$100 Target Gift Card #Giveaway

I am excited to bring a gift card giveaway to you, in collaboration with another group of wonderful bloggers. We used to have a Target close to our home and I would walk over and browse (and usually come home with something 😍). When we moved, Target became a little bit of a drive, and certainly not walkable, so we ended up not going so often. The one time of year I always go though, is during the holiday season. They go all out with their holiday decorations and have some of the best edible seasonal goodies around. We find all kinds of treats and yummies to share with family and friends there. If you share my love of Target, you're going to appreciate the giveaway below.

Harry Potter Quilled and Game of Thrones Pop-up Card #Giveaway

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


It's hard for me to pick a favorite superhero because quite frankly, I love them all (well, most of them). I do have to say I have an affinity towards Wonder Woman though. She's pretty amazing and so was the blockbuster movie. So if I were to pick a hero for a candle to display in the house, it would definitely be her. This gorgeous tin holds a scented candle made of palm and paraffin wax and is sold at Insight Luminaries, where you can find awesome pop-culture candles in all shapes and sizes!

I'm not sure what it is about little smooshy items, but I am certain my son, my granddaughter, my daughter (who is 19) and my students are all in on the craze. What better way to surprise them than putting Smooshy Mushy or Smashy Mashy items in their stocking?!

Keep Olbas Natural Herbal Remedy Products on Hand for Fall and Winter

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


Whatever it is you're looking for when it comes to taking care of a cold, Olbas has taken it upon themselves to help. Menthol lozenges are important to keep on hand this time of year, because with the change in weather, you know you're going to need them at some point. Herbal cough drops are a good alternative if you're not into the big burst of menthol (for the record, I like both). And Olba Oil keeps the momentum of symptom relief going as an inhalant (add some to a tissue or handkerchief), helping to keep nasal passages clear and minds refreshed. It can also be used as a massage oil.

Oversized Bamboo Hooded Baby Towel Set #Giveaway

Disclosure: I am participating in the promotion of this giveaway that is generously hosted by Saving you Dinero. No product or compensation was provided to participate.


When my new grandbabe gets here I'll be looking for Bamboo items for her. It's a material that just gets softer and softer each time you use it. so how could I resist? Saving you Dinero is hosting a giveaway for a lovely infant towel gift set that is made of Bamboo, and it's from SmitCo. I've shopped with that company before and was very pleased with the quality of their products.

$200 Walmart Gift Card #Giveaway

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



We spend a lot of time at Walmart this time of year. Seems like there's always good deals to be found, and with so many people on our shopping list, shopping at a savings matters. If you win this giveaway, you can stretch those bucks further too because $200 can really go a long way at Walmart.

Celebrate with Zulily: November is National Family Literacy Month

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



November is National Family Literacy Month, and while your child may have a ton of books he/she can read (I know mine do, and I am thankful!) many children may not have the opportunity to experience the magic of books. Zulily wants to help, and for the month of November they have teamed up with publisher Penguin Random House and nonprofit First Book to help provide books to children in need all across the United States. What better time to form such an alliance, as it is the season of giving?!

The event runs November 1 - December 12, 2018. Special sales will be launched during the campaign and will feature a curated selection of children's books. Every book that also has the "BUY 1, GIVE 1" badge will trigger a new children's book donation, up to 100,000 books from Penguin Random House to First Book.

In addition to that, there will be various times when shoppers can visit Zulily's social media channels and engage with comments and likes to help spark the 'Buy One Give One Campaign.'


So many of the books that have the 'Buy 1, Give 1' badge are available, that you are sure to find one or more that you would love to have and simultaneously gift to another child as well. Classic favorites like Corduroy, Dr. Suess, and Sesame Street are on there. So are newer favorites like My Little Pony (oh my goodness, how my granddaughter loves those books!). Sales are continuously running, so be sure to check out the Zulily website and see what might have currently gone on sale at the moment...but you have to hurry (and check back often) because each sale only runs a limited amount of time. 

This is the kind of initiative that I can really get behind and support. Having fostered a love of reading in all 4 of my children, since they were very little, I understand the importance and impact that kind of gift can have on their life. If you appreciate companies showing this kind of support as well, head on over to the Zulily website. Take a look at what they have to offer, and don't forget to visit their social media sites periodically as well. Surely a child will thank you, whether you know it or not...and that's always the best kind of giving.

