HONY'S LITTLE HUMANS by Brandon Stanton Review


We were sent an advance copy of LITTLE HUMANS by Brandon Stanton which is on sale now. Have you heard of Humans of New York, or HONY as it’s often called? It’s one of the world’s most popular blogs, with 10 million followers who seek out Brandon’s posts featuring photos of the people he encounters on the street in New York (and sometimes around the world) and their words about their fears, hopes, and dreams. It's a real eye opener to read and learn about the everyday people we walk by everywhere we go. I just love it!

Among the most popular posts on HONY are the ‘Today in Microfashion’ photos, which feature the wacky, wonderful children of NYC. The popularity of these posts inspired Brandon to create LITTLE HUMANS, a book exclusively composed of pictures of children, with sparse text telling a story that’s designed to be read out loud. It’s really simple, but it’s also a wonderful showcase of the brilliant, vibrant, diverse children of New York (that also shows that New York kids aren't really all that different from children everywhere!)

My Little Humans loved reading this book, taking turns reading each page. They enjoyed this book and even picked out their favorite Little Humans.

Check out HONY on Facebook too!

Limited Edition TruMoo Orange Scream Review & Orange Brownie Trifle Recipe


If you’re looking for a frightfully delicious drink to serve your little ghosts and goblins this Halloween, look no further than new Limited Edition TruMoo Orange Scream milk. Inspired by an orange frozen popsicle with vanilla ice cream, this new creamy orange milk is great on its own or as an ingredient in tasty Halloween treats. Scroll down below if you dare to see the Orange Brownie Trifle I made!

Like regular TruMoo, the nation's leading ready-to-serve chocolate milk brand, TruMoo Orange Scream is made with wholesome low-fat white milk and with no artificial growth hormones or high fructose corn syrup, you’ll be happy when it casts a spell on you and your family.


We were sent on a shopping trip to Target to purchase TruMoo Orange Scream and get the family some frightful Halloween costumes. Once home we tasted the TruMoo Orange Scream milk. Mmm yum, it sure tastes like a creamsicle! The kids loved it! I had to hide some for my recipe below.

Find TruMoo near you! TruMoo Orange Scream is available for a limited time so hurry!




We had a great time shopping around and playing with all the costumes.
The costumes we found to wear on the frightful night are: A Lumberjack Mr., a Devilish me, a Creepy Zombie Little Boy and our Little Girl will put together a Dead Rollerskater costume! Oh and for Mr. Winks, we'll fix up this Pirate costume to fit him (perfect for his one eye!). Our oldest wasn't quite sure what to be. 


Our store had just two containers left! We quickly grabbed them.

Spooky!

He really wanted this for his trick or treat candy! Haha I don't think so!



Orange Brownie Trifle

adapted from Wine & Glue

Brownie Mix (I used a gluten free boxed one)
5.1 oz Vanilla Instant Pudding Mix
2 Cups TruMoo Orange Scream milk
Whipped Topping
Halloween Candies for topping

Make brownies according to directions (I made a 9x13 pan size) and let cool completely.
While brownies are baking and cooling, mix together the pudding mix and the TruMoo Orange Scream and let set up in the refrigerator.
In 6 small cups, layer the pudding, a few chunks of brownie, and more pudding. Top with the whipped topping, and add a candy to the top.

We loved these little creepy cups of treats, they are worth screaming about!


We're still having some warm weather here, don't these Monster Mash Floats sounds delicious?

Back-To-School with Harvest Snaps: Giveaway and Review #HarvestSnapsFan



We're back to school this week and I'll be sticking some of these delicious Harvest Snaps in my kiddos lunches. They're a delicious healthier swap for regular potato chips. Harvest Snaps are baked, gluten-free, high in fiber and protein, low in sodium and fat. Harvest Snaps are great in taste, texture, a healthier alternative, convenient and guilt-free.

Harvest Snaps come in six delightful flavors:


- Snapea Crisps Wasabi Ranch
- Snapea Crisps Caesar
- Snapea Crisps Lightly Salted
- Snapea Crisps Black Pepper
- Lentil Snaps Onion Thyme
- Lentil Snaps Tomato Basil


As a member of the Harvest Snaps Influencer Program, I was sent a free Snack Box filled with 6 full-size bags of their favorite Harvest Snaps flavors. So I'm sharing the love by offering an extra variety pack of Snaps to one lucky fan of my blog! Read on...

The Tomato Basil I thought had quite a punch of flavor. You know what would be good? Crunch these up and coat chicken with them as a "breading" before baking!


Make your own creative lunch with Lunchspiration and you could win up to $1,000 for school or Harvest Snaps swag!

I absolutely loved the Wasabi Ranch Snapea Crisps! I love the bite that wasabi has. I'm a little happy my kiddos didn't like it, haha.


Requirements for this giveaway:
• Visit the Harvest Snaps Lunchspiration microsite
• Create a unique bento box and share to your social network or Pin it to Pinterest
• Come back here & copy and paste that link in a comment on THIS blog post and comment what flavor Harvest Snap you'd like to try
