WAT-AHH Review and Giveaway~CLOSED~


WAT_AAH!_logo (2)

When it’s hot outside, I grab a bottle of cold water. Most of the time, the sit in the freezer since the bottom part of the fridge is too full. My family and I drink TONS of water. Every now and then we’ll grab some tea, but that’s rarely. Plus, there’s nothing like a bottle of cold water to lower your body temperature. I can go through about 5 bottles a day. It all depends on how thirsty I am.Plus, when you are doing errands, or your kids are outside playing, they need some water to stay hydrated (dehydration really stinks!). If you’re like me, you don’t really like the tap water, but if it’s the only thing to drink at the time, you don’t mind.

Wat-AhhSay “hello” (to my little friend), WAT-AHH! They are making drinking water healthier and much more fun. I was recently given the chance to review their water, and I am so thankful for that! When they arrived, they had been sitting in the sun for a bit, so of course, it was way too hot to drink at the moment. So into the freezer they went! I figured that they would get colder faster. Well, it’s true! It took no time for them to become tasty and drinkable. I’m pretty sure they were drinkable when I first opened the package, but hot water would have made me sick!

So, what exactly is WAT-AHH!? It’s water that isn’t boring! It does not contain any sugar or ingredients you have no idea how to say! They have 4 different “flavors.” They aren’t really flavors, but you’ll get the idea in a minute.

Drink WAT-AHH “flavors”
Brain- Purified water and kid-friendly electrolytes
Bones- Purified water and bone-bu
ilding magnesium
Body- Pure spring water (that’s it!)
Energy- Ultra purified water and energizing oxygen

They are absolutely delicious! After they had finally become unfrozen, I decided to try the “Bones” first. Well, I had gotten so used to my tap water that it tasted weird at first. Then, after the first few sips, I was beginning to fall in love! My sister claimed it had an aftertaste, but I didn’t taste one. Then, through-out the evening, my sister and I tried the others. They were just as good as the first one!

WAT-AHH! can replace that Gatorade! It’s much more healthy and doesn’t include any sugar! Hooray for water! Oh, I’m sorry. It should be “Hooray for WAT-AHH!” There, I feel much better.

Thanks to the people at WAT-AHH!, you now have the ability to win! I will be giving 1 winner (that’s right, one winner) WAT-AAH! Backpack filled w/ fun back-to-school goodies (pencils, erasers, stickers etc…) along with some WAT-AHH samples! You have the ability to taste it out for yourself!WAT-AAH!GIVEAWAY

Pillsbury Bake-Off Giveaway~CLOSED~


I love to cook, even if sometimes, it isn’t that well! I have been on the lookout for new recipes or a new way to try a specific food item. Sometimes you just need a little something different in your diet.

This year is the 44th Pillsbury Bake-Off Contest. Want to know the good thing about this year? You can even help with the judging!!! For the first time in the contest´s 60-year history, we can help (You Be The Judge!) determine 10 recipes among the final 100 that will compete for the $1 million grand prize! Now I wish I knew how to cook good enough!

So how does this judging thing work?

Judges will select 20 recipes to be placed online at http://www.bakeoff.com in pairs for a period of two weeks for each pair. Consumers can vote for their favorite recipe in each pair. The recipe from each pair that wins the most votes will earn a spot in the final competition, April 11-13, 2010, in Orlando, Florida.

Voting is limited to one vote per person per each pair of recipes. Voters must be registered members of www.pillsbury.com and 18 years of age or older as of May 1, 2009, to participate.

The first pair of recipes was posted on May 14, 2009 and a new pair of recipes will be posted every two weeks (namely, May 28, June 11, June 25, July 9, July 23, August 6, August 20, September 3 and September 17, 2009). The voting period for the tenth and final pair of recipes will close at 11:59AM CDT on October 1, 2009. Visit www.bakeoff.com for the official rules.

Thanks to MyBlogSpark, you have the opportunity to win your very own Pillsbury Bake-Off magazine filled with tons of great recipes and a pillsbury-smPillsbury Doughboy Giggle Boy. The giggle boy actually is adorable! The magazine, like I said, is filled with with tons of great past recipes. I will warn you, though- looking at the magazine will make you VERY hungry. There will be (2) winners- each will win a magazine and a giggle boy.

We Have Liftoff!

If you are going to buy an HP desktop computer soon, buy an extra power supply to go with it. They cost $50 and up at Best Buy. Now, why do I tell you this? It has been a week since I’ve had a computer on at home.  Today, my sister and I spent 3-4 hours putting in a new power supply. I believe my butt is officially numb. We bought the HP computer on February 5th. It stopped working on the 15th. True, we thought our old computer would work until we could get the new one fixed, but the video card went out on the 5 year old Gateway and our monitor wouldn’t work with it. Now, we knew we were screwed. So, the next day after buying a new monitor cable (to see if that was the problem), we bought the new power supply. Today, we had the chance to put it together. We only took one break during those few hours.

At the end, we closed the case and plugged it up. I was afraid of pressing the “On” button because I had no idea if we had hooked it up right. When I saw the blue light turn on, I let out a sigh of relief- and maybe a shrill of excitement. I think I scared my cat during that excitement. Oh well.

So, what is your surprise now that I have a working computer? I will be holding a giveaway in 2 days. It will be only for the US (sorry guys!), but it will be something that everyone is raving about.  Woohoo! Who’s excited about it? I am! It will be my first giveaway and I hope (and pray) that it will run smoothly. On Tuesday (I’m resting on Sunday and Monday), I will put the post up for you to begin. So, have fun!
