Rise and Shine August 6 – Alison Krauss and Willie Nelson, Weight Watchers Entertainment Books, Cricut sale, Crayola up to 70% off, 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 is it going!? Did you have a good weekend? On Friday night Mr. Queen Bee and I went on a date – we saw Alison Krauss and Willie Nelson in concert! It was a lot of fun and I just love Alison. Willie is quite an act, too! Have you seen any fun concerts this summer?

We spent Saturday catching up on chores. . . laundry mostly! On Sunday I went thrift shopping with my daughter and we stopped into Costco to stock up on healthy foods. Costco had our favorite lunch boxes on sale $9.99 (reg. $15) and High Sierra backpacks for $15.99! They also have Halloween Costumes – I couldn’t believe it!

Ever since getting back from vacation I’ve been really holding myself accountable and trying to lose some weight. I’ve been following the Weight Watchers online program and so far I’ve been really happy with it. Things like lean protein and vegetables are ZERO point foods – so you can eat as much as it as you’d like (until you’re full) and being accountable to myself by tracking my food helps me so much! Have you done Weight Watchers before? I am also getting back to the gym – I took a break during my knee surgery recovery and I need to get back in the swing of things!

Awhile ago we posted about trying out DreamCloud Mattress, which claims to be the best sleep money can buy with their 15″ blend of latex, tufting and coil technology, memory foam and hand-craft Cashmere. I’m completely sold. I just love it. And even though I can’t ever imagine returning this mattress, DreamCloud does have a 365-night Trial and Everlong Warranty – how wonderful is that? DreamCloud is so sure of their product, they will give you a full year, 365 nights, to try it and decide if this is the right mattress for you! If you don’t love it, they will remove the mattress and refund your money. And less than 3% of DreamCloud customers return their mattress. While most mattress companies only offer a 10-15 year warranty, the DreamCloud Mattress has the Everlong Warranty. DreamCloud Mattress construction and materials is guaranteed for the full life of use by the original owner! If you’re in the market for a new mattress, I recommend checking them out. Right now you can save $200 on any size DreamCloud Mattress, no code needed (it should apply automatically), prices as listed. And all orders ship FREE.
