Do YOU like surprises?


 I have to be honest...I can usually do without surprises.  I am a planner, so I like to know EXACTLY what I am getting myself into ;)  My poor husband, every holiday he tries to surprise me and I usually end up harassing him so much he caves and the truth comes out :)

However...there are a few surprises that I definitely like.

After I had dated my now-husband for a few months I came to find out...he is a ridiculously good break dancer!  That is a very cool surprise :)

A few months ago when we were having a gender reveal party, I got the biggest surprise of my life when our little baby "girl" turned out to be our little baby BOY!!  That was a very cool surprise too!

This week I had another surprise that I  enjoyed...I mean...REALLY enjoyed!  Spending lots of time on my couch I have been trying to find simple, healthy snacks that are quick and easy (and that my kids can grab for me out of the pantry ;)  We are at two weeks of this bed rest thing now, and I can only eat so many apples and cheese sticks, you know?!



Green Giant surprised me BIG time with their Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips-Sea Salt!  I kid you not...these chips are YUMMY!  And if you know me, you know I don't mess around with my chips.  I mean, if you put some gourmet chocolate in front of me and a bag of chips...10 out of 10 I'm going with the chips ;)  



Not only were these Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips amazing, but I felt pretty good about eating them too.  They are made from with real sweet potatoes and have 14 grams of whole grain per serving.  PLUS...they have 40% less fat than regular potato chips.  And since I may or may not have eaten the ENTIRE bag in one sitting (don't judge), I was set for my whole grains for the day :)
So well done Green Giant!  I am so excited to have a new snack alternative that I not only feel good about eating but ENJOY eating too...here's to LOTS of happy surprises!!