Holiday Vacation Time Coming up Soon? Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort is PERFECT for Families!

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



Just a few hours of driving is perfect to keep you close enough to home, but still far enough away that it feels like a mini-vacation. Cocoa Beach is not that far from us. It's a nice little area known for beach time and surfing. We had never been, and decided it was time to remedy that, so we packed up our car and headed straight to the Westgate Cocoa Beach Resort.

If you're looking for a resort that has a traditional pool (7ft in the deep end!), a jacuzzi, a water park for the smaller kids, a lazy river (yes, I did say a lazy river) all by itself (so fun!) AND all-night access to the private beach, then this is the place for you too. I had heard prior to our visit that Cocoa Beach resorts really have it going on; this one was the perfect introduction for us to prove that rumor to be true.

2 New Adventure Force Blasters Kids Really Enjoy! #Giveaway

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



The sun was a little harsh as far as casting shadows goes, but the weather was otherwise perfect, and there was no way we were going home, we had two new Adventure Force toys to review! The design, the height/distance the darts can go, and all of the considerate features made this my son's favorite duo to date from Dart Zone (a company he has loved for awhile now).

In Courage Devotional Bible for Women #Giveaway

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


I think a great gift to offer someone during the holiday season is a Bible. Those who read regularly will appreciate a different format (different Bibles serve different purposes), and those who don't read might be encouraged to do so if they have the good book in their home. I already have a devotional Bible that I love, so I gave this one to my son-in-law, who will be gifting it to his mother or grandmother for the holidays.

A Perfect Stocking Stuffer: The Legacy Letters with #Giveaway!

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


This award winning book, The Legacy of Letters by Carew Papritz is the kind of book you can become emotionally involved in while reading. It's just a small, little book but it really packs a powerful punch. 40 letters a father wrote throughout his life to his family are included and they will resonate with the readers through and through. I've read through mine once, and I fully intend to pick the book up and go through them yet again.

Reindeer in Here: A New Christmas Tradition for Kids

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


A friend that arrives on Dec. 1st each year, and goes back to the North Pole on Christmas Eve.
Meet Reindeer in Here. Your friend arrives on December 1st each year, and returns home (to Santa Clause at the North Pole) on Christmas Eve. It includes both a book and a lovable reindeer plush who has one antler shorter than the other. This will help reinforce the message that different is normal, and every 'child' is special. The set was introduced in December 2017, and sold out entirely on Amazon (#1 Best Seller and #1 New Release). It also won 9 awards in under 1 year. So what makes it so special?

GrabPoints: A Survey Site for All Ages

This is a guest post. I am happy to welcome GrabPoints on the blog today!


GrabPoints: A Survey Site for All Ages

I’ve heard some people say that GPT and survey sites are only for millennials, especially those looking to make a quick buck for extra pocket money. I beg to disagree. I am not a millennial, and I actually know of several retired people who have turned to online rewards sites as sources of passive income. While the platform may seem innovative and new, the method of earning rewards by doing surveys and other simple tasks is a time-honored one.

There are so many survey sites out there that, for the most part, it seems like a simple matter of choosing which one works best for your schedule and other personal criteria of a useful rewards site. On my part, I would like to present GrabPoints as a legit survey site that actually works for people of all ages looking for ways to earn online. In this article, I aim to thoroughly describe what makes it appealing and effective for users, regardless of their age.

Jackson Galaxy Constellation Cat Scratcher #Giveaway

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


What's a holiday without a gift for everyone...including the pets?!

We spent a decent amount of money on only the best of the best for our cat when we got her. It was our hope that she would find her new home comfortable, and that she would fall in love with us, just as we instantly had with her. Well, fast forward to now, and we've found that she has indeed become very fond of us, especially the boy (she likes my granddaughter a lot too), but the items we bought for her, meh...she can take them or leave them. Some of them, like her bed, she has just decided that 'leave them' works best, lol. The two exceptions she makes, are a). she uses the cat litter box we got her (thank goodness!) as long as the swinging door is off, and she uses her cat tower (as a scratching post and a climbing device to sit upon and watch what's going on outside (she rarely uses the cubbies on it though). So... we know she likes a scratching post.
