Contac Cold + Flu Medication Giveaway / Review

I love winter....I love the Holidays...But.......

I do not love all the germs that are so kindly shared amongst all of us.  Especially when my lovely children are so gracious to bring their new germy friends home from school and share them with me (their extremely busy and always on the go to keep up with everyone, mom)!!!

And as any mother knows...

MOMS AREN'T ALLOWED TO BE SICK...EVER!!!

But, what happens when that fateful day occurs?  That morning when you can't imagine getting out of bed and facing the busy day head.  Cold and Flu season has found you!!

Well get into your medicine cabinet and pull out your box of Contac Cold + Flu Medication. And of course you will have already purchased a box at retail locations nationwide; because Contac Cold + Flu is available in medication section of your local drugstore, supercenter, convenience store or grocer. (Average retail price for Contac Cold + Flu Day and Night is $8.50.) **Enter for you chance to win a box of Contac below**



Contac Cold + Flu Day and Night Medication will help you bounce back in a jiffy during this long flu and cold season.  So you can keep up with your children and family life.

I love how Contac offers the combo box of both Day and Night caplets to help with all the miserable cold and flu symptoms.  And better yet, the caplets are color coded...to make sure you take the correct one...white is for daytime and yellow (like the moon) for night time.

Did you know Contac Cold + Flu Daytime provides relief of nasal congestion, stuffy nose, sore throat, sinus pressure, fever, headaches and body aches. The maximum strength formula provides non-drowsy relief to help you power through the day!

And Contac Cold + Flu Nighttime is multi-symptom providing relief of nasal congestion, runny/stuffy nose, sneezing, sore throat, sinus pressure, fever and body aches. This reliable formula provides relief at the highest possible level without a prescription to help you get your much needed rest!

I can say - during my parents visit over Thanksgiving, I was able to see the full effects of Contac Cold + Flu Day and Nightime.  My father was suffering from a terrible cold.  I shared my free box of Contac with him and he is now convinced how effective this product is and so am I.  Each dos of Contac made him feel back to his normal self and ready to be part of our family's holiday celebration.  I already purchased him a few boxes of his own to take home.  Thank you Contac for saving our celebration.

Olive and Nell LivyBelt Giveaway / Review Functional Fashion for Kids $18 Value!


As I parent I think one of the biggest clothing challenges..that ranks right up there with trying to get mystery stains out of clothing is....

Keep my children's pants up and in place.  I don't know about you, but it always seems like they are sprouting up in height, but their weight hasn't caught up yet (boy, if adults could only have that problem.)  So getting taller and not gaining weight leads to the infamous problem....

Either you have a child wearing pants that are WAY TO SHORT or a child wearing pants that are the perfect length but will not stay up.

So, in comes an amazing product that was created by parents (I figured it had to be).

LivyBelt by Olive and Nell


LivyBelt not only will keep your child's pants in place, but it can be used as a fashion accessory.  Say, "No" to frumpy belts that are not comfortable!!  And "Yes" to LivyBelt.  I am sure you can find a LivyBelt to meet your child's needs and style.

LivyBelt is sized, "one size fits most".  All the material used to create LivyBelts is pre-washed and needs to be hand washed and dried flat as needed.  But, don't worry, LivyBelts dry in a hurry, so they will be ready when you need them.

When I took the three LivyBelt's out of their packaging, I was surprised how comfortable they felt.  Comfortable but durable and fashionable.  They reminded me of over sized scrunches for people's hair.

Did you know the LivyBelt is offered in three different styles.  The Lizzy which is 9" thick (the plaid colored one). The Lexi which is thinner, only 4.5" thick (the polka dotted one).  And my favorite The Lila with a bow that is only 4.5" thick (the brown bow one, silly!). 

**Enter below for your chance to win The Lila Livybelt**

The Olive and Nell website is so easy to navigate. 

I love the variety offered in each of the three styles currently offered.  And while I was checking out Olive and Nell's online presence on Facebook, Twitter and their webpage; I found something very important! Something so important I need to shout it from the roof tops. 

