Zoobles - So cute!

I saw my nieces last weekend. Since my kids are teenagers now, I always like finding out what are the new toys that they like to play with. I usually buy both of them a small Christmas gift so this is also my sneaky way of finding out what to buy for them.

Both girls are still playing with Littlest Pet Shop toys which I think are adorable. But now they are also playing with a new toy called Zoobles. Zoobles came out last year. You can make the Zooble form into a ball and then it springs open when it touches something metal. Of course, they are a variety of playsets and different Zoobles to buy. The zoobles are really cute. Also the girls can play online Zoobles games for free. Unlike Webkinz, you don't need a code to access the online games.

In addition to those toys, the girls love Squinkies too! It will be a hard choice to decide what to buy them for Christmas. Any other ideas?

Halloween Countdown: Buycostumes.com Review


Halloween is coming! Have you started looking for your costume? I found the most awesome costume at Buycostumes.com! Almost even better than the costume was how easy it was to find a costume that I liked. I didn't have to run around to a bunch of stores looking through their small selection of costumes. Buycostumes.com has almost every costume imaginable for any age.

So my costume is Gingy the gingerbread man from Shrek. I just absolutely love it. It is so adorable! I am going to wear it to a Halloween party and for handing out candy. The neighborhood kids are going love it when I hand out candy as Gingy!











Why should you buy a costume from Buycostumes.com?

• Easy to find costumes by age category, price range or search by character.
• Hassle free return policy for unworn costumes within 14 days
• No driving around looking for a costume
• Competitive prices on their costumes and accessories
• Personal comments on costume pages help when deciding on costumes


I want to talk about the fact the Buycostumes.com allows buyers to comment on the costumes. I found this extremely useful when looking at different costumes. Sometimes you can get great ideas for how to dress up your costume from the comments that have been left. In addition, people's comments may point out flaws in the costume design itself and how they fixed it. For example, the Gingy costume has huge head which tends to flop down. People suggested putting something like a craft fiber fill in the top of the head. I did that and the head stays up perfectly as you can see in the photo!

Right now, Buycostumes.com has a couple of discount codes:
• Buy one costume, get the second costume 25% off. Use code BOGO25
• Save 15%
when you sign up for their emails

• Free shipping when your order is over $70. No code needed.

So if you are looking for a costume, check out Buycostumes.com for your Halloween costumes and accessories!

** I did receive a costume to review from Buycostumes.com . As always the opinions and ideas expressed here are my own. **

AutoZone Labor Day Car Safety Tips and Giveaway




Well, summer is almost over and fall will be here soon. Many families hit the road for Labor Day weekend. The first three day weekend after school starts is a great time to enjoy a road trip getaway. Every year my family attends a family reunion picnic on Labor Day weekend.

AutoZone wants to remind you to stay safe when traveling this Labor Day weekend. Because of the slow economy, people have been keeping their cars instead of purchasing a new ones. A frugal way to save some cash but you need to remember to keep up on the maintenance of your car. Preventive maintenance can help you keep your car repair bills low and keep you from being stranded at the side of the road.

Here are Summer Car Safety Tips from AutoZone:

• Perform routine scheduled maintenance checks. Motorists should check their owner’s manual for a schedule of recommended maintenance intervals from the vehicle manufacturer. If the owner’s manual has been lost, many websites, such as the National Car Care Council’s web site www.carcare.org, offer a recommended maintenance schedule for vehicles.

• Be proactive. Don’t wait for a breakdown to check under the hood. Replacing engine components at required intervals can help prevent an unexpected breakdown.

• Be prepared. Visit an automotive retailer such as AutoZone® to purchase a roadside emergency kit. Also keep items such as a tire pressure gauge, spare serpentine belt and jumper cables handy.

• Check and replace vital vehicle components at recommended intervals. Regular maintenance can prevent costly damage, improve fuel efficiency and prevent an unwanted breakdown. Also keep items such as a tire pressure gauge, spare serpentine belt and jumper cables handy.

• Check and maintain all fluid levels. Consider a quality, synthetic motor oil like Mobil 1 Advanced Fuel Economy to improve fuel efficiency and engine performance. Also, be sure your antifreeze is up to the task for hot summer temperatures. Replace it if needed according to recommended service intervals.

• Test the battery annually. Testing the battery during the summer months can help to avoid being stranded during the hottest time of the year.

