Udder Covers Nursing Cover Giveaway at The Hand That Rocks the Cradle

I am due with my third child in March and will be nursing again. I nursed my first two and loved that I did it. When we went out, I did not have a nursing cover and I wish that I did. I would either nurse the baby in the car or I would just stay home so I wouldn't have to worry about finding a place to nurse. Udder Covers has the cutest nursing cover patterns and it's hard to find just one that I like but since my husband and I didn't find out the gender to our third baby I would pick a gender neutral pattern.
Go check out the giveaway on The Hand that Rock the Cradle before it ends on December 9, 2010.

Nautica Father’s Day Giveaway From The Mommy-Files

Father's Day is coming up this Sunday and I must admit that I have not bought my husband anything. We are in the middle of selling our house and money is tied up in other places so it's kind of tough right now for us. The Mommy-Files is having an amazing giveaway from Nautica going on until tonight. She is giving two lucky readers a Father's Day Prize Pack that includes a silk tie, polo shirt, sunglasses and all of this comes in a beach bag. This would be perfect for my husband because we are moving back down to the Gulf and is starting a new job where he will be wearing polo shirts to work. You better go check it out because like I said it ends tonight!!

Neutrogena UltraSheer® Liquid Daily Sunblock Review

When I received the sunblock in the mail, I knew I would have to wait a few days because it would be raining that week. Friday rolled around and it was my Stroller Strides class day. The class is spent outside for an hour exercising with my children. The day was going to be very hot and sunny. This was going to be the perfect test!!

I opened up the package and put some on my fingers to apply. It was very white but it wasn't very thick. It rubbed into my face really well and did not leave any white streaks. My face was a little greasy at first but it faded pretty quickly. I only put sunblock on my face and I wore a tank top. When I got home that afternoon, I noticed that my chest and shoulders were a little red but my face was not red at all. I didn't have any streaks on my face so I knew that I had rubbed it everywhere. What I love best about the sunblock is that I did not break out from using it. Overall this is a really great product and it definitely works. Every time I go outside I make sure I use the Neutrogena UltraSheer® Liquid Daily Sunblock.

Giveaway of Stroller Strides Classes for Raleigh Moms

There is a giveaway over at Lil-Kid-Things blog for 10 Stroller Stride classes at the North Hills Mall in Raleigh. I would love to try out these classes. I've tried taking my children to the gym so I could work out but my son is going through some major separation anxiety. I am only able to get about 30 minutes of work out in before someone from the child care comes to get me. If I could take my son with me to work out, this would be perfect for both of us. I wouldn't have to worry about leaving him with someone and worry about getting interrupted because he would be with me the whole time. He also loves being outside so this is a win-win for both of us. If you live in Raleigh and have a child that still sits in a stroller, you should check out this giveaway from Lil-Kid-Things.

Win a Juppy from Dear Crissy

My son is almost 11 months old and has really started taking an interest in walking. He pulls himself up on all the furniture and me, when I'm wearing pants. This weekend, he started gliding across the furniture from one end to the other. I can tell that it's just a matter of time before he takes his first steps. He loves to watch my daughter run around the house and I can see how eager he is to run after her.
I recently came across a giveaway from Dear Crissy for a Juppy Baby Walker. I had never heard of this product but when I checked out the review from Dear Crissy, I knew that my husband and I could help my son learn to walk. I love the fact that I could take this outside and my son could walk in the grass because he loves to be outside. The giveaway ends on May 6 so go check it out and enter.

BABIES Coming to a Theater Near You

When Bzzagent asked me to help spread the word about an upcoming movie, I thought sure this would be fun. As I watched the trailer for the movie, I couldn't help but laugh at the beginning. If you have babies, you will definitely understand why. All babies act the same regardless of where they are born. Click on the trailer below to learn more about the movie.

Everybody loves... BABIES. Coming to theatres this Mother's Day Weekend (May 7th), this visually stunning new movie simultaneously follows four babies around the world - from first breath to first steps. From Mongolia to Namibia to San Francisco to Tokyo, BABIES joyfully captures on film the earliest stages of the journey of humanity that are at once unique and universal to us all.

Help spread the word about this educating and entertaining movie by telling all your friends. I mean really, who doesn't like a sweet baby?

Isn't winning fun?

Entering giveaways has become part of my daily routine. I started back in September of 2009 and haven't looked back. How can I when I have won some wonderful items? The winning always seems to comes in waves. I win about 3 or 4 things in about two days and then I don't win for a week. It's those 2 days that I win items that keeps me going. I told my husband I wanted to keep a list of everything I have won so I thought I would do it here. A new blog post will be added to list everything I have won. Hopefully I won't forget anything. I haven't won anything really big just yet but maybe in the near future. My mom and sister are hoping to get into the action and I've started giving them some tips on how to do it.
1.) Make sure you have an email address that is set up to receive emails from bloggers. Don't forget to check it everyday. Most bloggers will only give you 24-48 hours to respond before they pick someone else. I won a beautiful diaper bag because someone didn't respond in time.
2.) Open a twitter account. You can get extra entries for tweeting and following bloggers and their sponsors.
3.) Open a facebook account. Many bloggers will give you extra entries if you become a fan on facebook.
4.) It would probably be a good idea to start a blog. I started this blog only to help win giveaways. Many bloggers will give you extra entries into their giveaways if you blog about it.

BEWARE: Once you start winning, you will be hooked :-) I will post more about giveaways soon.... Good luck!!

Sealy Posturepedic Mattress Giveaway from

If I could win one giveaway, this one would be it. is giving away a Sealy Posturepedic Signature 11-Series innerspring mattress. There are so many reasons why my husband and I could use a new mattress. First of all, the mattress that we have now is extremely outdated. This was my husbands mattress before we got married. After sleeping on it for so many years, it sinks in the middle, even when we flip it over, it still sinks in the middle. My husband and I have been having back pains almost every morning. I wake up almost every night around 4:00 and can't go back to sleep for about an hour because of the pain in my back and neck. We have been talking about getting a new mattress along with a new bedroom suite but we have had so many set backs in our finances that it is not going to happen in the near future. This past year we moved because of a transfer in my husbands company, we had a baby boy and I ended up staying home with our two children so now we only have one pay check coming in each month. Getting a new mattress would be so amazing! Now that my son sleeps through the night, this should mean that I can sleep through the night but unfortunately it is not happening. A good night sleep would make mommy and daddy very happy :-)

The Bragging Mommy is giving away a Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller

This stroller would be perfect for our family. We have two children ages 2.5 and 7 months. My husband and I are on a very limited budget so we have not been able to afford a double stroller for the kids. My poor son is using his big sisters girly stroller. This usually means that we get lots of compliments on our cute "little girl". Ugh!! It's time to get a neutral color so both kids can use the stroller and my poor son won't be mistaken for a girl anymore. The Bragging Mommy was given the opportunity to review a Bumbleride Indie Twin Double Stroller and now she is giving away a stroller to one of her readers. There are some wonderful colors to choose from but I think I would have to go with the green. The only thing I would have to get for the stroller is the snack tray. Snacks are about the only thing that keep my children occupied. Check out the review and giveaway by January 25. Some lucky family is going to win an amazing stroller.
