    Frosted Toast Crunch cereal giveaway #MyBlogSpark

    I recently purchased this new cereal for my son because he's a fan of the 'Toast Crunch' cereals. It's new and he likes to try new things so I wasn't afraid of that, what I was afraid of was that this box of cereal didn't stand a chance and would be gone in the blink of the eye as soon as the other kids found out about it. I was right. He loved it. And the box was gone that same night after my other kids heard about it.

    The main taste of this cereal is vanilla and I tried some without milk and even liked it. It is available in stores now and I highly recommend getting some. If your kids like Cinnamon Toast Crunch they will love this one too.

    With 11 grams of whole grain, 9 grams of sugar and a good source of calcium, Frosted Toast Crunch offers a good start to the day.

    Doesn't this prize pack look great? I got one and my son won't eat out of any other bowl anymore, it's crazy. You can win this prize pack (provided by MyBlogSpark), it's so easy.

    Just follow me on Twitter @etxsaver and tweet about this giveaway and you will be entered. Leave a comment below with a link to your tweet below. You can get another entry by following me and posting about this giveaway on Facebook. Don't forget to leave a link below in the comment section.

    100 Calorie Right Bites rebate. Try them for free!

    What a great time to try something new. I just saw this rebate here and I'm certainly going to try them out. This is valid until 8/31/12.

    Take your #BraveWoman pledge and start off 2012 right! #CBias

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote about my struggles when I was a young mother living in a bad relationship. If the internet had been around then my life would have been so much easier (yes, there was a time was when the internet was not in every household, believe it or not!)
    I have made a pledge to myself every year since getting out of that relationship, that I will be aware of my actions and the actions of others, that may put my happiness in jeopardy. What about you?
    You don't have to be involved in a bad relationship to make a pledge to yourself to be happy, to be aware, to be brave.
    Go to Brave Woman and make a pledge. Pledge to be brave. Now, that pledge can cover so many areas of your life but the bottom line is, we, as women, have to stand up for ourselves and not anyone push us around, whether it be a man or another female. Domestic violence has found a way into many people's lives, in so many different forms that it is up to us to stand up and not be afraid anymore. I know you can do it. If I can do it, anyone can do it.
    How can you be brave this year? And every year......
    Please take a minute, after you have made your pledge to be brave, to check out the Facebook and Twitter pages Brave Woman.

    We are all #BraveWoman.
