Wubbzy Be Mine - New DVD!

Aubrey is a big Wow Wow Wubbzy fan, so we were pretty stoked to hear there is a new WWW Valentine’s Day DVD out, called Wubbzy Be Mine

This DVD contains three Valentine’s themed episodes: “Mr Valentine,” “Cupid’s Helper,” and “My Speedy Valentine.” Aubrey’s personal favorite is “Cupid’s Helper” because there is bubble-blower involved. She’s a 3-1/2 year old girl – enough said. 

Wow Wow Wubbzy is a really cute cartoon and the story lines seem to hold Aubrey’s attention. The stories teach lessons about friendship, helping and appreciation and if you’re a Blink 182 fan, I always thought the WWW theme song sounds like one of their songs. (I’m just saying.)

You can buy Wow Wow Wubbzy: Wubbzy Be Mine right now, in stores and online at all the places you’d expect to find DVDs but you can also enter to win a copy of the DVD right now, on this here blog! AND the winner will also receive Wubbzy “Conversation Hearts” candies! Woohoo! Oh and the DVD contains 8 Wubbzy Valentine’s cards for your little one to decorate and give away. 

This is a QUICK giveaway since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner (and I was out of town for a week). All you have to do is leave a comment below, telling me how you plan to spend your Valentine’s Day, next Monday. One entry/comment per person and you can enter until midnight PST on Wed, Feb 9th, 2011. Good luck! Winner will be notified on Thurs, Feb 10th, 2011.

Valentine's Day Is Coming - Are you Fresh & Easy (& cheap)?
OK, more Fresh & Easy! Since I was so freakin‘ slow getting my post about the holiday treats up, I wanted to get my Valentine’s Day treat post up right away. Why? Because I love Fresh & Easy and I’m pretty sure I can convert you too.
F&E just sent me two boxes of their special V-Day nosh and wines and once again they have some really great treats available for you at amazing prices! Check out these products and the other great stuff they have and you won’t even have to tell your sweetheart you didn’t spend a fortune.
Here’s the loot in order from L-R:
Fresh and Easy Snickerdoodle Cookies – $2.59/8 ct
As much as I hate to admit it, these snickerdooodles are almost as good as mine and I’m a damn good baker. Because of my status as Damn Good Baker, I usually can’t stand store bought cookies. The kind that come from the grocery store bakery are usually the worst – dry and flavorless – but these are really really good! They are chewy and just the right amount of buttery/cinnamony/sugary/sweet. Buy them.
Montcadi Cava Rose – $6.99 (on sale for $4.99)
I haven’t opened either of these bottles yet, but trust me, I will. This is a rose sparkling wine that was a recent Double Gold winner at the San Francisco International Wine Competition. Get it while it’s only 5 bucks before it goes to it’s outrageous regular price of 7 bucks. Bwahahaha!
McGuigan Hand Made Barossa Shiraz – $12.99 (on sale for $8.99)
This is an Australian wine that is described as going well with red meats or strong cheeses. I haven’t met a strong cheese I didn’t like, so I have plans for this bottle.
Sweet Boutique Gourmet Swiss Truffles – $3.99/6.3 oz
This seems to be a milk and dark chocolate copy cat of the amazing Lindt Lindor Truffles and the good news is they are almost as delicious and for about half the price. My ball split in half when I bit into it, but the chocolate was nice and smooth and tasty.
Fresh and Easy One Huge Hunk Chocolate Bar w Pecans & Fruit – $4.29/14 oz
OK, this one is pretty self explanatory and how can you NOT buy something chocolate named “One Huge Hunk”? Go for it.
You really should stop in to your local F&E if you live in Cali, Arizona or Nevada. You’ll be glad you did. And if I haven’t raved enough, here’s something else, non-food, that I love about F&E… click here to read about their green building initiatives. Helping the environment and saving you money – ahhhh. Refreshing!
