#LEGOLANDPlayPass Pay for a Day……..

Play for the rest of 2016!

My son was a Lego-holic as a kid, when he turned 18 I donated all of his old Legos to a local school for a Gate program but wish I had kept them.  My grandson is now Lego-holic.  For his first trip to Legoland he was so overwhelmed he didn’t know where to look next.  We spent a lot of time in the building room where he could talk with others just like him.  Getting him to leave was no small feat!

Dipping in to the New Year – Giveaway!

It’s a new year, so why not try new things? No!  Not the Polar Dip!  The Chuck E. Cheese’s brand new Pretzel Dippers with delicious cheesy dipping sauce, at Chuck E. Cheese’s restaurants nationwide.  The grand twins had their birthday dinner there on New Year’s Day and I have to say the food has improved greatly since my kids were little.

“Soft pretzels have been an American favorite for years, so we’re excited to bring our guests a dip-friendly, share-centric variety of this old standby,” said Chef Gregory Casale, senior director of culinary innovation for CEC Entertainment, Inc. “Our mom and kid-approved pretzel sticks are great for the whole family and a delicious treat to complement any of Chuck E. Cheese’s taste-test winning pizzas, salads or wraps.”

Pretzel Dippers will only be available until March 31, so don’t miss the chance to get your hands on these salty, cheesy treats before they’re gone.   If you miss them, I also highly recommend the cheesy bread.  Trust me on this one.


Oh yeah I mentioned a giveaway, silly me, I am getting forgetful in my old age (p.s. my birthday is February 8, if anyone would like to send me a Glen Ivy gift card!).  Here it is:

Juicy Drop and Dylan’s Candy Bar Partner to Celebrate New Juicy Drop Gummies – GIVEAWAY

Yes, this is a cut and paste of a press release, but I am at work and I am busy and I think this event would be fun for all of you (in Los Angeles) to take your kids to.

Bazooka Candy Brand’s Juicy Drop is taking over Dylan’s Candy Bar in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 21st to challenge candy lovers’ taste buds with a first taste of new Juicy Drop Gummies. Juicy Drop is hard-core candy dripping with attitude that puts you in control of the sour intensity so you can push your limits each and every time you dare to drop.   New Juicy Drop Gummies combine delicious soft gummies featuring a special “drop zone” with the signature Juicy Drop sour gel pen allowing fans to combine the two for an amazing taste experience.


Fans will have the chance to take a turn on the Juicy Drop Prize Wheel to win fun giveaways including T-shirts, temporary tattoos, stickers, candy, and more. One lucky attendee will win a basket filled with candy and other fun prizes from Bazooka Candy Brands.

WHERE:              Dylan’s Candy Bar, 6333 West Third Street, Los Angeles, CA 90036

The Juicy Drop brand has always been a leading force in category innovation as evident from their most recent launch, Juicy Drop Gummies.  Juicy Drop, the #2 selling non-chocolate candy front of store¹, features a unique two-in-one candy experience that enables consumers to control their flavor intensity.  First launched in 2003, Juicy Drop Pop quickly became a mainstay in the Bazooka Candy Brands portfolio.  Juicy Drop Taffy was added in 2012, bringing the innovative taste experience into the soft and chewy segment and is the one of the first taffy candy lines that lets kids customize the intensity of their chosen flavor.   Juicy Drop Taffy spearheaded the Juicy Drop’s brand’s growth which drive the Kids Non-Chocolate category across all channels by 64² percent in a two-year period.  The Juicy Drop brand is part of Bazooka Candy Brands popular confectionery portfolio that includes Ring Pop®, Push Pop®, Baby Bottle Pop®, and Bazooka® Bubble Gum.  For more information, visit www.candymania.com.

There is also a giveaway!  If you love candy leave a comment below with your favorite candy flavor and on March 17th I will randomly pick one winner to win several samples of the new Juicy Drop’s Gummies! (Don’t worry the prize is being provided by and sent out by the PR rep not me, so it should actually get mailed out in a timely manner)

Disney’s Fantasia for XBox Kinect – Giveaway


 The breakthrough musical motion video game inspired by Disney’s classic animated film “Fantasia,” is available worldwide for Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft and Kinect for Xbox 360.  None of which are systems I own (Wii for me!), so when Disney Interactive contacted me about trying out the game, I declined but offered to do a giveaway instead.  Which means, this is not a review, because I have never played, but is simply a way for you to be gifted a fabulous (I am assuming) game just before the holidays!

