Jumpstart.com 12 Months Membership Giveaway! CLOSED

January 9, 2010
Jump Into Learning All Year Long!
With Jumpstart.com.

It has been nearly a year since my kids have been members of the Jumpstart.com online 3-D world. My 5yrold is now reading level 1 books, I think he shocks himself at times! My middle child is still totally enamored of the more creative artistic portions of the site. She especially loves the fashion show parts!

Take a look at all the new areas that have been added to Jumpstart.com this year! If you haven’t jumped into Jumpstart.com for a while, it’s worth taking a fresh look:

Plus we love that the ‘world’ is decorated for the holidays, complete with fireworks and wintery themes! Can’t wait to see what Valentine’s will bring!

From the Jumstart.com Blog:

PhotobucketIt is amazing to think that just one short year ago, our online game was a single-player world with only one major portal – StoryLand. Now, from the moment you enter JumpStart.com, you are surrounded by dancing Jumpeez, swerving rides, bouncing pets, and grinning emoticons. Plus, with the addition of the FutureLand, AdventureLand, MarineLand, SpeedDrome, DownTown, and Neighborhood portals, MainStreet is just the beginning of the fun.

GIVEAWAY: Patient Style, Gifts For Mom!

December 16, 2009

NOTE: CONTEST IS CLOSED

Improving the Patient Experience

Photobucket
Who in your life is pregnant and heading to the hospital soon?
What a perfect gift idea for that mom on your list!
PatientStyle.com has a large selection of maternity patient gowns
I called my local birthing center and they totally approved of wearing your own stylish gown!

I’m not having any babies but I recently needed foot surgery and I would have loved a pretty patient gown to wear instead of the ugly paper-towels they clothe you with in the hospital?? Check out all the different designs of the PatientStyle gowns.

goodncrazy blue dots

AND!
A whole selection of pretty pajamas for the mom AND dad on your list (heck for yourself)!

Are these the bestest jammies ever?? I love the day glow pink bubble gum dots… and my 9yrold daughter is totally jealous!!

Every Christmas Eve we let the kids open ONE gift. And they already know what will be inside…. Pajamas! In fact I think they would be seriously upset if I sneaked something different into their one open gift tradition… they love it, even if they complain a wee bit.

Great gift ideas like for expecting moms, and an eclectic mixture of patient gowns, fabulous gift baskets, anti-microbial items, and my favorite: Pajamas!!

Diabetic Healthy Lifestyle Basket
11 Items – $75
I love this. I recently had a friend who’s child was diagnosed with diabetes, plus my husband is type I, and my mom is type II.

Snowman Pajama Set
$40
Totally my favorite set on the site!

I’m scheming and planning about what I’ll be buying this year for my Little Tikes. I have a 5yrold little boy who is ne-ar-ly read-ing. He’s there. He almost has it down. And he is in LOVE with anything building, creating, science-y project-y…. bottom line he loves learning. He hasn’t discovered it’s WORK yet!

{SHHHH! We are NOT telling him.}

The other day my oldest kid in Jr. High told him she doesn’t like her science class. (The teacher’s a grump.)

His eyes nearly bugged out of his head! ‘You don’t like Science!?‘ I could see his brain smoking! He was thinking.. I’m in KINDERGARTEN what I would give to have science class!

Thanksgiving With Joshua Bell

November 21, 2009
I’m Thankful for…

PhotobucketPeople who are building homes and remodeling. Why? Because they are keeping my husband in a job and therefore keeping our family warm.

Photobucket20 year olds who make the decision to go to college and become school teachers… even though they know the salary sucks, and benefits are getting worse. Why? Because they are teaching my children and sharing their dreams with mine.

PhotobucketA country of freedom, where immigrants are welcome. Why? Because my great-great grandparents didn’t grow up in this country… instead they immigrated here and I DID.

PhotobucketReligious bigotry in a country built on Religious Freedom. Why? Because the founders of my religion were likely made stronger as they were forced from their homes, banded together and eventually walked across the plains to create a new home. In the process deepening and solidifying their own beliefs, laying the foundations and organization of which my family is benefiting.

PhotobucketAll the changes and uprooting and moving during my married life. Why? Because I know literally hundreds of people all over the country I call Friend. Thank you for being part of our lives.

