I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Softcard. I received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
A couple of months ago I had THE worst thing in the world happen to me when I went shopping. Earlier that day, I had been going through my purse while I was at home. I had pulled all my credit cards out, and cleaned out my entire purse. Little did I know, my one credit card that I use all the time had fallen out on the floor. When I got to the store, I shopped like I normally planned to do. When I got to the cash register to pay for my purchases, I realized I didn’t have the card and had to leave all my purchases behind. It was horrible.
Just when I thought I was done wrapping gifts, putting together presents and could relax for the rest of the season, I remembered about 5 people I still need to get gifts for — and don’t get me started about my Christmas card list. I am the world’s worst when it comes to Christmas cards. Thankfully I have a built in elf (aka my teenage daughter) who loves to celebrate the holiday as much as I do. I enlisted her help to help me tackle those last minute holiday chores I need to finish. I mean, Christmas is next week, right?

Our family are game freaks. Board games, video games, outside games — we love to play, so when I heard about Fitivities — I knew it was going to be a game I fell in love with. It is not your ordinary board game, this game will move you!

Every year at Christmas, the cat and the dog get new toys. For Tucker, our chihuahua, we get him one small stuffed animal, but for Mittens, our rescue cat, we always go over and above getting her tons of toys because she loves to play.

Okay — those two things might sound like they contradict each other, but I can promise you that the freedom to be spontaneous and scheduling time together all go hand in hand. If your life is anything like mine, it is BUSY — but by carving out special days just to hang out and be together, then that gives you the freedom you need.
During the Christmas season you may want to make use of your blender; especially if you receive one as a present. Using a blender is an excellent way of mixing together juices, soft fruits and vegetables to make some tasty treats.
Of course Christmas recipes you can make in a blender are always welcome over the holidays. It’s a great time to be taking your Breville blender out and being creative. I’ve selected three delicious Christmas creations you can put together.
With 2015 right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about goals and visions we have for our lives. Notice I did not say resolutions? That word means nothing to me — not anymore. I am setting goals for the visions I have of a new and improved me — and you should set goals for the visions you have of the new and improved you. There are many things that you can do, but there are 5 for sure that you can do to help you kickstart 2015.
I am privileged to live about 10 minutes away from the very popular Patti’s 1880′s settlement in Grand Rivers, KY. It is a tourist attraction that takes you back to the 1800′s with food, clothing, decorations and more. Yesterday, my husband and I celebrated our 21st wedding anniversary by having dinner there and checking out all the Christmas lights and holiday decorations.
Thank you to Upromise for sponsoring this post and for bringing awareness about the financial elephant in the room. All opinions listed are 100% my own.
Our daughter is in her junior year of high school. Up til now, she has been undecided about what she wants to do, but recently shared with me her desire to go to online art school. She wants to be a comic book designer, or an illustrator for children’s books. I think she has chosen a wonderful career that goes along beautifully with her strengths, but now we have to address the topic that most families hate to address: the college tuition and financial side of it all.
It is time for us to address the financial elephant in the room. →']);" class="more-link">Continue reading
I never go to bed with earphones on. I have this crazy dream that I am going to get all tangled up in the cord, the phones will come out of my ears, and get wrapped all around my neck. Then — I learned about Bedphones — and my fears took a backseat. These sleep headphones are awesome.
