JCPenney Slob To Suave Winner:

The winner of the JCPenney Slob to Suave giveaway is Nicole Schaub!
For an extra entry, Nicole also sent in before and after photos of her husband, Chad:
From Nicole's entry: "I know the "slob" photo isn't a whole body shot, but I don't think it get's much more slobby that wearing a FREE shirt you got from volunteering with the Boy Scouts, no gel in your hair, and blood running down your face because the gun you were shooting had a little more "kick" to it than you thought it did and nailed you in the face. And... It doesn't get more suave than looking handsome with your boys."
We had a lot of entries, so thanks to all of you that participated! A few of you also sent in Slob to Suave photos of your husbands, so at their expense, I wanted to share a few that made me giggle. Thanks ladies, and thank your husbands for being good sports!

Last night my husband and I went to JCPenney to spend our $100 gift card to change him from Slob to Suave.
DC is NOT a fancy schmancy guy. If it fits, he wears it. One part of his wardrobe that needed some help was his church clothes. He definately was in need of some new dress pants, a new church belt, a new white shirt and a tie that wouldn't fall apart after it was worn twice. So, that is part of what we got him last night at JCPenney.

Here was the break down of what we got for our $100:
Green Sriped tie Reg price: $36 Sale: $11.99 **

Another Giveaway: Flip Ultra Camera (RV $150)

Our newest giveaway:
flip ultra camera
This sleek Flip Ultra 230 model camera which takes up to 30 minutes of video! These are great for family videos to upload online for Youtube, Facebook, Blogger etc!
Plus, it has a RV of $150!
This camera takes GREAT QUALITY videos and is also very easy to use!
Read below to learn how you can enter to win it as well as get involved in another great contest from and Lever 2000!

Merrek Emma Jason

Meet Merrek, Emmie & Jason Storm. These are my kids. I ♥ my kids. I love being their mom. I ♥ to LOVE on my kids and I taking photos and videos of them. (I know, that's a whole lot of love)
That's where this giveaway comes in:

A recent study that shows that parents are showing more affection to their kids than their parents showed them, and dads are especially more affectionate towards their children today than in previous generations.

Lever 2000 did a "Make Every Touch Count" survey which showed that families today are feeling increased stress and anxiety due to the economy, however, 81% of parents who report feeling increased stress also say that the weakened economy has made their family closer. More than four in five dads (84%) surveyed show their kids more physical affection – like hugs – than their parents did with them (vs. 78% of moms). Parents report hugging and kissing their kids, on average, six times a day.

The benefits of touch to the family include: strengthening family bonds (83%); providing comfort (77%) and reassurance (75%); and helping them reduce stress (57%), according to parents surveyed.

On top of our great camera giveaway, Lever 2000 is also inviting families to share photos of their favorite family moments that showcase how their family embraces the power of touch for a chance to win great prizes. You must participate in order to be eligible for our giveaway. It's quick and easy, I promise!

So on top of entering our camera giveaway, you will also be entering to win their giveaway! (The winners get a professional photo shoot and will be featured in a Lever 2000 advertisement, among other prizes.) In addition, each submission helps Lever 2000 support the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, which provides safe places and positive programs for kids and helps them develop close personal bonds.

How to enter OUR giveaway:
1. For your first entry (required), go to and upload a photo. Your photo must feature 2 or more of your family members engaging in a "touching moment". It can be active, fun, positive etc. When you do, save your "Make Every Touch Count" photo page link and share it with us by leave a comment with your first and last name (along with your email address) and the photo link. That's your first entry. I uploaded one as an example. I'll have to add a "good one" later and jack you all with my kids' cuteness. Just kidding. But for examples sake:
Example: Jane Doe (

Bonus Entries:
2. For a second entry leave a new comment telling us your first and last name and one thing you do that makes you a great Mom, Aunt, Grandma, Dad etc. Come on, share it with the world! If you're awesome and you know it clap your hands! (clap, clap!)
Example: Jane Doe: I'm pretty much the best mom ever because I torture my girls with those insanely over sized and yet absolutely adorable flower headbands. They'll thank me some day.

Or, you could just say something like: I'm a great dad because I finally remember all of my kids names instead of assigning them numbers. (I have 5 siblings, I know this happens)

Your choice. I'm flexible. Really.

A brother? Maybe your uncle?

Well, you're in luck! Father's Day is just around the corner and one of you lucky readers has a chance to win our Father’s Day ‘Slob to Suave’ Contest, sponsored by JCPenney!

The winner will receive a $100 gift certificate to JCPenney to use on the special man in your life.

Leave a seperate comment letting us know that you sent us the pics. (You can submit your pictures anytime NOW through Wednesday, June 17th) (**Please note, your photos might be posted on the blog so that all of us lady readers can point and laugh at how slob-ish your husband is, and then ooh and aah at how well he cleans up!**)
