Premama Giveaway

Welcome to the Premama Prenatal Vitamin Mix Giveaway hosted by Stay a Stay at Home Mom.

Premama is a powdered supplement mix of prenatal vitamins. It’s a solution to replace all those horse pills we’ve taken in pregnancies past. Each box contains 30 premeasured servings, in individual packets. The packets have two half-servings each so if you want, you can take it in halfs over the day instead of all at once. (A MUST for morning sickness!)

Visit the Premama Website Here

You mix the packets into 12 ounces of liquid such as milk, juice, or even water. Carbonated beverages aren’t recommend (you’re not drinking soda while you’re pregnant anyway, right?) and hot beverages such as coffee or tea are out as well.

Read the full Premama review here

Premama has graciously allowed us to do a giveaway of a month’s supply of Premama Vitamin Powdered Supplement Mix. Fill out the Rafflecopter below, and good luck! Giveaway runs now until the stroke of midnight on January 22nd.

Cambells Gourmet Butternut Squash Bisque Review

First off I have to say I am a fan of butternut squash. So when I got the opportunity to review this product I was excited. You definitely need to like butternut squash to enjoy this soup/bisque. The flavors were good with a little touch of onion and parsley. I also tried my bisque with saltine crackers, which was yummy and I also though it would be good in a bread bowl. Something like Panera would serve up.

My only qualm with the soup/bisque is that it does come in a box. I tend not to buy soups in boxes. If it were in a can it would be more appealing to my family. Or if it is to be in a box, maybe make it easier to get into like a screw off top., instead of having to use a knife to cut a hole in the top.

All in all it was a great tasting soup, which is always excepted from a classic like Campbell’s.

If you want more information on Campbell’s and other products of theirs visit them at www.campbellssoup.com

Thank you Cravebox for the opportunity to try out this wonderful product!

Teething Bling Giveaway with Review Post


Here is their commitment to safety if you are concerned:
Our Commitment to Safety

Teething Bling ® pendants, bangles and keychains are made from the same silicone as most teething toys; for example - the 'coated' infant spoons we all use. Our products contain no harmful chemicals such as phthalates, BPAs, PVCs, lead or latex and all pendants come with a breakaway clasp as an added safety measure. We are CPSIA compliant, carry the CE mark (meaning we meet the strict European safety standards as well) and our materials are federally approved. Safety is our number one concern - and all test reports are available upon request.

Occasionally a customer will ask if Teething Bling ® is appropriate for a child of a certain age. Our products are designed for adults to wear to soothe and entertain babies with emerging teeth. Children with fully developed teeth may be able to bite through Teething Bling ®. Therefore, parents must determine what is best for their own situation and child and as always, we remind everyone that children - of any age - should never be left unattended with jewelry of any kind.

Tons of star moms love these stylish necklaces also. Tori Spelling, Angela Basset, Holly Robinson Peete abd Ming Na!
These necklaces and bangles come in many different colors and designs. I love the black one that we received to test and review. Danelle, 11 weeks, loves it! Right now she mainly hangs on the cords but if we put it in her mouth she sucks and gums it for all she's worth. I am able to wear my necklace to church in a fancy setting and even at home or to store with a hoodie. The black goes with everything! I would really love to get another cutsie color now. These run anywhere from $16-$24 each. But are well worth the money they cost.

Teething Bling also has a few lines to choose from not just the one. The newest line is the beaded line. Very stylish. Then there are Signature, Patterned, Ring Pendants, Shimmer, a Sports line in your fav teams colors, Triangle pendants and even Tween bling for siblings. Then they have the Bangles!

We received the Onyx Donut Shaped Pendant

We have received quite a few compliments on it and been asked where I got it. Great bit of advertising for Teething Bling!

The one I would love to get now is in the Shimmer line:

Oh I almost forgot their new mens line for dads! It is Babe Magnet Ties.
Finally, something Dads can wear to soothe and entertain babies!

Our ties look just like 'regular' ties but safely tucked inside each one is a surprise: a squeaker and a rattle to delight curious babies.

Ties that Surprise - now, that's a Smart DAD!

This is a wonderful company with a wonderful product for all you moms out there! Go check them out.

Hiding In The Sunshine Book Review

Hiding in Sunshine is the work of a father and daughter duo who reside in the immediate area where these fictional events transpire. John Stuart is a successful high tech entrepreneur. Caitlin Stuart is a student and an aspiring writer with a lifelong love of reading and telling stories. This is their first co-authored novel - and is proof that a teenager and her dad can indeed collaborate amicably and productively!

Book Blurb:
Living lives of quiet affluence in a historic, suburban Boston town, Gavin and Lisa Brinkley had no idea how quickly and decisively their lives, and those of their two young daughters, could be upended. A series of events - a mysterious break-in at their home, some menacing tailgating on the highway from Boston, a startling visit from an F.B.I. agent warning of an imminent kidnapping attempt - leads to the family's abrupt uprooting from its comfortable existence into a terrifying new existence on the run, under new identities. This taut thriller by a father-daughter team follows the eleven-year odyssey of an American family on the run, in hiding through the mountain states of the American west, where survival skills and living off the grid are paramount, but so are friendship, cooperation, and resilience. The enemy, always lurking just out of sight, is a foreign cyber-criminal enterprise that launches breathtaking assaults on the American banking system and physical infrastructure, but the Brinkleys also know that the threat is deeply personal, reaching ever closer to them from the shadows of the past. At the same time, Gavin and Lisa discover the perils of wandering too close to the edges of the dark side, in the murky world of cyber-security. A compelling story of suspense and treachery, HIDING IN SUNSHINE is also a celebration of a family's abiding love and courage -- and a young girl's faith in the triumph of the truth.

You can purchase this book through Amazon:


Barnes and Noble:

I received this from Influenster to read. Was a great book full of suspense. Kept you reading till the very end! I was impressed by them and will watch for new books coming out by these 2! Not very many people could take the time to sit down with their fathers and talk let alone write a book, they did a great job! You will love Gavin and Lisa!
