Weekly Winnings This Week Through Sunday, December 22nd!

Wow, this week was just wonderful in winnings!! I couldn't believe how lucky I was and am so happy to be able to share some "gifts" with the family now!

  • AC Airlines Night Buddies (remind me of a pillow pet but with glowing eyes!)
  • Your Story Locket (with 5 charms!)
  • Large Royal Bean Bag Sack
Now, I have to share a picture with the bean bag! I was in shock when I won it...I couldn't believe I won it and still can't! I have been entering different contests for bigger bean bags for my husband. This one takes the cake! I never expected it to be THIS HUGE!!!

All three of them can fit on it MOST of the time without fighting. My husband can sit in it and still have a kid next to him! I couldn't imagine a better gift for him and I know there would be no way I would have been able to get it for him other than entering giveaways! He says the best Christmas gift he could have ever gotten! And yes, I let him open it when it got here! I won it last Monday and it was to our house already on Thursday! It was so huge that he was the only one to be able to pick it up anyways and then he LOVED putting the REMOVABLE AND WASHABLE cover on!!!! Like I say, it's worth it to enter these contests, someone has to win and it could be you!!! 

Weekly Menu Plan December 23rd to December 29th

Monday - Stuffed Shells or Spaghetti

Tuesday - Christmas Eve Dinner

Wednesday - Christmas Day Dinner

Thursday - Leftovers

Well, after a few weeks of winning nothing, I finally got some great prizes!

Frozen Secrets

Sometimes there are things you look for in certain movies that are shout out to fans. This is especially true in Sci-Fi and comic films anymore, but it's always fun to see them in other movies too. I didn't catch any of these myself when we went to see it in theaters but here are some Easter eggs from Disney's Frozen.

Remember this couple? Looks like they got invited to the coronation in Arendelle. Check out the guests in the bottom left below.

Check out the candies Anna and her sister love. Look kinda familiar?
That's right Sugar Rush candies from Wreck-It Ralph

Hidden Mickey :)

 And this little tidbit isn't so much a catch as a fun fact:
Artist Lisa Keene’s painting—completed during the development phase of “Tangled” and based on “The Swing” by Jean-HonorĂ© Fragonard—made such an impression on “Frozen” filmmakers, it became part of Anna’s signature song, “For the First Time in Forever,” when she leaps into the air and mimics the painting’s pose.

An Experiment....Conclusion....Hmmmm

If you remember back in September, the kids sent letters to their favorite Disney characters. I don't know if it has just gotten so popular because of Pinterest or what but at least they got something back. They each wrote to a different character: Ariel, Winnie the Pooh, and Lightning McQueen. Well, this is what they got back yesterday....

Very generic BUT the kids loved them. They were happy that they got mail from DISNEY! I was a bit disappointed but at least they weren't! It took 2 1/2 months but I think it was something fun we did together and we might try to do again! Have you tried to write a letter to a Disney character? How did it end for you?

MIA From Weekly Winnings

It's not that I don't want to post what I have's that I have hit a dry spell!! Two weeks and not winning anything! Only good news is for Grey Thursday/Black Friday, I got some pretty awesome/amazing deals! Hopefully next week I can come back and say that I have won at least something!
