Win Family 4 pack Tickets to Santa at Stroh

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Picture it-Christmas tree lit, frosted window panes that give way to a winter wonderland view, Amy Grant’s Tender Tennessee Christmas on Pandora conjuring up a potpourri of childhood Christmas memories, retro Santa mug filled with fresh brewed coffee and children…children interrupting every other sip with random inquiries and requests….

“Mom, I’m hungry!”-and why shouldn’t they be it has been an entire 10 minutes since they last ate!

“Mom, can we sled down the stairs?”- Really!?! Boys!

“MOM…Mom…Toilet’s clogged!”- Fabulous!

“Mom, it was an accident…there’s blood!!”- And that will do it! End of peaceful Christmas moment. “Here I come….what size band-aide?”

Ahh…the first full day of Winter Break! lol!

How quickly one forget how beautiful and irritating Christmas Break can be, it’s kinda like childbirth, all you remember in the end is the beauty, the miracle, and magical moments. So much so that you can’t wait till the next one! And then it happens, day one of Christmas Break and just like that first contraction of the second birth, it all comes flooding back to memory. This time I am going to have a plan, and unlike my birth plan this is one I can guarantee will come to fruition.

I literally have my planner out right now and am planning at least one outing a day until Christmas. I figure after Christmas they will at least have new toys and games to play, books to read, memberships to venture out and use, etc. I should also stipulate that when planning these excursions I am keeping two things in mind, budget and the novelty of the experience. And that is where Santa at Stroh comes in…

Talk about a unique experience, when was the last time you attended a basketball game with your kiddos and got to see & get pictures with Santa for FREE before tip and/or during half time?

Here are the DEETS:

Game Dates & Times: Wednesday December 21st @ 7pm and Thursday, December 22nd @12pm

Location: 1535 E Wooster St, Bowling Green, OH 43403

Cost: $11-$13 (Kids 12 and under are FREE)

Giveaway: Perfect Christmas Gifts (or stocking stuffer) for Girls and Kids!

My latest obsessions, headbands & literary classics! Headbands because I adore a little something that makes it look like I actually tried to do my hair, lol! It doesn’t get any better than a messy bun and a headband. headbands

And literary classics, the kiddos and I have decided that from now on in the evenings, in addition to saying the Rosary we will be reading a chapter or two out of a classic book that has also been made into a movie. Thus, once we have finished reading said book we can have a family movie night and then discuss how the book and movie differed.

thelittleprince

I am happy to state that we followed through and our first book we completed was The Little Prince. Last Friday we watched the movie and then discussed the similarities and differences once everyone stopped crying, yes, it was that good! As my son stated, in-between tears, “that was the best book and movie I have ever heard and seen”. I am not going to lie, that put a huge smile on this momma’s face.

Our next book, Treasure Island….

And check this out, in addition to the book and movie combo, Marzipantz Knit & Crochet Dolls has this adorable Pete the Pirate Doll that would be the perfect addition!!

Perfectly Posh Review & Giveaway

These gems arrived two weeks ago & my life hasn’t been the same ever since!

perfectlyposh3

Don’t know what Perfectly Posh is? Don’t worry, I was totally clueless too!

Perfectly Posh is fun, hip, & responsible papering…..

For as long as a girl has needed to care for her skin, she could find FUN products and she could find GOOD products, but it was difficult to find products that were both fun AND good. Perfectly Posh offers products you’ll feel good about putting on your skin. They feature:

  • Pampering products made in the USA
  • Gentle, natural ingredients
  • No parabens, paraffins, sulfates, lanolin, or fillers
  • Lots of natural butters and essential oils
  • Many vegan options
  • No animal testing

(Source)

 

You are probably thinking, that’s all nice and all, but does it provide real results? I know I was a sceptic. Let’s be honest, some of those “responsible” products out there just don’t deliver that girly, I just got pampered, my skin is so smooth, silky, and smells amazing result we want. Ladies, we bust our butts all day, we deserve not to be disappointed by our beauty products!

perfectlyposh4

So I opted to take one for the team…after a long day of doing everything for everyone else (I beat my all-time laundry record that day and completed, as in, washed, dried, folded, & put away 7 loads of laundry…I am having the trophy made-up as we speak. Ha-ha!) I gave Perfectly Posh a try.

perfectlyposh

 

Smashing Good Pumpkin Face & Body Clay was the first Perfectly Posh product I tried. Thoughts that ran through my head as I applied the Clay to my face….

This smells amazing!

Is this stuff edible?

Goes on smooth

Ooh….tingles a little…I like it.

Ahhh….is this what a Spa experience feels like? I. AM. SO. RELAXED.

Maybe I will lay down….what if I fall asleep with this on?

And then sadly it was time to wash it off. But no need to fret because I followed it up with another Perfectly Posh product!! I applied the Night & Day moisturizer and nothing but SMOOTH!! Smooth as a baby’s bottom and best of all it is Vegan and has NO petrolatum in it. In fact, the first two ingredients, water & organic olive oil!! Talk about winning! Yep, this momma is officially hooked!!!

What I like best is the fact that while frequent trips to a high end Spa are not in this SAHM’s budget Perfectly Posh products are and they deliver similar results, no joke! But you don’t have to take my word for it, give it a try yourself. Give Jen a call today, because you deserve to be pampered!
