Tony Evans Study Bible Giveaway

This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


The holiday season is about more than just shopping, baked goodies, delicious meals and time with family and friends. Although all of those things are lovely, wonderful and nice, the reason for the season in our house, is that we are celebrating and grateful that Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, was born to save us from our sins. What a tremendous gift He gave, that no amount of commercialization can take away. As such, when gifting to family and friends who are believers, I try to find something that will help them on their spiritual journey; something I know they will appreciate and enjoy. This luxurious Tony Evans Study Bible, Christian Standard Version, is an absolutely wonderful gift idea!

Stikbot Stop Motion Toys



Stikbot Zanimation Studio is a cool gift idea to give kids. It allows them a simple way to make movies and post on their social media to share with their friends. This is the kit where you move something, take a picture, move it slightly, take another picture, etc., and then string it all together to make a video where it looks like they are moving on their own. You can change the background, add sound effects, etc. to make it even more fun. It's the kind of toy kids enjoy using on their own, or with friends/family.

The Perfect Gift for Any Orlando Magic Fan

My child has been huge on basketball for a few years now.  Some days it seems like all we do is live and breathe basketball, which is fine by me. I enjoy watching him and appreciate that he has such a passion for the game. One thing he hasn't done though, is see an NBA game. Sounds like a perfect gift idea in the making to me, yes? :)

Perfectly Pretty Stocking Stuffers: 7th Heaven Peel-Off Masks including Fancy Peels

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.




Stuffing the Christmas Stockings used to be so easy. I grabbed a few toys, maybe a DVD or two, the requisite candy tubes and the chocolate oranges (there is a price to pay if I forget the chocolate oranges) and called it a day. Now that the kids are grown, they still appreciate a stocking (especially that chocolate orange) but they are also looking for more high quality items than dollar toys picked up on a whim. My daughter likes to find beef jerky (but that's another story) and beauty items. Enter 7th-Heaven Peel Masks.

Airfree Air Purifiers Offering Black Friday and Cyber Monday Special Deals

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Well, we are fast approaching Black Friday, and people are making their lists of items they'd like to look out or try to get for big savings. Air Purifiers are always on that list for me. Though they are worth their weight in gold, high quality ones are pricey, so finding ways to save is a big deal. Airfree always comes through with phenomenal Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. They have done so again this year. They last a good long time too, making them a value for the amount of money that you're going to spend. I have had one for a few years, and I use it almost daily.

Spending Thanksgiving at the Caravelle Premier Family and Golf Resort in Myrtle Beach

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


We are staying at the Caravelle Resort during the holiday break, and in addition to being thrilled to be located directly on the beach (what a view we have from the 12th-floor!), we are also delighted to be in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina for the first time ever. So far, I love everything about this place. The people are friendly, the city is bustling with things to do, yet there is also quite a bit of rural land with wild animals to see out and about, cotton (among other things) growing in the fields, and of course the beach life, that is a culture in and of itself. 

THE RATES ARE SO AFFORDABLE!

One thing that I think might really surprise you, especially this time of year, is how affordable it is to stay at the Caravelle Resort. Check out their website, put in your dates and be amazed at how reasonably priced this vacation would be for you as well. Myrtle Beach is the perfect place to take the family, or even to go solo, or on a romantic getaway. With prices like these, it's definitely worth considering. Booking right now might be a great idea, because in addition to the already great prices, there will be big, not-to-be-missed savings between Black Friday and Cyber Monday (and wouldn't a surprise getaway be a great gift idea for the holidays?!).

Black Friday Savings on INVISASOX

I always wonder how so many people can wear shoes with no socks and be perfectly okay with it. I'm not talking about sandals or flip-flops, I'm talking about athletic or dress shoes. For me, that rubbing creates blisters or worn out skin. I have to wear socks. Back in the day, it was perfectly acceptable to wear pantyhose with your dress shoes (yeah, I am definitely aging myself with that one). Today, that's a terribly outdated look, so what is a person to do if they want to wear dress shoes (heels or flats) but don't want sweaty feet (some material on shoes makes your feet sweat if you don't have on socks), blisters, and the like? Invisasox to the rescue! These thin socks are comfortable and sturdy but not too thick (you can't wear thick socks with many dress shoes) and designed in such a way that they won't show! Now I don't mind my socks showing with my athletic shoes, but I do see a lot of people who don't wear them at all. They probably would appreciate the Invisasox too.

INVISASOX is a startup out of UCF bringing the world a redesigned no show sock that’s as comfortable to wear as it is well made and functional, to help fight the frustrations so many people have with the current no show socks on the market.

They have focused on: 1. Breathable cotton & spandex material blend that comfortably hugs the foot. 2. True invisible cut that's comfortable for everyday, but always stays hidden. 3. Fail proof no-slip design via the unique mesh heel grip and 35% spandex fabric. 

In addition, they make them in eight sizes so everyone can get the perfect fit.

A New Twist on the Tooth Fairy: The Toothless Monster Set

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



The Toothless Monster is a tooth fairy experience like no other: when your child loses a tooth, the monster gains one, permanently. This is a wonderful concept because after all, a friend in need, is a friend indeed!

