Pinkalicious - The Musical, Giveaway

This is not a review because I haven't been to it yet....I go on the 25th with my sister and her two girls and my daughter. We are having a girls night out! Anyway...I happen to have ONE extra free ticket to ANY of the performances. It is a childs ticket, and you would have to purchase the adult ticket to go with it....you can get those at Hy-Vee for $13.00. If you have never been to the Rose before, I encourage you to go...it is really neat...and with the free ticket for your child, the atmosphere, the play....I think $13 is worth it personally. We go every year with all of our kids. Last year we saw the Velveteen Rabbit...this year, I didn't think the boys would be into Pinkalicious...so we are making it a girls night. Anyway, this one free child ticket is good for any of the performances of Pinkalicious from September 10th through the 26th. You need to be in or near Omaha though for this as it is only good at the Rose Theater in Omaha. Below is the low down on the show...and the giveaway!
Pinkalicious - The Musical

Main Stage
9/10/2010 - 9/26/2010
Pinkalicious takes her passion for pink too far when adding extra coloring to her mother's cupcakes leads to a severe case of Pinkititis – a condition that turns her pink from head to toe. It's a dream come true for Pinkalicious, but an important lesson is learned when her rosy hue turns red and the only cure for "too much of a good thing" is vegetables!

Written by Elizabeth Kann & Victoria Kann • Music by John Gregor • Lyrics by John Gregor, Elizabeth Kann & Victoria Kann • Based on the book "Pinkalicious" by Elizabeth Kann & Victoria Kann • Presented through special arrangement with and all authorized performance materials are supplied by Theatrical Rights Worldwide, www.theatricalrights.com.

Special thanks to Oriental Trading Company - The Rose's official "Fun Sponsor" - for providing show-related giveaway items!

Anti Monkey Butt Powder review and giveaway!

Drawing CLOSED!! Congratulations to JES!!!!!

Anti Monkey Butt Powder – Perfect for the active guy in your life…whether he takes part in physical hobbies or has a job that runs him around! Anti Monkey Butt Powder, invented by motocross riders, is designed to prevent and reduce friction and irritation that can result from excess sweat. As you (and maybe some of your husbands, boyfriends, brothers, friends know), excessive sweat can cause irritation of the buttocks and inner thighs, also known as "monkey butt". Unlike other powders, Anti Monkey Butt has calamine and talc which gives it a cooling sensation instead of the burning that you might get from other powder products (anybody who has used those other powders will know what “the burning” is we are referring to!). Find out more at http://www.antimonkeybutt.com/.

It’s got the cutest label and it’s a real product that has a huge following. There are more than 23,000 Anti Monkey Butt fans on our Facebook page alone!
Anti Monkey Butt also has a new lady friend – new Lady Anti Monkey Butt – which makes a great stocking stuffer for women, too. Lady Anti Monkey Butt Powder delivers the same great results, but is made with calamine and cornstarch for a more silky texture. Perfect for frictional discomfort that women often experience when using exercise equipment, running, driving, cycling, bra straps/cleavage perspiration or just walking.

Available in mass market retail nationwide, as well as via online retailers and at http://www.antimonkeybutt.com/.

BUY IT:
Suggested retail price for Anti Monkey Butt® Powder is $5.95 for a 6-ounce bottle.

MY TAKE:
I myself do not suffer from Monkey Butt....but my 11 year son does. So I had him give it a try. At first, he was a bit reluctant....but once I reminded him how his hockey pads rubbed on him while he was sweating on the ice...he changed his mind. He has gone from liking it, to not liking it...so I am not sure I can give an accurate review. He liked it for the most part...but the times he said he didn't like it was because it made him itch. You have to understand my son though. He has terrible food allergies and therefore he has a tendency to get bad excema. Things just sometimes do that to him. I tried it...even though I don't suffer from Monkey Butt...and it did not make me itch...so I think it was just his skin that was the culprit. However, it DID do the job it was supposed to do for him. I would give it a B+.

GIVEAWAY:
One lucky Hockey Mom follower will win one of each bottle of Monkey Butt Powder for males and females!

Mandatory Entry: You MUST be a follower and tell at least one other person to come over to Nebraska Hockey mom and become a follower as well (they don't HAVE to become a follower for this entry to count...but I am trusting you guys to tell someone to do it!) :-)

Fiber Supplement review and giveaway!

Drawing CLOSED!!! Congratulations Deana!!!!



