Victoria Day Monday Madness Giveaway Linky

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope that you are enjoying the Long Weekend!  We have been busy at my mother's house this weekend, helping get her backyard ready for the summer. She has quite a large lot, and has been plaqued by a herniated disc that has left her not able to do much.  Hubby has been fixing up her gardens and the kids and I have been over helping as well.  It was a LOT of work (still a little more to be done) but it's starting to look great.

It's Official - I Am A Soccer Mom Again

Mr. J played soccer for a few years, but then decided to give it up and focus on karate.  Of course, once the season had started he was wishing he had signed up - but it was too late for that year.  He made sure we knew that he wanted to get back into it this season, so when registration opened I signed him up again, and the first time for Mr. K.

Schick Hydro® 5 Mens Amazon Rate and Review {giveaway} #SchickAmbassador

We were sent a Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor for my husband to review. He gave it a try, and shared his thoughts with me

"It does a close shave, glides easily and has a smooth finish".
 He was happy with the results. 

The new Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor has an upgraded Hydrating Gel Reservoir which hydrates throughout each shave, a larger Guard Bar for increased skin stretch, and reduced Blade Span to minimize skin bulge which all help to get a smooth shave – all the while with the signature Flip Trimmer for hard-to-reach places.

How would you like to try out a Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor? I have 25 of them to giveaway to men. This works a little differently than the giveaways I usually run on Tales of Mommyhood. For this, it's an Amazon review and giveaway. Here is how it works:

We are looking for men to test out this razor, so the first 25 readers to fill in THIS form will receive a Schick Hydro® 5 disposable razor to test out (either for themselves or their husbands/son) Then you will write a review on (note - you must have an account and made a purchase within the last 6 months to do this).

May 16th Monday Madness Giveaway Linky

Happy Monday everyone!  I hope you had a great weekend.  The weather wasn't super around here, but the rain did hold off on Saturday for us to do some work outside at my mothers house.  Last night Mr. K started soccer - it went great, even though it was freezing cold.

Let's All #FlippForMoms This May {giveaway}

May is here, and with it brings Mother's Day!  It's a day I look forward to every year. Seeing what my kids have created for me, and spending time with my mom is always a lovely day.

This year started off with breakfast in bed (even though Mr. K ate half of it) and then we took a lovely walk and I went out for a few hours with my mom, aunts and cousins.
The day finished off with a delicious dinner hubby bbq'd and an ice cream cake the boys picked out for me.
