Have you ever been to Gordmans.  Their first store came to our area about a year ago and they just built another one about 40 minutes away from me.  I saw the name but had no idea what kind of store it was, what they sold.  If you have never been to a Gordmans then you need to treat yourself and GO!  But first plan to be there at least an hour or longer you will find yourself lost in all the good deals and drooling over all the home decor items.

Summer dresses low as $15 each and lots of other dresses at HALF the price of normal retail stores.Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #shoes

Flip Flops for kids starting at just $2.99 with lots of fun prints and colors to pick from.  They have shoe’s for the whole family, from infant all the way to mens and womens.  Don’t forget to check the clearance section I found these adorable “croc” like shoes for girls only $5, perfect for summer.

Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #babySince I am having a baby in just a few weeks of course I had to check out the blankets, I was happy to see some adorable prints and prices slashed to make these an even better deal.  They also had a large clearance section on infant and toddler clothing with prices low as $3.  As always, clearance takes a little more digging but so many great deals to be found.

 

Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #maternityClothes

I literally GASPED with excitement when I rounded the corner and found they had a maternity section…. or maybe that was just the fact that I am BIG and pregnant and having a hard time catching my breath…lol.  Either way I was SUPER happy to see a large selection of comfortable and cute maternity clothes.  I only have 5 weeks to go, but finding shorts long enough to cover this baby pump is getting harder. So I was pretty excited to find at 2 pack of Motherhood shirts for $24, that makes them only $12 a shirt. I got the blue shirt in the photo below as well as a white shirt in the BumpStart 2 pack. I also loved this super comfortable Motherhood dress perfect for summer.Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #maternityClothes #35WeeksPregnant

If you want a little color to add some life in your house they have a huge selection on FUN decorative pillows.  Both indoor and outside pillows. The photo below only shows HALF the selection, they have so many colors and patters to pick from!Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #pillows

If you need a jean jacket, a jean skirt, jean shorts or just a pair of jeans they have a whole WALL of jeans, you are bound to find the perfect fit. They also have a lot of jeans with “bling” on them… which I kind of like :)  Once I pack away these maternity jeans I will have to go see what I can find for new jeans for myself.

Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #JeansGordmans also has a toy section, pet section and kitchen section. I simply love the bright colors and unique items like owl measuring spoons and fox spatulas (what does the fox say lol).  They had Rachel Ray sets for 40% off and so many other good sales too.

Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #kitchenTheir home decor section is HUGE, everything from wall hangings, lamps, candles, frames, chairs, shelves, tables…. outdoor furniture too.  Like I said before you can spend HOURS in this store, so many fun things to look at… and the low prices make it hard to not fill up your cart.

Gordmans Giveaway and store review #Gordmans, #deals, #GreatPlaceToShop #HOMEDecorOH and if you happen to bring your husband… no worries he can do some shopping to.  As they  have a mens section, and a sports section as well. So he can do a little shopping as well.  If you have not taken the time to shop at Gordmans I hope these photos will give you a little taste of what your missing…. go check it out!

Back yard make over in just a few hours, Mothers Day gift ideas from BrylaneHome #MothersDayWhat do you want for MOTHER’S DAY?  I am not the typical woman who wants flowers and chocolates. They have never been my thing… I prefer a gift that I can use, enjoy and is practical.   Believe it or not PATIO TILES were on my wish list this year for Mothers Day.  We moved into an older home 5 years ago and we are in the process of redoing the house and yard.  The back yard has this small nook that was filled with a prickly throne bushes taller than I am.  Last year I spent one day chopping them all down and digging out the roots.  It was nice to have them gone… but it then left me with a big dirt patch that I was not sure what to do with.

It grew a nice batch of weeds, so I cleared them all out… but once again was left with a large dirt patch.  I told my hubby that I would love to put some rocks or pavers down to create a nice place to use and store our patio furniture.   But I don’t have the time or energy to accomplish this project since I am just weeks away from delivering baby number five.

