Yoplait Yogurt and Sam's Club | Review & Giveaway

If you're like me, then you're always trying to find good, healthy things to pack in your kid's lunches for school. Brayden is a picky school eater, and most of the time the teacher regretfully tells me how he only nibbled on the food. Thankfully we've figured out that he likes soy butter, which allows me to pack a PB&J sandwich to school without the nut allergen to worry about. But after a sandwich, I sometimes find myself scratching my head for side items. One of my "go to" items for the school lunch is most definitely the Yoplait GoGurts.

At home we actually eat yogurt out of a big tub, but I hate to send something super messy to school (God bless his teachers who have close to 10  two year old students... can you imagine?!). Yoplait GoGurts virtually eliminate the messy part, which is great for his teachers, and also help with the "I do it myself" mentality that is PREVALENT in my toddler. One of the things that I love about the Yoplait GoGurts is that they have no high fructose corn syrup. Since we're trying to eliminate that from our diet, it helps me rest easy knowing that while the ease of the yogurt is there, it's also in line with what we are trying to achieve with our diets. Another great thing I LOVE about Yoplait GoGurt is the fact that I can freeze it, and it will be dethawed and cold for Brayden by the time he eats lunch. PERFECT.


While we were perusing the dairy aisle at Sam's Club the other day (you know, our second home-- haha), I noticed they had bulk packages of Yoplait GoGurt available. I loved the box they came in... perfect for the fridge door (the top just pops right off, so you can stand it up straight in your fridge door). The only thing I wished that Sam's Club had was the Yoplait Simply GoGurts... I prefer those over the originals since the Yoplait Simply GoGurts have no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners AND no high fructose corn syrup. But for not having to run to the store every couple of days, I compromised for what was offered at Sam's Club. Sometimes convenience supersedes my preferences :)

Easy Canvas Prints.

If you read my personal blog, then you know that I am an avid hobbyist photographer. I LOVE photography. It provides a creative outlet for me, and it also provides a way to capture memories of my kiddos. Well, I have a confession to make. I don't have a single print hanging on my walls. Oh, I have frames on tables, that I change out maybe once a year. But that's it. Until now.

I was approached by Easy Canvas Prints to review their canvas products and I didn't hesitate in saying yes to the opportunity. Having my pictures on canvas has been a dream of mine, but I honestly just haven't taken the time to have it done. But that ends today. Look what I got in the mail!


I know, I know. Irresistible cuteness on canvas. Something for me to always remember their sweet smiles. It's one of my very fave pictures of them together, and now thanks to Easy Canvas Prints I am able to hang it on the wall FOREVER! And don't worry... I plan on framing it and not just leaving it on the table. It takes a while for things like that to get done on here, and I was just too excited to wait to share with you until it was in it's finished place at my house :) I'll be sure to update once I get it framed and in it's final home in my home.

I was very impressed with the customer service I received at Easy Canvas Prints, and their order process is seamless. In fact, I was so impressed with their service, process and product, that I actually ordered a canvas for a recent photo shoot I had for a friend's newborn baby boy. Their prices are very competitive, probably some of the best I've seen, and they run great sales; like the one right now which includes free shipping and 25% off! All in all, I'd say that if I had to recommend a place to get your pictures on canvas, Easy Canvas Prints definitely wins my vote!

I was given a free 8x10 canvas in exchange for this review. I was in no other way compensated and all opinions expressed here are my own. To view my full disclosure policy click HERE.
