Breakfast Made Easy With Vitatops #VitaTops

Holla Everybody!  I’m here today to chat with you about a fantastic and EASY breakfast option called VitaTops™.  If you haven’t already tried them then you are seriously missing out.  A lot of times we are so crazy busy in the morning trying to run out the door I forget to eat breakfast.  By lunch time I am literally starving and I know that isn’t good for me.  Obviously!

Enter VitaTop muffins….they take less than a few minutes and they are a full of fiber and protein to fill my belly.  They are 100-150 calories, low fat, high fiber and only made with clean and simple ingredients. Each muffin top has its own unique health benefits from Organic ingredients, Superfoods like flax & Chia seed, protein-rich and Gluten Free.

I brought my breakfast buddy Connor with me to Target to stock up on some of our favorite Vitatop flavors.

They come in:

Deep Chocolate VitaTops

Wild Blueberry VitaTops

Protein Chocolate Peanut Butter VitaTops

CranBran VitaTops

Protein Banana Chocolate Chip VitaTops

Chocolate Chip VitaTops

Chocolate Mint VitaTops

Apple Crumb VitaTops

Triple Chocolate Chunk VitaTops

Banana Nut VitaTops

Sugar Free Velvety Chocolate VitaTops

Golden Corn VitaTops

Our favorite flavors are the Chocolate Chip, Deep Chocolate, Blueberry, and Chocolate Peanut Butter.

They are so good I not only eat them for breakfast but I have them for dessert too!

A little chocolate if you please???

I found my VitaTops Muffin Tops at Target! You can find yours at your nearest Publix, Kroger, Stop & Shop, or Shop-Rite locations.


LazyDog Grand Opening

A few weeks ago I got to attend a grand opening lunch right here in my hometown (Grapevine, Euless, Colleyville, TX)  at Lazy Dog Restaurant and Bar.  Verdict:  I will definitely be going BACK!  I loved the atmosphere and the cozy cabin style feel.  Also, I neeeeeed that huge deer on the fireplace back there.

Lazy Dog is a dog-friendly restaurant with a HUGE patio so you can bring your fur babies. We have been looking for Connor a dog for his birthday coming up and as soon as we get one I’m sure we’ll be taking it to Lazy Dog to eat this summer.  The staff and Chef were all amazing people and just because of their kindness- I want to go back to see their sweet faces!

We lunched on some yummy foods including:


Whisky Berry Bang

A variety of beer (Hop Head Sampler)


The Dirty Dog

Hatch Chili & Bacon Mac N’ Cheese (My personal favorite!)

Turkey Meatballs

Hawaiian Sticky Ribs

BBQ Bison Meatloaf

Bone-in Pork Schnitzel


Butter Cake (LOVED THIS!)

Simms Family S’more

I like a lighter brew, so I chose #3 obviously…but it was nice to sample all three and get a feel for what I like for next time 🙂

The Dirty Dog

My favorite – Hatch Chili & Bacon Mac N’ Cheese.

The sauce on these fries y’all…I could have eaten a boat load of them.  I think it was called “umami sauce” sooooo good!

This was divine (Anything with “s’mores” in it I usually can’t deny).

The BUTTAH cake!!!! OMG…  Light, fluffy, buttery goodness!

To cap it all off from our food comas a delicious iced mocha.  I know my coffee and this was super DELISH!

Thank you so much Lazy Dog Restaurants and Bar for hosting us and I’ll definitely be back to see you soon- aka when I can get a babysitter because I want to go with my hubby!    ALONE.

Love your Little Ones with Little Bites + Enter to WIN! #LoveLittleBites

Entenmann’s® Little Bites® provided me with coupons & a gift card so I could share my thoughts about NEW Entenmann’s® Little Bites®.  All opinions are my own.

This is my life every day after school…“Mom I’m so hungry!!!”  If this is YOU then honey let me tell you about these new delicious snacks from Entenmann’s® Little Bites®.  We got three different kinds to try and of course being my child Connor favors the chocolate and chocolate chip.

Not only are these Little Bites delicious but they also contain no high fructose corn syrup, no trans fat, and REAL chocolate cocoa!

The little packages are perfect for snack time or an after school pick me up.  Now days it’s so hard to send things to school because everything is monitored.  I know at Connor’s school you can’t bring anything that isn’t pre-packaged with the ingredients on each item to hand out to students.  His birthday is next month and I think the Chocolate & Vanilla Party Cakes will make a great classroom treat!

Perfect little bite sized cakes.  And they have sprinkles!!!

As you can see they are Connor approved!

His school is also collecting the wrappers after the kids are done and they are worth money for his school.  You can find more out about that program HERE.  We’ve back to the store and have got at least 10 more boxes – I really hope they keep this on the market!

Do you ever have one of those songs that sticks in your head and stays on repeat over and over?  I bet we could all name a tune like that, whether it’s from our childhood or a fond memory.  One song that I remember growing up was the Folgers jingle “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”  

Because you know I love my coffee all day every day 🙂

The Folgers jingle has become a song that just about everyone has heard at one time or another.  If you love to create music or just sing out loud in the car…you never know what will come out when you are grooving to the music!  Folgers is inviting aspiring musicians to enter the 2017 Folgers Jingle contest and make it their own.

Folgers® has a long-standing tradition of inspiring musicians to follow their dreams, and this year, they’ve teamed up with country music singer-songwriter Chris Young to encourage aspiring musicians to create their own version of the iconic Best Part of Wakin’ Up™ Jingle in the Folgers Jingle Contest.


Submit a video of your best version of the jingle on the website from January 30th through February 27th. Your version of the Jingle must include the complete melody and complete lyrics of “The Best Part of Wakin’ Up is Folgers in Your Cup.”

From February 27th to March 19th, Folgers will choose 5 semi-finalists and each will have a mentor session with Chris Young before the online vote.

From March 27th to April 24th, fans around the country will get the chance to vote daily for their favorite jingle. Every vote automatically enters you to win prizes up to $10,000.
