For those of you that know me or have been around a while, you know that I try to save and be as frugal and as savvy as possible. I had my last Christmas tree for nearly 8 years! Carefully putting it away each year to preserve it for the next. This, year however I knew it was time to let it go, especially after having been notified that its replacement would be a Balsam Hill!
You know the kind, you see them every year on the Hallmark Channel not only on commercials between the romantic Christmas flicks but in the actual movies as well. They are big, beautiful and so realistic looking. Definitely a tree after my own heart.

To say that this pregnancy has been difficult would be an understatement. I think my morning sickness began the minute I saw the positive sign on the test. Since that very moment I have had every discomfort that comes along with pregnancy that you could think of.

Taking Culturelle® Digestive Health probiotic products can help restore the natural balance of good bacteria in the intestines to help your digestive system work better and keep you feeling your best.

I took to YouTube to research and bit more and found so many videos of his method, that I thought I'd reach out to the salon to be styled by the salon owner himself.

Would you believe me if I told you that I have not done my own laundry since I was 19 years old! I heard on Jenna Kutcher's podcast the other day that outsourcing can make your life run more efficiently. So let's just say I have been outsourcing my laundry duties for the past 13 years. Unfortunately my laundry lady charges $10 bucks per comforter! And I am all for paying for convenience but that is a bit much for my budget savvy self.
