Last Minute Sports Fan Gift: Team Printables!

Okay, so luckily my husband NEVER looks at my blog so I can show you a surprise gift I made for him this Christmas.  This is the first time I have made my own printable- I feel so grown up :)  Anyway, as I am trying to decorate the basement, I am trying to keep in mind that technically it is my husband's domain- hey I get the whole upstairs and he has let me do pretty much whatever I want, so I can't complain.  I have been having a hard time figuring out how to make it look good and not tacky with all his sports paraphernalia.  So, I created my own wall art to display all of his favorite teams in one place!  I am really excited to give these to him at Christmas!

These are his 5 favorite sports teams:

Crio Bru for the Holidays

You know those people that just have everything and are so hard to buy for?  I have a few of those in my family...and I always think that the gifts I give them are things they don't really want.  Well, lucky for you I have the perfect gift for just about anyone on your list that is hard to buy for.

I am not a coffee drinker for religious reasons, but I SO wish that I was sometimes.  I love the smell, the taste of coffee-flavored everything, the idea of getting a jolt of energy from a warm drink.  So, when I heard about brewing cocoa beans I was quite interested to say the least.

I then found out that Crio Brü was local and was so excited to go meet with their CEO to learn more about it.  I couldn't believe the long list of health benefits that come from Crio Brü and the extensive research, travel, and preparation that went into creating it!

Let me just break it down for you:

Cocoa beans are jam-packed with antioxidants - which will help your immune system keep your body healthy.

One of my favorite products from Crio Brü was the chocolate covered cocoa beans:

My Birthday Buys

Having my birthday close to Christmas is good and bad.  It is good, because I know that at the end of the year I will be able to get those things that I have been wanting for so long, or I can also combine my birthday and Christmas present to get something more expensive (like an iPad)  Its bad because I can't spend much on myself at all the whole year, then when it is my birthday and Christmas I feel like I am spending too much in myself and feel guilty haha.  But, this year has been perfect so far, and I wanted to share the things I have gotten with my birthday money- especially because some of them are GREAT deals!

To me, iPad cases are like handbags.  I like to switch them up every once in a while for fun.  So, I bought 2 new cases this year and it only cost me just over $20:

Holiday Gift Guide: Little Duck Organics Giveaway

One of the biggest factors of my "mom guilt" often comes from the food I give my kids.  I really do try to get them to eat healthy, whole foods, but it is so hard some days.  Especially during the holidays.  Which is why Little Duck Organics snacks would be the perfect addition to your holiday shopping list!
