Here is a great way to make a fast easy party tray for Fall. 
Thanksgiving must have!

I purchased an inexpensive plastic leaf tray from Walmart. I also purchased 3 leaf cookie cutters.

Using 6000 Glue I glued the cookie cutters to the leaf tray.
Let glue dry

Then I filled the cookie cutters with cheese, Pepper Jelly Dip and Candy.
I then added crackers and pretzels around dip and chocolate candy around the candy leaf.

Perfect for party events in the fall. 

I spend less than $3.50 for a very nice and useful tray.

Cracker Barrel Dinner is our Thanksgiving Tradition

It is almost Holiday Season.  One of my favorite things about the holidays is our family traditions.  

For about the last 12 years we enjoy our Thanksgiving Dinner at Cracker Barrel.  We love it!  The food is delicious and everyone gets to order whatever they want.  Dave orders Sirloin - Davey orders hash brown casserole and the rest of us have the Turkey Dinner.  

It is funny to me how people say - Cracker Barrel Thanksgiving has to be terrible. If fact it is perfect!!!  We all look forward to the day.  We meet at 2 pm for Thanksgiving Dinner. After dinner Dave takes the kids home and Dawn & I head out shopping. 

I work the local hospital Emergency Department.  I work holidays in fact Christmas night and New Years Eve I will be at work.   

Guess what I am saying is that many of the people screaming "No Shopping on Thanksgiving" I really do not think have ever had a position that required them to work holidays.  When you take the job you known up front holidays are part of the job. 

Also, every year I thank the staff at Cracker Barrel for working on Thanksgiving.  They also Thank us for coming. The staff tell me they love working Thanksgiving - Last year our waitress told me she makes enough money in tips on Thanksgiving to pay for her Christmas shopping. She also told me they fight over getting more hours on Thanksgiving   LOL  Guess the protesters have no idea.

Since I only use natural products - I was very excited about testing  their products.
I love the face and body cream. Living in Wisconsin our winters are cold and our air is dry. My skin looks like a alligator by December 1st of each year. 
The creams were absorbed quickly by my skin. Which I really liked - I hate it when a cream just sits on my skin making my skin greasy. It is amazing how my skin reacts to all natural products. My skin feels great and looks great. Plus, I know I am giving my skin good ingredients not chemicals!

The Feel Great Balance is a perfect way to change up my daily water intake. I just add drops to my water bottle and I am good to go.

What is really nice about Healtop is that when you take advantage of their BUNDLES - You SAVE $$$$ - Plus the products are designed to work together to make your skin care experience a positive.

This Holiday Season HEALTOP makes a great gift 
to give and receive.

Sphynx - Portable Razor

Sphynx is changing how we think about razors.  I can not tell you how many times I have been out and thought "Oh My Gosh" when I was shaving my legs, I missed a spot.

With Sphynx  my problem of missing a area while shaving 
is GONE!!
Sphynx is not meant to replace your home razor. Sphynx is a system meant for touch-ups and when you are on the run.

Sphynx is a 3 in One Razor System
Shave Bar

Perfect to keep in my purse, car, and camper. 

Small enough to fit in your makeup case.
 Fill with water
The Shave bar is designed not to melt in your car or under the sun, it does not fell sticky and doubles as a aftershave moisturizer when you are done. The shave bar is packed with shea butter, coconut oil and cocoa butter, so it doubles as a moisturizer. No need to rinse after shaving - you can rub in the shave bar to moisture your leg.
Sphynx uses single-blade razors so that there is no tapping to remove hair. Single blade makes clean up fast and easy.

Never have to buy the case again - you just order refills for razors and shave bar.
