Tuttorosso Tomatoes {Plus a Giveaway}


My family and I truly are in love with Italian food-- I personally could probably eat Italian food everyday and would be the happiest person ever! I wish I was one of those cooks that had the patience and talent to make homemade red pasta sauce, but I'm not. I would much rather grab a can of all natural Tuttorosso Tomatoes and add my own spices to it and enjoy home cooked Italian dinner's that way!

I was sent a few cans of Tuttorosso's tomatoes: Diced Tomatoes, Crushed Tomatoes with Basil (No Salt Added), and Tomato Puree.


I am very impressed with the quality of these tomatoes. They're not too acid-icy or bland, but have a nice rich tomato flavor! I recently boiled up some spaghetti noodles and in a pot add the crushed tomatoes with basil, and added more spices like oregano, italian seasoning, garlic, salt and a little bit of sugar and it was just too good; I probably ate more pasta that night than I should have, and the sauce was of course the star of dinner!

My mother-in-law has given me this yummy Sausage Perlo recipe when my hubby and I first married almost 7 years ago and I can't wait to make it with the diced tomatoes I was sent!!! Yummo!

Baby Mum-Mum Snack Line {Guest Review + A Giveaway}


The following is a guest review from Savy Mommy Moment's! Savy Mommy Moment's was sent the product(s) featured in this post in exchange for this review. The opinions are 100% her own.

We are a family always on the go and with three kids under five in tow, it's important to always have easy, delicious, non-perishable and healthy snacks on hand.
I'll never forget the time I got desperate for a snack for Savy Preschooler when he was 9 months old and our trip to the baby store was taking longer than expected.  I browsed the shelves and immediately came upon Baby Mum-Mums.  At first, when I took them out of the package, I was hesitant and a little bit skeptical that he would actually like them and could eat them without choking.  Almost immediately, my fears subsided as he grasped one in his little fingers and put it into this mouth.  He looked right at me and gave me the biggest gummy grin.

Since that moment, Baby Mum-Mums have been a staple for each of our children, so I was thrilled to be offered the chance to review their entire product line for you. For review, we received:

Baby Mum-Mum in Vegetable and Original. These are really great for little ones who are learning to feed themselves! They easily dissolve inside their mouths and both Savy Preschooler and Savy Toddler loved these two flavors.  I can't wait for Savy Baby to try them out very soon!


Toddler Mum-Mum in Strawberry & Banana.  We discovered these when Savy Toddler turned just over a year old and we wanted to start giving her snacks that were more geared towards her age and eating level.  These were perfect because they were a little denser and sturdier than the baby ones, yet still easy for her to hold and feed herself without any worrd. She definitely loved both of these flavors and would constantly ask for more.


Mum-Mum Snax in Apple Cinnamon & Strawberry Banana.  I was really excited to discover these in the package! I had no idea they had come out with a version for Savy Preschooler and based on our extremely positive experiences with the baby and toddler versions, I couldn't wait to give them a try.  Just a few hours after receiving them, I decided to give them to Savy Preschool and Savy Toddler as a "dessert" treat after dinner.  Honestly, they had been begging me for some since I opened the package. Savy Toddler chose Apple Cinnamon and Savy Preschooler chose Strawberry Banana.  Immediately, they both loved them! What I love about them is that they are perfect for their ages, as they are more like a true cracker than a wafer.  The ingredients are organic and they contain no artificial colors or flavors.  Since the first time they tried them, they have had them several times over and loved them just as much. Both flavors are so delicious, that we open one package of each and they each get one of each flavor.

 
Overall, we really love the Mum-Mum snack line in our home! They are great for little eaters of any age and I highly recommend them for your family!

WiseDecor Wall Decals {Review + A Giveaway}



I've been remodeling each room in our home, I recently painted my kitchen & I've been wanting to create a "family tree" on the largest wall. So I browsed through the family photo's section at WiseDecor & I fell in love with the "Family Like Branches on a Tree" decal & I knew it would be perfect for my new wall!

At WiseDecor they offer a variety of decorative wall lettering to personalize your world! From motivational quotes to spiritual thoughts, photo wall captions & more, WiseDecor has a huge selection of wall decals to choose from.

If you don't see the perfect quote for you at WiseDecor, you can simply customize your own! That's right, WiseDecor allows you to change the font color, font style, even the size of the quote, then complete your purchase & your personalized product arrives at your front door!


It wasn't hard to get my new wall decal up, I just peeled off the back paper, taped it to the wall, then slowly peeled off the other layer of paper, revealing a beautiful quote applied to my wall. 

I started adding pictures & will soon add more, I can't wait to finish my "family tree" wall, my family loves it so far!


Megan at Housewife On A Mission also received a new wall decal for her home, here is what she had to say about WiseDecor:

I chose the "Family Established Design" & I was so excited when my wall decal arrived at my home! I had so much fun customizing my wall decal online, with the colors and text so I couldn't wait to see it in person!  


Applying the wall decal was easy-- I had my husband help me since our wall decal is so big and long. Once we got it applied to the wall above the couch, both my husband and I were and are very happy with it! It looks so smooth and classy, I can't wait to show it off when family and friends come over!

Dove Creme Mousse Body Wash with Nutrium-Moisture {Review}



I have been a huge Dove fan for many years; I love their deodorant, body washes, plus their shampoo and conditioners. I was recently sent a few bottles of their new Creme Mousse Body Washes and I'm excited to tell you about this new line from Dove!


NEW Dove Crème Mousse Body Washes feature a rich, whipped formula for a luxurious shower experience. The pearlescent crème texture of the new collection creates a lush lather, making them whipped, not dripped unlike some other body washes, as well as an ideal shave cream alternative. Dove Crème Mousse Body Washes, which replace the Dove VisibleCare Collection, are available at food, drug, mass, value, club and online retailers beginning April 2014.

With the highest concentration of NutriumMoisture™ across the Dove® portfolio combined with mild cleansers, Dove® Crème Mousse Body Washes help skin retain its natural moisture by replenishing lipids lost during cleansing, promoting skin’s elasticity and softness.

   

I was sent the Crème Mousse Deep Moisture Body Wash, the Crème Mousse Gentle Exfoliating Body Wash, and the Crème Mousse Sensitive Skin Body Wash. Each body wash smells awesome-- the sensitive skin body was has no scent. I love the creamy texture they each have. They leave my skin silky smooth and smelling great! With the creamy texture, I don't have to use a shaving cream to shave my legs which is nice-- one less things to worry about! I love this body wash line and I continue to love Dove! This line is brand new (released this month- April), so go ahead and check them out in a store near you!
