Do you do new years resolutions?


As I became an adult I realized that resolutions for me are pointless. I would set unrealistic goals and never ever follow through with them. I decided a couple years ago that I would just set goals as I go. It is much easier for me to set them as I go than to set a lot of them at the beginning of the year. 






I am definitely not perfect the way I am. I have a lot of stuff that I have to work on but it will take much longer than a year to get where I want to be.  I do have goals that I plan to work on more.

1.) I have a goal of reading my bible once a day and getting closer to God.
2.) I have a goal to do well in school 
3.) I have a goal to spend time with my family and make memories and start traditions with Christine
4.) I have a goal of getting my finances in order. I have been working on this for quite a while.
5.) As a family we have a goal of setting up a savings account for Christine for college.
6.) I have a goal to grow my blog as well. I want more followers for it.


My list is not long but it grows as I take new steps in my life. How long is your list??








Wow, wow, wow!

I am so sorry I have not been blogging but I have been so busy with Christmas and life period. I feel like the lady in this picture!
 I am so glad Christmas is over and that stress has been taken off of my shoulders but now I have to start planning Christine's first birthday. I should have started already but haven't. 
All I know right now is that her theme will be cupcakes, it will be at my Mom's house, we are ordering decorations off a website, and my sister in law is making the smash cake and regular cake. I thank God for her and her talent. She can do hair and make awesome cakes. We don't even know what we are getting her for a gift yet. It is going to creep up on me and I will have nothing done just watch. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a happy new year! We are staying home and drinking some wine. It should be interesting because we have never had wine. Expect a blog change today too. What are you doing for new years eve??

Bloggers needed if interested!

COMMENTS



This is somewhere I would to go on vacation someday. With time share rentals I can afford to go here when we have vacation time. I just want to go to any sunny beach and relax. You can rent a room on a resort starting at just $21 a night! Not everywhere will have $21 rooms but you just have to look around the easy to use website. 


I know most families can not afford to go out and take a nice vacation but with time share rentals anyone can afford to take a break. There are places right out your back door to all the way across the country. Even the Bahamas has time share rentals available.

I am going to be giving you the opportunity to win a two year membership to one of the best time share rental site out there. All you have to do is enter on the rafflecopter below and you will be on your way to finding your dream vacation. Good luck!

Healthy Surprise helps you snack better

0
COMMENTS



I love to eat snacks but do not like that most snacks out there are really unhealthy. I found Healthy Surprise to help me solve the unhealthy snack problem. They send you a box of snacks each month at a subscription price. The box is packed with healthy vegan,natural,gluten free, and soy free snacks. I have never been so excited to get a package as I was when I got this box. I did not know what to try first but I did enjoy everything that was in the box.


My favorite snack was the cocomo corn. It was so yummy!  There was also some ranch flavored kale, a Thats it bar, some happy hemp, and lots of other snacks. Here are a few:





I really enjoyed trying the snacks and sharing with my family. I am glad they liked them too. If you are interested in subscribing and getting a monthly box go to Healthy Surprise. There are different subscriptions to chose from so be sure to check it out. Get out there and start snacking.





***Disclosure: I was give a complimentary box from Healthy Surprise to facilitate my review***

Need a Last Minute Gift idea?

0
COMMENTS




I found an awesome new app that can help you get some last minute gifts. The new app is called Yiftee. You are able to send a friend or family memeber a digital mastercard to a merchant in their area. You can do this on the go on your smart phone or even at home on the computer.
 All you have to do is download the app to your phone or go to Yiftee. You will then chose who you want to send your gift to and it will bring up merchants to chose from in their area to chose from. All you have to do after that is build your gift, add a note, pay, and send it to them. It is awesome that you can send gifts on the go now and it is easy to do. 
Since it is the holiday season this was the perfect time for them to nationwide. If you have any last minute gifts to get I recommend you try out Yiftee!

Juppy Baby Walker Review/Giveaway

5
COMMENTS




Those of you that have children know how hard it can be to teach them to walk. You have to hold their hands and bend your back to be at their level. The Juppy baby walker solves the back bending problem. The Juppy goes on your baby's torso and has straps for the parent to hold on to. This makes it much easier to teach your child to walk. The Juppy has many positive reviews and I definitely loved it. I am tall so it hurts to have to bend down to hold Christine's hands to walk. I loved the Juppy after the first time using it. The good thing is, Christine likes it too. She thinks it is fun to be in it and walk with mommy or daddy. We had our Juppy personalized with her name as you can see. 



Christine has so much fun when she is in it. Sometimes she just jumps up and down instead of walking so we walk and she starts to go too. The Juppy has helped her a lot. She actually started taking her first steps yesterday and I really think it is because we have been working with her in the Juppy. It comes in pink, black, and blue. Christine's is black. 




The Juppy even comes with a carrier bag to put it in. If you are interested in purchasing one vistit Juppy Baby Walker Website

If you would like to enter to win one I will be doing a giveaway below. There will be one winner and you will get your choice of color and name you want on it! Enter below on the rafflecopter. Good Luck!

Stella Artois: Chalice not a glass

Did you know that taste of a beer depends on how you pour it?? I had no idea until I got the Stella Artois campaign from BzzAgent. I got a Chalice to use at my leisure and I had to use it the first night I had it. I did the nine step process, which I will explain later, and the beer tasted much better than just out of the bottle. You really need to try this at home.Watch the video on the nine steps below:


Pretty easy to do and fun to practice too.


This is before (obviously)


Then we enjoyed it!
