1 month away from my 1 year blog anniversary!

And the countdown starts! I already have some great giveaways lined up and I'll try to do 1 a week up until my bloggerversary starting June stay tuned!

total of 3 giveaways between now and my blogversary :) Unless of course I get sponsers...

Win a $50 gift card to Professional Kitchen Equipment in time for Father's Day!

With Father's Day coming up I have been wracking my brain for something to get my own Dad!

I don't know about you but I find it especially hard to buy for the men in my life. Men aren't always as vocal about what they want or need and there are only so many fishing lures you can buy them!

My Dad enjoys his grill, he enjoys it so much he won't let us take him out to lunch or dinner for Father's Day, he'd rather grill for us!

So I thought I'd cruise around the net to try and find him something!
Pro Kitchen Equipment caught my eye via a few giveaways they were doing via other bloggers, and boy do they have a wide selection of EVERYTHING kitchen related!

Pro Kitchen sells restaurant, bar, catering and kitchen home supplies and has pretty much everything I could possibly think of that would apply to cook or preparing any kind of food or drink!

They sell in bulk or by single items, steak knives by the dozen?!? How cool is that?

I surfed around the easy to navigate site, I got pulled in looking and found some stuff I'd like...but I was looking for my Dad!

They had a nice outdoor cooking section where I found something I had never seen or even thought of before! A nifty hot dog make-up tray!
My Dad usually just leaves them on the grill or lets them flop all over a plate, but this tray looks too neat! You put a hot dog bun in the slot, and then the hot dog and it holds it in place until you're ready to fix it up or eat it!

I also found this inexpensive cast aluminium hamburger press! My Dad loves to throw all kinds of seasoning and marinades into his burgers, and if he could press his own patties I bet there's all kinds of things he could come up with!

And right now if you go to their homepage and check out the right hand side bar Pro Kitchen has a contest going! Simply email the email listed in the contest box  and tell them why you deserve to win the $50 prize!

Simply as that!

But hurry the winner will be notified June 1st!

Win a Playtex Bra Makeover!

Do slipping straps, riding up backs, or not enough support have you ready to write a Dear John letter to your old bras? Apply for a Bra Makeover from Playtex! Seven out of 10 women are wearing the wrong size bra, which can result in an ill fit for the rest of their outfit, back and shoulder pain, as well as bruising and digging.

 Playtex recently launched, a site where women can go to apply for a bra makeover or nominate a friend. If chosen, the winner will be flown to New York to receive a Bra Makeover with style expert Alison Deyette. Deyette is a fashion and trend lifestyle expert who has been featured on Bravo's Millionaire Matchmaker and TLC's Ten Years Younger, as well as in print publications including Good Housekeeping, The Washington Post, and O Magazine.

I know I'll be applying for this makeover! It's so hard to find a good bra at 40DDD!

By posting this information, I am entered into a contest to win a free bra from Playtex. I did not receive any compensation for this post and thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.

General Mills and MyBlogSpark Sweet and Salty Snack Review and Giveaway (ends 5/23)

Thanks to My Blog Spark and GeneralMills because they provided me with the yummo general mills snacks, the information, and awesome prize pack to giveaway to my readers!

My family and I love receiving packages from myBlogspark, especially when there are enough treats to go around!

And boy was the box they sent me this time loaded!

You would have thought it was Christmas! We received 2 bags of Buffalo Bugles, 2 Cocoa puff chocolate bars, and 2 granola oat and dark chocolate bars.

We all sat around sampling the goodies and sharing our thoughts about them, well correction, my husband and daughter picked the ones they loved best and wouldn't share the rest!

I did however get to keep the granola bars.....LOL

I got a taste of both the bugle chips and the cocoa puff bar and both were a lil extreme to me, but I don't like stuff with too much of a kick (the hot buffalo chips) or anything too sweet ( the cocoa puff chocolate bar).

My husband loved his chips though, and my daughter who eats cocoa puff cereal for breakfast LOVED the chocolate bars.

It all worked out in the end really because I enjoyed the granola oat and dark chocolate bars, sweet, not too sweet, and granola makes me feel better about what I'm eating.

These yummy new snacks are exclusively available at convenience stores!

Which is a lil bit of a double edged sword, my daughter loves the Cocoa puff bars, and would prolly have them for breakfast if I let her, but a special trip to the local convenience store for the special treat would prolly make them all the more special!

Press Release Thingy

New General Mills products to satisfy those sweet and salty cravings sold exclusively at convenience stores:

Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate:
An indulgent cereal bar that combines the great taste of Cocoa Puffs cereal and chocolate into one decadent treat, Cocoa Puffs Treats Triple Chocolate is perfect for satisfying any sweet tooth.
