KSL Book Festival-Look at all the free stuff we got!!

I just wanted to give you all an update on the totally awesome KSL Book Festival.  It was so much fun, for the whole family, and we got so many free things.  We got to meet Brandon Mull, author of Fablehaven, he even signed my son's copy of Fablehaven and took a picture with him.  The kids got to make several crafts and got a ton of free books, stickers, coloring books, crayons, and bookmarks!  They met Curious George, Ronald McDonald, and several other literary characters.  They also each got a Cat in the Hat hat.  We got free ice cream, cheese and crackers, and drinks.  It was a lot of fun and definately a GREAT free family activity!!  Here's a couple pictures of SOME of the free stuff we got (yes, this is only a portion of what we got for FREE):

Here's a picture of the Brandon Mull's autograph in my son's Fablehaven book-cool:

My son's name is where that white square is. . . .

It was a great event and I'm so glad we were able to go. . . they were also having University of Utah's Fan Fest that day at the Stadium-we weren't able to make it to that, but all the teams from the U of U were their greeting fans and giving away prizes-it was also a FREE event!!

Upcoming review for CSN stores

I recently did a giveaway for CSN Stores and told you about the great things they have on their 200+ websites. There is something for everyone, from a coffee table to a new light fixture, from toys to cooking equipment. There is a lot of great stuff there and I recommend checking them out. I have bought a toaster oven and a little picnic table for my kids through their websites, and we really love them. For an upcoming review, CSN Stores are going to let me pick something to review, and I cannot wait to start looking around their websites and choosing what to review!

Be on the lookout for the upcoming review, and in the meantime, go check them out!!

WOW-I cannot believe it is only Thursday! As Andrea told you all, I am "Out of Office" if you will. What that really means is that my husband has his written boards coming up on September 10, and he took this whole week off to study. So, our only working computer is now being used pretty much all the time by him for his studying. You might say he is being a PC hog like the cat in the picture above!  :)

The only reason I am on now is because he went in to work this morning for a study session there! YES! I have a precious few moments to post before he returns home, and I am going to take advantage of that time to let you know about an upcoming review! Watch for another post coming in a couple minutes here about that, then know that I will be back and running as usual by next Monday! I am sorry for any inconvenience and hope you will not give up on me for this week!
