May your Christmas dreams come true,
And when Christmas is over,

It's All His Fault

There you have's his fault that I'm so darned happy these days. His fault that I am now spoiled rotten. You see that smile on my face? Yep, that is his fault also!

Our big day is February 25, 2012. Just 67 days to go. It's going by so fast, yet can't get here fast enough.
This is the chapel we will be getting married at. It's set in a little village from the civil war era. His mom found this place and I think we both fell in love immediately. Everything out there is incredible.
We will also be able to have the reception right there. This is incredibly convenient since I have family that will be coming from out of town and won't know their way around.

This little girl (or not so little) is so much happier than she has been in a long time. I love how much she laughs these days, how much more she feels at home! Nothing makes me happier than to see everyone I love happy and smiling!

I hope everyone is prepared for Christmas. We will actually be finishing up today, I didn't really know what to get Lexi and I hate trying to go shopping for someone and not know what to get. It's just too frustrating for me. I thought she'd be the easiest to buy for...turns out she was the hardest for me to buy for.

A New Deal Every Day

Love to find a great deal every single day? How about a new deal every day? No More Rack offers new deals every day that post at 12pm, so no staying up late to get that steal of a deal. I love this site and can personally guarantee that this is not a nomorerack scam. Just recently I got a $125 gift certificate for NuMe hair style products for just $20 that's an 84% discount, better yet I had store credit that I used to pay for the gift certificate. So essentially I got a $125 gift certificate for no money out of pocket. Now that is a deal that I love!

NoMoreRack posts 8 new deals every day at noon. Discounts can range from 50% off up to 100% off and shipping is always $2 per item. Just sign up on the site for your account and like them on Facebook to keep track of new deals. They also post a sneak peek of their deals on Facebook every day.

Nomorerack offers deals from jewelry to home decor and even magazine subscriptions. One of today's offers was New York Minute Limited Edition Clock for just $38.00. The retail price on the clock was $250, giving it's members a discount of 85%. I love this site and always keep a reminder to check their deals every day. The savings alone is worth checking out. The deals are real, the savings deep and the nomorerack reviews are always positive. Shipping has always been fast and packages arrive in good condition.

All you have to do is go to the site sign up for an account and start saving money. Nomorerack also allows you to simply log in through Facebook for easy log in. You can keep track of all your orders and if you want save your information for further purchases.

To make sweet deals even sweeter, they are also offering insanity deals. The savings on these deals are simply insane! Insanity deals display in a purple box with savings up to 95%. A past insanity deal was a Canon EOS Rebel XS SLR for only $19.77. Where else can you find a deal like that?

One of my favorite card games to play is BlackJack. There is nothing like a fun night with friends and family playing card games and I always seem to fall back on my favorite. It's a game of luck, but also one of strategy.

It's also one of the easiest to learn, and being the competitive person that I am I want to learn better techniques at kicking some Black Jack butt. Until recently I didn't know there was a website dedicated to teaching people just that. teaches the basics of the game and also some strategy tips. We all know that in Black Jack you need to know one number, 21 and it means everything. You must know when to play and when to stay. It's also crucial to know Black Jack lingo which you will learn as well. Knowing how to play your cards when you go to a casino or are playing a friendly game with your friends can mean everything if your competitive. is one of the largest online poker sites and offers many different games. This site also offers a list of sites that you can play online, from pay to play sites to play for free sites. I love to play on the free sites to prepare myself for those nights of fun with the family. Be sure to also check out their current promotions!

Better Nights

Thanks for the guest post by Esteban Vinson

I love going out in the evenings after work but I never liked coming home to an empty house. Last week I ordered an alarm system from homeSECURITYfamily.COM and coming home feels like I never left. I always set it before I go anywhere—I even set it when I am at home. I did learn that I can’t leave my cat out to roam around the house if I set the motion detector. I learned that lesson the hard way when she snuck out of my bedroom one night while I was sleeping. Talk about a rude awakening! I’m not sure who was more scared—me or her. Once I determined she was the culprit and found her under the bed in the guest room and got my heart to slow down, I went to bed without the motion sensor on and haven’t had any problems since. In fact, I even sleep better. Talk about more bang for your buck! Maybe they should advertise “better sleeping habits” as one of the advantages!
