New Year's Coupon and My Favorite Things

In the spirit of New Year I'd like to offer you all a coupon for FREE Shipping off orders over $25. Enter code NEWYEARS at checkout to receive discount. Valid till January 4, 2008.

I just added a few more things to the site like matching belts and hair bows. One of my favorite styles is Cheetahlicious especially since so many little girls are into the Cheetah Girls. How cute would the belt and hair bow look with one of their adorable outfits. The best part is that the belts are velcro. They will make potty training so much easier. I added some more items from JP Lizzy. I especially love the JP Lizzy Scarlet Poppies Chamelia Clutch. It's so cute and fun looking. And this is not a new favorite, but man do I love these things, the BumpyName Orbit Labels. I myself have borrowed my daughter's to use on my water bottle while setting up the holiday shop at my daughter's school. Sure glad I did because seemed like all the moms there had a water bottle and like I'd remember what kind I brought it it didn't have my name or shall I say her name on it. I think I'll be buying one for myself. Who says you have to be a kid to use them:)

Holidays Are Over

The holidays are over. Our Christmas was good except about 20 minutes before we had company on Christmas Eve my back went out. I was in so much pain. The next morning it got worse. I get so excited every year to watch the girls open their gifts and this year I couldn't get into it as much because of the pain. I took 2 naps which if you know me you know that I never get to take a nap in the day let alone 2 of them. My hubby helps me out any given day, but when I don't feel well he really steps it up. I got to rest until 30 minutes prior to having a house full of people. I didn't have to do much since my mom and mil make the main dish so I just had to throw on a few sides. Then my hubby, mom, and aunt cleaned up. Today my back still hurts, but nothing like the past 2 days so I took it easy all day. So I'm thinking that maybe I should get that x-ray my dr. wanted me to get 1 1/2 years ago when my back went out and he said my spine is a little curved.

Computer Frustration

Why it it everytime you type a long e-mail or post that the computer then decides to not work. Last night I wrote a long blog and of course can't remember half of it now and once I hit to post it, my computer decided to just get rid of it. It's so frustrating. Didn't my computer know that I was making homemade candies for a few hours and just wanted to come down here and relax. No I guess not. Ok enough complaining...

The other night I signed up on cre8Buzz under littlepiddle. My friend sent me the invite the other day so I thought I'd try it out. If you have a cre8Buzz account stop on there and say hi:)

Tip of the Week

More holidays are around the corner and you know what that means...leftovers. If your using plastic wrap try this tip and it will make your life so much easier. Store plastic wrap in freezer to make pulling it out a cinch. This is one of my favorite time savers as I make my husband’s lunch 5 days a week for work so this saves me lots of agrivation…lol!

Almost Done Shopping

Dare I say it I'm almost done my Christmas shopping. I have my girls done, my nieces and nephews, and some of the parents done. I only have a handful of gifts left to buy. Don't worry I'm not that ahead of myself. Every year I give out handmade chocolates. I make them about 1-1/2 weeks before Christmas and they take what seems like forever. Over the years I have learned some short cuts to save time, but in the end it's still takes a lot of time. So see I need to be done my shopping early cause I'll be all wrapped up in chocolate in another week. Such a hard job, but someones got to do it:) Not that I'm an expert, but if you're looking to make your own chocolate covered pretzels or want to make my yummy peanut butter balls let me know and I'll share my secrets! Trust me if there's a short cut I've found it:)
