Baby Shower Celebration!! Ends 5/12

I am thrilled to be joining Tots and Me to celebrate the birth of her precious baby boy.  Her Baby Shower Celebration has been extended due to unforeseen circumstances.  The following review was written by Tots and Me.

Tots and Me
A couple of months ago I shared a little bit about

I was sent the Baby Aspen Baby M.D. Three-Piece Layette Set.  I fell in love with this outfit when I was browsing their site.  It comes packaged in this cute little "doctor's bag."

And it unfolds to show it off all set up.

The outfit comes complete with a surgical hat and booties.  And look closely, there is a stethoscope around the neck and even a pen in the pocket.  I just love the cute little details.  Such attention was given to detail that the stethoscope actually goes all the way around to the back of the neck.  I was even able to have baby Harold's initials embroidered on.  I just couldn't pass this up.  It was the closest I could come to a nurses uniform.  Daddy is an LPN and uncle is a physician's assistant.

Doesn't he look so cute?  Can you see this in his future?

Yes, it is a tad big for him.  This is a 0-6 size so he has room to grow into it and he can wear it for a long time.

I think the addition of the booties was just priceless.  It really looks like a doctor's outfit.  I have to admit I left the booties attached to the outfit as they were packaged.  He tends to kick socks and booties off and I didn't want to lose these booties.

Had to get a shot of daddy in his scrubs with the baby in his outfit.  Don't they make a sweet pair?

I just love the idea behind this outfit and the quality is great. has some of the cutest and most unique outfits I have ever seen.  Don't have anyone in the medical profession in your home?  Not as interested in this outfit as I am?
How about a Camo Layette Set

Baby Aspen Baby Camo Two-Piece Layette Set in Backpack Gift Box
Or a Baseball Three Piece Layette Set

Baby Aspen Baby Baseball Three-Piece Layette Set in All-Star Gift Box

And that is only the tip of the iceberg!  There are so many other baby clothes to choose from.  Cute little hats for boys or girls can be found.  And if you are looking specifically for a girl, they have the cutest tutus and headbands among so many other cute outfits and accessories.  What are you waiting for?  Head on over and check them out. 
 I am so thankful they agreed to help sponsor my Baby Shower Giveaway, and they have been so patient with me.  What a great company this is!
Don't forget to check out
You can also visit them on Facebook and Twitter.
And check out their internet newspaper for parents, Parentsnewz on Facebook and Twitter.
After you check out what they carry I am sure you would love to win a $25 GC so you can get something for yourself or perhaps as a baby shower gift. Just fill in the Rafflecopter below. 

Disclosure: I received  the Baby Aspen Baby MD layette set for free as a part of my Baby Shower Celebration. This did not in any way influence my review. I only recommend products I use personally and will be good for my readers.

CVS Trip Week of 4/22/12

For those of you that don't know, I am back in the states which means I am back to couponing, yay!!  I did some shopping last week but I goofed up a little so I figured I wouldn't bother posting that trip.  I got all of this at CVS for only $4 and it retails for $41.48!!  I love couponing and have missed it so much!!  Pictured is 6 Hallmark cards, 2 Physician Formula makeups, 2 16 packs of Tampax Radiant, and 2 18 packs of Kotex U.  The CVS I went to was out of the Blink Tears eye drops that I wanted but they were unloading their truck so I will stop by tomorrow to get them because those will be a $2 Money Maker so it will bring my total for everything to only $2!!  I was in withdrawal for the 10 months that I was in the Dominican Republic and I'm so happy to be back to couponing.

Nature's Sleep Slippers Giveaway Ends 5/10

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for Nature's Sleep slippers.

