They have so many cooler products for babies out these days than they did 15 years ago when my youngest was born! I kind of feel like I was cheated. LOL

My favorite deal was a 48-count box of special edition Holiday K-Cups. Originally $24.99 and it was on clearance for $12.49 at Walmart.
Old Spice gift sets were on clearance for $2.50 each and I had a coupon to get $1/2 Old Spice deodorants. Since a stick of deodorant was in the gift set, the coupon worked. So I paid $4 total for 2 gift sets. -$2 each was a decent price.
I had a coupon for $2 off any Olay body wash and they had an Olay gift set on clearance. It had a bottle body wash, a bottle of lotion, a sample of Pantene 2-1 conditioner and a pair of aloe infused socks in it. It was on clearance for $5, so with the coupon I paid $3 for it.
They had a Herbal Essence gift set marked down to $5. It had a bottle of shampoo, a bottle of conditioner, a small tube of hair gel and a small bottle of Secret Scent Expressions body spray in it. I had a coupon to buy Herbal Essence shampoo and get a hair finishing product free so I also picked up a large jar of Tousle Me Softly Finishing Cream.
Medium sized jar candles were marked down to $1.50 each and anyone who knows me knows that I'm a total candle freak. I got one in Cinnamon, one in Vanilla Cookie and one in Cranberry.
I also picked hubby up a Gillette ProGlide razor. This wasn't a great deal, but it was needed so I got it anyway. No sale price on them, but I had a $4/1 coupon so I paid $4.97 for it.
I have another set of coupon inserts (which all came out of today's P&G brandsaver Sunday paper insert, btw) that I'm saving to see if anything is left when prices go to 75% off.
So have you done any after Christmas shopping? If so, what was your favorite deal?

