I love blog giveaways.  I always put my name in the pot for giveaways or free samples.  I mean really, what do I have to lose?  I don’t have to pay for the entry.  I have gotten samples , coupons, and literature, all through the web sign up.  I have even won that book  I posted about previously.

This giveaway is for an adorable outfit…yes, the entire outfit.  I love the combination of goldenrod yellow with the navy and white stripes.  And that poppy skirt is to-die-for cute.

Along with entering this giveaway for free today,  I received a parents feeding guide through the mail via  It is packed with coupons and lots of good advice for starting a wee one on the road to solids.  The total coupon value is about $20…On baby food. That my mommy friends is good savings. It also comes with a feeding guide fridge magnet. Did I mention that it was FREE?

I highly recommend checking out your family’s favorite product brand’s website.  You can sign up at so many of them to receive coupons, and free samples or complete product surveys that will allow you the same benefits.  I signed up at Leap Frog, Gerber, Beechnut, Earth’s Best, Huggies, Pampers, Luvs, Fisher Price, Red Plum, and so many others.


I am not sure why I have not had the gumption to blog more since starting ProsperoHouse.  I get busy with this or that, kids, obligations.  I have been online.  I have found many new crafting and sewing blogs to read that give me ideas and eye candy.  I have Facebooked more than I would like to admit.  I even watch my movies online because we have a TV but we only use it for DVDs & PlayStation.

I can say that I have been busy.  Four children in one two bedroom house makes for lots of fun, laughs, tears and messes. We have seen Liam grow from a little grub to a scooting, yawping man-cub.  Sophia is increasingly girly in a way that her older sister never was;  hiding under the table with my purse, the cell phone, and a smile.

My oldest two children start back to school next Monday and I have tried to figure out where the summer has gone. Then I go to my husband’s flickr site and I am reminded that our summer has been full with Karate, sunny days, church, fellowship, and family.
