Disclosure: I am a Proud #NSNation Blogger and I received Nutrisystem in
exchange for this review.  The opinions expressed above are 100% mine

Nutrisystem turbo SHAKE is a protein powder and can be used in so many ways.  I've used the protein powder to make mug cakes, pancakes and even a coffee mousse-like dessert.  Each serving packs a whopping 15 grams of protein.  One of my favorite ways to enjoy Nutrisystem turbo SHAKE is adding it smoothies.

We LOVE smoothies.  Smoothies are perfect for any time of day, breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as a filling snack.  Before Nutrisystem I had a pretty basic smoothie base:  non-fat yogurt, ice and fresh fruit.  Since being on Nutrisystem I've learned a few ways to make my smoothies even MORE healthy be simply adding Nutrisystem turbo SHAKE.  Smoothies are a great way to add a little variety to your Nutrisystem meal plan. 

Check out these quick and easy smoothie recipes.

Each recipe begins with 3 simple ingredients:
1 cup ice       
1 cup water       
1 Nutrisystem turbo SHAKE packet
What you add next is up to you. 

1.  Choco Banana Smoothie:  Add a banana

2.  Chocolate Mint Smoothie:  Add 1/4 teaspoon mint extract and top with a sprig of mint

3.  Choco Strawberry Smoothie:  Add a 1/2 cup of strawberries

4.  Choco Berry Smoothie:  Add a 1/2 cup of fresh or frozen berries i.e. blueberries, raspberries, goji berries 

5.  Choco PB Smoothie:  Add 1 teaspoon peanut butter see below

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massager…
