I See Me Book Review and Personalized Children's Book Giveaway! (U.S.) 8/20 (Rafflecopter)

I See Me offers some beautifully made personalized books for children! Along with personalized board books, personalized coloring and activity books, personalized placemats, NEW personalized lunch boxes for boys and girls,  apps, t-shirts, gift sets, and more!

We reviewed the Personalized "My Royal Birthday Adventure" book for my daughter Chloe, for her 4th birthday! I patiently waited until the night before her birthday, and I read the book to her. She notices her name now and she can write her name too, as long as she has an example to follow. So as we are are looking at the book and I am reading it to her, she notices her name all through the book! She thought that was really cool! The book made her super happy and excited that the next day was her birthday day and birthday party! This personalized birthday book helped all of us to make her birthday day special for her from beginning to end.

Personalized books for children from I See Me are super special! When the books have a child's name inside of them, and the story is about them, it really helps to boost their self esteem, as well as making them feel super special because the story is about them and has their name on nearly every page!

Both my children would love an I See Me personalized lunch box! I would love to be able to write a special message to my children everyday without wasting paper or sticky notes!

Christmas is coming soon! I See Me has two different personalized Christmas books for children! Wouldn't your child or grandchild love to see one of these books from their Elf on the Shelf before Christmas, or from Santa!

Back to School with Wholly Guacamole Minis Review and Giveaway! (U.S.) Ends 8/18 (Rafflecopter)

My children and I LOVE Wholly Guacamole! My four year old daughter is always asking me to share my Wholly Guacamole dip with her, and I do, but she likes to double dip. I don't like to eat or share things too much when they are shared with someone else, even my own children. I especially don't like it when we are at a party or get together, and someone is double, triple, or quadruple dipping. I have a cousin on my mom's side of the family that does this!

Wholly Guacamole has come out with Wholly Guacamole 100 Calorie (per cup) Minis (in 4ct or 6ct. boxes) in Classic, Spicy, Avocado Ranch, and Chunky. The Wholly Guacamole Classic is spicy, just the way I like it! The Wholly Guacamole Chunky isn't spicy at all, as it's made of only 100% avocados! Which is awesome for my four year old daughter to eat with her chips! As she isn't fond of eating spicy foods yet. I am not too fond of the Avocado Ranch or Spicy versions, as the flavors are a little too strong tasting for my palate. But other people at my daughter's birthday party seemed to enjoy them!

These cute little Wholly Guacamole Minis are perfect for school lunches and for people who would like so pack a little special in their own lunch too! Children who love to dip their veggies and chips in guacamole can now dip them at school with Wholly Guacamole Minis! Not to mention, one of these minis, is the perfect portion to put on a piece of toast with butter! My favorite thing to do with avocados and guacamole!

I am also not a big salsa fan. But I tried the NEW Wholly Guacamole Roasted Tomato Salsa, and I finally found a Salsa that I like!!! The salsa has the sweet and smokey flavors of roasted tomatoes and it really tastes good too!

If you LOVE Wholly Guacamole products as much as I do, make sure to Print out a $1.00 off coupon to take with you on your next shopping trip! If you LIKE Wholly Guacamole on Facebook, you can also print out a $1.00 off coupon from their Facebook page!

Would you like to receive a cooler of the NEW Wholly Guacamole Minis, Wholly Guacamole Salsa, a Wholly Guacamole Bag Clip, and a Wholly Guacamole squeezable avocado to help you host your next party or get together, or for you and your family to keep and enjoy for yourselves? Of course You do! Enter below using the Rafflecopter form for a chance to win a Cooler full of Wholly Guacamole Goodies!

Blog Post Titles Are Important

I came across a blog this morning with a post title of "Crap I'm Loving." Really? Why would you use that as your blog post title? I don't know if this blogger follows me or not? But if there's another blog post title like that, I just might stop following her.

Blog post titles are important. We need to be careful what we say, and how we say it. We also want our blog titles to get the point across as to what our posts are about. But to say something like that, come on! Really???
