{Not So} Wordless Wednesday: Happy Halloween!

Here is our costume this year. Very original if I do say so myself. Basically, I found an Olympic suit clearanced in August on Amazon for $1.50!! Then I found a cheap leotard, cute iron-on design, Dollar Tree tights to make it a gymnast underneath. Then, I made the blue & black ribbon hair tie with scrap ribbon, elastic band and my hot glue gun. The Olympic pin, I won from the Pantene giveaway making it a little more authentic in my book.
 
We've received so many compliments from local Halloween events this weekend. Hope you like it!

Shutterfly Holiday Cards & Giveaway!

I spent this week taking our daughter to fun places around town, many of which involved pumpkin patches. It's crazy that the year has flown by. This month it's Halloween. Next month, Thanksgiving. And then Christmas!!

Personalized Christmas Cards are an annual tradition since the birth of our daughter. For us they show our families and friends how our growing family, and a way to say we miss you. As always  I turn to my favorite photo store, Shutterfly. I'm a proud returning customer of 4 years, since we first made my daughter's birth announcements. They're a family fave and I recommend them to all my friends throughout the year.

Denny's Build You Own Burgers & Shakes

I find that one of the hardest part of being a mom and wife, is cooking dinner every night. The task gets especially harder if you have picky eaters. (Yes, I do include husbands in this category as well.)

Denny's has created a "Build Tour Own" Menu for burgers and shakes with options for almost any picky eater. These burgers start at just $6.99 at my local Denny's and only $3.79 for the shakes! 

There are 37 different ingredients to build your perfect burger:
  • Patty - Beef, Veggie, Grilled Chicken Breast or Turkey
  • Base - Sesame Seed, Whole Wheat, Grilled Potato or Cheddar
  • Cheese - American, Swiss, Cheddar, Pepper Jack, Mozzarella
  • Toppings - Too many to list but 15 regular and 9 premium yummy toppings!!
I can't imagine trying to cook that at home!

She's Got Issues Book & DVD Curriculum Book Tour:

As a woman, it is really hard sometimes to admit that I'm flawed in some areas.  We all know we're flawed, we just don't talk about it. We dance around the subject in arguments with our signification others and wrestle with it ourselves but do we ever really get down to the real issues? I want to share with you a new Christian book, "She's Got Issues: Seriously good news for stressed -out, secretly scared control freaks like us" by Nicole Unice. 

I never thought I had issues. My husband might have mentioned it a time or two, but it never clicked in my head, or heart until I started reading Nicole's book. I'd seen the symptoms in other women, but not in myself. I've officially accepted my place in the She's-Got-Issues-Club and as Nicole says "I'm in good company." Nicole takes us through the five ordinary issues that plague our lives and relationships - control, insecurity, comparisons  fear, anger along with unforgiveness. Though, you may not experience issues in all of the areas, some more than others may resonate with the reader.

My mother has a fall birthday. In a few weeks to be exact and when thinking of what to send her, flowers come to mind. I always find the flower selection for this time of year so beautiful. The reds, oranges, yellows, darker pinks and purple hues compliment the season.
