PetSmart’s Partners in Pethood!

by Pennie on March 28, 2015

Great Deals

Not sure if you’ve caught PetSmart’s new commercials with Jennifer Coolidge and Anna Faris, but these are all a part of PetSmart’s “Partners in Pethood” campaign. The commercials definitely take a humorous approach to being a pet parent which I know you can certainly relate to! These were directed by Christopher Guest, best known from “Best in Show” and “The Princess Bride.”

The spots showcase different types of pet parents, including new owners, overprotective parents and overly-competitives ones. In one ad, Anna Faris hosts a birthday party for her dog Stanley, who she insists loves mountains, leans toward eastern religions and is an Aquarius because of his creativity and stubbornness.

The campaign also includes family-portrait-style images of real Petsmart consumers and employees with their pets that will be shared on all channels, as well as print ads. One ad that will run in People and Entertainment Weekly this spring features the brand’s mission statement printed on a poop bag.

Nicole’s take:  Chester and Cleo are 10.5 years old! My human babies are 14 months old.  So Chester and Cleo were definitely my first children and I’ve had a crazy and fun journey in pethood.  I hadn’t ever had a pet before and when I got Cleo I knew nothing! Then I thought she seemed lonely a few weeks later and decided to get Chester! Double puppy trouble! It was so hard to get them trained but we finally did it.  They are older now and struggling a little to adapt to their new huge (and loud!) family.  They still sleep with me at night and I love a little cuddle with them when I can.  Chester and Cleo have been with me through law school, relationships, break ups, moves, getting married, being on bedrest, having babies, etc.  Their love is truly unconditional and I hope they are as happy with me as I am with them!

Gorton’s Fishstick 2.0 and Giveaway!

by Pennie on March 26, 2015

gortonsv2_logo

The Gorton’s Crew has exciting news! We have reinvented our iconic Fish Stick, to create the Fish Stick 2.0.

gortons2.0

Our all new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks and Fillets are made from 100% Alaska Pollock and are never fried, so they have 50% less fat than Gorton’s regular breaded Fish Sticks and Fillets. And, thanks to a seasoned panko crumb, they have the same great taste and crunch you and your family have come to love from Gorton’s.

2015-03-22 09.29.05

All new Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks offer a mealtime solution that you can feel great about serving and your family will truly enjoy.

2015-03-22 11.13.36

We’re excited to spread the word to families across America, so we’re hitting the road on a sampling tour. Check out the #GortonsTour stops on our website, smartandcrunchy.com.

2015-03-22 10.46.13

Nicole’s take:  Abby and Zoe are eating so well now, Charlotte is still a little behind and eats mostly purees.  But Abby and Zoe eat EVERYTHING and so much of it! I am always trying to find healthy options for them that don’t break the bank and are easy for them to chew.  The Gorton’s Smart & Crunchy Fish Sticks fit the bill! I made them for lunch for Abby and Zoe recently and took a few tastes myself.  They were soft but also crunchy and they had a lot of flavor.  The fish was mild and not fishy at all.  I feel so good giving them to my babies.  They LOVED them and each ate 3 fish sticks – so much!

2015-03-22 11.08.24

Gorton’s Fish Stick 2.0 Prize Package:

  • two full-value product coupons
  • an adult-size apron

Water is a necessary resource for sustainable living, yet 748 million people lack access to clean water – the equivalent of nearly two and a half times the United States population. To address this crisis and to acknowledge water’s essential presence on the earth, the United Nations General Assembly declared March 22 as World Water Day in 1993.

umbrellaThe blue umbrella, sporting World Vision’s logo and a call to save lives with water, serves as a practical reminder that rainwater is considered a precious resource for people that lack established water systems.

From the World Vision Gift Catalog, the Royal Silk Scarf is made with luxurious silk, using Fair-Trade practices. The blend of soft colors emulates the purifying qualities of water and the vibrant life that it sustains.

wvscarf

Help where it’s needed most — AND receive a gift for yourself or someone you care about! With your gift of $95 or more to help where most needed — which provides for the unique needs of children and families worldwide — you will receive this lovely silk scarf. Vietnam’s Ma Chau villagers weave these traditional silky smooth scarves, helping to provide them with a sustainable income.

Approximate size: 68″”. Each is unique; size and color may vary slightly.

Please note your gift is tax-deductible, less the fair market value of $22.

Allow 7-10 days for delivery of handcrafted gifts.

 

Visit the World Vision Facebook page at /WorldVision and Twitter at @WorldVisionUSA using the hashtags #WaterEffect and #WaterNow. Take a look at World Vision’s YouTube channel and clean water video for an inside look at the impact of the water crisis in one girl’s life.

 

Nicole’s take:  World Vision is such a great concept and World Water Day is so important to learn about and celebrate.  The scarf and umbrella are both great items.  I love the bright colors and nice material of the scarf.  The umbrella is so useful as we approach rainy season in south Florida.  How will you celebrate World Water Day?

Here are some ways you can celebrate:

  • Take a Short Shower: Keep track of time spent showering as a reminder of the water shortage around the world. An American that takes only a five minute shower has already used more than an entire day’s worth of water for the average person in a developing country.
  • Walk or Run 6K: On World Water Day, thousands of people will walk or run 6 kilometers (3.72 miles) for children in Africa. Each registration brings clean water and fullness of life to communities in need one person at a time.
  • Give Clean Water: Help us get one step closer to providing reliable clean water sources around the world by visiting World Vision’s website to contribute to the Clean Water Fund, or make a monthly pledge. A total of $25 per month provides 6 more people with clean water every year.
