Why @SodaStreamUSA would make a great addition to #blogmania2011 + Berry Slush recipe #imabzzagent

sodastreamdylan

Last January I had the pleasure of doing a review for Sodastream. Here is my reaction in the first review:  We now use Sodastream on a daily basis.  There are so many different options from regular soda, diet, & natural that do not include high fructose corn syrup.  My husband is a fan of the energy drink. As well as, our guilty pleasure has always been coke with lime; using cola zero and mywater lemon-lime, we are able to make a delicious alternative.  Even if you aren’t a pop drinker, this … [Continue]

His&Her Tech Review: Is the @TMobile @HTC Sensation 4G appealing for both sexes? #giveaway

2011-09-26_16-46-40

My husband & I are like night & day when it comes to many things.  To him technology is a hobby and to me it is a means of getting from point A to point B.  As a mom & blogger, I live and breathe technology yet I don't always pay attention to more than what makes my life easier.  He on the other hand does research on all the newest tech "toys" for fun in great detail.  With all that being said that is what makes phones like the HTC Sensation 4G stand out, the ability to appease both … [Continue]

@sneakychef to the Rescue #giveaway (includes #glutenfree & allergyfriendly)

sneakychef

In my house, I make no excuses for healthy eating.  I have raised my boys from homemade baby food.  Along the way, I have enjoyed teaching them the importance of healthy eating.  Our motto: food is fuel.  "Mom, but I'm not hungry" "That's okay, but you won't have energy for the fun stuff later" What do you know they are miraculously starving.  The boys are healthy eaters, but they all have their quirks.  How they don't like sweet potato fries is beyond me, but I find a way to sneak in the … [Continue]

DIY: Make your own #glutenfree playdough recipe #celiac

IMAG0874

Today was the boys' first day of school.  Since Hunter is starting pre-k, we have a lot of gluten free issues to consider within the school.  4 year olds with playdough was definitely one of my major concerns, so Hunter & I are making weekly batches of playdough for the whole class.  I love those teachable moments!  Using everyday items to create playdough is a great way to show children how simple ingredients can have wonderful results.  Hunter at age 4 has now had the experience of playing … [Continue]

How my boys & Frank the pirate (a.k.a Frank the cat) showed me tolerance is possible #glutenfree #celiac

IMAG0262

Over the past few weeks, I have been distracted. Hunter starts school in a couple of days. Needless to say I am scared of how it will go, but not for the reasons you might think. I would be lying if I didn't say avoiding cross-contamination in a room full of 4 year-olds seems like a miracle.   However, what it all comes down to is... Tolerance 1: capacity to endure pain or hardship : endurance, fortitude, stamina 2: sympathy or indulgence for beliefs or practices differing from or conflicting … [Continue]
