Rise and Shine September 20 – LuLaRoe Halloween leggings and tops are coming, pesto pasta salad (quick dinner idea), Gymboree FREE shipping, TOMS extra 25% off, Dyson vacuum, sprinkler controller, 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 WEDNESDAY! We are half way to Friday. . . we can do this! How is your week going? Yesterday I was able to place an order for LuLaRoe Halloween leggings and tops! I’m so excited about the prints and styles I’m seeing for Halloween. They are starting to ship out to retailers today, so we should have them soon! Join our LuLaRoe group if you’re looking for Halloween items (or just want awesome customer service and great inventory).

Last night we were busy with football practice and a tight schedule so we had pesto pasta salad. I had found some marked down portabello mushrooms which we cooked up and served over the pasta with the fresh parmesan. Because we didn’t grow basil in our garden this year, we used jarred pesto – which is a great quick meal. Basically all you have to do is boil pasta and mix in pesto – it’s so easy. Then add in any vegetables that you might have around.
