Boiron USA is one of the world leaders in homeopathic remedies.  Boiron manufactures Oscillococcinum, a homeopathic cold and flu remedy and winner of the 2007, 2008 and 2009 Vity Awards Homeopathic Remedies Category.  Boiron recently introduced Optique 1 Single Dose Eye Drops to its product line.  Like other commercial eye drops, Optique 1 Eye Drops provide temporary relief of minor eye irritation due to fatigue, allergies and helps soothe dry, itchy, burning or tired eyes.  However, what makes Optique 1 Eye Drops different is that it comes in single dose tubes therefore making it a more sterile choice and unlike some other eye drops Optique 1 Eye Drops are safe for use for children and the elderly.

Three Boys and an Old Lady received the 20 dose package of Optique 1 Eye Drops. I tried them and found them comparable to similar eye drops we’ve used.  Yet, the realization of just how convenient they are came as hubby had returned from a fishing trip and couldn’t find his eye drops.  I offered to let him use mine.  Of course he declined thinking I would give him our regular eye drop.  You should have seen the look on his face when I handed him a tube of the Optique 1 Eye Drops.  How convenient, huh?  Now when someone suffers from eye irritation you can simply hand them a tube of Optique 1 Eye Drops rather than cringe at the thought of contamination caused by sharing your eye drops. 

I love the convenience of the Optique 1 Eye Drops, they’re small enough to keep in my wallet and each pre-measured dose delivers.  I also love the fact that Optique 1 Eye Drops are preservative free, and don’t contain vasoconstrictors  like some other over-the-counter eye drops and are therefore safe for everyone in my family.  

Optique 1 Eye Drops is there is a lot of fluid in those single dose tubes and I felt like I was wasting precious eye drop solution.  However, hubby thought the tubes were perfect and knowing the tubes are recyclable more than makes up for this. 




Buy it: Optique 1 Eye Drops are available at many online retailers and available for mail order.  For a complete listing of retailers, visit Boiron USA.  Avg. retail price around $10 for a 20-dose package. 

Win it:  one lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady follower will win a 20 dose package of Optique 1 Eye Drops.

Giveaway is open to U.S. residents and ends at 11:59 PM on 9/6/10.  Winner will be chosen via Random.org and will be notified via email.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim prize or prize will be forfeited and new winner will be selected via Random.org.

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mission Foods. All opinions are 100% mine.

It’s that time of the year again! The kiddies are headed back to school and time to start planning those healthy back to school lunches. Thankfully Mission Flour Tortillas are a staple in our house. We use them to make taco roll-ups (aka burritos) and my kids of notorious for making fab PB & J wraps. Mission Flour Tortillas are great for Mission – Back To School.
Besides being economical, Mission Flour Tortillas are low in fat, versatile, available in a variety of sizes and flavors, they’re portable and Los Tres Amigos love ’em. 
Looking for an easy recipe, check out the Mission Menus website. You can find some out of the ordinary recipes and create your own interactive cookbook…for FREE.   I even found a delicious recipe for Chicken Club Wraps pictured below.  YUMMY!
We love the flavored Mission Flour Tortilla varieties especially the Spinach Herb and Sundried Tomato Basil Wraps and make some fab deli wraps with them.
For a simple lunch:  
Lay a tortilla flat and spread a thin layer of fat free cream cheese.  Top with lettuce, your fave deli meat, slice tomatoes, pickles and onions.  Grab one corner and roll it slowly.  Cut in half and voila LUNCH!

Check out the Mission Menus website and let me know what recipe you’d like to try.

I have been a longtime fan of Baby Einstein products and was glad to see they have created a series of iPhone and iPad users.

my baby einstein offers video, flashcards, music and  a create your own feature.  

I liked the Video assortment and the video runtime is about three minutes or so, long enough to keep little ones entertained.  There are three video clips and additional videos may be purchased for $.99 each.  I didn’t purchase any additional videos but thought there was a nice assortment of videos to choose from.

The Discovery Cards were by far my favorite feature.  You can create your very own flashcards for your little one using pictures stored on your phone.  For example, you can create a flashcard using pictures of grandparents and their voice so your little one sees and hears them. 

Music is the how I was introduced to Baby Einstein and I was very excited thinking this app would have tons of Baby Einstein music.  However, I was a bit disappointed as the songs weren’t provided in their entirety.  Instead the app only gives you snippets of the songs, which is what Baby Einstein is known for.  

Create Your Own is another fab feature of the my baby einstein app.  This feature creates a digital book for your little one.  You can design a background, add pictures, text and Baby Einstein characters.  

Buy It:  The My Baby Einstein app is available for download from your iTunes shop for $3.99 and additional videos, clips, etc. are available for $.99 each.

Win It:  One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady follower will win a $5 iTunes card you can use to purchase the my baby einstein app.
Giveaway is open to residents of U.S. and Canada and ends at 11:59 PM on 8/30.  Winner will be chosen via  Random.org and will be notified via email.  Winner will have 48 hours to claim prize or prize will be forfeited and new winner will be selected via Random.org.  
Mandatory Entry:  You must be a public follower of Three Boys and an Old Lady [click Follow on the right of this screen] AND you must leave a comment with which of the four features you think your little one would like most.

Disclosure:  I received free copy of this app for review purposes.

I like to this of Yoplait Greek Yogurt as “yogurt for grown-ups”. Greek yogurt has a thicker texture and lighter flavor than the yogurt we typically serve our kids. In other words you won’t find any fruity, candy flavors here. Currently, Yoplait Greek Yogurt is available in four flavors: Plain, Honey Vanilla, Strawberry and Blueberry. I was sent the Honey Vanilla and Strawberry flavors and enjoyed them both.
There are so many health benefits to yogurt and Greek yogurt is no exception. It’s high in calcium, low in calories, low in carbs and higher in protein than most other commercial yogurts and is great to use in everyday cooking.
Yogurt isn’t just for smoothies anymore. You can find a ton of recipes on the Yoplait Greek website. Some of my favorites include Fresh Apple Streusel Pecan Cake and Creamy Turkey Stroganoff.
How would you love to try Yoplait Greek Yogurt for yourself? Yoplait has graciously provided 2 coupons to give away to one lucky follower.
