Arbonne Giveaway!

I am excited about this giveaway!! What mom doesn’t love a free – high quality skin care product?!

Here is the giveaway. I am giving away a tube of FC5 Ultra-Hydrating Hand Creme. This cream works – obviously, with all the diaper changing I do, my hands are very dry. They crack and bleed regularly. Since I have been really happy with a number of other Arbonne products, I thought I would try the hand cream. I am glad I did – it works great!! I received a tube of the Ultra-Hydrating Hand Creme free right after I bought some myself. So, I decided to share the love.
I am going to give you a couple of options to enter this giveaway. Anyone can enter – even my friends and family. I will use random number generator to choose a winner. Please enter by Friday at noon. I will pick a winner on Friday evening.
1. Go to the Arbonne website. Come back here and leave me a comment telling me what product interests you the most.
2. Blog about this giveaway. Come back here and leave a comment with a link to your post.
(If you do both, make sure you leave 2 comments.)
As a bonus, my friend and Arbonne consultant, Katie, is generously offering you a great deal if you decide to place an Arbonne order. Email her at with your order and she will give you 35% off your order – but you have to order by Friday, April 9!! That is a great deal – you do not want to miss this!! Thanks, Katie!!!
One more thing – if you have been reading my blog recently, you have read about my passion for Reece’s Rainbow, an adoption ministry for children with special needs. If you donate to Reece’s Rainbow sometime between now and Friday, April 9th, your shipping on your Arbonne order will be free. Go to Reece’s Rainbow, click on “Waiting Children” and donate to a child who tugs at your heart! Then let Katie know when you email her with your order.


I feel like I have posted so much since Nov. 1 that I don’t have much to say today! Except that I have only had 4 people respond to my giveaway. I have to say that is a little depressing. Okay, so “depressing” may be a bit of an exaggeration, but I’m pretty sure more than 4 people read my blog – and most of them have children. I thought giving away a Christmas picture book would be fun, but clearly no one else thinks so. I certainly don’t mind picking out of 4 people – but seriously, 4 people?!

Any suggestions for getting more responses?
I’m not picking a winner until November 23 – so you still have time to enter!

Survey and Give-Away

As mentioned yesterday, I am working on our lesson plans for December. Last year we borrowed this idea and we wrapped up 25 Christmas books. The girls opened one every night and we read that book at bedtime. They LOVED it!!

We intend on doing that again, but as I have been looking through our Christmas books, I started wondering what other books are out there that I don’t know about. I know there are tons of Christmas picture books so I want to know what your favorites are!
Leave a comment and let me know what your favorite Christmas picture book is. I will give you until Monday, November 23rd to comment and then I will pick a winner and send that person a copy of my favorite Christmas picture book.
