Someone Get Me Off This Ride!



Ok, so it isn't Monday. But, I am so behind on everything it sure feels like a Monday. I haven't been keeping up around my blog like I want to lately because life brought me into warp speed lately.

The good news is......I FINALLY GOT A JOB!! After close to a year I found something!! For the last two weeks I have been training and life has gotten so busy. I am officially working nights now but, I am still trying to get adjusted to my new schedule.

I can't tell you what a relief it is. My dryer broke last week and I can't wait for my first paycheck. Living without a dryer and having four kids just isn't working for me.

I am hoping within another week I will have it all down and won't be so tired and hopefully I will be able to keep up with everything.

Country Bob's Sauce Review And Giveaway



I have seen a lot of reviews for Country Bob's Sauce around the blogosphere. I have really wanted to try it myself. I can't tell you how excited I was when I was asked to review it for myself!!



(From the website) In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.

Along with our All Purpose Sauce we have expanded our product line to include BBQ Sauce, Seasoning Salt and Spicy All Purpose Sauce.With our fully automated bottling line we also have the capability of producing Private Label products for stores or restaurants.


The first thing I did was grill up burgers on the grill and tried the sauce. I like steak sauce and I love B-B-Q sauce. Country Bob's Sauce is the best of both worlds. My family and I both LOVED it on our cheeseburgers. I can honestly say I haven't had a burger since from my grill that didn't have the sauce on it.

We also tried it on French Fries and Chicken. They were both really good. The chicken came out so tender and moist with a lot of flavor!

Now it is your turn to try it! I have one bottle to giveaway to one of my lucky readers!!

Happy Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent mine in bed trying to get better. My first sickness of the year really has kicked my butt. I had a cold that turned into a really bad case of bronchitis. I am hoping after the extra sleep I have had and all the antibiotics and steroids I have going I will feel human soon. The good news is I was chosen to be a guest host this week on Making Friends Monday!! Make sure to join along and find other great blogs!

When and why did you start blogging?

I started blogging in January 2008. I blogged for over a year and then had to take a break until the beginning of this year because of medical problems. I am a Mom of four daughters and I miss having adult interaction. Blogging was a great way to find new friends and write about my family.

 What is your favorite part of blogging?
I absolutely adore all the friends I have made. Being a Mom doesn't always give you enough time to have friends around. So, I know if I have a problem or need to get something off my chest I can always go to my bloggy friends. I am also having a blast doing review and giveaways! It gets addicting once you start it. Make sure to check out my giveaways!

Frecklebox Review



I was recently asked to do a review for a wonderful company called Frecklebox. I was able to choose one of their products. To be honest it was very hard to do since all of their merchandise is just too adorable. They sell personalized gifts for kids. I chose a personalized puzzle for one of my daughters.




My daughter was just thrilled when she opened the package. She has had a lot of fun putting her own personalized puzzle together.

Here is the company's description from their website:

Frecklebox is on a mission to educate and entertain. So we conceived this here web-based business to offer truly unique, personalized gifts for children at affordable prices. The site makes it quick and easy to customize each item so it prominently features the name of the child who will receive the gift. Our entertaining selection of personalized books, posters, growth charts, journal books, coloring books, stickers, placemats, puzzles, and other personalized items, are designed to delight your children and friends.


I let my daughter choose which product she wanted from their website. I have to say that I was really impressed with all of their products. They are all super cute, super fun and reasonable. I will be making more stops there for Christmas for personalized gifts for all of my other girls. Christmas is not that far away. Make sure to visit Frecklebox.com to order a great personalized gift for your child.


Disclosure: I was provided the personalized puzzle to write a review. All opinions are my own.

It is an excellent source of calcium and has zero grams of fat and zero grams of saturated fat. Yoplait is the only leading Greek yogurt with vitamins A and D in every cup.

Yoplait Greek yogurt comes in four different flavors; Strawberry, Blueberry, Honey Vanilla, and Plain. My girls and I tried the Plain. I love dressing up my yogurt with fruit and granola. It's also helpful to get that extra serving of fruit into my daughters. Here is what we had.



The girls and I really enjoyed it. We are all looking forward to trying the other flavors. 

Yoplait Greek yogurt is made of milk from cows that are not treated with rBST. They come in 6 oz packages and are available in most major grocery stores nationwide
