Aren't these adorable? I love Christmas and decorating for the holidays. These are such a cute and easy way to dress up your powder room and kitchen.
The Holiday collection features four cheerful designs: Santa, Snowman, Candy Cane, and Holiday Scene.
These decorative bottles contain Dial Complete's antibacterial foaming hand soap. My five year old was so excited when he saw them. He loved the designs and the foaming soap. He said, "we have this kind of soap (foaming soap) at preschool".
I love these fun Holiday designs and having a bit of Christmas cheer at the sink.
Disclosure: Dial provided a free sample of their Holiday Foaming Hand Soap so I could review them. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.
JCPenny is offering free haircuts to school age children from kindergarten (or 5 years old) to sixth grade. The free haircuts are offered on Sundays by appointment. You can get the phone number for your local JCPenney salon here. When I called to make an appointment, they were really booked. I had to schedule two weeks out, so plan ahead.
I took advantage of this great freebie a couple of weeks ago and took my oldest in for a haircut. I think he looks great and he got a sucker when he was done which made his day. The stylist won't check you out at the cash register because it is a free haircut so bring along some cash for a tip.
Here is our menu from 2 weeks ago since I took Thanksgiving week off from the menu plan. I hope you find some inspiration and I would love to know what you are having for dinner. (I need some inspiration too.) Feel free to share your menu ideas or links to your favorite recipes in the comments.
Monday: Turkey, gravy, sweet potato casserole, stuffing, bread machine buttery rolls
Wednesday: leftovers, fruit
Thursday: Tortillini, salad, breadsticks
Friday: American Chop Suey, buttered green beans
Saturday: Bacon wrapped sliders, salad, onion rings
There is so much for which to be thankful. I have been listening to an audio book "The Proper Care and Feeding of Marriage" by Dr. Laura. It has really made me reflect and think about the quality and amount of time I give my husband. I realized that I don't spend enough time with him so I took the night off from blogging last night. Since I took the night off, I might write a little more tonight.
I am thankful for my family, especially my husband and three beautiful boys. I love being a wife and mom and sharing life with these amazing people.
I am also thankful for my readers. I have been writing this blog for a couple of years and have been blessed with growing numbers and wonderful feedback. I am thankful for my 1255 subscribers, 1210 facebook fans, 2458 twitter followers, and 649 pinterest followers.
If you would like to participate in 30 Days of Giving thanks, you can link up your posts at Blessed Beyond Words.
Tonight I am thankful for my new Mom's group at church. We have had two meetings so far and they have been wonderful. For two hours I get to sit and talk with other Mom's while my little munchkins are in the nursery with the kindest women taking care of them. The boys love the play time with different toys and other kids and I love sitting with a cup of hot tea and a snack enjoying the company of other women like me. It's rejuvenating. Today we said the rosary. It was actually my first time to ever say the rosary. It was meaningful and I liked spending time in group prayer. We also read a chapter in a women's devotional and several bible verses. I am so thankful for this group. This is the first time in many years that I have felt a real connection with others in my church community.
Today I am thankful for my Dad and his creativity, work ethic, and generosity. He has been working hard building a playground for his grandchildren in his backyard. He was given a well-loved playset that he took apart, hauled to his own property and reassembled. Then he bought all new swings and has been working many hours adding new elements to his playground. He added a gang plank, bridge, sandbox with seating all around, and he is working on a clubhouse over the sandbox which will have a large tube slide attached to it. Well done Dad! We love your playground. The boys got to play on Grandpa's new playground over Thanksgiving break and can't wait to go back.
This giveaway is ending tonight so hurry to win a tube of Safeskin.
Hurry and enter to win Purex plus Oxi. This giveaway is ending soon.
Tonight I am thankful for Children's books. When the boys are bouncing off the walls I can always settle them down with some of their favorite stories. As the boys get older, they seem to be more interested in books. We have been reading to our children everyday for as long as I can remember. They love to sit next to me or my husband and cuddle in for story time.
Tonight I am thankful for the Thanksgiving holiday. I love gathering together with family and preparing a celebratory meal. I love the boys spending time with their cousins and making the same kinds of memories that we made when we were kids. I love being reminded of how important it is to say Thank You to God for the blessings he has given us this year.
I wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving.
