Rise and Shine April 14 – Crockpot Easter Ham, National Park Service free admission, Estee Lauder gift with purchase, Clean Eating magazine, Fast & Furious series, Cuties diapers, more


Rise and Shine is my way of starting the day with you – almost as if we’re chatting over a hot cup of coffee or tea! I share my favorite deals of the day, highlights from yesterday, and anything else that might help you save time, money or energy. Published in the morning on Monday through Friday  – as I’m able. 

Good morning! TGIF. . .how are you doing? I’ve been sleeping a lot the last couple days. I’m pretty groggy – trying to stay on top of the pain means I’m tired and a bit out of it. But Mr. Queen Bee is taking good care of me and I have a follow-up appointment today to check up on things.


This weekend, more than 100 national parks are waiving the entrance fees for National Parks week! Go to the National Park Service website for a list of participating parks. The National Park Service also has an easy-to-use directory of parks by name, location, activity and topic.


This Saturday, April 15, 2017 – you can get FREE entry to Washington State Parks to celebrate Spring. The Discover Pass is not required to visit state parks on free days.

Slow Cooker Crockpot Ham. This is an easy way to make ham - especially spiral ham!

Easter is this Sunday! If you’re thinking about making ham, this Slow Cooker Spiral Ham is so easy and flavorful, I hope you love it.
