Emergency Contest Winner Announcement!

Good morning all! Well, Kevin and the Cowboys lost...again. It is very VERY disappointing! At this point, I will be announcing the winner of the Emergency Contest but the Big Contest is put on hold indefinitely. I need to re-evaluate and go from there. Without the participation, all is for naught so will have to figure things out before I even attempt it.

I do appreciate you all and thank you very much for voting! Keep an eye out for future contests or an update on whether or not I choose to have "the big one".

So, now that that is covered, the winner of the Emergency Contest is Leslie! Please email me at and let me know your prize choice!

Congrats, Leslie and again, THANK YOU ALL!!

Till later, Live, Laugh(go watch the Cowboys videos), and LOVE!

The weasel abides. (don't ask lol)

Walmart Deal Alert!

While making my latest almost daily trip to Walmart today, hubby and I noticed that the Tostitos Restaurant Style Tortillas Chips(my faves for spinach artichoke dip) were on display in the aisle. Price $1.98 That in itself is a pretty darn good deal as the price on the bag said $3.99. These bags are also bonus bags with 20% more in them.

The kicker: Attached to all of them was $1.00 off 1 coupon making these bonus bags a whopping 98 cents each! I loaded up and am ready for a party. Now I just need to have a party. Oh, wait, I'm having a Kraft Tasting Party on May 15th(more on that later).

So, not sure if this is local or not, but it would be well worth keeping an eye out!

Happy Shopping!

Mosquito Magnet

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Mosquito Magnet. All opinions are 100% mine.

You've heard the saying "Everything is bigger in Texas", well this holds particularly true for the mosquito population. I just killed one a couple days ago that when flat is more than an inch in diameter. The thing was MASSIVE! I'm keeping it where it is in my office as a reminder to other mosquitoes that if they come in here, they WILL die!!

For those more public areas(say not in the back of one's house in a corner where no one else is allowed to go, i.e. my office), there is a contraption out there that will handle the mosquito problem for you. The Mosquito Magnet attracts the mosquitoes by releasing CO2 and an attractant to draw the mosquitoes to the trap where they are sucked into a net. They can't get out so the dry up and die. No squishing, squashing or flailing about wildly involved.

With the Mosquite Magnet, you get a safe way to get rid of the little buggers. Gone are the days of West Nile virus, big itchy lumps and the sores and possible staph infection created by scratching and scratching and scratching. Sure I've perfected my scratching technique(using 2 fingers and scratch at the outside edges of the bite and then rotate) but I will gladly forget all that if I never have to scratch another mosquito bite.

Also gone are the days where people think of you as the crazy person who likes to flail around and swat at things that no one can see unless they are upclose and personal. You know what I'm talking about: arms flying, legs kicking, all while spinning around and cursing the pests. Is there any wonder little children cross the street to walk passed your house?

I've read the mosquito magnet review and have to say I have been quite surprised. I'm rarely one to "just believe" so I did my research and based on what I have read and the videos I have watched, I will say I am inclined to give this a try. I'm tired of fighting for MY blood! They did not ask to share and I definitely didn't donate to them so it really needs to stop! They are ravenous little disease spreading vampires! Be sure you check out the placement guide on the website. I know just the place that this would kick some serious mosquito tushy(no stake through the heart needed)!

Save your summer, save your blood and save your life! Go check out the testimonials yourself and tell me what your thoughts are. Do you think it works? Have you tried it out? If so, what are your experiences? I would also love to hear your mosquito swatting stories! Did you create a new dance? Get it on video? Inquiring minds want to know!

Update and a New Contest

WOW! It's been a tough couple weeks here and now the baby is sick...AGAIN! The prizes for the last contest are going out today and tomorrow and I just signed on 4 new clients this week so am busy, busy, BUSY.

I did, however, want to hold another contest. I found a great website that has an ongoing competition in Dance Animation. The videos on the site are awesome and hilarious! I'm trying to help out a friend for the upcoming one tomorrow night. He needs people to register and then go back and vote tomorrow night! It's an extremely easy registration process(name, username, email address) and they don't spam so you don't have to worry about them filling up your inbox.

The prize for this contest will once again be a $25 Amazon gift card or a 1 year OLS membership. My 2 absolutely favorite websites!

To enter this contest, go to and register to support Kevin and the Cowboys! This is a MUST! Then feel free to browse around the site! The dance animations are amazing! And definitely check out the Cowboys Cockadoodledoo Chicken Ball video. My 4 year old is absolutely addicted to it!

Once that is done, come here and post a comment saying that you have registered. That is all there is to it.

Registering is the requirement for entering this contest. For a bonus entry, you can do one(or all) of the following:
1 - Come back after 11pm CST tonight and before 6:30 pm CST on Saturday and vote for the Cowboys video that will be put up on the site after tonight's Live Face Off.
2 - Fan the Cowboys on Facebook
3 - Follow this blog.
4 - Follow me on twitter
5 - Friend me on facebook

For each entry, please submit a separate post.

Quick note, I can see who registered on the site per the requirement for entry. Please keep that in mind if you say you registered.

This contest only goes through Saturday night at 6:30pm. It's a short contest so no long waiting to see if you won! On Sunday morning, I will post the winner right here and, hopefully, be able to say that Kevin and the Cowboys won 2 in a row(they won last night)!

Ok, off to work. I have a con call in an hour and need to make sure I've got all my ducks in a row for the new clients.

Thank you for reading, following, and entering!!

Remember, Live, Laugh, and Love!
