Paybox is trying to make themselves the best payment site out there. To do this, there are daily surveys and other things you get to do to have an impact on how the site runs. With doing so, you will earn interest in your account.

How was your Christmas?

I will admit it, I'm so glad Christmas is over!  I really have a hard time enjoying this time of year.  When we pull it off though, and our kids are happy, it is a magical time :)  My brother recently got a new flat screen tv and he is looking into TV stands for flat screens instead of mounting to his wall.  Now, I'm on a mission to help him find the perfect one to fit into his decor.

I have to talk a bit about favorite Christmas gifts.  What were your favorites for the year?

My 13 year old teenager ~

26" Mongoose Mountain Bike
Sweater Boots

9 year old daughter ~

Nintendo DSi Bundle Orange
Lalaloopsy Dolls
Rapunzel and Flynn dolls

Tell me, what were your families favorite gifts?

Gaggle of Chicks ~ Daily Deal Site for Moms

There is always a new fad on the internet, and right now that fad seems to be Daily Deal Sites.  Have you been checking them out at all?  I've already gotten some amazing deals from a few of them.  Well, the newest Daily Deal site is geared towards us Moms.  It is based in New York and is called Gaggle of Chicks.

Right now, they offer Deals in New York and Nationwide.  They aren't quite a daily deal site, most deals last about 3 days.  Right now you can get those adorable I like books for 40% off!  I have the Couple version and one of the regular versions.  Our family is going to start using them in January.  They are so cool!  A great quick way to jot down how you are feeling at the moment.

The next deal, I am super excited about and plan on buying!

Next Deal:

Mom's Skincare

$25 for $50 Worth of All-Natural Skincare Products for Moms and Kids

Looking for a fail-safe gift for your mom and baby buddies? Don’t miss our deal forMom’s SkinCare, the Beverly Hills-based line of all-natural body products with eco-friendly  green packaging.
So, how does the site work?  First you have to sign up for free. Super quick and easy.  When a deal first goes live, enough moms need to "hatch" the deal.  Then it is open for sale.  I've been watching the site for a couple weeks now, and have always seen a deal go live.  According to the site, the deal is life for 48 hours.  It seems closer to 3 days to me, but I guess it depends on the company.
Go check out Gaggle of Chicks and save some money on Mom Approved products! Plus if you refer friends, you get $10 in your account to spend!!!
I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Gaggle of Chicks and received a $50 gift code for the website to facilitate this review.

Aurora Fee by Megan Barnes {High School student}

Aurora Fee

I was given the opportunity to review Aurora Fee by Parent Reviewers recently.  This book is actually written by a high school senior, how cool is that?  Who better then to write a book about a teenage girl, then a teenage girl?

With her pale white skin, long black hair, and unnaturally large eyes, sixteen-year-old Aurora Fee stands out in a crowd. But there s something different about this seemingly ordinary high school student. She s wise beyond her years. And she s keeping a centuries-old secret, one that threatens to hurt the people she loves: Aurora Fee may have been human once, but she is not anymore.

Aurora Fee is a teenage girl with a special ability.  She is half cat and this allows her to actually become one.  Of course, there is a huge downside to this since she also shows parts of being a cat when strong emotions come out.  She tries to hide it, but a boy at her new school notices.  He figures out what she is and they fall in love.  I don't want to spoil any of the book, so I will leave the rest to you.

Besides this being a great book, it a good read for most ages.  I'd let my 9 year old daughter read it since it isn't graphic, etc.  It is probably geared more towards later tween years and teens.  Plus of course, us adults that love young adult novels.  I still can't get over the other being in high school.  Congrats to Miss Barnes for writing a fantastic novel.  I hope to see a Aurora Fee become a series! 

About the Author
Megan Barnes is a high school senior who started writing at a young age. She s an avid reader, with the Twilight and Harry Potter series among her favorites. She is also interested in photography. After her upcoming high school graduation, Megan plans to attend college and study creative writing.

Tick Tock by James Patterson (Michael Bennett)

Tick Tock (Michael Bennett)I was recently sent some books from Hachette.  When I got to Tick Tock by James Patterson a huge smile went across my face.  I almost started jumping up and down to actually have this book over a month before it comes out.  Normally, I check out from the library, so I'm reading the books months after they come out.  My non reading hubby and teen thought I was crazy.  My teen still brings up how happy I was "over a book" LOLThis is the fourth Michael Bennett story from Patterson.  If you haven't read them yet, they are really good.  About an Irish cop in New York that is a family man.  He and his wife adopted a bunch of kids since they couldn't have children themselves.  

Tick Tock ~

NYC's #1 detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem--the Son of Sam, the Werewolf of Wisteria and the Mad Bomber are all back. The city has never been more terrified!

Tick--a killer's countdown begins
A rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorizing everyone living there. Immediately, it becomes clear that they are not the work of an amateur, but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind.

Tick--Michael Bennett is on the chase

The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his ten adopted children, his grandfather, and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack.

Tock--your time is up

Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI Agent Emily Parker. As his affection for Emily grows into something stronger, his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. All too soon, another appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer's pattern and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. From the creator of the #1 New York detective series comes the most volatile and most explosive Michael Bennett novel ever.
Book was great.  Typical Patterson of course with short chapters that end in suspense.  A wonderful story line about a totally crazy serial killer.  I really enjoyed this one a lot.  Like I said, if you haven't read any of the Micael Bennett stories, pick up the first one.  The first couple are really touching.  I can't remember which one, but either the first or second or maybe both made me tear up a bit (which never happens to me!)
Michael Bennett Series in Order ~
