My TURKEY WINNER!!

Just a quick note to announce the winner of my Screamin Daily Deals and TheBlogFrog.com’s SoCal Family Connect community Turkey Dinner giveaway… BERNADETTE!! Her blog is Bern-Baby-Bern.blogspot.com. Please check out her blog and congratulations!! 


The holiday season is officially off and running! I attended Aubrey’s preschool Thanksgiving Feast today which was a ton of fun and I also bought almost everything I need to make holiday gifts. I bake treats every year. Both to keep costs down and to avoid the mass commercialism and mobs at the malls. And I love to bake – so it all works out. I just need a couple more items and I’ll be all done with my holiday “shopping”!


Better get back to nagging my three year old. Rest time is a battle these days. She doesn’t want to nap anymore, but definitely needs a quiet time. She fights this too, but I have to stick to my guns. I’d be so embarrassed if she turned out to be an axe murderer or something. Ta-ta.

A SoCal Giveaway of Thanksgiving!

I’m THRILLED to announce this very awesome giveaway, made possible by Screamin Daily Deals and The Blog Frog’s SoCal Family Connect community


Thanksgiving is less than two weeks away and that means the holiday season is upon us! This has been a difficult year for our great country and many of us are tightening up our budgets and spending more carefully. Even if your financial status hasn’t changed in 2010, I’d be willing to bet you know a family who has experienced job loss, bankruptcy, home loss and more.


Let’s get to the good part of this post – I have been given a full turkey or ham holiday dinner, made by the fine people at Bellemente Catering in Santa Clarita Valley, to GIVE AWAY!!! This is a $150 value and the winner gets it for FREE!


What I’m hoping is that people will enter this giveaway and of course, if they are in need, keep it for themselves – but if not, I hope that the winner will donate this fabulous meal to a family in need, or a local organization such as a shelter, half-way house, etc. Be creative and think of what you could do with this meal! I also hope this giveaway will spread awareness of Screamin Daily Deals and the great things they are doing for our local communities… on top of giving us killer deals!


Maybe this giveaway will inspire YOU to buy additional meals through Screamin Daily Deals and give them away! Spread the love this holiday season and feel good about your purchase contributing to local schools and non-profits as well. That’s the coolest thing about Screamin Daily Deals!


You can view the details of this holiday dinner here and remember this link is just to see the details of what the dinner includes – you do NOT have to buy the deal!


Here’s what you’ll get – Serves 8-10 people:
– Choose either a whole, roasted, unsliced turkey OR ham
– Salad
– Mashed potatoes
– Gravy
– Rolls
– Pumpkin pie


Here is the fine print:
– Does NOT have to be use for Thanksgiving or Christmas. This deal doesn’t expire until Feb 12, 2011 so you can use it any time before then if you are the winner
– Must place your order 72 hours in advance
– You must pick up the food in Santa Clarita or you can have it delivered within their delivery area for an additional fee
– They are closed on the actual holiday, so if you want this deal for Thanksgiving or Christmas, you will have to get/receive the food the day before and reheat for your holiday meal.


To enter the giveaway, please leave a separate comment for each entry. There are 7 different ways to enter and the first two are mandatory! This giveaway is a short one and will only run through midnight PST on Thursday, Nov 18, 2010:


1) Leave a comment and tell me what you would do with this meal if you win! (mandatory)
2) Register for Screamin Daily Deals – use this link & receive a $5 credit in your account! (mandatory)

“Win a FREE Thanksgiving dinner for 10 in SoCal to keep or giveaway! Hurry – ends 11/18!!  http://tinyurl.com/24c42vm  (Plz RT)”

Good luck and happy giving!

SCREAMIN DEALS!!! Quick - they won't last long!

Just a quick note to let you in on two really great deals – one local here in Orange County and one national that you order online from anywhere in the US! BOTH OF THESE DEALS ARE AVAILABLE FOR LESS THAN 4 HOURS NOW – SO HURRY!!!


If you have kids you know that you are required to label a lot of their stuff – clothes, sports equipment, lunch boxes, toys, sippy cups…. the good ol’ Sharpie pen can really get a work out and so can your writing arm, but the problem is it does wear off with washing. There’s this awesome company called LabelDaddy.com and they make these customizable, adhesive labels that are even water proof! A mom at the mall playground told me about them last year and she swears by them. She labels her kid’s sippy cups and runs them through the dishwasher and they stay on! On clothes and they stay on through the wash. Nice!


Now that Aubrey is in pre-school, I do have to label things but have been really lazy about it because it’s a lot of work. Now I have a great excuse to try out LabelDaddy.com. Here’s the deal: 



The SoCal/Orange Country local deal is 50% off admission to the Orange Country Women’s Expo on November 21st in Anaheim. I’ve heard lots of great things about this Expo and here’s a chance to get a ticket for only $2.50. AND if you use my link to register with Screamin Daily Deals, you get a $5 credit and that means it’s FREE!!!



Have fun and have a great day!
