Dance Central deal & question

I’ve got Xbox on the brain of late (gee, I wonder why?!) but I keep seeing this game and I think it looks like


Does anyone have it?  I know this is a great deal on it, but I also want to know how it IS to actually play!

Dance Central (This comes with 240 Microsoft points plus free shipping)






I think I realized I simply hate traditional exercise.  I’ll do it if I have to, but if I can dance the pounds away, I’d much prefer to do that, you know?  Since this is a Kinect game, I won’t have to hold anything, and the kids can dance along with me.  Thoughts?

Truvia Natural Sweetener- What a Mom Wants (May 7)

Truvia natural sweetener is a great tasting, natural, zero calorie sweetener made with rebiana, the best tasting part of the stevia leaf. Not only can be it be used to sweeten coffee/tea and cereal/fruit, but you can also cook with it.  Check out for several great recipes, including tasty dishes from Celebrity Chefs Sam Talbot and Marisa Churchill!


I tried some of the Truvia in my coffee-  its not my sugar…but it was sweet and didn’t leave a longlasting aftertaste like so many other sweeteners do.  I do like that there’s no texture with the Truvia.  If you don’t know by now I have a “thing” about food textures.  While this is not my favorite sweetener (I honestly would just rather have regular sugar, in lower quantities) its definitely a better option than other non calorie sweeteners and I think its definitely worth trying!!

Tobey (the Bargains dog) and I are Pedigree Ambassadors!

Tobey is our canine family member.  He’s 10 years old, a yellow lab mix, and the sweetest dog in the world.  He might also be the friendliest!!  Tobey is going to be trying  PEDIGREE® Adult Complete Nutrition for Dogs

for the next 6 weeks and I’ll be sharing the results of this change with you over the course of a few posts.
We assessed Tobey based on Four Universal Needs: Skin&Coat (average), Oral Care (average but horrible doggie breath), Digestion (1-2 per day, normal), Immunity (very rarely).  Tobey’s pretty much always been right on target or within normal range for everything since we brought him into our family.  He’s just a love of a pooch and thankfully nothing very ‘exciting’ has happened in his years with us, with the exception of a few issues with dewclaws that were since removed.
We are  on day 2 of introducing the new food slowly, but he’s been eating as normal so I have to say, its a smooth transition so far!  Right now we’re doing 1/4 of his food as the Pedigree and the rest his normal foods.

I rode a bike this week.  Not a lot, but I rode a bike.  Me.  I didn’t even hyperventilate.  Of course, I was only going up and down the driveway.  But still.  I did it. I DID IT!

I also did some jumproping with my FitKit.  Again, not a lot, but some.  A start. I was pretty proud of myself for even trying.

Online shopping is here to stay.  It seems like there are more deal sites coming out daily.  I don’t mind them, and often purchase daily deals,  but its a lot of steps and clicking off site and isn’t as streamlined as  You’ll be seeing posts and links from me for deals I find that I think will interest you, my readers, from StuffBuff- what’s different about these deals is that you can add them to your cart for purchase right here, on This Mama Loves Her Bargains.  No clicking through to another site.  StuffBuff also offers free shipping on all items.  So the price you see is the price you pay!

Example: This Melissa & Doug Bibi Bee Sunny Patch Watering Can is $8.99.  Click on Stuff it and its yours!! You’ll always know just how many of an item is left right next to the button.  Easy, peasy!!  No need to open another window or anything.
