a special guest post.
As my readers know...I do camp.  You know in a RV with a bathroom and a/c.
It's just how I roll.

As for backpacking, well I have big dreams of backpacking through Europe but then I realize I am middle aged and over weight so that dream was shot to crap immediately.

However I have three strong boys ranging from 19 down to six.

So this post is for them, well, you too of course.

Without further adieu:




Backpacking is one of the great American pastimes. One of the reasons that backpacking is so popular among sports enthusiasts is because the United States has such wild, unexplored and remote areas. To the person seeking adventure, there is a plethora of it to be found in the American wild. Before you set out to find adventure, however, you will need a few things to get started. Although even the most strenuous hikes are achievable, the wilderness can prove dangerous and challenging without the proper equipment. This article will discuss what you will need to get…

Yummy in my Tummy

For those of you who have been reading both of my blogs, you probably know Cheeks has ADHD.  So along with some medicine I am in the process of changing not just his but all of the family's diets.  Much to their chagrin but buck up family, it's good for you.

Recently I had the chance to try some Yummy Health products.



I was excited because these are good for you foods that taste good.  What more could a mom want?  Well a non picky eater for one thing, which I have the ultimate picky eater.

Needless to say he wouldn't try the Yummy Chocolate Bar or the Yummy Snack Chips.

Fine.
Suit yourself.

I'll try them.

I tried the Snack Chips first.  I did sneak them into Cheeks lunch bag for a snack.  He brought them home opened with just two eaten.  I can't say I blame him on that.  The snack chips were not my favorite.  They are 90% cheese, which is awesome.  It's just both Cheeks and I felt they were really powerful flavor. 

I like my cheese, as does my 6yo, but these snack chi…

Guest Post: The Key Elements of Feng Shui

Are you struggling to find peace and happiness in your life? The ancient practice of feng shui can help you find the balance necessary to find happiness and reach even your largest goals. How can you
practice feng shui? There are many books on Feng Shui available that go into great detail explaining the processes of implementing the elements of feng shui. Before you can learn how to implement them, you must understand the five key elements that Feng Shui divides the world into.


Wood
Wood is the first element of feng shui and it is thought to harness the power of creativity. Wood
represents birth, growth, strength, flexibility, and intuition. Like all the other elements, the key is to find a balance in the amount of wood present in your life. Too much can make you feel overwhelmed, stubborn, and inflexible; while too little can create a lack of creativity, depression, or stagnancy. The shapes, colors, and textures of trees, flowers, and plants can bring more wood into your life.
