GIVEAWAY: Families of the World DVD! -CLOSED-

Winner

I got to review two DVDs from the Families of the World series.  They are geared towards 5-11 year old kids, but my almost 4 year old sat mesmerized!  And I did too honestly.  We watched Families of Philippines and Families of Germany.  Both my daughter and I learned a lot!  She especially loved the girl in Manila because she got to see a roller coaster in a mall. :)  She's watched it twice today! lol  I love that she can see what's going on in the day to day lives of other kids miles away.
I was impressed with the chores they had!!


As seen on television - Families of the World series takes you on a fantastic journey to another country where you view the unique lives of two children and their families. Each video focuses on a different culture, their way of life, family attraction, communities, schools and homes of two families -- from breakfast to bedtime and all the fun-filled activities in between. 

Both DVDs show a kid in a rural and urban area from the point of view of the kid.
The Germany one was even done during Halloween so you can see how the different areas celebrate.  The Families of the World DVDs retail for $29.95 and they are approximately 30 minutes long.

One winner will get to choose one of the above DVDs!! (US only)

Freezer Homemade Fries & Sauce

I LOVE fries!  I would make them more but it seems like a hassle when I'm trying to get dinner ready, kids are screaming, and I'm trying to dodge cheerios on the floor.

Then along came freezer fries and my life is far richer (lol)....not the ones you buy at the store that kinda look potato-like, but the real things.  They are also MUCH cheaper.   So instead of letting your potatoes sit around, and hoping that you remember to use them, you can make fries....yum....

To see my post on what to do with a 10lb. bag of potatoes go to The Coupon Project.

First wash and scrub potatoes ( I don't peel because I think it's miserable work)
Cut into 1/2 inch fries
Toss with oil (I usually use Canola)
Add salt and a little sugar (makes them crispy)



Place them on a baking sheets and bake at 475 for 20 minutes (they will only be half cooked)
After baking, let them cool on paper or dish towels Put in freezer on sheet (I have a small freezer so I used pie tins) Let them freeze solid (ab…

Gardner Village Series: Country Furniture & Gifts

Gardner Village is a local treasure. If you've never found your way down there, October is the month to do it!  The shop owners love Halloween! The village becomes a witch village and many times, shop owners will even dress up.   On my most recent trip to Gardner Village, I stopped in at Country Furniture & Gifts which is a store very ready for Halloween.

The store is located in part of the old restored flour mill built in 1877 by Archibald Gardner in West Jordan, Utah.  The store is very family oriented and houses many built-to-last items such as dining room tables, sofas, beds and chairs.  They are also famous for their rug room where many of their rugs are still USA made. As they say, "A rug makes a huge impact for a minimum investment to any room."


The home accessories and giftware are amazing!  They have all sorts of decor for all sorts of personalities. Please be sure to pay them a visit.  It's worth it!
