Sonic New Flavor Funnels and boneless wings

If your like me you absolutely love the Sonic commercials on TV. They have me laughing every time. Growing up in AZ we lived right around the corner from Sonic Drive In and went there all the time. Then I moved to the East Coast and there wasn’t one around. Now that I am back on the west coast, I am excited to eat there again.

Just in time for Sonic is introducing their new Flavor Funnels.

Sonic

Flavor Funnels are new and added to Sonic Blasts. Choose from Carmel, Chocolate, Oreo Stuffing, and Peanut Butter. With Blast Flavor Funnels, a delectable funnel of flavor at the center is surrounded by hand-mixed Real Ice cream making each Blast a treat within a treat.

They were amazing although I couldn’t really see the Flavor Funnel. The ice cream alone was so good and had tons of Oreos in it. I had my kids with me so we tried each flavor and they loved it.

I also tried out some of their new boneless wings which comes in 6 different flavors. Including Garlic Parmesan, Hot Honey, Pineapple Habanero, Asian Sweet Chili, Buffalo, Honey BBQ. Boneless and crispy made to perfection.
I tried the Honey BBQ and buffalo. They were perfect and I am going to be ordering more for Football games.

Set the Mood For Date Night With Pro-Flowers

I rarely ever have date night, our lives are so busy and with three kids it makes it all more difficult. When we do have a “date night” it includes a movie at home and popcorn and dinner with the kids first. Every once in a while a special occasion will arise like my Birthday in a few days, and I want everything to be special. To set the Mood Pro-Flowers sent me a beautiful bouquet of roses as well as some Sherri’s Berrys and Cheesecake.

It’s been setting the mood for the ultimate Birthday date night.

Atkins Meal Kit Has Kept My Craving In Check

I have been using the Atkins Meal Kit I got daily. Shake in the morning, a frozen meal for lunch and dinner, with a meal bar in between. As I had mentioned before in my previous post, my weight was up and down during my trial with the Atkins Meal Kit.

I am happy to say that after the Atkins meal kit and keeping at it daily with my workout routine, and I am down 12 lbs. Although a few pounds have been added on since I have been off Atkins now a few days. I am satisfied though with my results.

Atkins Meal Kit

The Atkins meal kit comes with a variety of different options and meal that you can choose. I chose the Easy Peasy meal kit, as I am a busy mom and it seemed simple.

Every morning I would have a shake, either Vanilla, chocolate or strawberry. They were actually tasty and very fulfilling.
At lunch I would eat a Atkins Taco Meal or the meat loaf.
A Meal bar a few hours later as a snack.
Dinner another frozen meal.

It’s just a simple meal plan.

Disclosure:This post was sponsored by Charmin as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

As a family of 5, we go through Toilet paper like crazy. I always look for the strongest and softest toilet paper, 2 ply is a must of course. I have been using the same brand for years and loved it, but was recently introduced to a new line of Charmin Toilet paper and had my family try it for a week. They did notice the difference automatically, and asked if I had bought something different.

dscn4123

Charman Essentials is introducing Charmin Essentials Soft and Charmin Essentials Strong, both lines are perfect for families with kids and will hold up to any mess. Plus they keep noses soft and not dried out.

It’s great for families on a budget and has more product to offer then competitors. As proof here is the brand my family has been using for years compared to Charmin Essentials Soft.

dscn4124

You can tell which one is Charmin without even labeling it, as it looks softer and bigger than the other brand.

Right now Upgrade your toilet paper just by tweeting to the company: It’s a great promotion and you get a free roll of toilet paper.

Upgrade your Angel Soft for Charmin Essentials Soft or Scott 1000 to Charmin Essentials Strong just send a TP Swap out request to @Charmin using the hashtag #CharminEssentials and #Promotion, and Charmin will send you a free roll. Please see term and Conditions here.

It’s that simple and you can try it yourself.

After our week of just using Charmin Essentials Soft, we loved it. It was soft and durable, my young kids were at ease using it with no complaints of roughness. I think we will definitely be making the switch, it seems like a better buy in the long run and you get more bang for your buck.

Have you tried Charmin Essentials? You can find Charmin Essentials at all major retailers.

Amazing (mostly Edible) Science Review

We are a big science family. My kids specially love it, collecting data and watching the results is their favorite. Their favorite experiments are done in the kitchen. Science and cooking mixed is like a dream for them.

We received Amazing (Mostly Edible) Science book and my daughter has been non stop with trying all the recipes (experiments).

dscn3949

She has tried so many like the 5 minute ice cream, it turned out good but was a bit messy.
Right now she is working on making her own pickles from scratch, which can take up to a week. Her love for pickles has her waiting though.

The recipe in the book is a simple one.
You basically need a jar, cucumbers, salt water and a few other ingredients. Put them all together and let them sit for a few days until they become pickles.

dscn3950

This experiment will cost you less than $5 and is so simple. After about 3 days the jar definitely started to smell like pickles.

