My SnapTotes handbag

0 comments
I can't believe that I forgot to tell you guys about my new Snaptotes handbag!!
It met all my expectations and THEN SOME.
If you can recall, I mentioned my recent snaptotes order in one of my earlier posts.
Well, my bag came in a few days after the post. I couldn't have been happier with the results either.
Here's the bag I chose again :

I'm going to be honest....
I have seen other photo handbags out there and they are ummm how should I put this??
Not so good
So, when I was ordering my Snaptotes bag I wasn't expecting to fall head over heels about it the way I did.
The quality is SUPERB and the photos looked great.
(even the cat's pic) hee hee
Here's the finished product :

.
.
Oh, that's right.....
There is no photo of the finished product.
WHY?
Well, you see as soon as the package came I jumped into the car and headed to my mom's house. I could NOT contain my excitement. Even though Mother's Day is still a week away.....I JUST HAD TO GIVE IT TO HER RIGHT THEN AND THERE! I could NOT wait.
What did she think of her new snaptotes handbag?
SHE LOVED IT!
She actually hugged it and then we sniffed it again together.
(gotta love that leather smell)
Thanks Snaptotes for making my mom's MOTHER'S DAY gift such a hit.

A little about Hotel for Dogs:
The hilarious family comedy HOTEL FOR DOGS finds a new home on April 28, 2009 when it arrives on DVD and Blu-ray from Paramount Home Entertainment. Starring Emma Roberts (Nancy Drew), Jake T. Austin (“Wizards of Waverly Place”), Don Cheadle (Ocean’s 11), Lisa Kudrow (“Friends”) and Kevin Dillon (“Entourage”), the exciting and inspiring animal adventure shows just how far friendship and imagination can take you. When two orphans find themselves in a foster home with a strict “no pets” policy, they set out to find a home for their canine companion and end up creating a haven for all the strays in the city. Filled with loveable dogs and ingenious kids, HOTEL FOR DOGS has the kind of pedigree that the whole family can enjoy.
Loaded with over 45 minutes of special features, the HOTEL FOR DOGS DVD and Blu-ray presentations include the making of Hotel For Dogs, behind-the-scenes featurettes, deleted scenes, photo galleries and more, as well as commentary from director Thor Freudenthal, producer Ewan “Jack” Leslie and cast members

Ok, I am going crazy trying to find the perfect may day basket.

Congrats
Emilie said...
I wouldn't have to spend money on my mother-in-law if I won these! :)



If you don't see the little crown on the back of your card.....
then you have the WRONG CARD!
I gifted my family with their first recordable greeting cards this past Valentine's Day thanks to Hallmark and I intend to do it again for Mother's day.
Have you received one of their recordable greeting cards?
They definately make those special events and days more memorable because they are so personal.
You can say and seal anything you want to into that ONE card.
I love them!
Of course, the music at the end is always a big hit.
However, if you want the card to be all talk and no music Hallmark also offers 24 new recordable designs without the music.
Also new to the Hallmark line of greeting cards....
photo frame cards
(We are actually giving one of these to DAD for Father's Day!)
You can slide your photo right inside the frame and then record your message.
Pretty awesome, huh?


~Giveaway~
I am going to be giving away an assortment of Hallmark greeting cards.

1 hallmark recordable greeting card for MOM
1 hallmark recordable greeting card for DAD

Random Thoughts tuesday

I'll have a burger with a side of butt, please.
So, what do you think of the new Burger King commercial?
Ya know....the one with a bunch of ladies dancing around with square butts?
The one that is advertising a KIDS MEAL?
I will admit that when I first saw it I snickered.
I mean COME ON there were grown women dancing around with phone books stuck to their butts.
That is KIND OF funny, right?
(and baby got back was my jam back in the day)
But what's the point?

OK, I know that they are advertising a Spongebob Squarepants kid's meal but his name is SQUAREPANTS not SQAURE BUTT. How do they know his butt is square? Sure he wears sqare pants so one will assume his butt is square but it could be perfectly round for all we know.
Oh, and the KING.......well, he freaks me out.
Anyone else?

***
Those free credit report.com commercials are always stuck in my head.
They are pretty catchy tunes.
Just sayin'

***

I watched the news today about the infamous AIR FORCE ONE photoshoot that scared the mess outta those new yorkers. First of all.....
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?
Why on earth would they not notify the city of New York and tell them that they would be flying down for a photoshoot?

I DON'T GET IT!
Come to think of it, Have they not heard of photoshop?

Big WHOOP, huh?
I have been digging in the dirt all day. Well, actually only digging in my flower beds. I spent a total of three hours out there.
Guess what else? I did NOT plant flowers! That was just me de-weeding.
My poor hands have seen better days, that's for sure.
Wonder if anyone will toss me a compliment on my hard work?
I mean....
I know it's just dirt and all
but
I must say
THAT DIRT LOOKS PRETTY DARN GOOD!

