Houseparty.com is a great party hosting website. I found out about them a couple of months ago and have already hosted two parties.

If you go to http://www.houseparty.com/events you can sign up. Once you are signed up you can apply for any party that is open. Right now they have two Kraft parties(Red Bull Barbecue sauce and Oscar Meyers Hot dogs), Febreze, Bic and more. IF you are chosen for the party you applied for houseparty will send you a package that contains everything you need for a party. For a DIGIORNO one I did I got coupons for free pizza, pizza cutter, coupons for $4.00 off a pizza, a apron and many more items.

Right now I am a host for the Shrek/McDonald's party and the pics are just some of the items Houseparty.com sent me for the party. I had also got shrek watches, shrek happymeal toys, coupons for free snack size Mcflurrys, coupons for free apple juice, arch card to buy food for the party and more.
So if you haven't done so go on over to Houseparty.com and start applying for parties! You will not regret it.

Cookies for cancer

http://www.cookiesforkidscancer.org/ is helping to raise money and awareness for pediatric cancer. One way you can help out is to hold a bake sale. The site can give you recipes , ideas, location ideas and tools to help you along.

My idea for a good place to hold one is during a block garage sale or block party. You could also sell some water and/or lemonade also. One recipe I like is popcorn snack

3 quarts popped popcorn
4 cups Cheerios® cereal
4 cups Corn or Rice Chex® cereal
2 cups salted peanuts
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup corn syrup
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
In a large greased roasting pan, combine popcorn, cereal and peanuts. In a large saucepan, combine brown sugar, corn syrup and butter; bring to a rolling boil. Boil for 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat; quickly stir in vanilla and baking soda until mixture is light and foamy. Immediately pour over popcorn mixture; mix well. Bake, uncovered, at 250 degrees F for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Cool completely.

You can bag the mix into little bags, tie with a ribbon and card that thanks them for their support.

So do something good and positive and raise money for a great cause!

Clash of The Titans

Clash of the Titans is one of my favorite movies. I have watched it many times over the years and was excited that they were remaking it. So yesterday for mother's day my BF took me out to dinner and a movie....I decided we will go see Clash of the Titans. I wish we hadn't. I have been been so disappointed in a movie in my life. They completely changed around the storyline and left out major parts. I can understand changing some things around but this movie in no way comes close to the original. We should have went to see Iron Man 2 instead.

Britax Car seats

I have a Britax Decathlon and I love it! This car seat is very comfy, and has a 65 weight capacity. My son is getting ready to move up to a booster and we are planning on getting him the Britaz Frontier 85. This will allow us to harness him up to 85 pds. Brtiax makes other great car seats like the Advocate CS. They come in a variety of colors (the one picture is the Kathryn pattern) and patterns so finding one you like should be easy. If you want to know more about Britax Car seats visit their site at http://www.britaxusa.com/.
