Lifestyle expert Susie Coelho recently used some of her favorite Weight Watchers foods to prepare easy, delicious dishes for entertaining and produced a video with tips on sensible foods that don't derail guests' diet. You can watch the video by clicking here!
WeightWatchers offers many cheeses, yogurts, snack cakes, frozen novelties, and breads! I have had the pleasure of trying quite a few of their fabulous products.
I've tried the brownies and the chocolate cakes and they are both delicious!
The brownies are 2 points and are made with real chocolate! The Chocolate cake, which is one of my absolute favorite snack cake, is only 1 point each. These cakes are topped with creamy chocolate and have a great flavor of cocoa. Both of these are very satisfying snacks and will definetly take care of any sweet tooth you are having.
Next up are the Vanilla Round Ice Cream Sandwiches!
Now these are my favorite WeightWatcher product ever! They are only 140 calories and 2 points each and are much better than any Ice cream sandwich I've ever tried! They are a good size and very satisfying too!
The next frozen novelty I tried is the English Toffee cruch bars.
These are also 2 points and there are 12 in a box. They are made with toffee ice cream and chocolate flavored coating with toffee chips. I love these as well! I really like that there are 12 in a box.
I have also tried the Giant Fudge bars which are only 1 point and they are big! I am yet to try any of these products that I don't like. I recommend trying them all to see what you like best!
WeightWatchers also offers a snack widget which will help you with sensible food alternatives to help aid you in staying healthy! You can find this widget here.
They even have a facebook group too!
You do not have to be a member to use these tools!
Now for the fun part! WeightWatchers is offering 3 of my readers a chance to win a coupon good for any frozen novelty from WeightWatchers! Here's what they need you to do!

I have thoroughly enjoyed my long weekend and am pretty bummed to see it coming to an end! I loved sleeping in 3 days in a row. It was great! We really didn't do much. The kids had some cousins over to stay the night Saturday and today we did some yard work. Other than that, we've just sat around the house and been lazy!
Baseball season is coming to an end soon. Stratton has one more game tommorow and Trenton has one Friday and one the following Tuesday. I happy and sad, because I love, love, love to watch my boys play ball, but it requires a lot of running around and a lot of time! My aunt was at Trenton's T-ball game the other day and took a couple of pictures of my little man, so I'll leave you with one of those! I hope everyone has had a great weekend as well!
Oh yea, I almost forgot! Although I am from Arkansas and was happy for Kris Allen winning American Idol, I'm still bummed that Adam didn't win! Adam was my favorite from the beginning of auditions.
Look at that face!!

All 4 of my kids brought home Mother's day presents for me and I loved every one of them!
First, my baby girl Kadence, brought home a poem with her sweet little handprints! It's so precious!!
My 3 yr old daughter brought home the same thing with her handprints!
My kindergartener, Trenton brought me a little card with a poem and then a card that the Teacher had them fill out. It says this:
My mommy likes: To play on the computer
My mommy always: Plays on the computer
Do you think he's trying to tell me something?! LOL!
The last part said I love it when my mommy: Cooks for me!
So sweet and funny! I loved it too!
Finally, My 3rd grader and oldest, Stratton got to take money to the Senior Citizens place where they could buy gifts for Mom that the Senior Citizens have made. My son knows me so well! He constantly hears me saying I need clothes hangers for the tons of clothes we have between us all and he got me 7 coat hangers that were crafted up with yarn! I thought this was funny too, but very sweet! He also got me two cross bookmarks that are beautiful! He knows I like to read and I love crosses, so that was perfect! He said, "Those are for all those Twilight books you read mom!" LOl! He also gave me a butterfly magnet for the fridge and a little cross that is in a pocket with a poem about the cross! He did so good!! I am very proud!
I am so thankful to have 4 wonderful kids that call my Mom! I will cherish those little sweet gifts forever!! Those are the best gifts a Mom could ever receive for Mother's Day!!

Well, it's been thundering, lightning and raining for some time now and I got up this morning to take the kids to school and my mom called and my two big kids didn't have school! So, I dropped the girls off and went by my work with the boys and we didn't have electricity at work either. So, now I'm home with my boys.
It wouldn't have been my pick for a day off, but oh well! It happens! So, me and the boys are being lazy and watching movies all day. It's nice getting to spend time with them, without the little ones here for a change.
