Halloween is almost here! I don’t know about you, but Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! I love dressing up in fun (and sometimes spooky) costumes, decorating my home, and of course, the sweet treats. But trying to live a healthy lifestyle and dealing with all the candy that comes along on Halloween can be kind of tricky. On the one hand, everyone needs a candy bar every now and then right? On the other hand, there can always be too much of a good thing. I want to instill good eating habits in my kids, and that includes making sure that we don’t over indulge no matter what time of the year it is. So when I heard about the Switch Witch I just knew I needed to tell you about it! Read more…

Setting A Holiday Table On A Budget Bright Settings

I always love to have holiday dinners at my house. We have a big family, so there is always lots of food and fun. One thing I have never had is a pretty table setup. My mom would bring some old tablecloths or sometimes we would even use a large flat sheet. It works but it’s tacky.

Now that we are basically starting over, I wanted to start to acquire nice things. I want to have a beautiful table. I want matching tablecloths, runners, and cloth napkins. Bright Settings has all these items and they are going to make my holiday table looks beautiful this year. Read more…

Ladies, I have found a gift for you to give the man in your life this Christmas. Most men hate carrying around their bulky keys and KeySmart has come up with a solution! Below is my husband’s review of the product.

I just can’t stand a ball of keys poking into my leg in my pocket. It’s ugly and uncomfortable. Plus you have to fiddle through them all to get to the one you need. Read more…

Make Your Own BOO Kit This Halloween + Enter To Win Walmart eGift Cards! #BOOItForward #Cbias MARS

Halloween is such a fun holiday. You get to dress up in creative costumes and get lots and lots of candy. This year to help celebrate our family made some BOO Kits to share with their teachers.

This is the first year that our kids have been in public school. It’s been a little bit of an adjustment but their teachers have been amazing to make sure they are adjusting well to all the changes and to help them understand what is expected from them. So we wanted to #BOOItForward and make them a BOO Kit.
