ABC Mouse Giveaway






INSTAGRAM is an educational website for young children that provides online learning activities for 2-6 year olds at preschool, pre-k, and kindergarten levels.

I used to always see commercials for ABCmouse on kid's television networks when I had cable. Sprout maybe? It looked like such a great learning tool so I tried a free trial month when my boy was around 2 years old. I couldn't get him to stop ripping the keys off my laptop keyboard and actually complete an activity. Kids learn and grow differently so I decided to wait until he showed more interest in this type of learning. 3, Oh, it's a magic number.

You can choose your own teacher avatar and add more than one child. classroom_large


Here is a peek into the 1 (25)

Raine helped me make his avatar look him and picked his clothes out.

photo 2 (27) Raine picked out this rad robot tee as a prize when he completed a lesson. He also has a little pet bunny named Babe.

It's nice being able to cook dinner or shower without hearing a repetitive "MA!" He will sit and play educational games and loves the art section. I can see him growing a lot using this great website.


Raine makes sure I stay with him to cuddle and sing along to the songs. He has finally started to try to say new words thanks to ABCMouse. I am very excited and proud of him. photo 1 (19)

I loved paint/color by number activities when I was in kindergarten and first grade. It turns out that I passed that love down to Raine. He loves watching the portraits appear piece by piece in the number, letter and sight word puzzles. photo 2 (21)

It's really great being able to set time limits on how long the website (and certain places within) can be accessed each day.

Raine is getting an iPad Mini for Christmas so I will be downloading the app for him so he can have it ready to go for him at his dad's house and won't have to worry about any more keys going missing from my computer! It can also be used on your iPhone, any iPad, Kindle Fire (2nd generation and above), and most Android phones and tablets. It costs $7.95 a month, but they post deals online all the time. Right now the special prices are:

$79 for a 1–year membership (2 months free!)

$99 for 2 full years! (Save over 48%)


I have a perfect holiday gift for your child(ren) waiting to be won! ABCmouse has given me a code for 1 full year access to their site! Prize will be emailed to the winner. Good luck!

Deadly, Calm and Cold by Susannah Sandlin Tour and Giveaway

The Collectors
Book 2
Susannah Sandlin

Genre: Romantic Suspense

Publisher: Montlake Romance

Date of Publication: December 2, 2014

ISBN: 978-1477826812

Number of pages: 280
Word Count: Approx 88,000

Cover Artist: Kerrie Robertson/

Book Description:

From award-winning author Susannah Sandlin comes the second book in The Collectors series.

How far will ordinary people go to protect their secrets? The Collectors’ games are as much about manipulating lives as finding lost treasure. Everyone is expendable as the ruthless C7 pushes people into gambling with their lives in order to find priceless objects lost to history.

Samantha Crowe's secrets could ruin her career, while Brody Parker's could get him killed. They become pawns for two Collectors seeking Bad King John's crown jewels, which disappeared in rural England back when Robin Hood roamed Nottingham.

This time, however, the Collectors--a ruthless dotcom billionaire and a desperate London detective--might not be playing for the same team, leaving Sam and Brody trapped in the middle.

One thing's for sure: If either hope to survive, Sam and Brody will have to find a way to overcome their distrust--and their growing attraction--in order to succeed on this winner-take-all treasure hunt.

Available at Amazon  BN  Book Depository

Samantha hadn’t intended to watch Brody Parker take a shower, only to peek in the window to see if he was in the bathroom so he could let her in the house.
But damn, that man was sexy. He was facing her, his head thrown back and eyes closed as the water cascaded over every ridge and muscle and . . . everything. She had to look, right? She might have taken a vow of celibacy but she hadn’t taken a vow of blindness.
You’re an absolutely pathetic loser, Sam’s inner nag said, and she agreed. Anyone who’d stand in the middle of a monsoon and ogle a man in his shower should have LOSER stamped on her forehead.
As soon as Brody stepped out of the water and saw her, his mouth and eyes battling for which could open the widest in shock, she stepped away from the window and splashed her way around the corner, returning to the back door. And yeah, giggled a little, the laughter bubbling up and spilling out before she could get it under control. She hadn’t laughed much in the last couple of days.
She’d never been quite so wet and cold in her life. The wind had picked up, stabbing horizontal blades of rain into her face as she waited at the back door. For a few seconds, she wondered if he might leave her out here, but then the door opened and he stood there with a white towel slung loosely around his hips, which would have been sexy as hell except for the black T-shirt he’d pulled on. Droplets of water dripped from his black wavy hair onto his shoulders, getting said T-shirt wet.
“Nice fashion statement.” She gave him her best lopsided smile as he moved aside to let her in. “You’re shy about going without a shirt? You have man boobs, don’t you?” Which would be a crime against nature.
“I certainly do not.” Looking offended, Brody pulled the T-shirt up, exposing a rock-hard set of damp abs and nice, firm pecs without a trace of man boob. He jerked the shirt back down before she started salivating, which was good, given her celibacy and all.
“Why were you leering in my bathroom window?” He cocked his head. “Are you stalking me? How long had you been watching?”
Not nearly long enough. “Just a few seconds. I knocked on the door earlier and you didn’t answer.”
He glanced out the door, where the rain almost obscured the garage. “Where’s your car?”
“Ah, that’s the real story. Do you have a fire lit?”
Brody closed the door, shutting out the hiss of rain hitting the slate courtyard. “Not yet. I was going to do it as soon as I showered. Give me a minute to get dressed.” He made no attempt to leave, though, but instead treated her to a head-to-toe visual inspection that she could swear grew a little heated when his gaze landed on where her soaked, thin sweater clung to her breasts.
Her nipples perked up just to make sure he could see them, the traitors. They didn’t want her to be celibate. They wanted to be touched and licked and nibbled on, even if the attention came at the lips and tongue and teeth of the man who’d deliberately punctured her tire.

About the Author:
Susannah Sandlin writes paranormal romance and romantic thrillers from Auburn, Alabama, on top of a career in educational publishing that has thus far spanned five states and six universities—including both Alabama and Auburn, which makes her bilingual.

She grew up in Winfield, Alabama, but was also a longtime resident of New Orleans, so she has a highly refined sense of the absurd and an ingrained love of SEC football, cheap Mardi Gras trinkets, and fried gator on a stick. She’s the author of the award-winning Penton Legacy paranormal romance series, a spinoff novel, Storm Force, a standalone novelette, Chenoire, and a new romantic thriller series, The Collectors, beginning with Lovely, Dark, and Deep.

Writing as Suzanne Johnson, she also is the author of the Sentinels of New Orleans urban fantasy series.

Did you know?

One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. Breast
cancer is the second leading cause of death among women.

Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. 1 in every 1,000 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

The Good News.

 Death rates from breast cancer have been declining since about 1990, in part due to better screening and early detection, increased awareness, and continually improving treatment options.

Right now there are nearly 3 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
When detected and treated early, 5-year relative survival for localized breast cancer is 98.5

Join the Fight

 Annual screening mammography beginning at age 40.

 Breast self-examination is optional but beneficial. Women who choose to do breast self-examination should receive instruction from their health providers.

 Clinical breast examination every three years for women in their 20s and 30s, and annually for women aged 40 and older.
