Simply Gogurt- Review AND Giveaway!

My kids enjoy yogurt all times of day, Breakfast, with lunch, as a snack, or as a simple dessert-frozen like a popsicle! I like giving them Gogurt, not only because I know it's good for them, but also because now with Simply GoGurt, I can feed them JUST what they need, no extra artifical colors or ingredients! Thanks to My Blog Spark, I was given the opportunity to review Simply Go-Gurt, and the kids couldn't get enough of it! I bought a pack of store brand yogurt tubes, along with Simply Go-Gurt, and the store brand wasn't opened until a few days after the GoGurt was gone. My son said he just liked the taste better, mabye because I kept telling him it WAS better for him?!

New Simply... Go-Gurt is made from simple ingredients moms look for and contains no high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors or flavors. Each convenient portable yogurt tube contains a good source of calcium and vitamin D. Simply stated, Simply... Go-Gurt is a good-for-you, low fat yogurt snack that you can feel good about giving to your kids.

New Simply... Go-Gurt is available in two kid-friendly flavors, Strawberry and Mixed Berry.
Both kids LOVED the Strawberry, but they weren't as crazy about the Mixed Berry. I would love to see a Banana, or even a Vanilla flavor! I like to throw some in the freezer after I buy them, sometimes I put them in the kids lunches and they are nice and cool by then, or just for a nice cool snack at home!

Hot Locks Doll- Review AND Giveaway!!!

I have a daughter, which means we have a TON of dolls in our house. When given the opportunity to review a new doll, Hot Locks, we were very excited! My daughter just turned 7, so playing dolls is a favorite of hers. The Hot Locks doll gave her more than just a doll to play with, but a doll to style hair, practice braiding, AND play along with her Barbies! The Hot Locks doll, Lili, is about the same size as Barbie, and she comes with removable hair extensions and clips so your child can become a Hair Stylist! My daughter has been playing with hers ever since she opened it, because there is always something new to do with it! I"ve enjoyed showing her how to do braids, and other hairstyles we do on her own hair!

There are 4 Hot Locks dolls to choose from, Ami, Harlow, Lili, and Nahla. Different hair textures are great so that all kids can have a doll that they can say, "Hey,she's got hair like mine!" or, "She looks like me!"

Right now, Hot Locks are available in Phoenix and Chicagoland areas, and will be Nationwide this summer! You can purchase just the doll, who comes with 14" of extra hair, a styling comb and 2 barettes. Or, the Deluxe Hot Lock doll, which comes with many more accesories- 2 ponytails of hair, 4 barrettes, styling comb and more!
If you live in the Chicagoland area, I have found them at a few Walmarts, for around $9! Not only a great gift for your child, but a cool gift for a birthday gift!

Here is the best part! One lucky reader is going to win, Ami, a Hot Locks doll of their own! All you have to do is head over to Hot Locks, and let me know which doll you like best! (Mandatory)

I'm Baaaaack! ( I think!)

Whew, the past few months have gone by quickly, but not without MANY ups and downs! That's my life though, a roller coaster, and unfortunetly, it seems to always have more downs than ups : (
It seemed like every week I started to get ready to blog again, one of the kids was sick. And of course, they passed it back and forth, forever! Then this week, I finally caught the dreaded flu, and have been in bed all week! My daughters 7th birthday was Wednesday, thankfully, with the help of Dayquil, I was able to be awake for most of it! Today I feel better, I'm hoping by Monday I'll be back to normal!

So, I've got a few giveaways I'll be posting, I hope you enter and spread the word, they're good ones!!!

Check out my Easter Swap goodies!!

Recently, I participated in the Easter Swap thanks to Shannon at The Mommy Files! I love doing these swaps because, not only do I get to shop for someone, but I get to meet another blogger AND get a sweet package myself!
My partner this time was Rebecca from Lovely Hullabaloo! I enjoyed reading her blog to find out a bit about her, and now I hope she enjoys her gifts! She sent me a great package, filled with an adorable bunny decoration, a neat book that isn't pictured, because it's in my car so I can read it while waiting for the kids to get out of school!, Peeps Chapstick that tastes really good : ), cookie cutters and my favorite candy- which I may add is pretty much gone! Those Reeses eggs didn't have a chance, lol!

Thank you Rebecca, I loved everything! I really hope you like your package as much as I do!
And thanks again to Shannon, you do an amazing job every single swap! I can't wait for the next one!
