No Pain, No Gain! Right?!

I am really getting slack about blogging, but it is not intentional.  I am currently working full time, going to school full time (seems like double full time) and I recently started attending boot camp sessions with Michael Thomas @ www.columbiabootcamp.com.  I knew I was majorly out of shape...I gave myself too much credit! LOL The first week was difficult but as the sessions go by I can feel myself getting stronger and for that I am proud.  Some days I feel like I need a walker afterwards, but no pain no gain!  Whomever came up with that saying needs to be slapped (just kidding, but not really).

It is also graduation season and I am so happy that many of my friends and family are about to accomplish their goals of higher education.  For me, I have 3 classes left and I can't wait!  I can't wait to get back to my life of nothingness lol.  Seriously this schoolwork consumes so much of my time that I often wonder how I get it all done on time.  But it's all for a good cause --MO MONEY!!!
Shout out to my nephew Xavier who will be graduating from Eau Claire High School and my nephew James Jr. that will be graduating from the 8th grade! Auntie loves her babies!!

I hope that the pollen has not affected anyone too bad...It has been ok for me since we have been having so much rain.

I continue to pray for all families that have been affected by the insane weather we have been having lately.  I hope you all get the aid that you need soon.

Until next time...
Sending Chockl8Kiss
XOXOXOXO

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
