Happy Thursday! Sometimes I like to call it Friday Eve because the weekend is so close you can smell it.
Here are the three things I am loving this Thursday:
Every Thursday night we have family game nights. I usually cook a big supper and then afterwards we all play a board game together. The girls look forward to it every week and so do Chris and I. We take turns picking out the board game and this week Elizabeth chose to play Googly Eyes. This was our first time playing it but was so much fun, it’s easily added to our favorite board game category and made my Thursday Three. Nana and Papa Bolin joined us tonight and we had a nice evening together with lots of laughs. Find the game here.
I love a good manicure, but I am also cheap and hate paying $20 every two weeks to keep my nails looking good. One of my teacher friends was telling me I should try the imPRESS nails and I had never even heard of them, so I immediately went to Wal-Mart after school that day and tried them. I can’t believe I didn’t know about these nails?!?!?!? I like them because they were super easy to put on and they have great reviews. I am anxious to see how they hold up because I am pretty rough on my nails. There are lots of options to choose from and at only $6 a pop, I’ll be able to keep my nails looking good on a budget. Find them here.
The last thing I am loving this week is Zoolerts. This is a free online web service that will send you alerts when a product becomes available online or in a store. One of Emily’s main items on her Christmas list this year is a Hatchimal. I have been looking EVERYWHERE for one of these creatures since the beginning of October knowing they would be a hot item for this Christmas season. I was not having any luck at any stores from here to Cape and was getting really discouraged. They were on Amazon, but I wasn’t about to pay $200 for one when they are normally $49.99. This is when I began searching online and found Zoolerts. I simply signed up to receive texts from every store that carries the hatchimals any time they were in stock online. When I say any time, I mean any time: midnight, 6:00 a.m., 2:00 p.m.~ it didn’t matter~ my phone was constantly going off with alerts! It took me about 2 weeks of receiving texts and hurrying to put one in my cart before I was able to successfully order one! I was so excited and I know Emily will be one happy little girl on Christmas morning. If you have a top selling Christmas toy you are looking for, you might want to check out Zoolerts here.
