Giveaway: I Wanna’ Make A Splash!

It’s summertime in Texas, which means I’m one HOT mama (literally!) and I could use a great way to cool off … without breaking the bank. My fingers are crossed (oh, the toes, too) that I can snag the North Texas Kids Splashfest fun pack for the whole family.

This awesome giveaway includes four passes to Splashfest, a water-filled family expo at Hawaiian Falls in The Colony, and a rockin’ cabana! Best part(s), well in addition to the total greatness that is free stuff? Radio Disney, 20 family-friendly vendors and Sci-Tech Discovery Center (hello, poolside science for the kiddos? Sweet!) will all be there.Event Details:
North Texas Kids Splashfest
benefiting Sci-Tech Discovery Center?Hawaiian Falls in The Colony
Saturday, July 18
11 am-4 pm
discounted admission tickets available at

While I’d love to win the golden ticket, I’m a sucker for dishing details—especially when other mamas can benefit. So, here goes. If you, too, would like a chance to soak in the sun, fun and latest in parenting support courtesy of North Texas Kids magazine, simply copy this entry (including headline and the above link to the pub) and repost it on your own mama blog, then shoot the magazine an e-mail at HYPERLINK "" to let them know you’re participating (be sure to include a link to your post).

Next Thursday, a winner will be drawn from the “inbox” and notified via e-mail … it’s that easy!

Good luck ladies, may the “hottest” mama win. ;)

Things that make you go huh???

Somethings I have come across - Make me say HUH!?!?!

Originally funded by UNICEF and created for Third World aid efforts, a grapple is simply a genetic cross between a grape and an apple. The fruit keeps the size and shape of the apple, the texture of the grape, and the flavor of both while providing a potent, high-strength dose of vitamin C.

Do you want an tangerine? How about a Grapefruit? Cant decide? How about BOTH at the SAME TIME! Have a Tangelo!

How about a lemon mixed with a tomato? A lemato?

As great as many of these may be - I think I will pass on the genetic food :)

I just love this website it cracks me up - so I will from time to time post FAILS that I come across on their site - or on my own :)



Oh my - better be careful how you use those there a warning label on the box or something about sticking them on your head...No your REAL head not your other head..sickos! LOL


Well...this was on how ever I am a bit the sign itself a fail, or is the fail refering to this husband? I frankly find the billboard the funniest thing EVER! Except I would have totally used a picture of him and stuck it to the board. Oh well...I guess he has been CAUGHT!


I am not too sure what they were thinking on this one...I mean it is making me start to think I potty trained my son too early I mean he is 6 so should he still be in diapers?

Some Neat Websites I have Come Across

Here is a cool site for you to explore... basically anything you can think of is on here and it puts it in a funny yet true since...for example...lets say you are in the woods LOST, and you had no food...and you were starving yet there is plants all are not sure if it is safe to eat or not - well good thing you read Rules of Thumb because here is what it says:

TESTING FOR EDIBILITY If you are foraging for food but are not sure about the edibility of a plant, take a small amount in your mouth, chew it, and hold it there without swallowing for five minutes. If you feel no ill effects - such as stinging, burning or numbness - swallow, and then wait for eight hours. If by that time you have not experienced any cramps, pain, numbing, vomiting, or diarrhea, eat another handful of the plant and wait another eight hours. If there are still no problems, consider the plant safe to eat.


Here is a neat little website I happened upon...basically tells you how to clean things around the house and other places...also it has a submission - where you can submit your own and each new cleaning tip submited helps raise money for charity.

Check it out!
