Last Minute Gift Idea! Tickets to The Piano Guys!


Looking for the perfect last minute gift idea? This one is so good, they won't even know you didn't start shopping until Christmas was very near. ;)  In fact, it's so thoughtful it might even end up being their favorite holiday gift, and they'll get to use it next year, so it's like getting something twice! I'm talking about tickets to see The Piano Guys in concert. They are on sale now, and we've got our seats reserved! That is something I am so thrilled to say!! I love to watch them play. Their enthusiasm and pure joy is contagious. It's nice when people love what they do. And their talent is undeniable. THIS is going to be a fun show and it will be the first time I've seen them live (woohoo!). 

The video I put up is my very favorite Christmas song that they do. There are others that are fantastic but this song was my introduction to The Piano Guys and the reason that I fell in love with them, so it will always be my very favorite. I hope you hit play and that you enjoy it too.

Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas. I was hoping to get around to the blogs to say hello and happy, happy, but so much is going on this time of year...but I'm thinking of you though, and will stop in before the new year. I hope everyone enjoys their holiday time!! 

Lugz for Christmas EVERY YEAR!

Disclosure: I received a product or a discount code to use towards the purchase of one. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

It seems like so many families have those items they buy every single year for members of their friends/family circle, and so without even thinking about it they become a tradition of sorts. For us, it's the Lugz Boots. I have 3 grown children who love boots and this brand is second to none for style, function and customer service. As if that was not enough to fall in love with them, they also donate to charity. For every purchase made of their men's and women's Convoy styles between now and December 31st, Lugz will donate $1.80 to City Harvest (up to $10,000), an organization that helps feed those who are living in New York and are hungry.

This is a Florida Snowman: Unique Snow-mandarins Craft Idea from Halos

 Disclosure: I received a free product(s) or a discount code to use towards a purchase from @halosfun

Wonderful Halos mandarins – the sweet, seedless, easy-to-peel snack with added benefits of vitamin C for the winter months recommended a DIY Wonderful Halos Snowman-darin craft. and we decided to give it a try! After all, in Florida, the only snowmen we are going to see this year, are the ones we made with these delicious mandarins (I'm not sad about that!) and the best part is that after we were done, we got to eat them (I wasn't sad about that either). 😍

Ongoing Air Shipments! No Price Hikes and Receive for the Holidays!

Disclosure: I received sample products or a discount code to apply towards purchase. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Ty Warner, owner of the largest manufacturer of soft toys in the world, has financed more than 150 air shipment flights since October, and the shipments continue. With typical cargo flight costing anywhere from $1.5 to $2 million dollars, business pages are full of articles about the exorbitant cost of shipping sparking price increases. That is not the case with Ty as they are proceeding without any price increases. See general collection here Christmas collection here

Consumers, retailers and even a jolly North Pole resident are discovering how one toymaker is taking extraordinary measures and airlifting to the U.S. for quick distribution. Boys and girls awaiting snuggly Beanie Babies or Beanie Boos will not be disappointed thanks to Ty.

The Waltons Homecoming! Great Stocking Stuffer Gift Idea!

Disclosure: Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Anyone remember the Waltons? That was one of my family's most favorite shows when I was growing up, and it was tied as the number one favorite for my mom (tied with Little House on the Prairie) so it holds a special place in my very nostalgic heart. If you have Waltons' lovers in your family too, this could make a great holiday gift surprise!

The Best Place to Buy Calendars: Great Gift Idea!

Disclosure: I have received free products or a discount code to apply towards a purchase. All opinions stated are genuine and my own.

Once Thanksgiving passes, it hits me that the new year is almost here. It is also the time of year where I shop for my new wall calendars. I've heard some people say they don't use them anymore, but everyone I know still has them and uses them. For me, it's the pictures!! I love to get a wall calendar with pictures of Italy on it to hang in my kitchen each year. It didn't use to matter to me where I got the calendar from, but you know, once you find a place you love, it tends to become the only place you shop because there's no reason to look elsewhere when you've found exactly what you want and need. For me, it's Workman Publishing. For the last several years, I have gotten my calendar full of Italy pictures from them and I love it so much. It reminds me of places I have been and places I still want to go. Italy has more places in it than any other, that are resting firmly on my future 'to do' travel list. My #1 place that I still want to see is Venice!!
