Doggie Doo Review & Giveaway!

doggie doo

CONTEST OVER! CONGRATS TO shirley pebbles #557!!   LOL. When I first saw the commercial on t.v. for Doggie Doo my kids literally went NUTS! I had to do a double take of the t.v. as I was sure I was not seeing or hearing this commercial correctly, was I?! Yep, I was! And my kids WANTED this doggie very badly after seeing that it goes poop! What is that obsession coming from? Certainly not from this mama! Non the less I was certainly a bit intrigued myself, with a bit of disgust mixed in ;) I was sent the Doggie Doo and of course had to rip right into this baby! It was ME who could not open the box fast enough. After all, a dog was in that box that will poop on command! Woot! Once the box was opened, out appeared Doggie Doo! He is a cute little canine and he is made of plastic. He is a bit flat, but hey, every dog is different, right? He is cute enough! And, his "poop" comes in a little plastic container. It makes tooting sounds when you push down on it, kind of … [Read more...]

Playing Bingo Brings Me Back To The Good Old Days!

bingo

Growing up, my whole family, around the holidays, would play board games galore! It was so much fun and something I do now with my children. We sit around that card table and play games. I make finger foods and we have spiced apple cider and we just go for it. One of the games that I LOVED growing up was the Bingo game. I was always in charge of rolling that ball and taking out the bingo game piece and saying out loud to everyone, what it was! Too much fun. It is funny though, now that everything is being played on the computer, I was excited to learn that you can play online Bingo!!!! Woot! No more having to cart around that big old bingo ball (though it is FUN!!!), you can just go online and play until your heart is content. And, if no one else in your home wants to play bingo with you, well then find others online who do! It is a win/win situation if you ask me ;) So, playing bingo has always been something I would play with my family while growing up, as well as … [Read more...]
