BOGO Chicken Sandwiches at BK!! YUM...

Update...please note Megan's comment below that her bk told her there was a mail out coupon for this. As far as I understand it, this should be available without a coupon through March 5. BUT it does say on bk's fb page that it is at participating restaurants and since bks are franchised, I guess this offer could really differ from store to store. So, I recommend calling your local store to see if they are participating.
I saw a commercial last night that Burger King has BOGO (Buy One Get One Free) Chicken Sandwiches. So, I looked it up on their website, and it is true!! Check it out here.

Because I Tried it Birthday Chronicle Review

I am a sucker for sentimental/memory items. I love photo books, journals, baby books or really anything like that. Trouble is, I am not that great at keeping them. In fact I have had 5 children, and the I tried to remember to get a newspaper from the day each one was born, but guess what? I only have one from the first child. So, when I was asked to review a Birthday Chronicle from Because I Tried It, I was ecstatic.

Let me tell you a little about Because I Tried It.

First and foremost, they provide Personalized Gifts for Anyone, Anytime. I reviewed their Birthday Chronicle, but that is just one of many, MANY items they have available. Check out the extensive list of personalized products here. Oh and by the way-they will get your personalized gift to you via email within 48 hours. Yeah-it's that quick!

Let me tell you about my Birthday Chronicle!

I decided to use my birthday for this review (because I could not choose which kid to do). Check out the Chronicle:

I love that is includes things like who was President, Famous people that share my birthday, who won the Academy Awards that year, and What my Chinese New Year symbol is (Horse). It has a lot of interesting facts and is presented as a newspaper front page. Oh and did I mention I had it in my email the day after I sent the information out? It was SUPER FAST!

I really like my Birthday Chronicle and will probably order one for each of my children's birthday's as well. It is so perfect for a baby book!

Let me tell you where you can connect with Because I Tried It.

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

Naptime Nanny Review & #giveaway ends 2/29

Look at the little gems of awesomeness that arrived in my mailbox yesterday:

I cannot express how much I love discovering (and reviewing)great products! Especially when I get to do a giveaway along with them and share the awesome product with one of you. This particular product is one I had not heard of until I was asked to review it, and boy am I glad I was asked! What a fantastic product!

What is it?

Naptime Nanny products are CD's with over an hour of naptime quiet time stories. The first 2 volumes contain fairy tales and the third has Christmas stories. This is what Naptime Nanny says about their products:

Naptime Nanny strives to provide teachers and parents with quality tools for helping young children experience a quiet resting time through a medium that allows the child to assimilate important life skills without interfering with the resting process.

What did I think?

Let me first tell you all that my little Kindle Cat (my 3 year old) believes she is too old for naps. I disagree. However, I usually don't make her sleep, because instead of sleeping, she screams and keeps the baby awake during his nap and causes all kinds of grumpiness for the day (from both me and the baby). When my older kids are home, I send them to read quietly in the afternoon when the baby naps so I can get things done, and he can sleep. However, Miss Kindle cannot read and would much rather harass her baby brother.

This afternoon, as with most afternoons, the older 3 kids were at school, and Kindle , baby and I were home. I needed to get some painting done for the house, so I needed the kids to be "napping". Kindle was not going to go for that today, so I told her I had a really neat new CD for her to listen to quietly. We turned it on and for the next hour or so, she was completely enthralled. She listened quietly and loved the stories. She did not bother the sleeping baby at all!!!

She would like for me to tell you all that the CD's were "Great!" (She listened to the first 2 today already and we will whip out the Christmas one tomorrow-by her request).

I liked that the stories were told pretty traditionally, but with little modern updates. Like in Goldilocks, when she got lost, she had learned her address and phone number, and was just looking for a place to use a phone to call home (or to call 911 and get help from the police). It gives real life examples of what kids SHOULD do.

I also loved that parts of the story that kids may not know were explained. Like "Goldilocks" was called "goldilocks" because her hair was yellow like gold and locks is another word for hair. There are also moments where the storyteller on the CD says things like "Of Course, as I am sure you have figured out..." I love that it gives the kids credit for having likely figured out where the story was going in advance.

Where can you get these gems?

Check out all three great CD's on the Naptime Nanny website. (You can even hear a story sample here.)

What could you win?

One lucky Beckee's Deals reader will win one of the 3 Naptime Nanny CD's (of the winners choice). NICE!

Please use the Rafflecopter form below to enter to win!

    ***Remember that I generally just price match at Walmart as much as I can rather than go to all the stores separately! I LOVE being able to do that. You can also pricematch at Target, but I find it easier to pricematch at Walmart.

    • Texas Roadhouse: Mondays 4-10PM one kid eats free with purchase of each adult meal
    • ***NOTE-I hesitantly include this one because we have REPEATEDLY had TERRIBLE service at the Texas Roadhouse in West Omaha and we will NOT eat there again even with good food and Free kids night. However, a friend noted that her family enjoys the one in PAPILLION! So I include this deal with a warning about the West Omaha location (and FYI-when I wrote to them about the issues we have had over and over, they did not reply or care at all. That is why we don't eat there anymore!)***
    • Chick Fil A: Wednesday nights One free kids meal per adult combo meal (A friend told me that this is good in Utah locations on Wednesday. I do not know if our new Chick fil A in Omaha has a kids night or not).
    • HuHot: Night Varies by location Note that Kids 3 and under are FREE always, but in addition to that, MANY HuHot locations have a Kids night where kids under 11 eat free with adult meal purcahse. (Sadly Omaha doesn't anymore) Click on the restaurant name to see if your local HuHot has a kids night, and which night it is!

    Kids Eat free Thursday at A+ Buffet & Mongolian Grill

    Wow, lots of kids eat free deals I have seen this week! In my ads this week, it says A+ Buffet & Mongolian Grill has kids eat free on Thursday. Also, Monday is Military Day meaning military eats for only $5.99.
    A+ Buffet & Mongolian Grill is located in Harvey Oaks Plaza at 14426 W. Center Road.

    Kids Eat free Mondays at Buffalo Wings and Rings

    I saw yesterday a sign at Buffalo Wings and Rings on L Street that kids eat free on Mondays. I was able to verify that on their website, so  I guess that is one more place I can add to my kids eat free list.
