Posterjack’s 31 Day Photo Challenge #JulySnapshots

We are a very artistic family and love taking photographs. We try to go at least once a month to a park or beach and photograph nature (while Mom and Dad try to take photographs of our little ones!). We have decorated walls with our photographs!
Posterjack is an online Canadian company who offer the largest variety of photo art products in Canada. They even offer prints in acrylic and metal! Talk about literally turning your photographs into works of art!
Posterjack is currently running a photograph challenge for the month of July. Each day has a different theme and participants are encouraged to share their photos either on Facebook or Twitter tagging the photos with #JulySnapshots.
The prize? Posterjack is giving away a daily prize of $25 to their site!
Here is my photo for today’s theme of “fresh” – I am using “fresh” food for today!
Have you been participating? What would you chose for today’s theme?

Our Neighbourhood Deer #WW

Had to share this story that goes along with this picture (I know it’s supposed to be wordless!). We have deer that travel through our neighbourhood all the time. This one particular day we were sitting on the porch when they came by while two girls were playing soccer. This one deer was so interested in what they were doing it actually chased after the two girls! They were perfectly fine – laughing after the deer disappeared but it gave us all quite a shock!

Coffee Delight with International Delight Iced Coffee #review

I was recently given the opportunity to review International Delight Iced Coffee through BzzAgent. I was sitting on the fence with this BzzCampaign as every time I had purchased an iced coffee in store I found it to be too creamy, too strong and overall not very good (let alone the price?!).
International Delight Iced Coffee comes in three flavours: Mocha, Vanilla and Caramel Macchiato. The first flavour I tried was Mocha and I was in love. It has a smooth, chocolaty taste – my weakness is chocolate! This was definitely my favourite flavour. I would also add a bit of it into my morning coffee in replacement of milk and it gave it a rich and creamy taste. There is 150 calories in each cup of Mocha Iced Coffee with 29gm of carbohydrates. One carton cost me roughly $3.99 at Metro (on sale – the most expensive ran about $4.49 at Walmart). I was able to get roughly seven to eight glasses out of each carton – I was also adding them to my coffee in the morning!

Vanilla was my second favourite flavour. It tasted almost like a French Vanilla from Tim Hortons. The Vanilla flavour contains 160 calories in each cup and 31gm of carbohydrates. When added into my morning coffee it definitely tasted like a French Vanilla from a coffee shop! 
My least favourite would have to be the Caramel Macchiato. I am not sure what it was about this flavour but I did not like it – maybe I am just not a caramel person. The taste was quite strong and not as smooth as the other two flavours. Each cup contains 150 calories and 29gm of carbohydrates.

I loved the fact that I had a ready to use carton at all times in my fridge to enjoy when I got home from work (no need to stop anywhere on my way home and fight the long lines). It was perfect on top of ice or even just as is. It was an incredibly refreshing drink to have on a hot day. I also loved having a hint of it in my morning coffee in replacement of milk. With a carton ranging from $3.99 to $4.49, you can save a lot of money purchasing the carton versus a daily drink at a coffee shop (not to mention the hassle of driving there, line ups, etc..). You can find International Delight Iced Coffee easily at Walmart, Sobeys, Metro and Fortinos in Canada. 
You can follow them on Facebook and Twitter to keep up to date with all the latest offers and promotions (they had a pretty fantastic offer back a month ago on their Facebook page giving away a free International Delight tumbler!).
Have you tried the new iced coffee flavours? What are your thoughts on it – yay or nay?