Olive and Nell donates 10% of its profits to children's charities and also looked our for our environment. 

Olive and Nell uses 100% percent recycled material for its packaging and shipping labels.  It is great to see a USA based business (produced and manufactured in Minnesota) succeeding. 


Good Luck!

Rachel and the TreeSchoolers DVD Review / Great Preschool Movie


The perfect DVD for any child in preschool.

Introducing....

Rachel and the TreeSchoolers DVD

This New educational series for preschool children is a home run!!  I am amazed and pleased as a mother of a preschooler, how Two Little Hands Productions was able to base this series on a comprehensive preschool program.

What do I mean by comprehensive preschool program?  It means that all the major studied areas like language, reading, math and science are covered.  Plus, key social-emotional skills like kindness, empathy, and self control are also incorporated.

All of these necessary components are excellent, but the Rachel and the TreeSchoolers program bring it well beyond.  It actually teaches children to learn how to learn.  And what do that create?  Success!!  Success in the comfort of your own home!

My son and I had the chance to review the 1st episode, "A Rainy Day".  I first want to say my son LOVED it and is in LOVE with Rachel and the TreeSchoolers.  It was great to see how rain interrupting daily activities in this episode could create so much learning.  And it truly did.  The bright colors and fun spin put on everything, kept my son's attention, very easily (and that is saying a lot!).

Not only do you get a great video.  Two Little Hands Productions offer a FREE ACTIVITY  GUIDE to parents and teachers for a FREE "Rainy Day" activity guide.  It includes fun and easy activities for home or in the classroom.  The PDF guide includes a full set of printable resources, including a My Rainy Day book template, character cards, song lyrics and a fun certificate.

Rise of Rock Festivals - Event Supplies


Have you ever had the opportunity to attend a Rock Festival or another other type of large scale event?  Well if you have, I am certain you have noticed the huge role event supplies and concession machines play.  Being a foodie I love the wide selection of dining options and even quality apparel available to purchase.

Think back to the last event you attended?  What did you eat?  I know the last concert I was at, I enjoyed gourmet pizza and a great glass of wine.  Who would have thought; such great food at a concert?  But, the times are a changing and in my book for the better.  Rock on!!

I will never forgot the summer I helped build homes.

I will never forget the summer I had the oppournity to help build homes.  I learned so much and got into killer shape.  I couldn't believe all the work and special skills that go into constructing a well made house.  All the planning, ordering materials, blue prints, man hours...I could go on for hours will all the things that are necessary.

But I am so suprised how just within 15 years, how things have evoled within the home building market.  And one of the big chances is the wide use of insulated concrete forms.  This cost effective and green technology is made from 100% recycled waste wood.  Don't worry it is clean and doesn't use foam or polystyrene.  These forms use Durisol which is a proprietary wood concrete material (cement bonded wood fiber).  

I know when I get the chance to have a new home constructed I will definately look into using this green building option.

Enhancing the “Man Cave”

Enhancing the “Man Cave”

This is a guest post written by John Giusti

In the basement of my parents house, there was a “bar” area. I was excited when they were getting this installed, but all it ended up consisting of was a wooden countertop coming out of the wall, with two stools to sit at. It was a nice addition to the downstairs living area, but I don’t think it qualified for the title of “bar.” It certainly wasn’t something that I was going to show off to my friends, inviting them all to come and drink at the house.

When my friend and I moved out together as young bachelors, it was obvious that we would choose one room to be our “man-cave,” a growing trend. The thing was, I didn’t want the same old “bar” countertop, the same old sports posters and funny sayings, or the same old video game system and movie collection that seems to be the epitome of the modern day man-cave. These things are part of the equation, certainly, but I wanted more. I wanted it to be authentic. For example, I purchased soda systems, bar mats, and beer coolers from Culinary Depot. Not only do I have walking space behind the bar, so that somebody can “play bartender,” but I have the beginnings of an actual bar because the unique supplies I found there. This room, my favorite one in the house, is always going to be a work in progress, but it is already leaps and bounds ahead of the “bar” from my parents house.

