Holiday Favorites

I have never given Glade candles a chance but I am glad I have now. They smell so good and they are cheap! Now I have only smelled two of them and bought both. I have burned both and they smell up the house but not over the top strong smell.


Gingerbread Jingle


Sparkling Spruce smells like a Christmas tree

Another Holiday favorite is Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Tea. I like it because it has a little sugar cookie flavor without the calories. Dang calories why do they have to be in sugar cookies.


I have not tried this Chapstick because I can not find it. I might have to order it online.


I have tried these little gems. Oh my they taste like Thin Mints. They are amazing.


Go out and buy these amazing things. They are all Shawna worthy!

Advent Calendar

This year instead of filling the advent calendar with candy or money it is filled with notes. This is so much cheaper and more loving. My boys love to open up the calendar and today they opened the note that said play checkers with mom. They both had a smile on their face. I put simple things like take a walk with mom. I remember when I was younger my mom had a jar of notes that had things like taking a walk with mom to the pond. For some reason it was so much fun and exciting for me. So you dont have to have money to make a little kid smile. Hopefully my boys will remember this more then eating a piece of candy.

Alternative to My Coffee

I need to slow down on the coffee every morning. I need to slow down on the sugar I put in it. I bought this tea the other day and love it. The best thing is I dont have to add milk or sugar. Win!

It is Almost That Time

Start saving your money because it is almost that time! My grandma always had the big Sears catalog book for all of us grandkids. I loved looking through each page skipping over the ugly boy toys. Usually whatever was pink I wanted. I was and still am a girly girl. Now I shop for boy toys and here are what my boys are wanting.

Logan is easy because he is still my little boy. He just wants toys! Army toys are his favorite.

Blaine is more grown up. Here are a couple things he wants

A Little Fall Decorating

I love fall decorating! I don't have a ton of decorations but honestly I like the clean look better.

DIY Donuts

Super easy donuts.


2 cans Pillsbury canned biscuits.

Vegetable oil

Powdered sugar


I dont really measure anything. Just put some oil in a med size sauce pan. Heat the oil until it looks hot. Make a hole in your biscuit and drop into oil. You want it to look a golden brown color on both sides. Once browned put donut on paper towels. To make icing use about a cup of powdered sugar with about a tablespoon of milk. You can make it how you want really. Dip your donuts in the icing and your done.
