Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost Pet Food Giveaway

I did a lot of internet searching in the first couple of weeks we brought Duke home. I’d forgotten what it was like to have a puppy! What food to buy was my number one concern and I was overwhelmed with all the information out there. One fact that I read over and over was that when I introduced a new food I was to change it over slowly. Meaning the first week of the switch I only gave him 1/4 amount of new food mixed with 3/4 old food. I slowly let the puppy stomach adjust. I will admit that we had 1 or 2 days of soft stools as I was switching, but now we are at 100% new food and I feel as though he is happy and healthy and growing like a weed!

You remember last month when I introduced Nature’s Variety? Well, we (Hubby, Duke and I) like it so much that we continue to use the Instinct Raw Boost for Puppies in the Large Breed formula. The old food the previous owners gave us is history and this is the path we’ve chosen from now on. This variety brings you grain-free kibble plus freeze dried raw pieces together in the same bag – the perfect combination of convenience and nutrition to give your puppy the best health you can.

Key Benefits

  • Grain-free and gluten-free formula
  • High protein kibble with freeze-dried raw pieces
  • Probiotics for a healthy digestive system
  • Omega 3 and 6 for healthy skin and coat
  • Antioxidants for a healthy immune system
  • Natural DHA for eye and brain development
  • Ideal levels of calcium and phosphorus for developing bones and teeth

Instinct Raw Boost

I want to show you those freeze-dried raw pieces – I can tell he loves those best!

Duke is now 4.5 months old and he has not chewed up the whole house yet! I do have a nice list of items I’ve had to re-buy though – computer charger, sunglasses, googles, toys, cups, even clothes that he has ripped with his teeth.

Here are his new favorite toys from Chewy.com and you can tell exactly what he is thinking in this picture – yes you gave me new toys and I’m going to bring all three under the table to chew at the same time.

Those stuffed ones are really fun because they have crinkle sounds or squeaks. Yes just like baby toys!

Nature’s Variety Instinct Raw Boost can be found at Chewy.com

You can put it on monthly autoship and save 5%. This is great because I remember what it is like to try and lift those bags into your cart at the store – then the car – then home. Make it easy on yourself and your back! :)

Give Back with Hop ‘N’ Roll & $75 Gymboree Giveaway

I get asked weekly – Do we love Colorado? Most people who ask this don’t know that we came from the beach! But yes, we do love it here and do you know why? The beautiful scenery is a given, but the weather really is incredible. It gets us outside and playing more then we ever have!

It is mid-April and my kids are outside playing in shorts and tees. Now yes it may snow by the end of the week – ha! – but it will be melted by the next day and 60 or 70 again. It’s fantastic. Being at the top of the world is definitely an adventure!

Play is so important, don’t you agree? That is why Gymboree’s focus is helping kids learn and grow through the power of play. We want them in cute, comfy and affordable clothing and that is the exactly who Gymboree is! Their brand new Hop ‘N’ Roll  line is made of mix & match styles to keep up with the rhythm of play.

What is even more fabulous about the Hop ‘N’ Roll line is that Gymboree is partnering with KaBOOM! – a national non-profit organization that works to ensure that all kids have a childhood filled with active play, especially those in underserved communities. Their goal is to raise enough money to build a place to play for 10,000 deserving kids in 2015. A percentage of  proceeds from the sales of Hop ‘N’ Roll in-store and online will benefit KaBOOM!

Kiwi Crate is also stepping in and with a $5 donation you’re child will be shipped a Wind Crate to build with 100% proceeds going to KaBOOM! I just ordered mine!

All my boys are dressed in the Hop ‘N’ Roll line – cute Tees and Pull-On Shorts with elastic ties at the waist. Comfy and easy and affordable!

 

P’Diddy also wanted to make sure you saw his baseball socks we found (and his monster truck underwear to match his Tee, but I drew the line there. ;) My playful boys!

There’s Lemon Swirl, Dark Chocolate Almond with Coconut and Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Protein. Say Hello.

Last fall I introduced you to Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bars. I was back in my home state at the time so I was able to share with my extended family and not just hog them all myself. Let me tell you that these bars were a hit! They still mention them to me. Remember those bars? I say Yes you can get them at Target!

When you scour the shelves next time you are there, you’ll see these three new flavors. Lucky me has had a chance to try them all!

Above is my new fav – Dark  Chocolate Almond with Coconut – those are like my 3 favorite things!
