I thought I had seen "Spencer" on something else. I just recently really started to watch iCarly with the kids and actually really like that show, LOL "Sam" is my favorite ;o) The kids were amazed last night that their mom was "cool enough" to follow Miranda Cosgrove (Carly) on Twitter (@mirandabuzz). Really? I wanted to see as a parent what she tweeted about- to see if she truly is a suitable role model for my kids. (not much boy talk, etc ...) Jackson had a look of shock on his face when I told him even Miranda has a lot of math - 5 hours worth! The show is just darling and miles away from the HM show, I'm so glad there's an alternative such as iCarly!
Who is Hungry Girl? I gasp at the thought of someone not knowing! She's Lisa from the above video, and you can view her website here. She's on a quest to keep comanies accountable for the calorie, fat and fiber content of their foods by testing products out and including reviews in her daily emails. Each day, the newsletter emails have a different theme to them so it's not the same repetitive thing all the time. She also comes up with recipe swaps to make fattier foods more healthy, such as butternut squash fries vs potato fries, Starbucks food and drink swaps cutting the calories in half, and the like. Sign up for the newsletter and try it out! Jay just bought me her new book 200 Under 200: recipes under 200 calories. I'm not finished reading it yet but it's nothing less than awesome, which is what I've come to expect from Hungry Girl :O) The kids are definately going to enjoy these recipes, that I do not doubt.
Speaking of kids, how about a little "contest"?
