I am back! Did you miss me?!! We had a great time on our cruise and there will be plenty of fun posts from me on this great Disney cruise.
In the meantime, come link up any cute or funny post. Definitely check out the other blogs who link up as they all provide a great laugh. Feel free to take my button or share on social media although this is not necessary, just appreciated.
My top five laughs:
5. Taylor is a crawling machine these days. I turn for a minute and she has something in her mouth or climbing on something. Yesterday I found her in the bathroom toilet. I guess it is time for locks again!
4. Taylor is also really proud of herself with trying to get up. Every time she gets up, she yells UP! It is really so cute!
3. Hayley and Zane did not feel well this week. Both of them laid in bed and were actually very quiet. I told them I liked them like that (not sick..just quiet) and they responded that they love to be loud and give me a headache. Haha!
2. Zane knows all his months in Spanish. I asked him where he learned and he told me Dora. I had no idea he still watched Dora.
My kids love Gerber Graduates. In fact, I’ve fed the Gerber Graduates line to all three of my kids. It’s a line of healthy foods that allows children to move from baby food to regular food without taxing their systems. They’re also healthy. I’d rather feed my daughter, Taylor, Gerber Graduates than a cookie or other unhealthy snack.
Gerber Graduates Make Win-Win Moments
If you’re a parent you know how wonderful toddlers can be. You also know that they can be little demons as well. It’s so wonderful to watch them explore and try new things. It’s another matter altogether to tell them no or make them stop doing something. Boy, can they get angry! That’s why I love Gerber Graduates. They taste great. Which means the kids love them. Which means I don’t have to say no! All I have to do is give Taylor a Lil’ Stick when she points to a cookie and she is very happy!
My youngest daughter, Taylor, is just getting into Gerber Gradutes. She’s enjoying the transition and so am I. She’s always been a good eater, which I love, because picky eaters can be difficult. Taylor just eats whatever I give her. That’s just another reason for me to give her something that’s healthy and delicious rather than something she really doesn’t like very much.
Lately, she’s been very into the Gerber Graudates Lil’ Sticks and Fruit Pick-Ups. Those are her absolute favorite. I’m happy to give them to her. I give her a few of each, and she has a great source of delicious protein and fruit which is so good for her. And the way she smiles! There’s nothing quite as great as watching your child make a huge mess with their first forays into big girl or boy foods, all the while having a huge grin plastered across their faces. That’s my Win-Win Moment!
Gerber wants to know what your Win-Win moments are. Right now you can show them your Win-Win Moment, and get some neat gifts. All you have to do is buy 10 Gerber Graduates products and upload a photo of your receipt to GerberWinWin.com, and you’ll get a free custom bib for your child along with colorful NUK accessories to help create more meal time Win-Win Moments.
Gerber Graduates is a great option for introducing the little ones to big kid foods without worrying that you’re giving them something unhealthy. It’s also a great way to give your children something delicious and nutritious, and now it’s also a great way to get some pretty cool swag. So snag some Gerber Graduates and get your own bib and NUK items today!

I recently had the opportunity to review the ASUS Memo Pad 7, and I was pleasantly pleased with the experience. It’s an economy tablet, but since it’s from ASUS, I knew it would be great. I have to say, when I fired it up and played with it for a bit, I was quite pleased with the power and functionality of this tablet.
ASUS Memo Pad 7 – A Beefy Tablet at a Poultry Price
As I said, the ASUS Memo Pad 7 is an economy tablet, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Personally, I’ve never seen the benefit of buying a $500.00 tablet that’s as powerful as my computer. I’m not playing a game like Call of Duty or the like on it, and I’m not running Photoshop. It’s a tablet. I use it for social media, game and productivity apps, and music. I don’t need an uber machine. I just need something that’s powerful and reliable. That’s what I got with the ASUS Memo Pad 7.
Don’t let the term economy tablet fool you. The ASUS Memo Pad 7 is a workhorse. Everyone in our family was able to run all of our favorite apps as well as some new ones that our old tablet didn’t support. It’s processing speed is more than adequate, it’s storage space is more than sufficient, and it supported every app that we wanted to use. It’s an economy tablet that delivers a luxury experience.
