I get so tired of hearing about all the actors, actresses and other celebrities going in and out of california rehabs. I really don’t care if they have drug or alcohol problems. Being a celebrity doesn’t make them any different than any other person in that respect. I hear about celebrities going to rehab constantly on the news, and it gets old.

Freschetta Pizza Giveaway!

This post brought to you by FRESCHETTA®. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

We are BIG pizza eaters in our house. I usually pick up a pizza for dinner at least once a week because of my late work schedule, and every Sunday night is frozen pizza night. We usually stick to one certain brand, but we’re always up for something new, so when I had the opportunity to try FRESCHETTA® By the Slice, I jumped at it! Since I don’t eat cheese on my pizza, and it would have been a waste to take the cheese off with all the great toppings, I let Joe try the pizza out. He loved it. He thought it was delicious and loved how the crust was crispy despite the fact that it was cooked in the microwave rather than the oven. It was so convenient to just pop it in the microwave, and it was nice to have the option of just eating one slice. And, there are a lot of varieties — BBQ Chicken, Vegetable Medley, Six Cheese Medley and the one Joe tried, Chicken, Spinach and Mushroom.

Win a Betty Crocker Prize Pack!

We LOVE mashed potatoes in our house, but it’s always such a hassle to peel, cut and boil potatoes before mashing them. Most of the time, I really don’t think it’s worth all the work. However, I am NOT a fan of instant mashed potatoes. They just don’t have a great taste to me.

Then, I found out about Betty Crockers loaded mashed potatoes. I was sent the loaded mashed potatoes with bacon, sour cream, cheese and chive flavors and, while it wasn’t something I’m able to eat, it was definitely something my husband could enjoy. And, there are nine flavors to choose from, including four cheese and sweet potato.

One of my readers is going to get a chance to try a box of Betty Crocker’s loaded mashed potatoes along with some other goodies. All my readers can print off a coupon to try the loaded mashed potatoes here.

What you win:
A box of Betty Crocker loaded mashed potatoes, a mixing bowl, a magnetic hanging pot holder, silicone spoonula and measuring cup.

How to enter:
1. Leave a comment telling me which flavor of Betty Crocker loaded mashed potatoes you would like to try.
2. The giveaway ends at 11 p.m. EST on Monday, May 2.

Easter Fun

After two Easter egg hunts, I think Lucy is all egged out!

The fun began last weekend with an Eggstravaganza with other kids from Lucy’s Sabbath School class. Her assistant Sabbath School teacher hosted it at her parents’ house, and it was a lot of fun.

This morning, Lucy woke up to find her Easter baskets, one from us and the smaller one from Joe’s parents. Our basket to her was a “B” basket because it contained books, balls and bubbles — three of Lucy’s favorite things. She was super excited!

Later in the morning, we had a little Easter egg hunt in our front yard. Lucy was pretty good at picking out the eggs without a whole lot of help from us.

It’s been a fun couple of weeks. Next, I’ll have to tell you about meeting Jars of Clay!

Happy Easter!

Spring Getaway

This post brought to you by Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am dying to get away. Summer vacation can’t come soon enough, and I’d love to take a fun little spring trip somewhere. 

I’ve been wanting to go to Branson for some time now. I keep hearing that it’s a great tourist destination, and they have some pretty fun things to do. If we took a little trip there, we’d hit some of the amusement parks and family attractions, and I’d love to see some of the shows (if we could find something to do with Lucy, that is!). And, the Missouri Food and Wine festival would be a lot of fun as well.

Of course, I’d want to stay at either the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel or the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing. I love Hilton hotels, and they’re always my first choice when we’re booking a trip. And, both are offering great deals to entice people to visit. The packages include two adults and two childrens tickets for two days at Silver Dollar City. They also include a $25 voucher for Level 2 Steakhouse at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. The 3-day package starts at $455, which sounds like a pretty good deal to me.

I don’t think we’re going to be able to get away next spring, but maybe we will next year. It can be our tax refund gift to ourselves!
