Melissa and Doug Playhouse

I. Want. This.
Now I know that C is too young to play with this, but she's so darn smart for her age that she just may shock us all. Either that or it just will be there waiting for her for when she IS old enough to play with it. Bottom line.
Melissa and Doug make awesome products for kids, especially when it comes to creative play. They have adorable puppets and great puzzles and an entire selection of fun, educational toys. You can enter for your chance to win, too here. But honestly, I hope I win. :-)

Kuki Kids

I am always looking for cute and comfy clothes that C can just wear around the house. So many people want to shower her with adorable outfits to wear out, but what about when she's at home. I'm not really one to dress her up if I know that we aren't going anywhere- what's the point in that? Kuki Kids has the cutest clothes that are perfect for lounging! My Organized Chaos is giving one lucky reader the opportunity to win a T-shirt and leggings set from Kuki Kids and I sure hope it's me! C would look SO, so cute in one of their outfits. Visit My Organized Chaos for your chance to enter. Giveaway ends 12/13!!

HP TouchSmart 600 Desktop PC

I'm not really sure how you can top this really. Jolly Mom is giving away an HP TouchSmart 600 Desktop PC. How awesome is that? I actually want this gift so that I can give it to my younger brother. He got kicked out of my Dad's house, is a computer major and has no computer- uhh HELLOOO?!?! So, if I won this wicked awesome HP, I'd give it to him. Head over to Jolly Mom to enter for yourself- competition is high. Giveaway ends 12/7!

Piggy Paint Giveaway

Now, I'm not one to lay around painting my nails. Not my hands and not my toes... though I do get my sometimes pedicures. But there's something about painting C's toenails that tickles my fancy. Even more so knowing that there's nail polish out there that's safe for me to use with her and doesn't smell horrible! I first heard of Piggy Paint through my friend Nancy. I am super anxious to try it out on C, though I don't know if she is really going to sit still long enough for Mommy to paint her toes. Minnesota Mama's Must Haves is giving one lucky reader a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to Piggy Paint and I hope it's me. Wanna enter? Go here for your chance!

New Balance Sneakers

Seriously, could this be ANY cuter? I want these so bad! C just started walking last month, so these have perfect timing. She's already got 1 pair of Puma "big girl walking shoes" that are to die for... but these? 1. I love blue. 2. Charlie Brown is as cute as a button. 3. And the snow? Ugh- these are a must have. I've never even seen these before, which makes them even more cute! How adorable would C be stepping out in these? They'd make a perfect 1st birthday gift!!! I hope I win. Fingers AND toes crossed. You want to enter too? Visit Piece of ME for your chance to enter!

Kidorable Umbrella Giveaway at Mommy Mandy

C is and always has been our little ladybug. Now, I know she's just barely one so can't really hold an umbrella yet, but does that mean that I can't stick this in her closet until it's time? Or use it when she's with me and just hold it for her? Uhh no. Mommy Mandy is giving away a kidorable umbrella to one lucky reader and if I win, I will most definitely pick the ladybug umbrella. Kidorable sells matching rain boots, coats- and SO much more. Head on over to their site and check out their product line.

$30 Walmart Gift Card

Don't even get me started on how much I love Walmart. I think you guys hear that enough on my main blog anyway. But Amanda over at Mommy Mandy has teamed up with my favorite store to give away a $30 Gift Card to 2 lucky winners. Oh I hope it's me. My BF got me a Walmart gift card for my birthday and it bought us 2 weeks of groceries. Now, $30 won't buy us 2 weeks of groceries, but it will definitely cut back on the grocery bill. So I hope I win. Giveaway actually ends tomorrow, so if you wanna win- enter here.

Nelliebugs Tutus

I'm ALL ABOUT putting C in tutus at this point. She's so cute, playing dress up is going to be fun! Heather from Mommy of 1 and counting is giving away a Nelliebugs Tutu to one lucky reader. I visited Nelliebug's site and I think I would choose the plain red, but there's also something about the Hot Pink Zebra that tickles my fancy also. Take a look:Well, I'm just tryna win it.

Speaking of Cloth Diapers...

There is a Kooshie Keister giveaway going on over at Newly Wed, Newly Bred!

I keep mentioning how much I want to cloth diaper C. This is why I keep entering cloth diaper giveaways with the hopes of winning one that I can try out. SoftBums has this super CUTE Later Gator cloth diaper. Now, we all know that I am a HUGE Florida Gator fan, so anything gator related is something that I would love to have for C. Look at how cute it is:
Who wouldn't want this diaper? So I am trying to win it and you can too! Visit I Love Cloth Diapers for more info.

Fresh Market Kitchen

Yes, I realize that my baby girl is only 10 months old and that she probably won't be able to fully appreciate this toy for a while. But I also realize that I am out of work and Hubby and I are trying to cut back on our spending as much as possible to save money. I will gladly set this kitchen up in C's play area and play with her in the kitchen. As she gets older, she'll appreciate it more. Why not? I really want this kitchen. Every little kid deserves a kitchen to foster their imagination! Jolly Mom is giving away a Step 2 Fresh Market kitchen and this girl hopes she wins it!!

Thirsties Diapers

It is no secret that I really want to cloth diaper C. What better way to get started in cloth diapering than to win one? The Graves Family is giving away a Thirsties diaper on their blog Monkey Tales. I really hope I get a chance to win. Thirsties makes different styles of cloth diapers, I think the all in one is more my style (and by my style I mean easy to use). Go check out Monkey Tales and Thirsties websites!

