CEREAL (YUM) - MOVIE NIGHT (FUN) - GIVEAWAY (YAY)



Everyone loves a good "family movie night" right?! Well, we are huge on family movie nights.. although we normally make this a home event in our family. However, the last time... we spent family movie night at the theaters. Too much fun for sure, we often forget how exciting that can be.

General Mills through BlogSpark sent us 4 tickets and 2 box's of cereal to enjoy... and we did just that. Right now General Mills is being very generous...

Starting in November, you can receive a free movie ticket when you purchase two specially marked packages of Big G cereals including Honey Nut Cheerios® (17 oz.), Cinnamon Toast Crunch® (17 oz.), Lucky Charms® (16 oz.), Trix® (14.8 oz) and Reese´s Puffs® cereal (18 oz.).

After purchasing two participating cereals, visit generalmills.com/moviecash to enter the unique code found inside each box of cereal and print your free Movie Cash certificate (good for one admission of up to a $12 value at participating theatres). To find a participating theater in your area, log onto http://emoviecash.com/dis_locator/.

It doesn't get much better than that!!! Great cereal (Lucky Charms - my fav- I'm such a kid, I know) and a free movie!!! I say it's time to stock up in this house. =)))

I have been asked to share a giveway with y'all... just leave me a comment on this post letting me know which cereals you plan on purchasing to earn e-movie cash. On monday I will draw and post the winner and have BlogSpark send out your "prize pack". How cool is that!!!

GAIN DISHING WASHING SOAP - GIVEAWAY


GAIN!! No, not the laundry soap, the dishwashing soap. I have used the laundry soap before, so I was super excited when I was recently given the chance to tryout and review Gain dishwashing soap given by Gain through MyBlogSpark.
I almost always use the dishwasher but having kids, you probably know sippy cups just don't do so great in the dishwasher, so I like to hand wash those along with larger pots and pans, etc. I am so funny about hand washing... I hate the way most dish washing soap makes my hands feel. I have to admit, I did not run into that problem with Gains dishwashing soap and I also love the smell... that was a big plus. I think most dishwashing soaps smell the same, and after smelling it for so long... it's not the best smell... Gain is totally different and I just loved that!!
In the package Gain sent over these 3 shirts to share with family and friends and I have already done so. The shirts were all the same and say I "heart" Gain. Love the "I heart..." y'all know that!! ;-)
I was also given 3 - $5 walmart gift cards to give away to y'all so you can tryout Gains new dishwashing soap. =)) To enter... visit Gain's website here and let me know which scent you would like to try, then come back and comment which one. (winners will all be different- one giftcard per winner). I will announce the winners on Monday December 6.
You do not have to have a blog to enter, comment as gues but be sure to leave your email.

LEOPARD PRINT REVIEW

Ok, so CSN Stores has contacted me to do a review. First I have to say that CSN Stores is simply amazing. Yes, honestly. It's all of my favorite stores put together... general items, toys, house appliences, etc. They have EVERYTHING.

I ended up doing a review on a SUPER cute LEOPARD print recliner for Bentley. FIRST, let me mention... I did pay EXTRA to review this product and it was defintely worth it. I have never seen anything like. Well, I take that back... I have seen many kids chairs, couches, etc. but nothing of this quality and PRINT. If you know me I love the animal print... yes, still. haha!!

I could not have been more happy with this purchase from CSN Stores. I am suppose to list any negatives but I really don't have any.

I was bummed when it says I would receive it in a week from the order date... BUT I was bouncing off the walls when it was delivered TWO days from placing the order. =)




Bentley was a little "iffy" about it at first. I could only imagine... how many cool chairs do you see like this.





But it didn't take long. It sits in our living room and she really enjoys drinking her "milk" in it. Not sure if I have ever mentioned or not but Bentley always lays down to drink her milk. Every time she drinks her sippy cup, etc. she has ALWAYS laid down. Always. Not because we made her, just her choice. So it's really nice... she climbs right on her cool little chair, reclines back, and drinks her milk. =) It's so cute. There is even a cup holder.

It is clearly a huge hit in our house. =) It's nice to know that Bentley will be able to "grow" with this chair. And there are so many other prints if your not a fan on leopard print.
And would you believe this BIG item had free shipping. I love free shipping!!! =)

GIVEAWAY THAT GIVES & SMELLS GOOD!!

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

First I need to mention that we are always on the hunt for the next best thing when it comes to smelling pretty in the house. Being a stay at home mom of three active children means smelling a million different smells throughout the day... and not always good. ha!! First we have Bryson and Brenna who are super active in sports... and Ryan usually coaches these teams... so between practices and games I have to stay on top of things just to clear the air. Bentley is no different... diaper duty usually doesn't smell so pleasent.

I have always been a huge candle lover... HUGE!!! But when there is a baby in the house, I worry... so I am forced to use other options... so I was thrilled when Febreze contacted me through MyBlogSpark to do a review/giveaway.

I have a gift card to give to one of you and I have tried out the below products.



I first tried out the above. I absolutely LOVE it. I like that it for one has lasted WEEKS... yes, I have been working on this review for weeks now... but I wanted to make sure I did give an accurate review. The smell is great and very strong and it has a modern look to it. I have tried wood diffusers before but they have never compared to this Febreze diffuser. The only negative thing I can say about this diffuser... well, it's not a negative about the diffuser... when you move it around be sure to pick it up from the bottom not the top of the wood or you will get oil on you. It doesn't leak, the wood is drenched in oil so a bit gets on your hands if touched. That's totally my fault and if I had common sense I would have known better. ha!!!

I did not think I would like this flameless luminary at all... I almost dread using it. I ended up LOVING it and it is now an addition to each room of ours. It's really neat... you turn the light on and after a while the light turns off automatically (love this). It looks like a real candle with the light flickering. The shade sets of the smell and it's also very strong. I tried the one above first... it was nice but too flowery for me. Smell is strictly personal preference though... I'm just not a fan of flowery smells unless it's the real thing. I also wasn't crazy about the design on the shade. Within a day I ended up changing it with a refill called Willow Blossom. MUCH MUCH better. It has a clean smell, almost like freshly cleaned laundry... love it!!! And the shade on it is white with some texture... it was very nice. I loved everything about it and that is exactly what you will find around my house.

I will be giving away a giftcard to Walmart so you can try these out yourself. But first I wanted to mention the following:

Summer Scents
Summer is almost upon us! It’s time to make your d├ęcor shine as brightly as the July sun. We can’t think of a better way to do that than with the Flameless Luminary™ or New No-Spill Diffuser from Febreze Home Collection. Both are beautifully designed and come in an array of scents. We’re sure you’ll love them both and want to share your thoughts with your readers.


Flameless Luminary
Turn heads with the soft flickering glow of a Flameless Luminary. Once you have a reusable base, changing scents is as easy as changing shades. It’s a refreshing update that you’ll want to share with your readers.


New No-Spill Wood Diffuser
When you live with children and pets, accidents happen. Luckily the No-Spill Diffuser with WoodWick® ambiance makes spills a thing of the past. Good looking and thoughtful, too — it’s exactly what you’ve been looking for.

Now to enter yourself in this $15 Walmart gift card giveaway!!!!

Simply leave me a comment letting me know which one you rather try. I will pick a random winner using random.org on Friday night and post the winner at that time!!! You might want to follow this (my review/giveaway) blog so you can quickly see if you are the winner!!!

CHD AWARENESS GIVEAWAY

THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED

I am offering this giveaway in hopes to raise awareness for CHD. As many of you know, I am a heart mom myself so CHD Awareness is close to my heart. (Meet my family here) I posted a giveaway last year for CHD Awareness and it was a huge success. Last year I gaveaway baby products, so this year... I thought I would go in a different direction... and give away something for everyone. I will be giving away a total of 4 products to 1 person. That's right... 1 person will receive ALL 4 of these. I know this post seems long, but it's super easy to enter!!! The giveaway will end Friday, so you only have 3 days to enter. Don't forget!!!

I will be giving away a set of brand new full size Twilight Woods Lotion, Twilight Woods Mist Spray, and Twilight Woods Bath Gel from Bath & Body Works. I received the lotion and mist spray as a gift during Christmas and I absolutely LOVE the smell. I think they might be my all time favorite sent. I think you will like it just as much as I do.
Along with the above... I will be giving away the below super cute blog design. It is a one of a kind, no one else will have this same design. It is compatible with blogger blogs. Not sure if you can see the details but it is a 3 column blog design and of course your blog information will be displayed in the post area, I only did that for an example. But you will receive this exact design.


So ONE person will win all FOUR of the above. There are several ways to enter, and you can enter more than once. The more you enter, the higher your chances are of winning. Here is how...


1. Leave a comment on this post.


2. Click here (my main blog) and leave a comment on that post. (If you know someone with a heart condition, I would love to hear about it on this post). Once you do that, come back here and leave another comment here letting me know you did so.


3. Post about the giveaway on your blog and link back to my blog http://www.youandmeplusthree.com/ so your readers can enter as well as read CHD facts for awareness. Once you do this, come back here... and leave a comment letting me know that you did so.


4. Go to http://www.youandmeplusthree.com/ and follow my blog then come back here and leave a comment and let me know that you are following. If you are already following, you already have 1 entry, just leave a comment below and let me know you are already following.


5. Add my blog button to your blog. (Blog button code can be found top right of this page) Then come back here to let me know that you have added it.


6. Twitter about the giveaway and link to http://www.youandmeplusthree.com/. Then come back here to leave a comment letting me know you tweeted about it.


So you can have a total of 6 entries if you do all of the above. Be sure after doing each to come back here and leave a comment for each time you entered. I will use random.org from the comments on this post, so it is important you come back here and comment for each entry. For example.. if you do 3 of the above.. you will leave me 3 different comments below. If you do all 6 of the above.. you will leave me 6 different comments below, etc. I know this probably sounds confusing, but it's not. It's really simple... and if you have any questions please email me and ask!!! Be sure, when commenting below to leave your address or blog url so I can contact you if you are the winner.


I will announce the winner Friday evenning. You can enter the giveaway up until the winner is posted. Once the winner is posted, the giveaway will be closed.


My main goal is to help spread the word of CHD, the giveaway is just to add a little fun. CHD so common, yet so unknown. Many people think once the heart surgery is over the defect is healed and they will never look back. NOT TRUE. CHD is a life long condition... these babies live with heart issues for the rest of their lives. These heart families live with heart issues for the rest of their lives. Open heart surgery does not heal their hearts, they will never function like a normal heart which is why they are monitored on a normal basis for the rest of their lives. We have been very blessed during our heart journey, we are so grateful for this. We can only hope and pray that Bentley's heart journey will continue to be good. The future is scary for heart parents to think about. It is unpredictable. Because of CHD research most of these babies are able to live a long and normal life and that is why it is so important to help spread the word. More research means more help for these children and better futures they will have. With that said, there are many fighting for their lives right now, too many.

Thanks for reading & thank you for help spreading the word of CHD!!!
