I run across lots of giveaways while reading the blogs of other moms. I also come across good advice for saving money, plus great tips on parenting. I don't enter all the giveaways I read about because I don't need many of the prizes. I would rather pass the chance to win to someone who really needs the item. When I read about this great giveaway, I just couldn't pass it by. The product is a very portable sort of exersaucer/jumper. It is lightweight, wipes down easily, and can be taken anywere! Read about it here:

So for a chance to win this great item, go on over to Barefoot Mommy at:
Good luck!

Do you love Amazon as much as I do?

Every Christmas I place at least three hefty orders with Amazon. I
love to give books as presents. I also like to give movies on DVD because
I know that most members of my family miss the movies when they are on at the theaters.
But Amazon has much, much more than books and movies. They have, well basically everything!

If you want to try to win a $25 gift card to Amazon, go on over to Debateur
Debates. If you don't want to enter the contest, read the comments. It's worth it.

another great giveaway

Here's a great new giveaway over at Nickels N Dimes. The prize
is $100 worth of Estee Lauder products. Wouldn't that be a nice
treat for a mom who spends her days looking after others?
Here's the link:
good luck

Blogging Trends

Have you ever noticed that some words start out as nouns and become verbs? The recent ones that come to mind are google, blog, and text. My kids are always texting someone or googling something. I, on the other hand, am usually reading blogs as opposed to "blogging." A recent blog trend is the giveaway and there are some great ones out there. For example over at Frugal Mommy of 2 Girls there is a great giveaway for a wonderful stroller called bumbleride valued at $329.99. So, get on over there and enter for a chance to win. I'm sure we all know someone who could use this great stroller.

Turkey giveaway

I've found some really neat giveaways from bloggers. One very timely giveaway is for a Jennie-O Oven Ready Turkey. You can enter for a $20 coupon over at Moms by Heart
Good luck! And good luck with your holiday preparations. I'm in the middle of some very intense Thanksgiving cooking, something I actually look forward to during the weeks before Thanksgiving. Well, maybe what I really look forward to is the "eating" part of the holiday because the cooking and cleaning up can get a bit hectic.

Where does the time go?

I haven't posted anything here since April of last year. I read blogs almost daily, but I have no desire to write anything. Except a few political
insights. But if I wrote those I would get nasty comments. So I won't.
Except for this. Regardless of what happens on election day, I fear we're in a heap of trouble. I just read that 51% of Americans favor heavy taxation of
the wealthy to redistribute wealth. This tells me that over half of our
population is socialist. Or does it simply mean that over half of our population
has no idea how the economy works? A bit of both I bet.
