Turkey Hotdogs

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Sticks Meat Sticks in Turkey

img_1567

I find it funny that even though it says Turkey, the first ingredient is pork, then beef, then ground turkey. I also think that one jar of meat sticks is too much for one meal. He eats one to two sticks at every meal. He really enjoyed them and I bought the jar of chicken sticks, which are only made of chicken. I think maybe because they are called meat sticks, they put other “meat” in it? I don’t know, but that is very misleading. This is why I encourage everyone to read labels. You never really know what you are actually eating, until then. These sticks are great to have around for a quick meal. Dean will have them whole, steamed with veggies, or I’ll cut them up and fry them a bit in the pan. He loves them any way you make them.

For Swiss Miss Marshmallow Hot Chocolate

food

Although Nestle is my favorite, Swiss Miss is not a bad second. I just think that this brand is a bit powdery tasting and why do all the marshmallows melt instantly? I like to have my hot chocolate with boiling water. I do not add milk, since I do have a milk sensitivity. I enjoy hot chocolate mostly in the Winter time, but I’ve been known to have a few iced hot chocolates in the summertime. I do enjoy this hot chocolate and have already repurchased it in a huge size, since it was on sale. I tend to buy what is on sale or what I have a coupon for. My favorite is stacking a coupon on top of a good sale.

Foodie Post

For Gerber Lil’ Beanies With Cheddar and Broccoli

Dean loves these and I love how healthy these are for him. These have been featured so much on my blog and this review includes the plain ones as well. They have 2 grams of protein per serving, because they are made of beans. It also contains less than 1 gram of sugar, which is a nice added benefit. I have repurchased these again and again. I will keep repurchasing, until I can find a good adult alternative. Possibly, veggie sticks? Those are made with veggies instead of beans though. Dean can eat these all day and he asks for them with his hands when he sees the container. I highly recommend these for toddlers everywhere. They are a great nutritious, filling snack. I might do an Amazon order, if they come in more flavors, so Dean can try some new tastes. Also, they are less expensive when bought in bulk.

Baby Organic

For Happy Baby Organic Teethers in Sweet Potato and Banana

food

When I first bought this product for Dean, he didn’t like it and would not eat it at 6 months old. I kept these around until he got better at eating, since they are individually packed, they would not go stale. He powered through these at 1 years old. I would not repurchase, because they are rice teething wafers and he can just as easily teeth on an animal cracker. I bought these when he was young where he would need something that would dissolve easily. Now that he is older, he doesn’t need something like this anymore. I do recommend this product. I think that it is good for a young baby, especially if they are teething when they are that young, just don’t give them too may rice products due to the arsenic found in bleached rice.

April Empties 2017

I know I’m about two days early for my monthly empties, but I am ready to empty my wicker basket and start collecting for May, my birthday month. I am hoping to go through more beauty products next month, since it is my birthday month. I will probably be wearing more makeup anyway. I also have EXCITING news on my Pan That Pallet progress, at least exciting for me. LOL. This was a lighter month with less empties, but I am happy that I finished off two makeup products. I also have three more on their last legs, so I am hoping to have 5 or more makeup empties in May. I have so many update posts to write, but I love being busy on my blog. I might have a May Reads post this month, because I made a promise to myself to read an hour on Saturday and Sunday. I hope that I can keep that promise. I’ll be back to reading more once I finish my last class for my Associates Degree in Information Technology.

It was a slow month with a few product multiples, but I really enjoyed using what I have up. I currently have a lotion on its last legs and I think I might use another mini lotion after I use this one up. I never realized how much I really had before I did my collection videos. I knew that I had a lot, but it really puts it in perspective. I know how much I can use up and I strive to enjoy using up my stuff everyday. I don’t want to be the girl with 20 lotion backups anymore. I think I can have a few in back-stock once I use up what I have. Naturally, when I go B&BW shopping, I will be shopping the annual sale and the buy 3, get 3 free sale. Naturally, I will have multiples of products, but it won’t bother me. I’m not going to buy more on top of that. It keeps the back-stock reasonable when you just buy once. Once I run out of something, I’ll do another haul when I can, but I’m really loving my mindset right now. Very zen and minimalistic. I really love minimalism. I got my closet down so much that now, I can go out and do a clothing haul to buy pieces I will love and that will last. I don’t want to support consumerism anymore.

Delightful

For International Delight Coffee Creamers

food

I have tried about three or four flavors or seven and I absolutely love this brand of liquid coffee creamer. They add just the right amount of sweetness to my coffee and I enjoy the variety of flavors that they have. The only flavor I will not try is Irish Cream, because I do not like this flavor at all. It is not my cup of coffee. I have repurchased this brand over and over again. The standard size usually lasts me about two weeks, so on average I go through about two a month. I am an everyday coffee drinker, usually just a cup in the morning during the week and two on the weekends. If you like to drink your coffee with only coffee creamer (no sugar), this is the way to go. I don’t add any sugar, because this gives sweetness to every cup.

Lil’ Biscuits

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Biscuits in Vanilla Wheat

food

Dean loved these biscuits a lot and I loved that they weren’t messy at all. It is made with whole grains instead of bleached flour. The main drawback to this treat is that it has two grams of sugar per 7 grams of biscuit. If the biscuit is 7 grams and it contains 2 grams of sugar, than it is really only 5 grams worth of the good stuff. It’s like a fourth full of sugar and that is just a little too much for how small they are. I will not repurchase  this biscuit again, but I will be buying more stuff from Gerber. I am going to buy some fruit and veggie packets, because Dean does not get enough fruit and veggies a day. He drinks about 4 ounces of V8 V-Fusion a day mixed with equal parts water. The flavor I get is really sweet, even with cutting it down with water.

With Love ❤
