Tasty Tuesday - Green Giant Multi Grain Chips

disclaimer: I did receive a free product to test through BzzAgent in exchange for an honest review, ALL opinions are my own along with the minnie testers who also voiced original and honest opinions.

Green Giant Multi grain chip Review (thanks to BzzAgent!!!!)


I was so excited when I received the email stating I had gotten the bzz Campaign to try and share about the Green Giant Multi grain Sweet Potato chips with Sea Salt and also the Roasted Veggie Tortilla chips with Zesty Cheddar!

I got the box and I can not tell you how much happier I was to be opening these healthy chips opposed to the greasy potato chips or the candy My kids' are always asking for.  We got a 5 oz. bag of the Zesty Cheddar, which the kids' tore right into (I almost didn't get to try those ones!) and 5 0.8 oz bags of the Sea Salt, and also a 5 oz. Sea Salt bag, those ones I had plenty of opportunity to eat as it took several tries to get my kids' to try them but, now they are disappearing as well!

Zesty Cheddar (the favorite pick for my family) has (in the 5 oz bag) 17 g whole grain, 0g trans fat, made with REAL VEGGIES, and 30% less fat than regular potato chips (10g per 28 g serving).

Sea Salt has (in the 5 oz. bag) 14 g whole grain, 0 g trans fat, made with REAL SWEET POTATOES and 40% less fat than reg. potato chips (10g per 28 g serving)

These are a healthier snack option, made by a brand that i personally already trust!! We have Green Giant veggies all stocked up in the cabinet and freezer.  LOVE the brand and LOVE the new product!!

Now from the minnie reviewers:

My 10 year old daughter said:
  "I LOVE these (Zesty Cheddar) I just can't stop eating them!!!  I think I could eat all of these by myself.
(Sea Salt) Well I don't know if I really like these (first chip) a few chips later....mmmm, these are pretty good mommy!! End of the bag: Mommy, would it be OK if I had another small bag of these chips?"

My 8 year old daughter:
"The Zesty Cheddar are OK but, I really don't like the Sea Salt (after a small nibble)
 I said: stick a whole chip in your mouth, give it a chance!! 
 she said: "That's not too bad when you eat it all."
 me: Do you want a small bag for your snack?"
her: " thanks!"

My 7 year old daughter:
"I like both of these they are really good!! Can you buy these at the store??!!"

My 3 year old son:
"Mommy these chips are good, my need more" (Zesty Cheddar)
(Sea Salt)" My not like these, here you have it"

The opinions crack me up and I love sharing all of these opinions with yall!!  They are very direct and very honest and now it is my turn to be honest!

I really liked the Zesty Cheddar also and I will not lie to yall I was afraid to try the Sweet Potato Sea Salt because I do NOT like sweet potatoes AT all!!  I made the kids' try them and I started feeling guilty so I tried them also and, Yall they are pretty good!!! I couldn't believe it!  I am not big on the sweet potato so i wouldn't sit and eat a whole bag (Thank you Green Giant and A VERY big your welcome to you but, If you would like a healthier option to your potato chip snack, you have just found it in the Green Giant Veggie Chips!!

Fantastic product and I look forward to stocking my cabinet with these!!!!

