Feeling good on Friday (with a little help from this month's cravebox products)

This week the weather has been nice. Sunny blue skies, and 60 degree afternoon temperatures. People are out of their winter hibernation, taking walks, riding bikes. Today is it is windy and raining. At least it is Friday!

Two more finds in this month's Cravebox are thinkThin® bars and EBOOST®.

thinkThin® bars are nutrition bars. Low in sugar, high in protein, gluten free. The bar I tried this morning is Chocolate Dipped Mixed Nuts.

The bar tastes really fresh, the chocolate is good, and it's not too crunchy, not too chewy.This bar has 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber and only 3 grams of sugar and  190 calories. There are almonds, peanuts and cashews in this variety. The bar has a chocolate bottom layer.

The other variety of thinkThin bar in this month's Cravebox shipment is Creamy Peanut Butter. I am not much of a peanut butter type person, so  I am going to let another family member give this one a try. I gotta say I am a fan of the Chocolate Dipped mixed nuts bar. You can find thinkThin bars in stores and online at

For the morning beverage I gave  EBOOST®  a whirl. I do mean whirl because you have to mix the packet in a glass of water.

EBOOST is a daily Health booster.  Vitamins, mineral and pure-nutrients are in this little packet. What is not in the packet is sugar, artificial flavors. This is the all natural orange flavor. It does taste like orange. I was expecting that funny nutritional drink mix taste. But, it is pretty good.  You can definitely taste orange. It's low in calories too only 5 calories in this glass!

EBOOST  is available to purchase online and in stores. Find out more at

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,
