When Marley from CSNStores.com contacted me asking if I would like to work with them and host a giveaway I had already decided that I wanted to do something special for all of my readers who have been so encouraging, patient and sweet (a lot of whom I am blessed to call my friends) through my redesign absence. I knew I had found the perfect giveaway to start the new blog (well new blog design & new blog title anyway) out real proper like
If you haven't heard about CSN Stores by now then I would love to know where you've been and how I can get a ticket there on my next 'mommies day off' because CSN Stores are amazing and super hot right now. Since CSNStores.com is home to over 200 specialty stores, they have just about anything & everything that your heart could desire. If you've never heard of them then you're missing out big time!
Since it's getting warmer outside now and since it's about that time for us Mamas (you know, Spring Break time, which is followed closely by Summer Vacation time) I'm thinking about ways to keep both my sons entertained this Summer. What better way to keep two little boys entertained while the oldest one is out of school for the Summer then by outdoor activities and play equipment? There isn't a better way that I know of.
Since CSNStores.com does everything they do big, it's no surprise that their Outdoor Games & Play section is HUGE, and is home to some of the most amazing outdoor play equipment I've ever seen. My oldest was sitting at the computer with me when I was looking through it, and I'm pretty sure his head was about the explode from an 'I want that, Mommy, I want that!" overload! What really caught our attention was their extremely large selection of wood swing sets.
At CSNStores.com you can find a wood swing set to tickle the fancy of even the most fickle child, no matter whether they prefer a climbing wall or a picnick bench or monkey bars, I guarantee that they have whatever you and your little one want in a wood swing set. My son is now insisting that we need one, we're looking at the one pictured below, because it has everything Aiden wants in a swing set and Justin & I think it's pretty neat too!
