Kind of like a Fraternal Twin Giveaway!

We just had to let you know about maybe the coolest giveaway (since our last one) yet! We like to think of it as a “fraternal twin” giveaway because it’s a giveaway, but with nothing in common except these things are used for babies and kids…

Alright. Alright. We weren’t going to make you guess or anything so we will cut to the chase so you can hurry up and enter to win!

The first is a must have as far as kids go. Comfort for your child and having your Mommy mind at ease is the perfect combination for a successful shopping trip or night out at a restaurant. The secret to the success is a KozyPal Cart Cover! Mmm Hmm. Yep. That’s right! These covers are stylish…they keep your child comfy cozy in those metal shopping carts…and also prevent the horror of your child eating that macaroni noodle she dropped in the restaurant high chair.

You need one.

We have one.

So, here is your chance to get one! KozyPal is giving away TWO $50 gift certificates to shop in their online store. With such good prices you could get one for yourself and your fraternal twin! Just go on over to the KozyPal blog to enter. Good luck!


Did we mention that these covers are handmade?! Very cool!

Now on to the other half of the giveaway. Just before Christmas and before our “sabbatical”, we were given the chance to welcome two cuddly friends into our homes; Hello Kitty and Hal the Moose. After a few weeks of sister fights over who would get to dis-robe and sleep with the Hello Kitty and poor Hal only being used for the pretty lights in his antlers, things have died down enough for us to be able to share the Build-a-Bear love with all of you!

Since the theme is fraternal twin giveway (so silly, we know) we have two gift cards to Build-A-Bear Workshop to giveaway!

First Prize: $25 giftcard

Second Prize: $10 giftcard

Sorry, no third or runner-up prizes–this isn’t like those child pageants were the non-winners still get a trophy. Either you win or you don’t. You could increase your chances by earning extra entries (*wink) and here is how to enter:

Win a gift card to Build-A-Bear!

  1. My New Years Resolution is to be more organized. I’m now opening mail as soon as I get it. Tossing out the garbage, paying the bills immediately.

  2. WOW! That is better than I can say for myself. What a great resolution…as we speak (or type) my bills and mail are sitting on my mantel. Unopened! So, good for you!~

  3. Our New Years Resolution is “Be Happy” and do our BEST. We had a hard last year with many major changes. My kids have amazed me through it all.

  4. Lucky 27…..that’s how old I am! My New Years resolution was to make better of our spending. Rather than going out for pizza once a week, I would buy frozen, and rent a movie for $1. Saves us a ton, and plus we get to be together with the kids.

  5. Well, my goals for 2009 are as follows:

    1. I want to invent a secret formula spritzer that when pumped a few times outside my door, will repel all the multitudes of ravishing supermodels that stamped here regularly trying to steal my kisses.

    2. Also in 2009, I’d like to successfully figure out how to pressure wash the 4th story level of my multi-million dollar mansion.

    3. I’d like to start exaggerating a little less.


  6. I started doing the mail last year too- its amazing how much you save just by tossing the catalogs as soon as you shake them when they come thru the money and less clutter. I am trying this year to be healthier – not just for me but the whole family- buying less junk food even if its a deal, its not a deal if its not good for them and not healthy. No, we are not perfect but gonna try to bring less in the door so I am not the enabler to junk food eating around here. With that also goes portion control, realistic portion control for me and others, especially husband and reminding him to let food settle before he shovels—oops I mean spoons anymore on the plate – even if it means making plates and putting the extra away before we sit down.

  7. My new year’s resolution is to maintain my health by exercising daily.

  8. I made a huge New Years Resolution list but after 2 days realized it was a bit too much…now I am just trying to take better care of myself (actually eat lunch and drink more water). And to remember that no matter what’s going on, our lives are blessed!
    Oh, and to try and stop eating my cookie stash in the bathroom….it’s not going so well so far! 🙂

  9. We all resolved to eat more healthy and organic foods, to use our treadmill, and to just get rid of the bad food habits we’ve acquired over the years. Not easy, but it’s a challenge we need to take.

  10. My resolution has been to finish a half-ironman

  11. My resolution is to NOT gain weight!

  12. My new years resolution is keep my family organized in every aspect of home, work and school.

  13. I am an artist, so my New Year’s resolution is to paint faster, produce more and better art. An, of course sell more art through a gallery.

  14. In 2009 I want to be more organized, healthier and more optimistic.These things are all possible and achievable by me and my family. Also want to pay down debt as much as possible.

  15. Losing weight, saving money, and a zillion other things to get it together.

  16. I am working on losing weight that I gained last year — especially because of the health problems it is causing me. Thanks so much for the contest.

  17. My goal for this year is to become better organized, which in turn will help simplify my life. I hope to have more time for family, just to relax & enjoy being together.

  18. We want to add to our home orchard. We are going more and more green all the time. Growing our own fruit is to help with economics but also to replenish the earth by growing trees that bear fruit, Vines and a veggie garden. Composting is huge on our list for this year.

  19. My mother will be moving in with us in a couple of months so my New Years resolution is to be tolerant and not too sensitive in order to make the transition as s mooth as possible for all parties concerend.

  20. Thank you for having this. My resolutions have included getting out of credit card debt. I am on a budget and have wrote everything down. I truly believe with our small income we can do it.

  49. My New Year’s resolution is to get organized, once and for all. I have stuff everywhere but nowhere that I can find it. I will know that I absolutely have some item but I can’t find it and I end up going and buying another one rather than keep looking for it in my storage chaos.

  50. Our goals are to declutter the house and to become better organized. We also have committed to spend more time together as a family doing something fun like playing games or some sort of outing.

  51. My new years resolution for 2009 is to smile more. Wow, sounds easy enough doesn’t it but it is not. This last year was a hard year for my family and I and there really hasn’t been a lot to smile about. My resolution is to relax, enjoy and be thankful for what I do have and to quit stressing what I don’t have and what I cannot change. Since I start each day on the computer I have put a smile face sticker in the corner of the monitor, it reminds me to smile. I have the same on my bathroom mirror, my refridgerator, etc… Just little reminders throughout my day to remind me to smile. So far so good, it has been working. I have found myself being less grouchy. Smiles spread and I have noticed the tone in my household is different. Life is just to short to let it pass by frowning.

    Thank you for the chance and if you read this, SMILE, one more person I have spread it to.