 

dscn3951

They turned out a little to sweet and not as tangy as we like our pickles. We had to do the experiment a second time as the first time,  the pickles started getting mold.   But with every experiment you should do it a couple times. So we will keep doing it until we get the results right.

You can find Amazing (Mostly Edible) Science on Amazon for $14.99

Atkins Makes Meal Planning Simple

I have been on a mission to lose weight since we moved to California. I’ve been hiking and hating the gym everyday, but felt I needed to do more so I started to meal plan. The Atkins Easy Peasy Meal kit makes, planning meals so easy and stress free.

You start with Shakes for Breakfast, a meal bar for snack and a yummy frozen meal for lunch and dinner. It was a hard adjustment at first but half way through the week, it became easier. The shakes were very good. The frozen meals were also good, well most of them. My favorite was the Taco bake bowls.

Nature Made® Kids First® Gummies At Target

This post was sponsored by Nature Made® as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central.

This summer has been absolutely crazy. We moved 3000 miles to a new state, we have done a lot of sight seeing, and so much more. One thing I have to admit I have been bad about this summer is my kids eating healthy or taking their vitamins.

The summer just got so busy and a bit sad when having to leave friends, so a lot of things took a backseat. Now that the kids are back in school, I am implementing our schedule again. My kids are very picky in what they eat, so I always try and substitute something in, like vitamins, or smoothies etc.

My youngest has always refused to take vitamins because he hates having to swallow things whole, but now there are gummy vitamins and they are perfect for any age.

Screen Shot 2016-08-25 at 9.38.00 AM

Finding them in store was rather simple. They were brightly displayed and were easy to spot with all the kids vitamins. They were also on sale which even made them a better buy.

Nature Made

Nature Made® Kids First® Gummies feature:
Contains 12 essential nutrients for age-specific nutritional support, including vitamins A, C, D and E, B vitamins, and minerals like iodine and zinc
All natural fruit flavors Colors
derived from natural sources – No synthetic dyes
No preservatives or yeast
Gluten free

My kids reactions to Nature Made® Kids First® Gummies have been positive they love the flavors. They are easy to swallow and never complain when I say its time to take a vitamin. They are the ones actually coming to me, asking for one before school. That may just be my biggest problem. My kids love them so much they keep asking for them and want to treat them like candy. The design and child prof cap keeps them safe though, and of course having them put away safely.

Have you tried Nature Made® Kids® First® Vitamins with your family? You can find them at Target stores nationwide.

I was sent a lovely basket full of fruit and summer sausage as well cheese and crackers. It came just in time for our first day of school, and the kids were so excited to be able to pack the fruit as well as some other items in their lunch.

The Hickory Maple Bacon has a strong distinct flavor, it’s kind of hard to describe. Some members of my family like it, others did not. The basket was great the Summer Sausage and crackers was the first to go of course. Everyone in my family loved it.

Treasure Hunters Book Review

Treasure Hunters: Perils At The Top Of the World is the brand new book out by renowned author James Patterson. Featuring a brand new adventure with the Kidd Family

After their adventures in China and Germany, the Kidd family is ready for some rest and relaxation. But when you’re an ace treasure hunting team, there’s always another adventure waiting around the corner! This time, the Kidds head to Russia where a set of priceless paintings by Leonardo da Vinci and Rembrandt has gone missing. Hot on the trail of the daring thieves, the Kidds race through the sinister streets of St. Petersburg and the wild Arctic tundra to track down the stolen treasure.

My daughter got a late start on this book but hasn’t been able to put it down, she loves to read and loves adventure stories.

Screen Shot 2016-08-04 at 2.38.52 PM

Review written by my daughter age: 11

Treasure Hunters is all about a secret spy family trying to fight bad guys, and get stolen art back to their rightful owners as they are also on vacation. They like to travel across the world! The twins are complete opposites, and Storm has a photographic memory. Their brother is always on the hunt trying to attract ladies and be silly. The parents are retired C.I.A. Agents and together as a family they like to catch criminals, including a lot of close call situations where they almost got hurt.

I haven’t been able to put the book down. I can’t wait to see what happens on the next page, and the book makes me laugh. This book is perfect for anyone who likes adventure.

SoftSoap Now Features Frozen and Star Wars

The one thing I struggle with daily is getting my kids to wash their hands before meals and after bathroom trips. The struggle is real, they say they don’t like to have to pick up the bar soap and they would rather play. I started buying SoftSoap as it was inexpensive and easy to use. My kids liked it but I am still having trouble getting them to wash their hands every time they need too. we started introducing games and rewards and it kept getting better.

SoftSoap Frozen and Star Wars line was just introduced this year to retailers and features your favorite characters, like Yoda, R2D2, Olaf and Elsa.

We just received the new SoftSoap Frozen and Star Wars bottles and my kids love them. They are actually washing their hands without me yelling at them. They love the new designs and are actually making hand washing fun, although at times they will take the bottle and just play a game since it has the character on it.

You can find these fun colorful Softsoap bottles at retailers nationwide for $2.99
