Tips for The Perfect 4th of July Barbecue?

Having a grand barbecue does not have to cost a fortune.  Kroger's brand hamburgers, buns, potato chips, pop and frozen treats will keep your expenses down.  Recently I had the grandkids over for Father's Day and our family was surprized to hear that the majority of the food and drinks was the Kroger's brand.  With the money I  saved on the groceries I was able to buy squirt guns and water balloons for the kids to play with.  The best part was all the compliments the chef received for a delicious meal. 

As a Member of BzzAgent I was able to participate in this campaign in exchange for my honest views.
Kroger has made our family fans forever.  For those who are watching their calories, they have a delicious healthy frozen treat, yogurt bars.  Only 50 calories per serving.  My grandchildren loved them and asked for more.  Don't miss out, buy Kroger Brand.

Debbie Morris's The Blessed Woman

Debbie Morris's The Blessed Woman is a definite must read for all women walking the Christian faith.  What she so wisely relates to us is that the women  of the Bible were not so much different than ourselves and they faced similar difficulties and challenges.  By using scripture to back up her points, Debbie successfully proves to us that we all have weaknesses and fears yet God truly loves his people and continues to work with them as long as they rely on him.  There are so many uplifting lessons in this book.  I could really relate to her chapter on Hagar "Finding Purpose in The Midst of Pain" because of my own experiences. The author shares the stories of  all the woman of the Bible who found Grace through God and they serve as examples for all of us.  I received this awesome read from Waterbrook Multnomah in exchange for my sincere review.  The Blessed Woman holds hope for everyone who reads it.

The Husband's Homies Fill Up On My Kroger Frozen Yogurt Smoothie Bars

My husband had asked his fellow employee buddies over to watch The Detroit Tigers Baseball Game on his big screen television in his man cave.  His man cave is in the garage along with our freezer.  I went out ahead of time to supply the goodies and drinks for their get together. I bought Kroger Chips and peanuts, cookies and pretzels.  Never would I ever imagine that my husband would offer his friends the Kroger Frozen Strawberry Banana Yogurt Smoothie Bars that I got for my Bzz Agent Campaign.  None of his buddies are worried about their weight or even knew that this treat is only 50 calories.  I found out after the fact when everybody went home and I found the empty box.  This attests to how delicious they are.  I scolded my husband for not allowing me to do my thing by giving a speech .  He just laughed and said that we will have to buy more boxes and tell them all next time.  Kroger's  Yogurt Smoothie Bars are not only for those counting calories.

Dr. Scholl's Puts Wings On My Feet

In 2005 my spinal cord specialist told me that my tarlov cyst disease would lead to damaging my nerve endings and some organs.  So the diagnoses of neuropathy should have came as no surprize last month.  Walking became a major problem with consistant pain but I refused to let it win over the best of me. When I was asked as a Bzz Agent if I would like to try Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles for Women, I jumped at the chance.  Already being enrolled in a walking program and as a Group Moderator, I was anxious to see if these would ease my condition.  The insoles are made to wear with work boots or shoes, casual shoes or sandals which seemed to cover all the bases.  They promise super shock absorption and much needed support.  I was so excited to try the insoles on that I forgot to put on stockings.  Immediately I grabbed the dog leash for my pet's daily walk.  I had very little pain in comparison to what I usually experience and I was able to go twice as far as I normally do.  Proud to say that I traveled two miles instead of one minus stockings.  I would find out later that when wearing socks with the insoles I was almost totally out of pain.  What a relief to acheive this status without using a medication.  My next goal is to alert my doctor.  I feel like I have hope again and look forward to participating in many activities that I was afraid to enjoy in the past that involved a lot of walking like going to the zoo or Busch Gardens, Disney World and such.  Dr. Scholl's Massaging Gel Insoles have proven to be a real life saver for me.  The price is less than a pair of shoes and they last up to six months if  worn daily.  I truly recommend and will continue to do so.
