You mean Christmas is almost here?!?!

Anyone else tend to forget about the holidays until they are literally right around the corner?  I know I do... in fact, I have to share... I have not bought even one gift yet. True story!

We have been sooo busy! Not to mention a lovely transmission problem took out our holiday funds until we get paid again on the 23rd. Yep, that's right...we won't be buying until two days before Christmas!

If you are panic-ing about the upcoming holiday and how you are going to get all those gifts, never fear... jcpenney's has a great solution. Don't panic, just head on over to jcp.com and check out all the great gifts and gift ideas they have for you!

Another thing I love is that I can browse and buy online, and have it shipped to the local jcpenney...then all I have to do is pick it up. NO shipping charges! jcpenney also offers free shipping to home for orders $69+!  If you don 't want to purchase online, you can always check and see if your local store has the item you want in stock.

The category's are great. I know my husband wants some comfy pj's, so that gift is perfect, and all the kids love Pillow Pets.... and of course, I should let my husband check it out, because I LOVE diamond earrings!

I know we'll be rushing around at the last minute, but at least you may not have to. What do you love about the jcpenney last minute gift guide? What gift would you pick?

“I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of jcpenney and received a promotional item to thank me for my participation.”

Monday Meet and Greet- Eco Baby Mama Drama

This week's featured blogger is Bri, from Eco Baby Mama Drama!  Let's learn a little more about her and her blog!

Your Name: Bri

How did you decide on what to name your blog? I knew I wanted something with ‘eco’ and ‘baby’ because my focus when I started was baby products as I was a new mom again and my best friend actually came up with the name and it made me laugh so I ran with it! 

Tell us a little about you...  
Tell us 5 of your favorite things, and 5 of your least favorite things.
Favorite Things:
  • 1. My 3 boys (even though they drive a mama crazy!)
  • 2. Being a stay at home mom
  • 3. Sweets (salty is yummy too!)
  • 4. Watching Law shows
  • 5. Finding a great deal
Least Favorite Things:
  • 1. Mean people
  • 2. Rude people
  • 3. Liars
  • 4. Scalloped Potatoes
  • 5. A huge store that starts with W
When and why did you start blogging? I started my own blog in April after being a contributor on another blog for quite awhile, I wanted to expand the things I was able to write about and what better way to do that then start my own blog and have full control of the topics

 What do you blog about? Pretty much anything that is family friendly, I love environmentally friendly products for reviews especially.

What does your family think of your blog? Do they read it? My immediate family thinks it is great and support me a lot, my extended family doesn’t really get it.  My 13 year old follows me and reads every post (he is an email subscriber!) and my husband proof reads for me sometimes but my extended family doesn’t really follow me.

When do you find the time to blog? I get about a 30 minute window daily between nap time starting and my oldest arriving home from school so finding time is a challenge

What is your favorite blog post ever? Probably this one (http://www.ecobabymamadrama.com/2011/08/positive-diagnosis-update-on-tates.html) it is the update to a 5 part series in which I shared my youngests struggle with c-diff

What has been your biggest blogging challenge? I struggle with every post, I am a very insecure writer and never know if my posts are too long, too short, or just not interesting.  I am also very tech challenged so simply watermarking a picture is difficult for me.

What advice would you give a new blogger? Network, make other blogging friends, they are invaluable

What widget or feature could you not live without? Since I am tech challenged I don’t really use a lot of widgets honestly

What are your favorite blogs to read? I used to read tons of blogs however I rarely am able to now as any free time I have I spend working on my own blog
