Deal on Nielsen-Massey Pure Vanillas at One Kings Lane

Just saw this vanilla posted on   The Pioneer Woman  and it comes highly reccomended.  I was just looking on  One Kings Lane today and they have this set for  22.00 plus shipping.  The Good news is that if you signed up a month or so ago with someones link, like I did, they were offering a $15.00 credit, which makes this awesome set  $14.95 shipped. 

They may still be offering that special,- I tried it today and it appears to be working, but try at your own risk. If you use my referral, I would receive a 25.00 credit after your first purchase, and you will have the same opportunity. If interested, here is the link.  If not you can find this set at for 22.00. The orders dont ship for a couple of weeks, so it should arrive the middle of December and I can't wait to use it.

What do you say?

My son hasn't seen his dad for awhile.  He recently got to see him at the Ms Walk and  it was quite a shock to see how he had been affected by this disease.   My 20 year old almost lost it a couple of times, I am really proud of her for holding it together as she did.   I guess my ex husband has been feeling really ill and didn't want  Brandon to see how he was. He did however get to go home with them after the walk and stayed overnight and was picked up the next evening. He was silent the whole car ride home ( 45 minutes)   He came home and retreated into him room and wouldn't talk to anyone.  He stayed to himself the next couple of days.  I don't know what to say or how to help him process this.  My parents were ill a lot  growing up, but I was accustomed to it.   Anyone?

crossing my prayers...

on another note:
I actually had a skip in my step as I entered the polling place yesterday.  Did anyone else feel that way?
