Rise and Shine May 8 – Spring cleaning, decorative aprons, Crocs 30% off, Lancome gift with purchase, Anne Klein watches, Coleman tent, 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! It’s MONDAY! Are we ready for this? I suppose we don’t have much of a choice in the matter. 😉 How was your weekend? We spent most of Saturday morning moving around rooms – and sorting through stuff – SPRING CLEANING and simplifying – it’s something we’re always working on. The kids had playdates and we had a lot of fun as a family, too. The weather was gorgeous so we spent a lot of time out in the yard – look at how big our chickens are getting!!!

Next weekend is Mother’s Day! Do you have any plans? We actually went out to dinner this past weekend to “celebrate” Mother’s Day and to avoid the busy restaurants on the actual day. I like it that way. 🙂

Right now you can enter the KOA Behind the Sign Giveaway and grand prize includes Keystone Outback travel trailer, $5000 KOA Gift Card and $1000 cash. No purchase necessary and you can enter daily for more chances to win! Enter for a chance to win here.
