This post is sponsored by Yoplait Greek 100 Whips!


If you are like me, you like to snack - if you are even more like me, and my children, then you like to snack on yogurts and will be very interested to hear about Yoplait's Greek 100 Whips!

You have 8 flavors to choose from, with delights like Vanilla Cupcake, Strawberry Cheesecake and MORE, you are going to love these on their own OR with an added extras!

I personally do not like to add anything to these they are great as they come, but the children LOVE to add sliced bananas or cereal to theirs and so an exciting snack time is born!

The 100 refers to 100 calories, but there is also 9 grams of protein and 0 grams of fat in a Yoplait Greek 100 Yogurt Mousse and so you can enjoy them without all of the guilt of some other delicious treats and goodies that may contain considerably more!

I like to have yogurt for breakfast with granola and so I want to try that, with these, and would love to know if you have tried them with other yummy treats, so that I can try those, too!!

Drop Your Pants For #underwareness with Depend!


-Thanks to our sponsors, Depend!

Did you know that MORE people in their 20's suffer from bladder leakage than people in their 80's and that the average age for the condition is actually around the age of 52 years old with more people under the age of fifty suffering with leakage than there are aged 60 years old or older!

You may be surprised to know that bladder leakage is common and very widespread and you probably know someone who is suffering from it, though you wouldn't even know unless they opened up and over shared with you as there are ways to protect yourself should the need arise when dealing with a leaky bladder!

And this is where Depend comes in!

There is no shame in protecting yourself, or your clothes, and no one ever has to know, unless you'd like to shout it from the rooftops and tell them, which you can so very well do with the Drop Your Pants for Underwareness social movement and charitable cause!!

Using the hashtags #dropyourpants and #underwareness, you can share your photos with Depend, in your protective undies and Depend will donate $1, up to a maximum of $3 million, over the next 3 years to charities that help the progression of research awareness and education for bladder leakage!

NEW Mint Chocolate Breyers Gelato Indulgences, Look-See!

Breyers Gelato Indulgences!

NEW: Mint Chocolate!

Disclaimer: I was provided with a product coupon to taste and try the following product. All opinions are my own, thank you!

Valentines Day is fast approaching and what better way to celebrate than with a sweet treat for your honey, from Breyers, with their Gelato Indulgences!

I personally love ice creams and gelato, probably a little too much, and so I was over the moon to try out the NEW Mint Chocolate flavor Gelato Indulgences and almost ran to the store to pick some up!

An old favorite of mine is mint chocolate anything and so of course I thought I would love this new variety before I even opened the lid, but I knew I would LOVE it when I got my first peek!

This new variety of Gelato Indulgences looks smooth, chocolaty and delicious right out of the container and everyone in our household wanted to give it a try!

We split a little between all of us - there was a good serving to go around - and everyone tucked in with a smile and it didn't last too long, but they sure did indulge!

There was a definitely consensus that the new Mint Chocolate flavor was a big hit, even with our fussy eater as Breyers Gelato Indulgences are just creamy, smooth, tasteful but not overpowering and the mint lingers on your tongue and really holds a lot of flavor! There is a bite in the chocolate and satisfying amount of swirl to finish it off!

I would most definitely recommend the NEW Mint Chocolate flavor, especially if you are a fan of old favorites but want to give them new life in a gelato! 

Absolutely wonderfully done!

If you would like to find out more about the newest addition to the Gelato Indulgences range, then head on over HERE and follow them on Facebook and Twitter to stay up-to-date, too!

I will say that my favorite flavors of Gelato Indulgences is always going to be the Tiramisu, but the Mint Chocolate certainly gives it a run for its money!

Have you indulged yet? What is your favorite flavor of Gelato and what would you LOVE to see in a Gelato that you don't see already!? I do love hearing from you!

Try some out today, or make a little something special for your next date night, with our definite two thumbs up!!

Up Before the Birds!

My nan used to get up at a ridiculously early hour in the day and get everything ready and head out to work and I always thought she was crazy to be able to function at such an early time in the morning!

As I have gotten a little older, and hopefully somewhat wiser, I have learned that getting up earlier in the morning can really work wonders for me throughout the day! 

The morning is the best time for time to think, silence, space, no children, hot showers and just room to breathe. 

It is no secret to most people who know me that I usually get up around 4am and my day will go from there! I get maybe 2 hours to myself before the kids start waking up at around 6ish, but they are so much of a pleasure to see at that time of day when i'm already up and ready to go before them! 

This morning, for instance, is a not-so-sunny Sunday morning, but I am happy as pie due to the simple fact that I got up early, had a shower, made some tea and baked a few mini cupcakes and by 5:30am I was myself and ready for the day! 

Here are said cupcakes... 

Luckily it isn't hard to stick to an early-to-rise schedule as my family's schedule works neatly into that timeframe, but it sure does help going to bed early and getting some much needed sleep - granted, the going to bed part of it isn't always a done deal with 2 children under 4 in the house waking up now and then but, for the most part, it is fabulous and I am glad I got on this train! 

It also helps that half of my friends seem never to sleep, ever! And so a quick morning chat keeps things light and there is never a dull moment! 

Here's to the early risers! May the day be ever in your favor - and in everyone elses, too, because whatever works for you, you're doing it right!

Have a great day!
