About two years ago, I won a years worth of Cold Stone Creamery in the form of a $240 gift card at an event at the Chicago Toy & Game Fair. I was so happy to win the gift card because I LOVE ice cream (who doesn’t?), but I had just had a baby and was trying to LOSE weight! Lucky for us, it was during the winter, too cold to be going out for ice cream all of the time. We moved a few months later, so we didn’t have a Cold Stone Creamery close enough to go to all the time.
So, how long did it take us to spend $240 at Cold Stone Creamery? 1 year and 10 months! We just spent the last of it on our daughter’s birthday cake. I think we used the gift card on 6 ice cream cakes (all Strawberry Passion because it’s the yummiest ice cream cake EVER) and lots of Mud Pie Mojos, my favorite!
By the way, the Chicago Toy & Game Fair is November 17th and 18th this year at Navy Pier. We’ve had the pleasure of going the past 2 years, and it’s always a lot of fun! I’m really excited for this year now that Lia is old enough to enjoy it

Saveology is a great daily deal site offering up to 90% off on products and services! I especially love them because working full-time, it’s sometimes difficult to take advantage of a lot of deals offered by daily deal sites since most of them only last for one day. Saveology often has deals that last a few days, which makes it easier to get the deal in time!
If you’re new to Saveology, head over there NOW to get a $10 Ben & Jerry’s Gift Card for just $5! Make sure you hurry though because this deal is only available through TODAY, December 15th, or while supplies last, and I have a feeling that this will go quickly!
The holidays are here, so make sure to check out the other gift ideas on My Joy My World!

Don’t all of these treats sound YUMMY?
Unilever (Breyers®, Popsicle®, Klondike®) provided me with free product coupons to try some of their ice cream offerings. We tried the Breyers® Blasts!™ REESE’S® Peanut Butter Cups, Popsicle® Jolly Rancher® Awesome Twosome, and Klondike® What the Fudge? Brownie Ice Cream Sandwich, and we loved them all! We’re suckers for sweets and ice cream in this household, and they all taste the way their name sounds like they’re going to taste, so we really had no complaints. Popsicle® may still need to work on their joke-writing though
