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 can get those at Hy-Vee for $13.00. If you have never been to the Rose before, I encourage you to 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 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.

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

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!

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…

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 wil…

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

(Pictures above - My mom and dad, and my mom and her best friend Coralee who also died of breast cancer.)

You may know that one in eight women will be stricken with breast cancer in her lifetime. What you may not know is that you can help these women and thousands of others in the fight against breast cancer. My mother lost her battle last January….but I will continue to walk and raise awareness in her memory.

On October 3, 2010 I will be participating in the Komen Nebraska Race for the Cure in Omaha with a great team of dedicated people. Join the fight by registering as part of our team, Mama’s Family, or by supporting our efforts with a pledge contribution. The money raised through the Race will fund vital education, screening and treatment programs for underserved women in our own community and support the national search for a cure.

We need your support! Every step counts! Again, if you don’t wish to be part of our team, the pledge e-mail is below. If you can’t pledge, I TOTALLY unde…

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 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 doubt about it!
Since then, we have heard from several other families how much they like using the "Butt Paste". The name still m…

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

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…

Get Ready With Freddie Dvd Review and Giveaway!

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 She also has a blog, 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 grea…