Kool Kid Legs

I never really thought that I would be the type to like leg warmers, but the more I see them the more I like them. Now, this does not mean that I advocate bringing back leg warmers for everyone. No, the 80's are long gone and I would appreciate it very much if grown-ups did not start wearing leg warmers again. I'm all set with that. Thinking of grown ups wearing leg warmers makes me think of grown-ups wearing the one-piece footsie pajamas- one word: inappropriate. But my darling C would look so cute in leg warmers of all kinds. I hope to get her a pair of Florida Gator and Nebraska Husker leg warmers so she can be a good football fan. Kool Kid Legs has some cute, cute, cuuuute leg warmers. So I'd love to win and be able to pick a pair from their awesome Etsy Shop. Wanna enter? Penny-Pinching Mama is giving them away- click here for info.

Fairy Gram

What's funny is, I contacted Fairy Gram to do a review of their product and I never heard back, now here I am trying to win one. Yup, they are THAT cute. C is a natural-born princess, she already thinks the world revolves around her and we are here to wait on her hand-and-foot... well, she's kinda right. It's only appropriate that she gets an oh-so-cute fairy gram to go along with her personality. The wings, the cute darn tutu and the wand- seriously? SERIOUSLY? This was made for my child. If I had any type of creative abilities whatsoever, I'd make her her own darn fairy gram. Alas, I don't. so I have to win one. I'd pick the lemon color. Yellow looks super cute on C. Really, any color looks cute on C, but I'd love to get her the lemon. She can play dress up here in the house. It's all about C, after all. I hope she wins. Err... I hope I win. You can enter to win too at the Penny-Pinching Mama. See here for more information.

Tassimo Suprema Brewing System

This is a machine after my own heart. Really. I LOVE coffee and caffeine, that's it. My problem is that I either make too much coffee or too little. I want this machine not only because I can make one cup at-a-time as needed, but because it makes tea, hot chocolate, espresso... it's magic! It's everything I ever wanted in my home! I promise to use it for good and not for evil. I really hope I win it. If you want a shot at winning it, visit My Organized Chaos here. Take a look at this beauty:

Select Comfort-Sleep Number p5 Bed

Do I really need to say why I NEED to win this thing? This is actually a gift to my husband and myself, not for our child or someone else. Hubby and I drool over Sleep Number Beds. Sometimes we go into the Sleep Number stores and check out if there's a sale going on and talk to the associates about pricing and financing options, only to leave empty handed. We have ordered the information DVD and gotten the $50 off coupon (as if $50 is going to do anyone any good)... yeah, we need this bed. I hurt my back cheerleading in college and Hubby hurt his back before we met, so getting a good night's rest is almost impossible. We spent a LOT of money on this "awesome" pillow top bed which is now falling apart. The pillow top is no more. It hasn't even been 3 years I don't think. Sigh... I hope the sleep number gods hear me on this one. What's that? You wanna win this too? No worries, I'm not a hater- go ahead, all of the best to you. Visit Lizzy Dear's blog here. You can have a second chance to win by entering at Our Ordinary Life here. Wanna check out all of Select Comfort's beds? See here. Good Luck!

Walkabye Terrani Stroller

It comes in all types of colors AND comes with a rain cover and diaper bag. HOLLA- who wouldn't want that? Visit walkabye's website to see all of their awesome products. If you'd like to enter this giveaway yourself, visit The Bragging Mommy here.
Both my older sister AND my older brother are expecting children. I don't really have any hand-me downs and not much money to buy them anything worth talking about. A stroller is something that every Mom needs and all the better if you can get it as a gift because they are not cheap.

The Bragging Mommy is giving away a Walkabye Terrani Stroller. It. Looks. Awesome. And so much more lightweight and easy to handle that my heavy travel system stroller, that's for sure.

Fisher Price Little Superstar

So Lizzy Dear is giving away this Fisher Price Little Superstar. I LOVE this toy and it's not even for grownups. I saw the commercial the other day and thought: "Yup, C needs this." She loves things that light up and make noise. She also loves to dance, so this is perfect for the rambunctious one. We'll just add it to her arsenal of toys in her toy corner. I really hope to win this one! To enter this giveaway for yourself or see what other cool things Lizzy is giving away, visit her site here.

Step 2 Lifestyle Kitchen,, Karie Herring

The Fish family from: The Five Fish blog is giving away an awesome Step 2 Lifestyle Kitchen.Um, I need this! My daughter is going to be one this coming January and since Momma can't find a job out here in Desert Town, winning a kitchen for her would be a dream! She is so inquisitive and just into everything, I think her imagination is going to be SO BIG. When she gets older, I'm sure she is going to play pretend chef and other awesome things with this kitchen. Momma can sit with her in her play area and make pretend food: we can bake and cook. Ohh it'll be so much fun. I love to cook in real life, too- so teaching C how to use her fake kitchen can prepare her for the real thing. Lastly, since we can't really afford one, winning one would be the best gift that I can give to my little girl- well, besides love, that is. Find out more and sign up for yourself for this giveaway here.

Acton Baby Carrier

I need this. C is just WAY too active for her own good. Now that she can walk, all she ever wants to do when we go out is get down and get out of her stroller. The wrap that I have no longer does the trick. I would love to be able to carry C on my back. Even around the house so that I can actually get something done in piece. I'm not sure how easy it would be to get her into this and then on my back- but practice makes perfect. Half of the time I just sit on the couch or spend most of my day chasing her around the house. And... I guess if not for me for my brother/sister who are both expecting children- this looks like it would be a great thing for them to have. You can visit Acton's website here or enter this giveaway yourself at Organic Girl here.
