Savings for a fun day at The Island in Pigeon Forge, TN #TheIslandPF

So, when we got discounted tickets for the 7D ride at The Island in Pigeon Forge, I had NO IDEA about the other rides that were just around the corner. It was our first time going there, but I just hadn’t researched it at all.  We didn’t have time to check out the rides, so we promised the kids we’d go back the next day when we had more time.  My son was especially interested in the ropes course!

God Loves Mommy and Daddy and Me #giveaway ends 7/20

Disclosure: I received these books from Tommy Mommy. Opinions shared are mine.

One of the deepest desires of my heart = my children will know God loves them with an unconditional, eternal kind of love.   It’s a lesson I’m still learning myself, and I long to help my children understand it.  Even from a young age, children test the boundaries of love.  Have you seen it?  Perhaps you’ve experienced that, or maybe you’ve been the one to toe the line.   [Read more…]

My All American football movie #MyAllAmerican

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Clarius Entertainment. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.

Fall is one of the best times of the year in East Tennessee. The trees change color around the end of October. The temperatures are just perfectly brisk — not usually cold enough to need a coat, but not hot enough to make you melt, either. Then there’s football. Whether you’re at a TN Vols game in the flood of orange, or cheering from the sidelines of a high school football field, most TN residents enjoy a football game at some point during the weekend. My All American is sure to be a hit with football fans everywhere; this feel-good movie has the makings of a classic. After all, it comes from the writers of Rudy and Hoosiers! My All American opens on November 13, 2015 and is rated PG.

Free Starbucks gift card for AT&T customers who check with Ting @tingftw

Disclosure: This is a Fashionista Event and a promotional item was provided to me. Hosts for this event are Still Blonde after all these Years and ModlyChic 

 @tingftw #savings #mobile #cellphone #ad Possible free $5 Starbucks gift card! Find out more at savingsinseconds.com

When pressed to pick two material objects you’d struggle through the day if you were without, many of you would likely name your cell phone and coffee. I’m among those who would be bleary-eyed without my daily dose of caffeine; I’d also struggle to remember my calendar if my cell phone didn’t keep track of it. If you’re a current AT&T customer, you’re in luck. Current AT&T customers can receive a $5 Starbucks card when they check to see if their device is compatible with Ting (October 20-22, 2015). Note that there’s a limit of one $5 Starbucks gift card per email address and per active AT&T device checked. After the promotion ends, readers will receive an email with a link to print off the gift card.

Good news even if you’re with another cell phone company!! Phones transferred from Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon may also be supported by Ting. The benefits of switching? Paying less for cell phone service! Cold hard cash is a decent consolation prize, don’t you think? [Read more…]

Davidson’s Safest Choice™ eggs make a great Halloween breakfast

Disclosure: I received product coupons to prepare this post. Opinions shared are mine.

Have a few goblins in your house who would like a spooky breakfast on Halloween morning?  Here’s an easy way to make breakfast fun with a gruesome theme!

Davidson's eggs make a great Halloween breakfast! #giveaway savingsinseconds.com

Our breakfast was truly enriched by Davidson’s Safest Choice eggs.  The kids had fun helping me crack the eggs, cook them, and of course — devour them!  For us, making breakfast on the weekends is usually a flurry of arms, extra hands, and little feet standing on their tiptoes to reach the counter.  My dog always knows when we’re making scrambled eggs, so she’s usually underfoot as well.  You can imagine how swirly my eyes get by the end of the meal!   It’s a wonderful time to spend together.  Unfortunately we got so busy with the breakfast that I completely forgot to take photos.  Have you ever pulled something like that?  So in my quest to make things right, I found these fun interactive meals on the Davidson’s site.  Use pizza dough or a piece of toast as a base, add some cheese and a little bit of pizza sauce. Top with a Davidson’s sunny side up egg. Inform your children that you’re serving Giant Eyes for breakfast.  You might even add some bloodshot drama to the egg with streaks of red.  How fun!   [Read more…]
