Hi my blogger friends! These last couple of weeks have probably been the longest of my life while I was waiting on this giveaway to end. Now that we only have two days left, I feel a little better about posting things again. I know I probably should have been doing that all along, but I've had a lot more on my plate than I anticipated. Forgive me. I will be announcing the winner of the "green" bag giveaway on Wednesday, so don't forget to check back with me and see who won!
I would like to introduce you all to Nonna Joann Bruso, the author of the blog BabyBites. I have been thinking very much about the way my lifestyle has changed dramatically over the last several years and there are some things I really miss like being healthy, for example, and eating real food (not processed). In fact, I was a total vegan about seven years ago, but as different food allergies kept cropping up in my children I had to adjust a lot of how we ate. Having children kinda "done me in" so to speak. LOL! I'm kidding. My boys have really taught me how to be creative with cooking. I was blessed to find Nonna's page when I was reading an interesting article on a one year old happy meal which you can find here. Nonna's mission is to educate parents about feeding (and I mean really feeding) their children. She is very knowledgeable about processed vs. whole foods and gives valuable information, resources, and links about how to help picky eaters really learn how to eat their fruits and veggies (and grains) instead of the junk food standbys. If you're like me, you feed your kids what you think is best and give them the healthiest alternatives you can find. Nonna Joann's site and book are excellent resources for any parent looking to improve (or even correct) the way their children eat. Check out Nonna's site and have a great week!

Hi Everybody! I'm still here. . . just languishing under the insanely long deadline I gave myself for this giveaway. Ugh! Next time, one week (if that). I do want to say, however, that I am so pleased at my new hatters and all the comments and such! I hope that everyone will continue to ride with me as I find more stuff to talk about and things to share. I appreciate all of you and I look forward to the next destination! Have a super week!
