*Tap tap tap* Is this thing still on? Are we still here? If we are, it appears that we have avoided the apocalyptic predictions of the Mayans. Of course, the day is not over so it could all go to hell at any second. But, for now I guess we are safe. So, “Happy Not the End of the World Day!” You know that means? It is also “Happy First Day of Winter Day!” To be honest, I’m not completely sure that we lucked out on that one.
Soooo….Welcome to Club Thrifty’s VIP Club Roundup!!! Before we start, take a minute to check out our iPad3 giveaway, subscribe to our blog, follow us on Twitter, and like us on Facebook. All the cool kids are doing it!
After you’ve done that, sit back and get ready to be wowed! You know we like to bring the awesome sauce up in this joint, so prepare to have your socks rocked off!
All kidding aside, we are participating in the national moment of silence today for the victims of the Sandy Hook Elementary tragedy which took place one week ago. Being parents of two young children, we have been both deeply saddened and disturbed by this senseless act of violence against these innocent children and the adult heroes who attempted to protect them. It is with heavy hearts that we observe this moment of silence between 9:30 and 9:35 A.M. E.S.T. Please join us as our website will go “dark” for these 5 minutes in honor of those who lost their lives. For more information, you can go to webmomentofsilence.org.
