Weekend Update

I've received some cool stuff in the mail recently. I finally got the "Cars" beach towel. It's very cute, my son loves it! I also got the 2nd Hershey bracelet, with the free coupon for Hershey kissables candy. One disappointment though was the P&G beauty kit, w/ $20 P&G purchase. The samples were very small and the bag wasn't that impressive. Overall, P&G premiums are very nice, like the Cars towel and a Disney book I got a few years ago. Be sure to check out the huge list of freebies and stock up on gifts for upcoming birthdays or think ahead for the holidays!

    Did anyone see Pirates of the Caribbean? I had seen the first one a few years ago and loved it. This one, not so much. First, it was too long and they had too many story lines going on, with the Cracken, Davy Jones and the whole political story line. I think they should have focused on the love triangle with Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom and Kiera Knightley. I think that was one of the most interesting parts of the movie. I hope the 3rd Pirates focuses more on the most important story lines!

    Pirate mania has swept stores everywhere. M&M's has a new candy, white chocolate M&M's, Kodak has an instant win game, and McDonald's has a game, win a new car, 1 each day for 28 days!
