Sam's Club gift card giveaway at Jaina's Mom

When I won some Sam's Club gift cards around the holidays, I figured I'd pass them along to my inlaws, since they belong there.  However, I learned the secret that they work at Walmart too!  So I try to seek out the Sam's Club gift card giveaways whenever I can, since most people probably don't think about their acceptance at Walmart.  The newest giveaway is at Jaina's Mom, ending 6/14.

Global Resort Homes One Week Orlando Rental Giveaway

Last Easter Break (2009), we did something completely crazy in my opinion – We borrow my parents’ minivan and drove the kids to Florida from here in New Jersey!  My daughter, then 2-1/2, was much worse a traveler than my son, then 4-1/2.  We ended up giving her Benadryl multiple nights, including the overnight drives to and from Florida, because she just wouldn’t settle down!

Why did we drive to Florida?  To see my husband’s grand aunt near Daytona, as she had never met our daughter yet.  My husband’s aunt, who is closer to us in age than my inlaws, also lives down there with her kids who are close in age to ours.  So if you ask my kids what they liked best, it wasn’t the days we dragged them to Disney and Sea World.  It was the time spent just hanging out with “the Florida cousins”.

Unfortunately, over the past year, there has been friction in my husband’s family.  So while I’m sure the little ones would love to see each other, being able to stay somewhere other than the home of one of the family members would be ideal.  Renting a townhouse near Disney would be perfect, as we’d be close enough to daytrip to Daytona.  It’s not quite in the budget for this year though…  unless we win the rental!

My Sentiment Exact Lee is running a giveaway for a 7-day / 6-night rental in Orlando.  To check it out, here’s the link:

PORTABLE 12 foot POOL GIVEAWAY at The Ethertons

While at Toys R Us today, the kids and I were looking all the outdoor water toys for the upcoming summer season, including all the little pools.  My kids are 3-1/2 and 5-1/2 (but he's the size of a 7 year old!), so little kiddie pools aren't as much fun for the big guy.  My husband joked about getting one of the bigger pools with the filter, but I was like, "Yeah, right!"  We're planning on doing renovations this summer/fall, so God only knows what our yard situation will be...

But, for the heck of it, I searched Twitter for "pool giveaway" (and yes, I do similar searches all the time -- It's a great way to find less advertised giveaways).  Sure enough, I came across a tweet about The Etherton's giveaway of just what hubby joked about getting!  The giveaway ends 5/23.
