Let it Snow

It was 6am on Black Friday. Tall Dad was out at work, and I was as far away from malls and shoppers as possible.

Being Thankful

There's nothing like Thanksgiving. Food, family, and best of all - it's officially socially acceptable to be blaring holiday songs and decorating your house with Christmas flair (though, as many of you know, I have been listening to the tunes for quite some time!)

On Thanksgiving Eve, Tall Dad and I shared a great laugh about how different the holidays have been in each decade in our lives.

You know that saying, "I'm so poor that I'm po - I can't even afford the extra O and an R."  That's me.  Between having a kid, using up most of my savings for a down payment on our new house, buying all new crap for the house, and then doing some renovations - I've pretty much exhausted every ounce of my funds.  Tall Mom and I are going to have to be creative in our ways to save money all over again for the holidays.  With that in mind, Walmart has actually been a huge help in our endeavor with the help of the Walmart Best Plans.  Hit the jump for our top five ways we're going to save...

Top 5 Movies I Can't Wait To Share With My Son {Guest Post}

I love movies. I love the cinema. I love going into a dark room and being enveloped in another world for 2-3 hours.  There's something so romantic (Beethoven, not Sleepless in Seattle) about losing one's self into something that is wholly unearthly for such a short period of time. Although, Tall Mom and I fell in love with each other over her obsession with Yoda presenting his lightsaber in combat for the first time against Count Dooku in Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones.  Sad, but true. Lessons can be learned, Truths (yes, capital T) can be explored, and one can be broken, defined and redefined all in a reasonable 120 minute masterpiece experience.  It's magical.  But this got me thinking, while I love watching movies with Tall Mom, there are some movies that I cannot wait to show my son.  Hit the jump to find out my surprising top 5....

I need to open an extra savings account, start a coin jar, and probably open a college savings fund. All because my kid is most likely going to Harvard. He's wicked smart. At a mere 18 months, he can tell me if he wants me to read him a different book, prefers frozen waffles over yogurt for breakfast, or if he'd like to take a stroll around the block while wearing his shoes.  Hit the jump to find out how...