Funky Friday - Lego Wii Games

Lego Wii Games
disclaimer:  I received nothing in exchange for this post.  These are all products purchased by my household and I just wanted to share my opinion of these games.
Are you looking for a fun, family-friendly game that keeps the adults and the kids in the household equally entertained?  Well I (mommy in PA) have been playing these great Lego Wii games with my son for years.
The Lego Wii games are each based on a certain movie, if you've already seen the movie the games will be a bit easier to complete because you will already have a rough idea of what you are doing.  The ones we have are Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga, Lego Star Wars III The Clone Wars, Lego Indiana Jones The Original Adventures, Lego Indiana Jones 2 The Adventure Continues, Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4, Lego Harry Potter Years 5-7, Lego Pirates of the Caribbean The Video Game, and Lego The Lord of The Rings. 
These are perfect for kids who get frustrated with your typical hero games that give you so many lives and then you have to start over.  The only time you have to start over in these games is if you want to or if your kid accidentally deletes your entire 100% completed game (this has happened to us before).  There is even the ability to "drop out" if something comes up that one of you has to stop playing for a minute, the other player can easily continue without you and the computer will play your character until you return.  This function also comes in handy for the tougher parts in the game when one of you can't seem to get past a certain part you can have that player "drop out" and let the computer get past the tricky part.
These games are also great for kids because they don't have your typical video game style violence.  When your character attacks another character in these games the character simply falls apart into individual Lego pieces and studs (the game currency) falls on the ground for you to collect.  This also happens when your player gets attacked but your player comes back after just a couple of seconds. 
My son and I both love smashing all the Lego objects that we can in every level.  We are always trying to get as many studs as we can because if you get enough studs in a level you get a bonus.  Also there are certain things in each level that will earn you bonus abilities (example:  Find and smash all 10 bright green cacti in the level and receive a bonus ability). 
These games are well worth the price too as they allow for hours and hours of game play.  Once you make it completely through a level you can always return to it to complete it using different characters that you will unlock on other levels.  There are certain skills each type of character can perform (example: girl characters tend to be great jumpers).  It is always fun going back through a level with a new skill to get all the stuff you missed the first time around. 
Last but not least are the cute little cartoon movie clips that show up when you complete a level.  It has the Lego people acting out certain scenes of the movie and they are always quite comical. 
These really are great games and we are always anxiously awaiting the next title to be released!

Thrifty Thursday

disclaimer: I received nothing for this post but did find the general idea at

Hair Accessory Organization

If yall are anything like me (mommy in Ga) You walk in your bathroom (my 3 girls share one with their little brother) and you get SO tired of finding ponytails, earrings, Bobbi pins, headbands, hairbrushes etc... ALL over your bathroom, or shoved in a drawer that won't close!!!! That is where I am and I know with 3 it is only going to get worse as they get older!  So, I was on pinterest and came across this link : and saw these

love this denim organizer with pockets for camp, hanging off of bunkbeds, etc.

and I thought to myself: THAT is my solution and I have all of the stuff here and do not have to buy a thing!!!  It took a few days (20 minutes here and there between the craziness of house cleaning and tending to the little ones!)  So: I will post a pic and below that tell you how easy it was!!

I had these old jeans laying around the house (holes in the knees and a little rough looking!) and the little pockets I made by cutting up a skirt that got too small for the girls' but, they ALL loved it when it fit them!  I sewed the pockets to fit the hair straightener and ponytails, hairbrush and clips etc..  I used the existing pockets to hold the Bobbi pins and the tie around the waist can hold your headbands :)  Along the side of the jeans I took the lacey hem from the skirt and sewed it down the side and that is where we keep our earrings that are forever going missing or being left on counter tops or desks and so on!  Very cheap and not very time consuming to make, and also my friend Dawn at check it out with dawn , pointed out it would have been easier and faster to use a GLUE GUN!!!!!  Think mommy in Ga think!!! LOL.
I hope this was helpful and that some of you will try it out, if you do PLEASE feel free to post a pic or tell us how it helped out!!!

Tasty Tuesday - Campbell's Go Soup

Campbell's Go Soup
disclaimer:  I received this product and coupons for free from Smiley360 for the purpose of this review.  All opinions remain my own original thoughts.

Thanks to Smiley360 I (mommy in PA) received a package of the NEW Campbell's Go Soup to try.  Here is the list of flavors that it comes in:
      Moroccan Style Chicken with Chickpeas
      Golden Lentil with Madras Curry
      Creamy Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda
      Coconut Curry with Chicken and Shitake Mushrooms
      Chicken & Quinoa with Poblano Chilies
      Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken with Black Beans
  I wasn't really sure if any of these flavors would appeal to me as I am a typical tomato, mushroom, chicken noodle kind a gal but figured I'd give it a try anyway.  They sent me the Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken with Black Beans.  Now I have never eaten a black bean in my life until now (at least that I know of) but that's only because I didn't know what I had been missing.
  The Campbell's Go Soup was very easy to prepare.  They make it so all you do is tear across the top of the pouch so that it has an opening for the steam to vent out.  Pop it in the microwave for two and a half minutes, wait for it to cool down a bit, pour it in your bowl, and enjoy. 
  Just look at the texture of this soup!!!  I loved how you could tell exactly what you had in each spoonful.  I have to admit the corn and chicken pieces were my favorite.  My only complaint is it was a tad bit on the spicy side for my tastes but that just made me eat less at one time : )
  To find out more about Campbell's Go Soup you can check out their facebook page or go grab some at your local grocery store.
