Chain of Friends Sweepstakes!

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hampton Hotels. All opinions are 100% mine.

I admit I LOVE to enter sweepstakes! You just never know if today could be your lucky day! Now on to the fun!

Wouldn’t you love to get away? Maybe just even for the night, one simple night. With two little ones at home I rarely ever ‘go away’. If I had the chance I would love to take an overnight trip to Virginia and hang out with my girlfriends. Sometimes I feel I ’need’ that grown-up time with my girlfriends. It’s always nice to catch up and actually talk to adults. I’m thinking pedicures, manicures, shopping? Hey, maybe we can even squeeze in massages! Doesn’t that sounds lovely?

If that sounds lovely to you, than you should definitely check out the Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes! They are offering a FREE weekend at any Hampton hotel! You can Hampton Chain of Friends Sweepstakes daily to increase your chances! So, give it a try! It could just be your lucky day! It took me literally 30 seconds to fill out the entry form!

This sounds like a GREAT giveaway! I decided to browse the website and LOVE the pool! I can see myself swimming in there & enjoying the quietness. I’m definitely up for a chance to win a free weekend away. It’ll be nice to actually sleep in and not worrying about the ‘clean-up’. If you were to win where would you go? Who would you take with you?

Back to School!!!

 Back to school time! This year BOTH of my boys are in school. Corey is in pre-k & lil eric in 1st grade.  This is going to be quite an adjustment for myself. For the past 6yrs I've always had one or both of them home with me.  Im sure with time I will get used to being 'alone' but for now Im counting down till I can go pick them up! 10mins left!  This seems to have been a long day.  Cant wait to hear their stories :)

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Boost Mobile. All opinions are 100% mine.

Need a new cell phone? Trying to decide which company to go with?  So many cell phone companies have such good marketing ploys.  For many people there is the added stress of who to pick, who has the best plan, and which company is easiest to function with.

I recently checked out the Boost Mobile.  One thing that immediately caught my eye is there are NO contracts. That is a big plus in my book. Some of the other cell phone providers I read about make you sign a two year contract.  Who wants to be tied down to a cell phone provider for two years? Boost Mobile is a nation wide network that also has amazing cell phone plans.  Currently, you can get unlimited talk, text,  & web for $50 a month! Now that is a great deal! To make payments easier for their customers you can pay online, in person, or by phone for no added cost.  Ever feel like you make forget to pay the bill? Sign up for their worry free automatic payments!  You can use this with your debit or credit card. Not only that but you can also pay a friend or family members bill. 

Another great 'gift' Boost Mobile offers is Re-Boost.  Re-Boost allows you to add money to your friend or family's boost mobile account.  Can anyone say TEENAGERS? Check out the  Blackberry that is now offered through Boost Mobile. You can update your facebook, myspace or twitter account directly from the phone! Most people I know are on facebook so I think its an amazing feature to have! These phones are super easy to activate and offer many wonderful features

Re-Boost is definately something I will look into.  My brother-in-law is a tough young man to shop for.  However, paying his bill or even a portion of it would make a nice & simple gift from me.

My husband has been asking for a dvd player for the garage so he can workout there vs in the house with 2 little boys running around.  The cheapest I could find a dvd player was for $29.XX.....that's just plain ridiculous.  I went to walgreens tonight & they were just putting these dvd players on CLEARANCE!!!!!!  $9.99!!!!!  I couldnt beat that price & snatched it right up ;)  Couldnt have picked a better time because my husband said by the end of the week he was getting a dvd player even if it was almost $30 bucks, lol.

Harris Teeter.

First let me say Im slightly annoyed.  I was going to get the deal 2 Peter Pan & Welchs Grape Jelly @ .97 each (after coupons = FREE).  Well, for this deal you had to be an E-VIC customer...not just VIC.  I had NO clue what the difference was.  Apparently, E-VIC is your email attached to your VIC card which would then show up at the register and would have given me the correct price. So I paid $1.40 for 2 Peter Pan Peanut Butters & 1 Welch's Grape Jelly....when they COULD have been FREE:(

Breyers Yo Crunch = FREE
2 Peanut Butter & 1 Welch's Grape Jelly = $1.40
2 L.A. Looks Hair Gel = FREE
