Fiber One 90-Calorie Brownies gift pack

Let's face it, one of the toughest parts of managing your weight is steering clear of waistline-expanding sweet treats.


Rather than focusing on the foods you can't have - Fiber One® is giving you the opportunity to eat what you love without the guilt. New Fiber One® 90 Calorie Brownies are moist, chewy treats that let you have what you crave while helping you stay on track with your balanced diet. With 5 grams of fiber, which is 20 percent of the Daily Value of Fiber, the new brownies are a smart snacking choice.

The new Fiber One 90-Calorie Brownies are tasty treats that come in two flavors. The Chocolate Fudge brownies are made with chocolate-flavored chips and topped with a dark chocolate-flavored drizzle, and the Chocolate Peanut Butter has peanut butter chips topped with a peanut butter drizzle. Yumm!

Win It! I was provided with a Fiber One 90-Calorie Brownies gift pack that included a box each of the Chocolate Fudge and the Chocolate Peanut Butter brownies, as well as a Fiber One 90-Calorie Brownie themed duffel bag, jump rope, water bottle, snack case, headband and bracelet. One of my readers will ALSO receive the same gift pack that I did!

Review & Giveaway: The Card Cache **CLOSED**


I recently received for review, "The Card Cache"! The Card Cache is a convenient way to organize your cards. There are 4 stainless steel designs to choose from. I chose the Heart Cache. I was so excited to open up my package! In it, I received a cute little plastic bag that contained the Card Cache w/alpha cards, a mini sharpie and an adorable, yummy, pink cupcake charm! Also, included, was a small, black box that will hold the Card Cache and a hole puncher.

What you do is put your cards in a stack. I put mine in alpha order. Grab your hole puncher and start punching your cards in the upper left hand corner--avoiding the magnetic strips. Some cards may be pretty tough to punch. You'll have to use two hands doing those. You then thread the cards onto the stainless steel ring and screw the Card Cache tightly to secure. Your cards won't be going anywhere, they'll be organized and secure! I really FEEL like a fashionista carrying this around!!


I wanted to show you what I was holding my cards in BEFORE I received this....I won't go back to using my pretty BIG organizer for cards. It sure was a lot heavier than what I'm carrying now--"The Card Cache"!

Win it! One lucky reader will win their very own "Card Cache Bundle Essential!"

This bundle includes:

*1 x Cache (choose your favorite one)
*1 x Mini 5-tab Divider set
*1 x Calendar (2011)
*2 x Clear protector sleeves

*Mandatory entry: Follow me via Google Friend Connect (GFC) and also...which Card Cache do you like best? Take a look and come back and leave me a comment on which one you would choose if you are the winner! (1 comment= 1 entry)

Book Review: "Untamed" by Lisa Harper

I have to say that I was excited to receive a copy of "Untamed" by Lisa Harper. It has 211 pages, consisting of 12 chapters. At the beginning of every chapter, it will state "Our Savior is....". I love how it says for example, "Our Savior is Wildly Compelling" and then underneath of it, it will have a quote. Under this one, it's by Charles Spurgeon and says: "His character enchants, subdues, overwhelms--and with the irresistible impluse of its own sacred attraction it draws your spirit right up to Him." Wow! It will also have sniplets throughout the chapters --The Wild Ways of God-- such as: "The fact that Jesus chose exactly twelve disciples is likely a New Testament nod to the twelve tribes and twelve patriarchs of ancient Israel." At the end of every chapter, there's a section that will say: "We need an untamed Savior because....only a wildly compelling Jesus frees our hearts to race toward Him when He calls." I love this and they're different for each section. Underneath that, it'll have --Living and Loving with Abandon-- and will have questions that you can answer either by yourself or with a Bible study group. This is a wonderful book that I cherish.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free for review from Waterbrook Multnomah Publishing Group. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

Book review: "Springtime of the Spirit"




This is the first book that I've ever read by Maureen Lang. It's entitled, "Springtime of the Spirit" and it's part of her Great War series. The story is set in Munich, Germany, after the end of WWI. Germany has been defeated and soldiers are marching home.



A lovely lady by the name of Annaliese Duray is very passionate about politics and is giving women and the working class a voice in the new government. Christophe enters the scene, a family friend to bring her home...sent by Annaliese's Mom, Frau Duray. She doesn't want to go home. Annaliese and Christophe end up having an attraction towards one another and they end up staying in Germany rather than going home, to America with Annaliese's parents.
