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.


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.
