The Monday Morning Mashup.

And we're back to Monday! It always comes back around so quick.  

I am soooooo not a morning person but every single year becoming one is one of my (ridiculous) New Year's resolutions that I know I'll be all gung-ho about for a month or so and then it'll slowly fade away, never to be thought of again.  It's just not ME.  No matter how hard I try, I will never like mornings or be able to pop up and start my day super early unless I absolutely have to.  But even so, I'm no quitter.  So until next year... ;)

Now THIS is me:

We all deal with Monday mornings in different ways.

Hello weekend!!

Today, I'm linking up with Andrea, Erika and Narci for Friday Favorites and this week, I'm switching it up a little with my October Book Review!  I figured since it was November 9th, it was probably time to get to it.  haha

So let's dive right in!

Happy day, friends!  

Today I've got another "lately" post full of random bits of pieces of life around here over the past couple of weeks.  As I type this, I have no idea what I'll be pulling off my phone so that's always interesting.  ;)

  First up is my trip to Michael's last week for red glitter.  That is all.I.needed.  RED GLITTER.  I had a few Etsy orders that needed to be finished so it was supposed to be a quick in and out trip.

But somehow....this happened.

New Blog Launch | Friday Favorites

Yay for FRIDAY!!  Do we all need it or what?!  Halloween falling in the middle of the week is just the worst.  I always feel like we can't get back on track after that.  Last night, we stayed out late again because Mason had a doubleheader at 6 and 7:45 and Matthew also had a game at 7:45 across town.  We had to divide and conquer and by the time we all got home, everyone was tired, cranky, hungry and in need of showers.

So today I'm only sharing one Favorite with you.

My new Daily Deals blog is finally up and running!  I shared a sneak peek of it yesterday with the members in the Facebook group just to get some feedback and make sure everything was in order and so far, so good!

So here's how it will work.

Every day (or almost every day), there will be a Daily post.  As I find deals, sales, coupon codes, etc and post them to the FB group, I will also be posting them to the new blog.  This means that the blog will be updated multiple times a day but all of the deals will be in one daily post.

I think this will be great for those of you who said you weren't on Facebook but wanted to see the deals but it will also be a quick way to check to see what was posted that day.  Sometimes on Facebook things can get buried quickly and it's hard to see if you missed anything.

Good to know:

LIGHTNING DEALS are only available for a few hours or until they sell out so if you see something you want on LD, then you need to grab it and check out within 15 minutes or it will be removed from your cart and/or you'll no longer see the deal price.

The "DEAL OF THE DAY" deals on Amazon are only good for 24 hours and have a clock on each listing that is constantly counting down.  Many of these items will sell out at the deal price before the time is up as well so again, act fast if you want it!

JANE deals are up for 72 hours and things go FAST!  They only have a limited supply so grab your size and color quickly and check out fast.  Putting them in your cart doesn't hold them and since every seller ships separately, there is no advantage to doing ALL of your shopping before you check out.  Does that make sense?  I've lost out on some good stuff after adding it to my cart and then forgetting it was there until it was too late.

And that's really about it!  I've got some errands to run this morning but once I get back, I'll start posting but in the meantime, be sure to check out my Welcome post HERE and scroll through all of yesterday's finds as well.

And don't forget to join us in the Facebook Group for even more of the good stuff!  Please feel free to share the new blog and/or the Facebook Group with your friends!  

I really hope this helps with the upcoming holiday season shopping that has to be done!  And thank you so much to all of the sweet members over in the group!  I am loving this new side gig and hearing that you ladies are loving the group has definitely kept me going when sometimes I start to worry that it's all just too much to deal with.  So THANK YOU!

Now go say hi over HERE!  ;)  

HAPPY WEEKEND, FRIENDS!  I'll be back with my October Book Review next week!

Hey girl hey!  I hope you all had a very happy Halloween last night!  It rained cats and dogs all day long yesterday and then finally let up around 6:30...just in time to get our trick-or-treat on!  We were really afraid that storms were going to rain us out this year but we managed to pull off another fun Halloween night!

My kids are getting big so fast so I cherish these childhood memories with them.

On that train of thought, I figured today would be a good time to break out the Rewind Series again and share memories from Halloweens past.  I'm sure I've shared some of these pictures before but I can't help but take my trip down Memory Lane again.

I should warn you that we are not over-the-top Halloween fans so don't expect Pinterest worthy costumes.  I never dress up and my kids always want Party City type costumes. We are definitely #basicandjustfinewiththat. ;)


For Matthew's first Halloween, we wanted him to be comfortable and cute.  So I found him some baby scrubs, slapped a "Matthew J. McStinky, M.D." nametag on him and called it a day.

I still remember being so worried about not getting him to bed on time and how it would throw off his whole sleep schedule that night.  haha  #firsttimemommyproblems

Happy Halloween, y'all!!  I'll be back tomorrow with a new Rewind Series: Halloween Edition but for today, I'm leaving you with this gem.

Amanda, aka Rainbow Brite, circa 1985(ish).  ;)

Do y'all remember when costumes were as simple as the creepy plastic mask and the plastic dress you just slipped over your clothes?  Ahh. Those were the days.

We are in for a very WET and yucky Halloween so this should be an interesting one for us.

See you back here tomorrow!
