30 Days of Healthy Tips: Tip 27 #getskinnybook
2012-05-11 15:25:00
Welcome to a month of healthy daily tips to kick-start your road to summer and a healthful lifestyle:   Strength training not only helps decrease body fat, it also helps tone muscle tissue. A 150-lb person needs to run 3 miles to burn the amount of calories in a small McDonald?s French Fries (230 calories and 11 grams of fat). For quick weight loss, try doing a circuit-training routine. You?ll burn more calories than with other types of exercise routines. Wanting to eat healthy isn?t good enough. Spend time creating measurable objectives to help you eat better like learning a new recipe. Nutrition labels are great for helping you to lose weight because they provide you with valuable information, such as serving sizes and calories per serving. The first item listed on a nutrition label is the recommended serving size and total number of servings per container. By multiplying the number of servings per container by the calories per serving, it gives you the total number of calori...

Doodle Roll
2012-05-09 07:51:00
This is a great idea.  My kids are always stealing my printer paper to draw on. Once they got thier hands on doodle roll – they were all over the floor – rolling and drawing and ripping and tearing! It made a fun mess.  I am not sure why paper on a continuous roll is so much better than sheets of paper out of a pack – but apparently it is too fun! This is an affordable toy and will keep them entertained for hours.  Grab a few! I am putting this in my summer fun guide – Inside and outside fun – and they seem easy to transport to take with you too.  The website also has some great ideas and inspiration.   About The Doodle Roll ® is the most versatile & portable arts & crafts activity kit! This all-in-one kit contains a roll of paper and crayons in a compact package, perfect for creative fun on the go anytime, anywhere!

Welch?s Naturals ? a new jelly!
2012-04-04 07:01:00
WhenI heard that Welch’s was launching a new natural line of jelly, I was very stoked.  We eat a lot – and I mean a lot – of PB& J in our house.  And I always try and buy the lower sugar or organic variety.  So with the natural brand I thought it fit right into our lifestyle. I have one kid who likes grape and one who like strawberry – so we really put this to the test with success.  My kids are young – so we don’t stray too far from the PB&J or jelly on crackers…..but we do get a little crazy and do cream cheese and jelly on bagels every now and then!  I was also very surprised to find out there is a National PB&J day.  We gobble up a lot of this and the new line is very tasty.  So my call out to my readers is make every day a PB&J day and tell me your favorite combo! About the new Natural Line: Available in Grape, Strawberry and Raspberry…. No high fructose corn syrup No preservatives Delicious, bold fruit taste Try o...

So what a wonderful idea our friends at Hush Puppies have come up with……slippers that are flip flops!  Ta Da!  I love these because if I am running late in the AM with the kiddos – no one is going to look at me like “ugh – you have your slippers on!”  I will just blend in and look like I have some super cute flip flops.  The are very squishy and comfy – just like a slipper.  But your foot covers that part so they just look like flip flops.  They are stylish and they have a nice rubber sole – so no worries if you step in a small puddle or something.  Durable, fashionable, versatile and comfy – ta da!

Is it Possible to Stay Healthy Without Even Trying?
2012-04-02 07:55:00
Staying healthy without trying sounds enticing, but is it possible? The truth is yes, so long as you are willing and able to consume a well-balanced diet on a regular basis. The cornerstone of a well-balanced diet is its ability to help you maintain a healthy weight and prevent disease. To do this, you must reduce your caloric intake to only what your body can expend throughout the day. Otherwise, the additional calories will be extremely harmful to your body over time. You must also consume foods that offer a wide variety of nutrients and seek out the advice of your doctor to make sure your food choices will not negatively interact with any medications that may have been prescribed.       A well-balanced should also include: Lean meats such as ground turkey, skinless chicken, or fish because they contain less saturated fat and cholesterol than other types of animal meats and will help you build firm, capable muscles. Fiber-rich whole grains for the Vitamin Bs and min...

Hip Fusion Designs Review & Giveaway
2012-04-01 07:51:00
I really liked this jewelry artist the first time I saw her website.  Who doesn’t want to be hip?  Her site is easy to navigate and you can find so many things there.  There are earrings and necklaces in several categories. You can shop ready made or if you want a personalized piece – she can customize a mother’s necklace, or other item just for you.  You can also shop by theme. I chose the All My Children disk tag necklace. I already have a mother’s necklace. But I love that this one is not silver and something about the style really spoke to me. When it arrived, I was not disappointed.  Sometimes pictures online and the really thing don’t look exactly like what you are expecting. But this one was spot on.  I love that it is versatile and dainty with a splash of oomph with the crystals.   There are also very simple necklaces and funky items on the site too. And I want them all!  I am putting Hip Fusion in my Mother ’s Day Gift guide.  She eve...

This is a pretty cute little story that is very family friendly.  I love that it is based on a true story. I think that fact alone now has my daughter thinking that we can do something cool like this – hmmm. The storyline is a typical facing adversity, dreaming big, and pulling together of a community. However, I love the twist of the animals – and so did our kids. So grab a copy and pop some popcorn and have a family movie night – this is the perfect flick for that!  There are also some themes and deeper conversations that this film can spark if you have older kids – a bout courage, life, scripture and morals.

Dawgs Review & Giveaway (US & Canada)

As you might be able to tell from the title of my blog – I love to shop.  And what would life be without shoe shopping.  They always fit, they make you feel good and there are endless possibilities!  So I was more than happy to be able to review Dawgs shoes.  I had a hard time choosing as they have quite a variety of comfortable looking shoes.  I settled on something called a crossover.  Technically, I think it is a golf shoe – but can be worn as an everyday sneaker.  They come in a few sporty colors and they just looked like they would be comfy.  The shoes actually run true to your shoe size – and are available in whole (not half) sizes.  I actually thought they might wear more like a running shoe – which I wear a larger size.  So when you are shopping for your shoe – my advice would be to stick to your shoe size and use their more than accurate shoe size picker.  It will tell you what size based on a simple tape measurement.
