Free Yummy Treats at our Family Favorite Restaurant ~ Review & Giveaway on Mom Loves 2 Read

http://www.culvers.com/assets/images/img-logo.png

ABOUT CULVER'S
 
In 1984 Craig and Lea Culver, along with Craig’s parents George and Ruth, opened the very first Culver’s in the family’s beloved hometown of Sauk City, Wisconsin.

George Culver, who's father was a cheesemaker and grandfather was a farmer, spent the early part of his career inspecting and grading dairy farms. While he was out calling on area dairy farms, his wife Ruth Culver was home joyfully raising their three children, instilling in them the small-town, Midwest values she herself had come to know.

In 1961, George and Ruth bought their first restaurant. With their kids growing up serving guests and learning firsthand about hospitality and delicious food cooked to order, the Culver family’s team approach became the model of many successful restaurants and supper clubs to come.  To read the rest of this wonderful story click here.

My family's favorite hometown restaurant is Culver's with a wonderful family friendly atmosphere and special kids and family nights, it makes a great place for the whole family to eat delicious food and amazing deserts at affordable prices.  When offered the opportunity to promote Culver's Thank You Farmer's tribute, I jumped at the chance.  And now, I have a Yummy Review and Giveaway to share with you as well.

I happen to live in a somewhat "small" town, not too far from a pretty "big" city.  This small town happens to be known as the Pumpkin Capital.  With a large Nestle factory right downtown, and huge semi trailers full of pumpkins travelling through every fall, it is not hard to imagine that our town yearly festival is called the "Morton Pumpkin Festival."  In honor of this fun event each year, our town often has Pumpkin Ice Cream, Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Doughnuts, Pumpkin Chilli and a whole variety of other Pumpkin goodies.

I tried the Pumpkin Pie Concrete mixer, and all I can say is YUMMY!  Then, of course (not the same night thankfully) I had to go back and try another flavor . . . Oreo!  It was my husband's choice since I thought it would be nice of me to share with him.  For the photo though, I had to bribe my son with a few bites - lol   The Culver's website also has a link where you can see the flavor of the day in your local restaurant, AND see all the current Concrete mixer flavors that they have . . . I have a list started of which flavors I want to try next, and next after that, and after that . . .

In honor of our love of sweet yummy cold treats, delicious burgers on buttery buns, fries, onion rings and not having to cook or clean up . . .  here is a fun giveaway!  

3 different people who enter this giveaway 
will each receive a coupon for one FREE Concrete Mixer from Culver's.
Since I will personally be mailing out these fun coupons, this giveaway is 

Open to US residents ages 13 and older 
(must have a parent's permission to enter and to complete entries on the giveaway form.)

FLASH GIVEAWAY & Review ~ Halloween Fun in the Dark with Costumes that Glow ~ #lightsuits


Get lit! Glow in the dark costumes are awesome!  Great for Halloween Parties, Birthday parties, sleepovers and so much more!  You just literally put on the black jumpsuit, peel the tape off and stick the glow lights on the jumpsuit in whatever design or pattern you want. Then just turn the lights out and watch your creation come to life.  These suits conform to pretty standard sizing for both adults and children with a little bit of extra room to be loose and then a little bit more to allow the user to wear a coat underneath.

Grace Unplugged & Own It ~ Reviews & Giveaway on Mom Loves 2 Read

About Grace Unplugged the Novel
 Grace Trey is an 18 year old singer as passionate about her Christian faith as she is her phenomenal, God-given musical talent. Both traits come from her father, one hit wonder Johnny Trey who found Jesus after losing his chart success two decades ago.

When Grace encounters her own music break of a lifetime, the sudden dive into the "real world" puts her deeper beliefs to the test. Pop superstardom is just within reach but appears to require some spiritual compromise. Will Grace reject her faith, or will she own it?

Grace Unplugged is based on the motion picture of the same name starring AJ Michalka (Super 8) and Kevin Pollak (A Few Good Men) with performances by award-winning artists Chris Tomlin and Jamie Grace.

When her friend vanishes from a cruise ship, reporter Darcy St. James isn't satisfied with their explanation that she simply left her job of her own accord.

Within days, Darcy learns her friend wasn't the only person to disappear mysteriously.

ABOUT THE BOOK

Miranda Woodruff has it all. At least, that's how it looks when she's starring in her homebuilding television show, From the Ground Up. So when her network begins to talk about making cuts, she'll do anything to boost ratings and save her show--even if it means pretending to be married to a man who's definitely not the fiance who ran out on her three years ago.

When a handsome reporter starts shadowing Miranda's every move, all his digging into her personal life brings him a little too close to the truth--and to her. Can the girl whose entire identity is wrapped up in her on-screen persona finally find the nerve to set the record straight? And if she does, will the life she's built come crashing down just as she's found a love to last?

Sandra D. Bricker


ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

For more than a decade, Sandra D. Bricker lived in Los Angeles. While honing her chosen craft of screenwriting in every spare moment, she worked as a personal assistant and publicist to some of daytime television's hottest stars. When her mother became ill in Florida, she walked away from that segment of her life and moved across the country to take on a new role: Caregiver.

The Big 5-OH! was released by Abingdon Press in the Spring of 2010, and the novel was very well-received, garnering a couple of nibbles from Hollywood.

Always the Baker, Never the Bride was released by Abingdon Press in September 2010. With its phenomenal reviews, the novel spawned a series of three more books based on the popular cast of characters at The Tanglewood Inn, a wedding destination hotel in historic Roswell, Georgia. The series cemented Sandie's spot in publishing as a flagship author of Laugh-Out-Loud romantic comedy for the inspirational market.

Just a Drop was featured on The Dr. Oz Show (Dr. Oz is a regular user of the product) as well as The Doctors TV Show.

Fired Up by Mary Connealy ~ another amazing adventure from a talented author ~ Review on Mom Loves 2 Read

Fired Up   by  Mary Connealy

ABOUT THE BOOK

Rollicking Wild West Adventure and Romance from Bestselling Author Mary Connealy.

Dare Riker is a doctor who saves lives, but someone seems determined to end his. It may have something to do with the traitors he dealt with during the Civil War, or it might be related to the recent incident with Flint Greer and the ranch. Whoever the culprit is, he or she seems really fired up, and Dare can't let his guard down for a moment, which is a challenge, since right now he's trying to win the heart of the recently widowed Glynna.
Glynna Greer came west as a mail-order bride and ended up in a bad situation. Now her husband, Flint, is dead, and she's determined to care for her son and daughter on her own. She wants to believe Dare Riker is as decent as he seems, but she's terrified to lock herself into another marriage. She plans to support her small family by opening a diner--never mind that cooking is not her greatest talent. The men in Broken Wheel, Texas, are so desperate for home cooking that they seem willing to overlook dried-out beef and blackened biscuits.
Glynna can't help but notice that danger follows Dare wherever he goes. There's the avalanche. And then the fire. But things really get out of hand when someone plunges a knife from Glynna's diner into Dare's back. Are Flint's cronies still plotting revenge? Is Glynna's son engaged in a misguided attempt to protect his mother? Is a shadowy outsider still enraged over past injustices? And can Dare survive long enough to convince Glynna to take another chance on love?

Born of Persuasion by Jessica Dotta ~ Book Spotlight on Mom Loves 2 Read

ABOUT THE BOOK

The year is 1838, and seventeen-year-old Julia Elliston’s position has never been more fragile. Orphaned and unmarried in a time when women are legal property of their fathers, husbands, and guardians, she finds herself at the mercy of an anonymous guardian who plans to establish her as a servant in far-off Scotland.

With two months to devise a better plan, Julia’s first choice to marry her childhood sweetheart is denied. But when a titled dowager offers to introduce Julia into society, a realm of possibilities opens. However, treachery and deception are as much a part of Victorian society as titles and decorum, and Julia quickly discovers her present is deeply entangled with her mother’s mysterious past. Before she knows what’s happening, Julia finds herself a pawn in a deadly game between two of the country’s most powerful men. With no laws to protect her, she must unravel the secrets on her own. But sometimes truth is elusive and knowledge is deadly.

River North; New Edition edition (September 1, 2013)
by
Anita Lustrea   and  Caryn Rivendara

ABOUT THE BOOK

It's 1954 and the world-even the far Northwoods of Maine-is about to change. But that change can't happen soon enough for fourteen-year-old Mercy Millar. Long tired of being the "son" her father never had, Mercy's ready for the world to embrace her as the young woman she is-as well as embrace the forbidden love she feels. When childhood playmates grow up and fall in love, the whole community celebrates. But in the case of Mercy and Mick, there would be no celebration. Instead their relationship must stay hidden. Good girls do not date young men from the Maliseet tribe. At least, not in Watsonville, Maine. When racial tensions escalate and Mick is thrown in jail under suspicion of murder, Mercy nearly loses all hope-in love, in her father, and in God himself.
