Question, question!!

Question...... can anyone help me figure out how to get the Blogger Boutique banner removed from around the beginning of my posts and title?? I downloaded it, but do not like where it located itself! I'm not super computer-savvy, and hubby's not sure where it might be located. Please help!

Coupons clipped yesterday! Contact me if you want some!

I spent the last 2 days going through months of coupons that I had missed going through. And as a result, I have quite a few coupons to giveaway, literally. Some have "no expiration" dates, others expire next week 7/31 and 8/1, and the rest have varied  expiration dates---sometime this year!
The first two people to e-mail me at barbs562 at gmail dot com will get the coupons via mail.

Winner of the Cheerios giveaway

Winner was chosen via the random number generator this morning, and #40, pixie13 was chosen. Pixie13, you have 48 hours in which to contact me, or another winner will be chosen.

"Cheerios Do What You Love" Giveaway!!! Ends 7/20!

Good morning! What do you love to do?? Doing crafts? Singing? Travel?  Going to WDW?  No matter what you love to do, you'll need a healthy heart to do it, and Cheerios can help! Cheerios cereal is made with 100% natural whole grain oats. It has 1 gram of sugar and no artificial colors. And it tastes great in milk without sugar on it! (My opinion!!!) My 11 year old son was excited to see the box of Cheerios when it arrived at my house. 

Cheerios is partnering with country music superstar Martina McBride and professional athlete Cal Ripken, Jr. for the "Do What You Love" Contest! McBride and Ripken will recognize two lucky people with prizes that will make their hearts race! For example, One music lover (and a guest) will tour the Country Music Hall of fame and Museum with McBride, hang out with her in her recording studio-The world famous Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN, and even get VIP tickets to one of her upcoming concerts.
Now, through July 23, 2010 (next Friday a week!), you can submit your 150-250 word original story and photo, showcasing what you love to do. For a chance to win the experience of a lifetime with McBride and Ripken, visit today.

What I happen to love to do is to go to WDW and spend time with my family and my friends! We walk around the 4 parks at WDW alot, and it's great exercise for us. I opted to use my $25 American Express Gift Card towards a WDW trip coming up soon.

Cheerios provided me with the product, the information, and prize packs through My BlogSpark.

The Cheerios "Do What You Love" gift pack includes one box of Cheerios and a $25 American Express Gift Card that you can use towards doing what you love!

just a quick one!

I know, I'm posting when I should be sleeping! I'm a night nurse (RN) , and I can never seem to get to bed on my work days till around 1 p.m.!! Between trying to make sure that DS11 does the chores that my husband wants him to do while DS is staying home this year from summer day camp, and getting laundry done & take care of the birds----my mornings are full!
We decided to save about $700 this summer and have son stay home from  summer day camp, since he was starting to show more responsibility. Last year, we couldn't have trusted him not to be by himself for more than an hour in the house alone. This year, he's staying home for at least 1 to 2 hours a morning by himself, especially the days when I work late and get home around 8:30 a.m.! He's been occupying himself by doing his karate routines, playing on the computer, watching tv, playing Wii, riding the stationary bike, jumping rope, and reading books.

This summer, he started reading the Hardy Boys series----we found out a couple of months ago that the RTN Channel (reruns!!!!) plays the old Hardy Boys/ Nancy Drew shows from the late 70's!!!!! Steven loves them!!!  I used to watch them when I was in high school, I had crushes on both Parker Stevenson and Shaun Cassidy!!!! Shaun was my favorite!!! Son actually looks forward to each Sunday night or Monday morning (depending on if we dvr it!!) to watching the show!!

Any thoughts to any other chapter books for an 11 year old boy to read???
