Chalkboard Style Christmas Printable Giveaway


My house is finally starting to have the Christmas feel. The tree is decorated, but my little girl will probably take off the ornaments by tonight.  I cannot believe she can almost walk! Ah! How does life go by so quickly? Last year we brought home our little munchkin from the hospital. Now she is talking, giggling and oh so tall! 

Decorating for Christmas has taken a new form this year. No more decor in reaching distance from the baby. Seriously, she would probably try and eat anything shiny and bright! ha! That is why my new favorite kind of decor can be hung on the walls. This keeps the baby safe and the house in Christmas spirits! It's a win-win situation. ;)

One of my favorites for Christmas wall decor is from Ransbury Decor. They have an adorable "Let it Snow" printable. Besides the printable being adorable, the best part is the price! For only $2.00 anyone can download and print this adorable Christmas design! I love affordable decor, which leaves more money towards buying Christmas gifts. :) Thank goodness!




Another great printable to get into the Christmas season is the festive Merry Christmas Tree Printable. How adorable! I love the simplicity of the design. Cute! Again the price tag is $2.00 for a download. So affordable!

The printable took me down memory lane to the Christmas when my husband and I were dating. Sigh... I remember him saying something about mistletoe and honestly I'm not sure if there was mistletoe, ha maybe he just wanted to kiss me, but soon after he held me in his strong arms and gave me a sweet kiss under the gently falling snow.

When do you decorate for Christmas? This year my goal has been to decorate and buy all Christmas presents before December 1st! I'm hoping this will leave more time for the true meaning of Christmas.

Top 10 TV Shows to Watch on Netflix


Lately, I've found myself watching more Netflix. I love watching shows while mopping, cooking doing laundry and other housework. Netflix in my opinion is the best alternative to cable. Netflix has an enormous list of not only movies, but also TV series.  The list below contains my favorite Mommy-fun TV  Shows to watch on Netflix.

You can sign up for Netflix for $8.99 per month. Now that's way cheaper seeing a movie in theaters!
What to watch on Netflix


Chuck - is a drama/comedy. An average computer store clerk named Chuck accidentally gets secret government files downloaded into brain. Soon after he finds himself helping on top-secret missions. This is my favorite TV show ever! I love the witty humor, adventure and love stories. 

Drop Dead Diva - is a legal drama/comedy. The show features a fashion model who dies and comes back to earth and inhabits the body of a plus-size lawyer. Semi-cheesy, but I love this show! 

Psych - is a comedy/drama. The extremely observant main character, Shawn Spencer, solves crimes with his "Psychic" powers. If you need a laugh, watch this show!

Once Upon A Time - is a fairy-tale drama. People in the town of Storybrooke, Maine discover they're from another magical land. Every character has a fairy-tale story and each season the town fights a new villain. Simply stated: This show is great!

Property Brothers - is a real-estate series. Twin brothers Drew and Johnathan Scott help clients buy and renovate homes! After watching this series you will want to go to Home Depot! 

House Hunters International - is a real-estate series. The show features individuals, couples and families that are looking for homes in a new country.  If you love traveling, watch this show! 

Love It or List It- is a home design series. Homeowners have to choose between a new home or their original home that has been renovated. I love reno's! 

Gilmore Girls - is a drama/comedy. The show features Lorelai, a single Mother raising her daughter Rory. The episodes are packed with drama between Lorelai and her rich parents and other school/work events. Another great show to watch during the cold winter season. 

House - is a medical drama. When patients have puzzling symptoms they're sent to Dr. House. Even though he is not a people-person and a bit cold, Dr. House is a pure genius! Fair warning the show does show some parts of medical procedures. So, if blood makes you squeamish - don't watch! 

Fraiser-The main character Fraiser Crane is a psychiatrist who runs a call-in radio show . Even though he is a recently divorced man he takes on new family challenges. Classic 90's show! 


Do you have a favorite Netflix TV show that wasn't mentioned?

Weekly Scripture Challenge: Strengthening Faith and Free Printable

I haven't written much in the past couple of weeks. Family life has really taken a tole with everyone getting the sick bug. FINALLY everyone in my family is feeling better. I have decided there is nothing quite like being sick, while trying to take care of a sick baby and hubby. We were pretty miserable. Netflix was on a lot! I caught up on some good TV series. I'm doing a post this week about my favorite Netflix shows - so stay tuned.

Now onto the weekly scripture memorization challenge. Luke 22:32 is another favorite scripture. 


The scripture reminded me of the airplane safety video. If something were to go wrong it's most important to secure yourself with a safety breathing mask (what are those called..?) to more efficiently help others. 

How true it is that we need to strengthen ourselves before we can effectively help others. Now this doesn't mean we need to be perfect. We simply need to do our best to become better so we can help uplift and inspire others to overcome adversity.

Here is the link to the free printable

Have a fabulous week :)

A Bakers Dream Giveaway


Oh sweet cupcakes! After receiving a package of zebra pink cupcake liners, breast cancer sprinkles and other cupcake goodies from The Creative Baking Shop, I couldn't wait to start baking and this review! 

Even though I am far from a baker, I do enjoy making sweet treats here and there! Today I used unsweetened applesauce instead of butter/oil in the boxed cake directions. I couldn't tell the difference in taste, and isn't it a great feeling to save any extra calories in the sweet treats department. 



My favorite product was the breast cancer sprinkles...uh can you say CUTE! Plus, they tell a great story to whomever you decide to share the goodies with :) I won't tell if you eat three or four all by yourself ;) Another favorite product was the adorable zebra cupcake liners. The pink/white added the perfect girlie touch. Mmmwah! 

Best part about the products from The Kreative Baking Shop was that everything came without being broken! I appreciate when companies spend the extra time and money to bubble wrap delicate products. 

Make sure to check out The Kreative Baking Shop. The store is loaded with adorable and affordable baking goods! My favorite Christmas pick from their shop is the Jumbo Red and Green Sprinkles - AH! Those would look perfect on any Christmas sugar cookie. Best part is the bottle is only $2.50! Now that's a good deal for cute sprinkles!



Now to the final giveaway for Breast Cancer Awareness month. Special thanks to The Kreative Baking Shop for sponsoring this giveaway. The winner will receive a four ounce bottle of pink ribbon sprinkles, 12 pink ribbon sugar dec-ons, pink ribbon cookie cutter and pink /white zebra baking cups! Now that's a bakers dream giveaway! Don't forget to read the terms and conditions below!



Terms & Conditions: 

The one winner will receive a four ounce bottle of pink ribbon sprinkles, 12 pink ribbon sugar dec-ons, pink ribbon cookie cutter and pink /white zebra baking cups.  Anyone wanting to enter must live in the United States. Refer to the giveaway for details on the opening and closing dates. The winner is chosen randomly and will be announced two days after the giveaway closes.


I was not paid to write or host this giveaway, however I did receive a free sample  from The Kreative Baking Shop. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
