This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of DollarGeneral. All opinions are 100% mine.
Its Vetrean's day and we should all be celebrating,
Too often American's forget about the men and women who are fighting for them.
Now wihie I support the effort to bring them home its still important to honor those people, even if we don't believe what they are fighting for, they are still fighting for our freedom and if it weren't for them , we would be in a much worse spot.
Iits also important to remember the families of those troops who are over here missing mommy or daddy. All in all those families truly sacrifice for the rest of us.
That being said I always think its great when a store offers a military discount to Military families and Veterans.
This year from November 11 Dollar Genera is offering a Veterans Day Discount!!
Dollar General will be an in store Discount for Veterans and Active Military Families of 10% off! No coupon needed!
And for the rest of us can also celebrate with the Dollar General's Veteran's Day discount every customer can get a 10% discount online! The deal lasts from November 11-November 13 2011 All you have to do is enter the code VETERANSDAY at checkout!

Head on over and check out the Dollar General's Veteran's Day discount
As always check out the Dollar General Facebook as well!
But I never thought of enjoying them later in life. Or of doing anything with them besides building farms for my Lego cows.
The Cult of Lego is not a group of nerds who worship the Lego King (although I'm not doubting that such a secret society probably exists)
Its a book by Joe Baichtal and Joe Menoabout the amazing things that people have done with Legos over the years. Projects which far exceed my barn and fences (they were darn nice though)
Everything from Lego Leagues to customized Lego figurines.
Lego Harpsichords and Lego Bible Scenes.
A Lego Costume!
Lego art and my personal favorite, Legos for Autism Therapy!
A fabulous book for any collection, but especially for the dad or granddad who is always enthusiastic about Legos. Maybe for the college student who hasn't quite given up on that box in the basement?
Whoever is the Lego lover in your life, this is a book to share with them, or just read for yourself. You'll find yourself constantly amazed at the masterpieces that people have created with the tiny blocks, as well as the communities that they have built while doing so!

This post brought to you by Schar. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you have recently discoverd an allergey or intollerance to gluten. i'm going to make an educated guesss that you miss the taste of warm crusty bread fresh from the oven.
Well now the people over at Schar Foods Euroe's leading Gluten-free food brand has re-launched thier sub sandwhich, ciabatta rolls and baugettes! Yes you read that correct thats three products, all bread related
Once you sign up , you'll see a colum titled 'tootbox' and under that will be a section that reads 'giveaways' simply click on that link, fill out the form and then wait for your free samples!
Schar club rolls are GMO-free, low fat and a great source of fiber. All you need to do is pull them from the freezer! They are heat and serve so you'll have warm crusty rolls, to go with your favorite diner. I love the idea of being able to have an acctual sandwich at lunch, and from the looks of these breads on the site, I don't think I would even miss the gluten variety!
I'm always confident in foods that come from Europe, the standards of food are quite high over there, i rarely find myself dissappointed when I spend the extra few dollars on european foods. And if there is one thing that I can say for Europe they know how to make some great bread.
Schar club seems like a great program for those who need to choose gluten-free foods. Which one of the gluten-free foods are you most excited to try? I'm excited about the Ciabatta rolls (mmm my fav) Let me know in the comments below which one you want to try!
And do yourself a favor and sign up for the free sample !

This post brought to you by Puppies vs. Babies. All opinions are 100% mine.
If you haven't yet heard about the Puppies vs. Babies on Animal Planet you are missing a pretty adorable show.
While I odn't watch it all too often, Annabella is in love with it. Puppies and babies are pretty much her two favorite things (well two of the other twenty things that she labels her 'favorites')
Well the people over at Puppies vs. Babies are having an online contest where one puppy or one baby will be the winner of $5,000! The entries for the Puppies vs. Babies online contest have been selected so now all you have to do is vote! I have my own opinion on the matter.
Personally I think babies are much cuter then puppies for these reasons.
If my baby eats her poop, at least she's eating her poop, not some random poop on the sidewalk
- If a baby looks like his parents its cute, if a puppy looks like his owners its weird.
- Lets be honest, baby clothes are adorable.
- First Words
- Puppy Food......yuck
- Babies vomit less
- Dogs smell
- Walking a puppY in the rain greatly reduces the cuteness factor
Who do you think is cuter? Puppies or babies? Leave a comment below and don't forget to vote in the Puppies vs. Babies online contest
