Delicious Valentine’s Day Treats from Lindt

6036TG_HelloTin_LIPS_7.1oz

  Valentine's Day is not the same without mouth watering chocolates to enjoy. Honestly I rather have chocolates than flowers. :-) It's easy enough to stop by the local grocery or drug store and pick up a box of heart shaped chocolates.

Digital Video Monitors from Foscam (giveaway ends 2/9/15)

Old IBM computer

  Technology these days truly amazes me. Never a day goes by that I don't see or hear about a bit of technology that I am in total awe of.

I wish I had my first computer. I … [More...]

Personalize your “stuff” with Label Land (giveaway ends 2/1/15)

Labels

  As a mom I like to keep my home clean and organized. My teenagers don't necessarily feel the same way. I admit that my work desk is "organized chaos," bu the rest of my home tends to be tidy and organized. I like things to have their own place in our home. If I find something out of place it actually bothers me - A LOT. If I see a DVD in our … [More...]
