Review: Skinny Pop Popcorn

I love love love love popcorn as does everyone else in my family. I think it is a really great quick healthy snack. I am over weight and work hard on trying to keep some weight off and am always looking for something to snack on that it not fating. This is when I found popcorn is really not fating. I was searching around the internet one night and came across Skinny Pop and started to wonder.

So I sent them and email ans asked if I could review their product on my blog and they agreed. They said yes, so I watched the mail thinking I was only going to get maybe a bag or two. Boy oh boy, I ended up with about 12 bag, a whole box. My kids, my husband, and I had a nice little movie night with all the great popcorn. My husband said that is almost tasted just like what you get at the movie but not with all the butter. It is when you start adding all these other things that will make the popcorn fating.

1) Love how it doesn't have the stale, kind of Styrofoam texture that most pre-popped and bagged popcorn have. It tasted light and crunchy, and was surprisingly very fresh.
2) It’s very simple – no fake cheese powder here. Just three ingredients: sunflower oil, corn, salt. Tasty and not loaded with preservatives. Two thumbs up.
135 calories for lots of crunching'!
3) The best part was, I could have a gigantic bowl for only 135 calories. With me, volume is the key to satisfaction, and a nice big bowl was the perfect snack for studying that didn't deplete my calorie balance for the day.
Looking for SkinnyPop?
One way to make it convenient for yourself is to ask the manager at your preferred grocery store to start carrying it. They are usually very happy to take suggestions from customers on new product lines.

Review & Giveaway: Pocket Nanny

I love my pocket nanny. Some might look at me like I am crazy when I carry it around with me at the house and they come over. They ask what it is and I tell them about it. The first question is "Why do you need something to remind of that stuff, that is your child you should just know?" I tell them it is simple and start off telling them about all the pocket nanny has to offer and how a ease it puts knowing that I will always know what is is going on with my child. I use it of my toddler. I just changed things around a little bit because he still takes naps and we just got doing the potty training thing but some times I still have to remind him to go to the bathroom. With my pocket nanny I can keep track of every thing because he likes to hold it and I know that is not good for him.

This item is an award winning baby care timer that is a lifesaver for new parents when it comes to easy communication and reminders!

This baby care timer is not intended to set a schedule for baby, it is simply a parent’s helping hand in remembering times.

Review: My Baby's Heartbeat Bear

Being a mom of a preemie and being pretty much robbed of the last trimester I don't have any cool ultrasounds to show. AJ was born at 34 weeks due to preeclampsia so I never had anything to show him as he has grown up now about to be 6 next week. He asked all the time about it because I have some of his brother. I never had the chance to have anything like a Heartbeat Bear. I think it would have been really neat so when I got the chance to review I was over joyed at the chance and to make it that much better. My brother-in-law and his wife found out they was having a baby and it was the perfect time because we really don't think she will make it the whole 9 months. I gave them the heartbeat bear and they where joyed. The very next time they we went to the doctor they recorded the baby's heart bear. Then put the little red heart in the back of the bear. It sounds so cool, I can't wait till my niece gets here and gets to hear own heart beat while laying in her bed.

Product Description

The Blue Bear kit includes an adorable blue teddy bear, a special heartshaped recorder to capture the sound of your baby's heartbeat, and a protective vinyl storage bag. The bear is a very soft material with poly fiber stuffing, and a velcro back closure to seal your bear shut after you place your baby's recorded heartbeat in the bear. "Baby Blue" is approximately 16 inches tall.

My Baby's Heartbeat Bear
Our kits have everything you need to create your personalized Heartbeat Bear. The kit includes an adorable stuffed animal, recording device, and protective vinyl storage bag. Heartbeat animal kits make great gifts for the grandparents-to-be, the new baby's siblings, or special family members who are far away. The My Baby's Heartbeat Bear Kits also make fantastic baby shower gifts! We can mail the kits directly to the mother-to-be, gift wrapped with a personalized card from you.

