Are you looking for an original gift for someone on your holiday gift list this year? Or are you looking for some original jewerly that you can't find in the stores? If so, you need to check out the handmade jewerly by Lynn Krestel.

It's still technically Monday for another hour and a half!!
How long does it take you to get out of bed in the morning? From the time my alarm goes off until I actually get out of bed...about 30 minutes.
Do you usually sleep on one side of the bed or another? Yep, I sleep on the left 1/4 of the bed. Hubby and the dog get the other 3/4.
Something you wish to accomplish before the end of the year: Hmm....I would like to get some family pictures taken.

First of all is the Vent 'N Serve . This product is made to go from the freezer, to the microwave, onto the table and leftovers go back into the fridge or freezer. It's also great to take leftovers to work for lunch the next day! You can even make baked potatoes in the microwave...and they don't come all dried out! I also make some yummy quick cakes with only a box cake mix and a can of
My second favorite item is called the FridgeSmart set. These are for all of your friuts and veggies. Using these will keep them good longer. How many times have we bought a bag of lettice only to find it has gone bad in the bottom of your crisper drawer? Or maybe strawberries? If you are nodding right now, you have to check these out! They have ridges on the bottom so your fruits and veggies don't sit in the moisture that has collected in the bottom of the container. And they have vents on the side so you can let just the right amount of air into them. There is even a guide right on the container that shows you if you should open one, both or none of the vents, depending on what you put in your FridgeSmart.
I could go on and on with all of the wonderful products, but I'll stop with my top two. So make sure you visit their website for yourself and all of your holiday needs! Book a party and save yourself some money on your holiday shopping.
If you have any questions or comments, drop me a comment!

It's been a while, but here is my camera critters for the week.
These were taken at a park in my town that has a little section called "Old McDonald's Farm". It's really a mini farm in the middle of the city so all the "city folk" can see all the farm animals. They have an aquatic section, which I could spend hours at, just watching the ducks swim around.
And here is the little baby duck...it was so cute, but I couldn't get a good picture of it.
Sadly, shortly after we were there this summer, someone broke into the aquatic center one night and killed many of the ducks there. I haven't been back since.

Would someone like to explain to me how in the world we are in October already? 7:00 at night and it's dark out!! I can't believe how fast the time has gone this year! Especially the last few months.
I'm ready for some cooler weather, I just wish we could get there a little more gradually. Last week, we had 80 degree weather, and today...
That's life in Iowa!
