Bensimon Tennis Elastique sneakers on sale for $30!

If you like Bensimon tennis shoes as much as I do, here is great news for you:

The Tennis Elastique sneakers (shown above) are on sale for $30-35 (+free shipping) right now!

This has got to be the best deal on Besimons that I've ever seen.

(And I've been buying Bensimons for almost a decade now, since 2007!)

This is another slip-on pair I had and loved. This color is also available right now in above design, make sure to pick "beige," believe it or not. :^)

Grey and Beige are $30; Navy is $35.

That's all for today. I just had to tell the world about this great sale.

Happy shopping!

Delicious organic chicken nuggets with homemade look and taste

Every busy mom needs a reliable ready-made food item to just grab and go and in my years of experience with chicken-lovers, these are the best, healthiest option out there.

Bell & Evans is a true winner when it comes to breaded chicken products. They are made from all natural chicken and raised without antibiotics and are 100% whole breast meat pieces, with no extenders or fillers or preservatives.

Let's just say everyone I have served these chicken nuggets and tenders to had thought that these were totally homemade. Every. single. time. :-)

They go on these massive sales (otherwise they're 6.99-9.99 per pack) once in a while, so do wait for a sale to stock up!

(Yes, I can be a crazy lady taking pictures of a freezer section at a grocery.)

I usually just pop them in the toaster oven to serve with fruit (we like glazed mango pieces or apple slices) as the boys' afternoon snack or use them in salads.

They are totally, absolutely fool-proof and always always delightful. Two thumbs up, for sure!

Setting aside time to eat together

If you haven't been doing so already, start eating with your kids as many times a week as possible.

According to The Atlantic, a study conducted by the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University has found that "children who eat dinner with their parents five or more days a week have less trouble with drugs and alcohol, eat healthier, show better academic performance, and report being closer with their parents than children who eat dinner with their parents less often."

It doesn't have to be a super fancy or trendy meal each and every time. It is the quality time spent together during mealtime that matters most. According to Elizabeth David, the American culinary evangelist, enjoying basic meals with loved ones makes for the best eating, and the equation for physical and psychological well-being is easy: Eat simply and eat together.

Best hot cocoa ever

And by best I mean a healthier option that is not made of crazy artificially flavored/fake sugary, chocolatey stuff.

The Whole Foods' house brand products are not always spectacular but they certainly nailed this hot cocoa.

Thank you, Whole Foods!
