Monster Headphones Giveaway! (Or...why Walmart won me over)

By Molly Bice-Jackson - 8:03 AM




Ok, guys.  I have ranted my rage time and again about the fact that Park City does not have a Target. There are three things my town needs in order to fulfill my every need.

1. A Trader Joe's. Do you hear me Trader Joe's? I'm talking to you! I'M YELLING TO YOU. Please come to Park City!!!

2. Red Mango Frozen Yogurt. I can't even talk about it. We have ONE option for Fro Yo and it is only so-so. (Though, I do love the cute Korean couple who own it.)

3. Target.

Ok, four things: Costco.

Aaannd...just to make it an even 5 (an odd five?)--no snow in the winter.

So here's the deal: I have been on the hunt for a new bra for quite a while now. And tell me what stay-at-home mom with young kids has any time to go bra shopping? I tried TJ Maxx (fail. I was torpedo boob all the way to Mexico) and a few stores at the outlet mall.

One night, all on my lonesome, I headed to the Wal-Mart to pick up some various and sundry items. When passing the lingerie aisle, I thought I'd take a gander at the bras. Low and behold, I found THE PERFECT bra for me for THREE DOLLARS AND NINETY EIGHT CENTS. Not even on sale. That is just the price! I was in hog heaven. (I believe it is called the perfect t-shirt bra.)

I don't know what was in the air that night (the fact that I was shopping without kids so Wal-Mart seemed like a paradise?), but I walked out of there with some really great treasures. Their men's section has some good stuff!

My point is this, I have been pleasantly surprised the past few times I've gone into Wally World. Have they upped their game? I kind of think they have. I'm finding more and more items that I want to buy.
Well...my latest obsession are these Monster Headphones. Can you say, "mini vacation?" Every time I put them on, I am totally transported out of the world of diapers and runny noses. The sound on these things are incredible. Combine these headphones with my latest addiction to the show "New Girl" and you have yourself a recipe for child and household neglect. It is just the escape I need.

Peter's buddies were over today and saw these bad boys on the counter and wanted to use them while playing on my iphone. They are so great for kids because you don't have to worry about them falling out of their tiny ears OR breaking because they are totally bendable. For real. And the chord is tangle free. Hallelujah.




These Monster Headphones also have a microphone built in so you can take calls while you are on your phone. They pretty much do everything except for make frozen yogurt and build Costcos.
If you want to win a pair (valued at $150!) head over the the Walmart website  and tell me which color you would choose.

These would make a PERFECT gift for the man in your life who loves to watch movies in bed, talk on his phone, play games, and like to look like he's cool and hip. These are also perfect for your teenager for all the same reasons. Except that they ARE cool and hip.

I've never owned a pair of headphones that are this nice. I love that I can fall asleep while listening to my podcasts at night and they don't bother my inner ears. And they don't get tangled! And my kids can't break them. Pretty much you can't lose.

I hope you get to give these to your lover for Christmas. Let's "hear it" for Monster Candy headphones!

  3. Ok so i am glad you have to approve comments cause as a beautiful singer as you are I smiled as I read chord instead of cord. Little thing but totally reminded me of you and your talents.

  6. Geezo Beezo....those purple ones are awesome. That way....my son won't steal them!! LOL!! I guess there are pros/cons living on the Wasatch Front (instead of Wasatch back). Costco - one of them about 5 miles from my house, the other about 7 miles from my house....one of them is about 2 miles from my work; Target about 6 miles from my house; and last but not least, Walmart about 5 miles from my house. Can you stand it?? I can't seem to stay out of those places either. I can go to the Dollar store and spend under $5 and still get 5 items. When I go to Costco, if I buy 5 items, I'm in it for about $200!! YIKES!! But I spend most of my money on my little grandson and of course clothes for me. Fun stuff. But living in Park City...you have those beautiful fall days when the leaves are so beautiful, cooler days/nights, the Outlet Mall (another awesome place), fun park and kiddie playground, and the mountains are so close. Yes, me and my daughter-in-law have driven to Park City just to eat at Cafe Rio and take little Braxton to the park. So you see, it is all good. I guess we have to just hope Costco, Target, and Frozen Yogurt get a clue and get busy building your stores in Park City, right??!!

  7. I love more than one color, but if I had to choose a color for my husband (who am I kidding, he would love these), it would have to be candy blue! And did you know that Costco was going to build in PC until the city got all stupid about their signage rules?

  8. The green ones are SICK! Orange would be my second favorite. Can you tell I don't like to go with the usuals?

  15. So, for sure I'd have to go with the candy red for my lover who would DIE for them. But I had to laugh cause I would die to be closer to a Red Mango. There used to be one right here, then they moved! NOO! and the nearest Target and Trader Joe's is about 20-25 minutes from here. ugh. Don't they know I live here?! Shame on them.

  18. I thought about choosing blue because Wes is a total BYU nut, but then I thought..."I'M not a BYU nut, and I think the purple ones are rad." So there you have. I'm a selfish wife and I want the purple ones. I KNEW you'd come around to Wally World! I'm going there to try on that bra this weekend. I'll call it a vacation.
