Easy Lunchbox Resolution Checklist #NewYear #LunchBoxResolution #Spon

Disclaimer: I've had the pleasure to work with Sverve, and Del Monte® on this Sponsored Post.  All Opinions are my own.

It's time to get back on Schedule by committing to A New Years Lunchbox Resolution. I don't know about you all, but this Winter Break has flown by.  I cannot believe it's already a New Year Approaching. 
With my Son, a Schedule is everything, and we've been off track for The Holidays.  Our New Years Resolution is to get back into a school day schedule, with a fun after school snack, and playground routine since the Weather here in Virginia is still unbelievably beautiful.

To Me, Resolutions should be fun, playful, and Easy to obtain.  

  1. It should be Easy to Prepare, while also easily available thanks to Walmart!
  2. Healthy Alternatives that the whole Family enjoys! ( We like the Saputo® - Frigo® CheeseHeads® Cheese Snack, Pepperidge Farm® - Pepperidge Farm® Swirl Bread, and Del Monte® Fruit Cup® Snacks and Del Monte® Fruit & Veggie Fusions.)
  3. Playground Fun for After School along with a Snack. You know, to get that Extra Energy Out!
  4. Use More Coupons, I want to be able to save money, and track using a Free Spread Sheet to see just how much money I am saving monthly while providing for my Family with things we all enjoy.

Be on the LOOK OUT, for these Valuable Coupons ($6.25 off Different Products) available at Walmart this January on Del Monte® Fruit Cup® Snacks and Del Monte® Fruit & Veggie Fusions

What are your Families Resolutions?

Happy 5th Birthday to My Love #AutisticKidsRock #Carnival #Birthdays

My baby boy turned 5 this month.  I can't believe it.  I wanted to have games at the party that he could participate in since he never gets to do things like that at others parties.  You'd be surprised at how much he's left out of.  I never want to do that to him, so I make sure on his day, we do things he can do.  So I gave Sy a carnival themed Birthday.  We did one of his favorite sensory things, water play, but as the Carnival Duck Pond game.

There also was a couple Stick the sticker on the Poster kind of games, like a Pin the Tail on the Donkey.  Every kid was a winner.   We blew up a lot of Punch balls, and balloons to throw around. We blew up inflatable swords, and animals for Carnival Prizes as well.  Sy had so much fun, and I could tell in his eyes, and his smile that he was enjoying himself.  He doesn't talk, but his eye's said it all for me.  He was happy, the moment that cake came out for him, he was  so happy.

If you want a few ideas for a Toddlers Birthday Party, have a Carnival Themed Party.  I even found a face-cut out Banner for Photo Ops.  The personalized Banner I painted myself that Says Happy Birthday Sy (The Poster Board Cost $1.00), while the red/white table cloth, and Face Cut out Banner was under $10.00.  I also found Red/White Popcorn Bowls to use for the Food Table at the Dollar Store as well.

My nieces dubbed it Best Birthday Ever.  If you have no idea what to do for your Toddlers next Birthday, do their favorite TV Character/Carnival Theme for Prizes.

Guitar Hero Live #Review #HolidayGiftGuide #HGG #Spon

Looking for a fun video game to play together? Check out Guitar Hero LIVE,  make sure it's the Bundle with Two Guitars.

What made me find this game more fun, was how interactive the music, and crowd was, with the songs being played.  I found it a lot different the past Guitar Heroes. The music is more Vast, and I do like a lot of different genres.

Which isn't a bad thing, It's more challenging now,  Even the tutorial, from the moment you turn the game on, felt more like Expert, which made it fun, and challenging. I like a good competition among friends, and this, has it. It felt more real, like the Tech was actually talking to me, instead of just Cartoony-ish Characters.  Even the Crowds cheering you on (just don't make them Boo you off the stage) feels real.

A Parents Formula For Happiness. Free Certified Sleep Consultant! #FormulaForHappiness #Ad

When I found out I was going to have a baby, all I wanted was a healthy, happy mini me.  I would say a lot has changed after having him, as in just a stronger will to make sure he is developing while being healthy, happy and everything else.  There are still nights that I have many questions, and just need that reassurance and suggestions on what works for other babies too.   Happiness can be a peace of mind, and accepting help from others.  I needed help with maintaining a bedtime routine without feeling judged on Nutrition Consultant, Breastfeeding Support, and Sleep Support,

Gerber® Good Start® Gentle believes that the Formula for Happiness™ can be a lot of things, and moms have different ways of enjoying the journey through motherhood. That journey isn't always perfect, but getting support every step of the way helps. That is why Gerber® Good Start® Gentle is happy to introduce a Certified Sleep Consultant to support expectant and new parents by providing free, personal 1-on-1 baby sleep consultations.

