Listening to Christmas Music via Pandora--For Free!

 I have searched all over the web for good places to find good Christmas Music, I have found my favorite...and will never budge!  :)  My husband found this site, Pandora, that is totally free, and with an account I can customize my likes and dislikes!  I have it streaming continuously throughout the days and just wanted to share this with you all who are searching for free tunes!

Sunday After Thanksgiving Weekend!

Wow!  What an amazing filled week we have had! 
 We spent Thanksgiving with Hubby's Family, and then afterwards were able to spend the rest of the day with friends playing games late into the night.  Card games are Oh So much fun!  Loved playing "Hand and Foot".   The following day after Thanksgiving I was able to cook a Turkey, and invite more family over.  I think that it is so much less of a stress cooking a Thanksgiving meal after Thanksgiving!  We were able to spend time together as a family and just enjoy the Day After Thanksgiving.  Played Killer Bunnies too!  Anyone heard of Killer Bunnies??? hehe

This weekend I also was able to go shopping at Joann's Fabrics and tag along with a couple of friends to the mall.  One word: c R a Z y
Long lines of people waiting for fabric to be cut at Joann's Fabric!  
I ended up buying a Pair of Fiskars Scissors for fabric, 2 skeins of yarn, and some Christmas Cookie Cutters.  Not much, just kind of had fun seeing all the sales and walking around!
The Mall was not too bad we ended up having some car trouble and finally arrived at the mall at 9am.  We found some good steals on Warm Cozy Jackets!  We each got the same jacket in different colors at JcPennys.

I tried to shopping online, but just figured with a tight budget this year, just been focusing on making Christmas presents and cards this year.  I did not even get a chance to shop the great cloth diaper sales~  But...alas I think we have a good stash and I definitely do not need to feed that addiction!

Lastly, I just wanted to say that I have some Amazing Giveaways Going on!  Check out the Current Giveaway Tabs or the List of Giveaways on the sidebar.  I am gearing up for the Wooly Event that starts December 5th, and working on getting our family ready for the holidays.  :)

I hope that everyone has had a good Thanksgiving!  
As I gear up, I might not blog as much for I am getting ready for the  Wooly Event among some Christmas Events in real life that I need to prepare for! :)
Thanks for stopping by,
"Sophie and Momma"

Carmex Skin Care Products: {Review & Giveaway} Ends 12/6

Thanks to my mom I got hooked with Carmex Original Tube to soothe and protect my hopelessly dry and peeling lips.  I was a teenage who suffered from peelings lips, not fun.  So I thank Carmex for helping me through those hard years and my mom to introducing me to such a great company!  Now after using the Carmex Lip balms and Original Cherry Tube for years, I was delighted to try out Carmex's New Skin Care Products.  Carmex is celebrating 75 years of Soothing, Healing, and protecting....Check out their Carmex Facebook page as they celebrate 75 years with promotions, offers, and fun sweepstakes!
First Impression with Carmex Healing Lotion:
The first thing that caught my attention when trying out Carmex Healing lotion is the soft comforting scent that I find rather addicting!  I cannot keep from smelling my hands sometimes, because it is indeed “pleasantly” scented.  The amazing scents on my hands and on my dry legs and knees was just the beginning.   

Why I like Carmex’s Healing Lotion: 
  • The Ingredients What I usually look for in a lotion when I am personally shopping around are the words “Aloe” and “Honey or Bees wax” or “Vitamin E”.  Why?  Well because they are great for keeping one’s skin nourished, protected, and promotes healing.  I am super happy to find that I have found everything I am looking for in this Healing Lotion.  Two Thumbs up for fulfilling what I already look for in a lotion in one tube. 
  • Does it work?  The second thing I ask myself when I shop for lotion is this:  Does it work—do my hands feel moisturized after application?  I am happy to tell you that with Carmex Lotion my hands feel amazingly moisturized.  No greasy feeling either!
  • Long Lasting:  Throughout my usage of the Healing Lotion I did not have to keep applying the lotion every couple minutes.  I have to say I applied lotion maybe twice to maybe three times a day?  I find that one or two good application will do the trick for the most part.  Unless I wash dishes or am handwashing.
