Welcome to the Winning For Thanksgiving Giveaway Hop hosted by MamaNYC! We wanted to show our readers just how much we appreciate them, so we’ve gathered together and have some amazing prizes up for grabs.

This event will run from November 20-27th, which means you will have plenty of time to enter all of our giveaways. Good Luck & Happy Thanksgiving!

I am giving away V8 New Year Kit, with V8 product and fun items to get ready for the New Year. This is a perfect mix of beverages to help you get back into the healthy swing of things.

Hickory Farms: A Tasty Holiday Tradition {Giveaway}

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, so begins a very hectic time of the year. Company parties and catch ups with close friends and family seem to be at an all time high. Though I can sometimes feel rushed in between all the shopping and parties, I feel lucky knowing that I do have family and friends that I am more than happy to see and catch up with. Even if we haven’t seen each other much through the year, now is the time to sit back (normally with a wine or two!) and talk about the year’s highs and lows, how much the kids have grown and what we are looking forward to in the new year.

Besides catching up with friends and family, another of my favorite holiday traditions is trading dreams and wishes for the new year with my husband, again often over a wine! Hickory Farms Gift Baskets are great to have on hand for the unexpected family visitor or to bring along to your husband’s office Christmas party. You know, that time when you want to come bearing presents but you have no idea what to bring.

I got to try out the Family Favorites Gift Basket which is a classic collection of Hickory Farms Signature Beef Summer Sausages and creamy Farmhouse Cheddar and Smoked Cheddar cheeses, complemented by Olive Oil & Rosemary  Crackers. The Mini Melt Away Mints were an unexpected treat.

Welcoming Winter: Little Angels Bible Storybook Review and Giveaway

Welcome to the Welcoming Winter Giveaway Hop hosted by and running from Novemeber 6-14. After you read my review and enter my giveaway, make sure to check out all the other great giveaways listed below.

I reviewed Roma Downey’s Little Angel’s DVDs earlier this year and even had the chance to meet her in person. I love the premise of the Little Angels – 4 year old twins Alex and Zoe have eight little angels that look out for them. Each angel has a very distinct personality and teaches them family values and the importance of being kind and of sharing. Their are also basic learning skills such as ABCs, numbers and colors.

Roma has now come out with an illustrated Little Angels Bible Storybook with over 100 Bible stories for kids who love to discover new things about life, use their imagination, and have fun. Spirituality comes in many forms, and this is definitely one way to start to teach your child to be a more grateful and giving person.

My son enjoyed reading through the stories. Their are colorful  images on every page, I did feel like their might have been room for even more illustrations, maybe full page images? At 5 years old, my son still likes to see big full page illustrations – it’s not a complaint though, just a suggestion. The storybook has sections called “I learned that…” and “I can…” which are great talking points to follow up each story. The I can… section will actually give you a game or some other action to do that relates to the story, while the I learned that… that will help check that your child understood the reading. The stories also have a prayer that relate back to the story as well as a Bible verse.

I Say New York Sitcom, You Say “Friends”

Warner Bros. Pictures is proud to announce the release of Friends: The Complete Series Blu-Ray Box Set November 13th 2012. Friends is one of those sitcoms that I can watch over and over and find it funny every time. I can’t even remember when friends actually went off the air, because it seems to have played on repeat so many times over the years. I have to admit though, since I’ve moved to New York I don’t think I’ve even seen it once. But, Friends is still synonymous with New York for me. I vow one day to scope out the location of the Central Perk.

In celebration of this Blu-Ray Box Set release, Warner Bros wants to give one Mama Goes BAM reader a Friends prize pack with two oversized cappuccino mugs and a picture frame just like the one on Monica’s door.

Come back everyday to earn a different Friends character badge, unlock hidden badges, and earn awesome Friends content along the way.

Relive all your favorite Friends moments in these fun clips.  Each week a new clip will be unlocked. Come back every Monday to see a new clip and a new chance to enter to win.

Good Luck! Contest is open to US residents only 18+ and ends November 20, 2012.
