The following post is sponsored by Florida Prepaid. I received no monetary compensation and all thoughts are my own.
The Holiday season is quickly approaching, and maybe you're like me and wondering what in the world to get your kids that will be meaningful and last a LONG time.
I have a GREAT idea for you.
The GIFT OF EDUCATION.
As I told you all in October, we have the Florida Prepaid College Fund for the #TampaTrio.
My three are all smart kids, smart in their own unique ways. Maybe they will go to a traditional college, maybe they'll want to go to a technical college. Either way, giving the gift of education is something that I will give to my kids.
Remember.....if you sign up BEFORE December 31, 2014, the $50 fee will be WAIVED!! You can use that $50 for gifts for other family and friends!!
The Open Enrollment period beginning Oct. 15, 2014 and ending Feb. 28, 2015 is a historic one, marked by the lowest prices on Florida Prepaid College Plans since 2007 and a new 1-Year Florida University Plan costing as little as $43 a month for a newborn. The Florida Prepaid College Board was able to reduce prices on some of the most popular plans following a new state law that limits the future cost of tuition.
But you MUST sign up by February 28, 2015 to lock in prices for the year! There are options for EVERY family, so check out their website to figure out the plan that is best for your family!

As you probably know by now, I've returned to work full-time outside of the home.
I know I've mentioned it once or twice.
I know I've also mentioned how challenging it can be to try to get into a routine where I am making a healthy breakfast, and lunch for myself.
One thing that's been super easy for me while following the Atkins40 plan is SNACKS!!
Like most moms I get a slump around 3pm. I really try not to drink caffeine that late in the day because I need to be in bed by 9pm (I get up at 4:30... [More]
