One Stop Shopping Online - Stress... Solved!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of All opinions are 100% mine.

With the holidays upon us, we’re all stressed, and it doesn’t look like it’s going to be getting any better for about another 4 or 5 weeks.  There is shopping to do, menus to plan, decorating the house, invitations, Christmas cards, holiday meals to prepare (and the grocery shopping that goes with it), and so much more!  And oh, yes!  All those holiday gifts I buy need to be wrapped.    It just takes so much time to get everything done!

Not only that, but all the parties and get-togethers that I have to attend – well, I don’t HAVE to, but I want to – take time out of my busy schedule as well.  I have to have the proper attire, be at a certain place at a certain time with a certain type of hostess or exchange gift, not to mention food items I need to take with me.

I found a solution!  It’s called  This website is designed to give us back the time we need to do the things we have to do or just spend extra quality time with our families.  It’s a very unique concept, almost like having your own personal shopper for all of your holiday shopping

What can do for you?  Lots!  For example, one of my least favorite things to do is go to the grocery store.  I don’t mind putting it up when we get home, and I don’t mind preparing meals, but the actual task of getting in the car, driving to the grocery store, loading my cart, paying, and driving home makes me nuts! will do all that for me!  They offer full service, same-day grocery delivery of your  items.  .  After my order is placed, purchases the items at local stores and deliver it right to my door on MY time schedule!  They can deliver as late as 9 PM, and they also deliver on weekends.

What a lifesaver!  I can order everything from food, to pet supplies, household goods, baby care items, and a lot more.  There are over 25 categories of items from which to choose.  I can get most of my Christmas shopping done this way as well as purchasing food for holiday menus.  They offer appliances, tools, toys and games, furniture, music, storage items, beauty items, health and wellness items, prescriptions, pet care, televisions, and even jewelry and watches.  There is something for everyone on my list, including the cat!  They also offer purchase protection, product repair, and installation.  This isn’t an ordinary shopping website!

I’ve got my eye on this Diamonesse Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Cross Pendant for my oldest daughter.  The prices is definitely competitive at 79.99.   I also want to get the Keurig mini-brewer for my mom.  Again, it’s got a competitive price plus a rebate! I really CAN get all of my shopping done with one site!  Stress solved!

You may be asking… how?  Simple.  Sign up online.  Check your zip code to see if delivery is available in your area, and you’re good to go.  They offer 6 month and one year memberships, but BONUS!  They offer a 30 day FREE trial.  And FREE is always good!  I hope you’ll go check out right now.

Aloha Friday

Friday is the day they take it easy in Hawaii, home of our lovely Aloha Host, Kailani.  I'll ask a simple question, and you can leave your answer in comments.  Come join us for some Aloha Fun!

Thanksgiving 2012 is over now, and it's time to get ready for the Christmas season, but before I do that, my question is...

Do you call the "bread stuff that accompanies the turkey"
dressing or stuffing,
and in what region do you live?

Happy Thanksgiving

I wanted to take a minute to say how grateful I am to have this blog as a creative outlet, and to say thank you to those of you who check in with me.  I hope you're enjoying a Thanksgiving holiday filled with lots of comfort food, family, friends, and football!

And just wondering... is anyone doing any black Friday shopping?  I mean, at a real store?  I'm sticking to the Internet this year.  I don't plan on buying any electronics, which is where the really good deals seem to be, and I know there will be sales from now until Christmas, and I don't feel like fighting the crowds.  There was a crazy 18 year old girl who started camping out at our local Best Buy on Tuesday afternoon.  She's still there!  I think she'll have been there 60 hours by the time they open.

I'm spending the day with my mom. Thankful she's still around, though there were a couple of times in the past few years we thought we were going to lose her.  Missing my dad, as usual, but thankful I got to spend time here on Earth with him.  Can't wait to see him again in Heaven!  I wonder if people ever really "get over" the loss of a parent, particularly when it's completely unexpected.  I would dare say they don't.  But, focusing on my many blessings:  health, happiness, family (husband, kids, mom, sister and her family, in-laws, etc.), God's grace and love, a home, food to eat, a job, freedom, and so many more things to be thankful for! 

Have a happy Thanksgiving!

Friday Fill-ins

I haven't done Friday Fill-ins for a while.  Tonight seems like the perfect opportunity.  It's still Friday where I am, too.

1. One time, I went a whole day without eating.  But only once!  LOL
  2. The song "Love Train" is something that makes me smile.
3. Seven words I love: compassion, envision, flummoxed, vintage, "You were right."  That's 7 total, right?  Hahahah.
4. I have rarely seen snow; I don't think I could live where it snows regularly.
5. I looked out the window today and saw that my son's truck wasn't parked at the curb.  Where is he?
  6. My husband and I actually like one of the same TV shows, and that's saying something!  We rarely enjoy watching the same things on TV.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to a long, hot bath and a good book, tomorrow my plans include watching my daughter perform at our last football game of the season and maybe taking in a Rockets game, and Sunday, I want to relax, but I have to catch up on some work!

Come join Friday Fill-ins!
