#40bags40days - Update Week 4

Welcome to the #40bags40days Week 4 update!  I am happy to say that I was able to get back on track this week!  Tackling the basement has been a BIG project.  My laundry area is there, and the space surrounding it is where I end up putting things that don't have a place.  There were toys, books, outgrown clothes and supplies for my Norwex business.

"Warm Your Corn" with Popcorn, Indiana!

Popcorn is, and always has been, one of my favourite snacks.  All the buttery, salty goodness - so delicious!  Nothing like cuddling on the couch to watch a movie and snacking on some yummy popcorn.  I generally make my own, but when I was given the chance to try the Popcorn, Indiana Original Movie Theater Popcorn I decided to test it out.

Unlike traditional microwave popcorn, Popcorn, Indiana uses non-gmo corn, without additives or preservatives.  It is free from colourings and artificial flavours.


The Original Movie Theater Popcorn now comes in a new bag that is microwavable safe - which means that now you can have your popcorn served warm, straight from the bag!  All you do is cut a slit in the bag, place in the microwave for approximately 50 seconds and it's ready to snack on!

We were given a few different flavours to try, Original Movie Theater Popcorn, FIT Popcorn in Sea Salt Flavour, and the Drizzled Black & White Kettlecorn.


The FIT is a great option for those that are watching what they eat, with less than 40 calories per serving, and it still tastes great!

Smart Never Tasted So Good
  • 40 Calories or Less Per Cup
  • All Natural
  • Gluten FREE
  • Whole Grain
  • Zero Trans Fat
  • Sea Salt and Olive Oil flavors are
  • Non-GMO Project Verified
The Original Movie Theater Popcorn is the kids and my favourite, warmed up it was just like being at the movies!  I also really enjoyed the Drizzled Black & White - a handful was just enough to satisfy any sweet craving I was having!


Where To Buy:

 or you can order it on Amazon .ca or Amazon .com
(for a tasty treat delivered right to your door)

What is your favourite way to eat popcorn? Do you have a favourite flavour?

#40Bags40Days - Week 1


I started off the 40 Bags in 40 Days challenge in my kitchen.  The least daunting task seemed to be my pantry.  It was completely cluttered and not organized at all, and I knew there was some expired and/or stale food (from the kids not putting stuff away properly). I filled a small kitchen trash bag with stuff that could go.

Tales of Mommyhood Christmas 2014

This past Christmas wasn't really a GREAT Christmas.  Mr. J was sick with the flu.  It started Christmas Eve, and he spent pretty much all day on the couch with a fever, watching movies or watching his dad play video games.  Mr. K and I went to my moms for our annual Christmas Eve celebration (my aunts, uncles and cousins all gather at my moms place for dinner, drinks and family time).  We normally go over an hour early and exchange our gifts with my mom, and then the family comes.  Having young kids, we are headed home between 8 and 830 normally so that we can get everything set out for Santa and the kids to bed.

Mr. K helped me leave out Cookies and Milk for Santa this year
