are you ready for some shopping??

If your kids are anything like mine they are constantly counting down the days till Christmas. Or like my three year old, asking and asking and asking.... (There are three in case you were curious.) Since all of our relatives live out of state we are often blessed with the all glorious gift cards for Christmas. They are fast, easy and don't cost an arm and a leg to ship. Plus the recipient gets to pick out something they really want and not some thick itchy wool holiday sweater that Aunt Agnes thought you HAD to have.

Did you know you could take you gift cards and go to the Box Top Marketplace, shop at all the best stores AND earn money for your child's school? Plus it is super easy and you get extra bonus deals and discounts like free shipping or and extra percentage off your total order. Sweet!! What parent isn't looking for an extra deal this holiday season? Plus shopping at Box Tops Marketplace is SUPER easy. Here are some simple steps to help you get started:

1) Go to and click Sign up Now. Sign up free and choose a school to support.
2) Click on the Marketplace tab and start shopping online at more than 70 stores.
3) Your school will receive a donation of up to 8% from your qualifying purchase, up to $20,000 each year.

Did You Also Know?
Your school can earn up to $60,000 every year by participating in all three of the Box Tops for Education programs. You can earn cash for your school every time you:
1) shop online at the Box Tops Marketplace
2) shop for groceries and clip box tops or
3) order books online through the Box Tops Reading Room – at no extra cost to you.

What better way to enjoy special deals, discount prices, top brand stores AND provide extra income to your child's school? I recently scored some major deals from Old Navy, got next day shipping and earned money for my son's school. Did I mention I did this in my warm and cozy pajamas from the comfort of my couch? No long lines, cranky shoppers and over full parking lots - it was a dream come true for this lassie!

So snuggle up by the fire, enjoy a cup of hot cocoa and shop to your hearts content. You'll thank me in the morning!!

i am in love

a onblur="try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}" href=""> Have you ever instantly fallen in love ..... with a product? I am ashamed to say that I am a product junkie. I buy a product because I am wooed by it's pretty package and worldly promises, but when I get it home it - Lets. Me. Down. I know you can relate. So because of this problem I have drawers and cabinets full of once or twice used products. Sigh.... Hubby is not pleased.

So when I heard a lot of positive reviews about SkinCare RX I decided to give it a try. I filled out a quick and simple survey and they developed a list of skin care products that work with my skin type and fit all the requirements I was looking for. Fabulous!!

Since this lassie has skin so fair and enjoys being outdoors, I am beginning to exhibit some, *gasp* wrinkles. Grandma O'Donnell was quite wrinkly so I know what is in my future. I decided to try Bioelements Sleepwear. Swoon!! After one application my face was so soft (softer then a baby's bottom I might add) and looked noticeably different. Ok, that was just one night - will you hold up to the test of time?? I am happy to say that yes, Bioelements Sleepwear has passed the test! Hubby notices my new softness and I find myself always touching my new soft skin.

Since I am hosting 'Giveaway Palooza' this week I thought I would kick off the week with a prize for everyone! SkinCare RX is offering all of my readers a $20 gift certificate! All you need to do is enter you name and email address and they will send you your gift certificate code. The email will come from the address '' with a subject line ' Free $20 Gift Certificate. This gift certificate will allow you to purchase products from any of their three websites -, &!

So go, shop and enjoy your gift!
