paintedpony

“With its creative pairing of art and Sculpture, every Painted Pony is a miniature work of art.”

Perfect for any horse enthusiast, particularly younger girls who love horses, these figurines are designed to be miniature works of art by combining detail with vibrant colors. The Trail of Painted Ponies recently released two new figurines, The Prairie Princess & Regalia.

A co-creation of pop artist Howie Green and TV legend Alison Arngrim, The Prairie Princess pony is a tribute to the ladies who made their homes on the prairies of America in the 1800s. Regalia is mirrored after the Janet Snyder Crow Indians who were renowned for colorful bead work and distinctive geometric compositions. Astride a Pony like “Regalia,” a Crow Indian would have been a strikingly powerful presence as he rode across the open plains.

Nicole’s take:  I hadn’t ever seen the Trail of Painted Ponies figurines before but just knew once I saw it that the Prairie Princess Pony would be perfect in the girls’ room! They are so delicate and fun and I put ours right on their dresser! The colors are vibrant and great and this is the perfect gift for a collector or a little girl!

  • Customizable Color Touchscreen

  • Smart, Flexible Scheduling

For More Information:

Nicole’s take:  Wow – technology is amazing and this Honeywell WiFi Thermostat is just so cool.  I was a little worried about Jamie installing it on his own but he did it! He ended up emailing a picture of our current thermostat set up to Honeywell and then calling them where they walked him through the installation. Ours was a little more complicated as we had a battery thermostat and no obvious power line.  So it took him a couple hours to get it set up but once the power issue was sorted out it was super easy! He connected it to our home wireless network and we were up and running! I love so many things about this thermostat and feel like I am finding out new features every day! The first thing I love is the ability to change the temperature in the house from my phone.  You just download the app and you’re ready to go! I also love that you could adjust the temperature if you’re going to be gone for a long time – in Florida our a/c runs pretty much constantly and this way we can save money by increasing the temperature when we won’t be home for a while.  The thermostat also tells you how humid it is in your house as well as the outside air temperature and humidity which are cool features.  The design is much sleeker than our old thermostat as well.

Cobra Corn Popcorn and Giveaway

by Pennie on April 21, 2014

cobracorn

The Cobra Corn— Bombay Seasoning (Mumbai Masala) recipe is the foundation for Dishoom Foods, founded by Mihir Shah. The bold and flavorful Cobra Corn recipe was concocted by Mihir’s mother, Dr. Teju Shah, a dedicated doctor, mother of four, and extraordinary cook! Teju was born and raised in India and relocated to the United States in 1964, where she raised a family in Lexington, Massachusetts.

While growing up in Lexington, MA, Mihir sought for American foods such as burgers, hotdogs and pizza in order to fit in with the rest of his friends. Mihir’s culinary transition had become a challenge for his mother who tried new ways to get Mihir to appreciate her cooking. One day she surprised him with a batch of uniquely flavored popcorn when he arrived home from high school. After his first bite he was instantly hooked on the flavorful popcorn! And so Cobra Corn was born!

Cobra Corn is non-GMO, gluten-free and vegan and has sugar-free varieties.  It has no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, no cholesterol and no trans fats.  All Cobra Corn products are made in the USA and flavored with real spices, each with an assortment of health benefits.  Bombay Spice popcorn is made from the secret recipe of the founder’s mom, which boasts a bold, unique flavor with a signature blend of 10 delicious, eastern Indian spices including turmeric, paprika and cayenne pepper.

For More Information:

Nicole’s take:  So when these arrived I wasn’t sure what to think.  The 3 flavors are so different but we love to try new things so we dug right in! We first tried the Himalayan sea salt and thought it was good and then we tried the Bombay Seasoning and LOVED it.  It had such great Indian spice flavor and the combo of the spice and the popcorn was perfect! Last we tried the Caramel Chai.  We both like Chai so I wasn’t surprised that we enjoyed this flavor.  It wasn’t overly sweet as popcorn like this can sometimes be.  For us the winner was the Bombay Seasoning – it is so unique and tasted great!

Enter the Giveaway!

One reader can win 2 bags of each Cobra Corn flavor! Please enter the giveaway on the widget below.  Email and feed subscribers will need to click over to my actual site to enter.

EntenmannsLogo

Kids can be recycling pros and turn trash into cash for their schools through a new campaign with snack time favorite Entenmann’s Little Bites to create a fully recyclable lunch!

The Entenmann’s Little Bites “Recycle… Reuse… Replenish” Fully Recyclable Lunch Earth Day campaign teaches kids the importance of reducing waste while earning money for their schools by redeeming Little Bites pouches for cash and points with recycling partner TerraCycle® through the Entenmann’s Little Bites Pouch Brigade®.

terracycle

Entenmann’s Little Bites “Recycle…Reuse…Replenish” Fully Recyclable Lunch Tips:

Recycle

  • Check-it: look for numbers and recycling symbols on plastics to know what types get reused
  • Not sure what to do with your Little Bites pouches? Now you can recycle them with the TerraCycle Brigade programs and sign up  your school if it is not already participating. Check out what other lunch items TerraCycle recycles.

Reuse

  • Put your sandwich in reusable lunchbox container to take home and use again
  • Before you toss anything away, stop to think about how you might be able to use it again.  TerraCycle’s team of designers makes products out of wrappers and packaging.  Check out TerraCycle’s DIY Projects for ideas.

Replenish

  • Have any leftovers from lunch? Before you throw away, make sure to check out what biodegradable foods can be brought back home to be added to a compost pile.
  • Make compost at home! Be sure to include the three basic ingredients: Browns (dead leaves, branches, twigs, cardboard, newspaper), Greens (grass clippings, vegetable waste, fruit scraps, coffee grounds) and Water to make an effective outdoor composting area.  Check out more info from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The TerraCycle recycling programs reward the schools with cash or charity gifts for each pouch received. Parents can make a difference, too. To learn how to become a team leader and get your children’s school signed up to recycle Entenmann’s Little Bites pouches, please visit TerraCycle.com. Entenmann’s Bakery also launched a sweepstakes on Facebook through April where fans can win weekly prizes, including a grand prize of $5,000 cash. That would fund a fantastic Earth Day Garden!

For More Information:

Nicole’s take:  We are huge Entenmann’s fans in my house, I can always remember having the chocolate frosted donuts in the house! I also love companies that give back and try to help the community and that is definitely happening here! The Little Bites Snickerdoodles are my favorite but I haven’t had a  variety I don’t like!

Enter the Giveaway!

One reader can win (4) $5 Entenmann’s Little Bites Coupons, a $25 Home Depot Gift Card, and a Little Bites Reusable Lunch Sack ($15 value)! Please enter the giveaway on the widget below.  Email and feed subscribers will need to click over to my actual site to enter.

Terra_Tropical-5oz_011414

For More Information:

Nicole’s take:  I am a big snacker and since the babies have been born pretty much only leave the house to go with them to the doctor.  I try to get to the grocery store once a week and if not, someone else will go for me.  I was so excited to try these new Hain snacks – they all looked so good! I really liked the Garden of Eatin Butternut squash tortilla chips.  They almost had a creamy taste to them and I liked how they were ever so slightly sweet.  I also liked the Terra Tropical Blend! They are super crunchy and I love the different flavors combined!
