Photo Sunday - Finding The Straight Line

The theme of Photo Sunday is Straight. You wouldn't think you would have a photo to contribute but I bet if you look just through the last few photos on your camera, cell or iPad you would be surprised.

We had our very first visit to Pier One and we LOVED it. When I look at this photo though all I see are straight lines!

These beautiful books are actually empty holiday boxes at Michaels. I didn't get one but really really wanted to.

This ornament keeps things straight and narrow

Red candy shop shelves and the rungs on the ladder couldn't possibly be any straighter.

My deck in the middle of the snow storm on Wednesday looks awesome covered in a white fluffy layer

Straight Out Of The Camera - Goddess and A Frosty Sally

This was an easy pic for the category Straight Out Of The Camera! Wednesday into Thursday we found ourselves in 10 inches of heavy snow in my area. It was beautiful and a very interesting Thanksgiving! We were supposed to go to my in-laws who we were very excited to see. They are only here 6 months of the year and spend the rest of their time in Spain. The kids were counting down the days but with the heavy snow and no electricity we opted to stay close to home. The turkey was in the fridge already defrosted as a back up plan (the snow was expected), the generator was on, and the fireplace.

Honestly it wasn't a bad day at all except we didn't have a traditional Thanksgiving meal with our extended family. I am a firm believe in everything happens for a reason and staying close to home with my little family served me just fine. My town is very generous and everyone was on generators and offering up their ovens or a meal but we stayed home.

My daughter and I played some board games and we got diner food to go for dinner but it was a great day all in all. I wanted my family together and we were.

During the day Goddess headed to the deck for a while and created a snowman on her own. We watched her roll it by, creating the biggest snowman we have ever had on our property.

Here she is trying to figure out how to get that body onto the first part.

Daddy was kind enough to go out and assist.

She is making sure it will not fall off.  LOL this photo shows how she puts her whole body into it.

Completely reinforced

She called her Sally! Here is a faceless Sally

A trip to the yard hailed us some stones for eyes and buttons

She loves Her! I love her too because she doesn't have a mouth which means less talking in my world. Not a bad thing!

This frog hat makes me crack up every time.

One more kiss!

We Found Bling While Walking Around

Goddess and I were out and about and found some lovely bling to take photos of. With memes in mind I was motivated to grab some blues, reds, yellows and oranges.

Tips For Giving The Best Wedding Gifts

A wedding gift is not a formality but it is a way to express your happiness on the day of their wedding. So, give them a gift they need and fits in your budget. Well, the budget can be taken care of because there are some amazing overstock promo codes to help you get the same expensive item at a price that is good enough for your budget.

If you are planning to give a wedding gift to someone, here are some interesting shopping tips that will save you time and, at the same time, you will be able to give them an amazing wedding gift.

So, read on and help yourself get an amazing gift for the newly-weds.

1.    Check Out The Wedding Registry

In most of the cases, the newly-weds love gifts from the wedding registry. This is because it makes an impact and as compared to the boxed gifts, this is a better option. So, if the couple has created one, be sure to peek into it and know items they need and want. Once you have chosen the right item to gift, jump on to, use this coupon code and get that amazing item for the couple.

To be true, in most of the cases it is a no-fail option. However, some people will feel that it is a less thoughtful and might be annoyed by the fact too. So, think over it and go ahead with your plan.

2.    Know The Logics

Well, buying an item from the wedding registry is a great idea, but be sure that you choose an item that is appropriate and looks good, as a gift. This is because some of the noted items might be flashy and noted just for fun. So, use your brains and know when to show off-registry.

Again, if the items noted in the registry are out of your price budget, look out for options to bring that price in your budget (like using overstock coupon codes) or look out for alternatives.

The last alternative here is to give them a cash gift. Couples would appreciate a cash gift for sure. So, this is the last resort available for you.

Choose A Memorable Gift

Giving them random ‘happily married’ or the ‘cute couple’ frames is seriously out of fashion. Don’t worry about it because someone or the other will surely give it to them. On your part, look for something that is perfect for them. If you know the couple well, you should be able to give them something they are really looking forward to and is memorable, in some way or the other.

