Trying Out The New Lays Tastes Of America Chips

So Lays is doing this thing where they have different chip flavors depending on where you live. They are called Tastes of America. Plus you can win prizes if you enter the code on your bag.

Here are the flavors for my area. I'm in Texas.

My son loves to eat, so I decided to test out the chips with him.

First up was the Chile Con Queso.

They had a delightful cheese flavor with a little bit of a kick. I love spicy things, so I enjoyed these. My son liked them too.

I went for the West Coast Truffle Fries next. I was excited about these. I took a bite and at first they were good but then a weird taste filled my mouth.

My son felt the same way.

It sort of reminded me of what feet would taste like if they were in a sweaty sock most of the day.

Not for us.

Finally, we had the Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper flavor. I tend to love things with bacon, so I thought I'd enjoy them.


Not really. They had a strange smokey flavor that I couldn't get past. Tommy thought they were okay and could finish the bag, but he wouldn't want to buy them again.

So which ones were our favorite?

Not surprisingly, it's the ones that didn't taste like feet or funky smoke. I would buy this flavor again.

My son agreed!

My cat Ruby was wondering what on earth we were doing outside.

"We're trying chips, Ruby. Want one?"

She said nope.

What are the flavors in your region? There's a Fried Pickles With Ranch flavor that I really want to try!

If you go to Amazon, you can buy all the bags for less than $20 here. I'm tempted to do this. That way I can try all the flavors.

Have you tried these chips yet?

Why You Should Adopt Cats

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CelebratingMorris #CollectiveBias

We have two cats.


And Max. He's our oldest. He's 11.

We got both cats at the Humane Society. Honestly, when we got Max, we were just looking, but you know how that goes. There were a bunch of kittens in a room and Max walked over when I was looking in and pressed his paw against the window as if to say, "You have to take me home!"

We did.

I've always loved orange kitties. Max reminds me of Morris the Cat. You know, Morris the 9Lives® cat?

Did you know Morris was discovered in a Humane Society by Bob Martwick, an animal talent scout? Morris had quite the personality--just like Max! I mean, Max knew if he put his paw against the window that he'd be adopted. He knew how to be cute.

Morris did so well in his audition that he was dubbed "the Clark Gable of cats." What a compliment! He was in over 50 commercials. I'm thinking my Max could be in a commercial if he had delicious 9Lives wet food to entice him. You can learn more about Morris the Cat's story here. I think it's so cool that Morris never forgot where he came from and makes it his mission to save other cats. In 2007 he launched Morris' Million Cat Rescue® and will not rest until every cat has a home. This year, Morris the 9Lives Cat is celebrating his 50th Adopt-i-versary!

There are many reasons why you should adopt a furry friend from a humane society, and here are the top ones.

1. You are rescuing an animal and giving them a home. 

Normally there are tons of animals wanting a friend. When we walked in, there were cages and cages of cats. We always look for ones with personalities, like Morris. With Max, he had the paw on the window. With Ruby, she wouldn't stop meowing at us until we came to her. When we dared to walk away and look at another cat, she gave indignant meows.

2. The money you pay for the adoption fee goes back towards the humane society.

Yup! We paid about $60 for each of our cats, but it all went back to the humane society. It's worth it, because our cats came with their vaccinations.

3. The animals usually come spayed and neutered!

This can save a bunch of money. It can be pricey to do this.

4. They become true family members.

Yup, we love our cats like family. And I always want to show them how much they are appreciated, so I pick up 9Lives wet food at Dollar General.

You can find the 9Lives wet food in the cat aisle. 

I picked up the Meaty Paté with Chicken and Tuna and Super Supper flavors. 9Lives has been around for over 50 years and knows how to help cats lead long lives so I feel good purchasing the food. Plus, 9Lives gives me the confidence that I am doing the right thing when I buy it. I mean, if a company is around for over 50 years, it shows they know what they are doing. 

Even better? Here's an Ibotta coupon for 9Lives wet food! I love how 9Lives celebrates and champions all cats. I'm always for a company that adores cats as much as I do. Seriously. If I could, I'd have a house FULL of cats. And speaking of cats, you MUST check out this Cat Pack article. There are tons of adorable cats. I probably squealed too much. 

Since 9Lives believes cats deserve to live well, so you know they'll enjoy the food. Ruby was irritated with me here because she was all, "Um. Do I get to EAT some?"

Yes Ruby. Here's your food. 

So remember. If you're looking for a cat, check out the Humane Society. 

Because who knows? You might find your own Morris the Cat.

Hey, It's Okay

I got this idea from Glamour magazine. You can link up any day of the week. All you have to do is make a list of what you're okay about. Simple! Please do not link up a post that has nothing to do with Hey, It's Okay. It's rude and I'll delete the link.

Hey, It's Okay.... be taking Tommy to pick up his schedule! School starts in less than 2 weeks. also be stopping off at In & Out Burger since it's by Tommy's school for lunch. I get my burger "animal style." have ordered Natalie's Halloween costume. Like last year, it's a scary one. still make easy lunches for my kids. Honestly, they are old enough to make lunches on their own but if I left it to them, it would be full of cookies. But all these cute cut out lunches? No. They get a sandwiches, chips, and a fruit cup. have tried the new Oreo flavors. My favorite was the Rocky Road because the cream tasted like brownie batter to me. The Strawberry Shortcake was good too, but I've always been partial to chocolate. I recommend them both, but if you only want one, go for Rocky Road!