Great-tasting Fiber Supplement for Kids:

Introduced in 2009, Pedia-Lax® Fiber Gummies, are a daily fiber supplement made just for kids by Fleet®, a trusted brand for digestive health for more than 100 years. So many kids lack the proper amount of fiber in their diets, but wrinkle their little noses at the kinds of foods that will add it in (my kids love to say “Mom, I don’t WANT brown bread!”). Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are a great, tasty and sugar-free way to get some much-needed fiber into your little ones’ diets. I’ve included some important info below and hope you will consider reviewing the product and telling your readers about it.

More product information:

In 2009 the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) significantly increased the recommended daily fiber intake standards, far above the previous "age plus five" rule. In fact, today's updated guidelines recommend 25 grams of fiber per day for four-year-old children. But how do we meet these requirements and get our children to eat high in fiber foods?

Now there's a delicious daily fiber supplement to help kids ages 2-11 maintain better digestive health and stay regular.* The penguin-shaped, great tasting Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies are sugar-free, calorie-free, gluten-free and made with natural fruit flavors. With a recommended serving of three gummies every day, (equal to ½ cup of broccoli!), Fiber Gummies are a great way to supplement the fiber found in fruits, vegetables and other fiber-rich foods in your child’s daily diet. It’s a great solution to help bridge the gap between the American Academy of Pediatrics recommended amount of fiber and the fiber that kids actually consume in their daily diet. Fiber Gummies are dentist approved as well.

BUY THEM:
Suggested retail price is $7.99 for a bottle of 60 gummies.
Available at Target and Walgreens, also online and other supermarkets and retailers nationwide. I saw some at K-Mart as well.
MY TAKE:

I have to admit...I wasn't sure what I was going to find when I received these. So many times, "gummies" just aren't as good as they should be. I tried these out before I let my kids try them...and they are YUMMY! I could see where there may be a problem with kids wanting TOO MANY of them. I started letting my children have them, and they are SO excited at every meal, to get one (the recommended dose is 3 a day). I STILL take them. So when it was time to go buy more, I DEFINITELY did....and yes...I am also...STILL taking them personally!!

You can also visit http://www.fibergummies.com/ where you will get a $1.00 off coupon and use the “store locator” to see where the product is sold in your area. And, because we know getting kids to eat foods high in fiber without complaint is a challenge faced by many moms the Web site also offers helpful tips on how to incorporate a high-fiber diet into a busy family’s lifestyle with tips for meal planning and easy-to-make recipes on the Web site, too.

Pedia-Lax® Fiber Gummies, a delicious, sugar-free daily fiber supplement for kids ages 2-11 is excited to announce that it has been awarded the influential PTPA Media Inc.’s Seal of Approval for excellence in family products.

Consumers looking for practical, high-quality products and services can rest easy knowing that products bearing the PTPA Media “Winner” Seal are all “Parent Tested, Parent Approved™.”

As a result, the Parent Tested Parent Approved™ Seal has quickly gained recognition as an international leader in certifying consumer products for quality, effectiveness and value.

Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies is also on Facebook, so be sure to find Pedia-Lax Fiber Gummies on Facebook to sample products and for a chance to win more fan prizes.

Now the brand that helps kids stay regular* and maintain better digestive health* is also helping them have fun!

*This statement has not been evaluated by the Food & Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent any disease.
**I was not compensated at all for this review. I was however given a bottle to try and let my kids try so that I could accurately review the product. The views and opinions in this statement are mine and mine alone.

WIN ONE:
One lucky Hockey Mom follower will win their very own bottle of Pedia-Lax Fiber Supplement!
MANDATORY ENTRY: Go to the Pedia-lax website and tell me what the "mascot" seems to be!

Breast Cancer Awareness


Many of you know that I lost my mom to Breast Cancer 18 months ago...far too early. She was only 61 years old....far too young. Since her diagnosis, I have made it my goal to help as many people as I can on this topic. Raising awareness is the first step. Know the facts...know your body....it may save your life someday.

Reminder....NEUTROGENA GIVEAWAY!!


Be sure to head over to my Neutrogena Post and enter to win your very own daily sunblock! I can't do the drawing until I hit 40 followers!! So....ENTER and tell ALL your friends!!!!!

This is my second review of this product, and I must say that nothing has changed since my first review. I think it is a wonderful product. It has given me no troubles at all and has kept my face from getting burned in that fierce sun. I have tested it while swimming, gardening, running, at the park...NO problems and NO burning on my face!!!

