#OldNavy and #Crowdtap Sample share: @OldNavy Shorts!!

Have I mentioned (10 or 20 thousand times) how much I LOVE Old Navy and Crowdtap?! And I especially love then together when Crowdtap lets me go try out a new Old Navy item! This time I got to go with a friend to pick out shorts, and I cannot wait to tell you about it! First off, check out this seasons selection of shorts here.

There are a lot of cute styles, but I have to admit, I was quite nervous that they would not have anything long enough for me. I have to have shorts that are knee length (or nearly knee length), and the options for that were few and far between. However, I was able to find a few options.

And I was happy to settle on this pair here:

The friend I took with me was my daughter. She has sprouted in size and now is only slightly smaller than I am (much skinnier, but only a but shorter-we can now share shoes). She can get away with shorter shorts, so we were able to try a lot more options for her:

The ones she settled on were these:

All in all we had a BLAST trying on shorts at Old Navy and getting a new pair each. My only complaint was that there was not a big enough selection of long shorts. (Maybe I should have gone shopping in Utah?!)

Please note by way of Disclosure that I was given a coupon for me to get a free pair of shorts and for my friend to also get a free pair of shorts. Thanks Old Navy and Crowdtap for providing that!!

EZStringer's ROCK: Review & GIveaway!!

I feel so very very badly about my lack of posts!! It has been very busy and crazy here. I will do a personal update very soon, but today I want to tell you a bit about an amazing product, the EZstringer! How often have you lost the drawstring to a sweatshirt and had to sit there for hours restringing it?! I can tell you, I have done that A LOT!!!! With 5 kids I feel like I spend a lot of time doing little tasks that take a long time. That is one of the real time drainers, so I was SOOOO excited to be asked to review this product!

What is it?

This is how they describe their product:
EZstringer is a cool new product that restrings any drawstring in a manner of seconds back into clothing. As seen on the Discovery channel's, Pitchmen Show, and in Real Simple magazine as the problem solver of the month!
I would describe it as a time saving, genius invention!

What did I think?

This is a time saving, ingenious product! Really! Oh and BTW, I LOVE that the letter I got with the review was signed from Valli Ross (helping Mom of the inventor daughter). So not only is this a fantastic product that really I think everyone should have on hand, it is a family company where mom is helping daughter with her great idea! Way to go Mom!!!

I really love this product a lot and I want to show you how quick and easy it is to use. I think you will love it as much as I do once you see this:

Did you notice how QUICK that was?! Amazing!

Update...more coming soon!

I just wanted to throw out a quick not to all my loyal fans to appologize for the lack of posts. As mentioned before, we are miving in less than 2 months across the country to Scottsdale, AZ. We are trying to sell our lovely home in Omaha is this tough selling market and it is much harder on me than I expected it to be. Thus the lack of posts. I am constantly worried about keeping the house perfect for showings and I am always improving things. It is really keeping me busy and stressed. I was just working on the Omaha grocery price matches for this week, and a videographer stopped by to video my house. It was unexpected and my house was not ready for the first time in 2 months as I have 2 sick kids today. So, it is being rescheduled and I need to make sure my house is ready for whenever they can come back (hopefully this afternoon or tomorrow-fingers crossed!!)

Anyway-my point is this, I will get the grocery deals up and I have a couple upcoming reviews and giveaways and will hopefully have the chance to search out some deals to share after I get the house perfect again! In the meantime, if you know anyone looking for a house to buy in Omaha, check ours out, and please feel free to share this with your friends and family: Our house listing.

Also, we are looking for a 4 bedroom house to rent in Scottsdale Arizona. If you know of any great houses in that area looking for great renters, let me know!! :) Thanks for you support and patience!