Review written by Bargain Hound: I have had the opportunity to review a pair of memory foam slippers from Nature's Sleep. I chose the color pink in the closed-toe style slipper. As soon as I tried them on I fell in love with them. They were SO comfy! I live in NY and the winters here are VERY cold. Not to mention that winters seem to last for 10 months out of the year here! Ok, a slight exaggeration but I wear slippers almost year round. I have owned many, many pairs of slippers in the last few years alone. We have 3 dogs, and our min-pin loves to sleep with her head in them, and our chihuahua loves to drag them around. So I'm always finding only one slipper at a time. But these slippers will not have that problem, because they will be treasured! As soon as I slipped into these, I could tell these were not my Walmart slippers. These were quality. They were so soft and had so much cushion, it was like I was walking on pillows. They not only feel incredibly soft, but they also keep my feet very warm! I'm one who is always cold, so having warm slippers is a must for me. I hate it when my feet get cold! Check out Nature's Sleep's online store, and use coupon code BEARS50 to save 50% off any purchase from their online store! This is an amazing deal!! Definitely "Bargain Hound" worthy! These slippers are $30 on their website, and this means you can score a pair for yourself for just $15! (I wear a size 8 and the Mediums fit me perfectly.) But that's not all they carry. I'm sure you've heard of Nature's Sleep before.. they carry memory foam mattresses, pillows, memory foam bed toppers, and even pet beds! Click here to register with Nature's Sleep and enter in a drawing to win any product from their store! (This will be the only mandatory entry in the Rafflecopter, so you can just do it now, and when you fill out the Rafflecopter form below, you can state you already did it) Follow Nature's Sleep on Facebook, Google+ and Twitter too! So would you like to win a free pair of Nature's Sleep memory foam slippers? Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below, to enter to win! This giveaway is open to US residents and will run from 4/26 to 5/10. Good luck to everyone!

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycle Bin Giveaway Ends 5/8

I was asked to help promote a giveaway for a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycle Bin. This review is written by Bargain Hound: I have had the opportunity to review a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler! I love the design of this cool gadget. It is large enough to hold all of our recyclables, but compact enough to hide under our kitchen sink! We used to have an ugly, out of place plastic container for our recyclables (and sometimes stuffed them in plastic bags), but this is so much nicer! No one has to look at our ugly recyclables anymore. In fact, this hidden recycler is actually very nice looking, and I wouldn't mind it if people could see it. But, it's designed to be hidden and it does a great job. You just throw your recyclables in it, and when it gets full, just lift the plastic handle and it slides off the door, and you can empty it into your larger recycle bin outside, in the garage, or wherever you store them. Then it just slides right back into place on the door. And although it's compact, it holds quite a bit. I am very impressed with this little recycler! And Rubbermaid makes the best products. When it says Rubbermaid, you know it's going to be made well!

About Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler:
  • Easy attachment to a cabinet door with hooks included with the product or screws
  • A convenient handle allows the bag to be easily transported to wherever your recycling is stored for pick-up or transport
  • A 5 gallon bag that holds up to 36 12-ounce cans and can fit a milk jug
  • The bag has a leak-proof liner and is machine washable to make it easy to clean after any unexpected spills
  • The bag is soft-sided allowing for flexibility inside any cabinet
  • The bag and all packaging is made from recycled material, and the product is recyclable
Visit Rubbermaid on TwitterFacebook, and check out the Rubbermaid blog, too. Would you like to win a Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler of your own? Well here's your chance! The awesome people at Rubbermaid are giving away one Hidden Recycler to one of my readers! Just fill out the Rafflecopter form below, to enter to win! This is open to US and Canada residents! This giveaway will run from 4/24 through 5/8. Good luck to everyone!

Oogave Natural Soda Giveaway Ends 4/20

I was asked to help promote another giveaway from Coupons in Motion for Oogave Natural Soda.  Read the review and enter to win below.  Thanks for entering and good luck!!

Thanks to Coupons In Motion for this Review & Giveaway!

Oogave! Oogave! I love saying that name. LOL

Looking for a natural soda? Look no further. But why stop there? If you care enough to go natural, go all the way and drink only organic soda. Oogave soda is BOTH natural and organic. And offers a variety of flavors.

I received a variety case of 12 sodas for my review. They all tasted great! The only one I was a little concerned about was grapefruit. But Coree from Oogave told me it is somewhat like the old Fresca. So my husband and I popped the top and gave it a try. Amazingly it was quite good. Probably one of my favorite flavors. You will want to check out Oogave's website to see all the flavors they have. They also have a slick Google Map to help you find them in restaurants, grocery stores, and other locations. You can search the map by zooming in or clicking on a location icon. Or just enter your zip code or address to find the locations closest to you! A little bit about how Oogave Soda came to be. The idea for OogavĂ© organic sodas first came to Esteban Anson while running his small natural foods restaurant in downtown Denver. As a fanatic of quality, and a devotee of delicious and wholesome handcrafted foods, Esteban used only the best natural ingredients in his restaurant. From the fresh baked breads to the home-made salad dressings, nothing artificial or commercial made it past Esteban. And that’s what his customers kept coming back for. With the help of two close friends and the Small Business Administration, Esteban built his own little soda plant in Denver, Colorado. The operation was certified Kosher and Organic by Scroll K and the Colorado Department of Agriculture. In January of 2009, the ribbon was cut and the first delicious bottles of OogavĂ© organic soda rolled off the line heading for natural grocery stores and restaurants around Colorado. (You can read more on their website.) Oogave is the first soda to be sweetened only with 100% certified organic agave nectar--not one drop of HFCS. Not only is agave nectar a fantastic sweetener, but the garbage found in traditional sodas has been removed. Artificial flavors, artificial colors, salt, and preservatives such as sodium benzoate are not used. Oogave has only four principal ingredients: agave nectar, carbonated water, citric acid, and natural flavors--nothing that cannot be found in nature.

