Have You Heard of MommyParties?

What are MommyParties?

Mommy Parties are fun and exciting, product-sponsored, in-home gatherings of moms. Every Mommy Party has a Host Mom who is an influencer in her community. The Host Mom invites a minimum of 10 of her friends to enjoy a party themed around your brand of product. It’s a great way to generate buzz among moms with peer-to-peer sharing and sampling of your products.

How do you get started in hosting Mommy Parties?

To host MommyParties™, sign up at

It's so easy to sign up and if selected you get sent a Mommy Host Party Pack full of goodies from a company that has partnered up with MommyParties. I've hosted an Episencial MommyParty and got a TON of free products to share with my family and the other moms I know. It was awesome.

Recently, I was selected for the Nutella Mommy Party!  I should get my party pack in a couple of days!

You should go and sign up right now, it's so worth it!

Being a facebook fan really paid off!

Did you know that there are a lot of companies that reward their facebook fans?
I've seen contests, promos and fan only discounts offered on facebook.
One of the companies that I love is One Bath & Body.
They had a facebook fan only contest where all you had to do
to win a prize was guess the right number from 1 to 100!
And guess what?
I was one of the winners last week!

And, here is what I won:

So, it really does pay off being a facebook fan of your favorite companies!
Take a second and look on their contest and promo tabs
and you never know, you just might be a winner too!

Did you get your P&G Coupon Booklet worth over $110?

To my surprise, I got my P&G savings booklet in the mail last week!
It had over $110 in coupons to use.
All I did was purchase $50 in P&G products before coupons or discounts
and then sent in my receipts with the rebate form and that's it!

It's so worth taking the effort and using the rebates to your advantage.
Now, I have tons of coupons to use at the stores!

Are you a member of the P&G Everyday Solutions?
It's a great place to get free samples and coupons!

Recipe: Baked Sweet Potato Fries

Baked Sweet Potato Fries


Sweet Potato
Sea Salt
Fresh Ground Black Pepper
Seasoned Salt
2 Tbs. Canola Oil


Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Wash and scrub sweet potato(s). Dry with paper towel. Peel each sweet potato. I left some skin on for texture and flavor. Cut into 1 inch wedges. Put sweet potato wedges on foil-lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with sea salt, black pepper and seasoned salt. Drizzle sweet potato wedges with two tablespoons of canola oil. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown.


These things are addicting! I just loved them and since you can get sweet potatos for just pennies, next time stock up and make these for your family. They are fabulous!
