November 2018 - My WAHM Plan

Holiday Cleaning is easy with Mrs. Meyer's scents + Free Holiday Set


It's that time of year again.  I bet your house is buzzing with activity, just like mine. Thoughts of hosting out-of-town guests, throwing holiday parties, cookie exchanges, and decorating the mantle has put me in complete nesting mode!

Not surprisingly, my desire to have a clean, welcoming home intensifies in November. Call me crazy, but there is just something deeply satisfying when I step out of a just cleaned room that sparkles and smells good.

Help Maintain Your Blood Sugar Levels this Holiday Season

This post is sponsored by Depend, Poise, Ensure, and Glucerna but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.


The countdown to the most wonderful time of the year has finally arrived! My fall and holiday baking season will truly begin now and requests for my family’s favorite pies, cobblers, loaves of bread and cookies coming in. I’ve already baked a Pumpkin Pie, brownies and a dozen cookies. While I love having sweet treats on hand, I want to be aware of my sugar intake and theirs. Some of my close family members had or have prediabetes and type 2 Diabetes, so I’ve learned the importance of being aware of your blood sugar levels throughout the day and how certain foods and drinks can help minimize blood sugar spikes now and throughout the holiday season.

Prep your holiday table linens with Biz Stain Fighter

We are in the preliminary stages of planning our Thanksgiving day here and for me and my girls that means choosing which tablecloth and napkin set, we’ll use this year.  We all have our favorites and it really won’t matter to me which ones we choose as long as they are clean and wrinkle-free.  I love table linens and was fortunate enough to be gifted some vintage tablecloths from my Grandmother in Law and three handmade doilies from my Grandmother. 

The fact that she crocheted these doilies herself make them even more special to me, so I decided early on to bring them out only during the holidays to preserve their beauty. Sadly, there was a staining mishap the last time I had them out. I didn’t realize there was a stain until the next day, so it set in and I was afraid it may never come out until I remembered, I’m a Biz Stain Fighter Ambassador! Read on to see how you can prep your holiday linens with Biz just like I did.

Serve this Parmigiano Reggiano cheese plate for any occasion



Long before I became a Parmesan Ambassador, I fell in love with the amazing taste and texture of the King of cheese. I absolutely love parmesan, but not all parmesan is true Parmigiano Reggiano. Read on to discover where true Parmigiano Reggiano cheese comes from, its ingredients and what to look for at your local store before buying. Plus, I’m sharing my super easy cheese plate idea that even kids will eat.

Prepare for cold and flu season by stocking up on essentials

It’s hard to believe that in ten short days, my daughters will be on fall break from school. For my family, this break marks the official end of summer and the slow and steady descent into holiday mode. It starts with Halloween prep and party fun and slowly gains momentum from there. We all love this time of year, but one thing we don’t love is getting sick. Coughs, colds, runny noses, sore throats, strep and the biggie- Flu are no joke. They can enter your home easily and linger for days or weeks. The dreaded “bug” season is upon us! It’s time to think ahead and prepare for cold and flu season by stocking up on essentials.

Happy November and Happy Friday my friends! October was such a beautiful month in my region of Tennessee that I’m still doing gardening chores outside, but the nights are starting to have that wonderful crisp November feel to them. That’s perfect book reading weather for me and I’ve just finished a really good book I want to share with you today. Since its Friday- I’m also giving away a copy of Good Better Best – The Rags to Riches story of the Upscale Resale Queen Sue McCarthy.
