National Consumer Panel seeking members!

Image
Join me at  NCP (click here)
This is a Nielsen based company so if you are a member of one of their other ventures like Nielsen Digital Voice you can only be on one panel. Basically what you do is scan your purchases and send the info once a week. That is  my little scanner above ↑ Their motto is "Your Voice. Your Impact. Your Reward. " Kinda says it all pretty simply ! They also have surveys to further your impact (and add to your points ;D ). These are generally pretty short and some of the best written I have taken. You can use these points to donate to charity or redeem in their gift catalog. I keep getting tempted in the catalog however I have my eye on a big prize so I have been good at saving them. Speaking of prizes there are always some sweepstakes going on . I won some points last month (I like surprises!) and this month received extra points for my birthday! Sweet surprises and Happy Scanning!

Oh Yeah ~ Yummy Earth Organic Fruit Lollipops

Image
Yummy Earth Organic Lollipops are stellar and available at local stores such as Toys 'R Us , Whole Foods and Publix (to name a few) as well as online at Amazon , yummyearth.com etc. They were created by a couple of guys who knew their babies were going to soon be asking for candy and these are not only delicious ~trust me they pop on your taste buds when you pop them in your mouth ~they are 100% vegan. ALSO they are Gluten, GMO, Nut, Soy, Wheat and Dairy free. Each lollipop is only 22 calories. They have more products also like drops and gummies! I received a .3 oz bag (15 yummy lollipops) from swaggable.com and I was very impressed by the product so I am blogging about it!

Crayola Mouse - Compact Size for *KIDS* and ME

Image
I wanted a new mouse and I have fairly small hands. While looking at the wall of Mice (mouses?) I spotted this fun little beauty. I am having to get used to having a plug-in mouse however no batteries needed. I have arthritis especially in my right hand so I wanted a compact mouse. Perfect fit.Even lights up! You could even share it with the kids :D !

So Easy - Homemade Banana Muffins

Image
I almost always have bananas on hand. Sometimes I do not get around to eating them though so I have learned they are great for cooking! :D I like this recipe because it is pretty easy. Preheat oven to 375 3 large bananas the riper the better 3/4 cup sugar 1 egg, slightly beaten 1/3 cup melted butter ( I used the microwave then popped in the fridge as you do not want the butter to start cooking the egg!) Mash bananas. Add sugar and egg. Add melted butter. 1 & 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon baking powder Sift together dry ingredients and add to banana mixture. Mix until moistened (Over stirring results in tough muffins!) Bake twenty minutes. Yield: 12 Big Nuff Muffins! I had some walnuts on hand so I crumbled them up and threw them in during the final stir. Yep you fill the cups up this high...Enjoy!

Lately I have been exploring the various media at my fingertips. I will start out with a simple idea and end up expanding into a long journey! Today I was just trying to change my header on my blog. I ended up joining Picasa and uploading all my photos (I think)- this is huge! I did manage to change my header :D Work in progress...it is huge! What do you think?
