21 Cheerios 100,000 Book Giveaway! {Giveaway} CLOSED

According to My Blog Spark, "Access to books is essential to reading development. However, did you know that over 80 percent of childcare centers serving low-income children lack age-appropriate books? And a recent study shows that the ratio of books per child in middle income neighborhoods is 13 to 1, while in low-income neighborhoods, the ratio is 1 age-appropriate book for every 300 children."

It hits me even more now that I have children. I wan
t nothing more than for my children to grow up with the best of materials for learning. The Cheerios family of cereals, First Book and Jon Scieszka, author of the popular "Trucktown" series and other children´s books, have joined together to deliver 100,000 books to community-based programs serving children in need. They would love your help to help bring the proper books to less fortunate child care centers around the United States! All you have to do is go online with your child and test your combined knowledge of children´s books by answering trivia questions related to "Trucktown" and other great children´s books.

For every trivia question answered correctly, you can cast one vote for the state you would like to receive books. The five states receiving the most votes will get 20,000 books each, for a total of 100,000 books. Visit to test your knowledge and start voting.

I received an assortment of books along with a box of yummy Frosted Cheerios and a $25 Gift card for Barnes & Noble. The books were a hit with my two year old. She loved looking at the pictures while her daddy and I read the stories. Not too mention that they also were written in Spanish as well. They were all great stories! With our gift card to Barnes & Noble we bought The Elf on the Shelf Book set, along with the activity Book. I love this tradition already!


To promote awareness about the 100,000 Book Giveaway, Cheerios (through MyBlogSpark) is providing one lucky reader a 100,000 Book Giveaway prize pack. It includes an assortment of books from Cheerios, one box of the many varieties of Cheerios cereals, and a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.

0 Disney's Fairies 3 Tier Storage Organizer and Toy Box {Review}

A couple months ago I told you about my upcoming review of the Disney's Fairies 3 Tier Storage Organizer & Toy Box. I feel it is now time to write my review on this cute product.

First of all, let me say that CSN Stores has so many products to offer! From home office furniture to children’s furniture and toys.

My product arrived quickly and was very well packaged! My daug
hter was so excited to get this big box in the mail and couldn't wait to open it!
I opened the box, got the directions, and laid everything out to make sure it was all there. This is where I ran into a little problem. When looking at the directions to make sure I had everything....I noticed that the letters listed with the pieces were not the same as the letters actually on the pieces. In other words, if I was a customer who counted on those letters to match everything up, it would have been a disaster. I cannot say that every one will be this way though! I had this put together in about an hour. I was not able to put the wheels on the bottom of the toybox because I couldn't hand screw them in and I did not have screw gun handy. My husband brought his home from work and I put them on very easily! So have a screw gun handy, or be VERY strong!

1 November is Diabetic Eye Disease Awareness Month

My Grandma has diabetes, and has had eye problems along with it. I figured this is a great way to raise awareness about how important it is to get a dilated eye exam annually. With the widget below, you can pledge your commitment to getting an eye exam
and also enter emails to help commit friends and family. You can also read important
facts about eye disease, post the widget and/or support badge onto various social
media sites (i.e. Facebook, Twitter and more), and find the closest Eye M.D.
by zip code.

More than 24 million people in the United States have diabetes and less than
half are not getting a recommended dilated eye exam. People with diabetes are
25 times more likely to become blind than people without diabetes. However, 90
percent of severe vision loss from diabetes can be avoided by visiting your ophthalmologist
annually and by controlling your diabetes.

Thanks to Rocket XL for the widget and information provided here!

46 {CLOSED}My Little Pony "Twinkle Wish Adventure" DVD {Review & Giveaway}

I fondly remember watching and playing with "My Little Ponies" when I was a little girl. I am so happy to have two little girls now that will get to do the same. Hasbro has come out with a new My Little Pony DVD.

"Twinkle Wish Adventure"
Twinkle Wish Adventure follows Pinkie Pie and all her pony friends on a fun-filled adventure as they discover that friendship can make wishes come true. All the ponies cant wait for the Winter Wishes festival where the Wishing Star grants each pony one special wish. But when the Wishing Star disappears, they go on a journey to find it. Will they make it back in time for the festival? Find out by joining Pinkie Pie, and all her pony friends on this magical journey of discovery.

Thanks to Hasbro and SHOUT! Factory, we had the pleasure of reviewing this new DVD! Since I opened the package yesterday, my 2 yr. old daughter, who has many My Little Ponies, was chomping at the bit to watch it. "Watch Ponies!" "Watch Ponies!" That's all she kept saying. Today, we finally got the chance to sit down and watch it.

It certainly kept Lily's attention. She asked to watch it again! The message it sent out was good, as usual, and the ponies are as cute and colorful as ever. Even my 3 month old was a bit mesmerized by it! The DVD come packed with Bonus features including Six Sing-Alongs, "Waiting For The Winter Wishes Festival" Prequel, "Elefun & Friends" Animated Short, and four downloadable activities! If you have little girls, or know little girls that love My Little Pony, then you need to pick this movie up as a gift to them!

Twinkle Wish Adventure will be out on DVD October 13th, and will be airing on National cable-network closer to the DVD release date. The SRP of Twinkle Wish Adventure is $14.99. When you purchase the DVD at Toys 'R' Us and Target you will find a "Save $5 Coupon" attached to the DVD. The coupon will save you $5 when you purchase the DVD and one Hasbro My Little Pony toy.

6 Where Is the Heart of Our Home?

"Samsung's businesses harness the power of the digital revolution to create ground-breaking products and services that take consumers and businesses beyond imagination."

A question asked by Samsung Home Appliances and TwitterMoms. One lucky blogger who enters and gets the most comments on their blog posts will win a free Samsung Washer (WF448AAP) and Dryer (DV448AEP). All I have to do is write a post about The heart of our home.

I would have to say that the heart of our home would be the living room. That's where we spend most of our time. That's where we play. It's where we put all the blankets and pillows from the bed onto the floor and snuggle to relax from the day we had. It's where our oldest daughter makes the biggest messes! We Play board games, like Candyland! It's where we put up our Christmas tree and gather Christmas Eve and morning. I love that feeling.... We have a lot of memories here, and many more to come!

So tell me... What is the heart of your home?
