    ENTER TO WIN: $50 Gift Card From Hanes

    I will have you know that I am permanently wearing a pair of Hanes socks these days. I got a few pairs during BlogHer and do laundry specifically to have them readily available. It’s like walking on a cloud… a furry little cloud filled with sunshine and goodness.
    Wait – what am I supposed to be talking about again? Ah yes! THE CONTEST!!!

    Hanes offered me $50 to use on their website to purchase Natalie some back to school items. We are ALWAYS in need of some zipper hoodie sweatshirts. I am a BIG FAN of layering because you never know what the kids will be doing at school. I rather be safe knowing Natalie can put on or take off her sweatshirt instead of being uncomfortably cold or hot all day long.

    She was in a cr-azy kinda mood… and I just went with it. Give the girl pink and wild things begin to happen.

    I opted for 2 of the Hanes EcoSmart™ Girls’ Full Zip Pop Color Hoodie Sweatshirts (Buy 2 for $18) and sweatpants ($4.99 each). They were so soft and sparkly that Natalie refused to take them off until bath time!

    Naturally we got her some underwear as well. A package of 9 100% cotton bikinis was just $12.

    And little Liam was in the market for new socks so I snagged him 2 packages of the EcoSmart Boys Black No Show Socks for $14.

    We are all READY!
