PBS KidsI'm serious... I LOVE free TV episodes on iTunes. Being honest I check at least once a week to see what free shows I can find. And this week I hit the MOTHERLOAD. We are big fans of PBS and the quality shows they have, so I was really excited to see some of our favorite shows for free this week. If you haven't heard about any of these show here is a little breakdown about them: Curious George teaches about math and science for a very young audience, Super Why is about the alphabet and reading, Sesame Street is a melting pot of different educational experiences and Mr Rogers' Neighborhood focuses on where we live and what is around us. Here are just a few of the episodes that I found this week:

Things I Love ThursdayCurious George: Curious George Flies A Kite/ From Scratch

Mr Rogers' Neighborhood: You And I Together: A Field Trip to Visit Koko the Gorilla

Sesame Street: Abby Cadabby's First Day of School, Baby Bear's First Day of School

Super Why: The Goose and the Golden Eggs


And I KNOW that Chuggington isn't a PBS show, but my boys LOVE Chuggington and were so excited that there was a free episode of Brewster's Little Helper and Jet Pack Wilson from season 2 avaiable.

I'm linking up over at The Diaper Diaries for Things I love Thursday.

Wilton Bake Even I've been taking Wilton Cake Decorating Classes at Michaels this month. My sweet hubby signed me up for them as a Christmas present. I've really been enjoying the classes and all the tips and techniques that I've been learning. Well, of all the things that I've had to buy for the class I am by far impressed the most with my Wilton Bake Even Strips. The pack comes with two strips that fit around a 8 or 9 inch pan and they can be both pinned together to fit a 9X13 pan also.

Simply put, the Wilton Bake Even Strips are shiny pieces of fabric that you soak in water then pin around the cake pan. As a cake bakes they typically cook faster closer to the edge, baking on the edges first and causing the cake to rise in the middle. The result is a cake with a bump in the center. It doesn't affect the taste but it does affect how it looks. With the Bake Even Strips you dip these strips in water, then strap them around the cake pan so that the baking temperature is more even and the cake bakes more evenly across the top. The result is a more even -bakery looking cake, so when you frost them they look much smoother and even. And that makes you feel like you are starting to become a better baker.

Cloud CakesTHIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED: Congrate to our winners: Jerry, Jeanette and Veronica.
YOU CAN VIEW OUR LIST OF GIVEAWAY WINNERS HERE.

I have a sweet little giveaway for you all. Little Debbie has come out with a new snack cake called Cloud Cakes which are golden sponge cakes with a vanilla creme-filling. It's kinda like a Twinkie.. but BETTER. I really liked that it's not as heavy and the creme isn't as thick but is lighter and airy. For those of you that are calorie conscious each cake is only 150 calories. I've actually been thinking about how I can make it more of a dessert instead of just a snack cake, I'm thinking maybe some sort of lemon glaze... mmmm. I would do a strawberry shortcake type treat but I'm allergic to strawberries, I know it's sad. I bet that C would like to have one of these packed in his lunchbox once in a while as a special treat.

You can buy Little Debbie Cloud Cakes nationwide for just $3.09 a box at mass merchandisers, supermarkets, dollar stores, variety stores, and convenience stores. 

So, here's our sweet giveaway, 3 lucky readers have a chance to win a Cloud Cake prize pack. Here's all that you need to do:

Just leave us a comment and tell us why you want to win a box of Cloud Cakes.

What's On?Today's hAppy Monday is brought to you by the letters T and V. My app this week is because I'm too cheap to buy the paper or cable. I never know what's on, or if my favorite shows are new that night or not. So I have What's On? to help me out. You can find out what’s on TV right now, when your favorite shows are on next and what’s playing in theaters! It makes it simple to find something to watch. You can also mark your favorite shows and movies and then see when What's Onand where they are playing, push notification reminders for your shows about to start, eve get the latest news on your favorite actors, TV shows, movies and more. I like that I can customize my channel list to only be channels we have, quickly browse what is one, then with one tap I get the details about the show. It's helpful too when we go to my Mother-in-law's house that I have her channels on my phone and check out what cartoon are on for the kids without having to go through every channel. Then I can switch back easily to the channels that we watch when we get back home. Because it's free there are ads but the convenience of the app far outweighs the ad annoyance to me.