T.G.I.F !
Join us for Aloha Friday. Click on the banner above for more information.

Ok, here's the scenario . . .
You MUST perform in a talent show (NO IF'S, AND'S or BUT'S about it) You just HAVE to participate.
Would you SING or DANCE??
*You have to pick from those two choices*

I don't think I would make anyone endure my singing so I would have to get up there and make a fool of myself by dancing.
Hey, I can do a MEAN running man, ya know?

Speaking of dancing....
Check out this video below.
I love how mom is in the background just knitting away not even paying attention.
Brings back so many memories
(Oh, and I used to have some hammer pants. Sad, huh?)
LOL!

Tyson any'tizers

0 comments

In our home I am always trying to come up with snack ideas. My kids tend to get into their "groove" and want the same things OVER and OVER again. While that may be ok for them, It drives this momma mad.
*Mainly because I eat what THEY eat and I am getting tired of mini corndogs, nuggets and all the other foods they crave on a daily basis.
I am proud to say that we now have NEW favorites to stock the fridge with ! !
Tyson Any'tizers
YUM YUM YUM (that pretty much sums it all up)
Tyson Foods sent us two boxes of their NEW any'tizers to try.
We received the Stuffed Chicken Cordon Bleu Minis and the Stuffed Chicken Pepperoni Minis. (my favorite)
Now, if you are thinking that these Tyson Any'tizers are just another one of those "pre-packaged boxes of FLUFF without the UMPH" then you are definately mistaken, my friend.
Ok...
I will admit visions of breading without the filler did come into my mind.
WHY? Because that's mainly what's in the frozen food section these days.
Tyson any'tizers are so MUCH more!
First of all they are larger than I imagined. We actually had the Stuffed Chicken Pepperoni Minis for lunch. (My oldest daughter and myself)

The taste was YUMMMMMM and this is not only coming from ME but also my 10 year old kid.
Tyson any'tizers are not BREADING stuffed with chicken and pepperoni.
THE CHICKEN is the actual wrap and the pepperoni and cheese are stuffed inside.
Am I the only one that got giddy about that?

Any time is the right time for Tyson Any'tizers®. They are the hot, substantial snacks that are always perfectly delicious. Ideal for any snack, partying with friends or as a unique meal, they're unbelievably easy to prepare in just minutes. With so many varieties to choose from, the only hard part is deciding which ones to eat first.

Tyson Any'tizers
can be found in the frozen foods section of your grocery store. They come in a variety of flavors and I highly suggest the Stuffed Chicken Pepperoni Minis *mmm*.
Tyson Any'tizers come packaged in boxed or bagged (larger quantity)

Pick some up today!
**come back here next week for a giveaway**

Tamagotchi Music Star....A Pop Star created by YOU!

64 comments

Update: due to some blogger issues with the comments. This giveaway has been extended for another few days. I will end it on Wednesday, May 13th.

I am sorry that some of your comments got left out. I have no clue as to what happened. Thanks for notifying my about the issue!

I have another great suggestion for RAINY DAY FUN.... Tamagotchi Music Star
After seeing the commercials, My kids were tickled to receive the Tamagotchi Music Star.
We have actually had other Tamagotchi products before but this one tops them all!

A little about Tamagotchi Music Stars:
Aspiring musicians can achieve “rock star” status with the new Tamagotchi Music Star - the world’s first interactive virtual pet toy that lets kids produce a musical Pop Star! Available at major retailers, Tamagotchi Music Star lets kids train their Music Star characters to become great musicians, form a band and perform in live concerts, while competing to become the Ultimate Music Star!

To experience the pop star lifestyle online, kids can visit and explore the all-new interactive Music City section of TamaTown.com. Using Gotchi Points and special passwords, kids who visit Music City can personalize their own “virtual” room for their Tamagotchi, shop for instruments, buy cool clothes for their big audition, create and produce their own music tunes and even upload their own custom-made tunes to become the #1 Pop Star!
With all-new games, features and activities, the fun of Music City never ends!

There are actually 12 different music star designs to choose from but we decided on Rock City.....because umm we ROCK!
After you name your lil music star you will need to take care of him then pretty soon you will have a true music star that forms a band, plays in concerts and becomes a great musician.
Your music star will begin as a pre-schooler and eventually end up as an adult before retiring.
However, if you do not take care of him properly he may move on ya! We learned that the hard way and had to start all over.
Taking care of your little Music Star is simple. There are icons on the top and bottom of your tamagotchi screen, just click on one and you can feed, play and even take your music star shopping.
Do you have what it takes to produce the ULTIMATE MUSIC STAR?