Back yard make over in just a few hours, Mothers Day gift ideas from BrylaneHome #MothersDayThat is when I saw these patio tiles on the BrylaneHome site.  COULD it really be as easy as they say…. could you really just take them out of the box, lay them down and have an instant patio?  Well it was worth a try. But I admit I was a little nervous…. you know the saying “if it seems to good to be true….”.

Here is some info about the patio tiles

Back yard make over in just a few hours, Mothers Day gift ideas from BrylaneHome #MothersDayThe tiles have large spikes on the bottom to help them stay in place.  I smoothed out the ground the best I could, but it still had a lot of rocks and bark in it… it was also not very level. BUT I wanted to see what would happen if I tried to lay the tiles down as is.  I put one in the corner, stepped on it to secure it in place… and then was on to the next one.  In less than 5 minutes I had a whole row done…. HOT DIGGITY I was one excited mama.  In about 20 minutes I had all the tiles laid down.  It was so easy to pull them back up if I made a mistake, but they also stayed in place well with no sliding or shifting.

Copper Accent Kitchen Pantry from BrylaneHome

You do have to put it together, it came in a well packaged box surrounded by foam. Perfect for shipping because lets face it things tend to get banged around while they ship and this keeps them nice and safe.

Copper Accent Kitchen Pantry from BrylaneHome

Putting things together stresses me out a little bit…. BUT BrylanHome makes sure assembly is quick and EASY to understand. All the parts are labeled both on the instructions and on the part themselves.   If you can read a recipe then you can read these instructions. If I can do it anyone can to it :).

Copper Accent Kitchen Pantry from BrylaneHomeI admit that even WITH these awesome instructions I put the shelves in the wrong order…. and had to take it  back apart (oops).  But that was made easier with the cam lock system they have. You screw the peg into the predrilled  hole, then put the peg threw the pre drilled hole. Then lock it into place with the round part that goes into the hole with a philips head screwdriver.  Makes for a nice tight fit, but also easy to take apart (without stripping the screws) if you need to.

I have to say it felt pretty good to put this cute little shelf together ALL BY MYSELF! Turned out simply adorable!

 

 

Copper Accent Kitchen Pantry from BrylaneHomeI actually plan to use this in my closet.  I need some extra storage but I have having a hard time finding a cabinet that was narrow enough.  I think it will be the perfect fit and I plan to put my perfume on top as well as a basket holding my belts and scarves.  SUPER excited that I found the perfect storage solution!

Make sure you keep an eye on our blog, in the next week or two you will have the chance to win some AWESOME prizes thanks to BrylaneHome.

kfc festive feast deal review

Most of you know we do not eat out very often, I tend to cook most our meals at home.  BUT even I like a break, and a quick dinner solution.  If you look at my calendar this month it is CRAZY, something every single day and with 4 kids I am going 10 ways a once.  So this week we let KCF put dinner on the table for under $20 (not bad for my little family of 6).

I walked in saw a huge sign telling me about the Festive Feast. KFC’s newest limited-time offer product— the ever-popular Festive Feast, which is back for this holiday season. KFC’s Festive Feast includes eight pieces of freshly-prepared chicken, two home-style side favorites, four warm, flaky biscuits and a dozen chocolate chip cookies — all for just $19.99.

kfc festive feast

I ordered it, got a mixed bucket of both original and grilled chicken. I was out the door in less than 5 minutes that was easy :).  Once at home I set the table and had dinner on in no time.  Hungry tummies were full and my kids were all happy as can be. The bucket is a mix of dark meat ( I prefer white meat) but it is actually a better fit for my family cause it gives all the kids their own chicken leg, which they normally fight over.   After their tummies were full, they where beyond excited to see me pull a box of cookies out.  They were still warm too… with ooey gooey chocolate chips.  I am totally impressed with how good they were. I may or may not have eaten a few more after the kids went to bed :).

So my family gives the  Festive Feast a HUGE thumbs up and I think we will be grabbing this for dinner again before the end of the month.
Festive Feast is available at your local KFC restaurant until December 29, and we’d love your help to spread the word to your readers! You can find further information here. We’d be happy to send you Chicken Checks so you can try Festive Feast for yourself and/or host a giveaway on your site.

Feel free to follow KFC on Facebook  or KFC on Twitter.
