Kellogg's Fiber Plus Bars

Do you like Girl Scout cookies? Who doesn't? For me, you can't get any better than the Samoas. Unfortunately, the Girl Scouts only set up shop outside Walmart once a year. So unless you drop your life's savings on a year's supply, you have to do without that perfect mix of coconut, caramel and chocolate for 11 months. Until now! During a recent trip to Pathmark I was perusing the granola bar aisle when I came across these beauties. I am always instantly drawn to anything containing coconut, so I picked up a box of Kellogg's Fiber Plus Bars, Caramel-Coconut-Fudge. Little did I know, these bars would be the missing link to my months of longing for the Samoas to return. They taste exactly like their Girl Scout counterpart, minus the cookie crunch. And at only 120 calories and 9g of fiber per bar, they are a healthier alternative too. Even when the Samoas (150 calories for 2 cookies) make their next appearance, I will definitely still opt for the Kellogg's bar.

Diamond Dazzle Stik

Diamond Dazzle Stick's facebook page was offering samples a few months back and I thought I would give it a shot.

I used it for the 1st time the other day. I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I was really surprised how well it worked and how super easy it is to use. All you have to do is wet the brush and twist the top a few clicks until you see the cleaner then brush on.
With all the hand washing and instant hand soap I use during the day, my rings are just a mess. After 1 application my rings look just as good as the day I pick them up from the jeweler after a cleaning! Just as their logo states...It "brings out the bling".

Cuponk (Hasbro)

Nathan and Colby were both begging for Cuponk for Christmas. I didn't even know what they were talking about. So after some research I was on a mission to find the game.

The boys were over joyed on Christmas morning.

They opened it immediately and began trying out all the different ways to get the ball in the cup. (There are game cards included in the package of all different ways you have to try and get the ball into the cup, i.e. bounce off a wall, throw the ball over your shoulder, etc. ). If you get the ball in the cup it lights and up sounds go off (depending on which version you have...this one has gorilla sounds)

Needless to say this "Cup" has kept the boys busy for hours already. They have already started to come up with their own ways to try and get the ball in the cup.
(Age on the box says 9 and up. But both my boys really enjoy it at 3 and 5).

(Coupon note: Cuponk was on sale at Target from $14.99 to $7 and there was a hasbro printable coupon for $5.00 off...making this a great deal at $2.00. Also I was able to score extra balls for the Cuponks on for $0.90 each! )
