Remember a few weeks ago when I did this Purex review? Well, last week, they sent me some coupons for FREE products to use for a giveaway! There will be four winners total. Two people will win a coupon for a free full sized package of Purex Triple Action Laundry Detergent, and two people will win a coupon for a free full sized package of Purex Ultra Packs. Yay!!! To enter, as always, follow the blog and leave a comment saying you want to win! I will draw the winners one week from today, Friday, February 17, using random.org. Good Luck!
P.S. If you can't wait to try the new products go here to get a free sample of Purex Triple Action. (They will be giving away free samples of the action packs in a few weeks. You can only get one or the other, so if you want the action packs, don't request the Triple Action detergent!)

For the past few days, Jack, who wants to celebrate everything, has been asking what our big plans were for celebrating Groundhog Day. (Seriously, two days ago, he asked how we were going to celebrate it being the last day of January.) My reply that we would read Ten Grouchy Groundhogs did not impress him. (Side note: Why is it that I happened upon the groundhog book 148 times in the weeks before today, but couldn't find it anywhere when we actually needed it? I ended up stealing an extra copy from the box o books that are meant to be gifts. Oh well!) So to make it seem more of an occasion, the boys and I decided to make groundhog cupcakes. We have a family of groundhogs living near our backyard, two parents and their ten, yes ten, offspring. So, step one for groundhog cupcakes was setting out the groundhog traps. Just kidding! The part about the groundhog family living near us was true, but, instead, we tried these Fun-da-middles cupcakes that I got for a crazy good deal at the salvage store. Jack has been begging me to make them, so it seemed like the perfect occasion. Harry and Jack helped bake and decorate the treats, and nothing makes it seem like a party like cake, right? So here's to six more weeks of winter and having a party just because you can! Now I need to get the kids to bed so Cory and I can enjoy some Bill Murray goodness that I forgot that I bought at a yard sale a few months ago :)
