Harvest Snaps - Healthy Guilt Free Snacks

As a parent, I have to find ways to change up our snack menu whenever possible. Kids love finding new foods that taste great. Of course if it doesn't look so good, they wont want it.
And if it looks like veggies, it better taste like mine, or they wont want it either :)

We were sent the Harvest Snaps to taste and review.



The kids tasted and say they didn't like.
We tried with dip and still they are mind block by the veggie feel.
You see why I steam all their veggies and gravy it?

Anyhooo, for me, it is an easy and healthy snack.

I love the variety of flavors and especially the healthier choice it offers.

My favorite flavor is the Wasabi Ranch, and the kids too actually. I supposed everything tastes better with ranch. :)



There are other flavors that I like too, but my favorite is the Wasabi.  If you've tasted the snapea crisps, what are your favorite flavors?

These are perfect to shake up the after school snacks and also gift a teacher in a little to-go tote gift. Grab some and enjoy with your family and share the healthy!



Harvest Snaps Nutritional Information:

Always For You - When Friendship Is No Longer Enoough - There's Always Love

Grab a book and enjoy some quality time, while running around with family on this Thanksgiving.  Or tell me something you want to read nex ton your list, or what story you are engaged in at the moment. 


Always For You - Tawdra AlwaysMaureen Evans has had a crush on Smith Harrington since they were in college together. She always knew he didn’t see her as anything more than his best friend—just one of the guys—but that didn’t stop her from weaving sexy fantasies about him.

Now, after years of maintaining a long-distance friendship, Smith’s moving to Burton, Georgia, Maureen’s hometown, to become her partner at the veterinary clinic.

After all this time, she should be able to handle working with him without getting hot and bothered. Or maybe not. The more determined Maureen is to maintain their just-friends bond, the more Smith seems intent on testing those boundaries.

And when flirting crosses the line into something more, it ends in a night neither of them can forget. When friendship is no longer enough, there’s always love.

Sunday Busyness With Many Rivers To Cross For Paris #Music

It seems all my Sundays are getting busier!!! Nooooooo! I wanted quiet Sundays. Sundays where I did not cook or go anywhere or see anyone for that matter. Nope.
So I've decided to take Saturdays as my rest day. I will have to stop cleaning and getting groceries and all those things I think should be done on Saturdays.

The husband is home again. I pray for growth for us.


By now you have seen the horror that happened in France. I hope you are praying and not just thinking about it and then forgetting. It's hard to imagine the terrible things these people have gone though, are going through.

And while we can think of all the things to do to these people. Martin says it best: Only love can drive out hate.

The Football Playoffs #Giveaway - ARV $125

My husband is home, which means he is going to be watching as much football as possible. I don't mind. He works hard and should enjoy what he likes.  

I like to watch every now and then, but not when I feel I have to. 

At the moment, I could be more joyful, but I can't muster. I'm in the Fantasy football, and unlike last year when I was on fire, this year I'm being slapped around like a pinata! I think this is my last play before the playoffs and I hope  I go out with a win.

It's Not Over Yet - #Music For The Soul

Many times the lyrics just says it all.
Music is simply amazing.

I had a VERY relaxed, working, and fun weekend with my children. I think they too enjoyed it.  It was that my weekends were busier than during the week. I think this constant rain has been a blessing. I took my weekend off and I've never felt better, except today since I didn't sleep last night :)

But let's dance y'all!


It's like a constant war
And you wanna settle a score
But you're bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest hearts






They are inside your head
You got a voice that says
You won't get past this one
You won't win your freedom

It's like a constant war
And you wanna settle a score
But you're bruised and beaten
And you feel defeated

This goes out to the heaviest hearts

(Chorus)
Oh, to everyone who's hit their limit
It's not over yet, it's not over yet
And even when you think you're finished
It's not over yet, it's not over yet
Keep on fighting
Out of the dark, into the light, it's not over
Hope is rising
Never give in, never give up, it's not over
Yet, whoa, yet, whoa

Game, set, match
Time to put it in your past
Feel the winter leaving
It's redemption season
Long live the young at heart
Cheers to a brand new start
We're revived and breathing
To live a life of freedom

Until the kingdom comes
We'll run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up
No, no never give up
Until the kingdom comes
We'll run till the race is won
Don't you ever give up
We will never give up
