New Host with Kelly Ripa!!

"On September 4, I'll be joined by my new co-host," Kelly Ripa  revealed in a video posted onLive! With Kelly's Facebook page Monday.

In this Jan. 24, 2012 photo, Kelly Ripa tapes an episode of "Live! with Kelly," in New York. The producers of “Live! With Kelly” say a new co-host will be revealed on the show Sept. 4. Ripa that morning will officially announce her new partner as he or she joins her on stage. By then, Ripa will have welcomed 59 guest co-hosts since Regis Philbin retired from the show last November, Disney-ABC Domestic Television said Monday, Aug. 20, 2012. The chosen one will come for that large pack, the company said. (AP Photo/Charles Sykes)

Are you a fan? Have you watched all 59 gust host?!?!?  I have and LOVE  the how new guest host ideal--but I guess its time to settle down. 
a few of my favorites  are:
Ripa's husband-Mark Consuelos
NFL star -Michael Strahan
Singer- Nick Lachey
and Jerry O'Connell

and  I can dream, but I don't see them leaving their  shows- Neil Patrick Harris or Anderson Cooper

ABC producers' lips are sealed until Sept. 4--  Did you have a favorite???

Lewiston Art Festival in Western NY

This weekend there was a local art festival and they has some great  chalk artist from local high schools. The Lewiston Art Festival- Lewiston’s signature event features work by more than 175 exceptional artists and fine crafters. Located just five miles north of Niagara Falls, the charming streets of picturesque Lewiston have long attracted visitors to our unique shops, restaurants and parks.

 There was a great area set up for kids to make a craft from recycled materials from computer,camera and other son found this very fun!!!

some of the final chalk art piece.

While I got to the show mainly for inspiration--being a lil artsy myself sometimes I find something I cannot make myself this time it was a nice fired pottery piece... made by Stacie Johnson-Leske

She has wonderful unique pieces and they can be custom ordered to fit your home.

If you are ever planning a August trip to the Buffalo/Niagara Falls area  Bring the whole family for a weekend of art, music, food, street performers, workshops, demonstrations. The event is the perfect way to celebrate your summer weekend. Center Street becomes pedestrian only for this two day festival.

Yummy new Snack

As a MyInsite member I'm able to try out some new items from general mills. The latest was  Mott's Medleys Fruit Flavored Snacks. I liked these because they are made with  real fruit and  vegetable juice with the fruit flavors kids love. Because my kids can be extra fussy if they see something like carrot juice and will not try --I only gave them the single packs and held on to the box until they were asking for more- they were surprised  at what was in such a yummy treat! Here's the nutritional info according to the Mott's website

Serving Size: 1 pouch = 23g
Total Fat0g0%
Total Carb19mg6%

  • Vitamin C 100%

The snack received TWO HUGE THUMBS up from all who tried. I think they make a super treat for in between meals.

Thanks to  General Mills who  provided me with the information through MyInsite
