So, I learned how to do Mr. Linky on Saturday's post. I wasn't expecting any entries since it was the weekend and I posted it later. I'm beyond excited with the response, especially given the last minute idea! You were all SO creative and positive! We'll do it again next weekend. Just a reminder...make sure you include a link back to my post so that others can play along. If I haven't already, I'll be over to your blog soon...this weekend was busy and I wasn't on the computer much.
For next weekend, I'm thinking more on the topic of a time when we were kids and felt a boost in our self-esteem....let's work with that. OK? You can do anything you want though. :-) I'm really excited about the chance for all of us to share stories that uplift our self image. Goodness knows this world fills our brains with negativity enough!
Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. The allergies are back for me. I miss the days before I was struck by this bug. What happened? I never had allergies until about two and a half years ago. Since then you'd think me and allergy were best friends. Sheesh. He's over stayed his welcome. I have discovered that peppermint tea is FABULOUS for a scratchy throat though. I'll be drinking it by the gallon....it's a good thing it's decaf! ha!
Just a heads up. I'm going to be posting a very cool giveaway tomorrow! I've been out of the giveaway routine for a while and it's time to get back in gear! Until then, here's the menu plan for the week....
Monday: Chicken Soft Tacos with Spanish rice & refried beans
Tuesday: Maple Jack Pork Chops with mashed red potatoes & green beans

And now time for the DEALS. I'm highlighting one of my FAVORITE online stores ever! I do most of my Christmas shopping here for the kids. I remember receiving personalized things when I was little and it was always beyond exciting for me, especially because my name was very hard to find back in the day. One year when I kept things more simple, I gave the little ones personalized Christmas ornaments with adorable custom characters on them. (photo to the right) The adults got Snow Family© Personalized Ornaments with the family name.They were SO cute! And of course, I had all my coupon codes on hand and I ordered it all at the same time so that I could save more. :-)
