Rise and Shine April 17 – Last day to save 20% off Zaycon, TOMS free shipping, solar panel, Garmin navigator, 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! How was your weekend? Did you have a good Easter holiday? I am still recovering from ACL reconstruction/meniscus surgery – which I had last Wednesday. I’m still not able to bear weight on my left leg (at least one more week of crutches)  but I found out Friday at my follow-up appointment that the surgery went well – and it looks like it’s healing well, too. I was hoping to get more work done on the computer – but the pain meds make me pretty groggy, so I’m not as productive as I’d like to be!

In terms of Easter we had a super simple day yesterday. We had Easter ham in the crockpot and a pre-made pie from the grocery store. The Easter Bunny found our house and the kids spent most of the day playing outside (yay for beautiful weather!).
