Watch Your Favorite NBC Shows Online for FREE With TVEverywhere

Oh Tuesday, I am so very happy to see you. Today is officially my Friday and the start to a mini vacation at home with family. With Thanksgiving only a couple of days away, everyone is off of work and school is closed until next Monday! You know what that means right? Time to get my relax on. I am turning mommy mode off for at least an hour or two a day because I am in major need of some "me" time after a LONG grueling semester. The struggle of being an adult student is real! Finding time to indulge in a little television is hard to come by when your mind is filled with mundane equations and business law terminology. Not only do I get to catch up on some much needed sleep this week but I can finally binge watch my favorite shows from the comfort of my couch or bedroom. I am all about the freedom to stream on my laptop.

Creative Gifts For Everyone On Your List At Barnes & Noble

This is a sponsored post on behalf of The Motherhood and Barnes & Noble. All opinions are my own!

The holiday shopping season kicks off this week! It's hard to believe that it's already time to put up the Christmas tree and begin wrapping presents. With a cup of coffee in hand and a comfy pair of sneakers, I am ready to take upon the challenge of finding the perfect gifts for the ones I love. Since the majority of major retailers become a madhouse this time of year, I am thankful for stores like Barnes & Noble because I can find a gift for just about everyone on my list all in one place. Not only does it save me time but it also helps me maintain my sanity because holiday shopping is no joke folks. It gets a little crazy out there and I know what it feels like to be ran over by a shopping cart on a mission.

Doozer's Giant Gingerbread House + Doozer DVD Giveaway

This is a sponsored post facilitated by NCircle Entertainment & Simon Kids. All opinions are my own!

One of our favorite traditions during the holidays includes gingerbread, a muffin pan full of different candies, candy canes, marshmallows, and vanilla icing to hold it all together. I bet you can guess what edible structure we are planning to build with these sweet goodies. Looking for a fun way to get into the holiday spirit with your family?  It's never too early to make a candy coated Gingerbread House. In fact, it's just November and we're already getting started on our first of the year. Yes, first. By December this one will be nibbled through and picked apart so it's a must that we have a back-up kit hidden in the pantry. Plus practice makes perfect and were up against some stiff competition. Have you seen the Doozers and their GIANT Gingerbread House? Perfection!

Fruity Feathered Turkey Cookies

Thanksgiving is a short two weeks away so it's time to focus on all things turkey and since my mom has the actual bird under control, I decided to make fun treats for the kiddos to enjoy. This year our traditional Thanksgiving dinner will include family and friends. I'm so excited that one of my closest friends and her family will be joining us. It makes the day even more exciting because we've been attached at the hip for the last year now and our daughters are best of friends as well. I can't wait to see their faces light up when they find these adorable Fruity Feathered Turkey Cookies sitting on their plates. They're the perfect addition to the dessert table and also make for a cute place setting. I just love the colorful feathers made out of fruit roll-ups. These clever treats will give everyone something extra to be thankful for this year!

Pimiento Cheese Green Beans

Last week I started thinking about the annual Thanksgiving feast we have at my mom's house each year. It's typically a full blown foodie fest that ends with you either unbuttoning your pants for extra room or a long nap wherever a comfy spot is available.  From the traditional family dishes made from scratch to the seasonal pumpkin cheesecake, I end up in a blissful food coma almost immediately after cleaning my plate.  Plopping on the couch post-meal to watch the annual parade in a cozy pair of pajamas just comes with the Turkey Day territory.
