This weeks giveaway is a fawn colored Kiddopotamus Snuzzler!
I absolutely LOVE the Snuzzler. We have one for Sam and he used it in his car seat, stroller, and swing. It kept him secure, cozy and comfortable when I couldn’t hold him. I have even heard of some mamas using them in their baby carriers although I didn’t try this in our ERGO.
The Kiddopotamus Snuzzler is a complete head and body support cushion for newborn babies. They are soft, plush, and perfect for any newborn. Snuggling down in a carseat has never been more comfortable!
CONGRATULATIONS TO DONNA! She won this Snuzzler!
There is no obligation and no need to give any info out unless you win (in this case I will privately request your address for shipping). This is simply a fun way for me to get rid of some extra product before our military transfer next Spring. The items you will receive, should you win, are brand new, never used unless otherwise stated. These are usually overstock items that need to be cleared away quickly or items that are on clearance.
I will continue to have weekly giveaways as long as I have product needing to exit my house so check back often! In the near future we plan to offer up Pedoodles, BellyHuggers, Nursery Gear, and more! Subscribe to our RSS Feed to be sure you don’t miss a thing!
For more information on our giveaway rules or if you would like me to do a review and giveaway of one of your products please visit our giveaway info page here or contact me!

Here are some pretty cool deals if you like to start your Christmas shopping early. Hat tip to imommies.

So, December is over and my total CashCrate earnings were somewhere around $39. Not bad for extremely part time test-work. Plus, I didn’t do any offers for the last two weeks of December. I probably could have doubled my CashCrate earnings if I had kept it up during my vacation.
Anyway, since December was my first month trying out CashCrate I am itching to receive my first check to prove that this is a completely legit opportunity. I have confidence that it is because I know others who have been doing it for a while and they have always received their checks.
If you don’t know much about CashCrate you can read my previous post about it here.
My account says that my December earnings are processing. Most CashCrate members say that their checks arrive after the 20th of the following month. I will let you all know when I get my check this month!
Meanwhile – keep a look out for my total button on the sidebar. I start over again at $0 each month and every day or so I revise my earnings total.

We won’t talk about where I washed dishes today, or where I baked bread two days ago. I am hesitant to tell you that my husband’s table saw is set up in my older two boy’s bedroom and that today the only thing my children have done is play video games, which may be usual for many kids but is completely not normal for mine. The poor dears haven’t complained that they can’t really leave the living room because the kitchen is spread out across the dining room, through the hallway, and a little in the bathroom. I call it ‘remodel aerobics’ whenever I have to move from one room to another – I have to turn, step over something, shimmy around another thing, duck, and then step over something else. The good thing is we have managed to keep clear paths from the bedrooms to the exits in case of a fire and my laptop is still easily accessible.
Here are some photos of the last week – a LOT has gotten done. As crazy as it seems around here we have been very blessed at how quickly the kitchen is coming together.
The end of day one – notice that my kids were quick to get the refrigerator #’s and letters back on the fridge face. I also didn’t take long filling up the top of the refrigerator. That stuff won’t stay up there for long though we just needed a place to put it as every other space in the house is filled right now.
Day 2 and 3 got this finished. If you look at our day 1 pictures here you will see that this space used to awkwardly hold the refrigerator. The outlets had to be moved and there was an odd light switch that we found behind the refrigerator that needed to be moved or rewired or something.
The next project was a BIG one that needed to get done in a very short period of time. It is this UGLY sliding glass door. We have two doors leading to the outside in this kitchen, for what reason, I don’t know. They both lead to the back deck and this sliding glass door must have been one of the first sliding glass doors ever made. It is so old and almost seemed to fall out when opened.
Here is my dear husband posing for the camera. He got the sliding glass door out and started framing in our new picture window and worked pretty quick. Yes, that is snow behind him – about 4 inches covered the ground. I had to shovel the deck so he could get the window in without slipping. And, yes, he is wearing short sleeves while it was a balmy 28 degrees outside.
And after only 3 or 4 hours he had the new window installed. It is one of those high efficiency windows and WOW! We felt a difference in warmth within only a few hours!
On day 4 Ryan took this cabinet out. The plumbing was a mess and we haven’t had a kitchen sink in 3 days. That is okay – we made due. Ryan, my super handy husband, went right to work making everything right so that the new sink would fit right and the dishwasher would run properly. He also replaced old, nasty pipes and fittings.
and TA-DA! The new cabinet is in, along with the sink and counter top. Looks WAY COOL! We got the faucet in, too, although this picture was taken before we got that in. Ryan is still working right now. He almost has all the counter tops on and he has rewired so much stuff. Gotta love old knob and tube, blaaa. Oh, but we don’t have water to the sink or dishwasher yet. Being that today is New Year’s Day and we don’t have the right size hose we will have to wait until tomorrow for everything to open again to have my sink and dishwasher back.
I am excited to get the cabinets stained! Should only be a couple of days until we can start staining and painting. The cabinets will be a red mahogany.
Any suggestions for wall color? Right now they are yellow, white, cream, gray and periwinkle accented with a bit of old ripped wallpaper remnants. Sounds beautiful. Believe me, it is one of a kind.