Just to review, Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock is a liquid sunblock for your face, that is so lightweight that you won't even know you applied it. It goes on your face easily and absorbs almost instantly. It is smooth, non-greasy and works well under makeup. It also contains Helioplex tecknology for superior broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Reading the information on it makes me even more excited that it worked so well. This is a product that I will continue to use and will suggest to all of my family and friends. You can never be too careful when dealing with your skin in the sun. Too often people will put sunscreen on, but they figure with makeup, they are fine. That is not the case. If your makeup doesn't have sunscreen in it, then you will have no protection. This is JUST the protection you need!!! I am sold!!!

One lucky Hockey Mom reader will win a 1.4 FL OZ tube of their OWN UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock!

Boudreaux's Butt Paste


This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.


Have you heard of Boudreaux's Butt Paste? I have...it started out innocently enough. We saw it at Walmart and my brother in law was expecting his first baby. We bought it SIMPLY because of the name!! We had a couple of our own kids...but had never tried it before...but we wanted him to have something with a cute name like that!


After he and his wife used it on their little one, they let us know how impressed they were by it. We thought they were kidding....but they weren't. Hmmm....we had another baby on the way...maybe we should try it. So we did! And we really liked it!!! It does work just as well as Desitin...which is what we typically used. We have noone to use this on anymore...but if we did...we would be using this Butt paste...no doubt about it!


Since then, we have heard from several other families how much they like using the "Butt Paste". The name still makes me crack up! Get it?? Crack up??!?! HA!!!


I would strongly encourage you to visit their website and receive your own free sample of Boudreaux's Butt Paste!


But don't take it JUST from me...here is a little bit of background:


Boudreaux's Butt Paste® was specifically formulated by a pharmacist with direction from a respected pediatrician to provide effective diaper rash care.

- Pediatrician recommended
-Goes on and cleans off easily
-Available in convenient sizes
-Flip top cap (tubes)
-Handy travel size
-Pleasant scent
-Skin protectant

NMEDA




This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of NMEDA. All opinions are 100% mine.



Before today, I had never heard of NMEDA. Have you? If so...I am interested to know!

NMEDA is a non-profit trade association; they educate consumers on buying products from a NMEDA qualified dealer.

-NMEDA DOES NOT SELL ANYTHING: NMEDA is the only association that promotes safe driving and equipment for disabled people. They are non-profit and their members are required to adhere to the safety standards of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. NMEDA dealers (members) are the ones who sell handicap vans and vehicle modifications for disabled people.

- No two people with a disability are exactly the same. Beware of adapted wheelchair vehicles sold over the Internet or through catalogs. After a personalized “in-person” evaluation, you can be sure you are getting the right driving solution customized to your specific lifestyle and needs. If you need additional training or product refinements, your NMEDA dealer is there to help you.

- NMEDA has Dealers AND Quality Assurance Program (QAP) dealers.

* The Quality Assurance Program (QAP) is the only nationally recognized accreditation program for the Adaptive Mobility Equipment Industry. It is based on the principle that in order to satisfy customers consistently, companies must have a systematic and documented approach to quality.

Having been through medical disabilities with loved ones in the past, I can tell you first hand that it is very difficult to be a caregiver when there is so much needed from you. It is tough. There is a lot to think about and process ALL the time. An NMEDA qualified dealer would have been absolutely an answered prayer for my family and I. Having someone there that knows what they are doing to assist would have been incredible! I am even a former nurse...but I would have STILL like to have had someone there that knew the equipment, etc.

A NMEDA dealer can also help the elderly and/or disabled get back into life. They could gain the confidence that they need to gain the independence that so many of them want. What more could you ask for?



I went to nmeda.org and on the homepage, you can type in your zip code and see if there are any qualified dealers near you. There were 3 within my zipcode! That is great to know! I may not need it right now for me or anyone I know....but you never know when the information you gain may be needed in the future, or maybe you know of someone that may need it.


I really encourage you all to do the same thing. Knowledge is power. Go to their website, nmeda.org,


After you've visited their site, come back and comment letting me know your closest qualified dealer!!!

Paperspring review and COUPON CODE!!!!

If you remember, a few weeks ago, I reviewed a company called Paperspring. Here is the original post:

Paperspring
Paperspring has custom made cards for all of your special moments!
Baby announcements, birthday invitations, thank you cards and much more!
Paperspring seems to be fantastic!
-There is FREE shipping on EVERY order,
-fast and easy personalization with instant online previews,

-and extraordinary service and 100% customer satisfaction guarentee!!

