Graduation Celebrations!!

This past week my family celebrated a few graduations.  First, I am very proud to say that my husband graduated from Radiology school.  Truth be told, it was a looonnnnng, boring ceremony but the highlight of the night was seeing my husband walk in the precession looking all cool with his shades on and giving the bull horns.

Skinny Beef Stroganoff Recipe


I sure do love me some Beef Stroganoff but what I do not like is the calories.  Yes, some of the best Beef Stroganoff recipes are packed with sour cream, oil and let us not forget the famous Campbell's soup cream of mushroom.  In other words, some of the best Beef Stroganoff recipes are filled with fattening ingredients.  But not today because Survival Guide by The Working Mom is here to bring you another "fattier" recipe and skinny it up for you!

Chucks O' Fruti All Natural Fruit Bars #FreshNFruti #cbias


Have you heard of Chucks O' Fruti, the all natural fruit bars?  If you haven't, then let me fill you in on what they are all about.  Fruti is an all natural fruit popsicle made with REAL fruit and offered in a variety of flavors such as the Caribbean mix fruit bars, the Pina Colada fruit bars and my favorite the Strawberry fruit bars!  The coolest thing about Fruti is that it contains a "fruit first formulation" which means their bars contain more fruit than any other ingredient!  And their fruit is not just your ordinary fruit but premium fresh fruit from around the world!  The awesomeness of Fruti does not stop there, their 100% natural fruit bars are also Non-GMO verified, gluten-free, vegan, kosher certified, does not contain high fructose corn syrup AND made in a peanut free facility.  Wow, I think they have all their healthy bases covered!

Happy Mother's Day Quotes


Mother's Day is upon us.  In honor of Mother's Day, I like to mail cards to loved ones to show much they are appreciated.  Now you must be thinking, being the blogger I am, I am a natural wordsmith.  No way, especially when it comes to witty little notes or sayings.  This is why I am always on the look out for a funny quote or saying.  So, I decided to compile a list of "Happy Mother's Day quotes" for those (like myself) who also struggle with coming up with the best Mother's Day quotes!

Cheap Wireless Plan with Walmart Family Mobile #FamilyMobileSaves #cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias®  and Walmart Family Mobile.  #FamilyMobileSaves #cbias #SocialFabric


I am one of those individuals that is always on the look out for the hottest deals and constantly looking for ways to save my household money.  So when I heard about Walmart's cheap wireless plan, I knew I had to check it out.  Frankly, I am surprised that I had not checked out other cheap wireless plans before this because I feel like I spend an arm and a leg just to pay my cell phone bill!  Let me first tell you a little about my current cell phone plan.