The fun doesn't stop there.Visit Tamatown.com for some online fun. You can create your own tunes, personalize your room and chat with your friends all in this virtual environment.
The Tamagotchi Music Star is definately a great RAINY DAY ACTIVITY!
It would also serve as a great distraction during those long car rides....
Think - Summer Vacation time
***
Would you like to win a Tamagotchi Music Star?
I have two to give away!

All you have to do is visit Tamagotchi.com, browse through the entire collection of Music Stars.
Come back here and let me know which one fits your kiddo best.
Giveaway will end on Wednesday, May 6th and winners will be announced.

Sorry IE users

0 comments
I have no idea what is going on with the blog. I use Firefox and can see everything just fine. The issue is with IE. I am trying to figure this out and hopefully I can get it back up where it is supposed to be.

The Tamogatchi giveaway will be re-posted so you can comment.
Update: It WAS the Tamogatchi post causing the issue.....I had to delete it and I will get it back up later today.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Does it seem like I am trying to tell you guys something with all these cleaning product giveaways?
hee hee!
CLEAN UP
I was extremely happy to receive the NEW finish Quantum dishwashing detergent a couple of weeks ago.
It couldn't have come at a better time either because I had just ran out of the brand I was currently using and momma had a full load of dirty dishes just hiding out in the dishwasher.
The first thing I noticed about the finish Quantum tablets....
NO EXTRA PACKAGING TO UNWRAP
Gosh, those little packages annoy me.
The second thing I noticed was the sleek and rather cool look.

A little about *NEW finish Quantum:
Finish Quantum is an innovative new automatic dishwashing detergent designed for consumers who want perfect dishes every time they wash. Finish, the new name for Electrasol, delivers a clean superior to the leading dishwashing detergent. Finish Quantum leaves nothing behind but the shine helping others experience the perfection they deserve in their everyday routines.

Finish Quantum features 3 powerful and active ingredients:
1. Powerball with Jet Dry gel for amazing shine.
2. Powermax Bleach removes stains like tea and coffee.
3. Powerful enzymes soften burnt-on food. (My favorite part)

So, my question for you....
Do you want clean and shiny dishes everytime?
Pick up NEW Finish Quantum and be sure to follow up with Jet Dry!
Hey, if you can't hire a maid then you might as well make your job a little simpler.

GIVEAWAY

I have some finish Quantum tablets and a bottle of Jet Dry for two lucky winners.

It seems like there was some sort of big baby BOOM around here. I am not even joking!
There are 4 ladies in my church that will be delivering lil bundles of joy very very soon. My sister is pregnant with her first baby and three of my cousins are having babies around the same time.
BOY OH BOY! or GIRL OH GIRL!
I'll be the first one to admit.....I love a good baby shower.
However, with all these babies coming at one time it can be pretty overwhelming not only to the moms to be but to the shower goers like myself.
What to buy?
Where to find it?
What do they need?
Do they need clothing for girls or clothing for boys?
What about that?
AHHHH!
Thank goodness for sites like ShopWiki. ShopWiki is the ultimate search engine for just about anything that you could imagine.
ShopWiki actively crawls more than 200,000 online stores to ensure you’ll find the products you want at the best prices.
For instance, I just went and typed in infant clothing and it immediately brought up over 3,000 listings for me to choose from. I can search by brand, price and even color!
Shopping made easy, that's how I like it.
Now all I have to do is make my decisions on the many gifts that I will be buying.
My sister is the only picky one. So, I had to email her for suggestions. I know she stated that she needed nursery furniture but I think my mom has that covered.

I was thinking more along the lines of toys or games.

Because let's face it....
A kid can never have too many toys especially if they are NOT my kids.
hee hee
What do you think?
What are some of your favorite gift ideas for a baby shower?

I would like to try the ULTRA Hand Dish Wash Liquid Natural Lavender & Rosemary
Donna, send me your mailing info for shipment!

Tough cleaning power with NO harsh chemicals or toxins.....
That's what I'm talking about!

Bright Green packs the power without damaging the Earth.
So, even though you may not TOTALLY enjoy cleaning at least you can find comfort in knowing that your cleaning products are actually helping form a cleaner and healthier planet.
It doesn't get any better than that.
Well, actually it could.
I mean....
If I had a maid to use my BRIGHT GREEN products then that would be even better.
hee hee!
A little about Bright Green products:
We developed Bright Green™ in partnership with Scientific Certification Systems (SCS), a leading third-party provider of certification, auditing and testing services and standards in environmental protection and social responsibility. SCS reviewed each Bright Green™ product for naturally derived and biodegradable ingredients, post-consumer recycled content and energy efficiency.

