  • MoM of BoYs WiTh ToYs has another great giveaway on the go. I drive almost an hour to work each day and I'm tired of listening to the same old CDs over and over again. I've thought about getting myself an audiobook to see if that would make the time go by faster but I just haven't bothered making a trip to the library to sign one out or heading to the nearest bookstore (that's an hour and a half away!) or ordering one on-line. Why? I'm not sure, but now that I have a chance to win one I am definitely interested!

    I like the mystery/suspense genre so this sounds like a good book! CLICK HERE TO ENTER Winner will be chosen March 28th

I hope to win a pair for him because these are fabulous! Anything that will stay on his face and protect him from harmful UV rays is a must! We plan on spending a lot of time outdoors this spring and summer and I am a fairly cautious person - you know, sunscreen, hat, and of course, sunglasses - you can never be too careful!

A Super-Secented Giveaway

I while back I won a Scentsy Warmer and choice of Scentsy Bar from Cindy, a SuperStar Consultant with Scentsy. Before I go on about the great Scentsy products I want to begin by letting you know that Cindy was a pleasure to deal with. She asked me if I would be interested in purchasing any products from her to include with my win. I didn't order anything from her at the time due to financial reasons (coming off mat. leave and working part time doesn't really allow me to treat myself to much these days) and she never pressured me. The items were shipped very quickly, and let me tell you the scent was fabulous when I opened the box!

I chose the Sand Dollar Plug-In Warmer and the Cinnamon Cider Scentsy Bar. The Warmer is absolutely beautiful - more so than I expected! ...and the Cinnamon Cider Scentsy Bar....YUM! The smell is Mmmmmmm................

Cindy is hosting another giveaway. This time, in honor of Valentine's Day, she's giving away January's Warmer of the month, Hugs & Kisses and the Scent Berry Blush. She also says if you're not a fan of that warmer, she'll "show you some love and let you chose a different one". See - a great person to do business with!

(Photo taken from

By the way, she's also offering 10% off EVERYTHING. That's right! So CLICK HERE to enter her giveaway. The contest closes on Sunday, February 7th so hurry and get your entries in!

Waffle Maker Giveaway

I know, first I blogged about losing weight and now I am posting about a waffle maker, but really...if I win it I'll be good ;) ...and to be fair, it's not all my fault as both are giveaways from MOM OF BOYS WITH TOYS, so I'll blame Jonnie if I gain instead of lose (just kidding, Jonnie).
If you would like a chance at winning this Cuisinart Waffle Maker (c/o CNS Stores), CLICK HERE to visit Mom of Boys with Toys and to enter this fabulous giveaway.

Exercise and Weight loss (and a GIVEAWAY!)

After my son was born I lost a bunch of weight right away, but then it started coming back quickly as I sat around holding an infant and not moving around very much. In the spring I went out for walks and did a trial membership at a gym, but still nothing.

I am now on a mission and need help! Luckily I came across this giveaway at Mom of Boys with Toys today. ENTER HERE for your chance to win one of 5 copies of Denise Austin's book, Denise's Daily Dozen.
