Keurig Platinum Giveaway at Mommy PR

Magic School Bus science kit giveaway ends 12/30

My kids love the Magic School Bus series -- My son even asked for a "Magic School Bus" birthday party this fall ("Into the Earth", to be exact!).  So I'm sure he'd love to get to play with one of the science kits being given away at Busy Mommy Media

Giveaways at The Suburban Jungle

Just entered two giveaways at The Suburban Jungle.  We've really been getting a lot of use out of our Wii lately, so it's about time there's a game for ME rather than just one for the kids.  So I've been trying to win the Cook or Be Cooked game:

You get extra entries for entering the other contests at The Suburban Jungle, so I decided it might be interesting to have a Butter Bell -- Have butter at the table all the time, no refrigeration required!

Zhu Zhu pet giveaway ends TONIGHT 12/18

My kids thankfully don't really know what Zhu Zhu pets are, but my son gave me a scare last week.  Someone asked him what he wanted for Christmas, he said, "A hamster!"  With our allergies, real ones are out, but a Zhu Zhu pet could fit the bill!

Bissell Pro Lite Review and Giveaway

If you haven't sensed the trend yet, this Mom needs a new vacuum badly!  I just found this giveaway over on Home Ec 101 for a Bissell Pro Lite vacuum.  Ends 12/12.

Dora the Explorer Holiday CD/DVD giveaways

My daughter (age 3), for better or worse, has been watching TV from a very early age thanks to her big brother (age 5).  Her 2nd word, after Daddy, was "Dohwa" (a.k.a. Dora).  To this day, Dora is still very dear to her.  So I'm sure she'd wear out DVDs if she had one!  Find giveaways at:

Hoover T-Series Rewind Vacuum *Giveaway* at For the Love of Baby

As many know, my vacuum is a lemon.  If it were in the budget, I'd sooo ask Santa for a new vacuum, but can't rationalize it when we bought our current vacuum a few years ago.  Therefore, I'm hoping Santa works his magic through a blog giveaway!  This one is for the  Hoover T-Series Rewind Vacuum.  Check out For the Love of Baby before Dec. 20th to enter.
