Kashi Giveaway!

I'm having another great giveaway! The nice people at Moms Meet and Kashi sent me some of their new Kashi Chocolate Soft-Baked Squares to try. My kids really like them! The texture is just like that of an ordinary brownie. They have a rich, chocolatey taste, but the first two ingredients are organic whole wheat flour and sweet potatoes. So, I can give them to the kids as a snack or treat and not feel guilty about it! (Side note: I really hope Jack's teacher has noticed that they are Kashi snacks, and doesn't think I've been sending regular old brownies as a "healthy morning snack."!!!) They also contain black beans, omega-3s, fiber, and a whole bunch of other good stuff.

My family has really enjoyed them. And Kashi and Moms Meet want to give you a chance to enjoy them, too! All you need to do is follow the blog, and leave a comment saying you want to win (and your email address so I can contact you if you win.) One lucky winner will get two coupons, each good for one free Kashi Product of their choice, and a Kashi lunch tote. (This prize will ship directly from Kashi, so I'm not 100% sure when you will receive it.) This giveaway is open to U.S. residents only. I will be choosing the winner on Saturday, September 22. Good luck!!!

Now here's some legal stuff: I received this product for free from the sponsor
of the Moms MeetSM program, May Media Group LLC, who received it directly from the manufacturer. As a Moms MeetSM blogger, I agreed to use this product and post my opinion on my blog. My opinions do not necessarily reflect the opinions of May Media Group LLC or the manufacturer of the product.

Soft Scrub Giveaway!

I don't think it's a secret that I don't enjoy cleaning. So, anything that makes that easier gets a thumbs up in my book. Recently, the nice people at Purex sent me a couple of bottles of new Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Cleaner and Total Bath and Bowl cleaners. The all purpose cleaner has, as it's name implies, multiple uses, primarily in the kitchen and bathroom. The bath cleaner works for pretty much everything in the bathroom. I am really liking these cleaners. The scent is fresh and not overwhelmingly chemical-ly smelling, even the ones that contain bleach. The spray bottles have different settings for different jobs. There is a regular spray setting, and also a foam setting. It turns the regular liquid into a thick foam that is perfect for tough stains. The foam stays in place and attacks the stain. Also, the bottle sprays perfectly when held upside down, which, combined with the foam, makes it great for cleaning toliets. (I tried it, and it really worked!)

Now the good news for you! I have three coupons good for one free bottle of the new cleaner of your choice! All you have to do to enter is follow the blog and leave a comment saying you want to win. (If I don't personally know you, please leave your email address in your comment so I can contact you if you win.) I will draw three winners on Saturday, September 22. This contest is open to U.S. residents only. Good luck!

Soft Scrub is having a sweepstakes right now, too! Click here to enter for a chance to win $1000 and other great prizes!

P.S. I hope to have another giveaway up tomorrow, so check back for that!

Back to School!

All three kids have been back in school for a few weeks! Jack for like 3 weeks, and the little kids for about 2 weeks. It has taken me a long time to finally write about it!

Jack is in second grade this year. He is really enjoying it. He loves science and library. He knew a few kids from last year and has already made a few new friends :) This is his second year at this school, so he feels like an old pro!
Here are some pictures of my big kid on the first day!

Harry is back with the same class and wonderful teachers he's been with since turning three. This is his last year before kindergarten, and I will admit, I got a little teary when I realized that he is one of the oldest kids in the class this year. (Only two other kids returned from last year.) It seems like just yesterday, I was taking my tiny three year old to a class full of big kids. Now he is one of the big kids! Crazy! It has been a bit of an adjustment for him this year. His bff/wife (they got married at Pizza Hut last year ;) is a year older than him, and is in kidergarten this year. He has been in the same class as Ave for the past two years, and was pretty sad when he realized she wouldn't be there this year. Also, being back at school increases his chances of getting ill. So, if you could keep him staying healthy in your prayers, we would really aprreciate it. :) Especially for strep throat (which is what started everything,) and pinkeye (that poor kid's eyes just can't handle any more problems!)

Addie is back at school too! She went for the fall semester last year, but took a sabatical for the spring to work on her book. (Or, she was too young for the spring program.) She is going three days a week and loving it! They have an observation room that allows me to sneak a peek without her knowing. I've watched a few times. It is fun to see how she plays and interacts with other kids when I'm not around. Plus, with her in school, that means I have five and a half kid free hours each week (but who's counting?) And, at least one of those days, Cory will have off! The first week all the kids were in school, we went out to breakfast one day! Without kids! Like a date! Awesome!

Hopefully, with my kid free time, I will get two giveaways up in the next few days. So, check back for those!
