DE Reviews is having a giveaway for a wrap carrier. It's a Sleepy Wrap. I have never used a wrap before but am very interested in trying one out. These look great. Drea's review of the wraps mentions that you can use them with larger babies. This would be perfect. You have until Tuesday of next week to enter.

The news is out! We have lice. Feel free to run if you want. Don't look back. SAVE YOURSELVES!!
The good news is "it" seems to be a very light case and we have caught "it" at the very beginning stages. So hopefully we are rid of "it" very soon. I have been wondering when and if this would happen since the 3 year old started preschool. Not sure where she picked "it" up at but hopefully this is the one and only time she gets "it". I had "it" once when I was little and have stayed clear up until a few days ago. And when I heard the word, I cringed and shivered and wanted to tear my hair out. Then I calmed down and thought my head doesn't itch I'm fine ----was that an itch? No it can't be. But I combed through my hair just to be sure and yep sure enough. I have ---- (not gonna say it).
We then began the process of clean up and we haven't stopped yet. I don't know if our vacuum and washing machine can take it. We have been cleaning everyday. I think this is the most use our machines have had without a short break between them. Laundry has not stopped for 3 days now and we have filled the vacuum several times.
I did hear about a giveaway for a new Oreck XL Ultra vacuum cleaner at Crazy Hip Blog Mamas. I think now would be a wonderful time to win a new vacuum cleaner. I'm heading over right now to enter. The giveaway ends on Jan. 31.
By the way, does anyone know of any safe, natural products that work to rid or prevent lice? Better yet, does anyone have any they would like to give me to test and try out?
I would love to win this and give it to my father.
They are also giving away a pair of behind the head headphones with Bluetooth tech.

My favorite is the Jinx bag. Lots of room to tote around the things we carry with us everyday.

Do you belong to any birthday clubs? I have signed up for a few and today in my email I have received several coupons for free meals. You usually have to sign up at the site and provide your name and email, sometimes you have to supply your address as well. You also get put on their mailing lists so if you don't want their newsletters, sign up with a different account and just check that one near your birthday.
Here are a few and what I have received.
Cold Stone Creamery - A free ice cream creation
Bennigan's - A free entree' with the purchase of an entree'
McAlister's Deli - $5 of my meal
Red Robin - A free burger. They also give out sundaes if you let them sing to you
Beaner's (soon to be renamed Biggby) - A free grande drink
Finley's American Grill - If you go to Finley's on your birthday and show them your id you get your choice of a free entree' ( I actually haven't done this in a few years, so I'm not sure if they still do it or not. ) I also think they might be a Michigan only restaurant. I didn't see any other states listed on their website.
Baskin Robbins - One free scoop
Celebration Cinema - Free regular popcorn
Usually you have about a two week window to use the coupons. My birthday isn't until the 18th and most of the coupons expire around the 25th. That gives me plenty of time to use them.
