BJ's Wholesale Holiday Blogger Event

Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited to an informal meet and greet where BJ’s representatives gave me and some other blogger friends a tour of one of their clubs and introduced us to a selection of their holiday products.

I was eager to attend this event, as I am a regular shopper at this store.  (Please tell me it's not just me.  I can't help but giggle everytime I say "BJ's.")

Did  you know that BJ's (heh) carries everything you'd need to make your holiday planning less stressful ???(because we alllllllll know it's never stress-free)...From elegant decor to the season's hottest toys to a wide-assortment of top-quality food.  And all at great values!
 
I?  Did not know this.  So it's not just about the toilet paper and the ribs?! (Which are the 2 main staples I buy there. Seriously.)

Who knew?  400 SQUARE FEET of wrapping paper for $9.99!

The busy store manager graciously took time to speak to our group.

And at the end of our tour through the store, we were treated to a scrumptious array of holiday goodies.  Like red velvet cake.  And candies. 

And then I went back to work and took a nap under my desk.  The End.

Kidding. 

*****
In addition, BJ’s asked me to enlist my boyz to test out some of BJ's holiday toy offerings this year.  We were given the Discovery Kids Digital Photo/Video Camera (only $27.99 at BJ's - normally $40ish everywhere else!)

Can I just tell you that this is a perfect gift for a preschooler/kindergartener?  Baby has NOT put it down!  Everywhere I turn, he's snapping a picture. 
And yes, he's already dropped it a few times.  And it's fine.
Eldest, age 9, was not so impressed with the digital quality, as we have let him take pictures with my camera a few times.  So he's used to the clearer quality.  But, like I said, it's fabulous for younger children.
With its 16MB of internal memory storage, the camera is able to capture up to 120 still photos, plus full-motion video clips! The camera plugs into your computer via the USB cable (included), allowing kids to share their photos and video footage.
So, in summary,
Head to BJ's (*giggle giggle) for your one-stop-shopping needs this holiday season!  And yes, while you're there, pick up those bulk rolls of toilet paper too!

A Perfect Gift: Mrs. Prindable's Gourmet Apples

Did you know that Mrs. Prindable's is the premier provider of deliciously elegant gourmet food gifts?

And lucky me!

I got this in the mail:

The dark chocolate delight caramel apple!

In the interest of conducting this professional review *ahem*, I just want you to know that I had to hide this apple from my children.  So I could taste for myself, you see.

And yep, I ate the whole damn thing.

But not in one sitting.  That would be just ridiculous!

(It only took me 3 nights.)

Mrs. Prindables' unique specialty gifts make great gifts for any occasion - especially for that person who has everything!

Or, you know, you could buy one for yourself.

And chow down.