From the press release:

In “The Neighborhood,” players will work their way through a restrained 2D urban cityscape, using music and magic to unleash a vibrant and magical 3D environment by interacting with billboards, rooftops, trains and other surprises hidden within the city landscape.  Through this mind-bending experience, players will watch and listen as their movements create bold colors and whimsical music that make “The Neighborhood” a fantastical adventure.


Some of the tracks from a range of award-winning artists that will appear in-game include:

·         Depeche Mode – “Enjoy the Silence”

·         Drake – “Take Care” (ft. Rihanna)

·         Tchaikovsky – “The Nutcracker Medley”

·         Police – “Message in a Bottle”

·         MIA – “Galang”

·         The Who – “The Real Me”

 Additionally, players will be introduced to Yen Sid’s previous apprentice, Scout, via the game’s narrative, who will guide the player as they perform, transform and create music to restore order to the world.

Featuring over 30 tracks – including contemporary hits, classic rock, classical music, and more – “Disney Fantasia: Music Evolved” transports players to a breathtaking world where music and magic combine to transform extraordinary interactive landscapes in entirely new and creative ways.

Some tracks for the title include:

·         AVICII – “Levels”

·         David Bowie – “Ziggy Stardust”

·         Antonin Dvorak – “Symphony No. 9 from the New World”

·         Fun. – “Some Nights”

·         Peter Gabriel – “In Your Eyes”

·         Gorillaz – “Feel Good Inc.”

·         Cee Lo Green – “Forget You”

·         Elton John – “Rocket Man”

·         Kimbra – “Settle Down”

·         Lorde – “Royals”

·         Bruno Mars – “Locked Out of Heaven”

·         Nicki Minaj – “Super Bass”

·         Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik”

·         Modest Mussorgsky – “Night on Bald Mountain”

·         Queen – “Bohemian Rhapsody”

·         White Stripes – “Seven Nation Army”

·         Antonio Vivaldi – “The Four Seasons: Winter, 1st Movement”

Although I never played I did watch others playing the game at both D23 and E3.  I have been fascinated by this game since I first heard about it back ion 2012.  I wish it were available on the Wii (but really, who am I kidding, I haven’t played my Wii since I moved).

So here it is!  Your big chance!  Simply fill out the Rafflecopter below and I will ship this puppy off to the winner in time for Christmas!

Enter for a Chance to Win $10,000 in the NEW Nutrisystem Great Escape $40,000 Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Nutrisystem for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I’m fat.

That’s no secret.  I have never been ashamed of my body or my weight.  Most women lie about their age and their weight but for me they are just a fact, a part of life.  The other day I couldn’t remember my age, I wasn’t lying when I said I was 48, I was just wrong.  (I am 46 by the way)

I weigh 325 pounds.  Do I wish I were thinner? Sure.  Do I really like bacon and cheeseburgers and potato chips?  YES!

I don’t “diet” well.  I don’t think depriving yourself of something is healthy, in that once you reach your “goal weight” it is now ok to go back and eat whatever you deprived yourself of.  Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me.

But all of that is neither here nor there.  You are here because you want to enter the Nutrisystem Great Escape $40,000 Giveaway! and win $10,000 right?  ME TOO!

 photo GreatEscape_ContestLogo1_zpsbc88e7f0.jpg

To enter the Nutrisystem Giveaway simply share your best photo and weight loss story with them.  They will be choosing 4 Grand Prize Winners who will each receive $10,000!

I have never tried Nutrisystem so I personally can’t speak to their success.  But I do know it is a leading provider of structured home delivered weight loss meal plans.  They have been around for over 40 years and I am sure if you check out their website you will see countless testimonials from happy customers.

They have a Nutrisystem® Fast 5™ kit which is created to help you jump-start your weight loss by helping you drop five pounds your first week.  With Fast 5 you receive:

7extra days of specialty selected breakfasts, lunches and dinners

7 energi-ZING shakes designed to help curb cravings

Unique meal planner for maximum weight loss your first week

Fast 5 was designed to be a special introductory week to help maximize your weight loss results from the start.  Once you’ve completed your first week you’ll move on to the Nutrisystem® My Way® Program for the next 28 days.



There is a disclosure at the top of this post about it being sponsored and blah blah blah.  But in full and complete disclosure I should let you know that while I typed this I am at work and I ate a swerving of popcorn and two slices of pepperoni pizza.  Diet what?
