Say no to #SOPA here’s how

Censoring ██████ █████. The ██████ ███████ internet ███ ████. █████ is like ████ ███ having ██████. ███ duct tape ███ over your mouth. #sopa




Say no to SOPA.  There are many articles online you can find about what SOPA is and how it will effect you.  Yes, you, even if you’re not a blogger, even if you don’t own a website.  It will effect everyone that uses big sites like Google, Facebook, Youtube and many many more.  Here is one article I found on Cnet.com:

http://news.cnet.com/8301-31921_3-57329001-281/how-sopa-would-affect-you-faq/

Write you’re congressman, sign a petition, whatever you like.  Spread the word.  Many sites went dark today in the protest of SOPA.  Wikipedia for example is one.  Also, you will get on Wikipedia but it will go dark with an explanation of SOPA and PIPA.  There is also a field to type in your zip code to find your representatives to contact.  If available they list their social media sites too so, please contact your local representative and tell them you oppose the SOPA and PIPA bill!

Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra and Purex Crystals: a great team

So you made your new year’s resolution this year.  Maybe you wanna get in shape, perhaps lose a few pounds, maybe add some new pieces of clothing to your workout gear.  I’ve got some products to tell you about that will help you out.

Jockey’s Tech Terry Performance Sports Bras are now available.

Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bras are moisture-wicking, in other words, they help keep you cool and dry.  The bra also offer a convenient key pocket for your jog around town.  There’s a reflective logo on the back  of the bra.  Breathable mesh panels placed around the bra. Also has a soft bottom band for comfort.

So what does this have to do with Purex Complete Crystals?  Well, did you know that you shouldn’t use a liquid fabric softener on your moisture wicking clothing?  That’s because liquid softeners contain softening oils which prevent moisture wicking fabrics from working right. Purex Complete Crystals don’t use oils so they can be used on all fabric types.

I decided to test it out with my new Jockey Tech Terry Performance Bra.  I already know that I love Purex Complete Crystals, but how would it work on the bra?  I threw the crystals in with the bra.  The Tropical Splash scent of the Purex Complete Crystals (in the yellow bottle) is so lovely.  The Jockey bra I received was black.  
You throw the crystals directly in the wash with your laundry.  Works the same for both top loading and front loading. 
The Crystals worked great on my bra and the rest of my clothes.  My clothes, including the bra, were left smelling great for several days after.  
Just a word about the bra though.  The band on the bottom is very comfortable once it’s on.  I had an issue getting it on though.  The band doesn’t seem to stretch very much.  Especially compared to other sports bras I’ve worn.  
Ok, with that being said, on with the giveaway.

Couponing: The Extreme Video Course Review Must for those who want to learn

Have you ever watched one of those couponing shows and thought, “Wow, I wish I could do that?”  I know I have.  Who wouldn’t want to get $300 worth of groceries and pay $10 at the check out or walk into Rite Aid and get $20 worth of stuff for free?

I was really confused.  I use coupons but I didn’t use them to their full potential.  My other concern was that if I did give it a go, I wanted to be able to do it right.  No coupon fraud for me thank you.  I knew a lot of ways I could get coupons.  I even made my own coupon binder prior to watching this series.  I was still frustrated though because I wasn’t saving the “Big” money.  Maybe $20-$30 a shopping trip which I was happy but I wanted to know “the secrets”.

When I had the opportunity to review Couponing: The Extreme Video Course I jumped on the chance.  I had heard about some couponer holding actual classes in different areas but none were near me.  This was a great way for me to learn and I was eager.

I had the opportunity to print out a workbook that I could use to highlight info I wanted along the way and go back to as a reference.  The videos are word for word what’s in the workbook but it was definitely less time consuming to listen to the videos and highlight as I went along.  
The first few videos were things I was already aware of but, would be great for someone who is completely new to the idea of “extreme” couponing.  She also has several lessons that are store specific like for Target and Rite aid for example.  
I got the most personal benefit out of the “7 Rules for couponing” , “Double Coupons”, and “Rite Aid couponing” lessons.  She also has a nice couponing ethics lesson.  
Rayven also has a more money saving tips on her main page Stay a Stay at Home Mom.  
You can like Rayven’s couponing course on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/couponingcourse
You can watch some of the samples of the couponing video course on Youtube
You can also follow Rayven on twitter: @RayvenMom

This course was really helpful.  For only $17 it’ll pay for itself in a week if you put the couponing skills to use.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Sesame Street Live was so cool and you can still see it in #Pittsburgh on Sunday

Sesame Street Live is in Pittsburgh at the CONSOL Energy Center this weekend.  It’s not too late.  There are still shows at 1 PM and 4:30 PM on Sunday January 15 available.  If you wanna go, save yourself some money and buy the tickets through Pittsburgh Kids Guide and save $3 when you purchase your tickets.

I was able to go to the show tonight (Saturday Jan. 14) for the 5:30 PM show.  We got there early, found parking right across the street and got our seats quickly.  The staff was very friendly and helpful.  I had 4 tickets. I took my toddler as well as my sister and her toddler.

“Elmo’s Super Heroes” is about Super Grover losing his “super”.  The fun live show sends a great message about eating right, proper hygiene, getting enough sleep,  and exercise.  Most of everyone’s favorite characters were involved: Elmo, Zoe, Cookie Monster, Big Bird, Abby Cadabby, and more.

We had good seats.  From the minute the show started until it ended the show engaged both my 2 1/2 year old son and my 2 1/2 year old niece.  It’s 90 minutes of singing, dancing, and fun but valuable lessons.  They encouraged audience participation many times throughout the show.  There is a 15 minute intermission at the half way point.  I really didn’t know how our toddlers would do with a 90 minute show in elbow to elbow seats but they were both so into it.  At intermission my son looked at me and said “Again, Again”. I told him we just needed to take a break and we’d be back.  Then after the show was over, he said the same thing.

Here’s a pic of how engaged our toddlers were.  They would hardly sit in their seats.  They were standing and watching, dancing, and jumping.  They really enjoyed themselves.

I think everyone else did too.

I would definitely see the show. It was such a fun experience.  The CONSOL Energy Center is a great venue.  I’ve seen several different events there since it opened.  It’s easy to find in Pittsburgh and lots of parking available.

Tickets prices are $14, $18, $24  then there’s $34 dollars for the Gold Circle and $80 for the Sunny Seats that include a VIP meet and greet with 2 characters before the show.  Again, if you wanna save yourself some money, buy your tickets through Pittsburgh Kids Guide and save $3.

***I was provided 4 free tickets from USFamilyGuide.com and PittsburghKidsGuide.com in order to complete a review and help spread the word about this great show.  I did not receive any monetary compensation.  Any opinions expressed are my own.***
