Happy Valentine's Day

Digg!
So last night I snuck out to my husband's car and left him a card and a stuffed Boston Terrier in the driver's seat.  The card is really funny with a boston terrier on it.  He loves it when I find cards with boston's on them.  That is just one of a couple of surprises I have planned.  I've really tried to take some time this year to come up with a few things for him. So hopefully he will have a great Valentine's Day.

Today I wanted to share about a cool product I recently got to try.  The folks at MyBlogSpark and Yoplait sent me a coupon to try one of their frozen smoothies. I didn't even know they existed, so I was really excited when presented the opportunity to try one for myself.  I love smoothies, but I never have time to make them.  I'm just not always organized, or have the time to cut up fruit ahead of time and mornings are pretty busy trying to get out the door to preschool. So when I saw there was a smoothie that all you had to do was put in the blender and add milk, I was all on board to give it a try. 

I was able to find these smoothies at my local Kroger store with the frozen fruit.  They come in four flavors: Blueberry Pomegranate, Triple Berry, Strawberry Banana, and Strawberry/Mango/Pineapple. I tried the Strawberry/Mango/Pineapple and it was delicious.  The only thing is I think I should have added a bit more milk than what the packaged instructed because I found the smoothie really thick. I like thick smoothies, but it would have been a tad easier to drink if I'd added more milk.  I am not a big milk drinker so I love being able to get that calcium through a smoothie, as well as having fruit. Yum.

Here is a picture of my smoothie in my "mom" Tervis Tumbler.  Gosh, I love my Tervis Tumbler.

So with this being Valentine's Day, let's have a giveaway. Because who doesn't love winning something awesome? The good folks at MyBlogSpark and Yoplait have offered up a fabulous prize pack so you too can try one of these great smoothie flavors.
