$25 Shutterfly Gift Code Giveaway from Whitepages.com #WPMailer

I am on the ball this year and actually have my kids' holiday cards all ready to write out and address.  Getting the kids dressed up and waiting forever at the portrait studio was the easy part, though.  Now I have to sit down and write out a little note to all of my friends and family.  And once THAT is done comes my least favorite part of all: Addressing the envelopes!  Oh, how I detest writing everyone's addresses on those envelopes!  I am sure I could be organized and put everything in a spread sheet to print on my printer but that seems … [Read more...]

A Diary’s House Exerpt and Kindle Fire Giveaway!

A Sweet Divide Suddenly the barn door bolted open and out it spat a whole slew of people; workers and families who were near to retire for the evening. I knew the hour was waning deeper into the night and many would be leaving soon. Annabelle spun to observe them and she returned; her expression so matching mine that our time together was soon to end. Annabelle and I talked further; of the things we loved and endeared ourselves to; the joys to our lives and what we wanted most from them. We shared a laugh or two, and some thoughtful stares … [Read more...]

Book Give Away: Hot and Fast: Sexy, Spontaneous Quickies for Passionate Orgasms

Okay, we are all grownups here, right?  (Those who aren't need to get off the computer and get back to your homework!)  Being grownups, we are all familiar with our bodies, how they work, sex, orgasms and all those other hush hush topics  we don't usually talk about on our blogs. Sex happens.  Some people wish it happened more (or less!), or wish they had just a tad bit more passion in their lives.  Without giving you TMI, I can certainly say the my husband and I were a lot more adventurous and passionate when we were younger.  16 years of … [Read more...]

Enter to #win a Passion Creek prize pack w/ $100 Amazon gift card

  Passion Creek by Avery Flynn Uptight history professor Sam Layton may have the abs of a movie action hero, but he stopped believing in the joy of adventure a long time ago. However, when a one-night stand with a tattooed bombshell leads to a treasure map for the long-buried Rebecca’s Bounty, the call to action is too strong to ignore. All Las Vegas cocktail waitress Josie Winarsky wants to do is paint.

Rubbermaid LunchBlox Sandwich Kit for easy back to school lunches!

School is back in session for my kids and that means I am up early every morning making them healthy lunches to bring with them.  I absolutely detest our school lunch program and there are very few things my kids actually think taste good from the cafeteria.  Reheated corn dogs and canned peas might be a federally approved lunch but it doesn't pass MY nutrition guidelines at all!  I pack their lunches in reusable containers whenever I can, both for the benefit to the environment and the fact that it is a lot cheaper in the long run.  Little … [Read more...]

Make Something Astrobright for a chance to win! #goastrobrights

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Astrobrights Papers by Neenah Paper for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. Every year when the kids head back to school we are presented with a long list of school supplies to purchase for our child, the teacher and the classroom.  The list includes the basics like pens and pencils, some technology items like calculators and headphones, and the teachers always ask for a ream of copy paper to make flyers and handouts.  And they always specify ‘bright colors please!’…because white … [Read more...]

Save at Famous Footwear with a Buy One Get One Half Off sale

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. My kids started back to school on Monday so last Saturday I had the pleasure of taking them shoe shopping.  I really think that there is a level of hell where people are forced to shop for  shoes with their children all day!  Honestly, that was our first errand of the day and I was about to throw in the towel and go home to take a nap!  Or a drink!  The crowds were insane, there were stray children running hither and yon and of … [Read more...]

SAVE with the San Antonio Vacation Experience!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of SAVE for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. When my husband and I lived in Houston, we loved taking a few days once in a while to see the sites.  Seeing as he was a grad student and we weren't exactly rolling in money, everything we did had to be done as cheaply as possible!  If there was a coupon code or discount available for a hotel or attraction, I would find it.  I loved traveling but couldn't just throw money around left and right!  Well, if you are interested in seeing some … [Read more...]
