Got some great goodies in our mailbox last week.

*Free bag when we purchased the Teen Vogue subscription for our little beauty guru arrived. She was super excited to get this. It is the checkered bag in the background.

*Another book from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library arrived for the pipsqueak. She so loves seeing her name on the mail and I so love that it was free to enroll her and she gets a great book every month. For more information on the Imagination Library, visit Dolly Parton's Imagination Library here.

*I received my baby onesie cookie cutter as well. Although this was not free, I did not think $.99 was too bad for a great metal cookie cutter. You can find great deals like these on

* Also received some more pamphlets and coupons for formula from Similac and Gerber.

*And the most exciting thing for me was that my battery rebates cards came in the mail. I got $8 back for every three codes I entered on their site, so I received $16 back on something we needed anyway (and of course I used coupons to buy those batteries). To learn more about this promotion you can visit Energizer Pump Up the Power. This promotion ends 08.30.14.

We got a few nice things in the mail that week.

I have found a new site I may be hooked on. It is called Points2shop and I have already in two days cashed in my points for 3 prizes from Amazon. A lot of their prizes are directly from Amazon, which is a really cool feature and they have so many options. You can even cash in your points for real cash. The best part is I don't have to spend hours at the computer trying to earn points. So far it has been quick and easy. Sound interesting? You can check it out here.

Freedom Day USA


So I really was under a rock or something, because I apparently missed something called Freedom Day yesterday. There was a large spread on the back page of our local newspaper about it today and I just thought it was really great and had to share. Freedom Day, in case you are wondering, is a day when businesses across the country join together to show their appreciation to active-duty members fo our armed forces and their families and our veterans. It is a day for these businesses to offer items for free to these members to show their support and gratitude.

The best part of the spread in our paper was that there was an address listed to send a "Thank You" to an American military veteran. The address is:

Kid Scoop
PO Box 1802
Sonoma, CA  95476

We will be sending out cards this weekend, even though we are late, to show our gratitude for all they have done to protect our freedoms.

Interested in learning more about this great program? Visit Freedom Day USA for more information.

Locker Decorations

Ok, so I know locker decoration prices at retail stores are enough to scare the pants off of me. So I was determined to give my daughter some cute decorations without breaking the bank. That is where our supply of craft items came into play. We looked through all those craft supplies to find things to make great decorations without even having to leave our house. The best part is that we got to spend the time together to make them (just don't tell my teenager that, she may rethink the next project LOL).

The first thing we did was to make a couple of magnets to hold notes in her locker. We just used regular buttons for these, adorned with some plastic flowers we found floating around in the craft box, as well as some ribbon on top for cute bows, and magnets on the back to keep them in the locker.

locker #1.jpg           locker #2.jpg

locker #3.jpg        locker #4.jpg

Our second part of the locker decoration project was to do a picture ribbon. She wanted pictures in her locker, but wanted something a little different than just the laminated pics with magnets on the back. Enter the ribbon box to the rescue. We just selected a length of ribbon, laminated the pics she wanted, hot glued them to the ribbon and placed magnets at each of that ribbon length. We did add a pink bow to the top of the ribbon to give it a little something extra (the top magnet is actually attached to that bow). We also made a smaller one picture ribbon to highlight one of the few pictures we have of my girls together.

                             locker #6.jpg

The last item we made for her locker was a magnetic name plate. We simply found a pattern she liked online, printed it to cardstock and added her name. We placed ribbon around the name and the border of the name plate and laminated the entire piece. We then placed a magnet at the top and bottom of the laminated name plate and it was locker ready.

                       locker #7.jpg

Below is a picture of our finished locker projects. She was happy with them, and I thought they turned out great and loved that they did not cost us anything. I do believe her friends have even given her compliments on her locker.

Rocket Launch

                        NASA's Moon Probe Launch Friday Visible from US East Coast

So I am all about different life experiences for my daughter. When I saw information online about the rocket launch on the East Coast on Friday night, I was all over it since it was launching in Virginia and that just so happens to be where we are. However, I saw this information at 10 am this morning, what were the odds that I was going to remember it. Well, let's just say I am so glad that I noticed a friend's post on Facebook to remind me and we made it outside in time to witness this. Experiences like this are the best memories my daughter will have as she gets older I believe and I am so glad that I got to share this with her. Who else got to see it? Did you miss it? That's ok, you can learn all about it by visiting Yahoo! news.
