Great Hallmark Deals!! Free Merchandise!

Filed under: Smokin' Deals — Jenna @ 9:54 am

Ok, remember when I told you there was a $5 coupon off any purchase in the December issue of Real Simple Magazine? (also available in the December issues of these magazines: Woman’s Day, O Magazine by Oprah, Martha Stewart Living, Southern Living, and Family Circle). If you have the crown card, you may have gotten an email from them too! I got a printable coupon for $5 off too!!

Well, the magazine deal just got better!!

Starting today, November 21st thru November 29th if you use your Hallmark Crown Rewards card you will automatically earn a $3 certificate in time for Valentine’s Day!!

This is such a great deal!! You can not only get free cards/paper/holiday bags/ornaments now, but also in February!!

I don’t buy my holiday cards from there, but I’m always needing birthday/thank you/sympathy cards thru out the year, so I’ll stock up now!

If you don’t have a crown card, run to your nearest Hallmark and sign up today! It’s so worth it! And, don’t forget to look for their $.99 card section and their “value” line. It’s full of great stuff at great prices!

Filed under: Holiday Time!,Uncategorized — Jenna @ 6:15 pm

I can’t believe that Thanksgiving is NEXT week!! It seems crazy that the holiday season is upon us!

So, in order to be ready and organized I’ve come up with a plan!

Today (Wednesday)

  • Clean out pantry (done!)
  • Clean out fridge (done!)
  • Cut up bread for stuffing (done!)
  • Make plan for the week (almost done!)
  • Shop for the rest of my Thanksgiving food (done!)


  • Start picking up house (started!)
  • Make list of last minute groceries


  • Continue to pick up house


  • Start thawing out turkey in fridge


  • Continue to pick up house (yes, my house is messy LOL LOL, it’s a constant battle)
  • Copy all recipes (I like to do this so I can see them and have them in one spot)
  • Go over recipes to double check what I need


  • Keep cleaning house


  • Pick up any last minute groceries
  • Clean guest bathroom
  • Vacuum house


  • Finish Picking up house
  • Wash sheets for guest room (aka my daughter’s room)
  • Wipe down guest bathroom (last minute clean up)
  • Pick up parents from airport

We are having our “big” meal at normal dinner time so I’m not in a big rush to put it all together right when I wake up. I’m pretty excited just to have a chill day with my family. My step mom is making breakfast, then we’ll have a casual lunch, then dinner around 6 pm.

  • prep all veggies
  • put together stuffing
  • cook turkey
  • set table
  • get out all dishes we’ll be using
  • bake sweet potatoes
  • make mashed potatoes
  • let turkey rest/make gravy
  • carve turkey
