2017 Holiday Gift Guide

Announcing our 2017 Holiday Gift Guide!

If you are a company looking to promote for this holiday season I can help you in 3 different ways:

Sponsored Post: This will be a basic blog write up about your company and what we have to offer. There will be no follow links directing people to your site and social media.  Cost $30

Product Review: Send me a product you would like to feature and I will review it. The review will link back to your site and social (no follow links) and will have original photos of the product. The product sent must be an unused FULL SIZE product (no samples) to qualify for the review.

Product Review and Giveaway: Same as the product review (product for review must be sent to me). Except at the end of the post will be a giveaway form. Giveaway entries would include following you on social media, browsing your site, and sharing the post. You will be responsible for shipping the prize to the winner. I will not send the review product to the winner (who wants a used item as a prize anyway?), and I will not accept the second product to mail out. I will provide you with a winner name and mailing address only for the shipment of the prize to the winner.

Any post accepted to our gift guide will be promoted on social media during the Holiday Gift Guide period during the month of November. All Giveaways will end before December 1st so that winner can receive prize before Christmas. The post will also be linked to on our Holiday Gift Guide tab which stays up for the year.

If you would like to be considered for this promotional period please fill out the form below:

Getting Ready for the Holidays with @BestBuy #holidayprep

Where has time gone?!?!?! It seems like we just started school the other day! But the weather is changing and we are getting closer and closer to the Holiday season. For me that means a lot of cooking!

With being gluten free we do a ton of baking for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Having the proper appliances to hold up to our holiday cooking chaos is important. The sad part is. This year all of our appliances will turn 11 years old. I am just dreading the day that they die out on us. So I am starting to keep my eye open for what exactly I want. But I can’t decide! I know I want a double sided fridge. I am also in need of a dishwasher. My kids and I are having a hard time keeping up with all the cooking we do around here. But my biggest battles are the stoves! What do I want more? Gas? electric? Oh the choices.

I love shopping at HyVee. it is one of the few places around here where I can find a HUGE selection of my Gluten Free foods while saving money on them.

Now they have an even better deal with their Fuel Saver Card! This is a great weekend to do some great grocery shopping and earn rewards in more then one way!
