LEGO FRIENDS: Girlz 4 Life Blu-ray And Lego Set Giveaway

Warner Bros. Home Video provided me with some of the materials I used in this Blog Post/Giveaway. The opinions I share are my own.

Friends are very important. It is always wonderful when you can enjoy the things you love with others who feel the same way. Plus it is nice to have someone who has your back during the good times and bad.


The new movie, LEGO® FRIENDS: GIRLZ 4 LIFE, is all about friendship, trusting yourself and standing up for what’s right no matter what the cost. All set to an awesome rock soundtrack you’re going to love!

LEGO® FRIENDS: GIRLZ 4 LIFE brings to life (in animated form) the LEGO construction based toy LEGO® Friends. LEGO ® Friends invites girls into a universe, Heartlake city, and inspires them to use their imagination to build and role play their own stories with fun-loving relatable characters.

Join Olivia, Stephanie, Emma, Mia and Andrea, as they learn about friendship, fame and pop star fun in Heartlake City. The girls’ friendships are tested when mega pop star Livi comes to Heartlake City. When our friends’ hit song “Girlz” is stolen by Livi’s manager, it’s time for a cunning plan. As the girls try to tell Livi the truth about her latest hit single, they all learn that fame isn’t everything and sometimes friendship is the most precious thing in the world.

Church’s Chicken Meal Passes Giveaway

Chicken is one of my favorites things to eat. It is right up there with bacon and I love me some bacon. There are so many different ways to eat it I don’t think I will ever get tired of it. My husband does not share my love of chicken so he does not eat it as much as I do.

We do agree on one thing though when it comes to chicken, we like our skin crispy when it is fried! When we have takeout, his number one place to get chicken is Church’s. It is something about the spices that they use. He is a fan from way back in the day. He was pretty sad when the location that was less than 5 minutes away from our home closed. It was his go to place for lunch.


There is only one Church’s Chicken left in Milwaukee, luckily it only about 15 minutes away. I love the crispy chicken and those honey butter biscuits are delicious! The spicy chicken is what I usually get because there is just enough heat without loss of flavor. Another thing I like about Church’s Chicken is my food is always hot and fresh. There are times when demand is pretty high and the staff is constantly making fresh batches.

In addition to great tasting chicken and biscuits, Church’s also serves mouthwatering sides. There is coleslaw, fried okra, corn, mashed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, jalapeno cheese bombers and french fries. Even dessert is covered with apple pie and Red Velvet Oreo Bites!

Visit the Church’s Chicken website for information on a location near you and money saving coupons.

The Giveaway

One reader will four free meal passes for Church’s Chicken. There are two free 8 piece meal passes and two free 2 piece leg & thigh and biscuit passes.

Quaker Celebrates The 100th Anniversary of the Iconic Quaker Oats Canister + A Giveaway!

Quaker has been a staple in my home for as far back as I can remember. My grandmother used to love a good bowl of oatmeal in the morning. Now I make sure to always have Quaker Oats in our pantry because we like to eat it no matter what time of day it is. A warm bowl of oatmeal makes a great snack!

100 years ago, Quaker proved that it’s hip not to be square with the introduction of its now-familiar cylinder-shaped canister, which to this day continues to hold one of America’s most trusted and loved whole grains – Quaker oats!

 Quaker Replica Canister

While the packaging design has since been updated, the round canister can still be found on store shelves today, helping The Quaker Oats Company, a subsidiary of PepsiCo, Inc., deliver more than 350 million pounds of oatmeal and inspire countless cooking and baking oat-casions for consumers each year.

As a member of the Quaker Blogger Network, I was sent a Quaker® 100th Canister Anniversary Kit to help celebrate and for holiday baking inspiration.

The  vintage treat boxes are the perfect size for a oatmeal dessert bar or a few nice sized cookies. The cards provide recipes for Holiday Cookie Surprises, Holiday Granola, Oatmeal Gingerbread Cookies and Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. If you are gifting more than a cookie or two, the Quaker Oats canister is a great way to hold them.

The Giveaway

One reader will win a  Quaker® 100th Canister Anniversary Kit. It includes:

  • Heart-Shaped Measuring Spoons – to help add a little love to your holiday baking
  • Red Oven Mitt – always handy to have for baking!
