Modern Family the complete First Season Review and Giveaway

I love Modern Family. When I was offered the opportunity to review and do a giveaway, I could not pass it up! This show is funny and it is the one show I look forward to watch during the week. This giveaway is for the grown ups!

Featuring an all-star cast led by Ed O’Neill, Sofia Vargara, Julie Bowen, and Ty Burrell, Modern Family takes a refreshing and funny view of what it means to raise a family in this hectic day and age.  Multi-cultural relationships, adoption, and same-sex marriage are just a few of the timely issues faced by the show’s three wildly-diverse broods.  No matter the size or shape, family always comes first in this hilariously “modern” look at life, love, and laughter.

The complete first season of Modern Family is coming to DVD on September 21st. 

It’s giveaway time! I have two copies of Modern Family to giveaway. All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know who your favorite character is and you are entered to win. 
Contest ends on September 20th at 11:59pm. Winner will be selected at random.

Review and Giveaway- Strawberry Shortcake’s The Glimmerberry Ball Movie and Berrywood Here We Come

As a thirty something mom, I have a confession to make. I was a Strawberry Shortcake junkie growing up and I have to admit, I still am sort of. I still get a kick out of Strawberry Shortcake and to my surprise, my five year old daughter has recently began to show signs of obsession with the sweet smelling girl and friends.
When I was asked if I would love to review and giveaway two fun DVD’s I jumped right on it!

Strawberry Shortcake’s Berrywood Here We Come, is a fun treat for any little girl. Strawberry Shortcake and friends head off to visit Strawberry’s movie star friend in Berrywood. The movie follows their adventures and helps her movie star friend realize that not everything is as it seems. They learn valuable life lessons and have fun in their adventures. The movie will sure to be hit with your little girl.

Strawberry Shortcake’s The Glimmerberry Ball Movie is one that your little girl will not be able to resist. It is my daughter’s absolute new favorite movie. Follow Strawberry Shortcake as she prepares for the Big Ball, exchange presents with friends and solve a mystery. There is also a valuable life lesson to be learned- Friends helping Friends. I was very impressed to learn that Strawberry Shortcake movies share great life lessons and messages. The movies are delightful!

The Glimeerberry Ball Movie and Berrywood Here We Come are both available at your favorite retailer or online sites such as Amazon.

It’s giveaway time! Two lucky winners will receive both movies. All you have to do is leave a comment letting me know why you would want to win and you are entered to win. The contest will close on Sunday September 6th at 11:59pm. Winner will be chosen at random. Good luck!

Safeway/Vons Back to School Box Tops for Education Event/Giveaway

I can’t believe there are only a few days left in August. I head back to school tomorrow(I’m finishing up a program at CSUF) and my kiddos return to school in two weeks. My daughter will be heading to kindergarten this year and I plan on collecting Box Tops for Education to help her school this year. 

The Safeway family of stores (which includes Vons) is making it simple to give back with “2 Ways 2 Earn” cash for your schools with Box Tops for Education and the “10% Goes Back to Schools” program.

Box Tops for Education has already given away over $320 million to help the more than 69 thousand schools participating. And if that wasn´t enough, earning Box Tops is even easier this year with four new brands participating in the program: Progresso Soup, Totino´s Pizza, Betty Crocker Cake Mixes and Gold Medal Flour.

To help your local schools even further just look for the “10% Goes Back to Schools” yellow school bus tags on over 2,000 of your favorite items throughout Safeway from August 11th – September 14th. When you purchase participating products with your Club Card, Safeway will give 10% of the purchase price to the local school of your choice.

Here´s how it works:

  • Check your receipt from August 11 – September 14. The total will be updated each time you shop.
  • Beginning on September 18, a redemption code will be printed at the bottom of your receipt.
  • Visit before October 13 to choose your favorite participating local school, then simply enter your redemption code to make your donation.
