Celebrate game day with Rubbermaid from Target!

With football season in full swing and the Superbowl right around the corner one of my favorite things comes to mind.


More so, finger food.

Wings..Dips..Brownies..Mini sandwiches, you know–the works. Besides of course being around family, and friends that’s probably my favorite thing about the Superbowl.. And the commercials. ;)

When I saw Target had online coupons for some Rubbermaid Take Alongs I was all over it. You can never have too many food storage containers, especially if you’re like me and end up always leaving them at the party. Whoops!


They have a ton of different sizes, from SUPER big, to nice and small.




I picked up the deep square ones and some of the medium rectangle containers. Perfect for the items I bring.


Chili dip and brownies.





My favorite thing about these Rubbermaid Take Along containers are how tight the lids snap. Even if you drop them, not that I have…ahem. The lids didn’t pop off at all. And, when you’re carrying chili dip– that’s a heaven sent. They’re also really affordable (under $5.00 for each set I got.. Plus the coupon!) so when you do accidentally leave them at the party, you’re not out a ton of money or a  sentimental storage dish that your grandmother passed down to you and really get mad at yourself. Not that I’ve uh, done that either.

So the snacks are made.. Just waiting on some football and friends!

Oh.. Pst! Want to know something else?!

Rubbermaid is hosting a Game Day Party Sweepstakes.  They are offering the chance to win an Easy Find Lids Party Pack, a 48Qt Cooler and $100 VISA gift card! To enter the sweepstakes check it out here:

Halloween Decorating {and a giveaway!}

Giveaway Now Closed!

It’s here it’s here!


I’m so excited! Halloween is my favorite holiday. Before it turned into “Let’s see how little I can wear and get away with it” if you know what I mean. :)

Hayrides..Cider..Spooky movies (13 days of Halloween on Disney? Yes puh-lease!) The cold in the air. Kids running around high on sugar. Oh yeah, I’m kind of like Claire from Modern Family. “Halloween is MY holiday!”

So you can imagine my sheer delight when I was contacted by a lovely lady from to see if I wanted a box o’ goodies to sprinkle around the house for some Halloween cheer.

Yes. Yes I would!

Let me tell you something, this wasn’t a teeny tiny box. This was a giant halloween threw up all over my house type of box.

I was sent the Gold Package, which included a ton of wooden signs to hang up. Some pumpkin lanterns which will soon be hanging on the ceiling for a little Halloween get-together we have planned for the kiddos. Spider webs with some pretty creepy looking 8 legged friends and the neatest silhouettes. Lily and I had some fun taking things out and trying it out. Once I grab the rest of the seasonal things from the basement I’m pretty sure it’ll be the next best thing to the haunted mansion. ;)

We used the spiders to make something extra fun, which I’ll share with you tomorrow..

But, until then.. as if hasn’t been awesome enough to send me some fun things to play with, they want to send you something too! Not just one of you.. TWENTY FIVE of you! That’s right!



The first 25 entries will receive a small decorating kit to get you started sprinkling the spookiness around your home.

Just fill out the form below.. Couldn’t be easier!

Also.. Don’t forget to check out Home Seasons on facebook.. They’ve got tons of goodies for all holidays. So make sure you like them so you can keep up to date on specials and deals! I’d love it if you could tell them I sent ya!