Vinyl Decals Wall Quotes, Make a Statement Today! Giveaway / Review Approx. $38 Value


I must share something with everyone...
 
I had no idea how such a simple and beautiful phrase added to one of my living room walls could make such a impact and change the atmosphere of this room.
 
Thank you Vinyl Disorder for allowing me to experience the magic of your affordable and high quality vinyl wall quote decal.  I enjoying looking through your site to try to decide what item to review --- and keep watching to enter to win a Vinyl Decal of your own ----.
 
I couldn't believe my eyes....over 70,000 items to pick from and yet, the website is simple to navigate and offers so many helpful tips and suggestions.  Finally I made my choice.
 
I was very curious how my wall quote would arrive safely.
 
Look at the perfect packaging.
And see what awaited inside...
My quote, instructions and suggestions and a great smoothing tool.  The instructions were very through and I decided to risk it and place my quote on a slightly textured wall....and as you can see from the 1st photo...it worked!  And I love my vinyl decal from Vinyldisorder.com.

I think my biggest tip is make sure you have plenty of time set aside for application.  Do to the fact that my quote was very long and intricate and the textured wall...from start to finish it took me approximately 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours...but it was so worth my time and effort!
And don't forgot to center your vinyl wall quote before applying.  I used painters tape of top of my quote to get it centered.

After I was able to get it just right...it was time to use the provided smoothing tool to help get the vinyl letters to stick on the wall.
 
Then very, very carefully and slowly peeling and remove the backing.

I am so pleased with the finished result...I will be buying more vinyl decals to make statements in other rooms throughout my house!

So who wants to be the 1 lucky person who will win their

own up to a size 36" decal in any color besides Gold

 Leaf for their home???

Win 2 ReUsies Re-Useable Sandwich and Snack Bags Giveaway / Review $16 Value


How much thought do you give to your use of plastic snack and sandwich bags?

How many of these bags do you use personally or for your family during any given month?

I am ashamed to admit how many plastic bags we use monthly in our home.  These plastic bags are used and discarded for everything from cold lunches for my boys, husband and myself.  The reason I am ashamed is how wasteful and expensive this convenience habit has become.

I am thankful I have recently been introduced to a whole new and re-usable way to make cold lunches and even snack storage GREEN.

ReUsies is on Facebook and Twitter.

ReUsies are a re-usable bags that are available in two different sizes.  You can selected sandwich (7.5" x 6") or snack size (5" x 6").  Don't worry!  ReUsies actually hold up to it all.  They are 100% cotton and lined with a PBA Free leak-resistance nylon.

I love the endless variety of designs that are offered, so you can customize your ReUsies to who will be using them.  I know my boys love the Camo and Skelly Bones designs.  I really like the solid colors and the Peace Flower design.
ReUsies are very easy to clean, re-use and take care of.  Just through your ReUsies in the dishwasher, or your laundry washer and dryer.  But if you want to keep your ReUsies bright and looking new make sure to hand wash them after each use.

The strong Velcro closure is perfect to keep your sandwich or snacks perfectly in place.  I love using my snack size ReUsies to hold fresh fruit and sometimes veggies.  They also work great for crackers and sweet snacks too.   And check out the back of a ReUsies...

They have added a strip of Velcro on the back so you can secure your flap in the back while you enjoy or sandwich or snacks..That is a genius addition!!

So who wants to win a two pack of ReUsies of their own?  You can even select the single design you want!!!

Enter below for your chance to win and good luck...Think Green!

Week 21- on Nutrisystem and I still can't believe how my life has changed.  I continue to learn so much about myself and how a person needs to eat to remain healthy and happy.  Portion control is a HUGE part of Nutrisystem and so is making smart food choices when snacking and eating off on the plan.  (Hello Thanksgiving....PORTION CONTROL IS THE KEY!!!)

But heck...who needs to eat off the plan when you receive Nutrisystem food like I did this week.  I was thrilled to be sent so many different food options! 

I have fell in LOVE with the Breakfast burritos and can't wait to try out the lunch burritos later this week.

