The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle Sale

If you’ve been a reader of mine for any length of time, you know I only promote products I believe in. As an added bonus, I love promoting products created by businesses with integrity (you know what I mean?). Well, today I’ve found both. Recently, I started working with the Ultimate Bundles team. Now, Ryan and Stephanie are normal parents who try to save money at the supermarket, worry about what their five kids are eating (and how to keep them healthy), and try to juggle their online businesses while maintaining their relationships with each other and their kids. (Does any of that sound familiar?) But that’s not all. They run their bundle business with super-high standards. Questionable content? Nope, they are picky about what they include in their bundles. Sleazy online salespeople? Give their full money-back guarantee a try and you’ll find out they stick to their word. Anyway, all of that to say: they truly care about running a reputable business! Ryan, Stephanie, and their entire team have been putting together some incredible bundles of digital resources for five years now. You may have seen bundles around from time to time, but here’s what I love about Ultimate Bundles: the quality and value of the resources included in each bundle how easy it is to download and use their amazing customer service team and the physical bonus offers included with each one. And because of your interest in getting more done each day, taking care of yourself and your family and having fun, I have a feeling you’re going to love their newest bundle, and I want to...

March 2017 Book Reviews

Shockingly I didn’t read a bunch in March.  Just seems like we were always busy with life – which isn’t a bad thing at all!  HERE is the list of everything I read, and I’m sharing a bit about my favorites below: & nbsp; I really love the premise of this book.  I haven’t quite implemented it all yet, but I have found some of the tips for getting up early VERY helpful.  The outlined morning routine very closely follows my ideal morning, so any encouragement I can get for getting it to work consistently is terrific.  My rating 4.5 out of 5. Who doesn’t love Chip and Jo?  We don’t have cable, but when I’m traveling I like to watch an episode or two of Fixer Upper.  I really enjoyed their story – they have had quite a crazy life and have worked hard to get to where they are today.  They didn’t just “get lucky” or know someone to get on TV.  It was also interesting to learn about all the other businesses they have going on – the TV show we all watch is just a small portion.  My rating 4 out of 5. If you haven’t signed up already, be sure to check out my NEW opt-in offer “7 Ways to Become Healthier & Happier THIS Week.”  It’s a terrific jump start to a healthier and happier year! *This post contains affiliate...

February 2017 Book Reviews

I loved several of the books I read this month – and it was a nice mix of fiction and non-fiction.  You can see everything I’ve read this year HERE and a short review of my favorites can be found below: NON-FICTION   This was a book I got from the library on my Kindle and read it mostly in one evening while the Grammy’s were on the TV.  I appreciated the way the book was laid out – in that we have “buckets” for our life and we need to be sure we are taking care of ALL of them.  I also liked the short action items at the end of each section.  I’m a big fan of a “to-do list”!  I’ll probably end up purchasing this one to read again.  My rating 4.5 out of 5. FICTION I found this third book of the series to be just as entertaining as the first two.  I liked that you were never quite sure how things would work out until the very end.  Fun, fast and easy read.  As always I got a huge kick out of the pictures that were included.  My rating 4.5 out of 5. This was an enjoyable book to read while on a ski weekend.  There were several nights I was curled up by the fire with plenty of snow falling outside and a hot chocolate by my side enjoying this novel.  Nora is invited to a weekend away to celebrate the upcoming wedding of an old friend she hasn’t seen in ten years.  She debates on whether she should go or not and...

Favorite Books of January 2017

Well, I started the year off reading a LOT of books – and I can’t really tell you where I fit them in as it feels like I’ve been reading less than normal.  I guess a few of them were shorter, but still . . .  HERE is the complete list and below are short reviews of my favorites. NON-FICTION So I have to admit I picked this book up from the library simply because The Miracle Morning: The Not-So-Obvious Secret Guaranteed to Transform Your Life (Before 8AM) wasn’t available at the library and this one was.  Regardless, I really liked it.  I loved the Miracle Morning “formula” and have the original book on hold.  I found some very useful tips as well as some good encouragement to making the most of my mornings.  My rating 4.5 out of 5. Not only did I get a kick out of this book, I also got some good tips.  One of my favorites is to put something away immediately when you are de-cluttering – don’t place it in a pile to put away later because if you get interrupted in the middle of the project you’ll have a bigger mess and have accomplished nothing.  SO.TRUE.  That happens to me all the time – and yes, it takes longer to get up and go put something away, but at least when I stop midway through I have still done something.  Love it!  My rating 4 out of 5. FICTION This book kept me up almost all night finishing it.  I started mid-afternoon and finished it late that evening.  I loved the way the...

My Favorite Books from December 2016

It was a busy month of school concerts, plays, Christmas parties, swim meets and all kinds of other fun, so I didn’t read as much as I’d hoped.  However I can’t regret a minute of the fun we had this month!  HERE is the link to everything I read this month, and below are short reviews of my favorites: FICTION I really enjoyed this lovely story of a woman who hasn’t been making the most of her life discovering the hidden life of a woman who recently died.  What she learns helps her re-think her life choices – in the best possible ways.  Nice, uplifting book.  My rating 4 out of 5. Gifted teenage musician Zoe is about to perform again after a three year hiatus.  She was involved in a horrific accident that left 3 of her classmates dead.  After a disturbance at the concert and a stressful evening at home, her mother ends up dead.  As Zoe well knows, nothing is simple or clear when it comes to situations like this.  My rating 4 out of 5. NON-FICTION Although I didn’t love this the way I loved Bread and Wine: A Love Letter to Life Around the Table with Recipes, this was still a wonderful book – full of wisdom and truth.  A must read for anyone looking to change the way they think about their life.  My rating 4.5 out of 5. Did you read anything fantastic this month?  I’m on the lookout for some more recommendations, so please share! There has to be a way for you to enjoy your life instead of rushing through it....

November 2016 Book Reviews

Well, this turned out to be the month for psychological thrillers.  Some real intense reading.  HERE is a list of everything I read last month, and below are short reviews of my favorites: This was a crazy story.  Flora was kidnapped seven years ago and then rescued after 472 days.  Needless to say, she has some emotional scars and issues.  Now, she is missing again.  Along with several other younger women – closer to the age she was when she disappeared.  Is Flora involved?  How?  Is she safe?  The book goes back and forth between present day and during the time Flora was held captive.  Very intense.  My rating 4 out of 5. What a fun book.  Each year, there is “a dress” of the season.  The book follows nine different women and their stories involving the dress of the year.  Some are sweet, some are not.  It seems like this would be confusing – so many “main” characters, but somehow the author makes it work.  My rating 4 out of 5. Have to admit I loved this book.  I’m anxiously awaiting the next one to become available at the library.  It was a slow start – I had to make myself keep reading until I was about a third of the way through, then it just took off and I enjoyed it immensely.  Put together a mysterious island, some scary monsters, things that don’t seem possible and some creepy children and you get quite a tale!  I definitely need to see how they made this into a movie.  My rating 5 out of 5. What has been your favorite book...
