Easy Weeknight Beef and Broccoli #Labels4Edu #Shop

Has school started for your kids yet? If not, is it soon? Emma went back on August 11th.  It's definitely been a transition for BOTH of us.  It's always so hard getting back into the swing of a change in schedule.  Really, it's been a smooth transition to 6th grade Yay! I have always said that we have been beyond blessed with Emma's school and her teachers.  Living in Phoenix, we have suffered the worst of the real estate bubble burst and our schools (among other services) have faced major budget cuts.  These cuts effect all of us and I am really glad that there are companies out there that find ways to give to our schools! Labels for Education makes it really easy to help our schools!

Back to School with Nordstrom Rack! (and a contest!)

disclaimer: This post has been sponsored by Nordstrom Rack but my thoughts are my own.
 Who doesn't love to find fabulous clothing at a bargain (especially brand names and still within the current trends)? Nordstrom Rack helps connect you with amazing designer clothing at a great price (up to 70% off!) all while providing you with legendary Nordstrom customer service! I have a Tween GIRL. GIRL!!! She's very difficult to buy for and it's not because she is picky but because she's right at that age where clothing falls in the "too childish" or "too adult" categories! I want to keep her age appropriate but frankly, tweens are a hard age to buy for! Nordstrom Rack provides so many fantastic options at great prices! I thought I would share with you some of my favorite back to school outfits for Emma (Oh and something new for me, too!) I have found on Nordstrom Rack's website for under $100!

How to Save Money with Paperless Coupons #WalgreensPaperless #Cbias #Shop

I've been trying to find ways to save money so I can achieve a few financial goals.  I am really trying to focus on my debt and get it all paid down so I can buy a home (either a townhome or a patio home) next year.  I follow quite a few coupon bloggers and I am always impressed by how much they save! As much as I am inspired by them... I am just not organized enough to clip coupons and organize with sales.  I have been looking at ways to coupon along without the time suck that is coupon clipping and Walgreens' paperless coupons helps me save!

Shopping For a New Car? Show your #NewCarFace & Enter to Win UP TO $25,000!

This post is sponsored by Cars.com but all opinions are my own

A few years ago, I got into a car accident and totalled out my beloved Saturn SL2.  I loved it.  It was paid in full and was a good car that just kept on going! I was so sad but at the same time... NEW CAR! I purchased a new Hyundai Accent, which I like but it's a few years old and it's a bit too small.  I honestly wish I had purchased the Elantra.

Robin Williams - It's Been an Honor

I wasn't sure if I was going to write anything about Robin Williams' passing this soon but I decided to go ahead.   As many of you know, I am a huge movie, TV, music and book fan.  I've always escaped into other worlds thanks to these various forms on entertainment.  As an introvert, I become very engrossed with characters, movies, plots, etc. and I do become somewhat attached.  I've always adored Robin Williams.  When he acts- you can see he puts every bit of himself into it.  I loved Awakenings, Patch Adams, Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, Good Morning, Vietnam... shall I bother to continue?
