REVIEW & GIVEAWAY: Enter for A Chance to Win Cute Socks from The Woven Pear!


How fun are these socks?! My friends and I LOVE cute socks. So when The Woven Pear asked me to partner with them I gave them an enthusiastic YES! They have so many unique prints. The colors combos pop and the attention to detail is on point.


I love the attention to quality and detail. You can see the pear is woven on each sock. It is a nice little touch with the logo.

Plus, the socks feel great on. They are soft. Not too thin and not too thick.

The novelty sock trend is hot because we all love and/or identify with something- a hobby, an animal, a food,… coffee. 🙂


The Woven Pear has a sock for everyone!  I love llamas and coffee. So I chose llama socks and coffee socks for my review; however, I also love flamingos and fox and cats…The Woven Pear has flamingo socks, fox socks and cat socks…it was a hard, hard choice for me.

One thing that sets Woven Pear apart is they do not neglect the bottom of the sock. Each sock either features a cute saying relevant to the print or theme of the sock or a fun, colorful printed bottom.

I think The Woven Pear socks are a terrific gift idea.


Speaking of gifts.. if you have followed the blog for a while you know that I am a sucker for product packaging.

Check out how the socks arrived….


LOVE the box! I did check and if you order two (2) pairs, your socks will come in this cute little box too!

Giveaway: One Reader to WIN an Old El Paso Gift Pack (VIP Coupon, $10 Visa Gift Card & Chip Tray) #MyBlogSpark


Do you love Mexican Food? Do you like the option of a quick and easy meal? Then I have great news…Old El Paso now has a new line of Frozen Entrees for 2!


Choose from the delicious options: Shredded Beef Burritos, Chicken Burritos, Steak Quesadillas, Chicken Quesadillas, Shredded Beef Enchiladas, Chicken Enchiladas, Steak Fajitas, and Chicken Fajitas

I do my share of “homemade” cooking…because I prefer that route most of the time…BUT there are evenings I just need something easy and quick….especially on days when we have an after school activity.


The nice folks at General Mills  and MyBlogSpark provided me a coupon so that I could try one of the new Old El Paso Frozen Entrees for 2. It was a rare occasion, but I ended up at the grocery store with no kids and my husband. I let him pick and he chose the Steak Fajitas.

For the Fajitas, all you need to do is pick up some tortillas and anything else you like on your fajitas (like sour cream or guacamole) and you are good to go.

The Steak Fajitas were easy. All I had to do was throw the contents of the bag in a skillet and pop a lid on. Check and stir every couple minutes and in about 10-12 minutes it was done. My husband loved them.


I served with chips and salsa because MyBlogSpark sent me that awesome chip and dip tray. It was a quick and easy meal and out cost was way less than stopping for fast food.

If you would like to find out more about the Old El Paso line of products you can head over to their website  or like them on facebook:
