Electrolux, Ovaries and Lemonade.

***I write this post because mama loooves her Electrolux and wants one. Bad. I am not being compensated in any way.***

Maybe you read on my main blog that I just got a new house and requested that Electrolux appliances appear in the currently blank appliance spots in my new kitchen.

Electrolux Appliance Desire

I spend an unsavory amount of time in home stores opening and closing the doors of the Elextrolux fridge, THE LIGHTS COME ON GRADUALLY! Like every opening of the fridge is a CELEBRATION! The ovens have the most delicious sing song touch controls, HUNDREDS OF POSSIBILITIES. Dehydrate? Bread proof? Broil? IT. DOES. IT. ALL. Plus one model even has a little oven drawer at the bottom so you can simultaneously cook a pie and a turkey…my heart flutters at the thought.

When an email arrived about Electrolux’s Virtual Lemonade Stand Campaign benefiting the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund I naturally was all over it. The chance to win an Electrolux Stainless French Door Refrigerator with Perfect Temp Drawer and support Ovarian Cancer Research at the same time?

Kelly's Lemonade Stand

By opening up your own free virtual Lemonade Stand not only will Electrolux donate a dollar to OCRF, but friends and family will have the opportunity to buy virtual glasses of lemonade for as little as a dollar and all proceeds go to the OCRF and you’ll both be entered to win the fancy GLOWING LIGHTS french door fridge. (Here’s mine!)

You have until September 7th to enter!

(And Electrolux? You can still keep Kelly and I’ll just take the fridge. And maybe the lemonade.)

barefoot books, beyond moosh approved.

Do you have a Barefoot Book in your collection and you’re not quite sure where it came from but you wish you had more?

My mother in law gave my daugther Bear on a Bike over two years ago and while I knew the publisher was Barefoot Books I had never really seen (or looked) for more Barefoot Books. That is until I found out I have a friend who sells them!  She does it because she loves them. She and I had lunch and gushed over our mutual love of Barefoot’s dedication to the art of the children’s book.

the moosh’s and my current favorite? The Barefoot Book of Faeries. Not only does it have gorgeous illustrations, it includes an audio CD with all of the stories narrated (which in the car? LIFESAVER.)

We both want to share the glory of Barefoot Books with you, head on over to Kasey’s site, (YEP! We’re both named K/Casey!) peruse around and let us know what your favorite Barefoot Book is. Leave it in the comments (with a valid email address) and you’ll be entered to win a $20 credit to Kasey’s Barefoot Books site.

Twitter for an extra entry.

Entries closed at midnight EST Tuesday, June 16th.

(Disclaimer: I was not paid by Barefoot Books for this post. I love them for free.)

Celebrate Summer, Win an Ice Cream Social from Dreyer’s/Edy’s®

**This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Dreyer’s/Edy’s® Slow Churned Neighborhood Salute**

Three years ago I figured that living next to one other family with young children in my new situation (halfway across the country in order for my husband to attend law school.) should be considered a blessing. We found our apartment through a  recommendation from them and were completely unaware until we moved here that our entire complex of apartments is filled with young families in similar situations. Whether it be dental school, law school, medical school or any other graduate program we were able to relate to each other and help each other through tests, graduations and board exams.
