It’s Okay #5 Featuring Infographic From Marriott

Nugget On A Budget

It’s okay…

…that I managed to snag one gift so far for Hanukkah – but the kids are going to have to share it!

…to wonder why parents can’t manage to do the carpool line correctly.

…to be waiting for the leaves to change color.

…to laugh at the lady riding her bike while walking her dog.

…that I don’t remember which Lego set Zachary said he wants the most.

…to be planning two giveaways this week!

…that I finished my scarf I was knitting (will share it soon) and I have already started a sweater! Same yarn, some same colors, some different.

…that the big kids are off school Thursday and Friday. We’re planning a nature walk / hike on Thursday and on Friday Zachary has a Cub Scout program.

…to think that infographics are fun. Here’s one powered by Marriott:

…to link up with Kera and Amber!

…and to introduce you today to Pamela.

I met Pamela through the blogging bigs and littles program and I think her blog is beautiful! She blogs about her marriage and her kids and recently shared this adorable DIY skeleton costume! I’m looking forward to hearing about her recent trip to Puerto Rico!

This month I asked my sponsors 3 travel related questions. Pamela says:

If you could travel anywhere, where would you go? Europe. I've always wanted to go there and many other places but Europe was the first place that came to mind.

Where have you previously traveled that you loved and would return to? We're just getting back from Puerto Rico and that's a place I will never get tired of. As well as my native land Dominican Republic, we had our wedding there. We've been to Costa Rica. Short of Amazing of course and would definitely go back.

Do you have any upcoming travel plans? We just got back from Puerto Rico early October and are planning a trip to Dominican Republic early in 2014.

Go visit Pamela and tell her I sent you!

I have two infographics I am going to be sharing soon and I know what you mean they are truly very fun. And god bless you, I still haven't started Christmas Shopping yet. Have a feeling I am going to be doing it all last minute this year!

Hanukkah is a month earlier than Christmas this year!

Janine Huldie said...

I know it starts before Thanksgiving I believe. So, I probably don't have the right to be freaking yet, because I still have more time, but usually half way done or more by now. Totally slacking this year!

Ugh Carpool lane! I don't have kids, but I used to drop my brother off when I was in high school and he was in middle school. It drove me crazy when the people got out of the car, but had to get their book bag out of the trunk then had to go back and talk to their mom.

I love when the leaves change colors!

Dara said...

that is almost what's happening by me - but my kid is in preschool. The parents get out of the cars if they're in the back of the line, and walk up to get their kid. only then the people behind them have to pull around them to get to the front!

Dara said...

I could write a whole post about it, but I might offend some of my friends!

I can definitely see that as being a pet peeve of mine when Reagan gets to the age where carpools are necessary. Ugh ... I have a hard enough time just getting her out of the gym daycare!

The Renegades ride bikes and walk the dog.

I love infographics too! It doesn't matter what they are, I'll read them because they're fun.
God help me when the girls get to big school. I have a foul mouth in the car!
