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)

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.
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.
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!!
This is why Marzipantz Knit & Crochet Dolls shop is my pick for the perfect Christmas Gifts (or add on/stocking stuffer) for girls and kids!
Total disclosure, I have already purchased one of Marzipantz dolls, Saint Kateri for my daughter’s birthday and it is absolutely adorable!!! I am such a sucker for a book, movie, doll combination for kiddo’s birthdays and Christmas gifts.
How lucky am I to have found a store that feeds both my obsessions, headbands & literary characters?
Luck was meant to be shared! 😉
Marzipantz Knit & Crochet dolls is giving away one of their awesome headbands (winner picks which one)! You can keep it all for yourself or use it as a Christmas gift, your choice…all you have to do to be entered to win is:

These gems arrived two weeks ago & my life hasn’t been the same ever since!
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
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!
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.
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!
ADDED BONUS!! GIVEAWAY!!!
Enter to win this awesome Posh To Meet You set! Includes Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme, a Chunk, and a Lip Balm! (Valued at $19)
To enter simply complete the following….
- Join Jen’s VIP group on FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/102254036794263/
- Share this post on Facebook
- Peruse Jen’s Perfectly Posh site; click here & then post a comment to this blog post stating which Perfectly Posh product you are most excited about trying out.
Winner will be randomly selected March 15th @11:59pm & posted on the blog and blog Facebook page the 16th. Best of luck ladies!

This morning I find myself deeply conflicted. I am sitting her, sipping coffee, and literally daydreaming about leggings, yes, I said leggings! I fear I may lose all self-control. My willpower is weakening by the hour. If I don’t give them away soon I am busting those suckers open and wearing them!!! You are probably thinking I have officially lost it, and perhaps I have, but I don’t want to go back to the way life was pre-LulaRoe!! My obsession started a couple days ago.
The leggings arrived in an ordinary, kinda plain, quiet, packaging, totally the opposite of the items held within. I tore that sucker open like a kid on Christmas morning. No tip-toeing around the adhesive side gracefully opening it, nope, when I was done with it you couldn’t even make out what it was originally. But I couldn’t help myself, I could hear the loud screams of the stylish leggings held within, I had to set them free, I had to see the funky, fun, fashionable designs! It was love at first sight! But wait, it gets better!
I tried them on and it was unlike any experience I have ever had with a pair of leggings! They were so unbelievably comfortable!! They felt the way my naked legs used to feel before I got married, when I would spend a crap load of money on fancy razors, shaving creams, and lotions, when I used to shave my entire legs. They were so silky smooth, like butter!! Clearly this was a match made in heaven because only the angels could have created something this magnificent! I never ended up taking that first pair off, I couldn’t go back, I had experienced comfort on a heavenly level; there was no way I was going back! I wore them all day and not once did I have to tug, adjust, or remove a wedgie. I was officially hooked and it wasn’t just me, they also have them for little girls. My little fashionista has request her entire wardrobe be LulaRoe!! (She slept in her legging, I had to beg her to take them off for bath time).
So you are probably wondering why the conflict? These LulaRoe legging sound amazing, why would I be remotely conflicted? Because I have two sweet pair sitting up on my nightstand right now, they look amazing, feel amazing, but they are not for me, I am going to share….I. AM. GOING. TO. SHARE!….I might still be trying to convince myself of that fact! I am not a selfish person, honest, I share everything, clothes, food, house, everything but my pillow & toothbrush (those are sacred!), but I fear I may have to add my LulaRoe to that short list! You can’t judge if you have never tired a pair, you just wouldn’t understand! Thus, I wasn’t going to run this giveaway until next week but my willpower is weakening by the hour! They are just so comfortable, stylish, compliment attractors, etc. Oh the agony! They have got to go, now!
Here is a pic of these sweet treats….talk about eye candy! Lol!
Both are sized Tall & Curvy, recommended for sizes 10-22. If you have long legs you are gonna love these, they actually cover your entire leg not just to the mid-calve.
To enter the giveaway for 2 sweet pairs of LulaRoe leggings complete the following steps:
- Go look in the mirror, smile, (there, that’s better) now repeat these words “Lookin good beautiful!”
- Share this post with a friend and include the following message, “You are amazing! Saw these and thought of you, you deserve something stylish & comfortable!”
- Lastly, post a comment below sharing your favorite fashion trend EVER!!
Winner will be randomly selected January 12th @ 11:59pm and winner’s name will be posted on the blog and Facebook page the 13th. Good Luck!! (giveaway limited to US states, excludes Alaska & Hawaii)
I am off to do some more shopping! CLICK HERE to Shop Jacque & Cindy’s LulaRoe Group. What’s on my list? Why more leggings of course, thinking I need one for each day of the week and my little fashionista needs at least one if not three twirly dresses!! Eee!! We are going to be styling this year, 2016 won’t know what hit it! Lol!
Looking for that perfect gift of experience to give this Christmas? One that doesn’t require your child/grandchild having to wait until spring break (sure a trip sounds like fun but in their eyes spring break is decades away!!)!? This one delivers a quick turnaround and is something the entire family will enjoy (kids and kids at heart). Tickets to see the world famous Harlem Globetrotters!!!
The Harlem Globetrotters, featuring some of the greatest athletes and entertainers on the planet, will bring their unrivaled family show to Toledo’s Huntington Center Dec. 27th @ 3pm!! This show promises incredible ball handling wizardry, amazing rim-rattling dunks and trick shots, side-splitting comedy & unequaled on-court fan interaction!
And you won’t want to miss the pre-show event! BE sure to get your MAGIC PASS for the pre-show 1:30-2pm. You can actually spend time on the court with the Globetrotters, shooting, trying ball tricks, and photo opportunities!!!
I for one know my son is going to lose his mind when he receives this gift (FYI: looking to have something for your kiddos to open along with the tickets? I am contemplating sneakers and/or a basketball).
