Splendid Littles For Target Review and a Target Giveaway

Target is my favorite store so when I had the chance to do a review of their new line, Splendid Littles, and give away a Target giftcard to one of my readers I jumped at it. I was sent a whole box of goodies from Target and BabyCenter and am excited to share the line with you. Here are a few of my favorite items from the line:

My first thoughts on these clothes when I saw them were that they were fun and modern. I loved the bright colors and how soft they were, too. Jacob, my two year old, is starting to get pickier with his clothing and pulls and chews on it when something is uncomfortable and he wore one of the Splendid Littles hoodies without a problem.

June Is Going To Be Awesome (Giveaway)

I am so happy that it is finally June! Here are ten reasons why:

1) My firstborn turns TWO on the 4th!

2) My “baby” turns ONE on the 25th!

3) June brings the official “start” of my favorite season (though it feels like summer has been here in Chicago for a few weeks now).

4) Lots of fresh fruits and veggies and grilling out means I’m eating healthier.

5) Spending most of our day outside means that the boys sleep well at night which means I get more sleep, too.

6) We will go on our first picnic of the year.

7) The boys get to wear their matching “My Dad Is Rad” t-shirts on Father’s Day.

8) Garage Sales, Farmer’s Markets, and Festivals will make our weekends fun!

9) We get to spend a lot of time with our friends and family this month.

10) THE “BIRTHDAY BASH” EVENT IS HERE!!!!!!!! To celebrate Jake and Luke’s birthdays I am throwing a blog party and you are all invited! There are going to be giveaways every weekday for the whole month of June and just for fun I may even add a few in on the weekends.

Let’s start things off right now!

The first giveaway this month will be a $25 gift card to my favorite store…. TARGET! There is only one way you can win this and that is by becoming a subscriber (RSS or email) and leaving a comment here on this post to let me know that you subscribe. The winner will be chosen on July 1st.

Subscribing is FREE and easy to do… On the right hand side, in the sidebar toward the top of this page there are two sections. One says “Don’t miss a post!” and one says “Receive new posts by email”. Choosing either of those helps ensure you won’t miss a giveaway this month. Please make sure to confirm your subscription when you get a confirmation email.

Disclosure: Target did not provide me with the gift card.

Make sure to check back tomorrow and the rest of this month for new giveaways! :)

Think Outside The (Easter) Basket

Every Easter I buy baskets to put goodies in. I don’t just pick any old basket. I take my time. I choose the cutest baskets I can find. I then search multiple stores for yummy candies and fun toys. I buy the colorful Easter grass so that I can nestle the goodies in the basket. I organize the items in the basket so each one can be seen. Get my drift here? This Easter basket takes a few hours to prepare. Here is Jacob’s Easter basket last year (it was his first Easter basket):

Easter 2009

Wasn’t it cute? Jacob was young so not a lot of goodies but a decent amount. He loves the fridge DJ and the Thomas book. His dad and I enjoyed the candy. And the basket… well, I’m not sure where the basket is. It may be in a box in storage. It may have been given to Goodwill when we moved…. I just don’t know!

So this year we aren’t doing baskets. I just can’t stand the thought of spending $5-10 on something that we will not be keeping. And now that I have two children the cost goes up! So this year we are skipping the baskets and instead we are giving each of the children their “goodies” in these rolling toy bins that I found at Target.

Aren’t they wonderful?! They were more expensive to buy than baskets but I know that they will be used after Easter, too. We could always use more toy storage and these are sturdy, mobile, and have handles for easy lifting. I love them! :)
