Lily On The Fly

Family needs something new to try? Then check out Lily On The Fly. Use Lily's meal cards and Plan On the Fly.
Keep your Lily Meal Planning deck in your purse or glove compartment so you are always ready to shop "on-the-fly."
It's so easy to know what to buy. Just turn the cards over and Shop On the Fly.

When you have time to stop by the store, simply use the color-coded meal deck to select the main dishes, side dishes and treats you would like to prepare.

You can easily choose recipes right in the store as you think through your plans for the next few days, and see what is on sale!

Slide the chosen recipes into the magnetic card holder, then turn the holder over and you'll see that a completely organized shopping list has been created for you.

Follow the color coding straight down, and you'll see the ingredients are organized in one of seven general grocery store areas. You can easily gather all the ingredients - on-the-fly!

Sweet Extravaganza WEEK NINE and winner


Our winner for WEEK EIGHT is: Stacy from Life "Inside". Congratulations!!

Stacy said...
Once upon a time a beautiful baby boy was born during the first week of March. Now in most parts of our great country the month of March means we are on the cusp of spring, but this is not the case in the MatSu Valley, Alaska where the baby boy was born. In Alaska March means winter is still raging on & to make matter worse, the winds often peak at 80+mph in the Valley during this time.

For the boy's first 5 birthdays his mother didn't allow the harsh weather to affect his birthday festivities. However it happened the very day of his 6th birthday fell on a school day & the boy was very excited to share a birthday treat with all his Kindergarten friends.
So the mommy spent hours decorating 2 dozen beautiful cupcakes with a variety of sugary confections for her son's class. About 20 minutes before the classroom celebration was to begin the mommy loaded the cupcakes into her minivan that was parked in the garage, safe from the harsh arctic elements.

As the mommy parked in the school parking lot, she was acutely aware that the Chinook winds were violently tossing her van from side to side. She said a little prayer hoping she would be able to make it into the building with her precious cargo.

The mommy had made it about 1/2 way to the building when a enormous gust of wind struck the cupcake-toting mommy head on, ripping the tray of yumminess from her arms. Needless to say, the mommy was devastated. About a dozen cupcakes were strewn in the snow bank just inches away, while the cupcakes that had survived the fall and we still in the tray were now covered in a thick layer of grey glacial silt that had been carried by the wind. The birthday treat was ruined.

Quickly the mommy gathered the debris, hopped in her minivan & managed to purchase 2 dozen store bought frosting & gummy worm decorated doughnuts and deliver them to the classroom with just seconds to spare. And while the children all loved the treat, both the mommy & the boy were heartbroken that their cupcake vision had been ruined.

Hopefully by the boy's 7th birthday the mommy will have been able to obtain a cupcake courier (do they even sell these in Alaska?) to prevent such a tragedy from happening again..........

Thank you to everyone who entered! We had a blast reading every one's stories!!

This week to enter, just leave us a comment with why you'd like to win!

This week's giveaway will end on Friday June 27th!

Fabulous Tip Friday

Well, I hope everyone is ready for the weekend! I know I am and I am ready for some fun in the sun with my kids. So today is our "Fabulous Tip Friday," and I haven't been getting the tips from all of our readers like I thought I would! Come on everyone...I want to hear about them. So we thought we would sweeten the pot and thanks to our awesome sponsor KABOOST, you can win a great prize this time. So if you would like to win a Kaboost for your own home then this is what you need to do to win. Yes, 1 winner will win a Kaboost of their own!

Check out this video about Kaboost!

1. Leave 2 of your best tips about anything that will make our lives better or easier. (Leave it in the comments)

2. Post about this contest on your blog or site. If you don't have a at least 5 friends and thell them about it. (and copy us on the email)

So in the comments you need to list the 2 tips, a link to your post and your email address. If you do not have all of them..we cannot count your entry.

