Come Escape with Me for some Me Time


This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Weave Made Media®, PEOPLE® and Sunset® Magazines, and The Hershey Company®, but all my opinions are my own. #weavemade #HolidayMeTimeMags http://my-disclosur.es/RgFrEH

With the holidays literally around the corner, I am feeling the pressure of the daunting To Do List! Thanksgiving is less than four days away and I still haven't completed my grocery shopping! But that is for another post on another day! 
While I was shopping at Tom Thumb the other day, I picked up the newest People Magazine and a King Size Hershey's Milk Chocolate bar  ~ Oh yes I did! 


Today, I am escaping to my favorite place in the house, my living room. For at least a few minutes while the kids are at school and the Mr. is at work, I am turning my phone on silent, curling up by the fire with one of my favorite magazines, hot cocoa  and my King Size Hershey chocolate bar, while soothing music is playing in the background.




When you wear so many hats and are so many things to so many people, it gets exhausting. So today, it is time for some much needed Me Time! I don't get this very often, so I'm going to take advantage of this time and enjoy it. 


I really enjoy reading People Magazine, it helps me escape my normal madness as a mom, wife, blogger and shop owner. 
Oh if only I could do this everyday! Oh wait, I can't, I have Thanksgiving to plan and groceries to buy!! And there goes my phone! Just like that, my Me Time is up! 

But there is no reason you can't enjoy some Me Time! How would you like to save $1.00 with purchase of ONE (1) PEOPLE® or Sunset® magazine and ONE (1) REESE’S®, HERSHEY’S® or other selected King Size bar (2.1 to 5.0 oz.) The digital coupon is available through the Safeway Just4U online portal 11/21/14 - 12/19/14 (while supplies last) You have to register for Just4U to get access to the digital coupon. Here is the link to the coupon at Tom Thumb.

It's Tuesday! Let's Party - Linky Party That is!


With Thanksgiving next week, we wanted to share some of the popular links from last week! 

How do you make your turkey stuffing? I'm liking all of the above variations! Maybe I should try something different this year! Do you make the same thing each Thanksgiving or do you try to change it up from time to time? I like change, but my family likes it the same way! Maybe I'll surprise them! 

Are you ready to link up your favorite Craft, Party, DIY, Recipe or Game? Then come find out how at the end of our post. 

Have you met all our fabulous co-hosts and stopped by their blog to say hello yet? If not, you really need to, the inspiration in this group is AWESOME!!

A Tabletop Competition Finalist

Last Monday, November 3rd, started off FABULOUSLY! I woke up that morning to find out I was chosen as one of the 20 finalists for the BASH table top design competition! We are so honored and very nervous at the same time! Remember back in early September we WON a golden ticket to the BASH conference? Well, we had the opportunity to submit a rendering and 50 word description for a place in the “Table Top Competition”, where you design and decorate a table for 10 in a specific theme. Only 20 participants were chosen!! Can you imagine? You may know some of the fabulous judges ~Eddie RossHostess with the Mostess and The TomKat Studio! Amazing right?! So I held my breath until the winners were announced! I saw my name & couldn't believe my eyes! I had to read it a few time!! LOL
Pinch me, please!! This is going to be SO fun and the competition is going to be seriously fierce, but I am super excited to be chosen to compete! Congratulations to all of our friends who will also be competing along side us!!

We can't share our table design with you yet, but as soon as the conference is over, you know we will be thrilled to share it! Mean time, please keep your fingers crossed and if you wouldn't mind saying a little prayer, we would really appreciate it! We will be at the BASH conference from January 15 - 17, 2015 in Arizona! 
Wish us luck!!!
