Mom24, JC, and Hannah! Congrats, everyone! Hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Disposal Genie

I was sent a neat little gadget to review called the Disposal Genie. Basically, it's a little stopper for the side of your sink that you have the garbage disposal on. It has holes that allow the food to still go down the drain but prevents the spoons and random small toys that may end up in your sink from getting chopped to pieces and destroying your disposal's blades.
I thought it might be kind of icky to have the piece that goes down the drain and is next to the food, but the Genie is pretty easy to clean and pops right in and out without any fuss. Basically, from me? The Disposal Genie gets a 2 thumbs up!

If you'd like to win your own Disposal Genie, here's what you can do:

Easy as pie.

Bucky Balls Giveaway!

Ok, the name is a bit, um, suggestive...

BUT. Bucky Balls ARE AWESOME. They're these little magnetic balls that you shape and twist together to make cool designs and basically drive yourself crazy with. My kids loved them...Justin is lining them up and then puts them into 2 rows to make them "zipper" up. It's really cool!

I would recommend not playing with them when your kids go to bed and you and your friend have had some wine, because, despite the bold warnings on the label,
You will be tempted to do this:
and this,Sporting the choker and ultimate nose ring...

Curse you, Bucky Balls and your ability to make 2 hours fly by!

Mine are in my china cabinet, JUST in case...

WalletBe review and GIVEAWAY!

I know that big purses seem to be all the rage for a lot of women these days, but for me? A small one is the way to go. I like being able to keep my items to a minimum and close to my side without a huge, hulking purse weighing me down. But one thing that both big and small purse lovers can agree upon is that we all need an organized wallet to stash our most important papers and money.

WalletBe wallets would like you to consider THEIR products for your next wallet purchase.I chose the Brown Zipper Croco Double-Wide Cell Phone Accordian (in Brown!) wallet. (holy moly, that's a mouthful!) It's one of those wallets that is stylish enough to be used as a small purse (my style!) and still able to be tucked into a big, honkin tote-bag thingy*. The best part for ME is the removable strap which actually makes it INTO a purse. That and the cell phone holder. I love a bitty pocket for cell phones! Plus, it looks just like the picture in person. That's a big deal to me when ordering online; Getting a product that is EXACTLY like what is represented on a website!

WalletBe would like for one reader to win a wallet of their choice from their large selection of styles and colors!

Ways to enter contest:

~ Just comment below and tell me which wallet from their line you would like to win!

~ Tweet this giveaway and link back. (1 a day, with a link for each, please!)

~ Follow me on Twitter.

~ Write about this giveaway on your own blog and link back.

~ Subscribe to my blog.

~ Link to this giveaway on Facebook and link back here!

Whew. Lots of ways to enter. I get tired EVERY time I have to type that out.**

We'll pick the winner in two weeks on Friday, May 21. Good luck!

*Yes. That's an actual term.
** YES. I know that I could just copy and paste but THAT sounds like even MORE work to me. Stop reading my aside comments, anyway. Go tweet about this giveaway so you can win a new wallet!

Mother's Day is in 1 week!!

Did you forget? You DID?!? Dude. You better step up. Don't forget all of those times Mom lovingly sprayed mind-numbingly painful Bactine on your scraped knees but followed up by softly blowing on your owie. Somehow, that always made it feel better... At least, until she stopped blowing and the Bactine began its process of burning with all of the firey flames of hell on your 8 year old knees again...

On second thought, maybe she doesn't deserve a present after all!

Seriously, though (before my mom reads this and sends me an email full of angry slashes and threats to not watch my kids on Saturday) she probably did some stuff that wasn't pure torture that you appreciate, right? Right. And she probably has tons of kitschy doodads cluttering up her living space, right? Absolutely. My recommendation this Mother's Day? Instead of gifting another dust-collector, give Mom the 4 pack from Mrs. Prindable's Apples .

I was delighted to take a tour of their facility and was then rewarded with a DELICIOUS and enormous Triple Chocolate Jumbo Caramel Apple. Holy, holy, holy... $22.95 for one apple may sound like a lot (and it did to me, too. I'm pretty dang tight with my cash!) but that apple fed me, my 3 kids, my pregnant* sister and 1 of her 2 kids. It then had ample leftover slices for my husband at home and a second helping for me when the kids were in bed that night! I'm telling you, the big apples are a dessert for a PARTY. This isn't your ordinary apple on a stick treat. The Jumbo's are ENORMOUS.(Almost as big as Corinne's head!)

That's why I recommend the 4 pack for your mom. She won't have to share her treat (unless you give her your best puppy-dog eyes) and they will last longer than one of the Jumbo's would after cutting it open. Plus, you can pick different varieties for her to choose!

*And we all know how much those pregnant sisters eat! ;)**

** Ok, ok. Before SHE sends me an angry email full of hormonal threats to never watch my kids again, I will say that she didn't eat any more than her share.***

*** Especially since I was so swift to stab her hand with my fork. Gotta be quick around those preggos... ;)
