Today I had to pack mostly all soft foods for my eldest daughter because her poor tongue is so sore with the new expander that was just put in her mouth.  My son has braces but he never had to have one of these things in his mouth so we never had to deal with this before.  Thank goodness for yogurt smoothies!!!

WOW Summit 14 Oct

IMG_1668

I had the most wonderful time attending Mom’sMeet/Kiwi Magazine’s WOW Summit held in Philadelphia Pa. last week.  The activities started with the cocktail party that Zevia hosted were everyone got to try their great sodas and eat some super yummy food while meeting  some of the reps. and the amazing people that work for Kiwi magazine.  Monday is when the fun really started, all of the reps. came from all kinds of fabulous companies like Zevia, Evofem, Rudi’s Gluten Free, Happy Family, Finn Crisp & More. The reps were very knowledgeable about their products and took the time to talk to you about them.  Then the magazine had great keynote speakers that ranged from doctors & writers to company reps.  The magazine gave you your choice of 3 sessions to go to, I loved all of the sessions that I picked, they were very informative and timed just right. This is probably one of the only times I wished cloning was available because you could only go to 3 of the 5 sessions they were offering and I would have LOVED to have gone to all of them. The giveaways were great too, my girlfriend even won one. I almost won a baby food maker, they asked everyone to stand and everyone with children over two to sit, anyone with a baby under two keep standing. Grace just turned two years old so I sat down and everyone who was left standing won one (boo-hoo).  I wasn’t too upset though because look at the ridiculous loot I walked away with; between all the samples the reps gave me & the goodie bag from the event I think I made out like a bandit.  I can’t believe this was the first WOW Summit which means they are only going to get better.  I can’t wait for next year!  I also wanted to personally thank Annie Douglass at Mom’s Meet for all of her hard work.

You will be seeing lots & lots of cute ideas in the weeks to come.

It has been pretty crazy around here with school, sports, scouts & colds running through our house I needed a few quick bentos to send to school.  My eldest daughter loved the leftover chicken nuggets and my preschooler loved her muffin top lunch.
The great people at www.influenster.com asked me to try  any Sargento cheese stick products with my kids “I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”  We decided to try a different cheese stick and go with a Reduced Fat Colby-Jack instead of  the usual Mozzarella.  My kids tried them and LOVED them so I think these won’t last long.  Thanks so much Influenster!