I must say...I am impressed!!!


I was given a gift card to use as a result of the "mom" bag I got from "Mom" magazine. I purchased some of my Christmas Cards. I used a photo of the family from Lake Powell and put it on paper that is like clingy paper! No magnet needed...but that little picture will stick to anything!! It can be applied...reapplied...and applied somemore! SO fun and SO cool...and SO easy!! I am VERY impressed with their quality, their promptness and their customer service. I was also sent samples of their cards. They are very heavy duty cards...not cheap and flimsy. I would give this company an A++ and I will be using them again!!

Now here is the best part!!!
The incredible people at Paperspring are offering a Hockey Mom reader a special discount of $10 off orders of $50 or more PLUS free shipping for the month of August!! All you have to do is use the code: PSAUGUST (expires 8/31).

Certain Dri Solid Anti-Perspirant review and giveaway!

CLOSED
Winner...#10 Brooke!
Congratulations!


New Certain Dri Solid Antiperspirant (for men & women).

What THEY say about it:

Certain Dri is the number one over-the-counter antiperspirant recommended by doctors for treating excessive perspiration. New to the Certain Dri line of antiperspirant products is Certain Dri Solid, equally effective and specially-formulated for those with sensitive skin. While other over-the-counter antiperspirants claim to be “clinical strength” and “waterproof” the Certain Dri formulations – 12% aluminum chloride and 25% aluminum sesquichlorohydrate - are the strongest available, providing 72-hours of protection with each application. Retail price is $5.50-$6, almost 40% less than the other clinical strength antiperspirant products.

Dermatologists have been recommending Certain Dri Anti-Perspirant Roll-On to help control excessive sweating of the feet (helps prevent blisters) and hands, too. Same directions apply. Apply sparingly at night and let completely dry before washing hands or feet, getting dressed or slipping into bed.

On 7/14/09, Certain Dri was on the national TV show, Good Morning America in a segment on Sweat.
http://abcnews.go.com/video/playerIndex?id=8077794

MY TAKE:

I have to say...I was skeptical. I am VERY picky about what I put on my body. However, I do have a problem with sweat. Yes...I am female...and I don't glow...I get DRENCHED with sweat!! Granted...it is very hot and humid here....and I am in the midst of sweat season, but still....most of my girl friends just glow...or glisten...IF THAT. Then there is me....my clothes look like I just got out of a swimming pool when I am done walking outside, running, exercising whatever. I DO exercise a lot...and thought, hmm...I am going to give it a try. I typically don't stink, but like I said, I DO sweat and it IS a nuisance.

It goes on JUST like my usual anti-perspirant. Maybe doesn't glide on QUITE as well...but not too much of a difference. However, the end result was what caught my attention. It really DOES help stop the excessiveness of sweating!! I didn't have near the trouble. The directions say to apply at bedtime. I don't know about it...but I have a real problem putting anti-perspirant on at bedtime. So...I didn't follow the directions the first couple days. I applied in the morning, just like always. Then I thought, "Hmm...I wonder...", so I DID apply at bedtime....and it STILL worked the next day! It was FANTASTIC! Now...that is ONLY the case if you don't shower the next morning and shower it off. I showered at night...then applied, and did not shower in the morning.

Anyway, fantastic product. I have never seen it in the stores before, but you better believe I will be looking now. A++!!!

Review...Soft Lips Products...and GIVEAWAY!!!

CLOSED
Winner....#44 Julie!


I was given the opportunity to review some Soft Lips products!
Here is a little bit about them:
If you're looking for an affordable, 100% natural lip care product, Softlips has a product for you! The new Softlips PURE 100% Natural line includes lip glosses, tinted lip balms, lip butter, and a lip polish. The premium products couple 100% natural ingredients with light pleasant flavors and are free from preservatives, phthalates, sulfates, parabens, mineral oil and gluten.

Want some color without going overboard for the beach or those hot summer days, Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Gloss and Lip Tint are a perfect choice. Each provides hydrating, natural SPF15 for dry lips with zinc oxide while providing a natural glossy color with shine or sheer tinted color. The lip tint (suggested retail price of $3.99) and lip gloss (suggested retail price of $5.99) are available in three gorgeous shades- (Coral Charm, Natural Honesty, and Shell Pink).

