AMFam’s Stand Up for Family

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Before I had the boys, I used to watch Comedy Central ALL.THE.TIME. I love comedy, especially when it’s really funny stand up, but once I had kids running around the house who understood the English language beyond “mama” and “baba”, it just seemed inappropriate to continue watching things that were so overtly vulgar.

 

I miss laughing as hard as I used to, but I also want to be able to share in the fun with my kids. I have too much on my DVR most nights to wait until the kids are in bed to watch stand-up routines.

 

American Family Insurance is giving family the opportunity to watch stand-up together and NOT have to worry about the content or little innocent ears hearing something that’s wholly inappropriate with their Stand Up For Family comedy special. Stand-up For Family is a handful of actual stand-up comedians like Bill Bellamy, Rodney Perry, and Tony Roberts (plus more!) talking about thins ALL parents and kids can relate to, and things I often write about in my blog (only without the curse words).

The fight over taking baths, how life has changed for kids these days compared to when we were younger (ahem, no cell phones and video game controllers with JOYSTICKS), and even manners.

 

I’m so happy AmFam is doing this, and you can go to their website to watch the videos of the stand up routines now! No more waiting for prime time (my kids are in bed by then) I think a lot of us parents miss a good old fashioned belly laugh from a comedian; I know I do!

Puppies vs. Babies

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Puppies vs. Babies for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

So I just heard about this online contest going on right now and until November 21st- and while it seems so silly to me, I had to blog about it!

 

The contest is called Puppies vs. Babies and it’s trying to figure out who America thinks is cuter- puppies, or babies, And the winner of the contest gets $5,000! I guess that’s not so silly after all, right?

 

Now my vote is clearly swayed. I am not at all a dog person, and while I would agree that puppies are adorable- they do not hold a CANDLE to the cuteness that is a squishy little baby. Sure, they both drool, they’re both wrinkly, they both whine and pee themselves on occasion- but really, PUPPIES cuter than BABIES? I don’t think so! Little babies look like wrinkly old bald men, it just doesn’t get much cuter than that; plus there’s that “new baby smell” that nothing else can imitate, especially not a stinky little carpet pooping dog.

 

Moms unite! Go and vote in the Puppies vs. Babies online contest and lets show the canines whose boss! We can’t let something that walks on all fours take the title from humans!

Looking to save some money?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Straight Talk for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Why not start with your cell phone bill?

I know i’ve been going on and on and ON about cell phones lately, really i’ve  going on and on about a lot of things- but with us just having paid a ridiculous sum of money for he boys birthdays and the Count’s lunch buffet show, it’s becoming very clear just how tight our finances are going to be until we get all of our money straight.

Another cell provider for your consideration: Straight Talk. Get Everything you need while still cutting your cell phone bill in half, possibly even more. You don’t have to worry about contracts, surprise fees, and no credit checks (I for one know how much of a hassle having or getting good credit is these days).

They offer reliable nationwide coverage, and reconditioned phones for only $10.00 from only the most trusted manufacturers. I could even get my beloved Android on Straight Talk

You won’t have to worry about running out of minutes before you can Call a friend Straight Talk 2 has plans that fit just about everyone, affordably. Unlimited everything is only $45 per month- that’s most likely LESS than half of what you’re paying now. Do they have you Hook, line and sinker yet?

Why pay more when you can pay much, MUCH less for the same thing? And without worry of paying an enormous cancelation fee if you aren’t satisfied? Again, another thing that I am all to familiar with, and none too pleased about. I could be using that money for birthday or even Christmas presents, instead I have to pay an enormous cancelation bill.

Don’t take my word for it, watch the commercial for yourself:
