Catchin Up With Karrie / Massive Christmas Toy Price drops, Survival series, Taquitos and more


Hello friends! I am still getting eggs everyday from my 4 chickens..and I even got what I think is the worlds tiniest chicken egg. Isn’t it cute?There was no yoke inside, just the egg white.

It’s nearly Christmas and I am enjoying this time of year  – well…all except the cold weather. It’s been freezing! I have been super busy the past few weeks with volunteering and working with my daughter’s Nutcracker ballet here in the Tri-cities. I had so much fun just getting to take my littlest son to the show, watch my daughter dance and hear the live symphony music. It was magical I tell ya!   This time of year I also really love the Christmas music. And all the lights It’s so beautiful. I hope you are enjoying time with your families (even with the crazy to-do lists)  and trying to make some nice memories together too. Here are this weeks best deals!



I shared all about how my chickens are doing with this cold winter weather – and what I am doing to keep them warm.


I am also sharing a challenge I tried out this summer for not going to the store. Here are the 3 posts thus far in this series:

Stay tuned next week for the rest of the series. :)
