Happy Thanksgiving and Operation Smile

Disclaimer: This post is sponsored by All opinions are my own.

Hey wonderful readers! I hope you are having a wonderful week preparing for Thanksgiving. Last minute we decided to host my family for the first time. I'm hoping it all turns out well.

Over the summer I told you about a really cool company,

They offer 
-textbook rentals for 40-90% off bookstore prices
-FREE shipping both ways
-flexible retal periods
-and they also donate to Operation Smile with each rental

Well with the winter semester coming up quickly after the holidays, now is a great time for you to check out to save on your (or your kids') textbooks.

Plus they have a new program, Rent Back, where you can let them rent a book you own to other students and YOU get paid! On average you can make 2-4x what selling the book back would get you! How awesome is that, you can earn money on your books. Who couldn't use some extra cash after the holidays?!

And also a quick highlight of Operation Smile. My husband is a hard man to shop for so for the past couple years, my mom has made a charitable donation in my husband's name as a present to him. He really appreciates it. He would much rather money go to a good place than to something he may not like or need. Anyway, if you have someone like that in your life, consider making a donation to Operation Smile.

Operation Smile is an amazing organization that works to provide safe, effective and free cleft palate and cleft lip repairs for children around the world. I didn't know this, but either of these malformations can be life threatening as it is difficult to eat. Every child deserves not only a chance to thrive, but also the chance to smile! So if you are looking for an organization to donate to during this season of giving, check out Operations Smile and change a child's life!

Go HERE to donate now! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

Oreo Trifle

oreo trifle
Last week was my husband’s birthday. He had been out of town all week on a business trip and was coming home on his birthday so I wanted to make him something special. He’s tough when it comes to desserts. He isn’t picky, he just doesn’t get excited by most desserts – brownies, cookies, cake. Sure he’ll eat a bit, but not be excited by them – not special. So I pondered long and hard about what he loves and what would make him feel special and loved on his birthday.

Oreo Trifle!

It was a hit! He gasped and started salivating. Not really, but he did ask me, “Oooo, Is that for me? Can I have some?” Smile 

It wasn’t complicated and my son had fun helping me put it together. It was also delicious!

Oreo Trifle
  • Brownies
  • Chocolate Pudding (the instant kind)
  • Cool Whip
  • Crushed Oreos
All you do is prepare the brownies and pudding according to the directions. Once they are done layer (I did 3 layers) in order; brownies, pudding, cool whip, oreos.
