Fiber One Review and Giveaway

Do you struggle to incorporate fiber into your everyday life? If so, you are not alone! Nine out of 10 Americans aren´t getting enough fiber - an alarming statistic, considering how important fiber is for overall health.

My family was able to review 5 different Fiber One cereals. The cereal might be good for you but they have a great taste as well. I have to say that my favorite one was the Caramel Delight. It was so good! I did hide it from my kids so they wouldn't eat it all.

The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What´s amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious, with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving. (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!) Fiber One Original® and flavored varieties like Honey Clusters®, Raisin Bran Clusters®, Caramel Delight®, and Shredded Wheat®, make fiber taste good and help to give people a jump start on their fiber intake each day.

Visit Fiber One online for great information on healthy living and additional ways to incorporate fiber into your diet. Also, be sure to check out the Fiber One Facebook page and get involved in the conversation. We´d love to hear how you stay satisfied with Fiber One cereals!

License Plate Art

Fathers day was coming and we were not sure what to get my father in-law. I mean really what do you get a man who has everything ? Well I started  to think of things that he enjoys and his 73 Bronco is his current baby but really he has everything done to it that he wants done as of right now. So that was put on the back burner, so I was in his shop and noticing all his different licence plates. So when I got home I googled licence plate crafts and to my surprise all kinds of stuff came up. I notice a couple things that I thought were neat but the prices were on the high side, but I knew I could make it myself. So the hunt began, we went to garage sales, antique stores, Goodwill's, and craigslist and could not find what we needed. So one week till fathers day and I thought we would just have to find him something that he would never use. Then for some reason I thought look on Etsy and sure enough tons of people had what I was looking for, but there was one sight that had a lot of the work done for me and after emailing her she said she could have what I needed in time for fathers day, and she had them to me 3 days later. I f any of you ever need License Plate stuff go to YesterdayOriginals and she is great to work with.
So this is what we came up with and it has to do with his Bronco and licence plates.
He loved it and posted a picture on his bronco group page and got so many people loving it .

Lawry's Review

 I was lucky enough to be picked by BzzAgent to review Lawry's product. Well my family already used some of there stuff like the seasoning salt, you will always find that in my pantry. I was sent there Classic Seasoned Salt Herb Marinade and there Balsamic Herb Marinade which we used when we made our steak and everyone loved it. I have never heard of it before I was sent it and to be honest I don't think it is one I would of bought because when I hear that name it makes me think of something you would use with bread, but after trying it on our steak I was very happy with it. It is one that we would buy again and again. With 4th of July coming up I am sure we will be buying more of there marinades.

Lawry's also has a good web page that you could find recipe's, more of there products, and good tips.

I could not get the done steak to upload ;0{

My kids first & last day of school

 Well the school year started great then we had to move suddenly in October then they hated school till about the end of April and then they kind of liked it. This was Alyssa's last year in elementary school which she is sad about. " I think I am sadder then she is though' They all were happy after school now that they can eat what ever they want from the lunch shelf. When Ryan got in the car he showed me his fathers day card he made and I had to laugh when I got to the part where it said I think my dad is as hansom as a dog. A dog REALLY gosh I love the way he thinks.
I just noticed Ryan is wearing the same shirt he was wearing on the first day of school. I swear he has more shirts but he has really only wore it a couple times because he got it for school and then it got to cold to wear till about 2 weeks ago.

First Day of school. September/2010
Last Day of school. June/2011

If you want you can go over to last years pictures and look at how much bigger they have got.

Alyssa got braces today. She was so excited to get them, she wanted them before school was out. Crazy I know. I just love her Orthodontist office, everyone there is so nice and friendly. They have this cute board that says who getting braces that day and they always have these neat contest going on. They have this report card thing that for every A you get with keeping your braces looking good and clean you get a pair of movie passes.
