What I Got: 2 Playskool Toys from Amazon under $8.99

My husband always complains that our littlest one gets shafted because he doesn’t NEED anything after having two older brothers . . . and because he has so much secondhand stuff I don’t hardly ever buy toys, seriously. But I found two good deals today and I bought both of them so hopefully that will help my husband feel better.

First, I got this great Playskool Poppin' Park Pound-N-Pop Carnival for just $8.99!

My son loves balls and loves to laugh, so I can’t imagine that this won’t be a huge hit with him. Now, my biggest debate is how long the balls will actually stay with this toy versus being carried to the bath, in his bed, snuck out to the car, buried in the backyard, well you get the idea. But for $8.99 I won’t be too upset when that does happen.

I kind of laughed when I first saw this advertised today. Both my husband and I wanted a “GloWorm” when we were little. Unfortunately, I don’t think either one of our families could afford such a frivolous expense at that point, so neither of us actually ever owned one.

But again, this baby of ours loves music and seems to have a wee bit of difficulty staying asleep or amused when in his bed and not asleep. So he will be the first in our family to actually have his own Playskool Lullaby Gloworm Boy and it was only $6.29.

This is definitely one of those gifts that you wonder who is actually going to enjoy it – the child or the parents.

Both items shipped FREE because my husband had Amazon Prime Shipping, but even if you didn’t you could get these two and add another $10 item and they would all ship FREE.

I paid for most of this purchase with Amazon gift cards earned through Swagbucks. You can begin earning Swagbucks yourself and it won’t be long before you’ll have enough to get an Amazon gift card for yourself.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