If you cannot think of a memorable gift, look out for some of the amazing items available on With these little coupon codes, you will be able to get the perfect item for them and yet shell out just enough to help you maintain your budget.

4.    The Cash Gift

If you are planning to give a cash gift to them, you should give it depending on factors such as, closeness to the couple, your budget and so on.

In most of the cases, guests prefer gifting an amount in the range of $100 to $150. If you are short of cash, you can add a couple of these coupons for This will allow the couple to choose an appropriate gift for them.

5.    Gift Etiquettes

Well, if you are not attending the wedding, you are not bound to give them a gift. But since you have planned to be a part for their wedding, know the simple rule of leaving the wedding gift at the appropriate time and place. There have been a number of cases where people have left the gift on their chairs because they were in a hurry. Well, don’t do that for sure. You don’t want to scare everyone else, thinking of it as a bomb.

Again, don’t leave it around with kids. There is a possibility that they might spoil it. So, take care of your gifts, at least till it has not been passed on to the lovely couple.

As for a cash gift, it is better to write a check because there is a possibility of cash-stuffed envelopes getting stolen. You surely don’t want to be embarrassed when you greet the couple and have nothing to give.

For the boxed gifts, be careful because if it contains a durable item.

Talking about durable items, you can think of products such as tea pot sets, a dining set or something similar. This is a good choice because the newlyweds will need it and these options can be used by them on a daily basis. So, if you are opting for such items, be sure you are choosing a set that is of great quality. If you are looking for good quality durable items, check for a number of sources and then finalize one.

6.    Where Should You Shop For It?

Shopping for a wedding gift in a retail store has only one benefit. You get the item in your hand as soon as you pay for it. However, if you shop for a wedding gift in an online store, you can look for a variety, sitting comfortably on your couch and get amazing discounts on your purchased item. That is not all. For an additional discount, you can use such

7.    Don’t Opt For Something That Is Too Flashy

Well, some of us focus on giving gifts that are attractive. However, in that process, we make the wrong choice and choose a gift that is too flashy. This can be an annoying thing to do. So, choose something that is attractive, yet looks decent.

Shopping for a wedding gift with these six tips, you can be sure that you are purchasing an item that is the need of the couple. So, start with the wedding registry and get an amazing gift for the newlyweds.

Jingle All The Way 2 Starring Larry The Cable Guy

Giveaway for Jingle All The Way 2 Here
Git-R-Done This Holiday Season as Jingle All The Way 2 Arrives on
Blu-ray™ Combo, DVD and Digital HD™ December 2

Two desperate dads compete in a no-holds-barred battle to be the best father and make this the best Christmas ever! Fun-loving, laid-back dad Larry (Larry the Cable Guy; Cars, Tooth Fairy 2) is having a bear of a time finding the perfect Christmas gift for his eight-year-old daughter, Noel. The season’s hottest toy, The Harrison Bear, is all sold out, and Noel’s new stepfather wants to keep it that way — so he can be the one to make her holiday wish come true. When Larry learns all Noel wants for Christmas is the bear, he’ll stop at nothing to make his little girl happy and get her the toy of her dreams…Co-starring WWE Superstar Santino Marella, Jingle All The Way 2 is heartwarming and hilarious fun for the whole family!

The 411:

I loved the first Jingle All The Way starring Arnold Schwartzeneger about a dad who wants to get his son a Turbo Man for Christmas. In this version starring Larry the Cable Guy; Larry plays Larry a single dad trying to get his daughter what he believes is the one thing she is asking for this Christmas. He is competing with a new shiny step father who has a whole lot of cash and will do whatever he can to make Noel's wish come true.

We love holiday movies especially the kind that have heart and are funny. This has a whole lot of heart and heck it's Larry so the humor is there. 

While it doesn't have all the bells and whistles of the first movie. Larry does a decent job of playing a single dad trying to be the best dad for his little girl who loves him. 

Great movie for the whole family about love, never giving up, and sometimes family aren't always the people you were born to and that's OK.
