Would You Mind An Old Label???

It appears that Bath & Body Works is re-doing all of their labels for their Signature Collection products. So they are trying to move out the products still left in stock with the old labels. If the label is not important to you (me either...LOL) than you can really get some deals!!

After you add any of the full size Signature Collection products to your cart you will see the price drop to just $3.00 per product at checkout!! A great deal!! The regular price on most products is about $9.50-$10.50.

They still have alot left in many scents...lots of shower gels, lotions, body splash, bubble bath, body creams, and more!! Better hurry I am sure at these prices the products will sell out quickly!! You can view all of the Signature Collection products here.

These are great to have on hand for upcoming Mother's Day baskets, teachers gifts, or when you need a nice quick gift last minute!!

Also if you spend $15 or more....add any Optimism product to your bag and use code OPTIMISM to get they item FREE (Up to $13.00 value). You can view all of the Optimism products here.

**Just to give you an idea on the shipping....I had 6 items in my cart and shipping was $6.99. So it adds about a dollar an item roughly.

Looking for something fun, festive, and free to do this weekend? With the kiddies in mind, of course!! How about heading over to your local AC Moore tomorrow for thier Make N Take Jewlery Craft.

The Easiest, Yummiest French Toast!!

Thrifty Jinxy

My sister used to work at a Bed & Breakfast many years ago and shared this great recipe with me a while back. It takes an old favorite French Toast and gives it a bit of a twist!! I have made it time and time again, each and every time tasting more delicious than ever!! It's so simple and easy to make too!!

All you need is:

-A loaf of Cinnamon Raisin Bread or Cinnamon Swirl Bread (If you do not care for raisins)
-One package of cream cheese (8 oz.), softened
-3 Eggs (cracked and beaten in a bowl)
-Powdered Sugar

Simply take a piece of bread and smear some cream cheese on a little generous...but not too heavy! Then take another piece of bread and place it on top of the cream cheese to make a sandwich. Then dip the sandwich in the egg dip. Make a few of these....we usually eat one per person as they are very filling.

Then place in a heated frying pan, we spray a little Pam on the pan first. Brown a little on each side then remove from pan cut in half, and sprinkle the top with a dash of confectioners sugar. Top with a small dab of butter and a little syrup. We also usually serve with a side of strawberries or fruit salad.

You can see many more Thrifty Thursday posts over at The Thrifty Jinxy.

Our Trip to The Warmer Temperatures......

And too think that this time last week we were 'en route back to our home town with a high temperature that day of just 22 degrees......When we left Key West it was in the 70's!!! Oh how we are so jealous of my sister and her family who get to enjoy the warm weather all year long....LOL LOL

Here are just a few pictures of our trip........until next time we get to go!!

Lots more Wordless Wednesday pictures can be seen here!! Have a great day!!

Great For the Stove.....

Do not ask me what I was thinking when I was so excited to get a black stove in my kitchen a little while back. I had previously had a white stove and it was very hard to keep clean....especially being gas and all!! So I thought black was the way to go!!

We use our stove daily for meals so it can really get a bit dirty in no time at all!! I hate to use a green pad on the stove, in fear that it may scratch the stove top.....(As per the owners manual...and I am too chicken to try one on it!!) So I needed to find another alternative way to keep my stove top clean.

So now I buy a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser....cut it into about 5 even pieces and use that to clean off any goop left on my stove after meals. It works great!!! And not a scratch at all is ever left on my stove!! The magic eraser is so soft. Plus, there is no need for chemicals either!!

Here is a before picture of my stove top burner:

And here is the after shot: Shiny and Clean!!

Here is the piece of Magic Eraser that I used to clean the stove off with.......Yuck!!

Lots more Works For Me Wednesday's can be seen over at Rocks In My Dryer!!