Do you have a favorite app that you've found? Please let us know!

Lulee's LolliesCLOSED: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats to our winner Jonelle.
YOU CAN VIEW OUR LIST OF GIVEAWAY WINNERS HERE.

Have you heard about cake pops? They are the latest yummy craze, simple, cute and fun. It seems likes everyone wants in on the fun of cake pops. Even Starbucks is selling them now!

Well, I found a great local company, Lulee's Lollies that makes cake pops. I was so excited when they gave me a dozen for my birthday. They are the perfect dessert for me and my hubby after the kids are in bed, or when I just need a little treat during the day. I FOOLISHLY shared one of my Lollies with my boys the other day and now whenever I take one out they both think they need to "help me" eat it.  Understandably so though because each Lollie is a couple bites of soft, cakey goodness covered in milk or white chocolate coating. The cake inside is dark, moist and sweet while the smooth chocolate coating simply melts in your mouth. Plus they are so cute because they look like little lollipops on a stick and Lulee's Lollies even can create fun custom-made shapes. They individually wrap each Lollie so that they stay fresh and each Lollie can be kept on the counter for one week, in the fridge for 1 month and they can even be frozen for up to 4 months and saved later for a rainy day.

Lulee's Lollies

Lulee's Lollies are perfect party favors for birthday, baby showers, or even for weddings. A dozen Signature lollies are $18 and come in a variety of flavors including: carrot cake, butter pecan, red velvet, peanut butter chocolate, key lime and a few other flavors. Custom lollies are $30 for a dozen and can be made into custom designed shapes. You can check out a few of their Lollies on their site or Facebook page. Here's a tip for all of you.. during March they will be sending 25 people who have "liked" them on Facebook a free 4 Lollie Sample box. All you have to do is be the first 25 to respond when we post about it.

So, here comes the fun part for you foodies out there. Lulee's Lollies is generously offering a dozen of Signature lollies for one of our lucky readers. That's right! You can enjoy the yummy goodness of Lulee's Lollies just like I did.

GoodwillI love how I can head to almost any thrift store in the Dayton area and find something good. It might take a bit of work to find a real gem, but you NEVER know what you might find. I typically shop there to find stuff for my boys, they grow out of clothes so quickly when they are little and I can usually find clothes that is gently worn or even the latest toy that they are into we can find it slightly played with. Our Things I Love Thursday this week is a guest post by one of our readers-Amy Moller.  Amy and I both share a love of thrifting and she wanted to share one of her favorite locations with us.

Goodwill: 950 Centerville Miamisburg Rd.

Pros: Good selection of used computers and lots of clearance Target dollar section items. There is a decent selection of clothes, shoes, purses: I can find name brands (NY&CO., Express, Anne Klein, Polo, etc) in really good shape and not outdated, Nice men's/women/s dressing rooms (very private), very clean and organized. It is just down the street from a huge Salvation Army, and they also have medical scrubs, pants that appear to be new for about $8, and other new items that are possibly overstocked or out of season.

Things I Love ThursdayEvery Wednesday they offer 10% off to anyone 55 years and up

An interesting tidbit: 86 cents from every dollar goes to Goodwill Industries.

Cons: the selection of boys clothes isn't very big. If you're looking for women's clothes, this is a great store and even a fairly large selection for men. Also, they do not have much as far as electronics and furniture.

GrouponhAppy Monday folks I hope you all had a great weekend.

If you are always looking for great deals on local restaurants, salons and spas, and other businesses in the area then you need to be checking out Groupon. You can purchase their local daily deals online or you can download the Groupon app. The thing I like about the Groupon app is that not only can I buy Groupon's on it, but I can also use them off of it. I don't have to waste my time printing out the coupon, I can just show it to them on my phone and voila, it's done. Plus it helps keep track of all your purchased Groupons by location, date, and expiration. Daily Groupon's are available in over 160 cities currently, so if you have friend's or family in another city it's nice to check them out also for any good gift idea/deals. This app is also available for Android and BlackBerry devices plus phones with mobile web capabilities.

Want to know about Groupon? Be sure to read our previous post.
