Wholly Guacmole & Cabot Cheese Review & Giveaway

my family LOVES Taco night! We tend to have tacos on a weekly basis! Since its just the 3 of us we usually have plenty of leftovers for Nachos for the next days lunch!

So when I had the opportunity to review Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa and Cabot Cheese, I literally Jumped at the chance! I was so excited when my package arrived. Thankfully my husband was home so he opened immediately and put the yummies in the fridge.

I received the following to Review:
Wholly Guacamole Spicy
Wholly Guacamole Snack Packs
Wholly Guacamole Classic
Wholly Guacamole Homestyle
Wholly Salsa Classic HOT
Wholly Salsa Roasted Tomato
Cabot Cheese in 4 different flavors

I told my husband that these products were for a Review I was doing and that we would be having a Family Taco Night. Well he just couldn't wait! He tore into the cheese like a mad man! I laughed and asked him how it tasted he said it was VERY good! Cabot cheese is best when you let it warm up a little, makes it easier to cut and enjoy!

So Taco night arrived and I was super excited! My husband is a hunter so we tend to eat ground venison in place of beef. I however mixed half beef with venison this night, to kick it up a notch! I just use my favorite brand of Taco Seasoning.

My husband isn't big on Guacamole so I left it off his. They still looked really good! He said the salsa really kicked it up a notch. We normally don't put salsa on our tacos. We will from now on though! Wholly Salsa has a permanent spot in my fridge.

My Daughter Loves her guac just like her momma. So I made hers similar to mine.. 

I try to stay away from flour and most carbs, but I wanted to get a picture of all the awesome products, so I took this one of mine: (I actually ended up not eating the tortilla)

I did however PILE it in a bowl and ate it up. The salsa is AMAZING! Me and my husband couldn't get enough of it!!!!  SO SO good.

Of course there was PLENTY of good ingredients left over the next day for Nachos! So I piled the cheese on for the Hubby.

I did enjoy some corn chips with mine. (I do have them from time to time I just try and not make it an every day or weekly thing!) So this was all ingredients... Love how the guacamole and salsa piled on top, makes it very eye appealing.

This is the very very yummy guacamole and salsa.. I just dipped some corn chips and ate it up!

I have snacked on the Wholly Guacamole and Wholly Salsa till they were GONE. I'm absolutely in LOVE with these products.
We are also HUGE Cheese lovers so Cabot cheese has lived up to our expectations. Its an awesome brand and we all loved the different varieties we were sent.

The Nutcracker Music Game (for kids) Review & Giveaway!!

I am a member of Tomoson and they teamed up to bring us this Review and Giveaway.
I was sent a Free download of the Nutcracker Music Game for children.

The download did take some time for me, but that could be my Internet. Sometimes its not the fastest!
I let my 6-year old daughter play around on it and she seemed to like it. I did have to help her a little here and there as the story part of the game didnt read aloud. We liked the games, they were simple but very engaging. I even played around on it with her! She played for a while before moving onto something else. Once I have time to sit with her and play around more I'm sure we will have even more fun with it!

This computer game gives children an outlet for exploring their own appreciation of music, while sharpening their listening and problem-solving skills and improving understanding of the basic concepts of music. The Nutcracker Music Game is a magical adventure that celebrates music by challenging kids through interactive participation and exciting game play.
The premise of the program is to save the Nutcracker by earning nine golden keys through a series of musical games and activities that teach students about differences between sounds, exercises their memory skills, and increases their music vocabulary.  
The Nutcracker Music Game offers exceptional teaching tools, such as the ability to demonstrate, in the classroom, every instrument of the orchestra and its interaction with other musical instruments. But above all it teaches children to love and appreciate music.  
The program features a multitude of innovative musical games, puzzles and riddles, as well as an animated Encyclopedia of Musical Instruments, an extensive Listening Room, Tchaikovsky's biography, the Nutcracker story, the History of the Nutcracker ballet, music trivia and more.

Parnevu Review (Hair Care Product)

I have been given the chance to Review Parnevu Hair Care Products. 

I was sent to review: 1 bottle of Extra-Dry Salon Shampoo
                                1container of Extra-Dry Leave In Conditioner  (Normal Formula)
                                1 container of Extra-Dry Shining Gel
       When I received I had already washed my hair. Now, I will inject here: I'm one that does not wash my hair every day. I have very damaged, dry, brittle hair from perms, chemical treatments, numerous styling products, and colorings. So for me to wash my hair every day I end up doing more damage that I want to avoid. So I did try the Shining Gel on my already washed-styled hair that I had sprayed with a water bottle so it was damp. First off, I LOVE the scent of the Gel! It was very easy to apply and didn't feel sticky icky. After my hair dried my hair did have a sticky feel, not soft to the touch. I assumed this was due to the product already in my hair.

      The next day I used all three products. I like the scent of the Shampoo, not as great smelling as the Gel but it was pleasant. I washed as normal and didn't use any additional conditioner. I combed my hair and applied the Leave In Conditioner with my pick. I love the scent of the Conditioner as well. Better than the Shampoo, but my favorite is the Gel!! My hair was super soft and didn't feel weighed-down like some leave in conditioners can feel. Then I applied the gel with the pick and this time I didn't use as much as I did the first time, hoping that would help with the sticky feeling after my hair dried. It wasn't as sticky, but it still had that sticky Gel Feeling to it. I think that's just something you have to deal with when you use Hair Gel.
I also had my husband (who has severely flaky scalp) start using the Shampoo in place of his normal Shampoo and I have noticed a difference in his hair. His scalp stays clean longer and he doesn't have as much flaky dry skin! I'm pretty happy about that! 

Overall I am happy with the Shampoo and Leave In Conditioner. I would recommed anyone with Dry hair to purchase this product.

For Our Fort Hood HEROS! Please Sign

I'm sure many of you remember the shooting ON AMERICAN SOIL AT FORT HOOD, TEXAS! 

If you watch the news or even read it online or elsewhere you know that it has been classified as "Work Place Terror" Instead of 'Act Of Terror'..  In my opinion along with Many others we find this to be UN-TRUE! If you were there you know the Terror that was felt. I happened to be On-Post when it happened and was Stuck. No-One in or out, it was a very terrifying day. If you have any Patriotism I ask that you PLEASE GO Sign the Petition.... It takes literally Seconds out of your day. Lets Speak Out for the Brave Men and Women of Fort Hood!!   

Thank you!
