Walmart Brings DiGiorno Pizza for Your Football #GameTimeGoodies #shop #cbias

I am a member of the Collective Bias®  Social Fabric® Community.  This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper amplification for Collective Bias and its advertiser.

What were you doing last Sunday?  In my home, during the football season, one never has to ask that question because Sunday is game time fun day!  The tradition of watching football has been carried on since I was a young girl and I am happy to have passed it on to my kids.  We try to get all of our "chores" done beforehand because when the games come, nothing else will get done!  That's right, no cleaning, laundry or even cooking during the football games; just cheering!  But we have to eat at some point and what food goes best with football?  Pizza!  It is quick, easy and DELICIOUS!

Be A Voice 4 The Children: Help Raise Awareness For Childhood Cancer


What do you want to be when you grow up?

"Mommy, I want to be a Zoo Keeper when I grow up!"  "Mommy, I want to be a Fire Fighter."  Mom, I want to be The President of The United States when I grow up!"  "Mommy, I want to have a chance to grow up."  What??? Now, that is just silly...  Or is it?

My GREATEST fear is that one day, one of my babies might become ill.  With every prayer I say, every birthday candle I blow out and every coin I throw into the wishing well; I wish, hope and pray for my children's good health.  But for some parents their worst nightmare has come true, their child is sick.  Their child has cancer.

Cancer will kill 7 kids in the United States today.  TODAY!  Today, 46 kids will be told they have cancer!  It is the #1 killer in children under the age of 14; killing more kids than AIDs, asthma, diabetes, congenital abnormalities and cystic fibrosis COMBINED.  1 in 300 Boys and 1 in 333 girls are affected with pediatric cancer and of those kids diagnosed, 1 in 5 WON'T survive!

Despite these huge numbers, only 4% of the National Cancer Institutes funding is used for Pediatric funding!  It is sad, our children deserve more from us.  We have to do something about it, we have to stop it now because your child could be next.

Please watch the video, I dare you to not shed a tear.

Nuclear Cowboyz: Review of the Motorcross Show

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.

 Last weekend my boys went to see the Nuclear Cowboyz show that came to St. Louis Scottrade Center.  As you can tell they were all pumped up to see it, finally a show for the boyz!!  Since this was a total "guys" type show, I thought I would let the husband write up a little review of it.  Here is his take:

Zaycon Foods Coming to the St. Louis in February: Fresh Chicken in Bulk

Disclosure:  I was given free product for review purposes.  However, all opinions on Zaycon Foods are my own.

They say you are what you eat, if that was the case then I would be clucking away all day long.  It is true, I love my chicken and it is a HUGE staple in my diet.  You've probably figured that out already if you were to visit my recipe board.  Because I am such a chicken lover, I try to buy my chicken in bulk quantities.  I usually opt at shopping at Sam's to purchase my chicken but the drawback is you have to have a membership to shop there.  This is why I was totally excited when I heard about Zaycon Foods!

So what is this Zaycon Foods all about?  Well, it is a unique service in which food is delivered straight from the processor and directly to the consumer.  This allows one to bypass the mark-up at the grocery store and ensures freshness of the meat!  The chicken is delivered in it's original wholesale packaging and can be purchased by the unit.  Each unit is 40 pounds of chicken, that's a lot of chicken!!  My favorite part?  Not only are the chicken breasts large but they are also 100% natural!  The chicken delivered by Zaycon Foods contain no hormones, additives or artificial ingredients.  The next best thing?  The price of course, $1.89 per pound is an awesome deal!!

So what are you waiting for?!  Go to Zaycon Foods and sign up to see when an event is coming to your area!  Although chicken is their most popular item, Zaycon Foods also offers turkey, ground beef, pork, fish, and a few other non-meat items!

I will be attending the event on February 8th, I will let you know how it went!

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.

My kids absolutely love live shows, especially live shows which bring characters they love to life on the big stage.  Last year they attended Disney on Ice 100 Years of Magic and Phineas and Ferb Live!  Every time we attend one of these shows, I can not help but notice how my kids faces light up with excitement!  You're only young once and I always encourage exposing your kids to situations which let their imagination soar.  That is why I am totally excited to bring mine to the Pirate and Princess Adventure.  Don't miss out on it, it will be one to remember!

Car Seat Laws for 2014: Graco AFFIX Booster Seat Leads in Car Seat Safety

Disclosure:  I was given this product free for review purposes.  However, all opinions on Graco are my own.

As a parent, I know that if there is one thing I was always questioning is was if I am providing the safest environment for my children.  Before they were born, I was constantly researching all of the latest safety guidelines that were in place to keep kids safe but it seems like these guidelines are constantly changing.  In fact this year, a law that was instilled in 2001 that required all children up to 65 pounds must remain in latched car seats has been amended.

"Starting in 2014, the new rule states that the LATCH system should no longer be used when the child and car seat combined weight is over 65lbs.
This is an amendment to the law instated in 2001 that says that all children up to 65lbs must remain in car seats, but that did not take into account the weight of car seats. Car manufacturers cannot guarantee the strength of the anchors when adding the additional weight of the seat, thus the need to modify the law."

Not only is it important to know the requirements in safety recommendations but it also important to know the safest equipment to use.  And when I think of the leader in car seat safety, I think of Graco!
