Scotties Care Package + Gift Card Winner!!!

I was sitting at my computer tonight doing a little #itsjustreach work and realized I never picked a winner from the giveaway. When I looked at the clock it was 11:17 pm, so I’ve decided to be super high-tech tonight and count down the list of comments to no. 17 for the lucky winner.

So, I’m pleased to announce one of my in-real-life friends is winning this giveaway! She’s a momma to three and the littlest is almost the same age as the girls. I know lots of tissues come in handy in her house just like in ours! So, Stacey, this one has your name all over it! I’ll be sending you an email so be sure to get back to me or I have to hand it off to someone else! Congrats!

My new normal.

content managingOn Monday I got my first glimpse of what my new normal would be. I was at school, inputting grades into the computer to get my report cards ready for printing when an email arrived in my inbox about an issue that needed to be taken care of for a blog promotion I was hosting. I tried fixing it there, being a teacher workday time was a little more flexible for me, but it was a no go. So, being close to lunch time, I hopped in the car and headed over to the local Starbucks to hook up to their free wifi and add a caffeine fix to my growing-busier-by-the-minute day.

While I was there I happened to read an email that pertained to my new gig. So I pressed a few buttons and was working on that little task, too. All while still trying to fix the blog problem I had gone there for in the first place.

& every day since has been a little of the same. Teaching by day & creating and managing content by night. Now I know how Clark Kent must feel. Oh, and all while being momma & wife, doing laundry, making dinner, brushing hair, cleaning messes. The list could go on & on. Don’t get me wrong, I’m loving it, but finding my groove has been a little bit of a challenge. If I could just figure out how to add a few more hours in my day, all would be good.

P.S. Head on over & enter my most recent giveaway. A Scotties Facial Tissue Care Package including a $25 Target gift card!

Scotties ‘Like No Other Mom’ contest, review, and giveaway.

Who doesn’t think their mom is “like no other mom”?! I know I certainly think mine is like no other and Scotties Facial Tissues does, too. This leading tissue manufacturer has created a Facebook contest so you can share why your mom is like no other mom and have a chance at winning $10,000!

The Contest

From Facebook, enter the contest at and tell Scotties what makes your mom special. You can submit your story (you only have to do this part one time) & a photo if you’d like and visit the the page each day for more chances to win the grand prize or instant-win prizes. The grand prize winner will be announced Sunday, May 11th. Mother’s Day, of course!

Palm Trees BoxThe Product

Scotties Facial Tissues come in a wide variety including my favorite, the 3-ply with aloe. When having to wipe one of the kid’s runny noses or dry their tears, knowing the tissue is as soft as possible is key. I love throwing a box in my car to have on hand for any need that arises…from those seasonal allergy issues I’m currently dealing with, a crazy from-out-of-no-where-sneeze, or simply wiping up a spilt juice box.

The Company

Buying a specific brand because of their quality product or competitive prices is great, but when you find out more behind the company behind the brand and realize what a great asset they are to our communities is even better. Scotties Facial Tissues is made in the USA by Irving Tissue, Inc., a family owned company committed to managing its operations in an environmentally sustainable and socially responsible manner. What this means is that Irving Tissue, Inc. is part of the Sustainable Forestry Initiative where their forests promote water quality, biodiversity, wildlife habitats, species at risk, and forests with exceptional conservation value. They also have a Tree Planting Promise to plant three trees for every one tree they use in producing Scotties products. By definition that has to be helping to keep this Earth green.

The OTHER Giveaway

Scotties Facial Tissues has so kindly offered one of my lucky readers a Care Package that includes and assortment of their facial tissues (including my favorite!) and a $25 Target Gift Card! Who doesn’t love free tissues & a chance to go shopping!?

Brazi Bites: a gluten free snack review.

The minute I popped one of these Brazi Bites into my mouth I was in heaven. If you have ever visited Texas De Brazil (or any Brazilian steakhouse I’m sure for that matter) you will instantly think of the little bread rolls they set out when you try these. & then as I read aboutContinue Reading

With it being back-to-school season for me, and even more busy than a normal school year because all three kiddos come to school with me now, I was pretty horrible about getting the word out about our last giveaway.
