Alpina Yogurt Smoothies

My kids are already fans of yogurt which I like the ones which you can drink because its a great breakfast for them in the morning as we run around getting ready.


Alpina, has come out with new Low Fat yogurt Smoothie which is made with 1% milk fat. I love that on the Alpina yogurts you can read and know what your eating. The smoothies are great tasting treats which are both yummy but also healthy for you. Did you know that the more yogurt you have in your diet the less likely you are to get sick? I have seen it with my own eyes my mom eats yogurt daily and when the flu comes along she comes over to help so while my whole family is sick she is able to stay healthy and not once catch the flu.

Alpina Smoothies come in 4 yummy flavors: Strawberry, Vanilla, Mango and Strawberry Banana. My oldest son is picky about eating and one of his favorite things is strawberry banana smoothies from McDonalds, but they cost a lot so its nice to have Alpina yogurt smoothies as a cheaper option and better for him.

I love Alpina Smoothies when I have to work its a great start to my day and since it is drinkable its a fast meal to go.  Alpine also has other great products like Bon Yurt which is a fun way to mix in some of your favorite cookies with your favorite yogurts. You can see the whole line of Alpina by clicking here.

No more waiting...................Peeps 24/7


So like most holidays you have something that you might wait for which one of the things I would look forward to is Easter because this is when Peeps would come out.



No more! I no longer have to wait for Easter I can now purchase Peeps year round! Peeps has come out with Peeps Mini's which is a 24 count of yummy goodness. The new Peeps Mini's come in Vanilla, Strawberry, Watermelon and Chocolate.


I love pretty much all things Watermelon and I already love me some Peeps so how great was it that now I can get Watermelon Peeps year round. The Peeps Mini's are about half the size of a normal Peep but they have just as much if not more flavor than that of a average Peep. The Chocolate Peep Mini's are great in hot chocolate it adds to the chocolate flavor but also makes it a more thicker creamy treat. I love Peeps on their own but I also love to eat them in fun other ways like, crispy treats, or smores oh the possibilities are endless.

You can purchase Peep Mini's at Walgreens, and other retail stores. Wanna find Peep Mini's now click here!

Enter to win 3 bags of Peeps Mini's, contest ends August 7, 2014 and open to U.S. residents only.

State Farm Emergency Prepared Kit


During the Summer lots of families seem to take vacations whether it be for a week or a weekend your most likely gonna drive and State Farm wants to make sure your prepared for what could happen on the roads ahead. 


Before logging all those miles on your family road trip this summer, remember to:
  • Beat the Heat: Inspect the radiator, pressure cap, belts, and hoses to make sure they are in good shape with no signs of blisters, cracks, or cuts in the rubber.
  • Hydrate Your Vehicle: Check fluid levels: brake, automatic transmission, power steering, windshield washer and coolant. Make sure each reservoir is full and if you see any sign of fluid leakage, take your vehicle in to be serviced.
Before any longer trip, any time of year, remember to give your vehicle a check-up:
  • Check the air pressure in all tires, including the spare,
  • Make sure the wiper blades are functioning properly,
  • Check battery life and inspect batteries and battery cables,
  • Inspect brake pads and linings for wear; change the oil and filter according to manufacturer’s service interval specifications, and
  • Test the headlights, brake lights, turn signals, emergency flashers and interior lights
Move the beach gear over for the roadside emergency kit:


Even if you’ve prepared your vehicle for summer travel, it never hurts to have a "just in case" kit in your trunk. Your emergency kit should include:
Summer Driving Tips
  • Jumper cables
  • Flashlight
  • Emergency flat tire repair
  • Gloves, blankets and towels
  • Hazard triangle, road flares, brightly colored distress sign, or "Help" or "Call Police" flag
  • Screwdrivers and wrenches
  • First aid kit
  • Cell phone and charger
  • Water for both the car radiator and your family
  • High-calorie, non-perishable food
Traveling with kids:
  • Always use proper safety restraints
  • Use the long drive as teaching moments about safe driving
  • Pack a cooler with healthy snacks like water, fruit, nuts and granola
  • Stop every few hours to let the kids stretch their legs
  • Adults should take the time to exit the vehicle and stretch too.  If you become drowsy, don’t hesitate to pull over to a safe location and rest until you feel able to continue the drive
  • Use electronic devices to help keep away the boredom on the long drives
Make sure to check and stock trunk supplies twice a year and remember never leave on a road trip with your vehicle’s "check engine light" or "malfunction indicator light" lit up. If you take these precautions, you and your vehicle might be happier on the roads this summer. And don’t forget to have fun!
I know there were more than a few helpful hints in this article from State Farm. I myself have kids and always wished I had the sto and go in the Town and Countries because I would make sure one side was set with drinks and snacks in case something like a accident or flat happened. I think most of us take our cars for granted and simple things like the helpful hints above can really save us one day. One more thing to make not of is lets say the your not able to move or talk the ER/Police on the scene will normally go through your phone trying to contact someone to let them know what has happened it is smart to have someone which you count on as a ICE contact which is your In Case of Emergency contact this helps whoever find someone who will be able to come to your side. 



State Farm has given me a Emergency prepared Kit to share with my readers. One winner will win the kit, contest is open to U.S. residents only and will end August 5, 2014.
