This looks so good, I’m going to give it a try this weekend!  But the other new flavors inspire me as well!  The Cucumber Ranch would be a great coating for a wonderful baked Salmon.

Chicken in the crock pot could be even easier by covering it with the Roasted Garlic Ranch.  Sweet Chili sounds perfect for Grilled Shrimp!  With very little effort you can create a new dinner entree your family will love with the help of these New Hidden Valley Ranch Flavors available at Walmart!

Not sure which new flavor to try first? How about a $1 coupon and try more than 1!

Get Social On AKC.org and Giveaway!

by Pennie on June 28, 2015

akclogo

www.AKC.org has undergone some major renovations in 2015. You may not have noticed all the innovative changes we’ve taken to bring you a better digital experience.

We’d like you to explore the newest social compatibilities AKC.org has to offer, like our Breed Selector and You vs. Breed features. These added components allow you to dive deeper to get a better understanding of what breed fits best for your lifestyle as well as what breed you most closely relate to based on what our algorithm deduces from your social media habits. Here’s a further break down of both experiences:

Breed Selector: Thinking about getting a dog but not sure which breed is the best fit for your lifestyle? AKC.org’s Breed Selector helps you get a jump start on your research with a simple, interactive questionnaire. The simple questionnaire asks questions like your location, living situation, household habits, etc. and, based on your answers, provides 5 breeds that fit well within your current lifestyle for you to learn about, as well as similar breeds.

Going through the breed selector was pretty interesting because plugged in my current conditions and got recommendations for breeds that I don’t currently have!  Does that mean that I am doing a disservice to my furry friends?  Do I have the wrong breeds for my current living conditions?  

I felt much better after I realized that you can compare breed types!  I plugged in the recommended breeds for my current conditions and then compared those dogs to the breeds I have now.  It turns out that my furry babies have very similar qualities to the recommended breeds!

You vs. Breed: Ever wonder what your animal spirit would be? Now you can know if you’re more of a laidback bulldog or a playful retriever with AKC’s You vs. Breed. The feature allows you to pick a breed of your choice and, based on your social media habits, find out how similar you are to that breed. Our algorithm evaluates energy, cleanliness, sociability, independence, playfulness, and more.

You vs Breed was entertaining!  The app somehow assesses your qualities based on my Facebook (in my case) info to see how you stack up against the breed you select!  Are you more like a collie or a terrier?  Try and see what you discover!

We encourage you to try the new AKC social experience. Start by going through our Breed Selector questionnaire and share your breed results. Were you surprised? Do you currently own one of those breeds? What’s your feedback? Next, try our You vs. Breed feature and share if you agree or disagree with the results and which breed you compared yourself to. Leave a comments with your results for a chance to win a $100 Amazon Gift Card.

Enter the Giveaway by leaving a comment here discussing the results of your social experience on the 2 new AKC features!  Enter once per person.  Winner of Amazon $100 GiftCard will be chosen by random selection.

Nicole is an AKC ambassador and has received compensation for her participation.  All opinions are our own.

all® introduces all®Radiant, a new liquid detergent designed to restore whites and protect colors over time at 30% less cost than the leading brand.  The result is clothing with a new lease on life, transforming dull hand-me-downs into beautiful and bright pass-me-ons!

 

Clothes take a beating and after excessive laundering, whites can look dingy and colors begin to fade. It’s an issue that is at the top of the list of common consumer laundry problems and frustrations.  New all® Radiant helps protect colors and makes dingy whites look whiter.

This is especially helpful when it comes to the idea of hand me downs. We have fond memories for clothes we love and don’t want to give them up and often share them with friends and family. But if the clothe are dull, dingy and faded they tend to get thrown out or put in a corner. Radiant keeps everyone in the family happy by helping to “pass along” out-grown clothing from older to younger siblings.

all® Radiant is now available in the laundry aisle at retail outlets nationwide, in sizes ranging from 46.5oz-141 oz for suggested retail prices from $4.25 to $8.50.

Nicole’s take:  I am a huge fan of all detergent and was excited to try the radiant line! Jamie wears the same clothes for work over and over and I wear the same clothes because I’m a busy mom of triplets with nowhere to go! So our clothes have been suffering until all radiant! I love the light scent and it left our clothes looking bright!

Can You Survive Baby Boot Camp?

by Pennie on June 26, 2015

bbc

The First Years® knows that parenting can be an exciting, messy, overwhelming and, at times, unpredictable. The First Years’ Baby Boot Camp game takes some of your typical parenting activities – feeding, soothing, potty training and cleaning – and lets you have a little fun with them. You’ll cycle through 4 short games that will have you swiping, tilting and tapping to make sure the babies are happy.

Hungry Baby: When it’s feeding time, you will need to drag the double-sided spoon into the baby’s mouth and release it when the mouth is open. Don’t miss or you’ll have a messy and hungry baby in your hands!

Potty Drop: For potty time, tilt your device to guide the little one safely onto the Hero in Training potty. This potty training may look easy at first but keep playing to perfect your skills.

Catch This: Once playtime begins, try to keep the floor clean by catching all the toys and sippy cups flying out of the play pen.

Sweet Silence: The final game requires you to calm an assembly line of unhappy babies by giving each baby a GumDrop® pacifier that is the same color as their outfit.

You can try and beat your high score or challenge your friends on Facebook.

As you continue to play, the game will get more challenging, but that’s just part of being a parent!

And all products featured are made by The First Years! Check out more at www.thefirstyears.com.

What a great game for new parents or parents to be!  This makes some fun out of the activities that can be very stressful babies.  Hopefully this will teach parents that there is fun to be had in even the most angst ridden times!

Download The First Years Baby Boot Camp game now for FREE from the Apple App Store or Google Play.
