Reviews and giveaways:
I don't know if I ever posted my review of The Hidden Life of Deer. I really enjoyed this book and can recommend it for nature lovers and hunters alike.
Lauren's read a neat book combining literature and mothering. Enter the giveaway of Mothering Heights through Tuesday.
Enter to win a copy of the book honoring veterans over at 5 Minutes for Mom. Dawn's review of America's White Table moved me -- perhaps because it makes me remember all the veterans in my own family, including my dad and three grandfathers.
It's true, Yo Gabba Gabba is sort of annoying, but Kyle likes it and I'm getting used to it. I just posted a Yo Gabba Gabba giveaway over at 5 Minutes for Giveaways.
Dawn's review of the new Klutz book Draw Star Wars posts tomorrow at 5 Minutes for Giveaways. I love Klutz books and it sounds like this one is no exception (the link will be live at midnight 11/13).
The Christmas Giveaway has gotten started at 5 Minutes for Mom, and it's going to be good! There are already several great prizes up for grabs. I've posted a review and giveaway of the Shred Sled, which Amanda and I have been trying to master.
A new product I've tried:
We are fan of cranberry juice drinks. They were recently on sale at the grocery store, so I tried a new one: Ocean Spray Cran -Tangerine. The kids and I both really like it.
In the interest of full FTC disclosure -- Ocean Spray did not contact me and ask me to try this, and I paid for it with my own money. It's a product that easily could have gone either way -- delicious or a big flop, so I thought I'd share my unbiased and unsolicited opinion in case anyone else is wondering.
