A Good Gluten Free Cereal: New Vanilla Chex

Are you or someone you are close to enjoying a gluten free lifestyle?  If so, then you may be happy to hear about the newest member of the Chex cereal line, the Vanilla flavored Chex cereal.  This cereal is naturally flavored, gluten free, and it only has 8 grams of sugar and 120 calories per serving!  I am lucky enough to have been sent several FREE boxes of Vanilla Chex so that I may try them for myself and share my opinion with you.
 

My family and I enjoy eating cereal with milk for breakfast and we often enjoy it as a dry snack too.  I like offering my kids the Vanilla Chex because they are satisfying, whole grain,  and they don't have any saturated fat.  My kids enjoy the Vanilla Chex because they are sweet and taste good!  So eating Vanilla Chex is a win/win for everyone in my home.

                           As they say a picture is worth a thousand words:
 

If you are looking for more great tasting, gluten free cereals from Chex then look for the following:
Rice Chex, Corn Chex, Honey Nut Chex, Chocolate Chex, Cinnamon Chex, Apple Cinnamon Chex, and Vanilla Chex.  

    

Disclosure:  I have been sent a FREE sampling of the New Vanilla Chex cereal from General Mills so that I may try it and share it with my readers.  All opinions are my own.

Fall Fun With Halloween Costumes

Can you believe that it is already October?  I can't but I am ready for it!  I am loving the cooler temperatures that comes with early fall and I am waiting with anticipation for the tree leaves to change colors.  Another thing that I enjoy about fall is all of the carnivals and festivals that it brings.  Halloween is also in fall and that is a fun holiday for us!


This year my daughter is going trick or treating as a beautiful blue Ballerina Butterfly.  I found her costume on Halloween Adventure and I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a new costume.  Their site is easy to navigate and they have everything from adult to kids costumes, wigs, hats and even makeup!  Everything that you need for any special costume dress up occasion can be found on their website.  Their checkout is quick and the delivery was timely also.  You could order a costume today and it should be here before Halloween.  If you do order, be sure to use code SPOOKY20 to save an additional 20% off all costumes.




My daughter loves her blue Ballerina Butterfly costume!  It fits her well and it makes her feel very pretty!  The only thing that we will add for Halloween night is a pair of black tights and a black long sleeved undershirt because the nights can be pretty chilly at the end of October.  

Do you have your costumes yet?  You may learn more about Halloween Adventure on facebook and on Google+.  I hope that you and your family have a safe and Happy Halloween!

Purex FELS-NAPTHA Review & Giveaway




I am a Purex Insider and I always enjoy trying the new products that they send to me.  This time we are trying a laundry bar and stain remover called FELS-NAPTHA.  While Fels-Naptha has been around and removing stains since 1894, this is my first time to try it.


At first I was hesitant to sign up for this promotion because I have never used a laundry bar before but then I thought, what a great way to try something really new!  I can give Fels-Naptha a try for FREE and then I can make an educated decision on whether or not this product is for me.

I used my bar of Purex Fels-Naptha as a pre-wash stain treatment on my husband's uniforms first and I plan on using it on my son's football uniform later this football season.  I was pleasantly surprised by the Purex Laundry Bar.  Not only is it easy to use but it works well too.  To use, Fels-Naptha you simply rub it on the stain that you wish to remove and then you wash your clothes as you normally would.  It works well on removing grease, dirt, and ring around the collar stains.  It is even safe on colors too!

To help celebrate 120 years, Purex Fels-Naptha is hosting a 120 Years, 120 Winners Sweepstakes.  This sweepstakes will have 1 grand prize winner who will receive $500 and 119 second prize winners will receive a coupon for a FREE bar of  Fels-Naptha.  You may enter this sweepstakes 1 time per person, per day up until August the 28th.  Good Luck! 


Giveaway Time:  For your chance to try Fels-Naptha please fill out this rafflecopter form.  One of my readers will be sent a coupon for a FREE product.

Giveaway: 20 Mule Team Borax

I am a member of the Purex Insiders and this time we are reviewing 20 Mule Team Borax.  While this is my first time to try 20 Mule Team Borax, this all natural product has been around since 1891 and it has many uses.  I have used the 20 Mule Team Borax as a laundry booster while it may also be used as a multi-purpose household cleaner.  Not only does 20 Mule Team Borax remove stains but it also neutralizes odors as well.

I use 20 Mule Team Borax mainly on my husband's work uniforms.  He works on an assembly line building big trucks and the addition of the laundry booster helps to eliminate the grease stains in his clothes and it deodorizes and freshens his uniforms as well.


20 Mule Team Borax is easy to use as a laundry booster.  You simply add your regular laundry detergent along with 1/2 of a cup of 20 Mule Team borax to your washing machine and then start your normal washing cycle.  The Borax improves the cleaning power of your detergent and it helps to remove tough stains. 

 

20 Mule Team Borax is also great for cleaning toilet bowls, garbage disposals, drains, carpets and rugs, dishwashers and it also softens hard water yet it is still gentle enough to add to your baby clothes and delicates in the washing machine!

It is also a safe and natural alternative to color safe bleach.  Not only does 20 Mule Team Borax remove stains but it also neutralizes odors too.













 Giveaway Time:  For your chance to try 20 Mule Team Borax for FREE please enter this giveaway through the rafflecopter form below.

Miracle-Gro: The Gro Project

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Miracle-Gro for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Summer is here and Miracle-Gro is trying to help new gardeners find fun garden projects that are both easy and enjoyable.   There you will find creative projects such as Toyarium, Ukulele Garden, Origami Garden, G.Y.O.B. or Thrown Down!  Miracle-Gro also offers online access to an extensive library of videos and articles that are full of gardening tips that are helpful for both beginners and professionals.  Be sure to check it out so that you can help your garden to be the healthiest that it can be.
My family and I enjoy gardening and each  year we try something different.  This year we started growing our seeds in 2 liter bottles that we used to create terrariums.   One sunny afternoon we cut each of the 2 liters in half and then filled them with dirt.  The children got to choose which seeds they wanted to plant and then they poked holes in the dirt, placed in the seeds, covered them up and watered them before replacing the top of the 2 liter.

We anxiously waited for the seeds to turn in to seedlings and then into plants.  Once the chance of frost had passed we transplanted our plants in to our raised garden bed.  Here we used the Miracle-Gro LiquaFeed All Purpose Plant Food Advance Starter Kit to water and feed our plants.  Now we check them daily to see if any new vegetables have grown.

My family and I enjoy our little garden.  It is a way for us to connect through the whole growing process.  If you are a new gardener and want to grow your own story, then check out The Gro Project and Miracle-Gro on pinterest.  You are sure to find some inspiration there!
