This is a Words with Friends "pass and play" game I started with my daughter tonight.  She's never played the Scrabble board game and has only watched me play Wordfeud. She refused any pointers I tried giving her to up her score. Honestly, she doesn't need much help.

I better watch out once she figures out how much math is involved in this game :-)

So ... why am I tweeting about Are We There Yet? with nearly the same passion I have for all things Castle?
Because of a contest. The more retweets I get, the higher my chances on winning a trip to New Orleans.

Are We There Yet? on TBS will reward the best influencer with a trip for two to the Essence Music Festival in New Orleans this July. This getaway includes airfare, V.I.P. hotel accommodations and tickets to the biggest event of the summer! To increase your chance to win, tweet with the hashtag -- #AreWeThereYet -- and the more retweets you get, the closer you'll be to the Grand Prize.

Please help me out. I NEED a vacation! And even if you don't, check out "Are We There Yet?". It's worth it's weight in laughs. You can view a full episode here

Febreze® SPORT - not just for sweats

I have a household full of kids and pets. OK, two kids, two dogs, and a guinea pig (and you can't even tell when you walk into the house, at least that's what the pastor said).

Only one kid is in sports (the girl!) Though the boy generates his own brand of smell by virtue of being a teenager. Last month I received a sample case of Febreze® SPORT to try out.

So I gave one to each of the kids and I keep one near my gym bag and one in the den for quick touchups around the den/kitchen area. I haven't used it yet on my bag, but my daughter uses it in her room, and it gets rid of guinea pig smell! I kid you not!

It works on the dogs beds, too. So not only does it work on sweat, it works on pet smells. Double win!

The Febreze® SPORT collection is specifically formulated to find and eliminate sweat odors on shoes, apparel and gear. Recently teaming up with TV personality and Cincinnati Bengals linebacker, Dhani Jones, Febreze® SPORThas released some humorous video footage featuring Dhani Jones targeting those who could truly benefit from the product assortment.

And apparently works at firehouses too:
