It's such a treat when you can take time out to pamper yourself a little bit. Even better when you can do so in a big way, which you could if you won this fabulous prize!!

TickleMe Plant Deluxe Greenhouse Kit for Kids Giveaway


I remember touching a plant like this in a greenhouse on a field trip when I was a kid. It must have been a big deal for me to still remember it, because I haven't been in grade school for a very long time. I can still remember what the inside of the greenhouse looked like, but the only plant I remember specifically is this kind! Wouldn't it be fun to win one?

$25 Gift Card Giveaway from HueTrition

This information is brought to you by HueTrition. All opinions are my own. 

I am all about finding what works to help make my son WANT to have a healthier diet. We have been making HUGE strides. He's come a long way, but it hasn't been easy (he was picker than I am, and I am very picky!). Happily, he's more and more about trying new foods and has decided he even likes a good number of veggies now (thank goodness!), so when it comes to a product or item that helps the littles become more aware and willing to invest in healthy eating, I am all in!

HueTrition makes it so easy and FUN to make nutritious choices for your whole family. They have many videos available to help you when meal planning.

You can also take virtual classes that will teach you how to make nutritious foods. Their next event is about the HueApproved Scanner! he easy and fun way to choose healthy food products: HueApproved Scanner Unveiling HueTrition Live Event on April 18, 4 - 5 PM (EDT)

Cash for Junk Cars and a Free Tow!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



There are two sides of the coin when it comes to junk cars. On one hand, as the owner, you may have dreams of fixing that baby up, restoring it, or getting it ready to gift to someone who doesn't have a car. Nine out of ten times though, junk cars sitting around the house are just never going to do anything but what they are doing right now. On the other hand though, while it may be something you get used to (seeing the wrecked or clunker car in your driveway or yard), it's probably not something the neighbors ever feel particularly delighted to see through their window or front door view. Junk cars can really bring down the feel of a home, block or neighborhood.

JunkCarMasters.com is a good place to call when you'd like to solve the problem and get the car out of your life, but still not have it be a total loss. They buy cars in any condition, even those that are wrecked or not running, and they pay cash, instantly and tow your car away for you too.

Spring Cleaning: Enter to #win a 6.5 lb. bag of Powerizer

This information is brought to you by Powerizer Complete. All opinions are my own.

I'm a big fan of Spring Cleaning. Up north, it was a clear sign that the cold was on its way out and better weather was on its way in. That was a big deal to all of us, and everything about that this time of year was pleasant. It made you feel alive just to go outside and see sunshine for the first time in months. That in turn, would lead you to throw open the windows when you got inside and get everything nice and clean.

$25 Visa Gift Card Giveaway: Non-Candy Easter Basket Favorites for Every Age!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Every year we pass out Easter Baskets to the kiddos around here, and oh how they love it so. It is a tradition! The one thing we have tweaked about this tradition though, is we no longer fill the baskets and Easter Eggs up with a lot of sugary junk and empty calorie treats like we used to do. I wasn't sure how well that would go over, considering the older kids, my son included, all remember the days of getting lots of chocolate and jelly beans. The fact is though, we fill the basket up with such cool items, that the kids cannot resist being thrilled with what they get and find. Of course, we take good care to make each holiday memorable, and though this portion of Easter is only part of the way we celebrate, we make sure it's still a lot of fun for the children in the family. One way to do that is with the Easter Basket. We make sure to select those that we know the kids are going to love. Personalized Gifts has a selection that is always a big hit and an instant way to make things special right from the get go!

Give Your Baby the Royal Treatment at Zulily

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


With Meghan Markle due with the newest royal baby, e-tailer Zulily thought you might like to know that they have everything YOU need for the Royal Baby in your life (that you can get while still staying on budget!). As some of you know, we have a new little one over here. She is not even a couple of weeks old yet, and she is doing wonderfully well. I do intend to post photos soon, and I appreciate the messages, e-mails and comments from those of you who have asked how she and my daughter are doing. All is well, and grandma (that would be me) is crazy in love with her newest little grandbabe. My kids make good kids (just sayin'). 💕

Luckybars are Great for National Nutrition Month (this month) and for Easter (next month!)

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Let's talk about what's in his hands! This child right here is a gem. I've said it time and time again. He's easy-going, smart and kind-hearted. He's also a very picky eater. It's my fault, I started off his youth catering to his eating wants, because I too am a picky eater, but then realized it was not a good path to have him on, and now we focus on his eating needs. His siblings all did and do love anything you put on their plate, so this was new for me. Both of us have branched out together, trying new things regularly (several times a week) so we can increase our choices of what we might like to eat, that is also good for us. I'm not going to lie, it was tough going at first, and still is at times, but we are dedicated. He is an athlete and I am getting up there in numbers (*ahem*) so we are both becoming more and more invested on what it is we are putting in our bodies. The one area we both still struggle in, is snacks! It's so easy to pick up a sugar-filled, or salty empty-calorie snack at the grocery store. We really have to slow down and concentrate, to bring home snacks that are going to serve more than one purpose. These Luckybars are a good choice!

This kid right here!! Have I mentioned how amazing he is? In addition to being absolutely chill, kind-hearted, smart and sweet, he's also so easy to entertain.

This is the Boy's Navy Rose Embroidered Striped Tee paired with their Boy's Black Twill Jogger pants and they are perfect for looking stylish while still being able to run around and play!

Perfect for Mother's Day! Versatile High Quality Epson Expression Premium XP-6000 All-in-One Printer

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Okay, let's talk about the Epson Expression Premium XP-6000, which you can pick up in places for $60 and under. I have been hesitant to get a printer inexpensively priced, but now that I have one, I wish I'd have gotten this one so much sooner. I can't speak for all brands that sell reasonably priced all-in-one printers, but this Epson is amazing. You can see some of the pictures I am printing above (coming out of the printer, on the side of it, and resting on top). The colors are vibrant, and I've saved a whole lot of money having my son take the pictures, and then printing them at home. And let me tell you, we're all so pleased with them. They came out every bit as beautiful as they would have in any portrait studio or store. In fact, I could easily and accurately say that this printer paid for itself the very first time we used it. Now lets talk about what it can do, and then I'll show you how some of those things turn out.

Apollo 11 The IMAX Experience Now Playing


I'm not sure how long this movie is going to be playing in theaters, but I know I want to see it, so we are making plans to get there ASAP. While my generation was very much into space, I'm not seeing that so much with the newer generation of kids, and what better way to pique their interest than through the big screen.
