Start Your Holiday Shopping On eBay!


I absolutely cannot believe that the holidays are OFFICIALLY here! Oh my goodness! Thanksgiving was good for us and my mother-in-law did all the cooking, bless her heart and my fat cankles! I tried to help out a bit but man my ankles do not exist anymore! So, I had to rest lots. Thank God mother-in-law cooks awesome and did not mind! But, now that Thanksgiving is over with, all you are going to hear is THE HOLIDAYS ARE HERE! So, with hearing that, have you starting your shopping yet? I am sure you all have! Especially with all those fabulous Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals! Whoosh! You want to know where I shop? I shop at local shops and online!

I have noticed that eBay has all of the hottest toys this year, everything your child could want and more and at pretty good prices. I had no clue, … [Read more...]

Kleenex Cares: Being Thankful #KleenexCares


It is that time of year, when you want to let your family and friends know what you are thankful for. It is also a time to help out others, whether it be a stranger who needs some sort of assistance or a friend or family member that needs some help. Image from morguefile For me, I am so very thankful for my family. I am thankful for a husband who works SO hard EVERY single day, even his days off, to ensure his family is secure and happy. I am thankful for both my little miracles, life is sooooooo much more interesting and full of life and love with them around me! I am also so thankful for the little one growing in my tummy. I love feeling him/her kicking me, every single hour of the day, LOL. I am thankful for friends who care about us and of course for my Mommy and Daddy!!!

I would be heartbroken if they ever went under :( Every other … [Read more...]

Still Enjoy Doing Laundry With My Maytag Bravos XL! #MaytagMoms


Who can honestly say that they enjoy doing laundry? I mean, REALLY enjoy it? I don't think there is many who would say that, but me, I can say that and mean it! Three months ago I received my Maytag Bravos XL High-Efficiency Top Load Washer and Maytag Bravos XL High Efficiency Dryer and still, to this day, love doing my family's laundry. It is not a chore anymore, but an experience, a fun one! I depend on these two glorious machines to do all the dirty work, so I don't have to anymore. And work they do! They work super hard to ensure, at the end of their cycles, that my family's clothes are clean and stain-free. What other machines can do that for you? They are certainly dependable! I NEED dependability!!! The washer is way different from regular washing machines. Why? Because this washing machine uses PowerSpray Technology. What is PowerSpray Technology? It is simply something that ensures your laundry detergent that you put into the machine, is distributed appropriately. … [Read more...]
