Great Stocking Stuffers - Last Minute Orders from Amazon!

This post may contain affiliate links.

I'm done with my Christmas shopping, but I know many of you are still looking for those last minute gifts or stocking stuffers. Here's a few I would recommend that qualify for Prime shipping so you will get them in time for Christmas:

Valentia Even Glow Serum - $35

I am extremely skeptical about skin products, especially if it costs more than $5 - $10. But I have been using this skin serum for about 2 months now and it works! It evens out my skin. My complexion is more even. The surface of my skin is smoother. I love how it feels going on. It's not messy or oily. It's absorbed into my skin immediately and works in a short period of time.

The solution is slightly orange and a thicker liquid consistency. You dot your face with the product then rub it all in at the same time. It doesn't leave any residue but rather makes my face glow after applying. There is no stinging. I had no negatives about this product at all.

This is a great stocking stuffer for someone who appreciates high-quality skin products.

Yalmeh Super Youth Eye Cream - $17.25

Most eye creams it seems are outrageously expensive. I want to prevent further damage, possibly undo some existing issues and generally make my skin feel amazing, but not at the expense of more important things like putting food on the table for my family, you know? That's one of the great things about Yalmeh's Super Youth Eye Cream. The small size is just $17.25 right now and if you buy the larger size, you get double the amount of cream but it's only $24.95.

This product claims to help get ride of black circles, broken capillaries, fine lines and wrinkles. I can't tell you that I've seen huge evidence of these claims. However, I feel as if it does a good job protecting and replenishing my skin so it is accomplishing the main results I want in an eye cream. But they also offer a 90-day money back guarantee if you don't get the results you are looking for.

Every Man Jack Thickening Shampoo - $10.15

If you're shopping for men like I am. Sometimes they're stockings can be a challenge. A couple of years ago I discovered Every Man Jack men's grooming products and now I know exactly where I need to go when I need these kinds of things for my men.

Not only does it smell great, it also works hard on those difficult men smells and skin challenges. I buy this as a gift for the guys, but in the end it's actually a gift for me!

MD Anderson Arrival - Waiting to See Doctor

Joey and I drove to Houston yesterday . . . after making sure our kids and animals were all taken care of, which is always a bigger deal than I anticipate it being. It's been a long time since Joey and I have had the chance to "get away" just the two of us, so even with the reason for the trip, it was nice to drive and chat and stop at Collin Street Bakery and Cooper Farms store and eat at Cracker Barrel as if we were on a vacation.

If you've ever taken an anti-anxiety medication, you know the strange feeling of knowing academically that the facts should be upsetting to you, but feeling inexplicably calm in the face of those still upsetting facts. It isn't truly inexplicable, though, as you took a medication that is formulated to do that very thing. However, recently I have found myself experiencing this very same feeling without any medication, and I am confident that it is the definition of "peace that passes understanding."

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 …

I Cried the First Time I Watched My Son Wrestle

My middle son, Colt, told me not too long ago that he wanted to wrestle. We are a sports family, but wrestling has never been one of those sports. AND this child is on the spectrum . . . now, all that really means for him is that he's not going to pick up on any social hints you drop, he's incredibly literal, and he's finicky about sensations. Yes, the child who is finicky about sensations told me he wanted to wrestle - where people are constantly touching you and holding you down and forcing your body into positions you don't want it to be in. But I have always determined that I would not hold my children back by forcing artificial boundaries on them that they don't have for themselves - so if the boy wanted to wrestle, we were going to let him try it out.

A couple of weekends ago, we went to his first wrestling tournament. I was so naive. We were supposed to be there at 9 am, and, in all seriousness, I made plans for 11 am. I thought we would walk in, he would h…
