wee bit wednesday v47.




{one} what’s the worst date you’ve ever been on?
Wow. I need to think way back!
It must have been when my date wanted me to pay for my own dinner. How tacky!

{two} if you could be any other person for one day, who would it be?
Princess Catherine. I have to agree with Leigh on this one.
I would love to know what a day is like for her now!

{three} what is your favorite kind of cheese?
I love cheese! I have at least one string cheese a day!
But my fave is mozzarella with some olive oil, tomato and basil. Yummy!

{four} do you remember your 1st grade teacher?
Yes! She was sweet and lovely! I most recently taught 1st grade so it makes me wonder if my students will remember me too!

{five} who is the first person you call when you have a bad day?
My mom. She listens to me like no one else can.

{six} were you ever in a school talent show?
Yeah, I think I did a dance number with my friends.
I wish I could remember what song it was!

{seven} who is your favorite fictional character?
Angela Chase from My So Called Life. So many layers to her character!

{eight} can you open your eyes underwater?
NO! I don't even like to swim without plugging my nose! But I do!

{nine} do you look at the keyboard when you type?
Yes. That is a skill I wish I would have learned how to do correctly a long time ago! I am not a two finger typer or anything, but my hands don't go where they are "supposed" to!

{ten} when was the last time you took a nap?
Sunday. I had so much going on this past weekend it wiped me out!
I almost NEVER take naps. I feel guilty when I do!
 
xo.

And now some mid-week hopping!

Little Miss Momma is a fabulous blog because what she writes about is so real! Ashley gives us fresh and fun little insights into her life. She is so honest and it comes across almost like you are having coffee with her sitting right across from you! I love Ashley's photos too! She always adds the best photos to her posts, making it more enjoyable to read! She is crafty and hilarious!

{Save Money} with CouponChief.com



I do most of my shopping online. To be honest I did about 80% of my Christmas shopping online! Why? I love to take advantage of using coupon codes! I find it saves me more time and money then it would to cut a coupon, drive to the store, search for the product, search for the size and wait in line to check out.

I must admit that sometimes finding coupon codes for my favorite online retailers is not easy. I don't want to subscribe to every retailer's newsletter just so I can get their coupon codes! That is why I was thrilled to be introduced to CouponChief.com! This comprehensive website offers the largest source of online coupons and store discounts for apparel, electronics, travel, entertainment and more! There are over 50,000 coupons for over 15,000 stores!

The site is so easy to use! Check out this great how-to video! It shows you how you can easily search for coupon codes by product category or by store name!

The community at CouponChief.com is also great because it allows you to rate the coupons that you use and leave comments. You can also share the fabulous coupon codes that you find with your friends and family in just one click!

One of the coolest features on Coupon Chief is how you can make money by uploading coupons you find through their pays-to-share program! You just upload the coupon you find to Coupon Chief. Then, if someone uses your code to make a purchase, you get 2%. Wow! How cool is that?!

I will not be making any more online purchases without checking out CouponChief.com first! I highly recommend using this site! You can also find Coupon Chief on Facebook and Twitter.

{Giveaway}: Win A Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway in Columbus, Ohio! Fun For The Whole Family! (ARV $375) - CLOSED



Lions, Cyclones, and Dinosaurs, OH MY!!!

Have I got an affordable, exciting and fun-filled family vacation option for you!

And guess what? It is right here in my home state of Ohio!

As you may know, Columbus is home to the #1 Zoo and #1 Science Center in the US! Did you catch that? #1! Therefore, it is naturally the perfect place to go for unforgettable family fun this summer!

Experience Columbus just launched an incredible Roar and Explore Adventure Getaway, featuring both of those top-ranked experiences and packed with family fun!

Starting at just $375 plus tax for a family of four, a savings of $84, the Adventure Getaway allows guests to experience a trio of top Columbus adventures at a surprisingly low cost. 

The package includes:

Four tickets to The Columbus Zoo and Aquarium
Rated the No. 1 zoo in America by USA Travel Guide, Zoo visitors can visit Polar Frontier, where polar bears frolic underwater and swim overhead.  They can journey through the African forest, surrounded by leopards, okapis, and bonobos and visit the Zoo’s beloved family of western lowland gorillas, featuring 54-year-old Colo, the first gorilla born in captivity.

Four tickets to Zoombezi Bay
The only water park adjacent to a zoo, Zoombezi Bay is home to more than a dozen water slides and features, including Cyclone, a spine-tingling 20-plus-mph water ride with a 55-foot drop.  Zoombezi Bay will open two new waterslides this summer: Python Plunge and Anaconda Falls.

Four tickets to COSI
This summer, dinosaurs take over the science center that’s rated No. 1 for families by Parents magazine. This special exhibition features life-like animatronic dinosaurs plus simulator pods where kids can hunt, eat and flee predators.  Guests can also ride a high-wire unicycle, use sonar technology and much more in COSI’'s more than 300 interactive exhibits.

Two nights of accommodations 
(Columbus-area Drury Inn & Suites is the Roar and Explore preferred hotel.) Prices may vary with other hotels.

Packages are designed for a family of four, but additional family members may be added when booking. I know what you are saying. What an incredible value! All of that for just $375 for a family of four!? Yes. 

Can you imagine all of the FUN that will be packed into 3 days for you and your family?! Wow!

Book It: You can book this amazing adventure 
by visiting Columbus Family Fun or you can call (888) 795-3701.

Okay now buckle your seatbelts ladies and gentlemen.
You may just spot a GORILLA, or perhaps a DINOSAUR, or you could get WET!
It is about to get VERY exciting! Are you ready?

Columbus Family Fun is giving away 
one of these amazing packages to one of my readers!
Can I get a woo-hoo?
If you can get your family to Columbus, Ohio this summer for an exciting adventure then read on!
