I could not believe it when one day the wonderful folks at General Mills® contacted me and invited me to this event! Immediately I weighed my options: A) Free travel and lodging in Miami in addition to attend a fantastic and star studded event in the company of the best and the brightest Latina Bloggers, or B) Stay home with my wonderful girls and do homework and laundry?
... Travel or laundry? Sunny Miami or windy New York? Fiesta or lavado? Well, I did what any responsible and mature mother would do. I picked the Qué Rica Vida launch. It is, after all, for a great cause - the health and well being of my family! Where else can I find a quick, easy and healthy recipe for tonight's dinner while reading up on the latest from Box Tops for Education®, my twins' very favorite PTSA activity?! A General Mills® box doesn't last five minutes in this house without a hole being cut into it.
And what better place to find coupons for so many of the healthful foods I give my family each day? Open my pantry door right now and you'll find a veritable storehouse of Cheerios®, Progresso® soups, and - yes I admit it - Fiber One® snacks. TMI? I think not. And there, in the middle shelf of my refrigerator, is my oldest daughter's supply of Yoplait® yogurts. Once upon a time the Yoplait® Whips! were mine, but she discovered the light and fluffy goodness and it was all over after that.
So, join me as I count down the days, hours and minutes until my trip to Miami. I'll share the event with you as I live it.
Disclosure: I will be attending the Qué Rica Vida courtesy of General Mills®. Airfare, accomodations and dinner are provided by them, and I couldn't be more grateful!
