Zarbee’s Cough Syrup Review

I got in touch with Zarbee’s cough syrup back in February when they were offering free samples for bloggers to review. At the time, TJ was in the midst of quite a coughing spree, and he couldn’t seem to shake it. Of course, by the time we received the samples, he’d gotten over it. About […]

Winner of the IVMS Contest Giveaway

I would like to thank everyone who tweeted for me in the IVMS contest. I ended up coming in second place, but we made a really good show of it! Random.org chose to award the prize to commenter #15 – Krista! She chose the hand soap, so I will be contacting her (right now) for her mailing address. […]

A Star Wars Clone Wars Birthday from Birthday Express

I had the opportunity to review some awesome birthday party supplies from Birthday Express. I was very willing to do it, but TJ’s birthday isn’t until August. But I had an idea… my husband Tom’s 30th birthday was April 4, so I could throw him a party! And that’s exactly what I did. I think […]

Join the Ultimate Blog Party 2009!

Furthermore? My comments section is no-followed, so no one got Google credit for the links anyways, despite claims otherwise. Have a […]

Why You Should Enter Blog Giveaways

I need to give a big shoutout to all of the great giveaway holders out there. I had never entered a blog giveaway before December. The first giveaway I ever entered was for a Pillsbury prize package… and I won! Since then, I’ve won four more – I just found out about two of them […]

Wal-Mart Picture Me: 0, JCPenney Portrait Studio: 1

I am never going back to the Picture Me Portrait Studio inside of Wal-Mart. I dislike Wal-Mart to begin with, but Tom reasoned with me that it was an independent studio that leases the space. Our mistake. We’d tried calling for an appointment at the Halfmoon NY store, but they never answered the phone. Since […]

Mommy Contests – Get Yourself a Hip-T

Act fast! There’s only about four hours left for this giveaway! Don’t you hate when your jeans ride down, and your shirts ride up, and you show off your panties and your stretch marks at the same time? I know I hate that. And I saw this contest on Twitter for this nifty little thing […]
