Fun and FREE Friday!

IT’S FRIDAY!!!!

I know that like Waldo, some of you might be looking for me as well.  I can’t even begin to tell you how challenging these past two weeks have been for me.  It’s been shear madness and I am so sorry that this site has not be overly reliable (as far as consistent posts) lately.  I feel like I am DRAGGING MYSELF ACROSS THE FINISH LINE THIS FRIDAY.  :(

Thankfully for me, I am heading on vacation this coming week.  I NEED A BREAK before my head seriously explodes.  I have not even really had an opportunity to get excited or talk about vacation because I have been non-stop.  shew!  Hilton Head is calling my name, so if you are in the area, look for the Nickels-n-Dimes license plate on the front of our SUV and say HI!

While I have not got them scheduled just yet, I will have overview of stores posting periodically.  I will have guest posts from some awesome bloggers and I will try to get in some occasional finds.  Make sure to check out my Blogroll for a list of other great sites as well!

There are two awesome giveaways that I still have yet to post!  EY!  And, below you will find some winners that have not been posted due to the events of my life this past week / two weeks.  Please note that these prizes will be fulfilled once I return from vacation and you will be emailed once they are sent out. 

WHAT’S FUN THIS WEEKEND?

This weekend, you will find the Taste of Cincinnati!  I love this event, but because of our vacation (YAY!), we will not be attending.  Remember that AWESOME Bissell Pet Hair Remover Vac (you need to read this!) that I reviewed and L.O.V.E.D?  You know…the one that I will be giving away very soon (sorry for the delay)…..well, they are going to be there as well as a part of the Good Housekeeping Tour.  You won’t want to miss this or the Protect a Bed area.  While you are down there, check them out and let them know that you can’t wait to try and WIN their products from Nickels-n-Dimes! 

These other great bloggers are also hosting these giveaways …. check them out to win!

  1. MasonMETU – Bissell or Protect a Bed
  2. Mommy Confessions – Bissell or Protect a Bed
  3. Working Moms Against Guilt – Protect a Bed
  4. When I announce the giveaways here on NnD this weekend, please know that you get an extra entry if you go to the Taste if send me a picture (you with some kind of proof that you were there visiting the Good Housekeeping Tour!).
