Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time for Love; a time for Joy and Peace;
A time to trim the Christmas Tree and a time to stuff the geese.
It's a time when we can come together, however far or near;
To shed a little hope into a world of sorrow and fear.
Yet Christmas could be all year 'round, if only we would try
To gently wipe an old man's brow or soothe a baby's cry.
If we could smile throughout the year as we do on Christmas Day;
Just think what happiness we'd shed along life's weary way.
To give a gift of Hope to one who otherwise has none;
To be a Friend to somebody whom everyone else has shun.
To be Forgiving of our faults, and of our sisters and our brothers;
To Live in Peace and Harmony with ourselves and with each other.
Ah, don't you see that Christmas is more than opening up the gifts;
It's more than singing Christmas Carols and rolling in big snow drifts.
It's a feeling that can stay with you throughout each day, all year;
And all it takes is a loving heart.....and a sensitive little tear.

Wishing you and your families a very Merry and Safe Holiday!

Easy Christmas activity for kids

These are free printables that they can color and then fold into a super cute nativity scene. Print Here.

It's finally time to think Nursery...

And I'm STRESSED!! I was SO excited to get the nursery together and it kind of has been coming together. My crib is STILL in Utah until I can get my family to ship it, I have the bumper but my mom is making the bedding. Without the bedding it's been hard to find decorations because I'm not exactly sure what will match.

So anyway, for Christmas my dad and Grandma are furnishing the rest of my Nursery which I am SO grateful for and blessed to have, I know, but they want to go on Friday and I'm FREAKING OUT! I don't really know what I want, what I need, what colors to get. Help!! Does anyone have tips?!

I LOVE Goodwill!!

I just bought 2 brown iron candle holders for my kitchen wall, kind of like these:

2 red candle holders WITH yummy smelling candles to set on the iron candle holders.
A rustic flower pot with REALLY cute flowers and branches for the corner of my kitchen counters,
and a cute dark wood carving that spells 'family' for above my stove.

ALL for $12!!!!!

The deal is for $7 for $15 worth of chicken wings. Yummy!!

Are you looking for a last minute Holiday treat?!

I found one at Social Coutoure! These are SO simple! Just dip the frosted cupcakes in sugar, use M&M's for the eyes, orange wedges for the nose, gumdrops and licorice for the earmuffs, and pink sprinkles for the cheeks! SO easy, yet it looks like you put way more time into them.

My hair is amazing because of... Suave??

Okay, so remember my post a couple weeks ago about my awesome Herbal Essences find at Target? Well, I took my brand new bottles of Shampoo and Conditioner with me to Utah and left them in my parents bathroom. Lovely. So when I got home that night, I searched through dozens of hair care products, lotions, and body sprays I have under my sink trying to find a drop of conditioner I could use until the next morning when I could make it to the store for some more.

All I had was Suave from what had to be my senior year of High School. The next day, my hair was AMAZING!! It was soft, it did what I wanted it to do, the frizz and flyaways were gone... WTH?! I've been paying over $5 a bottle since High School when I could have paid $1??

It makes sense though, I always look at my old pictures and wish my hair still looked that good... I just blamed it on age or changing of styles and times but no, SUAVE IS AWESOME!! I used it for two weeks and had great hair so you'd think I'd be sold. Nope, a couple days ago I again bought some more Herbal Essences and have used it twice and my hair sucks! You better believe I'm a Suave girl from here on out!!

$5 Starbucks Gift Card

This Saturday and Sunday only, buy a CD from Starbucks and get a free $5 Gift Card!

Let the parties begin!

I never thought that being an adult or going to a party full of adults would require this information, but after my company party last weekend I think that party etiquette is definitely something to be discussed with all the parties people will be attending in the next few weeks.

Here is a list I compiled of Holiday party do's and dont's:

1. DO bring a gift for the Hostess! I've thrown enough parties to know how much stress, time, and money goes into hosting and planning a party and a small thank you gift means a lot. Some things to remember however, is never upstage the hostess; if you want to bring food or a drink call ahead and okay it first.

2. DON'T show up too late. 10 minutes late is generally okay because it gives the hostess a couple more minutes to prepare. Any later than 15 minutes, especially for a dinner party, is rude. The other guests will have to wait around for you and the food will get cold. If the party is less formal, 30 minutes is acceptable. Never show up early unless the hostess has asked... you could end up being more of a distraction.

3. DO say hello and goodbye and remember to thank your hostess at the end of the night.

4. DON'T forget to send a Thank you note within two weeks of the party, and try to include a thing or two about what you enjoyed.

5. DO mingle! Keep conversations light, end conversations gracefully with a "it was so nice to see you, have a great night", and always be polite.

Blogging for Books

I don't remember how I discovered this site, probably a link from a sidebar of another blog,
but I'm glad I did!

Blogging for Books is a website you join where they send you a book to read and all you have to do is write an honest review after you finish. They would like you to read the book in 30 days, but give you up to 90 days. They have TONS to choose from, including childrens books (you can give them as gifts after you read them) and they actually look like pretty good reads.

I chose this one today, TANDEM, and I'm excited to get started!

So if you love reading and blogging, definitely join Blogging for Books!

Walmart for Christmas gifts

Have you been to Walmart lately and checked out their Christmas aisles?! I was there on Friday and it was CRAZY the sales they had going on!! They had about 10 aisles of stocking stuffers, candy, Christmas decorations, plates, blankets, candles, mugs, Christmas baking dishes, perfume, bath sets, and so many other things I can't even think of for SO CHEAP!!! You HAVE to check it out for yourself.


This one is TOTALLY worth it!! Their stuff is cheap, you can easily end up getting something free after using your $10 credit.

Here's another website much like Guilt Group and Rue La La. They sell great stuff at discounted prices and when you sign up you get an automatic $10 gift credit. Once you sign up, make sure you write down the coupon code. Then go to your profile, redeem gift card, and enter that code. It should be P1070, but I'm not 100% sure if that's the only code they give.

Because I can...

I HAVE to share my obsession with One Tree Hill. My friend Laura introduced me to it early last year when she convinced me to have a One Tree Hill marathon with her. I was hooked, although when I watch replay's of the first couple season's now, I have no idea why I was interested or how I got hooked. Anyway, I rented all the seasons from the library after that so I could get caught up and then when I moved here, my sister and I made Tuesday night our One Tree Hill night.

I just watched Tuesday's episode on HULU and wow, it's definitely the best episode I've seen. I love that the show has grown with it's audience and that while it has little drama, it's something I can always relate to and it has great values. I always end up in a feel good mood when it's over.

If you're not a One Tree Hill fan, I would definitely suggest giving it a try, this is one show that I can see lasting a looooooong time.

And now, more of an explanation....

I know, I know, blogging shouldn't take up that much time but in reality it takes a lot more time to find 4 posts a day than you would imagine. I was still looking for amazing deals while I took a writing break and if I found any irresistable ones, I promise I posted them.

I've been so busy!!! I was visiting my family in Utah for the Holidays, and then I had to move and unpack immediately after I returned home, and then I wanted to spend as much time with my baby niece as I could, not to mention a new term started at the college I work for which meant non-stop work and even over time.

I'm back to normal now and I felt so bad for neglecting Stiletto's to Strollers. Thank you so much for sticking around, this blog is so important to me!
