Wayfair making my House a Home ~

It was almost a year ago that I invited Karen from Su Casa Redesign into our home to try and do something, anything, with our wonky layout and college furniture.

Remember how ecstatic I was when Karen worked her magic with items we had from around our home and totally transformed the living room I hated?

I still cannot believe she pulled it off, in less than three hours mind you!
When Karen left our house that morning, she left me with a note that had some suggestions for enhancing the space even further, and one of those suggestions was the purchase of a floor lamp that wasn't so torch-lampy like the one we've been using (since college).

I've kept my eye out for a floor lamp that looked rich, yet didn't cost an arm and a leg. Something that gave decent light since our home has no overhead light fixtures.  Something that would fit in our home now, but also  fit when we get our new furniture and flooring...

I finally found it! AT WAYFAIR.COM!~
You may know as, but it now has a new name.

New name, same outstanding collection of items to choose from.
Literally, something for everyone on your list and then some.

Our boy got right to work assembling our new accessory - (love when it's so easy, your 4 year old can put it together! awesome!)

In minutes, we were admiring our gorgeous new find...
This lamp is a great addition to our living room & will grace our home for years to come...
and...just as soon as we get the Christmas tree removed from our home & things put back in their rightful places ~ it will be perfect!

Thank you Wayfair!!

Chex Party Mix-Change - Recipe Exchange & Give Away!

Tis the season ~ Everywhere I turn, cookies, cookies and more cookies - and not just cookies - but holiday cookie exchanges! Don't get me wrong - I love to eat them - I just don't love to bake them! Our kitchen is non-conducive to do much baking, much less in mass quantities for participating in a holiday cookie exchange!

Enter in Chex - Mix! A Chex Mix-Change!

One quick visit to this website and all of my holiday treat exchange woes are over!

15 minutes to whip up a batch of delishiousness...with minimal mess and no baking? I'm all over that!

Hot Buttered Yum Chex Mix!

You are sure to find a recipe or two for every different taste for your party - I'm sure of it...
There's even a gluten free section!

I loved the packaging ideas...So much fun!

My family enjoyed experimenting with different ingredients...and aren't the M&M's always the first thing to disappear?

How would you like to pick up some Chex Mix & ingredients and try out a few recipes for your own holiday enjoyment?
The fine folks from Chex & MyBlogSpark are providing a prize pack that will contain:
2 boxes of Chex cereal to create Chex Party Mix recipes
5 featured Chex Party Mix recipes
10 takeout containers so your guests can take their Chex Party Mix to-go
$20 gift card to purchase recipe ingredients and decorating supplies ~

Thanks - and Good luck!

Eden Fantasys' - A Give Away!

*** This post is a PG13-ish post, but clicking on the links will take you to an adults only website. Please proceed with common sense (you know, don't go clicking around on your company issued computer) and caution (maybe come back when the kiddos are in bed!) ***

I'll admit it, a recent PR pitch hit my inbox and I immediately thought - "oh yeah, right!"
I said to myself 'Sex Toys?' I don't think so!' but I did take the time to read the email all the way through...Instead, words like intimacy and relationships caught my attention.

In addition to adult products, it turns out that also carries a lot of candleslingeriemassage kits, and novelty items.  

I decided to click through and see what I could find ~ I was THRILLED to find one of my favorite bloggers featured on ~ How did I not know she writes a column there?

I admit it, some of the things I discovered had me ::BLUSHING:: ~ but there were so many things that didn't.

They have a great collection of things that would make awesome gifts...we have a wedding in the family coming up in 2012 & I think I know JUST the thing for her bridal shower and/or bachelorette party! (Don't worry Auntie Linda - that link is PG - go ahead! Check it out!)

The folks at have generously offered up a $50 gift certificate for one of my lucky readers!

How awesome is that! You can go ahead and treat yourself to something awesome...if it's something you can leave under the Christmas Tree from Santa for everyone to see will have to be up to you - it's your choice!

Concerned about it arriving on your doorstep? You needn't be ~ I've scoped out the shipping policy & a quick google search tells me no one will know what comes in your unmarked, plain brown box nor will your credit card statement make a statement either.

So - what say you? Who wants to treat themselves (or buy a gift for a friend or a significant other?) with a $50 credit?  A credit that has no requirements/conditions or expiration; and can be applied to shipping if there is enough of a balance left after your purchase total.

Help yourself to one or more of the following Rafflecopter entries...
Leaving a comment is not mandatory, but I'd love to hear how you carve out time for yourself (rated PG of course!)
That's it!
One winner will be chosen on Wednesday, December 14th - Good Luck!
