Discount Coupon Code for SOMASIX Magnetic Letters and Numbers

magnets Recently I was fortunate enough to get the SOMASIX Magnetic Letters and Numbers – Educational Refrigerator Magnet Set for Kids 62 Pieces at a deeply discounted rate and let me tell you, I’m officially in love with these things. My kiddo and I spents hours just having fun with them – and competing to see who could form more words out of the letters than the other person. We had a blast.

There is really nothing NOT to love about these magnetic letters and numbers other than the fact that I wish they came in a resealable bag for easier storage when they aren’t up on the fridge BUT other than that, your kids will absolutely love them and YOU will love them too! I promise you that – and hey, you can grab a set from amazon right now for 20% using this discount coupon code: OYQD7CZ5

Kung Fu Panda 3 Review

Three weeks ago my boy and I were lucky enough to score an invite to the advance screening of Kung Fu Panda 3 which opens in cinemas TODAY – Jan 29th, 2016 and below I have 5 reasons as to why YOU should go see this awesome movie!


1. It’s as good as the first two (although my son swears its better than the first 2)
2. The story is so much deeper and warmer than in the first 2.
3. The old faves are back – Tigress, Monkey, Viper, Crane, Mantis and of course Shifu
4. The kids will love it and so will you, its really a movie for everyone
5. It has valuable nuggets of wisdom like “Your real strength comes from being the best you can be.”

Kung Fu Panda 3 definitely gets two big thumbs up from me!
Hit me up on Twitter or Facebook and let me know what you think about the movie!!

And before you head out, enjoy the official Kung Fu Panda 3 trailer

Meet Dierks Bentley Courtesy of the “All Access Black Ticket” Sweepstakes

I Hold On.
That’s my favorite Dierks Bentley song.
It makes me cry every. single. time.
No kidding.
Another fave of mine is My Last Name.
And when I want to turn up, I know I can count on What was I Thinking to really get me going.
Most people I ask to name a fave DB song seem to always say Drunk On a Plane.

What is YOUR favorite Dierks Bentley song?
How would you like to see him perform it live?
How would you like to MEET him in person (and maybe convince him to sing a few bars for you one on one?) ?
Maybe you can even sweet talk him into letting you play his guitar for a while.
Okay, maybe that’s pushing your luck but you see where I’m going with this, right?
If you’re the biggest Dierks Bentley fan, the “All Access Black Ticket” sweepstakes was created with you in mind and you can score an all expenses paid trip to his concert in NJ and a meet and win by either purchasing his new album or by sending in an entry by mail — dets below:

Eligible participants who do not make a purchase can enter by mail by hand printing on a 3”x 5” card, their name, address (including zip code), telephone number and e-mail address and mailing the card in a business size envelope to:

2016 Buick GMC National Sweepstakes

I’m doing a happy dance right now.
School is back in session which means freedom.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my kiddo. Love hanging out with him and doing stuff with him BUT I also love my me time.
School being back in session means I can read an entire magazine without being interrupted every hour or so.
I can watch back to back episodes of NCIS LA without pausing every 30 minutes because he has a question.
I could also take a quick road trip if I wanted to and if I had a 2016 GMC to take for a spin, you bet I wouldn’t be here typing this out but since I don’t have one and school lets out at 2:30pm anyway, that road trip will have to wait for another day. You know what can’t wait? This new sweepstake from General Motors where you can snag yourself a 2017 Buick or GMC vehicle.Pretty sweet, right?
You can enter at events, online or via mail and if you choose the latter, this is the info you need:

Mail a 3” by 5” piece of paper, on which you have hand printed your name, address, email address, and the words “The 2016 Buick GMC National Sweepstakes” to

PO Box 210459,

Western Union “My WU Calling” Sweepstakes

Three years ago I met a man and met his dog.
I’m scared of dogs and this one was the biggest chocolate lab ever.
I fell in love with both.
This past weekend the dog died.
A heartbroken emoji somehow doesn’t seem enough to express this loss.
I never in a million years imagined I would feel this intense sense of loss over a dog.
And yet I do.
The void left in our lives is deep and real.
Maybe if I blog about it,it won’t hurt as much.
So there.

But,this post isn’t all about dead furry family members, its also about the Western Union “My WU Calling” Sweepstakes.

Happy Birthday to Me!


My favorite day of the year is here.

September 13th.

Today I turn the big 3-5.

I’m that much closer to 40 and to be honest, that’s kinda making me freak out a little.

But overall, I feel blessed to have the life I have.

I feel happy and optimistic about my choices.

I feel genuine excitement about my future.

I feel grateful that I’ve had 34 fantastic years already – and I can’t wait to see what the next 34 years bring.

So Happy Birthday to Me!

Cheap PCB Prototypes

I’m technologically challenged but I speak cheap fluently and thankfully so does Quick Turn Protos, a company that is staffed with really techy-savvy people who happen to speak cheap as well as I do. They specialize in manufacturing cheap PCB prototypes and will even give you an instant quote on a 2 layer PCB prototype if you simply ask for one.

While you chow down on that tidbit, here’s another – they are 100% U.S based and unlike most companies out there, they don’t have minimum and maximum order limits but they do have stunningly rapid turn around on printed circuit board orders so the next time you’re on the market for high quality PCB prototypes that are gentle on your wallet, look no further than!

Victoria’s Secret Angel Card Sweepstakes

I was about 24 when I finally discovered Victoria’s Secret.
I was a late bloomer.
Don’t judge me – or judge me but accept me anyway.
Anyway, to say I’m obsessed with some of their stuff would be putting it mildly (hello boy shorts!).
Of course in my mind, when I wear VS stuff, I’m convinced I’m suddenly a Victoria’s Secret Angel.
Except I look way hotter than them, in my mind (and if my best half values his life,he better agree!)
There is something about their lingerie and outfits that honestly, instantly makes me feel good and confident so naturally I keep drifting toward their shop at the mall especially when they have a good sale.

But you don’t have to wait for them to have a sale to snag some cool bras, panties or outfits for yourself or the lady in your life. You can just enter the Victoria’s Secret Angel Card Sweepstakes – and you don’t even have to be a card holder to enter but trust me, there are certain perks to being a card holder so that’s something you may want to consider.
