Boudreaux's Butt Paste

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Boudreaux's Butt Paste. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you ever tried Boudreaux's Butt Paste? I would love to know what you think about it. I remember when I was pregnant with my oldest kiddo, seeing the name while reading about all the baby products I might or might not need and just laughing and laughing. What a funny name! I still giggle every time I see it in the store (why, yes, I *am* a twelve year old boy). It is highly recommended (even by pediatricians!), I have been told on several occasions by parents I've spoken to how wonderfully it works, and I can speak from experience as well.  It goes on smoothly and wipes off easily, and that the scent is quite pleasant.  The tubes have flip top caps, which is awesome because I can lose anything, even in the minute it takes to change a diaper.  They offer a variety of convenient sizes as well (1oz to 4oz tubes, as well as a 16oz jar). 

Now this might be totally TMI, but my youngest has only recently potty trained, so I still remember all to well what used to be in her diapers.  OH. MY. GOODNESS. this little girl could stink up a diaper, and I swear this child has toxic poo sometimes, so I often needed to slather her with diaper cream/ointment, and of course, like any mom, I always want to use something that is going to soothe and protect her skin. Boudreaux's Butt Paste works wonderfully.  I was able to pick up a tube for free at Rite Aid with coupons/UP rewards late last year.  Did you know that you can get a free sample of Boudreaux’s Butt Paste? Yep! Just head on over here to find out how: http://www.blairex.com/BLButtPaste.php. While you're there, you can read about all the great benefits of this diaper cream. Did you know it was designed by a pharmacist and a pediatrician working together? I just read that, how neat! 

Boudreaux's Butt Paste has been featured on the Oprah Show, the Tonight Show, Today Show, While You Were Out, TLC, ESPN, and even People Magazine.

Tabasco Original Red Sauce

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TABASCO® Original Red. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love, love, LOVE for my food to have a little kick.  I put pepper on nearly everything and I love hot sauce.  When I used TABASCO® Original Red Sauce, I like to put a little in my macaroni and cheese, or in my scrambled eggs.  Even better if those scrambled eggs are going in to a breakfast burrito.  Scrambled eggs, rice, and some shredded cheddar cheese (or cheddar jack) with a little Tabasco Original Red all rolled up in a soft, warm, tortilla.  YUM!  Tabasco Original Red is not only about the heat, it's about the flavor and enhancing the food you add it to. 

I have never thought to put Tabasco Original Red on my pizza, but that is not a half bad idea, since I enjoy putting hot pepper flakes on my pizzas.  Maybe we will have to try that for SuperBowl Sunday this year, pizza with Tabasco Original Red.  It might even become a tradition!  :o)  Do you have any SuperBowl Sunday food traditions?  The food is where my heart lies that day because anyone who knows me knows, sports are NOT my thing.  I doubt I will pay any attention to the game at all, but I will be more than happy to spend part of my day in the kitchen cooking up a delicious spread for us to enjoy while it is on and my husband is watching. 

Tabasco has a great site here for your Game-Day Party Menu.  Check it out and get some great ideas for what to serve your family and/or guests for the big game.  They even have a page for your pizza too, check out Pizza Perfected, and let me know what you think!  :o) 

Did you know that Tabasco Original Red was the first sauce introduced by the McIlhenny family in 1868 and to this day it continues to be the most popular of all of the six different sauces that Tabasco manufactures?  Neat!

When CSN Stores contacted me and asked me to do a review of their stores I was thrilled!

They gave me a gift certificate and I was able to purchase anything I wanted.  Their selection is CRAZY.  You could literally spend hours browsing their entire site.

I finally decided on a shelf, and to eat up the extra on the gift card I got a box of Cascade.  I know, I'm so practical. ;o)

Shipping was very fast and the products I recieved are great.  I actually decided to use the shelf not for shoes as it was intented, but to get all of the wrapping paper, ribbons, and bows type clutter under control in my closet.  It works great!  It was very easy to put together too.  My *only* complaint was that I thought shipping was a little high, but I ordered before I noticed that they really do have a lot of items that have free shipping.  All in all I had a great shopping experience with CSN and I would order from them again.

and of course, a Diet Pepsi, $1.49
It's a ADDICTION, I tell you!! :P

And before anyone says anything about shelf clearing, I did NOT.  I went to four different Rite Aids and did four transactions.  So, there.  :P  And yes, that's a lot of ice cream and chips, but hubby will take chips to work to munch on and well, we LIKE ice cream!  And if I can get it free, I'm gonna, haha.  That's why I have a nice great big deep freezer in the garage, so I can stock up at rock bottom prices and we have it when we want it...which might be tonight, or two weeks from now, lol.  ;o) 

Now that my little rant is over, haha, my grand total spent after coupons and UP rewards was a whopping $2.20 out of my own pocket!!  And that's including tax!  For 49 items!!  That woud have cost me $112.27 without coupons and UP rewards. 

Since there was so many transactions I didn't bother breaking it down by reciept, I started the day off with $70 in UP rewards I ended my Rite Aid shopping spree with $81 in UP rewards (woot, $11 more than I started with!) and plus I will get a $7.99 rebate for purchasing the AMO Complete. 

How's THAT for getting paid to shop??  :o)  That's like $16.79 profit when you combine the $11 in UPs more than I started with and the $7.99 rebate, and subtract the measly $2.20 I spent!