Of course the kids were all about the games. I had barely had a chance to look it over before the kids snatched it up and installed several different apps on it. It downloaded and installed them quickly and easily with no hiccups and no annoying “your device in unsupported” messages.
After a couple of hours, I took it back to do some actual work on the tablet and I was thoroughly impressed. I had no problem installing a few of my favorite productivity apps and the like. I even took a few pictures to test out the camera quality and the pictures turned out wonderfully. The ASUS Memo Pad 7 delivered on all fronts for us, and I couldn’t be happier with it.
ASUS Memo Pad 7 Specs
The ASUS Memo Pad 7 packs quite a punch at a very low price, which I think is pretty cool. I’m not surprised really, ASUS is big time. They are known for the quality of their motherboards and other products, so I was certain the tablet wouldn’t disappoint. And it didn’t. Here’s a run down of the specs.
8GB or 16 GB memory
Micro SD card slot supports 64GB cards
WLAN802.11 b/g/n WiFi connectivity
2 MP front camera
5 MP rear camera with auto focus and 1080p video recording
2-in-1 audio jack
9 hour battery life
As you can see, the term “economy tablet” only pertains to the price of the ASUS Memo Pad 7. Make no mistake, this tablet is a powerhouse. Does it have the most of everything? Nope. Does it have to? Nope. I’m about form, function, and performance, not a trendy name and a high price. The ASUS Memo Pad 7 gave my family everything we wanted and nothing we didn’t. I truly love this tablet!
If you’re looking for a great tablet at an even greater price, the ASUS Memo Pad 7 is the tablet for you. And you can win one!

Did you know that child hunger is rampant in this country? It’s a sad truth. There are 16 million kids in this country who go hungry. That is a sobering number, and I for one, want to do anything I can to help ease that terrible burden of hunger. ConAgra wants to help, too. The ConAgra Foods Foundation has been fighting child hunger for more than 20 years!
Child Hunger is an Epidemic
This year, 16 million kids will know what it feels like to go hungry. 16 million. Think about that. 16 million little ones are out there right now with empty bellies, wondering where their next meal will come from. Wondering how much longer they’ll have to endure that gnawing ache in their middle that won’t go away. Wondering why it has to hurt so much. It hurts my heart in a way I can barely describe when I look at my three kids.
16 million is a huge number to wrap your head around, so look at it like this: 1 in 5 children is at risk for child hunger. The next time you’re out and about look around you. Count how many kids you see in your travels. At least a few of them are either living a life full of desperate hunger or well on their way to it. That’s just about the saddest thing I can think of.
That’s why ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation is so important. This multi-billion dollar food company is using its considerable weight to harness the power of America’s youth to tackle child hunger nationwide.
My daughter and I are doing our part to help in the fight against child hunger as well. We visited Child Hunger Ends Here for ideas about how we could help fight this horrible cloud laying across out country, and we decided to donate to the local food bank at our temple. We got a variety of non-perishables like Hunts vegetables, Snack Pack, Chef Boyardee, and Crunch ‘n Munch (one of Hayley’s favorites) and took them all to our temple. It’s a drop in the bucket, but enough drops can fill any bucket.
You Can Help End Child Hunger
My daughter and I donated to our local food bank, and you can help, too. Visit Child Hunger Ends Here to learn more about child hunger and get inspiration for ways that you can help in the fight against it. You can also learn more about ConAgra Foods’ approach to fighting child hunger which is so very important!
Child hunger is just about the most vicious thing I can think of for a child to have to endure, and we all need to do whatever we can to stop it. With our help, ConAgra Foods and the ConAgra Foods Foundation can make serious headway in the fight against child hunger. I encourage you to do whatever you can to help end the horror of child hunger, as well.
Some really exciting news too! There was one winner located near where I live! Joyme Joia from Providence, RI received a grant! Grant winners received $500 grants from the ConAgra Foods Foundation as part of generationOn’s “Make Your Mark” on Hunger campaign.
