A MUST HAVE, Your very own Elf!

Last year I joined the community. An amazing website that helps you plan for not just Christmas but Halloween and Thanksgiving. It is really amazing, and simple. Countdown to Christmas takes you thru the Fall Holidays and Christmas, with a daily task that prepares you and allows you to do all that you want, accomplish what you want and ENJOY! Can you imagine? Well this year it is even better, the creator of 100daystochristmas and (that is a whole other post, hmmm I will have to think about that) anyway, she; Jennifer Tankersley has created an ebook that is interactive with her sites. I had the wonderful opportunity to review her e-book. First let me tell you, you MUST check it out.

"A Daily Dose of Inspiration & Motivation for a Meaningful Holiday Season Based on previous years here at 100 Days to Christmas,this eBook is a journey that begins on September 16,and leads you step-by-step and day-by-day toward a peaceful and meaningful holiday season."

Now, let me tell you why this is brilliant.
The ebook is like having Jennifer, aka your own ELF, with you, giving you a little nudge in the right direction. The breakdown is an assignment 6 days of the week and then my favorite part is the Weekly Workshop, which is a chance to catch up on something you want to do, or maybe one of the daily countdown tasks. That weekly workshop I love, and if you didn't get a task done, you can get back on the countdown track. Seriously, it's like having your very own Elf. She has thought of EVERYTHING, this doesn't just get you ready for Christmas, but Halloween, Thanksgiving, even a reminder for voting. All of it. It really is brilliant. Most of us love Christmas, and want it just so. We want the Holidays to have meaning, we want our children to have memories that are meaningful, or carry on Family Traditions, or create our own. However, life happens, we don't get this done, or we forget until the last minute and then its hustle rush and panic. Why do we do that to ourselves? The daily tasks are broken down to make getting things done into a step by step process that do not require the entire day to do. Even better right? Like I said, your own Elf. Who would not love to have an elf to assist you. You can and the price is one fast food lunch, and trust me on this, you will enjoy it more, not to mention 0 calories. $4.99 will put it on your Kindle, Nook or PDF for your computer. Then sit back and realize that getting ready for the Holidays can be simple and you can enjoy it also!
Finally, thank you Jennifer for the chance to review your ebook. You are amazing. Also, thank you for creating 100daystochristmas, last year was so much easier than past years. I enjoyed the Holidays more and the preparation was enjoyable. Can you imagine? Yes I can, and I am excited for this year!

I think I missed something.....

I believe its called Summer. What happened? I mean I know its been hot, so its been summer, but I have done NOTHING. Okay that is not right, I have not done anything I have wanted to do or get done. This is what I have been doing, building fence. Almost every weekend, and if we are not building fence, we are trying to get stuff caught up around the house. Then when we don't go build fence, the sewer line breaks. Oh that was so much fun. However, I am married to Superman and he fixed it for a less than $150 bucks! Seriously! He is amazing! Then the next weekend comes, and building fence it is. 100 acres of land to fence. UGH.
The next generation learning the ins and outs of running a post pounder on a tractor!
So forgive me and give me a little time to get caught up!
