  • Win Valentine’s Lindt Chocolate From CVS (5 Winners)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Tina, Veronica,Vickie, Michelle,  and Pam While I think of my local CVS as my in-between “grab what I need” store and consider them my one stop medication store, admittedly I never think of them as a Valentine’s store. Which is kind of silly because I do recall in between filling a prescription the decor reminding...

  • The New WebMD Baby App Launches! (Win an iPod Touch Valued at $200)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! I still remember being pregnant while I was an engineer and though there were few people I could share my excitement and fears with (engineering is just not rife with moms or even women for that matter) I delved into the online world.

  • Win $100 AmEx giftcard! (3 winners)!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kathryn, Mistysunrise and John! As being the final word of my Ragu Mom’s The Word on Dinner ambassadorship I thought it perfect to have my last party recipe to be one of my favorites.

  • Got Dry Skin? Neutrogena Giveaway!

  • The Radio City Rockettes! (Giveaway And Discount Code For Boston)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Sarah! I had always heard amazing things about The Rockettes.

    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations “It’s Not Like A Cat”! It has really taken me a while to appreciate small businesses.

  • The Muppets Movie: My Thoughts And A Giveaway for You!
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Kim Kelly and Sharon! Ok, going to fess up here: while I grew up with The Muppets in my backdrop I was never a huge fan.

  • Beethoven’s Christmas Adventure On DVD! (Giveaway)
    Tweet CONTEST CLOSED! Congratulations Janet! Dogs are a man’s best friend, or rather everyone’ best friend.
