Valentines Day is coming up in just a few weeks and as the Head Room parent of my 1st grader and 4th graders classrooms, I like to find treats that I think their classmates will love. I am the "over-achiever" who always wants to go above and beyond for my children but at the same time, I think it's important to balance nutrition and health in there as well. Introducing Angie's Kettle Corn! When this awesome bag of yumminess showed up on my doorstep, I was super excited because we are big fans of popcorn........and after I took one bite, I was hooked. I wasn't so sure about the kids because they had never had kettle corn but judging how fast the bag disappeared, I would say it was definitely a hit at our house!
What we received was the Angie's Kettle Corn Valentine Pack which is available at Target Stores right now for $5.99!! The package comes with 20 individual bags as well as some super cute valentine stickers so you can give the gift of this salty, sweet treat!!!! The stickers were super funny too, like the one you see to your right that says "My <3 Pops 4 U." How cute is that?! But the real treat is inside of the bag. My kids started out by filling out about 10 of the stickers to gift to their teachers but as the bag with the rest of the kettle corn dwindled, I noticed the teachers pile getting smaller and smaller until it was all gone! HA! The kids love taking Angie's Kettle Corn to school for snack-time and even in their lunchboxes for a lunchtime treat! Rarely do I find a snack that all 4 children enjoy but Angie's Kettle Corn has definitely stolen their hearts!!!! I don't mind either because each pack is only 70 calories AND this awesome stuff is cholesterol free, certified gluten free, contains no trans fat AND it contains whole grain. What more could a Mom ask for?! (Oh yea, MORE Angie's Kettle Corn!)
They definitely hit one out of the park with this stuff. It's a perfect balance of salty and sweet that our entire family adores. Now the only problem is, what are we going to do when it's all gone?!?!?!?!
One lucky winner is going to win their own Angie's Kettle Corn prize pack!

If you wear glasses than you probably understand the frustration that comes along with having less than perfect eyesight. I have had glasses since I was pretty young and my oldest son had to get glasses when he was in kindergarten!!! If you are in the marekt for eyeglasses, you must check out the Educational Tools from Zeiss!!! These tips were created to enable those who wear eyeglasses to better understand their vision correction needs, ensure they egt the most of out of their next eye exam and receive the best lenses to regain sharp vision!
One of my favorite parts about the Educational Tools was the page regarding "Facts to Know about Vision and Lenses. I copied some of the information and posted it below so you can get an idea of what kind of useful information you can find on the Zeiss site!
Know The Three Os:
An Optometrist performs eye examinations and writes prescriptions for corrective lenses. Most Optometrists can diagnose and treat many medical eye conditions and prescribe certain medications.
An Ophthalmologist is a medical doctor treating the full range of eye diseases and conditions. Ophthalmologists perform surgery for cataracts and other eye conditions.
An Optician fills the prescription from the optometrist or ophthalmologist and specializes in fitting eyeglasses and providing lenses to correct vision problems.
Based on your vision test, an eye care professional will prescribe the optimum lenses to help you regain sharp vision.
Children should have eye exams:
At ages six months, three years and when beginning school.
Every 2 years (even with no vision issues) to check for early signs of eye disease.
Adults should have eye exams:
Every two years, even with no vision issues.
Annually starting at age 40 as your eyes start to experience natural age-related vision changes.
When selecting eyeglasses for your vision correction, you will also be choosing your eyeglass frames, the type of lens and lens coating. Be sure to let your eye care professional know about the activities you participate in when wearing glasses.
Not all lenses are created equal. Zeiss Individual® is the first progressive lens to integrate how your frames, face and prescription work together for a one-of-a-kind lens that is precisely personalized for the wearer. ZEISS technology is used to create these customized progressive lenses, which are clinically proven to be preferred by consumers over conventional progressive lenses to improve their vision and quality of eyesight.
Ask your eye care professional about the lenses he/she has recommended for you, and how the lenses meet your vision needs.
Know your coating options:
Anti-reflective: Reduces reflections to a minimum for crisper, clearer vision in all lighting situations.
Anti-scratch: Provides optimum protection against scratches which can interfere with vision.
Anti-static: Repels dust and dirt so lenses stay cleaner longer.
Hydrophobic: Dirt and moisture slide off the surface, so the lens is quicker and easier to clean.
PureCoat® by ZEISS: This high-tech coating offers all-round protection including hard anti-scratch coating, anti-reflective coating, and the anti-static function all in one.
UV coating: Some lens materials block 100% of harmful UV rays. Those that don’t require a coating or treatment that offers full UV protection.
Additional options include:
Self-tinting lenses: Tint reacts to changing light, darkening in the sun and clearing indoors. Self-tinting lenses like PhotoFusion® by ZEISS also offer full UV protection.
Polarized lenses: Sun lenses that filter out almost all glare created by sunlight reflected off of water, snow and other surfaces.
The right lenses and coating options for you depend on your lifestyle, work and leisure activities.
Care for your lenses. Don't leave your eyeglasses in the sun or near a heat source as this can damage the
coating and frames. Keep your eyeglasses in a protective case when not in use.

This post brought to you by Walgreens. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you are a customer of Walgreens and you use Express Scripts then you are already aware of failed negotiations between the two companies over the past year. After nearly a year of unsuccessful negotiations, the contract between the 2 expired and as of January 1, 2012, Walgreens is no longer a part of Express Scripts' pharmacy provider network. This includes all Walgreens pharmacies nationwide as well as the Duane Reade pharmacies in the New York City area. Obviously this is an inconvenience to the many customers who now have to drive farther away to get their medications at different pharmacies. We have used the same pharmacy for as long as I can remember because it's close and because they already have all of our information. Changing would be a pain so I can definitely see why customers are peeved! It's a shame that Walgreens and Express Script were not able to come to some agreement. Express Scripts is not doing their customers any favors by eliminating Walgreens from their plan and if anything, it is costing their customers more money and hassle which I just don't understand.
Among the steps that Walgreens is taking to limit the burden on its customers, they are offering perks through the Walgreens Prescription Savings Club. Through the club, an individual can join during a special promotion this month for $5, or $10 for a family membership. Members can receive savings on more than 8,000 brand name and generic medications and more than 400 generics are available with a three-month supply for less than $1/week. An individual can purchase an annual membership for just $20 or $35 for the entire family. Other benefits include discounts on flu shots, pet prescriptions, nebulizers and diabetic supplies. You can also receive bonuses when you purchase Walgreens brand products and photofinishing services.
