I think we all have those derned stubborn stains that just won’t come off. Mold and Mildew that collects around our shower head, tiles and more. And nothing is more frustrating than having to sit there and scrub it when you have better things to do! [Read more...]

At Christmas I earned beautiful necklace charms, plush toys and more just by entering my codes on already purchased Disney Movies on the website.

SUMMER IS ALMOST HERE! And though I am excited to kick the school year schedule to the curb, I am also well aware that I will be shuttling my kids to friend’s houses, art camp, Vacation Bible School and more! So I am still in need of quick and easy meals that my kids will eat and love!
But in the interest of speed I don’t want to forget about nutrition. My kids – and I – will still need to eat our vegetables enjoy our protein and fill our bellies with good things! But in a seriously collapsed amount of time. So when I roll through the grocery aisles, kids hanging on my basket, pointing out every fattening sugar filled item they want me to buy, I am always thrilled to find healthy eating options in instant meal packaging.
Luckily, Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips are an awesome delicious and healthy food to have in my freezer to toss into a pasta dish, salad or tortilla for that fast and easy, healthier meal! And since my kids LOVE “white chicken”, as they call it, it is an easy sale to them.
See my entire shopping experience and how I created this delicious dish below in my Google + Story:
After getting our standard fruits and veggies for the house, I headed to the frozen foods section. I love frozen foods for storage and convenience but I find that a lot of it can be quite unhealthy. So I was excited to see an entire section of a frozen food bin stocked with Tyson Frozen Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips! I looked around for a little bit and did not see many competing items from other brands. I know I have seen them, but they were not to be found on this day! There were just too many awesome varieties of the Tyson products!
As I looked through the selection, the Southwestern Flavored Chicken Strips gave me an idea! Why not create a light version of my favorite Southwestern Chicken Alfredo for dinner?
I grabbed the strips, swung back by the veggie aisle to get some broccoli and then headed to the pasta aisle. I found a light version of an Alfredo sauce and some angel hair pasta that I knew would cook super fast!
As I checked out, I swung by and picked up more Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken Strips. You can never have too many in a busy household, in my opinion!
Later at home, true to form, time got away from us playing in the front yard, laughing with the neighbors and shooting baskets. Before I knew it, it was 6:30 and my kids had not eaten! I needed something FAST!
I pulled out my Tyson Southwestern Grilled and Ready chicken strips and threw some in a pan I had sprayed with cooking spray. I filled a pot and added my angel hair pasta to cook. I then chopped up some broccoli. When the chicken was mostly warm – it took about 4 minutes - I tossed in the broccoli. A few minutes later, the pasta was al dente so I drained it and tossed it into my pan with the southwest chicken and broccoli.
WOW- what a delicious fast and easy dish! The chicken, simply warmed in a pan, was juicy and had a little southwest kick. It was not dry- one of my biggest pet peeves with chicken – and was easy to cut with a fork. My kids LOVED it and even ate all of their broccoli because it had the light sauce on it!
And I was patting myself on the back for getting a healthy, fast and easy meal from bag to table in less than 10 minutes!
We all lack for time so anything that is high quality and can help us make great meals for our family is AWESOME! Next time you are at Walmart, pick up all of the varieties of Tyson Grilled and Ready Chicken! What recipes would you make with it?

This evening my children taught me a new dance they learned, it’s called the Tooty Ta Dance. I LOVED it and thought I would share it with you guys so you can teach your kids and watch the cuteness emerge!
My girls are the Tooty Ta Dance instructors- pay attention!
Can your kids do the Tooty Ta dance yet?
Subscribe to my YouTube Channel for more awesome videos!
The Tooty Ta Dance is great for preschool kids since they love the tune, the words repeat and they get to do lots of fun motions. For preschoolers it’s another great way to learn body part names while having fun. No better learning than when it is fun.

