Shows I am Starting to Miss : When Summer seems to slow down

Are there any  tv shows that you get so involved with that when the season ends you find yourself missing that show?
 I have not experienced that kind of interest from any tv shows in YEARS until this past season.  I became addicted to Once Upon A Time , so I find myself visiting the Once Upon A Time Fan Page daily just to glimpse photo shoots of the season 2 filmings that are going on. I will re-watch the season in August before Season 2 Premiers.  My other favorite is Revenge, which will be premiering on Sundays at 9 PM on ABC , right after Once Upon A Time.YAY! My two favorite shows on the same night .
 My favorite new comedy that I can't wait for is New Girl.  Totally hilarious show, and I think every girl can relate to Zooey Deschanel  in this show. Starting  July 30th  you can Re-watch [or watch for the first time] ALL of first season of New Girl!  Down side : Season 2 doesn't air until Sept. 25th.  on FOX. Speaking of,

    US Weekly is giving away  A trip to the L.A. set of New Girl during the season 2 taping,
           As well as :

  •  A $500 shopping spree
  • A New Girl script signed by the cast
  • See the wardrobe room on the set!

Halloween- When's too soon to start planning?

How soon do you start thinking about Halloween?  It is a Holiday that gets a lot of mixed reviews. I know a lot of people don't celebrate it,and to be honest I didn't celebrate it throughout most of my childhood. Because of that, I have found myself , as an adult with children, always getting excited about  the day. Granted, even as a child I never dressed up as anything scary. Actually, the only year I even really remember dressing up I was Snow White. Even then I don't think we went door to door. Instead, my Mom dressed us up and our cousins and friends came over dressed up and we got some BIG bags of candy [much bigger than our kids today get trick-or treating, or going to the Mall].  Keep in mind this was the mid 80's when all the crazy stuff was going on at Halloween, like finding razors and crap in the candies.  It was sooo much fun, nonetheless.  However, some 20 years [give or take] later, I find myself  looking forward to this time of year. Not so that I can get all scary looking, or to get the kids looking like Devils. Instead, it's the one day you can be whoever you wanna be .  I never allow my children to dress up as anything evil. They have been pumpkins, Princesses, princes, Ninjas, and Transformers. I have been a farm  girl and a witch.   I have a chance to review a Halloween Costume from , which would result in a giveaway for $35 to their site. However, I need at least 100 followers on Twitter. I already meet the requirements for facebook. Twitter is  where I need your help. If you would like to have $35 towards a costume [which equals FREE, or really CHEAP] , please follow me on Twitter. It doesn't guarantee I will get the spot, but there's lot of other great promotions, including costumes that it would give me a GREAT chance to be able to review and give away for you all! That's why I'm here, to bring you all some AWESOME deals and FREEBIES, so please leave me a comment if you've helped me out by following me . Click follow me at top right on the blog, or click HERE . Once you have followed me, leave me a comment telling me you did so and your twitter name, and you will be entered to win a $5 Amazon Gift Card. Winner will be chosen  07/16 [tomorrow] by 8pm EST. for an extra entry, tell me which costume you would pick from  <-- click to see choices . As I said, it's not a guarantee I will get THIS promotion, but it will guarantee more GREAT ones soon to come!

What's A Freaky Pet?

 I am sure many of you have seen my posts about Freaky Pets Giveaways. Have you been wondering just what exactly IS a freaky pet?  I was too until I received mine in the mail this past Friday.  I must say, this pet is pretty darn FREAKY! His name is Dinork
 I know what you're thinking .. "It's not THAT freaky. " Just as I thought.   The pet felt pretty bulky , so I turned it around and saw that it had an opening in it's back ...
I became a little nervous about what I would find when I opened his back... So, I opened it very slowly and carefully .
[I think I had my 9 yr old step son a little freaked out as I was making such a big deal about it]
Here is what I found:
There's something in there!!!

                                                           ANOTHER Freaky pet!

Freaky Pet Good VS Evil 

This has to be one of the coolest.. and FREAKIEST plush toys I have ever seen. 
Logan says the "Evil" one looks Demonic .. I showed him his vivid red eyes in this picture and told him  the Freaky Pet must be wearing off on him lol.
 I am sure Freaky Pets come in many varieties , shapes, sizes and colors . If you haven't gotten on yet [and even if you have], they have daily giveaways on their page - with one coming up in about 5 minutes today . Head on over to the Freaky Pets page for your chance to win one today! You can also check out all the Freaky Pets HERE

July Holidays: How Many Will You Celebrate?

In case you missed my earlier post, or haven't seen any other people or pages talking about today's holiday , today is National I Forgot Day ! I am so glad there is a holiday especially for this , and I am using it to my full advantage . My 9 year old has begun to get aggravated with hearing me say "I Forgot!" today [insert evil grin]. Our latest celebratory convo:
  • Me: Oh! Logan .....I forgot!
  • HIM: "What?"
  • Me: "I forgot"
  • HIM: "Forgot what?"
  • ME: "I forgot  .. that's today's holiday"
  • HIM: "What is?"
  • ME:" I forgot"
  • HIM: "No, seriously"
  • ME:" I . FOR-GOT "
  • HIM [getting kinda testy] : Well maybe you need to see a DR because you have been forgetting ALL day!
  I am afraid that my antics with I Forgot Day today may lead to him taking full advantage of tomorrow's holiday which is Disobedience Day . I sure hope he doesn't decide to celebrate it or he will also be celebrating Stay out of the Sun Day. 
 Here is a list of all the holidays coming up this month. Let me know which one you are looking forward to most.
Individual Days:
Build A Scarecrow Day - first Sunday in month
Sidewalk Egg Frying Day- Hmmmm, I wonder why!?!
Work-a-holics Day - even though everyone is on holiday
15 National Ice Cream Day (third Sunday of the month)
15 Cow Appreciation Day- Go out and give a cow a hug
18 National Caviar Day- something's fishy here
22 Parent's Day  - fourth Sunday in July
27 Summer Olympics - every 4 years
