NEW Mid-Jordan TRAX Line! Safety Tips & GIVEAWAY! -CLOSED-


Did you see the article in the Salt Lake Tribune today on the NEW Mid-Jordan TRAX line?  They let us bloggers try it out.  It's really nice!  You can see my husband in the dark green shirt and my daughter holding her bag. :)  I was blocked :(  Anyway...

Just prior to opening on Wednesday, August 3, the public can ride the new Mid-Jordan and West Valley lines too. UTA is partnering with the Utah Food Bank to “let food be your fare” that day; those boarding at one of the new stations will be encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item.  Rides will begin at 9:00 a.m. and both lines will offer 15-minute service for the entire day in addition to other festivities at the stations.

The new TRAX line opens on August 7th.  Here are some safety rules for kids and parents to be aware of:

·Always expect a train is traveling down the track ·Be alert ·Watch for trains in both directions ·Cross the track on at designated crossings ·Never, never walk on the track ·Don’t play near the tracks ·Ob… When eCoupons don't work

So the other day I tried to use a coupon from com that I loaded onto my Smith's Rewards Card....and it DIDN'T come off!  So I sent a dispute email and they got back to me THAT day and credited my account.  They even added $.05 :):)  The next time I used my card it came off!  I couldn't be happier with their customer service!!

I say this because I used to not use eCoupons because I was afraid of that happening.  But as long as you are right, the situation gets fixed quick!  At least in my experience. :)  Hopefully you've had positive experiences as well.

If you need to dispute:

then select: Electronic Coupon Redemption
Choose subtopic: My electric coupons didn't redeem when I shopped
Then complete dispute form

GIVEAWAY: 8"x10" Easy Canvas Print! (US) -CLOSED-

If you have a picture that you would like to put on a canvas, Easy Canvas Prints really is an easy way to do it.  You first choose your size, upload your image, select the border, and then even add image & color effects if you want.

We went to San Diego a few months ago and went to the Salk Institute.   I decided to make this picture into my canvas.  It turned out perfect!!  We love it!
Can you see the hand glider in the distance?  You can on the canvas :)

For the life of me I could not take a picture of the canvas on my wall that did it justice.  It basically looks exactly like the picture above, just shinier :):)  And I chose a wrap around border, instead of the mirror image.

Finding the picture was the hardest part.  Once I was ready to upload it at Easy Canvas Prints it took me less than 5 minutes.  And I received it fast too!  I highly recommend Easy Canvas Prints for their great customer service and high quality.

Easy Canvas Prints is giving away an 8"x10"…

GIVEAWAY: My Blue Bumbershoot! Hands Free Stroller Umbrella! (US) -CLOSED-


This is a pretty cool idea!  Most strollers require you push them with two hands, so if it's raining.....hope you didn't do your hair. :)  With My Blue Bumbershoot you have an umbrella that easily clasps onto your stroller leaving your hands free to push and to point at wet I'm kidding.

I took my kids to swimming class today and it was raining off and on.  We were actually surprised class wasn't canceled.  Anyway we were able to walk there dry and happy because of the umbrella.  You can also control the tilt on it.  I could cover my daughter as well!

As always I was worried about attaching it to the stroller, so I was going to let my husband try it out first and then have him show me how.  But I couldn't wait so I did it myself and it couldn't have been easier. You just unscrew one end, attach to your stroller and then screw it back so that it's secure.  Seriously easy.  You can also watch a quick video on how to attach it.
