Giveaways and Gosselin's

I found a few great giveaways to enter today. I added them to my favorite's list on AOL, then I started reading about Jon and Kate Gosselin. I was curious about the rumors surrounding these two, but I forgot to watch the season finale last night. I have been reading a blog written by Aunt Jodi's sister that clearly states that she thinks the children are being exploited. Exploitation has nothing to do with being well fed, clothed, or cared for. Exploitation is using another person for selfish purposes. Are the Gosselin children being exploited? I don't know, but they certainly have no say so in the path their lives are taking. The children are put on display with their lives out there for everyone to watch. Personally, I would be a bit worried about stalkers and crazies who might try to take or harm one or more of my children. I just wouldn't take that chance. So, do you think the children are being exploited? Afterall, the children are the attraction, and they are not supplementing the parents' incomes, they ARE the income. I'm not sure how I feel about this, but I guess it is what it is.
I almost forgot about the giveaways! Here are the ones I'm entering today:

* Ohana Mama is giving one lucky reader a Peek of their very own! The Peek is a nifty little device you can use to email and text. This is giveaway 2 of Ohana Mama's Baby Week 3/23 - 3/27. To read more about this week's giveaways, click on the Ohana Mama's Baby Week button on my sidebar. Good luck!

* Savin Some is hosting a giveaway for one Scentsy warmer and two scent bars. You won't believe how gorgeous the warmers are, and the selection of scents for the scent bars is huge! I would love to smell the cashmere.

* This giveaway is for a Yoga DVD. Not just any Yoga DVD, but Namaste Yoga! I have seen a few Namaste Yoga lessons on TV, but I've never had time to participate. If you need to get rid of some of the stress in your life, you might like to enter this giveaway hosted by Mudpies and Mary Janes.

* Are you as worried as I am about losing stuff if your computer crashes. I am, and I'm so computer stupid that I don't know how to make a backup of my photo's and documents. I always ask my daughter to do it. Then she rolls her eyes and gives me one of those looks. That's why I would love to win Clickfree. Now, with Clickfree there isn’t any excuse for not backing up precious content. The product is so simple to use, you literally just plug in the USB cable or insert the DVD. That’s it. For a chance to win one, go over to Momma's Review and enter.

* Thrifty & Chic Mom is giving away a Piggy Paint gift pack, winner's choice. I love this product because it's safe for little toes and it doesn't have an odor! I absolutely hate the smell of nail polish. When my daughters paint their nails, they know they have to do it outside, regardless of the weather. The smell literally makes me feel sick. This product was long overdue! When you enter at Thrifty & Chic Mom be sure to look for her Sane Fitness giveaway. I'm entering that too!

* This is my last giveaway for the night and it's a good one. Classy and Fabulous is giving away not one, but two gift cards. The first one is a $10 Starbucks card. Yummm. The second one is a $25 TJ Maxx card. What's not to love!

I feel the exact same way about Jon & Kate and have been to Aunt Jodi's sisters' blog. I also on purpose did not want to watch the show on Monday but I am curious. Great blog I found in from ubp'09

I found your blog while I was searching for what peeps are saying about Jon & Kate & I have to say first what child at 4 years old has a say in how their life is going? I think that Kate is a whipping but if I had that many kids I would do the same thing and get a show. How else are they supposed to support them? It looks to me that they all have a pretty charmed life from the new house to the trips and other freebies they get to experience. I stayed at the Maui hotel they went to and they got beyond the royal treatment, our room was no dump but it was a room not a suite and it was $750/night, theirs was $5k/night but of course FREE to them. Anyway that's just my 2 cents!

PS I saw your blog roll....how do you have time for this many blogs??? I am impressed!
