This post brought to you by Florida Department of Citrus. The content and opinions expressed below are that of this mama loves.

Now that you have had a few months to put your New Year’s resolutions into practice, how are you doing? This is the make it or break it time when people are either sticking with them or are ready to quit (or have already quit.) With weight loss and healthy living being the top resolutions people make, it is easy to see why people can have a tough time sticking with them. Adding enough fruits and vegetables into your daily diet is part of a healthy way to lose weight. By adding 100% Florida Orange Juice, you can easily get your RDA of your 5 servings.  


With each 8 ounce serving of 100% Florida Orange Juice you will find something # …an “Amazing 5” to be exact! The Amazing 5 benefits inside 100% Florida Orange Juice are taste, no added sugar, and being a great source of vitamin C, potassium and folate. As a busy mom, I know how important a healthy diet for my family is and how tricky that can be. Now, I can add just one 8 ounce serving, any time of the day!   

I will be Co-hosting a super fun #AmazingInside Florida Department of Citrus Twitter party on 3/4/2015 from 1:00pm-2:00pm EST. You can win (and you must attend to win as winners are announced throughout the party.) Be sure to use the Hashtag: #AmazingInside

#Flipp4Holidays #TwitterParty! 12/16

People who are using Flipp this holiday season are finding what they need at the best prices. You’ve got to love an app that saves you time and money. I have much love for things that help me spend smart and not waste overspend in one place because I didn’t have time to check into sales or promotions.

Obviously you want to be able to search for deals.  But the discount finder helps you further and you  may just find (as I have) that you discover some surprise discounts along the way!

You can download Flipp at:

Proof of Santa! #ProofofSanta #TwitterParty 12/9

I remember when I was little and my brother Brian started doubting Santa was real. I don’t know if you are aware of this but my mom was Christmas crazy and she took all things related to the holiday very seriously. That year, Santa had some sleigh issues up on our roof (of a 4 story Victorian house) and had to take a break to assess the situation. He even had a pipe on the roof. The proof of Santa was needed.  It was shown.

Now, I have an almost 9 1/2 year old and I can tell she’s starting to question things. I want a few more years of the innocence still, and yes, I will do what I can to keep it going. We have elves, and are having lots of fun with that this year, but I think we need a little bit of extra help.

That’s where the Santa Spy Cam app comes in. Santa Spy Cam an actual APP (and it’s a free download)  that allows parents to show their own kids proof of Elf and Santa visits in THIER home.  Grab it in iTunes and/or Google Play! 

It is indeed a FREE download, with a free “demo” to test drive the app. Then there’s a $3.99 charge to “unlock” all 37 scenes. Which works out to be less than $14 cents per scene, including the 6 Santa visits. In other words, Christmas magic for less than the price of a peppermint mocha latte :)


The folks at Santa Spy Cam have hired me to host a Twitter Party to spread the word about this super fun app. Opinions are my own.



Want to know more? I did. Come join us on Tuesday, December 9 from 9-10 pm EST for a #proofofsanta Twitter party!  We’ll be chatting about the  “Ultimate “Proof of Santa” video app, Santa Spy Cam 2. The designers of the app will share how it works so we parents can get some proof!

Check out the adorable video the Santa Spy Cam folks make of my Twitter page. I love love love it. Elves on Twitter Avatars
