We have anew [seasonal] family member.. Meet Fred #elfonashelf

So after reading about it all last year and checking out all the fun on Pinterest, I decided my family needed an Elf on a Shelf.
Our elf "Fred" is making himself at home. The boys haven't met him yet.
But will they get an introduction !
Fred spent the evening playing Luke's Drangonball Z Xbox game and eating candy.

I can't wait to see what Fred does throughout the Holiday Season.
I hope you enjoy his antics as much as we do...

Have you seen the newest product from Carmex?

The other day, I received a new product from Carmex.
The orange [think creamsicle] flavored lip conditioner struck a happy cord with hubby. I asked him to open the package and he instantly was drawn to the product.
The lip conditioner is an original product. Nothing like the lip balm nor the lotion. The conditioner feels wonderful on your lips.

How do your travel plans pan out? #ConnectingFlights #spon

Travelling with 3 boys is not the easiest thing.
It's been over a year now since we travelled by air.
Things generally go smoothly, generally.
We've had some snags in our travelling, which have been stressful.
Such as being stuck in an airport with 3 boys (1, 4, and 7) for 6 hours because we our luggage
(even though we were in line) in a certain time prior to our flight.
Family Vacation in NY 2010
This experience didn't deter us completely because we travelled to the same location the following year, just taking a straight through flight into a smaller airport. We just had to drive farther from home to get to our local departing airport.
I absolutely am excited to see "Connecting Flights" from Sears

Shutterfly - Thank the Troops !!! Do This Today !!!

Over 1.5 million troops serve our great nation. Many of them will be overseas, in harm’s way, and away from their families over this holiday season.

My brother (currently at Ft. Dix NJ) is about to be one of those deployed. He is a veteran and still proudly serving his country.

Shutterfly has created an amazing way to send a THANK YOU card to every American hero.

For this project to succeed, everyone has to do their part.  Just select a card from our 4 different designs, add a message and/or photo if you choose and click send.

Shutterfly will print and ship your card to the troops at no cost to you.

Please take the time to create a card for the troops, and I would love for you to please share this with your Facebook family and friends (There is a share option when you complete your card).

Modern Greetings Review

Modern Greetings is a Custom Stationary Website that allows you to personalize products for yourself, or to gift to others.
From Photo books, to invitations, and even cards, you can find a variety of items to choose from.
I was given the opportunity to review Modern Greetings, their ordering process, and products.
The ordering process was easy. Personalizing my products was very simple. Choosing which products I wanted was the difficult part. There were so many I could have put into my online shopping basket!
I decided on a smaller notebook, and a notepad.
My package has arrived.
The personalization that Modern Greetings gives their shipping envelopes is wonderful.

Winner announced

Congratulations to the winner of the
Hoppin Halloween Giveaway!
