Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy

by GettingFreedom on April 28, 2010

This giveaway is now closed.  Congrats to the winners Kris (comment #38) and Danyelle (comment #17)!  Thank you to all who entered, followed and subscribed!

When I was pregnant with Nicholas, our oldest child, I gained massive amounts of weight.  Because of this, I have many stretch marks that adorn my belly and hip region.  Which in turn have made me very self conscience, which isn’t a great feeling.

A few months ago I was asked if I would be interested in trying out Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy. This is what their website has to say:

  • Reduces the appearance of stretch marks.
  • Diminishes discoloration.
  • Improves texture.
  • Enhances softness.

Definitely worth trying!  I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, and I have noticed that my skin is a lot softer.  Not to mention this stuff smells really good!

That’s not all! Mederma, in conjunction with Empower MediaMarketing, has offered to send 2 of my readers a complete Mederma Stretch Mark Therapy (3 tubes each)!  All you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me your experience (or your lack thereof) with stretch marks.

For additional entries you can :

These entries are optional, and you will need to leave a separate comment for each.

Giveaway ends Monday, May 3rd.


Feeding A Crowd

by GettingFreedom on April 22, 2010

I’m really enjoying the How Moms Of Many Manage series from Smockity Frocks, Raising Olives, Life In a Shoe, and The Common Room. This week, the 4 moms are featuring recipes on feeding a crowd.

While I obviously do not feed a big group every evening as these ladies do (4 moms and 35 kids..you do the math. ;)), I love entertaining and being able to cook for other people. Hop on over to 4 Moms, 35 Kids and add your recipes for feeding a crowd.

Here are some of our favorites:

Easy Breakfast Casserole

Tri-Color Bread Braid

Easy Meatballs

Collossal Caramel Apple Trifle

Frugal Baked Beans

Taming Magazine Clutter

April 20, 2010

I truly believed that I didn’t have a problem with magazine clutter.  We really do not receive very many, and if you were to glance around my home–you would only find a few.  Last week construction began on our home and we are slowly beginning to pack up our rooms to make the remodeling part […]

April 19, 2010

We’ve survived a crazy week last week, and still managed to accomplish a lot of things.  I’ve really begun to attack our clutter even more than before.  I really had no idea I had such an issue with stashing back magazines.  Well over 50 magazines are GONE! Anyway, the craziness continues this week.  I’ve kept […]

Saving Money On Meat

April 15, 2010

Meat expenses can really kill a grocery budget.  When we first started analyzing our grocery expenses, meat was our number one expense.  I would be okay living off of salads and fresh fruits and vegetables, but my husband won’t have it.  Instead, we found some ways to still enjoy our meat, without breaking our grocery […]

Spring Cleaning: Hall Closet

April 7, 2010

Our Hall Closet is a problem area for us. I think one of the biggest problems is that I don’t really have a separate office space, so I find myself cramming my office stuff into the hall closet with everything else a hall closet holds.  Pair that with a husband who has a coat fetish […]
