The Alvarado St. Bakery Winner has been announced and contacted. Please refer to my Facebook page for details. Thank you for all who participated. I hope to be running another giveaway once I get settled into a regular posting rhythm.
I will be announcing the winner for the Alvarado St. Bakery as soon as possible. I am sorry for the delay.
I have to be honest, I really have always had to be in the mood to eat tuna fish out of can. But, that was before I tried Wild Planet Albacore Tuna. This tuna is amazing! It is the freshest, tastiest canned tuna that I have ever had in my life. I even got my anti-canned tuna husband to try some and now he can’t get enough! This coming from a man who wouldn’t ever consider eating canned fish is a very big deal. This tuna is different from other canned fish. Wild Planet Tuna is caught wild, cooked once in the can retaining all it’s natural juices and Omega-3’s and packed without the addition of any water or oils. This process makes this tuna some of the freshest, natural canned fish on the market! I loved it so much that I wanted to share some with all of you.
So I partnered up with Wild Planet to offer two of you the opportunity to try out this delicious tuna for FREE!

“The Wild Way”
By, The Wild Planet team
“For millennia the earth has been a thriving, prolific planet teeming with life. It goes without saying that human survival is dependent upon the well being of earth’s ecosystem and, therefore, we all have a moral obligation to preserve and protect our wild planet by putting its health before economic gain.
To that end Wild Planet Foods is committed to looking for ways to maximize the health and resources of our wild planet and, thus, boost its food production output and its ability to sustain harvesting. Food is one of the most important things we can obtain from the planet. Wild Planet stands for a balance between producing healthy food while at the same time maintaining a flourishing planet. That is the WILD WAY.
Here at Wild Planet, we are serious about what we sell. Since 2004 we have been selecting only the finest quality, 100% sustainably caught seafood for all of our packaged products. We source our tuna exclusively from pole and troll catch fisheries, never using purse seine or long-line gear. Pole and troll fishing has been rated the best catch method for sustainability by a consensus of eco-organizations including The Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch ® Program, Greenpeace and Fishwise. It is our goal to provide market driven change in global harvest practices as well as impact consumer choices in seafood consumption through education.”

Thank you Wild Planet for this opportunity to share your wonderful products!
I have been using these bags for about two months now and I LOVE them! I was looking for an eco-friendly solution to snack bags and these have worked out perfect.
The zipper works great, they are sturdy and machine washable, which is exactly what a busy mom on the go like me needs!
They were so affordable ($7.99 for two!) I am thinking about ordering about 10+ more so I never have to buy plastic snack bags again!

My first ever giveaway! I can’t begin to tell you how blessed I feel to be given the opportunity to work with Alvarado St Bakery. For those of you not familiar with the brand, they are an organic food company based out of Northern California. They began creating organic baked goods during the “Food for people not for profit” movement in San Francisco back in 1979. They were originally part of a non-profit organization called the Red Clover Worker’s Brigade. In 1981 a worker cooperative was formed by five of the brigade workers. They purchased the bakery and ended up choosing the name Alvarado St due to a road sign they found stowed away inside.
Being that spouted breads freeze so well, they have been able to expand their company to supply their healthy, organic, whole grain breads across the globe. Their Sprouted Wheat Breads are now available in over 1100 Walmart Supercenters! You can find Alvarado St Bakery from “Small marts to Walmarts” across the USA!
Here is a complete list of the varieties now available at a Walmart near you:
The California Style Bread
Essential Flax SeedBread
Sprouted Cinnamon Raisin Bread
Sprouted Multi-Grain Bread
Sprouted Wheat Bread
Sprouted Diabetic Lifestyles Bread (low glycemic bread made for diabetics).
Their products can also be found and most supermarkets.
They also make bagels, buns, tortillas, pizza bread & granola!
They have graciously provided me withtwo varieties of their bread to sample, The California Style Bread & The Essential Flax Seed Bread. I have been deliciously sampling away and will have some interesting facts and pictures up within a few days.

Time has a tendency of slipping through my fingertips. A substantial amount of my life is spent fighting time. There’s just never enough of it. And sometimes when you get caught up in doing something you truly love (like this blog) you loose track of all the other things you need to balance in your life (like, your daughter, your husband, work, school and your house) which lands you in the middle of a little mini life crisis. I have been away from social media for around three weeks now. I wish that isn’t how things needed to be but, it is just the course my life naturally took. I love this blog and I love graphic design almost as much as I love feeling thin. I think all my ladies out there can collectively agree nothing quite compares to that. When I feel beautiful, I know that I can conquer the world.
I have not been feeling like I could conquer my morning cup of tea let alone the world lately. Too much came into my life at once and I needed to take a step back to figure out how to move forward. Things are finally settling in now and I am optimistically approaching some better weeks ahead.
Thank you all for your patience and, stay tuned I promise you won’t be disappointed!
The saying stands true for me. The love I feel for Summer is the strongest most unique feeling I never knew that I wanted. How could you possibly? It’s not like falling in love. Falling in love is passionate… reckless even. Choosing to have a child is deciding to dedicate the rest of your life to a person you don’t even know yet. But the very first moment I held her tiny innocent body in my arms, I understood what it is all about. She is an extension of me.
She has changed me in every possible way and taught me more than she could ever know. She has helped me to slow down and enjoy my life. She has made me believe that anything is possible. If you work hard enough and you devote yourself, you can accomplish anything. I truly believe that.
I believe in all of you just as you all believe in me.
My blog reached two milestones yesterday! Over 50 likes and followers! Now I know it’s not technically “big” but it is HUGE for me! I am so very excited at the response! Just bear with me, this is a new site and I am still working to build and focus my direction in an organized manner. See.. Organization: Teach me your ways. I promise, it will only get better!
I just want to say thank you. Thank you to each and every one of you who took the time out of your busy schedules to stop by my page. Thank you for all the likes, the comments and most of all thank you for following! Because without all of your encouragement, let’s be honest, blogging would just be nowhere near as fun now would it?!
Let’s encourage each other!
Let’s unite each other and share our ideas!
Let’s all just keep going!
Life is so short! Cherish the time you have! Love one another! Be happy! At any moment it could all be gone. How do you want to be remembered?! As someone scared off in the corner hiding from the world?! Or as someone brave enough to put their words out there for the world to see?! I respect each and every one of you for what you are doing. Thanks again, I am really feelin the love! 🙂