For the nude lip look with a little shine, Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Butter is a great option. It goes on silky and leaves lips with a hint of shine while providing hydrating, natural SPF 15 protection with zinc oxide (suggested retail price of $5.99).

Dry, flaky lips are never pretty and often the end result after spending too much time in the sun or pool. Softlips PURE 100% Natural Lip Polish provides natural exfoliation for lips with organic coconut flakes and sugar and moisturizes, leaving lips looking healthy and smooth (suggested retail price of $5.99).

Softlips® PURE 100% Natural lip care products are available in the Naturals/Organic section at Target stores nationwide. For more information, visit
www.facebook.com/Softlips.
MY TAKE:
First off, I tried the Lip Polish. Now...many of you may not know, but I used to be a Mary Kay Sales Director...so any beauty item, I have a difficult time with because I am ALWAYS comparing to the Mary Kay brand...which I STILL think stands above and beyond. The lip polish they gave me to review was Organic Coconut and Sugar. It DEFINITELY exfoliated...and it didn't "taste" bad...though I didn't try to eat it. It really was a great product...however, if I was comparing it to the Mary Kay Satin Lips set...I would have to say that the Mary Kay Lip Mask is far better. I did enjoy the Soft Lips...and it DID do it's job, however, I felt a bit greasy on my lips after using it, and if I am exfoliating, I want the feeling of anything on my lips to come off with the exfoliant. If I were grading it, I would have to give it a C.
Next I tried the Pure Vanilla Berry Hydrating Lip Butter. This has SPF 15 in it and is a 100% lip butter. I have to say, I am very impressed with this product. I really like it...and it doesn't "taste" to shabby either. UNLIKE the Mary Kay lip balm, I DO like this one a bit better because of the taste and it has SPF 15 in it. As far as the dryness factor...so far so good. I see no problems and I tend to get dry lips.
The lip glosses and lip tints were equally great! I like that I get the smooth texture of a lip balm, plus the protection along with a subtle color. And the colors were GREAT! The lip butter and the lip glosses and tints get a definite A!!!
But...don't take my word for it!!! You can run out to Target and buy them yourselves, OR you can try to win a set of the new Softlips PURE 100% Naturals lip care line yourself!!!!

Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock, Review #2 and GIVEAWAY!!!!

CLOSED



This is my second review of this product, and I must say that nothing has changed since my first review. I think it is a wonderful product. It has given me no troubles at all and has kept my face from getting burned in that fierce sun. I have tested it while swimming, gardening, running, at the park...NO problems and NO burning on my face!!!

Just to review, Neutrogena UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock is a liquid sunblock for your face, that is so lightweight that you won't even know you applied it. It goes on your face easily and absorbs almost instantly. It is smooth, non-greasy and works well under makeup. It also contains Helioplex tecknology for superior broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection.

Reading the information on it makes me even more excited that it worked so well. This is a product that I will continue to use and will suggest to all of my family and friends. You can never be too careful when dealing with your skin in the sun. Too often people will put sunscreen on, but they figure with makeup, they are fine. That is not the case. If your makeup doesn't have sunscreen in it, then you will have no protection. This is JUST the protection you need!!! I am sold!!!

One lucky Hockey Mom reader will win a 1.4 FL OZ tube of their OWN UltraSheer Liquid Daily Sunblock!

The Celebration Shoppe, LLC Review!


Kim Byers from The Celebration Shoppe recently sent me a complimentary birthday e-package for my son's third birthday. It included straw holders, napkin holders, cupcake holders, cupcake "signs", etc. I chose the train package because Maj is a lover of "too'too's"! If you recall in an earlier post, I had reviewed their products...but that was before I was sent my own package. The products turned out GREAT! We had a great time putting them together. Now...granted...Maj's birthday isn't until December, but I wanted to get the stuff done so I could review it for her...that way if you needed anything for ANY holiday party or birthday party, you would have plenty of time to browse her website at http://www.thecelebrationshoppe.com/. She also has a blog, http://www.blog.thecelebrationshoppe.com/. I would really encourage everyone to check out her work! She has a great imagination and has a lot of great products and themes to choose from, and at a great price! I want to mention too...all of her e-packages came with instructions too...so there is no room for doubt!
Head on over...check it out...and tell me what you think!!!! :-)

We're half way there!!!

Just 15 more followers and I will do the Get Ready With Freddie DVD giveaway!!!!! Keep 'em comin' in!!! Spread the word!!!!!!!
