Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents Built To Amaze: St. Louis Scottrade Center October 17-20

I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and opportunities to attend private Feld pre-Show events.

I've been to the circus once when I was small but it was an experience I have never forgotten.  The excitement and the magic of the circus is something that will forever be engrained in your little ones childhood memories!  This month (October 17th-20th) the circus is coming to the Scottrade Center in St. Louis and I am not going to miss it!  I can not wait to see the smiles on my kids faces!  Join me there...

A Healthy Smile, A Healthy You: Philips Sonicare PowerUp Electric Toothbrush & Giveaway #PowerUpUrSmile #shop #cbias

If there is one thing I have had my fair share of, it's dentist appointments!  I know, I know, the majority of people dread going to the dentist but my dread goes a little deeper than the normal fears.  I figure I have a high chance of making it into the Guinness Book of World Records for the amount of fillings I have in my mouth.  Really, every time I go for my normal dental check-up I find out I have some sort of problem with a filling or cavity.  For some reason, those nasty, cavity loving bugs just love my teeth (I think it's my love for/addiction to chocolate that attracts them so much)!

After watching this pretty entertaining video on the evolution of the toothbrush, I decided the best way to nip this tooth problem in the bud was a change in toothbrushes.  So, a few weeks ago I headed to the local Walmart to buy one of those fancy schmancy electric toothbrushes and I was going to spare no expense!  You can view my entire path to purchase on my Google+ photo album.

This post is sponsored by Yoplait but my love of fruit and good yogurt is 100% my own.

Since mornings at my home are usually filled with "Hurry, hurry, HURRY!", it is important that I have something quick and simple for breakfast.  The only problem with quick and simple, it can sometimes lead to bland and boring.  Not when Yoplait Fruitful and this delicious (and easy) parfait comes into play!

Skinnier Double Chocolate Zucchini Bread Recipe: Make A Smart Choice with Smart Balance Spreadables

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Smart Balance. I received product samples, and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

 I do not have a garden but many of my family members do and they are kind enough to share some of their produce from time to time (Or when I bug them!).  For some reason this year, zucchinis ran rapid in such gardens and I was given a plethora of them for my kitchen concoctions.  In the past I have made some snacks with my Zucchini meal endeavors, such as my Jalapeno Zucchini Chips but this time I wanted to sweeten things up a bit!  So, I decided to make not only Zucchini bread but a Double Chocolate Zucchini bread and of course I had to "skinny" it up a bit.
