Christmas in October?

29 09 2008

Some people have decided that the season of giving will come early on their blogs with some really neat giveaways in October. Jennifer and I have some things planned too towards the end of the month, but, in the meantime, you have to check these sites out!

The Not-So-Blog Blog is throwing a week-long Spook-tacular Sweepstakes.
The Not-So-BlogThe first giveaway is an
adorably sweet treat bag from Mimi and Reese. I am in love with these tote bags! The 2nd giveaway is a Tupperware Fall Collectible Tumbler Set.  


Momma FindingsMomma Findings is sure to light up the week with her own spooky giveaways. You can win a cute Litewear shirt for your pumpkin. Kids love lights, right? I guess teens do too—the 2nd giveaway is a flirty juniors litewear shirt.


Over at Sister and Sister, they also  have a giveaway week. I know you really want a Spider! (A Mutsy Spider Stroller, that is!) 


So, have fun reading some new blogs or visiting old friends. I’ll update with other prizes as they are revealed.

Cute Shoes for the Big Kids

29 09 2008

My son started out life at 10lbs 5oz. At that size, he was already too big for all the cute little newborn shoes. And now he is quickly growing into the toddler shoes we already have from his older brother. The ones his older brother is quickly growing out of! I keep my eye out for cute shoes in bigger sizes, but it always seems the bigger the size, the duller the shoe. (Especially for boys.)

Well, fret no more- check out the Eleven Collection! These shoes are currently offered in children’s sizes 9-1 and boast durable, leather upper construction as well as a selection of fun styles for both boys and girls. Even though my kids are boys, my favorite shoe is the Anya– maybe I’ll have to get one for my niece to wear!

And to make this discovery even better, Elizabeth at S.I.M.P.L.E. is graciously hosting a giveaway now through October 7. Check out her site for a ton of other great products that she showcases and reviews.