Teleflora Holiday Bouquets

Teleflora delivers hand-made beautiful holiday bouquets right to your door, or anyone else's door, that you might want to send one to as well. These are a perfect way to decorate any vanity, counter or table. They are also perfect for dressers, which is where I sometimes like to put mine, only because the bedroom seems to be the only room we don't decorate for the holiday season. Having a big, beautiful piece of bright in the room that is festive, makes me very happy.

Playmobil Advent Calendar and Christmas Bakery Building Set

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



I get so excited this time of year when I see the advent calendars from Playmobil in the stores. Not only are they created with the sturdy, high quality pieces known to the brand, but they also have seasonal themes, which makes them a great way to add to the magic that is already intertwined with so much of what we do, this time of the year. Imagine your child's joy as he or she gets to select one item each day, counting down to the big day (December 25th).  We purchase an advent calendar for the kids every single holiday, and this year, my youngest will receive Christmas in the Forest (seen above), which is one of five themes Playmobil has available this year.

2019 Holiday Gift Guide


A lot of people are e-mailing to ask about the Holiday Gift Guide. It is a work in progress, and I do keep adding suggestions throughout the holiday season, so please feel free to check it out more than once.

Almost a Year Later and we STILL Love our SnoofyBee Unique Changing Station

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Some things are too good to keep to yourself. This little package is going to be one of those things. It's something you may not have known you needed, but if you have a little one in diapers, once you've tried it, you'll know that you certainly do! I wrote about one last year for the Holiday Gift Guide, and wanted to do it again this year because it's proven invaluable in our house.  Well, my daughter's house, but shes's till mine, so you know, by association, and all that good stuff. 😊

I am talking about the SnoofyBee, which is a simply, but intelligently-made, fail-proof way to change baby's diaper at home or in public, with zero mess! One try and you'll be sold! We are, and as you'll see at the end of the post, my newest baby granddaughter is sold too!

Robert Morris says Take the Day Off!

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Not too long ago, Robert Morris was at a church a couple of cities away from us and we went there instead of to our normal church because we wanted to hear him. I've seen him on TV, and always enjoy hearing him speak. I hadn't seen him on a stage though, live, nor had I until now read one of his books. "Take the Day Off: Receiving God's Gift of Rest" is his newest book and it lived up to the hype I had set for up. It was good!

Universal Home Entertainment has Holiday Blu-Ray and DVD Favorites

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



It's closing in on Thanksgiving, and then all of the hustle and bustle of Christmas will start (in many places it's started already). One thing we love to do this time of year is watch holiday movies. We have our classic favorites like the Grinch and we always love Veggie Tales. Something fairly new to us, though it's not really new to many, is the Holiday Stories Collection

Disney Stories in Beautiful Keepsake Books

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.


Do you ever outgrow Disney stories? I think not. When I was thumbing through these books I will admit it was exciting to see Alice in Wonderland, Aladdin, Peter Pan, etc. dancing inside the Disney Stories for 3-year-olds. What was really surprising though, was that the Disney Stories for 2-year-olds was full of stories I've never even heard of before, and I've been reading Disney books for decades.

Advent Book: How Winston Delivered Christmas

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



How Winston Delivered Christmas: My photo cannot do justice to this book!! It is a large, gorgeous hardback that is chock full of wonderful things to celebrate for the advent. Can you believe it's about time to start this kind of thing already??? I surely need to get a move on to get ready for the big day because I know it is going to be here before we know it. This book is one way to help add to the holiday joy and excitement in your home.

Florida Offers More Than Beaches


Most tourists know that Florida coastal cities offer amazing beaches, water activities and seafood feasts. However, there is much more to the state than people realize. You could spend weeks travelling and be amazed at the amount it has to offer. The following are items to see that you probably won’t see on a tourist map.

Well, most people know that we have quite a few little ones in our family. That means school supplies are always welcome, even more so when they have a really adorable theme.

3 Winners: Win a Paint by Numbers Kit

paint by numbers

Now that I am thinking about it, I don't think my youngest son has ever done a paint-by-numbers kit. That's so weird to consider because I loved doing them when I was a child, and I distinctly remember my older 3 doing them when they were children as well. So...guess what one of the things is, that the tween will be getting for Christmas this year?!  I bet he'll like it. It will be something fun for us to do together. What about you, would you like a kit to paint too?

Lexington Law Can Help You Repair Your Credit Score with Visa $100 GC Giveaway

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.



Lexington Law is a credit repair service that can help you if you have made your own errors, or if someone else has made your 'errors' for you. In the latter situations, they can get most situations cleared up in a fairly easy manner. If a company, for example, reports you late, but you were never late, and you are a member of Lexington Law's credit repair service, you will know about it instantly via their e-mail alert system. This just happened to me, and I was mortified to see someone reported me late with a payment. Fortunately, I instantly knew about the error and was able to contact the company that noted it as late and get that immediately rectified. Thank you, Lexington Law.
