Build-A-Bear Workshop Review and Giveaway!


I am so very excited to share these super adorable stuffed animals from Build-A-Bear with all of you. Build-A-Bear has truly outdone themselves this Holiday season with all the festive new Limited Edition stuffed animals. I am such a big kid and have always loved Build-A-Bear. Before my daughter was born I went out and made 3 different bears for her, unfortunately she hasn't had the opportunity to experience Build-A-Bear for herself yet. I am still extremely excited to share these new editions to the Build-A-Bear family with her and I'm sure she'll adore them as will you!
The first one we'll talk about is the limited edition Merry Mint Pup which runs around $20. My favorite thing about the Merry Mint Pup is her ears. The insides of her ears are a soft red fabric with little peppermints and white polka dots. How cute is that?! (See picture below) Merry Mint Pup came dressed in a satin red and white ruffled dress covered in stripes and polka dots with matching red and white striped shoes, bows, and bloomers. She also came with a mint scented bone which actually smells pretty minty! Other options for the Merry Mint Pup include a stripes & dots leash and collar and a red and white puppy bed. 
The next bear we received from Build-A-Bear was the Limited Edition Christmas Cookie Bear ($20) that came with a vanilla scented sugar cookie. This adorable Christmas Cookie Bear is a sugar cookie color with red and green sprinkled all over her body. She came fully dressed in a candy cane tulle skirt outfit, a red and white striped bow, and red and white striped shoes. The candy cane tulle outfit has red and green sparkly stars all over the tulle part with a red satin hem. The shirt has the word "Sweet" written on it,candy canes in the shape of a heart, and little red and green heart shaped gems surrounding the candy canes.  
These stuffed animals from Build-A-Bear are a great addition to our family! Merry Mint Pup and Christmas Cookie Bear are both are extremely soft and cuddly with minty green eyes. I fell in love with both as soon as I opened the classic Build-A-Bear boxes and I know my daughter will as well. Build-A-Bear has many other festive animals this season and all can be purchased in stores or online. Clothing and accessories are purchased separately but make sure you sign up for their emails so you don't miss a coupon or deal.

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience.

But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …
