Boudreaux's Butt Paste, Funny Name - Fantastic Product

This post brought to you by Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

The first time I heard of Boudreaux's Butt Paste I had to giggle.  I didn't know exactly what it was, but I figured (and hoped!) it was a diaper rash cream for babies.  I was relieved to find out I was right. All kidding aside, I know several moms who swear by this cream and won't use any other kind.  My sister-in-law has a new baby girl, and she uses this cream on her severe diaper rash.  She tried many brands but nothing cleared it up until she found out about Boudreaux's Butt Paste.  She was happy to find out that it was developed by a pharmacist with help from a pediatrician, so she knew it would be safe and effective.

There are two convenient forms of Boudreaux's Butt Paste, flip top tubes from 1 ounce to 4 ounces, and a nice big 16 ounce jar.  My sister-in-law likes that it goes on smoothly and wipes off easily.  She says other brands are hard to clean off and it ends up irritating baby's skin more trying to scrub it off!  This cream makes moms happy because it's gentle on baby. 

Boudreaux's Butt Paste was featured on the Oprah Show, the Tonight Show, the Today Show, People Magazine, ESPN and While You Were Out on TLC.  If you would like to try a sample for Free, just go to Boudreaux's Butt Paste for more information.

A Nail Biting Super Bowl Game!

I was biting my nails as I watched the Super Bowl game last night! My husband, myself and my in-laws were all rooting for the Green Bay Packers & they sure gave us a show last night! They were in the lead to start out the game, then the Steelers almost caught up. We sat on the edge of the couch as we watched the last quarter to see who would win. Green Bay still had the lead but it wasn't enough. There were some plays that didn't go so well and some that were absolutely amazing! In the end, the Packers brought it home and we could finally relax and take a breath. Aaron Rodgers did a fantastic job leading the Pack, I have more respect for him after watching the game last night! I really enjoyed watching Clay Matthews make some great plays too.

As for the National Anthem, I know it is all over the news already. I'm no Christina Aguilera fan, so I didn't enjoy it even before she messed up the words. And halftime was a waste of time if you ask me. The Black Eyed Peas sounded terrible especially Fergie. There were a few moments she sounded ok, but she was off pitch most of the time and was screaming instead of singing. The dancing was pretty cool and I loved seeing Slash, formerly of Guns N Roses.

The game was exciting and thrilling, everything a Super Bowl Game should be!

NMEDA: for Safe Driving & Equipment for Disabled People

This post brought to you by NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.

I want to tell you about an association that helps disabled people to find vehicles and driving equipment.  My mom was disabled by a condition called Multiple Sclerosis (MS) and couldn't drive, so she had to call for a bus to take her shopping and to appointments.  I wish I had known about NMEDA then, so she could have driven herself instead. If you know someone with a disability, the NMEDA association could help.

NMEDA is a non-profit trade association, educating people on where to go to find safe driving & equipment for disabled people.  They don't sell anything, they just tell people where to find the equipment they need.  They promote safe driving and equipment for those with all kinds of disabilities, their members have to stick with the standards set by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.  NMEDA dealers are members who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications to help disabled people.

Since people with disabilities differ, even those with the same disability may have different issues, you have to be careful to find the right adapted vehicles. With NMEDA you receive a personalized "in-person" evaluation to find the right driving solution.  They will be there for you to help with refinements and additional information if you need it too.

NMEDA also has the Quality Assurance Program (QAP) that is nationally recognized and accredited for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry.  Since they want to satisfy their customers, they have this system that is a documented approach to quality. 

NMEDA is a great way to get a disabled person back on the road and have some independence.  If I would have known about them years ago, it would have been a big help with my mom's independence and mobility.

For more information, head over to the website for NMEDA.  You can also hit the dealers locator and type in your zip code to find the nearest dealer to you.  Please comment here and let me know where your closest dealer is!

TABASCO Original Red Sauce is Great for Many Recipes

This post brought to you by TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love to use TABASCO® Original Red sauce, TABASCO® Original Red in many recipes.  I keep it on hand in my pantry at all times.  One of my favorite recipes to use TABASCO® Original Red sauce in is macaroni salad.  It's not really a recipe, it's just in my head what I like to use in it and how much.  Basically, I boil the macaroni noodles, then add mayonnaise, several shakes of TABASCO® Original Red sauce, shredded carrots, boiled eggs, frozen peas and salt & pepper.  This "recipe" also works great for potato salad, just use potatoes instead of macaroni.  The possibilities are endless, my husband uses Original Red on his eggs every time we eat scrambled eggs; my daughter loves it in her macaroni and cheese.


TABASCO® Original Red sauce,  is so much more than just "hot", it adds flavor and brings out the flavor in the foods it is added to!  I don't like hot or spicy things but I love some TABASCO® Original Red  in my recipes because of the flavor it lends to the dish.  Recently I heard about using TABASCO® Original Red on pizza, and though I haven't thought of it before, it does sound really tasty!  Maybe I will try it on Super Bowl Sunday for a fun treat.  For game day party menus, go to their Menu Planning Page where you can find recipes to make pizza, wings, chili, dips and more.  And for pizza ideas, check out the Pizza Perfected page.  I hope you have a great Super Bowl Sunday and find some helpful recipes to make it a very memorable day of snacking!