I recently had the opportunity to try a couple of the Bright Green products.
I tried the All Purpose Cleaner which is great for cleaning just about ANYTHING.
(my kind of product....One bottle for many jobs)

I also received the Ultra Hand Dish Wash liquid.
I love this stuff. It has a awesome scent of natural lavender & Rosemary not to mention it cleans remarkably well.

Move over Dawn....You have a contender!
**little sidenote: It also makes for a great bubble bath. You should see the suds it makes.
~Mother of the Year participant over here~
Yes, I ran out of bubble bath and YES I used Bright Green hand dish wash liquid.

No harmful toxins or nasty chemicals, remember?

The Big Girl likes cantalope.

The little man doesn't like any of it but says his head is shaped like a cantalope.
I have to agree.
He gets it from his dad.

THe cream cheese brownies look so yuumy. I must try them!!!!!!
*all those comments certainly paid off!
CONGRATS!

OH ME.OH MY!
FAIRYTALE BROWNIES
WOW....
I don't even know where to begin.
I received the most WONDERFUL package E----VER not too long ago.
I actually almost knocked the poor ups guy down trying to get to the package.
All I saw was the word BROWNIES and that was it!
(You see, me and brownies....we go way back.)
I couldn't contain myself.
I had to open the box.
I even opened the box in front of my kids. *THAT WAS A BIG STEP FOR ME as I usually have to hide my goodies. (I am not ashamed of that either!)
OH BOY ! ! !
Fairytale Brownies DELIVERED in a BIG WAY.
There were chocolate chip brownies, cream cheese brownies, caramel brownies, expresso, pecan, peanut butter....
Every kind of brownie that you could imagine was packed in this ONE box.
I tore open the package and took my first bite.
I WAS IN HEAVEN.
The brownies were so moist and the flavors were out of this world.
Fairytale Brownies rocked my socks off!
I can not even type this post without drooling over my keyboard.
AY YI YI !
*Can't you tell how good they were by all the !!!!'s that I have used?*

A little about FairyTale Brownies:
Founded in 1992, Fairytale Brownies began in a friend's catering kitchen using David's Mom's 50-year-old secret family brownie recipe. Those days are gone as the duo now oversees their direct-mail gourmet brownie business in a facility where they bake over 2.5 million brownies annually. In October 2006, the pair moved their bakery to a new 26,000-square-foot facility needed to accommodate their extraordinary growth.
It began as the simple idea of spreading joy through gourmet brownies. For more than 16 years, we've been devoted to providing an extraordinary product and customer experience.
This season we're delighted to unveil an updated look and new packaging for all of our products. We are also proud to say that every batch of Fairytale Brownies is still baked by hand using our 50-year-old family recipe and all-natural ingredients including rich, dark Callebaut Belgian chocolate, pure creamery butter and farm fresh eggs. With so many new options, we know you'll find the perfect gift to make an unforgettable impression on your family, friends, customers and colleagues.

Freshness
All-natural Fairytale Brownies are free of trans fats, hydrogenated oils, preservatives and artificial colors. Our brownies are guaranteed fresh upon arrival, and brownie care instructions are included in every gift box. If not indulging within one week, freezing is recommended. Fairytale Brownies are individually wrapped, and thawing takes less than one hour at room temperature.

Kosher
All Fairytale Brownies products are certified Kosher under the supervision of the Greater Phoenix Vaad Hakashruth.

Nut-Based Brownies
We have 4 flavors of nut-based brownies: Peanut Butter, Pecan, Toffee Crunch, and Walnut.

Sugar Free Brownies
Sugar Free Magic Morsels are bite-size gems that deliver all the luscious chocolate flavor of original Fairytale flavors. We bake our sugar free brownies with Maltitol.


I am sad to say that my brownies are all gone now.....
But I will definately be placing another order VERY VERY SOON!
Fairytale Brownies would make GREAT gifts.

You know all that stuff around your house just collecting dust?
Ah, come on....
You know what I am talking about.
The stuff that you toss to the side and "SAVE" because you just KNOW that you will use it again someday.
Stuff like those air freshener plug-ins. You keep telling yourself that all you need is a plug in replacement or a new battery and it will work again YET there it sits.....in the same place you put it three months ago.
How about that barbie leg. Surely, one day you are going to find that peg-legged barbie and fix her.
Chewbacca's head....You just KNOW that his body is not too far off.
Oh, and let's not forget the cute white tin. WHO CARES if it has a snowman on it. If you said that you were going to add a little modge podge on it and make it new BY GEORGE you are going to do it.......Now it may take you 6 months but I am sure that you will get around to it.
The list could go on and on and ON.

Well, I am proud to say that I tossed ALL OF THAT STUFF TODAY!
It kind of feels good too.
