100 Days to Christmas E~Book Review

I was fortunate enough to receive an advance copy of 100 Days to Christmas by Jennifer Tankersky. I am so happy I have this ebook.  My holiday life is now easier. I've been following Jennifer's 100 Days to Christmas since 2008 when she started it.  Totally love it.  This is the first year she has offered a book & when I say "Thank goodness" I mean "Run now & get it!"  It's a pure steal at $4.99. Jennifer helps you start planning in September (which is right around the corner) & takes you all the way through Christmas Day.  She includes the fall holidays as well.  Not only does she have tasks to do she gives you fun, light hearted ideas to do through out the lead up to the big day.  Plus goals and encouragement. Having the ebook gives you the opportunity to see everything for this year up front.  No waiting for the daily email.  You have it at your finger tips.   Not to mention she gives you some free dowloadable lists within the b

Back to School w/ Tiny Prints

I made a little vlog to introduce you all to Tiny Prints . Love them. With my first real Back to School this year I am looking for traditions to start with Cheeks. I am planning on taking his pic with him holding a sign or a quote bubble stating his school year. I am finding it hard to realize my 11 pounder that I brought home is this skinny little 5 year old heading to Kindergarten. So how do I compound these of course. Check this out: So check Tiny Prints out! *Disclaimer: This is a compensated post. All opinions are 100% mine*

The winner of the Lawry's Gift Pack is #18! Gia Pet! I've emailed her & if I do not hear from her in 48 hours, I will pull another winner. Thanks everyone!
I love JC Pennys. Great stuff, great deals. Cheeks is starting Kindergarten this year & we just went, last weekend, to JC Penny for sneakers. Apparently, his foot is an 11, not a 10 any longer. They had Sketchers for 50% off. This was the brand that he kept talking about, over & over. Got him his sneakers for $25! So quick, go sign up. You will not be disappointed.

Lawry's Labor Day Style for 2 (plus a Giveaway!!)

A few weeks back I was asked by The Motherhood to get together with some of my fellow local bloggers and try out some new Lawry's products.  To get creative and throw our best cooking skills forward.  Some of you know that I am just a whiz in the kitchen, sure I've tried to poison Bobster with undercook chicken or even serving him ground meat that tasted like seafood but I digress.  Anyway, due to some scheduling conflicts I was unable to make the get together but thanks to Skype I joined in.  Just wish Skype would do smell a vision...that would have made the fun time complete.   Here's what was made (and what I made later but neglected to take photos because I am a dork!): Photo Source We were asked to do a theme so Labor Day Dinner for 2 it was. My favorite had to be the Cheesy Baked Artichoke Dip ....WoW!  So good!!!  Check out the recipe: 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese (about 2 ounces) 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoo
