Wordless Wednesday- Blooms start here

Our seeds: Sunflowers, Foxglove, Sweet Pea, Hollyhock, Baby's Breath.

Spring is here! Spring is here! It’s the best time of the year! Those of us who love digging in the dirt have been waiting anxiously for planting time. We’ve dreamed of warmer days for months.
We’ve poured over seed catalogs, visited our favorite websites and sketched up our gardens and flower beds and got out our tools. Some of us who got warm weather last week have even bought some plants in preparation for our gardening season.

But wait! Don’t plant just yet. The USDA changed hardiness zones last year. Now is the time to double check your number.

2012 USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map is the standard by which gardeners and growers can determine which plants are most likely to thrive at a location. The map is based on the average annual minimum winter temperature, divided into 10-degree F zones. 

It's easy to check your zone: go HERE, type in your zip code and/or state to see your personalized map. This site puts my hardiness zone as a 7 as seen on the above map.

Better Homes and Gardens (my second bible) has in depth gardening by region information as well. Go HERE to find out what they say your planting zone is and get a free personalized garden plan by going HERE.

 This site puts me in a zone 6.

What does this mean to me? I’m going to follow both guidelines and ask lots of questions at my local nursery if I fall in love with a plant I have not personally worked with before.

What plants are you looking forward to growing this year? My yen this year is Hollyhocks, Sunflowers. My new addition, which according to my ever helpful Better Homes and Gardens regional planting guide says will grow splendidly here, is Fleabane

Fleabane Description and growing Information:

This tall wildflower produces tiny, daisy-like flowers in great clouds in late summer into early fall. It is often mistaken for an aster, but is easier to grow and isn't plagued by fungal problems. Plants start blooming in midsummer and often continue blooming until fall. The native forms are seldom grown in the garden because they can be weedy, though they're great for naturalized areas and prairie or meadow plantings. However, many well-behaved, beautiful hybrids are available. All are beautiful when cut in big sprays and arranged in a vase.



Plant Type:

Plant Height:
18-30 inches tall

Plant Width:
18-24 inches wide

Landscape Uses:
Containers,Beds & Borders

Special Features:
Flowers, Cut Flowers, Attracts Butterflies, Drought Tolerant, Easy to Grow. 

Isn't Fleabane pretty?  If you have had experience with this plant, please let me know in the comments and happy spring!

Dole Fruit Parfaits Review

in , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Tuesday, March 19, 2013

I have always enjoyed Dole fruit products, so I was expecting good quality and great taste when I gave Dole Fruit Parfaits a try recently. What I wasn't prepared for was the stick my finger in the cup to get every last drop of goodness out taste! 
Readers, be warned: you will want to stock up on all three flavors of the Dole Fruit Parfaits. At just $2.79 per 4 cup package, it won’t break your budget to do so.

About Dole Fruit Parfaits:

Dole Fruit Parfaits are available in three flavors: Pineapple and Crème, Apples and Crème, Peaches and Crème. Each parfait package contains 4 grab and go clear cups with easy peel off lids (so your kids can open them by themselves). This is a plus for me because some fruit cups lids are hard to open, leading to big messes, even for my bigger kids.
Another plus is that Dole Fruit Parfaits contain all natural fruit with Vitamin C, are low in fat and sodium and cholesterol free. 
And they score high marks on keeping calories low. The Peaches and Crème cup and the Pineapple and Crème cup have 120 calories per serving and the Apples and Crème has 130 calories per serving.  Please visit www.dole.com for more information. 

Here's what the Peaches and Creme Looks like:

My Review:

I love them! My kids love them! My husband loves them! Seriously. I have never been able to give a 4 point Love to a product before here on My WAHM Plan, but these fruit Parfaits deserve it.
We have tried all 3 flavors and found them to be a refreshing treat. None of us had a clear favorite. All 3 flavors will be bought again!
The fruit is naturally sweet, like we have come to expect with Dole fruit and the crème is light-tasting, not heavy. You can serve these parfaits room temperature, cold, or add them to warm cereals like oatmeal for a quick and easy way to dress up a morning staple.

Dole Fruit Parfaits are a snack we can feel good about giving our whole family. 

I highly recommend this product.

Almost Wordless Wednesday-Rusty

in , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Meet Rusty Mechanism- The Recycled Factory Man

Rusty has a kind face. 

Rusty has a birds eye view from his height of 20 feet.

This is Recycling and Re-purposing at it's best.

From the top of his head to his great big feet, Rusty is a marvel!

Meeting Rusty; taking the time to stop and get to know him, instead of just hurrying past him into the mall was the highlight of our recent visit to The Factory in Franklin, TN. The kids loved it, and it didn't cost a thing!

What hidden gem do you have in your area? Go visit and share your pictures with me!

