DVD Heaven

I am excvited for all of the new DVDs coming out this season. I am still wanting A Christmas Carole I missed out last week on it so hoping a deal is still around for it. I am going to buy Santa Paws this week and then next week is Fantasia. I love the flamingos in it!
We have snow and ice and ice and snow. I have not bought anything for Thanksgiving dinner yet. I was going to but with visiting Jo in the hospital and my Dr. visits and then the weather well I just have not had time. I am thinking after reading a friends blog that Chinese might be the way to go!
I did the mamogram last Saturday and have been waiting for a call for the all clear. I got the call today but found out I have to go back to get one more *mushagram* sideways view. If that is not clear then they will do an ultrasound. Pray for clear results.
I am still waiting for my Hyserectomy on December 3rd. I just had a cycle from November 3rd to still spotting as of today. This is just insane with how long I go and I will not miss this part of being a woman. Hey who wants to go panty shopping with me? :) I just realized that tomorrow was originally my surgery day. Dr. Greene was not able to find an assistant so I got bumped to December 3rd.

I have been cleaning and cleaning yet I seem to be getting no where. I am not sure what is going on. I get rid of 2 boxes of junk and another box appears all over the house. I have to get my house in order this weekend so my tree can go up next week.
I am going to get a mani/pedi when I have the house done just before I have surgery. If I am going to be down for a few weeks I want to have nice hands and feet. I am also going to color my hair back to brown. The last hi-lights were way to much and I am kind of a crack head looking washed out blond. :) See I posted a picture so you can all see.
I am excited for some of the products I have been getting to or will be getting to review. I am working hard to make sure I get to try all that I can and give my opinions about. Who would of thought that the shy Daphne I was in high school would be as outspoken as I am now?
Oh here is a great Disney deal for you all. On Tuesday Disney is releasing A Christmas Carol. The 4 pack DVD/BluRay will be $29.99 at Target. Go on over to Disney Movie Rewards and you can download a coupon for $10 off the 4 pack! There are also a couple of rebates that will be out there as well.

I Love to Shop Cheap!

I love to shop for bargains. I get so excited when a really great deal comes my way and no one has got the deal before me. Today at Safeway I saw the Grands Biscuits on sale for $2.00 each. With the Safeway card they were on sale 2/ $3.00 or $1.50 each.  Then they were marked down an additional 50% off being as they are close dated. That brought them down to 2/$1.50 or .75 each. I then found coupons in the monthly Safeway coupon deals book for $1.00 off 2. Final cost for the Grands Biscuits? 2/.50 or .25 each.
As I was writting this I noticed the cashier messed up on the price so I will bring my receipt and biscuits back to the store and have them rering the biscuits or they can give me a refund for all of them.

Featuring Norah Jones CD Review

 I love Norah Jones and her sultry voice. When I got the CD today in the mail I tore open the package and started to play it right away.
I was so excited to get this CD being as it is a complition of songs recorded over Norah's entire career from 2001 to 2010. With this CD Norah Jones sings everyting from jazz to country to hip-hop to rock. It will have something for everyone who listens to music.
The CD has such great artist as Willie Nelson, The Foo Fighters, OutKast, Q-Tip, Ray Charles, Dolly Parton, and Herbie Hancock. How many artist today can make a great CD with that much versitality?
I will be honest and say there are a couple of songs that I do not care for but the majority of songs show Norah Jones at her best with her amazing vocal range. Her duet with Ray Charles is my favorite! *Baby It's Cold Outside* has never been sung with such a great combination of soul and country. Wait *Here We Go Again* with Ray Charles might be my favorite song. I mean who does not love Ray? Then again Creepin' In sung with Dolly parton is totally amazing.
