Monte Carlo - Must See Summer Movie!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Monte Carlo. All opinions are 100% mine.


Do you have a daughter, sister, niece, cousin, or other girl you just love to spend time with? You should call up that girl of yours and make a date to see the must see movie of the summer, Monte Carlo. If you haven't heard about it or see the previews you can check out the movie trailer, (below).

Grace (Selena Gomez) is an ordinary girl who becomes accidental heiress when a summer trip to Paris turns into the fantasy of a lifetime. One a dream vacation, Grace, along with her best friend and step-sister, discover that the greatest adventure is finding out who they really are.

Monte Carlo will be in theaters on July 1st and starting on June 29th, you can get advance tickets from Fandango. You can also like the Monte Carlo Facebook page to keep updated on all movie details and all things Monte Carlo.

I know a few young girls who would love to see this movie and it would be great to plan a girlie date and go to a dinner and a movie. What girl wouldn't love that? While I'm not usually a fan of teen girl movies, I am actually really liking the idea of this movie. It doesn't seem like a lot of the other cheesy teeny-bopper movies that are put out these days. It actually looks like a cute movie that any girl, young or old, could love.

Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch

Recently my family and I were able to try Cocoa Puff's new cereal, Cocoa Puff's Brownie Crunch.

"With the delicious taste of brownies “baked” into every bowl, Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch is a delicious chocolate-y cereal ready to be enjoyed for breakfast or as a satisfying snack on the go. You will be sure to get some brownie points as your family’s taste buds delight in the perfect balance of whole grain goodness and delicious chocolate flavor in every bite."

This cereal is delicious. I am not a huge fan of chocolate cereal but I like this one. It has a definite chocolate flavor without being overwhelmingly sweet. My favorite thing about the cereal is how crunchy the cereal stays to the very last bite. It's delicious.

Not only were we given a box of Cocoa Puffs Brownie Crunch, we were also given a great little prize pack. In this prize pack, we were given the box of cereal, 2 to-go cereal mugs and a cocoa puffs frisbee.

My favorite part about this whole prize pack is the to-go mugs. They're simply genius. You can put the bottom (detachable) blue part in the freezer for 1-4 hours to freeze, then place your favorite milk inside. Then put your dry cereal in the top and with the attached spoon, you'll be enjoying your favorite cereal anywhere. This would be the perfect way to send your child to school with breakfast if you're running a bit late. How perfect is that?

Please visit Big G Growing Up Strong to learn more about healthy cereal choices for your family. You can also visit Whole Grain Nation to learn how to add more whole grains to your families diet.

What I love best about this bouncer is the ease of use, ease of set up and the plush comfort of this bouncer. I love the two body recline positions that are great for babies who don't like to be flat on their back or sat up straight. I have used a few other bouncers and they definitely don't have this feature. I also love the soothing songs this bouncer plays and the vibration it offers. My son LOVED that. Being pregnant with twins, I cannot wait to put this little bouncer to the test when our little ones arrive. I know that I will love it. I do already.

And while you're little one is happily bouncing away, you could be doing some much needed laundry, picking up or like many people now days, going to school. You could even look into interior design online schools or get that information technology online degree. Your baby will be happy while you take a few moments for yourself without worry.

If you would like to purchase this bouncer, you can do so at a Toys R Us near you or online for $54.99.

Parent's Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PBM Products. All opinions are 100% mine.

In the past 13 years, Wal-Mart's Parent's Choice Infant Formula has teamed up with parents to provide high quality nutrition to young children at amazingly low prices. If you haven't heard of Parent's Choice, Parent's Choice is an infant formula that is available exclusively at Wal-Mart locations nationwide and online at My nephews were formula fed and my brother and sister in law swear by Parent's Choice formula. A Couple of friends of ours, do as well. We are currently pregnant with twins and if it comes to the point of using formula, Parent's Choice is definitely the first one we are going to try. With so many close to us who have used it and loved it.. how could we not?

Parent's Choice is committed to helping parents give children the things they deserve. Parent's Choice is helping one student and one family accomplish yet another daunting task, starting a college savings plan. Parent's Choice is launching the Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes. The sweepstakes was created in partnership with PBM Products LLC, a Perrigo Company, and will provide one lucky winner with a 10,000 college scholarship in the form of a College Savings 529 plan. I'm not sure about you but this is one thing we are having a problem starting. We know how important a college savings account is and I wish it was easier for everyone to have one for each of their children. I am so glad that people like Parent's Choice are helping to make that easier for at least one family.

The Parent's Choice Infant Formula Sweepstakes officially launched on June 15, 2011 and will run through 11:59pm on August 1, 2011. You can find more information, rules, and the entry form at Parent’s Choice Infant Formula Savings Sweepstakes.
