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)
3) Follow my blog on Google Friend Connect 
4) Follow me on Twitter
5) Follow my FunnyYellowMom community on TheBlogFrog
6) Follow the SoCal Family Connect community on TheBlogFrog
7) Tweet this giveaway & leave the URL in your comment: 

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



Winner will be selected using Random.org and must claim the dinner within 24 hours of being notified via email or I will have to select a new winner. PLEASE be sure I am able to reach you via email or Twitter – leave it in your comments!


Good luck and happy giving!

Join Me On SoCal Community on TheBlogFrog.com
(Imagine there’s a nice photo here… working on it)



Fat announcement: I have just joined the team over at TheBlogFrog.com as a community leader for the SoCal Family Connect community! If you’re a blogger, you’ve probably already heard of Blog Frog and you might be aware of what a great tool it is for building your readership, discovering other blogs and connecting with blogger communities all over the place.


There is a team of six SoCal bloggers serving as community leaders and we’ll be talking about everything from books, parenting, money, sports, recipes/cooking, entertainment and more. Come join in the discussions and share your thoughts. We want to hear from you and know what YOU think! You’ll probably make some new friends too. Awww! 


The Blog Frog’s SoCal Family Connect Community is sponsored by Screamin Daily Deals – offering you deep discounts on lots of awesome stuff in your area and then giving part of your money back to local schools and non-profits. Cool way to build community, huh?


Right now, I’m on the road in the midwest and I’m so glad to have a little break from my 3 year old’s television shows. If I have to hear The Fresh Beats Band song, “Loco Legs” one more time or have to listen to that skinny white kid “rapping” anymore, I may throw the tv out the window and follow it. What kid shows do you love and hate?


Am I the only one out there who had a little secret crush on Robbie Rotten? I also know all of the Yo Gabba Gabba episodes and I kind of wish I were Super Martian Robot Girl


So come on over the the Frog side and see what we have to offer! I bet you’ll get hooked like me – it’s kind of like Facebook for bloggers. YIKES!