• Replace spark plugs as recommended. Spark plugs can affect fuel efficiency, emissions and economy. Change spark plugs at the proper interval.

• Replace oxygen sensors as recommended. Replacing oxygen sensors at the recommended time can significantly improve gas mileage. Check and replace one- and two-wire sensors every 30,000-50,000 miles and every 60,000-100,000 miles for “heated” type oxygen sensors.

• Keep the air filter clean. Replacing a clogged air filter can lead to increased performance and acceleration. Air filters should be checked at every oil change.

Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Cookies & AMEX Winner

I hope that everyone has had fun making their 6 ingredient or less desserts as part of the American Express Blue cards promotion of Blue Cash Dinner @6 Giveaway. I have just had so much fun! There were so many great entries into the giveaway that I wish I could choose more than one. I decided to use the random number generator to pick the winner. I am going to keep you in suspense while I talk about my last 6 ingredient or less dessert recipe.

Mini Bacon Cheeseburger Cookies



These are great little treats that kids really love making in the kitchen. They are perfect for taking to a summer potluck or for school parties.



Ingredients:
Box of Vanilla wafers
Box of Grasshopper cookies
Vanilla frosting
Food coloring
Coconut
Wildfire or strawberry fruit roll-ups

First, put 1/4 cup coconut in a sandwich bag. Add several drops pf green food coloring and mix it together. Continue to add drops of green food coloring until the coconut turns green. Next, mix some frosting and yellow food coloring together in a small bowl. This will be your cheese and will help hold the bacon cheeseburger together.

Take a vanilla wafer and dab a small amount of white frosting on the flat side. Place a chocolate-covered cookie, face up, on top of the white frosting on the wafer. Press the chocolate-covered cookie down slightly so it'll stick to the frosting. Then take a few shredded strips of fruit roll up and place them on top of the chocolate cookie. Make sure that the fruit roll up extends over the edge of the chocolate cookie. Next place a large dollop of yellow frosting on top of the fruit rool-up. Then sprinkle on some green coconut. Now take a new vanilla wafer cookie and press down gently on top of the coconut and yellow frosting. Press enough so it stays together and so it looks like cheese is oozing out of the bun.

Now it looks just like a mini bacon cheeseburger!

So now without further ado..... the winner of the $600 American Express gift card is #5 My4boysand1

Here are your random numbers:

5

Timestamp: 2011-08-01 23:59:04 UTC


I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond. If I do not hear from the winner, I will draw a new name.

Thanks again to everyone who entered!

Win $600 Gift Card & Mint Brownie Cake Balls Recipe

Wow, that week sure went fast! So are you interested in winning the $600 American Express gift card? Last week on Monday, I talked about the new American Express Blue cards where you can earn up to 6% back on your groceries. In addition, they are sponsoring a $600 American Express gift card giveaway to reader of my blog! This is a awesome prize!

Entering to win the $600 gift card is easy! You just have to post a comment with a dessert recipe with 6 ingredients or less on the my post, American Express Blue Cards & $600 Giveaway. You could be a big winner! Hurry because entries end on July 31st and I will post the winner on August 1st.

Last week, I posted a nice healthy low calorie dessert. Well, it is a good thing that you saved your calories! Here is my dessert recipe for this week with 6 ingredients.

Jr Mint Brownie Cake Balls

Ingredients:
Brownie mix (make according to directions on box)
Eggs ( for the brownies)
Oil (for the brownies)
Can of vanilla frosting
Bag of chocolate chips
Box of Jr Mints

First, make the brownies according to the directions on the box. Let the brownies cool for a little while and then crumble then into a bowl. Stir in the vanilla frosting. I use about 3/4 of the can of frosting. Stir until the brownies and frosting are mixed together.

Put the mixture in the refrigerator for about 1/2 hour. This will make it easier to roll into balls. Take a Jr Mint and then take some of the brownie cake mixture, roll it around the Jr Mint so it forms a small ball. Don't worry if the Jr Mint gets squished. Place the balls on wax paper. When finished making balls, put them in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours.



After the 2 hours, melt the chocolate chips in a double boiler. When the chips are melted, dip in a brownie cake ball and roll it around so it is covered in chocolate. You can use a fork or spoon to lift the dipped cake ball onto wax paper. After dipping all the cake balls, put them in the refrigerator until the chocolate is hard.





So yummy! I confess that I will eat these right after they have been dipped in chocolate. I just can't stand waiting to have one!
