Jeepers! It's January Hop

Happy New Year!

What better way to kick off the new year than with a giveaway! I am so excited to join The Mommy Island, The Kids Did It and 90+ other fab blogs in the first big giveaway hop of 2018!

Here’s your chance to start the new year off with a win. One lucky Three Boys and an Old Lady blog reader will receive a $15 Walmart eGift card. $10 may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to stock up on some last minute Christmas clearance gifts. Trust me. I bought a 6’ Christmas tree WITH lights, 2 animal massagers, 3 Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser, Christmas cards and wrapping paper less than $20 during an after Christmas Walmart shopping trip.

I was searching for some cough syrup when my friend’s kid spotted the Jelly Belly BeanBoozled Jelly Beans Mystery Bean Dispenser on sale for 50 cents. What a steal! The regular price is $10 so to find them on sale for 50 cents was a deal. We cleared the shelves.

A few rows down we spotted some animal neck massagers for $2. The regular price was $9.88. A quick scan at the price checker and into the shopping cart went the giraffe and unicorn for me and my friend picked up the puppy and pig. What a deal huh?
My kid wanted to gift the giraffe neck massager to his girlfriend because she likes giraffes.  It was only $2 so I obliged.

The cards and wrapping paper were a quarter each and as I was filling my cart with several rolls of wrapping paper, I spotted a 6’ artificial tree on sale for $8. I checked the price on the price checker scanner and it scanned for $7.50. I wanted to be doubly sure because this was too good of a deal so I grabbed a store clerk and lo and behold the price was $7.50. What a bargain. The tree itself is normally priced at around $70 and I’m getting it for less than $10. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.

I raced to the checkout lane like the price was going to change and was so ready to chime in with “No, it’s $7.50” if the price rang up incorrectly, but nope it rang up as it should and I was out the door with a cart full of goodies and a jumpstart on Christmas 2018.

Now I don’t know if you’ll be able to find any deals like I did but a $15 Walmart eGift card will definitely come in handy.

Oh, for my fellow blogging buddies, be sure to check out upcoming giveaway hops hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island. I’ve been participating in their blog hops for a couple of years now and they are easy to work with and a great way to connect with some other fab blogs.

Hello Spring!  

I am so excited for Spring 2018.  Not that I have anything major planned or anything.  Well, I am on a cruise right now.  Oh yeah, I'm on my way to Cozumel for a few days of rest, relaxation and margaritas.  

What a way to welcome Spring huh?  What about you?  What are your Spring travel plans?  Are you and the family hitting the road?  Catching a flight somewhere?  Where ya headed?

Nothing like a little extra spending money when on vacation and I am so excited for this Rain Rain Go Away! Giveaway Hop.  This is my 3rd year participating in this fun hop sponsored by The Mommy Island and The Kids Did It and each year it gets bigger and bigger.  

There are some really great prizes up for grabs and add some new blogs to your reading list plus your chance to win a $40 Visa eGift Card.  Why $40 you ask.  Well that's because I-40 is the interstate we typically travel to most of our Spring Break destinations.

Life is a Beach Giveaway Hop

Spring is in full swing.  The birds are singin'.  The pollen is falling and temps are FINALLY warming up.  So what better time time to start planning our Summer getaways.

This year - as always - we are beach bound.  It's one of our fave places to visit given we only get to the beach once or twice a year.  

Last year's visit to Cozumel was one for the record books. We stopped by this little restaurant and dined on grilled shrimp in a cabana right on the beach.  
'Ohana also has a line of tequilas in flavors I had never seen before.  Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango and pina colada.  Hubby and I tried the 'Ohana peanut butter tequila.  The owner said folks either love it or hate it... we LOVED it!!!
As I was sipping all I could think of was how good this peanut butter tequila would taste as a baste on my tequila wings.  It would be like a tequila satay wings type dish.
