$25 Gift Card to BJ’s

My Blog Spark along with BJ’s Wholesale Club and General Mills recently provided me with a generous package: a 60-day free trial membership to BJ’s Wholesale Club, a gift card and a packet of great coupons, along with some information on all the store has to offer. I eagerly took them up on the offer!

While there are no BJ’s in Columbus, I was able to go to the one in Cleveland. I stocked up on fresh fruits and veggies, cereal, almonds and quite a few other goodies! It was a great experience and I am looking forward to going back when I am in town next week! If you are interested in trying BJ’s Wholesale Club and head there with $25 enter the giveaway below!

To find a BJ’s near you go to: http://www.bjs.com/general/locator/index

If you have a BJ’s near you, leave a comment telling me why you need a $25 gift card this holiday season and what you are looking forward to stocking up on!

CONTEST! and Thanksgiving Recap

Back from a busy weekend full of family, friends and tons of wonderful food! We had a great time running all over the place and just enjoying this wonderful time of year!

I took pictures of a lot of things, but decided after reading everyone great Thanksgiving posts, that I will just move on instead of going backwards. It seems like I am hardly going to be able to keep up with everything we have going on right now, and there just isn’t time to go backwards. 🙂 I hope/think you understand!

I just wanted to remind you to send me or comment about your favorite holiday tip, recipe or idea and you will have a chance to win one of the three gift baskets full of great kitchen tools and treats from Progresso!

I will be back with pictures of our holiday decorating and dinner!!
