Win 4 Monster Jam Tickets!

Disclosure: We received free tickets to this event and free tickets for one lucky winner. 
This does not sway my opinion nor change my voice. 

Have you ever attended Monster Jam?

We have!
And it is an awesome, entertaining, family/community bonding experience.
"Bonding experience? "

It is the most fun, bonding, community feel event we've ever been to.
You're squishing onto bleachers with strangers, there's cheering, booing, snacking...
It's just an all-around good time.

Not only are we attending this year but I've Partnered with Monster Jam to giveaway 4 tickets to one lucky winner!

Because we attended last year, I already had photos I could have posted in this blog post and carried on about my day.

BUT, because I am a procrastinating perfectionist and felt like I needed to show you all the monster truck toys Elliott accumulated after seeing Monster Jam last year... I snapped some fresh pics with both the kids.

See both new and old photos below and scroll to the end to enter the giveaway!

Noelle's face, lol.
She was perfectly happy but I think the sun was in her eyes.

Monster Jam 2017 ^

The 2017 show was in late May so it was a bit chilly and I was still expecting with Noelle. I swear she must have known what was going on from within the womb because let me tell you, this show is LOUD.

I thought my friend Heidi did an amazing job of rounding up what you need to know about MJ, in her blog post she goes into detail AND she is giving away 4 tickets as well!

So please go read her post here, click here! for some additional info but as far as what I know from last year, you WILL need ear protection (we were sooo naive last year and a kind couple behind us gave these ear plugs to Elliott before we went to buy him some because we naively did not bring any) and this may not be as big of an issue this year because the show is in July but a sweater comes in handy (bleachers = cold butt!).

My sweet little almost 3 year old! ^

The show is fun for all ages and this year is looking like a good one:

Monster Jam, the most action-packed live event on four wheels where world-class drivers compete in front of capacity crowds in racing, 2 wheel skills challenge and freestyle competitions, is coming to Scotia Speedworld for two HUGE shows from July 7 to July 8.

The 4 tickets I have to giveaway are for the show on Sunday, July 8th, 2018 at 1pm
The event is held at Scotia Speed World, 150 Sky Blvd Halifax NS B3B 1L3
(Tickets will be made available for pickup at Box Office on show day)

The contest closes Thursday, July 5th, 2018, 12 AM 
One winner will be contacted and if no reply is received within 24 hours, we will move onto another winner chosen at random

Thank you so much for entering, now good luck and see you at Monster Jam 2018!!

For the dad who has it all, Father’s Day for under $20 - Plus a giveaway!

What do you get Dad/hubby?
I have no freaking clue!
I don't really like shopping for either because well, it's not that they're picky...
it's the opposite!

They're so un-fussy they arent really impressed with anything! lol

Not to mention my dads birthday falls RIGHT ON or next to Fathers Day every single year.
How do calendars work??
Shouldn't his birthday be rotating??
Why does it seem to line up every. freaking. year!
Well, that's what gift cards are for! 

A safe bet for Nick is clothing, even though he desperately wants the Super Nintendo revival... Yeah he really, really wants it and I feel bad but I cannot take the kids to the store at 5 am and push people out of the way for a Nintendo he will probably play once a year.

Look, if they make them more readily available (preferably online orders!) I will be ALL OVER it but until then... sorry Nicky Bear.

 Not a Super Nintendo but equally as cute, we did get him this Old Navy Super dad T.
Which sadly I cannot find in stock but I do see some super cute Daddy and me options -Linked here! clicking click! non spon just cute!

Then I stopped by Walmart and picked up these cards for Nick (above) and my Dad (below)

Then came the simplest but if I may say, CUTEST idea ever!
A little SuperDAD hand and footprint DIY.
I have so much scrapbooking supplies this cost me $0.
I just popped it into an old frame and voila!

So what do you normally do for Father's Day??
Nick does so much for all of the 'mom' holidays and I do feel a little guilty that I'm never able to return the gesture but seriously, what do you get for the guy who says he doesn't need anything?!?

If you let me know down below >>>>>>>>
You will be entered to win this super cool 'Man's Stuff' Man Can!
Supplied by Farley Co

All you have to do is enter as many ways as you please, below >

This contest is only open to my Canadian friends as per shipping restrictions.
Quick closing on June 17th, 2018 so you can surprise 'dad' with the good news!
