The Big Wedding - Win 2 tickets to a Tampa Showing - One day entry !!! Ends Midnight 4/22/13

I've been giving you glimpse's into the new movie coming to theaters on April 26th

 Lionsgate's THE BIG WEDDING, looks hilarious !!

The All-Star Cast promises laughs galore.

With an all-star cast led by Robert DeNiro, Katherine Heigl, Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried, Topher Grace, with Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams, THE BIG WEDDING is an uproarious romantic comedy about a charmingly modern family trying to survive a weekend wedding celebration that has the potential to become a full blown family fiasco. To the amusement of their adult children and friends, long divorced couple Don and Ellie Griffin (De Niro and Keaton) are once again forced to play the happy couple for the sake of their adopted son's wedding after his ultra conservative biological mother unexpectedly decides to fly halfway across the world to attend. With all of the wedding guests looking on, the Griffins are hilariously forced to confront their past, present and future - and hopefully avoid killing each other in the process. Screenplay by Justin Zackham. Directed by Justin Zackham.
You can get tickets to the movie with this super special offer BUY ONE GET ONE FREE
movies and weddings are always more fun with a plus one!
If you are in the Tampa Area and can make it to a showing April 24th at 7:30 pm at the AMC Veterans in Tampa, Leave me a comment.. Tell me your favorite Wedding Memory
You and one guest can see the Pre-Screening of The Big Wedding
I will choose 5 people to go to the movie !!!

Food Bloggers Against Hunger - You can help us today !

Did you know that millions of Americans are a part of the nation’s food stamp program. These individuals are limited to an average of $3 or $4 per person each day to supplement their food budget. Also, the government subsidizes products like soy beans, wheat, and corn instead of fresh produce.
Why do they make the affordable food often the unhealthiest?
According to the CDC, more than 37% of the adults in our nation are obese. Approximately 17% of our children (ages 2-19) are also obese.
If we allowed healthier foods, like fresh produce to those on the nation’s food stamp program, better options for snacks and sides for dinners could be provided to a multitude of families.

A great film call A Place At The Table is available in Theaters,
on iTunes, or through Amazon

I have gone shopping for My family. We purchased $86.00 worth of groceries for the week.
That's less than $20.00 a day for my family of 5.
Our dinners are relatively healthy and include a vegetable with each meal.

Breakfasts are simple and filling.
Lunches are kid friendly for the boys.
Hubby and I love re-purposing leftovers for lunch!

Our family regularly supports our local community food bank. We support them as well through out Cub Scout Pack. It's great to have the children involved and see the difference they can make in the lives of those in our community.

I don't have any personal Budget Friendly Recipes, but I did go searching for them.
Here is a site that had some great ideas on stretching $50.00 for a week for a family.
You can always tailor the recipes to fit your home
Also, this is a great site to go searching for more great recipes
You can help us Today !! On Monday, April 8th, this blog (Everyday Ramblings of My Life) will donate 1 food item to our local food bank  F.E.A.S.T., for each [Meaningful and subject appropriate] comment made below in the comments section.

Win Natural Handcrafted Soap! 6 winners - ends 4/15

Have you read about all the harmful ingredients in store-bought soap yet the thought of making your own is too intimidating? Would you like to wash with a gentle lather safe enough for a baby's skin? Then let me introduce you to Mae’s Handcrafted Natural Soaps. These natural soaps made with real tallow will delight your senses! Mae lovingly makes all her soaps in small batches to ensure the highest quality. She uses the best of the best ingredients: real tallow is gentle on your skin while at the same time is used for the bar's hardness, which means it doesn't get mushy in the shower. Olive oil is added for further gentleness along with a touch of coconut oil for a fluffy lather.

1 Month Update → #ShakleeBlogger Rocks

Well, It's been a month of trying to to the very best I can on the Shaklee 180 diet plan.
Some days were easier than others and there is always temptation!
My husband noticed a difference when he hugged me. My kids have stopped offering me candy, my friends have stopped asking to stop at fast food places when we are out..
They know what my temptations are and are helping me along. I love the support system!
