It’s time to rush to the store and load up on half-priced Halloween candy! Halloween is over which means it’s time to get festive! This is honestly my favorite time of the year. I have so much going on this month and lots to share! Let’s get started, shall we…
No Shave November
This event helps raise awareness to cancer and how some cancer patients lose their hair during treatment.
The goal of No-Shave November is to grow awareness by embracing our hair, which many cancer patients lose, and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle.
The rules of No-Shave November are simple: put down your razor for 30 days and donate your monthly hair-maintenance expenses to the cause. Strict dress-code at work? Don’t worry about it! We encourage participation of any kind; grooming and trimming are perfectly acceptable.

This is such a great way to bring awareness to such a horrible disease ans also a awesome and unique way to support people that are fighting cancer. I urge you to register and or donate to this worthwhile cause.
The Nutcracker And The Four Realms
Is anyone else beyond excited for this movie? It comes out today and stars Mackenzie Foy as Clara and Morgan Freeman as Drosselmeyer. This would be the perfect family Holiday movie to get everyone in the spirit.
All Clara wants is a key – a one-of-a-kind key that will unlock a box that holds a priceless gift from her late mother. A golden thread, presented to her at godfather Drosselmeyer’s annual holiday party, leads her to the coveted key-which promptly disappears into a strange and mysterious parallel world. It’s there that Clara encounters a soldier named Phillip, a gang of mice and the regents who preside over three Realms: Land of Snowflakes, Land of Flowers, and Land of Sweets. Clara and Phillip must brave the ominous Fourth Realm, home to the tyrant Mother Ginger, to retrieve Clara’s key and hopefully return harmony to the unstable world.
We are headed to the theaters this weekend to see this. Look for a review coming soon!!
This is my husband’s favorite Holiday, he loves turkey. We normally go all out for Thanksgiving and have a TON of leftovers that we recycle into different recipes. what are some of your favorite ways to use Thanksgiving leftovers? I have a Holiday inspired recipe board on Pinterest. It’s full of festive and delicious recipes. Feel free to save and share any pins that you love.
