Giveaway #2 – How do you Partteee?

Remember those Sunsweet Ones that I was giving away a couple of weeks ago? They were awesome and tasted just like candy but were, er, well, prunes! The PR company, Fleishman Hillard, that contacted me saw that most people’s comments were about how they hated the thought of drinking prune juice and once that contest was over they contacted me about PlumStart and PlumStart Light, a plum juice.

This may be TMI but as I feel like we’re old friends I’ll go ahead. My English prudeness hates potty talk but pregnant potty talk seems to be ok for me! So, one morning I felt like I was gonna burst and I sent Hubby out super early to go grab some prune juice. I gagged it down (YAK-O) and vowed never to drink the juice again so I ran out and bought some prunes.

This Thursday the juice arrived from Sunsweet and I seriously felt like I was gonna gag. I knew I had to drink it so I could let ya’ll know but I honestly thought I was gonna write my first bad review. How wrong I was! This stuff doesn’t even taste like prunes and is not thick like normal prune juice, in fact it’s more like a juice blend but is still 100% juice and still great for you! Plus as it’s called Plum Juice you can tell your kiddos that it’s not prune juice! LOL!

So, without further ado, how do all your pregnant Mamas who wanted the Sunsweet Ones enter??!! This is open to everyone BTW and there are 10 winners so you’ve got a great chance of winning!

So, what are you gonna win? Well the Sunsweet folks are gonna give 10 of my readers the chance to win a coupon good for a FREE bottle of PlumStart. All you have to do is:

    The way my hubbies family and I party is to play the CVS game. We all do CVS deals (a local drug store that you can get steals of deals with coupons)and get tons of free stuff. We then donate it to the game and play like we are having a white elephant party. Someone wraps all the donations, one for each person in funny paper and then we pick numbers. #1 picks first a present and unwraps it. #2 can take that present or unwrap a new one. #3 can take #1 or #2 present or wrap a new one etc. It is so much fun… especially when my hubbie unwraps Depends Undergarments and gets stuck taking them home! 🙂

    My neighbor ladies and I like enough a lot but don’t seem to have time to get together so we started a movie and dinner club. Once a month we get together and watch a movie, then have dinner (potluck, or whatever the hostess wants) and talk about the movie. It’s great!

  23. Eat, drink, talk, and just enjoy sometime without the kids.

    My sister and I have been heavily into mummy deals since February. We saw an article in one of the Sunday papers. She is from Valparaiso and I live in Kansas but I still follow your website because I can still use a lot of your information. We just love you. At parties I love to visit with other people and family because normally you don’t get to see them that much because we are always working. So I try to enjoy it when I can. I love Sunsweet Prunes, they are wonderful. I’ve never tried to juice, I can only imagine that it is also wonderful tasting!

  26. Melissa Huizinga says:

    At parties I like to the delicious homemade food. 🙂 And of course I like to talk too.

    My favorite way to party is to have it at my house during the summer, when kids and family can play in the pool, eat food hot off the grill and friends can hang out and play ladder ball and bean bag toss. I’m looking forward to that this summer as I have been on bedrest for the last 16 weeks and still have 6 more to go cause we are expecting twin boys in May! I could really use that Plum Juice!!!

    My husbands family has a tradition of celebrating big birthday parties no matter how old you are. So every year for my birthday, which is a week before Halloween and shortly after International Talk Like a Pirate day (Sept. 19). We have a Pirate Party. We have been doing this for 3 years now, and last year was the first Pirate Party for our new little one, so of course we dressed him up in Pirate Gear. It’s always so much fun, no matter how old you are always remember to have fun like a child at times!
