Thomas & Friends Blue Mountain Mystery Review & Giveaway

My sons both adore Thomas the Train.  I recently had the chance to review the newest movie Thomas & Friends: Blue Mountain Mystery the Movieand I have to say this is probably my favorite Thomas movie ever.  The quality of the movie just seemed more modern and I really loved the music from this movie!  My boys were especially excited to meet some of Thomas’s new friends in the movie, especially “Luke”!  As always, this Thomas movie had important lessons to learn such as teamwork and being a true friend.  I definitely give this movie a Momondealz “thumbs up”!

Synopsis:
When trouble strikes at the Blue Mountain Quarry, Thomas is sent to help his Narrow Gauge engine friends.  He catches a glimpse of a small engine trying to hide, yet no one will provide any clues to the engine’s identity.  Thomas is determined to get to the bottom of the mystery but discovering the truth is harder than he imagined.

How would you like to win a copy of Thomas & Friends: Blue Mountain Mystery the Movie?  It’s easy!

1.  Follow Momondealz via Facebook.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.

2.  Follow Momondealz via Twitter.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.

You can complete one of all of the above entries, just be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST. Leaving one on Facebook will not enter you into the contest!

This giveaway will end October 10th at 11:59 pm and the winner will be emailed 10/11 and have 24 hours to respond to avoid another winner being selected.  Good Luck!

Halloween Express Costume Review + Your Chance To Win $75 AND Pick My Costume!

 

Wow!  Can you believe Halloween is only a month away?!  When I looked at the calendar and saw how soon it is, I was shocked-and immediately starting asking my 3 year old what he would like to be this year..and of course got a gazillion answers.  So I did what most modern parents do, I hit the internet.  After searching several websites, I found Halloween Express and fell in love!  They have a HUGE collection to choose from and their prices rock!  They even have a clearance section on the site which of course I had to check out!

After allowing my son to shop around a bit on the site, he chose Superman.  Our family usually dresses up all together so I started brainstorming with my husband on other superheros and decided that my husband would be Batman, I would be Batgirl or Super Woman, and my youngest son could be Robin (Daddy’s little sidekick). Since I am still undecided on which female I will be, we just purchased the products needed for all the “boys”.

I could not be more pleased with Halloween Express!  Not only were our costumes and accessories affordable, they shipped and arrived in record time (I’m talking like 3 days and I didn’t pay for express shipping)!  They look and fit great, but feel awesome too!  No scratchy, cheap costumes here!  My husband’s mask was even comfortable and super easy for him to breathe out of (this can definitely be a problem with some masks) and I loved that both boys’ belts were not connected to the outfit but came separate.  Since my oldest is so thin, connected belts don’t help us much but when I can tie it myself, it helps “tighten up” the entire costume!

How would you like to win $75 of your own to purchase some Halloween gear?  Well the great news is you can-and it’s SUPER Easy!  Here’s how:

1.  Visit Halloween Express and check out Super Woman and Bat Girl.  Leave a comment on this post with your vote on my costume-should I be Super Woman or Bat Girl?
2.  Follow Momondealz via Facebook.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
3.  Follow Momondealz via Twitter.  Leave a comment on this post telling me you have done this.
4.  Check out my “Kids Frugal Fun” series and let me know what craft is your favorite!

You can complete one of all of the above entries, just be sure to leave a comment on THIS POST. Leaving one on Facebook will not enter you into the contest!

Since Halloween is only a month away, this contest will only last until Saturday, October 6th at 11:59 pm. The winner will be emailed on Sunday and have 24 hours to respond before another winner is selected!  Good Luck!

Disclosure: I received a credit towards costumes and accessories in exchange for this review. All opinions and thoughts are 100% my own.

Wholly Guacamole Recipes & Giveaway!

I have to admit, Guacamole is not favorite condiment-however, my husband LOVES it.  He enjoys it as a dip for chips and crackers but when I was sent the above samples from Wholly, we decided to step it up a bit and try some new recipes!  By the way, I could drink salsa and be a happy camper so I was digging the samples we got of that as well!  Wholly’s salsa is delicious and the only store bought salsa that even comes close to being as good as our homemade salsa! 

Here are some of recipes we tried with the Wholly guacamole and salsa:

My husband really enjoyed this meal and it’s perfect for end of the season  cookouts!

This meal was FANTASTIC!  Everyone in the family loved it!  I simply took some chicken breast and Wholly Salsa and put them in the crockpot on low~6 hours later we had a DELICIOUS meal that can be eaten the way we served it on a bed of lettuce with a side of rice and dallop of guacaomole or you can use the mixture as taco stuffing or nacho toppers!
