Sunday, June 13, 2010—Be Heard. Be Happy.

I received 8 individual bags of Snikiddy Cheddar Baked Fries from to test out and to share! As soon as we got the box opened, the boys wanted to try them out! We let them open a bag to go with their sandwiches for lunch! I was impressed with the flavor.... not like national brand's cheddar chips and not "fake" tasting. The flavor wasn't over powering and I liked that the cheddar cheese didn't leave the boy's fingers orange. What I like most about Snikiddy is that these fries are all natural. Nothing to worry about when feeding your kiddos!

Check the website out and even print out a coupon!

Curious George LIVE!

My family and I had the privilege of going to Greenville, SC today to attend the opening day of Curious George LIVE!  When I was given the opportunity by Vee Corporation and the wonderful folks at U.S. Family Guide, I jumped at the chance because our boys watch Curious George on PBS Kids!

I was very impressed with the Bi-Lo Center, in Greenville, SC, where the event was held!  Everything was clean and there were so many kind event workers that were able to help us find our seats, etc.  Much better than our local event center!  Also, the seating that the center had roped off for the opening event, this morning, was quite close to the stage!  Even if you had gotten the "cheapest" tickets, you'd still be very close and the kids would still feel apart of the action!

This is the first live stage event for Curious George and it was definitely worth the trip!  Like I said, we are already fans of Curious George, but I thought the production was done wonderfully!  It reminded me a lot of the Thomas the Tank Engine LIVE event that we were able to attend last year.  The songs were catchy and beautifully sung.  The dancing and choreography kept the children engaged and attentive in the show!   During this production, Curious George is on a mission to help Chef Pisghetti save his restaurant!  I think most kids would definitely feel sorry for Chef Pisghetti, who was very upset during the production, but I looked over at my oldest, Bubbie and he was wiping his eyes!  My poor sensitive soul- was very sad for the Chef!  I assured him that the Curious George show ALWAYS has a happy ended and this wouldn't be any different.... and it didn't disappoint him!  Curious George saved the day!  And the ending was very cute!  Bubbie was so happy for the outcome!

This was such a blessing for our family and a huge thank you to U.S. Family Guide and Vee Corporation!  We had a wonderful experience attending this event and will have memories for a lifetime!

One eskimO Review

I was recently sent a new CD from the fine folks at One2One Network.  It is called One eskimO and I really enjoyed it!  I am all for trying new music and I was disappointed.  This cd is a wonderful mix of light pop, earthly/soulful and the type of music you normally hear in a coffee shop.  The first time I turned the CD on, I was working on the computer and it was a soothing background noise after a long, stressful day.  Definitely helped me unwind and de-stress!

To listen to some of their songs, go here.  My favorite was Astronaunt.  I really like the singer's voice, Kristian Leontiou.

Just in case you're interested, here are the tour dates:
