There are a handful of times each year that I can talk hubby into taking me to see a sappy movie and despite his unlove for the holiday all about love, Valentine’s Day is one of those occasions! This year, the king of romantic/sappy/bring-a-box-of-tissues, Nicholas Sparks, has yet another one of his romance novels, The Choice, coming to you live and on the big screen.

So, my teenage dream of starring in a block buster rom-com opposite of Ryan Phillipe clearly isn’t going to come true, which means it is time to embrace where I do have a starring romantic role: my own life with my hubby! Sounds cheesy, but it’s true and now with YourNovel.com, hubby and I can star in our very own romantic comedy book (or series of books!). I received a saucy personalized romance book (oh, and it’s a mystery, too!) from YourNovel.com in exchange for my honest opinion.
Perfect Valentine’s Gift: Personalized Romance Book from YourNovel.com
Hubby tells me every year that he hates trying to find a Valentine’s gift (or really any gift for that matter!) for me because I am hard to shop for since I don’t care much for flowers (they die too quickly, I’d rather look at the garden!), I’ve put a caution on sweet things (New Year’s resolution is still in full swing!) and I’m not much for “fancy” jewelry. But I think I am very easy to shop for – I love to read, so I’d be happy with a gift card to my favorite local bookstore, or if he wants to take that a step further – how about a delightfully delicious personalized romance book from YourNovel.com? YourNovel.com features more than 50 titles of books from mild to wild (oh la la!) where you fill in the details and not “MadLibs-style” – you go in, type in the details they ask (and they ask some great details to make it feel real!) and just a short time later you will hold in your hands a beautifully printed and fully personalized romance book just for you!

The Super Bowl is coming up and while my beloved Green Bay Packers will not be in the game (boooooooooooo….), we still love to host a get together with friends to enjoy food, fun and quality time. With our goal to buy a new roof for the house this year, we have to be more savvy in our gatherings and general spending and food expenses are always one of our biggest expenditures, so I am forever looking for a way to keep myself on the best budget possible. For me, that means heading to Save-A-Lot to find great deals on food we use every day and for parties, too! If you have never been to Save-A-Lot and you are planning a Super Bowl party, find your closest store and go there now! You will not regret it. From ingredients to make tasty Super Bowl recipes (I’m going to share a quick, easy and affordable one in just a minute!) including fresh produce, to easy-to-make goodies that go from freezer to table in mere minutes, Save-A-Lot has you covered!
Every year, I try to avoid making resolutions, but secretly am resolving to work out more, take better care of myself, etc – yet I never find the time! But this year, 2016, I am half way into the first month and I AM DOING IT! While it’s only been two weeks, I can honestly say that I have been actively finding time for myself each day to take care of me and I am a doing that in a variety of ways – either working out (health bonus!) or finding some quiet time to read a book or perhaps complete a Sudoku puzzle (one of my faves!). So why the sudden commitment to it? Well, two-fold: This is the year I turn the same age that my mom was when she passed away suddenly and I need to be the best mom I can be and without taking care of myself, I cannot reach that. I was sent a book, The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You by Jessica N. Turner, for review (along with some other The Fringe Hours goodies, more on that later!) and was moved by her words to really look at my life and come up with ways to find some “me time” so that I can be better elsewhere in my life.
For the longest time, I didn’t both much with my fingernails – I’m not sure why, I always decided it was too much work and wasn’t sure if it was worth the time or effort. But in the last two years, I have come to realize the benefits to taking a bit of time for myself and even if that is just a few minutes to give myself a mini-manicure at home. My girls have also started to enjoy this time and learning to care for their nails and ultimately, take care of themselves. We recently received an assortment of beautiful coloring changing nail polish products from Del Sol and we are in love!
