Mother’s Day – Kellogg’s Giveaway

3rd May 2011

Mother’s Day is this Sunday (friendly HUSBAND reminder), and I am of the opinion that we should preemptively spoil ourselves, just in case those who should  be spoiling us, fail miserably.

I may or may not be speaking from experience. (Need to go shopping asap)

So, how about a little something as a Mother’s Day giveaway (from Kellogg’s) that you can give to yourself (mostly because it won’t arrive until after Sunday – yes I’ve timed this perfectly).

What’s in the basket?

  • Trish Magwood’s newest cookbook “In My Mother’s Kitchen”
  • Baking Dish
  • Full size box of Rice Krispies
  • Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips
  • Marshmallows

The basket is valued at $100!


Mandatory Entry:

Leave me a comment below telling me, if money was no object, what your perfect Mother’s Day present would be.

Optional Additional Entry: (one time only)

Tweet the following & leave a comment below saying that you did: Win a $100 gift basket from Kellogg’s on @BOREDMommy ’s blog – http://bit.ly/jJwycY #Giveaway

Heart of Haiti – Celebrating Mother’s Day

29th April 2011

Mother’s Day is coming up next week, so it’s time to honour and celebrate all mothers, although personally, I think mothers should be honoured and celebrated every single day. There are many mothers in my life that are special to me, and one of those special people is my sweet friend, Lisa. I consider her one of my best friends, and I think she deserves a shout out. We are very much alike and yet completely different at the same time. She is annoyingly slim and fit and a total neat freak, and so am I  (on the inside, I swear). She laughs at my jokes, is a great listener, and even though she sucks at answering the phone, I still love her like a sister.

I was asked to write this post by the Clever Girls, on behalf of Heart of Haiti. I previously blogged about this fantastic organization here. Founded by Willa Shalit, Heart of Haiti works to promote and support artisans, and the people of Haiti, as they work to rebuild their communities following the devastating 2010 earthquake. This Mother’s Day, please consider gifting a lovely and unique item from the Heart of Haiti Collection. To see the entire Shop for a Better World/Heart Of Haiti collection (including newly added items for Spring), please visit the Macy’s shop here.

From May 3rd until May 8th, readers can use the special promo code CLEVERGIRLS to receive a 15% discount off Heart of Haiti and Rwanda Path to Peace products.

Please support this wonderful cause this Mother’s Day.

I was selected for this very special “CleverHaiti” opportunity by Clever Girls Collective, which endorses Blog With Integrity. All opinions are my own.

Dear Husband, Mother’s Day is coming. I’ve made it easy for you. You’re welcome. Love Me.

4th May 2010

Dear Husband, I know you try (and fail) in the gift department time and time again. But let me give you some advice, k? No gift cards – gift cards suck when they come from your husband. And no flowers, because they just go ahead and die, and PLEASE no chocolate, and we both know why on that one. Instead, try to think about the things I like – being married for almost 10 YEARS might help that along. Or if all else fails, which it usually does, just ask me, but you usually don’t, hence why you forced my hand, and now I have no choice but to make this list.  And because I’m so in love with you, I have now given you a list for not only Mother’s Day, but also my birthday, my nameday, our anniversary, the first day of summer and whenever you need to get out of the doghouse. You’re welcome.

1. JCREW Handbag – It’s been a while since you bought me anything from JCrew (actually it was YEARS ago) and this handbag called me and asked to come over.

2. Clarisonic Mia Skin Brush – My pores are sad and neglected and I’m just tired of the teenage acne that I’m now getting in my old age. This brush is supposedly a miracle worker, and I needs a miracle!

3. Coach Watch – What time is it again? I figure this one would also be a service to you because I would stop asking you the time every five minutes. Also, if ever caught in a MacGruber life and death situation, I’m going to need to know how much time I have left before that bomb detonates.

4. Canon DSLR – I’ve been asking my girlies on Twitter about this one, and I know you will be so happy that I’ve done the legwork for you. All you need to do is head over to Henry’s and pick it up. Oh, and don’t forget a 50mm lens while you’re at it. Again, you are so welcome.

5. MacBook – As my husband and Sugardaddy (yes, we can both laugh at the irony of that term on so many levels) you really need to hit the Apple store the next time you’re in the big city.  I know my happiness ultimately determines your happiness, no? I just want you to be happy, k, so remember, APPLE store a.s.a.p.

6. iPhone – I hate my BB. Now, please get me that iPhone 4G that is supposedly coming out in June – which is technically too late for Mother’s Day, but I’m sure there is something in June that this would be perfect for, like Flag Day?

Try to ignore the fact that all these items are pricey – because it’s the thought that counts, and I’m thinking that any of these would be super great to open on Sunday.

Happy Shopping, Husband.

Love, Me.
