Indulgence for you, entertainment for them

I’ve put together another little keep-the-kids-busy-and-do-a-little-something-for-you prize pack, this week.

Thanks to the folks at Big Idea, I have a copy of their latest VeggieTales DVD, Princess and the Popstar. And thanks to the nice folks at Horizon, I also have a little celebrate back-to-school pack for Mom that includes a few products from Bath & Body Works and some yummy Dove chocolates. (Lest you think I’m just incredibly magnanimous, I must confess that Horizon sent two of these kits, so I got one to keep for myself. Because I love you, but I also love chocolate.)

Whether you’ve started school again yet or not, whether you ship ’em off on the bus or homeschool, whatever you do, chocolate and bubble bath and animated vegetables can’t be wrong. You can quote me on that.

So. Want to win? Of course you do! First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, August 25th for an entry. I’ll choose a winner via random number generation and try not to sneak any of your chocolate in the meantime. Ahem.

Ready? Go!