Contest will run until July 4th, 2008! 12:00pm Est.
So I thought I would post my tips!
1. If you collect a lot of to go menus like I do, then give them a 3 hold punch and stick them altogether in a 3 ring binder and label it Menus! Then you know right where to go when you don't feel like cooking!
2. Take some full body shot pictures of family members and them laminate them. Cut them and put magnets on the back of them for a fun game for your kids. Put them on the frig and have them guess who the person is. Works best with young kids.
3. Nevaeh has been a stinker lately when putting her to bed. She tells me she is not tired. So I told her I would get the MAGIC SLEEPING POWDER out for her. She thought that was really cool! So I grab the powder everynight and sprinkle it over her while I sing a song to the angels to protect her. It works like a charm! Another idea is to buy a salt shaker from the dollar store and fill it with the baby powder! Label it Magic Sleeping Powder for an added touch!

Doce Vida was created under the mantra that every woman should feel fabulous about her body no matter what size or shape she may be. Arising from the culture of Brazil, where women are passionate, vibrant, self-assured and sexy, the flattering fits and styles of Doce Vida’s Ativa™ collection features an ultra-soft, full-motion 12% stretch fabric that feels like butter against your skin as it wicks away moisture so you, the serious athlete, can keep your body moving in comfort and style. Doce Vida has created workout wear that has a seamless fit for continuous movement. Say good-bye to tugging and pulling to keep your workout gear in place -- no more uncomfortable shifting. Doce Vida fits throughout all movement and contours to your body in all the right places.

The strategic placement of Ativa’s piping helps elongate and accentuate. Available in eight vibrant colors, this line offers multiple options for individual expression.

Doce Vida has some amazing workout clothes for women and we all highly recommend checking them out!

Clek Booster Seat

Here is a booster seat that is a must have! The Clek is the first booster seat with the LATCH feature. The clek booster seats are designed with an integrated rigid LATCH system to deliver both the safety of LATCH and the convenience of uncomplicated installation, features typically at odds with one another.

The Clek is very easy to install, all you do is place it in a car that is LATCH compatible (all newer cars have LATCH), Then you just push the seat back into the LATCH clips and you know when it is installed when you hear it "click"

Once the seat is installed you will notice while driving the seat does not move at all. Other booster seats will slide a little in the seat when you turn hard, this seat does not budge!

It is well worth the money too, for the safety of your child we highly recommend this seat for ALL your kids!

Read Our Mommies Thoughts:

Amanda finds the Clek to be more safe then the average booster, read why here.
Shanda's family was very impressed with all she learned from clek's website alone and highly recommends Clek.
Kristin thinks all toddlers and young children should have one

Sweet Extravaganza WEEK EIGHT and winner


Our winner for WEEK SEVEN is: Mary Ann Click congratulations!

Mary Ann Click said...
Hi my name is Mary Ann, I am the 80 year old Mother and Grandma Great to 7. Let me tell you a little as to why I would want this cupcake courier. My daughter Christine, is almost 50 years old she's been teaching in a classroom for almost 15 years and went back to school for her masters. She works very hard and has always been one of those teachers that makes the classroom special for her students. From Halloween parties with massive amounts of cupcakes to Christmas parties. She gives each child Christmas presents even. That's how much she loves her students. She is one of those who buy way to much stuff so she has those flimsy cupcake holders but she would just die if we were to win one of these. I don't think she would ever think to buy one herself so I would love to surprise her. Thanks so much and I will send you an email with my contact info. I don't have an email address although my children always try to get me one. Thank you!

The Cupcake Courier is proudly sponsoring a 12 week event for Mother’s! We know all you Mom’s have cupcakes to bring to class, and to parties... what better way to safely and fashionably if we may add to all your events! You will be able to bring enough cupcakes for the whole class, since it will transport thirty-six cupcakes. The three easy to remove trays allow you to access those perfect cupcakes way on the bottom.

Would you like to be a winner this week?

To enter leave a comment and tell us a story about cupcakes, start off with "Once upon a time..."

We will run this weeks until next Friday June 20th (I know we are a week behind, but this will put us back on the giveaways ending on Fridays!)
Make sure you adhere to our contest rules and please leave a valid email address if yours is not in your profile.
