Monster Jam (6) Tickets at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, Giveaway! (Rafflecopter) CLOSED

You will need to meet me to get these tickets, as I live in Mount Juliet.



I have never been to Monster Jam! My family and I are so excited to be able to attend this year! Our six year old son is really looking forward to it! As he loves cars, trucks, trains, and airplanes more than anything in this world! I hope that it's fun? As I wouldn't know! I heard that it's really loud though, and that worries me a little bit with our son, as he has sensitive hearing.

Enter below to Win Six (6) Tickets to see Monster Jam at the Bridgestone Arena next week on Saturday, January 4th, at 7:30pm C.S.T. You must live in or around Nashville, TN to enter this giveaway, as your going to need to meet with me to get your tickets!

Enter To Win a $100 American Express Gift Card from Northwest Pharmacy! (US & CAN) Ends 12/31 (Rafflecopter)


I have a friend whom I have known since I was five years old. We have known each other for thirty three years, and counting. He is one of my best friends, and he is Latin American, and he had skin cancer. Who knew that someone with dark skin, could get skin cancer? I didn't, and neither did he. But it happened. With more and more children and adults playing sports outside, skin cancer is on the rise. We need to be careful how much time we spend outside. But when we are outside, in the sun, we need to apply sunscreen, and make sure to reapply it every two to three hours, just to be safe. I try my best to make sure that my kids and I are covered up, or wearing sunscreen when we are going to be spending a lot of time outdoors.

NOVICA Review and ($25 Gift Code) Giveaway! (Worldwide) Ends 12/22 (Rafflecopter) #ChristmasGiftCuide



I received a really nice wood Elephant Realm necklace, from India, from Novica.com to review. I really enjoyed scanning their website for something that I wanted to keep and check out. As I don't really get the chance to choose something that's just for me! Did you know that when you give the gift of an elephant to someone, it's considered good luck? I didn't know this until a friend of mine told me, and of course, I had to look it up, and it's true!

Novica.com is currently having a HUGE jewelry Sale! They sell everything from jewelry, to home decor, fashion, Christmas ornaments, paintings, and super unique gifts that you can't find anywhere else!



When my husband and I went to India, we went to a few different stores that sold chess sets, items made from marble, a jewelry store, and more. We actually purchased two sets of the hand painted wood star ornaments above, but in red and pink, from a store in Hyderabad, India. They are really pretty, and my parents really love the red set that we gave them!



Check out this "Holy Family" Pinewood Nativity Scene made in Guatemala! An angel accompanies the Holy Family as Mary and Joseph watch over little Jesus. A cow and donkey look on. By members of the God's Seed Cooperative, the colorful nativity scene is crafted of pinewood and painted by hand. The pieces can be arranged on the base as desired. I love how simple it is, and that it looks as though my children wouldn't be able to break it easily.



I was checking out Novica's Facebook page, and I found out that they have teapots. So I was looking at them, and found this super cute green ceramic teapot with a Dragonfly on the top of the lid! I've gotta have it! I really love butterflies and dragonflies so much! This Dragonfly teapot would be a great addition to my collection! They have it in blue also!
