It’s that time of year again. Can you believe it? We are just weeks from the holiday season and that means some fun stuff here on ToBeThode!

Just as I have the past several years, I will once again be holding a holiday gift guide. I plan on having products that will be good for kids, for ladies, and hopefully for men too! I only share those items that I find you would love and, as always, give you my full and honest opinions.

So, what does that mean for you?

If you are a blog reader, you are in luck! I will be sharing posts starting early November and you will get to hear about some of the hottest gift ideas this year! Subscribe and follow so you don’t miss a single post.

If you are an advertiser, you can contact me at for information about how to be involved with the 2014 Holiday Gift Guide.

I am so excited for this event and can’t wait to share it with you! Stay tuned for more info!

Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Is there anything you hope to see under the tree this year?

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Recipe

September 30, 2014
pumpkin coffee cake recipe

It seems that this time of year, pumpkin recipes just start popping up. So, while I am helping that trend, I want to tell you one thing… you will want this recipe any time of the year! This is a recipe that takes pumpkin and turns it into a delicious breakfast or even just for a after-dinner dessert. There is nothing better than a delicious breakfast cake. Am I right? Whether a quiet family meal or a gathering of friends, everyone loves a delicious sweet treat… and if they don’t, I don’t want to know about it. I love sweets and having them in the morning in the form of a breakfast cake? Perfection! This one is simple to make and you likely have all […]

#GetGoing with Jif To Go Dippers Contest

jif to go #getgoing

Life is busy. We all have those times when we seem to spend more time outside the house than in it. Go! Go! Go! Jif knows this too and they are offering on-the-go solutions for busy folks. I can’t wait to give them a try myself but my kids are even more ready. We are a busy family and snacks seem to always be with us. The problem we have run into is that it isn’t necessarily something the kids want. I am happy to hear how much they want to try the Jif To Go Dippers. More on that to come though… I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Influence-Central for Jif To Go Dippers. I received a sample to facilitate my review and a […]

Celebrating 11 years of marriage with Lindt HELLO #ItStartedWithHello

September 27, 2014
date night Lindt Hello

Many thanks to Lindt HELLO chocolate for sponsoring today’s story, and giving my readers a chance to win really sweet prizes! My husband and I just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. On September 26, 2003, we were married in a courthouse with my sister and cousin as our witnesses. It wasn’t a big affair and we didn’t even take a honeymoon. Celebrating our anniversary made me think back out how it all started… and it all started with HELLO! About 14 years ago, we came across each other in a very unromantic place, a gas station. My husband was working there and I was a customer. You wouldn’t think that saying HELLO would lead to a marriage with 3 beautiful children, right? But it can! […]

We are making the world a softer place and you can too! #LetsSnuggle gift basket giveaway

September 26, 2014

When you think of doing laundry, what do you think of? Is it the actual act of doing the laundry or the smells that are in your clothes afterwards? One thing that I really do love about laundry is the smell of my fabric softener… Snuggle! Snuggle has some amazing scents and it makes the act of doing laundry, which I don’t care for, so much better. I am a member of Team Snuggle and received a free product from Snuggle. All thoughts and opinions are my own. We are celebrating Snuggle Bear’s birthday in our house. Did you know that he is 30 years old?!? That’s right. Snuggle Bear has been making your (and my) laundry softer for 30 years. I remember being a child […]
