Rise and Shine is my way of sitting down and having a cup of coffee with you! We talk about the new deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help us save time, money or energy. Published Monday through Friday – as I’m able.
Good morning! Happy Friday! We are heading into a long weekend for many – do you have any big plans? We don’t and I’m so grateful for that! Yesterday we were a little stir crazy around here so I took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese. We go about once a year, that’s about all I can handle. That place is stimulus overload for me, but the kids LOVE it. So we had a fun afternoon playing games and riding rides.
On a side note, the kids and I stayed up late last night watching an American Girl movie – the second one we’ve seen in the last week or so. Last night we watched An American Girl: McKenna Shoots for the Stars which is FREE on Netflix. And last weekend we watched Kit Kittredge: An American Girl which is FREE on Amazon Prime. These movies are so adorable and charming – and I love the life lessons they have in them! Have you seen them? Do you have a favorite American Girl movie? I admit, I cried during both movies. I’m such a sucker. I just had to share how impressed I was with both of them – no crude humor, no inappropriate story lines, modest clothing – just a good movie with great life lessons. I find myself more and more frustrated with shows on TV – especially as my 7-year-old has transitions away from the younger shows but isn’t quite mature enough for the TV-Y or TV-Y7 ones. Leave a comment if you know of other series that you like and that you find appropriate for younger school aged kiddos!

Still available! Crock-Pot is offering 25% off all NFL Crock-pots with code GAMEDAY25 at checkout, making the NFL Crock-pots as low as $22.46. They have all the NFL teams to choose from. Shipping is not free, but it seemed reasonable, especially if you go in with a friend on the order (it’s about $8 to have two Crock-pots shipped). See my post from yesterday with details about the NFL Crock-pot sale.
I ordered these when I posted a week ago – they came in the mail a couple days ago – SO NICE! They look really slick and I especially like the locking lid crockpot – going to be great for potlucks!
