The "Oops, I forgot!" contest

I'm going crazy getting ready for a move that just keeps moving itself up on the calendar, Buttercup has been sick for a week, I'm getting ready for a week-long vacation in a few days for both me and the sick kid, and the Salvation Army now knows me by name.

And in the midst of this little cluster-bleep, I still have a few blogs like this one that just keep getting pushed off of the priority pile. Oh, and those pesky little holidays like Valentine's Day? Totally forgot about it! (No joke, either....the Hubby's been out of state for three months!)

I know I can't be the only one who woke up today only to realize that I messed up by forgetting to get a nice gift in the mail for my Hubby. (Or to even buy one, to be perfectly honest...)But at least he forgot my gift, too, which makes us even and takes us both off of the hook.

But what about you? Do you need a special something to get back in the good graces of your special Valentine? Even if it is a day (or four) late, a well thought-out gift that shows how much you care every day of the year may take the sting out of not having had anything to open on the actual calendar day.

My suggestion is the Personalized Photo Book from CVS Pharmacy. And I've got one coupon for a lucky winner for one 6X8 photo book which will fit up to 54 pictures for $12.99.



This is really such a great idea and CVS offers customers choices from $5.99 to $14.99 with the option of adding up to ten additional pages. You bring in your USB drive, CD, or memory card, choose your photos, rearrange your photos on the template, add some text if you like, and select your desired backgrounds. And voila! An perfect belated Valentine's Day gift.(Or early Easter present...depending on how you want to play this one.)

So here's the deal. I want to get this coupon in the mail for one lucky winner as soon as possible. All I need you to do is leave me a comment WITH YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS!!!! That's it. You can tweet the contest or blog about it for an extra entry if you'd like, but be sure to leave me a separate comment for each entry.

Contest ends at noon on Monday, Feb. 16, which will give me plenty of time to get this coupon in the mail for our 4 p.m. mail call.

So what are you waiting for?

Bare with me, please!

Hello all!
I know I haven't been posting as often as usual and it isn't for lack of great products to review.
If you aren't following me on Twitter already and have the background, I'm in the middle of planning a cross country move. With choosing a new home in Arizona, choosing a mover, sorting through my belongings, making all of the rest of the necessary arrangements AND taking care of a sick Buttercup, I'm just a tad bit behind.
I'm going to try and catch up on my winners for contests tonight and hopefully have time to write up a review or two.
Thanks to everyone, my readers and incredible sponsors, for being patient with me!

Pretty in Pink!


I love me some boon and I know you do, too!

And do I have a boon for you! I'm sure you are aware that the boon Flair High Chair is now available in a sweet pink design from Amazon for the little princess in your life.

Aside from the updated boost of color, all the flair that makes the Flair the rockin; high chair that it is are the same:
* a chemical resistant, waterproof pad that removes easily for cleaning
* a five-point harness
* a sturdy pedestal that slides easily under tables without scratching floors (and makes it look just plain awesome)
* a pneumatic lift allowing for height adjustment
* and it's free of all that bad stuff like BPA, Phthalatets and PVC. (And this is seriously the most important consideration, in my opinion.)

So you want one right? In pink and white? Or perhaps blue and white? Or would you prefer the boon signature orange and white?

You tell me...Boon is generously offering one lucky reader a Flair High Chair in the color of their choice to celebrate the new Pretty in Pink chair now available.

To enter, just leave me a comment telling me what color your would prefer if you won!

Entries will be accepted until midnight, EST, March 3, 2009 and the winner will have four business days from the announcement date to contact me with their information or an alternate will be selected.
