Holidays with Build-A-Bear: A Review and a Giveaway

I have worked with Build-A-Bear quite a few times in the past and they have yet to disappoint. We recently recieved a $25 gift card to spend as we choose and after much debate, we settled on Santa Bearemy. He is a perfect fit for our Advent tree and the girls love him!

We had such a hard time choosing...this year there are so many fun things! As always, there is the Roudolph Collection which is so cute! The girls are also loving the Frosty the Snowman, the Misfit Doll, and the Adorable Elf Brown Sugar Puppy.

I cannot tell you enough good things about Build-A-Bear and I love to support companies like them. They provide a great, family experience and allows you to make something together that will be kept for years to come.

The Goobyn: A Review and a Giveaway

It's an easy habit to get out of, but I am trying to pack the girls' lunch for school daily. I have seen several Bento box style lunch boxes and in fact, initially started with the Bento 2.0. We have had quite a few things for lunch, from leftovers to sandwiches and flower shaped bits of fruit and cheese.

A few months ago, I signed up for Gilt, an invitation only sight that offers merchandise for up to 70% off. I was so excited when I found they were offering Goodbyn
lunchboxes! I placed my order and received these today...The Plum and Green Goodbyns. I love that they are planet friendly, reducing the need for all the plastic baggies. Plus, they come with a water bottle! The girls love all the little compartments too, all of which are separated by the lid. And the handle makes it easy for little hands to carry.

We immediately started decorating them with the stickers they came with and I am loving that we have an extra Bento style lunchbox for those days the girls leave one box at school. Jeremy immediately said, "Great...another lunchbox." (Insert sarcasm)

Good news for you! I have a Plum colored Goodbyn to give away to you! Just leave me a comment here. For up to 5 additional entries, click here. This giveaway will end on December 27.

Good luck!
