Breast Pump winner

Ok, I am a total slacker. I know, I know. There's no need to throw things!

In order to determine a winner for this contest I used the very scientific method of picking a number from a hat. Only I didn't have a hat so I used a bowl. And the winner is ..... (drum roll please) ..... Someone without a blog!

Anonymous at hotmail, I will be emailing you to get your shipping info. Congrats and I hope the breast pump is helpful to you and your little one!

Evenflo Comfort Select Performance Give-Away

Hey everyone! I am giving away a breast pump. It's perfect thing for me to give away what with me loving boobs and babies and nursing and all that fun stuff. Read along to find out how you can win a Evenflo Comfort Select Performance breast pump!

If you are (or ever have been) the mother of an infant you have pumped breast milk. I did it for Elle, I did it for my surrogate child and I will do it for my next surrogate child. Pumping is great, it allows us to give our children the very best even when we're away from them. It isn't always very convenient though. When I pumped for my surrogate child I hated always having to bring my bog, bulky pump with me everywhere. If only I had know about the Evenflo Comfort Select Performance breast pump. It's easy to use, portable, easy to clean and matches almost any outfit. Who wouldn't one of of these babies? I know I would. And I bet you would to.

So how can you get one? Two ways. First, you can head over here and enter to win a breast pump and nursing pads. Or, you can stay right here and enter. That's right, you can win a breast pump right here. Can you even believe it? Yes, I bet you can.

Leave a comment on this post between now and 11:59 PM May 9th and you are entered in a give-away for a Evenflo Breast Pump plus two boxes of nursing pads. That's all you have to do! Feel free to enter even you don't need a pump. It makes a good shower gift too! Leave any kind of comment you like. I'm not picky. For example, discuss if you think it's possible to make butter out of breast milk. Or talk about how anyone who discusses breast milk butter probably has too much time on their hands. Whatever you like, just make sure it has a valid email address attached to it so I can contact you if you are the winner. Come on, what are you waiting for?

I would like to thank the good folks at and Evenflo making this giveaway possible.

Kellogg's Eggo Bake Shop Twists

We Go through a lot of Eggos in my house. A lot. Joseph loves Eggo waffles for breakfast and he eats them almost every morning. Recently we have added something new to our breakfast routine around here. We have become big fans of Kellogg's Eggo Bake Shop Twists in both apple and strawberry flavors.

You might not have heard of Bake Shop Twists, they are a new product. They are frozen and you heat them up in your microwave. It only takes 25 seconds and you have a nice hot breakfast snack. They sort of look like cereal bars but they taste better than any cereal bar I've ever had. Joseph likes to eat them in the car on the way to school. That works for me because they're more on-the-go friendly than most other breakfast foods. We will certainly buy these again. They're great for both kids (mine both prefer the strawberry flavor) and adults (I like the apple better).

You can find more information on Eggo Bake shop Twists and other Kellogg's products here.

Listerine Total Care

When I hear the word "Listerine" I think of my grandpa's house where there was always a big bottle of Listerine on the bathroom counter. One time when I was kid I took a tiny little taste just to see what it was like. I spit it out right away! Back in those days Listerine was pretty intense. Let's just say you could feel it working. That one experience with Listerine was enough to keep me away from it for a while.

When I was asked by the good folks at Mom Central to review Listerine Total Care Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash I was a little sceptical. And scared. I haven't forgotten what that sip of Listerine was like when I was a kid. I like to live on the edge though so I said they could send me a bottle.

Imagine my surprise when what showed up to my house was a bottle of pretty purple mouthwash. Clearly this was not my grandpa's Listerine! And it does more than just look nice sitting on your bathroom counter. There are six benefits of Listerine Total Care and they are:
1. Helping to prevent cavities
2. Restoring enamel
3. Strengthening teeth
4. Killing bad breath germs
5. Freshening breath
6. Fighting unsightly plaque above the gum line

All that and it tastes good too! There is no burning sensation, just a pleasant tingling. I plan on buying this product again and not just because I like the color.

You can check for more information about Listerine Total Care and the entire Listerine line of products.

Johnson's No More Tears 50th Anniversary

Did you know Johnson's No More Tears has been around for 50 years? I didn't either until I was asked by the good folks at Mom Central to review two Johnson's No More Tears products and to pass the word along about Johnson's 50th anniversary.

The first product I got was Johnson's Baby Bubble Bath & Wash. I have to admit, I like this stuff for Elle because it's nice and gentle on her sensitive skin but I also love it for me. The scent is light and soft whether I use it on Elle or myself we both end up with soft skin. I know it has "baby" in the name but this stuff is nice for anyone. (If you click on the link I posted you can print out a coupon to save a dollar on this product.)

The second product I got was Johnson's Head to Toe Foaming Wash. Elle loved this product. I put a little of the foam in her hands and she loves using it to wash up. This product also has a nice light scent and I have to confess that I've used it myself a time or two. Or ten.

Both of these products work well on Elle who has very dry, sensitive skin. You can click here for more information about these products or about the 50th Anniversary of Johnson's No More Tears.

Frosted Flakes Plant a Seed

I have a confession. I don't understand football. I know that's pretty lame but it gets worse. The only time I watch football is during the Super Bowl. And why do I watch it then? For the exciting game play? The pageantry of the half-time show? They guys in tight pants? No, it's none of those. I watch for the commercials.

One commercial I'll be watching for this year is for the Frosted Flakes Plant a Seed program. The Kellogg's Frosted Flakes Plant a Seed program helps communities maintain their athletic fields so that kids have safe and clean places to play. If you go the website you can preview the commercial (so you can see it without sitting through the pageantry of the half-time show). You can also nominate a athletic field to be a part of the program or help out fields already in the program.

So check it out, it's a great cause!
