Winners and Upcoming Reviews

Four great giveaways came to an end last night, which means four more congratulations emails to send out that will hopefully brighten a few people's day!

As we've been using our My Reward Chart from Little Billies for quite a while now, it's been great to see the improvements in both Big Sister E's behavior and my own ability to remember to reward or praise her when she has done something well or is acting like the great kid I know she can be. All that from adorable magnets! The lucky person who can do some shopping at Little Billies with a $25 gift certificate is...


Congratulations, Shelly! I hope these help for you as well!

Little Sister B is getting closer to walking on her own, as she'll now take a few steps between two things or people that are nearby... although she looks a little more like she's falling and just happens to get her legs to move in time to keep her up. No hurry though, we can always continue to practice with our back-saving Walking Wings from UpSpring Baby. I think I'd be permanently hunched over if we didn't have this unique product to use! The two lucky people who will be receiving these for themselves are...


Congratulations, SocialStudiesSoubrette (blue) and AmyLynn (pink)! I hope the little ones in your lives have fun learning to walk with these!

RandomLine makes such great games that really encourage kids to use their imagination... and they don't even realize that they're doing something educational at the same time. Big Sister E still loves playing Alphabet SQUIGGLE and I love that it is helping her learn to write her letters while we play. The lucky person who will get to choose their favorite RandomLine game is...


Congratulations, Nancye! I hope your family enjoys playing one of these fun games!

It is actually bright and sunny outside my window right now and it's making me think spring might arrive at some point! However, that means no more hiding under my layers of clothing, so it's time to get fit and lose a few pounds. Even though my lack of willpower and laziness worked against me, using the EIROfit weight management system was a good step in the right direction for becoming a little healthier. The lucky person who will get to try out this great program is...


Congratulations, Deb! I hope this helps you move towards your weight loss goal!

Thanks to everyone who entered these great giveaways! You may have noticed that it was a little quiet around Thanks, Mail Carrier this week and that's because Big Sister E and I hopped on a plane last weekend and jetted off to visit my mom at her winter home in sunny Arizona. Unfortunately it managed to be overcast and rainy the first few days that we were there, but the trip ended with beautiful weather (it's definitely not often that I'm strolling around a gorgeous zoo in a tank top in February).

After getting a good night's sleep (mmm, my own bed sure felt welcoming) I'm ready to get back into the groove of things and that means great giveaways! I have an entire week of Traveling With Children reviews that will start on Monday, so if you have any plans to hit the skies or the road with kids, you'll definitely want to tune in to check out some great products that will help you stay organized, safe, entertained and more.

That's not all, of course. I also have a pile of other great giveaways to come that you'll definitely want to check out, whether you are interested in items for children, adults, the whole family... it's good to be home again!

oh I miss tank tops. Can't go anywhere right now, so much snow that when the plow went by, he blocked my jeep in my driveway!

I love the name of your blog, but I need to know, do you actually tip your mail carrier around Christmas time? I know your supposed to, but we didn't this year, and we get a LOT of (super awesome) mail! Plus I sell on eBay and have small packages going out a few times a week. I really feel like we should have tipped him!
That's why I wanna hear from YOU, the writer behind the blog "Thanks, Mail Carrier," did YOU tip your mail carrier?
