Happy Monday Friends!

In Texas, we’re celebrating a Longhorn victory from the weekend’s Red River Rivalry against OU and enjoying cool mornings and slightly cooler temperatures.

  1. Have you been Peanutized yet? A new Peanuts movie is hitting the theaters on November 6 and to get in the mood for the 3-D animated adventure, you can create a rendition of yourself as a Peanuts character for free and download to your computer or use as your Facebook profile picture. It is a fun family activity for all ages! Peanutize yourself at

  2. You eyes will not be the first to go. At least they won’t if you protect them. For the past few years, I have been buying my eyeglasses on-line. Recently, I discovered an on-line eyeglass vendor that is guaranteed to protect your eyes from harmful screen glare. LED screens, smartphones, tablets, and CFL lighting emit something that’s caused blue light or High Energy Visible (HEV) light. Constant exposure to these lights can cause digital eyestrain, headaches, and fatigue.  Phonetic Eyewear uses special-light filtering technology to decrease the damage to your eyes. I have been wearing my glasses from Phonetic Eyewear for about three weeks now and I have noticed that my eyes are not itching and burning at bedtime like they previously had been. The glasses are stylish and affordable and I will be buying another pair.

  3. Don’t forget to take the blog audience survey! The contest for the five Starbucks gift cards will end  this Thursday, with the winner being announced on Friday. I’m really excited about the results I’ve received and  can’t wait to hear from the rest of you.

Three Things to Bring You Joy This Week

Awesome information for moms this week!Happy Monday!

The kids have officially been in school now for a week. As we are all easing back into schedule of things I won’t be long, but I have three things to make you happy this week!

  1. Go see the movie War Room. This movie is phenomenal. It meets you exactly where you are in your own prayer life. It was exactly what I needed and right on time. It opened this past Friday and had a stellar weekend at the box office. It is definitely a must see for all ages.IMG_1130
  2. Shea Moisture coupons. I’m not a regular couponer, but when coupons are available for a product I love, I am happy. The Red Plum insert in yesterday’s paper has two coupons for Shea Moisture hair and body products. Special thanks to my friend Tracy who told me about the coupons, and reminded me to save them until Walgreens or CVS has a buy one get one free sale — giving us more savings.IMG_1151
  3. Great Read: The People Factor by Van Moody. I’ve reached a point in my life where I’m evaluating all of my interpersonal relationships. and really analyzing how I can better serve those who are important to me. This book has helped me identify what makes relationships thrive — be it familial relationships, work relationships, friendships, or romantic relationships.thepeoplefactor
