Christmas Gift Guide ~ Pets

If you have a pet in your life, then you know how important they can be to the family. Since they are like part of the family, we want to include them in our Holiday Gift Giving. I've compiled a list of some of pet friendly gifts to give this Christmas.

Cats ~

Now if you are looking to do a handmade holiday, check out this Wiki Article on How to make a cat bed from an old sweater.

You can also make an adorable No Sew Fleece Cat Bed! Learn how over at Little Paws Pet Club. I saw these already finished on Etsy as well, if you aren't in the mood to make your own.

I came across the most darling Cat Quilts on Etsy a few weeks ago. They are sold at the shop called Colorado Catnip Toys. This is a "cat ran family business". Your cat deserves the best, and the best is COLORADO CATNIP TOYS! At least that is what her six cats say, and that many cats can't be wrong! You can choose from catnip toys, catnip mats and kitty quilts. Mats and quilts be customized, just convo …

I went and saw ~*~ TWILIGHT ~*~

I went and saw the Twilight Movie this morning! About a week & half ago, I decided to order a Gold AMC pass from Coke Rewards. Luckily, it came in the mail yesterday. What are the odds, lol.

I totally went by myself while the girls were in school. I have never been to a movie alone, I actually enjoyed it. I prefer watching tv alone because I hate when people talk, so this worked out great. There was probably about 10 people total in the theater. When I got there, a couple was already seated and that was it. They were so nice, they were talking to me about the books. The husband called into work to have a date with his wife. They didn't want to be bothered by teenagers. I thought that was so cool!

The midnight showing had 2 shows, they had to open a third viewing to accommodate all the customers.

I loved the movie. I want to say more, but I won't spoil it :) I want this ~ The Twilight Saga: Slipcased I borrowed all my books from the library, and now I'm wishi…

Review & Giveaway ~ Groovy Ruby

Have you heard about the girls group Groovy Ruby yet? If not you are in a treat!

From the website ~

Think Beatles meet the Go-Go' grade school. Maybe a little Jackson 5, Doo-Wop, and some Ramones thrown in there too. Or how about a cross between Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers? That might be Groovy Ruby.

This all original band sings up on your feet, hooky, catchy, feel good tunes that get kids up and dancing. Led by five tween girls, the band's songs contain messages of friendship, perseverance, and encouragement, amongst other positive themes.

Fresh out of the studio finishing up their sophmore CD- Strong, Lovin', and Fun, the group plays regularly throughout the New York and New Jersey Metropolitan area.

The group was put together in 2005 by teacher/songwriter Dean Laterra. "I was teaching some songs I had written to a second grade class, and one kid really stood out. It was like everyone had a kazoo, and she had a trumpet. It occurred to me then that perha…

Review ~ Pacific Shaving Company

Thanks to the Family Review Network I had the opportunity to try out a great natural shaving oil from the Pacific Shaving Company. Just 6 - 8 drops is all you need to have a smooth shave. I loved using this product and was impressed that you honestly needed so little.

Like our small but mighty™ bottle of All Natural Shaving Oil. Made from essential oils, this tiny miracle (with up to 100 shaves in a half-ounce bottle) works wonders for both men and women on even the most sensitive skin.

They aren't kidding about the 100 shaves either. Even after several uses, you could hardly tell I opened the bottle. This bottle is perfect for travelers, and it is good for men and women! All natural ingredients as well, it is a winner in my book.

I also received the Nick Stick. I have to be honest, I haven't tried it yet. Sorry, I'm not willing to cut myself, so we will have to wait this one out, lol. It seems like an awesome product though. It stops bleeding quickly, dries clea…

Review ~ The Return of Psycho Super Mom

I usually only listen to music in the car. This past weekend, I did some errands without my girls; I knew it was the perfect time to enjoy Lauren Mayer's new comedy CD - Return of PsychoSuperMom.Lauren Mayer is a singer, songwriter, music teacher, comic, and sleep-deprived mom. She is a five-time recipient of the San Francisco Cabaret Gold Award, a Peninsula Arts Grant recipient, and a phi beta kappa graduate of Yale University. Her songs have been heard on A&E's Good Time Cafe, the Dr. Demento Show, and more, she is the author of several musicals published by Contemporary Drama Service, and she is the co-founder and songwriter for Curriculum Rocks, a company producing entertainingly educational music for kids. Visit the Curriculum Rocks Website. She is the mother of 2 boys who introduce her to really cool music, who sing backup on her kids' CDs, and who inspire her wackier comedy songs.

The CD is very funny! My favorite song is Food Network. I was laughing my head …

Supercharge your Car

My husband loves working on cars. He is big into lowriders and hydraulics. His brother is big into supercharging cars. He has done Escorts, Mustangs you name it he has worked on it. His dream project is a mercedes supercharger. He even tried getting a buick supercharger for my car, but I said no way. My husband already lowered my car, that was more then I needed.

Since he only works on cars part time, he is always looking for the best prices on products. That keeps his prices low and competitive. has great pricing and customer service. If you are looking for the best price on a wide selection of replacement Supercharger, Turbocharger and nose covers, then they are the place to go. They sell both New and Remanufactured. are able to keep the prices low because they ship direct from the supplier using the power of the internet. Everything they sell is high quality. You may find parts cheaper, but they will not last as lon… makes shopping easier this Christmas!

Stocking Stuffer Gift Ideas

Stockings are a must have, but what to put in them? Here are some ideas for kids to adults ~

Trading card packs ~ These are great for sport collectors and non-sport collectors. Kids to adults if they collect. I'm giving my 7 year old Bella Sara cards, my oldest ChatterChix Trading Cards Series 1 packs. Pokemon is still popular along with a variety of other trading cards.

Matchbox cars are great little stocking stuffers for boys & adult collectors. I know my hubby & my dad both like these.

Pak Nak ~ These are great stocking stuffers for kids! You can read my review here. Coupon Code JOY15 for 15% off the rest of the year!

Ornaments are another great stocking stuffer. Hallmark, Carlton Cards are just two companies that make yearly ornaments. This is also something that you can make to save money and to have a precious memory.

Instant Tickets and Gift Cards are another great stocking stuffer. I love getting my kids a $5 McDonalds Arch Card. They always enjoy it. Some ot…
