Bringing Memories to Life with Snapfish by HP

I received promotional items including Snapfish by HP giftcards to use as I wanted and decided to share one gift card with you! Hopefully those of you who are mother’s had a wonderful day on Sunday! I know for me, even after 10 years not living in the same country as my Mother, it still feels weird. She is in Canada and I have lived in New Zealand and now the US. But, it is nice to have my own kids to enjoy Mother’s Day with. Mr P made me a wonderful card and cute photo with his teacher at kindergarten. Little Miss wasn’t sure what was going on, but she knew that lots of kisses and cuddles were in order!

No matter if you have lots of photos from Mother’s Day, or whether you will be taking lots of photos of fun in the sun over the next few months, here is your chance to enter to win a Snapfish by HP gift card for 50 free prints. If like me you take a gazillion photos a day I know you’ll appreciate this offer.

And as a thank you for being part of this community this is a real simple comment to win giveaway. Just leave a comment with what/who you would print pictures of if you won 50 free prints. That’s it! Comments will close on Monday, May 20 at 8PM EST and the winner will have 24 hours to claim their prize from the time that they are emailed, or else I reserve the right to choose another winner.

Good luck!

Say Happy Mother’s Day with Wahl’s Hot/Cold Therapy Massaging Gel Pack

This review of the  Wahl’s Hot/Cold Massaging Gel Pack was made possible by Mom Spark Media.  All thoughts are my own. It couldn’t have come at a better time, as a metaphorical pat on the back for all the strength training and running I have been doing. I have a confession to make…I actually like running and I get into periods of time where I love to really get my cardio on! Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred is my weapon of choice at the moment. But, my second confession is that I am terrible at stretching. I know, I know, stretching is so important after any physical activity. I actually had my nails done last week at a nail bar just so I could sit in the massage chair for the amount of time that it takes them to make my battered feet look pretty. Sad, eh?

Not that a massage should replace stretching, but it does help. Their is a very good selection to choose from at www.wahlmassagers.com and this nifty little number prices in at just under $25 (MSRP 24.99) but packs a soothing punch. 



Introducing PLAY-DOH Board Books for Growing Minds

Thanks to Mom Spark Media, I received 5 PLAY-DOH books published by Silver Dolphin Books for review. These books have been a fantastic edition to our house where Little Miss (18 months) is learning new words everyday. The best part is that Mr P (5 years old) can read the books to her and so far they have enjoyed some quiet time together – him teaching her from the books.

As soon as the books arrived, Little Miss grabbed them from my hand and anxiously wanted to read them. They are colorful, sturdy and the glossy feel that comes with board books obviously feels good in her hands. The fact that animals feature throughout the book is great, because while she is learning concepts like numbers and colors, she also chimes in with animal noises. Each book is somewhat different in its concept as well as one is a lift-the-flap, which Little Miss loves the most.
