BIG Giveaway!


Black Friday is almost here and we are ready to open the Holiday Season with some fabulous goodies!!! We’ve partnered with Madsen Cycles and 11 of our favorite blogging friends on INSTAGRAM to bring you an AMAZING giveaway- take a look at this:



We really want you to have a blast this Holiday Season and The Madsen Bikes are the perfect way to ENJOY THE RIDE!

The MADSEN Bike was designed around the idea that a bicycle can do more!

Its rear cargo bucket has two removable bench seats, each with two lap belts, thus potentially carrying up to four children–or two kids with groceries, scooters, soccer balls, beach gear, etc. etc. etc.

The possibilities are endless!

The weight limit is 600 pounds (271 kg) for rider plus cargo. Kids love the bike because they are within talking distance of mom or dad and can see the world zoom around them, as if they were the ones driving the bicycle. Parents love the bike because they can ditch the car, actively enjoy the outdoors and keep the kids happy all at the same time! The MADSEN design is sleek and beautiful, with great color choices and optional front rack that looks awesome and is very handy.

  1. I have been interested in doing more freezer meals. This would definitely give me the space to try some out! Thank you!

  2. I’ve been toying around the idea of a second freezer :) this excites me!

  3. We currently have two fridges and a deep freezer but the 2nd fridge came with our house and is falling apart and leaking everywhere which has caused us to have to put the money we were going to use to replace the fridge toward replacing the flooring in the kitchen. We have lots of kids and all of their friends are always over.. and we host a lot of their sports teams at our home so always need food and it would be great to spend Sundays after watching all the kids sports games, preparing meals for the week and being able to freeze them!

    Winning the Madsen Bike would help me out regaining my strength in my lower limbs as I have Multiple Sclerosis.
    Winning the Amazon gift card would help me restock my pantry for the upcoming winter months.
