Happy Thanksgiving!

Reebok Shoes Give You a Tighter Butt!!

Since moving to Europe I have found that racy advertising is EVERYWHERE here and I am no longer so prudish about it. Looks like Reebok has jumped on the sex sells wagon and is advertising their new shoes for women in a SEXY way. What do you think?

You will NOT catch me out shopping on Black Friday! Mostly because I am in Italy and they do not have such a shopping day. None the less I hate being corralled into these stores sardine style and risk being trampled by some over zealous thrifty! Honestly, is it really worth it? NO. People forget the AMAZING deals you find on the internet. You can be drinking your own coffee (look I just saved you $5.00) and sit on the couch (look I just saved you $20.00 in gas) and put those little fingers to work so you can spend more time with your loved ones (look I just saved your marriage).

Here are some mega deals they are already advertising for...SHOP HAPPY! has already started "black friday"
They also have a Iphone APP that keeps you up to date with lots of great deals!

Don't forget to search in your web browser for coupons. Most stores have a 20% off or free shipping coupon out there, you just have to look for it!

My mother in law has s small silhouette of all of her children near her front door. I love looking at them and imagining my husbands little face at seven years old. You rarely see these in the homes of younger generations. However, they are making a comeback and in so many new and wonderful ways. I found this shop on etsy and I am really impressed with her ideas and what she can do! Full figure silhouettes perfect for couples, children playing and the classic "head shot". Your imagination is the limit here. You can put them on cards, ornaments and necklaces. I think you could come up with some great personalized gifts that the whole family would love!
