Get 4 Free Children's Songs from Kenny Loggins


A couple of weeks ago I was sent a copy of the new Kenny Loggins cd, All Join In, from the One2One network.  I’m not a huge Kenny Loggins fan myself, but since my kids both love listening to music, I thought I’d give it a chance.  I was pleasantly surprised when I turned it on.  There are some great songs on All Join In, including old favorites like “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”, and some new material from Kenny as well.  The kids really enjoyed the album and I have to say it was pretty good from an adult perspective as well.

Want to hear it yourself?  Walt Disney Records and Kenny Loggins are offering up four free MP3s from the album in exchange for answering a short survey.  To get your four free downloads, follow these simple instructions:

1) Go to
and listen to the 4 songs on the music player. (I couldn’t get the player to open in Firefox, so you may need to try a different browser if it doesn’t show up. It seems to work fine in IE)
2) Answer the survey questions listed on the site.
3) Make sure to leave a valid e-mail address and you will be sent a link to download your 4 free MP3s.

Custom Greeting Cards Giveaway from

One of the best ways to let someone know you’re thinking of them is to send them a greeting card. Maybe it’s their birthday, graduation, a special holiday, or just to let them know you miss them. No matter what the occasion, a greeting card from a friend with a special note inside is bound to cheer the recipient up.  Hey, everyone loves getting mail when there isn’t a bill inside, right?

But what do they do with that card after the 30 seconds or so that it took to read it? They might set it up on the table for a while where they’ll see it when they pass by. Eventually they’re going to tuck it away in a drawer, stick it in a pile of other papers where it will be lost for eternity (wait, is that only me?), or maybe even toss it in the trash. They may remember the sentiment, but let’s face it – that card will probably never be seen again.

So how do you make your cards stand out? How do you make your card the unforgettable one that doesn’t get pushed aside or tossed in the trash? Make your own custom greeting cards of course!  You can use your own design, logo, or photo to make your greeting card an original. And guess what? The ones with photos on the front are the ones I always keep!

Custom printed cards can be used for thank you notes, invitations, sending holiday greetings, or just to let loved ones know you care.  I personally love sending custom postcards for my kids’ birthday party invitations.  They are so much nicer than the generic ones you pick up at the store, and are also a wonderful keepsake for the baby books.


What would you use custom cards for?  Does this sound like something you’d like to do?  I hope so, because wants to give two (2!) of my awesome readers a set of 250 custom greeting cards!  Two winners will receive the following:

250 7 x 5″ Greeting Cards (Half-Fold); 10 pt Cover with matte or gloss Coating

Full Color Outside and Blank Inside (4/0)

Winners must be willing to pay shipping for their cards and they will be shipped within the U.S. only.  Even with paying shipping this is an incredible deal!

Bon Bon Cupcakes Review and Giveaway

This contest has now ended

Nearly a year ago, maybe more, I was searching for some local people to follow on Twitter. One of the names I came across was Bon BonCupcakes and I simply had to check it out.  With a name like that you have to be curious, right?  I followed the link to her web site and found the cutest leggings I’ve ever seen! I wanted to buy some right then and there, but stopped myself before my clicker finger got too happy.  Quite honestly, I stopped myself because of the price.  Considering Evie would be growing like crazy during her first year, I decided it would be better to wait until she was just a little bit bigger and could wear the leggings longer.

IMG_8495Well, lucky for me, the ladies at Bon Bon Cupcakes were gracious enough to send me a sample of their adorable leggings to try out on Evie.  And let me tell you, they are just as cute in person as the pictures on the web site.  The leggings come rolled up in the shape of a cupcake and in a clear cupcake box.  Also included is a “recipe card” for the leggings with the story of how Bon Bon Cupcakes was started by Marianne Cascone and Erin Cascone, two stay-at-home moms, on the back.

The leggings are made of a thick (but not too thick) microfiber material that is much more sturdy than most of the other tights my daughter has.  She was still crawling when we first tried them out, so she really tested the durability.  The ribbon ruffles around the bottom are adorable and stayed attached even with my daughter pulling and tugging on them.  They have been through the washer and dryer several times now and still look just like they did the day we opened the package.  Considering how well they hold up, I would say they are definitely worth the price.

IMG_8489Since Evie was just on the upper end of the 9-18 month size, I requested the 2-4T so she would have a little room to grow.  Even buying her a size up, it seemed like the sizing runs just a little bit small.  I would have expected a 2-4T to be just a little big on her since she was wearing 18 month size clothing, but they actually fit her just right.  I’m pretty sure they won’t make it up to a 4T size on her.  They are very stretchy, but were a bit tight around her belly.

Besides the adorable leggings, I love that BonBon Cupcakes is a local company and that it all started with a mom who was simply trying to come up with something to cover her daughter’s diaper.  Other moms of daughters can certainly commiserate with this.  I know I’ve been there!

Because I Don't Have Enough to Do

I’m sure it won’t be a big surprise to anyone who knows me, but I have a new blog (Hey, I saw those eyes rolling!). Yes, I know I can barely keep up with the ones I already have. It is a new blog, but really it is just an extension of this one. You see, I’m being a follower and starting up a review blog just like 97% of all the other bloggers out there.

I gave this a lot of thought and have actually had it in the back of my mind for a really long time. Recently I’ve had several opportunities to review and/or give away products that I’ve had to turn down because I didn’t have a place I felt comfortable posting it. I really didn’t want it to be a part of my main blog because I’m not really sure how long I’ll keep up with it plus there are some restrictions with the BlogHer ads that I have here.

The solution to that was to set up an entirely separate page to post reviews and giveaways. I hope to do reviews of things I’ve purchased myself and if I’m lucky I’ll get a few things to review for free. I also hope to be able to give away some fun stuff to my readers.

So, please go check out my first post and if you feel so inclined, enter the contest to win a Wonder Wash and Mini Spin Dryer.  Don’t forget to subscribe by RSS or E-mail while you’re there so you don’t miss out on any future contests!

And now, since you’ve read all the way to then end (or at least skimmed this far) you get rewarded with cute kid pictures!
