Very first

I am SO excited to announce that I will be doing my very first product review!! CSN Stores contacted me and I have been on their website many times and they have so many great items! They range from every corner TV stand  you could think of to bird cages!


I'll admit.. I actually emailed Jennifer over at J. Leigh Designz to ask her if it was legit. {I didn't want to be scammed}  When she said it was I jumped up and did the happy dance!! 


CSN Stores has A LOT to choose from so if you guess what I'm going to be reviewing you are pretty amazing! So stay tuned... I can't wait to share!

And thank you to CSN Stores for this exciting opportunity!

Itzbeen



Lately winning giveaways has been a little slow for me.. but I'm not giving up! I know I haven't been putting the time into it that I normally do.

This morning, as I was going through all my wonderful emails I stumbled across a WINNING EMAIL (echo.. echo.. echo..)!! Over at the Familylicious Reviews blog I won an Itzbeen baby care timer! It reminds that busy momma and forgetful daddy when they last fed, changed, medicated and exercised baby! It also lets you know how long the baby has slept or been awake! Whoa baby! This would be a blessing in any home!! Especially for those with lots of kiddos running around!

Thank you SO much Debra and the Familylicious Reviews team!!

Scentsy

I was introduced to Scentsy in December when my MIL started selling it! She "scent" samples with me when we were in town for Christmas so I could have a basket party up here in Nebraska.
I gladly did this and got free product and discounts in return! My favorite scent is Snowberry but it has "scents" been retired. {SUPER SAD FACE} So I'm saving the bar that I have, for special occasions!

My aunt found a Scentsy giveaway for MILITARY SPOUSES!!! I love finding military spouse giveaways! From her post I learned that May 7 is Military Spouse Appreciation Day!! Since I'm not a mom, this will be MY day! :)
So you military spouses.... go check it out and enter to win a warmer and 3 scents!!

New computer app...

How funny is this? It gave me a chuckle :) .. I've been married for 20 months .. why do I already find this to be true? 

INSTALLING HUSBAND !
A woman writes to the IT Technical support.....

Dear Tech Support,


Last year I upgraded from 
Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and I noticed a distinct slowdown in the overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, 
Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as NEWS 5.0, MONEY 3.0 and CRICKET 4.1.

Conversation 8.0
 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.simply crashes the system.

Please note that I have tried running 
Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail. What can I do?

Signed, New Wife

_______ _________ _________ _________

REPLY 


DEAR Madam, 


First, keep in mind, 
Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while Husband 1.0 is an operating system. 

Please enter command: 
ithoughtyoulovedme. HTML and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0update.
If that application works as designed, 
Husband 1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.. 

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause 
Husband 1.0 to default to Silence 2.5 or Beer 6.1.
Please note that 
Beer 6.1 is a very bad program that will download the Snoring Loudly Beta. 

Whatever you do, 
DO NOT  in  any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your system resources.) 

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the 
Boyfriend 5.0program. These are unsupported applications and will crashHusband 1.0.

In summary, 
Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software
To improve memory and performance.
We recommend: 
Cooking 3.0 and Good Looks 7.7. 

Good Luck Madam!

one hundred!!

This is my one hundredth blog post! SWEET! Even though my blog doesn't have a theme nor am I consistent on anything I do.. But I'm having fun talking to myself! :)

I thought I was off work today. I was so excited! I was going to print out resumes and write down places to apply at. Then Jeremy comes downstairs and tells me that I have a missed call. It was work. I was supposed to be there at 10. I got the call at 10:24. UGH! Why wait that long? She said she was worried about me, but I know that she was talking trash on me after she hung up the phone. Then she acted like it wasn't a big deal when I got there. Whatever!

Then the girl that I was working with was being rude. She was giving me the cold shoulder and just being rude. Then later she said that it's not like the schedule was just put up yesterday, that it's been up for a couple weeks. I just got lectured by a 19 year old??? Seriously? I just said "I don't care". I was pretty irritated! I could care less about that job, I just wish it wasn't my only job!! So days like today lights a fire under me to get going on the job search!