May your life be filled with blessings and may you realize the story behind your blessings.

Erase Teacher-Funded Classrooms-contest closed

September 27, 2009

Did you know teachers spend an average of $1200 of their own money on classroom supplies each year?

NOTE: Contest Closed

When I was asked to get involved with Office Max’s campaign to end teacher-funded classrooms. I was all… HECK yeah! Call me a Max Mom, call me a pooped out tired grouchy mom, but PLEASE let me help out with this! My dad was a teacher… with 10 kids in my family! Believe me… I get what it means to help a teacher out. And now YOU can help simply by nominating your favorite teacher in the comments!

Teachers spend $4 billion annually! That’s why OfficeMax joined with Adopt-A-Classroom to create “A Day Made Better“—a national cause event founded to erase teacher-funded classrooms. This year, “A Day Made Better” will take place on October 6 where 1,000 teachers will be surprised in their classrooms each with $1,000 worth of essential supplies from OfficeMax. That’s more than one million dollars donated to help teachers! Principals at needy schools nominated the teachers for demonstrating dedication, innovation, and passion.

To pay-it-forward, OfficeMax and Mom It Forward have teamed up to create awareness about the issue of teacher-funded classrooms and to give you the opportunity to get involved and help a teacher in your community on behalf of the “A Day Made Better.” Here’s how…

Simply nominate a teacher of your choice to win this giveaway by following the entry requirements. Be sure to check out the prize and criteria!

goodncrazy blue dots

PRIZE
One exceptional teacher will receive a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR gift card to OfficeMax. This can go a long way when it comes to classroom supplies!

CRITERIA

This is a giveaway that is meant to be given away. What does that mean? You get to nominate a teacher by sharing why this person is exceptional and deserving of this giveaway. The best part, every story told helps raise awareness in an effort to erase teacher-funded classrooms. The winning teacher will be chosen based on the following criteria, so be sure to tell us why your teacher is most deserving:
  • Dedication: does everything in his/her power to deliver the best possible education for his/her students.
  • Innovation: thinks outside the box and engages his/her students through creative learning activities & programs.
  • Passion: expresses a genuine passion for education and shares this enthusiasm in the classroom.
  • Need: demonstrates a need for essential classroom supplies.

Thanks so much for helping pay-it-forward to teachers in your community! Please join us on Tuesday 29 from 9 to 11 pm ET for Girls Night Out (#gno) on Twitter if you’d like to meet the team behind the cause: @officemax, @adaymadebetter and @Adopt_Classroom. Hope to see you there!

I have been dying to write about the weirdness in this part of the country between the Ducks and the Beavers… even my KINDERGARTNER the other day asked me.. in ALL seriousness:

“Mom. Are we Ducks, or are we Beavers?”

This was in a voice akin to istherereallyaSantaClaus? Because apparently even 5yrolds are dividing up on one side of the crayon box and the other side of the paint easel according to whether they sleep in green or orange flannel PJs…!

When I replied to him.. um… “we’re UTES..” he was so very confused. I explained.. “as in UTAH..” He grinned ear to ear and sighed.. “Oh, we’re for Utah?” He was so relieved to have a team to root for. How funny is that!?

~~~~

Recently I had a big old hankerin’ for some sort of a chipotle flavored dip… the problem? How to make it? I ended up heading to a local restaurant to buy some way too fattening onion rings and their sauce.

Not anymore! Thanks to @BlogWellDone, I created my own better than the restaurant and SO much less fattening Awesome Chipotle GoodnCrazy Chip Dip!

Here’s how you can make it too!

Buy a can of chipotle peppers
(Who knew so easy to get?)

  • 1 Cup Low Fat Sour Cream
  • Blend up 3 peppers add to Sour Cream
  • Add 1-2 Tbls of the sauce the peppers came in
  • A few shakes of onion powder
  • A few shakes of garlic powder
  • A squeeze of Lime juice

—This was altogether WAY WAY too spicy for me… I ended up adding mild salsa to my portion of the dip… but WHO CARES! It was awesome!
We LOVED this with Tostitos Whole Grain Chips AND Veggies!
Now it’s your turn.

*What’s your most creative HEALTHY Game Day Snack?*