The first one, I don't have a lot of information about yet. All I know is that it'll be January 14th, somewhere in Kentucky. See...I told ya I don't have much information about it. ;)
The second one will be February 19th in Tiffin, OH and he'll be fighting a guy named Luis Vasquez. This fight is very close to home for me. Cody will have huge outpouring of support from family and friends in the area.
The last time Cody fought in Kentucky, you may remember that I wasn't able to go and it about killed me. This time, I'll definately be there! Cody is using my car to get there, and has graciously offered me a ride...yep in my own car...to go with him! LOL
I'm SO excited for the next two months! Go get 'em Cody! I want to see you holding two belts above your head! -I love photography, and this will be a great photo opp! :)
I have to admit, I'm nervous about making them. I'm nervous about using the yeast. I go from the visions of goodness described above to visions of flat, hard, flying disc's that I could use to take out an intruder! I'm going to take a deep breath though, and give it a shot.
Have you ever made them? If so, how did yours turn out? If you haven't made them and would like to see what these sinful rolls are supposed to look like, you can go to the Pioneer Woman's blog and not only get the recipe but see wonderful pictures each step of the way. You can find the post here: The Pioneer Woman Cinnamon Rolls .
I'll report back and let you know if my neighbor's love me, or if I invented a new criminal catching weapon for the local police department. Wish me luck!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Toms of Maine. All opinions are 100% mine.
Then look no farther! Have you ever heard of Tom's Of Maine? I hadn't either, until about 5 months ago. My daughter is really into the going green cause, and using all natural products. Wanting to start using products that are environmental friendly and that I didn't have to worry about putting into our bodies, I started researching online. I came across: Tom's Of Maine.
Tom's Of Maine cares about both our environment and our bodies. Besides the fact that they use science and research to find the best natural ingredients to put into their products, they also offer tips on recycling, use recycled packaging, have certifications from the ADA, PETA, the Leaping Bunny program, carry the Kosher certification, and carries the Halal endorsement.
We just love the new Wicked Fresh! Toothpaste. It has natural flavor oils, and a patent-pending botanical extract that provides you with long lasting fresh breath and tastes wonderful! Our mouth tastes and feels so clean and fresh after we brush our teeth with this product. We finish off our oral care by using the Wicked Fresh! Mouthwash. What we loves so much about it, is that it doesn't burn like some mouthwashes have a tendency to do. It just tastes great and leaves your mouth feeling clean and fresh.
Tom's Of Maine currently has a contest going! You can share your Wicked Fresh! moment, to have a chance to win a $500 Target gift card, among other prizes! You can check the contest out here: That's Wicked Fresh contest page. Wouldn't it be great to win?! I know that if any of you frugal momma's won, you'd maximize that gift card by pairing it up with sales and coupons!
You can also "like" Tom's of Maine on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/TomsofMaine and
and on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/TomsofMaine to keep up with them and their products!
Are you asking yourself "What's PCOS?"? A lot of people have never heard of it. A lot of people have heard of it, but doesn't understand the implications of the syndrome. What harm can come from some cysts on the ovaries, right? Wrong.
PCOS stands for Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome. Now, one would think that because the words "cystic" and "ovary" are in the name that everyone who has this syndrome would have cysts on their ovaries, right? Wrong again. Women with this syndrome can have cysts on their ovary or ovaries, but not all do.
PCOS is a complex syndrome, that effects many different things in the body. It can lead to life threatening complications. Most, but again not all, women with PCOS also have insulin resistance. This can lead to full blown diabetes. Therefore, the person must follow a low glycemic index diet.
PCOS can lead to heart problems and heart disease. With PCOS, more male hormones are being produced in the body than female hormones. In turn, this affects the whole hormone system. A person can display a whole host of symptoms or just a few. Some of these symtoms can be:
-Excessive Body Hair
-Male Patterned Baldness
-Metabolic Syndrome (the body has trouble regulating insulin)
-Patches of thickened brown skin
-Oily skin or dandruff
-I've also read it can lead to uterine and/or ovarian cancer
..and probably more. That's why PCOS is classified as a syndrome..because so many different things are affected.
PCOS is the number one cause of female infertility in the United States. With PCOS, a woman doesn't necessarily ovulate each month as they should. They may not have regular periods. According to: http://www.womenshealth.gov/faq/polycystic-ovary-syndrome.cfm PCOS affects between 1-10 to 1-20 women of childbearing age. As many as 5 million women in the United States may be affected and it can occur in girls as young as 11 years old.
If pregnancy is achieved, the pregnancy is at a higher risk of complications. Risk of pre-natal death, or the baby needing NICU time is higher for the babies of mothers that have PCOS.
My youngest daughter, turned 15 the end of September. The beginning of November, after a brigade of tests, she was diagnosed with PCOS. Relieved that we finally had a diagnosis for her symptoms, we thought she'd start some medicine that would make her feel better. Oh how wrong we were.
See, there's no cure for PCOS. There's not even a concrete treatment plan. There isn't much funding out there for the study of PCOS and/or clinical trials so that a cure can be found or a concrete and effective universal treatment plan can be made. The best place to find out about current research on this conditon though, is at: http://www.nichd.nih.gov/research/
My daughter is still suffering. She's frequently in pain. She frequently feels sick to her stomach. She absolutely loves show choir. Just loves to perform for people, yet after a show she's so wiped out she comes home and goes straight to sleep. Sometimes too tired to do anything the next day.
Since the diagnosis, she's become more withdrawn and sad. She's afraid to eat, because she doesn't want to gain weight and become obese. If she doesn't eat, then her blood sugar isn't stabilized and she's sick and dizzy. Following a low glycemic index diet isn't fun for a 15 year old. She doesn't like much of the food that she can eat. Getting her to eat, and to eat the right foods is a constant battle I fight every single day.
Most little girls dream of their wedding day, and of someday becoming a mom. My daughter feels this dream has been ripped away from her. She knows that for her to become a mom may not be very easy. She struggles with wondering if men will be turned off of marrying her because of her condition. A little dramatic? Maybe. It's still how she feels, and her feelings deserve to be validated.
As a mom, watching my 15 year old daughter struggle with this syndrome hurts me. My heart breaks for the way this syndrome has made her think of herself. My heart breaks for each day that she doesn't feel good. I just want to scoop her up and hug her, and tell her everything will be ok. The reality is though, that I don't know how this will effect her life. I don't know that she won't develop a life threatening complication. I don't know if she'll ever become a mother.
I don't want to leave you with the image in your mind that my daughter is an overweight, acne-ridden, balding, sad girl because she isn't. She's a beautiful young lady who like the slogan says..will "Fight Like A Girl". And we all know how hard a girl can hit, right?! Here she is this past fall, before her homecoming dance.

Once Courtney got home from school, it was a rushed busy night. She had to practice her solo, everyone had to get ready, she'd lost so much weight we had to go to my mom's to have her dress fixed so it wouldn't fall off her, then off to the concert! I get so giddy on performance nights. Just think, a real live "Glee" performance!!
For the first time ever (and she does a solo at almost every show), Courtney had a couple missteps in her solo. She was absolutely mortified, but held it together until she walked away. Then the tears of embarrassment and humiliation came. But, as with any true performer, the show must go on! She pulled it back together and walked out with her group to give us all a great night of song and dance.
Here's some pictures of the evening:
