[Giveaway Winner!] Win Your Gifts: $100 in toys from Around My Family Table

Another 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 things fast sometimes so you never know. Hasbro sponsored the giveaway- THANKS HASBRO and I had delivery of the toys within 5 days. The giveaway hit a little snag with one of the mentioned giveaway items was not in stock so my options were a substitution or wait until item was in. I took the substitution.

So without further to do...Look at the goodies

It is back to school time and reading is back in. I recently found some great new hardback and paperback books for .02 cents at my local shopping center. Books on audio are also awesome. Every parent knows that kids’ brains are like sponges, soaking up drops of information and words (even the four-letter ones we don’t always want them to). But did you know that 85 percent of what we learn, we learn by listening? According to the Audio Publishers Association, listening increases reading accuracy by 52 percent, and combining print and audio increases memory 40 percent over print alone. is making it easier (and more fun!) for kids to expand their vocabularies, increase reading speed, improve fluency, and teach pronunciation. No matter what genre your child gravitates towards, has lots of exciting kids content that can be enjoyed while waiting for appointments, before bedtime, and during car rides (the age-old question “Are we there yet?” will become a thing …

All Natural Feels So Breezy!

I was not compensated for this post. I received the products from winning a public giveaway. All opinions are my own.

Last week I received a congratulations email. I had not been entering giveaways in quite some time with school, home, and work duties taking up a lot of my time. The email notified me that my name was selected as a 'Be SUN SMART with GRATEFULBODY' Giveaway WINNER! The giveaway was hosted by The All Natural Beauty Website.

I had been looking for a skincare regimen that included an awesome moisturizer, toner, and even serum. My skincare routine only included cleanser. I know it is so sad to say. I am quite impressed with the quality of the products. I am not used to a cleanser without suds but the cleaner did leave my face feeling refreshed and clean. The toner i…
