Meijer Mounted Photo Review

As a BzzAgent, I received a coupon for a free mounted photo from Meijer. I brought in a picture on a thumb drive, uploaded it with ease, and it was mounted within an hour! I love the result (pictured below). The silver edging goes well with the photo and creates a sleek result that looks great hung on my white wall. The mounted photo also looks great sitting on top of a shelf. It's nice to not need to buy a frame and take away from the picture by surrounding it with something else. I like the idea of mounted photos, and Meijer did a great job!

Mara's Pasta Review and Giveaway!

Greetings! I was sent a wonderful gift box (pictured below) from Mara's Pasta to review on my blog. Mara's Pasta is made from a unique variety of 100% whole wheat (Maragrain™) that results in a better taste and texture. This pasta is higher in protein and fiber than other whole grain pastas. One other cool thing about Mara's Pasta is that it cooks faster than other whole grain pastas! I love that. You can see all of Mara's Pasta products and purchase them here.

10 of 10. I do believe this is the best wheat pasta I have ever had. It cooked very well and had a rich texture. It was firm and soft (if that makes sense) and wasn't gritty like some wheat pasta. The appearance is just beautiful too. I love farfalle.

Guess what?! One of you has a chance to win a Mara's Pasta gift box just like I received! Check out my giveaway below!
