Join the #AmazingInside Twitter Party 3/4!

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 

(1) $200 Visa Grand Prize + FDOC swag

#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.

Flipp is a circular aggregater app, which means they bring all your flyers to your mobile device. Two main features give you great reason to download this app- search and discount finder. 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:

#ChocolateHistory #TwitterParty 11/11

Ready to party? I am.  What’s the occasion?  Well, some of my favorite chocolates are going to be available for purchase where some of my other favorite chocolates are available for purchase.  What’s better than CHOCOLATE?

AHC Twitter party 1

Seriously, though.  Remember when I went to G Dub’s House? (Mount Vernon) or when Racquel went to Old Salem and Monticello?  Well, we’re so enamored with American Heritage Chocolate  and we KNOW you are too…

American Heritage Chocolate Apple Pancakes

so naturally, when we heard that American Heritage™American Heritage™ Chocolate will have a retail presence at M&M’S World® in Times Square, we got excited.  When we heard we were invited to GO there, we were giddy. When we were asked to host the Twitter Party, well, there was squealing. And whooping.  Because, chocolate.

american heritage chocolate

American Heritage™ Chocolate is the perfect baking chocolate and unique gifting option for the upcoming holiday season. It’s got the sweet, but it’s got a little spice, and it’s interchangeable with any chocolate called for in a recipe. It’s versatile and it’s historic- it’s what our ancestors enjoyed back in the day.

So the details, about the party?


Who: YOU! and all of your friends (at least the ones who are on Twitter)

What: Party, party party….

Where: Twitter.  #ChocolateHistory

Recap of the #ReadyforAnything Twitter party

This post brought to you by Triad Retail Media. The content and opinions expressed below are that of this mama loves.


If you missed the  #ReadyForAnythingTwitter party, let me tell you, it was a mess.  Or rather, we shared our messes. And how we use Angel Soft® facial tissues in oh so many ways to help with those messes.  We’ve all used facial tissues for blowing and wiping noses, but there are so many other ways we’ve used them!

You can use facial tissues to wipe drool (my littlest does this all the time. The record length of her drool to date is about 18 inches…)

  Steadying a wobbling table…  

Taking care of creepy crawlies…

Playing at a water park. Or IN water. Or around water. Or near it. Or thrown water..  

My Grama Evelyn used to keep a tissue tucked into her watch band.  Just in case. You really just never know…

So we came, we tweeted, we partied, and gave away prizes.

Don’t forget to head to Walmart to grab Angel Soft® tissue packs!

They conveniently fit in your purse making them available at home and on the go. Sad movie? Allergies? Is your little one wearing lunch on his face? Was there a juice box spill in the car, again? The everyday stuff that only a mom truly understands just got a bit easier thanks to Angel Soft® soft pack facial tissues.

Life’s Little Messes: #ReadyForAnything Twitter Party

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

Driving around doing errands this morning, going to swim lessons, eating lunch, visiting my dad, stopping for fresh corn today, I counted seventeen times I needed to wipe something or someone off.  That’s only since we left home this morning.  Life isn’t always neat and tidy, no matter how hard we try, and as a mom, I try to be prepared for those times.  Angel Soft® facial tissues are now available at Walmart in flexible, water resistant, durable packs. That means I can keep them in the van, the swim bag, the kids’ backpacks, without worry that a little wet towel or water bottle leakage will ruin the whole pack. It also means I’m prepared no matter if I have my own bag, or just the kids, because I always insist they each have a pack of tissues in their bags as well.


Angel Soft® tissue packs conveniently fit in your purse, camera bag, backpack, coat pocket, etc., making them available at home and on the goThat means they are at hand when you need them, on the go, when you don’t have all of your supplies from home on hand.

Since many of life’s little messes seem to happen before, during or after school… and its August, back to school time, we hope you’ll join us for the…
