Been So Busy

How is your Christmas coming?

If you ask me, I am quite excited about it. Last year, me and my kids were in North Dakota to visit my mom. But this year, due to time constraints, we'll just be home for Christmas. And the good news is, my mom is traveling to visit us this year. So I'm happy about that.

My Christmas shopping is almost done and I've managed to use the same Christmas decor items I bought from four years ago. I mean, not that they're all that old, because every year I try to add more items as long as it fits my budget. Believe it or not, I got a lot of my Christmas ornaments and decor from our local thrift shop and the Salvation Army. Yesterday, I got out of the SA with a Christmas basket for one of my coffee tables in our living room full of nice ornaments and I only shelled out $20! Good stuff. :)

Anyway, I have started looking around for blog giveaways online and I found this one fantastic mom blog called Hip Mama's Place. I am entering the $100 gift card giveaway the blogger (Jocelyn) is hosting for this fancy-schmunshy gift store called Cambria Cove. Gosh, if I win this gift card it would be like heaven-sent! God knows how limited my budget is for Christmas gift shopping this year. So I'm crossing my fingers I win this fab contest! :)

Sorry I have been so busy lately. But I will write more soon!

Early Christmas Shopping

I am at work, but already I am thinking of doing my Christmas shopping tomorrow. So I'm here making my Christmas list.

I have a few ideas on what to give my kids and my honey for Christmas. I also have to find us a new Christmas tree this year. So I might go check out the local KMart after I get off work today. I heard they have some good deals on Christmas stuff. I love shopping and decorating for Christmas. It's always fun!

Hello and Welcome!

I'm new to all things blogging. My bestfriend Nicole seem to think I am a little left out with all these online technologies.

Well, I'm going to be brief for this first post.

I will be blogging about my daily life- motherhood, my three wonderful kids, being a single mom, my wonderful and silly life partner (Tim), deals and giveaway finds, etcetera...anything that comes to mind.

Christmas is coming up so I will be very busy in the next few weeks, but will be sure to squeeze in time to write here as much as I can.

Thanks for visiting!