In 2009 during my second year working as a private contractor at an OB/GYN office in Maryland, I discovered the amazing bears that record a baby’s heartbeat – while still inside the mother’s belly!
I graduated in 2000 from a community college with an associate’s degree in Diagnostic Medical Sonography. Six months later in early 2001, I became a Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer specializing in OB/GYN. I had zero experience when I started, but I had a determined spirit and a big heart for the trade. With a lifelong love for children and an innate intrigue for anatomy, I knew this was the perfect field for me.
Two years and about a thousand belly scans later, I gave birth to twins – a beautiful boy and girl that both weighed just under 7 pounds. Not something you hear of too often in a multiple delivery!
Now back to the heartbeat bears. I was working as a private contractor after 8 years working in a hospital. I decided to go the contractor route so I could spend more time with my children and focus on my dream – providing expecting mothers with the ultrasound experience I thought they deserved. And part of that included creating a memory that would last a lifetime – one that each mother could hold near and dear to her heart – her baby’s heartbeat.
I started offering the bears to my patients and they loved them. Not only for themselves, but for the grandparents–to-be and other family members. Next I was recording the soon-to-be brother or sister telling the baby how much they couldn’t wait to meet and play with them. I knew these were very special bears.  
It's been almost 2 years since I started offering the heartbeat bears and I'll always celebrate the joy they bring to my patients. I love what I do, the people that I've met, and that I have been blessed to find my passion in life at such a young age.
I hope that My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear can bring you as much happiness as it’s brought me and my family.

Review & Giveaway: KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn

I love popcorn! My kids love popcorn!  Seriously, who doesn't?  Is there anyone on Earth that can walk into a movie theater and NOT get a bucket of popcorn? I know as soon as I smell the fresh popcorn and butter, I am ready for a large bucket.  What about flavored popcorn?  If popcorn has cheese on it -- I am SO there. My husband on the other hand loves Caramel. 

I recently has the extreme pleasure of sampling KuKuRuZa Gourmet Popcorn!  OH MY GOSH!  This is some of the very best popcorn I've ever tasted. Well the flavors I like but as for all the other no need to worry my kids took very good care of them. They where more then happen to help mommy eat her popcorn. It made it even better for them that is was sweet so they ate it quicker then I could.  The flavors combos are unexpected but utterly delicious!

The flavors I was sent for this review was: 

Chicago Style

We call it the "KuKuRuZa" and it's the house favorite! (In the shop, our slang terminology is the "RuZa.") Everyone′s favorite blend of sweet and savory is a snack you won′t be able to put down. The flavor combination is highly addictive. If you′ve never tried this combination, you don´t know what you′re missing.

Rainbow Fruit

An exciting assortment of complimentary arranged fruit flavors made with natural fruit extracts for a burst of real fruit flavor. A colorful and flavorful taste for adults and a big hit with children.

Hawaiian Salted Caramel

This beautiful maroon sea salt is folded into our scratch made caramel. In a word - Addictive!! 


Take a bow for this elegant duet of chocolate and white chocolate lovingly latticed on our fresh scratch KuKuRuZa Caramel Corn. We artfully weave premium Chocolate and smooth creamy White Chocolate, with a hint of soft aromatic vanilla, over our Classic Caramel Corn. 

Black Raspberry with Vanilla Cream

Fancy French cuisine meets good old KuKuRuZa popcorn. A classic French inspired liaison of Raspberry with Black Raspberry is enrobed on our fluffy air popped popcorn. Then to class it up another notch, we generously lattice with creamy premium white chocolate. Oui, oui. Plus s´il vous plait… Wash this down with some fine French pressed cafĂ© and you´ll be seeing the Eiffel tower in your dreams and wake up inspired to paint the next Monet.

Buy: You can buy all these flavors and a few others over at KuKuRuZa's website.

Review: Yoomi Self-Warming Baby Bottle

When you get up the in middle of the night and I have boil or heat up water for bottle gets kind of hard because you are tried. Well with Yoomi it just got a lot easier. The Yoomi warms your baby's milk or formula to the natural temperature of breast milk in 60 seconds!  WooHoo!  Think of how easy this will make late night feedings!  No need to heat a pot of water!  No need to wait for one of those bottle warmers to heat up! 

I got this bottle and gave it to my sister in law who just had a baby and she loves it as does my niece. She loves getting nice warm milk, she gets her belly full and it right back to sleep. My sister in law says it is so much easier and she wish she had more of them.

Just make sure the warmer is fully charged and you are ready to go! It is quick and easy to charge:

  • charge the warmer
  • push the button
  • wait for 60 seconds: ready to use!
Charging the warmer is easy. Either charge your warmer in the yoomi pod in 2 mins in the microwave (750-1000 watts) or place the warmer in a pan of water (or steam steriliser) and boil for 25 minutes. Once charged, your warmer stays charged and is ready to use whenever you need it.
Time for a feed? Simply fill your bottle with EBM or pre-mixed formula. Assemble your bottle, press the orange button, wait 60 seconds and feed away!
yoomi is the perfect way to warm baby's feed whether you're on the go or at night. What's more the yoomi bottle combines style, comfort and convenience and is a great bottle on it's own..
