We woke up at 3:00am (well Kevin did, I decided to just stay up all night) and managed to get ready and left our apartment by 3:34am. It takes about 10 minutes or so for us to get to Kohls and the doors open at 4:00am, so we were making good time. There wasn't much traffic on the roads, so all is well :DWhen we pulled into Kohls parking lot, it was already filled with cars! I have never seen the parking lot at Kohls so packed before.

Wow, it's that time of the year again. How time flies. One moment you are enjoying a nice summertime backyard BBQ and in a blink of an eye, Thanksgiving is less than a week away. Before you know it, Christmas will be here! Oh I love the holiday season, don't you? It's a time when family can get together and spend time with each other. It's also a great time to get away for a family vacation. Thinking of gong somewhere this holiday season? I know just the place for you. Head over to Branson, Missouri to celebrate the holiday season together with your family in the warmth and comfort of an Ozark Mountain Christmas! Both the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing as well as the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel is currently offering some really amazing and value for money packages, customized just for you and your family this holiday season.
Among all the packages offered, this is my favorite. Check out the "With It’s a Wonderful Life" package. Starting at $329 per night and running from Nov 15 thru Dec 23, you’ll experience the ultimate holiday getaway for shopping, relaxation and entertainment. It includes breakfast as well as a Branson Landing passport loaded with discounts at dozens of shops and restaurants along with a treatment at Aspire Medical Spa. Mmm mmmm, a spa treatment and shopping, sounds like something right up my alley.

First, you would need to butterfly some skinless chicken breast. Then, sprinkle on some salt and black pepper, just a little pinch.
Next, lay a piece of ham on one side of the chicken. If the ham doesn't fit that well, you can just cut it to shape.
Then, sprinkle on some cheese. The original recipe calls for swiss cheese but I used some shredded mozzarella instead. It's equally as good.
Cover the cheese with another piece of ham.

It's that time of the year again. With the holiday season coming up real soon, it's time we start thinking about getting Christmas gifts for everybody. Don't get me wrong, I love giving gifts. It's the crowds at the mall and long lines at the checkout counters that I don't like. That's why, I usually do a lot of my holiday shopping online. I do not have to worry about the crowds or driving from one mall to another, just to find that perfect gift. You can imagine my excitement when I found out about the Dirt Devil Holiday Gift Guide. Also known as the Dirt Devil 2009 Guide to Red Hot Online Shopping Shortcuts, it's like the ultimate guide to online shopping! Everything you ever wanted to know about online shopping is in this guide.
There is just so much information packed into those 12 pages, it's pretty amazing. There are over 300 websites, tricks and clever ways to save when you shop online. You can find a list of Black Friday and Cyber Monday websites as well as Deal A Day websites. That's really helpful if you want to know what will be on sale on Black Friday or Cyber Monday, way ahead of time. I also like the section about promo code tricks and how to find them on the net. I definitely learnt a trick or two after reading that! The best thing I learnt from guide is the part where I got information on Free Shipping Day (December 17, 2009) and also free shipping shortcuts for other times. Shipping charges is one of the reasons why I sometimes go to the actual store instead of buying something online. Therefore, I am always looking out for free shipping. Finding this piece of information really made me a happy girl!
Not only can you get great online shopping information from this guide, but you can also find great Holiday Deals from DirtDevil.com. There are all kinds of Dirt Devil products on offer, be it Gifts for Her, Gifts for Him or Family Favorites. The offer starts on Nov 25th (Wednesday) and while supplies last! I just love the Designer Series Dirt Devil Vacuum Cleaners. It's so modern, stylish and sleek looking, I think I might get one come Nov 25th!
So, if you are planning to do some online shopping this holiday season, go download your free copy of the Dirt Devil Holiday Buying Guide from DirtDevil.com before you start. Trust me, you will thank me (and Dirt Devil, of course) for it!

First, spread some Miracle Whip on a tortilla. Today, I used a regular tortilla but sometimes I would change it up by using Wheat, Spinach or other types of tortilla.
Then, place a few slices of cheese on top of the Miracle Whip. I used Provolone but you can basically use any type of cheese that melts well (Swiss, Mozzarella...ect).
Next, place a few slices of deli meat on the cheese. I used Virginia Ham but again, it's totally up to you. You can use roast beef, corned beef, turkey, roast chicken, pepperoni...it's entirely up to you.
Place a couple more slices of cheese on top of the deli meat.
Now it's time to roll up the tortilla. All you need to do is roll it up half way, tuck in the side and continue rolling. Then, place it on a George Foreman grill that has already been heated.
Allow it to grill for a couple of minutes (until you can see the grill lines).
Once it's nice and grilled, remove it from the grill and cut it into half.
There you go! A yummy lunch all ready in less than 15 minutes! You can serve it up with some chips, a side salad or even a fruit salad. Today, I had my Grilled Ham & Cheese Wrap with a large handful of Lays Original Potato Chips and a tall glass of Coke. Mmmm mmmm mmmm =)
