Countdown to Christmas Giveaways - Day 1

"It's the most wonderful time of the year!"

I can just hear the smooth sounds of Andy Williams belting out this fabulous and appropriate song. As the season of craziness, hustle and bustle is upon us, Shannon, Jane & I wanted to take this opportunity to add some fun to your day! And we hope you will play along.

Each day this week, we will be hosting a giveaway on each of our blogs. The 3 items tie together somehow and a single winner will win all 3 items being given away that day. To be eligible to win all 3 items, you have to leave a comment on each of our 3 giveaway posts for the day.

Today, my featured item of the trio is one of my favorite items.

Introducing Bath & Body Works Body Cream in my favorite holiday scent of Winter Candy Apple!

Now, here's how you enter today's giveaway.

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me "What is your favorite holiday scent?"

2. Head over to Shannon's Nut House and Jane's Jungle to see what else is in today's giveaway and make sure you leave a comment on each of their posts.

3. Cross your fingers and check your email in the next couple of days as we'll contact the winner by email. (So, make sure you've left a way for us to contact you from your comment)

Good luck and Happy Holidays!!

A True Thanksgiving

It's been a whirlwind week.

The joy of visiting with family that I haven't seen in a while.

The warmth of a home full of friends, family and laughter.

The feeling of satisfaction after cooking a large meal and seeing smiling faces and full tummies from those around you.

These are all things that I count among my blessings, but sadly, there are many out there who don't get to experience a fraction of this.

  • In 2008, a staggering 49.1 million people lived in food insecure households.
  • Of that number, 16.7 million of those people were children.
Statistics like this really have me thinking about what I can do to help.

My buddy Shannon inspired Jane & I to give to our local area food bank, but I want my readers to have a hand in this too. Here's what you can do to participate!

1. Leave a comment on this post. Any comment will do! For each comment that I receive on this post through December 4th, I will donate 1 canned good or boxed food item to my local food bank.

2. Host your own "Comments for Cans" drive on your blog and donate to your local food bank. And please let me know that you're participating so I can leave you a comment!

Thank you so much for helping me give back to my community and I hope this inspires you to give back in any way that you can. Happy Thanksgiving!

Monday Morning Eye Candy

Happy Monday Morning! So, my efforts to get back on the blogging track last week weren't exactly successful. And so begins another week and another try to get this train back on track. Let's start with a little inspiration, er, motivation. Yeah.

This week I'm highlighting some leading men who have movies coming out soon. Let's review!

Tim McGraw
He has a movie called The Blind Side coming out and so help me, I cry every single time the preview comes on. I'll definitely be checking this one out. With a box of Kleenex.

John Cusack
This guy is like a fine wine. He just gets better with age. Oh, and his new movie is 2012. It looks REALLY scary. Hubby wants to see it, of course. Not because of John Cusack.

James Marsden
He's just so cute. I loved him in 27 Dresses. His new flick is The Box. His co-star is Cameron Diaz, who I don't really care for. I'll probably skip this one. Sorry James.

George Clooney
Oh my. His new movie is The Men Who Stare at Goats and it looks pretty darn funny. And it also stars the always delicious Ewan McGregor.

Have a great Monday y'all!
