“Smile While You Shake It” with Honey Bunches of Oats
Growing up, cereal was a treat at our house. You only got it on your birthday. Every February my box of Honey Bunches of Oats could be seen in mom's grocery cart in preparation for the big day — my birthday. My mom loved buying Honey Bunches of Oats because of its health and nutrition. I liked it because of the crunch and variety.
Now as a the buyer of my own cereal cravings, I can have cereal whenever I want. Lunch or dinner or even second breakfast which worked out perfectly when Mom It Forward partnered with Honey Bunches of Oats. The Bunch of Beats campaign is to celebrate starting your day off with a smile — "Smile While You Shake It". Getting up with a smile? Smiles are the best. And starting a busy day with a smile is far more desirable than one filled with grumpiness. I can feel a difference in the way I am when I wake with smile.
Gathering a few of our favorite social media savvy friends, we headed to our local antiques shop for a once in a lifetime opportunity — starring in our very own music video! And it was super simple and everyone was laughing as they showcased their best moves and watched their friend's moves.