Some artists never lose their ability to impress us with their talent. It does not matter how long they have been on the scene, how many albums they put out, or how often we hear their name.
So when we wait 20 years to hear new music from an artist whose ‘old’ music had stood the test of time, we are excited, happy and can’t wait to get our hands on it!
Rod Stewart is BACK! His new album TIME is ready for you to purchase, download to your iPod, your MP3 player or computer and sit back and let yourself get lost in the soothing voice that has entertained us for 4 decades!
Along with the release of Time, Stewart is set to embark on the European leg of his Live the Life tour onJune 1st, while American dates with Steve Winwood will kick off October 17th.
Let me tell you, this album is worth the purchase and download. That traditional, Rod Stewart, soulful voice radiates through every track. Some songs remind me of the old, but forever classic, songs and some, like Sexual Religion, offers a new sound – a softer sound- meant to entice your thoughts as your feet and fingers tap along to the beat.
Suddenly ideas for lyrics were piling up in my head,” he says. “Next thing I knew, I had a song called ‘It’s Over’ about divorce and separation. And now I was getting up in the middle of the night and scrambling for a pen to write things down, which has never happened to me. I finished seven or eight songs very quickly and I still wasn’t done, and it became apparent that I would eventually have a whole album of material to record.
Mr. Stewart lets us in in this CD to stories and experiences in his life. And as we are listening to lyrics that we all can relate to, like “Don’t go looking for a pot of gold, Over that miracle mile; Happiness lies in your own back yard, Utopia can take a little while.”
The album was born from a burst of inspiration that came while Rod was reviewing his life for his recent memoir. Rod rediscovered his voice as a songwriter and rekindled his gift for writing the honest, nerve-touching narratives that have been the cornerstone to the first three decades of his career.
This CD is a must own. Especially since Mr. Stewart does such a phenomenal job with the songs he wrote and produced. Take a walk through the history of a classic artist. Your ears will thank you for it!

Oh my goodness! I am jumping in my shoes happy here! Raise your stylish hand if you have ever made a store clerk go back in the back – maybe even a few times – to look for your size in that PERFECT outfit because it was not on the rack?!? I did this a few weeks ago when I was at Sears looking for an outfit for a blogging conference I was going to!
The perfect shoes in my size were no where to be found! I was soooo not happy! Apparently, everyone in America is a size 7 1/2 and HAD to have the little black beaded shoe that was perfect for my dress!
Well, the days of running store clerks ragged is OVER! Sears.com is to the rescue!
Get this! You can order your perfect outfit on Sears.com and pick it up in the store! But wait! They will GUARANTEE that outfit be there waiting for you within 5 minutes of your online order! YES!! AND, if they don't have it ready in 5 minutes or less, you will get a $5 Sears coupon!
I almost want to type this again! It is SO exciting! If I had found my perfect little beaded shoes online, I could have ordered them, walked into my local Sears and picked them up right then and there.
Now, I'll be honest, I have no idea how they are ever going to make this work! But they must have little outfit carrying helicopters that rush from store to store delivering online orders. I, for one, will be checking out the featured marketplace offers and the newest arrivals and testing them out!
You will notice that at Sears.com you will find an expanded and amazing selection of TOP designers – Michael Kors, Nike, Tony Birch and on and on and on and on – and that your selection choices are vast compared to a lot of sites! PLUS, Sears is adding new designers, manufacturers and more every single day. Shop from one site for ALL of your favorite products!
I was in love with Sears and their new fashion sense before… but now I am in love with so much more! And now I am soooo going shopping!
The other day my kids wanted to go to McDonald's for dinner. We were out and would not be home for a while and so I thought it would be OK just this once. We hit McDonald's about once a month, I would say. When in line ordering, one of my kids said they wanted chicken – but not nuggets – the 'white' chicken, which is what they call grilled chicken breast. We have it all the time and they love it.
But, of course, there is no option for a kid's meal with grilled chicken. Nor is there one for a kid's meal with a salad. And I, for the umteenth time, thought – why can't there be healthier options for kids at McDonald's?
Sure, they have slimmed down the fries and require fruit in every happy meal now, but the 'main course' could be healthier as well. As I understand it, the happy meals are still well over 1000 calories and that is just too much for one meal. But short of sharing my frustration on my Facebook page, I have no real idea how to make a stand and create an initialtive to make a change!
Well, now, I have Social Power! Social Power helps little people like me create initiatives online in order to make real change! See the video below for an idea of how it works:
Sign up FREE for SocialPower.com. Create your issue on the top of the page. Add your description and your rational idea and submit the issue. Then share it on your social networks. You can support my McDonald's Healthier Happy Meal issue here!

