Purina Pro Selects Review & Giveaway

This is a sponsored review by BlogHer and Purina.


Our dogs mean the world to us—they are like four legged children who think we do no wrong!! They can’t see our flaws, their always happy, they know when we are sad, and a lick on the cheek can make any day better. They are spoiled—they know it—and we are ok with that J Our dogs are such agreeable friends - they ask no questions, they pass no criticisms!






I can’t imagine our infertility journey without these three dogs—especially for me. There have been endless nights that I’ve spent in tears with all three pups by my side! One of the greatest gifts we receive from dogs is the tenderness they evoke in us!

I watch my dogs--They throw themselves into everything they do; even their sleeping is wholehearted.  They aren't waiting for a better tomorrow; or looking back at their glory days—everyday is a good day that they enjoy thoroughly.

They are amazing creatures who give unconditional love! That’s why there health means the world to us!! With our first dog, Peanut, we struggled with what type of food to feed her; it seemed as though everyone we tried made her sick…that was until we tried Purina; from then on out that’s was all our dogs ate, from puppies to adults; Purina all the way!!!

So when I was contacted by BlogHer about doing a review for Pro Plan-Selects I couldn’t pass it up!! Humans watch what they eat; it’s important for you to give the same care to your dogs!!



We choose Natural Salmon and Brown Rice Formula for our beloved four legged children—



Can I just say they LOVED it! They pretty much love anything honestly, but you can tell when they devourer there dish in under 5 seconds that they are digging it  J

General Mills Review

Recently I was given the opportunity to do a review for General Mills Convenience Store Sweet and Salty Snacks.

Our little goody package came with:

Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate, Bugles Hot Buffalo, and Nature Valley Oats N' Dark Chocolate Crunchy Granola Bars... the day after I received this package Zach was heading out to IL to see his family. I was packing him a 'munchie basket' for the car ride there, and thought what better than to pack this in his basket. I kept myself a package of the Bugles because I haven't had them in forever, and I was dying to know how the Hot Buffalo tasted....can I just say TO DIE FOR! I love chips with a little 'kick' to them and thats exactly what these had!

Zach called me on his way there and said that the Cocoa Puffs Treats were amazing, tasted just like the cereal in the box and it made his morning (great! I'm glad I packed it for him!!!) He also loved the Natures Valley Oats N Dark Chocolate...he is all about high in fiber and protein and he basically feel in love with this treat!


And as an added bonus they sent us this awesome shirt (which is too big for me but Zach loves it) and a mug for our coffee (which Zach's dad begged him for one...I might need to contact them and see if I can get an extra one to send his dad as a surprise...haha!)




The prize packs and information were all given to me from General Mills through MyBlogSpark.
