Nominate Your Favorite Nonprofit Organization to win a Walmart Grant

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Walmart. All opinions are 100% mine. I absolutely love when companies give back and that is exactly what Walmart is doing with their 12 Days of Giving Program.  They will be giving a total of $1.5 million in grants to local communities across the country.  These grants will provide the basic needs of people like food, diapers, coats, baby formula and cold weather clothing to those that need it.  And there are a lot of people who need it! But the best part of this program is that YOU can help those around you, in your own community because you can nominate a local nonprofit to receive one of these grants!  Now through...

Holiday Gift Idea – Remington Shaver

This post brought to you by Remington Hair Removal. All opinions are 100% mine. Some of the most hard to buy for people are the men in my life.  Between my husband, my father and my father in law, I am usually at a lose when it comes to what to buy them.    I try to find something they want or can use but it's pretty hard to do most years. Neither of our father's are into electronics and my husband buys the electronics that he wants, when he wants it so those are always out.   But one thing they all use and I know they don't buy for themselves is an electric razor.   So I think any of the  Remington 4 Series Electric Shavers would be...

Save on your Holiday Needs with Kraft

This post brought to you by Kraft Basket of Holiday Savings. All opinions are 100% mine. It's the first week of November which means the holidays are coming and they are coming fast.  I know that I'm so busy with everything else that they just creep up on me! So it's not to early to start preparing. Preparing for the holidays means you have to find more money in your budget.  While it's great to have everyone over for dinner, it still costs money to do so.  Kraft recognizes this and is there to help this holiday season.  I'm sure you've seen on many blogs all sorts of Kraft coupons but probably didn't think about how they can help with your...

Hillshire Farm New Commercial “Timer”

I wanted to share this new commercial from Hillshire Farm with you. They are going back to their farmhouse roots with a new commercial themed "Greatness is in the Details." The new ad shines a spotlight on what has long been a differentiator for Hillshire Farm Lunchmeat - quality, taste and craftsmanship. In the new ad titled “Timer,” you’ll see how the Hillshire Farm brand slow roasts its turkeys, and how every minute counts in creating delicious and great tasting cuts of lunch meat that make a Hillshire Farm sandwich stand apart. Watching this commercial makes me hungry! I love Hillshire Farm lunch meats and we usually get the Turkey as it's a favorite of my older daughter's.  It's nice...

Finding Nemo 3D In Theaters September 14th #DisneyInHomeBloggers

We are so excited because Finding Nemo 3D is in theaters tomorrow, September 14th.  We are probably going to see it this weekend, and I can't wait.  I think I'm more excited than the girls are.  LOL  Of course we've seen Finding Nemo many times but there is nothing like seeing it on the big screen.  And it wasn't until recently that my oldest decided she likes 3D movies so now she wants to see them all. My buddy Keri Lyn from She Saved was able to get a sneak peak of this on her trip to California last month and even though she saw it a million times as well, she said it was great to see it in 3D. Here is what she said..... "....when I attended the screening, I wasn’t expecting to be too...

Back To School Shopping at Dollar General

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. It's amazing how much the kids need when they start school.   Even as little as grade school.  I do not remember needed all these supplies when I was in grade school and I don't think it's because it was a long time ago and I forgot.  I honestly don't think we had a school supply list, but the kids today do! We are starting at a new school this year so we haven't received a supply list yet but I'll be checking with them next week to see what my girls need before it starts because I don't want them walking in empty handed if they aren't supposed to be. And of course then it comes...
