If it weren’t for the last minute, nothing would get done as the old saying goes, well that’s especially true now during the holidays. There is one spot in town that we came across where you can get all your shopping done in one spot. They specialize in some Christmas oriented gifts, but it’s a place you can go year round to find any type of gift. David Romero takes us into Lauren’s Hallmark Store here in Albuquerque.

When you hear Tasmanian devil, you may think of the cartoon character “Taz” that roams around recklessly speaking gibberish from the cartoons. Well you may be surprised when you see the new Tasmania devils that will soon be shown off at the ABQ BioPark Zoo. The BioPark and the San Diego Zoo are the only two facilities in North America that will have Tasmanian devils. Joining us now is Androo Kelly, managing director of the TrowunnaWildlifePark.

Jewelry doesn’t have to be fancy to make an outfit. In fact some of the best is casual wear. And there is one shop in Albuquerque that really has some beautiful pieces. Joining us now are the co-owners of Silk Road Connection, a shop that specializes in casual jewelry and has been named The Best of The City.

The Albuquerque Sunport is going to be a busy place to be this holiday season and traveling through the airport can be hectic and hard. Joining us now is Daniel Jiron from the Sunport with some tips on getting through the airport with a breeze.

It’s time now for the 12 days of Thriftmas with Gina Nielsen from Thrifttown.

Parents will be getting their kids some of the biggest and hi-tech gifts of the year, but they shouldn’t forget the stocking stuffers. And if you’ve blown the family budget on the Xbox consoles or a new TV, you can still find something fun for the little ones for under $10.

It’s one of the best and most exciting games of the year. The Colorado State University Rams are set to take on the Washington State University Cougars in the Gildan New Mexico Bowl. Here with me now is Jeff Siembieda, executive director of the New Mexico Bowl.

Do you have a crafty person still lingering on your holiday shopping list? If so, we have a few crafty ideas for you! Here with me now is Michaels craft specialist, Tiffany Price.

Robin Martinez, owner of Kids in the Kitchen, joins us to talk about after school snacks.
