Random Photos & Thoughts

Our new Dyson! You know you are truly an adult when you get excited about a new vacuum. 

Sunlight streaming into our living room this morning. Finally! 

 Starting to pack for our vacation. We decided to pay the extra $25 for a checked bag so we could pack enough snacks for the week. We are headed to Grand Cayman and things are VERY pricey there. Peanut butter & jelly sandwiches anyone?

Our neighbor has started to clean up his yard. The collapsed pool & liner from years ago was removed. I'm pretty excited about it and hope they keep up the momentum.

 The porch I painted last year. I guess exterior paint was not the right choice for the patio. We picked up two gallons of gray porch paint at Home Depot a few weeks ago. I will power wash the patio before re-painting. 

Packages! I have shipped about 100 items within the last few days. 

One of the pretty bruises I am now sporting from a fall down the stairs. No broken bones thankfully. 

I am trying to catch up to technology and failing miserably. I detest Windows 8. I have been using it for over a week and still cannot figure it out. All those boxes are driving me nuts. 

Melting snow! It has literally snowed every day for the last week. Thankfully the sun is out today and temperatures are supposed to hit 48 degrees. It is about time! The hubby & I plan to walk later today.

Nature Box - Special Promo Code

Nature Box Promo Code: EASTER BASKET which will allow you to get your first box for just $10 plus free shipping. 

It is no secret that my body cannot handle milk casein (the protein found in milk). I was finding it hard to buy healthy snacks at my rural grocery stores here in PA. What little I did find were fairly pricey and there was no guarantee I would like them. 

Then I found Nature Box. 

Nature Box is a monthly club where you pay for boxes of healthy snacks to be delivered straight to your home. 

Nature Box uses carefully sourced, nutritionist approved snacks. And shipping is always free. 

For 5 snacks (each usually has 4 servings), the cost is $20/month. You can customize your boxes if you have allergies or let them surprise you. I have done both and am always thrilled. 

For 10 snacks, the cost is $30/month. That works out to just $3 a snack - much cheaper than at my grocery store and it is delivered to me for free. 

This month I ordered the 10 snack deal and it came today. 

Nature Box sent me a free snack as well so I wound up with 11 snacks. I mostly hand picked these as I wanted to make sure none had milk products. 

 The snacks included: Southern BBQ Sunflower Kernels, Dark Chocolate Berry Trail Mix, Bombay Curried Cashews, Lemon Pucker Pistachios, Healthy Nut Medley and Organic Mighty Mix.

Each snack has the nutritional values on the back. 
I took some photos of the snacks I received last month (I wanted to be surprised so I let Nature Box choose the snacks for me). Some of them were half eaten when I took the photos. The bags are usually full :) And I just noticed that one of the photos is missing - I must have eaten a snack fairly quickly!

Blueberry Almond Bites

Whole Wheat Figgy Bars. They were surprisingly good!

All Natural Yogurt Pretzels

Sunshine Chips

Nature Box donates a meal for a hungry African child for every box they ship. 

So, if you want to try Nature Box here is a great deal:

Join Nature Box and get your first box for only $10 with the code EASTER BASKET.

By clicking on the link above, you will be taken to Nature Box under my referral code. For every friend I refer, I get a free month's snacks

To cancel Nature Box, it is a simple phone call. 

I was not paid in any way to provide information on Nature Box. It is truly something I enjoy and love their snacks.