You can also find Oogave on Facebook and Twitter.

Oogave has generously offered a variety case of 12 sodas for the winner of this giveaway.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Cook'n Recipe Organization Software Giveaway Ends 4/15

Did you guys want another chance to win the Cook'n Software?  Well I was asked by Coupons in Motion to help promote her giveaway so read the review and enter below.  Thanks for entering and good luck!!

Thanks to Coupons In Motion for this Review and Giveaway!

Cook'n is an Online Recipe Organizer

Recipe cards, pages cut from magazines, family recipes written on notebook paper, index cards. Yep, I have all of those stuck in various places. Mostly in a large plastic container in one of my bottom kitchen cabinets and in a kitchen drawer. And when I want a particular recipe, I have to dig through both places because I don't remember where I put the one I'm looking for. Fess up. Does this sound like you? Where do you keep all your recipes? Do you have lots of cookbooks laying around that only have 1 or 2 recipes in them that you actually use? Do you like using your computer to stay organized? Then this is the product for you!

Cook'n is the The Easiest Way to:

  • Find the Best Recipes on the Internet
  • Capture and Save Internet Recipes
  • Enter Your Own Personal Recipes
  • Sync Recipes with iPhone, iPad, & Android
  • Print a Family Cookbook
  • Analyze Nutritional Values
  • Make Menus, Shopping Lists & More!
  • Get Free Cookbook with Purchase

Cook'n is several products in one


1) Recipe Manager

  • Easily add your own recipes
  • Capture hundreds of internet recipes
  • Create and organize cookbooks with different chapters
  • Search for recipes by what foods you have on hand
  • Easily change recipe serving sizes to automatically convert ingredient amounts
My thoughts on adding recipes. I did have a little bit of a problem when I first tried to "capture" (import) a recipe. I was following the instructions but it didn't pull the recipe in as stated. After doing a little searching in the HELP section, I found my answer. Cook'n is not set up to pull recipes from some websites, although the publishers are working on this issue. I was trying to pull a recipe from and was not able to. However, I found the same recipe on and it "captured" it with no problem.
When you are trying to find a recipe that you would like to add to your personal cookbook, you just type in what you are looking for, such as: brownies, slow cooker roast beef, macaroni salad, etc. The search engine in Cook'n then scours the internet to find you a recipe. This search option brings you up one or more recipes from different sources that meet your criteria. You can then look at the different recipes to determine which one you would like to import.
You can create many different cookbooks with different themes. It's a lot of fun just trying out all the different options available in this program.
I also tried entering my own recipes that I have on hand. Talk about easy! The format of Cook'n is very easy to follow. You just start typing and the program helps you along. Start typing "te" for teaspoon and it brings it up in a drop-down list. "C" and it brings up cup. And so on. You can have your recipes added to your cookbook in no time at all.

2) Menu Planner

  • Use your recipes to make meal menu plans
  • Create your own weekly, monthly, and yearly menus
  • Automatically generate a shopping list from your menus
  • Print your menus and stick them on the fridge

3) Grocery Shopping Assistant

  • Compiles your family's shopping list automatically
  • Organizes shopping list items by aisle
  • Converts to package sizes (e.g., tablespoon tomato paste to 8 oz. cans)
  • Choose which brands you want for your foods
  • Calculates your grocery cost

4) Personal Home Nutritionist

  • Analyze the nutritional elements of recipes and menus (even the ones you add!)
  • View standard nutritional labels for every food and recipes
  • Choose between brands to satisfy dietary needs
  • Include nutritional info on recipe and cookbook printouts

5) Cookbook Publisher

  • Print recipes on various card and paper sizes
  • Print entire cookbooks with title page, table of contents, and index!
  • E-mail recipes to friends
  • Export recipes to your website or blog
My overall opinion is that I think Cook'n is a great Online Recipe Organizer!
Cook'n has agreed to provide a copy of their Online Recipe Organizer to the winner of a giveaway hosted via Rafflecopter. Enter on the form below!


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
