National Pet Preparedness Month With Doggy Loot

Poochy Play Pals

Poochy Play Pals

June is National Pet Preparedness Month. It’s about keeping your pets prepared for a disaster, and having a plan in how to take care of them if something happens. You need to have a kit ready with all of the essentials they may need, as detailed at the link at the end of this post.

Also, in honor of the month of keeping pets prepared, I thought I’d once again share one of my favorite sites to use to keep my pooches prepared. I have continued to order since this was originally written, and have had the same positive experience each time with their products, pricing, and the speed in which they delivered my orders. You can get credit just for signing up, resulting in free or verrrrrry inexpensive products. Check it out!
Doggie Loot

What pets do you have? Our current roundup is one lazy dog, two spoiled cats, two broody chickens with no possibility of chickies and two (three any day now!!!) little monkeys (otherwise known as our children 😉 ).

For more info on preparing your pets for an emergency, scurry over to the link below:

National Flip Flop Day

National Flip Flop Day

National Flip Flop Day

If you’re like me- and most Southern gals- you live as much of your summers are possible in your trusty flip flops! Did you know that today is National Flip Flop Day? I didn’t before now, but I’m glad I found out! Not only do you have an excuse to wear those wonderful flapping shoes, but you can get free stuff! In celebration of celebrating the 9th Annual National Flip Flop Day in honor of the children’s charity Camp Sunshine, Tropical Smoothie Cafes are giving away a free 24 ounce Jetty Punch Smoothie to anyone coming by one of their cafes wearing flip flops between 2 & 7 pm today. Talk about a cool, sweet deal! I’m constantly consuming very cold things lately- like my ever-present huge cup of ice water, popsicles, slushies or even ice chips- to keep myself somewhat cool in this Southern summer heat with a watermelon sized baby bump, so I’d love to have one of these yummy smoothies right about now! 😉

The Bird & Elephant Shop Review

Moustache Camo Bib

Moustache Camo Bib

I was given a gift card to The Bird & Elephant Etsy store as a prize in an amazing contest I won awhile back. I was excited looking through the shop, because she has a wide assortment of gorgeous prints and reasonable prices for custom products. She makes a variety of adorable items, such as reversible custom bibs, wooden teething rings, soft blocks to play with, burp cloths and more!  I wound up using my gift card on a whole slew of bibs, since that’s something I actually need even for a third child. I also got a masculine- yet oh-so-cute– moustache camo bandana style bib for my toddler.Bouquet of Bibs

Not only are these reversible bibs adorable, available in multiple sizes & shapes, and come in a large selection of awesome custom prints and colors, but they are a great quality! Even my husband- who is not easily impressed- was surprised at how well made these bibs were. Our little guy loves his bandana bib, and looks pretty doggone handsome in it, too! I’m really looking forward to putting our newest addition in her bibs and seeing how adorable she’ll look while keeping clean!

Which pattern is your favorite? I think the butterflies and the moustache camo are my personal loves, but I have a hard time choosing. They’re just all so vibrant! 🙂

Great Gobs of Giveaways

Another winning Wednesday here, just sharing some of the awesome- but less widely publicized- giveaways I find on the wonderful worldwide web. I love entering contests, although until the past several weeks I have rarely won anything. By rarely, I mean practically never, ever, ever. Just since Christmas Eve, though, I’ve won several awesome giveaways!!! One was a $20 boutique gift card! Another was a giveaway for the After Saga I featured here recently! Another was Christmas Eve and a higher entry giveaway for a huge prize package for our baby valued at over $1,200!! Another is a precious children’s book I featured here previously! More recently, I won a $25 Publix gift card, a craft kit, and a gluten free snack box! I’m not sharing to brag, but it tells you that people really do win! I think this baby in my tummy is my lucky charm, y’all! 😉 The giveaways I share here are not giveaways with hundreds of thousands of entries, so you actually have a decent chance to win something. Who doesn’t want to win free stuff?
