Frustrated

Okay guys. I am getting a little frustrated. I know most of you are probably giveaway addicts (like me!) and want to enter as many giveaways as possible. BUT I work really hard finding awesome giveaways for you guys, so please, at the very least, read my post, visit the sponsor (who are very gracious in providing products), and follow the giveaway rules! You MUST do the mandatory entry before any of the extras. If you don't do this, NONE of your entries will count. Most of you do follow the directions, but there are still many of you that are not. So cut it out!

Thanks!
XOXO

Monica Rich Kosann Jewelry Review + Giveaway


Monica Rich Kosann is a professional photographer, who has extended her passion for preserving memories from photographs to jewelry that she describes as "irreplaceable pieces that record personal stories and mark important milestones." The jewelry (she also has a gift collection including frames, photo cases and accessories) stemmed from her love of vintage period pieces, like old cigarette cases, lockets, and powder cases that she adapted to hold pictures.
I received this gorgeous Mini Love Fob Necklace in sterling silver for review. Besides my wedding set, I have never owned a piece of jewelry this expensive. The pendant, inspired by vintage pocket watch fobs, measure 1/2 inch and hangs on a 16 inch chain. The entire necklace is so delicate and just plain pretty. It's a "special occasion" jewelry for me, just because I am scared of breaking and/or losing it, especially with a (almost) one-year-old. Now, honestly, the entire Monica Rich Kosann jewelry line is way too expensive for my bank account. But the jewelry isn't about being affordable, it's about becoming family heirlooms for generations. It's definitely something that would be worth the investment, if you had the money, in my opinion.

One very lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways reader is going to win a Mini Love Fob Necklace as well! Aren't you excited?!

    My Embroidered Gifts Review + Giveaway


    We all know my obsession for all things personalized. Combine that with my love of Christmas, and I so EXCITED to tell you about this giveaway. This will be Max's second Christmas, and I still have yet to buy him a Christmas stocking. I have scoured countless websites but everything I found that I liked was way out of my price range.
    My Embroidered Gifts has solved my problem! They sent me this Personalized Cozy Knit Stocking for review, with Max's name on it. It's exactly what I was looking for! The quality of this stocking is amazing for the price- $15.95! It will last for many, many years, and that's one of my main stocking must-haves. I'm not the type to get a new stocking every year for my kids. I want their Christmas memories tied to this ONE stocking. The stocking measures over 21 inches tall, so it can hold LOTS of Christmas goodies. I am so excited to have the perfect stocking for Max.

    One LUCKY reader is going to win their very own Personalized Cozy Knit Stocking from My Embroidered Gifts!

    Soda Stream Review + Giveaway

    My husband is a soda (we call it pop) loving fool! I quit drinking it while I was pregnant with Max, and I don't drink it as often, but even I still enjoy a glass every now and then. The problem we seem to run into, is that we can't drink a whole bottle before it goes flat. And I always feel so guilty throwing out the rest. It is such a waste of money, that, frankly, we don't have.
    SodaStream sent me a Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker to review. I was so excited to try it out, but, honestly, I was a little scared of the CO2 Cartridge, so I had to wait until my hubs came home to try it out. I'm such a chicken! The Fountain Jet came with two Carbonating Bottles, and a ton of SodaMix Flavors! Soda Stream was so generous. My husband and I had a little SodaStream tasting party just to try all the flavors. The machine is so easy to use, and even I can make it!
    1. Fill the Carbonating Bottle to the line with cold water.
    2. Screw the bottle into the Fountain Jet
    3. Press the button with quick, firm pushes.
    4. After 3 beeps, unscrew bottle
    5. Pour 1 capfull of SodaMix flavor
    6. Shake gently and you are done!!

    It's that easy! And the thing I love is that The Carbonating Bottles hold 1 liter, so we don't waste as much. And each SodaMix flavor has enough to make 12 liters (that's 33 cans!) This is really a great way to save some money. I bet you are wondering how the soda tastes. It's actually really good! Of course, it doesn't taste just like the name brand sodas, but they taste like real pop. My favorite so far is the Orange Mango and Root Beer. Hubby's favorite is Orange. And I really like having the Fountain Mist (think Sprite) around for upset tummies. AND, if that wasn't enough, they have flavors for flavored sparkling water, which is great for me, since I don't drink all that much pop anymore. I will definitely recommend the SodaStream Fountain Jet as a FABULOUS holiday gift idea.

    One very lucky Mommy Loves Giveaways Reader will win a SodaStream Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker!

    You can buy the SodaStream Fountain Jet Home Soda Maker here!

    Mommy Monday- Thanksgiving

    Thanksgiving is only 3 days away. This is Max's First Thanksgiving, and the last of his "First Holidays." We are still a new family, so we are still working out what our family traditions are going to be. Before having children, we would alternate Holidays between my husband's family, and mine, because they live so far apart. Now, both families want to see Max at every holiday. Of course they are understanding, but it gets stressful trying to split the holiday time evenly between both sides. And we have to work around hubby's work schedule.

    This year I am so thankful for my family. I never knew love until I became a mother. It's just something you can hear about, but never truely feel until you experience it yourself. I am so thankful that my husband has a job, even though he has been searching, unsuccessfully, for a new, better paying job so we can move. I am thankful for the opportunities I have had with this blog and all of my followers.

    What are your thoughts? Traditions? What are you thankful for?

    Chocolate.com Review + Giveaway

    I am a HUGE chocolate fan. I cannot resist it. My last 2 months of pregnancy, I craved Starbucks Signature Hot Chocolate and Plain M&M's every single day. I don't know how I didn't gain 50 pounds (well, I do know, because I had morning sickness for the first 7 months, but that's another post.) When I found out that I would be able to review something from Chocolate.com, I was ecstatic. They have anything and everything you could possibly want in chocolate.

    I think the 12 Piece Christmas Collection is so sweet. I love the little holiday images. I almost wouldn't want to eat them. Almost. What a great addition this would make to the desert table at your holiday party.

    I LOVE hot chocolate on a cold day. So this Drinking Chocolate has been taunting me on the Chocolate.com website every time I go to the site. The mix comes with a cinnamon stick, and other ideas for spicing up the flavor. Yummm....

    And OhMyGoshYouGuys!!! How stinkin' adorable are these Bride and Groom Chocolate Covered Oreos?! These are super affordable, and I think they would make the cutest decoration for your wedding gift.

    I told Chocolate.com to surprise me with my review sample. They sent me a Mackinac Fudge Gourmet Sampler, with samples of Chocolate, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Peppermint White Chocolate. I have to say I was a little disappointed, because I really am not crazy about fudge. For being a chocoholic, I guess fudge is just too rich for me. But I got to thinking that maybe this was a good thing. At least I wouldn't eat 24 ounces of chocolate in one sitting!

    I tried each flavor, and, yes, it was rich, but I already knew that. That's a given with fudge, right? My favorite was the chocolate peanut butter. That is one combination of pure genius. The chocolate was a close second. This fudge is so creamy, it almost melts in your mouth. If you are a fudge lover, I can promise you that this will be fudge you will not forget.
    One lucky winner will receive a Mackinac Fudge Gourmet Sampler from Chocolate.com too!

    Buy It:
    You can buy all these scrumptions sweets and more from Chocolate.com!

    Win It:
