Fiber One Cereal

As I mentioned in my blog post yesterday, things have been crazy. And it has been hard to eat right.  But the folks MyBlogSpark and General Mills sent me 5 boxes of Fiber One cereal.  The flavors they sent were: Fiber One Raisin Bran Clusters, Honey Clusters, Caramel Delight, and Shredded Wheat.  They also sent me some really interesting information I thought you might want to know.

"The 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans say people should consume 25-38 grams of fiber daily, and that the average American consumes only 15 grams. What's amazing is that incorporating fiber into your diet can be effortless and definitely delicious with Fiber One cereals offering at least 30 percent of the Daily Value per serving (Some Fiber One cereals offer more than 50 percent!)

If you check out this link to Fiber One right now they have a $1.75 coupon off on Fiber One product (while supplies last).  So if you want to give Fiber One cereals a try, then this would be a great way to give it a try.

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods.

Post Wedding Fatigue

So Saturday my sister in law got married and my oldest son was the ring bearer and I was the matron of honor. Things were so crazy.  But everything went off without a hitch.  We were so busy we didn't get to take any pictures, but I can't wait to get some from other folks.  I'll post some pix when I get a chance.  So that is what has been going on in our world.

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods.

Playing Hooky

So I've been playing hooky from my blog and for good reason. As I posted last week, it was our 10 year anniversary.  We went out to dinner on Thursday and had a wonderful time.  We were blessed to get to leave on Friday and have a long weekend with just the two of us in Myrtle Beach, SC.  We had a wonderful time and I've been recovering from our fun in the sun.  I'll post about it later.

Hope you are having a great week in your neck of the woods!

June Bride

10 years ago today it was a beautiful June that was 70 degrees and no humidity. And I married my best friend.  Where did the last 10 years go?

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!

Tea Room

As I've mentioned before, my sister in law is getting married soon so about a week ago I had a tea for her and the other bridesmaids.  It was so nice to get together and share an afternoon of good food and great conversation.  Here are a few pictures of the tea.

 Here is the table that was set up. I have to admit I was a bit annoyed with the tea room for having Memorial Day decorations on the table for the shower. Don't get me wrong, I want to celebrate Memorial Day, but they knew this was a wedding event and not a military wedding event.
 I was so glad I bought the cute wedding flag and had the "Bride to Be" sash for my sister in law.  Otherwise you wouldn't have been able to tell it was a wedding event.
 My sister in law was so excited to have the flag and the sash. I also got her a veil that said "I do" on the ends. It was really cute.
 I made up little goody bags for each of the girls.  The tags I bought in a pack at Michael's and I added some ring stickers on the bags.
Ok, I am not the best at photo editing, but I wanted to show this picture because it is the closest picture I have of the food. I cut out the flower girl's face since I didn't ask her mom if I could post this picture.  So, that block is where her face was in the picture. LOL  They had some wonderful rosette breads that were some type of cinnamon bread.  They also had mini cheesecakes.  Everyone had their own individual pot of tea which was wonderful.  They had cucumber sandwiches and also mini pimento cheese sandwiches which I loved.

So those are the pictures from the tea.  Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!

Later Gator

I will be posting later today with pix of the tea! In the mean time, grab a glas of sweet tea because it is gonna be a hot one today!

Darn pictures

I have been on the road driving kids from one thing to another, so I haven't had a chance to pull pix off my camera.  But needless to say we all had a great time at the tea on Saturday. So hopefully I'll get to post some pix and an update before the end of this week. 

In the meantime, we are all trying to stay cool as the heat index was at 101 here yesterday.  Even the dog wants to jump in the kiddie pool.

Hope you are having a great day in your neck of the woods!
