Rise and Shine January 12 – Kindle accessories, Gymboree FREE shipping, Toys R Us coupon, 8-quart slow cooker, more. . .


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! Welcome to Monday, my friends. How was your weekend? We had a great weekend – low key, productive and filled with family time. Saturday I made a turkey (see pics on Instagram) – one I found on markdown for $0.49/lb at QFC. We had turkey and roasted vegetables Saturday night – then I tossed the turkey bones into two slow cookers and made turkey broth overnight. We froze the broth for soups at a later time and we have lots of turkey for salads and meals these next few days.

Artwork-on-Saturday-watercolorsA quiet weekend at home. Doing art Saturday afternoon. 

We watched our share of football this weekend – Go Hawks! I was able to sneak away for a 6-mile walk with a dear friend of mine – I needed the fresh air, exercise and conversation. I hope you had a good weekend, as well.

I was reading The Art of Simple blog this weekend and happened upon this song/video by JJ Heller (see above, if that doesn’t work, view it on YouTube here). What a simple and beautiful song – and with a great message! In fact, I’ve enjoyed their music so much I created a JJ Heller Pandora channel (anyone else love Pandora?). I know many of us start the new year off with big resolutions – and big hopes for changes we hope to make or things we hope to do. Whether you’re trying to cut your grocery budget, lose weight, learn more, earn more – whatever it might be. . . I hope you aren’t too hard on yourself and that you find ways to make everyday, the best it can be – despite the obstacles and challenges getting in the way. Here’s to make this year – our best yet – however that looks or feels for you.
