Hallmark Review and Giveaway

 Christmas is by far my favorite time of year. We put up our tree as soon as we have filled our bellies with turkey. Like many families our Holiday Season is filled with many traditions and as long as I can remember Hallmark has been a part of those traditions. It was a really big honor for me to be able to review some of their new products this season and share them with my fans. The first product is part of our favorite tradition by far. Every year our family buys a new ornament for our tree. The North Pole Countdown Keepsake Ornament is an exciting new add for us. On December 1st we will start our countdown with the exciting lights, sounds, and motion every evening before bed.The next product I received is promised to be a new and fun tradition in my house. The book "A Visit to the North Pole" is a fun, interactive story book that my kids are really enjoying.Of course reading together is always a great joy but they think it is amazing to hear the book ask them questions. This book is so cute because it takes a fun, well illustrated approach to explaining just how Santa and his elves make Christmas happen. If you are looking for a new Christmas book to share with your loved ones I highly recommend this book! Lastly we reviewed one of the items I know Hallmark best for, CHRISTMAS CARDS. I love how original yet personal every card is and I hope that the two people I select to send these cards to are over joyed when they receive these cards, or maybe I'll just keep the snow globe for myself ;o).
Hallmark has been gracious enough to offer a giveaway to my amazing fans! The giveaway package includes:
            o   A selection of the newest Signature and Interactive Greetings from Hallmark

Favorite tradition is coming home from late Christmas Eve mass and making a fresh batch of chocolate chip cookies for "Santa". My brothers and sisters and I now do this with our families.

I love Hallmark products! Our tradition is celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas together so for Christmas we make cookies together, and for Hanukkah we play dreidel and other games each night.

Painting Christmas cookies, decorating the tree, singing Christmas Carols, or setting out the painted cookies for Santa (it's a whole ritual thing). Those are my top few favorites. :)

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need:
2 Cups of Sugar
2 Cups of Water
1 Package Sugar Free Jello
A candy Thermometer

Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I like to dust mine …

The Children's Place Review and Giveaway

Recently I was lucky enough to be given a chance to review The Children's Place. With summer time in full force here in West Texas getting some new summer time clothing was not only a needed thing but a fun thing to do. We decided to try out The Children's Place online ordering. I had never done this before and with a packed schedule it was very handy! My daughter loved sitting don and being able to pick out an entire outfit for under $25. In fact she was not only able to get an out fit but to additional pairs of shorts! Not only was ordering fast and easy but we received our clothing in 2 days. Considering we hit a record high 103 degrees yesterday it came none to soon! Here is the adorable outfit that she picked out :O) she had to model it of course! Butterfly Shirt $6; Matching Shorts $6;Flip Flops to go with her out fit $3.50. The excitement of picking her outfit herself Priceless.
She really had so much fun with this and she loves her new flips flops(because the 5 pairs she…

Rubbermaid Hidden Recycler Review and Giveaway

Recently I was given an amazing opportunity to review a new product by Rubbermaid called the Hidden Recycler. As a family who does a lot to help our planet in many ways this was an exciting opportunity. I loved the fact the Rubbermaid not only made a product that would help my family continue their recycling more easily but they reduced packaging to merely a cardboard sleeve that I could in turn recycle. I quickly opened the package like a kid at Christmas and discovered it would not fit my kitchen cabinets :O( we are in the middle of a kitchen remodel and the layout of my old cabinets would not hold the brackets.  So as I sat down to gloat about not being able to use this amazing product, and I notice two holes on the lid and made a massive dash for the directions. Sure enough I can attach it with screws! (Which ironically took me forever to find in our construction materials) I found the perfect place for it in my laundry room and began putting all of Rubbermaid's claims to the …
