Arctic Zero

To celebrate the first day of summer, my sweet friends at Arctic Zero sent over their Fit Frozen Desserts. We celebrated the longest day of the year with an ice cream party and water play.   ARCTIC ZERO Fit Frozen Desserts Pints are the perfect zero-guilt sweet treats for moms who care about clean ingredients. Each crave-worthy, low-calorie, lactose free pint is made with hormone-free whey protein and sweetened naturally with monk fruit, making it low in sugar. We sampled Cookie Shake, Cherry Chocolate Chip, Cake Batter, Salted Caramel, Rocky Road Trip and Peanut Butter Swirl. For the perfect creamy texture we let them thaw out for 15 minutes before digging in. Both kids and adults came back for seconds. 

We had so much fun! The ice cream was a delicious treat on this hot day and the slip and slide brought back such fun memories!

Happy summer, friends!

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion

Ever feel like this?

Unfortunately I do. Between my constant reach for more coffee and feeling sluggish through out the day I knew I needed to do something. I started small. I wake up, pop a NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion and drink tons of water. Only after I have taken my daughter to school I make a cup of coffee and drink water the rest of the day.

I love this product so much I even brought it to Jacob’s mommy and me class.

  During snack time I told them all the great benefits like, NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion has been specially formulated using three clinically tested probiotic strains to support women’s health through every stage of life. 

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion features L. rhamnosus HN001 and L. acidophilus La- 14 which have been shown to colonize the vaginal tract and help to maintain healthy vaginal pH when taken orally.

I even also shared that both the B. lactis HN019 and HN001 strains may help to support healthy immune system function in pregnant and nursing women. These mamas were super happy!HN019 also supports GI regularity and reduces occasional gas and bloating.

These specialized strains also support healthy, balanced immune system function in women of all ages.

NOW is one of very few supplement companies that is using technology to genetically verify their probiotics. They are using DNA- ngerprinting technology to guarantee the identity, potency, and purity of the bacterial strains used in their probiotic products, as well as help identify potential bacterial contaminants prior to production.

The Women’s Probiotic has 20 billion Colony-Forming Units (CFU) and has a guaranteed potency.

NOW Women’s Probiotic 20 Billion is vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free.

PACT Organic clothing

As a busy mama to two kiddos I’m always running around town. Last week I got to try my PACT Organic Clothing bundle and I couldn’t be more excited to tell you all about it.

I put my leggings, camisole and hoodie to the test. I went from taking my daughter to school on a chilly morning,    to a warmer Mommy and Me with my son,

to ballet with both kiddos,

and finally at home with the family.

After 10 hours of wearing the same outfit my PACT Organic clothes were still comfortable, soft and didn’t stretch out. I call that a win-win!

The hoodie was my favorite piece. The stripes were flattering, the hood was not to constricting and it had a thumb hook. Love it!

Not only does PACT Organic make super soft cotton clothing that is better for people, but it’s also better for our planet. PACT Organic uses organic farming practices that don’t pollute the soil or water while partnering with organizations that protect the well-being of the people who make the clothes.

Did you know?

Organic cotton uses 71% less water and 62% less energy than conventional cotton. Growing organic cotton keeps farmers and their families safe because they are not exposed to toxic chemicals.

My Pact Organic clothing bundle was so soft and comfortable! I want you guys to try it too. Click here or use my unique code: ChitChat25 and save 25% off your total!

Thomas’ Bagels

Did you know there is a Limited Edition Pizza Flavored Thomas’ Bagel in town? Me either!

So when Thomas’ Bagels company asked me to try them with a few of my friends, I knew inviting my neighborhood for a little early Valentine’s Day celebration would help spread the news. To go with our Valentine’s Day theme, I cut the tops off of each bagel to look like hearts.The kiddos arrived and started creating their pizzas.While we waited for the pizzas to bake, we made Valentine’s Day cards for hospitalized kids.

You can read more about it here.

I took this quick picture before all the hungry kiddos grabbed their pizza. They kinda, sorta look like hearts. We all thought the pizzas turned out so so good! Real pizza seasonings are baked right into the bagel kicked it up a notch. Now there’s a no muss, no fuss way to get your fix, anytime, anywhere, with their Limited Edition Pizza Bagels. Just top your heart’s content. But hurry – they’re only available for a limited time.

After our pizza party we hung out and played in the neighborhood. We ended the night with our Thomas’ Bagels swag bags.

So thankful for our little driveway. You guys are so much fun!

Farm Rich

Happy Super Bowl day!!

I don’t know much about football, but I love hanging out with friends AND eating. So when I get invited to Super Bowl party (or any party), I’m there!

To prep for the big day I got to test a few Farm Rich snacks.Our favorite Farm Rich Snack was the Mozzarella Bites.

Mozzarella Bites are crafted with authentic pizza crust and 100% real mozzarella cheese. Plus, they’re a great source of calcium and protein, and are microwaveable.

These soft little pillow cheese bites were amazing! My kiddos loved it too!

To kick it up a notch I made this cheesy snack even cheesier with a dip to go with it.All you need is a jar of your favorite pasta sauce and 1/2 a block of cream cheese. Microwave for 2 minutes and stir.Mmmm cheesy goodness!

Are you a Patriots fan or a Falcons fan?

Whatever team you are on I hope you enjoy the game and the all the snacks.Disclosure: This post was written as part of my participation in the BzzAgent program.