And let me tell you I also have NEW desserts to sample and savor and enjoy....like

Red Velvet Whoopie pies, Chocolate Brownie Sundae and Chocolate Cheesecake!!!

I LOVE you Nutrisystem for allowing me to indulge into some of your other food choice!  I feel like a little kid at Christmas time!!

Mrs. Cubbison's Stuffing Mix Giveaway / Review Happy Thanksgiving!

Oh, my gosh!  Thanksgiving is just around the corner....

And you know what that means???

It means I get to create my family famous Stuffing!  Stuffing!  Stuffing!  Stuffing!

Am I the only one who almost wets themselves with the excitement of creating and enjoying homemade stuffing? (I sure hope not, lol.)

If you can't tell already I absolutely adore stuffing and it is my favorite food item served during Thanksgiving.  But, my stuffing may be homemade but I do make my stuffing preparation a little easier with the help of Mrs. Cubbison's

Mrs. Cubbison's offers many products, including Stuffing Mix which is a must, to have on hand!

I know I will be using the amazing Mrs. Cubbison's Stuffing Mix I received to help with my review at my house in  a little over a week to create my stuffing.  I wanted to share my recipe with all of you, but believe it or not?...It is just in my head. **Watch for an update with photos of my stuffing*

So here is the low down on my recipe.  I want to apologize that there are no measurements, but I don't use any.  I just make it.

First I saute onions and celery in a little bit of butter until nice and soft.  I then add poultry seasoning and sage into the mixture.  Next I pour the Mrs. Cubbison's Stuffing Mix into a large bowl and add in Chicken stock or turkey stock until the mix is softened.  Next incorporate the cooked veggie mixture.  Add more stock as needed.  I place the finished mixture into a large pan and bake in a 350 degree oven for approximately 45 minutes....then the stuffing is done and ready to enjoy!

Did you know Mrs. Cubbison's has a great service for all those preparing for Thanksgiving?  They offer helpful tips.  These tips cover everything from food to decor (I love the Turkey Ribbon decoration idea).  You can also find Mrs. Cubbison's on Facebook too.

So as you can see, Mrs. Cubbison's obviously loves Thanksgiving.  They have compiled data from a great Thanksgiving Across America Survey.  It was fun taking a look at all the findings, like Christmas is the top favorite holiday with Thanksgiving in a strong second. 

So who wants to win a mystery prize from Mrs. Cubbison's?  Enter below for your chance to win and Happy Holidays Everyone.

Disclaimer: Mrs. Cubbison's provided me with a free toy to review/giveaway, and I was under no obligation to review it if I so chose. Nor was I under any obligation to write a positive review or sponsor a product giveaway in return for the free product.

Purex plus Oxi Laundry Soap Detergent Giveaway / Review 3 Winners!

3 Boys,
3 Very Active Boys,
Equals.....
Tons and Tons of Laundry with Even More Stains!

Solution....
 
Purex plus Oxi - New Stain Fighting Liquid Detergent from Purex.

This new and Very Powerful detergent has exceeded my expectations.  I was amazing and pleased to learn that Purex plus Oxi works with over 101 different stains.  And I have the sinking suspicion that I will soon enough find the 102 stain it will help resolve.

The reason Purex's new liquid detergent battles so many different stains is because it contains 3 stain fighting enzymes.  Each of these enzymes work against different types of stains...so you get more stain fighting power in just 1 simple bottle.

Don't worry if you own a HE washer.  Purex plus Oxi like all the Purex products offered on the market today will work on both HE washers and traditional washers, like I have in my home.

Almost forget to mention Purex plus Oxi smells amazingly fresh and clean, while still being hypoallergenic.  AND you can use this detergent has a pre-treater too!  Just pour a little on your stains and rub it in.  Just let it sit a few minutes and then add it to your washer and get it started (don't forget to all your measurement of Purex plus Oxi to get your laundry nice and clean).

So who wants to win a coupon for a FREE bottle of Purex plus Oxi?  Enter below for your chance and Good Luck!

*Purex provided a free sample of their Purex plus Oxi laundry detergent so I could write a review and provided Free coupons for a giveaway. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.**
