TJ Maxx & Marshalls: I'm in shopping heaven!

There are 2 kinds of shopping: the boring, have-to-get-it-done kind and the fun, euphoric, look-at-all-this-great-stuff kind. For me, TJ Maxx and Marshalls are the epitome of the fun kind. I LOVE to shop, but I don't always have the time or the money to do it. When TJ Maxx and Marshalls contacted me to go shopping in their stores, I couldn't have been more excited! I was given a gift card for each store and I couldn't believe how much great stuff I could find at both!

Since I always buy stuff for my kids, I made the decision that I'd use this opportunity to shop for myself. I will admit, I felt a little guilty about it, but we mommies have to take care of ourselves every once in a while, too, right? I needed so many things so I wasn't exactly sure where to start. These stores are great because you can find pretty much anything you're looking for all in one place. I looked at everything from boots to bathroom rugs!

At Marshalls I ended up getting a cute orange wrap sweater for only $19.99 and a 6-pack of some really comfy socks for $6.99. I was really impressed at the variety of Christmas gifts they had to choose from. They had a great selection of toys for the kids and all kinds of unique gifts for adults, from beautiful picture frames to gourmet chocolates.

At TJ Maxx I ended up buying more since I was shopping without kids this time! I got a super cozy pair of Nautica pajamas that retail for $50 for only $19.99! I also got a pretty new bra for the unheard-of price of $7.99 and a silky nightie for $12.99. I found a great set of thick velvety gloves (which I was in desperate need of) for $14.99 as well. I had a great time shopping at TJ Maxx since I could take my time and look at all of the great things they had there. I can't wait to go back again!

If you are still looking to finish up that Christmas shopping or you just need a mommy's day out to find a few things for yourself, I highly recommend checking out a Marshalls or TJ Maxx near you! You won't be disappointed and you won't believe the awesome selection of items available!

You can also check out a fun contest that's going on to help get you in the holiday spirit --"Carol-oke!" One lucky person will win a $5,000 shopping spree - just for singing their favorite Christmas songs! Just go here, select from one of three carols, create your own "Carol-oke" video and upload for entry into the contest. Additionally, for each off-price "Carol-oke" video that is uploaded, a charity donation will be made. So warm up your singing voice and enter for the chance to win!

A special thanks to Marshalls and TJ Maxx for giving me this opportunity! :)

Talk to Me Tuesday!

So I want to try this out as a weekly feature on my blog...Talk to Me Tuesday! I would like to get to know all of you better, and I thought this would be a fun way for all of us to learn more about each other. Each week, I'll post a topic and you can leave a comment regarding that topic if you'd like.

This week, I'd like for you to tell me about something new you've recently started doing. It could be anything from trying to get in shape to learning to bake...whatever you want to share! I'll start...

Last week, I started working part-time. I've been home ever since I went on bed rest nearly 5 years ago with my twin boys. It's been an emotional adjustment for me to be away from them and it's hard because I know that it means a new chapter in my life is starting. I can't believe they'll be starting school next year already! :(

I am still very thankful for this job opportunity (I'm working at my church) and the hours are so flexible that I can go in whenever it works out for our family. I just have to get really good at juggling a few more things! (Hey, that's what mommies do best anyway, right)?

What's new with you?

Five For Fighting "Slice" Review

Five For Fighting is back with a new album, Slice! Thanks to the One2One Network I had the opportunity to listen to it and let me tell you, it did not disappoint!

I've always been a fan of the music Five For Fighting puts out. John Ondrasik lays down the vocals and has such an easily recognizable voice--he brings something unique to the table with his sound. There wasn't a track on this CD that I didn't like! Most of the songs have more of a ballad-type feel to them, which is the style of music I typically like to listen to. It's the perfect soundtrack for anything you're doing, whether it's cleaning around the house, driving in your car, or hanging out with friends and family.

Each song tells a different story and evokes all kinds of emotions. Titles on the album include:

1. Slice
2. Note To The Unknown Soldier
3. Tuesday
4. Chances
5. This Dance
6. Above The Timberline
7. Transfer
8. Hope
9. Story Of Your Life
10. Love Can't Change The Weather
11. Augie Nieto

Give this album a listen and I know you'll be hooked! If you want to see Five For Fighting in person, they've just started their concert tour. Dates are as follows:

18-Oct Toronto, ON El Mocambo
20-Oct New York, NY City Winery
22-Oct Bay Shore, NY (Long Island) YMCA Boulton Center
23-Oct Uncasville, CT The Wolf Den
24-Oct Washington, DC Jammin Java
26-Oct Boston, MA The Paradise
27-Oct Philadelphia, PA World Café Live (downstairs)
29-Oct Nashville, TN The Belcourt
