Girl Scout Cookie Giveaway

The time has finally come, my daughter is old enough to sell Girl Scout cookies. I was a Brownie once too, infact my uniform fits my daughter perfectly, she recently wore it in a local parade. I have memories of thin mints in the freezer and calling family on the telephone asking them to help me reach my goal so I could earn a prize. I'm sure the top prize was nothing like the one's they have now (iPad).  Today they even have a Cookie App Finder, (Android ver) yep an app that helps connect you to your next box of thin mints. But you gotta hurry COOKIE SALES END THIS SUNDAY 3/9. Just as my mom did back in day we stock up the freezer knowing that the middle of summer I am going to crave a frozen thin mint. To this day I prefer to eat all my mints ...

Holiday Inspired by Minted #GIVEAWAY

Next weekend marks the end of Daylight Savings Time and the beginning of the holiday season. I know, I'm with you, seriously how can that be? I'm still squeezing out the last few crops from our vine tomatoes, while we enjoy days over 80 degrees. My kids will be broiling as I pose them in their winters best because come hell or high water I WILL get my cards completed before Thanksgiving. This year I'm looking to Minted to make that happen, between their Pinterest boards and their design blog Julep I think I can actually pull this holiday thing off. One thing I really like about Minted is that you can upload your photo so you have a quick look at each design using your actual photo. It really helps you see wether your photo will work within each card design. In addition to 32+ pages of card designs,  there are entire sections filled ...

Polaroid 300 Camera Giveaway {Closed}

It's been awhile since our last giveaway and I have been so enamoured with Polaroid cameras lately I thought let's GIVE ONE AWAY! How does that sound? This time we are going to give one lucky winner a Brand New POLAROID 300 Camera and 2 packs of Polaroid 300 film! One of the things I brought to BlogHer a couple weeks ago was my Polaroid camera. I have a Mio I found used on eBay years ago because I thought my kids would enjoy the instant gratification of it all. I quickly realized that this was an expensive toy at .70 a photo for my kids so I repossessed it. I will say that via eBay or Amazon you can find better prices by buying Fuji Instax film in bulk. Instax mini works in Polaroid cameras, including the Mio and the Polaroid 300 and vice versa (the 300 film works in Instax cameras).     9th ...

Feel Your Boobies

Did I get your attention with the word boobies? Good. We all need a reminder once and awhile.  One thing that happens to all of us when we are busy is we forget to do things like... go to your daughter's open house (yep I missed this one), pay the AMEX bill (yep this too), tell your husband the IRS agents visit was rescheduled (guilty) and other things that can be life changing like feeling your boobies. I had planned to write about Breast Cancer for so many reasons. September always reminds me of pink ribbons, lost friends and the strong support of the sisterhood. And as I sat down to write this story I realized something. I could not remember the last time I felt my boobies! How did that happen? How could I have forgotten this little act of self love and I mean that in the most non-sexual way people although ...
