Christmas in July!

Remember, we are in July and in just a few months it will be Christmas! Yes, it is my favorite holiday.  But now is the time I start all my homemade gifts.  I always plan on making a bunch of homemade stuff, but life happens and I know starting now helps take the burden off of waiting last minute to get the gifts made.

If you're not the crafty type remember now is the time to start shopping. Most places started to clearance items for their fall arrivals. Now that my kids are older I go to the dollar tree and buy my kids stuff for their homes.  You can get a bunch of nice things as the Dollar tree has stepped up their game.  You can easily get 2-3 gifts for $20. If your kids are younger they have a large amount of ats and crafts and toys that will keep them entertained for hours.

I hope this friendly reminder helped. Got any ideas, please leave a comment below!

So time to speak my mind! Be ready to be offended! However, I think people take the challenge as matchmaker a little too seriously. Now do not get me wrong, I might have chosen wrong for myself, however, my setup rate for others was pretty damn good. I just did one thing that most people who want to play matchmaker never stop to consider. Is the person I am trying to set up ready for a relationship? Or more importantly, do they want to enter the dating pool again? Dating is scary. Why might I be taking a stand on this subject? Funny you should ask. I was informed a few times in the last few weeks that I should start dating. When I asked why, the answer made me laugh. Well, don't you think it's time you got back out there? Don't you want to be with someone. I saw red. I know I am not ready to date again. Is it because I am still in love with my soon to be ex-husband? Um, no. I would ask anyone who reads this that if I took that trip to stupid town to drag me back to s
