- Complete pair of Kids' designer eyeglasses for $29.99
- Offer includes any kids’ frame up to $120, FREE impact & scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses, FREE UV protection and FREE eyeglass protection plan for any school-aged child 16 & under.
I have to admit that I was hesitant about this deal. It seemed too good to be true. But I headed over to the nearest JCPenney (which for me is an hour drive away) with my oldest son to get him an extra pair of glasses. I already had a prescription (the eye exam is not included). I brought my mom and my XiaXia (Yiya-Grandma in Greek) with us.
As we walked in I saw this sign:
Then I knew it was for real. Ender and I talked to an employee that was there about the deal and asked her what we needed to do to pick the frames. She told us that any frame in the store (ANY) that is $120 or less is included in the $29.99 price. If we wanted to get a more expensive frame we would just pay the difference. So, as an example, if he chose a $140 frame then our final cost would be $49.99. Then she let me know that the lenses included impact scratch-resistant polycarbonate lenses, FREE UV protection and FREE eyeglass protection plan. (But she warned me that if my son's eyes were a higher prescription, there may be an additional charge depending on how high.)
Then she let us look around. We tried on a lot of glasses:
I told my guy he had to stick to the $120 or less frames, and given that budget, he picked the following pair:
Not the ones I would have chosen, but he loves them!
We even got my XiaXia to try on a pair. You can just call her the Retro XiaXia!
After we picked the glasses, we sat down with the lady in the optical department and she measured Ender's eyes:
Then we ordered the glasses and I paid. I used the $30 gift card I got from Mom Spark Media and ended up with a penny left on it!
We had a great experience and plan to return before the promotion ends on August 31 to get extra glasses for my other 2 children that need them, as well as for my 16 year old brother. What an awesome deal!!! Go find the nearest JCPenney Optical location to you here.
On top of this great deal for all of you to take advantage of, I also get to give away a $30 Gift Card to JCPenney!
Please use the giveaway tools form below to enter the giveaway (It will end on Friday August 15)
I received a JCPenney gift card for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

I think I had a small heart attack when I found out I was going to get to do a #DisneySide in home party celebration. I am such a huge Disney fan abs I love seeing people's cute Disney parties, so I was excited to say the least. (By the way, if you have not checked out the Disney side celebrations sure yet, do it here).
So, once I got my fabulous package, I started planning my party. Check out all the loot they sent:
Amazing right? Since I had a Mickey/Playhouse Disney theme, I thought I would use the stuff for an early party for my baby who is about to turn 3. We bought some fabulous food at Costco (how awesome are these Mickey chicken nuggets?)
Then we decorated and got stuff ready:
Here's the birthday boy ready to go:
One of the fun things we did during the party was to play a Disney Headband.
We had a blast showing our #DisneySide. How do you like to show your #DisneySide?
Disclosure: Mom Select sent me this fabulous #DisneySide party kit. Thanks so much to all the companies that sponsored the kits! Other than the free stuff for the party, no other compensation was given and as always, all opinions expressed are my own.

I am asking you, my amazing readers, to please show some support for this great game, and go pledge a little something to the Kickstarter campaign. Every dollar helps him get to his goal! I would really like to see this game get mass produced so you can all get your hands on it as well! You will love it!
Through our Kickstarter campaign, Lawn Battleship is battling for the funding it needs for mass production. To take Lawn Battleship to the next level, we need your support. Help us bring the outdoor-fun of lawn battleship to families everywhere: Pledge your support on Kickstarter.
What can I WIN if I donate?
Here's what I am going to do. I am going to run a little contest here. I will give a $20 Amazon.com gift code to one lucky donater (is that a word? I think I made it up...). If you donate anything to his Kickstarter campaign, you are eligible to enter. You can enter on the Giveaway Tools entry form below, but make sure you make a pledge before you enter. I will be checking the backers list to make sure people are really backing the campaign, and I will delete false entries (I so hate being "that" person, sorry--necessary evil). You can also enter by liking Lawn Battleship's Facebook page, so even if you cannot donate you can show a little support and still get an entry into this giveaway!
Here are easy step by step instructions to make sure you get all the entries in:
1. In the Giveaway Tools box below, enter your name and email address.
2. Once you have entered those, 2 different ways to enter the giveaway will appear in the box:
a. The first is to back the Kickstarter campaign, then come back to the giveaway tools box below and type in the name you used to back/donate to the Kickstarter (yes you have to put your name in again-or your spouse's name, or fake name you used to back the project...) That option is worth 3 entries in the giveaway.
b. The second options to enter is to like the Lawn Battleship Facebook page. That is an easy peasy entry worth 1 entry, all you have to do there is to click in the giveaway tools box where it says to like the page. The Giveaway Tools box will walk you through it!
3. You can do both entries if you want to, or just choose on or the other (of course if it were me, I would do both to get the max entries possible and up my chances to win!)
Disclosure: Please note, I was sent a prototype of the game for my family and I to test out. No other compensation was given for this review and as always, all opinions expressed are my own. Also, I need to officially disclose that the inventor is a relative. But keep in mind I don't say things I don't mean-not even for a relative! I really liked this game a lot and believe in it! So please, help back it! :) If you want to check out what other people have said about it, check out the testimonials video here. Also, Facebook