I went to the website, and requested a time/date for the Certified Sleep Consultant to call me.  I like that an Email was sent while making the appointment, and reminders.  The website is easy to navigate, and all I did was click the day I wanted to reserve my appointment.  When Christina called, she was very polite, informative, and asked me questions about my Son.  Some of my fears, and what others mothers told me to do, she helped me find a better alternative than sleep aides.  I like that Christina was friendly, and easy to talk to.  I started a routine with my son that is easy to follow, and he's bathed, and in bed around 8pm, no matter what.  Routine, and a healthy sleep schedule is everything.  I'm still learning, but I feel better that we all are on a schedule that is easy to follow. My favorite time to spend with my son now is taking him new places, and to the park,  the swing,  bath time, and reading to him before bed.  We do this everyday, and I love it.  His happiness means everything to me.

Make your free appointment to have A Certified Consultant to call you. Gerber Start Healthy, Stay Healthy even has Pre-Natal Consultants that can help answer any questions too, Check all the free Services offered by going here to Gerber Experts,

Big Bucket Of Zombies Action Figures on Brain Cupcakes #Review #Halloween #‎BigBucketOfZombies‬ ‪#‎FTWD‬ ‪#‎TWD‬ ‪#‎Walkers‬ ‪#‎Zombies‬ ‪#‎Spon‬

With Halloween approaching, and my Favorite Zombie Shows like Fear The Walking Dead, and The Walking Dead on I can't get enough of the Walkers.  It made complete sense to me why I needed a Bucket of 100 Plastic Zombies, Men/Women Running From Zombies, Zombie Pets, and matching Zombies escaping from Grave stones all Night of the Living Dead in my collection too.

I am going to add a handful to my Halloween Candy bowl as well.  There are plenty to go around! I also am going to use them for on top of Brain Cupcakes.

For the brain cupcakes I just use a basic red velvet cake mix, whipped icing with a little bit of red food coloring and put the dark pink icing in the corner of a sandwich bag, twirl the bag til all the icing is just in one corner, then cut a small hole in that corner. Then do this Brain pattern on to of the cupcake. It makes it look like brains!

If you want to do a Zombie Cake without the unwanted effort, you could use this to make a Grave yard with Zombies, and still have a lot left over to put in Party Favor Bags. The possibilities of these Action Figures are almost endless.

What I really like about The Big Bucket of Zombies Action Figures is the detail of the characters, One is holding a brain.. another is stretching out plastic intestines..  some looked like they've been undead longer than others. The Zombie Dog that's ready to attack made me laugh.  It's those type of details in Plastic Action Figures (Think retro Plastic Army Men, but as Zombies!)  that make these different.

*Ceramic Graveyard Set Not Included. 

If Zombies aren't your cup of tea check out Big Bucket's other Action Figure sets: Animal Adventure Action Figures, Civil War Soldiers, Farm Animals, Firemen, Safari Animals; Sea Creatures and Dinosaur Skeleton figures. They are available for purchase for $19.99 by visiting:, and at specialty retailers nationwide.

  • Instead of handing out big buckets of candy, Big Buckets of Monsters and Zombies are an unexpected alternative to offer trick-or-treaters.

  • Each Big Bucket comes with 100 assorted spooky action figures- including zombies, gravestones, humans, werewolves, and even Frankenstein! With over a dozen unique sculpts... down to the poses!

  • Each set of creepy creatures comes in two colors, so you can have awesome undead battles! Buckets of Zombies are also available in glow in the dark, for late night fights. Each bucket includes an assortment of durable, heavy plastic action figures, great for indoor or outdoor action-packed play and electronic-free fun!
  • Unlike the average figurine, these menacing monsters stand up on their own, and they definitely put the action in action figure.
This is a sponsored post, I received product for my review, and opinion.  Photos of my Zombie Graveyard, and Cupcakes are my own.  *Ceramic Graveyard Not Included in Bucket of Zombies (I'm just a Halloween Nerd.)

Bake Crunchy Pecan-Banana Coffee Cake Muffins For The Fam! #Recipes #Spon #PostFood

The thing that I love most about this delicious recipe for Crunchy Pecan-Banana Coffee Cake Muffins. is that it can be baked, and then saved for the rest of the week as a quick Breakfast as you're going out the door. Between Work, Kids, and Everything in between, the convenience of meal prepping, and having the meals for the week just makes one less thing to worry about.  To me, it's also better than caving into a Breakfast that isn't full of Healthy Grains, and Nuts. Great Grains Crunchy Pecan cereal is perfect for this Crunchy Pecan-Banana Coffee Cake Muffins Recipe.

  3. Stir in the yogurt, oil, and egg white.
  4. Add the dry ingredients to the yogurt mixture and stir just until blended.
  5. Stir in the cereal. The batter will be thick.
