Happy Family Review & Giveaway

Happy Family Review & Giveaway

Do you purchase organic/all natural foods for your household? 
How about for your Children? 

I came across a brand called HappyFamily.
Happy Family is always organic. They never use anything artificial. There are no preservatives, no GMO's, no trans fats. 
HappyFamily also supports organic farming & green packaging!

They also are a proud supporter of Project Peanut Butter-for every package sold they are helping feed the world's starving children.

I was sent coupons to purchase the items I wanted in the flavors I wanted. Along with my coupons I received a recipe & nutritional guide!
This is what I chose:

HappyBites-Veggie Tot & Mac + Cheese (Packed W/Veggies & Protein)

HappyTot Pouch-Apple, Butternut Squash & Sweet Potato, Apple, Carrot, Cinnamon (Made W/Antioxidants & Fiber, Super Grain Salba-Which Naturally Has Omega 3 Fatty Acids)

I was very impressed with these products and I was proud to serve them to my kidos. I want the best for their little tummies! 

My Princess started off with a HappyTot Pouch-

She Loved It & Was Asking For More When It Was All Gone!

Later In The Day We Had The HappyBites. (I baked them in the oven)
Brother Wanted In On This Yummy Goodness As Well! :)


My Princess Also Loved The HappyMunchies.
She Couldn't Get Them In Her Mouth Fast Enough!

My FEAT Meeting

I attended my first ever Autism Parent Support Group meeting last night!

Can I just say WOW!

I am kicking myself for never going prior to last night!

I met some amazing people & their stories! I was so glad to be able to converse with parents who knew exactly what I was going through with my Big Guy! 

I got some new ideas/tips and I am so excited for next month's meeting!

I encourage each and every parent out there who is raising a child with a special needs to find a support group or system. It is life changing! 

Here are a few helpful links-

Do not be afraid to ask questions at your support group meetings as well. Talk to your therapist, school teachers, etc. Google has also been a big help to me!

Good People

So I got so much accomplished today!

The sun finally decided to show itself! Yay!

I did lots of cleaning around the house and than had some extra time to get a few errands done before it was time to pick up my Big Guy from school.

One of my first errands was to Kid to Kid.

I stopped at Kid to Kid to look around and also drop off a box of things to sell.
1st off-Have you ever been to a Kid to Kid? It's heaven. I go all the time! Lol. 
2nd off- I just had Princess with me, so I got her out of the car, than attempted to grab my box to sell from the back. The lift gate is hard to shut with no hands, so as I was about to put the box back in the back and just deal with it an other day.

When...
A friendly gentlemen who was leaving the China restaurant next door, offered to help out and shut the lift gate for me. (He had his hands full with Chinese food bag & a drink) I told him Thank You and that I greatly appreciated it! Than he said here let me get that for you and opened the door to Kid to Kid. I thanked him again and told him to have a good day.

I adore people who help just to help. It gives me faith that there are still good people in this world! 

I always say Hello, Thank You, Have a Great Day,etc and smile to almost everyone. 
Even if it's just stopping into QT to get gas, or going through the Chick-Fil-A drive thru. 
(Which by the way, QT & Chick-Fil-A never fail me! I always get greeted, Thanked, etc. It's amazing!)

I hope that my smile or simple Thank You makes someones day as easily as it makes mine!

Oh and when my Pacifica decides it's time with me is done, I will be getting this baby. Oh yeah, because not only does it have sliding automatic side doors, but an automatic lift gate! Yes, it's a mommy van, but guess what, I'm a momma! :) I wish I could personally shake the hands of the genius that invented this thing! :) 

I am also excited to be attending my first ever Autism Parent Support Group tomorrow night! I will let you know how it goes :)


Happy Tuesday!
We've had lots of rain, thunder & lightning! 
Although we live in Tx, we always welcome the rain! :)


Hubby & I Are Celebrating Our Wedding Anniversary Today!



I love this Man, he is amazing! 

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!
