Can You Help Me Find a Deal?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TiVo. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you've been reading long, you know that when I quit work to stay home with the kids, we cut out all unnecessary expenses. One of the things we cut was cable, but I knew that I would forever and always be getting interrupted while watching tv so we went in search of a DVR that would work with network television.

We found TiVo.

We bought the basic box at Best Buy and got a full mail-in rebate. Cha-ching!

Then we signed up for three years of service ahead of time and got a DEEP discount. Unfortunately this past April, those three years were up. So now we are paying month-to-month again.

And we have practically worn out our TiVo box and remote.

Recently, TiVo came out with a Premiere box. I would love to replace our box with this new one - in time for all the Fall TV season premieres would be great! I love that the new box ties directly into Netflix so we wouldn't have to switch over to our Wii  to use it . .  and it has an incredible search function that lets you look up people, genres, movie titles, etc.

So, if you come across a STEAL (it needs to be close to FREE for this household) please let me know.

In the meantime, you can Enter to Win a NEW TiVo Slide Remote. (And become a Facebook Fan here.)

  1. I'll be the last person to find out anything but wish you well and success in your search. We need to switch our old TiVo for the new but haven't quite made the leap yet.

Extravagantly . . . A Personal Post

There haven't been many personal posts from me in quite some time. I find I can't schedule them; I simply have to wait until it comes pouring from my emotions through my brain and into my fingertips.

Apparently today, I have something to say.

I've been reading a really challenging book with an unusual title. Brace yourself - it'sGod and Boobs by Angie Schuller-Wyatt. Yep, Schuller, as in Robert Schuller of the Crystal Cathedral. It's written by his granddaughter. I was a little wary when I received a copy to review. Honestly I was afraid it was going to be irreverent at best and unbiblical at worst. But I haven't found that to be true. In fact, I've been very surprised to find it challenging and encouraging of me as a believer and as a woman - fully and completely, a woman.

One of the things that it mentioned is how often we misinterpret the verse "Guard your heart for out of it are all the issues of life." Growing up this verse was used regularly …

A Christmas Post

This year as Christmas has approached, I have found myself thinking of Mary. Being the mom of three boys, I think it’s easier for me to put myself in her place . . . and yet, who can imagine what that was really like?
I grew up in a very conservative group of believers who eschewed any focus on Mary in order to counteract what they saw as “worship” of Mary by Catholics and Episcopals and some other more liturgical beliefs.
But you can’t deny Mary had an experience that no one before her and no one after her will ever have. She had a unique relationship with Jesus. She was his mom.
Think about the facts as real life and not some story in a book you’ve heard a million times.
Mary was barely a teenager.She had never had sex.An angel appeared to her and told her she was having a baby.Mary is pregnant in a society that KILLS unwed mothers.Mary may have only barely known Joseph as their engagement was likely arranged . . . and he was probably much older. She had to go to this man and try to …

AMAZING Disney Fish Extender Gift Ideas

Being new to the Disney traveler's world meant being new to the FE world . . . and as we researched how we were going to participate in the FE that is a part of our cruise, we came across a lot of good FE ideas so I thought I would share them.

Disney Earrings - there are all kinds and many of them are one-of-a-kind but these are a novelty that I know I would love to get as an FE from someone else

Vintage Mickey Mouse Earrings - $3.99 MindieMay
Disney Character Clothes Pins - These would work well to close bags that hold other FE gifts or you could put a magnet on the back of each one and everyone could use them as note holders on the walls of their stateroom. Super cute - this vendor does a really good job with them.
Disney Character Clothes Pins-  OneMoreSunshine
Wave Phone Holders - If you need more information on what these are, you can see my previous post Top 5 Disney Necessities. Basically these are simple holders for a phone that Disney provides which is a cross between a cell p…
