Spot The Partner With CAA Rewards #caarewards

CAA Rewards

I love to shop, and it’s actually something I consider myself good at. Now, if you’re thinking that being good at shopping is nothing to brag about; you’re mistaken.

In the winter, I don’t spend much time outdoors. It’s cold, and I don’t have much desire to go for a walk or get some work done. Life is a little slower and I find myself “relaxing” a lot more. In our house, there has been a lot of family movies playing on our Blu-Ray and many meals simmering in the slow cooker.