Once an initiative is created, Social Power takes on the responsibility of taking on your issue! They will contact McDonald's, in my example, and work with them to try to resolve my issue!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this! How many times do you post on Facebook about an issue? Now you can actually make a difference. And you can do it with 1 follower or 100,000 followers!
Sign up today and the next time something bugs you or you want change, use SocialPower to your benefit and turn yourself from 'just a person on the web' to a real change maker!
I have a confession. I was not born with a green thumb. In fact, if it is green, I generally kill it. My parents – who are master gardeners – are so confused as to how I did not pick any of their skill up at all.
But I love plants and I want to beautiful, living things growing all around me!
The Soothing Company offers thousands of soothing products for your home and garden. Everything from outdoor fountains to bonsai trees to a wall mounted fireplace.
Bonsai Trees have long been a favorite of those of us who have no idea how to make a plant grow. So when I was offered the beautiful Small Bonsai Gardenia Tree from The Soothing Company, I was all over it. I was bound and determined to get this thing to grow and flourish and decorate my back patio with style!
When it arrived I was anxious to see how it looks coming straight out of the package. I was amazing that it was instantly ready to display! It has a beautiful porcelain base and the tree was healthy and green and so pretty! I have had it a few months now and have willed it to bloom with water every day and the perfect spot on the patio. But, it turns out, it is not time for it to bloom so I could have told you about this months ago!
The Bonsai seems very slow growing, which I like but – even when neglected – is green and healthy looking. And when I do get it to bloom, I’ll share that picture with you too! Right now, I’ll have to show you stock photo though!
This beautiful and low maintenance Bonsai Garndenia Tree has me convinced that I can care for a plant!
I love this website! I am currently stalking for a wall mounted fireplace. I mean, how cool are those? And since we are going to be outside a lot this summer, I really want an outdoor fountain!! Maybe soon!
Check out the entire selection and tell me what you would purchase!
And since The Soothing Company thinks everyone should have a plant that will be beautiful on their pation, (1) of my lucky readers will WIN a Small Bonsai Gardenia Tree! Just enter below and GOOD LUCK!!

If you are anything like me, the sounds of trickling water is soothing and relaxing. But, aside from letting your faucet run – which can be annoying – it can be hard to enjoy that beautiful sound indoors. And if you have ever looked for fountains at home improvement stores and such, the prices can make your eyes bulge out!
Pro Home Stores offers thousands of home and office decor items with free shipping and no sales tax. Everything from floor fountains to a wall mounted fireplace and even a air conditioner cover.
Lucky for those of us who want a unique, beautiful item in our home that creates a calming, soothing atmosphere, Pro Home Stores has affordable, elegant fountains for tabletops to floors. All available and shipped free and with no sales tax!
I was so lucky to receive the 8″ Pouring Pot Tabletop Fountain and I have to say, it is so pretty and elegant that I have it on all the time. Forget noisy televisions. Let the gentle sounds of water accompany the daily routine!
This fountain sat in the box while I traveled and when I did open it, I was truly nervous about how hard it would be to put together. Well, I had zero to worry about. First of all, it is so lightweight. It is made of durable plastic so it is well weighted but easy to move. The assembly took about 3 minutes. I just attached the tube and placed the pot portion on top of the base.
I added distilled water to keep calcification from building up and plugged it in. I could hear the pump working and then, water… that clean, fresh sound of water flowing, delicately dancing out of the mouth of the pot to the base. It is so nice. I have it in my living room on my table and every time I plug it in, I smile.
Don’t be afraid of moving water into your house. Don’t want a tabletop fountain? Dress up your walls with affordable floor fountains! How lovely would one of these be as you have guests over for a relaxing evening?
My next goal is to get an amazing wall mounted fireplace! We don’t have one in this house and I would LOVE to have one of these elegant pieces! I miss that ambiance that fireplaces give homes!
