My Most Helpful Tips For Holiday Tech Shopping!

Image
Now that December is right around the corner it's time to start thinking about Christmas!
I'm sure that there are some electronics that you need to buy on your Christmas List.

Here are My 5 Most Helpful Tips For Holiday Tech Shopping!
1~Shop early~As if your kids are looking for a Wii that is a special edition chances are when you see it at the store you better get it. As if it is a HOT item this year it will sell out Quick! Remember when the Cabbage Dolls were $1,000 or more? You sure don't want that to happen.
2~When shopping online look for free shipping as that can save you time and money.If you are sending as a gift you have it delivered right to their door with no charge to you! Saves money as you don't have to drive your car either! You can also join many sites to get money back as you shop!
3~Looking to buy a TV or a Computer? Wait until the last 2 weeks before Christmas.As the stores will have inventory that they will slash the prices on to make room for the new …

Warmly Yours Rug Warmer Review!

Image
I was recently sent a Rug Warmer to review from Warmly Yours. Let me tell you this thing is Awesome! We put a rug in the kitchen to install this under. As this is where I spend most of my time on the computer..It was so easy to do~just unroll put down on floor and plug it in.
I love it when someone comes over and they are sitting at the kitchen table and they notice that their feet are getting warm! As the Rug Warmers measure less than ¼” thick so you don't even notice that it is there.As where I have it plugged in~it is hid too. It has been a blessing as here in Minnesota it is already down in the 20's ! You can see the Rug Warmer and more at Warmly Yours as they have more products to keep you warm!

You can also find them on Facebook and Twitter


I am so happy with the Rug Warmer~I would recommend to everyone! Even my pets like it~as when it is cold they are laying right here with me~Keeping warm from Warmly Yours.

Adopted Ed-Book Review!

Image
November is National Adoption Month and This is A Great Book To Review!

Along with the month long celebration. A very special Adoption Day~November 20, 2010,marked the 11th National Adoption Day. It's a special day because thousands of adoptions are finalized in court rooms all across the United States.


This simple and beautifully illustrated story is about an adopted little boy and his journey through his early years. Sensitive and likable, little Eddie is just like every other kid, eating ice cream and playing ball. At school when he is teased by bullies about being adopted, his mom coaches him through the situation, which ultimately sets the course of his life with personal empowerment. Over time, Eddie feels a strong "void" and becomes curious about his biological parents, which ultimately leads him to find out more. ADOPTED ED concludes with a section of famous people who were adopted. 
This is such a cute little book as not only  does it teach children abo…

Brugo Mug Review & Giveaway! 12/7

Image
If you are anything like me you can't start your day without Coffee. When I wake up the first thing that I do is turn on my coffeepot and wait for that first sip of coffee..
I have a few favorite cups that I use regularly. But like most cups that you you can get today~I have different problems with with all of them.One of them doesn't keep the liquids hot~the other cover falls off all the time and that does not make for a happy morning..
 That is why I was so excited to get my Brugo Mug in the mail! I received a purple one and not only is it my favorite color it is Leakproof! It is a very heavy mug as it is made of stainless steel and has a no slip bottom. This is now now my favorite mug and I have told all~HANDS OFF! :-)  I love the cover the most as this is where the fun starts~
The Brugo Mug has a 3-position drink mode selector~"Lock, Sip, Tip  and Cool"~allowing you perfect taste and temperature control whether you need a bolt of caffeine or prefer to linger over …

Oogy Review and Giveaway! 12/5*CLOSED*

Image
Oogy The Dog Only a Family Could Love About Oogy~In the bestselling tradition of Rescuing Sprite comes the story of a puppy brought back from the brink of death, and the family he adopted. In 2002, Larry Levin and his twin sons, Dan and Noah, took their terminally ill cat to the Ardmore Animal Hospital outside Philadelphia to have the beloved pet put to sleep. What would begin as a terrible day suddenly got brighter as the ugliest dog they had ever seen–one who was missing an ear and had half his face covered in scar tissue–ran up to them and captured their hearts. The dog had been used as bait for fighting dogs when he was just a few months old. He had been thrown in a cage and left to die until the police rescued him and the staff at Ardmore Animal Hospital saved his life. The Levins, whose sons are themselves adopted, were unable to resist Oogy’s charms, and decided to take him home. Heartwarming and redemptive, OOGY is the story of the people who were determin…

Many years ago when my children were younger{we had 3 under the age of 8}we decided to take a road trip from Milwaukee,Wisconsin to Tuscon,Arizona in July.