Family Movie Night Fun

in , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Monday, March 11, 2013

We are big fans of a Friday night movie and a pizza. Our kids' movie choices are usually animated, so we were delighted when we got the opportunity to watch a DVD sampler set of movies from DreamWorks.  

They sent us an awesome movie night pack which contained:

Set of 4 DreamWorks Animation DVD samplers
"The Croods: Grub's Survival Guide" book
"The Croods: Movie Novelization" book
Film Reel tin filled with movie theater treats

movie night fun pack

We all know how much we've grown to love our favorite characters 
from the DreamWorks Animation films like Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar, and more.

For a special time (until March 15th or while supplies last), Big G and DreamWorks Animation have teamed up to create four collectible DVD samplers containing content from Shrek, How to Train Your Dragon, Kung Fu Panda and Madagascar, just for you!
Each DVD contains fun episodes, behind the scenes footage and bonus material from your favorite DreamWorks Animation movies. 

Hurry, and collect all four! Plus, look for an exclusive sneak peek at "The Croods", coming to theaters March 22, 2013.

You can only receive these four collectible DVD samplers by purchasing specially marked boxes of your favorite Big G cereal, seen below.

Courtesy: Big G 

We enjoyed our snacks and the DVD samplers. The favorite among the girls was, of course, the sneak peek of "The Croods".

movie night
The Croods had us laughing!

The girls really want to see the movie now after seeing the sneak peek and reading the books, so we are adding a trip to see "The Croods" as one of our spring break treats. 

I hope you will be able to get your own set for a fun family movie night at your house. I am lucky enough to be able to share this gift pack with my niece and nephews, who live out of state. I think they will have as much fun as we did watching these DVDs and enjoying the treats. And, it might even get me some cool Auntie Cred! 

What is your favorite DreamWorks movie? I’m still rather fond of How to Train Your Dragon.

Health and nutrition bars review

in , , , , , , , , , , , by Linda A Kinsman, Friday, March 01, 2013

Recently I received a box full of goodies to review for Vitacost. Since the representative couldn’t tell me exactly what products I might receive, I was pleasantly surprised with my box. It was a mixed lot comprised mainly of health and beauty products and health and nutrition bars and supplements. 

Today I want to share my thoughts on the bars I received and a little bit about Vitacost the company.

saving, health, beauty, nutrition

Vitacost.com- We take the cost out of healthy living.
All the top brands for discount vitamins, supplements, whole foods, health foods and sports nutrition online at up to 50% off other companies. Plus, they offer a flat rate shipping fee of $4.99, or free with any order of $49 or more. 
They also have a refer a friend opportunity where you can earn $ 10 each referral.  I signed up and would love it if you signed up using my link here.

My Product Reviews:

Promax Fit 'n Crisp Protein Snack Cinnamon Crunch:

crunch bars
Courtesy: Vitacost.com

These bars are like a cinnamon-y rice crispy treat, only better. They are not icky sweet, and have 13 grams of protein and 140 calories. Both my daughters loved this one, so I will buy again.

healthy snack bars
Courtesy: Vitacost.com

Their tag line says it all for me. They really are the best tasting, healthy snack bars we’ve had in a long time. KIND bars are all natural with ingredients you can pronounce.

We received 3 KIND bars: Almond and Coconut, Dark Chocolate & Cherry Cashew, and Cranberry Almond. Each bar had its own unique quality and taste but the one I would buy over and over again? The Almond & Coconut!  It’s like a not so good for you candy bar (think Payday) gone healthy. I am hooked and will buy again!

blueberry bar
Courtesy: Vitacost.com

I wanted to love this totally organic, healthy sounding, delicious smelling bar, but I didn’t. I just liked it. 
I could taste the dates and Agave nectar more than I could pick up on the blueberries.   My daughter and my husband on the other hand LOVED this bar and wanted more, so I will buy again.

health bars

This bar is made with raw and super foods, one of them being Hemp.  Again I wanted to love this bar. 
It looks like dark chocolate and smells like Mocha. Win-Win for me.
  But, I did not like this bar at all. It is thick and dense. It leaves a vitamin taste in your mouth. And I experienced a mild case of burps in which I could taste the Hemp, or what I perceived to be the Hemp, I likened it to eating grass clippings. My family didn’t care for the taste or texture of this bar either, so we won’t buy again.   

peanut butter bars
Courtesy: Vitacost.com

This is a huge protein bar, so you could split it. It has 28 grams of whey protein. Overall, I liked the flavor and consistency of this bar, but my husband liked it more. My kids thought it was just okay. If we bought again, it would be for keeping in the car for road trips or when hunger strikes and you can’t stop and eat. 

I hope you have found these reviews helpful. I will have another Vitacost review for you soon where I will share the rest of the products included in my Vitacost box.

To learn more about Vitacost, visit their website or like them on Facebook or Twitter.