I thought I had a job but I haven't heard from them. So I'm just not holding my breathe.

I went to the dentist yesterday. I have pretty mad teeth. They aren't horrible but my molars need work! I have 2 cracked/chipped molars [one on each side]. I was making it work until Thursday when I finally felt well enough to eat and I had a bowl of cereal. I must have done something worse to my tooth because I can't even eat with it now. And that side was my last resort! I can't chew on either side now! Soo the doctor checked me teeth and I'm pretty much screwed :(  The receptionist went through the costs and none of it made sense except that I am NOT going to be able to afford it! A crown REALLY costs $440??? I'm in a lot of pain physically and mentally. How the heck am I going to be able to afford this??? I'll figure it out, I'm just praying right now. I trust that the Lord will carry me through this.
*Deep breath*

That's about all I want to get off my chest. Every time I write about this (I tried emailing my mom about it earlier) I want to delete it. I did delete it earlier. I don't know why. I'll leave this one and see how long I leave it up.

Questionnaire!!

Inspirations
 
Favorite Discovery: Oh gosh, ummm... (I just got off work, I can't think!!) I guess I'm going to have to say COUPONS!! I love em! Today I went to the store and didn't hardly anything that didn't have a coupon. And if it didn't it's because the couponed item had another brand that was cheaper even with the coupon. 
Favorite Place in the World: Well I definitely haven't been anywhere exciting. But I love Texas!
Style Icons: Reese Witherspoon
Favorite Designer: Don't really care about designers!? sorry! LOL
Favorite Movie: Well of course Sweet Home Alabama.. have it memorized :) Knocked up is good too!


Clothes
Watch: Don't own or wear one.
Bags: I just buy em. And  not expensive ones. I would have to say I like the big purses but not HUGE ones.
Dresses: My favorite is my wedding dress :)
Shoes: I'm pretty simple.. I love my Adidas sandals! I almost walked out of the house wearing them to work today! Good thing Jeremy stopped me!


Home
 
Inspiration: ha! none YET! I can't do anything in military housing but I think I'm going for a cozy home. Somewhere people will love to come to because they can relax and enjoy looking around!
Favorite Art: Eh, nothing yet. Like I said, haven't decorated my house yet. Although my grandparents have a painting/picture that I LOVE!
Bedding: Egyptian cotton sheets is enough to make me happy! But I want silvers and blues.
Stationery: I don't have any yet, but for that stuff I go to Zazzle
Coffee table books: photo albums :)
Flowers: Gerbera Daisies


Beauty
 
Perfume: I can't remember LOL is that weird? I got it for Christmas one year and I can't remember what kind it is for the life of me! I look for it everywhere we go. It's in a pink, short, round bottle with a blue (I think) top.
Face Lotion: Face moisturizer I like Proactive's Green Tea Moisturizer. That's the only good thing that they ever made!
Body Lotion: Cegal
Mascara: Covergirl.. Orange tube haha! I'm so lame! I don't know names!!
Shampoo: Proactive
Soap: Bath & Body Works!

Spring Fever??

Yesterday I went in to work from 8-12 for a little bit of inventory prep. It was supposed to be my day off, but I didn't mind. It FLEW by! I couldn't believe it when it was already 12! I came home and twiddled around a little bit then took a nap. I woke up after Jeremy had left for work and was incredibly tired (after about an hour nap). And I felt queezy. I tried getting on the computer but sitting up was NOT an option for me. So I got laid around and tried to get sympathy from Jeremy (hehe). He came home early because today he had to be to work from 8-4 for a training activity. After he got home I ran outside because I thought I was going to hurl and wouldn't make it to the bathroom. Then I came back inside and got a bowl, sat on the couch and did the deed! I was kinda glad that I did it after he got home because I felt like he didn't believe me. I felt better after that, so I ate some animal crackers since I had only eaten a honey bun and pickles all day long! After the animal crackers settled I didn't feel the best anymore. So I took some IBProfen PM and went to bed. We'll see how today goes!
