Nifty IPhone App

How many of you out there have heard of Mango Health? It's an app for iphones. I downloaded it sometime last year to help me keep up with when to take my daily medication. I'm sure you're wondering what this has to do with GG, so hang in there and I promise to get to that! I have a beta blocker that has to be taken twice a day for my heart. I was having a really hard time remembering it everyday so I went in search of something, anything really that could help me out that was designed strictly for medication. That's how I came across Mango Health. Once it alerts you and you take your medication you click a button that states: "I Took It". Every day that you take your meds correctly you get points for that day. 

As you earn points you get put into a drawing to win gift cards or you can even donate to a cause. A few weeks ago I hit level 7 and I got a message that tells me I won. I chose a $75 dollar gift card to target. That's right- $75 dollars and all I had to do was keep up with my medicine. Not only do I always take my meds with Mango Health, but I'm also earning points and with each new level I have another chance to win. I think it's pretty darn nifty.

Now, what pray tell did I buy with this gift card? Goodies for GG! I still have almost $10 on the card after buying him a pair of jean shorts and the three toys below:

Fisher-Price® Laugh and Learn Love to Play Puppy

Fisher-Price Deluxe Stroller Activity Center


I do have to admit that Scout and the stroller activity center are our favorites. Scout can plug into a smartphone and be customized. Not only does he say GG's name, but he also spells it and relates to favorite color, food and animal. The stroller activity center has been going everywhere with us. It fits on GG's rock 'n play sleeper as well as his car seat and he loves it!
