Cisco Linksys Wireless Router

Isn't it amazing how much we rely on our computers? I feel like my whole life is dependent on a spreadsheet, a blog, or a T.V. monitor. So in order to keep it all up and running, a nice wireless router is invaluable! Cisco Linksys has all sorts of gadgets to assist our technological living, and the E4200 router is at the top of their achievements. It offers speed, coverage, and security! My husband and I will probably be investing in one of these....

That is if we don't WIN it over at The Bragging Mommy. They are giving away this wireless router to one lucky winner - ends June 29th.

Kristin's Car Seat Canopy

I have seen these Car Seat Canopies around, and I love the idea! They have become increasingly popular and I can see why! I imagine having one of these is much nicer than the "throw-a-blanket-over" approach. I know a few people who are making them, but I really like Kristin's style.

She has a knack for finding cute fabrics and sometimes adds buttons or even rick rack! Look at this adorable planes,trains,and trucks fabric: And the adorable plane patch on the other side as well!
Kristin is even willing to do custom work, and make specific variations for your little one. I am so very excited that she is offering a giveaway on her own site! Yes, Take It From Me's very own Kristin is the one behind this beautiful work. And yes, you can win a car seat canopy of your choice! Get more details at their site, and be sure to enter before July 6th! Be sure to tell them how much you appreciate them!

I loved reading when I was a kid - and still do! I would find a cute little nook somewhere and read for hours, and sometimes even get in trouble for reading when I was supposed to be doing other things. My Mom would also read to me every night before I went to sleep (until I was embarrassingly old actually.)  So I guess that is why I really appreciate good books and people who make it their business to make good books available. Thank you Barefoot Books!

So this is an extra special giveaway for all you reading/book lovers out there. Or those of you who have kids who LOVE the library. Start building your own library at home! Visit Take It From Me and enter to win a Barefoot Book of your choice!

I've told you before, and I am telling you again --- Eden's Fantasy is a great online resource for lingerie. 

When it comes to the "Lingerie" word I usually look the other way, but this shop has something for everyone. Even someone of my conservative taste. Instead of going to Victoria Secret or another shop, you can order something new online and not worry about the uncomfortable sales representatives :)

 So just a heads up that you should go check out the Eden Fantasy shop, and enter the $55 giveaway at Dang Gina! You can put in your entries until August 3rd.

Lil Roos

Here we go everyone! An EXCELLENT chance to win the exact baby carrier you want. This Lil Roo's Giveaway over at the Bragging Mommy will be giving the winner a choice between three different types! The Action Carrier, A Moby Wrap, or a Wrap and Wear. My personal preference is the Action Carrier!

"Unlike a sling or a wrap or even a metal frame back pack style carrier, a soft structured carrier works similar to a back pack.  It has no metal frames, so it is ultra comfortable and allows for the baby to be directly next to your body. This is amazingly comfortable because the baby becomes part of your body weight and you do not have to strain your muscles to support the weight of the baby.  It also allows for both front and back carrying.  Making it ideal for young infants all the way to your toddlers and young children."

I love that you can wear it on the front OR the back, and that they have simple styles mixed in with the fun ones. I'm very excited about this giveaway. Go check it out before June 27th!

Take It From Me is hosting a giveaway and the winner will receive a shopping cart cover of their choice! This chance ends June 22nd so get your entries in!

Polar Pillow

There is nothing like that "other-side-of-the-pillow" feeling. The cool surface on your face is almost exhilarating to me! So when I discovered this Polar Pillow over at the Bragging Mommy - I had to share the good news!

Just a cute little blue pillow - but oh the possibilities. It's self cooling and works within 10 seconds of laying down. If I win, I will be in heaven. :)  Giveaway ends June 28th.

Mother's Touch Thermometer

"Over the course of history, there has been nothing more natural for a mother to do with a sick child than to touch her hand to his forehead to check for a fever.  This comforting act has never been scientific… until now! Now, from Medisim, the leaders in non-invasive thermometry, comes the MothersTouch™ thermometer. It is the first and only thermometer of its kind, and it is the most intuitive, gentle method of accurately getting a child’s temperature reading.  A mother gently places the base of the thermometer to her child’s temple for just 6-8 seconds and, with no effort or discomfort, gets a quick and accurate measurement."

Check out the Mother's Touch Website. You can enter to win one at Take It From Me until June 15th.


What a clever idea! A organization tool for new parents so they know how long ITZBEEN since the baby _______ ?


Here it is in their words:
ITZBEEN™ Baby Care Timer was developed by a new mom and dad who found themselves sleep-deprived and needing help to remember baby care details, such as when their baby last ate or napped. They tried charts and journals, but thought there had to be a better way. So, they created the ITZBEEN™: a multi-purpose nursery tool that helps new parents remember the basic details of baby care. The ITZBEEN™ has four timers that count up with the touch of a button, and a host of other helpful features, all designed with the needs of a new parent in mind.

Enter the giveaway at TakeItFromMe until June 15th
