Looking For A Healthy Snack? Try Harvest Snaps!

This post was created in partnership with Harvest Snaps. I have been compensated for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions are my own.


You guys know that I love my junk food. But sometimes my pants start to feel tight and I have to watch it. I'm always on the lookout for healthier snacks when this happens.

Cue Harvest Snaps


I was sent a box with all sorts of flavors. I was eager to dig in. The Caesar flavor was my favorite. My daughter loves sugar snap peas so she wanted to try the Lightly Salted Snapea Crisps.




Natalie approved! So did Mario and Luigi. She turned one into a mustache so she could fit in:


I also liked the Tomato Basil flavor. I love all things tomato:



The good news about Harvest Snaps? They're Gluten Free. This is a huge thing because my mother-in-law is gluten free and she's always on the look out for things she's allowed to eat. They are also baked, not fried, and are high in fiber and protein. They are also low in sodium and fat, so your pants will still close.


So if you're looking for a healthier snack or a Lunchspiration, remember Harvest Snaps! You can buy them in most retailers such as Target and Walmart.



You can also FOLLOW Harvest Snaps on Twitter and LIKE their Facebook page to learn more.


Also, check out this hilarious webisode featuring Harvest Snaps. I want to wear a gigantic green ball on my head now:

7 Things I Do When I Read Books About Henry VIII

I recently finished The King's Curse by Philippa Gregory.

I love any book that has to do with Henry VIII. Philippa has written MANY books about Henry VIII. (Maybe you've heard of the one called The Other Boleyn Girl?)

When I read books about Henry VIII, my family knows it.

Why?

Because I tend to say and do the following:


1. I tell Tom that I get to pick where we eat because I gave him a son and heir. As in, "You want Mexican. I want Italian. But you see, I did do my duty by giving you a son and heir..." (Once Tom said, "An heir to what? We have like $7 in savings.")

2. I ask the kids to kneel for my blessing as they did in Henry VIII's time. It was important to be obedient back then. The children would kneel and would say "lady mother." I asked my kids to call me lady mother and they had the nerve to look at me as though I'm crazy.

3. I wear my Anne Boleyn costume around the house.



4. I call Tom "Sire." You'd think he'd like it but he's all, "Knock it off."


5. I tell the kids stories about Henry VIII. "When he got fat, he smelled. They didn't bathe often back then. So he was fat, he had that wound on his leg that was infected and that smelled too. Can you imagine the smells back then?" Natalie's all, "I don't like this story."

6. I'll say, "Gosh, if I lived in Henry VIII's time, I'd be beheaded. I have a mouth on me." Tom is like, "I'm well aware."



7. I randomly curtsy. Even if I'm in pants. Tom is like, "Stop reading and watching Henry VIII stuff. You get even weirder."





Does history intrigue you too?

Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Stuff Keeps Happening!

Natalie recently had lice. It was not fun.

And then she woke up with a swollen eye:



This child.

Something always seems to go wrong. Remember when she got the hole in her head?

Some people thought it might be an allergic reaction so I ran out and got some Benadryl. I thought it might be Pink Eye, but I didn't see any pink. I also picked up eye drops.

Natalie took the Benadryl without any issues.

The eye drops? She freaked.

She was like Rachel in Friends. Remember when she jumped whenever it was time for the puff of air to go into her eye during an exam?

Natalie did that with the drop. She'd lie there and as soon as the drop came near, she'd leap away.

"I WASN'T READY YET!" she'd shout at me.

Okay, well, the fact that you were stretched out and telling me to "do it now" made me think you were ready. I apologize.

Needless to say, I don't think many drops ended up in her eye.

I'm glad to report that her eye looks much better now. But seriously? Please no more injuries, lice, or eye issues.



I could do without the whining too.
