I have recently been given the opportunity to review The Snuggle Bear Boutique. The Snuggle Bear Boutique or SBB is an Etsy shop by a Stay at Home Mom who spends her days with her two little girls, Teagan and Avery. She has a strong passion for all things crafty and can make anything from onsies with monograms to crocheting.
We have been fortunate enough to get a chance to try out some of her works of art. The first item she made for Ace was a small security blanket. I had been wanting one for him and after seeing how awesome hers had turned out for daughter I asked her to make one for Ace. She made it to match his nursery with minky fabric in blue and green and ribbons around the edges. The second I gave it to Ace it was like the best thing he had every experienced. We got it when he was 6 months old and it was perfect for him. To this day he still uses it for nap times and when we are in the car.

When I was looking for something for Ace to wear for his baptism I mentioned to Alyssa what I wanted and she said she could come up with something. She was so great at really getting exactly what I envisioned. The color was perfect for a little boy and the monogramming is gorgeous. The jumper was so soft that he didn’t mind wearing it all day unlike his ones from Carter that were a bit more stiff. We have gotten multiple compliments on his outfit as well.
I also want to state I was not paid nor did I receive free items for this review. I am doing this because I truly do love her work.
I also wanted to post some of her other cute items! If you are interested in anything or have an idea of what you want Alyssa is very talented and may be able to make what you request just let her know. She is also offering my readers a coupon code!! It is PERFECT10.
Right now Cheerios are B1G1 free at Publix and if you print this coupon twice you an also save a $1! You are able to use two of this since you are still getting two boxes even though one is free. So you get two boxes for less then the price of one! Stock up for back to school.
I recently got an awesome opportunity to try a food delivery service called DeliverLean. I was excited to try this as I hate to cook and am always in a hurry in the morning and forget my meals for the day. It consisted of two days of meals that were delivered to my house Wednesday morning and the meals would be for that day and Thursday. I was so excited to see my cooler by my front door when I left for work at 7:30 AM.
If you know me then you know I usually always eat the same thing all the time. I don’t go way out of my comfort zone for everyday meals. When I opened the cooler to see what meals they had planned I was a bit nervous because the meals were very different from what I would normally eat.
The meal plan consisted of…
Breakfast: Roasted Vegetable Frittata, Ekekiel Sprouted Grain Bread & Jam
Lunch: Turkey Burger w/ Fresh Mozarella Cheese, Spinach & Roasted Tomatoes w. Balsamic Glaze
Dinner: Grilled Steak Chimichurri, Cinnamon Sweet Potato Wedges and Roasted Cauliflower
Breakfast: Sweet Potato Pecan Multigrain Pancakes w. Sugar Free Syrup
Lunch: Watermelon Feta Tabbouleh Rosemary Shrip
Dinner: Chicken Parmesan w. Penne and Strained Green Beans.
On Wednesday I really didn’t like the Frittata much at all. I hated the texture and just the overall taste. Thank goodness for the bread and jam. Lunch was great. I loved that they added mozzarella cheese, spinach and tomatoes to a turkey burger. I didn’t use the glaze because the burger was fine as is. I was surprised there wasn’t any type of side like veggies but it was surprisingly filling. The dinner was not something I would normally eat at all. I rarely eat red meat. It was great, though, and I was surprised it wasn’t dried out from having to nuke it in the microwave for a minute. The sweet potato wedges were delicious! I usually am not a fan of sweet potatoes since they are so sweet but they tasted awesome. The cauliflower also was good, I usually find it to be boring but they did a great job with adding some flavor to it.
Overall I would give this meal plan a B. If it weren’t for the Frittata I would have given it an A+!
Thursday started out MUCH better! The sweet potato pecan pancakes were incredible. I love nuts in everything so this really made my day. I also think they tasted like buttermilk pancakes which was nice. I would love to make some of these for my son minus the pecans.
I also loved that one of the meals was Chicken Parm. That is one of my favorite italian meals. It was a smaller portion then you would get at say, Olive Garden, so it was nice to not feel overly stuffed. I think that was my favorite meal of the day. The rest were great too and I enjoyed the variety DelverLean offered.

Some of the smaller touches I really enjoyed and maybe I am the only one who noticed, not sure but was that the cooler bag was made from recycled products. That to me is awesome. They also use containers that can be recycled and they state this when explaining the heating instructions. I love that they are taking even the smallest steps to help the environment.
I think that if you are looking for a delivery food service that has a variety of foods and helps you stay within your daily suggested caloric intake then this is the thing for you!
They offer 5 different meal plans. They include the Traditional Meal Plan, the Paleo Meal Plan, a Gluten Free Meal Plan, an Organic Meal Plan and for those on the HCG Diet there is a meal plan for you as well! You can also chose from 5,6 or 7 day Meal Plan. The options are endless!
Right now Deliver Lean is offering a great deal for my readers who sign up for a month of meals. With the coupon code: MBDL89 you get free shipping and 2 days of free food! If you have any questions about Deliver Lean please feel free to write Alli at email@example.com, she is very nice and super helpful!
