Posted on: June 6th, 2014 by Kate Hamernik

Who has a LEGO fan in their house?  You do?  Here is an awesome deal from Zulily! LEGO on sale at zulily My son cannot get enough LEGO in his life, but it can be pricey!  I do like checking this sale out to save money.  Remember LEGO pieces last forever (my son is still playing with my brother’s old LEGO bricks!), so they are a worthy investment!

4 tickets to LEGOLAND Ca : Giveaway

Posted on: October 15th, 2013 by Kate Hamernik
This is our LAST giveaway for Brick or Treat at LEGOLAND California!   One lucky winner will get four tickets to enjoy a full day at LEGOLAND California!   We are so thankful to LEGOLAND Ca for sponsoring this awesome, festive, and family friendly giveaway!
lego costume
Our family attended Brick or Treat this past weekend and we had an AWESOME time!   We always have a great time at Brick or Treat,   but this time was especially awesome!   Mr. Deals & Steals made Brother S a LEGO Thor costume!   S is really getting into LEGO sets this year and he is super excited about Thor coming to theaters in November so LEGO Thor was a natural choice (we will have a tutorial about how we made this coming soon on Catching Up With Kate btw) – he was super excited to win 2nd place in his category (LEGO themed of course!) – you should have seen the LEGO Iron Man that won first – it was insane – like coolest costume I have ever seen in my life insane!   We prepped our kids with ‘this is just for fun, don’t be sad if you don’t win’ – which I think is REALLY important, there are lots of awesome costumes and I think it was just a fun time for our big kids to stand up on stage and wave, the winning was just a bonus (an awesome bonus!)
LEGO themed costumes
The ‘Vampire’ that hosts the costume contest is not too spooky and even my kids who scare easily were cracking up at his funny jokes.   Check out more information about the LEGOLAND Costume Contest and see if you might want to enter – it is fun and quick and it of course is just part of the fun at Brick or Treat party nights on Saturdays!
We LOVE that LEGOLAND California spoils our readers during October!   If you have a young family and haven’t checked out Brick or Treat Party Nights at The LEGOLAND Resort it is really a splurge worthy treat.   Tickets for Party Nights start at $30 making it one of the least expensive theme park trick or treat options.   If your family has a year pass you can enjoy Brick or Treat at NO additional cost.   You can read more about all the awesome LEGOLAND Brick or Treat activities, fireworks, and shows in our previous article.   Brick or Treat party nights are held on Saturday nights in October.   You can enjoy the Brick or Treat trail on Saturdays & Sundays!

OK back to our giveaway!   ONE lucky San Diego Deals and Steals fan is gonna win FOUR tickets to Brick or Treat for 2013! Tickets will be emailed to the winner to the email address given directly from LEGOLAND.   Your email is only used if you are the winner no sharing of emails in any way, I promise!   Super easy peasy entry you need to be a fan of San Diego Deals and Steals and LEGOLAND California that is it.   We have several other bonus entries but only two little requirements that is totally fair right?

Giveaway ends on October 22, 2013.   A winner will be announced on Wednesday October 23, 2013 just in time to make plans to get your Brick or Treat on!

HUGE thank you to the good folks at LEGOLAND for sponsoring a month of giveaways! Best of luck to all!
