It's Beginning to Look a Little Like Christmas

This post is sponsored by At Home. All opinions are my own. #AtHomeStores #sponsored
I love decorating our home for the holidays. We typically put our Christmas decorations up the Saturday after Thanksgiving. This year we are hosting the family Thanksgiving dinner and I wanted to put up our Christmas decorations but the kids wouldn’t have it.

No one wanted to break our annual tradition of finding the perfect tree, our annual ornament shopping trip and an afternoon of snacking while listening to Christmas tunes and decorating the Christmas tree. But since we are having friends and family over for Thanksgiving, I still wanted to add a few holiday touches to our home to put our guests in the holiday spirit.

Since putting up the tree was off limits, I decided to decorate a few areas in our home to welcome our guests.

Starting with the front door. I switched out our Fall wreath and hung the Christmas wreath on this glittery gold-colored wreath hanger with the word “Joy”. 

The wreaths we…

Super Stocking Stuffer Giveaway Hop

Merry ALMOST Christmas!   Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?   I'm just about finished.  I have a couple of gifts to buy still but the majority of my shopping is done.  
Used my Swagbucks to earn gift cards for all my favorite stores.  I Stocked up on a few tech gifts for the kids from Best Buy.  Shoe Carnival had some cute boots on sale for $19.99.  JC Penneys also had some stylish boots on sale plus I had a $10 off coupon which I just had to use.  After my coupon I ended up spending a whopping $4 on a stylish pair of boots. Talk about savings. Cha-ching.
There was one thing on my list that I didn't get. *insert sad face*  I really wanted the Lego Women of NASA set.  I glanced at it, thought about adding it to my Amazon shopping cart and didn't.  The next day I woke up to see it go from $24.99 to nearly $100. *kicks rocks*  

So when I saw Target was offering "12 Days of Socks" box sets, I knew I had to have one.  

Each set retails for $15 and contains 12 pa…

How to Thaw Your Thanksgiving Turkey

I am a #NSNation Blogger and I received Nutrisystem in exchange for this review. The opinions expressed are 100% mine. We are just days away from Thanksgiving dinner. You’ve made your list. You’ve cleared the fridge. You’ve gone shopping and you’ve found the perfect Thanksgiving turkey.
Chances are the turkey you chose is nothing more than a huge frozen bowling ball and have no doubt it will take days for this monstrosity to thaw.

There are several ways to thaw your turkey so it will be ready to cook on Thanksgiving day. The most common methods to thaw a turkey are the Refrigerator Method (the method I use) or the Cold Water Method.  Both are safe methods of thawing a turkey.

Refrigerator Method
Clear enough space in your fridge for your turkey.

Place the turkey in a large pan. Do NOT remove the turkey from its packaging.

Butterball recommends thawing the turkey in the fridge 1 day for every 4 lbs. and thawed turkey can be left in the fridge for a couple of days.

If it’s crunch time …

Did You Know Today Is...
