Christmas Eve, Christmas in my mailbox!

So I think we officially got the latest delivered mail EVER delivered to ANYONE, ANYWHERE  tonight, lol! Our mail came at 8pm!! Yep, that's right... 8pm!!!  It was worth the wait though because it was like Santa found my mailbox early! 

All of the items you see below are freebie goodies won in contests. 
(The exception is the baby monitor that I found marked down from $300 to $96, free ship and tax free! We have been waiting to get one like this for for a long time, so it was nice that it came today.  It ended up being a gift from family, so even better deal for us in the end! )

So here it all is:
- 1 Video Baby Monitor
- Another $5 SEE'S Gift Card!
- NubyUSA's NEW Comfort orthodontic pacifier and
also a package of Nuby All Natural pacifier & teether wipes
- 3 Ella's Kitchen and mOmmaUS gift packs

12pm on 12/12/12 - Locks of Love!

This was a big decision I made this week... I had been going back and forth about whether or not I was brave enough to cut enough of my hair off to make A donation to Locks of Love.

I knew I wanted/needed to get my hair done, I knew I wanted to do something charitable for the holiday season, I knew where this was heading, I just didn't know if I could part with my hair.

I even had a Groupon for cut,condition,style, and highlights with Angie Grijalva at Trenza Hair Studio in Tucson.

So Wednesday 12/12/12 I made the decision that 13 inches of my hair would be going to Locks of Love to help make a wig for a child in need!

Angie did a FABULOUS job on my hair! We had a lot of fun, and as you can see below my donation hair, my cut, and my color all were perfect! (P.S.- If you like what you see and decide to visit Angie and/or Trenza Hair Studio, please tell them I sent you! I can get referral credit to do this again in the future!)

So on 12/12/12 at 12pm this is what I was doing:

Black BEFORE Friday!

Ok, so I LOVE deals, but I am not ashamed to admit that I have NEVER set foot inside a store for Black Friday shopping! I feel like it is just way too crazy, dangerous, and not to mention TOO DANG EARLY!! This is the first year we have a baby to shop for, so toys are finally on the list again, and like anything else, I want more for less! You're still not going to find my family braving the Black Friday madness, but you can bet I'm on the prowl for the best deals online! This is how WE do it!:

Ecomom greenFriday Sale:

So what was the deal!?...
I got $150+ worth of toys and food for $40!!! 
Here's how:
- Got a voucher at Plum District ($20 for $40 to spend at Ecomom)
- Shopped the Ecomom Black green Friday Sale Nov19-25
- Got automatc Free Shipping and $20 off $50 or more, no code needed!
