A huge THANK YOU to Classy Mommy and Mommies With Style and Hasbro for this spectacular Social Media Mom Mixer Holiday Showcase.



My first stop was Just Play Toys
Minnie's Flipping Fun Kitchen, Doc McStuffins "Time for your Check Up Doll, and Bounce Bounce Tigger:
 
Next stop: Stella & Dot:
Gorgeous (really is) celebrity adored jewels and accessories by star stylist Jen Thomas. Visit them to host a holiday trunk show and get hostess credits.

 

and off to barley there:
The Moms were offered a free bra fitting and a sample to take home and try out. Guess what, I was wearing the wrong size! who knew. I'm totally in love with this brand. I wore my new bra and what a difference. so comfy. fits great. you gotta try them!


Then I'm off to visit VZ Wraps:
Adorable, reusable fabric gift bags made from traditional or organic cotton. Made by Isabelle Vesy, a Mom of two from Haverford, Pennsylvania. She makes all these really cute and stylish bags for all sizes and shapes of gifts and occasions.  We were offered a sample of the gift card size that will accommodate a gift card on a card (they way most are sold these days). No bending or trying to fit it into a small holder, and you can reuse the gift bag.



Off to visit K'Nex at their table.
Tinker Toys! need I say more, and the newest from  K'nex. K'nex is proudly made in Hatfield, Pennsylvania. Happy to see made in USA!


Heading around the room to Little Passports table:
Made by Moms! Kid tested by their own children!
It's a subscription service for 3, 6, or 12 months for only $10.95 a month.  You can chose the World Edition or the newly added USA edition. Your child can "travel" around the world with Sam and Sofia-the characters in Little Passports. Each month a new kit is sent with information, activities, and an related toy from their travels. There are fun and educational activities about that months country. As a geography major myself,  this is a hit! A great way to learn about people and how they use their land.  A true learning benefit for home or school use. Perfect for homeschoolers for sure.



A few more tables at the Mom Mixer:
Tommy Hilfiger: Kids clothing for all those holiday get together. I'd call it classic American clothing. I am a fan of their shirts for Me!
Cherchies Specialty Foods: gourmet treats for your holiday parties and gift giving.
American Girl Dolls: stylish quality and traditions.
Hasbro: The newsiest PlayDoh sets were on display. I'd probably buy all those for my kids for Christmas. I might just like PlayDoh more than they do. And Nerf -fits nicely under the Christmas Tree don't you think.


thank you to these sponsors also:
 
It was such a fun day to see old Friends, meet new friends, and to see some of the hottest toys for this Holiday season. Shop on line or in stores for all these great selections and family favorite brands.

Giveaway of New Soft Scrub® 4-in-1 Toliet Cleaner to three lucky winners.

  Let's talk about cleaning toilets. Hmm, I'd rather not talk about that, or clean them. However, I don't want dirty toilets in our house, so I have to clean all three of them. I'd clean four or five because I really would like two downstairs bathrooms in my next house. We have one powder room on the first floor and two full baths upstairs.I'd like three full baths upstairs. Why in the world would I want to clean all that? Who knows, but having a product that can help out cleaning the three we currently have in my house is greatly appreciated. Soft Scrub ®  is honestly amazing me with their new and improved products. I've learned about them in the past few months from trying them out and writing reviews. My kitchen sink has never shined so much, the bathrooms are cleaner, and now Soft Scrub 4-in-1 Toilet Care is now here! It is new, it smells nice, and it is so easy to use. Just clip it on the side of the bowl, make sure it is in the flow of water when the toil

Giveaway of Three Copies of Les Misérables on Blu Ray DVD combo Pack

You know that part of a DVD that prompts you to select play, scenes, bonus, set up while bits of the movie play? I did not get past that for several plays through the song "Do you hear the people sing" with  people of France waving their flag, and singing about they will not be slaves again.  The song is so moving, so powerful. It can stir up your the strength within your soul, it can remind you of the freedom of being an American, and it can bring you to tears of sadness, happiness, and joy. Now on to select play: I saw Les Misérables at the preview screening last year and was captivated, motionless in my seat. The DVD has the same effect. You'll be taken back to another place, another time. The cast is perfect, the singing is moving, and the scenery is real old world "Paris". As I watched Les Misérables it's a reminder to myself, a wake up call for us all to be humble, be better. To forgive each other, let go of our egos, help each other at times of need,

Win an Ultimate prize pack from Betty Crocker Ultimate Meals and Mixes

So, how's the dinner time prep going? The kids are back in school, and  then after school is sports, band practice. Do you have the taxi light on top your car on? Sound familiar? I can relate. Those nights of soccer practice and games kept us moving. I am the late afternoon here on the East Coast, and glad to have my dinner thoughts together. How did I do it? The ultimate way, with new Ultimate Hamburger Helper from Betty Crocker ®, that's how. I whipped up, I'm calling it that, because it was easy to prepare and cook. I made Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara. Easy to understand directions are on the back of the box, and don't forget to cut out the Box Tops For Education Label before you toss the cardboard into your recycling bin.   How to make this warm hearty meal for your family: open a box of Ultimate Hamburger Helper Three Cheese Marinara Brown 1 pound ground beef in a skillet. I used organic ground beef. In that same skillet, add and stir in: 1 cup o
