Yummy Breakfast Bars

This post brought to you by Quaker Oats. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to have oatmeal for breakfast but don't always have the time to make it and eat it. I don't ever have the time in the morning to make a full breakfast with eggs and orange juice but it's still important to me to eat a healthy breakfast. But sometimes I have to run out the door and only have time to grab my coffee. 

A great alternative is to grab a bar and eat it in the car on the way to work with my coffee. A great and delicious way to grab a quick breakfast snack.

But the trick is finding a healthy bar that is a good addition to breakfast and will leave you energized and full. Some are so full of sugar and unhealthy that you basically should just eat a donut for all the good it does. But not with these breakfast bars.

The banana nut bread bars look so delicious! And with just 140 calories, 5g of fiber, and 6g of protein this is an excellent bar! I know my husband would love the Cinnamon Pecan Bread bars!

What makes these bars so yummy and appealing is that they are made from REAL fruit and nuts not just processed look alikes, they are really a wholesome food.

You can also try heating these up for a yummy bakery treat! Quaker Soft Baked Bar.

Favorite Neighborhood Drugstore Offer Helps During Dispute

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.


Walgreens is a favorite neighborhood drugstore of many but they have recently lost a negotiation that will have many negative effects on those in our communities, the cost of prescription drugs and even military families. 

Walgreens was negotiating a new contract with Express Script, a popular pharmacy provider that works with health insurances declined negotiations and as of January 1, 2012, Walgreens is no longer part of the their in network. You can the details of this at Walgreens and Express Script

Ultimately this means that those who use Express Script's and who have used Walgreens for years and have built relationships with their pharmacist will have to relocate to a new pharmacy that is possibly farther away and could potentially cost more per prescription. And as a result the neighborhood pharmacy could start to be diminished because of Express Script's push to use mail order prescription plans. 

Walgreens doesn't want to see communities and individuals hurt this way so they have developed the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. They are offering a special prescription savings club to ease the burden of higher costs and farther distances to new pharmacy's. For $5 per individual or $10 per family, Walgreens customers can become members that allow them to receive discount prices on their prescriptions. 

So if this Express Script and Walgreens dispute has left you facing higher prescription costs and inconvenient pharmacy options, then hurry in by January 31, 2012 to sign up for the Walgreens and Express Script

You can also join me and follow Walgreens on Twitter and Walgreens on Facebook to stay updated on the latest news and offers from Walgreens.

Grab the Girls and head to the Movies

This post brought to you by Monte Carlo. All opinions are 100% mine.


Sumer is the movie season. We have been anticipating all of spring that we would be going to many movies this summer and have saved in order to do so. 

But during the summer months it can seem like the only movies playing are the high budget action packed thrillers and action movies. Many of these are not suitable for kids and a few girls I know will be delighted to know that a new film is coming out just for them. 

Monte Carlo follows three girls who save and save for a dream trip to Paris that turns out to be less than dreamy. As their trip winds to an end, one of them is mistaken for a British heiress and whisked away to Monte Carlo for fun and adventure. {Sounds a bit like Princess Diaries. ..which I adore!!}

Check out the trailer here and let us know what you think. 

The film comes out this weekend and will be in theaters starting tomorrow! This is the perfect way to kick off your Holiday weekend. check out Fandango to get your tickets early! This way you know it won't be sold out and everyone can look forward to a fun Friday night at the movies. 

For more inside scoop check out their Facebook page and "like" the movie! Who are you taking to see this girly movie? I know some girls who wouldn't mind a fun girls night out at the movies.
