*HOT* Stride Rite B1G1 50% Off Sale PLUS a Giveaway! Free Shoes!

It’s no secret that we love Stride Rite shoes around here. They are well made, stylish and I always make sure I purchase them on sale and/or with a coupon!

What’s not to love?

Check out some of these amazing styles they have right now for as low as $9.95:

My daughter needed sneakers badly. When we were back to school shopping, she only picked out “fashion” shoes (her words!) and no sneakers! Well, she quickly grew out of her sneakers from last year so we needed to get her a new pair.

Stride Rite contacted me and offered to send a pair for us to try out. I was a bit concerned, because Lizzie is at that age where a lot of clothing/shoes/etc “bodder” her (bother, LOL). So ordering online (as opposed to going in the store to try them on) made me a bit unsure! However, I shouldn’t have worried for a second. Stride Rite shoes are always comfy and well fit!

Not only did we get shoes she now LOVES (she wore them with her Thanksgiving dress on Thursday! She’s never worn sneakers with a dress!) but they don’t bother her at all.

Look how cute these are?

These are the RacerLights (click here) and they are so fun! They light up when she runs/walks.

Now my son wants some too!

Does your child want a pair of Stride Rite shoes?

Be sure to check out their great sale going on right now, but Stride Rite has also graciously offered a FREE pair or shoes for one lucky reader!

Here’s how this will work: 

Head on over to Stride Rite and tell me what pair of shoes your kiddo would love (by commenting below this post)!

Then fill out this Rafflecopter form below to complete your entry (if you are reading this in an email/feed reader, you might need to come directly to the blog):

Enter to Win FREE Admission to Wings Over Houston: A Family Friendly Event

Image used by permission. All Rights Reserved

For the past 18 years, I have lived within spitting distance (well…just about) of Ellington Field in Houston Texas.

I can still remember the first day I learned about the very popular annual air show (Wings Over Houston).

I was out shopping with my aunt at one of the nearby outdoor shopping centers when all of a sudden I heard a buzz of activity in the sky.

I looked up and was shocked and amazed to see TONS of airplanes in the sky above my head.

Not just any airplanes…military planes.

I’ll admit…I was terrified! I thought we were at war!

My aunt explained it was just the air show, and watching the air show from afar has just become a fact of my life every year!

This year will be the first year we take our children to the air show “properly” (we’ve always just gone to a nearby playground to watch, but I KNOW we definitely weren’t getting the full effect of how awesome it is from there!). I am SO excited!

This year the Wings Over Houston airshow is on October 26-27th.

I’ve been looking up the schedule, pictures and videos from the airshow and I know my kiddos will have a blast.

Here are some of the things I’m most looking forward to:

You can keep up with Wings Over Houston on Twitter and Facebook!

Subway Kids Meals Are A Great Healthy Meal! Win a $40 Subway Gift Card #EatFresh #KidsMeals

*****************THIS giveaway is closed******************************

Winner info: Eileen e*********

Did you know that out of all the chain restaurants evaluated by the Center for Science in the Public Interest (CSPI) there is only ONE restaurant and menu that fulfilled the criteria for nutritious kids’ meals?

The FRESH FITTM for KIDS menu from Subway!

This was an investigation into the top 50 restaurants and Subway came out on top!

Here is some more information gleaned from the study:

  • CSPI found that fried chicken fingers, burgers and French fries continue to dominate the kids’ meals landscape, with 97 percent of the nearly 3,500 meal possibilities not meeting CSPI’s nutrition criteria.
  • All of SUBWAY® restaurant’s eight children’s meals, which include a 4” sub, apple slices and low-fat milk or bottled water, amount to less than 430 calories, less than 35% fat, 0 % trans fat, 35% added sugars and 770 mg of sodium, and meet both the expert and industry nutrition standards (CSPI’s and the National Restaurant Association’s Kids LiveWell Nutrition Standards).
  • SUBWAY FRESH FIT FOR KIDS™ meals have been approved by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), with whomSUBWAY® restaurants has partnered to help fight childhood obesity.

Recently we headed over to Subway to have a great family meal. Both of our children ordered a SUBWAY FRESH FIT FOR KIDSTM meal and they loved it! 

It’s a great place for a quick family dinner.

Do you want to win a gift certificate to Subway?

Subway has offered to  send a $40 SUBWAY card to one Family Friendly Frugality reader! Use it to enjoy a FRESH FITTM meal of your choice at a local SUBWAY restaurant with your family.

To enter, comment on this post and let me know what your favorite sandwich is to purchase at Subway. If you order for your kids at Subway as well, tell me their favorites too!

You can also earn an extra entry (make another comment) by subscribing to the FFF email (make sure you confirm your subscription!).

This giveaway will end on 5/1/13 at 11:59 PM CST.

Arielle’s Den Review and Giveaway: Win 3 Beautiful Hair Clips

I started putting bows and hair ties in my daughter’s hair from the minute she had enough hair to make a tiny little antennae ponytail!

Lizzie LOVES wearing bows and hair ties now, and I really think it’s because we started so early.

We love ’em all.

Big bows, small bows, crazy bows, tiny barrettes, etc.

We’ve never tried bows quite like these though! I think we’re sold!

Arielle’s Den makes adorable boutique hair bows, clips and headbands and we were lucky enough to score a few to review!

First off, we have the lovely Aurora! I just love how crafty people can get with ribbon. I always joke that I could sew a gorgeous gown with lace and elaborate buttons, but ask me to make a simple bow and I hot glue the ribbon to my forehead.

This bow is just so pretty! It’s on an easy to use clip and it looks great in Lizzie’s hair.

Next up we have probably Lizzie’s favorite princess right now…Rapunzel!

I love how the long hair isn’t just left flowing (I’d be nervous about the ribbon fraying!). It’s such a pretty little clip and it’s very clear it’s Rapunzel!

The three rosette clip is just precious. The clip is actually fairly small, so your little girl does not need a ton of hair to hold it in place. I like that it’s something a bit different from our usual big ol’ Texas bows. It’s very pretty and makes a big statement!

You can check out Arielle’s Den on Facebook. Barb creates Hair Bows, Fabric Headbands, Bottle Caps and Custom Created Hair Clips and Photography Props! She posts already finished designs that you can message her to claim or she also makes custom designs.

Contact her today!
