Happy Halloween

October 31, 2008 By · No Comments

I thought for today I’d show you each child in their costume. So here is the first one, this is Little A in his Knight outfit. Something tells me the hat, isn’t staying on. I’d love to see your children’s costumes? Share your link in the comments. (only those doing halloween costumes please)
Sorry it is sideways, I can’t flip it.

For this next one, it’s BabyGirl in her Tinkerbell and yes I realize the wings are upside down and her hair is going to be curled too.

I’ll update with the other two once they get home. Today they got to wear costumes to school, but only IF they: Did NOT wear: colored hair, sprays in hair, hats, swords, weapons, scary items, etc. Ummm, they didn’t dress up.

To my dear readers:

Very sorry about the invisible talking guy, I am looking into it but have no clue where he is. Any help would be great. I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s had this happen to now, or at least hope not.

Bloggy Giveaways: Baskets of Indulgence

October 30, 2008 By · No Comments

For my next Bloggy Givaway you are just going to want to indulge in it. Everyone likes a healthy snack, even if you have to indulge a bit. But what’s a woman’s favorite thing to indulge in? Chocolates and a spa treatment of course, now not every woman can afford the luxuries of a real spa, however with this special giveaway she can treat herself nice right at home. Not to mention it is free to THREE lucky readers.

I got one of these, “Baskets of Indulgences” and I must say I gobbled up all those Turtle Chex Mix bars, well all but three. Yes, see I saved them for the other kids but I couldn’t help it I ate two and shared one with BabyGirl. These Turtle Chex Mix Bars have a light salty taste with a sweetness from the chocolate and caramel in it. Very good and perfect.

The Chocolate lotion smells “good enough to eat” but don’t, it isn’t recommended. This applies on thin, but comes out quickly. My daughter, BalletGirl, has worn this a few times to school.

Winner gets the following:
- Turtle Chex Mix Bars
- chocolate candles
- caramel lotion
- spa loofah
- hand massager
- nail brush
- spa towel
- basket for it all (wicker)

Why would you not want to sign up?

RULES: Head on over to Chex Mix and tell me your favorite Chex product and/or a recipe that uses it. As for myself I just LOVE these bars but normally I eat the Rice Chex cereal with a tad of sugar, I also like Honey Nut mix. Comment below and remember to leave an email by Election Day, this drawing is the day after the elections. Good luck!

Bloggy Giveaway: Lands’ End Lunchbox

October 30, 2008 By · No Comments

We got to review the cutest little lunchbox recently from Lands’ End, BabyGirl loved it so much she has had her lunch in it every day…unless of course I make her clam chowder. Days she is without it it is nearby where she can see it. I thought this would be the perfect item for another bloggy giveaway, don’t forget to check out the others.

One lucky winner will get a Lands’ End lunch box, there are your perfect for the older kids lunchboxes to your kindergarten lunchbox, in other words the character ones. The character one is what we got (puppy form), which has a particular animal on the front (pillow form) that is sewed to the top of the lunchbox. Inside the lunchbox is insulated so no need to worry about food getting bad. At the top of the lunchbox is a small strap which makes carrying it very easy for little ones.
The Character Lunchboxes are Babygirl’s favorite, they have four different themes: dog, ballet shoes, polar bear and horse. I know the puppy is really cute and soft, I can only imagine the others like this. As or the others, I know my oldest would’ve chose the Hotstuff lunch box and his sister would’ve grabbed the one that looks like a purse. There’s something for every age.

Each lunchbox has:

- insulated lunchbox
- PVC free
- small strap for handling
- interior is leak proof
- Carabiner clips it to any of our packs for “no hands” carrying
- Self-repairing zippers make rethreading them a snap

RULES: Head on over to Lands’ End Lunchboxes and tell me which one you would want if you won. Have fun! Drawing will be on Election day!
