~Friday Finds~

I haven't, obviously, been very consistent with the Friday Finds.  I think it's because I haven't really had a lot of surfing time lately.  But today I'm back!!! 

1. Independent Reign - This is another Etsy store and if you love all things sparkly, you'll love this.  They have great wristlets in any color you could imagine.  They also have adorable key fobs.  This would be an excellent place for bridesmaids gifts...if you're looking! 
This green and purple one is just one of my favs...

2.  Pickles - I found this pin on BAYMOONSTUDIO and I LOVE it...

I need this!!  Ha!!

3.  Subway Art - Something that is really big right now and I totally want to make is Subway Art.  The blog Tatertots and Jello had a link-up party last year and there are tons of fabulous ideas.  Here is a great one over at Then She Made... along with excellent directions.
If I get around to make one...which I will, I'll post it!! 

Have a Fabulous Friday!!

Deals, Deals, Deals!!!

Some people may find this hard to believe (my DH) but I love a deal.  Let me clarify, I love a deal that doesn't require me to go digging through a bunch of random and unmatched items...aka Ross!!  Sorry all you Ross lovers.  I like deals that are pretty much handed to me!!  That's the best kind, right?!?!  So I have 'subscribed' to several of these Daily Deal sites and let me just say, I've gotten some really great deals!! 

My introduction into the deal world was with Groupon.  I've actually bought several deals from Groupon and never had a probelm redeeming them.  Next I tried out Living Social.  I bought todays deal...thinking about getting some 'personal' business cards!  All mom's need them, right?!?!  Well, today I ran across a new one...GroopDealz.  Since today is my first day on this site I'm not sure how good the deals are.  One more that I've started trying out is Eversave.  This is another fairly new one for me as well.  Something I really like about Groupon and Living Social is you can download an app for your phone, pull up your deal at the business, and BAM!!!  you can use the deal.  No more forgetting coupons at home or losing them.  I HEART that part!! 

There are probably a ton of other sites like these, if you know of any I'd love for you to send them to me!

Happy Saving :) !!!!

Snowed In

I love snow days...if I can stay at home cuddled up by the fire. And that's exactly how my day has been. I'm H :) PPY!! This morning I decided to try a new recipe, Cinnamon Swirl Pancakes, and they were delicious. I got this recipe from a great blog, The Idea Room.

I will definitely be making these again!!

Stay Warm!!  Stay Safe!!
