{July 26, 2009}   Want 50 bucks?

Okay, I don’t have 50 dollars to give you….BUT you can win that on my stepmom’s blog at Twincere Twinkles

She introduces herself much better than I can, because my main comment is she is a Registered Nurse and crazy busy.

You’ll also find a lot of other contests/giveaways linked to on her blog; but this is her first own giveaway.


{July 25, 2009}   Congrats to the WINNER!

The winner of the Andy Monsters t-shirt giveaway is:


{June 16, 2009}   Awesome T-shirt giveaway!

Recently I was contacted by Andy from Andy Monsters about two of his new shirts:


Awesome t-shirts, right?

Well, what makes these t-shirts right out amazing is that 100% of the proceeds go to charity! The Smile t-shirt’s proceeds go to Smile Train and the Wishing You Well t-shirt’s proceeds go to The Water Project

Smile Train performs surgeries for children born with cleft palates and The Water Project provides clean drinking water in 3rd world countries.

If you would like to buy one of Andy Monster’s rocking shirts, use the code “monsters” to get 15% off!

Also, since Andy has such a big generous heart, he has offered to let one reader of this blog win a t-shirt!

The giveaway ends at midnight on July 24th, my b-day. (so I want lots of entries as a b-day present! 😉 )

I wonder sometimes how my family would be different if I wasn’t Autistic. Would life be easier for them? Would my parents stress less? I think indeed life would be different, but not better. In my own wacky way I help sculpt my family into the people are, as they change me by who they are.

I have a lot of respect for families dealing with a special needs member. Especially parents! They want so badly to help their children, yet find them many times to be challenging and confusing. Well…

I have a surprise giveaway!

Carolyn’s Kitchenhas been kind enough to sponsor a giveaway of this apron:
sweetheat apron

Carolyn’s Kitchen has been featured in OK! and Paula Deen’s Holiday Baking issue of 2007 as well as with the Girls Next Door at Madame Chocolat Los Angeles. They are 40\’s vintage inspired and make anybody feel wonderful (and sexy!) to wear one! Put one on and tah-dah you are transformed!

To enter, you have three options (you can do all three, but leave each in a seperate comment!) :

1. Go to Carolyn’s Kitchen and tell me your favorite apron

2. Tell me a simple tip on how to relieve stress!

3. Give a fact about Autism

Please remember to leave your e-mail address like love[at] so I can e-mail you if you win!

This contest ends May 15th at noon!

{November 12, 2008}   Winner and a deeply felt sorry!

I did not expect to be away from the computer for so long! I will be working on answering the questions and YES THERE IS ANOTHER GIVEAWAY!!! The owner of was kind enough to provide some goodies. Keep an eye out this weekend for that giveaway! Also, the reason comments did not appear right away is there is a moderation set on.
