Its all about the

Monopoly money that is....Monopoly Electronic banking win. Hubby saw this and said he would play monopoly anytime with the new version.  And he has with my daughters. I haven't played it yet but I expect too over the holidays! This win was from hightechdad blog. The giveaway was another one sponsored by Hasbro.

Right up my daughter's alley (LOL)

Cereal...from the fruity to the cinnamony sweet taste of them all, she can eat them many times a day and everyday along with oatmeal. This was a very great win (not to mention helping on grocery cost). I hopped over to where a Star Wars cereal giveaway was being hosted.  The back of the boxes have a star Wars panoramic poster showcasing  Darth VadarTM when you put them side by side. Katelyn does like holding the cereal boxes and reading them while she is eating. 

The giveaway was furnished by Blogspark and these are the three cereals that I received along with a $25 dollar walmart gift card. Katelyn actually started on the box of Lucky Charms this morning!

Another great stocking stuffer win.....

for my daughter from! I know katelyn will enjoy it!

Can you say an army wives marathon.......

Yes, during my Christmas vacation this is what I will be watching. So happy I won because I missed most of  the season's episodes. I don't know what was up with this but I am really an army wives fan. I started out into the beginning of army wives. I guess after viewing days and times changes, somewhere along the way I got lost. But now I can play catch up.  I was one of five winners from I was going for the disney on ice tickets but I won the consolation prize. A win win for me!

Love from the oven but oven!

A very nice win! I fell in love with cake pops when my daughter brought one home from a party her class had at school. I thought maybe a professional baker had done them until I googled and found out what cake pops are. I also found some awesome giveaways that I entered also to win them. You can buy them for $5.95 plus shipping but I don't have to. And these are no bake. With some creme cheese, melted chocolate, sprinkles, and your favorite cookies, you are baking (my mistake making but who will know the difference.  I will be trying these and putting out for Santa instead of the original cookie version this year. I won the giveaway from and the link takes you to an great step-by-step tutorial with images (LOL). I know some of us need them. Out of 554 comments, my lucky number #268 was called (not literally) but from

I have enough mascara........

Well I did not think that at the time when I was flipping through a magazine. I received a sample of  Mary Kay Mascara. A lot of giveaways in magazine are done using the tag code reader that you can get from your carrier (mines was already installed on phone) or send a text off and they will send you the download link to your phone.  I have so much mascara from doing product testing with loreal and good housekeeping that this tube will going into a gift basket for some lucky person.

Burn Notice- Spy Package

Yes a burn notice prize pack! I love this show. I watch it a lot. I have to admit I watch it only for the adventure and the blowing up of stuff plus they always concoct a plan that comes out successful in the end. This season, I am a bit missed if it will end in Michael more deep in trouble with both the FEDS and the people who burned him or just with the FEDS. I won the package from which is a television and movie review site. The entry method was commenting on other blog posts of theirs. Anyhow this was the awesome package I won. I love this travel bag. It looks like something Fiona uses to put all of her guns and explosives in. It is very stylish.  A Cocktail Shaker and a Mojitos 101 Book was also included (and yes I will learn how to shake a mojitos probably during New Year's Eve. I also received a Season 4 DVD and  T-Shirt. I don't know the value of the prize pack but I can estimate it at being over $100.00.  I did miss a few episodes so this will definitely …

Girls just want to have fun!

[Giveaway Winner!] Win Your Gifts: $100 in toys from Around My Family TableAnother great win for me which came from Wendy's blog!--also from a blog hop. I entered this giveaway via rafflecopter. My opinion is rafflecopter canbe a bit time consuming because you may have to "like" over 50+  individual facebook, twitter, GFC pages, and a host of other mandatory activities just to enter the giveaway. While I don't do them often, I may enter a few on occasion. I do remember this- this was a Sunday evening with nothing to do. My daughter doing her own thing around the house and my hubby glued to football so I took out the computer and started entering. I won and could not believe it when I got the email to send her my address. I am going to share my winnings with my family of course. Three gifts will go to three little girls in the family for Christmas. I will keep the rest for Katelyn for her 7th birthday (I hope she is still into dolls then!) They grow in and out of thin…

Suprise Win! was part of a blog hop in November. A blog hop is  a group of blogs interconnected showcasing giveaways on each person's blog that all end on a certain day. So you visit each blog to see what they have to giveaway. She was giving away a hide-away box with A Christmas Mary Engelbreit Journal, A set of 10 note cards just waiting to be embellished, and a lovely, new Paper-mate pen ( a cute gift). Although I did not win, she did have a surprise for the 100th follower of her blog via GFC (google friend connect). I was the 100th follower (who says 7 is the only lucky number). I received from her a great Mary Engelbreit desktop organizer.

It is very spacious for all your organizational needs. 

This will definitely come in handy. My daughter seems to have more appointments (school related activities) than I do. So this will definitely be useful.

I caught a lucky break!

I have been a subscriber to lucky magazine for over 6 months now. While I enjoy the magazine I really never took time to enter the giveaways because I find my odds of winning very slim until the September issue with a great number of prizes so I figured I would give it a try. Plus I prefer one entry giveaways than daily entry  and this giveaway fit all the right components of number of giveaways + one entry method (for each giveaway). Well low and behold, I won 3 giveaways.  I won the Bioelements giveaway (which I have already received)

and Rusk

and these two I received email notifications for but another surprise showed up in the mail. A great win from Shutterfly. I have been on shutterfly numerous times trying to figure out how to redeem this awesome prize. So many beautiful options or do I want to use it to give to my mother-in law for christmas. What a blessing because I do not know how to decide.

A turkey of a win- literally! and David Elliott Poultry Farm had an awesome giveaway to win a 12-14 lb turkey. And guess what! You guessed correct- I won one of those good looking turkeys. It was an unlimited entry (via online form) submittig what you are thankful for. Well my daughter helped me win because this was my winning statement (Message:>  “I am thankful for my daughter katelyn!) 10 where given away (2 per day/5 days). And this is such a good looking turkey even if it is wrapped.  My mother-in-law had already agreed to do the turkey for thanksgiving so this bad boy (LOL) will be on the table for Christmas! Click on over to koshereye because they have some more awesome giveaways going on!---- I will also do a taste test and let you know how mmm.....good the turkey was after christmas.

A DVD win: The River Why: One Man's Struggle To Catch His Dreams has your inside preview of movies being released to DVD. I love entering giveaways that ask for you to send an email to them to enter. Just my opinion, but I don't believe many people enter these type of giveaway! They also showcase movie trailers with latest news and announcements from the movie entertainment world. I received it over the thanksgiving weekend. So I will be watching it tonight with my hubby. No redbox for us!

About Me...........

My little katie baby!
 I call myself a first time blogger, I do occasionally like to post about things that get me excited from other bloggers.  At this moment in my life, I am wanting to blog more and share products to the world like many other worldly bloggers for my family of 3 (including myself). i do hold down a full-time office job. I like the thrill of winning. While I am not a so-called gambler because I only go to casinos to check out the awesome buffets, I do from time to time like to enter sweepstakes and giveaways. While I have only been doing this for about two years now, it does give me a thrill of winning. So here is where I will show you all of my winnings and share with you that winning things from sweepstakes and blog giveaways do happen. I would love to post giveaways and products that come across my way that is interesting to me!  I feel I am blessed to win so I am going to show it off to ya..............
