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!!

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!

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.

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.

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:

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Usually when I say "trying to" very quickly, it comes out as: tryna. And really, I am just tryna win something. My husband and I NEVER. WIN. ANYTHING. Yes, I have another blog, but really- do my readers want to hear about what I'm tryna win? Probably not. I already think I lost like 2 billion followers from tweeting too many contests. I don't want my blog readers to hate me too. So, now my faithful contest followers can come here and find out about contests that I am entering and tryna win. So, if other readers don't want to read it- they don't have to. So, there.
