Whether your weekend will consist of connecting with family, wishing you were connecting with family or enjoying a weekend of silence for your soul.


Here are interesting reads, creative ideas, and fun activities from across the web.



♦  No family this Thanksgiving?  Plan the perfect “Friends”giving or “Fakes”giving.  Read more at NPR or at the Huffington Post.


♦  Before you hit the road, read Tips for Driving in the Snow by Jodi Grundig at Family Travel Magazine.


♦  Craft adorable handmade, Reindeer Thumbprint Ornaments like the ones found at Mom Vs. The Boys.


♦  Order your unique, photo Christmas cards at Cardstore.  I love Cardstore.  Read how I schedule all of my cards a year in advance!


♦  Watch A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving!  Or for a decidedly non-kid Thanksgiving movie watch Planes, Trains and Automobiles


♦  Consider giving the Gift of Adventure with Little Passports.  A great non-toy alternative for kids ages 4 years to 12 years.  Your recipient will receive a new adventure in the mail every month for a year.  Save $20 with the code: WARMUP


♦  Use Ebates to earn cash back on all your online purchases this holiday season.  It’s simple to use.  I will be using this for all my online purchases and the cash back will help when those bills come due in January.


♦  Take a walk.  Get outside.  Enjoy the fresh air.  Stroll hand-in-hand with your loved ones.
