Back to School Giveaway

Back to School Giveway #Hotdots #Sharpie #Expo

Back to school time is always a little bittersweet for me. For most of the year, I’m an empty nester. I do have the grand kids during their summer break and all other school breaks but the remainder of the time it’s just me and Peanut. So I don’t look as forward to school starting back as they do. I’m happy for the kids though because this is the time of year they’re always excited about seeing their friends again and even meeting new friends. I love watching them grow and learn and having a good education is really important to me and their parents.

Back to school time comes with costs though. Even for parents of only one child, it can become costly. Even though the kids get a list of school supplies there’s always extra little things they want but don’t necessarily need and that’s why Kathy from Reviews by Kathy got together a little goody package to give away. She was sweet enough to invite me and a couple of other bloggers to join in so our readers have a chance to win the giveaway as well. Below are the goodies she’s giving away.  There’s $40.00 worth of goods in this giveaway.

Also participating are  Hannah @ Beachy Lady and The Review Wire.

Good luck and if you have the chance to go by and thank Kathy, please do.  US 18+ to enter.
