May is National Celiac Awareness Month and Udi’s Gluten Free Foods wants to help raise awareness for this important health issue by spreading the word about Celiac Disease and its signs, symptoms, treatment options and resources. It is estimated that over 3 million people in the U.S. suffer from Celiac Disease and that 85% of those who suffer are either misdiagnosed or undiagnosed. Udi's goal is to help improve the diagnosis rate for Celiac Disease and to stop the unexplained suffering by spreading disease awareness.
If you or someone you know has Celiac Disease and are living a gluten free life, then you are in luck! I have been asked to share Udi’s Gluten Free Foods with you and I am amazed at the products that they have available.
Did you know that Udi’s Gluten Free Foods is the #1 gluten free baked goods brand? They revolutionized this category when they introduced the very first gluten-free bread that actually tasted and looked like “real” bread. Not only does Udi’s Gluten Free Foods make bread, but they also make bagels, buns, granola, cookies, muffins and cinnamon rolls, pizza and crust, brownies and muffin tops. Yum! Need I say more?
Udi's takes pride in making gluten free be delicious. While participating in this review, I have found that eating gluten free doesn't have to be boring or bland. I like that Udi's has such a wide variety of gluten free foods and that makes eating gluten free easier since you have so many products to choose from.
My favorite item that I have received from Udi's is their Soft & Chewy Dark Chocolate Brownie Bites! Not only are these bites gluten free but they are also soy and nut free too! They are smooth in texture and deep chocolate in taste. These definitely hit the spot when the cravings for chocolate arise.
You may find out more about Udi's on their website, facebook, twitter, and on pinterest. While you are on facebook, be sure to enter the Shake Your Udi's Sweepstakes. This sweepstakes will have one grand prize winner who will receive a $10,000 Udi’s Gluten Free Barbeque prize pack. This ends on June 7, 2013 so enter today! Good Luck!
Disclosure: I have received a box of samples from Udi's so that I may try their products for myself. All opinions are my own.

My younger child is 8 and she is in 3rd grade. I have been wanting to help her learn that our world is a big place and that many things happen outside of our town. In fact, a lot of life changing events happen often and these are things that will go down in the history books. It would be nice if both of my children were aware of "what happened" during their lifetime so that memories can be made and stories told later to their kids as well.
To help keep us up to date on world happenings during the summer I would like to use News-O-Matic app. This app is a week day educational newspaper app that covers the most current breaking news, sports, science and much more in an accessible and kid-friendly way. I like that News-O-Matic app is targeted to kids ages 7-10 and it includes five daily news stories, images, videos, illustrations, maps, timelines and even games. My goal is that both of my children can use and interact with the News-O-Matic app so that they can stay up to date on current events this summer. This will help them with their summer reading and it will also keep them informed of what is going on in the world around us.
Giveaway Time: One of my readers will receive a News-O-Matic goodie bag that features a $10 iTunes gift card, backpack, hats, water bottles and an iPad screen cleaner. Please enter this giveaway through the rafflecopter form below.

" Please see below for some tips from Dr. Phyllis Ohr, Child Psychologist for Press4Kids, on how parents can address news issues with children and what children can do to feel better:
1. When the event does not personally affect the child, reassure them that everything is okay with the people they love and that nothing has changed for them.
2. Be sure to stress to children that if they do have questions to ask parents, teachers as well as friends. Other children having the same feelings may be comforting.
3. Begin by giving the child a brief synopsis of what happened by using age appropriate language. Ask if there is something they want to know more about or if they need something explained further. If so, stick to pointedly answering their question or clarifying. Do not add on or digress.
4. Do not assume the news will make children feel a certain way. Ask if they know how they feel, but stress that kids feel all different ways when they hear important news and sometimes do not know how they feel or do not feel anything which is okay. However, if children are affected by it, it is their own feeling. Reassure children that no matter what they are feeling, their feelings are okay.
5. If they are upset but don't want to talk, suggest a fun activity for distraction or help them use calming skills like playing, drawing a picture or writing a story. These activities help release any upset feelings and make children feel better. "

I am a member of SocialSpark and we have teamed up with Scotts for this informative blog post. I am a homeowner and gardener so I am always looking for new gardening supplies that will help our yard and garden look its best.
We live in Texas and the weeds and wild flowers invade our yards and gardens. I am hoping that Scotts Nature Scapes mulch will us to prevent this infestation and to help us with our sustainable gardening plan. I like that Scotts Nature Scapes Mulch is a natural forest product that contains no waste wood and it comes in a variety of textures and colors such as Classic Black, Sierra Red, and Deep Forest Brown. Scotts Mulch also helps to maintain soil moisture, prevent weeds from growing, and create a well manicured landscape look all year long.
If you happen to live in Florida, then Scotts Florida Select Natural Eucalyptus Mulch would be for you! Florida Select Mulch is made from 100% Florida-grown Eucalyptus which is a sustainable Cypress alternative that is grown in Florida, for Florida use. This natural Eucalyptus Mulch is guaranteed to be free from construction, demolition, pallet, or other waste materials. This mulch also helps to prevent weeds naturally while helping to conserve soil moisture and moderate soil temperature at the same time.
To get the most out of your mulch be sure to spread it 3 inches deep on top of your soil. Keep the mulch several inches away from your tree trunks, house foundations and other wooden structures. Be careful and only apply it around trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables after the seeds have germinated and the plants have been fully developed.
I now have my list ready to get our yard and garden ready for spring. I will need Scotts Florida Select Mulch; flower seeds; vegetable seeds; a rake; a watering can and a small spade. Then I will be set!
I hope that this post and the pictures from pinterest have inspired you to get outside and to get your yard and garden ready for spring!
