And the winner is.... Terra H.! Congrats, I will be sending out a confirmation email shortly! Thanks to all that entered and don't forget to check out my other giveaways, still a few days left to enter!!!!

Hope you all had  great weekend!!!

Some great deals at Walmart!

If you are in need of bed sheets, glasses, basically anything for the kitchen or bedroom, I'd recommend checking out your local Walmart! We were in desperate need of bedsheets for the kids beds, and I got such a great deal! Sheet sets are marked down to $3 each! They are the Jersey sheets, so they are nice and soft, the kids LOVE them. I picked up a Comforter for $9, a couple of blankets marked down to $1 each, and a mirror for $2! These were all considered part of the "Dorm Room" section, but hey, everything matched the kids rooms and I couldn't pass up those prices!
Then I found 2 pack Tumblers for 10 cents, little gadgets like a Can opener, spatula, and ladle for 25 cents, and some bowls and pitchers for 50 cents! I So Love when I hit the clearance aisles like this!

I walked out of the store with over $100 worth of stuff, and paid less than $20 for all of it! My favorite part was when the cashier told me how well i shopped, lol!

Anytime Costumes Review AND Giveaway!!!

Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays, not just because we get candy, but because we get to dress up as pretty much anything we want! Having kids, I really enjoyed picking out their costumes when they were younger, and now that they are older I look forward to seeing what they'll pick to be every year! However, shopping at the store for costumes can be a hassle, trying to find the right size, or even just having the costume itself in stock, it can get stressful! I had the wonderful opportunity to work with, an awesome online costume store that has TONS of costumes! Costumes for Adults, Children, Couples, etc. And then once you pick your costume, you can find all of your accesories and makeup right there too! It's one stop shopping, without leaving your home and no hassle at all! Just pick your costume, and wait for it to arrive.
I let me daughter choose a costume from AnytimeCostumes, she spent a long time trying to decide if she wanted to be Hannah Montana, a Renissance Princess, or Alex from Wizards of Waverly Place. She finally decided that she would be Alex for Halloween, it's her favorite show! We placed our order and about 5 days later our costume arrived. We tried it on and she looks A-DOR-ABLE!!! It's really a simple costume, with a dress, hat, and leg warmers, and together it's just too cute! And we'll add a "magic" wand, she'll be the best wizard in the school!
I've also found a few costumes for myself, the Dorothy "Wizard of Oz", and the "Love at First Bite" costumes are 2 of my fav's! Now here's to hoping we get invited to a costume party this year!!

Here's the best part! One lucky reader is going to win a costume of their choice, up to $50!!! Any costume, for you, your child, it's your choice!! All you have to do is let me know which Anytime Costume you'd pick! ( Mandatory entry!)

Kung Zhu Review AND Giveaway!!

Thanks to MomSelect, a few months ago I was chosen to host a Kung Zhu party for my kids and their friends! I wasn't sure what to expect, but WOW!, what a great party kit we were given!

On the day of the party, my son had 3 of his friends over and my daughter had 2 friends, and a family friend brought her son. Each child was able to recieve a Kung Zhu hamster, set of armor, and accesories! The pets are aimed more towards the boys, but W\what I found great about these is that the boys AND girls were having a blast, and they were all different ages, ranging from 6-11! I think the older boys were enjoying it the most, and didn't want to leave when the party was over : )

Kung Zhu Pets are available at many retailers right now, including Walmart, Target and Toys R Us, retailing around $7.99 for the hamsters and accesories anywhere from $9.99 to $19.99.  I think they would be a great Holiday gift, definetly a great Birthday gift, or just a little surprise for your child!

Heres the best part! One lucky reader will win their own Kung Zhu Pet and accesory! You just need to let me know which Kung Zhu is your favorite! ( Mandatory entry!)

Back to School!

So the kids have been back to school for a week now, and of course my daughter just loves it! My son on the other hand, well, he could take it or leave it! He started Jr. High this year, and he's excited about that, but getting up an extra hour earlier is what he isn't liking too much : (
And I'm enjoying it too, but sometimes I think the summer is way too short! We only did a handful of things of our Summer List, thanks to my wonderful migraines that put me out for days at a time... but they both said they had a great summer so I guess I should be thankful for that!
Now onto the fun part! My daughter is in a "Peanut Free Zone" in her class, she has a few classmates with allergies. I need some good ideas for snacktime, because Goldfish and Ritz Crackers get boring after awhile! We do fruit, but mostly just grapes or apples. I'd love some new creative ideas on what I can send in for her that she'll love and want to continue to eat!
Thanks for any ideas : )

Winner of the Cover Girl Smokey Eye Kit!

And the winner is.....  Cheryl F. -The Lucky Ladybug!
I will be sending an email shortly for you to claim your prize!

Thanks to all that entered and check back soon, I have some great giveaways coming up, including CSN STores, and Anytime Costumes!!!
