Uglee Pen Giveaway

In my search for the perfect pen I have discovered the Uglee Pen. Why it's called Uglee I am truly not sure it is a funny looking pen but certainly not ugly. This pen was designed, created and used by a real doctor. Dr. Lee designed this ergonomic pen to fit the way people use and hold pens.
It is great for people who experience pain or discomfort when they write. It is also recommended for children who are learning to write. Or students who have to take down lots of notes.

What I like besides the comfortable fit to my hands is how smooth it writes. This is not a pen you have to work at to get a nice smooth pretty print, it flows and is easy to hold.You can buy your pen Here and they also sell the ink cartridges at an affordable price with a low shipping cost!

Also please enter to win your own pen by completing the easy entry. The rest are optional do one or do them all that is up to you!

My Hikes Giveaway

What is a My Hikes? It is a super fun, super cute clip that you can use as a temporary hem on your child's pants. I always dreaded putting a hem in pants I knew my children would grow into and that is why the My Hikes are so cool with a simple cuff and clip they are off and ready to go.

Libby put them on her pants and ran all over the place, those clips did not budge, not when she bounced, skipped and played. They really got my vote of confidence. She loved the cute and whimsical 3D butterfly that I chose for her. Go here and check out all the My Hikes clips then leave me a note telling me which ones you like the best!

Libby and I give then 2 thumbs up for style and originality. We also give them 2 more thumbs up for practicality. You can buy yourself a pair on line! Be sure to enter the giveaway because My Hikes is giving away a set to one of my lucky readers! To enter all you have to do is complete the easy entry the rest is optional do one or do them all that is up to you.
Many thanks to Coupon Girls LACYN's Extreme Couponing Parsimonious Pash,Mom Goes Wild,  Christina Serrano Independent Avon Sales Representative  and Powered by Mom for hosting this review and giveaway.

We bought our first home here in Virginia. Irving proudly served 9 years in the US Marine Corps, and is now medically retired, due to injuries obtained in Iraq. He is my best friend, my rock, and my soul mate. We fit so well together. Its only been 2 years, but it feels like 10! I cannot wait to grow old with this man. I am blessed!

Asking for your help...Please Read!

This is hard for me to even do. I am used to stepping up and helping others, not asking for help from others. Last Tues I went to the ER with a high fever and pain, after 11 months of pain, tests, and unanswered questions. After running tests, they found my gall bladder was infected and full of stones and needed to come out. On top of the infected gall bladder, I had other issues they found that need to be dealt with at a later time. Wednesday I had the surgery, somewhat sucessfully. They ran into complications and had open my stomach above the belly button instead of laparoscopic, through the belly button, as planned. I have a total of 18 staples on my stomach closing the incisions. I was released to go home Thursday afternoon, but four hours later I was rushed back in the hospital. I was told the incisions were now infected. Just a side note...I do not have health insurance, so none of these hospital visits are being covered... So I have been home since Friday. Last night I noticed something that looks like Staph infection and now I am debating if I should go back to the hospital and be seen again. Anyway, I am ordered not to work for a month, which is tough for me to swallow since I have been working since I was 14 and currently holding 5 jobs. And I had to take the term off school, which I know was for the best, but still not something I wanted to do. Below are pictures, please do not view if you have children around or have a weak stomach.
Anyway, I am asking for help. I have sponsored a raffle with a beautiful Avon ring (RV $50) for the first place winner and Footworks and Nail Polish (RV $10)for 2nd place winner. Winner of the ring can choose between sizes 7 8 or 9. Raffle tickets are $2 each and there is no limit on how many you can purchase. I truly appreciate those of you who are taking the time to read this and those who choose to help me out! The link for the raffle can be found below. Just comment there with your paypal and how many tickets you would like or gift the money to If you wish to just donate, is my paypal. I really really appreciate you all. Thank you so much.

Tastefully Simple GIVEAWAY

Deb Armus, Independent Tastefully Simple Consultant, started selling Tastefully Simple because she loved their products. "I fell in love with Tastefully Simple at my very first taste-testing party. The food was so delicious and I couldn't believe how easy it was to prepare. Being such a fan of the products made it an easy decision for me to become a consultant. Now I can get the food I love at a discount, and have fun sharing it with others. The fact that I make money at this is an added bonus! It is really a wonderful product line. That's why I signed up to sell it. Everyone eats! It's so good, and then they want more! "

Recently, My family and I had the chance to try the Tastefully Simple Tonight Collection. The collection includes all of the following tasty products:

Artichoke & Spinach Warm Dip Mix Corn, Black Bean Salsa Dried Tomato & Garlic Pesto Mix Fiesta Party Dip Mix® Garlic Garlic™ Onion Onion™ Seasoned Salt BONUS Meal Planner BONUS Freezer Labels

I have used the kit almost every night and my family LOVES it! My Favorite is Tastefully Simple's Seasoned Salt. It is so flavorful.

We tried several of the recipes that Tastefully Simple have listed on their site. The kids decided that their favorite was Taco Terrific!! It was so easy to make and is now one of my favorite taco dinner recipes.

Taco Terrific! Ingredients 1 lb. ground beef 1 Tbsp. Fiesta Party Dip Mix™ 1 Tbsp. Onion Onion™ 8 oz. tomato sauce 1/4 cup water 1 tsp. cumin Taco shells

Directions Serve it tonight: Sauté ground beef in a large skillet with next 2 ingredients until beef is no longer pink; drain fat. Stir in next 3 ingredients; simmer on low for 10-15 minutes. Fill taco shells with warm meat mixture. Top with diced tomatoes, sour cream, shredded lettuce and shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired. Makes 5-6 servings. Serve it later: Place cooked, cooled taco meat in a resealable plastic bag; freeze until served. Thaw completely; heat and serve as directed above.
A little bit of each item goes along way. Just one teaspoon of Garlic Garlic is equivalent to about 1 clove fresh garlic. That's almost 33 cloves in one jar! One tablespoon of Onion Onion is equal to about 6 tablespoons fresh onion. That's the equivalent of 10 small onions in one jar! Tastefully Simple's Seasoned Salt is all natural and one of the most versatile products in their line. It is perfect for meats, veggies, eggs, pasta and more.

Wanna win it??? Independent Tastefully Simple Consultant, Deb Armus, is giving one of our readers the chance to try Tastefully Simple for themselves. One winner will receive The Essential 4 Make Your Kitchen Complete Kit.

The Essential 4 includes:

Bountiful Beer Bread Mix® Value Pack Garlic Garlic™ Onion Onion™ Seasoned Salt FREE: The Essential 4 Recipes
