Brugo Mug Review and Giveaway





How many times have you had that perfectly hot cup of coffee ready to drink, but you have to run and take one of your children somewhere? Or how about when you go grocery shopping and it is 100 degrees and you need something to drink to keep you cool? This happens to me all the time.

I was so excited to try the Brugo Mug. I can't even tell you how many times I have burnt my mouth, tongue and roof of my mouth on a hot mug of coffee. The Brugo Mug has come up with a revolutionary way that you don't burn your mouth! How does it do it? With a patented Temperature Control Chamber. It stays nice and warm below the chamber, but cools the top portion so you can drink it without burning your mouth. It is genius!





The Brugo Mug comes in 13 faboulous colors with the Executive, Jazz and Sports Collections. They are also perfect for anyone in your family. Right now www.brugomug.com is running a special. 25% off when you buy 2 or more and free shipping on orders of $50.00 or more.






One lucky reader has the chance to win one of these wonderful mugs!

This One Goes Out To The One I Love


Happy 12th Anniversary to my best friend and love of my life.
(Really, it's only been 12? Feels like 20)

Thank you for being a wonderful father to our four daughters.
(Didn't we say we were only going to have 2 kids?)

Thank you for loving me for who I am after all these years.
(OCD, Depression, Anxiety, GAD, Agoraphobia etc.)

I love you even more after all these years.
(Too bad I didn't know about the Dungeons & Dragons, video games and comics!)

You love me even if I have my weaknesses.
(kittens, babies, chocolate and wine)

I love you despite yours.
(the newest electronic, video games and more video games)

But, in all seriousness - I love you more with each passing day. You are not only my best friend but my soul mate. You and I have created such a beautiful life together. You are the love of my life.

Happy Anniversary, baby. I love you........

Munchie Mug Review and Giveaway





My two year old is a snacker. Actually, all four of my girls are snackers. But, my two year old is the kind of snacker that leaves her trail ALL AROUND THE HOUSE. The dog doesn't mind so much but, I sure do. I must vacuum at least once a day if not more. It gets really old.

When I was given the opportunity to review Munchie Mug I was so excited! Finally a way to contain her snacks!







The Munchie Mug is a spill-resistant cup for infants and toddlers. It is BPA and phthalate free and made in the USA. The top screws off so that toddlers cannot take it off and make a mess. It also comes with an airtight lid so the snacks stay fresh. The best part of the cup is the overlapping material on the inside that doesn't allow the snacks to fall out! It really works and is amazing. Finally something that doesn't spill all over my floor!



Features:
  • Secure Screw-On Top with Easy Grip Handle
  • Soft fabric closure for sensitive little hands
  • Easy to clean: Top Rack Dishwasher Safe
  • Great for healthy snacking: Cereals, dried fruits, crackers, etc.
  • Additional stay-fresh lid included for keeping snacks fresh when mug is not in use
  • Economically friendly: Made in the United States of America
  • Child friendly: Made of all FDA food grade compliant materials
  • Environmentally friendly: Made of 100% recyclable materials & eliminates waste created by plastic snack baggies that are used once and thrown away. Use the Munchie Mug, again, again, and again!!!



The true test was on my two year old. She was a little apprehensive about the cup at first but, when she got her cracker out she thought it was the coolest thing ever!






Look Mom!! No snacks on the floor...only in my mouth!

Winner of The Easy Lunch Box!!


Congratulations to Christi from The Williams Family Blog!! She won the Easy Lunch Box Giveaway. Make sure to go visit this incredible Mom of 9!!!!!

Eco Friendly Lunch Box Review and Giveaway - Closed




If your house is anything like mine you have a cabinet that stores your plastic containers and lids. In my house not only do I have a sock fairy that steals one out of a pair from the dryer, but I also have a lid fairy that just leaves me with containers. This tends to be a HUGE problem in my house because I am packing multiple lunches every day. My kids and my husband pack their lunches and I end up going through way too many ziplocks because I can never find the lids!!

I was so excited to have the opportunity to try Easy Lunch Boxes. They were even kind enough to let me choose the color purple. (Sorry honey, but we do have four girls!)




My husband got to try it out first. Since he packs his lunch every day to save money and eat a healthy lunch we were able to pack his lunch with little effort at all. It cut down the time it took to pack everything with the wonderful, convenient compartments. The best part it that it can be microwaved at work when he brings leftovers. He absolutely loved it and now I will have to get him his own in a "boy" color!

The girls and I took it along on a picnic lunch this week and it was wonderfully easy to use. My two year old was able to get the top off the compartments. It kept our lunch fresh and crisp.



I am really impressed with Easy Lunch Boxes. I am also really happy that they are eco- friendly. They are BPA free, SAFE and environmentally friendly.

Here is a little more about the product:

Easy Lunchbox container: The bottom has three compartments to hold an entree or sandwich and two side dishes. The fitted lid (which comes in 4 colors) covers all three compartments at once. No more squished sandwiches or mismatched lids! The containers fits perfectly inside the roomy EasyLunchbox custom carrying bag. There is plenty of room left over to throw in extra snacks.

If you are looking for an affordable, easy, environmentally friendly way to pack lunch - this is it!

WIN IT! EasyLunchboxes.com was kind enough to offer one of my readers one set of compartments and one lunch bag in your choice of color!

HOW TO ENTER -MANDATORY ENTRY - Visit Easy Lunchboxes.com and read more about the product. Leave me a comment with your favorite Cooler Bag color.

EXTRA ENTRIES - Please leave a separate comment for each entry and make sure to leave your email address!!

Sunday Morning Surprise

So, like every Sunday morning, I log into my blog to return comments, look around and make posts for the week. Today a picture caught my eye from my Google Friends Connect. At a quick glance a picture in there looked like a porn picture. I clicked on their profile AND IT WAS!!

This particular blog, which I will not link to, has several adult orientated blogs. Most of them sell female adult products. My question:

REALLY? WHY WOULD YOU PUT YOUR CRAP HERE! THIS IS A FAMILY FRIENDLY SITE!

Needless to say, I am completely annoyed! I looked up how to remove a member from Google Friend Connect. In case this happens to you, this is what you do:


2. Sign into your account

3. Under the Moderate tab you can view and delete members that don't belong.

Storing Your Coupons


My friend Ashley over at Closet of Free Samples is having guest posts about coupons, so I told her I would love to write a post about how I organize my coupons.

I get a lot of crazy looks when I go to the grocery store. Some are curious and others are almost annoyed with my coupon book. What they don't know while they are staring at me is that I have four children and I have six mouths to feed every week. It gets crazy expensive and I am always trying to find ways to shave down the grocery bill.

I started with a small plastic file a few years ago. It was alphabatized from A to Z. I out grew that pretty quickly and found that is was too hard to find coupons in. I thought about it for awhile and had to come up with a way that I could see all my coupons and have them organized.

Here is what you need:


1. A three ring binder.

2. Baseball card holders

3. Dividers and Labels









I took all of my coupons and put them into categories. I choose these particular categories because they are the ones I use the most.

* Breakfast
* Snacks
* Dairy
* Rice/Pasta/Bread
* Canned Goods
* Baking
* Meat
* Medicine
* Toiletries
* Household
* Cleaners



















I bring my book everywhere I go. You never know when you will need it! The easier you make it for yourself, the more likely you are to use your coupons to their full potential.
