A Giveaway!

As promised, I have something to give away!!!

When I was shopping for bowls and spoons for LBG, I came across a really cool company called Dandelion.  It's a company that has eco-friendly items for baby.  This is how super cool they are... they have all types of tableware made from corn!

As I've mentioned before, we are attempting to avoid BPA as well as plastic in our kitchen.  Bowls and spoons that aren't made from plastic or metal= Perfection!  Amazon made a few bucks off me as I ordered 2 bowls and 6 infant spoons.

At first glance, they look just like yellow plastic.  I don't know what I was expecting them to look like in person, but I was in love.  Everything is super light weight and the spoons were small enough for LBG's tiny mouth.  The spoons have a handle on the long side which is fun because LBG likes to help feed himself on occassion.  The bowls have these cool tabs on the side that make them easy to hold.

There is one drawback if you could even call it that.  They are handwash only and not exactly microwave safe.  I have lots of handwashables so it isn't a big deal for me.  I quickly found out why they aren't recommended for the dishwasher and microwave while washing dishes last night.  The super hot water (it was steaming) actually softened the bowls.  Not melting soft, but soft enough that I could feel it change shape when I pushed my finger into the bottom.  As soon as they cooled off, all was well again!  I wouldn't put piping hot soup in the bowl, but a few freshly steamed green beans aren't going to hurt.

Now, onto the good stuff!  Since I love all my readers, I have something fun for you!

I have a beautiful package for two bowls and a set of 8 utensils!  That's 2 bowls, 4 forks, and 4 spoons!

Alrighty here is how to win!
Please leave a comment for each task and I'll be drawing using random.org on Sunday, March 21!

Good Luck, dearest readers!

Oh yes, can't forget the fine print!  I'm not cool enough to have companies provide me with items to review... not yet at least, so no one has provided me with these products or asked me to do a review.  I purchased them with my own hard earned cash.

To be more eco friendly, I have started doing all of my laundry on the same day so the dryer is already warm. Does that count?

We have also been using 1 car as much as possible.
