13 in 2013: Adding to My Skill Set & Another Giveaway

Happy Thursday!
I hope you are each having a great week!

I am combining my posts this week with the 9 days of healthy Giveaways.  You'll find that below!  Don't forget to enter Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3.

But before I move on, I thought I'd share with you another one of my goals for 2013!

I love to knit!  I have a shop that is primarily my knit creations. But I always wanted to learn how to crochet. I've tried many times but never have the stamina to keep it up. From what people tell me, its easier than knitting but for this knitter I am not finding that to be true.

So one my goals is to try and learn and not give up until I have it down! Even if it means torturing myself.

I've watched a few videos and feel like I am on a good path.  Hopefully you'll soon see some products of the process!

Got any good tips, patterns or tricks that i can learn on? I'd love to see them

Ok now onto the DAY 4 giveaway!

Welcome to DAY 4!

We have a really fun giveaway for you today! One that is toddler and mami approved! :) 

As you might know, if you're a regular at Big Apple Mami, our youngest, Lucas struggles with many food allergies. His allergies include soy, wheat, dairy, eggs and the lethal one - peanuts.

So, as you can imagine,finding food for him to eat when we're on the go is hard and we have to pack almost everything he eats just to be on the safe side.

When I discovered the fruit/veggie pouches that many of the major baby food companies have, I was thrilled. They are organic, he loves them and they are super easy and quick (not to mention a lifesaver in Target when he's grumpy and ready to go home!!)

But, the price not so great. The cheapest we've found them is for $1.50 per pouch which if you buy several, adds up quickly, and while they are organic, I still always prefer to make my own food (for everyone in the home) if I can. I began looking online to see if I could find a company that made reusable pouches but the ones I did find were super expensive and usually just had 1 or 2 in the package. Not convenient or worth the price.

Then, I stumbled upon the Little Green Pouch company. It was exactly what I was looking for, reasonably priced and they sent you 4 to a packet. Hooray!

When I reached out to them to see about reviewing some, they were more than happy to send me a packet for us to try out and generously offered to provide a packet to a lucky reader of the blog as well! 

They are really easy to use with little mess and quick cleanup! And on their site, they provide many yummy recipes if you need inspiration, or you could just pop in some homemade applesauce and you're good to go! 

I love that they are reusable, freezer and dishwasher safe and just as easy as the regular pouches to use! 
And what's even better?
Toddler approved! :)

Great, right? 
So happy we have these and so glad I can share this giveaway with you as well! 

And don't forget, giveaways for Day 1, Day 2 and Day 3 are still live! Don't forget to enter to win those amazing prizes as well! 

Good luck!
